Bandwidth & Disk Space

Traffic will go unmonitored until you reach your quota. Thereafter, you will be asked to upgrade to the next available plan and/or pay for excess of usage. You will receive a notice detailing your bandwidth usage. You will have 7 days to upgrade to the next available plan and/or pay for excess of usage. If you do not upgrade to the next available plan your site will be disabled within 7 days of your first notice.

Bandwidth Usage

If a site uses over it's allotment of bandwidth for its type of account, the customer will be charged an additional $5.00 per GB over over allotment per month. If a site is popular enough that is using more than its bandwidth allotment, then the customer is expected to be responsible for higher charges based on the amount of data transfer. The customer acknowledges, in advance, that he/she will be charged an additional $5.00 per GB per month if the bandwidth exceeds the allotment for the users account. Please note that we sell in a block of 5GB at $5.00 per GB. If you use up to 10GB over your allotment of bandwidth, you will be charged $25. If you use up to 10GB over your allotment of bandwidth, you will be charged $50.

The customer will be e-mailed a notice once an additional amount is assessed to the customer account. Warnings will not be sent to notify customer that the limit has been reached or exceeded. This term and condition is non-negotiable.

Customers have the right to use their account for any type of legal data transfer including providing free image services that can be linked from the owner's account from any other service.

Unsolicited Email (Spam)

Unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account suspension or cancellation. Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation. "Spamming," or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such. Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five or six recipients, is by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. E-mail is a person-to-person medium, not a broadcast medium.

Payment Policies

All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. Setup fees are charged for all new accounts and major account changes and are non-refundable unless otherwise specified. All pricing is guaranteed for the term of pre-payment. Pro-Hosts.net reserves the right to change prices at any time, unless other terms have been agreed upon. Any account not brought current within a week (7 days) of e-mail notice or exceeding this time frame in any way is subject to suspension. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer notifies Pro Hosts in writing for a request for termination of services. All payment is in U.S. currency.

Cancellation

Pro-Hosts.net reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by Pro-Hosts.net if Pro-Hosts.net institutes its right of cancellation. Refunds won't be applied for yearly plans unless you upgrade your plans, the credit of old plan will be credited toward the new plan. Any violation of policies which results in extra costs will be asked customer to pay (i.e. transfer, space etc.). If you sign up by mistake on features we offer, and your account has already been set up and welcome email to access your account has been sent. Your refund won't be granted. If you order wrong plan, we'll be happy to switch to different plan at no charge.
