Frequently Asked Questions
 
Why is Parador Interactive changing its rates?
We continue to absorb significant increases in our Canadian Data Centre costs due to ongoing server hardware upgrades and security maintenance. Furthermore, our data centre costs are billed in US dollars which for the past two years has been a substantial ongoing cost. Unfortunately, this means we need to adjust the pricing of our hosting services to off-set costs increases..
 
When will my service pricing change?
You will see the change on or after March 15, 2016, at least 15 days after you receive our notice. No action is required on your part since the change will happen automatically. If you would like to make changes to your account, please give us a call.

Parador CMS Discontinuation Policy


Published:

In an ongoing effort to provide reliable high-quality products and services, Parador Interactive Inc. periodically retires (also known as “sunsets or discontinues”) older versions of Content Management System (CMS), thereby discontinuing online services & live technical phone and email support for these versions.
Under this policy the most current version of Parador CMS (currently Version 4.2.13), plus the prior two versions, will be supported, subject to certain exceptions. Generally we will support CMS versions for approximately two years after its general release date.

Sunsetting older versions of CMS allows us to focus resources on enhancing our products and providing support for more current versions, which are used by the vast majority of Parador customers.
When a CMS version is scheduled to be sunset, Parador will provide affected customers with advance notice, generally by means of this Web site, email and/or phone call. We update this Web site periodically, so please visit us again for more information as it becomes available.

As of Jan 01, 2016 in accordance with the Parador sunset policy, updates to online services and live technical support will no longer be available for Parador CMS 2.3.10 and earlier users.

New Billing Policy


Published:

Dear Customers,

Further to our note of last week regarding our new billing system, we wanted to provide some further information in response to some questions received.

1.  Our new billing system has a different approach to billing generation and notifications:
  • Invoices are generated a month before they are due, giving customers time to make payment. Note that payment can also be accepted by credit card by phone
  • For any customers who have their credit card information on file with us, their invoice will be automatically paid 1 day prior to the due date
  • After the invoice is due, reminders are sent out 7, 15 and 23 days thereafter and a late fee of 2% per month is added at 15 days after the due date. Note that this is 45 days after the invoice was first generated
  • If the invoice is more than 30 days overdue, the account is suspended. Note that this is 60 days after the invoice was first generated.

2.  Parador Interatice Inc. will no longer issue and mail printed invoices.  With today's communication tools, it is logistically unnecessary and environmentally irresponsible to print, pack and mail invoices.  For customers still wishing to receive a printed invoice, a $5 per invoice fee will apply. Parador Interactive Inc. will collect this fee and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Forest Stewardship Council.

If you require a paper invoice generated and mailed, please contact our accounting department and we will make the required notes and updates to your account.

Please feel free to contact us at any time should you have any further questions.
