1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Welcome to the Springbolt service (a service of Default Limited). Everyone who uses Springbolt - even on a trial basis - is subject to these Terms of Service ("TOS"). Default Limited reserves the right to update and change the TOS from time to time without notice or acceptance by you. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Agreement.

2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Default Limited provides each Account Holder with a web site on Default Limited' Internet Property (Springbolt Business Site). Each Springbolt Business Site includes tools that enable Account Holders to create reports, manage products and accounts and more. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the TOS. In order to use the Service, you must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You also agree not to access the Service by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by Default Limited for use in accessing the Service. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Default Limited, such as service announcements, administrative messages and other critical Springbolt announcements, and that these communications are considered part of Springbolt membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.

3. REGISTRATION

To be an Account Holder with your own Springbolt Business Site, you must provide Default Limited with a credit card (for paying accounts only), billing information, email address, legal name and/or business name, and other required information ("Registration Data").

If you register to use the free version of the Service, you will also have to go through the registration process.

4. PAYMENT TERMS

4.1 BILLING

Default Limited charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. Default Limited will automatically renew and bill your credit card every month.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.

4.2 UPGRADES AND DOWNGRADES

You will have the ability to upgrade or downgrade the Service at any time during the term (downgrades are only available from one paying level to another -- downgrades from paying accounts to free accounts are not possible). Such upgrade or downgrade will take effect immediately. For any upgrade or downgrade in package level, the credit card that you provided as part of your Registration Data will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service. The expiration/renewal date of Service will not change. Fees may not be credited towards other Services. All currency references are in GBP pound sterling. Please note that downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your Springbolt Business Site, and Default Limited does not accept any liability for such loss.

4.3 CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION

If you cancel the Service before the end of the term, your cancellation will take effect immediately. After cancellation, you will no longer have access to your website and all information contained therein may be deleted. Default Limited accepts no liability for such deleted information or content. If you are a Guest, the Account Holder who invites you may request Default Limited to, and Default Limited may, terminate your Service at any time and for any reason. If your credit card is invalid, we will notify you and attempt to change the card again in 72 hours. If it's invalid again, you'll have 72 hours to provide a new card. If that one is invalid, the Service may be cancelled and all the information contained within deleted permanently. Default Limited accepts no liability for information that is deleted due to an invalid credit card.

In addition, Default Limited may immediately terminate the Service for your failure to follow the Agreement. Such termination of the Service may result in the deactivation or deletion of your Springbolt Business Site or your access to a Springbolt Business Site, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all content on your Springbolt Business Site.
