IF YOU ARE ENTERING IN TO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “USER”, “YOU” OR “YOUR” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY.

iWebz® is a retail provider of Web Infrastructure services. iWebz offers the Service via prepaid service/subscription plans at its website iwebzcloud.com.
Sandstorm (from sandstorm.io) is an open-source secure server-side software that functions as an app launching framework. The term “Sandstorm system” consists of the Sandstorm server-side software deployed in a ready-to-use state on a cloud service.
The Service is provided as a combination of hosting services (CPU, RAM, Disk Storage, Bandwidth, Public IP, Backups and Updates management) with the Sandstorm software on an “as-is” basis without any customization (or promise of customization) of the Sandstorm software functionality. All software options and documentation are available in the English language only. No training will be provided to the User or invited guest users to administer or use the software.
The relationship (subscription or otherwise) with Users of an iWebz service is governed via their User accounts. A subscription to a service plan is referred to as an Order.
Your Sandstorm system hosting order will be activated within the next working day after successful payment of the subscription fee. Your next billing date will be calculated from the date of Order activation.
The User account is activated once the User clicks a confirmation link in the Invitation to Sandstorm email. This email is sent out within the next working day after the User has paid the service plan’s subscription fee. Thereafter the User is responsible for all actions performed using their login.
User accounts are provided with an admin-level login to administer the Sandstorm system only in the case of subscription to a Sandstorm server plan.
2. Service/Subscription Plan Definition:
For the purpose of offering an online hosted service by iWebz that is accessible to the User from anywhere, the cloud hosting service is offered as a prepaid hosting subscription with maximum resource (CPU, RAM, Storage) allocation limits.
Our service is limited to hosting the software which includes managing the server to ensure minimum 99.5% availability, daily server snapshots, and providing customer support via a support ticket system during working hours. Customer support is limited to our hosting services and does not include software support. Customer support will only be provided to the User signed up with iWebz, and not to other guest users of the Sandstorm system invited by the User.
Sandstorm system software is community-supported and you can get in touch through this link. iWebz does not provide support with using any aspect of the software, or with issues faced with any core software or installed app functionality.
iWebz keeps historical server snapshots which include your data to restore your hosted Sandstorm system to a previous functional state in the event of a catastrophic system failure if your subscription plan is still active. However, we will not be able to extract your data from the snapshot. Data backups of any kind are not provided as part of the Service. You are responsible to keep backups of your own data.
iWebz reserves the right to remove, without notice, any or all data stored in any user account if the account has not paid the invoiced subscription fees 3 days beyond the due date, and/or violates iWebz’s User Conduct Policy (section #10).
iWebz reserves the right to refuse the Service to any user, for any reason, at our sole discretion. Any payments made in such cases (other than termination as per section #12) will be refunded if it is during subscription period validity.
