IV. “FAIR USE” RESOURCE ASSIGNMENT

Our resource allotments are optimized and dedicated toward serving web documents and self-need email / FTP services and are not to be used as offsite storage for electronic files or as a provisioning service for third party email or FTP hosts. Illegal content such as pirated software, music or other media are not allowed on our servers.

We utilize dedicated servers to host our customers and resource allocation is carefully managed to ensure optimum performance of your website. Any single account is entitled to utilize the server resources up to what is allotted or by what is physically available. Should resources become scarce we may initiate limits on users of the affected machine to preserve the effectiveness of the service for all users.

If we determine a “Fair Use” breach has occurred, the subscriber may have to remove files from or reduce access to his account. Subscribers will be notified of any actions that Jigzen Technologies deems appropriate.

If your website was cancelled and you would like to re-activate the service a $300 re-instatement fee is required. Once the re-instatement fee has been paid your website and service will be restored within 24 hours.

Jigzen Technologies may suspend network access if the subscriber’s account is the suspected source or target of a TOS violation. All accounts of the subscriber in question may be deactivated until completion of our investigation. The subscriber may not be credited for the time his machines were suspended if he is found to be at fault. Several TOS violations may result in permanent cancellation of the account without prior notification and backups will not be provided. The subscriber is responsible for maintaining a back up of his data at all times. In some cases law enforcement may be contacted.

IX. BUY-OUT

Jigzen Technologies builds custom websites. This means your website has its own unique set of files and database. At times companies may acquire in-house development teams that need access to the site files, the owner of the site may have reasons that would require access to the core-website files and perhaps a self-hosted website is required. In this case, Jigzen Technologies will compile the source code of the site into a zip file and send a link for download via email. If the customer were to lose the source code he/she can request it to be resent at any time as active backups are in place at Jigzen Technologies at all times. The buyout price is $600.00 which is to be paid upfront upon request.
