SlothHost Terms of Service (Updated 04/25/2020)
Definitions and Clauses
SlothHost, LLC (“SlothHost”) agrees to furnish services to the Subscriber, subject to the following (“Terms of Service”).
SlothHost, LLC, the company hereafter referred to as, (“SlothHost”), any of its subsidiaries, (“Us”), (“We”) and The Client, (“Customer”), (“Client”) and (“You”).
SlothHost.com, the website of aforementioned company, will be referenced as “Site”.
Use of SlothHost Service constitutes acceptance and agreement to AUP (“Acceptable Use Policy”) and ToS (“Terms of Service”).
All provisions of this contract are subject to change from time to time at the discretion of SlothHost without notice. Subscriber understands that change to the ToS by SlothHost shall not be grounds for early contract termination or non-payment.
By accepting these terms you indicate that you also agree to the Minecraft End User License Agreement.
The Site is intended for users who are at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use or register for the Site.
Piracy, the term used and defined as the act of stealing computer software that is protected under law. SlothHost adds to this definition of the usage of pirated clients seeking connection to our servers.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site (or any portion thereof).
You may be required to register with the Site. You agree to keep your password confidential and will be responsible for all use of your account and password. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
Official SlothHost support may only be done via official channels, such as our Ticketing System, Official Discord server, and via Twitter Private Messages. SlothHost reserves the right to deny support to users that promote piracy, threats, violations of Minecraft EULA, and others. SlothHost may bar you from accessing support channels, and may offer a involuntary termination of services.
SlothHost officially only offers support in English.
Disputes, Payments, and Refusal of Service
We accept the following forms of payment:
- American Express
Servers are eligible for full refunds within seventy-two (72) hours of the creation of the server in our database. This point is not marked by the time at which your initial payment is processed and may differ by several hours or days. Refunds are subject to a "refund fee" if SlothHost staff agree. All completed server upgrade orders are final and not refundable. In agreeing to this Terms of Service you affirm that your order begins within a 7 day “cooling-off” period, and we reserve the right to charge for the time utilized on your service prior to your cancellation.
The Company attempts to run a transaction against your stored payment method, or subscription ten (10) business days before the invoice due date.
We refuse the right to disallow services from any individual. Refusal of services is based on company decisions, and information from 3rd parties may help us with this decision.
We may require additional information in order to process any refunds. After receiving a refund request, we will reach out via e-mail to confirm. If a confirmation is not received, we are not responsible for any subsequent charges or late issuance of the refund.
The client will have the option to specify an immediate service cancellation or a cancellation at the end of the billing period for the service in question. Immediate cancellations are permanent and cannot be aborted. Immediate cancellations will be terminated immediately and all data will be destroyed. A cancellation request does not guarantee a refund – a refund must be explicitly requested and is subject to our Refunds and Disputes policies.
Service cancellations must be placed via the Request Cancellation area in our Billing Panel. Cancellation requests may also be submitted to [email protected] via the email address registered to your SlothHost account, or via our Discord server.
Billing, Late Fees, and Collections
An invoice will be added to your account 14 days before your server is set to be renewed. You will receive an email reminding you to pay your invoice 7 days prior to the due date. After your invoice is overdue by 1 day your server will be suspended and your service will be considered expired. You will then also be reminded via email of your service being overdue on day 3 and day 6 after the invoices due date. Seven days after your service has expired your service will be terminated and all data will be destroyed.
All late payments may be subject to a $3.00 USD fee.
Refusal of payment from clients in a contractual agreement with terms longer than three months may be subject to collection attempts.
THE SITE IS PROVIDED ON AN AS-IS AND AS-AVAILABLE BASIS. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND OUR SERVICES WILL BE AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE AND YOUR USE THEREOF, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

WE DO NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE ADVERTISED OR OFFERED BY A THIRD PARTY THROUGH THE SITE, ANY HYPERLINKED WEBSITE, OR ANY WEBSITE OR MOBILE APPLICATION FEATURED IN ANY BANNER OR OTHER ADVERTISING, AND WE WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO OR IN ANY WAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. AS WITH THE PURCHASE OF A PRODUCT OR SERVICE THROUGH ANY MEDIUM OR IN ANY ENVIRONMENT, YOU SHOULD USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT AND EXERCISE CAUTION WHERE APPROPRIATE.
Limitations of Liability
IN NO EVENT WILL WE OR OUR DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFIT, LOST REVENUE, LOSS OF DATA, OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SITE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
