AltME World Hosting Agreement
This Agreement defines the terms and conditions for AltME World Hosting
Services ("Service") between you ("Customer") and SafeWorlds, Inc.
("SafeWorlds"), a California corporation.
SafeWorlds may update and change this agreement from time to time
without notice to Customer. You can find the most recent version of this
hosting agreement on our website at
For this document, a "World" is defined as an instance of an AltME
Server that is compatible with the AltME client application and
accessible across the Internet.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, SafeWorlds will host Customer's
AltME World on our secure server, including maintaining and updating the
necessary server software.
The Customer may create individual user accounts for their World, up to
the limit specified for the payment provided. SafeWorlds may strictly
enforce this limitation, but failure to do so does not, in any way,
waive this limitation.
As part of this agreement, SafeWorlds will reserve the Customer's World
name solely for use with this World. If this agreement is terminated,
the World name will be released for reuse unless registered separately
Under this agreement, SafeWorlds does not provide backup services of
Customer's World or any related data. (Note that each AltME client
stores copies of the World data, which act as a virtual backup method
should anything happen). At most, SafeWorlds will restore the Customer's
World server to its original (empty) condition.
Due to the design of the Internet, SafeWorlds World services may
experience outages (loss of connections) from time to time. Such
outages, which may be caused by routing, backbone, or other
infrastructure service failures, are normally beyond the control of
SafeWorlds. Customer will not hold SafeWorlds responsible for times when
the Internet or their World is unavailable.
The Customer agrees to use the AltME software according to its license
and conditions as provided separately with that software.
The Customer is responsible for the usage and content of their World.
The Customer agrees to abide by all local and International laws with
regard to the use of their World. Conduct that violates the law,
regulation, or the accepted norms of the Internet community, whether or
not expressly mentioned here, can result in the termination of this
The Customer is responsible for the administration of user accounts for
their World. Upon initial World activation, the Customer agrees to
immediately change their master account password. The Customer will use
adequately secure passwords for all users accounts. Unauthorized access
to Customer's World caused by password cracking (guessing) is the
responsibility of the Customer.
SafeWorlds respects the privacy of its Customers and does not monitor
the content of files associated with Customer Worlds. SafeWorlds privacy
policy can be found on our website at http://www.altme.com/privacy.html
SafeWorlds reserves the right to cooperate with appropriate law
enforcement authorities in an investigation, which may include any and
all data and records associated with the Customer's World.
The amount paid for services depends on the number of user accounts
created in the Customer's World. If the number of users increases above
the purchased amount, the Customer will be sent an email notice
regarding an increase in the service fee.
If the Customer requested monthly payments, the Customer's credit card
will be automatically charged every 30 days. The Customer will be
notified 15 days prior to the charge. The Customer is responsible for
updating credit card information if account numbers or expiration dates
SafeWorlds will notify the Customer at the email address provided at the
time of sign up if a credit card is refused for any reason. Customer is
responsible for having a valid email address on file with SafeWorlds at
Accounts not brought current within seven days of past due date are
subject to suspension. Service fees continue to accrue during periods of
suspension. A suspended World may be restored once payment is received,
including a late fee of $10 US. If payment becomes 30 days past due,
SafeWorlds may permanently discontinue services and release the World's
name (if not separately reserved by Customer).
If the annual payment option was chosen, and the Customer terminates the
service early, any refund will be prorated based on the current monthly
Customer agrees to indemnify and hold SafeWorlds and its subsidiaries,
affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and
employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable
attorneys' fees, made by Customer or any third party due to or arising
out of the services or software.
SafeWorlds is not liable to Customer for any consequential, special,
incidental, or indirect damages of any kind arising out of the delivery,
performance, or use of this Service or its software, even if SafeWorlds
has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
SafeWorlds’s liability, for any claim related to this Service or
Software, whether in contract, tort, or any other theory of liability
will not exceed the monthly hosting fees paid by Customer.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Service and software is
provided "as is" without warranty of any kind, either express or
implied, including, without limitation, the implied warranties of
merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or noninfringement.
Except to the extent local law provides otherwise, this Agreement is
governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A. This Agreement
is not governed by the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods.
If any provision of this agreement is held to be unenforceable, the
remainder of the agreement shall not be affected, and the unenforceable
provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make the
Customers located outside the United States agree that this Agreement
and all related documentation is and will be in the English language.
