Payment and Billing
You agree to pay the full price for all Products you purchase from the Website. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees.
Netspur will automatically bill your payment method on file on the first day of each Billing Term, as defined below. All fees are billed in United States Dollars (“USD”) and are subject to change with thirty (30) days prior notice to you.
Your “Billing Term” is the period of time you have chosen to receive bills for the Services. For example, your Billing Term may be monthly, quarterly, or annually.
Netspur is only able to automatically collect payment from customers with credit cards stored on file (as opposed to credit cards used one for one time transactions) or active PayPal subscriptions. All other payment methods (one time credit card payments, check, money order, PayPal one time payments, etc.) must be initiated manually by you. It is your obligation to ensure that reoccurring fees are paid on their due date.
As a customer of Netspur, it is your responsibility to ensure that all billing information on file with Netspur is accurate, and that any credit card or other automated payment method on file has sufficient funds for processing. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your payment method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, insufficient funds and over the credit limit fees. Netspur screens all orders for fraud and other unethical practices. Services will not be activated until this fraud screen is completed. In certain cases, if your account is flagged for fraud, third party services, such as domain name registrations, will not be processed. Netspur has no liability for the failure to provide Services, including third party services, if your account fails its fraud screen.
Any account not paid in full by the end of the first day of the Billing Term will be given a seven (7) day grace period. If payment is not made within the seven (7) day grace period, Netspur reserves the right to suspend your Service(s) with Netspur and to charge a $10 “late penalty.” Fourteen (14) days following suspension of Services for non-payment, Netspur reserves the right to terminate Service(s) for non-payment.
Netspur is not responsible for any damages or losses as a result of suspension or termination for non-payment of your account. In addition, Netspur reserves the right to refuse to re-activate your Services until any and all outstanding invoice(s) have been paid in full.
Refund Policy and Billing Disputes
Netspur offers a thirty (30) day money back guarantee on web hosting plans. After the thirty (30) day money back guarantee, eligible plans are eligible for an account credit on a prorated basis. Such credits will have any previous extended term discounts withheld from the total credit amount and will be calculated based on the number of months remaining in your billing cycle.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund under the 30 day money back guarantee. For example, if you had or still have an account with Netspur before, canceled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund or if you have opened a second account with Netspur. In addition, refunds are not offered for accounts that are suspended or terminated for violating this Agreement.
Refunds will be issued only to the payment method that the original payment was sent from, and may take up to one (1) week to process.
No refunds are offered on WordPress Maintenance and Support plans, SEO Services, Form Creation and Management, Website Design fees, domain registrations, domain transfers, domain renewals, SSL certificates, dedicated IP addresses, advanced support fees, processing fees, or software licenses.
If you believe there is an error in Netspur’s billing, you must contact Netspur about it, in writing, within thirty (30) days of the date you are billed or charged. Netspur’s obligation to consider your claim is contingent on your providing it with sufficient facts for Netspur to investigate your claims. You waive your right to dispute any charges or fees if you fail to notify Netspur in writing or meet the deadline set out above. If Netspur finds that your claim is valid, Netspur agrees to credit your account on your next billing date. Third party fees are not subject to this dispute provision and are final.
Chargebacks, Reversals, and Retrievals
If Netspur receives a chargeback or payment dispute from a credit card company, bank, or Paypal, your Services may be suspended without notice. A $50 chargeback fee (issued to recoup mandatory fees passed on to Netspur by the credit card company), plus any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s), must be paid in full before service is restored. Instead of issuing a chargeback, please contact Netspur to address any billing issues.
If Netspur appeals a chargeback or other payment dispute and wins the dispute or appeal, the funds will likely be returned to Netspur by the credit card company or bank. Any double payment resulting from this process will be applied to Customer’s account in the form of a service credit.
Cancellation of Services
Either party may terminate this Agreement by providing notice to the other as provided herein.
You may cancel Service(s) with Netspur by submitting a cancellation request in writing by logging into Netspur’s customer portal located at https://my.netspur.com/. In the event that you are unable to login to your billing account with Netspur, please contact us via email and we will assist you. However, Netspur prefers that cancellations are submitted through the customer portal to reduce the likelihood of error and ensure the security of your account. Cancellations are not final until confirmed by a representative of Netspur in writing by email.
Cancellations must be requested via the form indicated above 48 hours or more prior to the Service’s renewal date. If a cancellation notice is not received within the required time frame, you will be billed for the next Billing Term and are responsible for payment as set forth above.
If you pay Netspur via PayPal, it is your responsibility to cancel any subscription for recurring PayPal payments. Netspur (which has no control over PayPal subscription payments) is not responsible for payments made from your PayPal account after cancellation and is under no obligation to refund such payments made after cancellation.
When upgrading or downgrading package(s), you are responsible for canceling any previous package(s). To cancel previous package(s), you must submit a written cancellation request as described above.
Netspur may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing notice to Customers via email. Should Netspur terminate this Agreement for any reason other than a material breach, or violation of Netspur’s Acceptable Use Policy, any prepaid fees shall be refunded.
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance depending on the hosting package you purchase.
Should your account pass the allocated amount, Netspur reserves the right to: a) suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, b) suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, c) suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, and/or d) charge you an additional fee for the overages.
