Exelion, LLC ("Exelion," "we," "us," or "our") owns and operates the website located at www.exelion.net (the "Site"). Please read these Terms of Service carefully. These Terms of Service state the terms and conditions under which you may use our services which are available through the Site (the "Services"). By clicking "I ACCEPT," you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be legally bound by these Terms of Service and you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old or older. If you are accepting these Terms of Service on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to the terms and conditions set forth herein. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree to any of these terms, then you are not permitted to use the Services. These Terms of Service may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. If we change any material terms of these Terms of Service, we will notify you by posting a message upon your next log-in, and you will be required to click "I ACCEPT" in order to continue using the Services after the date of any such modification.
Through the Site, we offer unmanaged dedicated server hosting and related services. The Services are offered to you on a subscription basis ("Subscription").
You may create, store and/or transmit data through the Services (collectively, "Hosted Data"). We cannot and do not review it all--we may act as a passive conduit for distribution of the Hosted Data. That said, we may remove Hosted Data that does not adhere to our Acceptable Use Policy (located at www.exelion.net/aup), or that is offensive or otherwise unacceptable to us in our sole discretion.
As between us and you, you retain all copyrights and other intellectual property rights in and to the Hosted Data. You warrant and represent that (i) the Hosted Data provided through your account is legal and does not infringe on any intellectual property rights of any third party; and (ii) you either own, or have a sufficient license to, all Hosted Data provided through your account. You hereby grant us an irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable license to use your Hosted Data as reasonably necessary for us to provide the Services.
You are welcome to browse the Site as a visitor without providing any information to us. If you would like to use the Services, you will need to register as a user (a "Registered User") by creating an account. During the registration process, you will have to provide your name, company name (if applicable), and email address, and any other information requested during the registration process. You will also have to create a user name and password for your account. You represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate and you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality of your user account, as well as for its use and misuse. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a user name or password. We reserve the right to delete or change your user name and/or password at any time and for any reason.
You agree to pay any applicable Subscription fees made known to you during registration. Any fees paid to us are non-refundable. We may use a third party service provider ("Third Party") to process your payment in connection with your use of the Services. You warrant and represent that you are the valid owner or an authorized user, of the credit card you provide to such Third Party, and that all credit information is accurate. We reserve the right to change any of the fees that we charge, or to institute new or additional fees, at any time upon notice to you.
It is important to note that when you sign up to use the Services, your Subscription will automatically renew until you cancel it. You may cancel at any time by notifying us in writing no later than ten (10) days before the next upcoming renewal, and the cancellation will take effect the following month subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Section titled "Effect of Termination." At the end of each month, we will send you a reminder e-mail about the Subscription's automatic renewal. Again, if you do not cancel, then your Subscription will automatically renew under the same Subscription.
You agree not to exceed the allotted data transfer volume ("Internet Bandwidth") per month for your account. You may upgrade the Internet Bandwidth allowance for your account for additional fees.
