This Terms of Service Agreement ("TOS Agreement") constitutes a valid, binding and enforceable legal contract by and between you, the "Subscriber", and Backupsy ("Formally Nodisto IT") VPS hosting.
Backupsy reserves the right to add, delete or modify any provision of this agreement at any time without notice. You agree to be bound by any changes Backupsy may reasonably make to this agreement when such changes are made. If you have purchased services or software from Backupsy, the term of this agreement shall continue in full force and effect as long as you take advantage of and use the software or services that we provide. You can find the latest update time at the bottom of this page.
Backupsy will not grant that any Subscriber, unaware of a point of this agreement, may escape liability for violating this agreement merely because Subscriber was unaware of the content of this agreement. In the event Subscriber is uncertain if Subscriber's actions will violate Backupsy's agreement, Subscriber must contact Backupsy, via any recordable means, to receive a disposition for Subscriber's actions. Failure for Subscriber to contact Backupsy for a disposition will not grant impunity, and may cause Subscriber's account to be suspended or terminated at Backupsy's discretion.
Backupsy respects your privacy and will never go through your files. Backupsy will not read or search through your files without your explicit permission submitted via a ticket.
Backupsy takes all the necessary measures to keep your data safe. Virtual machines are not backed up. In the event of data loss, Backupsy's default action will be to provide a new virtual machine for you to store your data in. However, Backupsy is NOT responsible for lost data, time, income or any other resource due to hardware or software failure.
Backupsy VPSes are only allowed to run programs intended to store or assist in the backup of Subscriber's data. Anyone found running programs not intended to store or assist in backup will be suspended and asked to cease, if they fail to, termination will follow.
Backupsy strictly forbids the backing up, storing, and sharing of any prohibited content. Prohibited content includes, but is not limited to
- Child exploitation
- Illegal content
- Copyright infringing content
- Anything prohibited by US laws
Excessive Utilization of Resources
Subscriber's programs and services may not use more than 90% of one CPU core per process thread for more than 15 minutes. Subscriber's programs and services will be lowered in priority - such that they can only execute if the CPU is idle - if found to be using more than 90% of one CPU core per process thread. Subscriber's programs and services may not use 100% of one CPU core for more than 2 minutes.
Furthermore, Subscriber cannot utilize more than 50% of allocated IOPS (input and output per second) resources for more than 15 minutes.
We allow and encourage using all of the storage space that you have been allocated with.
If you are not satisfied with our services, you can request a full refund of the service fee in 7 days. The 7 days of grace period starts with the payment of the first invoice. License fees and custom service fees are not refundable. No refunds of any kind will be given if the account in question has violated our Terms of Service prior to the cancellation request.
If Subscriber have chosen an Backupsy service that is unmanaged, Backupsy's support will be limited to resolving issues with Backupsy's servers or networks. Backupsy will not help with installation, configuration, or troubleshooting of any third-party scripts or software that do not pertain to the management of Backupsy's servers or networks.
All account plans come with a predetermined amount of traffic allowance. If the 90% of the allocated traffic limit reached, Backupsy will notice the customer. If 110% of the allocated traffic limit reached, Backupsy will suspend the services.
All new accounts MUST be registered with valid, verifiable information. Accounts found to be registered with false information will be terminated without notice and the current payment period will be refunded. Multiple accounts per Subscriber are not allowed.
Subscriber must maintain accurate and current identification information with Backupsy through the entire term of Subscriber's service with Backupsy. Any change in information may be verified by Backupsy, and if Backupsy is unable to obtain verification, Backupsy may suspend or terminate Subscriber's service.
Purchasing services from Backupsy while utilizing a VPN or other such methods is strictly forbidden.
Subscriber must submit cancellation requests from Subscriber's authenticated client area. Backupsy is unable to accept cancellation requests from emails, support tickets sent via unauthenticated means, or live chat. Backupsy is unable to grant exceptions. All account credits will be forfeited at the time of cancellation. Subscriber may request that Backupsy delete all Subscriber information at the time of cancellation.
Chargebacks and Payment Disputes
Please do not file chargebacks or payment disputes without contacting to us. The fees involved in this kind of actions would hurt our pricing structure. We value as a customer and will make reasonable commercial efforts to resolve your payment issues.
Subscriber's Contact Information
Backupsy is not responsible for damages or compensation resulting from Subscriber's inability to receive communication from Backupsy, such as but not limited to notification of downtime, or notification of suspension of Subscriber's services. From time to time, Backupsy may send Subscriber information and/or notices that may or may not be totally relevant to Subscriber; Subscriber may not opt out of these communications.
Backupsy utilizes Maxmind and Fraudrecord to automatically process all new orders. All new accounts may be subject to a manual account review.
All invoice payments for existing services by Subscriber may be subject to random manual reviews.
In the event that Backupsy, during its manual reviews, discover any points that Backupsy requires further clarification on, Backupsy will contact Subscriber via support ticket and/or email, and at Backupsy's discretion, and may suspend Subscriber's services until the verification issue is resolved with Subscriber. In the event that it takes multiple days to resolve a verification issue, Backupsy will credit Subscriber's account with the number of days it took to resolve the issue.
When a Subscriber signs up for service, an invoice will be generated that is due immediately. Service will not commence until Subscriber pays the invoice.
In the event Subscriber pays with a payment that turns out to be fraudulent, Subscriber's services and account will be terminated immediately and without notice.
If Subscriber initiates a dispute or chargeback, or threatens such action, Backupsy may terminate Subscriber's services immediately and without further notice.
All payments made to Backupsy must be made from the same name, or a reasonable similarity thereof, the name on the Subscriber's account at Backupsy. Subscriber may open a billing ticket with Backupsy and request permission to pay from a different account, however, this is at Backupsy's discretion.
All existing invoices must be paid before ordering new services. If a Subscriber creates a new order without paying existing invoices, the new services may be terminated and refunded, at Backupsy's discretion.
Backupsy's automated billing system runs daily at 7:00am MST (-7 UTC).
Backupsy generates invoices two weeks before the invoice due date.
Backupsy sends out a payment reminder one week before the invoice due date.
Backupsy sends out invoice overdue notices on the first, second, and third day an invoice is overdue.
If Subscriber does not pay the invoice by the 4th day after the invoice is due, Backupsy will suspend Subscriber's service. Subscriber will be notified that their service has been suspended.
If Subscriber does not pay the invoice by the 7th day after the invoice is due, Backupsy will terminate Subscriber's service, without notice. Upon termination, Subscriber's service data will be deleted without possibility for recovery.
It is Subscriber's responsibility to ensure that steps are taken to receive all email communications from Backupsy, and to keep track of due dates for Subscriber's services.
Backupsy will not offer compensation downtime stemming from suspension/termination for Subscriber's lack of responsibility on keeping track of service due dates.
Subscriber is required to maintain a secure account, utilizing good security practices. This includes, but is not limited to, choosing and maintaining secure passwords on servers, shared hosting accounts, and other services provided by Backupsy.
If it is determined that Subscriber is maintaining weak account security, Backupsy will, at it's discretion, suspend or terminate Subscriber's service, without a refund.
Subscriber agrees to notify Backupsy of any unauthorized activity on Subscriber's account or services, or any other breach of security. Subscriber agrees to take any action necessary to rectify any security issues.
Subscriber is required to submit all support issues via the support ticket system that Subscriber is given access to upon initiation of service. Submitting support issues via email, phone, live chat, or any other method, may not have speedy resolution.
Backupsy strives to maintain 24/7 support under the following response goals, when submitted via support ticket system:
These times are Eastern Standard Time zone, which is -5 UTC:
WEEKDAYS (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri):
4 AM(0400) to 5 PM(1700): 30 minutes or less
5 PM(1700) to 4 AM(0400): 6 hours or less

Please note that these are support ticket response goals, not issue resolution goals. Backupsy does not offer compensation for support tickets that fall outside of the response goals. Depending on factors outside of our control, issue resolution may take longer than anticipated. Backupsy does not offer compensation for such delays.
Issues may be worked by multiple support techs. Please do not request resolution by a specific tech, as this will delay resolution of Subscriber's issue.
