1. Fees

As consideration for the services purchased by You and provided to You by JNS Internet, You agree to pay JNS Internet a monthly fee. Your monthly billing date will be determined based on the day of the month You establish Your Web Hosting relationship with JNS Internet unless that date falls after the 28th of the month in which case Your billing date will be the 28th of each month. Payment is to be made by You providing either a valid credit card, an online or offline check. Personal checks and money orders may only be used only to fund your account on yearly contracts. All personal checks will be delayed fourteen (14) days until the money is credited, which may delay Your usage of the product or service, and any check that is returned by your financial institution will result in a $30 returned check fee. If You purchase an automatically renewing service or product by personal check, it is Your responsibility to make payment arrangements for each renewal payment. Payments are non-refundable. If for any reason JNS Internet is unable to charge your Payment Method, You agree that JNS Internet may pursue all available remedies in order to obtain payment.

In the event that You exceed the scope of the Services as set forth in Your Agreement (for example, available bandwidth, CPU or disk utilization space), You shall pay JNS Internet for such additional services not within the scope of Your Agreement as specified. JNS Internet reserves the right to charge a reasonable service fee for administrative tasks outside the scope of its regular services. These include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that cannot be handled over email but require personal service, and disputes that require legal services. These charges will be billed to the Payment Method we have on file for You. You may change your Payment Method at any time by logging into your Account Manager.
