1. This Agreement shall be for an "Initial Term" of thirty (30) days for all services. Customer agrees to all terms and
conditions of services provided by HostWindsor, beginning upon receipt by fax, e-mail, or express mail.
2. All charges for Services (including installation and professional support fees) are non-refundable and must be paid in
advance according to the then current price applicable to the Services. If customer chooses to pay by credit card upon
registering for Hosting services, customer thereby authorizes HostWindsor to charge your credit or debit card to pay for
any charges that may apply to your account. Customer agrees that HostWindsor may accumulate any supplemental charges, as
described in the Order Form, incurred by you in your use of the Services ("Supplemental Charges") until such charges exceed
$20 and then charge your card. Customer must notify HostWindsor of any changes to your card account (including, without
limitation, applicable account number or cancellation or expiration of the account), your billing address, or any
information that may prohibit Hostwindsor from charging your account.
HostWindsor may also send periodic invoices to customer for any applicable Supplemental Charges associated with your use of
the Services. Customer agrees to pay to HostWindsor the amount indicated in each invoice by the due date reflected on the
invoice. If customer fails to pay any fees and taxes within three (3) days from applicable due date for credit card or
invoice payments, a late payment fee of $10.00 become payable by you to HostWindsor. In addition, customer's failure to
fully pay all fees and taxes within five (5) days after the applicable due date will be deemed a material breach of this
Agreement, justifying HostWindsor suspension of its performance of the Services and/or termination of this Agreement.
Customer is responsible for any fees associated with reinstated of Services. Any such termination would not relieve customer
from paying past due fees plus interest. In the event of collection enforcement, customer will be liable for any costs
associated with such collection, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs and collection
3. This Agreement will be automatically renewed (the "Renewal Term") at the end of the Initial Term for the same period as

the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable.

be renewed automatically for identical successive periods. Any changes made to the customer's package shall be billed

of the order is sent to the customer. We may refuse to accept any order, or delay acceptance awaiting completion of

HostWindsor agrees to provide the customer with reasonable notice by E-mail or fax of any intent to delay or decline the
acceptance of any order.

with the customers method of payment. This includes expired credit cards, declined credit cards, inactive credit cards, and
