Terms of Service


Welcome to LightCDN's Terms of Service! The first part of our terms of service is an introduction. Its structure is similar to FAQ,and some concepts are listed before in-depth discussion of other terms.

What documents does TOS consist of?

We refer to the terms of service as "TOS".

This page lists the core of our TOS, but we also have other contract documents that you can consider as additional terms for specific topics. Legally, these other documents are incorporated by reference, as if they were written here, and form part of the entire TOS. Therefore, you should also review these other documents, which can be found in the following links:

Privacy policy, which outlines how we collect, use, and share data on our websites and services

Who does this TOS apply to?

When we refer to "LightCDN" or use pronouns such as "we", "we" or "our", we mean LightCDN and its parent companies, subsidiaries and subsidiaries.

When we refer to "users", we mean you, and we will also use the words "you" and "your" to refer to you. If you use our services on behalf of a company, organization or other entity, who you are may become more complicated. In this case, you indicate to us that you have the right to bind your company, organization or other entity to this TOS, and you promise to represent this entity (and "users", "you" and "your" then refer to such entities). If you are not sure what this means, or if you have the right to bind your company, organization or entity to this contract, you should ask others in your organization to obtain instructions about the authority.

What are the terms of service?

This TOS is a binding contract between you and LightCDN, covering all products, websites, products, services, functions, content, applications and other content we provide to users like you.

We will regularly distinguish our websites, such as budget Com (collectively referred to as the "Website") and all our other services, such as our cloud infrastructure and other paid services (collectively referred to as the "Services").

As you will see later in TOS, Section 3 (Website Terms) is specific to your use of the website, and Section 4 (Terms of Service) is specific to your use of the service.

When does this TOS apply to me?

Now that we have some common language, we want to make sure you understand when and how TOS applies.

First of all, you must understand that this is a binding legal contract necessary to use our website and services. Therefore, you can use our website and services only if you agree that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by this TOS.

If you register a service or create an account through our website, this TOS will take effect when you check "I agree to Terms of service" or other functions indicating that you accept its terms. If you purchase services through a separate written contract, this TOS will be included in the contract, regardless of whether it is indicated or not. Regardless of these other methods, when you visit or use our website and services, this TOS is applicable and legally binding on you and your access and use. These are common examples. This paragraph does not necessarily include all other ways that you can be bound by this TOS.

How to handle disputes arising from this TOS?

One of the requirements of our TOS is that you must agree to resolve the disputes arising from this TOS through the content deleted by the direct binding arbitration between you and LightCDN: what will happen. In arbitration, the neutral arbitrator or panel of arbitrators will listen to the arguments of both parties and make a decision on the dispute in a convenient and cost-effective manner. When these cases involve small claims, you can still bring a lawsuit in court, but all other claims will be arbitrated.

You should understand that this means that neither you nor LightCDN has the opportunity to resolve certain disputes before a judge or jury in court. You will not be able to make claims in traditional trials, nor will you be able to participate in court based class actions or similar proceedings.
