1. Description of the Service

1.1       ukmailexchange.com” provides domain name registration and email services. Where a domain name is registered it will be done so with the intended use of email only. A domain name registration will not be necessary where an in-house solution is chosen. The email service provides clients with the ability to send and receive electronic mail ("email") using the Internet, in order to use the mentioned service the client requires an internet connection this is the sole responsibility of the client and not of Surpic.

2. Payment

2.1       All fees are payable to Surpic subject to the following conditions.

2.3       Online Payments. All payments are to be made using the credit card and debit card online facility which operates transactions via a secure server. This purchase will appear on a statement as: UkMail

2.7       Renewals. Surpic will issue renewal reminders by email to its clients prior to the renewal date, although it is the sole responsibility of the client to renew the account.
