"us", Providing24.com or "Providing 24". The governing law is that which was valid when the contract was put into effect.
 

1.2 Dissenting, conflicting or additional customer terms and conditions, even if acknowledged, are not part of the contract unless their validity is expressly agreed upon.

1.3 The various top-level domains (“domain suffixes”) are administered by a multitude of different, mostly national, organizations.

Each of these organizations allocating domains has different terms and conditions for registration and administration of top-level domains, their respective sub-level domains and the procedures for domain disputes. As far as domains concern the contract, the additional terms and conditions of the respective Domain Organizations are applicable.
 

2. Conclusion of the contract

2.1 Our offers are subject to change. We reserve the right to make technical and other changes within reason.

2.2 Upon ordering, the customer is bound to the tentative offer. We will confirm the receipt of the customer's order immediately. The confirmation is not contractually binding. The confirmation and acceptance of the contract may be incorporated together.

3. Scope of services

3.1 As far as the subject of the contractual relationship is concerned regarding the registration of domain names, we conduct the procurement of the desired domain only. For the actual allocation of the domain name, the customer can only expect it if this is confirmed by the respective Domain Organization. We do not have any influence over the allocation of the domain. A liability and warranty for the actual allocation of ordered domain names is therefore excluded.

3.2 We guarantee an annual average of 99% network availability for the infrastructure of our
 data centers
and the incorporated hosting products. If the security of the power supply network or the maintenance of network integrity is in jeopardy, we can temporarily restrict access to the service as required.

3.5 Technical details, products with hosting resources and hosting limitations are regulated by the
Hosting Policy. Consequent usage guidelines for our products are regulated in the Acceptable Use Policy.


3.6 Technical support services are always available but not included in the standard offerings. If needed or desired, and requested, they will be charged separately. The "Managed Service" Products are subject to the Support Policy and the therein described "Service Level Agreement".

4.2 The customer is obliged to carry out a complete data backup before any changes are made.

4.3 The customer will receive an "User ID" (Account ID) and "Password" for security purposes. This must be kept confidential. The client will be held liable for any malpractice resulting from the unauthorized use of the password. If the customer becomes aware that unauthorized third parties know the password, they have to inform us without delay. If the customer is at fault for third-party password abuse, the customer will be liable for all user fees and damages. In suspicious cases the client is able to request a new password, which we then send on to the clients.

For purposes of compliance with our obligation to provide information we hold a Privacy Policy ready. It will show you what personal information we collect, store and use.

6.1 It is the customer's responsibility to identify the Internet content as their own or as third-party content. The customer's full name and address must be present. Further obligations may result from the provisions of the Telecommunications Act and Teleservices Act. The customer is obliged to examine these provisions and to comply with them.

6.2 The client undertakes not to publish content that may violate the rights of third parties or otherwise violate the law. The placement of erotic, pornographic, extremist material or material not deemed in good taste is not permitted. We are entitled to block access to the account of any customer who violates this. The same applies in the event that the customer publishes content which is capable of violating the rights of individuals or groups of people, or that insults or denigrates these people. This applies even without an actual legal claim. We are not obligated to review our customers' content.

6.3 The sending of spam mail is forbidden. This includes in particular the sending of illegal, unsolicited advertising to third parties. With regards to the sending of Emails, it is forbidden to provide false sender information or to conceal the identity of the sender by other means.

7.1 For direct damages, secondary damages or lost profits due to technical problems and disturbances within the Internet that are not in our sphere of influence, we assume no liability.

7.2 With regards to contractors, we are not liable for minor negligence of contractual obligations. This does not apply to all cases of personal injury and is in accordance with the product liability law. For indirect damages and loss of profits, we are liable only in cases of intentional or gross negligence. In this case we are liable only for the contract-typical predictable damage, a maximum of 100% of the annually fee.

7.3 If the customer's web content or use of the resources and services is in violation of paragraph 6 of obligations, particularly in violation of legal prohibitions or morality, they shall be liable to us for all of the resulting direct and indirect damages, including property damage. In addition, the customer agrees to free us from all claims by third parties – no matter which kind – that may result from illegal internet content or use of the resources and services. The exemption obligation includes liability for all legal defense costs (e.g. court and attorneys' fees).
 

7.4 If there is a public violation while using our services and the provided resources as well as each case of infringement of obligations under these terms and conditions, Providing 24 has the right to charge a penalty. The amount of the penalty is geared to the importance of the infringement and shall be at least 1500.00 EUR. In the case of the penalty, the plea of continuing relationship remains impossible. In case of persistent violations each calendar day is considered independently as a separate violation.

 

8. Terms of payment

8.1 The prices and currencies are included in our offer publications. The current base rates may be accessed at any time at www.Providing24.com.

8.2 The account will be issued by by invoice for the interval depending on the contractual agreement or based on the offer description. All charges shall be due immediately upon receipt of invoice. The customer can pay after receiving the invoice manually or automatically within the available payment methods. The default payment methods are bank transfer to banking account in Germany, and direct payment through Paypal. For payments via PayPal we reserve the right to delay the execution of the service until final payment confirmation by PayPal.

Invoices are send to the email address stored in your customer system.

8.5 The acceptance of checks is only for processing.

8.6 Invoices are sent by Email as attachments.

For retrospective changes to invoices, which come about due to no fault of ours, we are entitled to charge a reasonable service fee. In addition, the invoice history can be viewed after successful login at the customer system.

 

8.7 Discounts are subject to certain promotions and marketing campaigns and are valid in the context of the promotion conditions. Providing 24 often offers discounts, coupons and special offers for customers during the initial contract period. Please note that special offers are limited-time promotional prices that are available to new customers and are valid for the Initial Term only, and not for successive or renewal periods. Discounts, special offers and vouchers can not be combined with other promotions. Such service plans typically renew at the regular rate.

9. Contract duration/cancellation/place of execution

9.1 Where not otherwise contractually agreed, the contracts are in place for an indefinite period of time.

9.2 The contract is cancelable without giving reasons by both parties at any time during a period of 30 days to the end of the month, but at the earliest on expiry of the minimum contract period stipulated in the contract. A cancellation can be done by email with designation of the personal customer key word, in writing by letter, fax or via customer service system, provided this option is available.

9.3 We are also entitled to terminate the contractual relationship for good cause without notice. One important reason for termination would be in the case of two consecutive months that the customer did not pay a substantial part of the compensation owed. Another important reason, among others, can also be that the customer contravenes or ignores warnings about infringement of the requirements of section 6. Another important reason, that can result in block or determination without notice, may be that the customer uses content, which affects the performance or the safety of the server.

9.4 The place of business for all services under this contract is Starkenberg (Germany). Jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is for the relevant local court if the customer is a contractor, a legal entity of public law, or public legal special fund. The same applies if the customer does not have general jurisdiction in Germany or when the domicile or habitual residence at the time of the action is not known. We are also entitled to take legal action in the country of residence of the customer.

9.5 If the client intends to devolve his contractual rights to another person, he requires our consent. Devolution of contractual rights can only be done in writing by letter, fax or via the customer service system, provided this option is available. When devolution is carried out by letter or fax, the previous and the new contract partners must both provide a signature.

10. Rules for reseller

10.1 The customer is entitled to third-party contractual rights using the Web Services provided to him by us. In this case, the client still remains the sole contractor. The client is committed to all the terms of the contract, arising from the terms and conditions as well as from our product offer information and order forms, passing these on to all third parties and obliging them to comply with the terms. This also applies to the requirements in section 1 of these terms and conditions.

10.2 When changes need to be made regarding the participation acts of third parties, the customer is obligated to cooperate. The customer will provide us with the third party's address and contact details on request. We are entitled, in the case of changes, to contact third parties directly to demand their written agreement to the changes.

10.3 The customer is responsible for all third party contractual violations. The customer is financially liable to us for all damages resulting from third party violations. In addition, we are exempt from liability for all claims which may arise from third parties and others.

System Policy

 

Hosting Policy

1. Counterpart

 

1.1 Customer Service

The Customer Service Center is available to the customer for administrative questions about the account with us and can be contacted by email, letter post or fax. The Customer Service provides solely information on product information, invoices, payments and other service related, non-technical questions. For orders to the customer master data update, change requests, purchase orders, and personalized information, mentioning of the personal customer key word is required to authorize the respective service.

 

1.2 Customer Support
All products include free technical support during stipulated support hours via email and ticketing system. For support queries the client must be logged in to the Ticket System or use the email address registered with us within the customer account.

In general, client support orders are included in the all-inclusive price of the product. Queries regarding individual problems which take more than 15 minutes’ working time to solve are only handled in exceptional cases. In this case a fee is charged after consultation with the client, according to the "Service-Level-Agreement 0" (SL0) mentioned in "Support Policy".
 


2. Monitoring Services

  • HTTP

  • SMTP

  • POP3

  • FTP

  • MySQL


In addition, the system capacity utilization, the hard disk volumes and mass mail sending are monitored. On shared servers the limit of 100 emails sent per hour cannot be exceeded. A system failure will be disclosed in the Customer Service Area and maintenance work will be announced. Status reports will be sent additionally via email to the registered email address of the customer.
 

3. Data Protection
All data are backed up as a complete server image to  be able to recover the server system and data in the case of a total failure or hard drive crash. It is not possible to restore a single account or a web page with this backup. Generally, the customer is obliged to bear the sole responsibility for backups of the Hosted Service Account and be informed that it is not possible to restore any account bigger then 2 GB through the control panel interface. In case that Providing24.com operates backups on account level, it can even not extend 2GB of data per account. Further more it is also not possible to create backups on our side extending a webspace of 2 GB. In addition, we offer different systems for manual and automated generation of backups for hosting accounts. These can be ordered optionally through our website. If a backup service is specified in the information for the selected product, automated backups are created by us. Individually, on demand or via self-access, it will be possible to restore a single hosting account with this backup. If the data is remotely hosted in our Backup Network, the mentioned amount of backup versions/images within the product description can be used and restored if necessary with a verified support request. If the backups are stored on the same local hosting account the backup versions are limited by the available webspace and the customer is responsible to download or transfer the respective backup version to an secure external and independent repository. Providing24.com is not liable for any loss of content if the backup has not been generated and the generation of backups was made possible through the Control Panel Interface. It is the client's sole responsibility to safeguard the account data and to store backups securely on an remote storage for recovering the webhosting account.


4. Content and Data of Hosted Service / Webspace Accounts
Changes made by support, such as the deleting, relocation and overriding of content and sensitive information which will be deployed and/or received by clients can only be made if these requests are verified by the Support System or in writing as a fax containing the company stamp and a hand-written signature. Work which can be done by clients themselves and is possible to do must also be done by the client.
 

5. Changes to Configuration Files
Generally, individual customization to configuration files is not possible for Hosted Service Accounts. This applies to system settings and the services provided. The offered products are hosted in the respective Data Centers according to the system requirements of the operated software or application. Therefore, additional settings and changes to the operation of the product are not required.

IMAP
The number of parallel IMAP connections for IP addresses is limited on the grounds of server stability.

SMTP
The settings which are offered, such as forwarding, autoresponder, spam filter, black- and whitelist etc. can be changed by clients if access to the Console is granted. If not the services can be requested via Support System. Other individual settings and configuration of the mail system are not permitted.

MySQL
On shared MySQL servers it is not possible to change the values of my.cnf due to generally-used configuration. For each database user are as many databases as required possible to be setup, according to the offer details or as optionally ordered. The database user has access only to those databases. If no access to the console is provided, the technical support will setup the required databases after request via Support Center. For pre-installed or managed Hosted Service Products it is not necessary to have a explicit access to the assigned databases. These are individually integrated within the product setup according to requirements of the subscribed product package. Access is not granted for this case.
 

6. Process Monitoring
To enable fair resource allocation there is a process monitoring system on shared servers which stops processes with excessive running times and/or RAM exploitation. Is this the case the requested Website or Web Application hosted on this account will respond with the regarding error message. If the stability of the server or the network is affected, Providing 24 has the right to temporarily or completely block the perpetrator account.

7. Installation of Additional Software
The installation of additional software or libraries is not applicable for Hosted Service Accounts. For Hosting Accounts the customer is permitted to install software on his own responsibility in compliance to the "Acceptable Use Policy" and in accordance to the available resources. On request the technical support can perform the installation after a request via Support Center. Depending on the nature and effort this service will be invoiced according to the actual hourly rate plus additional efforts. This is the sole responsibility of the client. There is no right to claim support services in this context.
 

8. Hosting Account Relocation
Relocation of hosting accounts can be performed upon request. A moving service can be performed from external servers to our data center, within our data center or from our data center to an external server. This service will be accounted within an individual pricing whilst taking into account the effort, the moving volume and subsequent services. The responsibility for the account relocation is on customer side after requesting the service via Support Center and the accompanying confirmation of us. The customer must provide the access data for the respective accounts, FTP data and further information which are necessary to initiate the transfer.
 

9. Spam
The mail server may not be used for sending mass emails (mails with the same content to more than 30 addresses) or unsolicited advertising. If this occurs all the same, the account of the user will be closed. Likewise, it is forbidden to misuse any other Providing 24 service e.g. auto responder or other programs to send mass emails.

  • immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use the Hosted Services

  • immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any Material uploaded to our servers

7. Fair Use
No Customer, Client or any other Person shall use or permit to be used the Providing 24 Services in such a manner as to prevent FAIR AND PROPORTIONATE use thereof by other Customers, Clients or Persons thereto.

If it is deemed by Providing 24, that a Customer, Client or user is utilizing his/her/their Providing 24 Services in any manner that prevents FAIR usage thereof by other Customers, Clients or Persons and/or it is deemed by Providing 24, that a Customer, Client or Person is utilizing his/her/their Providing 24 Services in any manner that is not a PROPORTIONATE usage thereof with other Customers, Clients or Persons; Providing 24 may:
 

  • bill the Customer the disproportionate amount. Additional billing will be in Account Increments based upon average usage. (If an account holder utilizes twice the amount of resources as the average user they will be billed for two accounts.)

  • limit the Customer's use of the Providing 24 Services (limits will be set to the upper quadrant average usage by the customer base)

  • discontinue and refuse to provide any Providing 24 Services. (the impetus for the creation of an ISP was the cost involved in buying and maintaining the network operation. To solve this problem and ISP provides "shared" resources to effectively lower the overall costs. This is not a new idea, it is fundamental in industries like insurance where your payment is calculated on a proportionate basis. Like insurance, individuals can be charged extra or denied insurance because of factors that would disproportionately increase the costs for the other participants)
     

8. Resource Limitations (unlimited Features)

All resources are limited to one extent or another, our "unlimited" plans are not different in this respect. Our unlimited usage plan simply ensures that your service and billing are not affected if your usage spikes or you are using more than the average amount of resources. The inode restriction remains to ensure the stability and fair use of the available storage space on the shared hosting server. If the inode restriction is exceeded, we inform the customer about the need to remove the unnecessary files and reserve the right to make a cleanup ourselves. Currently we grant an inode limit up to 500.000 files for each each webspace. This includes a counting of all files, emails, log files, web pages stored on the webspace ...

Bandwidth, Webspace and Features are unlimited as long as:

  • explicitly mentioned within the offer (Product Description)

  • it is used as an integral part of your Website or Hosted Service

  • you are not intentionally abusing the service by using excessive bandwidth or storage

  • you are not violating our terms and conditions regulated by the Terms of Service

  • you are not impeding our capability to provide other users with the Providing 24 service.

In other words, if you are adding content (images, files, text, etc.) to your site and using the service in the way it is intended to be used, then we will not limit the amount of bandwidth and webspace your site is consuming. Our intention is that, as long as both parties are being fair, you should not have to worry about bandwidth or storage limits. We'll take care of these sorts of issues so you can concentrate on growing your site. If, however, you are attempting to take advantage of the service by distributing large files or streaming excessive video or hosting torrents or something similar, then we will request that you cease doing so. If we find that your web hosting account falls outside of our fair use policy we will contact you to discuss alternative arrangements going forward. It is at our sole discretion as to how much traffic and disc space usage is acceptable. Our Data Center will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. For this reason, we have made provision to regulate the average usage requirements with the help of "inodes" restrictions. Information about the current inodes restrictions are provided on request by the Service Center, as the agreed value (number of files), depending on the average usage requirements of all customers, can change at any time.

 

Examples of what we would consider excessive usage could be:

  • streaming of Audio, Video or Podcasts

  • space usage to backup large files or large quantities

  • using the space for file-sharing purposes

  • using the account to host files for other websites

  • collect email for other domain names

  • cgi script operation which effects normal server operation

  • Chat rooms, IRC or IRC bots operation

  • space usage for downloads (shareware, sound, video, image, multimedia and mp3 archives)

  • sub hosting - any domain housing additional users

  • mirror sites or Sites with Banners, graphics or cgi's running from their domain used on other domains

  • any site whose primary purpose is file distribution e.g. download shops

 

9. Final Provisions

The Client agrees that he or she has the necessary knowledge to create and maintain their hosting account otherwise to request for an optional Managed Hosting Top-Up Service. Client agrees that it is not the responsibility of Providing 24 to provide this knowledge or any Support outside matter specific to our servers. We may revise this acceptable use policy at any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are legally binding on you. Providing 24 reserve the right to terminate the Customer’s Service for breach of any term of this Acceptable Use Policy.

and

  • Free Top-Level-Domain for life time (the domain is without cost for the time that the product/package contract is active)

 

The customer can freely decide and request the desired domain name for registration with the applicable Top-Level-Domain within the terms of the promotion. The registration of free domains is possible at any time during the order process of the promotional subscription or at any later time. The domain is valid for the before mentioned time according to the product package description, as long as the product package which was part of the special offer or the promotion is persistent.

If FREE Top-level-Domains are not inclusive within the subscribed product package, the customer can register the desired domains optionally. If no domain is required the customer will get a Service Domain for free to access her/his website or service package. Therefore we distinguish between:

 

  • Free Sub-Level-Domain for the duration of the product subscription

or

  • Free Service URI for the duration of the of the product subscription

 

These URL's are generated on customer demand or automatically within the respective product subscription. Therefore the customer can request for an individual name for the registration of a Sub-Level-Domain, if applicable within the subscribed product package. The URI to the product package is a fixed Service URL which can not be changed.

 

The following syntaxes are allowed for registration of Sub-Level-Domains:

 

  • yourname.servicedomain.tld

  • yourcompany.servicedomain.tld

  • accountid.servicedomain.tld

 

All Service Domains are subject to the Acceptable Use Policy and the Domain Terms in general. We grant a non-exclusive, transferable and irrevocable right to use the Service Domain within the subscribed service product. For all content and/or services, accessible within the Service Domain, the customer sign full responsibility. We use the right to refuse the requested Service Domain Application and to constrain or cancel the usage of the Service Domain at any time for any reason.
