Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)


HOSTSELLERS' Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is provided to give our customers a clear understanding of what HOSTSELLERS proper and acceptable use of our service(s).

The use of HOSTSELLERS services represents acceptance and agreement to HOSTSELLERS' AUP as well as HOSTSELLERS' Terms of Service (TOS) and any other Policies as posted to our website.

We accept your use of our service; therefore we do not actively monitor activity under normal conditions.  Furthermore, we do not implement editorial control over the content of any Web site.  This includes Email sending, newsgroup or other material created or available over or through the services, except for certain proprietary websites.  However, in accordance with our Terms of Service, we hold full authority to remove any materials that, in our individual judgment, may be illegal, may subject us to liability or which may violate this Acceptable Use Policy.  HOSTSELLERS reserves the right to oblige with legal establishment and/or third parties in the examination of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrongdoing. Violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or immediate termination of your HOSTSELLERS account and/or services.

We do not routinely monitor the activity of accounts except for measurements of system exploitation, possible security or fraud risks and the preparation of billing records. However, in our efforts to promote good citizenship within the Internet society, we will respond appropriately if we become aware of improper use of our service.

You may not use your hosting account to circulate matters, which HOSTSELLERS determines, at its sole prudence, to be illegitimate, licentious or abhorrent. For purposes of this policy, "matters" refer to all forms of connections including narrative descriptions, graphics (including photographs, illustrations, images, drawings and logos), executable programs, video recordings and audio recordings.

If a HOSTSELLERS account is used to violate our AUP or our TOS, we reserve the right to cease your service without notice. We prefer to advise customers of inappropriate activities and any necessary corrective action. However, blatant violations of the AUP will result in instantaneous termination of service. Our failure to implement this policy, for whatever reason, shall not be interpreted as a waiver of our right to do so at any time.

As a member of our hosting community, you must use your hosting account access responsibly.
