Customer Responsibilities

Account Management

Updating Account Information

Personal and Contact Information

Customers are responsible for ensuring that their personal and contact information, including names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers, are kept up-to-date within their QuickHostUK account. This is crucial for maintaining effective communication, ensuring timely support, and facilitating account verification processes.

Prompt Updates Required

It is the customer’s responsibility to promptly update their account information in the event of any changes.

QuickHostUK relies on accurate customer information to provide notices, billing invoices, and important account-related updates.

Consequences of Outdated Information

We provide easy-to-follow instructions and support to assist customers in updating their information as needed.

Customers are responsible for managing access to their QuickHostUK accounts. This includes creating strong passwords, managing user permissions, and ensuring that access is revoked when no longer needed.

Data Management

Customers must manage the data stored within their hosting environment. This includes adhering to data protection laws, implementing data encryption as necessary, and performing regular backups to prevent data loss.

Application Security

Customers are responsible for securing any applications they install or develop on their hosting space. This includes keeping software up to date, managing application-level access controls, and implementing security measures relevant to the applications in use.

Compliance

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that their use of QuickHostUK services complies with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies. This includes data protection regulations, copyright laws, and any sector-specific legal requirements.
