Legal says we are obligated to do it - so here is it

Our Transfers Team will make every effort to help you move your website to us. Transfers are provided as a courtesy service. We do not make any guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to migrate some or all account data. In some cases we may not be able to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host. Please contact a member of our Transfers department to receive a price quote. In no event shall GMEngine be held liable for any lost or missing data or files resulting from a transfer to or from GMEngine. You are solely responsible for backing up your data in all circumstances.

Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. You are required to use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used.

Any account found connecting to a third party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension.

GMEngine may, at our discretion, request documentation to prove that your access to a third party network or system is authorized.
