Terms of service, per 2009-02-18Agreement
This is an agreement between Nidelven IT Ltd. (NIT) and the
customer (TC) regarding cooperation between the two entities.
Each party shall not disclose confidential information to any third
party. Each receiving party shall treat confidential information with
the same degree of care as it treats information of its own which it
would not wish to be disclosed.
Backups are made on a daily/weekly basis and in periods stored
in a separate, long-time storage. Backups older than one week
can be available, but NIT does not make any promises that they are,
and restoration from backups are subject to consulting fees,
where it typically takes 1-2 hours to restore an account.
Nidelven IT might pack the customers' Zope database(s), to keep disk
usage down. If the customer does not wish to have the database
automatically packed, the customer must notify Nidelven IT.
It is required that the customer gives notice of cancellation at
least 3 months in advance of when the customer wants the service
For example, if the customer pays a 1 year advance on hosting,
and cancels immediately, the service(s) will run for another 3
months and the remaining 9 months will be refunded. Any bank
(wire) transfer fees or similar required to give the customer
a refund will be deducted from the refund.
Payments for domain services and SSL certificates will not be
refunded, as NIT also pays for these on a yearly basis. Server
solutions are often subject to at least a 12 month commitment
NIT must notify the customer at least 3 months in advance, if a
hosting service provided for the customer by NIT will be discontinued
due to re-organization in NITs services. Any bank (wire) transfer
fees to refund payments for discontinued services will be covered
Nidelven IT retains all rights to software developed when consulting,
and licenses it to the customer under the GPL license, version 2:
We believe this is a practical approach to software licensing, as the
customer gets freedom to use the software in many ways, while we
can re-use the software developed.
Any software developed by Nidelven IT as a part of services sold
to customers should be considered proprietary unless otherwise
Nidelven IT retains all rights to documentation created, and licenses
it to the customer under the Creative Commons By license:
Use of NITs services
If NIT finds that their services have been used to abuse others, by
spamming or otherwise harassing other netizens, NIT reserves the
right to cancel the account and not make any refunds.
