Opt-in Email Marketing
If you choose to engage in marketing your site and/or services via email please heed the following. The only permitted form of email marketing is that in which the list is “opt-in”. By definition, opt-in is where people provide you with their email address specifically requesting to be on your email list for information about your site and/or service. If we find your account transmitting email to persons that did not authorize such activity, that is grounds to suspend and terminate your site. Note: On the flip side, the joining of an opt-in email list does not guarantee the legitimacy of such a list. Please contact us before taking any steps so that you will not be a victim of spam from second and third parties of such lists.

UCE, UBE, Spam
SINPZ has a zero tolerance policy regarding unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and unsolicited bulk email (UBE) also known as “spam”. The definition of spam:
An electronic message is “spam” IF: (1) the recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; AND (2) the recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; AND (3) the transmission and reception of the message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.

You will be cited with “UCE/UBE Abuse” if you send any email to persons who have not specifically asked to receive email from you. The sending origin of such email is irrelevant. Upon confirmation of abuse, any SINPZ customer engaging in this practice will have their service suspended. Not only does spam place a strain on the server that can negatively effect that server’s uptime record and performance record, you subject that server to the possibility of being blacklisted.

If your site will be sending mailings out to subscribers, this is a checklist of what you are required to do:

# You must not try to hide, forge or misrepresent the sender of the e-mail and sending site of the e-mail.

# Bulk mailings must specifically state how the persons’ e-mail addresses were obtained and must indicate the frequency of the mailing.

# Bulk mailings should contain simple and obvious unsubscribe mechanisms. We recommend that this be in the form of a working link to a one-click unsubscribe system; however, a valid “reply to:” address may be used instead.

# All subscription based e-mail must have valid, non-electronic, contact information for the sending organization in the text of each e-mail including either a phone number or physical mailing address.

# All bulk e-mail must be solicited, meaning that the sender has an existing and provable relationship with the e-mail recipient and the recipient has not requested not to receive future mailings from the sender. Documentation of the relationship between the sender and the recipient must be made available to AOL upon request.

Prohibited Uses of SINPZ Hosting Systems and Services Regarding Spam

# Sending Unsolicited Bulk Email (”UBE”, “spam”). The sending of any form of Unsolicited Bulk Email through SINPZ servers is prohibited. Likewise, the sending of UBE from another service provider advertising a web site, email address or utilizing any resource hosted on SINPZ servers, is prohibited. SINPZ accounts or services may not be used to solicit customers from, or collect replies to, messages sent from another Internet Service Provider where those messages violate this Policy or that of the other provider.

# Running Unconfirmed Mailing Lists. Subscribing email addresses to any mailing list without the express and verifiable permission of the email address owner is prohibited. All mailing lists run by SINPZ customers must be Closed-loop (”Confirmed Opt-in”). The subscription confirmation message received from each address owner must be kept on file for the duration of the existence of the mailing list. Purchasing lists of email addresses from 3rd parties for mailing to from any SINPZ-hosted domain, or referencing any SINPZ account, is prohibited.

The client is responsible for securing their username/password. The client assumes responsibility for all material on their site that may be put on by a third party (such as the usage of Free For All links pages). Use of SINPZ ’s service requires a certain level of knowledge in the use of Internet languages, protocols, and software. This level of knowledge varies depending on the anticipated use and desired content of the web space by the client.

Backups
SINPZ takes extreme steps to maintain system integrity. However, SINPZ shall not be held responsible for loss of data due to any cause. To ensure the highest level of data protection, SINPZ recommends that ALL information be backed up on your own computer. As with any data that you hold a high importance to, it should be in more than one location at all times. All SINPZ data backups are designed against hardware failure not customer user error.

Actions
The failure by a customer to meet or follow any of the above policies/terms is grounds for account deactivation. SINPZ will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of the AUP. SINPZ reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice.

When SINPZ becomes aware of an alleged violation of its AUP, SINPZ will initiate an investigation. During the investigation, SINPZ may restrict a customer’s access in order to prevent further potentially unauthorized activity. Depending on the severity of the violation, SINPZ may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer’s web hosting account and/or pursue other civil remedies. If such violation is a criminal offense, SINPZ will notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of such violation.

SINPZ does not issue credits for outages incurred through service disablement resulting from AUP violations.

SINPZ customers agree to indemnify and hold harmless SINPZ from any claims resulting from the use of our services that damages them or any other party. The SINPZ service is provided on an as is, as available basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. SINPZ expressly disclaims any representation or warranty that the SINPZ service will be error-free, secure or uninterrupted. No oral advice or written information given by SINPZ, its employees, licensors or the like, will create a warranty; nor may you rely on any such information or advice. SINPZ and its partners and suppliers will not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any transaction or use of the service.

Modification
SINPZ reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of this policy at any time without notice.

Refusal of Service
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion. An example of refusal of service is if an account continues to abuse our policies after warnings. Refusal, cancellation or suspension of services especially holds true to issues with spam or any script abuse. Another example of refusal of service is if a customer becomes very unreasonable, unprofessional, extremely difficult to work with or threatening. Said customer’s account will be suspended and we will recommend to the customer to find a new host. A backup of the account(s) will be provided.

Resource Abuse Policy (RAP)
Any website on our shared servers that uses a high amount of server resources (CPU, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option to pay for a dedicated server. The abuse and misuse of system resources is a serious problem, and SINPZ does not tolerate it. Accounts on a shared server must be shared with other users, so we must limit how much of the CPU and memory that can be used by any one account.

In all fairness, we cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the system resources on a shared machine and have all other clients suffer because of it. Excessive CPU & memory usage by one or more clients causes extreme slowness in all areas: MySQL, Email, HTTP and more. If the CPU & memory usage by a few clients gets out of hand, all sites hosted on the machine will return errors and not be accessible in any way.

There are special exceptions to these rules to be determined at the time we discover abuse. There are different combinations of usage that can create problems and other special cases. At any given time a server is unstable and an account is found to be the cause, we reserve the right to suspend the account to keep the server online and operating normally. If the usage is an increasing trend, we recommend the user invest in a dedicated server so the website can grow at a normal rate without restriction.
