and supporting documents. These policies are, but not limited to:

Any client using the services of
Visual Web has by action of acceptance agreed to all terms and policies
Visual Web reserves
the right to add, delete or modify any provision of this policy at any
time without notice. You agree to be bound by any changes Visual Web may
reasonably make to this agreement when such changes are made. If you
have purchased services or software from Visual Web, the term of this
agreement shall continue in full force and effect as long as you take
advantage of and use the software or services that we provide.
All new servers are set up after
receipt of payment. You will receive an e-mail including login details
after your purchase. Due to unforeseen complications with various mail
servers and any connection problems between your ISP and Visual Web,
this process may sometimes be delayed.
In order for your domain name to point to the Visual Web server your new
account is located on, you must change your DNS (Domain Name Servers) at
your registrar. These DNS (if you use ours and not your own ones) are
located in your welcome e-mail.
Please be aware that the above
process is not known as a domain transfer. A domain transfer is if you
want to physically transfer your domain to Visual Web and away from your
original registrar. You must have or create an account at Visual Web and
initiate a transfer.
Visual Web will take necessary steps to
register domain names on behalf of the client when requested. However,
clients are responsible for renewing their domain names. Visual Web does
not take responsibility for failing to renew domain names. If your
domain name was registered via our company, you must check and take
appropriate actions to renew a domain that is about to expire. We do not
handle renewals unless specifically asked in writing. If you have any
questions at all about DNS changes or domain names in general, please
Visual Web believes in
freedom of speech; however, any content (written, visual, or implied) in
the following areas will not be tolerated and is grounds for immediate
suspension of service (in most cases customer will be allowed a zip file
of their account): racism or prejudice due to color, creed, or belief;
any violent/malicious/obscene content written, visual or implied. We
will not tolerate any type of hate site including terrorist related
websites on our network. If we receive notice that there is such a hate
site hosted within our network, the customer hosting the material will
be notified immediately. They are required to remove the content within
a certain timeframe or will face account suspension and/or termination.
We offer servers in a large range of locations. The laws of some
countries may prohibit certain server contents and server usages which
may be allowed in any other country. Any server of Visual Web will
underlie the laws of the respective country where it is located.
We prefer that you self-govern your content and remain responsible and
all-knowing of what your website publicly provides. Even if other users
have access to your account, you are responsible for their actions. The
resources and time needed to govern our servers by checking each web
site individually, which have growing and evolving content, is
impossible. However, if Visual Web is made aware of any questionable
content on a Visual Web-hosted site, we will address the concerns
immediately and directly with you to seek an amiable resolution. If any
person contacts us about content they have found on a Visual Web server
that copyrights their own material or that they wish to be removed, we
require a proper DMCA notice to begin investigation.
Visual Web does not make any endorsement,
claims, or promises regarding the services offered by our customers and
will not be held liable for any disputes or claims against said
customers. In no event shall Visual Web be liable for any direct,
indirect, incidental, consequential, special and exemplary damages, or
any damages whatsoever, arising from the use or performance of a
customer web site or from any information, services or products provided
through a customer web site. If there is questionable content on any
server in our network, we will not take any action against any material
or action until the web site is brought to our attention by contacting
our abuse department.

- Use of your server or hosting space purchased at Visual Web
- Interruption of either your own or any other's business and/or financil losses or damages caused by such
- Access delays or access interruptions to our site or the web site or sites or you have hosted on your server or hosting space, unless covered in the server-specific SLA (insofar existing)
- Losses or damages resulting from acts of God and any events beyond our control
- Data non-delivery, mis-delivery, corruption, destruction or other modification
- Loss or liability resulting from the unauthorized use or misuse of your server access data nd password
- Google geo-IP of our server's IP address(es) not resolving to the correct country which the server is physically located in: As we have made the experience that google geo-IP sometimes does not resolve to the country in which the respective server/IP is actually located and we also do not have any influence over the policies and services of google in this respect, we will not be liable for any wrong google geo-IP of any of our server's IP addresses. A wrong google geo-IP will NOT be a reason for premature cancellation and refund of a server.
Visual Web also will not be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind.
