Boring Legalese That Makes Our Business Better
Please read this page carefully prior to ordering services from us, and make sure you understand what it says. It’s a binding contract between Aeronautic Vigilante, and you.

If you have any questions about what you see on this page, please feel free to contact us by opening a ticket through our Support Center at aeronauticvigilante.com/support.
The Services We Provide
In exchange for the fees you pay in advance, we will host your website on one or more of our servers, so long as you abide by the terms and conditions that are set out on this page, and in any other agreements that relate to the services we may provide to you. We will provide the services according to the specifications listed for the hosting package you select during the sign-up process. For clarity, on this page, the term “services” refers to the web hosting services that we will provide to you. The term “Aeronautic Vigilante” or “us” or “we” refers to Aeronautic Vigilante.
Permission to Host Your Content
For us to host your website, it is necessary for you to upload your content to our servers. When you do this uploading, you are creating one or more copies of your content on our system. By purchasing hosting services from us, you acknowledge that these copies are being made, and give us the permission (a license) to maintain and/or to backup, these copies and make them available to users of the Internet. You are solely responsible for providing all of the content and other data that make up your website.
When the Services Will be Available
We will attempt to provide the services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for as long as you have paid for them. Sometimes, however, for a number of reasons, the services may be unavailable to you. You must recognize and acknowledge that due to the nature of web hosting technology, occasional unavailability of the services cannot be avoided. We have not promised to provide you with uninterrupted service. Sometimes there are equipment malfunctions. At other times we undertake periodic maintenance procedures or repairs. Still other times, there are causes beyond our control like power failures, interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks, network traffic, natural disasters and other occurrences. All services are currently covered by a Service Level Agreement, referred as the “SLA” for guaranteed protection. Our Service Level Agreement (SLA) is published on the web at aeronauticvigilante.com/service-level-agreement
Free Technical Support
Aeronautic Vigilante’s Free Technical Support is limited to issues that are directly related to your Web Hosting Account. Aeronautic Vigilante does not provide website maintenance services in respect of any Hosted Website. Without limiting this exclusion, you also agree that Aeronautic Vigilante accepts no responsibility for any deficiency or inaccuracy in any of your Hosted Website that is attributable to defects in your website and/or database caused due to errors or mistakes in development/coding/programming.
You further acknowledge that Aeronautic Vigilante’s Technical Support does not include the maintenance of other direct or indirect issues/problems (but not limited to) such as HTML coding, Website Programming, Content/Data Migration, Uploading or Downloading of files for you, troubleshooting your website and/or database, addingnew files to your website and configuring scripts in any way whatsoever. For this there will be an additional cost which is not covered within your web hosting plan/package.
During National Holidays and during some occasional Local Holidays, our technical support will be limited. During this time, we will be still able to provide you with Basic Non-Technical Support via Ticket. There will be lesser staffs attending to your issues so we hope you would excuse the possible delay on our support only during that day. For Urgent Queries or Technical Support you can continue to submit tickets via Aeronautic Vigilante’s Support system at aeronauticvigilante.com/support.
When the Services Will be Available
Aeronautic Vigilante does not offer redundant or mirrored backups. Aeronautic Vigilante will run cPanel Backups (daily & weekly) at our discretion. By purchasing our hosting services, you give us the permission to move your website(s) cPanel backups to cloud file storage services such as Amazon S3 and/or any other cloud storage providers. Any backups that Aeronautic Vigilante runs are in addition to our Terms of Service and are not guaranteed. You may create your own backup of your account from your control panel however these may only be stored for up to 2 days. Our backups are intended as a convenience service and are not guaranteed or intended to replace your website backup procedures. It is your sole responsibility to ensure you have a backup of all your important data. Please download backups to a local source and remove them from your account. Aeronautic Vigilante recommends that you store such archives off site on your external storage system or on your personal computer.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
As we explain in this paragraph, we offer only one hosting plan through which you can host a website and multiple sub-domains with cPanel access. If you need to cancel the service or require money back you need to submit a ticket within 14 days after your account is activated. If we receive your cancellation request after 14 days, the service cannot be canceled and the service will continue to remain active for the entire duration until the end of the plan’s billing cycle.
Our billing system is designed to automatically generate an invoice 14 days prior to the renewal date. If you do not want to renew, please be sure to inform our billing department at billing (at) aeronauticvigilante.com requesting to cancel at least 5 days before the expiry date. Once the invoice is paid your account will be automatically renewed for a new term. The renewal fee will become non-refundable as soon as it is charged.
If more than 7 days pass from the date on which any invoice for the hosting services is issued to you and we have not received payment in full, we will suspend your account, which means that your data and website will not be available. If in the following 30 days you pay all amounts due, bringing your account up to date, we will take your account out of suspension and the data will be available again. If, however, 30 days pass from the date on which your account is suspended and you have not made payment in full, Aeronautic Vigilante shall have the right to delete all website(s) data and website(s) backups. You hereby acknowledge that this is Aeronautic Vigilante’s policy when it comes to data retention, and waive all rights in and to your data in these situations.

Understanding what is Unlimited Bandwidth, Disk Usage, Email and FTP accounts and other Unlimited Resources.
Aeronautic Vigilante provides Users with bandwidth, disk space and other resources, such as e-mail, mysql databases, and/or file-transfer-protocol (“FTP”) accounts, the amount of which is defined in Aeronautic Vigilante’s web pages describing the package of Services purchased at the time of purchase. In some cases, Aeronautic Vigilante may not establish a specific amount of bandwidth, disk space and other resources, and refer to that as “Unlimited”. In all cases, the Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. Aeronautic Vigilante reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of disk space, bandwidth or other resources results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of disk space, bandwidth or other resources included in the User’s plan. User agrees that such usage shall not exceed the amounts set by Aeronautic Vigilante for the Services purchased (the “Agreed Usage”) and is additionally subject to normal usage guidelines established by Aeronautic Vigilante as in effect from time to time. These allotments are optimized and dedicated towards serving the Content and User’s active electronic mail services related solely to User’s web hosting account(s) with Aeronautic Vigilante.
Hosting space is intended for normal use only, and is limited to Web files, active e-mail and content of the hosted Web sites, not for storage (whether of media, e-mails, or other data). Hosting space further may not be used as offsite storage of electronic files, electronic mail or FTP hosts. You are responsible for removing any files, e-mails or other data which do not meet these requirements, and for adhering to any usage requirements or limits allocated to your account(s). Failure to do so may result in removal and deletion of such materials (including without limitation files and e-mails), and/or in discontinuation of your services or account, which actions we may take in our sole discretion.
Aeronautic Vigilante may monitor User’s use of bandwidth, disk usage and other resources. Aeronautic Vigilante, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to take any corrective action if User’s utilization of bandwidth, disk usage or other resources exceeds the Agreed Usage, or normal usage by our typical shared hosting customer, resource usage, or is used for other improper storage or usage. Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, removal or deletion of User’s Web site, User Content, User’s electronic mail and e-mail services and/or other materials and services or termination the User’s account and of this Agreement, which actions may be taken in Aeronautic Vigilante’s sole and absolute discretion.
Unlimited domains refers to subdomains and parked domains. In all cases (even those described as “unlimited”), the Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. Aeronautic Vigilante reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of unlimited subdomains and parked domains results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of domains included in the User’s plan. User agrees that such usage shall not exceed the amounts set by Aeronautic Vigilante for the Services purchased (the “Agreed Usage”) and is additionally subject to normal usage guidelines established by Aeronautic Vigilante as in effect from time to time. These allotments are optimized and dedicated towards serving the Content and User’s active electronic mail services related solely to User’s web hosting account(s) with Aeronautic Vigilante.
User is responsible for complying with any usage requirements or limits for bandwidth, disk space or other resources, and monitoring such usage to ensure the Web site does not violate such requirements or exceed normal usage limits, Agreed Usage, or other limits allocated for the account(s) and otherwise complies with this Agreement. Aeronautic Vigilante will use commercially reasonable efforts to e-mail Users who are at or near their utilization limits, but Aeronautic Vigilante does not take responsibility if e-mail notification(s) is not received by the User. Aeronautic Vigilante reserves the right to discontinue service through the beginning of the next month for your account in the event that it exceeds the any such allotment.
If Aeronautic Vigilante takes any such corrective action under this section, User shall not be entitled to a refund or credit of any fees paid prior to such action.
Disproportionate Server Loads
While our shared services are suitable for personal or small business customers, there comes a time for some websites when they are better suited for a larger plan, which allows for more dedicated CPU and memory resources. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue service to any customer with a website or other hosted data that takes up server resources over 20%, longer than 90 seconds in any consecutive 6 hour period. This means that if your website is found to be utilizing more resources of the CPU and/or memory of our server, we reserve the right to take your site offline. Due to the severity of this, and our ability to act quickly to correct these situations to avoid server issues, we will do everything reasonably feasible to provide you with a warning prior to taking your site offline, but we accept no obligation to do so.
INODES (File Usage)
Soft Limit: 100,000 inode ~ Hard Limit: 250,000 inode
We will not provide services to use more than 250,000 inodes per cPanel hosting account. cPanel accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit will automatically be removed from our daily backup system this is done in order to prevent file system damage and cPanel backup files that were already uploaded to Amazon S3 will be deleted. Exceeding 250,000 inodes the cPanel account will be Permanently Suspended (without notice), the restoration fees is $25 USD per cPanel account.
By default, all cPanel hosting accounts have a “File Usage” limit, this is also known as the inode limit. We place file limits on cPanel accounts to keep our systems up and running optimally. Hosting a large number of files on a shared web server can cause issues for the server’s file system and also adversely affect the performance of the backup system when it comes to both backing up and restoring data.
The file count includes all files, and folders on your webspace. You can view your current file usage by logging into cPanel and looking under the “Statistics” heading down the side of the page, look for the reading indicated as “File Usage”. Every file (a webpage, image file, folder, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode. Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files and folders, and cause file system damage will be permanently suspended.
Preventative or Corrective Action
However, in accordance with our Terms of Service, we may remove any materials that, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject us to liability, or which may violate this Fair Use Policy. Aeronautic Vigilante may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third
parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrongdoing.
Aeronautic Vigilante reserves the right to take reasonable preventative or corrective action to ensure that compliance with its Fair Use Policy is adhered to by all users of the service. Your violation of this Fair Use Policy may result in the suspension or immediate termination of your account or other services WITHOUT ANY PRIOR NOTICE. Acceptance and adherence to the Aeronautic Vigilante’s Fair Use Policy (FUP) is a part of the Aeronautic Vigilante’s Terms of Service (TOS) to which each user of the service has agreed to.
If you have any questions about this Fair Use Policy, please contact us by opening a ticket through our Support Center at aeronauticvigilante.com/support.

Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

When the user signs up for these particular services, we may share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These third parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
In the event Aeronautic Vigilante goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via email & prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the business transition, the users’ personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will be given choice consistent with our notification of changes section.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our order form has an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don’t want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware thatAeronautic Vigilante, is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Aeronautic Vigilante takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users’ information is protected.
Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, behind a locked cage in a locked facility.
Supplementation of Information
In order for Aeronautic Vigilante to properly fulfill its obligation to users it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
In order for this Web site to enhance its ability to tailor the site to a user’s preference, we combine information about the purchasing habits of users with similar information from our partners to create a personalized user profile.
We purchase third party marketing data and add it to our existing user database to better target our advertising and provide pertinent offers we think our users would be interested in. We use this information to enhance or overlay the ‘profile’ of individual users. This aggregate marketing data is therefore tied to the users’ personally identifiable information.
Updating/Deleting Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users’ personally identifiable information. This can be done by the user logging in to his/her personal members area.
Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
Whew. That wasn’t so bad, right?
