20.6 If any invalid, unenforceable or illegal provision of this Contract would be valid, enforceable and legal if some part of it were deleted, the provision shall apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.
20.7 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
20.8 These Terms and any disputes or claims arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England.
20.9 The parties irrevocably agree that the courts of England have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with these Terms or their subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).

You also agree:
We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site ("contributions"), and to any interactive services associated with it.

Changes to the privacy notice and your duty to inform us of changes
The data protection laws changed on 25th May 2018.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current.
Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications.
Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you.
We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements.
When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.
If you fail to provide data:
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
You may give us your Identity, Contact and Financial Data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, e-mail or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:
Automated technologies or interactions.
As you interact with our website, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns.
Third parties or publicly available sources.
We may receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources as set out below:
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than to respond to an enquiry you make to us via our website where by making the enquiry you consent to us using any personal data provided for the purposes of dealing with and responding to that enquiry, or in relation to sending third party direct marketing communications to you via e-mail or text message.
You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.
Purposes for which we will use your personal data
We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.
Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.
Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising:
Promotional offers from us:
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us or if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition or registered for a promotion and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any company outside of Krystal Hosting for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us at any time.
Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience or other transactions.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
If, in the course of providing the Services, you are a Controller and we are your Processor in respect of any Personal Data, and the United Kingdom is or becomes a “third country” for the purpose of Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679, unless and until such time as the European Commission has decided that the United Kingdom ensures an adequate level of protection for the purposes of Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679, we and you shall, in respect of any transfer of Personal Data subject to Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679 which is neither on the basis of an adequacy decision nor subject to any of the permitted derogations set out in that Chapter V, enter automatically into the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries (controller to processor transfers) approved by the European Commission by Commission Decision 2010/87/EU, currently available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32010D0087
For the purposes of any Standard Contractual Clauses which we enter into with you by virtue of clause 6.3, we are the “data importer” and you are the “data exporter”. We will Process the Personal Data only for the purpose of providing the Services. The Data Subjects are anyone whose Personal Data you include in the data you upload to the Services, most probably your staff or your users, or people linked with your users. The Personal Data transferred, including any special categories of data, are decided solely by you. You confirm that you will inform us prior to any data transfer if you feel that the jurisdiction the data is being transferred to is a jurisdiction where the data subjects’ rights are not enforceable (where rights such as access, rectification and deletion are undermined) and effective legal remedies (particularly in case of access to data by public authorities in the recipient country) are not essentially equivalent. We will also keep this situation under regular review in order to ensure we only transfer data to countries where their laws that impose requirements to disclose personal data to public authorities are limited to what is necessary and proportionate in a democratic society.
If, in the course of providing the Services, you are a Controller and you transfer Personal Data to us as a Controller, and the United Kingdom is or becomes a “third country” for the purpose of Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679, unless and until such time as the European Commission has decided that the United Kingdom ensures an adequate level of protection for the purposes of Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679, we and you shall, in respect of any transfer of Personal Data subject to Chapter V of Regulation 2016/679 which is neither on the basis of an adequacy decision nor subject to any of the permitted derogations set out in that Chapter V, enter automatically into the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data from the Community to third countries (controller to controller transfers) annexed to the European Commission Decision 2004/915/EC (Set II), currently available at: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32004D0915
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.
They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
How long will you use my personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for 6 years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see request erasure below for further information.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.
No fee usually required.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

In this Schedule, unless otherwise provided:
Cloud Hosting - for up to date details please refer to https://krystal.uk/web-hosting.
These are our standard cPanel web hosting packages on our shared servers, suitable for individuals
and small businesses not for the purpose of reselling. All packages include cPanel, free LetsEncrypt
SSL certificates and our other standard suite of features listed on the Cloud Hosting page of our
website. Our packages in this category are named Amethyst, Topaz and Ruby. For an up to date list of the
features and pricing of each package please refer to https://krystal.uk/web-hosting.
Reseller Hosting - for up to date details please refer to https://krystal.uk/reseller-hosting.
Reseller hosting providers buyers with standard cPanel access like shared “Cloud Hosting” packages
but also provides WHM access, this enables the user to create cPanel accounts directly under their
ownership/management. This may be for individuals running multiple websites, web designers that
host multiple websites or indeed those individuals/businesses that wish to sell web hosting
themselves. Our packages in this category are named Unity, Trinity and Infinity. For an up to date list of the
features and pricing of each package please refer to https://krystal.uk/reseller-hosting
Business Hosting - for up to date details please refer to https://krystal.uk/pci-compliant-hosting
Our Business Hosting, or ‘PCI Compliant Hosting’ as it is sometimes referred to, is similar to our
standard Cloud Hosting packages in the sense that they are single cPanel accounts designed for
individuals and businesses. They do offer the ability to host multiple websites, but these are isolated
within a single cPanel account. The main difference of the “Business Hosting” is the fact that they are
hosted on premium servers, with less than 100 users per server. This results in less contention and
overall better stability. Other features not found as part of any of our other packages are as follows:
Onyx WordPress Hosting - for up to date details please refer tohttps://krystal.uk/wordpress-hosting.
Our Onyx WordPress Hosting is unlike any of our other web hosting packages and is not hosted on a
shared server, nor does it come with cPanel. Onyx has been developed in-house and utilises “HA”
technology, which means it is distributed across multiple containers (servers). By design, if a
container fails, the Onyx site remains online due to it being distributed across multiple containers. The
product is designed for those that require the absolute best uptime and a managed platform that
delivers maximum performance so that website owners can focus on running their business.
Where applicable, additional sites can be bolted on to Onyx plans for an extra monthly fee.
The CDN allowance is a technology that pulls static resources from websites, such as images and
other static elements of code such as styling and distributes them across global servers, this speeds
up delivery of these assets to website visitors when they access the website within a web browser.
Our packages in this category are named Personal, Pro, Business, Agency. For an up to date list of
the features and pricing of each package please refer to https://krystal.uk/wordpress-hosting
