Located in the Marysville and Seattle area, we love to design, develop and support Joomla!® based websites and Custom Web Applications.
PROHIBITED CONTENT AND ACTIVITIES
Customer may only use Natural Selection Web Hosting's Servers for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on Natural Selection Web Hosting Servers. Also, using Natural Selection's servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.
Websites dedicated to the discussion of hacking activities or the distribution of hacking tools are prohibited. Also, the usage of Natural Selection's computer systems or network to access any system, service, or network without the owner's consent is expressly forbidden.
Any activity which causes service interruptions to either Natural Selection's network/servers or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of Denial of Service attacks or other maliciously configured software.
Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sells or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings (spam), or to use Natural Selection Hosting's Servers for relaying unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings, or to use unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings to advertise for their site hosted at Natural Selection. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account cancellation without a refund.
Collecting or using email addresses, screen names or other personal identifiers without the consent of the person identified (including, without limitation, phishing, Internet scamming, password robbery, spidering, and harvesting).
You agree that if the Natural Selection's IP numbers assigned to your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist like Spamhaus, you will be in violation of this AUP, and we may take reasonable action to protect our IP numbers.
FOREX, egold exchange, etc. are not permitted on Natural Selection servers.
Usage of the Natural Selection's network to impersonate another person or entity, be it through Email, Internet Forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes spoofing email or network packet headers whether or not it is done for malicious purposes.
Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called "Scraper sites." These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.
Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against Natural Selection's network or website, or Natural Selection's employees or other agents, including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS) is subject to removal.
The customer agrees to make use of Natural Selection's Web Hosting servers primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated email functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose. Natural Selection's Web Hosting servers are not intended as a data backup or archiving service. Natural Selection Web Hosting reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at their discretion. For personal backups we suggest using a storage service like DropBox or Amazon S3.
You agree not to run a banner exchange or any website that contains any adult images.
Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.
All IRC bots and "bouncers" (bnc, etc) are forbidden.
While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed on Natural Selection Web Hosting services.
Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often causes a negative impact on both the servers and the network they are connected to. As such all proxies are prohibited on Natural Selection's network and servers.
Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden. Processes are allowed to bind to the local host only, but are held to the limitations placed on all other processes. They must not use up more than their fair share of resources and they must not interfere with any other customers' activities.
The following policy dictates in specific terms what is considered acceptable use of bulk email/messaging by Natural Selection. The send limit per email account is 50 per hour. If you habitually exceed the limit your hosting account may be disabled. These limits are imposed to prevent our servers from being black-listed as spammers and conform to the CAN-SPAM Act.
