For Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS Hosting and other related services.
As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, we offer our customers (also known as "Subscribers") and your customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. We respect that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, we reserve the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, we have developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement, and is intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when using our services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.
One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet's openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that we cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because we cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, we cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.
When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that we do not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over our network and may reach a large number of people, including both our subscribers and non-subscribers, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect our goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate our policy and these terms when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward Mechbit Internet Services, but also because it can overload our network and disrupt service to our subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, we will investigate and suspend the account that is sending spam and reserve the right to keep the account suspended until such time that the account no longer sends spam.
Audio/Video Streaming is not hosting friendly. As such, we do not allow any streaming of audio or video content on shared & reseller hosting where the core files are hosted on our platform. Offending accounts will be suspended without noticed or terminated.If you want to stream audio, video you should consider VPS,Dedicated server or storage vps
We do not permit the use of our shared & reseller platform for the storage of backup or archival data, mirror sites, personal multimedia content such as movies, music, photos or other media. Your account and any sub-accounts may be used for genuine web hosting purposes only. Any content which is unrelated to your website is not permitted.If you want to use hosting then you should consider VPS,Dedicated server or storage vps
For shared hosting on most plan we don't limit your disk space providing the majority of your space is used for web hosting. We do not permit the use of our shared hosting as an e-mail archival system and you may be asked to remove e-mail, archive e-mail to your computer or upgrade to a VPS solution if it is determined your account is being used as such.
We do not permit shared & reseller platfrom for the use of our platform for peer-to-peer file or media sharing, BitTorrent, Tor or other such forms of data transmission.
Using our network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited. We are required by law to notify law enforcement agencies if we become aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through our network.
Using our network as a means to transmit or post negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language.
Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message.
Accessing, illegally or without authorisation, computers, accounts or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual's system (often known as "hacking"). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity).
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service (DDOS) attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment.
Destructive activities include inviting, either directly or indirectly, an attack (such as a DDOS) against our platform. Such invitations include inviting third parties to attempt to compromise the security of our platform or knowingly participating in an external attack (such as a DDOS) which results in retaliatory action from a third-party.
Advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available any software, program, product or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail bombing, denial of service attacks and piracy of software.
We reserve the right not to accept postings from newsgroups where we have actual knowledge that the content of the newsgroup violates the AUP.
We do not permit the hosting of any sites engaging in phishing, impersonating public institutions or private companies in an attempt to defraud members of the public. Any sites found in breach of this will be suspended or terminated without notice.
Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including, but not limited to, advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards, publishing or threatening to publish private data and pirating software.
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that we determine to be harmful to our subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.
As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. We will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of our subscribers to ensure that they comply with our policy or applicable law. However, when we become aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, suspension or termination of hosting services, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action we deem appropriate.
We are also aware that many of our subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching our facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. We do not require our subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of our subscribers. We reserve the right to directly take action against a customer of our subscribers. Also, we may take action against the our subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, we anticipate that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with us in any corrective or preventive action that we deem necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of our policy.
We will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or receive by our subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. We may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, we may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request subject to Data Protection and other UK legislation. We assume no obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, we may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over our network where necessary to protect us and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, we will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
We expect that our subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of online communications. A subscriber's failure to comply with those laws will violate our policy. Finally, we wish to emphasise that, in accepting these terms and placing an order, subscribers indemnify Mechbit Internet Services for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or Mechbit Internet Services policy resulting in loss to Mechbit Internet Services or the bringing of any claim against Mechbit Internet Services by any third party. This means that, if we are sued because of a subscriber's or customer of a subscriber's activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against us, plus costs and reasonable legal and solicitors' fees.
