PART III - HOSTING SERVICES

The terms and conditions set out in this Part III of the agreement apply to all hosting services to be rendered by Tradepage to customers.

  1. OWNERSHIP AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

    1. The content of the website is and shall at all times remain the intellectual property of the Client and shall be owned by the Client. Tradepage accordingly acknowledges and abides by the confidentiality and ownership of same.

    2. In using the content supplied by the Client for creating the website, Tradepage creates a source code (ASP.Net, html, VB scripted ASP, VB, C++ and other programming languages), which includes proprietary modules or "building blocks" belonging to Tradepage and/or third parties that automate low level functions and make it easier to develop the website. These proprietary/Tradepage modules are in a compiled format that cannot be modified. Examples of third party modules are: Server Objects, ASP Mail, SA Fileup. Accordingly the source code remains Tradepage's property and should the Client require a copy of the software it will be provided in a format which prevents the source code from being modified (viz dll file format).

    3. Should the Client wish to transfer the site from Tradepage's servers, Tradepage shall make available a copy of the software used to run the website to the Client. This software will function in a computer environment similar to that of Tradepage (viz. a Microsoft environment). While Tradepage's proprietary modules will be included with the software it will be incumbent on the new host to ensure the availability of the necessary third party modules.
