When you sign up for a website we naturally require certain information about you like your name, address and email address. This information is used for the Registrant information when we register your domain name with a Domain name Registrar. By law, all domain names must be registered in the name of an individual and this information is usually accessible to the general public.

Disclosure to Law Enforcement: Our Acceptable Use Policy specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities. You agrees that KamWeb.ca may disclose your subscriber information to a law enforcement agency who makes a legal formal written request without further consent or notification to you. You also agree that KamWeb.ca shall have the right to terminate web-hosting services if your site is found to be conducting illegal activities.

  • Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on my sites.

All provisions of this contract are subject to the Terms of Service of KamWeb.ca and our Acceptable Use Policy. Please note: The Acceptable Use Policy may be changed from time to time at our discretion.

Payment: Establishment of this service is dependent upon receipt by KamWeb.ca of payment of stated charges. Subsequent payments are due on the anniversary date depending on the plan chosen.

Failure to Pay: KamWeb.ca may temporarily deny service or terminate this Agreement upon the failure of Subscriber to pay charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve you of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges, plus reasonable interest and any collection fees.

New Domain Accounts: All new accounts will be registered and entered into our DNS servers within 1-12 hours. Due to Internet propagation, however, under some circumstances, this process may sometimes require up to 72 hours.

Transfer of Domains: New web hosting accounts which involve the transfer of a domain from another provider to KamWeb.ca can require up to 5 or more days to propagate through the Internet (not commonplace, but it can happen). Although domain names usually propagate in 24 hours, due to the unpredictable nature of the transfer process, no guarantees are made regarding the amount of time a specific transfer may take since we have no control over that.

SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email: KamWeb.ca absolutely takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means that customers of KamWeb.ca may not use or permit others to use our servers to transact in UCE. Violations of this policy may result in termination of service.

We cannot be held responsible for suspending or closing your account due to non payment if we are unable contact you. Please add additional contact email addresses via your Personal Control Panel to ensue this does not happen.

You shall not transfer or assign this Agreement without the prior written notification. In other words, we will only speak with the person who's name appears in our records. We will not provide passwords or access to anyone else other than you without your written consent.

KamWeb.ca has an impeccable uptime record to date (99.99%). Notwithstanding, KamWeb.ca does not make implied or written warranties for any of our services. This includes loss of data resulting from delays, loss of revenue, and any and all service interruptions.
