LAST UPDATE: November 29th, 2018
General terms apply to all refund eligible Services offered by SafeGuard Hosting (www.safeguardhosting.ca). In addition, there may be special term(s) that apply to a specific product and/or service, and those are outlined below.
In no event is the same Service eligible for more than one refund. Service(s) must be cancelled before refund can be issued. No refund will be made if your Service(s) are suspended or terminated for cause per the Terms and Conditions for SafeGuard Hosting.
If purchased Service(s) include free domain name registration as part of a promotion or sale of the Service(s), and you cancel the purchased Service(s), the standard price for the domain name will be deducted from the refund amount. If the refund amount is less than the standard price for the domain, you must either elect to pay the difference or forfeit the domain, in which case, ownership of the domain will revert back to SafeGuard Hosting.
All refunds are processed in Canadian dollars: you, the customer, bear sole responsibility for any fluctuations in the exchange rate(s) between the time of payment and the time of refund (if applicable).
Unless you request otherwise, refunds will be credited to your SafeGuard Hosting account balance. Purchases made using SafeGuard Hosting account funds can only be refunded as account credit. Purchases made by credit card or PayPal may be refundable to the source of payment.
SafeGuard Hosting is not responsible for any additional charges imposed by your credit card company or PayPal in the case of refund. Any processing fee(s) will be deducted from refund.
Additional refund requirements may apply based on specific terms and conditions notified to you when purchasing any SafeGuard Hosting Service(s).
