1. Services. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer's satisfaction of Hostlumina's credit approval requirements, Hostlumina agrees to provide the web hosting services described in the Order for the fees stated in the Order.

2. Term. The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that Hostlumina generates an e-mail message to Customer announcing the activation of the Customer's account (the "Service Commencement Date") and shall continue for the number of months stated in the Order (the "Initial Term"). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for up to three successive renewal terms of the same length as the Initial Term (each a "Renewal Term") unless Hostlumina or Customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the "Term". 

3. Account Setup. Your account will be setup after it has been received and/or our partner(s) have verified your order(s) in case of fraud. For dedicated purchases or high risk transaction, it will be necessary to provide a government issued identification and might also require a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and be denied. 

4. Payments.

(a) Fees. Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer's billing cycle shall be monthly or annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. Hostlumina may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, Customer authorizes Hostlumina to bill subsequent fees to the credit/debit card on or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the Term of this Agreement; otherwise Hostlumina will invoice Customer via electronic mail to the Primary Customer Contact listed on the Order. Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due on the 14th day following invoice date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle. 

(b) Fee Increases. Hostlumina may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least forty five (45) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).

(c) Taxes. At Hostlumina's request Customer shall remit to Hostlumina all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Hostlumina), regardless of whether Hostlumina fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.

(d) Early Termination. Customer acknowledges that Hostlumina may terminate this Agreement at any time if Customer violates this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy posted at (the "AUP"), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on Customer's agreement to pay the fee for the entire Initial Term, or Renewal Term, as applicable. In the event Hostlumina terminates the Agreement for Customer's breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 9 (Termination), or Customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 9 (Termination) for Hostlumina's breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.

Customer agrees to cooperate with Hostlumina's reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between Hostlumina and Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, Hostlumina's commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.

Notwithstanding anything else in the agreement to the contrary, the maximum aggregate liability of Hostlumina and any of its employees, agents or affiliates, under any theory of law (including breach of contract, tort, strict liability, and infringement) shall be a payment of money not to exceed the amount payable by customer for three months of service. Customer acknowledges that it is solely responsible for interactions with end users of customer's site or service.

  • Suspensions - In the event a service is suspended for non-payment, it will be subject to termination seven (7) days from the time of suspension.

These arrangements may include being required to pro-actively upgrade bandwidth.

  • Abuse - Hostlumina reserves the right to deny mail delivery from any servers hosted on our network if they are believed to be involved in SPAM or SPIM activities. This includes spam support services such as DNS or spamvertised web sites. Our abuse department will locate abusive servers based on public blacklist monitors, abuse reporting from external networks, and other means. If our abuse department receives a report or otherwise becomes aware of abuse-related activities active on our network, we will identify the server the abuse was initially sent from (via IP and in some cases by domain) and create a ticket on behalf of the user who occupies the server with information regarding the abuse such as logs describing the abuse and an explanation of what abuse took place. We require a client response to all abuse tickets within 48 hours of the ticket being opened. Usually no services will be suspended or filtered within the first 48 hours. If a response is not received within 48 hours the server is eligible for suspension and may be completely disabled until a response is received. Occuring abuse on a client server may lead to service termination or longer-term port filters as some blacklistings can take weeks to time out or be removed. Hostlumina reserves the right to refuse services to any client whose account(s) have been fined or terminated for abuse-related activities. If an IP range or IP address has been blacklisted as a result of excessive abuse reports, Hostlumina reserves the right to issue a fine of $200 and immediately terminate the service.

Approval of the credit is at the discretion of Hostlumina dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability.
