The initial service term of the agreement shall begin on the date that Cebu Web Solutions generates an e-mail message announcing the activation of the account (the "Service Commencement Date") and shall continue either monthly or annually depending on the term picked by the customer. Upon expiration of the initial term, this agreement shall automatically renew for the same length as the initial term unless Cebu Web Solutions or the customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least three (3) days prior to the expiration of the initial term or the then-current renewal term, as applicable. The initial term and any renewal term may be referred to collectively in this agreement as the "Term."
2. Cancellation & Refunds
Cebu Web Solutions reserves the right to cancel any service provided at any time. In this event customers will be entitled to a prorated refund based upon the remaining period of service. If a customer contravenes Cebu Web Solutions's terms of service, a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation by Cebu Web Solutions or the customer. Any incentives offered to customers when opening the account will also be cancelled. Customers may be given the option to purchase services which were offered as start-up incentives in the result of a cancellation. Fees charged on a prepay basis are non-refundable.

Furthermore the end user is solely responsible for all files on their site including any uploaded from compromised or hacked scripts. It is the responsibility of the client to make sure the permissions on their files are set correctly and all scripts in use are up to date with the latest patches.
4. Unmetered Resources, Limits, and Rules
Cebu Web Solutions may offers unmetered disk space and bandwidth on some of the shared hosting accounts, users are still restricted to the above allowed sites and the following limits on CPU & Memory usage:

Exceeding 75,000 inodes or 10GB of disk space will stop your account from being backed up on our incremental backups, if you would like to utilize our incremental backups you must stay under 10GB of disk space and 75,000 inodes. Accounts are allowed a maximum of 300,000 inodes. Each file on your account including images and emails are counted towards your inode limit. A warning will be issued when you are near the maximum and ample time will be given to correct the issue.
5. SPAM and Mass Email Policy
Under no circumstance may any Cebu Web Solutions services be used to send unsolicited Email. Mass Emailing is strictly forbidden for any purpose without prior approval by a senior administrator. Mass mailing is defined in this agreement as sending more than 500 emails within a 60 minute period for a single IP. Any user found to be in violation of this policy will have their service suspended or terminated without notice. If a blacklisting occurs while an IP address is under a user's control their service will be immediately and permanently suspended. An administrative fee for PHP12,000 will also be applied to the account on file to cover the costs for cleaning up the IP space and dealing with complaints. An additional PHP 2,500 per hour charge will also be added to this fee for any time spent past the first hour. If you think you will be sending more than 500 emails per hour contact us first, we will work with you as long as it is legitimate.
Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer's billing cycle shall be monthly or annually as indicated on their order, beginning on the service commencement Date. Cebu Web Solutions may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the order provides for credit/debit card billing, customer authorizes Cebu Web Solutions to bill subsequent fees to the credit/debit card on or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the term of this agreement; otherwise Cebu Web Solutions will invoice customer via electronic mail to the primary customer contact listed on the order. Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due no later than 3 days after the due date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle.
Payments must be made in United States dollars or Philippine Peso. The customer is responsible for providing Cebu Web Solutions with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address). At its option, Cebu Web Solutions may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed PHP 500. Cebu Web Solutions may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. Cebu Web Solutions may suspend the service without notice if payment for the service is overdue. Fees not disputed within sixty (60) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate. Customer agrees to pay Cebu Web Solutions's reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay Cebu Web Solutions's reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees and court costs.
Fee Increases:Cebu Web Solutions may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a renewal term by giving notice to the customer of the new fees at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the renewal term, and if the customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that renewal term and any subsequent renewal terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent renewal term).
Early Termination:Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on customer's agreement to pay the fee for the entire initial term, or renewal term, as applicable. In the event Cebu Web Solutions terminates the agreement for customer's breach of the agreement in accordance with Section 11 (Termination), or customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 11 (Termination) for Cebu Web Solutions's breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the initial term or then-current renewal term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.
Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and Cebu Web Solutions's Acceptable Use Policy posted at https://www.cebuwebsolutions.com/acceptable-use-policy (the "AUP"), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this agreement. Customer agrees that Cebu Web Solutions may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on customer's use of the services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of Cebu Web Solutions's notice to the customer that an amendment has been made, or the first day of any renewal term that begins subsequent to the amendment. Customer agrees to cooperate with Cebu Web Solutions's reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between Cebu Web Solutions and the customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, Cebu Web Solutions's commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.
