Traffic Usage
All account plans come with a predetermined amount of traffic allowance. We monitor all accounts and will suspend until next month your account if traffic exceeds purchased amount.

All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of Hightek-Designs.com must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.

Billing
By the Account Activation Date of each month, Hightek-Designs.com shall either: (1) debit the client's credit card (when such information has been provided by the client); or (2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. When an invoice is delivered to the client, payment shall be remitted to Hightek-Designs.com by no later than the specified payment due date. Hightek-Designs.com shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client's failure to make timely payments. You will be provided with an invoice on a monthly basis. All credit cards are billed automatically on a monthly basis. It is the client's responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point we will need to be provided with another credit card account number within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account will be suspended. Any bad check received by Hightek Designs will be subjected to a $75 fee plus any bank charges given to us.

Service Fees
Certain services carry a set-up fee charged by Hightek-Designs.com to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to Hightek-Designs.com and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the client provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the client will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded. If client has retained the services for one year and has pre-paid Hightek-Designs.com for such services, refunds will be issued for any unused full month of the services, upon client's request. Therefore, if client's account is canceled at any point during the one-year term, client will be entitled to a refund for the months remaining, after notice given by the 25th day of the preceding month.

Account Deactivations
Any account deactivated due to non-payment will require a reactivation fee of $20.00 prior to reactivation.

Spamming: Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet.

A charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Futhermore Hightek-Designs.com reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $100.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should Hightek-Designs.com choose to pursue and prosecute. Sending more then 1000 e-mails a day slows down the server and is considered to be spamming. If we find that you are sending more then 1000 e-mails a day we will suspend your account without notice and will not issue a refund. Each e-mail sent past the 1000 mark will be considered spam and will charge you $100.00 per e-mail.
