2. Setup Procedure
2.1 Setup time and fraud checks
Setup time guarantees only start once we have received cleared payment for the full amount of the invoice, and you have passed our fraud screening system, if you account is highlighted for possible fraud this will lead to an extended setup time, where we contact you to provide suitable verification such as but not limited to, phone verification, or personal identification. For some of our services, or for large value service orders, such as but not limited to: dedicated servers, your order will go through a account verification before we can accept and provision the order where we contact you for verification of your details, such as but not limited to: phone verification, or personal identification. For example, a service that is ordered at 1pm that has a setup time guarantee of 30 minutes, must go through fraud checks and have cleared payment of the full amount of the invoice before the setup time begins. If the checks are completed at 2pm, the setup time would then start and be guaranteed by 2:30pm. Depending on the service purchased, setup time will vary due to factors such as but not limited to: amount of services currently being setup, the load on the server at which your service will be setup on, current available staff, purchased service availability. All game servers other than Space Engineers and Medieval Engineers are setup automatically and will therefore be fully setup within 15 minutes of cleared payment and passing fraud screening. Space Engineers and Medieval Engineers game servers take up to 12 hours to setup as they are setup manually. You are not entitled to any form of monetary or non monetary compensation for any delays in the setup of the purchased service.
Trial servers have no guaranteed setup time.
More than one promotion cannot be used in conjunction with another promotion. Promotions are for example but not limited to: a discount on a service or a free add-on.
ServerBlend cannot guarantee that all promotions will work at all times. Promotions vary in where they can be used and when.
