Those customers who also wish to have administrative level access (root access) to their Dedicated Server may do so at no additional cost by submitting a support ticket at any time. All customers who do request administrative level access (root access) to their Dedicated Server will become wholly responsible for the ongoing stability of the server. Vazio will not be responsible for any service related issues related to the stability of the server in these cases.

Vazio will not attempt to resolve or troubleshoot any core package issues or file system corruption issues that may arise if the customer has administrative level access (root access) to their Dedicated Server. In the event that the server Operating System becomes unstable or damaged beyond reasonable repair Vazio’s liability will be strictly limited to reloading the server with a fresh installation of the Operating System and base packages during normal business hours.

Billing and Payment

User will pay to Vazio the service fees for the Services in the manner set forth in the Registration Form. Vazio may increase the Service Fees (i) in the manner permitted in the service description and (ii) at any time on or after expiration of the Initial Term.

Some accounts may be placed on hold for up to 72 hours, pending review of information received. Any losses or expenses experienced by the User, due to actions taken by Vazio in response to Users non-payment, are the complete responsibility of the User.

Payment Processing

Vazio's preferred method of payment is credit card. By purchasing our hosting services, you are agreeing to allow Vazio to place your account on a recurring payment plan. The account will automatically be re-billed according to the terms of the plan you select.

When an account is cancelled, all copies of the Web site and e-mail files may be permanently and irretrievably removed from our servers. If an account has been suspended for non-payment, it will only be reactivated upon payment of all overdue fees. If we make any refunds due to charges you dispute with your credit card Vazio we will cancel your account. The cancelled account will only be reactivated once all disputed/refunded fees are resolved satisfactorily, and we receive payment for any and all administrative fees incurred by Vazio as a result of your dispute or charge-back request. We cannot guarantee any files or e-mail will be available upon reactivation.

It is a violation of this Agreement for you to misuse or fraudulently use credit cards, charge cards, electronic funds transfers, and/or electronic checks. A determination of such misuse or fraudulent use shall be in our sole discretion.

ANTI-SPAM POLICY

The abuse and misuse of e-mail is a serious problem, and Vazio takes a zero tolerance stance against it. Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups. No organization or entity listed in the ROKSO may be hosted on our servers. Any account which results in our IP space being blacklisted will be immediately suspended and/or terminated.

Vazio’s customers who are suspected to be using Vazio products and services for the purpose of sending spam are fully investigated. Once Vazio determines there is a problem with spam, Vazio will take the appropriate action to resolve the situation. If you have been a victim of SPAM sent by one of our customers, please forward the e-mail, including its headers, to abuse@vazio.com.

What is Spam

Vazio defines spam as the use of webpages set up on ISPs that allow SPAM-ing (also known as "ghost sites") that directly or indirectly reference customers to domains or IP addresses hosted by Vazio or the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE), which advertises any IP address belonging to Vazio or any URL (domain) that is hosted by Vazio, to recipients as an advertisement or otherwise, without first obtaining prior confirmed consent to receive these communications from the sender. This can include, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. Email Messages
  2. Unsolicited postings to newsgroups
  3. Windows system messages
  4. Pop-up messages (aka "adware" or "spyware" messages)
  5. Instant messages (using AOL, MSN, Yahoo or other instant messenger programs)
  6. Online chat room advertisements
  7. Guestbook or Website Forum postings
  8. Solicitations
  9. Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the true origin of the message
  10. Advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available any software, program, product, or service that is designed to facilitate a means to SPAM
  11. The use of invalid or non-existent domain names
  12. The use of deceptive addressing
  13. Otherwise violate Vasio’s Authorized Use Policy and other Terms of Service.

What We Allow and Don't Allow

Unauthorized use of our network in connection with the transmission of unsolicited e-mail, including the transmission of e-mail in violation of this policy, may result in civil and criminal penalties against the sender and those assisting the sender, including those provided by the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. §1030, et seq.) and other state and federal laws. We will not allow our servers and services to be used for the purposes described herein. In order to use our products and services, you must abide by Vazio’s no spam policies, all applicable laws and regulations, which include the Can-Spam Act of 2003 and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Commercial advertising and/or bulk emails or faxes may only be sent to recipients who have already "opted-in" to receive messages from the sender specifically. They must include a legitimate return address and reply-to address, the sender's physical address, and an opt-out method in the footer of the email or fax. Upon request by Vazio, conclusive proof of opt-in may be required for an email address or fax number.

What We Do

If Vazio determines that services are being used in association with spam, Vazio reserves the right to terminate, without warning, any account. Usage of Vazio’s services constitutes acceptance and understanding of this policy. If the registrant or customer wishes to obtain reactivation, the registrant or customer will be required to respond by email to Vazio stating that they will cease to send spam and/or have spam sent on their behalf. Vazio will require a non-refundable reactivation fee to be paid before the site, email boxes and/or services are reactivated.

In the event that Vazio determines the abuse has not stopped after services have been restored the first time, Vazio will permanently terminate the hosting and email boxes associated with domain name in question.

Vazio reserves the right to decide what it considers "SPAM", Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE) and to determine from all of the evidence whether or not the e-mail recipients were from an "opt-in" e-mail list. Users may be asked to produce records that verify that explicit affirmative permission was obtained from a recipient before a mailing was sent.

Vazio reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee. This cost of the clean up fee is entirely at the discretion of Vazio.

To Report Spam Abuse

Vazio encourages all customers and recipients of email generated from our products and services to report suspected spam. Suspected abuse can be reported by email.

Basic Mailing List Rules of Play

Mailing lists are an excellent vehicle for distributing focused, targeted information to an interested, receptive audience. Consequently, mailing lists have been used successfully as a highly effective direct marketing tool. Unfortunately, some marketers misuse mailing lists through a lack of understanding of Internet customs and rules of the forum pertaining to e-mail. Others fail to take adequate precautions to prevent the lists they manage from being used in an abusive manner.

The e-mail addresses of new subscribers must be confirmed or verified before mailings commence. This is usually accomplished by means of an e-mail message sent to the subscriber to which s/he must reply, or containing a URL which s/he must visit, in order to complete the subscription. However it is implemented, a fundamental requirement of all lists is the verification of all new subscriptions.

Mailing list administrators must provide a simple method for subscribers to terminate their subscriptions, and administrators should provide clear and effective instructions for unsubscribing from a mailing list. Mailings from a list must cease promptly once a subscription is terminated.

Mailing list administrators should make an "out of band" procedure (e.g., a means of contact by which messages may be sent for further correspondence via e-mail or telephone) available for those who wish to terminate their mailing list subscriptions but are unable or unwilling to follow standard automated procedures.

Mailing list administrators must ensure that the impact of their mailings on the networks and hosts of others is minimized by proper list management procedures such as pruning of invalid or undeliverable addresses, or taking steps to ensure that mailings do not overwhelm less robust hosts or networks.

Mailing list administrators must take adequate steps to ensure that their lists are not used for abusive purposes. For example, administrators can maintain a "suppression list" of e-mail addresses from which all subscription requests are rejected. Addresses would be added to the suppression list upon request by the parties entitled to use the addresses at issue. The purpose of the suppression list would be to prevent subscription of addresses appearing on the suppression list by unauthorized third parties. Such suppression lists should also give properly authorized domain administrators the option to suppress all mailings to the domains for which they are responsible.

Mailing list administrators must make adequate disclosures about how subscriber addresses will be used, including whether or not addresses are subject to sale or trade with other parties. Once a mailing list is traded or sold, it may no longer be an opt-in mailing list. Therefore, those who are acquiring "opt-in" lists from others must examine the terms and conditions under which the addresses were originally compiled and determine that all recipients have in fact opted-in specifically to the mailing lists to which they are being traded or sold.

Mailing list administrators should make adequate disclosures about the nature of their mailing lists, including the subject matter of the lists and anticipated frequency of messages. A substantive change in either the subject matter or frequency of messages may constitute a new and separate mailing list requiring a separate subscription. List administrators should create a new mailing list when there is a substantive change in either the subject matter or frequency of messages. A notification about the new mailing list may be appropriate on the existing mailing list, but existing subscribers should never be subscribed automatically to the new list. For example, if Company A acquires Company B, and Company B has compiled opt-in mailing lists; Company A should not summarily incorporate Company B's mailing lists into its own.
