DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Description. For each package of web hosting and related services that Sitemio makes available to its customers, Sitemio has prepared and published a specification (each a "Service Description"). The Service Descriptions are available on https://www.sitemio.com (the "Site").
Changes to Services. Sitemio may modify its services and the corresponding Service Descriptions from time to time. Please refer to the Site for the most current Service Descriptions. Sitemio may also send any email notice of the change to its affected customers.
Any Service identified as a "Hosting Services" in its Service Description is a Hosting Service.
Sitemio shall: (i) maintain and operate the hardware used to host your website(s) (including monitoring the servers used on 24/7 basis); and (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain reasonable temperature and humidity levels, fire suppression controls, power conditioning equipment and uninterruptible power supplies for the proper ongoing operation of Sitemio's hosting hardware.
When Sitemio hosts a website on your behalf, Sitemio will route one or more domain names to that website. The exact number of domain names that Sitemio will route on your behalf will depend on the Hosting Service to which you subscribe. Check the applicable Service Description for more information.
You acknowledge that unless you subscribe to a Hosting Service that expressly includes the independent backup of Your Content (as defined below) as a service, Sitemio's backup activities are primarily for Sitemio's own disaster recovery purposes, and that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE STORAGE, BACKUP AND ARCHIVING OF YOUR CONTENT. Also note, Hosting Services include access to one or more tools via your Control Panel that allow you to backup Your Content. Please use these tools and backup Your Content frequently. Sitemio Automated Website Backup is an optional service available for an additional fee or which may be included for no charge in some Hosting Services that will automatically backup Your Content on an ongoing basis for your convenience. Please note that this service is provided as-is and without warranty in respect to performance. If you are using this service it is still your responsibility to review your backups from time to time to ensure all of your data is backed up correctly and to notify us of any concerns you have.
When reasonably possible, any maintenance of the hardware used to host your website(s) will be conducted during one of the following "Maintenance Windows": (i) between 12:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. (local time in Toronto, Ontario); (ii) between 12:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. (local time in London, England); or (iii) between 12:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. (local time in Sydney, Australia). When choosing a Maintenance Window to use, Sitemio takes into account where the customers who may be affected by the maintenance activities are located (based on the addresses given to Sitemio by the customers) and what would be the early hours of the morning for most of them.
A Hosting Service is "Available" if the: (a) the hardware being used to provide it is operating; and (b) the Internet connection provided as part of the Hosting Service is operational.
Sitemio will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Hosting Services will be Available other than for "Scheduled Maintenance" at least 99.9% of the time, measured monthly. Any maintenance or other work performed on Sitemio's technology infrastructure that takes place during the Maintenance Window or with at least 48 hours' prior notice posted to the Site is "Scheduled Maintenance".
You acknowledge that it is important to coordinate your maintenance activities with those of Sitemio, and you will not conduct any maintenance activities on Your Content during any Maintenance Window without first obtaining written confirmation that Sitemio will not be performing any maintenance activities during that Maintenance Window.
Domain Names Registration Services.
Assistance with Registering Only. Sitemio may assist you to register one or more top-level or second-level domain names (the "Domain Name Registration Service"). For each such domain name registered Sitemio's involvement ends with the registration. You will be the registrant, administrative contact and technical contact, and you agree to be bound by all applicable terms and conditions published by the applicable registrar (http://www.opensrs.com/docs/contracts/exhibita.htm; http://promopeople.com/terms-of-service.html). Please note: you are also bound by ICANN's rights and responsibilities: http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities
Maintenance of Domain Names.You are responsible for the ongoing maintenance, control and use of any domain name registered in your name and for any fees or taxes associated with its maintenance. To maintain your domain name registration you will need to interact directly with the applicable registrar. FOR GREATER CLARITY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR: (i) RENEWING THE REGISTRATION AND ENSURING THAT IT DOES NOT LAPSE; AND (ii) ADDRESSING ANY ISSUES RELATING TO YOUR DOMAIN NAME. SİTEMİO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DOING SO.
Please note that: (i) Sitemio is not able to guarantee that a proposed domain name is available for registration or that a registrar will register it; (ii) Sitemio will not assist with the registration on your behalf of a proposed domain name in any top-level or second-level domain unless expressly directed by you to do so; and (iii) Sitemio may but is not obligated to inform you of any proposed or new top-level or second-level domains.
Privacy Registration Service. Some registrars allow domain names to be registered without publishing the registrant's name and contact information others do not. If you wish to take advantage of any such privacy service for a domain name and you are using the Domain Name Registration Service to register the domain name, you are responsible for informing Sitemio in writing prior to the registration of the domain name that you wish to take advantage of the registrar's privacy service. You acknowledge that the privacy service is provided by the applicable registrar, not Sitemio.
As is. Assistance with registering domain names and securing related privacy services is provided "as is" and without any warranties, representations or conditions whatsoever.
Domain Redemption Fee: If your domain was registered with Sitemio and has expired, but you wish to recover the domain, Sitemio may be able to recover the domain if it is still within the redemption period. To recover a domain name that has expired but which is still within the redemption period, Sitemio must pay a redemption fee, which in turn will be passed on to you the customer. Please note that this domain redemption fee does not include the registration price of the domain that will still need to be paid to register the domain for the next year. If the domain name is not renewed or acquired during the redemption period, it will be made available again to the general public after the redemption period completes. Only domains that have been registered with Sitemio can be re-registered after expiration of the domain. If the domain that has expired was registered at another company, you will need to contact that registrar to recover the domain from the redemption period.

If you have received written permission from Sitemio to resell all or part of the Services that you are receiving pursuant to this Agreement, you are responsible for providing support to your clients. If Sitemio is contacted directly by any such client, Sitemio may suspend all or part of the Services that it is providing to you. If Sitemio does so, Sitemio will give you notice of the suspension and the reason for the suspension. Once you have satisfied Sitemio that you have taken reasonable steps to inform your clients that they are to contact you for support and to ensure that you are providing that support, Sitemio will lift the suspension.

If you are located in a jurisdiction where such sharing requires your permission, we will only do so with your consent. Please note that if you access our services through a tool that hides your location, such as through a virtual private network, you may not receive our request for permission because we were not able to identify you as being located in a jurisdiction where your permission is required.
Further, our partners are prohibited from using your contact information for any purpose beyond those set forth above without your consent. We will not provide our partners with your credit card information. Further information about certain partners we share personal information with is available here.
SHARING WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS AND VENDORS
Occasionally, we enter into contracts with carefully selected third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, providing you with customer service, fraud detection and deterrence or access to advertising assets and providing us with information technology and storage services) or to assist us in our own marketing and advertising activities (including providing us with analytic information and search engine optimization services). Our contracts with such third parties prohibit them from using any of your personal information for any purpose beyond the purpose for which it was shared.
If you purchase a product or service from a third party through one of our brands, we will pass your personal information to such third party in order for them to fulfill your order.
We also share non-personal information with certain third parties, including the media, industry observers, marketing and advertising partners, vendors, customers, potential customers or partners. For example, we disclose mobile search trends, email open rates by industry, campaign best practices or the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, our websites or evaluated or purchased our products and services.
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets, or other similar sale transaction, your information will be transferred as part of that transaction. We will notify you by email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any such transfer and any choices you may have regarding your information.
Lastly, if legally required to do so, or if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary, we may disclose your personal information to courts of law, law enforcement authorities and other relevant third parties, such as internet service providers, to conduct an investigation, respond to a third party or law enforcement subpoena or court order, bring legal action, prevent harm to others or pursue other relief when you or a third party are or may be:
This disclosure can include transferring your information to the U.S. and other countries outside the European Economic Area. To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, it is our policy to notify you in the event that we are required to provide your personal information to third parties in connection with a subpoena.
The transmission of information via the internet, email or text message is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted through the Services or over email; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorized use, access or modification.
When we collect financial account information, such as credit card numbers, we protect its transmission through the use of encryption such as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.
