Terms of Service

WorldWeb.BIZ Terms of Service

 

Unsolicited Email (Spam):
Unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account suspension or cancellation. Commercial advertisements are unwelcome 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. Spammers will be instantly terminated. Depending on the seriousness of the issue we have the right to also charge maximum fines.

WorldWeb.BIZ provides Internet World Wide Web page hosting, Marketing, and Development. WorldWeb.BIZ has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting with the use of its server and equipment involved in these services.

WorldWeb.BIZ general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. WorldWeb.BIZ has specific ethical concerns regarding the use of its computers detailed below. WorldWeb.BIZ reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer’s access to any or all services provided by WorldWeb.BIZ when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used.


Server Abuse:
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of WorldWeb.BIZ is strictly prohibited.

Unauthorized use of other people’s accounts or computers WorldWeb.BIZ will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without 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 WorldWeb.BIZ customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to WorldWeb.BIZ , 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE – WorldWeb.BIZ has the right to discontinue service, or deny access to anyone who violates our Policies or the terms and conditions shown below WITHOUT WARNING OR PRIOR NOTICE. No refunds of fees paid will be made if account termination is due to violation of the terms outlined below.

Customers may not run IRC, bots or clients. Unacceptable uses also include, but are NOT limited to: Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailings, newsgroup spamming, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, warez, cracks, software serial numbers, and/or anything else determined by WorldWeb.BIZ to be unacceptable use of WorldWeb.BIZ’s services including abuse of server resources. You may not use your storage space we allocate to you for any type of personal storage.

Accounts may be terminated that include the following content or which have links to the following content:

* Acts of copyright infringement including offering pirated computer programs or links to such programs, information used to circumvent manufacturer-installed copy-protect devices, including serial or registration numbers for software programs, or any type of cracker utilities.


Abuse of Unlimited Traffic:
WorldWeb.BIZ customers are privileged to be offered traffic for their web sites. The intention of WorldWeb.BIZ is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All of your web pages (html) must be ‘linked’ with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on WorldWeb.BIZ’s server. 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 discretion of WorldWeb.BIZ management. Any customer who violates WorldWeb.BIZ’s Policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 2 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted period, the client will be terminated.

CGI Scripts:
Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation without prior warning.

Chat Rooms:
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, without approving it with the WorldWeb.BIZ Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.

Abuse of SMTP Mail Server:
We do not allow clients to send more than 1000 pieces of e-mail per day. If you do send more than 1000 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse. If you are sending legitimate e-mails and they total more than 1000 per day your account will be moved to a special server that is specifically designed to handle high volumes of e-mail. You will be charged $50.00/month in addition to your regular hosting charges if your account is moved to this server.

IRC:
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Any account not brought current within 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 WorldWeb.BIZ to request for termination of services by using the automated cancellation form located on our contact page. All payment is in U.S. currency. WorldWeb.BIZ will bill each client $50 per returned online pay by check and per credit card chargeback received and confiscate any domain names purchased through our registrar. If unpaid invoices go over 30 days WorldWeb.BIZ will terminate your services. All WorldWeb.BIZ accounts are setup on anniversary billing cycles. Your particular billing cycle corresponds to the contract length that was initially chosen at setup. Your account will automatically renew at this length. If you go above and beyond average disk space and/or bandwidth usage WorldWeb.BIZ reserves the right to increase fees.
