12.1 By selecting a service or upgrade, you agree to pay YakData the monthly or annual subscription fees indicated for that service or upgrade. Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for a service or upgrade and will cover the use of that service for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated.

12.2 Unless you notify YakData five days before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel a subscription or upgrade (see 12.7), your subscription and/or upgrade will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription/upgrade fee(s) (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you.

12.3 YakData will have no obligation to provide a refund of monthly or annual subscription fees, upgrades or other purchases. ALL UPGRADES AND SUBSCRIPTION PLAN PURCHASES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GRANTED FOR ANY PORTION OF YOUR INITIAL PERIOD OR RENEWAL PERIOD UPGRADES OR SUBSCRIPTION PLAN FEES.

12.4 Taxes. To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are exclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges now in force or enacted in the future (“Taxes”). You are responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we are obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the Fees you’ve paid or will pay, you are responsible for such Taxes, and we may collect payment for such Taxes.

12.5 Payment. If your payment fails, Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time, or we suspect a payment is fraudulent, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to Paid Services without notice to you. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services.

12.6 Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service five days before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase a YakData.com annual plan, you will be charged each year for the following 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to make sure you are checking your email (including any spam or other filters) in order to receive any reminder email we send to you in advance of renewal. The date for the automatic renewal is determined automatically based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed.

12.7 Cancelling Automatic Renewal. You can modify and/or cancel your Paid Services at support.brightrserver.com, open a ticket with details on what you wish to modify or cancel, including the effective date of your requested change and with confirmation that you understand all content will be deleted at termination/cancellation of said services, if requesting a cancellation of services. You must repeat this process for each subscription/upgrade you wish to cancel with a new ticket.

12.10 Buy Page Details and network IO overage fees.

* Unlimited apps are constrained by memory, CPU and storage limits per your plan and used by your data and apps. A high number of apps (hundreds, thousands or more) will likely impact your server performance. Unlimited hours are not throttled by a policy, but are constrained by the resources allocated. Our calculations estimate attainable hours in a month as approximately: Bronze, 8,640; Silver, 18,720; Gold, 39,600 and Platinum, 79,200. These estimates assume a typical app consumes 200 MB of memory resources at peak. Different app resource needs will affect your attainable app hours maximum accordingly. 

** Custom web domains are typically setup in 2-4 business days after your request is properly submitted to our support team. Time to complete deployment may be delayed by the speed of your organization properly configuring and conducting tests per instructions from our support team. Until this is completed, you will continue to have access via our standard domain/subdomain naming convention.

*** Virtual Private Cloud requests are typically setup within 2-4 business days after your request is properly submitted to our support team. Time to complete deployment may be delayed by the speed of your organization properly advising our support team and conducting tests per instructions from our support team. Until this is completed, you will continue to have access via normal internet access means. 

**** A terabyte (TB) of monthly bandwidth roughly equals 10 GB of daily data uploads plus approximately 250,000 app views, assuming a typical app view consumes 2.5 MB of bandwidth. Your achieved usage per view will vary. Bandwidth is based on the sum of incoming and outgoing internet traffic to your brightRserver. For example, 500 GB of outbound and 500 GB of inbound traffic in a month would count as 1 TB of of network IO.

13. YakData User Terms

13.1 Unlimited apps and CPU usage is permitted as possible by the resources allocated under by your plan. Network bandwidth input/output (I/O) is limited by the amount specified in your plan. Any overage of I/O resources will be billed using your subscription plan on file on a periodic basis in whole, one terabyte units. Any unused I/O amounts do not roll over on a month-to-month basis, each month is a reset of I/O usage and overage charges, as applicable. Our automated monitoring servers reserve the right to disable I/O access as needed if your payment for overages does not process in a timely manner. We will use your payment record on file for these ongoing charges, as they occur. For reference, a terabyte (TB) of monthly bandwidth roughly equals 10 GB of daily data uploads plus approximately 250,000 app views, assuming a typical app view consumes 2.5 MB of bandwidth. Your actual results per TB of IO will vary based on your unique usage of our systems.

In the case of overages greater than 1 TB without payment being processed in a timely manner, we can use remaining balances of your subscriptions/upgrades to offset payment of your I/O overages, in which case, payment can be made to pay the I/O balance and reinstate your full-term for your subscription/upgrade plan(s). If payment is not received for overages, your subscriptions/upgrades will be shortened accordingly.

13.2 Backups and app-driven e-mails require use of your own account credentials at Backblaze and Postmark respectively. The only exception are system e-mails (such as password reset emails) which use a YakData account at Postmark.

13.3 All users that you allow to access your account must accept these terms and conditions.

13.4 All YakData plans are hosted on virtual private servers (VPS’s) and as such offer high-performance on a standardized highly reliable high-performance cloud compute environment. As such, performance can vary by minute, hour, day, week, month or quarter or on other temporal bases that are subject to fluctuation.  All CPU and Memory targets for each subscription plan is a subset of the resources actually available on each customer VPS/brightRserver system. A subset of all allocated resources are consumed by overhead processes that protect and enable access to your system.

13.5 You explicitly grant YakData the right to access your system, system programs and data sources as required to provide support, diagnose issues with your system or YakData applications in general, perform routine maintenance and backups (whether on your behalf or as part of system reliability maintenance) or for other reasons that YakData deems reasonable to maintain our infrastructure or comply with laws, law enforcement, IP enforcement or other business reasons. Our selected third-party vendors have similar access requirements and permissions.

13.6 YakData reserves the right to refuse to provide You with any Service for any reason.
