Before we begin
For the benefit of all of our customers, we have a few rules and regulations regarding our services. It is important that you follow them, so we’ve tried to make them as clear, short and easy-to-read as possible. For the purpose of this document, “your service” and similar terms refer to any service held by you, rented from us. “We” refers to us; The Tech Centre Network LTD.
If you have any confusion after reading our Terms of Service, feel free to contact support and request clarification on any one of these points. While we will try to give reasonable notice for major changes to this document, this isn’t always possible – so check back frequently for updates.
Last Revision: 20th of May 2021
Updated our Refund Policy from 12 hours to 24 hours.

We reserve the right to cancel, suspend or terminate any service provided with or without a refund or notice or warning for any reason. We also reserve the right to modify our Terms of Service at any time with or without informing the client. It is up to the client to periodically familiarize themselves with the recent Terms of Service. If any client does not comply with the new Terms of Service modifications, their service will be terminated at our discretion.
Please use common sense. If you think something you’re doing could get you into trouble, it probably will.
We reserve the right to terminate any service at any time without possibility of refund. Hopefully we won’t have to.

Terms and conditions
Your account is your account. Don’t share your account details.
Please open a ticket if you’d like to be able to give friends access to your game panel, their own account can be created.
Failure to report account breaches may result in suspension or termination of services.
As we have rules preventing you from sharing your account, we assume that any use of your service to violate these rules was done by you, therefore it will be you and your service that will be penalised.
Furthermore, don’t use your service to exploit flaws in our software or hardware, or the software or hardware of other internet services.
Services are not activated until the first payment is received.
If you don’t renew your service before it expires, you have a one (1) day grace period in which you can pay the invoice for overdue services without disruption or penalty. Beyond this period, your service will be suspended until it’s paid for.
After thirty (30) days, without payment, your service will be terminated, thus deleting your files from our servers.
Any chargebacks or payment disputes will result in immediate account suspension. Please contact support if you have a problem, we are willing to help sort things out.
We offer the ability to set up scheduled payments for the purpose of automatically adding credit to your account at your specified frequency. If you choose to schedule any automatic payments (e.g PayPal subscription) these are associated with your account and not any individual service.
Account credit is non-refundable and non-withdrawable.
REFUNDS & DISPUTES
All refund requests must be made via a ticket on our website.
When requesting a refund, you must be logged into your client account.
If you are not logged into your client account when submitting the ticket we cannot accept it as a refund request.
If this occurs, our support team will ask you to login and submit the request. We are willing to grant 48 hours from the time of our request for you to login and request a refund.
When logging in and opening your new request, you will need to reference the original ticket ID from the ticket you created while not logged in (this is only required if your initial 72 hour period has passed).
Failure to provide the ticket ID will mean we are unable to locate your original request – we will not grant any additional time in this case.
The following services are not eligible for a refund: Minecraft Reseller
If a Server Management request has been fulfilled for the client, we cannot issue a refund for this addon or any related service.
If a Fast-Track ticket has received a reply, we cannot refund the payment for upgrading this ticket to Fast-Track.
A payment made for the renewal of a service cannot be refunded.
If the client opens a dispute, we reserve the right to suspend any and all of the client’s services.
All refunds will be provided as credit or via the original payment method at our discretion.
If the client has opened any disputes on any transaction, refunds will only be provided at our discretion, and not in accordance with our refund policy.
When a refund is issued, any related services will be terminated.
24 Hour Refund Policy (Money Back Guarantee)
Subject to the conditions below, we can provide a refund within the first 24 hours of ordering a new service – all we ask is that you tell us why you wish to cancel your service and receive a refund.
Each client is only eligible to claim our 24 Hour Refund Policy once.
Refunds for services are available within the first 24 hours of a monthly plan commencing – please contact support to request a refund. Beyond this period, refunds are given solely at our discretion.
All refund requests must be submitted via a cancellation request on our website. The 24 hours is counted from the time of order to the time the cancellation is submitted.
The client may be asked why they wish to receive a refund before a refund is issued, in which our team may offer assistance to resolve the issue the client is experiencing. If there is no response from the client within 12 hours of any of our messages, eligibility to claim the 24 hour refund will be lost.
The client must provide a reason for the refund request, however the reason provided will not affect eligibility.
The client will be asked for confirmation on their refund request before a refund is issued. If the client fails to make a confirmation within 24 hours of our request to do so, eligibility to claim the 24 hour refund will be lost.
Our 72 hour refund policy only covers the first 24 hours after a new plan commences. Payments made for the renewal of services are not eligible for our 72 Hour Refund Policy.
Opening a dispute on any of your payments will void eligibility for our 24 Hour Refund Policy.
Our 24 hour money back guarantee only covers a single transaction per client account.
If the client retracts the refund request or states that they do not confirm the refund, the request will become void. A new refund request can be submitted after this point, but will be treated as a new request and will only be eligible if 24 hours from the client’s order has not passed.
If a Server Management request is fulfilled, eligibility for the 24 hour refund immediately becomes void.
Any client found to be creating multiple accounts in order to claim the 24 hour refund multiple times will be denied a refund.
OVERPAYMENTS AND ACCIDENTAL PAYMENTS
We understand that overpayments and accidental payments sometimes occur and are willing to work with you to resolve the issue.
A payment made by the user is not an “accidental” payment, and a refund of this type is subject to the conditions under the “Refunds & Disputes” section of this page.
An “accidental” payment is a payment that was made manually by the client that was not due. For example, if the client had completed their payment multiple times. Payments of this type will be referred to as an “overpayment” from here on.
An overpayment occurs when an invoice is paid multiple times – when this occurs, credit with the value of the overpayment is added to the client’s account.
Refunds can be offered for overpayments under the following conditions:
The refund request is made within a reasonable timeframe of the payment being sent. Payments via PayPal and other payment processors restrict the time frame a refund can be issued. For this reason, we ask that your request is made within 7 days to give us plenty of time to issue the refund. If the refund request if made beyond this point, we cannot guarantee we will be able to issue it.
Our system automatically adds overpayments to your account credit – if any of this credit is used before a refund is issued, a refund cannot be issued.
If there are multiple overpayments, only payments made within the past 30 days at the time the ticket is handled can be issued. This is why we ask that you open a ticket with the request as soon as possible.
The credit is unused and remains in the client’s account.
When requesting a refund for an overpayment, please ensure you let us know the PayPal email used to make the overpayment, or the equivalent information for the payment method used to locate the payment, as well as the date the payment was completed.
If you do not wish to continue your service, you will need to submit a cancellation for the service from the The Tech Centre client area. You may contact our support if you require assistance with this.
You may also wish to cancel any PayPal subscriptions you may have activated for your account. As The Tech Centre does not have access to the client’s PayPal account we cannot and will not be responsible for incidental payments made from using the automatic payment subscription service.
Affiliate withdrawals can only be made to your The Tech Centre credit balance or an external withdrawal via PayPal.
Withdrawals via PayPal are subject to a 10% withdrawal fee.
Withdrawals to your The Tech Centre credit balance will receive a 10% bonus (for example: if you withdraw $100, you will be credited $110).
Advertising your affiliate link on websites is permitted only if the website requires registration and displays that the author or user who posted the affiliate link is you. For example, forums are permitted, but most coupon listing websites are not.
Advertising your affiliate link on websites designed to provide coupon codes or discounts is not permitted.
The full affiliate link provided should be visible when it is clicked. Hiding it as another link or with a button or image is not permitted.
Only the affiliate link provided should be advertised – using another link (such as a shortened URL) to redirect to your affiliate link is not permitted.
The affiliate system is designed to refer new people to our service. Commissions will only apply to new customers.
If we reasonably believe a new account has been created to bypass the limitations in this terms of service, the commission will not apply.
You cannot click your own affiliate link or receive commission for doing so.
Affiliate commissions are granted for the value of the first month, irrespective of the billing cycle selected (e.g: If an annual billing cycle is selected, the commission value is only the portion from the first month – not the full year).
Commissions from quarterly, semi-annual or annual billing cycles are not eligible for PayPal withdrawal.
Any commissions earned will be held for a 35 day “maturation period”. If the referred service is refunded, cancelled or terminated during this time, the commission is void and will not be attributed to your affiliate account.
An affiliate balance has no real-world value until it is withdrawn from your account. Non-compliance with any point in our terms of service will void your eligibility to withdraw your affiliate balance.
At any time we may investigate your affiliate account to ensure all terms are followed. This may involve asking questions before permitting a withdrawal. Failure to answer a question truthfully or at all may result in the removal of your affiliate balance and/or closure of your account.
Any attempts to exploit the affiliate system may result the removal of your affiliate balance, nullification of your eligible to withdraw your affiliate balance and/or closure of your account.
Violation of any of these terms may result the removal of your affiliate balance, nullification of your eligibility to withdraw your affiliate balance and/or closure of your account.
