Free WordPress Website With Hosting Promotion Terms of Service

If you do not agree with these Terms of Service, do not complete the Subscription or Website Activation and On-Boarding process.

These Terms of Service, including Legal Notices and Privacy Policy, contain the entire terms and conditions that apply to your use of SPC International Online, Inc.’s (hereinafter referred to as "SPC") Free WordPress Website With Hosting Promotion, (hereinafter referred to as "Free Website").

These Terms of Service may be modified from time to time without notice.

These Terms of Service supersede any prior Terms of Service. The current version applies to your use of the Free Website both now and previously.

Free Website for Paid Subscribers

  1. During the term of this promotion, SPC will build and host one Free Website for each active IT Business Builder Paid Subscription in good standing at our currently published subscription rates as documented at http://www.spc-intl.com/signup/why-upgrade. Once you take advantage of this special offer by completing the new subscription process; or by upgrading your existing Free or Paid Subscription to our currently published subscription rates, you can initiate your Free Website On-Boarding Process from within your SPC IT Business Builder Account Profile Page.

Themes and Plugins

  1. As this is a free hosted solution; and in order to provide the highest availability, reduce trouble tickets and centrally manage all subscription sites as efficiently as possible, we restrict certain rights and functionality, including Theme changes and adding or removing our certified plugins. As a courtesy, and only when specifically requested by a partner, we will install 3rd party plugins that have been tested and certiified by the author to work with the most current version of WordPress to our Free Hosted Websites, but are not responsible for any damage or loss of functionality to any site caused by completely new or different plugins than those originally deployed with our Free Hosted Website.
  2. Should you decide to purchase your Free Hosted Website outright and migrate it to a host of your choosing, it will be provided to you with all administrative rights and functionality. Please click here for more information and current pricing.

Hosting and Backup

  1. Once you take advantage of this special offer, SPC will host your Free Website at no charge as long as you maintain an active, Paid Subscription in good standing at our currently published subscription rates as documented at http://www.spc-intl.com/signup/why-upgrade. You cannot migrate your Free Website to another host with this special bundled SPC IT Business Builder Subscription offer, but you do have the option to purchase your WordPress Website directly at any time and then migrate it to a host of your choice. Please click here for more information and current pricing.
  2. Included with your Free Website are weekly backups of your site via SPC’s GoDaddy hosting service. This free benefit is provided as-is and SPC is not responsible for the integrity or recoverability of your site after deployment, and SPC will not be held liable for data loss of any kind. Each weekly backup overwrites the prior backup, so only 1 backup of your site is available at any given time. Requests to restore your site from the last backup can be submitted at http://support.spc-intl.com, and we will make a best-effort attempt to restore your site (restores can be entire site only).

IT Business Builder Paid Subscription

  1. SPC’s IT Business Builder Paid Subscriptions are month-to-month with no long-term commitment, and you may cancel your subscription at any time. If your Paid Subscription is cancelled; or we are not able to receive payment for your subscription within 7 days of its due date, in addition to the activities documented under the Cancellation section of SPC's Terms of Service, your Free Website will be deleted and unrecoverable from our hosting systems.
