  7. Data Transfer (Bandwidth) and System Resources
    All web hosting accounts should remain within the agreed data transfer (bandwidth) allowance for the account. inGenius Africa Limited accepts that there are times when sites may unexpectedly exceed data transfer allowance for short period of time. inGenius Africa Limited will not impose any penalty for such breaches of data transfer allowance providing that these breaches are small, are not frequent, and are not sustained. inGenius Africa Limited reserve the right to determine what constitutes small, sustained or frequent breaches of data transfer allowance.
    Many domains have to share the various resources (processors, memory, etc) available on the servers. inGenius Africa Limited believe that no single domain should use excessive amounts of resources, as this may jeopardise server performance for the other domains.
    In the event that an account is deemed to be using excessive data transfer (bandwidth) or resources, inGenius Africa Limited may suggest action to reduce bandwidth or resource use, or suggest moving the website to its own dedicated server.
    Account holders may also be subject to additional costs due to excessive data transfer or resource use. These costs will be agreed between inGenius Africa Limited and the account holder.

    Account holders may terminate their accounts simply by sending a letter of cancellation latest one month prior to renewal. No refund will be given where customers terminate their account prior to the end of the term of the hosting account.
    In the event that inGenius Africa Limited finds an account is in breach of the prohibited uses, then that account may be terminated without notice. No refund for the remainder of the year will be given.
    In the event that an account exceeds data transfer or resource allowances and an agreement cannot be reached between inGenius Africa Limited and the account holder, then inGenius Africa Limited may terminate the account. In this case, no refund for the remainder of the year will be given.
