It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as username and password. It is required that you use a secure password.

3) Zero Tolerance Spam Policy
We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. "Safe lists" and "double optin" will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated without notice.

We reserve the right to require changes or disable as necessary any web site, account, database, or other component that does not comply with this policy, at its sole discretion. We also reserves the right to make any such modifications in an emergency at our sole discretion.

We reserve the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee. This cost of the clean up fee is left entirely to the discretion of IWHS.

Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups. No organization or entity listed in the ROKSO may be hosted on our servers. Any account which results in our IP space being blacklisted will be immediately suspended and/or terminated.

4) Payment Information
You agree to supply appropriate payment for the services received from us, in advance of the time period during which such services are provided. You agree that until and unless you notify Ignite Web Hosting Services of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services may be billed on a recurring basis. When you sign up to an IWHS hosting package and pay monthly, you pay using a recurring subscription with PayPal.  This can be cancelled at any time - just contact us to do so.  When you pay yearly, you pay a single one-off fee for the year of web hosting without a recurring subscription.  IWHS will contact you when your year's subscription is coming to an end so that you can arrange to make payment for a further year's service if you wish. If you fail to make full payment within 7 days of receipt of an invoice, your account may be suspended or terminated.

Payment is only acceptable via PayPal.

We reserve the right to change the payment amounts and any other charges at any time.

5) Backups and Data Loss
Your use of the service is at your sole risk. We are not responsible for files and data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backup of files and data stored on our servers.  If you operate a blog, forum, or other site that relies heavily on the use of a MySQL database, we recommend that you take regular, frequent backups of the database since if lost or corrupted, the content of your blog or forum (including posts and user information) will be irrecoverable.

6) Cancellation and Refunds
We reserve the right to cancel the account at any time.  If we cancel your account for reasons described in this User Agreement, or as a result of you breaking the terms of this User Agreement, you will not be entitled to any refund of fees already paid.  Under other circumstances of cancellation, you agree that it is at the sole discretion of Ignite Web Hosting Services as to whether you will be entitled to any refund. The amount of any refund given to you will be decided solely by IWHS.

Customers may cancel at any time.  The value of any remaining month on a monthly contract will be forfeited and all future subscription payments will be cancelled.  If you cancel during the period of your yearly payment, you understand that payments are non-refundable and you shall therefore forefeit any outstanding credit.
