1. Introduction
Oregon's Best Internet Services (OBIS) provides its Internet services, as they may exist from time to time (Services), to users who pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Services (Members) as well as to those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts (Visitors). By establishing an account or using the Services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement and to use the Services in compliance with this Agreement, OBIS's Acceptable Use Policy, and other policies that may apply by utilizing any service provided by OBIS or its upstream network providers.

By accessing and using the Domain Hosting, co-location and electronic commerce services and associated software of OBIS, you (Customer) indicate the acceptance of the following terms and conditions and you agree to be bound by them. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE OBIS Domain Hosting AND ELECTRONIC COMMERCE SERVICES or associated software and promptly return any materials distributed directly by OBIS.
2. The Agreement
This agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between you and OBIS with respect to the OBIS Domain Hosting and electronic commerce services and associated software and SUPERSEDES ANY PROPOSAL OR PRIOR AGREEMENT, oral or written, and any other communications relating to the subject matter of this agreement.

Now, therefore, in consideration of the mutual covenants set forth herein, OBIS and Customer agree as follows:
  • All orders are subject to acceptance by OBIS. An order will be deemed accepted by OBIS when OBIS sends written confirmation of the order to Customer.
  • OBIS shall charge Customer's credit card for the applicable set-up fees and monthly fees according to the Package(s) (as defined on our webpage) selected by Customer and provided by OBIS. Such fees and charges shall include, without limitation, the fees for connectivity, design services, and charges by any and all third parties whose materials are included as part of the Package(s). OBIS reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees or charges and institute new fees and charges upon prior notice to Customer.

    Customer may elect to pay by either check or credit card. If by credit card Customer must provide OBIS with a credit card authorization form and valid credit card number to which OBIS will automatically charge all OBIS fees as they become due. All monthly fees and set-up fees shall be due in advance of the month incurred and all additional charges shall be due at the end of the month in which such charges are incurred.

    Except as provided in Section 3, the set-up fees are nonrefundable and OBIS does not issue pro rata refunds for fees paid in advance. If payment by Customer's credit card is denied, or Customer's charge is returned to OBIS for any reason, including charge back or Customer otherwise fails to make any payments owing to OBIS, OBIS may, at OBIS's discretion, suspend or terminate access to the OBIS Services and/or terminate this Agreement.

    Customer's rights to use the OBIS Services are subject to any limits established by OBIS or by the issuer of Customer's credit card. Interest charges of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law if lower than 1.5% per month) will accrue daily on any unpaid balance, which is more than thirty (30) days overdue. Customer shall be responsible for any and all taxes related to this Agreement.
3. OBIS Services
During the term of this Agreement, OBIS may provide software services to Customer depending on the Package(s) accepted by Customer. "Package" means one of OBIS business and/or electronic commerce service offerings, as can be found on OBIS's Web site at www.oregonsbest.com. The specific Package to be provided to Customer shall be established by correspondence between OBIS and Customer. Such Package(s) shall be deemed incorporated by reference into this Agreement, as if fully set forth herein. OBIS and Customer shall retain copies of such Package(s) for future reference.

At Customer's request, OBIS will acquire an Internet Second-Level Domain Name from the Contracted Registrar on behalf of Customer. Customer's request for and/or acceptance of a Domain Name obtained by OBIS shall in all cases constitute Customer's waiver of any and all claims which Customer may have, or which may later arise, against OBIS or its third party providers, for any and all damages, losses, claims or expenses arising or related to the acquisition, registration and/or use of the Domain Name. Any cost incurred by OBIS to obtain and/or maintain the Domain Name on behalf of Customer shall be charged to Customer. Request for and acceptance of a domain name requires OBIS to supply the domain name to the Contracted Registrar, which in turns supplies the Domain Name to third parties.
4. Limited 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
OBIS offers a thirty (30) day money back guarantee on each Package(s). If Customer is not completely satisfied with the OBIS Services provided under such Package(s) within the first thirty (30) days, Customer may cancel this Agreement by notifying OBIS by following the contact information listed in Section 8. In such case, Customer will receive a full refund of any amounts paid pursuant to this Agreement, except for set-up fees, which are nonrefundable.
