In addition to the above, current UK law makes this illegal and you could be subject to prosecution. In the event of prosecution, Exahost will co-operate with relevant UK law enforement agencies and provide all relevant copies of emails and logs allowed under UK Data Protection legislation.

SERVICE USE

Hosting related services are defined as allowing a seperate, third party to host content on the owner's web site. Exceptions to this include ad banners, classified ads and personal ads.

HIGH RESOURCE USER POLICY

Resources are defined as bandwidth, disk space, memory and/or processor utilization. Innapropriate usage is defined as any usage of a server that causes disruption to the serving or stability of other Exahost customer websites situated on said server.

When a website found to be monopolising resources or using them inappropriately (whether the customer is aware of the situation or not), the website will be stopped from responding to web requests and that customer will have their server access privileges disabled. The customer will then be informed of the situation via his/her registered e-mail. If no arrangement can be reached, Exahost reserves the right to terminate the account and delete the offending website.

EXCESS DATA TRANSFER AND WEB SPACE USAGE

All accounts are issued with associated Data Transfer and Web Space quotas. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that they remain within the quotas on their account.

Should Data Transfer or Web Space quotas be exceeded, our system generates automatic email notifications to the customer and Exahost.

Customers have the opportunity to increase quota on accounts by advance purchasing from the Exahost web site. In the event that advance purchase of additional Data Transfer or Web Space has not taken place, customers will be charged, on the 25th day of each month, for the Excess usage in the preceeding 30 days.

The ad-hoc rates for Excess Data Transfer and Web Space use are available here.

PAYMENT POLICIES

All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. Although Exahost reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time, all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment.

Payment is due each anniversary year or month following the date the account was established. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless closure notification has already been given. If the account is paid annually the renewal payments are requested 1 month in advance of the pre-pay expiration.

Exahost reserves the right to suspend services until any outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer sends a written cancellation request.
