This contract will be automatically renewed at the end of the Term and each successive renewal term, unless terminated by the Customer. We require written notification of non-renewal with at least 30 days notice but not more than 60 days prior to the renewal date. If you do not provide this notice, you will be charged for the next term’s rate. There are no refunds on any services provided by Totalconnect. The Customer’s billing account will be processed one to two weeks prior the Term renewal due date.
The Virtual Web Server account and/or related electronic services can only be used for legal purposes under all applicable international, federal, provincial, and municipal laws. Further, the Customer agrees not to store, transmit, link to, advertise or make available any images containing pornography. Violations of these or any other provisions of this Agreement may result in termination of the services provided by Totalconnect, with or without the grant of a notice or cure period, such notice or cure period to be granted at the sole discretion of Totalconnect based upon the severity of the violation. Totalconnect reserves the right to refuse service if any of the content within, or any links from, the Customer’s system is deemed illegal, misleading, or obscene, or is otherwise in breach of Totalconnect’ then current Acceptable Use Policy, in the sole and absolute opinion of Totalconnect.
Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, the content of the Customer’s system(s) is the sole responsibility of the Customer. The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Totalconnect from any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, judgements, or settlements, including reasonable attorney’s fees, costs, and other expenses incurred by Totalconnect, (collectively, claims) related to or in connection with the content of the Customer’s system(s). The terms of this Section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Customer acknowledges that the nature of the service furnished and the initial rates and charges have been communicated to the Customer. Customer is aware that Totalconnect reserves the right to change the specified rates and charges from time to time.
The Customer agrees to follow generally accepted rules of “Netiquette” when transmitting communications and content. The Customer is responsible for security of their password(s). Totalconnect will not change passwords to any account without proof of identification, which is satisfactory to Totalconnect, which may include written authorization with signature. In the event of any partnership break-up, divorce or other legal problems that includes Customer, Customer understands that Totalconnect will remain neutral and may put the account on hold until the situation has been resolved. Under no circumstances will Totalconnect be liable for any losses incurred by Customer during this time of determination of ownership, or otherwise.

Totalconnect reserves the right to select the server for Customer’s service(s) for best performance. The Customer understands that the services provided by Totalconnect may be provided on a shared server. This means that one system cannot be permitted to overwhelm the server with heavy resource usage.
If the Customer’s system overwhelms the server and causes complaints from other users, the Customer has outgrown the realm of shared servers, and will need to relocate the Customer’s service(s) to a higher level system with more resources. If the Customer refuses to comply with this Section, then Totalconnect has the right to terminate the services provided to the Customer without any refunds of the unused portion prepaid by the Customer. The Customer is encouraged to contact support to arrange for an upgrade to their service(s).
The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Totalconnect and any other Customer from any and all claims resulting from the Customer’s use of the services provided by Totalconnect. The terms of this Section will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Totalconnect shall not be liable for any damages suffered as a result of using, modifying, contributing, copying, distributing, or downloading of materials from the server. In no event shall Totalconnect be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, incidental, or consequential damage (including but not limited to loss of business, revenue, profits, use, data or other economic advantage), however it arises, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortuous action, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of information available from this web server.

Because the Internet is a global communication tool, and we have clients from nearly every country in the world it is difficult to dictate what is considered “adult material.” However, it is not our function to discriminate against those who choose to utilize adult content or adult related material. This being said, there are still several reasons why Totalconnect has been decided to create its no adult sites policy for its virtual server users.

Domains, Domain Renewals, & Domain Transfers
It is the sole responsibility of the Customer to make sure that their domain is renewed before the expiration date. A domain that is not renewed by the date of expiration shall be deemed to be abandoned. Any site or services associated with the domain will no longer resolve to the Customer’s system(s) or related services. After ten (10) days after the expiration date, Totalconnect may permanently delete the domain if it has not been renewed by the Customer.
Starting December 1, 2016 all registrars must follow ICANN’s new Transfer Policy. This new policy, briefly, states that any “material” change to a domain’s registrant, organization, or email address will trigger a new Change of Registrant process. Any time a change is made to the above-mentioned registrant information, Totalconnect and its registrar partners, will auto-approve the change. We will then send out a confirmation email to all parties. The domain will then be placed in a 60-day transfer lock.
It is the sole responsibility of the Customer to make sure that their account is in good standing and that any related bills are paid on or before their expiration date. Any service that is not renewed by the date of expiration will be deemed to be abandoned. Any services associated with the particular service that has not been renewed may cease to function. After ten (10) days after the expiration date, Totalconnect may permanently delete the service if it has not been renewed by the Customer.
