1. Subscription & Fees
You must register with one of the Sites to use the Services, and you agree to keep your registration information accurate, complete and up-to-date as long as you continue to use the Services. Idealocity sometimes offers a free plan with limited functionality (hereinafter referred to as “Trial Plan”), and offers various monthly-fee plans (hereinafter referred to as “Paid Plans”).
If you sign-up for one of our Paid Plans, you agree to pay the monthly subscription and any variable usage-based fees, if any, for the account type you have selected and agree to any applicable restrictions and quotas. If you use PayPal or a credit card for payment, you authorize Idealocity to automatically renew your monthly subscription and charge the then-current renewal fees to the PayPal account or credit card associated with your account. You may cancel your subscription prior to the next billing date to avoid future charges. Service will continue until the end of the current billing period, but no Service fees will be refunded for the current billing period. If you exceed any quota allocated to your account, such as the maximum file size allowed for backups, you will be notified via email and you must upgrade immediately to another type of account with a higher quota. Idealocity may cancel your subscription if you fail to upgrade within 7 days of being notified that you have exceeded your allowed quota.
If you have signed up for a Paid Plan, any discounts agreed upon with your order will be honored throughout the period specified by your plan. If the account owner fails to pay for services within five days of the payment due date or discontinues a Paid Plan, any and all discounts applied to the user’s account in past payments will not be applied to future payments.
Prices of all subscriptions and products, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us.
We can only remove Malware and viruses from your website for FREE after you have been a paid member for at least 24 hours. During the first 24 hour period of being a member, if your site is infected, we can clean your site for a one time fee of $99. It is required that we clean your site before we can begin to provide you with any of our other services including nightly backups and Uptime monitoring. If your site is infected with Malware within the first 24 hours of sign up, we will contact you via email with more information on how to pay for the Malware cleanup. When we contact you, you will have the option to pay for the Malware cleanup or you can cancel your membership and we will refund your membership payment. After you pay for the one-time Malware cleanup, the Malware will be removed by the end of the next Business day ( business days are Monday thru Friday USA EST). We can not guarantee that we can remove the Malware or virus from your site. If for some reason we can not clean your site, we will refund you both the one-time Malware cleanup fee and we will also refund you the membership fee.
We reserve the right to refuse Services or cancel your subscription and revoke your membership access with a prorated refund for any reason we deem appropriate. You may not resell, share, or publish subscription credentials or access.
2. Account Setup and Start of Services
You account will be setup and the services you have subscribed to will begin after we have confirmed that you have provided us with correct and complete information about your WordPress website, included but not limited to a WordPress administrator username and password for your website, and provided any other information that we may request via email. After receiving all required information from you, your website will start getting backed up on the following business day between 12 AM EST and 1 AM EST. After receiving all required information from you, you will start receiving alerts and reports via email (as provided by the specific plan that you signed up for) within 7 business days. Business days are Monday-Friday EST USA time, not including USA national holidays.
3. Cancellations and Refunds
If you cancel your plan after 30 days, you will continue to receive the services provided by your plan until the end of your current monthly billing cycle. If you cancel your plan within the first 30 days and you want to receive a refund, all you need to do is send an email requesting the refund to our support team and we will refund you (with no questions asked) the payment that you made when you signed up. Idealocity will issue all other refunds on a case-by-case basis. If you request a refund before the end of your subscription (not within the first 30 days) due to Idealocity’s failure to provide any of the Services of your selected Paid Plan, a prorated refund may be issued based upon the number of unused days of service that the Services were used for that monthly period. Refunds will not be issued for Services already provided. For annual subscriptions, refunds are prorated based upon the number of unused months of the Services. If your Paid Plan is in violation of this Agreement, refunds will not be issued. We are so confident that you will love our service and support so much that we offer this money back guarantee.

10. Limitations to Size and Number of Daily Data Backups
We backup your WordPress website each night between 12 AM EST and 1 AM EST unless you send us an email requesting for your backups to be done at a different time. We only backup your WordPress Files, WordPress directories, and the WordPress Database. We do not backup files or directories that are not part of the WordPress installation. We store the number of backup files allowed according to your plan. We store the backup files in Amazon S3 secure storage services servers so that your data is safe. The total space consumed by your website’s WordPress files and database file must be less than the maximum allowed by your subscription plan as specified in our plans and pricing page. If your website’s backup exceeds the amount allowed by your plan, then you must upgrade to a higher plan. A typical WordPress business Website is less than 1 GB. If your website is bigger than 1GB, which is the maximum allowed by our professional plan, we will be glad to accommodate your business needs by charging you an additional fee for each extra 1 GB of data. We will inform you of that fee at the time that you exceed the 1 GB and you will not be charged for the first backup exceeding the 1 GB.
11. Limitations to Restoration of Data and Copies of Data
Only subscribers to paid plans can request to restore their website data. The maximum number of restores per month is determined by your plan. You can request to restore your website from any of the existing backups created by our Services during the last x days as allowed by your plan. For example, if you have a plan that allows for 14 days of backup, you may request to restore your website from any of those 14 days. It is possible that on a given day a backup fails. If a backup fails you will receive notification of that failure and we can not restore your website to that date of failure. We can only perform a FULL restore of all the WordPress files and the database file from a specific backup file. We can not restore individual files or partial data. To request a restore of your website, you must send us an email to email@example.com and we will provide you with further instructions. For the security of your data, we do not specify on our Sites the entire procedure to request a restore of your website. We do not provide any guarantee on how long it will take us to restore your WordPress files and database from a backup but we try to start your restoration within 2 hours of receiving your authorized request. You can make additional requests for a restore at a cost of $9.99 per request. If you are subscribed to a free plan, we can not restore your website. Depending on the size of your files and database, it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours for the restoration process to complete. You can request a free copy of your backup file (limited to 1 free request per month). You can request any of the existing backup files stored according to your plan. You can make additional requests for a backup file at a cost of $9.99 per request. To request a copy of your backup file, just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with further instructions on how to download your backup file.
12. Limitations to Website Updates
By subscribing to one of our plans, you authorize us to update all of the WordPress core files, the active theme, and all of the active plugins as needed. We update all WordPress plugins and themes (when a new release is available) that allow automatic updates. By automatic updates, we mean all themes and plugins that can be updated from within the WordPress Dashboard. We will not update any themes or plugins that require a file upload. We perform all updates after confirming that your website was successfully backed up. We will only update plugins and themes that are compatible with the version of WordPress that you have installed. We will only update the WordPress core files if all your plugins are compatible with the latest version of WordPress. If after performing any update, your website is not working as it should, we will restore your website for free to how it was before the update. When a new release of a plugin or theme is available, it can take us up to 72 hours to perform the updates because we first need to verify that the updates are compatible with your current WordPress version. We will update inactive themes and plugins for security reasons but we highly recommend that you delete all inactive themes and plugins. We will never delete a plugin or theme without your prior written consent. We typically start all backups at 12 AM EST and then perform all updates after confirming that your website was successfully backed up. It is your sole responsibility to notify us via email if you notice that your website is not working properly after any updates are performed and ask us to restore your website to the latest backup version. If we have to restore your website, we can not recover any content, posts, pages, or any changes that occurred between the time the backup was created and the time the website was restored.
13. Term & Termination
This Agreement, and any posted revisions, remain in effect as long as you continue to maintain an account or use the Services. You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Sites and discontinuing use of the Services. If you have a Trial Plan or Free Plan, Idealocity may terminate your account and this Agreement immediately and without notice if our system is unable to backup your website for more than thirty (30) days or if you fail to comply with any of the terms in this Agreement.
