Appropriate Use of the Services
Surf7.net provides the Services exclusively and makes no effort to edit, control, monitor or restrict the content of data other than as necessary to provide such services.
Client agrees that it will not distribute, electronically transmit or display any materials supplied by Client – or through Client by a third party – to any Surf7.net server in connection with Client’s use of the Services which:
- violate any state, federal or foreign laws or regulations;
- infringe on any intellectual property rights (e.g. copyright, trademark, patent or other proprietary rights) of Surf7.net or any third party;
- are defamatory, slanderous or trade libelous;
- are threatening or harassing;
- are discriminatory based on gender, race, age or promotes hate violate any Surf7.net policy posted on the Surf7.net site including but not limited to those listed in our Terms of Service (TOS).
- contain viruses or other computer programming defects which result in damage to Surf7.net or any third party.
Virtual, Reseller, and Bulk Reseller Accounts: Client may occupy only the amount of disk space on the Surf7.net Server that is allotted by Surf7.net. Additional fees, specified in the hosting plans, will be charged for exceeding the disk space. Disk space measurement includes all customer content and generated content from their web site and includes but is not limited to MySQL data, Mailing List data and data in /home/user directories for virtual accounts. Surf7.net is not responsible for measurements provided by individual control panel software, which is 3rd party software not controlled by Surf7.net, which may or may not include all of the customer data in their measurements.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers: The Disk Drive and/or Disk Space Quota for these accounts is hard quota based and clients have full access and rights to the disk space. Available disk space for the Client excludes the space required for the Operating System, Control Panel and other Services that come with the server set up which is selected by the client. Client has full control of all disk space for these accounts and may remove, delete and/or alter the installed files and configurations. However, removing, altering or deleting the files and base configurations installed by Surf7.net and/or in the case of the Control Panels, is not part of the 3rd party software released packages, patches, fixes and or upgrades, places all software support for that account/server into a fee based category. Refer to our Support Policy for details regarding free versus fee based support.
Virtual Private Server (VPS), Dedicated and Colocation Accounts are limited only to port speed. Default port setting is 1 Meg. Additional fees, specified in the account plan will be charged for exceeding the network bandwidth allowance of your selected plan/server.
Licensed Software Only
Client agrees to use only properly licensed third party software in connection with Client’s use of the services.
Back-up Files and Processing
Virtual/Shared Hosting Clients will have the ability to reinstate files which are automatically archived by Surf7.net upon request for a minimal fee; however, Surf7.net does not guarantee the existence, accuracy, or regularity of its backup services, and therefore, Client is responsible for making back-up files in connection with its use of the services. The accuracy and quality of backup processes provided by 3rd party software, such as the individual 3rd party control panels, is not guaranteed by Surf7.net.
On Dedicated Servers with the on-board backup option, they are paying for the additional disk drive only. Surf7.net will provide and install the backup script for our clients upon request, but the running of cron jobs and services is the responsibility of the server owner. The backup script can be set up to generate a daily email with results to assist Client in monitoring. For mission critical data, Surf7.net highly recommends higher quality off-server backup services than what an on-board backup drive can provide. Doing periodic local backups is also highly recommended and prudent business practice.
Surf7.net reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. Surf7.net, in its sole discretion, may immediately terminate this Agreement if Client engages in any of the foregoing. To report any unacceptable behavior by a third party using the services, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sixty (60) days before Client’s account expired, Surf7.net shall deliver by e-mail an invoice to Client in accordance with the applicable Services fees for services rendered. Client shall remit payment to Surf7.net by no later than ten (10) days after the specified payment due date. Failure to do so will resulted in Client’s account being suspended for another ten (10) days. Surf7.net will terminate the account if payment is not received after this period. Once terminated, the account is unrecoverable. Certain services carry a set-up fee charged by Surf7.net to Client that must be paid by Client in order to have use of the Services. If Client terminates this Agreement, Client shall be responsible for any outstanding fees owed to Surf7.net and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by Client. If Client has retained the Services for one (1) year and has pre-paid Surf7.net for such Services, Client is entitled for refund of 11/12 of the service fee minus any setup fee if request of termination is submitted on the first 30 days of the service rendered. No refund will be issued if request of termination is submitted after this period. All termination request shall be sent to email@example.com.
There are no late payment fee. However, Client’s account will be suspended if payment is not received ten (10) days after invoice due date. Surf7.net will retain the account for another ten (10) days before the account is terminated. Once terminated, the account is unrecoverable. Client shall pay to Surf7.net all expenses incurred by Surf7.net in exercising any of its rights under this Agreement or applicable law with respect to a Payment Default or other breach by Customer, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and the fees of any collection agency retained by Surf7.net. Late Fees will continue to accrue as long as there is an outstanding balance.
Returned Item Fee
Accounts with returned checks and/or e-checks will be assessed a USD $15.00 returned item fee.
Customer will be responsible for and will pay in full, any taxes and similar fees now in force or enacted in the future imposed on the transaction and/or the delivery of Services.
If Client chooses to register a domain name(s) through Surf7.net, Client acknowledges and agrees that Client will pay a registration fee(s) to register the domain name(s) with the applicable domain name registrar. Surf7.net does not offer refunds for domain name registrations for any reason, including misspelling of the domain name. Surf7.net does not guarantee the availability of the domain name during registration process nor the accuracy of the domain name search facility.

Term, Termination & Reinstatement

Either party will have the right to terminate this Agreement upon notice to the other party. If Client is terminating this Agreement, Client must submit the request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If Surf7.net suspends a virtual account for non-payment, Client shall be allowed to re-instate Client’s use of the Services within fourteen (14) days of cancellation upon approval from Surf7.net and full payment of balances due.
If Surf7.net disconnects a Dedicated Server or Colocation server for non-payment, the Client shall pay a fee of Fifty Dollars ($50) prior to any re-instatement of Client’s server. Once payment has been received, Client’s account will be activated within Forty-eight (48) business hours.

It is the responsibility of the Client to remove any data off the server prior to the date provided in their cancellation notice.
