For Your account, Skynet Hosting SRL will make every effort to keep a constant online presence. You agree that the network may occasionally go down for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to utility outages, equipment malfunctions, natural disasters, human error, and acts of God. In no circumstances shall Skynet Hosting SRL be responsible to You for any damages arising from or connected to Skynet Hosting SRL's failure or delay in providing Internet connection pursuant to this Agreement. In no case may Skynet Hosting SRL be liable to You for any indirect, special, or consequential damages or lost profits resulting from or connected with the performance or breach of this Agreement.

All accounts, subaccounts, and other account names connected to Your principal account are governed by this Agreement. You are in charge of each account's use, regardless of who is using it or under what name, and you are in charge of ensuring that everyone using the account complies fully with this Agreement. A Skynet Hosting SRL account cannot be transferred without the company's prior written consent.
6. IP ADDRESS
Skynet Hosting SRL provides you with an Internet Protocol ("IP") address as part of your utilization of Skynet Hosting SRL services. The right to use that IP address will remain with and belong only to Skynet Hosting SRL, and You will have no right to use that IP address except as allowed by Skynet Hosting SRL in its sole and absolute discretion.This agreement is not violated if IP addresses are blocked in a particular region by service providers, local governments, or government organizations.
If the ordered VPS's IP address is not accessible to you in a particular country, region, or territory, it may be because local service providers are obligated by law to prohibit access to a specific range of IP addresses. The provider cannot influence this situation: the IP address is routed and available globally on RIS/RIR servers and traffic exchange points, and therefore technically is announced to the whole world. In this situation, you will have to order a new IP address or a new VPS - and perhaps the new address will be available. Please note that if service disruptions occur due to restrictions or personal internet access issues, it falls outside our responsibility, and therefore, no service refunds can be entertained.
7. ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY FOR VPS ACCOUNTS
Disc Space Use.
Your account disc space is limited in accordance with the VPS Package. Up to 4 GB from the disc space is allocated to the VPS system files and this space cannot be used for storing Your content.
The initial and renewal fees for each VPS include the number of IPs in accordance with VPS Package. Additional IPs can be added to a VPS. In such a case Skynet Hosting SRL will charge the appropriate fee for the dedicated IP. The fee is applied and should be paid on a per month basis. The fee is non-refundable.
Please note that our services are configured with built-in service limitations designed to prevent invasive activities, including but not limited to denial of service attacks and port scans. If triggered, these limitations may result in an enforced service interruption. In no event shall Skynet Hosting SRL be liable to You for any damages resulting from or related to such interruption.
8. STORAGE AND SECURITY
At all times, You shall bear full risk of loss and damage to Your server and all of Your server content. The confidentiality of Your password and account information is solely your responsibility. You acknowledge and agree that You are solely responsible for all acts, omissions and use under and charges incurred with Your account or password or in connection with the server or any of Your server content displayed, linked, transmitted through or stored on the server. You shall be solely responsible for undertaking measures to: (I) prevent any loss or damage to Your server content; (II) maintain independent archival and backup copies of Your server content; (III) ensure the security, confidentiality and integrity of Your server content transmitted through or stored on Skynet Hosting SRL servers; and (IV) ensure the confidentiality of Your password.

The services offered by Skynet Hosting SRL are not intended to provide a PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant environment and therefore should not be utilized as such without further compliance activity.
