All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of IoM.me must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.

Before the Account Activation Date of each month, IoM.me shall deliver, by e-mail an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month.

Service Fees
Certain services carry a setup fee charged by IoM.me to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to IoM.me and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination.

Acceptable Use Policy
Revision date: 08 December 2014

As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, IoM.me offers its customer (also known as “Subscribers”) and their customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. IoM.me respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, IoM.me reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, IoM.me has developed an Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer’s respective service agreement, and is intended as a guide to the customer’s rights and obligations when using IoM.me’ services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.

One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that IoM.me cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because IoM.me cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, IoM.me cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.

When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that IoM.me does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over IoM.me network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of IoM.me, subscribers’ postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect IoM.me’s goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate IoM.me policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:

Spamming:
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward IoM.me, but also because it can overload the IoM.me network and disrupt service to IoM.me subscribers. When a complaint is received, IoM.me will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing.

Audio/Video Streaming:
Audio/Video Streaming is not hosting friendly. As such, IoM.me does not allow any streaming of audio or video content. Offending accounts will be suspended without notice or terminated.

Adult-Oriented Content:
IoM.me does not allow adult content and will suspend/terminate any offending account.

Large File Policy:
IoM.me is not for file hosting and distribution – as such, customers may not host any files larger than 50MB in size that are observed to be available for the sole purpose of download. Such files include but are not limited to .ISO, audio/video files, .EXE files. If you are unsure whether your file is against this policy, please e-mail [email protected]

Obscene Speech or Materials:
Using the IoM.me network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited. IoM.me is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through its network.

Defamatory or Abusive Language:
Using the IoM.me network as a means to transmit or post negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language.

Forging of Headers:
Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message.

Illegal or Unauthorized Access to Other Computers or Networks:
Accessing, illegally or without authorization, computers, accounts or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual’s system (often known as “hacking”). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity).

Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses or Other Destructive Activities:
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment.

Facilitation a Violation of this AUP:
Advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available any software, program, product or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail bombing, denial of service attacks and piracy of software.

Export Control Violations:
Exporting encryption software over the Internet or otherwise, to points outside the EU.

Other Illegal Activities:
Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including, but not limited to, advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards and pirating software.

Other Activities:
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that IoM.me determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. IoM.me will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that they comply with IoM.me policy or applicable law. However, when IoM.me becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action deemed appropriate by IoM.me.

IoM.me will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or received by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. IoM.me may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, IoM.me may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. IoM.me assumes no obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, IoM.me may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect IoM.me and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, IoM.me will never sell information to other services or outside companies.

Finally, IoM.me wishes to emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify IoM.me for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or IoM.me policy resulting in loss to IoM.me or the bringing of any claim against IoM.me by any third party. This means that, if IoM.me is sued because of a subscriber’s or customer of a subscriber’s activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against IoM.me, plus costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.

We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including IoM.me and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber’s violation of this AUP should be sent to [email protected]
