It is recommended that our customers archive their emails on a local machine or external hard drive.
Backups are made on a nightly basis and are retained for 24 hours for disaster recovery purposes only. This is intended strictly in the case of emergencies, such as file system failures or mass data loss as a result of a system failure. It is the responsibility of the customer to keep up-to-date archives of their backed up data. Customers can request access to their server accounts at any time while their customer account is active.

Self-Managed Hosting/Support Plan
Our Self-Managed Hosting/Support package includes unlimited troubleshooting. This does not include tutorials, training, re-training, or any services listed in the description for the Managed Hosting/Support package. Troubleshooting means that AmityDEV will fix any errors on your site (if any) or if something on your site isn’t functioning properly or if you need username and password assistance.
Managed Hosting/Support Plan
The Managed Hosting/Support package includes a set number of hours of work on your website per month. There is a minimum contract of 3 months required to use the Managed Hosting/Support plan. This work includes any regular maintenance to your site to keep your site updated, such as adding graphics, updating/adding content, sending a newsletter, adding another product to your e-commerce site, etc. It does not include the cost of new applications or custom application development, such as a shopping cart or photo gallery, or any similar or related dynamic content, applications, or graphic design services. If you require any dynamic content, new application, programming services, or graphic design services, this is considered an “add-on” service and is charged at our regular hourly rate. The time to add these features to your website will be deducted from the set number of hours. The set number of hours does not roll over to the next month. In other words, if the customer does not use the entire number of set hours by the end of the month, then the remaining time is forfeited and the time is reset for the following month. If the customer needs more than the indicated set number of hours, AmityDEV can work with the customer in creating a custom set number of hours per month. If the customer”s work request goes over the set number of hours in his or her monthly hosting/support plan, AmityDEV will contact the customer indicating so BEFORE the work is applied to his or her website. Please note that any extra work exceeding the customer”s set number of hours will be billed at AmityDEV’s regular hourly rate.
The minimum amount of time used to apply changes to the customer’s website is 20 minutes. It may take up to 3 business days for AmityDEV to apply changes to a customer’s website. Prices and details of our hosting/support packages are subject to change.

After the license is renewed, AmityDEV will continue to provide updates to the third party software to the customer’s website.
AmityDEV will update the customer’s third party content management system (CMS) when stable updates are available. From time to time, the third party CMS will introduce a newer version of its CMS in which all older versions require a special procedure to convert it to the newer version. The cost to convert the older version of the CMS to the newer version is the responsibility of the customer. If the customer is using any third party software for the older version of the CMS, this software may or may not be compatible with the newer version of the CMS. The cost to upgrade this software is the responsibility of the customer.
Since AmityDEV sells non-tangible services, once we have received payment from the customer, we are unable to issue refunds. However, we do guaranteed our customers 100% satisfaction. We keep working with you to make sure your project is absolutely how you want it.
