Refusal of Service
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion. All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of HosTBuvA Network must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.
By the Account Activation Date of each month, HosTBuvA shall either:
(1) debit the client’s credit card (when such information has been provided by the client); or
(2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. Invoices are generated 14 days prior to the Account Activation Date, and payment shall be remitted to HosTBuvA Network by no later than the specified payment due date. HosTBuvA Network shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client’s failure to make timely payments. Credit cards can billed automatically unless a direct request is made to our Billing team via the Billing Panel not to do so, at least 48hours prior to the payment due date. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point another payment method must be provided within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, can be suspended.
Certain services carry a setup fee charged by HosTBuvA Network to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to HosTBuvA Network and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the client provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the client will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded.
Fraud and payment verification
Upon receiving a new customer’s first paid order, HosTBuvA Network reserves the right to issue an Order Verification e-mail, requesting further information in order to validate your account. Until all required information is provided and deemed satisfactory by our fraud verification team, no services or support can be provided. The 3 business day delivery guarantee starts after the verification step is passed. Verification is not necessary for all orders, and can only requested on your very first paid order.
Money back guarantee & refund policy
We offer a 10 day Money back policy for undelivered servers. This does not apply to purchases made with a discount of 25% or more. These purchases are final, and non refundable. Refunds: If client has retained the services for longer than one month and has pre-paid HosTBuvA Network for such services, refunds will not be issued for any unused portion of the lease, as your purchase benefits from a long-term rebate. Therefore, if a client’s account is cancelled at any point during a 3month, 6month or one-year term, the client will not be entitled to a refund for the months remaining.
We do not offer trial periods of any kind for dedicated servers. Abusing our 10 day refund policy in order to test our services then get a refund is not acceptable, and no refunds will be made without proper justification, or failure on HosTBuvA Network behalf to provide the services purchased.

-Geo-location or mistake in location
-Failing to ask a question on the nature of our services, or a particular spec or configuration.
-Account termination or suspension due to non-following of our Terms of Service.

-Changing your mind!
We reserve the final decision on refunds, based on the situation and reason for cancellation. The general rule is, if there is an issue on your server, our staff will dedicate themselves to fixing it. Any delays that prevent you from using your server will be credited, and issues that we are simply unable to solve will be refunded. It is important to note that refund requests based on information that was included in the terms of service or clearly available on our website will always be refused. The best example of this is if you have purchased a server that is geo-located and needed a server that is physically available. Please issue a request to our support staff before making such a purchase, if you are unsure.
