Terms of Service

Thank you for choosing Candeavor LLC (or “Candeavor”)! We look forward to working with you. This Terms of Service, and the documents that are incorporated into it, are referred to collectively as the “Agreement.” The Effective Date of this Agreement is the date you begin hosting services on Candeavor servers.

 

  • 1. Services.
    • 1.1. We agree to provide to you the services, technology, equipment and materials (Services) set out on the product pages of our web site or any order form used to select the Services (Order).
    • 1.2. We will use good faith efforts to implement the Services as set out in the Order. It may be necessary for you to assist us in this implementation before and during the Term (defined below) of this Agreement. You agree to provide reasonable cooperation and assistance, and to cause any of your third-party providers to do so as well.
    • 1.3. If we provide or resell certain software or services to you, you understand and agree that you may be bound by additional terms and conditions imposed by applicable third-party vendors or licensors, which are also incorporated into this Agreement by reference.
    • 1.4. You may purchase back up services from us (Back Up Services). Back Up Services are provided to supplement your own back up activities. You agree that you are responsible for maintaining your own set of backups independently of the Back Up Services. If we provide data to you from a back up, it will be provided as raw data, and you may be required to reformat that data so that it reflects a prior configuration or use.

 

  • 2. Our Obligations.
    • 2.1. In addition to providing the Services to you as set out in this Agreement, we also provide an industry leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) located here http://www.candeavor.com/legal. Our SLA sets out our commitments to you, the customer.
    • 2.2. We agree to provide the Services set out on the Order. However, from time-to-time we may modify the Services should a vendor no longer provide components of them to us, the technology change, or to account for our operational needs. We will use reasonable efforts to secure substitute services for the remainder of your Term. Should we be unable to secure those services in a reasonable manner we may terminate the Services, or that aspect of the Services so affected.
    • 2.3. This Agreement grants you a license to use the Services, and any third-party components incorporated into them. Title remains with us, or our licensors. You may not reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise attempt to derive the code underlying these items.
    • 2.4. You agree to treat our staff members professionally. Services, should you use abusive, unprofessional, or derogatory language in your interactions with our staff.

 

  • 3. Payment.
    • 3.1. Our fees for the Services are set out on your Order (Fees). Fees will begin as set out in this Agreement. Fees do not include taxes, which may be added to the Fees. You are responsible for all taxes, other than those on our income, unless you provide us with a tax exemption form.
    • 3.2. On your Order, you may select monthly billing, quarterly (every three months) billing, semi-annual (every six months) billing, or annual billing for your account. You may qualify for advertised price discounts (Prepayment Discounts) if you select quarterly, semi-annual, or annual billing for your account. We will accept payment by credit card, check, e-check, PayPal, or wire transfer, except that (a) customers paying by check or wire transfer will be charged an additional processing fee of ten dollars for each payment made, and (b) customers paying by wire transfer will be charged a wire transfer fee of ten dollars for each payment made. We do not accept PayPal, Pre-Paid Credit Cards, or Virtual Credit Cards as valid forms of payment for initial orders for new clients. After you have established a three-month history of successful payment, Candeavor may choose to accept PayPal, PrePaid Credit Cards, or Virtual Credit Cards as valid forms of payment.
    • 3.3. Applicable setup fees and the fees due for your first billing period (first month, first quarter, first six months, or first year) are both due on the initial start date of your Services. Candeavor may change the pricing for new Services at any time and for existing Services at the beginning of any new billing term. Unless you choose another billing period, Fees will be invoiced to you monthly. All fees are due on the date set out on your invoice (Due Date). Your payment obligation is absolute: you may not withhold, deduct or set-off Fees unless expressly set out in this Agreement. Failure to pay an invoice in full within seven days of the Due Date can result in immediate account suspension.
    • 3.4. You are liable for all unpaid amounts due on your account even if Candeavor terminates your Services or this Agreement for cause, as set out in this Agreement, partway through a billing period. Candeavor may charge your account late fees for overdue payments, and Candeavor may charge you interest on unpaid balances at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less. In addition, your equipment, domains, web content, IP address or other assets may be retained by Candeavor as collateral for unpaid charges and penalties until such charges and penalties are paid in full. If you fail to pay the Fees when due, we may, at our discretion, (i) require you to pay a security deposit; and/or (ii) impose a reconnection charge. Also, Candeavor may use a third-party service to collect unpaid amounts and may charge you reasonable, actual attorneys’, collection, or other reasonable fees incurred to collect unpaid balances.
    • 3.5. You understand and agree that Candeavor will manually reboot your servers, if requested, up to five times each calendar month at no charge, but that for each additional manual reboot of your servers Candeavor will automatically charge you five dollars per reboot.
    • 3.6. During the Term (as defined below), we will only increase the Fees in the following circumstances: (i) the parties agree in writing; (ii) you purchase additional Services and those Services have additional Fees; (iii) a regulated entity, such as a utility, increases their charges to us; or (iv) a vendor adds surcharges or additional fees based on your use of the Services. We will provide you with written notice of such an increase thirty days prior to such an increase; you may terminate the affected Services without penalty if you reject the increase.
    • 3.7. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any network bandwidth charges, storage over usage charges, or other overage charges you incur for using the Services, even if such overages arise because your server or account is compromised or “hacked.
    • 3.8. We strive to bill you accurately. If you believe that a Fee charged in your bill is not accurate, you agree to provide us with written notice no later than twenty-nine calendar days before the Fee is due. Your written notice must contain information that allows us to investigate the disputed Fee. You agree to pay any Fees not in dispute when they are due. If we disagree with your dispute, we agree to work with you in good faith to resolve the dispute. If, after sixty business days, we are unable to resolve the dispute, our determination will be final. If you initiate a chargeback rather than initiating a dispute, or following its resolution, the Services that are the subject of the dispute may be suspended.
    • 3.9. Any new Services that receive a discount covered by any promotion, which are started and then canceled within the first thirty days, will be billed at our standard, non-discounted promotional fee.
    • 3.10. Discounts are available for new Services only, and cannot be applied to existing Services. Existing Services that are cancelled and reordered are not eligible to receive the current discounted promotional rate.

 

  • 4. Term.
    • 4.1. We will begin providing the Services described in an Order on the date set out on such Order. As to those Services, this Agreement will be effective on the Effective Date and continue for the term set out on such Order (Initial Term). After the expiration of the Initial Term for a particular Service, the term shall renew for additional periods equal to the Initial Term (Renewal Term). Together the Initial Term and any Renewal Term(s) are referred to as the “Term.”
    • 4.2. Each of your Services will renew automatically. If you select monthly billing, each of your Services will automatically renew on the one-month anniversary date of the start or last renewal date of that Service. If you select quarterly billing, each of your Services will automatically renew on the three-month anniversary date of the start or last renewal date of that Service. If you select semi-annual billing, each of your Services will automatically renew on the six-month anniversary date of the start or last renewal date of that Service. If you select annual billing, each of your Services will automatically renew on the one-year anniversary date of the start or last renewal date of that Service. Each monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or yearly anniversary date (as applicable) shall be a “Renewal Date.”
    • 4.3. On the Renewal Date of each of your Services, you will be automatically charged for the cost of renewing the applicable Service through the next Renewal Date.
    • 4.4. Orders may have different Terms. As long as one Order remains in effect, this Agreement shall continue in effect. However, either party may cancel individual Orders pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, without terminating all Orders, or this Agreement. Charges for bundled Services will be “unbundled” if you cancel any part of the bundle of Services. For example, if you receive a free control panel license as part of a “bundled” package and you then cancel one or more of the “bundled” services in your selected package, you will be charged at that time for the control panel license.

 

  • 5. Termination.
    • 5.1. Either of the parties may terminate this Agreement if:
      • 5.1.1. the other party breaches any material obligation under it (other than our obligations covered by an SLA), and fails to begin to cure such a breach within ten days of written notice of such a breach from the nonbreaching party, or fails to completely cure such a breach within thirty days of the original written notice; or a force majeure event continues for more than thirty days.
    • 5.2. Either of the parties may terminate a Service if it gives the other written notice of its intent to terminate no later than seven calendar days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term.

      • 5.4.2. Upon termination of this Agreement, it is your responsibility to ensure that you configure technical aspects of your business, such as mail, WHOIS, and items outside of our control, to ensure that those items are directed away from us.

Confidential Information shall remain the property of the disclosing party and shall be labeled as either “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all information concerning either party’s traffic volume or distribution, data, pricing, customer lists, network maps, and financial information is hereby deemed to be Confidential and Proprietary regardless of whether it is marked. Confidential Information may not be disclosed to any person or entity except for the recipient’s employees, contractors, consultants, lenders and/or financial advisors who have a need to know and who are bound in writing to protect the information from unauthorized use or disclosure. “Confidential Information” does not include any information which: (i) was already known by the receiving party free of any obligation to keep it confidential at the time of its disclosure; (ii) becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (iii) is rightfully received from a third person without knowledge of any obligation of confidentiality; or (iv) is independently acquired or developed without violating any of the obligations under this Agreement.

The recipient shall use the Confidential Information only for the purposes of this Agreement and shall protect it from disclosure using the same degree of care used to protect its own confidential or proprietary information, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care.

 

  • 10. Intellectual Property.
    • Each party retains the intellectual property owned by, or licensed to, them. However, each grants to the other a limited license to use and distribute that intellectual property only as strictly necessary to provide or use the Service. Unless expressly stated in this Agreement, neither party grants to the other, and neither shall have, any right, title, claim or interest in or to the other party’s intellectual property, or that which is licensed to a party. Upon written request, you agree to promptly provide us of evidence that you have the right to use the intellectual property that is the subject of our request. If you make suggestions to us about how we can improve our services, we will acquire the intellectual property rights in any improvements we make.

 

  • 11. Compliance with Laws, Regulations and Standards.
    • The technology used to provide the Services is governed by the laws of the United States.

Unless specifically set out in your Order, we do not warrant, nor have we represented to you, that the Services meet any particular industry standard.

 

  • 12. Security.
    • We will use industry standard methods to secure the Services. However, many of the resources associated with the Services are co-managed with you. You agree to provide us with information that will allow us to configure the Services in a way that meets your security needs. Should we determine that there has been unauthorized access to the Services (Breach), we agree to notify you as soon as we have determined our course of action with regard to a Breach (Breach Notification). We may take action, including suspending all, or part of the Services, to isolate and mitigate the cause of a Breach. The Breach Notification may contain preliminary and unconfirmed information; however, it is provided to you to assist in your efforts to mitigate the effects of a Breach. We each agree to reasonably cooperate with each other to investigate the facts and circumstances involved in a Breach. To the extent our cooperation requires us to devote time and resources above and beyond those extended by us in conjunction with a typical Breach investigation, or should we be asked to cooperate with a governmental investigation, you will be billed at our standard consulting Fees.
