WebDesign-DM.com will be named PROVIDER. Any company or person who get services from PROVIDER will be named CUSTOMER. Anyone who interacts in any way with website will be named USER.
By using our services, you agree to comply with this Policy. You are expected to use the eb system built by provider with respect, courtesy, and responsibility. We expect you to have a basic knowledge of how the Internet functions, the types of uses, which are generally acceptable, and the types of uses, which are to be avoided. Common sense is the best guide as to what is considered acceptable use. The following are unacceptable uses:
Illegality in any form, including but not limited to activities such as unauthorized distribution or copying of copyrighted materials, violation of USA’s export restrictions, harassment, fraud, trafficking in obscene material, drug dealing, and other illegal activities.
The provisions of this Policy are intended as guidelines and are not meant to be exhaustive. Generally, conduct that violates law, regulation, or the accepted norms of the Internet community, whether or not expressly mentioned in this Policy, is prohibited. The PROVIDER reserves the right at all times to prohibit activities that damage its commercial reputation and goodwill.
PROVIDER is not responsible for any material published on the CUSTOMER website. CUSTOMER shall not post, transmit, re-transmit or store material on or through any of Services or Products which, in the sole judgment of the Company (i) is in violation of any local, state, federal or international law or regulation, (ii) threatening, obscene, indecent, defamatory or that otherwise could adversely affect any individual, group or entity (collectively, “Persons”) or (iii) violates the rights of any person, including rights protected by copyright, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property or similar laws or regulations including, but not limited to, the installation or distribution of “pirated” or other software products that are not appropriately licensed for use by CUSTOMER. CUSTOMER shall be responsible for determining what laws or regulations are applicable to its use of the Services and Products.
CUSTOMER must use reasonable care in keeping each script, application, server or network devices attached to or hosted by PROVIDER’s infrastructure up-to-date and patched with the latest security updates. Failure to use reasonable care to protect your applications and/or server may result in a security compromise by outside sources. PROVIDER is not responsible for CUSTOMER application/server level security unless a security administration package, firewall security administration package or fully managed operating system package is contracted for. A compromised application or server creating network interference will result in immediate CUSTOMER notification and will be suspended/disconnected from the network immediately so as to not directly affect other customers. No service credits will be issued for outages resulting from disconnection due directly to breached security. The Customer is solely responsible for any breaches of security affecting the applications or servers under Customer control. If a Customer intentionally creates a security breach, the cost to resolve any damage to Customer’s application or server or other servers will be charged directly to the Customer. The labour used to resolve such damage is categorized as emergency security breach recovery and is currently charged at $600 AUD per hour.
Violations of system or network security are strictly prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. PROVIDER investigates all incidents involving such violations and will cooperate with law enforcement if a criminal violation is suspected.
Examples of system or network security violations include, without limitation, the following:
4.1 Misuse of System Resources on Shared Hosting Service
It is a violation for anyone to post information or to include programs on the shared hosting service provided through the PROVIDER services which consume excessive bandwidth or CPU time. Background processes, including, but not limited to: ircbot, bnc, proxy, email sender, daemons, are strictly prohibited.
4.2 Internet Etiquette
CUSTOMER is expected execute reasonable Internet etiquette (Netiquette). The CUSTOMER will comply with the rules appropriate to any network to which PROVIDER may provide access. The CUSTOMER should not post, transmit, or permit Internet access to information the CUSTOMER desires to keep confidential. The CUSTOMER is not permitted to post any material that is illegal, libelous, and tortuous, indecently depicts children or is likely to result in retaliation against PROVIDER by offended users. The PROVIDER reserves the right to refuse or terminate service at any time for violation of this section. This includes advertising services or sites via IRC or USENET in clear violation of the policies of the IRC channel or USENET group.
4.3 Email Policy
Mass Mailing. PROVIDER has a zero stance policy on SPAM, Junk E-mail or UCE. Spam, Junk-mail and UCE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail messages, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. UCE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of PROVIDER services whether or not the message actually originated from our network.
Mailing Lists: PROVIDER’s mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list services, or mailing services you may contract with. The policy is stated as follows: An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a targeted audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you. The list must also allow for automatic removal by all CUSTOMER with non-distribution in the future.
If CUSTOMER actions have caused PROVIDER’s mail servers or PROVIDER’s IP address ranges to be placed on black hole lists and other mail filtering software systems used by companies on the internet, you will be assessed a $1000 charge to your account and $600 per hour for administrative charges incurred to remove and protect mail servers and IP ranges.
Use of Email Accounts. PROVIDER provides limited number of email accounts to its shared hosting customers. This facility should only be used for customer’s direct staff and/or families. PROVIDER specifically prohibits the use of our shared hosting’s email facility to provide email service, whether it is free or fee based to the general public. For example, CUSTOMER cannot provide free email service such as Hotmail based on our shared hosting email facility.
4.4 Child Pornography
PROVIDER will cooperate fully with any criminal investigation into CUSTOMER’s violation of the USA’s Child Protection acts concerning child pornography. CUSTOMERs are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over PROVIDER’s servers, and will be liable for illegal material posted by their clients.
