We request that you provide a preferred location at order time and we will always attempt to provision your service within this location within 72 hours.
If we do not believe we will be able to provision a service within the preferred location in the above timeframe, we may choose an alternate location if we deem that the latency change will be insignificant.
This is unlikely to occur except during seasonal sales where it becomes hard to provision hardware due to upstream suppliers being unavailable.
If we believe the change will be significant, we will await further instructions from you.
Should you encounter "lag" issues, please contact support via the control panel for investigation as it is unlikely to be latency related.
We request that you only ask us for help with things you cannot resolve yourself with the included tools, and we reserve the right to de-prioritise your tickets should they place a disproportionate burden on our support team, or offer you a paid support package - these support packages will be quoted per user and are not fixed.
If any work is undone, by the client or another third party, we reserve the right to refuse further work within the active billing period.
