Stormy Hosting relies on specialized third-party backup software to manage the automatic backup process from your account or server onto the backup storage. Technical errors or problems can occasionally prevent the successful completion of a backup run. As such, you are strongly encouraged to regularly test the backup restoration process on your server and report any issues to Stormy Hostings's support team.

3. Privacy Policy

WHC is committed to your privacy, and does not sell, trade or give out your personal information unless required as part of your service contract or by law. For our complete privacy policy, please consult https://www.stormyhosting.com/policies.

4. Acceptable Use Policy

In a shared web hosting environment, several clients must share server resources. As such, it is important not to use your hosting account in any way that may negatively affect other Stormy Hosting clients. Our Acceptable Use Policy (hereinafter “AUP”) describes what is and what is not allowed on our servers, and is available at https://www.stormyhosting.com/policies.

5. SSL Certificates

Unless otherwise requested prior to the installation, an SSL certificate will be installed and will work exclusively on the domain name or subdomain that was requested during your order. Free Certificates are available through the use of Let’s Encrypt. SSL Certificates are non-transferable. The installation of an SSL certificate does not guarantee the use of encrypted https protocol throughout your website. Additional website configuration changes are recommended to fully make use of your certificate's data encryption.

6. Dedicated IP Address

At the outset, for Web Hosting, or WordPress Hosting accounts, you will be assigned a shared IP address. You may request one (1) dedicated IP address per hosting account, at additional cost. Stormy Hosting reserves the right to evaluate the pertinence of any dedicated IP address request and deny such requests if they do not comply with ARIN regulations. Stormy Hosting retains full control and rights to the IP addresses assigned to you at all times and reserves the right to modify or remove assigned addresses with prior notice.

A dedicated IP address change may incur an unavailability of your Website lasting up to 24 hours, due to DNS propagation.

7. Site Transfers

In most cases, Stormy Hosting can help move your website from any other compatible web hosting provider (also called a website migration). However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and Stormy Hosting can not make guarantees regarding the availability, accuracy, possibility, or time required to complete such a transfer. Each hosting company is different, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it difficult or impossible to migrate some or all account data. We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host.

A free site transfer service request can be made within 30 days of a new web hosting order by opening a Support ticket from your Client Portal which includes all necessary information to allow us to connect to your other provider's account and retrieve all your data.

8. Service Guarantees

8.1. Money-back guarantee

Stormy Hosting is fully committed to your satisfaction and offers the following money-back guarantee: if you are not 100% satisfied for the service obtained within 30 days of your purchase, Stormy Hosting will refund your hosting costs.

The money-back guarantee applies exclusively to eligible services as described in paragraph 11 of the present Terms and Conditions.

8.2. Guaranteed technical support in 24 hours or less

Stormy Hosting guarantees a response to technical support questions received through our Client Portal Help system within a maximum of 24 hours (although we normally reply much faster than that!). This guarantee does not apply to incomplete support requests, requests that do not reach us (due to inappropriate use of the helpdesk support system), requests not directly linked to the services provided by us or that fall outside the scope of our service support, requests that have been responded to but require additional resolution time, or requests that cannot be answered due to causes outside of our direct control.

8.3. 99.9% Guaranteed Server Availability

Stormy Hosting understands the importance of having a continuously available Website and guarantees a server availability (or “uptime”) of 99.9%, calculated monthly. Our services are considered available if they respond to external PING requests from at least two different external monitoring services.

Any scheduled maintenance outage will not be considered when computing monthly uptime. Sporadic or localized outages due to Internet network conditions outside of our control will also not be considered when computing monthly uptime, nor will incorrect DNS or account manipulations by the Client, including programming errors or script errors.

9. Renewals

Stormy Hosting will generate renewal invoices automatically for all your active services at least 14 days prior to their expiration date. When we generate a new invoice, we'll send you an email with a copy of the invoice and will also make the invoice available in your Client Portal.

If you do not wish to renew a service, please submit a service cancellation request or update your domain's auto-renewal settings through the Client Portal at least 10 days prior to your service’s renewal date in order to avoid being charged for its renewal.

By making any purchase by credit card or by adding a valid credit card to your Client Portal, you authorize Stormy Hosting to automatically attempt to charge this credit card for any upcoming or overdue invoices on your account, until otherwise requested. You may manage and remove your credit card information on file from your Client Portal at any time.

Expired services can be suspended if left unpaid by their due date and may be permanently deleted, at Stormy Hosting’s sole discretion. Reactivating suspended services may incur additional fees.

You must maintain an active email address on file with us at all times in order to receive important account information, including invoices and expiry notices. Services not paid on their due date risk being suspended, and may be terminated permanently shortly after, at Stormy Hosting’s sole discretion. Should you wish to reactivate your services after they have been suspended, a reactivation fee may apply.

10. Payments

Stormy Hosting accepts payments by PayPal, though more Payment Gateways may be added without prior notice.

A first payment is required prior to the activation of a service, and all following invoices must be paid in full prior to their due date. Any overdue invoice will incur a late fee of 20% of the total invoice amount, with a minimum of US$1.50.

Account credit is automatically applied to open invoices. In order to manually apply your account credit on an existing unpaid invoice, please visit the invoice page in your Client Portal.

Occasionally, special promotions may be offered when ordering new services or account upgrades. Unless stated otherwise, promotional prices apply only to the initial payment cycle. Services renew at their regular rates, as shown on your invoice or in your product or service details in your Client Portal. Special pricing promotions cannot be applied to renewals unless stated otherwise. Stormy Hosting reserves the right to cancel any promotional pricing for any user that attempts to circumvent its intended use or limitations, at Stormy Hosting's sole discretion. All promotions are on the Promotions Policy Page.

11. Refund Policy

You can request a refund within the context of Stormy Hosting’s money-back guarantee by sending a written request through the WHC Client Portal.

Refunds can only be issued using the same payment method for payments made by Paypal. 

Refunds will generally be issued by Stormy Hosting within 7 days following the reception of your refund request, but some banks or credit card providers may incur additional delays before making those funds available to you again.

The following products and services are non-refundable: domain name registrations and renewals (including ID Protection services). Setup and installation fees are non-refundable.

If a domain name or other service that is non-refundable was offered at a discounted rate with the purchase of a hosting product, the original full value of said service will be withheld from any refunded amount.

Stormy Hosting will not issue refunds for the same type of product more than once per account.

Billing errors can be refunded for a maximum retroactive period of 3 months. In the unlikely event that a billing error comes to your attention, you are encouraged to contact Stormy Hosting as quickly as possible to correct the error.

12. Chargebacks and Reversals

In the event you issue a chargeback or reversal of charges with your banking institution you will be responsible for a $50.00 chargeback fee, plus the full amount of your original transaction, plus applicable taxes.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

    • Within 1 business day

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
