Spam / UCE Policy

Growth of the Internet has brought about more possibilities for abuse of this new communications medium. Global Renaissance 21 has developed the following policies regarding abuse of Internet services. These policies were established to protect you, our customer, from Internet harassment and intrusions of privacy.

"Netiquette" is generally defined as the standards or practices an individual or organization engages in to insure responsible Internet citizenship on their behalf, as well as refraining from standards or practices which would impose undue financial, time, or social constraints on other users of the Internet. Every facet of the Internet is overseen by individual organizations (such as Global Renaissance 21) whose networks are interconnected to form the Internet. Every user of the Internet is responsible for their own behavior.

The Internet is simply an interconnected set of similar networks, each entity using the Internet assumes some liability for the cost associated with traffic and storage. When the costs of storage space and transmission are all figured together, a single posting can cost the collective Internet thousands of dollars! There are similar costs associated with the bandwidth required to transmit e-mail. A customer using e-mail or news postings for abusive purposes can create a large financial impact on the individual networks involved.

Individuals have fallen victim to some sort of Internet abuse have other costs including decreased effectiveness of the Internet. Someone besieged by SPAM e-mail (a massive bulk e-mail message to subscribers who did not indicate any desire to receive such e-mail) spends additional time downloading and responding to e-mail which was not requested in the first place.

When a Global Renaissance 21 customer performs one of these abusive activities, Global Renaissance 21 pays the price as well. The additional time Global Renaissance 21 employees spend responding to complaints could be better spent providing other services. In particularly some incidents, angry Internet users have been known to "mail bomb" an ISP by setting up programs to send so much e-mail that the ISPís mail server crashes thereby denying e-mail access to every customer of the ISP. Our system is robust enough to escape most of these types of activities. Global Renaissance 21 cannot escape every undesirable activity.

Due to the potential consequences of this type of activity, Global Renaissance 21 disapproves of this type of behavior by its customers. Any Global Renaissance 21 customer who abuses the resources of the Internet in any of the following ways will lose their access to the Global Renaissance 21 network permanently. This includes:

1. Excessive posting of e-mail to Internet users who previously have not indicated a desire to receive such e-mail;

2. Using the Global Renaissance 21 network for any illegal purpose.
If the subject of Internet abuse is still unclear, please see one of the following URLs:

Any subscriber who violates the SPAM policies of Global Renaissance 21 will be charged $125.00 per hour (one hour minimum charge) for the time it takes to "clean up" the SPAM. This shall include but not be limited to the time required to answer mail from recipients of your SPAM and/or repair any damage to the server due to the mail program locking up, "mail bombing" or other actions of the recipients in response to the SPAM.

Global Renaissance 21 will turn provide the name and personal information of any person found to be in violation of any laws to the appropriate state and/or federal officials for further legal action.

CGI Scripts Policy

Our servers are not to be used as your testing platforms. Customer accounts are on high end, live server responsible for maintaining many accounts. Your server space is being provided to display your finished product to the web - NOT for application or script testing. If you are uploading a script to our server, you acknowledge that you have already tested your script elsewhere and that you know how to install the script. Any script that the server administrator deems to be potentially threatening to the overall performance of our web server will be terminated immediately and your account access could be subject to suspension or terminated without refund of any pre-paid fees. Termination includes the purging of all customer files.

Any time spent by Global Renaissance 21 to kill a script and/or to lock an account will be billed to the account at a rate of $65.00 per hour (one hour minimum charge). Malicious scripts are subject to immediate Account cancellation.

Please note the following cgi script usage policies:

The script must use low system resources. Scripts that consume a large amount of server memory or CPU power will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server and/or additional fee.

Each user account may not use more than 1% of system resources at any given time. Scripts may not interact with any server configuration or hardware. Users running scripts that interact with any server configuration or any hardware will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server, and/or additional fee.

The script can be used and referenced from any site on the Net (i.e. free counters, etc.); however, scripts must stay within the allowable usage of our system resources. Users using more resources than a single user account is entitled to use will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server, and/or additional fee.

The script must be executed in a timely fashion. Any script that uses the processor for more than a few milliseconds is subject to removal by system administrator.

Scripts must be secure. Unnecessarily setting permissions (chmod) of scripts to 777 is a policy violation. Placing scripts in a publicly viewable directory (one without an index.html files) is a policy violation and is subject to removal by system administrator.

Any accounts with scripts found in violation of any Global Renaissance 21, policy are subject to future scrutiny of all cgi by our system administrator. If a script is found to be harmful to the system, it will be killed immediately and the account locked until the account owners have been contacted. Any time spent by Global Renaissance 21 to kill a script and/or to lock an account will be billed to the account at a rate of $65.00 per hour (one hour minimum).

Malicious scripts are subject to immediate account cancellation.

Bandwidth Usage Policy

The official Global Renaissance 21 policy is to provide enough monthly bandwidth so that any site using normal resources will be able to perform without a problem. If a site uses over it's allotment of bandwidth for its type of account, the customerís type of account will automatically be upgraded and the customer charged the upgraded account type charges.

The customer will be e-mailed a notice once an upgraded account type is assessed to the customer. Warnings will not be sent to notify customer that the limit has been reached or exceeded. This term and condition is non-negotiable.
