Terms of Service

Australian Internet Solutions/AISweb provides its service to you subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you.

Server Restore - Back Ups

Australian Internet Solutions/AISweb is not responsible for the restoration of data to the server.

It is the clients responsibility to do all back ups of their site.

We strongly recommend that you keep copies of your data off-site for emergency purposes. If hardware failure and data loss occurs, you the client are responsible for data restoration. Australian Internet Solutions/AISweb shall not be liable for loss of data under any circumstances. If, in the unfortunate event, something happens to your files, it is your responsibility to have a local copy of your files. We are NOT held liable in any way for any files, money, time, effort, etc... lost due to this unfortunate event.

Furthermore, if your files are lost, we will attempt to restore them as a gesture of good faith, but make no promises whatsoever about whether the files will be brought back successfully or not. Again, back ups are the client's responsibility.

Hacking events

Hacking of websites, usually by autonomous malware is an increasing problem.

Since 2014 there has been big increase in malware/hacking attacks on websites. As a company we now spend many hours investigating and de-hacking our clients' websites.

Each attack is different and time spent can vary. To be fair to all customers, AISweb will charge a fixed fee of $66 (one hour) for investigation and removal of hacked files.

Prevention is better than cure !

* Run AntiMalware checks on your computer regularly.

* Use strong passwords - change them often.

* Never open an email attachment unless you know the sender.

* Make sure your Joomla or Wordpress is the very latest version.

* Make sure any software plug-ins are the very latest versions.
