All provisions of this contract are subject to the TOS (Terms of Service) of RSH Web Services, and AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). The AUP may be changed from time to time at the discretion of the Company. Client understands that change to the AUP by the Company shall not be grounds for early contract termination or non-payment.

Disclosure to Law Enforcement: The AUP specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities. Therefore, Client agrees that the Company may disclose any and all subscriber information including assigned IP numbers, account history, account use, etc. to any law enforcement agent who makes a written request without further consent or notification to the Subscriber. In addition RSH Web Services shall have the right to terminate all service set forth in this Agreement.

Service Rates: Client acknowledges that the nature of the service furnished and the initial rates and charges have been communicated to client. Client is aware that the Company may prospectively change the specified rates and charges from time to time. The promotional offer is contingent upon Company achieving and maintaining its cost of service goals including but not limited to rates charged to company by its suppliers.

Payment: Establishment of this service is dependent upon receipt by the Company of payment of stated charges. Subsequent payments are due on the billing date for that month's service.

Payments and Fees: Credit cards that are declined for any reason are subject to a $2.00 declination fee. Service will be interrupted on accounts that reach 25 days past due. Service interrupted for nonpayment is subject to a $25.00 re-set up charge. Accounts not paid by due date are subject to a $5.00 late fee. Accounts that are not collectable by RSH Web Services may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the company a "Processing and Collection" Fee of not less than $50 nor more than $150. If you desire to cancel your account, please follow the proper procedure to do this as outlined in this TOS.

Client acknowledges That the service provided is of such a nature that service can be interrupted for many reasons other than the negligence of the company and that damages resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain. Therefore, client agrees that the company shall not be liable for any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive control of the company. Client further acknowledges that the company's liability for its own negligence may not in any event exceed an amount equivalent to charges payable by client for services during the period damages occurred. In no event shall the company be liable for any special or consequential damages, loss or injury.

New Domain Accounts: All new web hosting accounts involving new domains will be set up and entered into our DNS servers within 3 to 5 business days. Due to unforeseen complications, however, this process may sometimes require up to 7 business days.

Transfer of Domains: New web hosting accounts which involve the transfer of a domain from another provider to RSH Web Services, will require a minimum of seven (2) days to be set up and entered into our DNS servers. In some cases, such transfers may take up to sixty (30) days. Due to the unpredictable nature of the transfer process, no guarantees are made regarding the amount of time a specific transfer may take. If the customer cancels service during the transfer period for any reason, all charges are considered earned.
