Abuse of Unlimited Traffic
RyTek Webs’s customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic for their web sites. The intention of RyTek Webs is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be ‘linked’ with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on RyTek Webs’s server. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of RyTek Webs management. Any customer who violates RyTek Webs’s Policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 2 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted period, the client will be billed for the overages.
RyTek Webs will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Unsolicited Email (Spam)
Unsolicited commercial advertisements (spam) are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account cancellation.
RyTek Webs takes a zero-tolerance approach to spam originating from our servers or for spam advertising of domains hosted on our servers. We will charge the compromised account up to $25 per unsolicited email message sent.
The following activities are not allowed: Unsolicited bulk or commercial messages (“spam”). This includes, but is not limited to, bulk mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements, charity requests, petitions for signatures, and political or religious tracts. Such messages may only be sent to those who have explicitly requested it from your domain. Forging, altering or removing electronic mail headers is prohibited. Any domain sending stealth spam will be terminated without warning and without refund. Sending numerous copies of the same or substantially similar message with the intent to disrupt a server or account (“mail bombing”). Spamming Newsgroups: Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account 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. Mail may not be used to harass or intimidate others. Harassment, whether through language, frequency of messages, or size of messages, is prohibited. Sending a single unwelcome message may be considered harassment. If a recipient asks to stop receiving e-mail, you must not send that person any further messages.
Note: If you use the services of another provider to promote a web site hosted by or through RyTek Webs (spamvertising), then the provisions of the above Policy shall apply as if the spam were sent through our servers.
