Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Yearly, or any other period as agreed between PWP and the Customer), the initial term is stated in the Order ("Initial Term"). The Initial Term shall not commence until PWP accepts the Order from the Customer and until first payment as set out in the Order is made in full by the Customer for Services to be provided during the Initial Term.

At PWP's discretion we may refer overdue payments to our debt collections agency, and in that event an administration charge will be added to the outstanding amount. The value of the administration charge is discretionary, but would be a minimum of 25% of the overdue amount.
Purchase Tax - Purchase Tax - Purchase Tax also known as Value Added Tax (VAT) or IVA is not included within the prices advertised but will be charged by default when you buy in Euros on our Spanish pages.

VAT is not charged by default when you buy in pounds on our English language pages, however if you cannot provide a valid European VAT registration number or if your business is registered within Spain we will need to charge and you will need to pay VAT separately at the prevailing rate in Spain. Currently (21st January 2014) this is 21%.
- Customers who use PWP's Hosting Services (either Website Hosting or Server Hosting) shall at all times comply with and procure that their clients and/or users comply with the terms of the current version of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
- Hardware - PWP's data centre supplier is responsible for the replacement of any hardware components that fail. This includes chassis, PSU, disks, memory and motherboard of the server. The Customer will not be charged for any failure or replacement of hardware. In the case of a hardware fault which results in a server failure PWP's supplier guarantees to replace the faulty hardware within 3 hours of isolating the cause of failure. All of our Servers use RAID disk configuration so in the event of a single disk failure no disruption to service should occur and the replacement would be carried out at a mutually convenient time.
- Connection - PWP's data centre supplier guarantees that all of our UK Servers are within a maximum of twenty milliseconds of 95% of UK residences. Triple redundant uplinks via physically diverse cables into the UK backbone are provided to ensure maximum connectivity uptime. Where the Server's connection is unmetered, we guarantee that the maximum divided by the contention will be available at all times (e.g. 2Mbps in the case of a 10Mbps connection with 5:1 contention). In general, the intention is that an unmetered connection's maximum burst is available at least 80% of the time, and a large contention pool is in place to ensure that.
- Network - PWP endeavours to provide the most reliable network infrastructure possible to its Customers. Our data centre supplier guarantees us that our network will be available 100% of the time, excluding scheduled maintenance, circumstances beyond reasonable control including but not limited to dDoS or other network attacks, upstream or 3rd party network outages, war, fire, flood, sabotage, labour disturbance, acts of government and breaking of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy.
- The Customer agrees that it may be necessary for PWP to Temporarily suspend Services for technical reasons or to maintain the PWP network, the equipment or any other facilities, the timing of which will be as determined by PWP.
- PWP may interrupt the Services at any time for any duration of time, without penalty or liability for any claim by the Customer, where necessary to prevent improper or unlawful use of PWP Services or network.
- A compromised or "hacked" server or hosting account is a serious threat to our network. PWP, at its sole discretion, will take any and all measures to prevent a compromised server or hosting account from doing additional damage to its own systems and files or to the rest of the network. Determination that a server has been compromised: By the Customer - If you believe your system may have been hacked, immediately report the situation to PWP technical support. PWP will examine your system and may implement additional monitoring of your system. If a PWP System Administrator believes a server or hosting account on our network is compromised, PWP will: 1) disconnect the server from the network, 2) contact the client, and 3) provide evidence of the "hacking"
- If Customer breaches any of its obligations under these Terms & Conditions or the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) then PWP may terminate the Customer's Services at any time and without prior notice. In the case of Website or Server Hosting Services, provided that Customer's account is in good standing, that the breach does not constitute a violation of law, and that we are not prevented from doing so by legal injunction, we will provide you with all data previously stored in your hosting account or on your server. Our standard hourly rate will apply for time required to so do.
- Customer acknowledges and agrees that neither PWP nor any of its members, shareholders, directors, officers, employees or representatives will be liable for any special, indirect, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, or damages (including but not limited to damages for loss of profits or savings, loss of data, or loss of use) in connection with these Terms & Conditions. If, despite the foregoing limitations, PWP or any of its shareholders, directors, officers, employees or representatives should become liable to Customer or any other person in connection with this agreement for ANY REASON, then the maximum aggregate liability of PWP, its members, shareholders, directors, officers, employees and representatives for all such things and to all such parties will be limited to the lesser of the actual amount of loss or damage suffered by the claimant or the amount payable by Customer to PWP for the current period of service under these Terms & Conditions.
- Customer will indemnify and save harmless PWP and its members, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, and representatives from and against all damages, losses, costs and expenses (including actual legal fees and costs), fines and liabilities incurred by or awarded, asserted or claimed against PWP or any of its members, shareholders, directors, officers, employees and representatives in connection with Customer's negligence, activities or omissions, or breaches of its obligations under these Terms & Conditions, including claims brought by a person using or relying upon any advice given or publication produced and distributed by Customer.
- Customer acknowledges that it accepts all risk of any unauthorised or illegal use of the PWP network or any inter-connected network by third parties. PWP provides no warranties, makes no representations, and accepts no liability for the unauthorised or illegal access or interference with the Customer's server/network or hosting package unless such access or interference is caused by the intentional unlawful acts of PWP, its agents or employees.
- According to the Order, PWP assigns IP (Internet Protocol) addresses to Customers for their use. Customers have no right to use PWP IP addresses not assigned to them, to move IPs between different servers or account or in ways not permitted by PWP. PWP maintains ownership of all IP addresses that are assigned to Customers and reserves the right to change or remove them at its sole and absolute discretion. Typically, however, these changes are rare and made only at the request of RIPE & ARIN or an upstream provider. PLEASE NOTE: The allocation of IP addresses is restricted by the policies of RIPE & ARIN. These policies now dictate that name-based hosting MUST be used whenever possible. PWP reserves the right to periodically review IP address usage and revoke authorisation to use those IP addresses not being utilised or where name-based hosting could be used.
- These Terms & Conditions shall be governed by the laws of Spain. Any controversy or claim arising out of this agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Barcelona. If any provision of this Agreement is held by any competent authority to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part then the provision shall be deemed to be severable from the remaining provisions and shall not affect their validity or enforceability.
- 24 hour support (for applicable products) is provided via an on call facility. Normally this facility is available with immediate response but it may be necessary to leave a voicemail message which will receive a response as soon as is physically possible.
- We will scan e-mail and attachments passing through our servers for viruses. We will not be liable for direct, special, indirect or consequential damages arising as a result of any virus being passed on.
- We normally retain historic backups in a separate physical location from our production hosting servers. Where backup is offered as part of the specification of the hosting package this is the backup service provided. If you require restoration from backups or disaster recovery testing (recommended) this is charged at our prevailing hourly rates. For your own peace of mind you should retain an independent copy of all data stored on your server or in your hosting account. Guaranteed backups are not included as standard with any hosting package.
We may change our prices from time to time for reasons such as inflation, exchange rate variations, market conditions, improvements to the service etc.
We will advise you in writing in good time of any price changes and price changes will never apply until renewal is due in the case of product-based services (for example website hosting, servers, SERA).
