Acceptable Terms of Use


By using our web hosting services, you agree to comply with our acceptable usage policy.  We expect you to possess a basic knowledge of the Internet and computer function.  We also expect you to have access to a computer which is connected to the Internet to use our services.  The spirit of this policy is to guide you to use the Golemweb service with due regard to the rights of other Internet users and in conformity with special Golemweb network environment.

Illegal Usage

Golemweb servers may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or distribution of any information, data or material in violation of any applicable law or regulation is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right used without proper authorization, and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws.  Examples of non-acceptable content or links: Pirated software, Hackers programs or archives, Warez sites, MP3, and IRC bots.  The subscriber to Golemweb service agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Golemweb from any claims resulting from the use of the service that damages the subscriber or any other party.

Golemweb will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Adult Content

Due to special system and network requirements of adult oriented sites, pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or links to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to our servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Violations of system or network security are prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. Examples include, but are not limited to the following: Unauthorized access, use, probe, or scan of a systems security or authentication measures, data or traffic. Interference with service to any user, host or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system and broadcast attacks. Forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.

Server Resource

Any website that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option of either paying extra (which depends on the resource needed) or reducing the resource used to an acceptable level. Golemweb shall be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level.

All shared web hosting accounts come with an initial minimal file allowance of 5000 files per domain.  Each block of 5000 files after the initial 5000 will be charged at $9.95/month rate. Any hosting account deemed to be adversely affecting the server performance or the network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.

CGi Scripts

Cgi script sharing with domains not hosted by Golemweb.com is not allowed.  Any cgi-scripts deemed to be adversely affecting the server performance or the network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.

Chat Rooms

Golemweb does not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. Chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot permit it as an account option. Golemweb does provide a choice of Java chatrooms for a small extra charge that should meet most users' needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine of our servers.

Background Running Programs and Cron Jobs

Golemweb may allow programs to run in the background.  These programs will be considered on an individual basis and extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. If you wish to run background programs please contact us at support@Golemweb.com before doing so.

IRC

Golemweb does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Golemweb will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.  If you engage in any of the foregoing activities using the service of another ISP or IPP, but channeling activities through a Golemweb server as a maildrop for responses, you are in violation.  Violators will be assessed a minimum of $200.00 fine and will face an immediate suspension.

Server abuse

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Golemweb server or customer of Golemweb is strictly prohibited.
