Specific Acceptable Use Policies are detailed
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm
to a server, or customer, of Sophia Solutions is strictly prohibited.
Sophia Solutions will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an
Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Such attempts
include "internet scamming" (tricking other people into releasing their
passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning etc.
unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a Sophia Solutions customer, whether or
not the attacked account or computer belongs to Sophia Solutions, will result in
action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account
suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal legal action, depending on the
seriousness of the attack.
Abuse of Traffic
be unrestricted until your usage reaches an average rate of 2 GB of network
traffic per month. Thereafter, normal data transfer cost of $50.00/GB/month will
be billed to your account to pay for your overages and for all subsequent
months. If you do not pay for your overages your site will be disabled within 3
days of your first notice.
Data transfer is measured by measuring the lowest
95% of your traffic patterns.
Sophia Solutions will be the sole arbiter as to
what constitutes a violation of this provision.
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 and you will be fined $100.00 per sent
Spam. Upon your second Spam offense your entire domain will be disabled for 72
hours and you will be fined $200.00 per sent Spam. Upon your third offense your
