Host Segen provides Internet World Wide Web page hosting, Marketing, and Development. Host Segen has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting with the use of its server and equipment involved in these services. Host Segen general policy is to act as a provider of internet presence. Host Segen has specific ethical concerns regarding the use of its computers detailed below. Host Segen reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer’s access to any or all services provided by Host Segen when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used.
Specific Acceptable and Prohibited Use Policies Server abuse :
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of Host Segen is strictly prohibited.
Unauthorized use of other people’s accounts or computers :
Host Segen will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer with- out the owner’s authorization. Such attempts include “internet scamming” (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning etc. Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a Host Segen customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to Host Segen, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal legal action, depending on the seriousness of the attack.
Adult Sites, That Place Adult Materials On Their Sites :
Any type of pornographic materials, hate materials, adult materials (that does not necessarily mean pornography only), racial materials, or unlawful practices are strictly banned on this server.
Abuse of Unlimited Traffic and/or Unlimited Storage :
Host Segen’s customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic (with all accounts) and/or unlimited storage (with Certain Packages) for their web sites. The intention of Host Segen is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an offsite storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be ‘linked’ with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on Host Segen’s server. This policy does ONLY apply to websites who are considered to be abusing services – bandwidth in particular. It is NOT applicable to photo galleries, even if several hundred megabytes of web space are in use. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the sole discretion of Host Segen’s management. Any customer who violates Host Segen’s policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 5 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted 5 day period, the client will be billed for the overages.
To maintain the integrity of our service the following limitations apply:
Sites with Banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains. Sites offering download files or archives (this is any site where 50% or more of there monthly traffic is from file downloads). Sites using more than 30% of system resources. For those that do not qualify for the unlimited service, traffic will go unmonitored until you reach 10 GB (10,737,418,240 bytes) per month. Thereafter, normal data transfer cost of $10.00/1GB will apply. Unless special agreement has been met, traffic overages will be billed in blocks of 10GB and cannot be prorated. Host Segen will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Commercial advertisements with e-mail unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account suspension or cancellation. Commercial advertisements are un-welcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation. See the newsgroup or mailing list’s charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. Spamming, or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such. Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five or six recipients, is by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. E-mail is a person-to-person medium, not a broadcast medium.
Chat Rooms :
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, without approving it with the Host Segen support team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. Note: Para chat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.
Background Running Programs :
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one-to-one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.
Payment Policies :
All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. . All pricing is guaranteed for the term of pre-payment. Host Segen reserves the right to change prices at any time, unless other terms have been agreed upon. Any account not brought current within a week (7 days) of e-mail notice or exceeding this time frame in any way is subject to suspension. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer notifies Host Segen in writing for a request for termination of services.
Host Segen reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by Host Segen if Host Segen institutes it’s right of cancellation. Any violation of policies which results in extra costs will be billed to the customer (i.e.transfer, space etc.). Customers can cancel service any time by sending email to [email protected] Host Segen would welcome a reason for cancellation, however this is not necessarily required.
