Software Security and Updates
Please note, as a
continuation of software security, and server updates, dpbuk will periodically
update website and software files to ensure maximum protection to our customers
and their hosting environment. Such updates will be available via customer's
administration area. When updates are installed, then this will revert the files
and scripting back to their original, and installed condition. It is the
responsibility of the customer to ensure that they understand that any amended
files, scripting and content may be removed when updating their software, and
that customers must also make a back up of all amended content, and files, and
subsequently reinstall such scripting, and content once the updates have taken
place, at their own discretion.
Dpbuk will not be
responsible for reinserting, or re-scripting bespoke amendments that the
customer has decided to implement against the original security files. Customers
deciding not to upgrade, will forfeit their right to website and hosting support

purchasing websites that contain populated xml feeds, are understanding that
feeds, by nature, are to be run to a strict and pre-created format, meaning if
the website is altered on the product side, then when the feed is next run, the
original feed structure will overwrite any changes made by the customer on the
products that the company supply the feeds for.
dpbuk will need to flush out the /images folder from all xml populated websites,
and therefore customers are understanding that if they wish to add their own
product ranges, then the /images folder is not to be used to contain such
images, as when dpbuk runs our script to flush images, ALL images will be
removed. This is to ensure fresh content and to remove old images not being
used, to maintain a streamlined service. dpbuk cannot be held responsible for
missing or lost images resulting in the periodic flushing of images that we
supply, when used with the /images folder.
For customers choosing to
purchase the adult website business. It is the customer's responsibility to
ensure that their payment merchant will accept payments for products of an adult
nature. Although this is not generally a problem with Paypal, there are some
products that Paypal will not accept payment for when promoting adult products.
It is the responsibility of the customer to fully research their chosen
merchant, as refunds cannot be made after purchase.

From time to
time, the software which runs the servers we allocate, including the PHP
language becomes redundant, and future (including, but not limited to PHP
security patches) security patches become unavailable. This can, and does render
the software, and whole server unsecured. When this situation arises, dpbuk
reserves the right to charge a disclosed fee for the complete migration,
including all data, and databases, into a new, and secured server, that contain
the mentioned security patches, and their availability. Customers opting not to
agree to the required security updates, and migration, will be asked to
terminate the existing contract. Dpbuk must be in a position, where it can host
a customer's website in secure surroundings; and without receiving required
updates, which will be beyond dpbuk's control, then the 'software/Server
Upgrades' condition, will be immediately brought into effect. Customers are
agreeing to these conditions before any transaction, or website installation

for them whether they be 1 time charges or recurring monthly fees.

otherwise allowed by law) until paid in full and service may be terminated for
non payment after 7 days at dpbuk option. Expenses shall be included on an

not known to dpbuk at the time an invoice is issued may be included on
subsequent invoices. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, the
failure of dpbuk to include earned or incurred Fees or Expenses on a given
invoice shall not relieve Customer of its obligation to pay such Fees or
Expenses. Customer's obligation to pay Fees or Expenses shall survive the

that the second monthly payment taken will be invoiced 7 days in advance, and
then each subsequent monthly payment will be around the same time and date every

timely fashion and without interruption. Customers are accepting this
stipulation of terms when entering into this agreement. Taking this into
account, customers must still send in their recorded cancellation letter 1 month
in advance of the service expirations date should this option be chosen.
dpbuk cannot be held
responsible for the images provided on the website templates. Image licenses
change often, and therefore it is highly advisable that once your website is
installed, that you commission, and locate your own header images for the
templates you decide to use. dpbuk
use a third-party for initial website imagery, and as mentioned licenses for
images change, and therefore, we advise customers to select/purchase their own
images for their templates of choice.

templates, should matters with image licences arise after installation. It is
the customer's responsibility to use licensed images for their template.
Websites/Prices: Demonstration websites/prices are exactly that, and prices
contained on such websites/promotional pages are for demonstration purposes
only, and not a reflection of wholesale prices obtained from dropshippers, or
wholesalers; as pricing can, and does change in the wholesale industry. The only
exception to this, is the example of pricing on the promotional pages, and
although correct at time of writing, cannot be a guaranteed indicator of profits
on individual items.
Security Interest : Customer grants dpbuk a blanket security interest in the
customer . s contract with their customers who are renting servers from them in
the dpbuk data centre in the event of non-payment by customer . customer agrees
that dpbuk may take these customer contracts direct without a tortuous
interference claim to protect the credit balance owed dpbuk by customer and full
ownership of the contracts shall transfer as well if balance is more than 60

installed and made available to customer and shall be for 1 month or pre-agreed
time and shall renew for successive 1 month terms or pre-agreed time until

notice to the other Party, or (ii) the expiration or termination of all
Service(s) set forth in the Statement of Work and all Work Order(s).

monies associated with this will become due, until one months notice is given on
the cancellation of the website - by registered delivery in the form of a
letter. All associated subscriptions will then become the responsibility of the
customer to cancel. The cancellation of paypal subscriptions will NOT become the
responsibility of dpbuk. Any subscription payments received after a cancellation
period, will not be refunded. If we are required to cancel a subscription on a
customer's behalf, then as this takes a physical resource, this will be charged
at £15+VAT. If a subscription is cancelled during the first 12 months , or
second 12 months (if cancellation letter is not received), then any monthly
payments due will be invoiced and collected via our overdue accounts department.
Please also note, that as we are dealing with products which require renewals
within a certain timescale, websites and domain names, all customer
subscriptions, with paypal MUST be live, and not cancelled after a website has
been set up. If a subscription and website has been set up, and then cancelled,
then dpbuk have the right to terminate the website from our server space.
Customers are agreeing to this before commencing with their purchase, and under
this condition no refunds will be given.
It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that all payments, including
credit/debt card payments, and paypal subscriptions are active and live. When
changing credit card details on your paypal account, it is also up to the
responsibility of the customer to immediately contact dpbuk about setting up a
new subscription. If dpbuk receive notification of a subscription failure, then
the website concerned will be terminated inside 3 working days, should a contact
not be made from the customer, concerning setting up a repeat subscription. This
term also applies for credit cards. If no contact is made within 3 working days
of a credit card payment failure, then the customer website will be terminated
from our server space, and domain name left to expire.
In these circumstances, and due to the fact that a cancellation letter not being
