Website Hosting Terms of Service
Use of our web hosting service constitutes your acceptance of this agreement.
These Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) are an agreement between White Peak Growth Partners, LLC and its assigns and licensees (“White Peak” or “us” or “our”) and you (“User” or “you” or “your”). This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions of your use of website hosting made available by White Peak (the “Services”).
BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES AND YOU SHOULD REMOVE YOUR WEBSITE FROM OUR HOSTING SERVERS IMMEDIATELY AND CANCEL YOUR HOSTING ACCOUNT WITH US, IF ONE EXISTS.
Additional Policies and Agreements
Use of the Services is also governed by the Acceptable Use Policy, which is incorporated by reference. By using the Services, you also agree to the terms of the following policies.
By registering for or using the Services, you represent and warrant that:
- You are eighteen (18) years of age or older. The Services are intended solely for Users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older. Any registration, use of or access to the Services, by anyone under eighteen (18) is unauthorized and is a violation of this Agreement.
- If you use the Services on behalf of another party you agree that you are authorized to bind such other party to this Agreement and to act on such other party’s behalf with respect to any actions you take in connection with the Services.
It is your responsibility to provide accurate, current, and complete information on the registration forms, including an email address and phone number. If there is ever an abuse issue or we need to contact you, we will use the contact information we have on file. It is your responsibility to ensure that the contact information for your account, including any domain accounts, is accurate, correct, and complete at all times. If you need to verify or change your contact information, you should contact White Peak to update your contact information. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account.
You agree to be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place through your account. It is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your password and other information related to the security of your account.
The Service and any data you provide to White Peak is hosted in the United States (U.S.) unless otherwise provided. If you access the Service from outside of the U.S., you are voluntarily transferring information (potentially including personally-identifiable information) and content to the U.S., and you agree that our collection, use, storage, and sharing of your information and content is subject to the laws of the U.S., and not necessarily of the jurisdiction in which you are located.
Our Transfers Team will make every effort to help you move your website to us. Transfers are provided as a courtesy service. We do not make any guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to migrate some or all account data. In some cases, we may not be able to assist you in the transfer of data from an old host. The free transfer service is available for thirty (30) days from your sign-up date. Transfers outside of the thirty (30) day period will incur a charge; please contact a member of our Transfers department to receive a price quote. In no event shall White Peak be held liable for any lost or missing data or files resulting from a transfer to or from White Peak. You are solely responsible for backing up your data in all circumstances unless otherwise agreed to in writing.

Account Security and White Peak Systems
We will maintain commercially reasonable technical and operational measures designed to protect our internal networks from malicious activity and provide for the security and integrity thereof. However, the web is full of “bad actors” so we cannot and do not guarantee you that we can successfully protect you from them all. THEREFORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR HARM SUFFERED BY YOU RESULTING FROM A SECURITY INCIDENT NOR ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR RESOLVING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR WEBSITE SHOULD A SECURITY ISSUE OCCUR. You are responsible for determining whether the Services meet applicable regulatory standards and otherwise comply with your own security requirements. You agree to configure your use of the Services in such a way as to maintain the security of the Services and our network (e.g. by only uploading software that has been demonstrated to be secure, installing patches, and not sharing passwords).
It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of the installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. You are required to use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change or update your password before suspending your account.
The Services, including all related equipment, networks, and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. White Peak may, but is not obligated to, monitor our systems, including without limitation, to ensure that use is authorized, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied, and used for authorized purposes. By using the Services, you consent to monitoring for these purposes.
Should we determine that our network has been accessed in an unauthorized manner and that unauthorized access impacts your Services, we agree to notify you as soon as reasonably practicable after we have investigated the unauthorized access and fulfilled our legal obligations. Likewise, you agree to notify us should you identify unauthorized access to the Services.
Any account found connecting to a third-party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control requires the express written consent of the third party. White Peak may, at our discretion, request documentation to prove that your access to a third-party network or system is authorized.
Any account which causes us to receive an abuse report may be terminated and/or have access to services suspended. If you do not remove malicious content from your account after being notified by White Peak of an issue, we reserve the right to leave access to services disabled.
White Peak reserves the right to migrate your account from one data center to another in order to comply with applicable data center policies, local law or for technical or other reasons without notice.
HIPAA Disclaimer. We are not “HIPAA compliant.”
You are solely responsible for any applicable compliance with federal or state laws governing the privacy and security of personal data, including medical or other sensitive data. You acknowledge that the Services may not be appropriate for the storage or control of access to sensitive data, such as information about children or medical or health information. White Peak does not control or monitor the information or data you store on or transmit through, the Services. We specifically disclaim any representation or warranty that the Services, as offered, comply with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). Customers requiring secure storage of “protected health information” as defined under HIPAA are expressly prohibited from using the Services for such purposes. Storing and permitting access to “protected health information” is a material violation of this Agreement, and grounds for immediate account termination. We do not sign “Business Associate Agreements” and you agree that White Peak is not a Business Associate or subcontractor or agent of yours pursuant to HIPAA. If you have questions about the security of your data, you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cancellations and Refunds
No refunds will be provided.
You may terminate or cancel the Services by giving White Peak written notice via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In such an event: Cancellations will be effective on the account’s renewal date. (i.e. no partial month fees shall be refunded).
Once we receive your cancellation notice and have confirmed all necessary information with you by telephone, we will inform you in writing (typically email) that your account has been canceled.
We require all cancellations to be done through our defined process to (a) confirm your identity, (b) confirm in writing that you are prepared for all of your files and emails to be removed, and (c) document the request. This process aims to reduce the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and to ensure that you are aware that your files, emails, and account may be removed immediately and permanently after a cancellation request is processed.
White Peak may terminate your access to the Services, in whole or in part, without notice in the event that: (i) you fail to pay any fees due; (ii) you violate this Agreement; (iii) your conduct may harm White Peak or others or cause White Peak or others to incur liability, as determined by White Peak in our sole discretion; or (iv) as otherwise specified in this Agreement. In such event, White Peak shall not refund to you any fees paid in advance of such termination, and you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such termination. Additionally, White Peak may charge you for all fees due for the Services for the remaining portion of the then-current term.
UPON TERMINATION OF THE SERVICES FOR ANY REASON, USER CONTENT, USER WEBSITES, AND OTHER DATA WILL BE DELETED.
CPU, Bandwidth and Disk Usage
Permitted CPU and Disk Usage
All use of hosting space provided by White Peak is subject to the terms of this Agreement and the Acceptable Use Policy.
Shared hosting space may only be used for web files, active email and content of User Websites. Shared hosting space may not be used for storage (whether of media, emails, or other data), including, as offsite storage of electronic files, email or FTP hosts. White Peak expressly reserves the right to review every shared account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may be caused by a violation of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy. White Peak may, in our sole discretion, terminate access to the Services, apply additional fees, or remove or delete User Content for those accounts that are found to be in violation of White Peak’s terms and conditions.
Shared servers are not limited in their bandwidth allowance. Unlimited bandwidth usage is not available for resellers, dedicated or VPS servers, which are subject to the terms of the plan you purchased and can be viewed in your control panel.
If your shared server has a physical downtime that falls short of the 99.9% uptime guarantee, you may receive one (1) month of credit on your account. This uptime guarantee does not apply to planned maintenance. Approval of any credit is at the sole discretion of White Peak and may be dependent upon the justification provided. THIRD-PARTY MONITORING SERVICE REPORTS MAY NOT BE USED FOR JUSTIFICATION DUE TO A VARIETY OF FACTORS INCLUDING THE MONITOR’S NETWORK CAPACITY/TRANSIT AVAILABILITY. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please send us an email to email@example.com to create a support ticket to our Billing department with justification [within thirty (30) days of the end of the month for which you are requesting a credit].
No Resale Shared
Your account may not be used to resell web hosting to others.
White Peak reserves the right to change prices or any other charges at any time. We will provide you with at least thirty (30) days notice before charging you with any price change on any annual or longer term plans. It is your sole responsibility to periodically review billing information provided by White Peak through the user billing tool or through other methods of communication, including notices sent or posted by White Peak.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL WHITE PEAK ITS DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST DATA ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, OR ANY USER CONTENT, USER WEBSITES OR OTHER MATERIALS ACCESSED OR DOWNLOADED THROUGH THE SERVICES, EVEN IF WHITE PEAK IS AWARE OR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN, WHITE PEAK’S LIABILITY TO YOU, OR ANY PARTY CLAIMING THROUGH YOU, FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO WHITE PEAK FOR THE SERVICES IN THE THREE (3) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE INITIAL ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY. THIS IS AN AGGREGATE LIMIT. THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE CLAIM HEREUNDER WILL NOT INCREASE THIS LIMIT.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless White Peak, our affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (each an “Indemnified Party” and, collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, suits, actions, demands, proceedings (whether legal or administrative), and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney’s fees) threatened, asserted, or filed by a third-party against any of the Indemnified Parties arising out of or relating to (i) your use of the Services, (ii) any breach or violation by you of this Agreement; or (iii) any acts or omissions by you. The terms of this section shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
By using the Services, you hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in connection with any dispute relating to, concerning or arising out of this Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator chosen by White Peak and will be held at the AAA location chosen by White Peak. Payment of all filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this paragraph. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, White Peak will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitration before the AAA shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state arbitration law, governs all arbitration under this paragraph. All decisions rendered by the arbitrator will be binding and final. The arbitrator’s award is final and binding on all parties. The arbitrator’s authority to resolve and make written awards is limited to claims between you and White Peak alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. If you initiate litigation or any other proceeding against White Peak in violation of this paragraph, you agree to pay White Peak’s reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with our enforcement of this paragraph.
White Peak and User are independent contractors and nothing contained in this Agreement places White Peak and User in the relationship of principal and agent, partners or joint ventures. Neither party has, expressly or by implication, or may represent itself as having, any authority to make contracts or enter into any agreements in the name of the other party, or to obligate or bind the other party in any manner whatsoever.
Governing Law; Jurisdiction
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the formation of this Agreement or the breach of this Agreement, including any claim based upon an alleged tort, shall be governed by the substantive laws of the State of Nevada. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
White Peak shall not be responsible for any damages your business may suffer. White Peak makes no warranties of any kind, expressed or implied for the Services. White Peak disclaims any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, including loss of data resulting from delays, delivery failures, wrong deliveries, and any and all service interruptions caused by White Peak or our employees.
Backups and Data Loss
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. White Peak’s backup service runs only for sites with less than 20GB of User Content and only once a week and overwrites any of our previous backups. Only one week of backups are kept at a time. This service is provided as a courtesy and may be modified or terminated at any time at White Peak’s sole discretion. White Peak does not maintain backups of accounts with 20GB or more of User Content so User must run their own backups. White Peak is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. EVEN THOUGH WE ARE PROVIDING THIS SERVICE AS A COURTESY TO YOU, YOU AGREE TO TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL FILES AND DATA TRANSFERRED AND TO MAINTAIN ALL APPROPRIATE BACKUP OF FILES AND DATA STORED ON WHITE PEAK’S SERVERS.
IF YOU ARE USING OUR HOSTING FOR YOUR EMAIL SERVICE, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU RETAIN A COPY OF ALL OF YOUR MAILBOXES ON YOUR LOCAL DESKTOP. IF YOU RELY ON WEBMAIL EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE STORAGE OF YOUR EMAIL MAILBOX CONTENT, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK AND WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY WARRANTY OR ASSURANCES THAT YOUR MAILBOX CONTENTS WILL BE RETAINED BY US.
Any account using more than 20 gigs of disk space will be removed from our off site weekly backup with the exception of databases continuing to be backed up. All data will continue to be mirrored to a secondary drive to help protect against data loss in the event of a drive failure.
THE SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE BASIS.” EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION, WHITE PEAK AND OUR AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, FOR THE SERVICES PROVIDED HEREUNDER. WHITE PEAK AND OUR AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES (I) THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR FREE OR COMPLETELY SECURE; (II) AS TO THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES; OR (III) AS TO THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY OR CONTENT OF ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH THE SERVICES. WHITE PEAK AND OUR AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS ARE NOT LIABLE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY, FOR THE CONTENT OF ANY DATA TRANSFERRED EITHER TO OR FROM USERS OR STORED BY USERS ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICES. THE TERMS OF THIS SECTION SHALL SURVIVE ANY TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.

If any provision or portion of any provision of this Agreement is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions or portions (unless otherwise specified) thereof shall remain in full force and effect.
No failure or delay by you or White Peak to exercise any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise of any right or remedy. No express waiver of, or assent to, any breach of or default in any term or condition of this Agreement by any party hereto shall constitute a waiver of, or an assent to, any succeeding breach of or default in the same or any other term or condition hereof.
You may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any of your rights or obligations hereunder, without the prior written consent of White Peak. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Agreement shall be null and void and of no force or effect whatsoever. White Peak may assign our rights and obligations under this Agreement, and may engage subcontractors or agents in performing our duties and exercising our rights hereunder, without the consent of User. This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Neither party is liable for any default or delay in the performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement (other than failure to make payments when due) if such default or delay is caused, directly or indirectly, by forces beyond such party’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, fire, flood, acts of God, labor disputes, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, interruptions of transportation or communications, supply shortages or the failure of any third-party to perform any commitment relative to the production or delivery of any equipment or material required for such party to perform its obligations hereunder.
