SiteWizard is a Nominet accredited registrar and provide domain name registration services. Domain names will be registered with the IPS Tag ANET and are bound by Nominet’s terms and conditions which can be found at http://www.nominet.uk/go/terms.

Member will be listed as the registrant and administrative contact in connection with Member’s domain name. Member hereby authorizes SiteWizard to list itself as the billing contact, technical contact and name servers in connection with Member’s domain name and to take any actions SiteWizard deems appropriate in those capacities. However, upon termination of the Service, SiteWizard will immediately cease acting in those capacities including switching registrars. After such time, SiteWizard will not be responsible to forward any notices, emails or other correspondence to Member or to take any other actions in connection with Member’s domain name. Member will be solely responsible for all ongoing fees, as well as removing SiteWizard as the billing, technical contact and name servers in connection with Member’s domain name. An outgoing transfer fee of £10 (plus value added tax at prevailing rate) will be applicable to domains being transferred from SiteWizard.
Member hereby releases SiteWizard (and its officers, directors, agents, and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any connected with email disputes. By using email services, Member agrees to the terms and conditions contained in the “Acceptable Use Policy” and “Mass Mailing Policy” provided below:
30. Acceptable Use Policy Definitions
“User” refers to the person or business entity that has contracted with SiteWizard for e-mail services.
“End User” refers to the person, persons, or entity using a specific account (designated by a unique e-mail address) within a domain controlled by User and operated by SiteWizard.
31. Unsolicited Bulk E-mail
Any User who sends unsolicited advertisements or solicitations, commercial or otherwise, may have its account disabled and be disallowed further service. The User is responsible for ensuring that its End Users use the email services obtained from SiteWizard in an appropriate manner. Therefore, the User must take steps to manage the use of the services obtained in such a way that network abuse is minimized. The User must also make contact information publicly available, and must respond in a timely manner to any complaints. SiteWizard shall consider any complaints regarding the User’s End Users to apply to the User. In extreme cases, SiteWizard operations personnel have the option to immediately disable any User account in order to forestall further abuse or damage to e-mail systems. Should this occur, the User shall be notified as soon as possible.
Unsolicited advertisements or solicitations sent from other networks which reference e-mail accounts hosted at SiteWizard shall be treated as if they originated from the account referenced, unless there is sufficient reason given for SiteWizard operations staff to believe that the message truly originated with some unrelated party. Likewise, postings made to newsgroups or other online forums which reference e-mail accounts hosted at SiteWizard, and are deemed to be inappropriate according to the local ethical standards of that forum, may be treated in the same manner as unsolicited bulk e-mail above.
32. Filtering of Incoming E-mail
As owner of the equipment and other resources utilized to provide services, SiteWizard has the legal right to block electronic communications from other entities on the Internet. Users should be aware that such blocking or filtering might take place if deemed necessary by designated members of the SiteWizard operations staff (or a third party chosen by SiteWizard and made known to the User). Whenever possible, the party being blocked shall be made aware of such action before it occurs.
33. Illegal Activities
Email services offered may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of the laws of England and Wales or International Law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute. SiteWizard reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement and other legal authorities in investigating claims of illegal activity.
34. Right to Damages
SiteWizard consider most instances of unsolicited bulk e-mail to be a theft of services and reserve the right to prosecute originators of same in a court of law. SiteWizard reserve the right to collect damages (software, hardware, and man hours) if any harm is done to SiteWizard network or equipment that requires repair or reconfiguration of any kind. If deemed appropriate by SiteWizard User will be billed not less than £500 per individual complaint received by SiteWizard staff. In addition, SiteWizard reserve the right to collect punitive damages in recompense for any perceived loss of brand reputation.
Nothing contained in this Section 34 shall be construed to limit action SiteWizard may take or remedies available to SiteWizard in any way with respect to any of the described conduct. SiteWizard reserves the right to take any additional actions SiteWizard considers appropriate with respect to such conduct, including without limitation taking action to recover costs and expenses of identifying offenders and removing them from SiteWizard’s network or systems, and levying cancellation charges to cover costs in the event of disconnection for the causes outlined in this Agreement. In addition, SiteWizard reserve at all times all rights and remedies available to SiteWizard with respect to such conduct at law or in equity. Non-enforcement of any term or condition herein does not constitute consent or waiver, and SiteWizard reserve the right to enforce such term or condition at its sole discretion.
35. Mass Mailing Policy
The following are the guidelines for all mass mailings by User, or a third party contracted on behalf of User to send mass mailings to End Users.
Policy objectives: The goals of this mass mailing policy include, but are not limited to, the following issues: controlling mailing rates that stress systems; eliminating service degradations; mitigating the thousands of bounce messages in mail queues that delay mail delivery; mitigating invalid return address information; and eliminating mass mailings during peak business hours.
36. Mass Mailing Definitions
“Opt-in” mailings are those which are to more than 250 End Users by either Users or their third party partner to any group of End Users. Opt-in means that the End User has signed up for mailings voluntarily. “Opt-in” implies that the mailing is not SPAM (defined below).
“SPAM” is defined as unsolicited bulk email that includes advertisements or solicitations, commercial or otherwise, regardless of content. Without exception, SiteWizard prohibits the practice of mass-mailing unwanted e-mail solicitations of any type, regardless of content, and will take action to prevent this practice.
37. Mass Mailing Requirements

Delivery of mass mailings: (i.e. mass mailing sent by a domain hosted or not hosted by SiteWizard to domains hosted by SiteWizard) all mass mailings must be delivered through SiteWizard or its suppliers’ inbound MX machines. All mass mailings sent through SiteWizard or its suppliers’ SMTP servers will not be delivered.
Allowable send times: mass mailings will be started and completed between 9pm and 4am GMT.

Blocking of the mailing currently causing the problems/complaints.

If no “abuse contact” is provided to SiteWizard, SiteWizard reserves the right to block mailings without notifying User as necessary.
SiteWizard reserves the right to suspend or terminate accounts for breaches of SiteWizard’s Mass Mailing Policy.
39. Merchant Account/Payment Processor for the SiteWizard Storefront

In order to establish a payment gateway and the necessary merchant account for Member to process credit cards, Member must agree to the terms and conditions. Member understands that by accepting the Merchant’s terms and conditions, Member is creating a separate contractual relationship between Member and the Merchant service provider and that Member, and not SiteWizard, is responsible for all liability, and obligations in connection with that relationship. SiteWizard is not responsible for the actions or inaction of the Merchant service provider or the unavailability or malfunction of their network or services. SiteWizard is not a party to, and shall not be involved in or responsible for, transactions, agreements, and/or disputes between Member and the Merchant Service Provider. In the event of a Dispute, Member hereby releases SiteWizard (and its officers, directors, agents, and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any connected with such disputes.
