Pornography, pirated software, mp3 archives, rom archives, cracking/hacking tools, and spamming are not allowed at Altechmind Web Services. Any material of this nature or links to material of this nature will cause the account to be shut down without financial refund. These types of sites waste bandwidth and slow down the servers. It is not realistic to allow one site to ruin the speed for all of the sites. Additionally, sites of this nature often place web hosts at legal risk, and therefore cannot be allowed.

Altechmind Web Services reserves the right to close any website that is using an unreasonable amount of bandwidth or server CPU time. This policy protects other web sites located within the same web server farm from becoming bogged down by the abusively high traffic site.

Clients that tax the machine down with malfunctioning pages or cgi scripts will lose their right to have dynamic pages (such as ASP, iHTML, and Cold Fusion. and cgi scripts). Everybody writes a code that locks up from time to time, but Altechmind Web Services will not allow one client’s scripts to ruin uptime or performance for the rest of the clients. Keep this policy in mind when uploading cgi scripts or dynamic pages, since you assume full responsibility for every file that you upload. If your cgi or other dynamic content is causing a noticeable performance bottleneck, your account will be disabled.

Failure to pay on time will result in the loss of the account. Altechmind Web Services wants to give premier support to paying customers. Therefore, Altechmind Web Services cannot waste time supporting those who do not pay.

In extreme cases, your account may also be closed. We do not and will not tolerate Spam. It is your responsibility to make sure your clients realize that Spam is not and will not be tolerated. Spam is a waste of our network and system resources, and we are completely intolerant of anybody who sends or attempts to send Spam.

We reserve the right to charge US$100 per spam message that is sent or attempted to be sent to or through any of our servers.
