The Services We Provide
In exchange for the fees you pay in advance, we will host your website on one or more of our servers, so long as you abide by the terms and conditions that are set out on this page, and in any other agreements that relate to the services we may provide to you. We will provide the services according to the specifications listed for the hosting package you select during the signup process. For clarity, on this page, the term "services" refers to the web hosting services that we will provide to you. The term "PanelSecure" or "us" or "we" refers to PanelSecure and/or Global Contacts, Inc.
Permission to Host Your Content
For us to host your website, it is necessary for you to upload your content to our servers. When you do this uploading, you are creating one or more copies of your content on our system. By purchasing hosting services from us, you acknowledge that these copies are being made, and give us the permission (a license) to maintain and/or to backup, these copies and make them available to users of the Internet. You are solely responsible for providing all of the content and other data that make up your website.
When the Services Will be Available
We will attempt to provide the services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for as long as you have paid for them. Sometimes, however, for a number of reasons, the services may be unavailable to you. You must recognize and acknowledge that due to the nature of web hosting technology, occasional unavailability of the services cannot be avoided. We have not promised to provide you with uninterrupted service. Sometimes there are equipment malfunctions. At other times we undertake periodic maintenance procedures or repairs. Still other times, there are causes beyond our control like power failures, interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks, network traffic, natural disasters and other occurrences. All services are currently covered by a Service Level Agreement, referred as the "SLA" for guaranteed protection. Our Service Level Agreement (SLA) is published on the web at panelsecure.com/?sla.html
Free Technical Support
PanelSecure's Free Technical Support is limited to issues that are directly related to your Web Hosting Account. PanelSecure does not provide website maintenance services in respect of any Hosted Website. Without limiting this exclusion, you also agree that PanelSecure accepts no responsibility for any deficiency or inaccuracy in any of your Hosted Website that is attributable to defects in your website and/or database caused due to errors or mistakes in development/coding/programming.
You further acknowledge that PanelSecure's Technical Support does not include the maintenance of other direct or indirect issues/problems (but not limited to) such as HTML coding, Website Programming, Content/Data Migration, Uploading or Downloading of files for you, troubleshooting your website and/or database, adding new files to your website and configuring scripts in any way whatsoever. For this there will be an additional cost which is not covered within your web hosting plan/package.
During National Holidays and during some occasional Local Holidays, our technical support will be limited. During this time, we will be still able to provide you with Basic Non-Technical Support via Ticket and Live Chat. There will be lesser staffs attending to your issues so we hope you would excuse the possible delay on our support only during that day. For Urgent Queries or Technical Support you can continue to submit tickets via PanelSecure's Support system at panelsecure.com/support
Backup and Recovery Policy
PanelSecure does not offer redundant or mirrored backups. PanelSecure will run cPanel Backups (daily & weekly) at our discretion. By purchasing our hosting services, you give us the permission to move your website(s) cPanel backups to cloud file storage services such as Amazon S3 and/or any other cloud storage providers. Any backups that PanelSecure runs are in addition to our Terms of Service and are not guaranteed. You may create your own backup of your account from your control panel however these may only be stored for up to 2 days. Our backups are intended as a convenience service and are not guaranteed or intended to replace your website backup procedures. It is your sole responsibility to ensure you have a backup of all your important data. Please download backups to a local source and remove them from your account. PanelSecure recommends that you store such archives off site on your external storage system or on your personal computer.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
As we explain in this paragraph, we offer only one hosting plan through which you can host multiple websites and with WHM reseller access. This is not a single shared hosting account, it is a reseller hosting package and any cancellation request cannot exceed 48 hours. Additionally the VPS server plan that is configured is set up at the datacentre and the datacentre team does not allow us to cancel the service after 48 hours of server activation. Due to these reasons, we are forced to imply the same 48 hour cancellation policy to all our clients.
If you need to cancel the service or require money back you need to submit a ticket within 48 hours after your account is activated. If we receive your cancellation request after 48 hours, the service cannot be cancelled and the service will continue to remain active for the entire duration until the end of the plan's billing cycle.
Our billing system is designed to automatically generate an invoice 14 days prior to the renewal date. If you do not want to renew, please be sure to inform our billing department by opening a ticket requesting to cancel at least 5 days before the expiry date. Once the invoice is paid your account will be automatically renewed for a new term. The renewal fee will become non-refundable as soon as it is charged.
If more than 7 days pass from the date on which any invoice for the hosting services is issued to you and we have not received payment in full, we will suspend your account, which means that your data and website will not be available. If in the following 30 days you pay all amounts due, bringing your account up to date, we will take your account out of suspension and the data will be available again. If, however, 30 days pass from the date on which your account is suspended and you have not made payment in full, PanelSecure shall have the right to delete all website(s) data and website(s) backups. You hereby acknowledge that this is PanelSecure's policy when it comes to data retention, and waive all rights in and to your data in these situations.
