This Email Service Agreement ("Agreement") governs your use of all email services and products (collectively referred to as "Service"), both personal and corporate, provided by EagleQuest, Inc.
This Agreement is between EagleQuest, Inc. (EagleQuest) and you as a subscriber to email services provided by EagleQuest. By establishing an account with EagleQuest, or by using the Service, you agree to be bound by this Agreement and to use the Service in compliance with the terms of this Agreement and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations.
The effective date of this Agreement is the date on which you subscribed to the Service or the first date that you started using the Service, whichever comes first. This agreement terminates upon termination of your Service and cancellation of your account.
To be a subscriber of EagleQuest you acknowledge that you are 18 years of age or older and that you have the legal authority to enter into this Agreement. If you are purchasing services on behalf of a company, corporation, organization, or other legal entity other than an individual, you acknowledge and represent that you have the legal authority to make such purchases on behalf of said entity and that you may enter the entity into a binding legal agreement. You represent that all contact, billing, or other information provided to EagleQuest is accurate and complete and that you will contact EagleQuest with updates to such information should any of it change. EagleQuest reserves the right to verify the accuracy of the information you provide to us in connection with your subscription and your account and you consent to such verification.
As a subscriber you will receive usernames and passwords and other information that enable you to access and use the Service. You agree to keep such information private and secure and to not share such information with anyone who is not authorized on your behalf to use the Service in your name. You are responsible for use of the Service by any person who uses your usernames and passwords to access the Service, whether or not you authorize such a person to do so. If you discover that your account is being used by an unauthorized person or if your usernames and passwords become lost, stolen, or compromised, you agree to contact EagleQuest immediately and to change your passwords as soon as possible to prevent unauthorized use of the Service.
The ability to use the Service requires that you have access to the Internet of some kind, with the ability to establish connections with EagleQuest's network and servers, as well as the networks and servers of companies that EagleQuest may use to provide the Service. You understand and agree that EagleQuest is not providing the Internet Access required to use the Service. You are responsible for providing your own Internet Access as well as for any costs involved in obtaining access to the Internet to use our Service. You also acknowledge that certain network administrators of Internet Service Providers and/or private corporate networks will routinely use firewalls and/or network port blocking to secure their networks that may or may not interfere with your ability to use the Service from those networks, and that such blocking is beyond our control. You agree that it is your responsibility to obtain the appropriate Internet access required to use the Service and that the inability to access the Service due to port blocking or firewalls is not a valid reason for failure to pay for the Service.
You acknowledge that access to the Service is not encrypted and that data transmitted to and from our servers may be intercepted by man-in-the-middle attacks or network sniffers that have physical access to the network between your computer(s) and our servers, just as any normally non-encrypted internet traffic may be intercepted.
EagleQuest reserves the right to change any of the features or capabilities of the Service at any time with or without notice to you.
EagleQuest reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason or for no reason.
You acknowledge and agree that the Service is provided on an AS-IS, AS-AVAILABLE basis and that there are no guarantees with regard to availability of the service, downtime, your ability to use the service, or your ability to use the service for a particular purpose. You understand that outages and downtime due occur from time to time and that we will do our best to minimize such outages and restore service as fast as possible. There is no refund or credit for downtime or the inability to use the service for any length of time.
Use of the Service via POP3 or IMAP requires client-side software on your computer or device. You are responsible for providing this software at your own cost. Use of our webmail system requires a compatible web browser to be installed on your computer or other device. You are responsible for providing this software at your own cost. We do not provide technical support for client side email software or for web browser software. We are not responsible for any problems associated with your choice of software, including but not limited to, any security breaches, inability to use the Service, loss of data, stolen personal information, or cost of outside technical assistance. We recommend that you always apply all security patches as soon as they come out for your software, including the operating system, and that you always keep frequent offline backups of important data and information. We are not responsible for supplying security updates or patches or for helping you back up your data or information.
If you subscribe to the Service on a month to month basis, you will be billed the current monthly fee for your level of service. This fee is billed by calendar month, in advance, and is due by the close of business on the last business day of the calendar month, or at the time that we make our first attempt to charge your credit card if you use our automated billing program.
If you subscribe to the Service on a yearly basis, you will be billed the current yearly fee for your level of service. This fee is billed in advance, and is based on the 12 month period immediately following the expiration of your previous billing cycle, or your date of signup for new accounts. If you prepay for one year of service in advance and you cancel before the end of that year, we will refund unused whole months at the appropriate month to month rate for that level of service, after subtracting any discounts or incentives that were used in providing the yearly rate. If there is no month to month plan for your level of service, then the yearly fees are non-refundable and are never prorated.
Domain Name Registration and/or Renewal fees are non-refundable.
All payments must be made in US Dollars.
If you pay automatically by credit card, we will charge your credit card on file in advance for the next billing cycle. You must notify us before the end of your current billing cycle to avoid being charged for another period. If your credit card is declined, we may, at our discretion, try up to 3 additional attempts to charge the card on file. If we cannot obtain payment from the card on file we will contact you to obtain alternative payment information. If you fail to provide an alternative method of payment or if subsequent attempts to charge your credit cards or debit cards fail, we may terminate your accounts immediately and shut of all services. Termination of the account does not absolve you from paying for any past due charges or any fees that may have been incurred. If you credit card is expiring, please notify us with updated payment information as soon as possible. If your card expires before we receive updated information, we will be unable to bill you and your account may go into default. If your account remains in default for more than 3 days, we may, at our sole discretion, terminate your account and shut off all services.
EagleQuest is not responsible for any fees resulting from charges billed by EagleQuest including, but not limited to, overdrawn account fees or over the credit limit fees.
If payment by check has been accepted by EagleQuest, then we must receive your payment before the start of your next billing cycle (or within 10 days of your first billing cycle for new accounts) to avoid service interruption. EagleQuest may charge extra fees for payment by check if it is not normally allowed for your level of service. EagleQuest will charge a fee for returned checks or returned bank drafts from your financial institution.
All charges are considered valid unless disputed in writing within 30 days of the billing date and mailed to:

Adjustments will not be made for charges that are disputed more than 30 days after the billing date.
EagleQuest reserves the right to change all prices and fees and institute new fees associated with your Service upon email notice at least 30 days in advance of the effective date of such new pricing or fees to the contact email address associated with your account. Such pricing changes or fees will apply to your next billing cycle, should you choose to maintain your service with us.
