completion. Completion is defined as when both AOK Internet and the client both agree
a website is completed as quoted. On receipt of payment, AOK Internet will publish the
website on the agreed server.
26.18 All of our web design commissions come complete with our “free minor update”
offer. This applies only if we are hosting the website and only if the yearly hosting charge
has been paid for that time period. This “free minor update” offer covers updates to
existing text, images and other small changes to be pre-approved. Any other larger
updates will be competitively quoted for before hand and carried out as per our terms for
standard web design.
26.19 We cannot guarantee when updates that are done for free will be carried out
although we will make every effort that these are done as quickly as possible and usually
within 24 – 48 hours.
26.20 AOK Internet reserves the right to alter prices at any time without notice. If a
client has commissioned any services from AOK Internet prior to a change in prices that
commission will NOT be subject to any increase (this includes web design charges and
hosting fees)
26.21 AOK Internet aim to have 99.9% uptime on our servers but cannot be held
responsible if this is changed due to circumstances beyond our control. We will make all
reasonable efforts to make sure your website is online for as long as possible.

26.22 Any website owner using illegal or unfair techniques to gain visitors to their
websites (spam e-mails or other unauthorised techniques) will not be allowed to host their
website’s on our hosting servers. Any website owners found doing this will have their
website(s) removed for the server and domain name(s) released.
26.23 All our websites come with 1 free .co.uk domain name. Any other top level
domain names will be charged for (fee to be agreed). When the domain name expires (2
years for .co.uk and 1 year for .com) we will automatically renew it for you if we are
hosting your site at no extra charge! This is included in our hosting fee. If we are not
hosting your site we cannot be held responsible for the expiration of domain names
although every effort will be made to renew them in any case.
26.24 All our hosting packages come with a 30 day money back guarantee. The refund
will be made using the same method of payment that was used at the time of purchase.
Domain name registration fees are not covered by this guarantee and are non-refundable.



27 BROADBAND & DIAL-UP

27.1 AOK Internet's Broadband xDSL package speeds are not guaranteed to give the
maximum speed subscribed to and are offered on an "up to" basis of the particular speed
subscribed to because maximum speed is dependant on external factors beyond our
control. We reserve the right to terminate your account (including user name and
password) if any user information is untrue, inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete or you
are any other way in breach of our Terms & Conditions.

27.2 ADSL Availability Checker: Search results shown on our web site are generated
by British Telecommunications plc. No warranty is given by us as to the accuracy of the
search or availability of ADSL broadband. You acknowledge that we accept no
responsibility for any hardware purchased by you where final tests prove unavailability of
ADSL. You acknowledge that prior to proceeding with this application you have used the
ADSL availability checker and received a positive result for the telephone number to be
activated for ADSL and that not doing this will incur an administrative fee equivalent to
10% of your order (based on annual package cost).

27.3 In the event of you using the 0845 facility you understand that the 0845 facility
offers unlimited access dialling a 0845 number metered at local call rate. We reserve the
right, legal or otherwise, to restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to our service for
any reason, including in particular if your use of our service causes or is likely to cause
the whole or part of our service to be interrupted, damaged, rendered less efficient or in
any way impaired or in any way detrimental to other users.

28. FAULTS AND BT ENGINEER APPOINTMENTS

28.1 If you have a fault with your Broadband line, we will carry out diagnostic tests both
on ours and BT's systems. If we receive an indication from BT that a BTOpenreach
engineer is required, we will confirm a suitable date and time frame for an engineer to
visit. If the BTOpenreach Broadband engineer attends but cannot carry out the testing or
you are not home, you will incur a missed/failed appointment charge of £105.00
including VAT.

28.2 If a BTOpenreach Broadband engineer is required to attend your premises to
diagnose and fix a fault with your Broadband, and the fault does not lie on BT Group's
equipment/network you will be charged £180.95 inc VAT for their time. It is vital that
you are sure that your premises' internal wiring is correct and that your modem or router
is not faulty. We will help you check this. AOK, is not liable in any way for this charge.
It is your responsibility to ensure your equipment & extension/internal wiring is in
working order.

28.3 AOK is not in any way liable in Contract or otherwise for any damage or loss caused
by a representative of BTOpenreach whilst attending your premises. Any damage should
be reported to the BTOpenreach engineer whilst he/she is at your premises. Failure to do
so may relinquish any claim you may have against BTOpenreach.
