Glocomm Pty Ltd general policy is to act as a neutral provider of hosting services to the global Internet. Glocomm Pty Ltd has specific ethical concerns regarding the use of its computers detailed below. Glocomm Pty Ltd reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by Glocomm Pty Ltd when Glocomm Pty Ltd decides that the account has been inappropriately used.

Payment Policies

All pricing is guaranteed for the term of payment received. Glocomm Pty Ltd reserves the right to change prices at any time. Payment is due on the first day of the anniversary month or period following the date the account was established. Any account past due more than 10 days is subject to suspension. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer notifies Glocomm Pty Ltd in writing for a request for termination of services. All payments are in AUD currency.

Credit Card Orders - Accounts will be automatically billed, on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis, to the card number on file unless otherwise notified. All credit card payments will be billed during the first week of the month the account is due.

In the event the credit card is declined by their bank, the customer will be notified by email or phone to the email/phone number on file. Past due accounts that are not brought current by the 10th day of current billing month are subject to suspension and possible account termination. In addition, the customer is solely responsible for keeping their contact information current with our company such as email address, telephone number, etc.

There will be a $25 Re-Activation Fee on any accounts suspended and then later re-activated. The company listed on the credit card statement will be Glocomm Pty Ltd. The customer is responsible to notify Glocomm Pty Ltd of any address changes, name changes to the credit card on file as well as updating the expiration date when necessary.

Cancellation Policy

Glocomm Pty Ltd reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by Glocomm Pty Ltd if Glocomm Pty Ltd institutes its right of cancellation. If cancellation is caused by a customer's violation of our policies, then no refund is due.

Due to security concerns, all account cancellations must be done in writing via Mail or Fax. The letter should include a valid signature of the primary contact of the account. In addition the following items are also required, domain name, reason for cancellation, user name, and original account password.

Within the first 30 days, customers can cancel service any time and will be refunded any amount exceeding the pre-payment of the current term. After 30 days, we will honor all cancellations but no pro-rated refunds will be issued.

Customers who sign up on an annual basis where the setup fee was waived, and later cancel within the first 30 days will be assessed a setup fee as if the order was placed on a monthly or quarterly payment plan where applicable.

Any company refunds due, will be issued by company check or a credit posted to the credit card on file within 15 days of receipt of cancellation. The account will be cancelled and all information deleted at the end of the current billing period, unless a date of cancellation is specified. Setup Fees, Domain Name Registrations, Domain Name Renewals, Overages, FTP/File Hosting and Domain Parking fees are non-refundable.

If you are on an annual credit card payment plan and we have not been notified prior to renewal in a manner abiding by our written terms and conditions, your account will be renewed, your credit card charged and there will be no refunds during the subscription period. If there are extenuating circumstances leading up to the cancellation, then Glocomm Pty Ltd may at its sole discretion refund a portion of the unused hosting fees less a $100.00 disposition fee.
