This agreement (“Agreement”) between The Right Aid, (“The Right Aid”) and customer (“Customer”) governs the provision of The Right Aid’s Hosting & Maintenance and related services (the “Services”). This Agreement is effective once Customer signs up for Services through The Right Aid’s website.
By signing up or ordering, each customer agrees to comply with the terms of service listed below.
We provide instant account activation in most cases. However, sometimes we may need up to 24 hours to activate the service.
You agree to pay for the Services on time and in advance for the billing cycle Services are provided for. The Right Aid accepts payments via PayPal for this Service and provides 5 days grace period after the renew date. If the invoice is not paid within the 5 days grace period The Right Aid will temporary suspend services until the invoice is paid in full. The Right Aid will terminate Services not paid in full 10 days after the Services have been suspended.
If you want your account to be re-activated after it has been terminated for non-payment you will need to pay all renewal invoices since the suspension and a onetime $100 reactivation fee. Such reactivation is only possible when we still keep a backup of your data on our backup servers.
Invoices that have been paid more than once because of multiple PayPal subscriptions or multiple manual payments cannot be refunded. The overpaid amount will be added as credit to your account which can be used to pay for future invoices.
Customer agrees to keep his/her contact information and e-mail on file up to date at all times. We will use the e-mail on file to send notifications about generated invoices, due invoices, Services suspension, Services termination, new Services provisioned and any other related information.
We recommend using an external e-mail address so that the Customer can receive messages in case there are problems with the Services.
Cancellation request needs to be placed via registered email only. It may take up to 7 days to be completed. Cancellation must be placed 15 days before starting the following month, otherwise we will charge you the current month and it will not be refunded.
If you paid in advanced for 1 year or more, you are aware that it will not be refunded.
Customer is responsible for the content uploaded to his account. In case The Right Aid’s terms of service are violated, we will suspend the account and will notify the Customer via the e-mail on file.

We do not guarantee the quality of such transfers and you must verify if your account was moved correctly before you change the name servers. If something is wrong with the account after the move and it wasn’t moved correctly it is your responsibility to fix it. In 99% of the transfers there are no problems but we do not guarantee that. We do transfers just because of courtesy to our clients.

Any account on the server cannot use more than the following CPU or memory resources. If you use too much system resources, you will be notified to take the necessary actions. If the usage is too high to keep the server unstable, we will suspend the overloading account so that it doesn’t affect the other clients on the server.

Mailing lists are allowed and the customer can send e-mail messages as per our hourly mail limits however those messages cannot be sent 24/7.
