Estar Web Design Terms & Conditions
1. COMMENCEMENT, DURATION AND TERMINATION
The agreement shall commence upon acceptance of the application form by the client and shall continue indefinitely thereafter, provided that either party shall be entitled to terminate this agreement (or any specific product applied for) on one calendar month's written notice to the other party to that effect.
2.1.1. All fees payable in terms of this agreement shall be payable in advance. ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall at the beginning of every month withdraw any monthly fees and any other fees payable from the accounts as specified in this agreement and/or invoice the client in respect of the monthly fees and/or any other fees payable in terms of this agreement. In those cases where the relevant application form indicates otherwise, payment shall be made in terms of the application form. 2.2. There shall be no obligation on ESTAR WEB DESIGN to send invoices and/or statements to the client indicating what monthly amounts are due by the client to ESTAR WEB DESIGN. The client shall not be entitled to invoke the defense that the monthly fees payable for services in terms of this agreement have not been paid due to late or non-receipt of monthly invoices and/or statements. 2.3. No set-up fees paid by the client to ESTAR WEB DESIGN in terms of this agreement shall be refundable. 2.4. During the first month of the agreement, the client shall be charged on a pro rata basis for services provided during that month. 2.5. ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall be entitled to increase any charges payable by the client on thirty days notice, which may include e-mail notification. 2.6. The client shall not be entitled to any set-off, discount, refund or other credit in respect of any suspension or interruption of or delay in service, or where in any month the client has utilised less than any minimum bandwidth specified. 2.7. Should the client fail to pay any amount owing to ESTAR WEB DESIGN on due date, ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall be entitled, in its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights which it may have, to cancel this agreement without notice to the client, or to suspend performance of its obligations pending full payment by the client. 2.8. In the event that the client's payment is stopped, unmet by its bank or returned unpaid, ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall be entitled to charge the client a processing fee of R150,00 per failed payment, along with all other fees outstanding and any legal costs incurred. 2.9. In addition to the foregoing, ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall be entitled to charge interest at a rate of 2% per month above the prime bank rate of interest quoted by Nedbank of South Africa on any amounts payable by the client to ESTAR WEB DESIGN and not paid within fourteen days of due date. 2.10. The client shall be liable for any and all expenses incurred by ESTAR WEB DESIGN on an attorney and client scale whether incurred prior to or during institution of legal proceedings or if judgement has been granted, in connection with the satisfaction of such judgement, in regards to the enforcement of this agreement. 2.11. The client agrees that in the event that any amounts are owing to ESTAR WEB DESIGN by the client and ESTAR WEB DESIGN being in possession of any of the client's property, ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall have a bona fide lien over such property and shall have the right to retain such property until all outstanding amounts have been paid to ESTAR WEB DESIGN.
3. MONITORING AND TERMINATION RIGHTS
3.1. The client acknowledges that ESTAR WEB DESIGN has no knowledge of, nor interest in, nor in any way contributes to, nor approves the creation of, the client's content as hosted by ESTAR WEB DESIGN and/or published by the client on the client's web site and/or the client's web server (whether owned by the client or rented from ESTAR WEB DESIGN) and/or published otherwise through use of any of ESTAR WEB DESIGN's products or services and that hosting or publication of certain kinds of content may be offensive, unlawful, in breach of codes of conduct binding on ESTAR WEB DESIGN, violations of legislation (including regulations), violations of the common law generally, and violations of the requirements and rules of any regulatory authority and that hosting and publication of certain kinds of content may cause harm to the name, goodwill and reputation of ESTAR WEB DESIGN, its affiliates, and its business partners. 3.2. Accordingly the client agrees, if ESTAR WEB DESIGN in the exercise of its sole discretion is of the opinion that the client's content is offensive, unlawful, or harmful, as set out above, that ESTAR WEB DESIGN, without derogating from any of its other rights in terms of this agreement, may:
3.2.1. request the client forthwith to remove the offensive, unlawful, or harmful content, as the case may be; or 3.2.2. request the client forthwith to amend or modify the content; or 3.2.3. without notice terminate access to the client's web site and/or the client's server (whether owned by the client or rented from ESTAR WEB DESIGN) and/or suspend or terminate access to ESTAR WEB DESIGN's products or services; or 3.2.4. without notice delete the client's web site from the server; or 3.2.5. without notice remove the client from SMS CONSOLE, the AFRIMARKETER or any other web property owned or administered by ESTAR WEB DESIGN.
3.3. The client agrees that nothing that ESTAR WEB DESIGN does in the performance of its obligations in terms of this agreement or in the carrying on of its business generally shall be construed as an assumption of responsibility or liability by ESTAR WEB DESIGN for the client's content and the publication thereof, whether or not ESTAR WEB DESIGN had knowledge of such content and the client hereby indemnifies ESTAR WEB DESIGN and holds it harmless against any liability and any claims of whatever nature made by any person for any loss or damage suffered arising directly or indirectly from the hosting and/or publication of the client's content as well as any other data of the client. 3.4. ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall use all reasonable endeavours to notify the client of any action taken in terms of clause 3.2 above, but does not warrant that notice shall be given to the client prior to such action being taken.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this agreement or in any addendum or annexure to this agreement, the client shall have no claim against ESTAR WEB DESIGN and the client hereby indemnifies and holds ESTAR WEB DESIGN free from liability in respect of any loss, damage or cost which is indirect, consequential or incidental in nature. 4.3. ESTAR WEB DESIGN reserves the right to take whatever action it deems necessary at any time to preserve the security and reliable operation of the ESTAR WEB DESIGN network and the client undertakes that it will not do or permit anything to be done which will compromise the security of the ESTAR WEB DESIGN network. 4.4. Although ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall use reasonable endeavours to provide disaster recovery, ESTAR WEB DESIGN does not specify any recovery time, nor shall ESTAR WEB DESIGN be liable for any loss or damage of whatever nature incurred or suffered by the client from any cause whatsoever as a result of ESTAR WEB DESIGN's failure to provide, or delay in providing, or providing only partial, disaster recovery. The client is accordingly advised to make back-ups of its data. Nothing contained in this paragraph should be construed as a representation that any back-ups of data implemented by client will be successful or in any way will avoid disaster.
5. MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
ESTAR WEB DESIGN may temporarily suspend its obligations in terms of this agreement in order to service, repair, maintain, upgrade, modify, alter, replace or improve any of ESTAR WEB DESIGN's services. Where the circumstances permit, ESTAR WEB DESIGN shall use its best endeavours to provide prior notice of any such suspension to the client. The client shall not be entitled to any set-off, discount, refund or other credit in respect of any such suspension of service nor in respect of any suspension that is beyond ESTAR WEB DESIGN's control.

6.1. All intellectual property rights vested in or owned by a party or held by a party under any licensing agreement with any independent third party (including, but not limited to, intellectual property rights obtained or developed by a party after commencement of this agreement), shall be and remain the sole property of such party and the relevant licensor's respectively. 6.2.
