Adelais Accetpable Use Policy


This Acceptable Use Policy is part of the Terms of Service, but is separated for your convenience. Any violations of this Policy are taken as violations of the Terms of Service and will be treated as such.

This Acceptable Use Policy is an outline of the acceptable and unacceptable uses of Adelais Networks's services. The purpose of this Policy is to maintain Adelais Networks's hard-earned reputation as a quality hosting provider, and to help keep you from legal issues that you might not be aware of.

Even though it is the goal of this Policy to help prevent legal issues, it can not be taken in any way as a guarantee that you will not encounter legal issues. As outlined later in this Acceptable Use Policy, you assume full responsibility for your actions, and will not hold Adelais Networks accountable for your actions.

If any of these actions are taken, you will be notified by e-mail at the time they take place.

Breaches of the Law

Adelais Networks prides itself on being a law-abiding entity and enforces all relevant laws upon its customers. Laws are too numerous to list here, but ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking the law. If a breach of the law comes to the attention of Adelais Networks, it reserves the right to take any action necessary, including suspension or termination of an account without refund.

Specific laws that may be useful for a customer to review are the Electronic Communication Privacy Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and the Economic Espionage Act.
