Please use it at your own risk.

If your domain name is not renewed the client will get a 30-day cooling-off period in which to renew after which any party can re-register the domain name.
3.7. Uptime of 99.7% is guaranteed and any network or power outage that exceeds this over the course of 30 days will be redeemable in form of a partial refund.
3.8. We will terminate any service that is 4 days overdue on payment. We do keep backups for all game servers and web hosting, so in most cases your server can still be restored after the 4 days.
4.1. All game server(s)/dedicated server(s) are paid for in advance. Failure to keep up monthly payments on your server can result in suspension and, ultimately, deletion of your game server(s).
4.2. If you decide to cancel a subscription with us, please also remember to cancel your PayPal subscription, which in some cases does not auto-cancel. GTXGaming can refund all overpayments if the subscription cancellation script fails.
4.3. Should you need to raise a PayPal dispute, the suspension of your service may need to be implemented whilst the investigation is progressing.
4.4. GTXGaming retains no personal credit or debit card details.
4.5. A monthly order counts as 30 days, and GTXGaming provides a cooling-off period of 24 hours; if the service is somehow not right for you, we can refund you (excluding dedicated servers which we cannot refund unless there are hardware issues). After the 24 hours cooling-off period, refunds can be denied unless a manager feels a refund is justified. We always try to be fair in refund decisions, so give us as much information as possible.
4.6. Due to price fluctuations caused by currency exchange rate changes, or price increases, or decreases for any reason, upgrades and downgrades are calculated using the latest price listed on our website; upgrades or downgrades done at any time are calculated based on today's prices for any given service.

4.9.2. Cancellations before the end of the contract will cause the discount (5% Monthly, 10% Semi-Annually, 15% Annually) to be rescinded and added to the total cost of the server. Domains renewed cannot be refunded as we pay Nominet the instant a domain is renewed.
4.9.3. We refuse to pay out affiliate payments to sites hosting coupon codes. Coupon sites often use out-of-date coupons. Therefore we find they only waste our customers time, and we ask you to refrain from adding us to any coupon or discount sites.
5.1. GTXGaming support staff are here to assist you. They will do their utmost to help within the confines of the support service guidelines (sometimes a little more). Please treat them with respect, it's much harder to fix an issue with overly abusive individuals. Under that kind of pressure, it's hard to help to the best of our ability. In the unlikely event they cannot help you they may be able to point you in the direction of information that you can then research yourself.
5.2. GTXGaming will contact you via your email to inform you of any downtime or maintenance required on your server. Please also note that there are scheduled restarts of our machines once a week although we do perform this at times of least use, normally 6 am, and they will be down only for the time it takes to reboot. Servers will restart automatically.
6. Hardware and backups
6.1. Not all hardware is created equal and there will, inevitably, be some failures. GTXGaming has offsite backup stores and backups are performed at regular intervals. To help protect your files auto backup systems are in place and can be retrieved after a hardware failure.
6.2. There are script functions coded by GTXGaming in your control panel that you can use to manually back up your files or you can store your worlds locally with FTP access. GTXGaming cannot be held responsible for the loss or corruption of your files although GTXGaming will do everything possible to recover data in the unlikely event of a failure. GTXGaming also advises local backups.
7.1. GTXGaming's de-branding is free and will remain free.
7.2. GTXGaming.co.uk may occasionally send you relevant promotional material to your email address if you have opted in to marketing emails. You may stop these by replying back with "Unsubscribe" in the subject and main text. If you opt-out of marketing emails, you will not receive competition emails or notifications of new games available.
7.3. Affiliates proving traffic referrals to GTXGaming's website must be providing some form of value to the visitors of their site. For instance, a coupon site with incorrect or out-of-date coupons provides no value and only wastes the time of a user. Similarly, a site that lists us with no particular information of value is also not providing value to a user. Therefore we reserve the right not to pay out these types of affiliate links. If you want to know if your site meets our criteria, please open a support ticket.
