Abuse of Traffic and Bandwidth:
The intention of DebSpace.com 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 DebSpace.com's or their affiliate server. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, or a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of DebSpace.com management. Any customer who violates DebSpace.com'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.

To maintain the integrity of our service the following limitations apply Unless Prior Approval is Obtained from DebSpace.com Management:

Sites with banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains. Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred is graphics) Sites offering download files or archives. (This is any site where 50% or more of there monthly traffic is from file downloads). Sites using more than 30% of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. Sites running multimedia files (QuickTime, Real Audio, Real Video, MP3).  **Affiliate Sites are Allowed**

For those that do not qualify for the unlimited service, traffic will go unmonitored until you reach your bandwidth allotted per month. Thereafter, normal data transfer cost of $20.00/1GB/month will be billed to your account. If you want to pre-pay for bandwidth overages, you will be billed $10.00/1GB/month.  It is the customers responsibility to monitor bandwidth usage.  You will receive an e-mail or phone notice when you have gone over your allotted bandwidth.  DebSpace.com may temporarily disable your website, until contact is made with the client, if DebSpace.com deems the bandwidth overage excessive.

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 and you will be fined $100.00 per sent Spam. Upon your third offense your account with DebSpace.com will be terminated, you will be fined $200.00 per sent Spam. No refunds will be given if your account is terminated for Spam.

GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW

  1. The email MUST include a Valid From Address and a Valid Recipient Address.

  2. The mail list must only send to actual names and cannot be sent in groups of more than 5(five)-10 (ten) at a time unless prior approval is obtained.
