Terms and Conditions of Service
Chillidog Software ("Chillidog Hosting" or we/us) provides certain content-hosting services ("Services") to you, subject to these Terms and Conditions of Service ("TACOS").

We may change these TACOS or make new TACOS at any time. Although we will attempt to notify you through reasonable means when the TACOS change, we are under no obligation to do so.

Your membership identifies you as a person and is non-transferable. You may not have more than one membership. You may not set up a membership for an individual other than yourself, access any membership other than your own, or let anyone else access your membership.

You must provide accurate, complete, and current information about yourself as needed for registration and payment ("Registration Information"). In the event of a change, you must promptly update the Registration Information to ensure that it remains accurate, complete, and current.

We want you to be happy with our service. However, we understand that it is not for everyone. We offer a very flexible refund policy in keeping with our belief that you should be able to try things out without taking a big risk.

We will refund the unused balance of your account(s) and close your membership at any time upon request. However, if you have registered domains through us, you must transfer them elsewhere or abandon them prior to requesting cancellation.

We typically issue refunds through the same method (e.g. credit card, PayPal) that you used to pay. Due to time limits imposed by our payment processors, sometimes this is not possible. In those cases, we will try to offer you a variety of refund options, some of which may carry a fee based on the cost. For example, we can mail a check to US residents for a fee of $1.00.

If issuing a refund would cost more than the amount of the refund, your remaining balance will be considered a non-refundable credit.

Billing Practices
All credit card transactions you submit to our service will appear on your statement as Chillidog SW.

We charge your credit card only at your request and only with your authorization. If you submit a credit card as payment, you warrant to us that you have provided true and accurate card information and that you are fully authorized to use that credit card.

As described under
Refunds, we have a very flexible refund policy. Therefore, there should be no reason to ever file a chargeback request for credit card transactions. We investigate all such requests as potential fraud, and are required to freeze all affected accounts while the investigation is in progress. Because of the time and expense incurred in responding to a chargeback request, we charge a fee of up to $25.00 per occurrence. This fee will be waived if we find the chargeback is legitimate or due to an error on our part.

We do not keep your credit card information above and beyond the minimum amount necessary (your name, billing address, and the last four digits of the card number) to identify transactions. This means we can never charge you for other transactions unless you explicitly log in and provide your card information.

Should you commit credit card fraud of any kind in conjunction with our service, we will wreak dreadful vengeance upon you to the fullest extent of the law.

You are solely responsible for any and all information, literature, software, works of art, or any other materials ("Content") you make available using the Services.

You may not upload, publish, or otherwise use the Services to make available any Content that:
  • violates the laws of the United States of America; or
  • you are contractually prohibited from distributing; or
  • is tortious under the laws of the United States of America; or
  • your distribution of which infringes upon the intellectual property rights of others; or
  • you otherwise do not have the legal right to distribute.

You may not:
  • impersonate or falsely represent affiliation with Chillidog Hosting, its employees, owners, or contractors; or
  • engage in any activity that would cause Chillidog Hosting to be in violation of the terms of service it obtains from other parties; or
  • interfere with or disrupt the operation of the Services, or equipment used in providing the Services; or
  • allow any other individual to use your Chillidog Hosting username and password to access our systems; or
  • verbally abuse, harass, or threaten Chillidog Hosting, its employees, owners, or contractors.

We may provide a variety of ancillary services from time to time for the express purpose of facilitating your ability to upload and manage your Content. You may not use said ancillary services (including but not limited to ssh access) for any other purpose.

International use
It is your sole responsibility to ensure your compliance with any and all applicable local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable Content.
  • Chillidog Hosting will generally cooperate with foreign authorities in the investigation or prosecution of alleged criminal activities. There is one important exception to this policy. We will generally not help authorities of any repressive foreign government to investigate or prosecute alleged criminal activities if (and only if) the scope of those activities is limited to the operation of a website on our service that is critical of that government in a manner that would be Constitutionally protected speech in the United States.
This exception is granted on a case-by-case basis. You should not assume you have this protection unless we have told you in writing that you do, in conjunction with an anonymous hosting arrangement. You should not bet your life or your family's life on our ability to protect you. Under no circumstances will this protection extend to non-speech-related criminal activity.

You indemnify and hold harmless Chillidog Hosting and its subsidiaries, affiliates, owners, officers, directors, agents, partners, employees, and contractors from any and all claims, demands, losses, causes of action, damages, lawsuits, and judgments, including attorneys' fees and costs, arising out of or relating to your Content, your use of the Services, or your activities in conjunction with the Services.

Modifications to serivces
  • Chillidog Hosting reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services or any portion thereof with or without notice.

Security & availability of content
  • Chillidog Hosting makes a good faith effort to provide the Services in a reliable and consistent fashion. No guarantee is made as to the availability of Content at a particular time or the persistence of Content. Similarly, Chillidog Hosting makes a good faith effort to ensure the security of your Content but cannot guarantee it will remain secure. It is your sole responsibility to secure your Content and to restore it in the event of a system failure.

  • Chillidog Hosting reserves the right at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to your violation of these TACOS, to limit, suspend, or terminate your use of the Services and to discard any of your Content. Such termination of your use of the Services may be performed without prior notice, and Chillidog Hosting may immediately deactivate or delete your Content and all related files relating to the Services and/or bar all access to the same. Chillidog Hosting will not be liable to you or to any third party for any termination of your access to Services.
If Chillidog Hosting terminates your service because you violated our TACOS, we may retain some or all of any balance remaining in your personal bandwidth account as liquidated damages. You will remain liable for any additional damages you cause Chillidog Hosting by your violation of these TACOS. Please respect our TACOS.

Limitation of liability
  • Chillidog Hosting, including but not limited to its officers, directors, owners, employees, and contractors, shall not under any circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, or any other type of damages, including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses even if Chillidog Hosting has been specifically advised of the possibility of such damages. Your sole remedy regardless of the circumstances shall be the return of funds contained in your Personal Bandwidth Account(s) that have not been disbursed or allocated to pay for Services provided or liquidated damages.

Exclusions & Limitations
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above may not apply to you.
You are solely responsible for any and all fees associated with obtaining access to Javabean Hosting and associated Services.

Notices to you may be made through regular mail, electronic mail, via the Javabean Hosting website, or during the normal course of providing the Services.

General Information
These TACOS constitute the entire agreement between you and Chillidog Hosting. The TACOS govern your use of the Services, superceding any prior agreements between you and Chillidog Hosting including but not limited to any prior versions of the TACOS. The TACOS and the relationship between you and Chillidog Hosting shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The failure of Chillidog Hosting to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TACOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TACOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TACOS remain in full force and effect. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action you have arising out of or related to your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action first arose or be forever barred. The section titles in the TACOS are for clarity only and have no legal or contractual effect.
