Due to the unpredictable nature of the transfer process, no guarantees are made regarding the amount of time a specific transfer may take.

SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE): Company takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means that customers of Company may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of Company may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other networks. In addition, it is not acceptable to transmit bulk email through remote SOCKS, HTTP or other similar proxies who in turn make an SMTP (TCP port 25) connection to the destination mail servers. This technique may result in account suspension or termination. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service. In order to prevent unnecessary blacklisting due to spam, we reserve the right to occasionally sample bulk email being sent from servers.
Violation of Company’s SPAM policy will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our SPAM policy, Company will initiate an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification). During the investigation, Company may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, Company may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer’s account. Further, Company reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. Company will notify law enforcement officials if the violation is believed to be a criminal offense.
First violations of this policy will result in an “Administrative Fee” of $250 and your account will be reviewed for possible immediate termination. A second violation will result in an “Administrative Fee” of $500 and immediate termination of your account. Users who violate this policy agree that in addition to these “Administrative” penalties, they will pay “Research Fees” not to exceed $175 per hour that Company personnel must spend to investigate the matter. PLEASE, DO NOT SPAM from your account.
As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over the Company network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients.
BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY, anyone hosting websites or services on their server that support spammers or cause any of our IP space to be listed in any of the various Spam Databases will have their server immediately removed from our network. The server will not be reconnected until such time that you agree to remove ANY and ALL traces of the offending material immediately upon reconnection and agree to allow us access to the server to confirm that all material has been COMPLETELY removed. Severe violations may result in immediate and permanent removal of the server from our network without notice to the customer. Any server guilty of a second violation WILL be immediately and permanently removed from our network without notice.

Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, or termination of this Agreement, which actions may be taken is in Company’s sole and absolute discretion. If Company takes any corrective action under this section, Customer shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior to such action. Bandwidth usage is measured on a calendar month basis. Both incoming and outgoing traffic is counted. In the event that a customer exceeds the included allocation, Company may, at its sole discretion, collect a deposit, in the amount of $1.50 per GB, against customer’s credit card on file with Company. Data transfer in excess of each server’s monthly allowance is automatically billed on or around the 5th of each month, for the previous calendar month.
