Please read our terms and conditions of service.
By using Get Web Hosting web services, you agree to abide by these terms and conditions outlined including additions and alterations that may be made in the future. Our Terms and Conditions of Use policy is one of zero tolerance. We reserve the right to immediately discontinue services without liability, refund or continuance of any prepaid service fees. By using Get Web Hosting services, you constitute your approval of our policy.
2) BILLING - GENERAL:
All accounts are invoiced on a pre-pay basis. Accounts may be paid by cheque or direct deposit. A reasonable amount of time is allowed for payment of accounts. Accounts not paid after 3 months from the date of invoice may be suspended at the sole discretion of Get Web Design and Hosting without any notice or liability on the part of Get Web Design and Hosting. Accounts not paid after 3 months from the data of invoice may be referred to a debt collection agency and any fees incurred in the recovery of debt will be added to the amount due.
3) BILLING TERM:

If for any reason you choose to discontinue using our services you may receive a pro rata refund back to your chosen cancellation date providing your account is in credit. Costs associated with a cancellation such as transferring of domains or saving/forwarding data may be deducted from any refund or charged if the refund does not sufficiently cover these costs. If transfering to another host be sure to allow at least two days for DNS transfers to take place. Get Web Hosting can not be held responsible for any of your content left on our servers once your account is closed.
You will not in any way use html, java or perl code that will result in unnecessary traffic nor will you install any client side applications that will result in excess traffic. The intent of Get Web Hosting is to provide space to serve web documents, not as an off-site storage area for electronic files. You will also not misrepresent the site in such a way that will result in needless traffic. Some examples of unacceptable content or links include: pirated software, hacker programs or archives, Warez sites, Spamware, Copyrighted MP3s and IRC bots. Get Web Hosting does not support; (i) sexually explicit, obscene or pornographic content (whether in text or graphics); (ii) speech or images that are offensive, profane, hateful, threatening, harmful, defamatory, libelous, harassing, discriminatory (whether based on race, ethnicity, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability or otherwise) or that promote any illegal activity; and/or (iii) graphic violence. We will terminate any account that does not conform to these requirements. Get Web Hosting reserves the right to terminate any account, for any reason, without prior notice or warning.
not send out advertising e-mail, unsolicited bulk e-mail (UBE) or Spam,
nor do anything that will result in excess mail traffic. You will not
use your E-mail account to receive large files or programs over 5 MBs
in size. Unsolicited advertising via e-mail or newsgroups is prohibited
and will result in immediate account termination without compensation.
Spamming, including (but not limited to) mass e-mailing, cross posting,
or otherwise causing abuse to others on the Internet is prohibited and
will be grounds for account termination without compensation. If you use
the services of another provider to promote a web site hosted by or through
Get Web Hosting, then the provisions of the above Policy shall apply as
if the unsolicited e-mail were sent through our servers.
NOTE: Any accounts caught Spamming, or running Spam scripts, will be charged a $200 clean-up fee.
7) FILTERING/SPAM PREVENTION:
Get Web Hosting
uses two filters on all shared servers to help reduce the amount of Spam
our users receive. Get Web Hosting has chosen ORDB.org, which is the Open
Relay Database, and www.spamcop.net. ORDB.org is a non-profit organization
which stores IP-addresses of verified open SMTP relays. These relays are,
or are likely to be, used as conduits for sending unsolicited bulk email,
also known as Spam. Spamcop will list any IPs that have been sending out
reported Spam. If the Spam stops, the IP is released from the database
after 48 hours. By using Get Web Hosting, you understand and approve of
such filtering. You understand that any person attempting to e-mail you
from a server in the Open Relay Database or Spamcop database will be returned
to the sender. (In addition Get Web Hosting allows you the option of filtering mail you don't want from addresses you can enter in your control panel.) For more
information on ORDB.org, please click
here. For more information on Spamcop, please click
NOTE: Get Web Hosting will open up IP Addresses if we feel the IP Addresses were added to the third party database erroneously. You will need to contact us and tell us the IP Addresses.
8) ILLEGAL ACTIVITY:
Illegal activities, to include; unauthorized distribution or copying copyrighted software, violation of NZ export restrictions, harassment, fraud, trafficking in obscene material, and other illegal activities will be reported to all regulatory, administrative and/or governmental authorities. Get Web Hosting reserves the right to report all such activities.
Access to our servers is for the express purpose of setting up and managing your web site and e-mail. You are not to use the access to compile or run programs that do not directly relate to the web site. You will not view or attempt to modify files that do not belong to you. It is a crime to access any information in the non-public part of a computer regardless of damage or security of the information. Any actions construed to be negligent or malicious attack is strictly prohibited.
10) RESOURCE USAGE:
Get Web Hosting
enforces a strict policy on resource use that all accounts must abide
by. In order to keep our servers running at optimal levels, any sites
running a process that requires more than 8Mb of memory, more than 30
CPU seconds, or uses more than 10% of all available system resources at
any time will be required to move up to a dedicated solution or be hosted
elsewhere. Web sites requiring the following are also limited and may
not even be allowed at all:
A generous allowance of bandwidth is included in the hosting price. A customer who regularly exceeds this allowance will be charged accordingly. Note some activities demand a higher bandwidth usage. These include the following:

Full back-ups are made weekly, and back-ups of new/changed data made nightly. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these back-ups. Back-ups are made for server restoration purposes only. It is the clients' responsibility to maintain local copies of their web content and information. A "Back-Up/Restore" feature is included with each hosting plan and a client can use this tool to back up their files. If loss of data occurs due to our error, we will attempt to recover the data for no charge to the client. If data loss occurs due to negligence of a client in securing their account or by an action of the client, Get Web Hosting will attempt to recover the data from the most recent archive for a $60.00 fee.
