   HomeCompany:  Terms of Service
It is our responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best service possible.  In addition to our Privacy Policy, all clients of Qualserv Networks are subject to the following agreement.

Qualserv Networks Terms of Service Agreement:

The sending of login information to a new account at Qualserv Networks shall constitute the beginning of the use of services provided by Qualserv Networks to the client regardless of whether or not client has paid for said services at any given time.

Full 99.9% Server and Local Network Up-time Guarantee:

A refund will be issued to any client affected by less than 99.9% up-time on a monthly basis.  A full or partial refund will be issued depending on the severity.  Partial refunds will be no less than half of an account's monthly payment.

The server and local network up-time is calculated by an off-network server operated by Qualserv Networks.  The up-time calculated for any given month will not include problems outside of the local network/data center.  For example, refunds will only be issued if the problem is world-wide and affects a majority of Qualserv Networks' clients.

Qualserv Networks will be the sole arbiter as to the exact amount of any refund.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee:

Qualserv Networks provides a 30-day money back guarantee for all web hosting and setup fees.  The Money Back Guarantee is subject to the conditions on that page.

Bandwidth/Data Transfer:

Qualserv Networks records and monitors all network traffic for your account.  This traffic includes, but is not limited to, your web, ftp, and email usage.  Bandwidth overage fees are  calculated by GB on a per incident basis.  Current pricing for overage bandwidth is $2 per GB.

It is Qualserv Network's responsibility to notify the client of any overage fees and provide the client with the following options.

a) Agree to pay the bandwidth overage fees at the end of the month.
b) Upgrade to the next level hosting plan
c) Cancel service and pay no additional bandwidth fees for the overage amount.
d) Suspend service until bandwidth usage is reset on the 1st of the month.

Failure to respond to a bandwidth overage notice within 48 hours will result in account suspension.  Clients that require bandwidth-on-demand should specify at the time of sign-up that they agree to all applicable bandwidth overage fees.

Mailing List and Email Restrictions:

Qualserv Networks does not limit client's usage of our mail servers in any way.  However, it may be requested that mailing lists are limited in the number of emails sent per hour if the mailing list is greater than 1,000 emails.

Static and Shared IP Addresses:

Qualserv Networks will assign all clients a shared Internet Protocol (IP) address for a client's web site.  A Static IP (unique ip address) will only be issued when it is required for a Personal SSL or Anonymous FTP server.  Additional fees will be charged per month for each Static IP address.  If justified, business accounts are provided with 1 Static IP free of charge.

Account Setup Fees:  All hosting plans have a minimal $5 setup fee.  The setup fee is refundable in the event of account cancellation per our 30-day money back guarantee policy.

Domain Registration and Renewals:  All domain registration fees are promotional and are subject to change. The domain renewal fee will be $19.95/year if no hosting service is purchased. Additionally, Qualserv Networks will not be held responsible for lost domain names or other scenarios. It is the client's responsbility to ensure that their domain name is renewed each year on the renewal date.

Payment Disputes:  Any dispute regarding payments or service will be handled promptly and courteously by our customer service department. Should your account warrant a partial or full refund, our representatives can do so via PayPal or a direct credit to your card. In the event that you do not contact customer service and initiate a credit card chargeback, Qualserv Networks reserves the right to bill you for any fees incurred from the chargeback process.

Account Cancellation:  All web hosting and domain registration account cancellations must be made prior to the start of the next billing cycle using the Support Ticket System.  If client does not have access to the Support Ticket System, then cancellation requests should be made in writing to Qualserv Networks, 1230 Arch Street #6A, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

Account Refunds:

Refunds can only be issued under the 30-day money back guarantee policy.  Partial refunds in the event of an account cancellation for unused portions of a billing cycle will not be considered unless Qualserv Networks is at fault in providing the services offered.  Any such partial refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Qualserv Networks can not refund domain registration fees.  The client will be fully responsible for all domain registration fees regardless of client's web hosting status.
