BANDWIDTH AND SERVER USAGE POLICY

In rare cases Sipero Online may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, Sipero Online reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.

HIGH RESOURCE USER POLICY

Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization.
Sipero Online may implement the following policy to its sole discretion:
When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available Sipero Online reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. In the event of an account exceeding its allocated bandwidth the user is liable for the cost of excess bandwidth at the rate of £1.80 + VAT per 100mb or part thereof. With the exception of the Brone hosting packages all users have access to adequate statistics and information detailing their account bandwidth useage and predicted monthly usage in order to forsee any excessive use. In all cases the user will be notified by email of any forseeable excessive use of bandwidth. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. Customers may be offered an option whereby Sipero Online continues hosting the website for an additional fee.

PAYMENT POLICIES

All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although Sipero Online reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due each anniversary year or month following the date the account was established, depending on the chosen payment frequency. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless closure notification has already been given by either Sipero Online or the customer.
In situations where the card number on file is declined Sipero Online will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, Sipero Online reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer sends a written cancellation request.

Where other charges are incurred, for additional products, or excess usage fees as detailed in the High Resource User Policy, payment may be debited from the registered credit or debit card up to 60 days after the charge is incurred. In all cases notice of charges or excess fees will be issued no less than 24 hours prior to the card being debited.

All accounts are payable on demand. In the absence of demand, payment in full for the goods supplied shall be made by the Buyer to the Seller on or before the fourteenth day following the date of the invoice. The Seller shall also be entitled to charge such reasonable costs as it may incur in recovering any overdue balances.

If the Charges are not paid in accordance with the Company's invoice, the Company shall be entitled so far as is permitted by law and without prejudice to any other rights it may have to charge interest on the outstanding amount (both before and after judgement) at the rate of 6% above the base rate from time to time of LloydsTSB bank PLC from and including the due date but excluding the date the outstanding amount is paid in full.

No bills or invoices will be sent by regular mail. All invoices will be sent directly to customers via email shortly after the online purchase has been made. At this point the customer's card will be charged automatically.
