Your agreement with Webiconic commences from the time that your service is added to the servers and/or network and is specified as the commencement date on your first invoice and continues until either party terminates the agreement.
Upon termination or expiry of this agreement, we may delete all of your data from any of our web hosting servers.
We will provide you with a username and password which will provide access to your Webiconic web site and utilities.

If scheduled maintenance requires the service to be offline for more than 30 minutes, 48 hours notice will be given to the contact email address nominated by the client as being the primary point of contact.
Unscheduled maintenance may need to be performed. If unscheduled maintenance leaves our service offline for more than 1 hour, we will publish details of the event on our website forum after the maintenance has been completed.
