Terms and Policies

Here we have compiled a set of terms and policies about Window Web Hosting. If your question is not answered here nor in any of our website page, please feel free to contact us.

  • Acceptable Use Policy

    All users of Window Web Hosting’s (hereafter refered to as WWH) services, and all customers upon signing up for WWH services, agree to comply with Window Web Hosting’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). The spirit of the AUP is to ensure customers are using WWH’s services with due regard to the rights of other Internet users and in conformity with the requirements of WWH’s network environment. The AUP are not exhaustive and WWH reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of its AUP at any time without notice, effective upon posting of the modified AUP to our site. Any complaints about a customer’s violation of the AUP should be sent to abuse@windowwebhosting.com. The AUP supersedes any other agreement with WWH, whether written, oral, by conduct, or otherwise.

    • [I] Web Hosting and E-commerce Customer Restrictions

    The following apply only to WWH’s Web Hosting customers, and supplement the terms in sections III and IV that applies to all WWH customers:

    » Server Resources

    Any web site that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to either pay additional fees (which will depend on the resources required), reduce the resources used to an acceptable level, or upgrade its service to a Dedicated Server plan. WWH will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Web Hosting and E-Commerce account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.

    » Spamming

    Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet (known as “spamming”) is prohibited, regardless of whether or not it overloads a server or disrupts service to WWH’s customers. The term “spamming” also includes, but is not limited to, maintaining an open SMTP policy, engaging in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP and referencing in the spam a web site hosted on a WWH server, and selling or distributing software (on a web site residing on a WWH server) that facilitates spamming. Violators will be assessed a fine and will face immediate suspension. WWH reserves the right to determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, what constitutes a violation of this provision.

    » CGI Scripts

    Any scripts that pose a potential security risk or are deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down or will be automatically removed without prior notice. WWH does not permit CGI script sharing with domains not hosted by WWH.

    » Chat Rooms

    WWH does not allow Web Hosting and E-Commerce customers to install their own chat rooms. Chat rooms tend to require significant system resources and therefore cannot be permitted as an account option. However, for a small charge, WWH provides Java chat rooms that meet most users’ needs and run without hindering system performance.

    » Background Running Programs and Cron Jobs

    WWH may allow programs to run in the background. These programs will be considered on an individual basis and Web Hosting and E-Commerce customers will incur extra charges based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. If you wish to run background programs please contact WWH support staff so that we can arrange set-up.

    » IRC

    WWH does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated by Web Hosting and E-Commerce customers.

    • [II] WWH Dedicated Server Customer Restrictions

    The following Terms of Use apply only to WWH’s Dedicated Server customers, and supplement the terms in sections III and IV that apply to all WWH customers:

    »  Customer Security Responsibilities

    The customer is solely responsible for any breaches of security affecting servers under customer control. If a customer’s server is involved in an attack on another server or system, it will be shut down and an immediate investigation will be launched to determine the cause/source of the attack. In such event, the customer is responsible for the cost to rectify any damage done to the customer’s server and any other requirement affected by the security breach.

    » IRC

    WWH allows Dedicated Server customers the use of IRC inside the WWH network as long as the use of IRC on a WWH server does not violate any of the other terms of these AUP. As a policy, WWH will not provide vanity IRC reverse DNS records. To enforce this policy WWH does not turn the reverse address of IPs over to the customer. Authority over this information remains with WWH.

    » Billing for Network Resources

    The customer understands that the customer is responsible for paying for any network resources that are used to connect the customer’s server to the Internet. The customer may request that the customer’s server be disconnected from the Internet, but the customer will still be responsible for paying for any network resources used up to the point of suspension or cancellation.

    • [III] All Window Web Hosting Customers

    » System and Network Abuse

    Violations of system or network security are prohibited and may result in criminal and civil liability. Examples of system or network security violations include, without limitation the following: unauthorized access to or use of data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without express authorization of the owner of the system or network; 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.

    » Adult Content

    Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on WWH servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content or provide links to adult content elsewhere.

    » Child Pornography

    The use of WWH’s services to store, post, display, transmit, advertise or otherwise make available child pornography is prohibited. WWH is required by law, and will, notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on, or being transmitted through, its services.

    » Privacy

    WWH is concerned with the privacy of on-line communications and web sites. In general, the Internet is neither more nor less secure than other means of communication, including mail, facsimile, and voice telephone service, all of which can be intercepted and otherwise compromised. As a matter of prudence, however, WWH urges its customers to assume that all of their on-line communications are insecure. WWH cannot take any responsibility for the security of information transmitted over WWH’s facilities. Additional details on privacy and WWH’s use of customer information can be found in WWH’s Privacy Statement.

    » Customer Responsibility

    Customers are required to use the WWH network responsibly. This includes respecting the other customers of WWH. WWH reserves the right to suspend and/or cancel service with any customer who uses the WWH network in such a way that adversely affects other WWH customers. While WWH may monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily, as a general practice, WWH does not monitor its customers’ communications or activities to determine whether they are in compliance with the AUP. However, when WWH becomes aware of any violation of the AUP or other user agreements, WWH may take any action to stop or correct such violation, including, but not limited to, denying access to WWH’s services and equipment or to the Internet. In addition, WWH may take action against a customer or a customer of such customer because of the activities of such customer. WWH anticipates that customers who offer Internet services will cooperate with WWH in any corrective or preventive action that WWH deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of WWH policy and WWH reserves the right to take any such action even though such action may affect other customers of the WWH customer.

    » Actions Taken by Window Web Hosting

    The failure by a customer to meet or follow any of the AUP is grounds for account deactivation. WWH will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of the AUP. WWH reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice and to refuse service to anyone at any time. When WWH becomes aware of an alleged violation of its AUP, WWH will initiate an investigation. During the investigation, WWH may restrict a customer’s access in order to prevent further potentially unauthorized activity. Depending on the severity of the violation, WWH may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer’s web hosting account and/or pursue other civil remedies. If such violation is a criminal offense, WWH will notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of such violation. An unlisted activity may also be a violation of the AUP if it is illegal, irresponsible, or constitutes disruptive use of the Internet. WWH does not issue credits for outages incurred through service disablement resulting from AUP violations. Violators of the policy are responsible, without limitations, for the cost of labor to rectify any damage done to the operation of the network and business operations supported by the network, and to respond to complaints incurred by WWH.

    » Indemnification

    » Termination for Bankruptcy or Insolvency

    If a customer becomes insolvent or any bankruptcy petition is filed by the customer, or any third party against the customer, WWH may immediately terminate provision of WWH’s services to the customer without prior notice or penalty.
