InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting's Policies, Guidelines, and Disclaimer are intended for all domains residing on InfoClear Internet Consulting servers. By using our web hosting services, you agree to comply with our policies. InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting has a zero-tolerance policy with regard to all Unacceptable Content and Behavior and no exceptions will be made to these policies.

We respect freedom of speech and expression unless it is harmful to others. These policies are imposed to protect you, and other InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting customers and us against such harm.
The client must be 18 years of age to obtain our services. If you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent or legal guardian obtain services for you.
Full payment is required before any hosting service is rendered,
which includes renewals. InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting will accept
Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX, PayPal, and Check. If paying by
credit card, the card that you use to activate your account will
be automatically charged each month, unless you have chosen to pay
for multiple months. Prepayment is due each anniversary (monthly
or annual) following the date the account was established. Billing
will continue until you cancel your hosting account.
All payment-due notices will be sent by electronic mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax. Prepayment is due each anniversary (one month, one year) following the date the account was established. Billing will continue until you cancel your hosting account. You may cancel at any time. As a policy, we do not offer credits or refunds for hosting time already expended unless you are within the thirty day money back guarantee. If cancellation is made by InfoClear due to a policy violation, there will be no refund. Additional features can be added at any time. Monthly features are not prorated. InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting reserves the right to change prices at any time.
All past due accounts will be placed with collections and any additional fees will be the responsibility of the client and may be reported to the appropriate credit reporting agencies if left uncollected.

There are no refunds after 30-days.
Notification of cancellation must be received at least ten business days prior to your cycle date, with the cycle date being the day of the month you sign up, in order to avoid charges in full for the next cycle. It is the Client's responsibility to secure email confirmation from InfoClear that the account has been cancelled. If the Client has not yet received email confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you will continue to be invoiced.
If the account has a balance due at the time of cancellation, this balance must be paid in full before the account can be cancelled. Cancellation does not absolve the account holder of any outstanding financial obligations. Billing for the account will continue until the balance is paid in full.
InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting's services are independent of account usage and domain name records, and are still in effect whether the account holder's domain is pointing to InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting's nameservers or to some other nameservers. If the account holder transfers a domain without properly notifying InfoClear Internet Consulting, they will continue to be charged/billed until the cancellation guidelines have been followed. In other words, until you have notified InfoClear Internet Consulting/InfoClear Hosting of your cancellation, we are still providing your account with our services and you will be billed for same.
