  Ic-webs.com: Terms and Conditions

ic-webs.com Terms of Service

Ic-webs.com is a provider of virtual hosting, domain registration, website design / development and custom Internet/intranet based website solutions. Ic-webs.com reserves the right to suspend access to any or all of a customers hosting / registration services if an account is deemed inappropriately used.

Hosting Services

Virtual hosting is a low cost solution where you are provided an agreed amount of space on a server to allow your website to be viewed by the Internet community (provided that you have a valid domain name).

As a hosting account holder with ic-webs.com you are not permitted to resell or give away web hosting services provided by ic-webs.com to any other party, and you agree that the account and hosting services will be for your exclusive personal / business use only. You also agree to provide us with the details of any other party who may be given access to your services, including your web space (server space) provided in our service to you, unless this is simply for the purpose of an e-mail account.

The hosting account holder agrees to be responsible for the content stored on server space provided by ic-webs.com, and agrees not to allow any of the following content to be stored – whether accessible / visible via the internet or not:

1) Any illegal materials including copyrighted works, commercial audio, video, or music files.
2) Any material in violation of Local, State, and / or Federal regulation.
3) Any material that could be deemed offensive
4) Adult material – which includes any kind of pornography, erotic images, lewd or obscene content.
5) Any ‘Warez’ – which includes pirated, illegal software, emulators, roms, password cracking, hacking, phreaking, IP spoofing software, etc. This also includes any written documentation in relation to such material, including but not limited to, ‘how to’ information and / or links to such materials.
6) Any software, scripts, documentation that will promote or facilitate spamming.
7) Any other content not provided in the list above that ic-webs.com does not deem to be acceptable for public viewing.

In the case of adult material that has genuine educational or artistic relevance, you agree to contact us before you store any such material in your provided server space and await our decision. In such circumstances, you will agree to provide us the material for viewing, and agree that ic-webs.com may discuss / show such material to relevant authorities in determination of suitability of the material for public consumption. Providing such content through password / protected areas etc. does NOT exclude the account holder from these terms.

From time to time, ic-webs.com may view the content of your web space to make sure these conditions are adhered to. Any serious breach of such conditions will result in immediate suspension of your account.

Ic-webs.com is committed to a zero tolerance policy in cases of gross illicit material, including child pornography. If any such material is found we will report your details immediately to the relevant authorities, and also provide them the material evidence concerned.

Services shall be deemed to have begun once payment has been successfully taken by ic-webs.com and all necessary steps have been taken by ic-webs.com to start such services. Customer may cancel the contract with no loss at any time prior to payment being taken. Customer reserves the right to cancel the contract at any time, however refunds can not be made once services have commenced.

Bandwidth / Processor Utilisation Policy.

Depending upon the type of account, you may or may not have an applied bandwidth limit. If so, it will be supplied in your account information.

Most accounts are however supplied with an open bandwidth policy, made possible by the use of servers with high bandwidth to customer ratios. In rare cases however, Ic-webs.com may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, Ic-webs.com reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. Such action is very rare, and in some circumstances it may be possible to resume such service for an additional fee.

Domain Registration Services

Ic-webs.com will act as an agent in acquisition of a domain name (or names) on a customers behalf. Where no sufficient customer details are initially supplied, ic-webs.com will register the name using our details until such details are available. In the case that payment has been made ownership of the domain name will be the customers, otherwise the domain name will remain the property of ic-webs.com until such time as payment is made.

We will act in good faith as advised by customer in terms of administrative contact, billing contact, etc. and endeavour to provide payment reminders to customer via e-mail in reasonable time before re-registration is due. Customer however accepts that this is dependant upon the information being supplied to us / received by us from the relevant registration bodies in timely fashion, and indemnify us against any losses, liabilities, costs and claims as a result of late / non receipt of such information.

Ic-webs.com will not charge to transfer a domain into our services (i.e. so that we maintain it for you) unless costs are involved. In such cases customer agrees to meet such costs.

Website Design / Development of Internet Based Solutions

Ic-webs.com not only provides website design services, but also build tailor made applications for businesses / personal use that can run through your personal web server (windows 98), or IIS services (windows 2000 / XP Professional).

In all cases the design and development process is treated as an individual project as agreed with the customer. We will endeavour to meet project deadlines, but it is the responsibility of the customer to make clear their needs and requirements and supply relevant information when required.

All projects are allocated on a time frame basis, and therefore ic-webs.com cannot be held liable for delays or losses occurring as a result of lack of information or poor communication on behalf of the customer. Customer also accepts that after such project time frame has expired, ic-webs.com may have other commitments pending which will take priority, although we will endeavour to complete at the earliest available opportunity.

In the event that customers requirements change, or are for example not clearly described, ic-webs.com has the right to change such project deadline boundaries as it sees fit.

Since development takes time, projects are often split into smaller tasks. Payment is also split accordingly, and is required in advance of each task unless agreed otherwise. Such tasks will be discussed and agreed with customer prior to project commencement.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, any code / documentation written by ic-webs.com remains the property of ic-webs.com with the provision of exclusive licence for customer to use such code for their business / personal use. Customer may not distribute or pass on the code, documentation, or parts thereof to others – whether for profit or not – without written permission from ic-webs.com.

Payments

Unless otherwise agreed between ic-webs.com and customer, payment must be receieved by ic-webs.com prior to commencement of services. Cheques are subject to standard clearance times. Receipt of payment by ic-webs.com does not constitute an acceptance of payment and thus contract. ic-webs.com reserves the right to refuse service where no participation in contract has been offered by us and payment has been recieved. In such case, any payment will be refunded.

Depending upon the service requested, the method of payment may be restricted by ic-webs.com. In such cases, customer will always be notified.

INDEMNIFICATION

Customer agrees that it shall defend, indemnify, save and hold Ic-webs.com harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable legal / attorney's fees asserted against Ic-webs.com, its agents, its customers, officers, employees, and any other businesses ic-webs.com may use in the provision of services that may arise or result from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold to customer, and / or customers agents, employees, and customers. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Ic-webs.com against liabilities arising out of; (1) any injury to person or property caused by any products sold or otherwise distributed in connection with Ic-webs.com services; (2) any material supplied by customer infringing or allegedly infringing on the proprietary rights of a third party; (3) copyright infringement and (4) any defective products sold to customer via ic-webs.com services.
