Effective Date: March 4, 2003
Revised: January 1, 2017

This Agreement is made and entered between SelectNet Internet Services, a division of Pearl Technologies, Inc., a California Corporation (hereinafter called SelectNet), and the customer (hereinafter called Customer) and supersedes any other written or oral agreement or understanding. The following Terms and Conditions shall apply to the provision and use of the products and services (individually a "Service" and collectively the "Services") provided pursuant to a SelectNet Internet Services order form, submitted electronically via SelectNet's Web site at http://www.select.net, or via U.S. Mail, Facsimile, or hand-delivered. SelectNet may amend these Terms and Conditions at any time and post them on its Web site (http://www.select.net) indicating the effective date thereof. 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 by SelectNet. An order will be deemed accepted by SelectNet when 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.

Renewal. 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 terminate service.

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 hold" status.

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. Unless otherwise required by Special Provisions for your service, the request to cancel this Agreement must be in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the current term. Customer may send cancellation request via an email message to customerservice@select.net, by postal mail, or by fax. Upon receipt of notice of cancellation, SelectNet shall send written confirmation via email, which shall indicate the effective date of cancellation. If Customer does not receive this email confirmation within 2 business days, please call SelectNet and speak to a representative.

Co-location Services. Please refer to Addendums #1 and #2 for additional Terms and Conditions which may apply to this services.

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 misuse of Customer's User name or password.

SelectNet considers the entity named as the administrative contact for the domain name at the time the controlling User name and password are secured to be the registrant of that domain name.

(ii) Customer agrees that SelectNet has the right to discontinue name service in the event of such dispute over a Customer's domain name. (iii) Customer agrees that should SelectNet discontinue name service for Customer's domain upon notification of such dispute that SelectNet will not be liable for any loss of business, interruption of business, loss of Customer's domain name, or any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including lost 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.

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 should assist them in setting up any relevant accounts and supervise their access to the email service.
