A. Ecomitize.com (hereafter “Ecomitize”) hereby agrees to deliver the services described in the
Service Order provided to customer (“Customer”) at the time of purchase, subject to the
following Terms of Service (hereafter the “TOS”). The use of Ecomitize’s services, network(s)
and/or system(s) (collectively and individually, the “Services”) constitutes Customer’s
unconditional acceptance, on behalf of itself, its employees, contractors, affiliates, agents,
invitees and end users, of the TOS and any policies, regulations and/or documents incorporated
herein by express reference. The TOS and Service Order shall be collectively referred to herein
as the “Agreement.”
B. Due to changing technologies, changing laws and the individual and collective needs of our Customers, Ecomitize reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the TOS at any time. Any modified TOS will be posted on the Ecomitize website at http://helix.ecomitize.com. Ecomitize will make reasonable efforts to provide Customer with advance notice of modifications, however it remains Customer’s sole responsibility to review the TOS on an ongoing basis in order to familiarize itself with any such modifications, and Customer’s continued use of the Services shall confirm Customer’s acceptance, on behalf of itself, its employees, contractors, affiliates, agents, invitees and end users, of the TOS as modified. If a Customer does not agree to a material modification to the TOS, the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be to cease all use of the Services and cancel Customer’s account as set forth in Section 2.D. below.
A. Term of Service. The initial term of the Agreement shall commence upon the date set forth on
the Service Order and continue for the full duration as described therein, subject to the
renewal, termination and cancellation provisions set forth herein. The initial term and any
renewal terms shall hereafter be referred to as the “Term.”
B. Renewal. The Agreement shall automatically renew for successive periods of time equal to that of the initial term, commencing immediately upon the expiration of the prior term, unless Ecomitize receives written notice of Customer’s intention not to renew no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration of then-current term. Notice of Customer’s intention not to renew must be sent from Customer via email to support@Ecomitize.com, and include verification of ownership (i.e., password/passphrase) of the hosting account and/or domain(s), as determined by Ecomitize. Non- secure information such as contact e-mail or billing address is not sufficient to verify ownership.
C. Termination. Ecomitize shall have the option to suspend performance of the Agreement, or terminate the Agreement, with or without prior notice to Customer, (i) immediately upon notification that Customer is engaged in any Prohibited Use as defined herein or upon the occurrence of any material, noncurable breach of the Agreement; (ii) in the event that Customer has breached any material term of the Agreement and fails to cure the same within ten (10) days following receipt of written notice thereof (five (5) days in the event of failure to pay monies due hereunder). Any and all amounts due and payable hereunder, including amounts accruing through the date of termination, shall survive said termination and shall become immediately due and payable.
The customer may terminate this Agreement if Ecomitize is in default of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and fails to correct such default within ten (10) days after written notice thereof. Customer may terminate this Agreement for convenience at any time subject to 10 calendar days’ advance notice to Ecomitize in writing and a reasonable opportunity to cure any alleged default(s).

Ecomitize will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Customer with an electronic copy of the most current invoice approximately (10) days prior to the monthly billing date, with payment due immediately upon delivery of a hard copy to Customer. Customers who have arranged for automatic payment by credit card or other means will have an automatic charge (i.e. debit) to their account executed as of the billing date set forth on the invoice for the full amount due and payable as reflected therein. Customer agrees to update and keep current all billing information, email and all other contact information necessary to ensure proper billing and continuity of services. Customer shall be responsible for all costs, charges and fees arising from erroneous account information and/or insufficient funds, which will include a $50 billing service fee. Payments received later than fourteen (14) days after the invoice date will incur a late fee at a rate of 1.5% per month in addition to all other remedies set forth herein or available at law, including but not limited to the suspension or termination of Service and/or a $50 reactivation fee.

It does not extend to services including (but not limited to) custom web design and programming, or configuring, fixing or installing scripts or third party software. Any additional services needed by the Customer, but not covered by Standard support, will be billed at the then-prevailing standard hourly rate (currently $80.00 USD/hour). The Customer will be informed of additional fees before the work is started and Ecomitize will seek written preapproval from the Customer or designee and provide an estimate of the number of hours it expects to charge before commencing any work to be billed at the aforementioned hourly rate. C. Upgrades. Customers requesting an upgrade/downgrade of Service (i.e. storage, backup, etc.) shall submit such request to Ecomitize in writing. Any such request will be approved or denied in the sole discretion of Ecomitize, and may be conditioned upon Customer’s written acceptance of associated billing changes and/or hourly service charges.

control passwords to Customer's web site(s), and Customer exclusively is responsible for all
activities that occur in connection with Customer's user name, password, registered domain
name(s); as well as any and all scripts or programs added to the account by the Customer or
authorized users. Customer agrees to immediately notify Ecomitize of any unauthorized uses of
the Service or any other breaches of security. Ecomitize will not be liable for any loss or
damages of any kind, under any legal theory, caused by Customer's failure to comply with the
foregoing security obligations or caused by any person to whom Customer grants access to the
In the event that Ecomitize detects that the security or integrity of Customer’s Website(s) has/have been compromised, Ecomitize may inform the Customer of software upgrades or other measures available to prevent, mitigate or remedy such failures (including but not limited to the removal and reinstallation of Customer Content), and reserves the right to disconnect Service until and unless such upgrades or measures are carried out by the Customer.
B. Security Violations. Customers are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of Ecomitize’s network and any and all components thereof. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability. Ecomitize will investigate any such occurrences of which it becomes aware, and may involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting Customers who are involved in such acts. These violations include, but are not limited to:
C. Access and Control Policy. When a new account or domain, as applicable, is registered with or transferred to Ecomitize or with one of its affiliates, the process requires and results in the creation of the following within the records of Ecomitize, in association with said new account or domain: i) Name of person registering; ii) email address; iii) user name; iv) password; and, v) associated payment information, etc.
D. License to Ecomitize. Ecomitize claims no ownership interest in the content of Customer's web site(s). By submitting content and data to Ecomitize, Customer grants to Ecomitize, its successors and assigns, the worldwide, royalty-free, and nonexclusive license to use, distribute, display, reproduce, perform and create derivative works from such material in any and all media, in order to perform the Services, including maintaining such content and data on Ecomitize's servers for the benefit of Customer and Customer’s end-users during the Term.
E. Transfer of Ownership. Ecomitize is not responsible to determine ownership of websites hosted by, accounts opened with, or domains registered with Ecomitize or its affiliates. By accessing Ecomitize’s system, registering, or using any of the services provided by Ecomitize, the Customer, or any other person so accessing, registering or using, hereby represents and warrants that the information provided in connection with said registration, including as well information concerning ownership of websites, domains, and accounts, is true, accurate, and complete in each material detail.
F. Disputes. In the event of a dispute between Customer and a third party respecting ownership of or rights in a site hosted by Ecomitize, in an associated Ecomitize account or respecting ownership or control of material, content or data contained on Customer’s site, then Ecomitize will, to the extent of its knowledge and ability, notify the disputing parties and demand that said persons promptly, conclusively, and finally resolve the dispute in a manner which makes clear who the owner(s) and/or interest holder(s) is/are and in a manner which relieves Ecomitize of all liability or obligations concerning the dispute. If the disputing persons fail to resolve the dispute within what Ecomitize, in its sole judgment, deems to be a reasonable time (which, in the case of an actual or potential claim of infringement may be immediately), then Ecomitize, at its option and without any obligation to do so, may (i) suspend or terminate the Service and/or Agreement, and maintain possession and control of all disputed rights, accounts and property pending resolution of the dispute to the satisfaction of Ecomitize; and/or (ii), file an action in a court of competent jurisdiction for the purpose of allowing the contending persons to resolve said dispute and to reach certainty regarding ownership of or rights in said site and/or account. The person or persons conclusively and finally determined by a court action to be the rightful owner(s) or interest holder(s) of said site and/or associated account and/or content, content or data shall be obligated to reimburse Ecomitize for all of its expenses relative to said action including without limit all its court costs and reasonable attorney fees. All amounts owed to Ecomitize under this section 5.E. shall be deemed due and payable thirty (30) days following judgment or settlement of the dispute.
A. Commitment. Ecomitize’s commitment to Customers' privacy is set forth in this Section 7.
Except as required by law or as otherwise provided herein, Ecomitize will collect the minimum
amount of information about its Customers that is reasonably necessary or useful to provide
Customers with satisfactory Service and support, and take commercially reasonable steps to
ensure the privacy of that information. This Policy indicates the type of processes that may
result in Customer information, and information of its employees, contractors, affiliates,
agents, invitees and end users of the Services ("Customer Information") being collected, how and
when Ecomitize might use that information, and who has access to this information. If you have a
question about how a certain type of information is handled, please e-mail us at

F. Anonymity. Ecomitize will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer in the event that it receives notice of an actual or potential legal claim from a third party based on the anonymity of Customer’s domain. Customer shall provide Ecomitize with written confirmation within five (5) business days following receipt of such notice that Customer has contacted the plaintiff or representative for the complainant and made Customer’s contact information available to them. Failure to provide timely written confirmation may be considered a breach of the Agreement and may result in suspension or termination of the Service, deactivation of any and all domain name(s) and/or forfeiture of the right to privacy on a domain.
G. Customer shall be solely responsible for compliance with all applicable state and federal laws respecting the privacy of protected information, including but not limited to HIPPA respecting private health and medical information and COPPA respecting personal information gathered from children. Customer shall indemnify Ecomitize from and against all penalties, charges, fees, damages, awards and costs, including but not limited to reasonable attorney fees, arising from Customer’s failure to adhere to such laws.
The following list provides a number of general prohibited uses of the Services that may subject
Customer's account to immediate suspension or termination in Ecomitize’s sole discretion. Any
attempt or agreement to engage in a prohibited use shall be treated the same in all respects as
the actual engagement in such use. Please note that the following list does not represent a
comprehensive or complete list of all prohibited uses.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Ecomitize has adopted a policy that
provides for termination of websites hosted by Ecomitize that are found to infringe on
copyrights of third parties. If a copyright holder believes that there has been a violation of
his or her copyright on a website that is hosted by Ecomitize or an Ecomitize subsidiary, and
the copyright holder wants Ecomitize to remove the website or disable the material in question,
the copyright holder must first provide all of the following information.
A. A signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Identification of the copyrighted work that is claimed is being infringed, or, in the case of claimed infringement of multiple copyrighted works, a representative list of such works.
B. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or is the subject of infringing activity and that should be removed or access to which should be disabled, with information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material.
C. Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the person giving the notification, such as an address and telephone, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which such person may be contacted.
D. A statement that the person giving the notification has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
E. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the person giving the notification is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Email DMCA reports to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A. Promotional Pricing. Ecomitize may periodically offer "free" or discounted services or
credits in connection with a promotional offer. Such promotional offers are honored only in
connection with the specific promotional package to which they apply. In the event a Customer
downgrades or otherwise changes his/her/its subscription to a subscription to which a
promotional offer does not apply, Customer will forfeit any unused free credits or service
offered under the promotional package and Ecomitize will charge Customer the prevailing fees for
any free credits redeemed or service used by Customer under the promotional package.
B. Backups. For its own operational efficiencies and purposes, Ecomitize from time to time backs up data on its servers, but is under no obligation or duty to Customer to do so. IT IS SOLELY CUSTOMER'S DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY TO BACKUP CUSTOMER'S FILES AND DATA stored on Ecomitize servers, AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE WILL ECOMITIZE BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND under any legal theory for loss of Customer files and/or data on any Ecomitize servers. Ecomitize will not attempt to back up accounts that exceed 50,000 files or 10 Gigs of space for any reason. Ecomitize provides many backup options: GitHub, on-site and off-site nightly backups, sync with development server(s), etc. Ecomitize performs nightly backups on all of our hosting solutions to ensure that critical files are never lost. You can customize your backup retention period, backup archive location, and the backup priority in relation to other Ecomitize services. The type of backup performed will also dictate the availability of restorable media; restore points, “snapshots,” or any other data backup or storage requirement that may be needed by the Customer at any given time. Ecomitize is not responsible for loss of data or absence of a backup between the time a backup starts and the next scheduled backup. We cannot ensure 100% recovery, but we will do our best to recover everything we can. If your account or data is lost due to hardware issues, we will restore your files at no additional charge.
C. Monitoring and Disclosures. All activities occurring on, in, and/or via the Services or any website hosted by Ecomitize may be monitored, recorded, and examined by any authorized person, including as well law enforcement. In general, Ecomitize does not monitor its Customers' websites or activities to determine whether they are in compliance with the TOS. However, when and if Ecomitize becomes aware of any violation of the TOS, Ecomitize may take any lawful action to stop or correct such violation, including, but not limited to, shutting down a website, denying access to the Services or to the Internet via Ecomitize, and/or removing non-complying information. Ecomitize reserves the right to take any such action even though such action may affect other Customers, patrons, customers, invitees, visitors, or guests of the Customer. Ecomitize may disclose any information in its possession, including, without limitation, information about Customers, internet transmissions and website activity in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation, governmental request, or other legal process to protect Ecomitize or others from harm, and/or to ensure the proper operation of the Services. Ecomitize has no obligation to notify any person, including the Customer about whom information is sought, that Ecomitize has provided the information.
D. Accurate Account Information. Customer must continually update and keep accurate and current contact information stored and saved on Ecomitize in order to avoid possible suspension or termination of the Service and/or Agreement.
E. Renewal of Domain(s). Customer acknowledges and confirms that the obligation to renew his/her/its Domain(s) is solely and exclusively the responsibility of the Customer, and is not the obligation (contractual or otherwise) of Ecomitize.
A. Customer is entitled to utilize the Services up to what is allotted in this Service Order or
by what is physically available. In addition, Ecomitize does not set an arbitrary limit or cap
on the amount of additional resources a single Customer can use. By not setting limits on key
resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our Customers as they grow their
websites, and Ecomitize will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional
resources to Customers who are using their website(s) consistent with the TOS, including moving
Customers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary.
However, Customer acknowledges that shared hosting service means that multiple Customer web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Ecomitize's service is designed to meet the typical needs of the small to medium business website Customer. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises or bandwidth and space consuming applications (such as file sharing, online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc.) better suited to Ecomitize’s dedicated server Service. In order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Customers, Ecomitize does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site adversely impacting the system until Ecomitize can evaluate said sites resource needs.
If a Customer exceeds its "Fair-Use" of shared system resources in the sole determination of Ecomitize, Ecomitize may, at its sole discretion, suspend, restrict or disconnect any or all of the Service. Ecomitize will make reasonable efforts to contact the Customer prior to any such action, or, if that is not possible, as soon as possible afterwards. Ecomitize will in good faith discuss the breach with the client and make reasonable efforts to recommend the best course of action, which may include:
Where a client is unwilling or unable to implement the recommendations made by Ecomitize within a reasonable period, Ecomitize may, at its sole discretion:
B. Parked Domain Names. Ecomitize does not set arbitrary limits on the number of parked domain names a Customer can associate with the Customer's web hosting account. There is $10/month fee for each additional parked domain name. This policy applies only to parked domains (i.e. domains pointing to the original domain associated with an account).
A. Warranty Disclaimer. YOU, THE CUSTOMER, ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS, AS
AVAILABLE" WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. ECOMITIZE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OR
CONDITION WITH RESPECT TO THE QUALITY, PERFORMANCE OR FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SERVICES AND

REPRESENTATIVES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, CUSTOMER SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVES, SHALL CREATE A
WARRANTY. ECOMITIZE DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF QUIET ENJOYMENT AND NON-INFRINGEMENT

PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY OF COMPUTER PROGRAMS AND CONTENT. ECOMITIZE DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT
USERS WILL BE ABLE TO USE THE SERVICES AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF THEIR CHOOSING. ECOMITIZE DOES
NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICE OR SOFTWARE, EVEN IF
SUCH Suspend or restrict access to the Service, including but not limited to processor time,
bandwidth, or processes, memory, or number of files, until the breach is cured;
Increase the applicable Fees in proportion to the overage; and/or
Terminate the Agreement with the Customer.
Parked Domain Names. Ecomitize does not set arbitrary limits on the number of parked THIRD PARTY
CLAIMS, REPRESENTS OR WARRANTS THAT SUCH SERVICE OR SOFTWARE IS COMPATIBLE WITH ANY SERVICE OR
ECOMITIZE IN PARTICULAR.
B. Limitations on Ecomitize's Liability. ECOMITIZE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR NONPERFORMANCE OR DELAY IN PERFORMANCE CAUSED BY ANY REASON, WHETHER WITHIN OR OUTSIDE OF ITS CONTROL. IN NO EVENT SHALL ECOMITIZE BE LIABLE UNDER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, CONVERSION, COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT, STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF USE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR INFORMATION OF ANY KIND OR LOSS OF BUSINESS GOODWILL OR OPPORTUNITY) WHETHER OR NOT ECOMITIZE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGES. ECOMITIZE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS, SERVICES OR TECHNOLOGY. ECOMITIZE'S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER'S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY USE OF THE SERVICES IS THE CANCELLATION OF CUSTOMER'S ACCOUNT. IN NO EVENT SHALL ECOMITIZE'S LIABILITY TO YOU, THE CUSTOMER, EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE DOLLAR ($1.00) OR ANY AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU, THE CUSTOMER, TO ECOMITIZE FOR THE PRIOR ONE MONTH PERIOD. NO ACTION, REGARDLESS OF FORM, ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS OR OUT OF THE SERVICES MAY BE BROUGHT BY YOU, THE CUSTOMER, MORE THAN ONE YEAR AFTER THE EVENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE CAUSE OF ACTION. IN THE EVENT THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION DOES NOT ALLOW A LIMITATION ON LIABILITY FOR ANY PERMITTED CLAIM OR ACTION ASSERTED BY CUSTOMER, THEN ECOMITIZE'S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
C. Indemnification of Ecomitize. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Ecomitize, its affiliates and its sponsors, partners, other co-branders and their respective directors, officers and employees of each harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities and costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) arising out of or relating to Customer’s breach of any of the Agreement or use by Customer or any third party of the Services, except to the extent the foregoing directly result from Ecomitize's own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Customer shall not agree to the settlement of any dispute requiring Ecomitize to take any action or incur any expense without its prior written approval. Ecomitize reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by Customer.
D. Ecomitize, LLC will indemnify Customer against any claim or action brought by a third party against the Customer relating to the infringement or alleged infringement of a third party’s intellectual property rights that are caused by the Services or Work Product or Ecomitize, LLC’s Licensed Programs. Ecomitize, LLC will not be required to indemnify Customer to the extent the claim of infringement is caused by: (a) the Customer’s modification of the Work Product, other than as contemplated by the Agreement, (b) Customer’s failure to use corrections or enhancements made available by Ecomitize, LLC, the use of which would have prevented the infringement claim or (c) Customer’s use of the Work Product in combination with any product or information not owned or developed by Ecomitize, LLC.
Except upon the sale or transfer of all, or substantially all of its assets to a financially responsible third party, this Agreement shall not be assigned by Customer except upon the advance written consent of Ecomitize. Any attempted assignment in violation of this provision shall be deemed void ab initio.
The TOS and Service Order (i.e. the Agreement) represent the entire agreement between the parties and replace and supersede any prior or contemporaneous agreements respecting the same or similar subject matter. Except as provided herein, no changes or amendments shall be made to the Agreement except in a writing signed by both parties.
Ecomitize shall be deemed an independent contractor for purposes hereunder, and nothing herein shall be construed to create an employment, agency, franchise, joint venture or partnership relationship between the Parties, nor shall either party be entitled to hold themselves out as such.
Neither Ecomitize nor Customer will be in violation of the Agreement if the failure to perform the obligation is due to an event beyond either party’s control such as significant failure of the power grid, sabotage, denial of service attack, significant failure of the Internet, natural disaster, war, riot, insurrection, epidemic, strikes or other organized labor action, terrorism, or other events of a magnitude or type for which precautions are not generally taken in the industry; provided however if the force majeure event continues beyond thirty (30) days, the performing party may terminate the Agreement.
Rights and obligations under this Agreement that, by their nature, should survive, including but not limited to all payment obligations, representations and warranties and disclaimers thereof and indemnifications, will remain in effect after termination, expiration or cancellation hereof.
Unless otherwise set forth herein, all notices shall be sent to Ecomitize and Customer in writing to the address indicated on the Service Order. Notices are deemed received as of the time delivered.
If any provision of the Agreement is held by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement shall, nevertheless, continue to be valid and in full force and effect, to the extent said remaining terms are then otherwise consistent with the original intent of the Agreement.
In the event that Customer brings legal action under this Agreement, this Agreement shall be
governed and interpreted by the laws of the Commonwealth of Nebraska and Lincoln County,
Nebraska shall be the appropriate venue and jurisdiction for resolution and in such case, both
parties hereby consent to such personal and exclusive jurisdiction.
