Network interference by any Customers that may cause or is currently causing network interference with another Customer will be disconnected immediately. No service credits will be issued to Customers disconnected for network violations.

Email Policy

Mass Mailings. Safe and Sound Host has a zero stance policy on SPAM, Junk E-mail or UCE. Spam, Junk-mail and UCE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail messages, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. UCE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of Safe and Sound Host whether or not the message actually originated from our network.
Mailing Lists: Safe and Sound Host's mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list servs, or mailing services you may contract with. The policy is stated as follows: An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a targeted audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you. The list must also allow for automatic removal by all end Customers with non-distribution in the future.
If your actions have caused Safe and Sound Host mail servers or Safe and Sound Host IP address ranges to be placed on blackhole lists and other mail filtering software systems used by companies on the internet, you will be assessed a $100 charge to your account and $25 per hour for administrative charges incurred to remove and protect mail servers and IP ranges.
Violation of the above terms will result in one or all of the following:

  • A warning from via email or phone.
  • Removal of DNS for the advertised / originating site.
  • Immediate disconnection of service with no re-activation.
  • $100 fee assessed to your account for violation.

Copyright Infringement

Safe and Sound Host hosting accounts may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of Ukrainian law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or other intellectual property rights. Creating, utilizing, or distributing unauthorized copies of software are a violation of Ukrainian Copyright Law. If you copy, distribute or install the software in ways that the license does not allow, you are violating Ukrainian Copyright Law. Safe and Sound Host will cooperate with all law enforcement agencies in relation to alleged copyright infringement hosted on our servers. For more information on Ukrainian Copyright Law please read HERE.

Server Resources

Should your account utilize an excessive amount of server resources (including, but not limited to, CPU processing time, memory usage and network resources) for a sustained period of time, Safe and Sound Host reserves the right to request that you either upgrade your web hosting service package or reduce your account's use of resources to an acceptable level. Safe and Sound Host will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be an excessive amount of server resources. Safe and Sound Host reserves the right to suspend or shut down any web hosting account deemed to adversely affect server performance or network integrity. In addition, Customers may not run network-accessible servers or other daemons from shared hosting accounts. Customer accounts and data on the shared hosting service should only be made accessible from the services provided by Safe and Sound Host.

Suspension and Cancellation

Safe and Sound Host reserves the right to suspend service to any Customer for violation of the Terms of Service. Safe and Sound Host will use reasonable care in notifying the Customer and in resolving the problem in a method resulting in the least amount of service interference as reasonably possible. Safe and Sound Host reserves the right to terminate service without notice for continued and repeated violations of the ToS. Continued violations of the TOS resulting in cancellation of services will also result in a fee in the amount of $100 and contract acceleration for all amounts outstanding under the contract term.

Service Level Agreement

Safe and Sound Host endeavors to have network connectivity available for HTTP access by third parties 99% of each month ("Web Site Availability"). In the event that there is no Web Site Availability, Safe and Sound Host will credit the monthly service charge for the Service at the rate of 5% for every 30 minutes past 99% availability in a given month. Credits shall not be provided in the event that there is no Web Site Availability resulting from (i) scheduled maintenance, (ii) Customer behavior or the performance or failure of Customer applications, or (iii) circumstances beyond Safe and Sound Host's reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services (including DNS propagation). Safe and Sound Host is not responsible for any additional loss and/or damage as a result of no Web Site Availability. While Safe and Sound Host attempts to keep regular backups of data stored on our systems, Safe and Sound Host does not guarantee the existence, accuracy, or regularity of its backup services and, therefore, the client is responsible for making backups of data. Safe and Sound Host does not guarantee that its backup procedures will prevent the loss of, alteration of, or improper access to our clients' information.

Indemnification

Customer agrees that it shall defend, indemnify, save and hold Safe and Sound Host harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable attorneys' fees, ("Liabilities") asserted against Safe and Sound Host, its agents, its customers, servants officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold by Customer, its agents, employees or assigns. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Safe and Sound Host against Liabilities arising out of any injury to person or property caused by any products sold or otherwise distributed in connection with Safe and Sound Host's service, any material supplied by Customer infringing or allegedly infringing on the proprietary rights of a third party, copyright infringement, or any defective product which Customer sold on Safe and Sound Host's service.

Governing Law

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Ukrainian Law, without regard to choice of law provisions that would cause the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
