"Database Mart LLC" provides web hosting, domain name registration, SSL certificates and other services to many different kind of clients. Therefore we have the responsibility to protect each of our clients and their interests and to provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to ensure that these obligations are met.
You agree not to misuse the "Database Mart LLC" services or help anyone else to do so. The following is a list of actions that will cause direct suspend/cancel/terminate your service without the possibility of refund:
We do not permit sites and databases on the shared servers that use more than 10% of system resources (including CPU, memory, disk space, bandwidth and other resources), or sites which in the our view are detrimental to the enjoyment of the services by the other clients. If at any time the client's website affects the performance of the other client sites on the server, we reserves the full right to offer client the option of upgrading to a hosting plan that would be more suitable such as dedicated server plans or if serious enough to suspend or terminate the client's web site.
Shared hosting space may only be used for web files, active email and content of User Websites. Shared hosting space may not be used for storage (whether of media, emails, or other data), including, as offsite storage of electronic files, email or FTP hosts.
"Database Mart LLC" accepts orders from outside the United States, but may limit accounts from certain countries or from certain known email domains that have or have previously had a high fraud rate. Countries that are sanctioned by the United States Department of Treasury are automatically ineligible for services with "Database Mart LLC".
To help protect "Database Mart LLC" and its clients from fraud, "Database Mart LLC" may ask you to provide a copy of a government issued identification that has a photo and/or a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and denied.
If any manner of communication with "Database Mart LLC"'s staff could be construed as belligerent, vulgar (curse words), attacking, highly rude, threatening, or abusive, you will be issued one warning. If the communication continues, your account may be suspended or terminated without refund. This includes, but is not limited to, threats to sue, slander, libel, publicly post, or initiate a chargeback.
Any customer that violates one of our Terms of Services, your service where the violation has occurred will be immediately cancelled along with all services that you have with "Database Mart LLC". Additionally, you will become ineligible for any other service(s) with "Database Mart LLC".
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion and with no further justification.
We backup all our shared hosting, reseller hosting and Hyper-V/VPS servers regularly. This service will provide the peace of mind that if the server should fail for any reason we can quickly and completely restore your site or server.
Your shared or reseller account will be excluded from the backup service if it is using over 10GB disk space.
We recommend that clients keep an up to date backup of their own sites or servers as this service is intended for disaster recovery to restore an entire server rather than an individual site or server. Individual site or server can ONLY be restored, in the event of clients accidentally deleting their data, for a non-refundable $25.00 fee for each occurrence. The owner or reseller is ultimately responsible in the event the data cannot be copied as the last point as the original server. We will make all attempts to restore the data but it is not guaranteed.
"Database Mart LLC" will maintain and control ownership of all Internet Protocol ("IP") numbers and addresses that Database Mart may assign to you. Database Mart may, in its sole discretion, change or remove any and all IP numbers and addresses.
Any dedicated IP order, in addition to ones provided with a hosting package, may be subject to IP justification. Justification practices are subject to change to remain in conformity with policies of American Registry for Internet Numbers ("ARIN"). "Database Mart LLC" reserves the right to deny any dedicated IP request based on insufficient justification or current IP utilization.
"Database Mart LLC" provides 24/7/365 technical support to our clients. We limit our technical support to our area of expertise. The following are our guidelines when providing support:

We are not "HIPAA compliant." Clients are solely responsible for any applicable compliance with federal or state laws governing the privacy and security of personal data, including medical or other sensitive data. Clients acknowledge that the services may not be appropriate for the storage or control of access to sensitive data, such as information about children or medical or health information. "Database Mart LLC" does not control or monitor the information or data you store on, or transmit through, our services. We specifically disclaim any representation or warranty that the services, as offered, comply with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA").

The U.S. Department of the Treasury, through the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC"), prohibits U.S. companies from engaging in all or certain commercial activities with certain sanctioned countries (each a “Sanctioned Country”) and certain individuals, organizations or entities, including without limitation, certain “Specially Designated Nationals” (“SDN”) listed by OFAC.

A $40 chargeback fee (issued to recoup mandatory fees passed on to "Database Mart LLC" by the credit card company), plus any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s), must be paid in full before service is restored. Instead of issuing a chargeback, please contact "Database Mart LLC"'s billing team to address any billing issues.

If you are not satisfied with our services for any reason during the first 30 days of your new account, we will refund your web hosting fees. Unfortunately we are not able to refund the setup fees (if there are any) as this is a one-time fee to activate your account. The 30 day money back guarantee only applies to shared, reseller hosting services and Hyper-V/VPS servers.

"Database Mart LLC" is not responsible for resolving any domain disputes. If you have a complaint about the issue of ownership or wording of the domain name itself (as opposed to the content hosted on the associated website), that matter will need to be taken up with the domain name owner directly, or should be filed in a UDRP or court proceeding. Our internal policies, as well as ICANN regulations, prevent us from acting as the arbiter of domain name disputes; we are only able to assist with complaints regarding the content of a hosted website (as opposed to the wording of the domain name registered).
ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "UDRP") is a method for resolving domain disputes relating to abusive domain registrations (for example, cybersquatting or trademark infringement). Please refer to http://www.icann.org/en/help/dndr/udrp for more information.
