OnGrid will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision, and reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site at any time for any reason. All non-acceptable contents may not listed here, and can solely be decided by OnGrid.
(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. Invoices are generated 14 days prior to the Account Activation Date, and payment shall be remitted to OnGrid by no later than the specified payment due date. OnGrid shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client’s failure to make timely payments. Credit cards can billed automatically unless a direct request is made to our Billing team via the OnGrid Lab not to do so, at least 48hours prior to the payment due date. 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 another payment method must be provided within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, can be suspended.
Invoices not paid before or on the due date for each service may incur a late fee of 5% of the total amount due or left unpaid on the invoice
Service Suspension and Termination
Invoices are issued 14 days prior to the applicable due date for each active service.
After the due date is passed without a payment being received and an invoice marked as PAID, a first warning e-mail will be sent.
Failure to pay within 24hours will result in a second and final suspension warning e-mail.
On midnight (IST) of the 3rd day after the due date, services may be suspended at any time, and any payment MUST be communicated to a support agent to avoid suspension. If suspension occurs, a suspension notification is sent via e-mail, at which point full service termination may happen within 48hours of the suspension e-mail.
OnGrid does not guarantee that your service may be recuperated after termination and may not be held liable for loss of data, licensing rights, promotional prices or conditions, as well as any attached devices or secondary IP addresses following service termination.
Certain services carry a setup fee charged by OnGrid 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 OnGrid 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.
Fraud and payment verification
Upon receiving a new customer’s first paid order, OnGrid reserves the right to issue an Order Verification e-mail, requesting further information in order to validate your account. Until all required information is provided and deemed satisfactory by our fraud verification team, no services or support can be provided. The 3 business day delivery guarantee starts after the verification step is passed. Verification is not necessary for all orders, and can only requested on your very first paid order.
Money back guarantee & refund policy
We offer a 30 day Money back policy for undelivered services. This does not apply to purchases made with a discount of 15% or more. These purchases are final, and non refundable. No money back will be provided on Dedicated Servers.
Refunds: If client has retained the services for longer than one month and has pre-paid OnGrid for such services, refunds will not be issued for any unused portion of the lease, as your purchase benefits from a long-term rebate. Therefore, if a client’s account is cancelled at any point during a 3-month, 6-month or one-year term, the client will not be entitled to a refund for the months remaining. No refund provided on Dedicated servers. Also refunds will be provided after deducting the actual cost of free services included with the yearly term (including domain cost, SSL cost, Premium DNS cost and any other premium services included for free in the plan).
We do not offer trial periods of any kind for dedicated services. Abusing our 30 day refund policy in order to test our services then get a refund is not acceptable, and no refunds will be made without proper justification, or failure on OnGrid’s behalf to provide the services purchased.
NB: Adherence to the Priority or VIP support plans is not refundable under any circumstance. We also will not refund services mistakenly purchased in the wrong location; this includes services purchased in a geo-located city as this information is made clearly available for all such cities.
General Refund guidelines
We will not refund or credit under the following circumstances:
• Geo-location or mistake in location
• Failing to ask a question on the nature of our services, or a particular spec or configuration.
• Account termination or suspension due to non-following of our Terms of Service.
• Account termination or suspension due to any kind of illegal activity.
• Changing your mind!
We reserve the final decision on refunds, based on the situation and reason for cancellation. The general rule is, if there is an issue on your service, our staff will dedicate themselves to fixing it. Any delays that prevent you from using your service will be credited, and issues that we are simply unable to solve will be refunded. It is important to note that refund requests based on information that was included in the terms of service or clearly available on our website will always be refused. The best example of this is if you have purchased a service that is geo-located and needed a service that is physically available. Please issue a request to our support staff before making such a purchase, if you are unsure.
About Datacenter locations
While most of our announced locations are where the datacenters are, OnGrid reserves the right to setup a service in a location nearby (in the same country), generally just outside of the city boundaries. You may obtain the exact datacenter location upfront by contacting our support team.
Any account deactivated due to non-payment will require a reactivation fee of ₹1199.00 prior to reactivation.
We DO NOT refund partial monthly fees to accounts. We require a 15 days notice for a cancellation.
Refusal of Service
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion.
