Copyright Violations
Seacoast Web Services will respond to all reports of infringement that are formatted in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and any other applicable copyright laws. Notices of infringement that do not comply with this act will not be processed. We will act in accordance with the DMCA when handling infringement reports.

System Resource Usage
If Seacoast Web Services's system administration team determines that a customer's account is utilizing an unacceptable amount of system resources, Seacoast Web Services may temporarily deactivate the account in question. If Seacoast Web Services's staff deems necessary, an eviction notice may be sent to the customer of an offending account providing them with ten (10) days in which to either upgrade to a dedicated server or locate a new provider. This only occurs in extreme cases.

Seacoast Web Services will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Because of the nature of this provision, each account will be considered and analyzed individually.

Domain Parking Circumvention
Any attempt to circumvent domain parking restrictions by using selective HTTP redirects or any other method to send traffic from parked domains to sites other than the main site is strictly prohibited. If multiple domain names with separate content are required, domain pointers must be used instead.

Chat Rooms
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as a account option. Clients are free to use any and all of the three chat systems that come pre-installed on all accounts.

Background Running Programs (bots/daemons/monitors)
Customers are not permitted to run programs in the background on shared hosting servers. This tends to use a lot of system resources, and can impair service to other customers on that server.

Backups
Seacoast Web Services's hosting accounts include a nightly backup service, however these backups are for Seacoast Web Services's administrative purposes only, and are in NO WAY GUARANTEED! Customers are responsible for maintaining their own backups on their own personal computers. Seacoast Web Services does not provide any sort of compensation for lost or incomplete data in the event that backups do not function properly (even if the malfunction was due to negligence on Seacoast Web Services's part). We will do our best to ensure complete and accurate backups, but assume no responsibility for this duty. Always back your site up to your personal computer! We make no guarantees about the availability of backups.

Support Abuse
At Seacoast Web Services, we always treat our customers with the utmost respect. In return, we expect the same from you. If our staff feels that you are consistently addressing them in a demeaning or rude manner, your account may be suspended and you may be asked to take your business elsewhere. In the event that we terminate service for support abuse, customers will be given ten (10) days notice to find a new host. We will issue a refund only for the unused portion of pre-paid service.

Note: Due to our extremely high customer satisfaction rate, we have never had to invoke this clause.

Cron Jobs
We do allow Cron Jobs to be conducted on our servers. You can setup and manage the cron jobs for your account from the "Cron" section of NetAdmin.

IRC (Internet Relay Chat)
We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers. Any account found to be in violation of this provision will be immediately suspended and/or deactivated and no refund will be issued.

Shell Access
Shell access is provided on an as-needed basis. It does not come enabled on accounts by default. A request for this feature must be sent to technical support before it can be used. The request must include a domain name, username and explanation of why shell access is required. We reserve the right to refuse this service to any customer for any reason.

Unsolicited Email (SPAM)
SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a Seacoast Web Services server or using a return email address that is maintained on a Seacoast Web Services server is STRICTLY prohibited. Using SPAM to advertise a site hosted on Seacoast Web Services's network also constitutes as a violation of this provision. Seacoast Web Services will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Sites found to be in violation of our SPAM policies will be immediately deactivated and no refund will be issued.

Help us STOP SPAM! Please email our abuse department immediately to report a violation of our SPAM policies.

Server Abuse
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Seacoast Web Services server or customer of Seacoast Web Services is strictly prohibited.

Seacoast Web Services will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers found in violation of this provision will be subject to account deactivation without refund. Seacoast Web Services will turn all available information about abuse incidents, including customer contact data, over to the proper authorities and press charges.

Failure to Follow Policies
Failure to fully comply with these terms is grounds for account suspension and/or deactivation (with or without refund, subject to Seacoast Web Services's discretion). Any accounts and/or servers contained within Seacoast Web Services's network must adhere to the above policies.

We reserve the right to remove any account without prior notice. If we deactivate your account for violating policy, you will forfeit your rights to a refund--and none will be given. No refunds for advanced payment. Our normal policy is a warning first, and account deactivation the second offense, but no warning is required.

Seacoast Web Services reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site hosted on our servers that contains any content that it deems in its sole discretion to be unacceptable, undesirable or contraindicated.
