To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will FSHOST, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers or licensors be liable to any person for (a): any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, cover or consequential damages (including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, revenue, sales, goodwill, use of content, impact on business, business interruption, loss of anticipated savings, loss of business opportunity) however caused, under any theory of liability, including, without limitation, contract, tort, warranty, breach of statutory duty, negligence or otherwise, even if FSHOST has been advised as to the possibility of such damages or could have foreseen such damages. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the aggregate liability of FSHOST and its affiliates, officers, employees, agents, suppliers and licensors, relating to the services will be limited to an amount greater of one pound or any amounts actually paid in cash by you to FSHOST for the prior one month period prior to the first event or occurrence giving rise to such liability. The limitations and exclusions also apply if this remedy does not fully compensate you for any losses or fails of its essential purpose.
All rights and restrictions contained in this Agreement may be exercised and shall be applicable and binding only to the extent that they do not violate any applicable laws and are intended to be limited to the extent necessary so that they will not render this Agreement illegal, invalid or unenforceable. If any provision or portion of any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, it is the intention of the parties that the remaining provisions or portions thereof shall constitute their agreement with respect to the subject matter hereof, and all such remaining provisions or portions thereof shall remain in full force and effect.
8. Changes and amendments
We reserve the right to modify this Agreement or its policies relating to the Website or Services at any time, effective upon posting of an updated version of this Agreement on the Website. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. Continued use of the Website after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.
9. FSHOST Free
Things to follow when using our free servers
- Do not remove the advertisement from the hostname or any other place.
- Do not idle on your server to keep it online.
Any servers found to be online for more than 3 hours with players idling (not moving for a period of time), will be stopped. We will try to check you're not actively playing first before stopping your server.
Users found to be repeatedly violating these terms will have their accounts blocked.
10. FSHOST Pro
Billing and Top-ups
We only charge for running servers, "running" is defined as servers in their "Started", not "Stopped" state. There are no auto recurring payment options, so please make sure to keep your account topped up with enough balance to pay for whatever servers you want running within the month.
While we do not charge for stopped servers, we still have to be careful about port allocation and data storage. Most companies will charge for stopped servers for this very reason. We offer a grace period to allow you to keep your server stopped for a generous amount of time.
Once your server is stopped, you will receive these emails to warn you about server deletion;
- First warning - after two (2) months.
- Second warning - one (1) week after first warning.
- Third warning - one (1) day after second warning.
Tip: Starting your server will reset the deletion timer.
Files and Backups
We perform file clean up tasks on our servers with these timeframes;
- CoD4 screenshots - after seven (7) days.
- CoD4 demos - after thirty (30) days.
- CS:GO demos - after sixty (60) days.
We perform backups of these files;
- Valheim worlds - every thirty (30) minutes.
You are responsible for downloading and keeping backups of your demos or screenshots taken on your server(s).
While you may think these are harmless, they're damaging for any business, especially for a non-profit like us. As a result of this, for each chargeback, we will deduct the fee and €15 EUR from your account. You should contact us directly to sort out any issues with a payment.
