Acceptable Use Policy
As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, CloudStonz offers its customer (also known as “Subscribers”) and their customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. CloudStonz respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, CloudStonz reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, CloudStonz has developed an Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer’s respective service agreement, and is intended as a guide to the customer’s rights and obligations when using CloudStonz’s services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.
One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgement and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that CloudStonz cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgement in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because CloudStonz cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, CloudStonz cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.
When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that CloudStonz does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over CloudStonz’ network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of CloudStonz, subscribers’ postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect CloudStonz’ goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate CloudStonz policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward CloudStonz, but also because it can overload CloudStonz’s network and disrupt service to CloudStonz’s subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, CloudStonz will investigate and shutdown the account that is spamming. A $250 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Furthermore, CloudStonz reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should CloudStonz choose to pursue and prosecute.

17) OTHER ACTIVITIES:
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that CloudStonz determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.
As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. CloudStonz will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that the comply with CloudStonz’ policy or applicable law. However, when CloudStonz becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action deemed appropriate by CloudStonz.
CloudStonz is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching CloudStonz’ facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. CloudStonz does not require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. CloudStonz reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its subscribers. Also, CloudStonz may take action against the CloudStonz’ subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, CloudStonz anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with CloudStonz in any corrective or preventive action that CloudStonz deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of CloudStonz policy.
CloudStonz will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or receive by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. CloudStonz may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, CloudStonz may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. CloudStonz assumes not obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, CloudStonz may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect CloudStonz and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, CloudStonz will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
CloudStonz expects that its subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of online communications. A subscriber’s failure to comply with those laws will violate CloudStonz policy. Finally, CloudStonz wishes to emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify CloudStonz for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or CloudStonz policy resulting in loss to CloudStonz or the bringing of any claim against CloudStonz by any third party. This means that, if CloudStonz is sued because of a subscriber’s or customer of a subscriber’s activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against CloudStonz, plus costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.
We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including CloudStonz and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber’s violation of this AUP should be sent to support[at]CloudStonz.com.
