3.3. Terms of Service
3.3.1. By placing a service order, the Client agrees to the terms under this document and to the general terms for the provision of telecommunication services by Neterra. General terms for the provision of telecommunication services by Neterra could be found in the web-based control panel under category “General Terms” in the section “Knowledge Base”.
3.3.2. The Client could upgrade or downgrade the parameters of the service via the web-based control panel at any time. In this case, upgrade means that the service parameters are increased to a higher value than the current and downgrade means that the server parameters are decreased to a lower value than the current.
The Client could downgrade the resources only to the base configuration of the service that they have purchased. Parameters of the base configuration are listed in the web-based control panel.
3.3.3. If the option “Backup Space” is active, the Client gets their Cloud server archived. When performing a backup, a compressed image (snapshot of the disk with the data and operating system) is created and transferred to remote storage server. Backup could be performed once only or periodically – automatically in time predefined by the Client. Configuring automatic backups or performing it once are options in the web-based control panel. When the purchased Backup Space is filled up, no more backups could be performed. The Client could purchase additional backup space or delete some of the old copies via the web-based control panel.
3.3.4. The servers restart automatically to reflect some of the changes, made via the web-based control panel. Such changes include upgrade or downgrade, network settings adjustments, etc.
3.3.5. When the Cloud servers are configured automatically, a random Administrator (root) passwords are generated. These password are visible in the web-based control panel. For higher security, Neterra recommends that the Client change these passwords directly on the servers, so they are different than the auto-generated ones. In case of a lost password, there is an option in the web-based control panel to reset it.
3.3.6. The Internet connectivity mentioned in the parameters of the service could be shared or dedicated. If shared, the mentioned capacity is not guaranteed. Dedicated connectivity provides guaranteed symmetrical speed access to the Internet.
3.3.7. The Client receives few usernames and passwords to access the servers resources and the web-based control panel. The Client has full responsibility for preserving the usernames and passwords and for all circumstances arising from their use.
3.3.8. Neterra is not responsible for actions regarding additional user accounts created by the Client and assigned with management rights via the web-based control panel.
3.3.9. The data on the severs is fully provided by the Client. Neterra is responsible neither for this data nor for the circumstances arising from the data use and deployment, nor for the circumstances arising from using the service by the Client or by third parties.
3.3.10. Access to the service is suspended, if the Client does not renew their service after the period, for which it is paid, expires. If the Client does not renew the service in the next 14 days, the servers and all data on them will be terminated. If Neterra has enough free resources, the data might be kept for a 30-day period before termination.
4. Payments and Deposit
4.1. Neterra supports few payment methods, so the Client has a wider choice when paying their orders.
4.2. The orders are processed automatically when the Client uses online payment methods (ePay.bg, PayPal, credit cards, etc.). When the Client uses other payment methods (bank transfer, etc.), the orders are processed up to 1 business day after the payment is received.
4.3. The Client could add funds as a deposit in the web-based control panel. The deposit is used automatically for the subsequent payments. If the amount of the deposit is equal to or exceeds the amount of the next due payment, the transaction is processed automatically. If the amount of the deposit is less than the amount of the next due payment, the Client has to pay only the difference.
4.4. When downgrading, the value of the downgraded resources is calculated to the end of the payment period and the sum is transferred in the form of deposit to the Client in the web-based control panel.
4.5. The Client could request a refund of the amount available as a deposit. The amount of the deposit could be requested only after service is canceled or if the contract is terminated by mutual consent and the Client does not use other Cloud services provided by Neterra. The Client must declare their willingness by sending a support ticket via the web-based control panel in a 30-day period after the service or the contract is terminated. The amount subjected to refund is sent back as a bank transfer or the way the funds have been added to the account in the web-based control panel in 30 days after the registered request.
