On the Client's request, ITSimple shall host an Existing Domain Name owned by the Client provided that the Client shall be solely responsible for the transfer of the Existing Domain Name to the ITSimple server on or after the commencement of any Agreement and for any fees payable to any third party in relation to such transfer.

In consideration for renewal of the Domain Name or the Existing Domain Name by ITSimple and prior to the renewal date, the Client shall pay to ITSimple the renewal fee set out in the Price List. Whilst ITSimple will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Domain Name or the Existing Domain Name is renewed at the relevant renewal date, the Client acknowledges that it is not possible for ITSimple to guarantee such renewal and that ITSimple shall not be liable for any failure to renew the Domain Name or the Existing Domain Name.
DESIGN AND HOSTING
ITSimple shall offer the Client one of the options below selected by the Client on the Application. The following options shall be available:
Option 1 :ITSimple will provide the Client with a Website based upon our SimpleWeb plan, full details of which can be found on www.itsimple.co.uk/prices.htm. Prices pertaining to the plans can be found at www.itsimple.co.uk/prices.htm. Generally, these plans have a low initial fee basis and a monthly fee payable by Standing Order to ITSimple by the Client.
Option 2 : ITSimple will provide the client with a Website designed and tailored to meet their requirements. Such design shall be made following discussions with the Client and the Client agrees to provide ITSimple with such artwork, text and graphics that will facilitate the production of the Website. This option shall have a supplemental contract between ITSimple and the Client which can be viewed, downloaded, signed and returned here.
For both Options, such design and technology used in the website shall feature commonly available scripts and services such that the website shall function in the manner described during discussions with the client. Reasonable care will be taken to provide a secure environment for those pages in the website that require such security and for the website as a whole however the Client agrees that such security can never be wholly guaranteed. All material submitted for inclusion on the Website must be owned by the Client. The Client agrees to keep ITSimple indemnified in respect of any loss, damages, costs, or other expenses arising out of or in connection with the use of the website or any breach by the Client of these Terms and Conditions.
For all the above options, the Client shall pay to ITSimple the fee specified in the Price List. Whilst ITSimple shall use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Website can be accessed by users of the Internet at all times, the Client acknowledges that it is technically impossible to provide such access free of fault at all times and ITSimple does not undertake to do so. ITSimple expressly reserves the right to suspend availability of the Website for the purpose of necessary or scheduled maintenance. Access to the Website may also be adversely affected by conditions and performance outside ITSimple's control, including without limitation, the breakdown of transmission and telecommunication links.
The copyright for the text and graphics produced by you for inclusion in the website are yours. However, where scripts and services used within the website to facilitate the functionality of the website are licensed to ITSimple for its use, the copyright to such scripts and services remain with the originators of those scripts and the terms and conditions for their use remain with them. Such scripts and services are not owned by the client and are not transferable to the client.
Whilst ITSimple shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that backup copies of the Website and all Client data contained in the Website are made at reasonable intervals, the Client shall be solely responsible for the backup of such data and ITSimple shall not be liable for any damages, loss, costs or other expenses arising out of or in connection with any loss of data which are due to the failure of the Client or ITSimple to backup such data.
The fees payable to ITSimple in respect of the Services are specified in the ITSimple Price List. All charges are exclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate. All charges shall be payable in advance whether or not the payments are made annually, quarterly, or monthly. Any failure by the Client to pay any fees due under these Terms and Conditions on the date specified shall be deemed to a "material breach" of these Terms and Conditions. If the Client is overdue with any payments hereunder, then without prejudice to ITSimple's other rights and remedies the Client accepts that immediate removal of web content, updating facilities and any other service deemed by ITSimple to be within the scope of this agreement. Reinstatement shall only occur when all monies owed have been paid to ITSimple and any such reinstatement shall be at the sole discretion of ITSimple.
DATA PROTECTION ACT
Our SimpleWeb service allows the Client to update their website content on a regular, usually monthly, basis. We can accept content for inclusion either by the Client directly emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out the form provided at www.itsimple.co.uk/update_form.htm. We can only accept update material in these two methods and all amendment text must be in plain text format. We will accept up to a total of 1 x A4 printed page (Times New Roman 12 point) for the website amendment on a monthly basis. We will also, entirely at our discretion, allow Clients to make minor graphical and / or layout changes to the site on a monthly basis. We will also add and / or delete up to 1 page per month including necessary changes to menu systems. Such additional changes are entirely at our discretion however.
Wherever possible, we will attend to site update requests within 48 hours however this may not always be possible and the Client accepts that any update request will be handled as soon as we possibly can.
Terms for all products including .com .net and .org names and any hosting packages
In the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or special restrictive orders being placed upon the Client, this Agreement between ITSimple and the Client shall become immediately void.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless ITSimple, www.itsimple.co.uk, any of our affiliated sister websites, CORE, ICANN, NOMINET and any applicable domain name registry and the directors, officers, employees and agents of each of them, for any loss, damages or costs, including reasonable solicitors/attorneys fees, resulting from any third party claim, action, or demand related to your domain name or the use thereof.
We will delete, without notice, any sites that feature:-
any nudity, erotic images, sexually oriented material, or sexual themes (insofar as adult material is concerned);
any spam whatsoever;
any (apparently) illegal or morally questionable activity;
any domain which is brought to our attention that could breach ANY trademark regulation world-wide;
If in doubt, it's probably not what we want on our servers and you would face deletion without refund.
The decision as to what is decent, legal and honest is ours. There is no appeal process. We will monitor your content - if in doubt ask us.
We have a strict anti-spam policy. We reserve the right to withdraw service in the event of complaint.
