6. Payments & Chargebacks

6.1 We accept payments via Credit Card, PayPal, and Bank Transfer.

6.2 If a subscriber chooses to make payment via Credit Card, the Subscriber agrees for us to store your card details securely with our bank merchant. We will not ever store the whole credit card on our system.

6.3 If a subscriber chooses to make payment via PayPal, the Subscriber agrees to enter into a payment agreement with us, therefore, allowing us to automatically debit the subscriber any invoices which are due.

6.4 The subscriber agrees to allow us to automatically debit PayPal and/or Credit Card for any outstanding invoices.

6.5 The subscriber agrees to pay a late payment fee if an invoice is more than 6 days overdue.

6.6 If a subscriber conducts a chargeback to us, the subscriber agrees to pay us $45.00 for administration fees.

6.7 If a subscriber is not happy with the service they are receiving and desire a refund, they must seek a refund in writing to us.

6.8 If an invoice is more than 30 days overdue and the subscriber refuses to pay, or does not respond, the subscriber agrees that we may terminate the account and demand all outstanding invoices be paid. The subscriber agrees to pay any debt collection and/or court fees associated with recovering outstanding fees.

6.8 Service(s) are made upon a “pre-paid” arrangement. If the subscriber chooses to prepay 1,3,6,12,24,36, etc. months upfront, they are electing to have the service active for this period of time. If for any reason the subscriber chooses to cancel their service outside of the initial money back guarantee period (as outlined in this document), they choose to forfeit any unused portion of funds. For example, if the subscriber chooses a business account and prepays 12 months upfront to the value of $179.40 and decides 4 months into the service that they would like to move to another provide (for any reason), they will forfeit the remaining 8 months of service.

9.3 If data recovery is necessary, we will attempt to recover your data free of charge only if the data loss is due to an error on our behalf. In the event that the data loss is due to the negligence of the client in securing account (such as account being compromised) or the action of the client, we will attempt to restore the requested account and/or files. However, there is a $49.95 fee for this service.

10.2 It is solely the responsibility of the client to ensure all domain names are renewed and/or registered successfully as network/communication/administrational errors can occur from time to time. If in doubt, please contact us to confirm existing expiry date and/or status. Therefore, the client waives any right to make a claim for any loss or damages, which result in such events.

10.3 Domain names, which have expired, may require a “domain redemption fee”, therefore it is always best to renew your domain name well in advance. We send multiple emails to the registrant email address prior to the expiry. You may also check the expiry date on our client portal. If in doubt, please ask us.

10.4 All domain renews must be submitted using our client portal.

10.5 Is it the clients responsibility to ensure all domain name related contact details are up-to-date and correct.
