PC Doctors.NET TERMS OF SERVICE
In order to maintain our system integrity and resources, we expect our customers to act responsibly. When you use any PC Doctors.NET services, in any form, you automatically agree to the following Conditions.
We reserve the right to suspend or cancel a customer’s access to any or all services we provided when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used. In short:
No adult content (Pornography)
No online gambling
No Spam, No unsolicited e-mailing
No Warez, cracks, copyright infringement
Please double-check your files before hosting to ensure zero viruses and injectors in the script. Any malware if found on the site, the account will be suspended until it’s infection-free.
Specific Acceptable Use Policies
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of us is strictly prohibited.
Unauthorized use of other people’s accounts or computers
We 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 customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to us, 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.
Abuse of Unlimited Traffic and/or Unlimited Storage
Our customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic and/or unlimited storage for their web sites. The intention is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an offsite storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be ‘linked’ with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on our 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 our management. Any customer who violates our 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 2 day period, the client will be billed for the overages.
To maintain the integrity of our service the following limitations apply:
Sites with Banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domain
Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred is graphics)
Sites offering download files or archives. (This is any site where more than 50% of the monthly traffic is from file downloads)
Sites using more than 30% of system resources, included but not limited to CPU and memory
For those that do not qualify for the unlimited service, traffic will go unmonitored until you reach 2GB per month. Thereafter, extra data transfer cost of $20.00/1GB/month will be billed to your account.
We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision
Commercial advertisements with e-mail
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.
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, without approving it with the Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.
Background Running Programs
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one-to-one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.
All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. Setup fees are charged for all new accounts and major account changes. All pricing is guaranteed for the term of pre-payment. We reserves the right to change prices at any time, unless other terms have been agreed upon. Any account not brought current within a week (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 us in writing for a request for termination of services.
We reserve the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by us if we institute our right of cancellation. Any violation of policies which results in extra costs will be billed to the customer (i.e. transfer, space etc.)
All of our web hosting plans are backed by a 30 day money back guarantee(Only for wire transfer). If you are not completely satisfied with our services or support within the first 30 days of your contract, you will be given a full refund of the contract amount including setup fees but excluding overages. Domain Registration fees are not refundable at all. If the web hosting plan includes a free domain name registration, when cancelled an amount equal to the regular domain name registration fee will be charged. For web hosting contracts of 3 months or less, the full contract amount less any domain registration fees and overages will be refunded if we are notified within the first 30 days following activation. No refund is available after the 30th day. For web hosting contracts longer than three months, a refund equal to one half of the contract amount less any domain registration fees and overages will be given if we are notified prior to the first day of the second half of the contract term. For example, on a twelve month contract we must receive the notice of cancellation prior to the first day of the sixth month of the contract. No refunds will be given once the second half of the contract term has begun. This policy does not apply to any additional services such as overages, additional disk space, additional pop accounts, etc. Due to security concerns, all account cancellations must be done in writing via mail or fax with a valid signature of the primary contact of the account, account name, reason for cancellation. We also accept account cancellation submitted from the registered email address of the account holder. Phone requests will not constitute acceptance of any cancellation. If payment was made by check or bank transfer, payment will be made by company check within 15 days of receipt of cancellation.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Customers may only use our servers for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited.
