b) Changes to Services.

Lingsites may modify its services and the corresponding Service Descriptions from time to time. Please refer to the Site for the most current Service Descriptions. Lingsites may also send an email notice of the change to its affected customers.

6.2. Hosting Services.

a) Any Service identified as “Hosting” in its Service Description is a Hosting Service.

b) Hosting Environment.

c) Lingsites shall:

(i) maintain and operate the hardware used to host your website(s) (including monitoring the servers used on 24/7 basis); and

g) Routing.

When Lingsites hosts a website on your behalf, Lingsites will route one or more domain names to that website. The exact number of domain names that Lingsites will route on your behalf will depend on the Hosting Service to which you subscribe. Check the applicable Service Description for more information.

h) Backup.

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, Lingsites’ backup activities are primarily for Lingsites’ 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 back up Your Content. Please use these tools and backup Your Content frequently. Lingsites 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.

i) Availability. 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.

j) Cooperation. You acknowledge that it is important to coordinate your maintenance activities with those of Lingsites, and you will not conduct any maintenance activities on Your Content during any Maintenance Window without first obtaining written confirmation that Lingsites will not be performing any maintenance activities during that Maintenance Window.

k) Free Domain Name. If the cost of registering or renewing a single domain name for one year is included in the annual Fees that you are being charged for a Hosting Service (see the applicable Service Description to find out if it is included and the eligible types of domain names) and the domain name that you wish to register or renew for use with the website being hosted is both an eligible type of domain name and available, Lingsites will register or renew (as applicable) the domain name for you. If Lingsites does so and you continue to subscribe to such Hosting Services for a period of at least 12 months, Lingsites will not charge you its then-current fee for registering or renewing a domain name (as applicable). However, if the hosting services are terminated less than 12 months after registering or renewing the domain name or you attempt to transfer the domain name during that 12-month period, Lingsites will charge you and you are required to pay Lingsites then current fee for registering or renewing a domain name (as applicable).

6.3. Domain Names Registration Services.

a) Assistance with Registering Only.

Lingsites 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 Lingsites’ 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; https://www.internetx.com/en/legal/terms-and-conditions/; https://www.eurodns.com/registries-policies). Please note: you are also bound by ICANN’s rights and responsibilities: http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities

b) 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. Lingsites is not responsible for doing so.

c) Please note that:

(i) Lingsites is not able to guarantee that a proposed domain name is available for registration or that a registrar will register it.

(ii) Lingsites 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) Lingsites may but is not obligated to inform you of any proposed or new top-level or second-level domains.

d) 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 Lingsites 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 Lingsites.

e) As is.

Assistance with registering domain names and securing related privacy services is provided “as is” and without any warranties, representations, or conditions whatsoever.

f) Domain Redemption Fee

If your domain was registered with Lingsites and has expired, but you wish to recover the domain, Lingsites 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, Lingsites 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 Lingsites 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.

6.4. Additional Services.

Any additional services related to the Hosting Services or Domain Name Registration Services that are requested by you and that Lingsites in its sole discretion provides (“Additional Services”) are deemed to be Services provided pursuant to these T&C, and they will be provided at Lingsites’ then-current rates.

6.5. Hosting and Website Subscription Plans have their own Terms and Conditions document, available at link the TC.

7. Technical support

7.1. You must notify our support team promptly of any fault or suspected fault with your services. If you can, please contact us by email. Posting on social media does not constitute notice.

7.2. Unless agreed otherwise, we will provide you with technical support during the hours set out on our website. Our support covers the services which we have sold to you. We do not provide technical support in respect of any software which you install on our services.

7.3. You must promptly provide all reasonable assistance to our staff when they are attempting to diagnose or fix problems.

8. Data Protection

Interpretation

8.1. References in this clause 8 to a Regulation are to regulation 2016/679/EC, also known as the “GDPR”, for as long as the GDPR applies to our Processing of Personal Data. If the GDPR ceases to apply to our Processing of Personal data, references to a Regulation are to the Applied GDPR. References to the “Applied GDPR” are to the GDPR as amended by the UK’s Data Protection Act 2018.

8.2. References to an Article are to an Article of the Regulation and capitalised terms in this clause 8 have the meaning defined by the Regulation unless otherwise defined in the Agreement.

8.3. “Data Protection Laws and Regulations” means all applicable data protection and privacy legislation including the Regulation and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (in each case, as amended, updated or re-enacted from time to time). In the event of any inconsistency between the Data Protection Laws and Regulations, the strictest provision shall prevail.

Applicability

8.4. If, in respect of any Personal Data set out in Schedule 1 or otherwise agreed between us, you are a Controller, and we Process the Personal Data as your Processor, this clause 8 and the provisions of Schedule 1 shall apply in respect of such Processing.

8.5. Schedule 1 sets out the subject-matter and duration of the Processing, the nature and purpose of the Processing, the type of Personal Data and categories of Data Subjects. You must notify us promptly if you become aware that the information in Schedule 1 is incomplete or inaccurate, and you must provide with that notification the necessary updated information.

Your obligations

8.6. You must, for the duration of the Processing, comply with your obligations under Data Protection Laws and Regulations. Without limiting the generality of this, you must, in particular:

a) have a lawful basis for the Processing, and ensure that you are entitled to provide the Personal Data to us for Processing, and you must notify us promptly if either of these ceases to be true;

b) notify your Data Subjects of the Processing, to the standard required by Data Protection Laws and Regulations;

c) ensure that all Personal Data you provide to us shall be accurate and up to date, and you must make promptly any amendments necessary to ensure that the Personal Data remain accurate and up to date.

We will be liable for the acts and omissions of our Sub-processors, and we will ensure that the Sub-processor contract (as it relates to the Processing of Personal Data) is on terms which are substantially the same as, and in any case no less onerous than, the terms set out in this clause 10. You hereby authorise us to appoint as Sub-processors those companies listed as sub-processors in Schedule 1.

e) treat the Personal Data as your confidential Information;

f) take all measures required pursuant to Article 32;

g) taking into account the nature of the Processing, assist you by appropriate technical and organisational measures, insofar as this is reasonably possible, for the fulfilment of your obligation to respond to requests for exercising the Data Subject’s rights laid down in Chapter III of the Regulation;

h) provide reasonable assistance to you, at your cost, on your written request, in ensuring compliance with your obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36, taking into account the nature of Processing and the information available to us;

i) at your choice, delete or return all the Personal Data to you after the end of the provision of the services relating to the Processing, and delete existing copies. If we make available to you tools which enable you to download your Personal Data, we will only be required to assist where those tools are unable to meet your reasonable needs. We are not required to delete Personal Data if we are required to continue store those Personal Data by:

i. if the GDPR applies to the Processing, any law of the European Union or the law of one of the Member States of the European Union; and
ii. if the Applied GDPR applies to the Processing, any law in the United Kingdom.

If such files are detected amongst Your Content, Lingsites may ask you to demonstrate that they are:

a) owned or properly licensed by you; and

13.5. You can disable auto-renewal at any time before your service period expires.

13.6. If you want your service plan to renew automatically, you must meet any conditions which we set out from time to time.

13.7. If you store a credit or debit card with us and have allocated that card to your service plan, we will attempt to charge that card to renew your service plan automatically.
