1. PROHIBITED CONTENT AND ACTIVITIES
a. Illegal Activity
Customer may only use Eh+ Web Services’ Server for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, Provincial/State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on Eh+ Web Services’ Server. Also, using Eh+ Web Services’ servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.
Websites dedicated to the discussion of hacking activities or the distribution of hacking tools are prohibited. Also, the usage of Eh+ Web Services’ computer systems or network to access any system, service, or network without the owner’s consent is expressly forbidden.
c. Service Interruptions
Any activity which causes service interruptions to either Eh+ Web Services’ network/servers or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of Denial of Service attacks or other maliciously configured software.
d. Anonymous Proxies
Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often cause a negative impact on both the servers and the network they are connected to. As such, they’re prohibited on Eh+ Web Services’ network and servers.
Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sells or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings (spam), or to use Eh+ Web Services’ Servers for relaying unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings, or to use unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings to advertise for their site hosted at Eh+ Web Services. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account cancellation without a refund.
f. Personal Information Harvesting
Collecting or using email addresses, screen names or other personal identifiers without the consent of the person identified (including, without limitation, phishing, Internet scamming, password robbery, spidering, and harvesting).
You agree that if the Eh+ Web Services’ IP numbers assigned to your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist like Spamhaus, you will be in violation of this AUP, and Eh+ Web Services may take reasonable action to protect its IP numbers, including suspension and/or termination of your service, regardless of whether the IP numbers were listed as a result of your actions.
h. Investment Sites
FOREX, egold exchange, etc.
Usage of the Eh+ Web Services network to impersonate another person or entity, be it through Email, Internet Forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes spoofing email or network packet headers whether or not it is done for malicious purposes.
Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.
Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against Eh+ Web Services’ network or website, or Eh+ Web Services’ employees, officers or other agents, including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).
k. Personal Backups
The customer agrees to make use of Eh+ Web Services’ servers primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated email functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose. Eh+ Web Services’ servers are not intended as a data backup or archiving service. Eh+ Web Services reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at their discretion. If you exceed your allocated transfer bandwidth for a month, you will be billed at the rate of $0.50 per additional 1GB.
l. Adult Thumbnail Galleries/Banner Exchanges
You agree not to run a banner exchange, free adult tgp (thumbnail gallery post), or free adult image galleries on your website.
m. Abusive Scripts/Processes
Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.
n. IRC Bots/Bouncers
All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.
o. BitTorrent software
While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed on Eh+ Web Services’ servers.
p. Proxy Software
All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on Eh+ Web Services’ servers.
a. Consequences of Violation of AUP
Eh+ Web Services may without notice to you, suspend your service or remove any content transmitted via the Eh+ Web Services’ servers if it discovers facts that lead it to reasonably believe your service is being used in violation of this AUP. You must cooperate with Eh+ Web Services’ reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. Eh+ Web Services will attempt to contact you prior to suspension of network access to your server(s), however, prior notification is not assured.
You are strictly responsible for the use of your Eh+ Web Services’ service in violation of this AUP, including unauthorized use. Eh+ Web Services will charge you its hourly rate for security breach recovery (currently $250.00) plus the cost of equipment and material needed to (i) investigate or otherwise respond to any suspected violation of this AUP, (ii) remedy any harm caused to Eh+ Web Services or any of its customers by the use of your service in violation of this AUP, (iii) respond to complaints, and (iv) have Eh+ Web Services’ IP numbers removed from any "blacklist" such as SPEWs or other abuse databases.
a. Amendments to AUP
The Internet is still evolving, and the ways in which the Internet may be abused are also still evolving. Therefore, we may from time to time amend this AUP in accordance with our Master Services Agreement to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions on your use of our services.
Eh+ Web Services is under no duty, and does not by this AUP undertake a duty, to monitor or police our customers' activities and disclaims any responsibility for any misuse of the Eh+ Web Services network. Eh+ Web Services disclaims any obligation to any person who has not entered into an agreement with Eh+ Web Services for services.
