When you use your account or permit someone else to use your account to purchase or otherwise acquire access to additional Internic.ca service(s) or to modify or cancel yourInternic.ca service(s) (even if we were not notified of such authorization), this Agreement covers any such service or actions.

You agree that each person listed in your account information as being associated with your account for any service(s) provided to you is your agent with full authority to act on your behalf for such services in accordance with the permissions granted, including but not limited to the authorization to terminate, transfer (where permitted by this Agreement), or to modify or purchase additional service(s).

You agree that Internic.ca may, in its sole discretion, renew a domain using any registrar owned by its parent, subsidiary and/or affiliated companies at any time. Moreover, Internic.ca may, in its sole discretion, transfer your account information, domains, hosting, additional products, billing history and/or all other products or services to its parent, subsidiary and/or affiliated companies at any time.

It is your responsibility to safeguard your password or passphrase. You accept full responsibility for modifications made to your service(s) using this password or passphrase
3. VARIOUS SERVICES. Unless otherwise stated, all promotions and special offers are for the first year only and products and/or services will renew at regular price. The terms of this Agreement are applicable to any and all of the Internic.ca's service(s) you have chosen, including any additional services you may choose in the future which may be offered by Internic.ca from time to time. NOTICE REGARDING BUNDLED SERVICES: If you purchase Internic.ca services that are sold together as a “bundled” package (e.g., you select a web site package that includes both a domain name and hosting services, as opposed to your purchasing such services separately) ("Bundled Services"), termination of any part of the service will result in termination of all services provided as part of the bundled package.
4. FEES AND PAYMENT. As consideration for the services you have selected, you agree to pay Internic.ca the applicable service(s) fees set forth on our Web site at the time of your selection. All fees are due immediately and are non-refundable. Internic.ca may take all remedies available to collect fees owed and may recover from you all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) incurred by Internic.ca to collect such fees. If you qualify, we may extend payment terms to you. You agree to recurring payments and a recurring billing schedule for your services. We reserve the right to change our prices and will post prices on our website.
5. TERM OF SERVICE. Unless otherwise specified, each Internic.ca service is for a one-year initial term and is automatically renewed thereafter for successive one-year terms.

Domain name renewals and recovery are subject to the registry's acceptance of your domain name registration.
Should you select to pay upfront for a multiple year term, each year on the anniversary of the registration Internic.ca will pay on your behalf to the registry the required registry fees until the term you have purchased expires or Internic.ca is no longer your registrar. Should the registry raise its fees, Internic.ca will inform you and collect the difference for the term remaining.

Hosting Migrations are provided as a courtesy service, and we do not make any guarantee regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete a Hosting Migration. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make us unable to assist you in the transfer of data from a third-party host.

9. Backups and Security.
9.1 You shall be solely responsible for undertaking measures to: (1) prevent any loss or damage to your website or server content; (2) maintain independent archival and backup copies of your website or server content; and (3) ensure the security, confidentiality and integrity of all your website or server content transmitted through or stored on our servers.

The Hosting Services are not intended to provide a PCI (Payment Card Industry) or HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant environment and therefore should not be used or considered as one. You shall not use the Service in any way, in our sole discretion, that shall impair the functioning or operation of our services or equipment. Specifically by way of example and not as a limitation, you shall not use the Hosting Services as: (1) a repository or instrument for placing or storing archived files; and/or (2) placing or storing material that can be downloaded through other websites. You acknowledge and agree that we have the right to carry out a forensic examination in the event of a compromise to your server or account.

11. Unlimited Disk Space/Bandwidth/Website Plans.
This means that we do not charge according to the amount of disk space or bandwidth you use, but we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms and Conditions and to only utilize disk space and bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website. However, in the event your service usage or content presents a risk to the stability, performance or uptime of our servers, data storage, networking or other infrastructure, you may be required to reduce usage, upgrade your current Plan or we may take action to restrict the resources your website is utilizing.
Schedule D: Terms and Conditions Applicable to the High Security Service
1. Internic.ca has introduced a "High Security" service to address issues of domain name security. The High Security service is provided to you as a courtesy and helps to prevent domains you have registered from being unintentionally transferred, deleted, or expired. Unless you inform Internic.ca that you do not want this service, you will be automatically enrolled for Internic.ca's High Security service. The High Security service includes "Registrar Lock" and "Auto-renewal", described below. Internic.ca may introduce additional security features in the future.
2. Registrar Lock
When High Security is enabled for a domain name, you are preventing registrars, other than Internic.ca, to transfer or modify your domain name. If you choose to transfer a domain to another registrar, you must log into your account and remove the lock prior to our receipt of the transfer request from the gaining registrar. This service is being provided as a convenience to you but in no way guarantees that a domain name will not be maliciously transferred to another registrar or registrant, due to technical and policy weaknesses in the worldwide domain name system or by Internic.ca's error. Internic.ca will, however, use commercially reasonable efforts in stopping any such transfer without your express consent. Please note that not all registries support the concept of a Registrar Lock in which case, High Security will not include a Registrar Lock.
3.1 When High Security is enabled for a domain, Internic.ca will attempt to renew the registration of a domain approximately 75 days prior to its expiry date. The renewal is for a one-year term and extends the existing registration period. For example, if the expiry date for your domain name is September 1, 2003, the new expiry date will be September 1, 2004. When High Security is enabled, you have authorized and consented to Internic.ca to automatically charge your credit card the then-current retail price for such one-year renewal. The automatic renewal service is provided as a convenience for you but in no way guarantees a desired renewal. It is your obligation to affirmatively renew any desired domain. In addition, Internic.ca has no obligation to attempt to renew your domain if your most recent credit card on file with us for your account is not accepted according to Internic.ca's payment processing systems. After your domains have been successfully renewed, you will receive a confirmation email. Note: The Auto-renewal process requires a valid credit card to be kept on file in your account. You will be notified if the Auto-renewal transaction is declined for any reason.
3.2 If you do not choose to have the High Security service as part of your Subscription Service, you must contact Customer Support by logging into your Internic.ca account at internic.ca and disabling the High Security feature on those domains you choose not to protect. Your failure to expressly opt out of the High Security service constitutes your authorization and consent for Internic.ca to enable Registrar-Lock and Auto-renewal, and attempt to automatically charge your credit card the then-current retail price for such renewal.
3.3 You are solely responsible for the credit card and billing contact information you provide to Internic.ca and you acknowledge and agree that you will promptly inform Internic.ca of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number).
3.4 You are solely responsible for ensuring the security of your domains. Internic.ca CORP. WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE HIGH SECURITY FEATURES, INCLUDING ATTEMPTED OR SUCCESSFUL TRANSFERS OF DOMAINS EVEN THOUGH THE HIGH SECURITY SERVICE IN ENABLED, OR RENEWAL OR ANY ATTEMPT TO RENEW DOMAINS AS DESCRIBED HEREIN, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY FAILURE OR ERRORS IN TRANSFERS, RENEWING OR ATTEMPTING TO RENEW THE DOMAINS. The foregoing limitation of liability is in addition to any other limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement.
3.5 You understand and agree that the release, indemnity and other obligations in favour of Internic.ca and certain other persons in Section 14 of the Main Terms and Conditions apply to your use of the High Security feature.

3. Term of Service. Unless otherwise specified, and subject to earlier termination as contemplated by Section 2 and Section 4, the Privacy service will initially be activated for a one-year term. At the end of such one-year term, and at the end of each subsequent one-year term thereafter, the Privacy service will automatically renew for consecutive one-year terms at then current rates, unless you request cancellation of the Privacy service by notifying Internic.ca at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then-current term. You acknowledge and agree that in connection with any automatic renewal Internic.ca will attempt to charge the credit card you have on file at the then current rates, and you waive any requirement to obtain your ongoing affirmative consent to any such automatic renewal. It is your responsibility to keep your credit card information current and accurate, including the expiration date. If Internic.ca is unable to collect renewal or other fees, you agree that Internic.ca may contact you, but is not obliged to do so, and you agree that Internic.ca may suspend or terminate the Privacy service as a result of inability to obtain payment. FEES WILL NOT BE PRO RATED OR OTHERWISE REFUNDED IF THE PRIVACY SERVICE IS CANCELLED OR OTHERWISE TERMINATED BEFORE THE END OF THE THEN-CURRENT TERM. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you understand that the Privacy services term may be different than the registration term of a domain which is associated with the Privacy services. If a domain expires and is deleted before the end of the term of the associated Privacy services, then the Privacy services associated with the domain will end when the domain is deleted and you understand that there will be no refund for any resulting unused portion of a Privacy services term.

8. Forwarded Information. You agree that Internic.ca may review communications sent to the email address associated with your Privacy service enabled domain. For communications received via certified or traceable courier mail (such as UPS or FedEx), or postal mail which does not appear to be unsolicited commercial mail, Internic.ca will make commercially reasonable efforts to either (a) forward such communication to you or (b) attempt to communicate to you a scanned copy of a page of the communication to ascertain whether you wish to receive the full communication.
