Medical Media cannot guarantee web server security, and cannot be held responsible for any loss, or misuse by third parties, of any data that is captured and/or stored on the web-server, even using SSL encryption. Medical Media will register all clients' websites with some search engines, but cannot guarantee inclusion, and/or rankings within any of these search engines. It is the responsibility of the client to register more regularly if required, unless specified on the order. All prices quoted in any proposal are valid for 28 days from date of proposal. Project timescales quoted are an estimate only and cannot be guaranteed.

Prices do not include any hardware or software that may be required, unless specified on the order, and do not include any visits requested by the client to configure any hardware or software on the clients equipment. The price to purchase fonts specified by the client will be chargeable over and above any contracted development fee.

Medical Media will endeavour to host the website on a 24 hours a day basis, through a partnership with a professional web hosting company, but cannot be held responsible for any downtime of the web server, or other equipment, connected to the Internet, which causes the clients website to be off-line for any reasonable amount of time, or causes loss of revenue on an e-commerce enabled website. This is applicable to website hosting and any email accounts and email forwarding.

The ongoing monthly maintenance and support charges are effective from date of deposit payment. Three months written notice is required to terminate the contract. If the client terminates the contract with Medical Media and requires a copy of the site for future use, then a charge to be negotiated based on site complexity will be incurred by the client.

Domain Names & Hosting

Domain names managed by Medical Media remain the property of the client. The client will appear on the domain registry as the domain owner. If a client cancels a maintenance/services and support contract with Medical Media, the ongoing management of the domain name becomes the clients' responsibility. If the client does not instigate the transfer of the domain to their own control then Medical Media will assume that the client no longer requires the domain name and Medical Media may assume ownership. Any domain names registered on behalf of the client will remain the property of Medical Media unless the client requests in writing that the domain be transferred. Medical Media will then follow the instructions of the client to transfer the domain out. A transfer fee may be required (usually around £50) to cover administration and cover Medical Media costs.

Domains purchased by Medical Media for use in SEO Services will remain the property of Medical Media.

Mailing lists may be operated as long as individuals choose to subscribe to receive mailings via clear 'double opt in' methods and a strict removal procedure is published in all mailings.

Acceptable Usage Policy

It is a requirement of the Medical Media Terms and Conditions that all users of its network or services accept and adhere to Medical Media's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for Internet Access. Medical Media may change this policy to include changes in the law or in the acceptable practice of internet use and reserves the right to make such changes without notice and whenever required. All our users are responsible for ensuring that they have read and understand the current policy.

Compliance with this AUP is a contractual requirement. If you fail to observe the terms of this policy your account or service may be liable to termination or suspension. In the event that an account is suspended, Medical Media may be prepared, at its sole discretion, to restore the account on receipt of a written statement that the user will not commit any further abuse of the service. Any charges to re-instate service will be passed on.

Medical Media's relationship with its clients, its partners and other network providers depends on responsible conduct from all users. MEDICAL MEDIA will not hesitate to protect itself and other clients and networks should any form of abuse be found to be occurring.

Use of Networks and the Internet:

  • Email
  • Web usage
  • Cloud
  • Abuse of Medical Media services

You must not use the service for the transmission of illegal material. The user agrees to refrain from sending or receiving any materials which may be deemed to be offensive, abusive, indecent, hard-core or paedophile pornography, defamatory, obscene, menacing or otherwise as prohibited by current and future statutes in force.

Illegal use also includes where we are unable to provide services which are prohibited by current and future applicable statutes regarding sanctions.

The user agrees to refrain from sending or receiving any material which may be in breach of copyright (including Intellectual Property Rights), confidence, privacy or other rights. If you are in any doubt as to the legality of what you are doing, or propose to do, you should either take independent legal advice or cease that usage.

You should be aware that the storage, distribution of or transmission of illegal materials may lead to investigation and possible prosecution by the relevant authorities.

You must not gain or attempt to gain unauthorised access to any computer systems for any purpose. In addition to being a breach of this AUP, such action may lead to criminal prosecution under the Computer Misuse Act.

You must not send data to the internet using forged addresses or data which is deliberately designed to adversely affect remote machines (including but not limited to denial of service (DDoS), worms and viruses, trojans and ping storms).

You must ensure that local PCs and network connected servers are not configured to allow open relay and must not participate in the sending of unsolicited bulk email (commonly referred to as 'spam' ,'UBE','UCE' ).

You are prohibited from running 'port scanning' or other software intended to probe, scan, test the vulnerability of or access remote systems or networks except in circumstances where the remote user has given express permission for this to be done. Medical Media may ask for evidence of such permission.

You may not divulge your network passwords to third parties and should take all reasonable steps to ensure that such information remains confidential.

Email

Sending and receiving email involves the same responsibilities and approach as would be used when sending or receiving any other form of communication - written or printed mail, fax, telephone call etc. Most users fully understand what would be considered appropriate and acceptable when communicating with others and apply these considerations to their use of email. There are occasions when some users send mail or engage in online communication that others consider unacceptable - generally regarded as abuse by the online community.

If you find it difficult to determine what might be considered 'abuse' with online communication you should realise that, in general terms, anything that might be unacceptable, and possibly illegal, in other forms of communication will be equally unacceptable and possibly illegal online.

You should not send emails that might cause annoyance, inconvenience or anxiety to a recipient. You should not send any emails likely to cause distress or any material which is offensive, indecent, obscene, menacing or in any way unlawful.

You must not use Medical Media mail services or network to send email to any user who does not wish to receive it.

You must not use Medical Media mail services or network to send unsolicited email, in bulk (commonly known as 'spam') or individually.

You must not use Medical Media mail services or network with intent to deprive others of service ('mail bomb').

You must not use false mail headers or alter the headers of mail messages in such a way as to conceal the identity of the sender.

You must not use any email address that you are not authorised to use.

You must ensure that any email servers connected to the Medical Media network and operated by you are not configured to allow 'open relay'. Customers who abuse the Medical Media email service will be notified that their behaviour is unacceptable and may have their accounts suspended, terminated or blocked.

Medical Media reserves the right to restrict or block internet traffic to or from a Customer server, without prior notification, in the event of a failure to abide by the published terms of the Acceptable Use Policy. This may include, but not exclusively, the transmission of unsolicited email or the presence of an open mail relay.

If a customer account or service is suspended or blocked due to abuse, then service may be restored at Medical Media's sole discretion and generally will only be restored on receipt of a written assurance of future compliance with this Policy and on payment of an administrative charge for restoration of service.

Web Usage

Web usage includes the use of web space provided with client accounts, web hosting on Medical Media servers and the use of web services and space on customer colocated servers.

Medical Media cannot and does not proactively monitor content on any web space maintained by customers (whether customer space, web hosted or colocated services) and cannot and does not guarantee that such sites are free of illegal content or other materials that may be considered unacceptable.

You undertake sole responsibility for the content of web pages owned and or operated by you - whether on client pages, web hosted space or collocated servers - within the Medical Media domain or other domains hosted within the Medical Media network. You undertake sole responsibility to ensure that all materials on any web site owned or operated by you contains material that you have created or have permission to use.

You undertake sole responsibility for any dispute involving Copyright or Intellectual Property Rights associated with your site or service.

You must not use your website or web service to promote or distribute any material or content that is illegal (under any current or future legislation). You should be aware that the internet is a global communications network and what may be legal in the UK may be illegal elsewhere and leave you liable to prosecution in another country. Medical Media may undertake investigation of content services if potential abuse is brought to its attention and reserves the right to remove any web page on our servers at any time and for any reason.

Cloud

You may not use any shared system provided by Medical Media in a way that unnecessarily interferes with the normal operation of the shared system, or that consumes a disproportionate share of the resources of the system. For example, we may require you to repair coding abnormalities in your Cloud-hosted code if it unnecessarily conflicts with other Cloud customers' use of the Cloud.

You may not store on or via the service illegal material. You agree to refrain from storing any materials which may be deemed to be offensive, abusive, indecent, hard-core or paedophile pornography, defamatory, obscene, menacing or otherwise as prohibited by current and future statutes in force.
