  • 3.1.2 Maintenance and Spare Parts: Customers are responsible for the maintenance and repair of their own equipment. Lyratris Limited does not maintain a supply of spare parts nor offers replacement equipment for servers or hardware within our colocation facilities.

3.2 Financial Obligations

  • 3.2.1 Payment Schedule: Colocation service clients must adhere to the identical payment deadlines outlined in our standard payment terms. It's crucial to meet these deadlines to avoid any disruptions in service.

    • Service Termination: Services may be terminated if payments are overdue by more than 30 days and no payment plan has been arranged.
    • Equipment Seizure: If payment remains unreconciled after 90 days, Lyratris Limited reserves the right to take possession of equipment stored within our facilities to recover the outstanding balance. This step is only taken after exhaustive attempts to resolve the payment matter have been made.
  • 3.2.3 Trouble making payment: We encourage customers experiencing financial hardships to reach out to our billing department promptly. Initiating communication early may result in arrangements that prevent service interruption, termination, or equipment retrieval. Our aim is to collaborate with you to discover a resolution that maintains your service continuity while tackling any payment obstacles.

3.3 Service Transfer

  • 3.3.1 Procedure: To transfer a colocation service to another entity or organization, Lyratris Limited requires a bill of sale signed by both the transferring (current) owner and the receiving (new) owner. This document must expressly outline the agreement between both parties concerning the transfer of colocated equipment and services.

  • 3.3.2 Financial Responsibilities: Prior to the transfer, the previous owner must resolve all outstanding invoices and financial commitments. Lyratris Limited mandates the settlement of any remaining balances prior to finalizing the service transfer. Unless explicitly agreed upon in written form by the new owner, the responsibility for settling invoices accrued before the service transfer lies with the previous owner. Any deviation from this standard arrangement requires communication and approval from Lyratris Limited.
