WEB HOST TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Virtual Resource Systems Web Hosting Statement of Purpose and Acceptable Use Policy
(Terms and Conditions) as of October 1, 2010) -- Go to: HOSTED SITES

 

The primary purpose of Virtual Resource Systems Web Hosting is to provide businesses a start-up web presence with minimally required web pages and low overhead.  The impact today is for all businesses to have a web presence to enhance all real world business transactions; staying competitive means ensuring your services and product information are readily available even when you are not physically present. Our goal is to get you up and running in a short amount of time.  We will consider most suggestions as long as they are legal and do not interfere with our primary purpose nor our terms and conditions of our acceptable use policy.  We can not guarantee the privacy of our users' e-mail and files on; however, we do our best to maintain a secure environment and we are personally dedicated to the privacy of our users. Towards this end:
 

- We will never intentionally read a user's e-mail except upon request of that user.
 

- The only user-owned files we may examine without the user's permission are standard system files; for example, .login, .cshrc, and .rhosts. We will not read a user's .newsrc file; however, we may run

software that will examine each user's .newsrc file and tally statistics on our user community as a whole.

- If we believe the contents of a user's web site is in jeopardy per legal basis, or our primary purpose, we may ask for an explanation, to view the file, or that the file be removed from our systems.

In general, no user processes are authorized.  If you have a specific need or desire to run processes, it must be reviewed and approved  for use; just contact us. Once again our web host purpose is to provide

a quick start-up web presence for as long as needed.  We do not distribute our users' personal information, including that which may normally be found online.  Those under the age of 18 will not be given an account without the validation and signature of a parent or legal guardian.  We reserve the right to suspend or terminate a user's account for any reason. Some examples of what may result in account termination:
 

- Breaching, or attempting to breach security on any system or network without the written authorization of those responsible for said hosting, system and/or network.

- Forging e-mail or news articles. That is, attempting to make articles or e-mail appear to come from someone or somewhere they do not.

- Propagating chain letters via e-mail, Usenet news, or other Internet services. These letters are usually along the lines of "pass this on", "send this to x number of people", good luck, bad luck, blessing, health, , etc, etc, or likewise other types of content facilitating to include, but not limited to: chain email, spam, denial or distributed denial of service and/or any forms of malware and/or limiting confidentiality, availability, and integrity.

- Sharing your web host. The web host service is for the business or person intended and not for starting up your own web host.  We do not allow host subletting, so to speak.  The web site host acquisition is strictly for the purpose intended when the host was requested during the survey application.  Any change in the content to include, but not limited to: ownership, intended business, and or specific content managed that does not have a strong basis for inclusion must get approval from VRS.  VRS reserves the right to determine whether material, or material change is suitable and congruent with this policy.  When in doubt, inquiry with VRS before making questionable changes.

- Extreme violations of netiquette. (Inappropriate internet behavior). The Internet is frequently described as the last forum for free speech. People regularly clash loudly over such matters as race, religion, sexual preference, and political standing. It is difficult to be involved with the Net Community (NC) for any length of time without being offended by someone.  It is also quite possible to do the offending. We will investigate any complaints we receive, either by our users or others, but action will rarely be warranted. We may suggest a more appropriate arena, such as a newsgroup or forum to use, or perhaps a different approach. If the web host owner does not wish to comply, we may take additional action; removal of account, and forfeiture of remaining service or other solutions per incident.

- If a user's presence on our systems jeopardizes our primary purpose or acceptable and terms of use, we may suspend or terminate that user's account.

- Automating any communication via your web host for purposes not deemed congruent with our acceptable use or terms of use policy will result in termination.
 

We reserve the right to issue a warning in lieu of terminating or suspending an account.  We ask that businesses, organizations, or individuals who would like to add advertising to their site contact us first. Advertising is a touchy subject on the Internet, and the more overt methods can meet with an overwhelming negative response. There are a variety of effective methods of advertising without bringing down the wrath of the Net Community (NC), and we would like the opportunity to direct users to them.  For the following "Terms and Conditions", the Provider, represents Virtual Resource Systems.
