Spam Policy

WP Shifu is committed to a strict anti-spamming policy. Under this policy, we prohibit spam, or any unsolicited commercial email, from being sent either: Over the WP Shifu network, by clients or any other users of the WP Shifu network (including the Client’s customers); and/or over ANY network – if the message sent advertises or mentions a site hosted on the WP Shifu network.

We react quickly and seriously to violations, and we further reserve the right to terminate the services of any client disregarding this policy. Sending unsolicited commercial email (a.k.a. “spam”), cross-posting messages to a large number of USENET groups, posting obscene or threatening messages while using or referring to an email address or website URL on WP Shifu’s network is prohibited. The use of WP Shifu’s network as a mail drop for responses to activities described above is also prohibited. If you have any complaints or comments regarding spam on our network, please email at support@wpshifu.io.

Note: WP Shifu explicitly reserves its right to act in accordance with this policy in all instances. However, we will generally not suspend an account due to a single violation. In general, we will first attempt to work with you to resolve the situation. If problems persist or there is no cooperation, the account may be suspended. As a web host, we understand you may not have control of all your users/clients, and we are more than happy to work with you as long as you are cooperative. We give all clients the right to defend themselves before accounts are permanently suspended or charged the specified clean-up fees. 

System and Network Security

System or network security violations are strictly prohibited and may result in criminal and civil liability. WP Shifu investigates all incidents involving such violations and will cooperate with law enforcement if a criminal violation is suspected.

Examples of system or network security violations include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Introduction of malicious programs into the network or server (example: viruses, worms, Trojan Horses and other executables intended to inflict harm);
  • Effecting security breaches or disruptions of Internet communication and/or connectivity. Security breaches include, but are not limited to, accessing data of which the Client is not an intended recipient or logging into a server or account that the Client is not expressly authorized to access. For purposes of this Section, “disruption” includes, but is not limited to, port scans, ping flooding, email-bombing, packet spoofing, I.P. spoofing, and forged routing information;
  • Executing any form of network activity that will intercept data not intended for the Client’s server;
  • Circumventing user authentication or security of any host, network, or account;
  • Interfering with or denying service to any user other than the Client’s host (example: denial of service attack or distributed denial of service attack);
  • Using any program script/command, or sending messages of any kind, designed to interfere with or to disable a user’s terminal session, via any means, locally or via the Internet.

Inadequate security, insecure/unpatched software, insecure passwords, etc., are not the responsibility of WP Shifu. The Client is responsible for assuring that their account is as secure as possible, and the account holder accepts all responsibility for actions taken using their allocated resources, whether they are authorized or not. 

Payment Policies, Fees, Refunds, and Terms of Agreement

Full payment is required before any service is rendered, which includes renewals. All payment-due notices will be sent by electronic mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax unless requested and agreed upon in writing before service is rendered. Prepayment is due each anniversary (one month, one year, or other agreed upon period) following the date the account was established. Billing will continue automatically and indefinitely until you cancel your account. As a policy, we do not offer credits or refunds for time already expended or on any company-issued credit, such as a free month of maintenance or support. Credit cards may be billed up to seven days in advance of the due date to assure that service will not be affected if there is a problem with the credit card. 

We do not give refunds of any kind if the services are partially or fully unused, and billing is only done on full month or annual terms. If you decide to cancel after prepayment, you will not receive a refund for the current term in use. Additional features can be added at any time. WP Shifu reserves the right to change prices at any time but will notify all active clients via electronic mail before such changes take place.

On the due date, we will attempt to charge any credit card on file set as a default payment method automatically up to 7 days before the due date. After the due date, there is a three-day grace period to fully pay the invoice, with an overdue notice being emailed every day. If payment is not made or other adequate arrangements put in place, the account (including all paid services on the account) may be suspended after the third day of non-payment. The Client is fully responsible for making sure payment is made in a timely manner and is fully responsible for keeping accurate billing information on file.

Client Information

It is the Client’s responsibility to assure that the complete contact and billing information on-hand is up-to-date and accurate, including full mailing address and a list of authorized contacts. WP Shifu will contact users via the email addresses and/or phone numbers entered by the user and will not be held responsible for the accuracy of this information. WP Shifu provides a direct way for all users to verify this information through the control panel. Support services are only rendered to those users whose information is on file as an authorized contact on the account. For a detailed record of the personal information we store, please view our Privacy Policy. You may also request to update, receive or remove your personal data at any time.

If data loss occurs due to a failure on WP Shifu’s part, we take reasonable action to recover the data in-house at no charge to the Client. If data loss occurs due to the Client’s negligence in securing their account, by an action of the Client, or any actions not under the direct control of WP Shifu, WP Shifu will have no liability.

Non-Solicitation

WP Shifu and its subcontractors have strict Non-Compete clauses in place with our employees, former employees, dedicated developers, independent contractors, and consultants with which we work and may assist us in providing your contracted Services.

In the event of a violation of this Section, you agree that WP Shifu is entitled to liquidated damages equal to the compensation paid by WP Shifu or subcontractors to the applicable Person during the prior 12 months.

Dedicated Services Vacation Policy

WP Shifu has an untracked vacation policy for employees and independent contractors, subject to WP Shifu’s approval. If an employee or independent contractor schedules vacation time or any other planned absence, the employee or independent contractor and/or WP Shifu will notify the Client in writing to plan accordingly. WP Shifu will provide as much notice as reasonable under the circumstances.
