Remote Backup – Terms of Service

The Service

You will be provided with a Unix filesystem of a certain size for a certain monthly fee, both of which are determined when you become a customer of J-Town Internet Services Ltd. You may cancel at any time for any reason with no penalties or future obligation. Generally, existing payments will not be refunded to you.

In return for these payments, your filesystem and the computer system will have a 99.5% or better period of connectivity to the public Internet measured in one minute intervals.

You agree that the computer system that houses your filesystem will require downtime for consistency checks on rare occasions and that you will generally be given notice prior to this type of maintenance. You agree with the policy of J-Town Internet Services Ltd. to always trade system uptime for data integrity, and agree that extended periods of system downtime on rare occasions are required to ensure data integrity are acceptable, and further, will not be computed into the monthly system uptime percentage.


J-Town Internet Services Ltd. does not examine the contents of customer filesystems.

However, during the course of normal operation and maintenance, certain meta-data such as filenames, directory structures, traffic levels and patterns may be observed.

J-Town Internet Services Ltd. does not store logs of customer activity. Every night all logs are destroyed, and only meta-data related to network traffic is stored.

No form of data or meta-data concerning the behavior of our customers or the contents of their filesystems, or even the customer data that we hold in our records for billing, will ever be divulged to any law enforcement officer or agency without order served directly by a court having jurisdiction.

J-Town recommends that all customers encrypt their sensitive data, and will aid them in doing so as part of routine support.

No consumer or personal information about our customers of any kind will be divulged to any party for any reason.
