Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy

Terms of Service (TOS) and Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)


Introduction
This Terms of Service (TOS) and Accepatable Use Policy (AUP) is an agreement ("Agreement") between Customer and L3server, a division of BASIC Networks Corp., and applies to Customer's account(s) with L3server. PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY and retain it for future reference. Please note that the information contained herein is subject to change without notice. Customer agrees to periodically consult this website for changes or amendments to this Agreement. L3server may, but is under no obligation to, provide notices of any amendment, modification or update of this Agreement via e-mail to Customers. BY CHECKING THE "YES" BUTTON IN THE ORDER FORM AS REGARDS TO HAVING READ AND AGREED TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, AND/OR REGISTERING FOR AND USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AS WELL AS ALL POLICIES AND GUIDELINES OF THE AUP, WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE.

General Provisions
While using Services provided by L3server you agree to the following terms and conditions.

Definitions

  1. "We" "Us" "Provider" or "L3server" refers to L3server, a division of BASIC Networks Corp., and
  2. "You" "Your" "Client" or "Customer" refers to each person or entity who applies for internet service or is a designate of any one who applies for internet service with L3server.

Services Provided by L3server
L3server will rent Internet server space ("Services") and dedicated servers to its customers for the purpose of allowing customers to provide http internet content to the general public. The Services allow L3server customers to maintain internet websites, receive and maintain e-mail accounts, and access web space via FTP to upload files for their websites. L3server customers will use the provided Services in a manner consistent with all applicable State and Federal laws. L3server will make no effort to edit, control, monitor or restrict the content of data other than as necessary to provide Services. If any of the activities referenced below are committed, L3server may immediately terminate Customer's account(s) without notice. L3server will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Customer Use of Services

  1. Customer Security Obligation: Each Customer must use reasonable care in keeping each VPS account or dedicated server and/or network devices attached to L3server infrastructure up-to-date and patched with the latest security updates. Failure to use reasonable care to protect a server may result in a security compromise by outside sources. L3server is not responsible for Customer server level security unless a security administration package, firewall security administration package or fully managed operating system package is contracted for and maintained. A compromised server creating network interference will result in immediate Customer notification and will be disconnected from the network immediately so as to not directly affect other Customers. No service credits will be issued for outages resulting from disconnection due directly to breached server security. The Customer is solely responsible for any breaches of security affecting servers under Customer control, including repairing the system, terminating the account(s) of the abusive user(s), and reporting occurrence of the issue to L3server by email. If a Customer intentionally creates a security breach, the cost to resolve any damage to Customer's server or other servers will be charged directly to the Customer. The labor used to resolve such damage is categorized as emergency security breach recovery and is currently charged at $80.00 USD per hour.
  2. Disk Space, Client Content, and Bandwidth Usage: L3server offers server space to its VPS hosting clients. Disk space cannot be increased. We reserve the right to not host any website that consumes more than the disk space or bandwidth coming with the hosting plan client signed up for. Owners of VPS plans are welcome to resell hosting accounts. Client agrees that webpages and files uploaded to our servers will not violate any state, federal or foreign laws or regulations; infringe on any intellectual property rights of L3server or any third party; be defamatory, slanderous or trade libelous; be threatening or harassing; be discriminatory based on gender, race, age; promote hate; or contain viruses or other computer programming defects which result in damage to L3server or any third party. Customers may not run IRC bots or clients. Unacceptable uses of our service also include: Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailings, newsgroup spamming, pornographic content or links to adult websites, nudity, copyrighted MP3s, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, warez, cracks, or software serial numbers. L3server will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this policy. L3server offers a set amount of data transfer per VPS plan or server. Bandwidth is calculated by calendar month. Bandwidth cannot be combined with multiple plans or servers. Bandwidth overcharge is priced at $28 per 50 GB. Customer is solely responsible for monitoring his/her bandwidth usage.
  3. System and Network Security: Violations of system or network security are strictly prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. L3server investigates all incidents involving such violations and will cooperate with law enforcement if a criminal violation is suspected.
    Examples of system or network security violations include, without limitation, the following:
    - Introduction of malicious programs into the network or server (example: viruses, worms, Trojan Horses, key loggers, and other executables intended to inflict harm).

    - Effecting security breaches or disruptions of Internet communication and/or connectivity. Security breaches include, but are not limited to, accessing data of which the Customer is not an intended recipient or logging into a server or account that the Customer is not expressly authorized to access. For purposes of this section, "disruption" includes, but is not limited to port scans, flood pings, email-bombing, packet spoofing, IP spoofing and forged routing information.
    - Executing any form of network activity that will intercept data not intended for the Customer's server.
    - Circumventing user authentication or security of any host, network or account, including “cracking.”
    - Running IRC bots or clients
    - Interfering with or denying service to any user, host, or network other than the Customer's host (example: denial of service attack or distributed denial of service attack).
    - Conduct designed to avoid restrictions or access limits to specific services, hosts, or networks, including but not limited to the forging of packet headers (“spoofing”) or other identification information.
    - Using any program script/command, or sending messages of any kind, designed to interfere with or to disable, a user's terminal session, via any means, locally or via the Internet.
  4. No "Spam": UCE/UBE or "Spam" originating from a L3server account, or associated with a L3server account, is not tolerated. This includes any e-mail that promotes web sites hosted on a L3server account but is sent from an e-mail address not associated with that L3server account. Client shall not use their L3server services for chain letters, junk mail, bulk-email, or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process. In the absence of positive, verifiable proof to the contrary, which must be provided before the mail campaign is initiated, L3server considers complaints by recipients of emails to be de-facto proof that the recipient did not subscribe or otherwise request the email(s) about which a complaint was generated. L3server reserves the right to deactivate or terminate any account(s) upon any indication of such activity without notice. There will be a $140 clean up fee if an account was suspended for policy violation.
  5. False Information: False Information. Client agrees not to post false or inaccurate information to news groups in violation of the news groups' rules and regulations. If any news groups or service providers contact L3server concerning unethical, false or unlawful activities by you, L3server reserves the right to terminate your service without notice.
  6. Licensed Software Only: Client agrees to use only properly licensed third party software in connection with Client's use of the Services.
  7. Back-Up Files: L3server will make every reasonable effort to protect and backup data for Client on a regular basis if backups are part of a specific package, however L3server does not guarantee the existence, accuracy, or regularity of its backup services and, therefore, client is solely responsible for independent backup of data stored on Providers server and network. There is a one time fee of $100 for our Administrator to retreive client's individual back-up files.
  8. 99.99% Network Uptime: L3server has a 99.99% average uptime across our entire network at large, which includes webservers, mailservers, and more - as a whole. If a single server is temporarily offline, the rest of the L3server servers remain unaffected and uninterrupted, thus contributing to our overall uptime.
  9. Domain Name Registration: L3server uses eNom and Register.com for domain name registrations. There is a fee for new domain name registrations. (Domains do not need to be transferred to our registrars for the sites to be hosted with L3server.)

Right to Refuse Service
At its sole discretion, L3server has the right to refuse any and all service or services to any applicant, customer, client whether it be an individual or legal entity.

Payment Obligations, Renewals, and Cancellations

  1. Payment Obligations: Full payment is required in advance, before services are established. You will immediately pay, upon receiving an electronic invoice from BASIC Networks Corp., all charges for your use of the Services at the then current L3server prices for that category of service or any special offer applicable to your account as determined by L3server. You grant BASIC Networks Corp. the right to debit the credit card or bank account via our online credit card billing, PayPal, or Direct Debit from your bank account, depending on the form or payment and currency you choose to pay in. You will be billed until the service is cancelled by you in writing (e-mail with username and password verification or FAX) or is cancelled by L3server according to terms of this Agreement. You warrant and represent that the information you supply in the Order Form (or other information that L3server may require) is accurate and truthful. All payment-due notices will be send by electronic mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or FAX. Credit cards that are declined for any reason or Paypal payments that are either rejected or not made when Services are invoiced are subject to an additional processing fee. Service can be immediately interrupted on any account that is unpaid. L3server's usual grace period is 5 days. Service interrupted for non-payment is subject to a $25 suspension charge. Any suspended account will be terminated within 15 days after payment due date if no payment is received within this time. Accounts that are not collectable by BASIC Networks Corp. may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If you account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the company an additional "Collection" fee of not less than $50 nor more than $150.
    Your VPS account or dedicated server comes with a set bandwidth allotment (usually 300 GB to 500 GB for VPS accounts and 1000 or 1500 GB for dedicated servers). This represents the amount of bandwidth that you are allowed to use for each calendar month. If you exceed this allotment for any reason in any calendar month, even if you have cancelled service with L3server during the month, you will be charged overage bandwidth at a rate of $28 per 50 gigabytes. Bandwidth billing is done in arrears, and you will receive your bill for overage bandwidth during the first week of the following month that the overage occurred. It is your responsibility to monitor your bandwidth usage and to pay for all overages.
    *All payments to BASIC Networks Corp. are nonrefundable* and include any applicable setup fees and subsequent charges regardless of usage. All overcharges or billing disputes must be reported within 60 days of the time that the dispute occurred. If you dispute a charge to your credit card issuer that, in BASIC Networks' sole discretion, is a valid charge under the provisions of this Agreement and/or AUP, you agree to pay Layered Technologies an additional "Investigation Fee" of $50.00.
  2. Renewals: Your account will be automatically renewed under the same time and fee structure unless you give written notice to L3server ten (10) days before the renewal date that you do not wish to renew such account.
  3. Cancellation: You may cancel at anytime but need to be received at least 10 days before the anniversary billing date. There is no Money Back Guarantee for VPS or dedicated server services. All cancellations must be received in writing as per the deadlines indicated by e-mail or FAX. Cancellations will be processed by our staff on a daily basis.
