Churches.Hosting is a subsidiary website and owned by RoserNet Website Services (RoserNet) who provides web sites and web hosting to clients worldwide. We have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. All clients of RoserNet are subject to the following terms of service:

Indemnification Policy:
You agree to use all RoserNet services and facilities at your own risk. RoserNet specifically disclaims all warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall RoserNet be liable for any loss, or loss of data, or other commercial damage, including but not limited to special, incidental, consequential or other damages. Customer agrees that it shall defend, indemnify, save and hold RoserNet harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable attorney’s fees asserted against RoserNet, its agents, its customers, officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold by customer, it’s agents, employees or assigns. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless RoserNet against liabilities arising out of any injury to person or property caused by any products sold or otherwise distributed in connection with RoserNet’s server.

RoserNet reserves the right to intervene with any of the sites hosted on its servers in the interest of its customers. Any material supplied by customer infringing or allegedly infringing on the proprietary rights of a third party Copyright infringement any defective products sold to customer from RoserNet’s server. RoserNet shall be the sole judge of what violates this Policy.

At this time we bill monthly and annually, depending upon the plan. If you are not satisfied within your first 45 days we would be happy to provide you with a refund for all but the first month’s rate which covers the domain name fees.
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover Card and checks. For web hosting plans we will set up your account without any paying. Clients are encouraged to pay by credit card as it is the easiest way to handle payment at this time. There are no contract periods but for each successive period, your contract is automatically renewed unless we are notified otherwise.

Late Payments:
All accounts are billed according to the dates they were first activated on. If you will not pay for service renew in 5 days after deactivation, your account will be suspended. If you will not pay for service renew in 30 days after deactivation, your account will be terminated. You will receive an email reminder 5 days till deactivation.

Plans with Update Service:
A page update is anytime that a file is opened, changed and saved on the website to facilitate a client related change. Some examples are adding a sermon and link to the sermon page, adding a calendar event or updating some contact info. It should be noted that images are also files so if we have to change an image size, it is also considered a page update.  We don’t recommend a large number of photo albums that must be updated because quite often the images have to be resized to a small size as well as a large size so a 20 picture photo album would be considered 41 page updates: 20 images times 2 plus putting them and the link on the page.

We cannot perform updates without the proper information.  Exact wording is required as well as any image that is needed.   Information must be sent to us in email form with either the content in the body of the email or an attachment that we can open.  We may correct any glaring typographic errors but depend on the client for grammatically correct content.
The client is liable for any content sent to us to update.  If the content has been plagiarized and not sent with proper referencing, RoserNet  or Churches.Hosting will not be held accountable so please use due diligence in checking for copyrighted material.
