At any time, INSIGHT may require you to pay a deposit or increase an existing deposit as a condition of providing Services. You authorize INSIGHT to investigate your credit history at any time and to share credit information about you with credit reporting agencies. Payment of all charges is due within three (3) days after the date of invoice, in U.S. currency. Invoices are issued seven (7) days prior to subscription renewal dates (if you bill on the 15th of the month, an invoice is generated on the 8th of the month and must be paid in full by the 15th of the month). Past due accounts that receive payments will have those payments applied to the oldest past due invoices first. Failure to pay any invoice may place the account into default, and could lead to suspension of all services until the account is paid and current. You will be responsible for reimbursing INSIGHT for all costs (including reasonable attorney fees) associated with collecting delinquent or dishonored payments. Accounts not paid in full within three (3) days of the invoice due date may be suspended, or terminated and a reconnection late fee of THIRTY FIVE DOLLARS ($35) may be applied for each service in the overdue invoice. Accounts not paid in full within fourteen (14) days of the invoice due date may be terminated and any past due invoices turned over to our collections service with an additional collections fee of SEVENTY NINE DOLLARS ($79) will be applied in addition to any past due balance and/or late fees. If you dispute charges on your bill, you must notify INSIGHT in writing of the dispute within sixty days of the date on the affected bill, or else you waive the dispute. You hereby agree to being billed for your service(s) on an automatic renewal basis and your service(s) will continue to be billed until cancelled by you pursuant to the terms of these Terms of Service. All payment periods are for the full period. Example: If you pay for a service on a monthly basis, the service shall remain active (barring it being suspended or terminated pursuant to other terms within these Terms of Service) for the full month and no prorated amount shall be refunded should you decide to cancel the service prior to the end of the billing period. If you pay for a service annually, the service will remain active (barring it being suspended or terminated pursuant to other terms within these Terms of Service) for the full period even if you decide to cancel said service prior to the end of the billing period. ONLY ON ANNUAL CONTRACTS: Should you cancel an annual contract prior to the end of the full term, prorated refunds may be granted and shall be calculated based upon converting the service back to the normal monthly rate and applying a $175.00 (one hundred seventy five dollar) early termination fee.

Any Equipment and/or personal property of Customer not removed within thirty (30) days after the date of expiration or termination of the applicable Service Order will, at Company's option, conclusively be deemed to have been abandoned by Customer.

You are responsible for payment of any and all state, federal, or international surcharges.
BANDWIDTH ALLOTMENTINSIGHT offers multiple flexible bandwidth packages on all web hosting and service plans. Hosting and Service Plans with Un-Metered Bandwidth provides you with a network port locked at a specific Un-Metered Bandwidth speed (for example, Un-Metered 10 Mbps means your server has a 10 Mbps port) and you can use that network port during the entire billing period without any bandwidth over-usage fees. Hosting and Service Plans with Total Monthly Bandwidth allotment plans (such as 1000 GB per month) allow you to push traffic at very high speeds (Up to 100 Mbit or higher, depending on your server's port speed) over our Premium Network. The bandwidth is calculated 50/50 between inbound and outbound usage. For example, on a 1000 GB plan, your hosting plan can transmit up to a total of 500 GB of data per month and receive up to 500 GB of data per month. Usage levels over your included bandwidth are billed monthly at the rate of $0.50 per GB. If you exceed or are about to exceed your monthly allotted bandwidth during any billing cycle, we reserve the right to limit network access, bill for estimated overage in advance, or suspend service until payment for the bandwidth overage is completed.
EXCESSIVE RESOURCE USAGE POLICYINSIGHT provides this section to detail additional policies applicable for accounts on any standard web hosting plan (also known as 'shared', 'ultimate' and 'reseller' plans). Accounts many not use more than 10 % of the server's CPU, Disk, Memory or web port connections. Accounts may not run daemons or back ground tasks. Accounts may store at most 1 (one) backup of their account in the server's disk space. Accounts may not use the server disk space for storage of backups, file sharing, file storage, or any type of content that is not accessible on the web site you are hosting. INSIGHT will make reasonable efforts where possible to contact the account holder to offer a paid upgrade to Virtual or Dedicated Server hosting when an account exceeds the resource usage policy limits. If the resource usage limits are exceeded INSIGHT may, without prior notice or warning, limit access, suspend or terminate the account at INSIGHT's sole discretion.

CANCELLATION or NON-RENEWALTo cancel or elect not to renew any product or service, the customer must submit a cancellation request via the INSIGHT Client Area. Cancellation requests must be submitted at least seven (7) calendar days prior to expiration of the current renewal term. To insure the privacy and security of both the customer and INSIGHT, cancellation must be completed via the INSIGHT Client Care Center only. No refunds, partial or otherwise, will be issued (excluding our 30 day money back guarantee, if applicable) for any unused portion of any billing cycle or late cancellations. For special promotions, a 50% off promotion, for example, INSIGHT applies those funds at the full value rate to whichever period the funds are covering at the service's normal rate, and the remaining time is provided at no charge. More specifically - if you purchase a service with a semi-annual billing period at 50% off, INSIGHT applies the full rate to the first three months of service, and the ensuing 3 months of the 6 month term are provided at no charge. As such, any cancellations placed during the time frame in which service is being provided at no charge shall be ineligible for a refund. Furthermore, requests for refunds will only be considered if the cancellation request is for an immediate cancellation. Also, understand that you must have all your data backed-up and off the INSIGHT Network, because immediate cancellations may lead to the immediate and irrecoverable loss of any and all data associated with your service. The 30-day money-back guarantee may only be taken advantage of once by any one customer. Additionally, if you order 3 non-identical services on the same day and cancel all 3 within the 30-day money-back guarantee period, only one of the services will be refunded. Cancellations requests MUST be made seven (7) or more days prior to expiration of the current billing cycle. Cancellations made within the last seven (7) days of the current billing cycle and marked "Cancel at end of billing period" will not be terminated until the end of following billing cycle and the invoice will be due and processed. Cancellations made within the last seven (7) days of the billing cycle and marked "Immediate cancel" will be terminated by midnight of the day of the cancellation request, and the current invoice will still be due and processed per our Terms of Service. No refunds will be given on customized services/orders, associated setup fees and/or services/orders with explicitly requested and provided IP diversity, unless specified at the time of purchase. Any orders that have utilized a license for which INSIGHT has paid fees to a third party - such as (but not limited to) Microsoft Licenses, WHMCS Licenses, and cPanel Licenses - are non-refundable. Payments for domain names, for which INSIGHT pays to a registrar, are also non-refundable.
