This website hosting agreement has been written for use by web hosting service providers. The terms of this document govern the provision of web hosting services to customers. Fees and payment terms should be detailed in the schedules provided. The main part of the agreement contains only the essential elements. Personal data relating to the personnel of the parties shall also be exchanged when using this Agreement. A general data protection clause has been inserted regarding each party`s compliance with the law and its data protection policies. The hosting agreement is suitable for customers who are businesses; it is not suitable for consumer contracts. For example, this contract can be used by a web designer who provides hosting services with respect to websites created for customers. NB Where the service provider resells hosting services that are ultimately provided by a third party, the service provider must ensure that all relevant provisions of its agreement with that third party are taken into account in its customer agreements. This site hosting agreement has been updated with a number of new provisions. Where possible, existing provisions have been streamlined to facilitate the use of the document.
New provisions have been added, including those relating to the processing of personal data, general data protection, security of network and information systems and acceptance testing (which take place before the “live classification” of the site). The GDPR and the 2018 Data Protection Act will be addressed in this proposal, in particular through an optional data processing clause. This provision assumes that the customer is the data controller and the host of the data processors. Please also note that the data processing rules contained in this document have been designed to ensure a fair balance between coverage, detail and brevity. In some cases, further details may be desirable and, in this case, a separate processing agreement is available. An optional alternative to the data processing clause in its entirety is included in this document, which concerns a separate processing agreement. In case of doubt, it is first necessary to obtain appropriate legal advice. The data processing clause of the agreement has been updated to take into account the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation, which will enter into force in May 2018. This hosting contract assumes that the client has no FTP or other access to the web server. Details are the key to a document like this. The host must know exactly what he is contractually obliged to provide to the customer as part of his hosting service and under what conditions. Service levels also play an important role.
A separate hosting specification and details on the applicable hosting service levels should therefore be agreed between the host and the customer and included in the schedule provided. The Host generally undertakes to maintain the public availability of the Site(s) but does not guarantee this. There is no service level agreement. The service levels covered by this document remain open to you, the end user, to define and define them in the schedule provided. Another web hosting service agreement is available, with a more prescriptive approach. Before the site is live capable, the client must provide the host with all the materials necessary for the host to configure the site and prepare it for testing. The exact details of the test (and the retest in case of error) must be agreed between the client and the host and then detailed in the schedule provided….
