All customers must agree to comply with CISS Networking's Terms and Conditions of Use prior to sign up. This policy was created to ensure that all of our customers receive equally high quality service.
Due to the high system and network demands of adult-oriented sites or links, pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited. 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, or provide links to such sites.
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; or other intellectual property rights used without proper authorization; material that is obscene, defamatory,or constitutes an illegal threat. Examples of unacceptable content or links include: Warez sites, hacker programs, copyrighted MP3, and IRC bots. CISS Networking reserves all rights to refuse such content from our servers.
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, probing, or scanning of CISS Networking's servers and network; interference with service to any user, host, or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system, broadcast attacks; spoofing or modifying of any TCP-IP packet header or any other header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.
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) or reduce the resources used to an acceptable level. CISS Networking shall be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any web hosting account deemed to be adversely affecting server or network performance will be shut down without prior notice.
Any CGI-scripts deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.
