You agree to indemnify us against any costs or expenses (including but not limited to our time and our legal expenses) we may have to bear as a result of your misuse of The Service.
  8. We agree to be bound by our Privacy Policy (http://2-minute-website.com/legal/privacy_policy.html) in dealing with your personal information.
  9. Domain names cannot be changed once they have been registered. This includes errors of spelling. It is your responsibility to ensure your chosen domain name is spelled correctly before it is registered.
  10. Your use of The Service is solely at your own risk. The Service is provided on an "as is", "as available" basis. We make no warranty for The Service, express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Our maximum liability to you shall be the amount which you have previously paid us to operate The Service.

  11. We cannot guarantee uninterrupted availability. Although we will make every reasonable effort to keep The Service operational, it may become unavailable without warning at any time.
  12. The Service is not a high-bandwidth service. If your web pages consume a disproportionate amount of bandwidth compared to the web pages of other users of The Service, we may take any steps we deem appropriate to reduce your bandwidth consumption, for the benefit of all our customers.
  13. If any part of this agreement is held to be invalid or unenforcable in whole or in part, the invalid or unenforcable wording shall be deemed to be omitted.
  14. Any notice to be given under this agreement shall only be deemed to be served if delivered by hand or sent by pre-paid post, by fax or e-mail, to the party to whom it is given at its last known postal or e-mail address or fax number. The notice will be effective: if delivered, on delivery; if sent by fax or e-mail, when the sender receives confirmation of receipt; and if sent by post, on the fourth day after posting.
  15. If our automatic payment systems make a error in pricing your subscription, we reserve the right to charge you the price that should have been charged. If this happens we will also give you the option to cancel.
  16. You need to be aware that, under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, you do not have an automatic right to cancel your website subscription. This is because our service begins as soon as you have made your payment, and because your domain name is completely personalised to you.
