  4. Terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the over usages.

7. Spam Policy – zero tolerance

We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam.

In order to manage this each email account is restricted to a maximum send of 100 emails per hour.

iMarketing at its sole discretion reserves the right to require changes or disable as necessary any web site that does not comply with this policy. iMarketing also reserves the right to make any such modifications in an emergency at our sole discretion.

iMarketing reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee. This cost of the clean up fee is left entirely to the discretion of iMarketing.

Should any IP addresses get blacklisted as a result of the sending of any spam emails then iMarketing reserves the right to charge for the administration required to remove all blacklist references.

8. Email usage

If required iMarketing will set your account up with emails via the exim email client.

These accounts have limits of 100 emails per hour and 500mb disk storage.

In all instances if these limits are breached we will at our own discretion:

  1. Suspend the account
  2. Stop the emails.
  3. Send them but highlight they may be spam.
  4. Stop the emails and warn you not to do it again.
  5. Close your account with NO recourse.
  6. In any instance where a mass send is the cause of a blacklisting then iMarketing will charge for reinstatement of our white list status

In no instances will iMarketing be held responsible for any manual email campaigns that you may propagate that may cause email delivery failure or worse still cause your account to get closed.

9. Backups and data loss

Your use of our service is at your sole risk. IMarketing is not responsible for files and data residing on your account.

The hosting that iMarketing contracts for backs up each website weekly on a Sunday. However iMarketing will not be held responsible should that backup fail or should the data not be available, unless the premium support package is contracted.

We will, if you request, restore your site at its last backup point (the previous Sunday) on no more than 3 occasions in any 12 month period – on your instruction. Any restore that requires us to import your site from the offsite backup will cost 5,000 THB.

Offsite backups are kept for 1 month.

10. Viruses

Occasionally your site may become virused, impregnated with 3rd party code that is/may be deemed to be malicious or to be malware. Should this occur then your site may be suspended until such time as the offending code is removed. The cost of virus removal will be at the customer’s expense, unless the premium support package is contracted for.

If the premium package is contracted for then we will initially restore from the last clean backup, thereafter we will remove the infected code from your site and upgrade any and all security functionality within the site.

Any virus removal is restricted ONLY to WordPress or PHP sites. Joomla or Drupal site cleaning will need to be carried out by your own coders.

11. Site Maintenance/Upgrades & Hacking

The principal causes of a hacked site are:

  1. Poor passwords
  2. Unmaintained plugins
  3. Out of date source code
  4. Poorly coded plugins (for CMS systems)

The above instances enable a hacker to break into the site easily. The implications of any hack are extensive hacks may “cross fertilize” (cross server scripting/XSS) this means the implications of a hack may be server wide and may bring down all the sites on the server.

It is incumbent on the site owner to reduce the possibility of a “hack” this should be done in 2 principal ways, (1)Use difficult passwords (2)Ensure that all systems are upgraded and maintained using the latest versions of the software or plugins.

In view of the implications of XSS, iMarketing expect every owner to upgrade whenever possible (Premium customers get this done by iMarketing). In instances where a upgrade is due and this is not being applied then iMarketing will:

  1. Request the site owner to upgrade
  2. If the upgrade is not done or there is no response iMarketing will carry out the upgrade on the owners behalf and charge accordingly

In the case of point 2 iMarketing will not be held to be responsible for any upgraded sites that fail.

For those site owners who do not wish to manage their own upgrades iMarketing offer premium site support, this not only ensures that all sites are maintained, upgraded and supported but also offers instant response in the case of hacking (see service levels).

Site Restore

If your site, following an upgrade by you fails then iMarketing will on your instructions:

  1. Attempt to rectify the issue instantly or
  2. Restore your site to its last backup point (the previous Sunday) and
  3. Then await further instructions

The cost of doing this will be charged at iMarketing’s prevailing hourly rate.

12. DOS

Very occasionally your site may suffer a “denial of service attack” if this attack is sufficiently sophisticated it may affect the performance of the server, in these instances we reserve the right to load a under construction page or even to suspend the site for a period of time. If on reinstatement the attack continues we will assist you in sourcing a DOS supplier at your own cost.

13. Support

iMarketing provide hosting support between the hours of 02.00 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. (GMT). Support outside these hours may be contracted for separately.

This support includes:

  1. Website access issues attributable to the hosting account.
  2. All non-deliverability email issues directly related to your hosting account.

This support does NOT include

  1. The setup, management and deliverability issues of mobile devices (iphone, Blackberry etc)
  2. The management (following setup) of all email clients. (Outlook etc)
  3. The setup of databases and any other hosting requirement that may be part of a website that iMarketing is not involved in.
  4. The repair or rectification of any website impregnated with Malware.
  5. The updating of any online software or services (unless the premium support package is contracted for)

14. Charging

iMarketing contract with 3rd party host services. The charge is comprised of the cost of the server facilities and iMarketing support. The charges are calculated based on the predicted workload required to support your account. Should this support level alter (usually by the addition of sites, the storage of content, increased usage of server space, increased support requirement, the increase of email addresses or by the addition of complexity (databases etc) then iMarketing reserve the right to alter the charging structure.
