In this Web Hosting Service Agreement (“Agreement”) “you” and “your” refer to each customer, “we”, us” and “our” refer to Harley Young Media or HYM. “Services” refers to the services provided by us, including our web hosting services. This Agreement explains our obligations to you, and explains your obligations to us for various Services. By selecting our Services you have agreed to establish an account with us for such Services. By using the Services under this Agreement, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement and any pertinent rules or policies that are or may be published by us.
2. FEES, PAYMENT AND TERM.
As consideration for the services you have selected, you agree to pay us the applicable service(s) fees. All fees payable hereunder are non-refundable. As further consideration for the Services, you agree to: (1) provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you as required by the registration process and (2) maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. All such information shall be referred to as account information (“Account Information”). You hereby grant us the right to disclose to third parties as needed to maintain your services. By submitting to this Agreement, you represent that the statements you have made in are true and you will not use our Services for any unlawful purpose.
If you have purchased a package that is billed monthly you will receive an invoice monthly issued on the day of your first purchase of ANY products. If you have purchased a package that is billed yearly you will receive an invoice every year issued on the day of your first purchase of ANY products.
If you do not wish to renew your Monthly or Annual Service agreement you must cancel your account in writing. Canceling an account does not equal “refunding” an account. A cancellation refers to the removal of user materials from our systems and the deactivation of services. You will be required to pay any outstanding charges owed. Domain Name Registrations CANNOT be cancelled. As the purchaser of the Domain Name you are the Domain Name’s owner until the term of the Domain Name’s registration has expired.
2c. BANK FEES.
All bank fees incurred by us due to uncovered cheques will be passed on to you.
2d. SERVICE CHANGES.
You are allowed to change your Web Site Hosting package once for free. Changing your Package means moving from an FTP account to a FrontPage account or from Monthly billing to Yearly billing. After moving once you will be charged $49.95 per alteration.
3. BILLING FOR ADDITIONAL FILE TRANSFERS.
HYM automatically bills customers for excess file transfer (“bandwidth”) usage. Customers are allocated a set amount of file transfer with their hosting service depending on the package level purchased. If you exceed the amount of file transfer you receive as part of your package you will be billed $4.95 per 100MB. This charge is incurred without notification. The overage is calculated by monitoring the amount and size of the files transferred from your account. These charges are made at the sole discretion of HYM and are non disputable.
4. ILLEGAL USE.
HYM servers may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or distribution of any information, data, or material in violation of any applicable law or regulation is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material; trademarks; trade secrets or other intellectual property rights used without proper authorization; material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws.
Violations of system or network security are prohibited and may result in criminal and civil liability. Examples include but are not limited to the following: unauthorized access, use, probing, or scanning of systems security or authentication measures, data, or traffic; interference with service to any user, host, or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system, broadcast attacks; forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.

Depending on the severity of the violation, HYM may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer’s web hosting account and/or pursue other civil remedies.
