Web Hosting Acceptable Use Policy


This acceptable use policy applies to both personal and business web hosting services as provided by Intraplex.
We reserve the right to update this document periodically, please check regularly for changes.  Last Updated on 21/02/2014.

Acceptable Use Policy

Intraplex is a provider of web-hosting and other Internet-related services and as such offers its customers (referred to as "clients") and users the means to acquire and distribute public, private, commercial, non-commercial and other information. Due to the open nature of the internet and lack of a single party that owns or controls it, much of responsibility of using it acceptably falls on those who use it. Intraplex has this Acceptable Use Policy, which 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 Intraplex' web hosting and related services. Intraplex reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions to protect its own and others interests.

When clients obtain information through the Internet, they must remember that Intraplex cannot monitor, warrant or verify the accuracy and quality of any information they acquire. Because of this, clients of Intraplex must use their own best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet or other sources, and should also be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Intraplex cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, Intraplex cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its clients resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.

Intraplex does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its clients may create or acquire from the internet. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful communication. Also, because the information created is carried over our providers network and may reach a large number of people, including both clients and non-clients of Intraplex, clients' postings to the Internet may affect other clients and may affect Intraplex goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, clients violate Intraplex Acceptable Use Policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:

 

Unauthorized or illegal Access to Computers or Networks

Accessing illegally or without authorization, computers, accounts, servers or networks belonging to another party or individual, or attempting to penetrate or “break-through” security measures of another individual's system (often referred to as "hacking"). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to the above mentioned actions (i.e., port scan, stealth scan, man-in-the-middle attacks or other information gathering activity).

 

Adult-Oriented Content

Intraplex does not allow adult or otherwise pornographic content and reserves the right to suspend/terminate/remove any account found to be hosting or distributing this content without warning.

 

Obscene Speech or Materials

Using our or our provider’s network or servers to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited.

Use of Intraplex’s servers or network as a means to transmit, post or host negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language or content is prohibited.

 

Spamming

Distributing or sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward Intraplex, but also because it can overload our providers network and disrupt service to Intraplex' clients. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, Intraplex will investigate and shutdown any account deemed to be spamming. A $250 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Furthermore Intraplex reserves the right to prosecute for this violation.
