  • We will not tolerate any form of SPAM through the use of our servers. Your domain package will be immediately terminated if such activities are promoted.

  • You can be held legally liable for the content of your Web site pages, for example, defamatory comments or material protected by copyright, trademark, patent or trade secret law without the permission of the owner.

  • If your Web site goes down, immediately call us at (304) 529-3808, and e-mail us. Understand that the cause of downtime may not be a server issue, but transmission hops between the server and you, an expired domain name or other causes. Except for planned server maintenance, eDesign and Hosting, Inc. will give a pro-rated credit, up to 50% of the monthly hosting fee, for server downtime. The credit will be deducted from your next invoice. If your hosting service is not renewed, then we will extend your hosting service the amount of time equal to the credit. The following conditions must be met:

    • Credit will only be issued from the time you notify us at (304) 529-3808, and e-mail us (roger at edhinc.com).
    • Our server vendor must have had 100% packet loss to their backbone provider.
    •  The server must be down 72 consecutive hours or more from the time you notify us.
    • You must request the credit by phone or e-mail.

  • Our server provider does do backups. If a restoration is needed, ask us. However, we do not guarantee any backup restoration. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP ANYTHING YOU PLACE ON OUR SERVERS, INCLUDING TEMPORARILY STORED POP3 E-MAIL.

  • You are responsible to store your user name(s) and password(s) in a safe place. Should you need a new password, contact us.

  • You must be 18 years old or older. Parents, please consult a specialist about possible threats for your young children, before giving them permission to get involved in Internet activities.

  • eDesign and Hosting, Inc. moderates all Web site hosting sign-ups, meaning all Web site hosting is pending approval. We reserve the right to accept or decline any domain name registration request and, or Web site hosting request, for any reason at any time, without explanation. WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR ADULT CONTENT AND/OR OCCULT WEBSITES (GRAPHICS, IMAGES, PHOTOS AND/OR TEXT); ADULT AND/OR OCCULT CONTENT LINKS OR USING OUR E-MAIL SYSTEM TO ADVERTISE ADULT AND/OR OCCULT CONTENT. Do not drive traffic to your Web site from any site with adult content, adult links, occult content, or occult links. The following use of your eDesign and Hosting, Inc. domain name registration and/or hosting of Web site pages is NOT allowed:

    • Copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret or other intellectual property infringement, including but not limited to offering pirated computer programs or links to such programs, serial or registration numbers for software programs, copyrighted music, copyrighted images; copyrighted texts, etc.
    • Material that exploits children under 18 years of age;
    • Displaying material containing nudity or pornographic material (graphics, images, photos and/or text) of any kind;

    • Promoting or providing information about illegal activities, promoting physical harm or injury against any group or individual, or promoting any act of cruelty to animals;
    • Defaming any person or group;
    • Violating Internet standards for the purpose of promoting your home page;
    • Conducting raffles or contests that require any type of entry fee;
    • Developing pages that consist of hyperlinks to content not allowed by eDesign and Hosting, Inc.
    • Gathering personally identifiable information for commercial or unlawful purposes.
  • We are often asked how many e-mail accounts you may have. We aren't going to say unlimited, but to date we've always been able to provide as many as needed. We do ask, though, that you keep a clean e-mail box by deleting outdated and unwanted content. If you have e-mail that you want to store for long periods of time, then we ask that you forward that to an online e-mail service, or download it to your computer.

  • Please let us express a word about e-mail you originate through our server. We ask that you show the same courtesy through e-mail that you would show a guest in your own apartment, home or office. Please avoid being rude, obscene, or just plain obnoxious. Adult content won't be tolerated and would be reason for termination of your account. Simply stated, write your e-mails so that you would never be embarrassed if the recipient were to share what you wrote, or attached, with someone else.

    • By the way, eDesign and Hosting, Inc. does not make your e-mail address available to third parties.

  • eDesign and Hosting, Inc. is NOT a judge. We advise both parties in a dispute about any Web site content to resolve the matter between them and/or with the respective authorities.

  • eDesign and Hosting, Inc. shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss you incur due to what is typically termed "Acts of God" (unforeseen and uncontrollable natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, severe storms, fire, flood, the death of either or both owners, etcetera). Likewise, we shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss you incur due to any civil unrest (anarchy, riots, etcetera) or "Acts of War," declared or undeclared. "Any loss" is all inclusive, including CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, your Web site that we designed, you designed, and your domain name, anything you place on our servers, or in our trust, including advance financial payments. You are also ultimately responsible for your own domain name registrations and renewals, even if you secured your domain name through us. If you need assistance with backups, domain name registrations and renewals or anything else to do with our services, contact us by e-mail (roger at edhinc.com) and call (304) 529-3808.

  • We are an authorized reseller for Bulk Register. They do not give us any refunds on domain name registrations. Therefore we cannot issue refunds on domain names. Also, failure to renew a domain name means that Bulk Register, at their sole discretion, may ultimately auction off your expired domain name to whoever wants to buy it, and they may use the expired domain name for any purpose, regardless of whether you agree with how they use the domain name, or not.

  • You agree that failure to pay according to billing for a domain name will result in your Web site being unavailable, even though we are still hosting the Web site. Failure to pay according to billing for Web site hosting may result in the suspension of your Web site, and at our discretion, cancellation of your Web site hosting. (We are not responsible for any loss of data, and as previously stated, you are responsible for your own backups.) There are no refunds so long as your Web site remains on our servers. In the event your Web site hosting is cancelled by either party, there are no refunds for the current month. Also, there are no refunds for setup fees.

  • For any Web site we design, the content you supply is yours, the design and any other content belongs to eDesign and Hosting, Inc., and or its licensors. All rights reserved.

  • Sunday is the Lord's day and therefore eDesign and Hosting, Inc. honors that day of rest. We do check our voice mail and e-mail on Sunday. However, unless it is urgent, we wait until the next working day to reply. Thank you for your understanding.

  • eDesign and Hosting, Inc. will reserve the right to amend this document from time to time without notice. You may review this agreement at any time by going to the http://www.edhinc.com/terms/ Web site page.

  • These terms and conditions were last updated April 9, 2014. You are responsible to review these terms and conditions anytime your billing shows a new update date.
