Supply of ODMHosting services

Company reserves the right to update and modify the Terms of Service at any time without notice. New features that may be added to the Service shall be subject to the Terms of Service.

ODMHosting is available only to persons who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You must complete the registration process and agree to our Terms and Conditions in order to use ODMHosting. All contact information you submit must be true, complete, and kept up to date.
As part of the registration process, you will identify an e-mail address and password for your ODMHosting account. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, passwords, and files, and for all users of your ODMHosting account. Company reserves the right to refuse service or to terminate accounts for any user, and to change eligibility requirements at any time, at its sole discretion.
Any violation of any of the Terms will result in the termination of your account.
Limitations in the ODMHosting services
Company uses a third party to host the application servers and to provide communication services. Company will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the third party undertakes to provide its services at or above industry standards. Accordingly, Company does not warrant that ODMHosting will be uninterrupted, error, bug or virus free or that the delivery or emails will be without delay.
It may be necessary to temporarily suspend ODMHosting from time to time to carry out maintenance of equipment; such suspensions will be limited and will take place as much as possible outside core working hours. However, ODMHosting may also be suspended (in whole or part) where Company or the third party host is obliged to comply with an order, instruction or request of government, a court or other competent administrative authority or an emergency service organisation.
The delivery of emails to recipients cannot be guaranteed and is dependent upon accurate and up to date email addresses, upon suitable internet availability and connectivity, on various anti spam and junk mail policies adopted by the recipients’ email service providers as well as restrictions regarding the content, wording and graphics of an email. Company makes no representations or warranties whatsoever about the speed or proportion of emails sent that will be delivered.
In addition, Company makes no guarantee that HTML pages will render properly in all subscribers’ browsers, due to the wide variety of HTML generation tools available. For best results Company recommends the use of browsers that adhere to W3C standards, but still does not guarantee a perfect rendering in all cases.
Content of messages
ODMHosting may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission or solicitation of any material that violates UK, US, state or other laws that may apply in your local area is prohibited. This may include material that is obscene, threatening, harassing, libellous, or in any way a violation of intellectual property laws or a third party’s intellectual property rights.
You may not use ODMHosting to distribute illegal content.
You may not use ODMHosting to store files that link to or display nudity, obscene content, online gambling related content, pharmaceutical related content, illegal software, viruses, or to distribute any other content that we deem inappropriate.
