This Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) is a legally binding contract between CarrierSites (the “Company”) and you (the “Client”) that shall govern the purchase and use, in any manner, of services provided by the Company to the Client (collectively, the “Services”). By purchasing or using the Services in any manner, the Client represents that they have read, understand, and agrees to all terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, and that he is at least eighteen (18) years old and has the legal ability to engage in a contract in the State of Illinois. If the Client does not accept the Agreement and all terms and conditions set forth within, he should not purchase or use, in any manner, Services from the Company or, if he has already purchased Services, he should contact the Company immediately to terminate the Agreement. It is further understood that the Agreement is subject to change from time-to-time, in whole or in part, without notice.
The Agreement becomes effective immediately upon submission of an order by the Client for a period of time as specified on the original order form (the “Billing Term”). Following the expiration of any Billing Term, the Agreement shall automatically renew for an equivalent period of time unless terminated by either party as outlined below.
As CarrierSites is located within the United States of America, we are required to follow any and all US laws. This provision applies to all Services provided and maintained by CarrierSites, whether located within the US or other countries.
The Company will automatically bill the credit card on file for the Client one day before the new Billing Term. All fees are billed in United States Dollars (“USD”) and are subject to change at any time with thirty (30) days prior notice to the Client. It is the responsibility of the Client to ensure that all billing information on file with the Company is accurate, and that any credit card or other automated payment method on file has sufficient funds for processing. Any account not paid in full by the end of the first day of the Billing Term will be subject to an “Account Suspension”. Following five (5) days of non-payment, the Company reserves the right to Suspend Services. Once the account is suspended the Client must re-subscribe anew to have website and service restored. And to subsequently terminate Services after thirty (30) days following suspension of Services. The Company is not responsible for any damages or losses as a result of suspension or termination for non-payment by the Client.
We offer two billing cycle options:
You can switch between cycles by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and request a cycle change. Once you’ve switched to Annual billing and have submitted payment for Annual billing, you may not switch back to Monthly billing until the next annual billing cycle.
Refunds are not offered for accounts that are suspended or terminated for violating the Agreement. Refunds are only available for new Clients. If the Client previously had Services with the Company, whether or not a refund was received, the Client would not be eligible for a refund. The Company reserves the right to refuse a refund at any time for any or no reason. Refunds will be issued only to the payment method that the original payment was sent from, and may take up to 2-3 weeks for processing. We do not issue refunds via check, alternate credit cards, or other payment methods. In any event, no refunds are offered after the first thirty (30) days of Service.
All disputes and overcharges must be reported directly to the Company, in writing, within thirty (30) days. Any Client that initiates a chargeback, reversal, retrieval request, or other dispute with their credit card issuing bank and/or PayPal (“Dispute”) will be immediately suspended or terminated pending investigation.
The Client may cancel service at any time but must provide no less than forty-eight hours (48) hours prior to the next scheduled renewal date by contacting us. If cancellation notice is not received within the required time frame, the Client will be billed for the next Billing Term and responsible for payment as set forth above. The 48 hours is strictly enforced.
The Company reserves the right to refuse service to any person at Company’s discretion. The Company further reserves the right to deny service to any script, program, software, or other service at Company’s discretion. Such refusal can occur at any time, for any or no reason, and without explanation.
The Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Agreement and all associated Services at any time without notice and for any or no reason including, but not limited to, breach of any provision of the Agreement. The Company is not responsible for any damages or loss of data resulting from such suspension or termination. Suspension for Non Payment: Once service is suspended access to all files and email are revoked until payment is made.
Each Client is required to utilize as little server resources as possible, so as to allow for reasonable performance by all CarrierSites Clients. Because server CPU and memory are shared resources, excessive consumption of these resources can interfere with or completely prevent normal service performance for other users. The Company reserves the right to suspend or terminate Services on any account that, at our sole discretion, is abusing server resources. Such suspension or termination can occur at any time without prior warning, and for any or no reason.
CarrierSites reserves the right to add, modify, or remove any or all features from any service The Company provides, at any time, with or without notification. This includes, but is not limited to, disk space limits, bandwidth limits, domain limits, pricing, and 3rd party applications. These changes can be made for any or no reason. The Company does not guarantee the availability of any feature, whether written or implied.

We do not provide support for any 3rd party software including, but not limited to, software offered by but not developed by the Company. We reserve the right to refuse assistance for any issue that, at our sole discretion, is: (a) outside the scope of standard support; or (b) caused by Client error.
Any and all abusive actions directed towards our staff will not be tolerated. If you use foul language, threaten us, or do anything else that we may find offensive, you will be subject to, at the Company’s sole discretion, suspension or termination of Services without refund, with or without notice.

CarrierSites recommends the use of a third-party email delivery service for emailing large lists of recipients. Using your domain to send repetitive, bulk or unsolicited emails can result in temporary suspension of your outbound email or website. We comply with standards set forth by spam monitoring services and require that our clients do the same. Doing otherwise can also result in your domain being blacklisted by spam monitoring sites. For additional information on third-party email service providers, please contact us here.
CarrierSites will make every effort to ensure domain names are registered, transferred, or renewed on time. If a domain name registration, renewal, or transfer is not processed when due, it is the Client’s responsibility to contact the Company within fifteen (15) days of the incident for us to investigate. Redemption fees may be charged to the Client for domains that remain expired for more than 30 days, when no contact is made to the Company in the required timeframe. CarrierSites liability is limited to the amount paid for the domain name.
