Internet Services

Fibre Broadband Access is supplied as a best effort service by the Fibre Line Provider. Warranties on equipment/hardware supplied during the installation are held by the Fibre Line Provider or their chosen Representative and remain their property. In order to use the Fibre Data purchased from ComX Networks a Fibre router/modem is required, this router/modem needs to be purchased by the client. Only approved (ICASA, SABS) hardware is permitted to be used, un-approved hardware connected to the Fibre Line by the client which proves to be interfering/causes damage to the service provided by the Fibre Line Provider/ComX Networks or its infrastructure is not permitted. Any costs which arise due to damage and repairs caused by the connection of un-approved hardware by the client will be for the clients account.

Areas marked as available on the map may not be Fibre ready at your particular address due to a number of factors. Pre-orders do not guarantee that Fibre will be available at your particular address once the planned project has been completed. Should we not be able to proceed with your application we will advise you thereof. Installations are typically completed within +- 30 days, this timeframe is however not guaranteed. ComX Networks only offer Fibre to the Home services through our Fibre Line Providers at this time.

Fibre line installations and connections are subject to an installation and connection fee which is prescribed by the Fibre Line Provider. Additional fees may apply should trenching or additional cabling be required to complete the installation, ComX Networks will make any additional charges known to the client and the client will be required to accept or reject these charges before the order is completed. Please note that should the service be ordered and the incorrect address is supplied, the client will be responsible for all charges relating to the order placed at the incorrect address.

An additional fee may be charged as prescribed by the Fibre Provider for re-grading the speed of a fibre line as well as outdoor transfers (new address) and transfers between Internet Service Providers. Cancellations for fibre lines are only submitted at the end of each month, the cancellation request must be submitted via the Client Control Panel at least 30 calendar days before the cancellation date, the earliest available cancellation date will be shown in the Client Control Panel. Cancellation requests which do not adhere to the 30 calendar day notice requirement are subject to Early Termination Fees which will need to be settled before the cancellation request is processed, this fee is prescribed by the Fibre Line Provider. Transfers between Service Providers are handled in the same manner as a new installation and are typically completed within +- 30 day, this timeframe is however not guaranteed.

An additional fee of up to R2 000.00 may be charged on faults logged which are found to be caused by faulty hardware or user error. This amount will be charged to your account once we are advised of the charges by the Fibre Line Provider.

By completing the order it is deemed that consent has been received from the landlord, owner or body corporate for the installation of the service.

The available capacity on the network is shared between all users of ComX Networks bandwidth. Acceptable Usage Policies are attached to Uncapped Services. Capped services whilst the majority of the time will remain untouched may be shaped or throttled should the demand on the network and available capacity be affected. Capped services will generally receive priority through-put on our network provided there is no rise in demand or extenuating circumstances affecting the performance of the network.

Capped Services

Rollover of Data
Should you not use all of your purchased data within a month (1st to last day of each month); the unused data will carry over to the following month for a period of 3 months. As your data is exhausted the unused data from the oldest months accumulated data will be added to your service. In order to use your rollover you must first deplete your monthly allocation of data, once the monthly allocation is depleted your rollover data will automatically become available.

EXAMPLE
You have not used up all your data for June, July and August. In September you run out of data, we will automatically allocate the unused data from June to your data service first. If you deplete this data too, we will automatically allocate the unused data from July and if you deplete this, we will automatically allocate the data from August. If you reach the end of September and you only needed to use your rollover data from June and July, the unused data from August will be available to use in October.

Rollover of Data is only applicable to services which are paid up to date and are renewed monthly. If your debit order or credit card payment fails for any reason all data that has accumulated will fall away and will not be re-allocated on payment for the service. Should you cancel your service any accumulated data will fall away.

Uncapped Services

Uncapped services are designed and intended for personal use only. The Uncapped Services may not be repackaged/broken down and sold to 3rd parties, may not be used to provide network services like hosting/mail/ftp/backhaul for Wifi/internet cafes and other networks. The use and/or exploitation of our uncapped services for commercial use is strictly prohibited. (We have very competitive Per Gb pricing for commercials).

The Acceptable Use Policy for the Home Uncapped, Premium Uncapped and Premium Plus Uncapped can be found here. By accepting the Terms and Conditions, you also agree to the afore-mentioned AUP.
All uncapped services are billed within a calendar month (1st to last day of every month). Your proof of payment is to reach us before 5pm on the last day of the month to prevent service interruption on the 1st of each month.

Hosting

The ComX Networks Hosting environment is offered without uptime guarantees, unless specifically stated. Local Hosting refers to the physical location, and not the IP traffic and/or network routing. This means that the hosting servers are physically located within the boundaries of South Africa. International Hosting refers to servers physically hosted outside the boundaries of South Africa.

Neither ComX Networks, its employees, affiliates, agents, third party information providers, merchants, licensers or the like, warrant that ComX Networks' Server service will not be interrupted or error free; nor do they make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of the Server service or as to the accuracy, reliability or content of any information service or merchandise contained in or provided through the ComX Networks Server service, unless otherwise expressly stated in this Agreement.

ComX Networks expressly limits its damages to the Client for any non-accessibility time or other down time during the system unavailability. ComX Networks specifically denies any responsibilities for any damages arising as a consequence of such unavailability. The client/user indemnifies ComX Networks against any loss or damage whatsoever, which may arise from the use of any third party software, add-ons or plugins available through our hosting services or platforms.

ComX Networks is not responsible if an external company network and firewall is setup to block access to services ComX Networks provides. If a client's network is setup to block certain ports or web addresses that compromise the services ComX Networks provides it is the client's responsibility to ensure that their network configurations are changed as necessary. ComX Networks endeavours to keep a 5 day backup of the domain, the backup is of the last 5 days content only. It is advised that an off-site back up is kept up to date by the client as the ComX Networks backup cannot be guaranteed.

On application and payment for the transfer of a hosting a service the domain space is reserved on our hosting server. It is the client's responsibility to ensure that the transfer request from ComX Networks is accepted and to advise ComX Networks of any delays. The client will be billed for the reserved hosting space regardless of the domain being transferred or not unless cancelled.

ComX Networks may at times, revise or amend its current Unlimited Web Traffic offerings relating to traffic allocations and disk sizes.

The Acceptable Use Policy can be found here.
By accepting the Terms and Conditions, you also agree to the afore-mentioned AUP.

Cloud Hosting

ComX Networks strictly forbids the creation of nested VM's, or virtual instances within a virtual server. This severely degrades overall performance and will be treated as a violation of our Terms & Conditions (contrary to the intended use of the product).

ComX Networks may also, at its discretion, restrict servers to 200 IOPS (Input Output Operations Per Second) where a client's use of available virtual resources is negatively affecting the overall environment. ComX Networks reserves the right to suggest suitable alternatives to the client and / or charge for excessive traffic as it deems necessary, at its sole discretion.

Cloud Hosting services are fully managed by the client and ComX Networks does not offer any additional support on these services. All changes, backups, additions, updates, monitoring and maintenance are the responsibility of the client who purchased the cloud hosting service.

The Acceptable Use Policy can be found here.
By accepting the Terms and Conditions, you also agree to the afore-mentioned AUP.

Domain Registrations

ComX Networks has not and does not conduct pre-registration searches in respect of the client's use and registration of its selected Domain Name/s and is therefore not obliged to either advise the Domain Name client/client about possible conflicting third party rights or to take steps to ensure against possible disputes concerning a third party's intellectual property or other rights. Domain Names are registered by the respective Registrars on a first come first served basis we are therefore unable to guarantee that the domain name applied for will be available when the instruction is sent to the Registrar. Domain registrations are billed on an annual basis two (2) months in advance e.g. if the original registration date was on the 15th of March 2013 you will be billed your annual registration fee on the 1st of January 2014.

The client acknowledges that the use or registration of the Domain Name by the client must not interfere with nor infringe the rights of any third party in any jurisdiction with respect to trademark, service mark, trade name, company name, close corporation name, copyright nor any other intellectual property right, and that the client has the right to use the Domain Name.

ComX Networks cannot act as an arbiter of disputes arising out of the registration and use of Domain Names. At the same time, the client acknowledges that ComX Networks may be presented with evidence that a Domain Name registered by its client violates the rights of a third party. In such instance ComX Networks shall be allowed to provide a complainant with the client's name and address and all further communication will exclude ComX Networks and ComX Networks will have no further obligations to the client. In such instances the client shall be entitled to continue using the Domain Name registered by ComX Networks until a court or other body with jurisdiction directs otherwise.

ComX Networks will not be liable for any loss or damage, interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including lost profits), regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, delict, or otherwise which may be suffered as a result of or which may be attributable, directly or indirectly, to the use and/or registration of the client's selected domain names/s OR ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ComX Networks IN RESPONSE TO THE ABUSE OF THE DOMAIN REGISTRATION SERVICES WHICH IT OFFERS.

The client hereby indemnifies ComX Networks against any loss whatsoever arising from any dispute or claim or other action occasioned by the client's use and registration of its selected Domain Name, even if ComX Networks has been advised of the possibility of such damages. ComX Networks will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss, damage, cost or expense of any kind, irrespective of how such damage or loss was caused, whether arising under contract, delict or otherwise, including, and not limited to, data loss or corruption, loss of profits, contracts, operation time and goodwill.

Failure to pay the annual renewal fee or failing to respond to a renewal notification from ComX Networks will result in the domain name been deleted which will result in the domain becoming available to the public to register. Additional fees may apply to redeem a domain which has entered the deletion process.

Please note: The free .co.za domain registration is only applicable if you select a domain with a Linux or Windows shared hosting package. This offer does not apply to our parked domain or self managed hosting packages. After 10 months, you will be billed for the annual renewal of your domain, should you decide to retain the domain. Should you wish to cancel or transfer your domain away from ComX Networks during the first 10 months of service, you will be invoiced for the registration originally covered by ComX Networks, the cancellation/transfer will only take place once this invoice has been paid.

Also note that the registration email address will be hosting@comxnetworks.com for the first billing period, where after it will automatically update to the email address from your profile on renewal.
