Introduction

When you open your Wicked Servers account, you join two communities. First is the community formed by our network and our customers; the second community is the one made up of all networks and users connected to each other to form the Internet. Becoming a member of these communities gives you certain rights and privileges, but also imposes certain duties and responsibilities. Wicked Servers has established an Acceptable Use Policy in order to make these duties and responsibilities more clear. This document is intended to provide a general understanding of Wicked Servers's Acceptable Use Policy. The following factors guide the establishment and enforcement of Wicked Servers's usage policies:

    Ensure reliable service to our customers
    Ensure security and privacy of our systems and network, as well as the networks and systems of others. Comply with existing laws.
    Maintain our reputation as a responsible service provider.
    Encourage responsible use of the Internet and discourage activities which reduce the usability and value of Internet services.
    Preserve the value of Internet resources as a conduit for free expression and exchange of information.
    Preserve the privacy and security of individual users.

Wicked Servers intends to provide its customers access to everything the Internet has to offer. While Wicked Servers is firmly committed to the principles of free speech, certain activities are damaging to the resources of both Wicked Servers and the Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources of Wicked Servers and the Internet are limited, and abuse of these resources by one user has a negative impact on the entire community. We do not routinely monitor the activity of accounts except for measurements of system utilization and the preparation of billing records. However, in our efforts to promote good citizenship within the Internet community, we will respond appropriately if we become aware of inappropriate use of our service. If a Wicked Servers account is used to violate the Acceptable Use Policy, we reserve the right to terminate your service without notice and you agree to indemnify Wicked Servers and its affiliates against any claims threatened or brought by third parties as a result of your violation of this Acceptable Use Policy and/or the content of your website. We prefer to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action. However, flagrant violations of the Acceptable Use Policy will result in immediate termination of service. Our failure to enforce this policy, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of our right to do so at any time. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact us at abuse@tal0ne.co.uk
