Terms & Conditions
You, the customer, as per the details entered into this page ("You") are hiring me, Colin Thurston – trading as Scattershot Creative ("We or Us") to provide website hosting services.
What do both parties agree to?
You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
Us: We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
We offer professional website hosting on our shared platform. You are agreeing to an initial 12-month term of service from the date of the first payment, or from an otherwise agreed date.
This contract will then automatically renew for successive 12-month periods unless cancelled in writing. All payments are taken by Direct Debit.
Hosting provided by us must only be used for lawful purposes, and only for the purposes of hosting your website – of course allowing for related services such as email. Examples of uses falling outside of this include:
- – File storage and/or data backup unrelated to the running of your website.
- – Running additional websites as add-ons/subdomains without consent.
Our hosting is not limited by storage or bandwidth, is regularly backed up, and offers a wide range of features. Further technical information is available on request.
If you’re letting us handle your domain name(s) for you they will be registered under our name and to our current business address (handily protecting your details) and will therefore belong to us. The domain name term of service runs concurrently with your hosting package and under the same conditions outlined above.
With that said, we are happy to transfer-out your domain name(s) on request, to another provider of your choosing, at any time. Please note however that there can be no return of any payment made for the registration, transfer-in, or renewal of your domain – as these are costs that we cannot recover.
As part of our hosting services we are happy to set up and assist you in the configuration of an unlimited number of email addresses, with no limit to mailbox storage space.
Whilst we don’t charge a ‘per address’ rate, requests for large numbers of email accounts may require an additional fee to cover set up time and technical assistance during set up.
We’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience.
That said, we can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them.
Your liability to us will also be limited to the amount of fees payable under this contract and you won’t be liable to us or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if we’ve advised you of them.
Finally, if any provision of this contract shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this contract and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Just like a parking ticket, neither of us can transfer this contract to anyone else without the other’s permission.
We both agree that we’ll adhere to all relevant laws and regulations in relation to our activities under this contract and not cause the other to breach any relevant laws or regulations.
This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.
Parts of these terms and conditions are based on my standard contract. Full attribution of its constituent parts are found at the end of that document.
