No refunds of fees paid will be made if account termination is due to violation of the terms outlined below. Clients may not run IRC, bots or clients. Unacceptable uses also include, but are NOT limited to: Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailing, newsgroup spamming, pornographic content, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, illegal MP3's, warez, cracks, software serial numbers, and/or anything else determined by Justin Hanbury to be unacceptable use of Justin Hanbury's services including abuse of server resources.

Accounts may be terminated that include the following content or which have links to the following content:

Providing material that is grossly offensive to the Web community including blatant expressions of bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity. Promoting or providing instructional information about illegal activities, or promoting physical harm or injury against any group or individual. Displaying material containing obscene nudity or pornographic material. Displaying material that exploits children under 18 years of age. Acts of copyright infringement including offering pirated computer programs or links to such programs, information used to circumvent manufacturer-installed copy-protect devices, including serial or registration numbers for software programs, or any type of cracker utilities

MP3's
Any MP3 that is not copyright by you, is NOT allowed on the servers. However, if the MP3 does not have a copyright, or if it is only available for free via the internet (not SOLD in stores or on the internet) then it is allowed on the servers. If you are found with MP3's, you will be suspended, and if you do not delete them, terminated.

Abuse of Traffic and Bandwidth:
Justin Hanbury's clients are privileged to be offered a lot of traffic for their web sites. The intention of Justin Hanbury is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be 'linked' with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on Justin Hanbury's 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 Justin Hanbury. Any client who violates Justin Hanbury's 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 period, the client will be billed for the overages.

Unsolicited Email (Spam):
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. Upon your first Spam offense your mail will be disabled for 72 hours. Upon your second Spam offense your entire domain will be disabled for 72 hours. Upon your third offense your account with Justin Hanbury will be terminated. No refunds will be given if your account is terminated for Spam.

CGI Scripts:
Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however I reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation without prior warning.

Abuse of SMTP Mail Server:
I do not allow clients to send more than 2000 pieces of e-mail per day. If you do send more than 2000 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse.

Background Running Programs:
I 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.

IRC:
I currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Backups:
I strongly recommend having a COMPLETE backup of your site/data on your computer at all times. I am not responsible for lost data on my servers.

Payment Policies:
All accounts are set up on a month-to-month basis. All pricing is guaranteed for the term of monthly payments. Justin Hanbury 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 client is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the client notifies Justin Hanbury by email (hanburyju@digitalageweb.net) requesting termination of services. All payment is in U.S. currency. Justin Hanbury will bill each client $25 per returned check and $25 per wire transfer received.

Cancellation:
Justin Hanbury reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by Justin Hanbury if Justin Hanbury institutes this 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 Justin Hanbury's web hosting plans are backed by a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with my services or support within the first 30 days of service, you will be given a full refund of the service amount. For web hosting services of 1 months or less, the full contract amount less any overages will be refunded if Justin Hanbury is notified within the first 30 days following activation. No refund is available after the 30th day. This policy does not apply to any additional services such as overages, referrer logs, real audio/video, additional disk space, additional IP's, additional pop accounts, etc.

Cancellation of service must be done as the following:

Send an email to hanburyju@digitalageweb.net with your domain name, username, password, and a full statement allowing cancellation of service.

Your files WILL BE DELETED when I receive this email. Phone or email requests will not constitute acceptance of any cancellation and a refund will NOT be given if cancellation is not properly requested. Refunds will be made by check or issued back to your credit card within 30 days of receipt of cancellation, if a refund is due.
