Termos de Serviço

The use of VPS services from MINIVPS, constitutes an agreement by the customer to the terms outlined below.

Term

The initial service term of the agreement shall begin on the date that MINIVPS generates an e-mail message announcing the activation of the account (the "Service Commencement Date") and shall continue either monthly or annually depending on the term picked by the customer. Upon expiration of the initial term, this agreement shall automatically renew for the same length as the initial term unless MINIVPS or the customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least one (1) days prior to the expiration of the initial term or the then-current renewal term, as applicable. The initial term and any renewal term may be referred to collectively in this agreement as the "Term."

Cancellation & Refunds

MINIVPS reserves the right to cancel any service provided at any time. In this event customers will be entitled to a prorated refund based upon the remaining period of service. If a customer contravenes MINIVPS's terms of service, a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation by MINIVPS or the customer. Any incentives offered to customers when opening the account will also be cancelled. Customers may be given the option to purchase services which were offered as start-up incentives in the result of a cancellation. Fees charged on a prepay basis are non-refundable, this includes all monthly and yearly services. Under no circumstance will license fees such as cPanel be refunded. Customer agrees to submit all cancellations at least 24 hours prior to the next billing date of the service. Failure to pay will result in suspension up to termination of services and the balance being turned over to an outside collection agency for recovery. Customer will assume responsibility for all collection and recovery fees including court costs. The only acceptable methods of cancellation are a ticket submitted via the billing system or cancellation submitted via the billing system.

Content Restrictions

MINIVPS does not allow the use of services for illegal activities. This includes hosting of copyrighted material, nulled scripts, or anything that is considered illegal under US law. A suspension leading up to termination will be imposed for a breach of these terms. While we strive to accommodate all types of customers your VPS may not be used for the following:

Furthermore the end user is solely responsible for all files on their VPS whether the client had knowledge of the files or not. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure their system is secured and safe from compromise. If a system is found out to be compromised MINIVPS has the right to reload the VPS to a default OS after ample time has been given to make backups.

Payments

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 their order, beginning on the service commencement date. MINIVPS may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the order provides for credit/debit card billing, customer authorizes MINIVPS 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 MINIVPS 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 no later than the due date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle. Customer agrees to pay MINIVPS's reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay MINIVPS's reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.

Law & Acceptable Use Policy

Customer agrees that MINIVPS may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on customer's use of the services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of MINIVPS's notice to the customer that an amendment has been made, or the first day of any renewal term that begins subsequent to the amendment. Customer agrees to cooperate with MINIVPS's reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between MINIVPS and the customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, MINIVPS's commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.

If the customer is an individual, the customer represents and warrants to MINIVPS that he or she is at least 18 years of age.
