Ihelm Enterprises Hosting Services

You agree to use the servers on the condition that your use will not involve any activity that is or could be construed to be illegal or in violation of statutes, laws or codes of conduct. You will not use our servers or services to seek or to gain access to any resource for which you do not have authorisation. You will not use our servers or services to breach the security arrangements of any server or to explore such security arrangements or to prevent such security arrangements from working as they were intended to work. You will not use our servers or services to engage in denial of service operations of any form, including but not restricted to overloading, flooding, bombing and other hostile activities.

Ihelm Enterprises reserves the right to suspend any account where activity in breach of these terms is discovered. Ihelm Enterprises reserves the right to terminate any agreement where a contravention of these terms can be shown and the client fails to provide an acceptable explanation of the circumstances within seven days. The client may be liable to criminal or civil proceedings and Ihelm Enterprises may be required to provide evidence in support of such actions. Any costs incurred by Ihelm Enterprises will be charged to the client.

The use of our hosting facilities

By using our hosting facilities, you agree to the following conditions.

You agree not to implement any scripting tool to provide shell access to the server without explicit permission from Ihelm Enterprises.

You agree not to allow anonymous users to use your site as a proxy.

You agree to limit any mass emailing to not more than one operation per week and that the scope of such operation shall not exceed twenty percent of the bandwidth allocated for your use per month.

Spam is a universal nuisance and Ihelm Enterprises is committed to policies and procedures that are designed to combat its use. You agree that you will not use our servers or services in spam-related activities. You will not send spam and you will manage your use of our servers so as not to allow third parties to send spam via our servers or services.

You agree to provide and maintain with us a current email address via which you can be contacted and those communications sent via that email address are deemed as having been received by you.  Failure to notify us of a change in contact details could result in your hosting account being suspended.  It is important that you notify us immediately of any change in contact details so we can ensure that all invoices, statement reminders, and information about your hosting account is sent to the correct e-mail address.

Ihelm Enterprises reserves the right to charge you in respect of any costs incurred in resolving problems resulting from any activity that is deemed by us to be contrary to the terms of use defined herein, whether attributable directly or indirectly to you. The charge is currently £40 per hour.

You agree not to use our servers or services to propagate content that contravenes any laws. Content must not be offensive, libelous, obscene, threatening, abusive, racist, likely to cause unrest, likely to incur civil liability or capable of being interpreted as any of the above. Ihelm Enterprises reserves the right to suspend any account that in its sole discretion contravenes any of the above and to terminate such account if the client fails within seven days to justify its content.

The company has a duty of care to the availability of its clients websites. As a result, whilst a client may be within bandwidth and disk space usage, the nature of dynamic websites may mean that a client consumes excessive resources. Unless a dedicated server has been provided any site which consumes over 5 percent of the available resource allocation on the company’s servers will be notified and should take corrective action within 14 days. Such notifications are rare and can usually be fixed by optimizing database queries/updating scripts. In the rare occurrence where these do not return the site to its normal state, Ihelm Enterprises will offer upgrades to higher specification servers where restrictions are less. Failure to rectify this may lead to a loss of services.

All hosting accounts must have fees paid on a regular basis, failure to pay these fees may lead to your account being suspended. If an account is suspended Ihelm Enterprises will not be liable for any lost business or financial loss incurred during this period. Where an account has been purchased with a domain name from Ihelm Enterprises further fees may be payable for the recovery of the domain from the registrars ‚ these fees must be paid before Ihelm Enterprises will attempt to recover lost domain names.

Please note that unless otherwise instructed your hosting account will automatically be renewed.  Once the renewal date has passed and we haven’t received any payment, you will receive three reminders to the e-mail address we hold on file.  If we do not receive payment within 7 days of the final reminder, the account will be suspended.  If you wish the account to be unsuspended, you will need to pay all of the amounts in arrears that are due.

Sites hosted utilising a dedicated IP address must have their renewals paid by the due date. Failure to do so may result in the IP address being re-allocated to another client due to the cost of providing these dedicated IP addresses. If an IP address is re-allocated Ihelm Enterprises may not be able to obtain the original IP address for use again. As a result, subsequent loss of connectivity will occur. Failure to pay by the due date may result in loss of connectivity and related services.

We will not provide your hosting account details to anyone, unless we have an instruction from you via e-mail to say that we are able to share those details.

Force Majeure

Neither we nor the client shall be liable for breaching this Agreement where that breach results from Force Majeure.

Force Majeure refers to any event that is beyond the reasonable control of the parties and includes, but is not limited to, acts of God; acts of war; national emergencies; governmental action; union action; civil unrest; fire; explosion; flood and theft.

The deposit secures Ihelm Enterprises for your project on the condition that the project commences within 3 months of the deposit being paid and is returnable only if Ihelm Enterprises cancels the work on your project.

In the case of client cancellation, unless cancelled within 7 days of receiving the contract and paying the 20%, the deposit is non-refundable.

All Web Design clients receive 3 months unlimited support from the day their website goes live. After the 3 months, clients will receive standard support which is charged at a rate of £20.00/hour, unless pre-arranged.

Ihelm Enterprises Bookkeeping services

All bookkeeping jobs will be dealt with on a first come first serve basis. You will be notified if any delays are expected due to high levels of prior work when jobs are commissioned (high levels are expected at the end of the tax year).
