By using this web site for these or any other purposes, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions, you must refrain from using the web site.

In these Terms and Conditions, WebHost Direct is the trading name of Million Ideas Ltd and or subsidiaries, parent company or associated companies and the Subscriber is any legal person using a WebHost Direct website or purchasing Services from WebHost Direct.


    1. The Subscriber is required to:

      2. Use the Services for lawful purposes only. Transmission or storage of any information, data or material in violation of any New Zealand law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret or other statute. The Subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless WebHost Direct from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the Subscriber or any other parties.
        NOTE: Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on any WebHost Direct server. WebHost Direct will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
        NOTE: Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a WebHost Direct server or using an email address that is maintained on a WebHost Direct machine is STRICTLY prohibited. WebHost Direct will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
      3. Ensure that all information provided to us is current and correct.
      4. Ensure that all people who use the Services provided to the Subscriber or via the Subscriber's account also complies with these Terms and Conditions.
      5. Maintain the confidentiality of the Subscriber's user name, login, password, and any other account information and/or identifier provided to the Subscriber in relation to the Services. The Subscriber accepts complete responsibility for all use of his/her/its account and of the Subscriber's identifier(s), and WebHost Direct is entitled to rely entirely upon use of any password or other identifier as evidence of the Subscriber's identity and authority.
    2. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between WebHost Direct and the Subscriber and it is expressly agreed that there are no other understandings, representations of warranties of any kind (either express or implied) forming part of the contract between WebHost Direct and the Subscriber. In particular:
      1. No condition advised by the Subscriber which is inconsistent with, qualifies, or is contrary to these Terms and Conditions shall have any effect unless that condition is expressly accepted in writing by WebHost Direct.
      2. No variation or waiver of these Terms and Conditions shall have any effect unless accepted in writing by WebHost Direct.
    3. Any Subscriber with access to other networks connected to WebHost Direct must comply with the rules appropriate for that other network.
    4. By using the Services the Subscriber certifies that he or she is at least 18 years of age.


    1. The Subscriber agrees to pay for the Services provided to the Subscriber or under his/her/its account, regardless of whether it is the Subscriber or someone else who uses them.
    2. Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. All payments must be in NZ dollars and withdrawable at a NZ bank. Accounts are in default if payment is not received within 30 days after date of invoice. If a Subscriber's cheque is returned by the bank as unredeemable, the Subscriber will be deemed to be in default, and will be liable for a "returned cheque" charge of $25.00.
    3. Accounts unpaid 30 days after date of invoice may have their service interrupted. Such interruption does not relieve the Subscriber from the obligation to pay the monthly charge. Only a written request to terminate the service relieves the Subscriber of obligation to pay the monthly account charge from the date of such request.
    4. Accounts in default are subject to a late payment charge of $25 and an interest charge of 1.5% per month on the outstanding balance. The Subscriber agrees to pay WebHost Direct its reasonable expenses, including solicitor and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights under these Terms and Conditions.
    5. No deduction or set-off against any amount due is permitted.
    6. WebHost Direct reserves the right to change rates and prices by notifying the Subscriber 15 days in advance of the effective date of the change.
    7. All files, information and mail under the account will be preserved for 15 days from the date the payment is due. If the payment is not received after 15 days, all files, information and mail under the account will be deleted. If the Subscriber wishes to use the service again, the Subscriber must re-apply as a new subscriber. For this, an activation fee will be required.

Use of Accounts

    1. The Subscriber agrees that WebHost Direct has the right to delete all data, files or other information that is stored in the Subscriber's account if the Subscriber's account with WebHost Direct is terminated, for any reason, by either WebHost Direct or the Subscriber.
    2. System accounts cannot be transferred or used by anyone other than the Subscriber.
    3. No more than one login session may be used at any time by the Subscriber or any system account. If the Subscriber has multiple accounts, the Subscriber is limited to one login session per system account at any time. User programs may be run only during login sessions. Accounts which have been transferred to other parties, or show other activity in violation of this paragraph, or paragraph (13) herein, are subject to immediate cancellation.
    4. WebHost Direct exercises no control whatsoever over the content of the information passing through WebHost Direct.


    1. Where the Subscriber is in default or WebHost Direct has reasonable grounds to believe the Subscriber is in default under and provision of these Terms and Conditions, WebHost Direct may suspend or terminate the provision of Services to the Subscriber. If WebHost Direct suspends Services pursuant to this clause, the Subscriber shall be notified as to the reason for the suspension.
    2. The services provided by WebHost Direct may be cancelled at any time by WebHost Direct without penalty provided one month's written notice is given to the subscriber.
    3. The Services provided by WebHost Direct may be cancelled at any time by the Subscriber (unless any other specific additional contract terms have been entered into between the Parties) by giving WebHost Direct at least one month¿s written notice.

Exclusion of Liability

      1. Any defect in the Services or in its maintenance shall not entitle the Subscriber to immediate cancellation of this contract.
      2.

      3. Subject only to WebHost Direct's liability for breach of contract (if any) pursuant to clause 18(b) above, WebHost Direct will not be liable to the Subscriber for any claim for breach of contract, breach of statute or breach of duty in tort (including negligence) or for any claim in equity or otherwise at law for any losses or damages whether general, exemplary, punitive, direct, indirect or consequential (including any claim for loss of profits) however caused which may be suffered or incurred by the Subscriber or any third person or which may arise directly or indirectly out of or in respect of this contractor the services (or its maintenance) or by reason of any act or omission on the part of WebHost Direct to comply with its obligations under this contract.
