Subdimension Hosting believes that the First Amendment rights of free speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of association apply to the Internet to the same degree as they do to print media. Subdimension Hosting has no intention of infringing upon those rights. In fact we encourage using your own creativity and self expression within the limits of the law.
Unauthorized Use of Accounts or Computers
Subdimension Hosting will react strongly to any unauthorized use or attempted unauthorized use of an Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to Subdimension Hosting, such attempts include but are not limited to "social engineering" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password cracking, security hole scanning, and denial of service attacks.
Possible actions including warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and legal action, according to the seriousness of the attack.
Electronic mail passes through multiple mail servers from source to destination on the Internet. One can never be guaranteed privacy from every possible mail server; therefore, customers seeking total privacy should use some encryption scheme, such as PGP to render their messages unreadable by eavesdroppers.
With regards to Subdimension Hosting mail servers, Subdimension Hosting places a high value on privacy, and will normally only examine Customers' mail to troubleshoot E-mail delivery problems, protect system security, or to comply with a lawful warrant or court-order.
Subdimension Hosting will not divulge Customer account information, except at the direction of a lawfully served warrant.
Commercial advertising is an accepted and welcome use of the Internet. However, there is appropriate and inappropriate Internet advertising. ISP's that don't abide by this Internet standard may be denied access to newsgroups and in some cases to the Internet entirely.
Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in Usenet discussion groups and on E-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate postings may result in account suspension or cancellation either with or without prior notice. See the newsgroup or mailing list's charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. Unsolicited commercial advertisements sent out via E-mail or to many off-topic newsgroups are not allowed. Generally ads should be placed in the ".biz" newsgroup hierarchy.
Sending a message, such as unsolicited e-mail, especially an un-requested advertisement, to multiple recipients is by itself "spamming" and an unauthorized use of E-mail unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. Placing a checkbox on a checkout page or adding a subscription automatically during a the checkout process does not constitute permission of the email address owner to receive email advertisements. Any verified mail or complaints or abuse will result in suspension of the account for 5 days until proof is shown that mailing has stopped. No mass mailing to, from or involving Subdimension Hosting will be tolerated, period.
Web sites that use unsavory or illegal methods to acquire control of or otherwise interfere with visitors browsers, or attempt to install unauthorized or unwanted software on a visitors machine will have their accounts disabled immediately. This includes the use of auto-software-install scripts when the user opens a web page that is not an identified download link, the use of 'bookmark this page now' pop-up windows that automatically open when a visitor clicks on a link to the web site, automatic resizing of the users browser window to take over the entire screen, use of click trapping to prevent the user from using the back button or leaving your web site, or any similar trick or technique that interferes with site visitors' ability to use their browser. We do not support businesses that use such methods.
Make Money Fast
Any mailing or posting of "Make Money Fast" (MMF) or "Fast Cash" or pyramid schemes or chain letters of any sort will result in quick account termination. Pyramid schemes are illegal no matter how the message is presented. Pyramid schemes are NOT permitted.
Spoofing E-mail and News posts
All Customer E-mail and news posts shall have the Customer's valid account name in the header. You may use another existing Subdimension Hosting or non- Subdimension Hosting E-mail address in the "reply to" field as long as it is clear that the post came from your Subdimension Hosting account. Use of standard “anonymous re-mailers” is allowed for private (noncommercial) E-mail and posting.
Illegal Material (Copyright)
Subdimension Hosting assumes no legal liabilities relating to Customer's use of Subdimension Hosting computer network and equipment. However, Subdimension Hosting requires that its customers not use Subdimension Hosting network for illegal purposes. In any legal matters that result from a Customers action, Subdimension Hosting is under no obligation to defend itself rather than settle. Any losses suffered by Subdimension Hosting to settle or defend legal action, and all civil or criminal penalties inflicted on Subdimension Hosting as a result of any Customers act are payable by the customer. Customer shall have no defense against prompt and full repayment to Subdimension Hosting. When presented with a search warrant, Subdimension Hosting is obligated to release appropriate information requested, and will cooperate with the authorities in any criminal investigation.
While Subdimension Hosting recognizes that the legal status of the Internet has not yet been fully resolved, Subdimension Hosting considers certain actions illegal and therefore not allowed on its network, for example; unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material; exploitation of minors; and unauthorized use of computer resources.
Subdimension Hosting makes no representations concerning any attempt to review the content of sites hosted on its servers, and so Subdimension Hosting is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in sites hosted on its servers.
Harassment or abusive use of E-mail and other Internet services is a serious misuse of Internet resources. Subdimension Hosting will handle incidents of harassment on a case-by-case basis, consulting with the parties involved. If you wish to report harassment, or abuse of services, please email us and the abuse dept will get back to you as soon as possible.
Inappropriate use of Web Service
Subdimension Hosting provides space for commercial web pages with some services. Subdimension Hosting maintains no responsibility for the content of such pages. Subdimension Hosting will handle complaints about inappropriate web pages on a case-by-case basis. Examples of inappropriate information include downloadable virus code, bulk E-mail lists, illicit advertising, and web-based services that allow members of the public to send E-mail or post news anonymously.
Subdimension Hosting IRC rules
IRC client software is not allowed to be run through a shell account on any servers owned by Subdimension Hosting. IRC client software must be run from the users own computer.
Bots (automated IRC programs) run against any programs, community talk programs, video, audio or text servers, even if they are run from your own machine, are not allowed via a Subdimension Hosting connection.
If Subdimension Hosting receives a complaint, Subdimension Hosting will investigate the abuse and, if a violation has occurred, may put the account on hold or remove the abusers account. Full payment for the entire contract term will still be due, even with no further services provided.
Customer agrees to abide by Subdimension Hosting interpretation of the above. If Customer needs help interpreting or applying these rules, Customer should ask Subdimension Hosting support staff for assistance.
Abuse of Subdimension Hosting Services
Any use of Subdimension Hosting system resources that disrupts the normal operation of the system or the use by other Subdimension Hosting customers is considered to be abuse of system resources and is grounds for administrative intervention. Use of Subdimension Hosting computers or Internet connection to send ping or other packets in an attempt to deny service to another user is considered abuse. Depending on the nature and the severity of the abuse, the customer may receive an E-mail warning, have his processes halted, or have his account suspended. If the misuse is unintentional or has under other mitigating circumstances, the suspension may be rescinded but may require a reconnection charge. Customers who believe their activity has been inappropriately handled may appeal to Subdimension Hosting Management.
