Your submittal of an order for service, or your continued use of SelectNet's service(s)
after an updated posting, shall be deemed to be your acceptance of any such modifications.
The use of SelectNet's services is subject to the following Terms and Conditions:
Orders for Service and Service Date. All orders for service are subject to acceptance

confirmation of the order is sent to Customer. SelectNet may refuse to accept
any order, or delay acceptance, awaiting completion of conditions SelectNet may
choose to exercise. The Service Date shall be the date any SelectNet services
ordered under this Agreement are first available for use by Customer. Customer
understands and acknowledges that certain services require third-party involvement,
of which SelectNet has no control, and Service Date may be delayed or postponed,
or services as included in this Agreement or Order Form may be unavailable
to Customer. SelectNet shall endeavor to provide Customer with reasonable
notice by telephone, email or fax of any intent to delay or decline the
acceptance of any order, or if third-parties have notified SelectNet of
any delays or changes in available service.
Customer Use of Services. Customer agrees that SelectNet's services may
only be used for lawful purposes. Any use of the services that violates
any local, state, provincial, federal or international law is prohibited.
Customer also agrees that use of the services shall be in accordance with
SelectNet's Acceptable Use Policies, applicable Domain Name Registration Agreements and
Domain Name Dispute Policies, and others, which are posted on its Web site (http://www.select.net)
and modified from time to time. It is Customer's responsibility to monitor all policies
regularly to determine whether the policies have been modified. If changes
have been made, and if Customer does not agree with any policy change, Customer
must immediately stop using SelectNet's services and notify SelectNet of the
cancellation of service.
Term. The Term shall be as shown on the Order Form and shall begin
on the Service Date. In any case, the minimum length of term for services
shall be 1 month.
For initial multi-year or single-year terms: After the initial term, this
Agreement shall automatically renew for one (1) year terms at the same
fees unless a party gives the other party written termination notice at
least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the then existing term.
For initial terms less than one (1) year: The Agreement shall renew
automatically for identical successive terms and for the same fees
unless either party provides notification of non-renewal at least ten
(10) days prior to the end of the current term to avoid being charged
for the next billing cycle.
Changes.SelectNet reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions,
its services, fees, and order forms at any time, however, the service fees stated
on the Agreement or Order Form shall remain in effect during the term of the
Agreement. (If Customer has prepaid for services, the service fees stated on
the Agreement or Order Form shall remain in effect for the period that Customer
has prepaid.) Increases in fees, if any, shall become effective for the successive
term. Customer may elect not to accept any increase in fees, at which time
Customer may decide, at its sole discretion, to cancel this Agreement and
Payment of Initial Fees and Service Fees. SelectNet's accounting cycle begins
on the 1st of each month. Customer agrees to pay for the Services rendered by
SelectNet in advance of the time period for which the Services are to be provided.
Payment of Initial Fees (or Setup Fees) and the Service Fee for the first billing
period shall accompany the Agreement or Order Form for Service. SelectNet
shall not be obligated to provide or initiate any Services until this initial
payment has been received.
Payment for additional on-line time, additional Web site or FTP storage or
traffic, or co-location traffic shall be invoiced each month and is due and
payable according to the terms stated on the invoice. SelectNet has no
obligation to warn Customer regarding on-line time, traffic or storage.
Interruption of Services, Accounting Hold, and Cancellation for Nonpayment.
Services may be interrupted if any fees are delinquent, or if Customer engages
in any conduct or activities which SelectNet in its sole discretion believes
breaches any of the terms of this Agreement. Delinquent accounts are those that
remain unpaid 10 days beyond the beginning of the accounting cycle, or the
invoice due date, whichever is later. Any delinquent Customer accounts are
subject to a late charge of 1-1/2% per month and suspension of services
("accounting hold") and may not be used. SelectNet accounts on "accounting
hold" continue to accrue charges while they are on hold. Customer must
pay all past due amounts in order to remove accounts from their "accounting
In the event SelectNet instigates any legal action to collect any sums owed
by customer, SelectNet shall be entitled to an award of reasonable attorney
fees and costs incurred by SelectNet in connection with such legal action,
if a judgment in SelectNet's favor is entered in the legal action. An
interruption of service does not relieve Customer of its obligation to
continue to pay Service fees. This Agreement is cancelable by SelectNet
if Customer fails to pay any amount payable under this Agreement on the
date that such amount is due and payable.
Cancellation. The Agreement is cancelable by Customer upon payment of
all past-due fees and fees due for the remainder of the current term.

password. That User name and password are the means through
which Customer accesses certain Services. Please safeguard the User name and password from any
unauthorized use. Customer acknowledges and agree that in no event will SelectNet Internet Services be liable for the unauthorized use or

otherwise stipulated by that domain registrar.

violates the trademark rights or other intellectual property rights of a trademark
or owner. In case of such action, Customer agrees to the following:

the event of such dispute over a Customer's domain name.

profits) regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including
negligence), or otherwise, even if SelectNet has been advised of the possibility
of such damages.
Customer agrees that a SelectNet contact person shall be named as the "technical
or zone contact" for any domains hosted at SelectNet. Customer agrees that SelectNet
may create and use network resources with the Customer's domain name for
administrative, testing, and network infrastructure enhancement purposes.

the authority to nonetheless bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein,
including the Dispute Policy. Customer accepts liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the Services.

by wrongful use of the domain name, unless Customer promptly discloses the identity of the licensee to a party providing

right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of

SelectNet is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly
children. For this reason, parents who wish to allow their children access to the email service
