This Agreement is effective as of the date services are procured (the “Effective Date”). If you are accepting on behalf of Client, you represent and warrant that: (i) you have full legal authority to bind your employer, or the applicable entity, to these terms and conditions; (ii) you have read and understand this Agreement; and (iii) you agree, on behalf of the party that you represent, to this Agreement. If you do not have the legal authority to bind Client, please do not enter into this Agreement. This Agreement governs Client’s access to and use of the Services and will be effective as of the Effective Date.

1. Services

1.1 Facilities and Data Transfer. All facilities used to store and process Client Data will adhere to reasonable, industry accepted security standards no less protective than the security standards at facilities where Reclaim Hosting stores and processes its own information of a similar type. Reclaim Hosting has implemented best practices and procedures to ensure the security and confidentiality of Client Data, protect against anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of Client Data, and protect against unauthorized access to or use of Client Data and will use no less diligence than that with which they protect their own confidential data.

For Shared Hosting Customers, customers paying via credit card, customers utilizing prepaid registration codes, or customers utilizing top-level domain or domain registrar services:  As part of providing these Services and fulfillment of contractual obligations, Reclaim Hosting may transfer, store and process Client Data in the United States or any other country in which Reclaim Hosting or its agents maintain facilities. By using the Services, Client consents to this transfer, processing and storage of limited Client Data for these explicit purposes.

1.2 Modifications.

  1. To the Services. Reclaim Hosting may make reasonable changes to the Services. If Reclaim Hosting makes a material change to the Services, Reclaim Hosting will inform Client by either sending an email to the Notification Email Address or alerting Client via the Admin Console in advance of these changes.

  2. To Terms of Service. Reclaim Hosting may make reasonable changes to the Terms of Service. If Reclaim Hosting makes a material change to the Terms of Service, Reclaim Hosting will inform Client by either sending an email to the Notification Email Address or alerting Client via the Admin Console in advance, as well as making note of the modification and date at or such other URL as Reclaim Hosting may provide. If the change has a material adverse impact on Client and Client does not agree to the change, Client must notify Reclaim Hosting within thirty days after receiving notice of the change. If Client notifies Reclaim Hosting as required, then Client will remain governed by the terms in effect immediately prior to the change until the end of the then-current Term. If the Services are renewed, they will be renewed under Reclaim Hosting’s then current Terms of Service.

1.3 Ads. Reclaim Hosting does not serve Ads in the Services or use Client Data for Ads purposes.

1.4 Aliases. Client is responsible for monitoring and responding to emails sent to the “abuse” and “postmaster” aliases for Client Domain Names but Reclaim Hosting may monitor emails sent to these aliases for Client Domain Names to allow Reclaim Hosting to identify Services abuse.

1.5 Data Retention. Reclaim Hosting will have no obligation to retain any Client Data beyond the retention period specified by Client within the Service Term (other than for any legal holds). If Client does not renew Service at the end of Term, Reclaim Hosting will have no obligation to retain archived Client Data.

1.6 End User Accounts. Client may request End User Accounts by:(i) requesting them during the establishment of the Institutional Contract; or (ii) after the Services Commencement Date, contacting Reclaim Hosting support personnel. Client can suspend or delete End User Accounts at any point in time through the Admin Console.

2. Client Obligations

2.1 Prohibited Uses.  Client may only use Services for lawful purposes. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, pornography, gambling, data mining and similar activities are strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on any Reclaim Hosting server. Using Reclaim Hosting servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.

Adult Content, Pornography, Banner Exchanges, etc.
You agree not to run a banner exchange, adult tgp (thumbnail gallery post), or host pornography on the Reclaim Hosting services.

Abusive Scripts/Processes
Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.

IRC Bots/Bouncers
All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.

BitTorrent software
While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed via Reclaim Hosting services.

Discrimination, Harassment and Hate Speech
Reclaim Hosting prohibits the use of our services to discriminate against people based on the personal attributes, including:

• Race
• Color
• Ethnicity
• National origin
• Religion
• Gender

• Sexual orientation
• Disability
• Any other characteristic protected under applicable law

*It is your responsibility to know your local laws and any other legal regulations on discrimination that might apply to you, by country or locality.

We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Harassment does not need to be recognized as unwanted or unwelcome by anyone other than the person being harassed. Additionally, Reclaim Hosting does not support hate speech. Hate speech occurs when violent, offensive, derogatory or demeaning language is directed at a person or group based on their one or more personal attributes.

Proxy Software
All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on Reclaim Hosting services.

Network Daemons
Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden.

Other Illegal Content or Use
Any services or information sharing that otherwise violate any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation are prohibited.

2.2 Compliance. Client will use the Services in accordance with the Acceptable Use Policy and terms of this Master Services Agreement. Reclaim Hosting may make new applications, features or functionality for the Services available from time to time, the use of which may be contingent upon Client’s agreement to additional terms. In addition, Reclaim Hosting will make other Non-Reclaim Hosting Applications (beyond the Services) available to Client and its End Users in accordance with the Application’s Terms and Conditions. If Client does not desire to enable any of the Non-Reclaim Hosting Applications, Client can enable or disable them at any time through the Admin Console.

2.3 Client Administration of the Services. Client may specify one or more Administrators through the Admin Console who will have the rights to access Admin Account(s) and to administer User Accounts. Client is responsible for: (a) maintaining the confidentiality of the password and Admin Account(s); (b) designating those individuals who are authorized to access the Admin Account(s); and (c) ensuring that all activities that occur in connection with the Admin Account(s) comply with the Agreement. Client agrees that Reclaim Hosting’s responsibilities do not extend to the internal management or administration of the Services for Client and that Reclaim Hosting is merely a Data Processor.  Our standard Data Processing Agreement terms can be found here:

Reclaim Hosting will, to the extent allowed by law and by the terms of the Third Party Request: (a) promptly notify Client of its receipt of a Third Party Request; (b) comply with Client’s reasonable requests regarding its efforts to oppose a Third Party Request; and (c) provide Client with the information or tools required for Client to respond to the Third Party Request.
