8. Back up and Data loss:
ProWeb is intent on providing the best possible service in the most reliable manner. However, we respect the fact that you are the owner of all your own files and data, therefore we consider it to be the customer's responsibility to backup and protect all their own files and data. System failures and service breakdowns are very minimal on our servers; however, we cannot guarantee absolute fidelity due to factors outside our control. We strongly suggest that you backup your files and account data regularly. You can use our control panel to backup and restore your site files and entire hosting account. Even though we from time to time back up our customer's data, ProWeb shall not be responsible for customer's files or data loss.

9. Service interruption:
ProWeb will use its best efforts to maintain a full time internet presence for our Customers. System failures and service breakdowns are very minimal on our servers. However, the network may, at various intervals, be down due to equipment failure, human error, natural disasters or any other force majeure events. In no event shall ProWeb be liable to the Customer for any damages resulting from or related to any failure or delay of ProWeb providing its services under this agreement.

10. Termination & Suspension
If Customer wishes to terminate the services at the end of the payment cycle or any other following renewals, Customer should send ProWeb notice of intent to terminate either by (a) emailing the notice to ProWeb to manager@prowebmalawi.com or (b) calling ProWeb at +265 111 619 817. This notice must be given 21 working days before the due date of the renewal. If Customer fails to notify ProWeb of intent not to renew, service will be deemed renewed by Customer under the Terms and Conditions of this agreement and the then-current ProWeb rates and charges will apply.
