We will provide refunds on a case-by-case basis based on our SLA. In case of return of unused funds, the refund amount is equal to the amount of unused funds in the account, minus payment systems’ transfer commission costs.

 

Any violation of our Terms & Conditions Agreement shall result in no refund.

6. Credit Card Charge Backs:

A credit card chargeback fee equivalent to payment systems transfer commission costs. The original charge amount and penalty fee must be paid immediately in order to guarantee that services will remain online and available. If a customer or anyone paying on the customer’s behalf has used a credit card to pay for services ending in 2 or more chargebacks, will result in credit card payment privileges being revoked (full payment will be due via money order or wire transfer). This fee will be waived and credit card payment privileges reinstated if the chargeback resulted in error, provided that supporting documentation is submitted. If a credit card was used to pay for more than one customer account resulting in multiple chargebacks, each account will be assessed the chargeback fee. Chargebacks received are reversed from the customer’s account, leaving the balance due and payable immediately. Outstanding balances are subject to the unpaid fees and delinquent accounts policy and may result in service suspension or account termination (if the account is terminated all information within the account will be deleted).

MyHBD is not responsible for processing or refund of the payment which was received for non-existent or disabled service.

8. Opening a Dispute with Payment System:

Please note that MyHBD reserves right to immediately terminate all related to dispute accounts and services without refund if we consider your opened dispute with the payment system about the refund of the money paid for our services to be an abuse of the payment system (if the account is terminated all information within the account will be deleted).

Customer shall be solely responsible for the selection, use, and suitability of any product and service and MyHBD shall have no liability associated with the foregoing. Customers are responsible for ensuring the security of servers.

14.Promotional Use:

MyHBD may refer to you, your company, or your logos for promotional purposes. Your company name, logos and the services that were provided to the customer by MyHBD may be used in promotional materials, advertising, marketing releases, newsletter, public disclosures and on our website. This reference will be strictly limited to disclosure that we have provided services to the company and will not contain any confidential, sensitive or proprietary information in such a reference. The reference will also not provide any personally identifiable information about the individual or technical information regarding the server configuration and design used by the customer at MyHBD. However, we may disclose any information requested by law enforcement or when compelled by court order, applicable laws or regulations.

15.Rules for using our server:

In order for everything to work like a perfectly coordinated mechanism, order is needed. And in order to have order, we need rules. And we have them – therefore, we strongly ask you to familiarize yourself with them in order to avoid further misunderstandings and questions.

 

Any of the following actions on any of the servers and our tariffs are strictly prohibited and will most likely lead to the immediate blocking of the client (including his accounts registered under other names):

 

– intentional email spam, outgoing and incoming

– botnets, viruses, exploits, as well as redirects to sites that contain them

– child pornography, incest, porn involving animals, as well as sites with models looking younger than 18 years

– theft and fraud, as well as redirects to resources with such

– constant CPU load over 80%

– carding and everything related to it

– malicious actions against government (and other) organizations, as well as executive authorities

– activities that can lead to IP blacklisting (SpamHaus, StopForumSpam, SpamCop, Blocklist, antivirus databases and any other blacklists)

– organization of DDoS attacks from leased servers, as well as conducting “test” DDoS and other attacks on your server

– online pharmacies with illegal pharmaceuticals

– cryptocurrency mining

– replica sites/stores selling copies of watches, bags, clothes, etc.

– port and vulnerability scanning

– use of unlicensed Microsoft software

– adding and using IP addresses that do not belong to you.

 

And also – any other activities that may cause material or reputational damage to us and our customers. Of course, any actions that violate the laws of the country in which the corresponding server /VPS is located are prohibited. In case of such violations, we immediately block the server, issue a fine and appeal to law enforcement agencies. In case of an official request from law enforcement authorities, all the necessary information about the violator will be transmitted immediately.

 

If your VPS creates problems for other users (powerful DDoS attacks, excessive loads on the channel and disk subsystem, etc.), then we reserve the right to limit the corresponding load or refuse to provide services at any time and offer to move to a dedicated server in order to ensure stable and uninterrupted operation of other clients.

 

We are ready to refuse one client for the sake of peace and stability of the others.

 

Also, when using a VPS, it is prohibited to place trafogenerating scripts, websites and other resources (audio/video streaming, file storage, etc.)

 

Note: we do not limit the channel when installing VPS to specific values, by default your VPS can use the maximum channel width of the virtualization node, for example – 1 Gbit/s. We only reserve the right to limit the channel ONLY in case of constant abuse, or when such excess creates problems for other customers.

 

Regional unavailability of IP addresses due to blocking by providers, local governments or government agencies is not a violation of the agreement between the client and MyHBD.

 

Example: The IP address of the ordered virtual machine is not available to a client from Kazakhstan or Turkmenistan, because the authorities of these countries have required local providers to block access to a certain array of IP addresses. The provider cannot influence this situation: the IP address is routed and available globally on RIS/RIR servers and traffic exchange points, and therefore technically (from MyHBD) is announced to the whole world. In this situation, the client will have to order a new IP address or a new VPS – and perhaps the new address will be available (not blocked).

 

Important! MyHBD is not a “blocking bypass office”. We work in accordance with the laws of the countries in which we operate. MyHBD is a hosting provider, so we also do not provide technical capabilities of the subscriber to access the Network. Therefore, if the client cannot use the service due to blockages or their own problems with Internet access, this is not our area of responsibility and, accordingly, there can be no question of any refund for services.

16.General:

Terms & Conditions are subject to change without any prior notification. Content that does not meet these standards may be removed without prior notice to the Client.

 

These Terms & Conditions are a legally binding contract between the Client and MyHBD.
