Terms of Service
Last Updated July 28, 2023
The Terms of Service Agreement (this “Agreement”) contains the terms and conditions that govern your access to and use of this Web Site and our Service Offerings (as defined below) and is an agreement between Site Bay Limited (“Site Bay,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) and you. This Agreement takes effect when you click an “I Accept” button or check box presented with these terms or, if earlier, when you use any of the Service Offerings (the “Effective Date”). You represent to us that you (a) have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this Agreement; (b) are lawfully able to enter into contracts (e.g., you are not a minor). If you are using the Service Offerings on behalf of an entity, you are agreeing to this Agreement for that entity and representing to Site Bay that you have the authority to bind that entity to this Agreement (in which case “you” and “Subscriber” will refer to that entity, and, together with other users of the Web Site, “Subscribers”), unless that entity has a separate contract in effect with us, in which event the terms of that contract will govern use by the entity. If you do not agree to be bound by this agreement, you may not access or use this Web Site or the Service Offerings.
Your use of, and participation in, certain services offered by Site Bay may be subject to additional terms (“Supplemental Terms”), and such Supplemental Terms will either be listed in the Agreement or will be presented to you for your acceptance when you sign up to use the supplemental service. If the Agreement is inconsistent with the Supplemental Terms, the Supplemental Terms shall control with respect to such service. This Agreement and any applicable Supplement Terms are referred to herein as the “Agreement.”
This agreement limits the remedies that may be available to you in the event of a dispute.
Please note that this Agreement is subject to change by Site Bay in its sole discretion at any time. When changes are made, Site Bay will make a new copy of this Agreement available at its Web Site. We will also update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Agreement. If we make any material changes, and you have created an account with us, we will also either send an e-mail to you at the last e-mail address you provided pursuant to this Agreement or post the updated Agreement on the UI (defined below). Any changes to the Agreement will be effective immediately for new users of the Web Site and/or Service Offerings and will be effective thirty (30) days after posting notice of such changes on the Web Site for existing Subscribers, provided that any material changes shall be effective for Subscribers who have an account with us upon the earlier of thirty (30) days after posting notice of such changes on the Web Site or thirty (30) days after dispatch of an e-mail notice of such changes to such Subscribers. Site Bay may require you to provide consent to the updated Agreement in a specified manner before use of the Web Site or the Service Offerings is permitted. If you do not agree to any change(s) after receiving notice of such change(s), you shall stop using the Web Site and the Service Offerings. Otherwise, your continued use of the Web Site and/or the Service Offerings constitutes your acceptance of such change(s).
Capitalized terms used in this Agreement shall have the meaning set forth in Section 17 or as otherwise defined within the Agreement.
1. USE OF THE SERVICE OFFERINGS
1.1 Service Offerings. Site Bay provides (a) paid hosting, tools, and support for operators of sites (“Subscribers”) and (b) gives certain entities the right to resell hosting. This Agreement sets forth the terms pursuant to which Subscribers may access and use Site Bay’s Service Offerings.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Site Bay will provide the Service Offerings that you select, solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party (other than as provided under Section 2 (Resale of Subscription Plans). Service Offerings shall include, but not be limited to, any Services Site Bay performs for Subscriber, as well as the offering of any Subscriber Content on the UI.
1.2 Access to Service Offerings. Site Bay will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the Subscription Plans and Software Tools are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. However, there will be occasions when the Subscription Plans, Software Tools, and/or the Web Site will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment. Site Bay will take reasonable steps to minimize such disruption where it is within Site Bay’s reasonable control. You agree that Site Bay will not be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance or lack of availability of the UI, the Service Offerings, Subscriber Content or Third Party Content. You are responsible for obtaining, maintaining and ensuring compatibility of any equipment or ancillary services needed to connect to, access the UI or otherwise use the Service Offerings, including without limitation, hardware, software, routers, wireless, networking devices, firewalls, modems, broadband service, and long distance or local telephone service. Site Bay may change, suspend or discontinue the Service Offerings at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or UI. Site Bay may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service Offerings without notice or liability. Site Bay retains the right to create limits on use, bandwidth and storage in its sole discretion at any time with or without notice.
1.3 Subscribers Registration. Subscriber will be required to register with Site Bay and may select a password by providing Site Bay with accurate, complete, and updated registration information, including Subscriber’s e-mail address. Failure to do so shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement. Subscriber may not use as a Site Bay URL a name that is subject to any third-party rights without appropriate authorization. Site Bay reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel, a Site Bay URL in its discretion. Subscriber is solely responsible for any use of or action taken under Subscriber’s password and accepts full responsibility for all activity conducted through Subscriber’s account and hereby releases Site Bay from any and all liability concerning such activity. Subscriber shall notify Site Bay immediately of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of Subscriber’s account or password.
1.4 Restrictions. Except as expressly authorized pursuant to this Agreement, including Section 2 (Resale of Subscription Plans), Subscribers and each End User may not and may not permit others to: (a) sell, rent, lease, license, sublicense, or assign the Service Offerings, or any part thereof to others without Site Bay’s prior written permission; (b) access or use the Service Offerings in a way intended to avoid incurring fees or exceeding usage limits or quotas; (c) transfer the Service Offering, in whole or in part, or any copy thereof to another party, unless you receive written permission from an authorized agent of Site Bay; (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise derive the source code from the Software Tools or Service Offerings, or any part thereof, without Site Bay’s prior written permission; (e) copy, modify or prepare derivative works of the Service Offerings, or any part thereof; (f) provide or permit access to the Service Offerings or any part thereof except for the sole use of End User; (g) copy, distribute or otherwise use the Service Offerings or any part thereof in any manner which competes with or substitutes for Site Bay’s distribution of the Service Offerings; (h) use the Service Offerings to send unsolicited e-mails, bulk mail, spam or other materials to users of the UI or any other individual; (i) use the Service Offerings in any libelous, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harassing, hateful, offensive, or manner that otherwise violates this Agreement, any law, or right of any third party, (j) use the Service Offerings in High Risk Activities or Other Prohibited Activities; (k) attempt to breach Site Bay’s security or authentication measures, whether by passive or intrusive techniques; (l) perform or publish any performance or benchmark tests or analyses relating to the Service Offerings, or the use thereof; or (m) cover or obscure any page or part of the Service Offerings via HTML, CSS, scripting, or any other means.
Except as expressly set forth herein, no express or implied license or right of any kind is granted to Subscriber regarding the Service Offerings, or any part thereof. All licenses and other rights, if any, granted to you in this Agreement are conditional on your continued compliance with this Agreement, and will immediately and automatically terminate if you do not comply with any term or condition of this Agreement. During and after the term of this Agreement, you will not assert, nor will you authorize, assist, or encourage any third party to assert, against Site Bay or Site Bay’s customers, vendors, business partners, or licensors, any patent infringement or other intellectual property infringement claim regarding any Service Offerings you or any other authorized users have used on your behalf. Subscriber shall abide by all copyright notices, information, and restrictions contained in any UI accessed through the Service Offerings. The parties acknowledge that any actual or threatened breach of this Section 1.4 (Restrictions) will constitute immediate, irreparable harm to Site Bay for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that injunctive relief is an appropriate remedy for such breach. If any legal action is brought to enforce this Section 1.4, Site Bay will be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees, court costs, and other collection expenses, in addition to any other relief it may receive.
1.5 Compliance. Subscriber shall comply with the laws of all countries where it operates. Subscriber is solely responsible for the subject matter and nature of the Subscriber Content. Subscriber shall be responsible for ensuring that its use of the Service Offerings, and that any processing of Subscriber Content by Site Bay or Subscriber via the Service Offerings, do not violate any applicable laws or regulations. Subscriber shall provide all notices to, and obtain and maintain any consents from, any individual data subject as required by any applicable law or regulation in connection with the processing of any personally identifiable information and/or personal data of such individual data subjects via the Service Offerings by Site Bay and/or Subscriber. Subscriber shall not process or submit to the Service Offerings any Subscriber Content that includes any personally identifiable information and/or personal data of any individual data subject consisting of: (i) “personal health information,” as defined under Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA); (ii) government-issued identification numbers, including Social Insurance numbers, driver’s license numbers and other government-issued identification numbers; (iii) financial account information, including bank account numbers, and primary account numbers; (iv) payment card data, including credit card or debit card numbers; or (v) “sensitive personal data” or “special categories of personal data,” consisting of ethnic or racial origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, genetic data, trade union membership, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.

2. RESALE OF SUBSCRIPTION PLANS
2.1 Agencies. Certain Subscribers may either only build websites for third parties or build websites for third parties in addition to their own websites. Such Subscribers are defined as “Agencies” hereunder. Only entities that are direct signatories to this Agreement with Site Bay may be Agencies. Agencies that purchase Subscription Plans for the websites they develop may resell the Subscription Plans provided by Site Bay to their third party customers (each, a “Client”). From time to time, Site Bay may opt to exclude certain offerings from those that may be resold.
2.2 Resale. Agencies may resell Subscription Plans to the Clients that will be operating their own websites, provided that and for so long as (a) Subscriber pays Site Bay its then current fee for each such Subscription Plan and any renewal thereof; (b) Agency obtains the Client’s agreement to be bound by the obligations imposed on Subscribers pursuant to this Agreement (the “Pass Through Terms”), such Clients then also become Subscribers under this Agreement, and (c) Site Bay is made a third party beneficiary of the Pass Through Terms. Pricing, billing, support, and all other terms and conditions are solely between you and your Client, and your agreement with your Client will include language that specifically exempts third parties, including Site Bay, from any liability (the “Agency Reseller Agreement”). You shall promptly notify Site Bay of any violations of this Agreement or the Agency Reseller Agreement by any Clients.
2.3 Your Failure to Pay for Clients. Site Bay reserves the right to terminate the Subscription Plans, or any renewal thereof, provided by Site Bay to you or that you resold to a Client, in the event that you fail to pay the applicable fees for such Subscription Plan within ten (10) days after such payment becomes due hereunder.
2.4 Client Violations. You are responsible for your Clients’ use of Subscriber Content and the Subscription Plan. You will ensure that all Clients comply with the Pass Through Terms and that the terms of your Agency Reseller Agreement with each Client are consistent with this Agreement. If you become aware of any violation of the Pass Through Terms by a Client, you will immediately terminate such Client’s access to the Subscription Plan.
2.5 No Warranties. You may not make any representations or warranties regarding the functionality or performance of the Service Offerings that exceed the terms set forth in this Agreement, and you agree to indemnify and hold Site Bay harmless pursuant to the terms of Section 8 for any claims or lawsuits resulting from such action.

No other support will be provided under this Agreement.
3.2 Technical Assistance. Site Bay will make reasonable efforts to provide customer with the technical assistance described in the applicable Support Description; support does not include on-site assistance.

4. DATA PROCESSING UNDER GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION.
This Section 4 Data Processing Under General Data Protection Regulation will apply only with respect to obligations of the parties under the Applicable Data Protection Law (as defined below). In the course of performing its obligations to Subscriber pursuant to this Agreement, including providing Service Offerings, Site Bay will provide content hosting services for the duration of this Agreement, and may process personal data which is protected under Applicable Data Protection Law (as defined below), on behalf of Subscriber. Subscriber is responsible for the nature of any personal data contained in the Subscriber Content, and for obtaining consent from data subjects.

Each party shall comply with the obligations that apply to it under Applicable Data Protection Law. If Site Bay becomes aware that processing for the Permitted Purpose infringes Applicable Data Protection Law, it shall promptly inform Subscriber.

Such measures may include (without limitation) transferring the personal data to a recipient in a country that the European Commission has decided provides adequate protection for personal data, to a recipient in Canada that with whom we maintain a Data Processing Agreement including Standard Contractual Clauses and the recipient further demonstrates the maintenance of technical and organizational safeguards to protect the personal data, to a recipient that has achieved binding corporate rules authorization in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Law, or to a recipient that has executed standard contractual clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission.
4.4 Confidentiality of processing. Site Bay shall ensure that any person it authorizes to process the personal data (an “Authorized Person”) shall protect the Data in accordance with Site Bay’s confidentiality obligations under this Agreement.

Subscriber consents to Site Bay engaging third party subprocessors to process the personal data for the Permitted Purpose provided that: (i) Site Bay maintains an up-to-date list of its subprocessors and will make that list available to Subscriber upon request or by posting such list to Site Bay’s website; (ii) Site Bay imposes data protection terms on any subprocessor it appoints that require it to protect the personal data to the standard required by Applicable Data Protection Law; and (iii) Site Bay remains liable for any breach of this clause that is caused by an act, error or omission of its subprocessor. Subscriber may object to Site Bay’s appointment or replacement of a subprocessor prior to its appointment or replacement, provided such objection is based on reasonable grounds relating to data protection. In such event, Site Bay will either not appoint or replace the subprocessor or, if this is not possible, Subscriber may suspend or terminate Agreement (without prejudice to any fees incurred by Subscriber prior to suspension or termination).
4.7 Cooperation and data subjects’ rights. Site Bay shall provide reasonable and timely assistance to Subscriber (at Subscriber’s expense) to enable Subscriber to respond to: (i) any request from a data subject to exercise any of its rights under Applicable Data Protection Law (including its rights of access, correction, objection, erasure and data portability, as applicable); and (ii) any other correspondence, inquiry or complaint received from a data subject, regulator or other third party in connection with the processing of the personal data. In the event that any such request, correspondence, inquiry or complaint is made directly to Site Bay, Site Bay shall promptly inform Subscriber providing full details of the same.
4.8 Data Protection Impact Assessment. Site Bay shall provide reasonable cooperation to Subscriber (at Subscriber’s expense) in connection with any data protection impact assessment that Subscriber may be required under Applicable Data Protection Law.

8.2 Process. We will promptly notify you of any claim subject to Section 8.1, but our failure to promptly notify you will only affect your obligations under this Section 8 to the extent that our failure prejudices your ability to defend the claim. We will choose legal counsel to defend the claim, provided that these decisions must be reasonable and must be promptly communicated to you. You must comply with our reasonable requests for assistance and cooperation in the defense of the claim. We may not settle the claim without your consent, although such consent may not be unreasonably withheld. You must pay expenses due under this Section as we incur them.

11. FEES AND PAYMENTS.
11.1 Fees. Some of the Service Offerings require payment of fees. Fees are stated in Canadian dollars, U.S. dollars or Euros.

All fees are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise on the Web Site. No credits or refunds of any kind will be given. Subscriber represents to Site Bay that Subscriber is the authorized account holder or an authorized user of the chosen method of payment used to pay for the paid aspects of the Service Offerings.

16. Legal Disputes.
16.1 PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND SITE BAY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You and Site Bay agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen, or may arise, between you and Site Bay (including any claim or dispute between you and a third-party agent of Site Bay) that relates in any way to or arises out of this or previous versions of this Agreement, your use of or access to the Service Offerings, the actions of Site Bay or its agents, or any products, services or support sold, offered, or purchased from Site Bay will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes section.
16.2. Applicable Law.
You agree that, except to the extent inconsistent with or preempted by federal law, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern this Agreement and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Site Bay, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement.
16.3. Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Site Bay each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen, or may arise, between you and Site Bay (including any disputes or claims between you and a third-party agent of Site Bay) that relate in any way to or arise out of this or previous versions of the Agreement, your use of or access to the Service Offerings, the actions of Site Bay or its agents, or any products, services, or support sold, offered, or purchased from Site Bay shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND SITE BAY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, OR REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SITE BAY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court, subject to your and Site Bay’s right to appeal the court’s decision. All other claims will be arbitrated.
16.3.2 Arbitration Procedures
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the terms of the Agreement as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to arbitrability, the scope or enforceability of this Agreement to Arbitrate, or the interpretation of Section 16.3.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”), shall be for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide.
The arbitration will be conducted by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) under its rules and procedures, including the ICDR’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The ICDR’s rules are available at www.adr.org.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a completed form Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). You may request a Notice by contacting Site Bay. The request for the Notice and the completed Notice to Site Bay should be sent to Site Bay at the address set forth in Section 15.11, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Notice of Dispute. Site Bay will send any Notice to you to the physical address we have on file associated with your Site Bay account; it is your responsibility to keep your physical address up to date. All information called for in the Notice must be provided, including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
If you and Site Bay are unable to resolve the claims described in the Notice within 30 days after the Notice is sent, you or Site Bay may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the ICDR’s site at www.adr.org. In addition to filing this form with the ICDR in accordance with its rules and procedures, the party initiating the arbitration must mail a copy of the completed form to the opposing party. You may send a copy to Site Bay at the address set out in Section 15.11 attention Site Bay Legal Department. In the event Site Bay initiates an arbitration against you, it will send a copy of the completed form to the physical address we have on file associated with your Site Bay account. Any settlement offer made by you or Site Bay shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitration hearing shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Site Bay may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Site Bay subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or Site Bay may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
16.3.3 Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the ICDR’s rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate.
With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 16.3.1 of this Agreement to Arbitrate (“Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief”), if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply.
Future Amendments to the Agreement to Arbitrate
Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any amendment to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than an amendment to any notice address or site link provided herein) in the future, that amendment shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Site Bay prior to the effective date of the amendment. The amendment shall apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the Agreement to Arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between you and Site Bay.
16.4. Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes
Unless you and we agree otherwise, in the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Site Bay must be resolved exclusively by a federal court located in Canada. You and Site Bay agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Canada for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
