Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer’s satisfaction of 59Box’s credit approval requirements, 59Box agrees to provide the web hosting services described and for the fees stated in the Order.
The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that 59Box generates an e-mail message to Customer announcing the activation of the Customer’s account (the “Service Commencement Date”) and shall continue for the number of months stated in the Order (the “Initial Term”). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for renewal terms of one month or any length specified in the order (each a “Renewal Term”). This agreement shall be in effect unless 59Box or Customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Term.”
Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer’s billing cycle shall be monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. 59Box may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, Customer authorizes 59Box 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 59Box will invoice the Customer via electronic mail to the Primary Customer Contact listed on the Order. Invoiced fees may be issued between three (3) to seven (7) days before the 1st day of each billing cycle and fees shall be due on the 1st day on the billing cycle.
Payments must be made in American dollars. Customer is responsible for providing 59Box with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address) At its option, 59Box may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. 59Box may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law.
Fees not disputed within thirty (30) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate.
59Box may suspend the service without notice after seven (7) days of the due date if payment for the service is overdue. 59Box then may terminate your account seven (7) days after the account was suspended.
If customer chooses to have their account restored after it was terminated, an $15 fee will have to be payed to restore the account. However, a backup of the terminated account is not guaranteed.
59Box may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least forty five (45) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).
At 59Box’s request Customer shall remit to 59Box all sales, GST or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on 59Box), regardless of whether 59Box fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.
Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on Customer’s agreement to pay the fee for the entire Initial Term, or Renewal Term, as applicable. In the event 59Box terminates the Agreement for Customer’s breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 9 (Termination), or Customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 9 (Termination) for 59Box’s breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.
Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and 59Box’s Acceptable Use Policy (the”AUP”), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. Customer agrees that 59Box 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 59Box’s notice to 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 59Box’s reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between 59Box and Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, 59Box’s commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall prevail.
Customer represents and warrants to 59Box that the information he, she or it has provided and will provide to 59Box for purposes of establishing and maintaining the service is accurate. If Customer is an individual, Customer represents and warrants to 59Box that he or she is at least 18 years of age. 59Box may rely on the instructions of the person listed as the Primary Customer Contact on the Order with regard to Customer’s account until Customer has provided a written notice changing the Primary Customer Contract.
Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless 59Box, 59Box’s affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, fines, punitive damages, amounts in interest, expenses and disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys fees) brought by a third party under any theory of legal liability arising out of or related to the actual or alleged use of Customer’s services in violation of applicable law or the AUP by Customer or any person using Customer’s log on information, regardless of whether such person has been authorized to use the services by Customer.
