Xhost Terms and Conditions of Service
The following terms of agreement are presented to you as a condition of your acceptance of Xhost
service provision. Acceptance of Xhost services and utilities constitutes an agreement between the
provider, Xhost, and it's customer to adhere to the following terms and conditions. The date and time
of acceptance will be recorded at time of service provision. Any changes to these terms and conditions
from time to time will be notified via electronic mail to the applicant.
All payment is in advance. All advice of payment will be via electronic medium, no paper invoicing
will be provided unless by special request whereupon a charge will be levied. Xhost will revoke
service provision without notice, if payment is not received within 14 days of the account due
payment date. This will vary depending on whether the account is monthly, or yearly pre-paid. An
administration charge of £50 will be levied to re-instate any account revoked because of non-payment.
Unpaid accounts will be deleted after 90 days of continuous non-payment.
Money transfers, either Credit or debit card, Cheque or International money transfer will be converted
into the sterling equivalents using the internationally regulated and agreed published rates at date
of billing. No liability is assumed by Xhost in relation to any loss arising on the Customer as a
result of the chosen mode of payment.
Non-delivery or non-performance of services by any third party other than Xhost's sub-contractors
shall not give the Customer any right to delay any payment to Xhost or to make any claim whatsoever
against Xhost. Should Xhost be unable to provide service we shall refund the payments made by the
customer in respect of the account, no liability is assumed by Xhost in respect of any consequential
loss (including loss of profits) whether direct, indirect or otherwise arising as a result of a
failure of service.
Xhost offers a 30 day money back guarantee to all customers. In the event of dissatisfaction with
service levels the Customer should e-mail the billing department on Accounts@xhost.co.uk up to and
on the 30th day of service, customers can seek refund of all service charges levied during the period.
This does not include digital certificate or domain name registration charges; domain names, once ordered, cannot be cancelled
and must be paid for in full. Normal cancellation of accounts beyond this period must be notified to
Xhost via e-mail. No refunds for pre-paid service periods are given.
Xhost reserves the right to suspend service, without notice in the event that the conditions for
acceptable and appropriate use are not met. Xhost will provide a written closure notice in these
circumstances. All monies will be refunded for the unit period paid on a pro rata basis. Xhost will
not, in any event, be liable for any consequential loss (including loss of profits) whether direct,
indirect or otherwise arising as a result of any suspension of service by Xhost.
Limitation of Liability
Nothing under these terms and conditions limits Xhost’s liability for any fraudulent statement or
for personal injury or death caused by Xhost’s negligence. However, the Customer acknowledges and
takes notice that the services are not appropriate for use in circumstances where personal injury or
death could arise from reliance on the services whether or not Xhost is negligent and that it should
satisfy itself as to the veracity of any statements made by Xhost or on Xhost’s behalf.
The entire liability of Xhost and the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, arising in respect of any
tort, breach of duty (statutory or otherwise) or breach of this agreement by Xhost (and whether or
not by Xhost’s negligence) is limited to the fee paid for the service or services in respect of which
the alleged tort or breach has arisen in the period of 12 months preceding the event giving rise to
In no event will Xhost be liable to the Customer for any indirect or consequential loss or damage
whatever (including, without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, loss of business, loss of
opportunity, loss of profits).
Even if Xhost has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damage such advice shall not
constitute the loss or damage if it arises as direct loss or damage.
Any liability of Xhost whatever arising under these terms or otherwise in respect of the service or
any product shall be deemed to end 12 months after the date on which the Customer became aware or
ought reasonably to have become aware of the event giving rise to the liability. For the avoidance of
doubt, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that no claims or actions by the Customer can be validly
made after the expiry of 12 months following such date.
Xhost accepts no liability for any loss of revenue or business whether new or existing as a result
of using Xhost's services. All parties agree to use Xhost's services and utilities without any avenue
