METAPROS HOSTING ACCOUNT TERMS OF SERVICE AND
ACCEPTABLE USAGE POLICY

MetaPros™ Website Solutions provides web hosting to many clients, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to ensure these obligations are met.

Furthermore, these Policies, Guidelines, and Disclaimer are intended for all domains residing on MetaPros™ Website Solutions servers.

Content:
All services provided by MetaPros™ Website Solutions 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 secret and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless MetaPros™ Website Solutions from any claims resulting from the use of the service that damages the subscriber or any other party.

Pornography and sex-related merchandising is prohibited on all MetaPros™ Website Solutions servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or links to adult content elsewhere. MetaPros™ Website Solutions will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision.

Also prohibited are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to MetaPros™ Website Solutions servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

  • Pirated software
  • Hacker programs or archives
  • Warez sites
  • Information related to the misuse of credit cards, phones and computers
  • Occult or satanic related material or links to such material, even if legal, is not an acceptable use of MetaPros' servers
  • Website material containing profanity, discrimination towards other people (hate literature), or material that advocates illegal or dangerous acts is not an acceptable use of MetaPros' servers.
  • Any Site that consumes more than 20% of system resources

Following are a list of sites that will often require more than 20% of our systems resources: Multiple domains residing at a single IP address, domains with archives or galleries, (i.e. .gif, .jpg, .exe, .zip, .tar, etc.), and domain accounts offering download files.

MetaPros™ Website Solutions will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

If your account is found to contain illegal activity, Illegal MP3 Files, Pirated software, hacker programs, Warez programs, or any other illegal files, your account will be terminated immediately without prior notice and a $50.00 handling fee will apply. Also, proper authorities will be notified.

Monthly data transfer:
All hosting accounts have a maximum monthly data transfer limit.  The account's amount of data transfer used and amount remaining is shown in the "Resources Available" section of the hosting account's Account Manager.  The monthly period begins on the first day of the calendar month and ends on the last day of the calendar month.  It is the client's responsibility to monitor the account's usage.  If the usage approaches or exceeds the limit, the client is to take steps to either:
- prevent the usage from exceeding the maximum (i.e. identify and remedy the cause of the high usage - large graphic files, etc), or
- Increase the transfer limit by upgrading the account to one with a larger maximum data transfer allocation, or by adding an "additional data transfer" package to the account.
In the event that the account exceeds the transfer limit, MetaPros will charge the account per the billing policy.

Email - Commercial Advertising and/or Unsolicited Email:
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from any MetaPros™ Website Solutions server or using an email address or domain that is maintained on an MetaPros™ Website Solutions machine as reference is STRICTLY prohibited. MetaPros™ Website Solutions will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Chat Rooms:
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be a large drain on system resources and we cannot allow it as an account option.
