  3. The Customer shall be issued with a password or passwords to access the services and shall take all reasonable steps to keep such passwords private and confidential and ensure that it does not become known to other persons. If the password becomes known to any other person, the Customer will immediately inform the provider and the password will immediately be changed. The provider or Webqo LTD may change the Customer’s password from time to time at their discretion without prior notice.
  4. The Customer shall not use the services: for transmission of computer viruses; for transmission of any material which is defamatory, offensive or abusive or of an obscene or menacing character, or which may cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety, or for the posting of any such material to bulletin boards or news groups; in a manner which constitutes a violation or infringement of the rights of any person, firm or Client (including, but not limited to any intellectual property rights); for the transmission of bulk mail in any form (whether it has occurred through intentional misuse, such as sending unsolicited email marketing, or if it has occurred unintentionally, such as through malware, computer viruses and any other exploits of a website or computer, whether part of our network or external to it). The definition of bulk mail shall be judged in terms of the negative effects (including, but not limited to, excessive use of resources or blacklisting) that may occur in such an incident. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate services and take any other steps we deem necessary at our sole discretion and without notice where such activity harms the reputation of our network and/or infringes on our ability to deliver services to other clients. It is the client’s responsibility to take all reasonable measures (including but not limited to, ensuring websites and software are kept up to date, passwords kept secure and any connected devices are protected by anti-virus or anti-malware to prevent such exploits taking place). In the event of such an exploit we do not accept responsibility for providing any assistance to restore affected devices, for example to re-configure an email client with a new password, and will only restore service where we believe the client has taken all reasonable measures to remove the exploit and ensure they comply with these terms.

In the event that communications by the Customer do not conform to these standards, or if the Customer makes profligate use of the Webqo LTD network to the detriment of Webqo LTD or any other Webqo LTD Customers, Webqo LTD reserves the right to restrict passage of the Customer’s communications until they give a suitable undertaking as to use.

Domain Name Terms

  1. The following terms and conditions apply specifically to the domain registration Service:
    1. You (the client) acknowledge and recognise that the domain name system and the practice of registering and administering domain names is continuously evolving and that We (Webqo LTD) may modify these terms as necessary, from time to time, to comply with any agreements by which We are or will be bound, and to adjust to changing business circumstances.

Your continued use of the registered domain name constitutes acceptance of these terms and amendments, including acceptance of the terms and conditions required of Us (Webqo LTD) by Our domain name services providers, the registrar; OpenSRS – Tucows Inc. and the registry Nominet UK, to which You are bound. By registering domain names, You are entering into a contract with Tucows Inc. and/or Nominet UK, a copy of which is at the end of this document, Master Domain Registration Agreement and the Terms and Conditions of Domain Name Registration. If at any time, You do not agree to such changes, You agree that Your sole remedy is to request that Your domain name registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain name registrar.

  3. Selection of a domain name
    1. You represent that, to the best of Your knowledge and belief, neither this registration of a domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly to be used infringes the legal rights of a third party and, further, that the domain name is not being registered for nor shall it at any time whatsoever be used for any unlawful purpose whatsoever.
    2. If You are registering a domain name during the finite period of time when owners of trademarks and service marks have priority to do so (“Sunrise Period”), You acknowledge and agree that registrations for domain names during the Sunrise Period will only be accepted on the conditions applicable to those new domain names and their Sunrise provisions which may include a minimum registration term.
    3. By registering or renewing a .uk top-level or second-level domain and agreeing to these terms & conditions, You agree that You have read and agree to the Nominet Terms & Conditions of Domain Name Registration.

    4. In the event of a charge back by a credit card Client or other payment provider authorised by Us, the domain name registration shall be transferred to Us as the paying entity for the registration.

For this reason, we ask that you provide all the required information at least one (1) week prior to the agreed completion date. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%. If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation, we need the text content for your site agreed in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.

In the event any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unimpaired and the Agreement shall not be void for this reason alone. Such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a mutually acceptable valid, legal and enforceable provision, which comes closest to the intention of the parties underlying the invalid clause.
