Terms Of Service
Repair Geek reserves the right to terminate this TOS for any reason or no reason. Repair Geek reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
The features and details of the Services governed by this TOS are described on our website at “repairgeek.net”. Throughout this TOS, the aspects of the Services provided to you by Repair Geek, are referred to together as the “Service.” Certain parts of the Service may be provided by third party vendors. These third parties may have reserved the right to make changes, including material changes, to their products and incorporated into our Service. If a third party makes a change to its products, you may not terminate this TOS based on such a change, even if it materially affects the Service.
As part of providing you with the Service, you are required to provide us with accurate and up-to-date information when setting up your account, and during the course of our business relationship. We will communicate with you by e-mail about the Service from time to time. You agree to provide us with an e-mail address that is active and monitored on a daily basis. Repair Geek has no responsibility, or liability, for interruptions in the Services that we provide, or damages of any sort, based on communications that are misdirected as a result of your failure to provide us with valid contact information. The contact in our records is considered by us to be our customer and we will communicate with this contact as the account administrator. However, if there is any dispute, we will consider the person/entity who paid for the latest billing period of the account to be the owner of the account. If you are reselling the Service, or are an End User of a reseller, it is your obligation to ensure that our records accurately reflect the correct ownership and control of the Service.
Repair Geek reserves the right to amend its service offerings and add, delete, suspend, or modify the Service and Service fees at any time at its sole discretion, and reserves the right to determine whether and when any such changes apply to both existing and future customers.
Repair Geek offers two billing cycles for hosting charges: quarterly (3 months) or annual (12 months). Customer agrees to a quarterly contract term or an annual contract term for Repair Geek Service. If selected, the quarterly contract is automatically renewed each anniversary quarter in perpetuity unless the Service is cancelled by the Customer or if the billing cycle is changed to the annual billing cycle. If selected, the annual contract is automatically renewed each year in perpetuity unless the Service is cancelled by the Customer or if the billing cycle is changed to the quarterly billing cycle. If the billing cycle is changed, then the contract is automatically renewed each term in perpetuity at the new billing cycle unless the Service is cancelled by the Customer or if the billing cycle is changed back.
The date of the initial online order for Repair Geek Services, will set the Account monthly anniversary date for all future billings. Services are provided on a prepayment basis and fees for services will be billed on the anniversary date of the billing cycle of the Service. All fees are fully earned when due and non-refundable when paid. Customer agrees that Repair Geek will charge all Service Fees to the credit card supplied by Customer. All payments shall be made in US Currency. The Service Fees do not include any applicable sales, use, revenue, excise or other taxes imposed by any taxing authority with respect to the Services or any software provided hereunder. If applicable, all taxes will be paid by the Customer.
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
If Customer terminates this Agreement within 30 calendar days of the order’s initial sign up date and they request immediate termination, they will receive a full refund of the quarterly or annual hosting Service Fees paid when setting up the account. Setup fees, new domain name registration fees, and Domain ID Protect fees are not refundable. If Customer requests termination after the first 30 days, then there will be no refund. This Money Back Guarantee does not apply to the renewal term or plan/period changes. Customers can submit account cancellation requests through the client area and select immediate termination or termination at the end of billing period.
Repair Geek Services allow customers to order and manage multiple Sites within their Client Area. For each Site, the customer can select a quarterly term or annual term. The date of the initial online order for Repair Geek Services which setup the Client Area, will set an Account anniversary monthly date for all future billings of all Sites managed in the Client Area. Any new Site ordered whether quarterly or annual will be synced to the day of the monthly anniversary date.
One Time Fees
Any one time fees are due and payable at the time they are incurred and are non-refundable.
Annual Fees for Domain Name Registration and Domain ID Protect
Certain services such as Domain Name registration and Domain ID Protect are on an annual billing cycle which can be out-of-sync with the Service Fee anniversary date. The customer is responsible for logging into their Client Area and renewing these services manually. Repair Geek will e-mail reminder notices to the customer regarding the renewal of these services. Customer understands that Domain Name Registration fees and Domain ID Protect fees and any other like annual service fees are non-refundable.
New Domain Name Registration
Under this TOS, the Customer has the option, through the Order Form or as part of service activation within the Client Area, to request Repair Geek to register a new domain name on behalf of the Customer. Customer understands and acknowledges that Repair Geek is not a Domain Registrar and that Repair Geek will register new domain names through a Domain Registrar partner selected by Repair Geek. Customer understands that the domain registration process requires Repair Geek to pass Customer Information to the Domain Registrar partner and such information may become public information. Repair Geek will not be responsible if a domain name is not available for any reason. Repair Geek will not be responsible for any infringement of any third party rights caused by its domain registration on behalf of Customer. For such new domain name registrations, Customer shall comply with the then current Domain Name Terms and Conditions posted at our current domain registrar partner’s website at http://www.enom.com/terms/agreement.aspx, ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy posted at http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm, and Registrant Rights and Responsibilities Under the 2009 Registrar Accreditation Agreement posted at http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities-en.htm.
You are responsible for tracking your site storage limits and traffic bandwidth. Disk storage consists of email storage, web site storage and database storage. Bandwidth is a measurement of all inbound and outbound traffic for your domain which includes but is not limited to all ftp and www traffic. Tracking tools are available in the website Control Panel – these logs will be used as the final rule for overage calculations.
You agree to pay any and all overage charges for Disk Usage and/or web site bandwidth. Failure to pay overage charges may result in the cancellation of your service with no refunds. Bandwidth overages are $0.05/MB ($50/GB). Storage overages are $0.05/MB ($50/GB).
Should any service credits be issued to the Customer account, they will be used to offset hosting fees assessed in the future. Service credits are not cashable and cannot be transferred to other accounts.
Repair Geek uses various technologies to screen orders for fraud prevention. Each order for new Service is subject to our fraud prevention screening. Repair Geek is not obligated to provide Service to Customer until Customers comply with all fraud prevention program requests. Any unfulfilled requests may result in account suspension and/or account cancellation. Customers may still be responsible for any Third Party Service that they may subscribe to. Repair Geek is not responsible, and Customer agrees to hold Repair Geek harmless from, any liability or damage that Customer or any third party may sustain, should Customer fail to meet the criteria of the fraud prevention controls.
If Customer wishes to cancel Service for any reason, the Customer must log into their Client Area at https://www.repairgeek.net/contact and use the Request Cancellation link to cancel Service of a particular Site. Cancellations are effective at the end of the current billing period (Cancellation Date). For security and privacy, all customer files, data, and e-mail remaining on Repair Geek servers after the cancellation date will be destroyed and unrecoverable for security and privacy reasons. It is the Customer’s responsibility to backup their files and data and download their e-mail prior to requesting Cancellation. Repair Geek is not responsible, and Customer agrees to hold Repair Geek harmless from, any liability or damage that Customer or any third party may sustain, should customer files and data be destroyed after site cancellation.
Transferring Away Domain Names

Refunds and Disputes
All Repair Geek services are non-refundable. Customers seeking to resolve any billing errors are required to open a billing ticket through the Client Area at https://www.repairgeek.net/contact. The Customer agrees not to issue chargebacks for any credit card payments. A chargeback of payment for services rendered will result in an additional charge of $125.
All payments are due in full on the anniversary date. Failure to remit payment for services on the anniversary date is a violation of this TOS. Failure to remit payment for ten (10) consecutive days, including the anniversary date, shall result in a suspension of public access to Customer services. Failure to remit payment for services within thirty (30) consecutive days, including the anniversary date, shall result in termination of access to the service network and all services shall be reclaimed. All Customer files and data remaining after thirty (30) days of non-payment will be destroyed and unrecoverable for security and privacy reasons.
