In the course of managing and optimising stores, Freewebstore monitors the activity of sites to develop better selling techniques for our clients. This information resides on our servers and is never passed on to a third party, and never used for marketing purposes. This information is held purely to provide statistical analysis and trace errors, in an effort to benefit our clients.

20. Refund Policy

Pro-rata refunds can be requested within 5 days of the payment date for monthly subscriptions and within 28 days of the payment date for annual subscriptions. All refunds are subject to a 5 GBP, 6 EUR or 8 USD administration fee. Any days you have already used from the last payment date will also be taken from the total refund amount. If you have claimed a domain name as part of your hosting package, this administration fee will be raised to 15 GBP, 18 EUR or 25 USD.

21. Inactivity

Freewebstore reserves the right to terminate without notice inactive stores. For the purposes of this operation, inactive means that we receive complaints about undelivered purchases or a failure to login to a store within a length of time determined by Freewebstore.

22. Domain Names

Free domain names provided by Freewebstore to Professional or Power Seller users are limited to the following suffixes: .com .co.uk .net .org .biz .info .name .be .co.in .in .eu .me

If you wish to take your free domain name with you when you leave our platform then there will be a one off administration fee of 20 GBP, 24 EUR or 30 USD to release the domain name into your control.

The Freewebstore Control Panel, primarily located at https://admin.freewebstore.org/, and available webstore designs are designed for use in Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 7 and up), Mozilla FireFox and Google Chrome. Support for other browsers is not necessarily provided.

25. Updates

From time to time, Freewebstore's servers must be disabled for updates - i.e. important security updates or software upgrades. Where possible, notice will be given of this down-time and store fronts will be kept open. An example of an update which will receive no notice is a critical security update which closes a loophole detrimental to our shoppers' security or experience.

26. Support and Contact Details

The UK registered trading address is Slater Terrace, Sandygate, On The Banks, Burnley, Lancashire, United Kingdom, BB11 1BU.

27. Fair Usage

In view of the nature of service we offer we ask that the user undertakes to use the service in accordance with the usual standards of the profession.

Reasonable and fair use includes, but not exclusively, a moderate and fair use of bandwidth and storage space. This includes the server resources made available within the platform's framework.

For technical reasons users are not allowed to exceed 20gb of traffic each month and the database size will not exceed 300mb. We also ask that the user does not exceed 3gb of storage of disk space or exceed 30 simultaneous Mysql connections.

An additional charge to a subscription may be requested if these limits are exceeded. The charge will be at the discretion of Freewebstore.

Notice:

Freewebstore reserves the right to terminate sites without prior notice should the site be selling or promoting anything considered by Freewebstore unsavoury or unsuitable. Complaints against a site should be directed to our support department which can be reached by emailing support@freewebstore.org. Freewebstore will openly work with law enforcement agencies to help with any investigations.

Furthermore, visitors are referred to PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy. We will co-operate fully with PayPal to deal with Freewebstore sites that utilize PayPal as a payment platform, and that fail to comply to these standards. Sites that are found in breach of these terms will be terminated without notice. As more Payment Providers are added to the bank of companies Freewebstore uses, their terms of use become incorporated into our terms of use, and site owners must comply with the terms of use of their merchant provider. It is the sole responsibility of the client to ensure their store meets their merchant provider's terms and usage policies. Should a store use an alternate payment provider, the store owner (defined as any person in control of the credentials to log in to that store's control panel) must ensure that all goods sold fit in with their chosen payment provider's (or providers') terms of use. Freewebstore operates a policy of ethical use determined by the staff at the Freewebstore offices. Stores deemed by Freewebstore to be unsuitable in any respect may be closed without notice.

21. Domain Names

Free domain names provided by Freewebstore to Professional or Power Seller users are limited to the following suffixes: .com .co.uk .net .org .biz .info .name .be .co.in .in .eu .me

If you wish to take your free domain name with you when you leave our platform then there will be a one off administration fee of 20 GBP, 24 EUR or 30 USD to release the domain name into your control.

22. Deleted Product Retrieval Policy

In most instances Freewebstore can retrieve deleted products for a one off fee of 50 GBP, 70 EUR or 75 USD.

23. Requirements

The Freewebstore Control Panel, primarily located at https://admin.freewebstore.org/, and available webstore designs are designed for use in Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 7 and up), Mozilla FireFox and Google Chrome. Support for other browsers is not necessarily provided.

24. Updates

From time to time, Freewebstore's servers must be disabled for updates - i.e. important security updates or software upgrades. Where possible, notice will be given of this down-time and store fronts will be kept open. An example of an update which will receive no notice is a critical security update which closes a loophole detrimental to our shoppers' security or experience.

25. Support and Contact Details

All support is strictly handled online via your Freewebstore control panel or by emailing support@freewebstore.org directly. The UK registered trading address is Slater Terrace, Sandygate, On The Banks, Burnley, Lancashire, United Kingdom, BB11 1BU. The North American office is located at 100 Pine Street, Suite 1250, San Francisco, CA 94111. For Corporate enquiries please call +44(0)8450522450.

26. Fair Usage

In view of the nature of service we offer we ask that the user undertakes to use the service in accordance with the usual standards of the profession.

Reasonable and fair use includes, but not exclusively, a moderate and fair use of bandwidth and storage space. This includes the server resources made available within the platform's framework.

For technical reasons users are not allowed to exceed 20gb of traffic each month and the database size will not exceed 300mb. We also ask that the user does not exceed 3gb of storage of disk space or exceed 30 simultaneous Mysql connections.

An additional charge to a subscription may be requested if these limits are exceeded. The charge will be at the discretion of Freewebstore.

Notice:

Freewebstore reserves the right to terminate sites without prior notice should the site be selling or promoting anything considered by Freewebstore unsavoury or unsuitable. Complaints against a site should be directed to our support department which can be reached by emailing support@freewebstore.org. Freewebstore will openly work with law enforcement agencies to help with any investigations.

Furthermore, visitors are referred to PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy. We will co-operate fully with PayPal to deal with Freewebstore sites that utilize PayPal as a payment platform, and that fail to comply to these standards. Sites that are found in breach of these terms will be terminated without notice. As more Payment Providers are added to the bank of companies Freewebstore uses, their terms of use become incorporated into our terms of use, and site owners must comply with the terms of use of their merchant provider. It is the sole responsibility of the client to ensure their store meets their merchant provider's terms and usage policies. Should a store use an alternate payment provider, the store owner (defined as any person in control of the credentials to log in to that store's control panel) must ensure that all goods sold fit in with their chosen payment provider's (or providers') terms of use. Freewebstore operates a policy of ethical use determined by the staff at the Freewebstore offices. Stores deemed by Freewebstore to be unsuitable in any respect may be closed without notice.
