1.4. In connection with the Services, OWH|AAA may provide for your use certain tools and software, including, but not limited to, certain specialty scripting software and/or certain programming language software for designing websites (collectively, the "Tools").

Violations of this Agreement could subject you to criminal or civil liability.


4.2. Use and Misuse of Materials. Materials in the public domain (e.g., images, text, and programs) may be downloaded or uploaded using the Services. You may also re-distribute materials in the public domain. You assume all risks regarding the determination of whether the material is in the public domain.

You are prohibited from storing, distributing or transmitting any unlawful material through the Services. Examples of unlawful material include, but are not limited to, threats of physical harm, child pornography, and copyrighted, trademarked and other proprietary material used without proper authorization. Pornography and sex-related merchandising, or links to such material, even if legal, are not acceptable uses of OWH|AAA's servers. You may not post, upload or otherwise distribute copyrighted material on OWH|AAA's servers without the consent of the copyright holder.

Unacceptable uses of website content also include the presence of the following programs or the activities associated with them, regardless of whether or not any actual intrusion results in the corruption or loss of data: server broadcast messages or any message sent on an intrusive basis to any directly or indirectly attached network; attempts to circumvent any user authentication or security of host, network, or account; accessing data not intended for user; probing the security of any network; spawning dozens of processes; port scans, ping floods, packet spoofing, and forging router information; denial of service attacks, sniffers, flooding, spoofing, ping bombing, smurfs, winnuke, land and teardrop; promulgation of viruses; and IRC bots, such as eggdrop or BitchX.

However, examples of unacceptable activities include posting private information about a person without his or her consent, defaming a person or business, and knowingly making available code that will have a deleterious effect on third-party computers. Where there are allegations that your on-line activity has violated the legal rights of a third party, OWH|AAA will not substitute itself for a court of law in deciding tort claims raised by the third party.

4.3. Email Use. Unacceptable affronts to netiquette and unacceptable activities include, but are not limited to, the following: spamming (sending unsolicited advertising to those with which you have no existing business relationship and posting off-topic advertising in newsgroups); spoofing (using a return email address that is not the valid reply address of the sender or sending an email message that does not contain enough information to enable the recipient to identify you); passive spamming (promoting a website hosted by OWH|AAA by spamming from some other source); trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses); mailbombing (inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond or sending large or multiple files to a user); generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (over 10% of available system resources); propagating chain letters; and subscribing someone else to an electronic mailing list without that person's permission. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to a recipient who has not requested the message. Making an email address available to the public does not constitute a request to receive messages. Distribution of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients on a mailing list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not be used to distribute unsolicited email. If you are repeatedly mailbombed or attract such behavior, the Services will be terminated.

You should not send email to any user who does not wish to receive it, either at OWH|AAA or elsewhere. OWH|AAA recognizes that email is an informal medium; however, you must refrain from sending further email to a user after receiving a request to stop.

OWH|AAA reserves the right to zip (compress) any customer email box that exceeds 50 megs in size. Customers with zipped boxes will be notified and instructed on how to access or download their zipped email files. If zipped boxes remain unaccessed for 30 days OWH|AAA reserves the right to delete the email box.

You may not alter the headers of email messages to disguise their identity or to prevent users from responding to the messages. OWH|AAA may disclose the usernames of accounts responsible for forged email messages to system administrators or users requesting the information.

Violations of the OWH|AAA policies outlined herein can sometimes result in massive numbers of email responses. If you receive so much email that OWH|AAA resources are affected, OWH|AAA staff may shut down your mailbox.

OWH|AAA reserves the right to subscribe to multiple RBLs (real-time blocking lists) and other server-wide spam and virus fighting measures we deem necessary to automatically block known open SMTP relays and known spamming relays. As per Section 2, OWH|AAA will not be liable for any costs or damages associated with any failure to receive legitimate email due to our spam fighting procedures. Clients do have the option to request relocation of their service to a non-RBL configured server by contacting OWH|AAA support.

Examples of these tools include, but are not limited to, password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools.

OWH|AAA will also fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected lawbreakers.

4.5. System Resources. System abuse includes any use of OWH|AAA resources that disrupts the normal use of its servers or services for others. Examples of system abuse include running excessive numbers of processes or consuming excessive amounts of CPU time, memory or disk space.

Any usage of 10% or more of OWH|AAA's system resources is an undue burden on OWH|AAA's system and is unacceptable. If your usage ever exceeds 10% of system resources, your account may be terminated immediately and without prior notice.

Further, running programs in the background on a OWH|AAA server without OWH|AAA's prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat, IRC bots, more then 1,000 emails a day and the like are not acceptable uses of OWH|AAA's servers.

Due to their use of flat files instead of databases, One World does not allow the use of UBB or YABB bulletin boards. Use of these boards for large or very active forums may result in system performance degradation, and cannot be allowed in our shared server environment. One World suggests using VBulletin or phpBB as more efficient, database-driven alternatives to these bulletin boards. Finally, you are responsible for keeping all applications and associated code up to date with current release versions. Failure to keep applications up to date may result in suspension, forced updates, and other measures as we deem necessary to secure the server. As example, Wordpress maintenance and security updates must be installed within 2 weeks of their release, otherwise updates will be done automatically. One World Hosting reserves the right, at our discretion, to update any site code which poses a security concern.

The failure of OWH|AAA to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by OWH|AAA of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole.

All provisions of sections 1 through 14 of this Agreement shall survive the termination or other expiration of this Agreement.
