Welcome to CloudAccess.net's "Platform as a Service" (PaaS). This "Terms of Services" (TOS) applies to all who are using any form of services provided by Cloudaccess.net including websites created through launch.joomla.org.
The list below identifies different client types; it is inclusive but not exhaustive:
CloudAccess.net reserves the right to update and change this TOS without notification. The TOS will also be applicable to the use of any CloudAccess.net trial-based Services. By using any CloudAccess.net Service, you are acknowledging that you accept our TOS
CloudAccess.net provides each Client a website hosted on the company’s platform. Each website has limited disc space based on the type of account purchased. The Service also includes tools that enable Clients and their Guests to build a website using Joomla or WordPress, which are content management systems. Joomla and WordPress are web development toolkits that Clients can use to build a website. Services also include the registration of a domain name and SSL certificates. Additional resources for managing accounts are made available to Clients, but the type and number of resources available depend on the type of account the Client has purchased. Unless explicitly stated, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new CloudAccess.net tools and resources, shall be subject to the TOS. In order to use the Service, Clients must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access Web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, Clients must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device.
By using CloudAccess.net Services, Clients also understand and agree that Services may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for CloudAccess.net to provide Services. Clients also understand and agree that Services may include certain communications from CloudAccess.net, such as service announcements, administrative messages and newsletters. These communications are considered part of CloudAccess.net Services and Clients may not be able to opt out of receiving them as they are necessary to provide the service. Clients agree not to access Services by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by CloudAccess.net.
In order to use CloudAccess.net Services, Clients register to become an Account Holder. At that point the Client is issued an ID #. To be an Account Holder with a website, Clients may provide CloudAccess.net with a credit card, billing information and other registration data. Account Holders select a password and account type during the registration process. Just like Clients, Guests must also go through the registration process and provide requested registration data. Account Holders are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account.
Clients agree to (a) immediately notify CloudAccess.net of any unauthorized use of passwords or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that the account is exited at the end of each session.
CloudAccess.net cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from Client failure to comply with these expectations. In consideration of use of Services, Clients agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update registration data to keep it accurate, current and complete. If Clients provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or CloudAccess.net has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, CloudAccess.net has the right to suspend or terminate the Client account and refuse any and all current or future use of Services. Users under 13 years of age are required to have a parent or guardian review and complete the registration process.
The credit card that Account Holders provide will be automatically and immediately billed. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. Please note, unless CloudAccess.net gives notice to the contrary, payment for the Service is billed on a monthly basis. CloudAccess.net also accepts payments via PayPal, check, bank transfer.
Account Holder agrees that each Service has expressed limitations of that Service, regulated in the description of that particular Service. If Account Holder exceeds the limits additional fees may apply.
Account Holder shall be responsible for contacting CloudAccess.net when credit card information has changed or when Account Holder feels they have been incorrectly charged. CloudAccess.net will not be responsible for any fees that occur therein.
You will have the ability to upgrade or downgrade the Service at any time during the term. Such upgrades or downgrades will take effect immediately. For any upgrade in package level, the credit card that you provided as part of your Registration Data will automatically be charged a pro-rata amount for the higher level Service. For any downgrade in package level, your account for the Service will be credited a pro-rata amount for the lower level Service, to be redeemed automatically in future billing periods. However, there will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service. The expiration/renewal date of Service will not change. Fees may not be credited towards other Services. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. Please note that downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content and/or features of your website, and CloudAccess.net does not accept any liability for such loss.
Failure to pay all applicable charges and service fees when due, including, but not limited to your credit card being declined or rejected by our merchant account processing gateway, shall be deemed a default cancellation without notice. If you modify your name server settings or other settings activating your site on another service this unilateral action shall be deemed a default cancellation without notice. If you terminate your receipt of the Services prior to the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable, (a) CloudAccess.net shall not refund you any fees paid in advance of such termination. Your termination request must be submitted to CloudAccess.net. It is your obligation to notify CloudAccess.net of any change in billing or contact information in advance of the renewal date. Termination request will not be processed unless all due invoices are paid.
You agree CloudAccess.net, in its sole discretion, may terminate your password, and/or account, and remove and discard any Content within the Service (including, but not limited to your website if you are an Account Holder), for any reason, including and without limitation, the lack of use, or if CloudAccess.net believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of the TOS. Any contracts, verbal or written or assumed, in conjunction with your deleted website (as applicable) and all its parts, at CloudAccess.net's discretion, will be terminated as well. CloudAccess.net may also in its sole discretion and at any time, discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this TOS may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that CloudAccess.net may immediately deactivate or delete your website, as applicable, and all related information and files. CloudAccess.net reserves the right to bar any further access to such files or the Service. You agree that CloudAccess.net shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Service. Paid accounts that are terminated will not be refunded.
If an Account Holder has been granted a discount for CloudAccess.net's Services and cancels the Service before the Agreed upon period, Account Holder must pay for the all Services used.
Trial accounts will be automatically deleted after 7 days from the expiration of 30 days trial period. We request you to keep the backup of the site if you are developing a site at CloudAccess.net 30 days trial account. CloudAccess.net does not take the responsibility of data after the 30 days of trial period.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and website, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the website, including those of your Guests. You agree to immediately notify CloudAccess.net of any unauthorized uses of the account or any other breaches of security. CloudAccess.net cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation. You acknowledge and agree that under no circumstances will CloudAccess.net be liable, in any way, for any acts or omissions by an Account Holder or a Guest, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
