Canada Web Hosting's customers (each a "Customer") must exercise a high degree of judgment and responsibility with respect to their use of Canada Web Hosting's services and they must comply at all times with this Acceptable Use Policy (the "Policy"). If a Customer or any third party affiliate of a Customer engages in any of the prohibited conduct identified below, this Policy will be deemed to be violated and Canada Web Hosting reserves the right to terminate its relationship with the Customer, including any Hosting Agreement or Service Agreement then in effect with the Customer. Upon detection or notification of an alleged violation of the Policy and prior to exercising any right of termination, Canada Web Hosting will initiate an immediate investigation into the violation. During the period of investigation, hosting services and outgoing e-mail may be suspended from the offending IP address(s) to prevent further violations. If a Customer is found, in Canada Web Hosting's reasonable determination, to be in violation of this Policy, Canada Web Hosting may, at its discretion and without notice to the Customer, terminate the offending account and all services under any Hosting Agreement or Service Agreement then in effect with the Customer. No refunds or fees shall be repayable to the Customer in the event of such termination or during any period of suspension.

This includes but is not limited to: a) gaining or attempting to gain unauthorized access to servers or services. Such attempts include: "Internet scamming" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning, port scanning, probing, monitoring or testing for system or network vulnerabilities; b) introducing viruses, Trojan horses, trap doors, back doors, Easter eggs, worms, time bombs, packet bombs, cancel bots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; c) intentionally omitting, deleting, forging or misrepresenting transmission information, including headers, return addressing information and IP addresses; d) engaging in any of the foregoing activities using the service of another provider but channeling such activities through a Canada Web Hosting account or re-mailer or using a Canada Web Hosting account as a mail drop for responses to Unsolicited Commercial E mail ("UCE") or hosting a website that is advertised via UCE or otherwise requiring return transit through Canada Web Hosting's internet backbone; e) using IP addresses which were not assigned by Canada Web Hosting; or f) running Internet Relay Chat ("IRC") servers, bots or clients.
Please note: Busy or poorly scripted online chat systems, bulletin boards and other resource intensive applications may not be suitable for shared hosting services and can adversely affect the service of other customers. To avoid problems please consult with a Canada Web Hosting sales representative before installing these kinds of applications.

The Customer may not send SPAM or UCE over the Canada Web Hosting network. This includes third party "opt-in" lists. Canada Web Hosting's services must not be used to send UCE and will not host sites or information advertised in UCE. The Customer must also not host a publicly-accessible "open relay" SMTP or anonymous re-mailer service. The Customer is responsible for the actions of its users and must take all reasonable precautions to secure its servers and sites against SPAM exploits.
Please Note: Canada Web Hosting's email clusters will NOT process email lists. For security reasons, if you need to process a legitimate mail list you may use a Canada Web Hosting dedicated mail list server for this purpose. Please contact a Canada Web Hosting sales representative for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Customer may not use Canada Web Hosting's email clusters to offer end users email-only services. Unusual or excessive mail usage may be restricted by Canada Web Hosting. Unused email accounts must be deleted from the system. Canada Web Hosting reserves the right to disable email accounts on its email clusters it believes are inactive.

The Customer acknowledges that to facilitate efficient server management, inventory and related activities Canada Web Hosting servers may include a Canada Web Hosting administrative account and password and/or a Canada Web Hosting daemon. All reasonable precautions are made by Canada Web Hosting to maintain the security of these tools and the privacy of client data. The Customer will not tamper, hinder, delete or in anyway change the functioning of these tools.
Canada Web Hosting cannot monitor or control all the activities of the Customers. Subject to its right to terminate its agreements with a Customer which has violated this Policy, Canada Web Hosting exercises no control over Customer content and does not actively screen or censor the activities or content of Customers. The Customer, not Canada Web Hosting, assumes all responsibility and liability relating to its Internet activities.
