2. The Parties
2.1 This Agreement is entered into between RockyNordic and the Customer.
3. General Terms and Conditions
3.1 This Agreement enters into force when the Customer or a representative on behalf of the Customer submits an order to RockyNordic.
3.2 Products and services provided by RockyNordic that are not in use or not paid for can and may be used by RockyNordic for a hosted-by-side, unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties.
3.3 RockyNordic is at all times entitled to demand the documentation required by RockyNordic or the Supplier to identify the registrant and/or customer before a change is made to a product.
3.4 Failure by the Customer to respond to requests from RockyNordic may be considered a breach of contract.
3.5 RockyNordic is entitled, if deemed necessary, to temporarily shut down access to any service related to this Agreement in order to perform maintenance or other services related to maintaining the operation of the Customer’s Product. However, RockyNordic shall endeavor to the extent possible to do so at times that are the least inconvenient for all parties. In connection with servicing, RockyNordic must try to complete this as quickly as possible. RockyNordic alone decides whether maintenance or other service in connection with the maintenance of operations is necessary.
3.6 If parts of these Terms are declared invalid, the remaining part of the Terms will still be binding.
3.7 These Terms and Conditions are subject to change. RockyNordic may unilaterally change these Terms. Changes to the agreement will be effective 30 days after publication on RockyNordic’s website. Payment of an invoice constitutes acceptance of the terms and conditions applicable at the time of payment.
3.8 The customer agrees that the production of the product takes place immediately upon the customer’s order.
3.9 As the production of the product is carried out upon ordering or as soon as possible thereafter, there is no right of withdrawal for any products unless specifically stated. No right of withdrawal can ever be granted on domains, as RockyNordic’s cost is binding at the time of ordering.
4.1 No unsolicited mail (SPAM) or other generally unwanted material may be sent from RockyNordic’s systems. Any use of RockyNordic’s products and services must follow RockyNordic’s code of ethics.
4.2 In the event of breach of the Terms, RockyNordic is entitled to immediately and without notice delete the material, suspend the product and, in serious cases, close the product. Any remaining subscription period will not be reimbursed. If transferred data in connection with a product for which free traffic is included does not comply with RockyNordic’s free traffic guidelines, payment may be charged for the transferred traffic.
4.3 RockyNordic reserves full ownership of delivered goods and services until the total amount due has been paid, including shipping costs, interest and other collection costs RockyNordic may have. Ownership shall then pass to the Buyer.
4.4 Shared hosting
4.4.1 It is not acceptable to RockyNordic that the customer operates different websites within the same product, unless otherwise approved in writing by RockyNordic prior to the conclusion of this agreement.
4.4.2 Applications and services operated and executed on the server on which the Customer’s solution is located must not take up a significant part of the server’s resources, as RockyNordic may choose to stop the operation of the said application/service without the Customer’s further approval. It is up to RockyNordic to assess the resource consumption, including stopping the operation of the said application/service and subsequently contacting the customer about this.
4.4.3 It is strongly recommended that web hosting solutions on shared servers are in no way and not used for storage of personal data of any kind, including particularly sensitive personal data. Web hotels are located on shared servers where other customers’ code can compromise the entire server and thus indirectly give rise to cross-site scripting in some cases. If you have not secured your data through proper encryption, this can also give rise to the possibility of hacking websites. RockyNordic cannot and will not be responsible for the placement of such types of data on web hosting solutions and always refer our customers to use a dedicated server solution.
4.5 Dedicated hosting
4.5.1 In the case of dedicated hosting, such as virtual servers, physical servers and colocation, the costs of traffic, power and cooling are always added according to current cost prices plus administration fee/commission.
4.5.2 In the event of any attacks on the systems used by the Customer or other external circumstances over which RockyNordic has no control, RockyNordic is (without obtaining prior approval from the Customer) entitled to invoice time spent to resolve or minimize the extent.
4.6.1 A Product and/or Service may be provided on a traffic usage or free traffic basis.
4.6.2 Free traffic: In connection with products that include free traffic, the traffic must follow normal usage patterns and the following, but not exhaustive, are not allowed: erotic, pornographic, offensive material, illegal material, .mp3 files, webcams, locations where you can download many programs, movies, music or other forms of large amounts of data. Server space may only be used for website operation and receiving e-mails. RockyNordic unilaterally defines which material belongs in the above categories. In case of doubt, material can be presented to RockyNordic, who will be able to inform whether the material is permitted in connection with a RockyNordic product.
5.1 In order to take out a subscription, you must be of legal age.
5.2 RockyNordic reserves the right to reject orders or refuse to extend a subscription and is not obliged to give reasons for this.
5.3 The Customer is obliged to keep RockyNordic informed at all times of its current strain information via the systems that RockyNordic makes available to the Customer. A complete and valid postal address is required and information about a PO box is not sufficient. Failure to notify a change of address may result in the product being suspended and closed, with consequent fees in accordance with RockyNordic’s applicable prices for this, as stated on the company’s website.
5.4 RockyNordic is entitled to terminate a subscription with one month’s notice. If there has been a breach of any of these terms and conditions, RockyNordic is entitled to terminate the subscription with immediate effect. Any remaining period in connection with the termination of a product will not be refunded unless the product has been terminated by RockyNordic and it is subsequently documented that there has been no breach of the terms.
5.5 The subscription period for the selected product is decided by the customer at the conclusion of the transaction and can be freely changed subsequently, within the available subscription periods for the product, but no later than 30 days before the expiry of the subscription period, for activation upon renewal of the subscription.
5.6 Product changes for the next subscription period must be received by RockyNordic no later than 30 days before the end of the current subscription period. For immediate product changes, the following applies: If the product is changed to a more expensive product, the amount will be charged immediately. If the product is changed to a cheaper product, the price difference in the current subscription period will not be reimbursed. The product will automatically be renewed upon expiration unless notice of termination is received no later than 30 days prior to expiration. Domains must be cancelled no later than 60 days prior to expiration.
5.7 Termination of Virtual Servers and VPS units will be subject to 3 months’ notice before the server can be taken down. Final invoicing takes place at notice of termination. If hosting for the server has already been prepaid for a minimum of 3 months prior to the termination notice date, the server will only be taken down and hosting will cease at the end of the prepaid period.
5.8 Refunds will only be paid in cases where a solution has been prepaid and notice of termination of the same has been received before the solution is put into use.
5.9 Cancellations must be made in writing via RockyNordic’s systems.
5.9 Subscription type

6.1 RockyNordic is not and cannot be held responsible if a desired domain name cannot be registered.

6.6 The Registrant shall at all times comply with any ICANN and/or registry rules regarding restrictions or prohibitions on warehousing.
6.7 Some registries require the registrant to sign a paper before the domain can be deleted. This must be done by the registrant and must be done in connection with any termination of the domain at RockyNordic. In this case, the cancellation will not be valid until RockyNordic receives this paper.
6.8 In cases where the customer withholds payment for the domain name, or in cases where payment is withdrawn, RockyNordic has the right to deactivate the domain and transfer ownership of the domain to RockyNordic. Should the original registrant wish to get the domain back, this will cost one consulting hour plus 2 times the price for a domain transfer of the respective type according to RockyNordic’s price list, which must be paid before RockyNordic initiates a transfer back to the original registrant.
6.9 The registrant of one or more gTLDs will not be able to transfer domains to another registrar until 60 days have passed from the creation date and then only via the procedures prescribed by RockyNordic. This rule may also apply to individual ccTLDs. Requests to transfer a domain to another registrar will only be granted if this is done via the methods specified by RockyNordic. RockyNordic has the right to reject re-delegations until all outstanding payments for the domain have been settled. RockyNordic has the right to reject re-delegations in the event that the customer has gone bankrupt.
6.10 Violation of the rules referred to in these terms and conditions will be interpreted as a breach of contract and may result in the blocking of the registrant’s domain name.

Failure to provide RockyNordic, registry or registrar with correct master information within 10 days of being requested by RockyNordic, registry or registrar may result in the closure of the domain.
6.14 RockyNordic has the right to suspend all changes until the registrant has demonstrated that the change is justified.
