These Terms of Service set forth the terms and conditions that apply to your use of brickftp.com ("Web Site") and the BrickFTP™ and asset hosting service available from the Web Site ("Service"). The Service is operated and offered by Action Verb, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company. By accessing this Web Site and/or using the Service (other than to read this page for the first time), you acknowledge and agree to comply with all of the Terms of Service set forth herein.
All of the information provided by you to register for an account on the Service must be correct and current.
You are the only person allowed to use your BrickFTP™ account, username and password. You agree not to allow anyone else to use your account or password, and to take reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized persons from learning your password and using the Service. You may create separate user accounts within each BrickFTP™ subscription to provide other people access.
You affirm that you are either more than 18 years of age and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set form in these Terms of Service, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Service. Due to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, children under thirteen (13) years of age must not use the Service or submit any individually identifiable information about themselves.
Our Security Technology document details exactly how we store and transfer data, and will prevail in the event of a conflict with other information presented on this site. Please read it to understand our security practices and be sure to take the recommended actions for maximum security if this is required by your business.
The main method of payment accepted for paid accounts is placing a credit card number or linked PayPal account on file. Currently, we accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal. Accounts are billed in advance, and credit cards will be charged automatically to keep subscriptions current. You agree to pay all charges in accordance with any cardmember agreement governing the use of your credit card.
The following additional payment methods are supported if pre-paying in advance for 12 months of service: mailed check (US Dollars only), ACH transfer (US Dollars only), SEPA transfer (Euro only), and FPS (UK/GB Pound Sterling only).
Account cancellations may be made through the BrickFTP™ service itself (on the Site tab) or by calling Action Verb, LLC at 800-286-8372, extension 1. To cancel an account via the telephone, we require that the caller verify all billing information as well as a username and password or support PIN on the account. We do not accept cancellation notices via E-Mail! Upon cancellation, your data will be removed from the system, and there is no mechanism for restoring a cancelled account.
Action Verb, LLC reserves the right to change the price or features of all services, upon 30 days notice. Such notice will be provided by E-Mail. If such a change takes place and you choose not to discontinue or downgrade your account, you will be responsible for the payment of your account at the new rate.
Account prices are billed exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for any such tax, levy, or duty associated with your use of the Service.
"Storage Usage" is calculated by taking the sum of the actual number of bytes contained in each Currently Stored File plus a 64kb overhead per file. The 64kb overhead is to account for the storage costs of metadata such as logs, behaviors, permissions, and notifications associated with each file, as well as overhead costs that are passed through to us by Amazon S3.
"Currently Stored Files" refers to the set of files that as of that time have been uploaded to your account and either (a) not deleted from your account or (b) uploaded within the last 30 days. Another way to say this is that any file uploaded counts toward your storage usage for a minimum of 30 days. We charge this 30 day minimum because Amazon S3 charges us according to a similar scheme and it is important to harmonize our costs with our pricing.
We compute the Storage Usage number several times per day. For each billing period, your account usage is billed according to the highest level of Storage Usage recorded during that billing period. We call this the "high water mark."
If you selected a plan that offers Unlimited Bandwidth, these Terms incorporate by reference our Unlimited Bandwidth Policy, which explains the conditions under which Unlimited Bandwidth is offered.
Upon cancellation as described in Section 2, all accounts are entitled to a full refund of their most recent monthly plan payment (excluding overage charges). Additionally, if the site was on a prepaid annual plan, we will refund the prorated unused portion of the prepayment. Please request a refund when cancelling in order for this to be processed simultaneously.
Refunds for any reason (including SLA credits) will not be granted if they are requested more than 30 days after account cancellation.
We recognize that downtime can be costly and reflect poorly on your business. As such, we will provide compensation in the form of a refund to your credit card (if you have one on file) or a service credit toward future payments (if you do not have a credit card on file) if certain uptime goals are not met and you request a refund.
We define uptime as the percentage of time during a billing period HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, and SFTP services are available on ports 80, 443, 21, 990, and 22 on at least one server in the IP Pool for your site. The IP Pool for your site is defined as the full set of IPs returned by DNS when resolving your BrickFTP subdomain or domain that is associated with a custom SSL certificate, if any. Please note that you may need to make multiple DNS queries to retrieve the full set of IPs in the IP Pool.
The uptimes of these 5 services as computed by Wormly (or another monitoring system we may choose to engage) will be averaged together to compute an overall uptime.
If uptime during a billing period is below 99.5%, you are entitled to a refund of your entire monthly fee.
If uptime during a billing period is below 99.9%, you are entitled to a refund of half of your monthly fee.
