You will be held responsible for all actions performed by your account whether done by you or by others! If server security is compromised, the account holder is responsible for all violations of Bright Hosting’s Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”) and this Acceptable Use Policy (this “AUP”), including SPAM, and all disconnect and reconnect fees associated with violations.
The following terms constitute an agreement between you and Bright Vessel LLC (“Bright Hosting”). This AUP governs your use of the services provided by Bright Hosting (the “Services”). BY USING THE SERVICES YOU SIGNIFY THAT YOU AGREE TO THIS AUP.
Statement of Purpose
The Primary Purpose of Bright Hosting is to provide our clients with the resources necessary to put their internet services online reliably in a lightning-fast, high availability environment that responds quickly to each client’s individual needs.
Regarding Ultimate Liability
The client is ultimately responsible for individual server security. Bright Hosting disclaims all liability for server content.
All clients are allowed access to the public and private network; however, misuse of the network in any way, including interference, will result in a violation of this AUP. All violations of this AUP shall be subject to review by Bright Hosting, and an appropriate course of action shall be taken as determined by Bright Hosting in its sole discretion. Proper use of public network must comply with all local, state, and federal laws. Clients assume full liability for all content which they place on the server. Content displaying or transferring acts of copulation or exposed genitalia is prohibited, regardless of context. Forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or newsgroup posting is deemed a violation of this AUP.
Any type of sabotage, regardless of intention, shall be grounds for termination of an account. This includes but is not limited to abuse of the remote reboot system by using it multiple times in a very short amount of time for improper reasons.
Clients are required and obligated to maintain all security on their servers. Any and all additional charges that are incurred due to client lack of monitoring or security are the responsibility of the client.
Bright Hosting does not actively monitor the content on its servers. Dedicated server content will only be reviewed upon complaint. Content that does not violate local, state and federal law or this AUP or the Terms of Service is deemed in compliance and shall remain intact. If content is deemed to be in violation of this AUP or the Terms of Service, it shall be reviewed by Bright Hosting, and a course of action shall be taken to correct the problem, which may result in termination of the account or service.
If any client or any third-party user that is a customer of our client uses Bright Hosting services, network, or its physical infrastructure in a manner that causes Bright Hosting, or any IP addresses issued by Bright Hosting to be “blacklisted” or “blocked”, Bright Hosting reserves the right to suspend or terminate services of such client and/or suspend or terminate the access to services, network, and/or its physical infrastructure. Operating Bright Hosting service on behalf of, or in connection with or reselling any service to persons or firms listed in the Spamhaus Register of Known Spam Operations database at www.spamhaus.org shall constitute a violation of this AUP.
All IPs addresses issued by Bright Hosting are the sole property of Bright Hosting. Clients retain no ownership rights to any IP addresses issued by Bright Hosting. Clients may not transfer IPs from Bright Hosting. Any client purchasing over 16 IP addressed in addition to their server may be required to submit ARIN justification forms as well as submit to additional terms depending on the number of IP addresses desired. For more information about IP Addresses, please contact us through our website.
IRC Usage shall be allowed unless such usage is abused or creates or enhances any type of problem(s) with Bright Hosting’s services or network. It is also deemed a violation of this AUP if it is determined that IRC is the cause or root of a service interruption to other users. Clients may not operate and maintain IRC servers which connect to global IRC networks such as Undernet, EFnet and DALnet. Use of IRC plug-ins, scripts, add-ons, clones or other software designed to disrupt or deny service to other users is prohibited. If a client’s IRC servers are frequently compromised or attract denial of service or distributed denial of service attacks that disrupt or deny service to other clients or users, then Bright Hosting may null-route, filter, suspend, or terminate that client’s service. Bright Hosting allows the use of both Peer to Peer as well as Bit Torrent, but we do not permit the transfer of illegal content.
Bright Hosting may be required by law to submit client information to law enforcement officials, when presented with a valid subpoena from a court with proper jurisdiction. In such event, the information requested is disclosed as directed pursuant to the subpoena. The safety and privacy of any client will only be compromised by the court order of a subpoena. Bright Hosting will notify the client of the information request as allowed by the subpoena.
Any Claim of Violation of this AUP that is being submitted by a third party must include the name and contact information of the complaining party, the IP address from which the alleged complaint originated, and a description of the violation. This AUP applies to all users of servers provided by Bright Hosting, including without limitation the customers, clients and other users of our clients.
Bright Hosting reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse new service to any individual, group, or business. Bright Hosting also retains the right to discontinue service for any client for any reason or no reason and at any time, including without limitation for violation of this AUP.
