Site Wizards has a responsibility to protect each of our
clients and provide the best service possible. The
customer is expected to have a basic knowledge of how the
Internet functions, the types of use which are generally
acceptable on the Internet, and the types of use which are
to be avoided. Common sense is the best guide as to what
is considered acceptable use. Also common sense is the rule
when uploading files during high traffic usage times on
the Internet. Site Wizards offers space for your site on
our servers and has nothing to do whatsoever with your access
to reach our servers or the time it takes to upload, etc.
The following guidelines were designed to ensure these services.
All services provided by Site Wizards may be used for
lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation
of any information, data or material in violation of any
United States Federal, State, or City law is prohibited.
This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material,
material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material
protected by trade secrets and other statutes, violation
of U.S. export restrictions, harassment, fraud, trafficking
of obscene material, drug dealing, and other illegal activities.
The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless
from any claims resulting from the use of the service that
damages the subscriber or any other party.
NOTE: Pornography and sex-related merchandising is prohibited.
This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or links
to adult content elsewhere. 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.
Links to such materials are also prohibited. A few examples
of non-acceptable content or links are:
- pirated software
- hacker's programs or archives
- warez sites
- mp3 archives
Site Wizards will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes
a violation of this provision.
Any web site that uses a high amount of server resources
(such as CPU) will be given an option of either paying extra
(which depends on the resource needed) or reducing the resource
needed to an acceptable level. Misuse of system resources,
including but not limited to employing posts or programs
which consume excessive CPU time or storage space, permitting
use of mail services, mail forwarding capabilities, POP
accounts, or auto-responders other than for the customer's
own account, resale of access to CGI scripts installed on
Site Wizards's servers, or attempting to use a single customer
account for third party web sites by allowing more than
one domain pointer to be used to reference pages within
the customer's site will not be allowed. Site Wizards shall
be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server
EXCESSIVE BANDWIDTH USAGE
The monthly bandwidth allowance is listed on your Plan's
Feature Page. We will monitor your bandwidth as necessary
and will notify you if your traffic is exceeding your allowance.
Sites that exceed the traffic limits will be charged $5.00
per Gigabyte per month over the monthly allotment for the
Plan the customer has opted.
Site Wizards does not allow clients to install their own
chat rooms. Chat rooms tend to be a large system hog and
we cannot permit it as an account option. Site
provide chat rooms under certain Plans (see comparison chart
for availability) for free or a small extra fee that should
meet most users' needs and run without hindering the performance
of the servers. Non-Java chat rooms (cgi or perl based)
are not allowed.
BACKGROUND RUNNING PROGRAMS
Site Wizards may allow programs to run continually in
the background, these programs will be considered on an
individual basis and an extra charge will be incurred based
on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
If you wish to run background programs please contact us
before doing so.
Site Wizards does not allow IRC or IRC bots of ANY KIND,
NO MATTER HOW SMALL, to be operated on our servers.
Site Wizards supports e-Mail connectivity to
our servers directly. This means you specify POP3 and
SMTP server names in your e-Mail client to connect to us
directly to receive e-Mail on behalf of your domain.
FOREIGN DOMAIN REGISTRATIONS
Site Wizards will host any domain from any foreign registry;
however, the user is responsible for the registration of
any name not a .com, .org, .net, .biz, .info or .edu domain.
An .edu domain is for accredited, degree granting educational
institutions. EDU requests (if you feel you warrant an .edu
domain) are not guaranteed by Site Wizards and if not approved
by the InterNIC you may be forced to obtain an .org domain.
NET ABUSE USING E-MAIL
The sending of commercial advertising through e-Mail
(AKA spamming) from an Site Wizards server, referring to
a URL on an Site Wizards server, or using an e-Mail address
that is maintained on a Site Wizards server is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
This includes but is not limited to activities such as using
a non-existent e-Mail return address on a commercial solicitation,
allowing spamming by third parties to promote a web site
hosted by Site Wizards, trolling (posting outrageous messages
to generate numerous responses), mail bombing (sending multiple
messages without significant new content to the same user),
subscribing someone else to a mailing list without that
person's permission, cross posting articles to any newsgroup
without their permission, and commercial advertisements.
In general, any kind of commercial advertising in areas
on the Internet not intended for such purposes is prohibited.
Government laws construed as protecting this practice do
not apply. If you are found to have spammed, then we will
immediately, without warning, terminate your account with
no refund. In addition, we will impose a $100 penalty for
each spam policy violation. We reserve the right to refuse
or cancel service to known spammers. Lastly, we reserve
the right to determine what violates this policy.
GENERAL NET ABUSE

permission from the copyright holder is in strict violation
with federal laws, and will not be tolerated wihin the web
pages hosted by Site Wizards. If you are not an
customer, but believe an Site Wizards customer is
in violation of one or more copyright laws, please
email@example.com with the site URL and specifics
of the material believed to be in copyright violation. If
the material proves to be in copyright violation, we will
allow the customer/site owner the opportunity to immediately
remove the material. If the material is not removed within
48 hours of notice of proven violation, we will disable
the account until the customer/site owner complies with
our request to remove the material.
Linking to another web site for content and/or graphics
materials is considered "bandwidth theft." While bandwidth
theft is not currently considered a federal, state, or local
law, Site Wizards does NOT allow such activity.
If you have content that is being directly linked on the
pages of one of our customers and you have not granted
permission for such linkage, please immediately e-mail
with the site URL and specifics of the material being linked.
We will investigate the matter, and if a violation is indeed
in existence, we will allow the customer/site owner the
opportunity to immediately recitify the problem by removing
direct links. If the material is not removed within 48 hours
of notice of proven violation, we will disable the account
until the customer/site owner complies with our request
to remove the material.
Any Site Wizards client found to be in violation of either
copyright laws or bandwidth theft whose site is disabled
due to non-compliance within the stated 48 hour period will
receive no refund whatsoever for any downtime the site suffers
as a result.
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Site
server or using an e-Mail address that is maintained on
an Site Wizards machine is STRICTLY prohibited. We reserve
