This policy applies to all users of Mega products and Tools. Any individual who uses Mega products or Tools must agree to these responsibilities prior to use being granted.

These Acceptable Use Policy and associate policies may change over time and the most recent version supersedes all others.

Abuse and Spam

The transmission of unsolicited or prohibited advertising or other content through electronic mail or inappropriate Usenet postings is forbidden. Mega has Zero Tolerance spam policy, the use of Mega product package for unsolicited mass mailings or postings (commonly known as "Spam") by any customer will cause that customer's product package and Business Account to be terminated immediately and without warning.

The use of any other facility to make such a mailing or posting, with any reference to Mega product package, which includes but is not limited to, bulk mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements, charity requests, petitions for signatures, political or religious tracts (including but not limited to mailboxes, auto responders, and Web pages), shall also be grounds for account termination and/or other actions as described above.

Political and Unlawful Content.

Site owner is solely responsible for any information contained on published web site. However, if complaints are received regarding language, content or graphics contained on website, Mega will terminate customer's web product package and Business Account without warning.

You may not use your web site to publish material which Mega determines, at its sole discretion, to be unlawful, indecent or objectionable. For purposes of this policy,"material"; refers to all forms of communications including narrative descriptions, graphics (including photographs, illustrations, images, drawings, logos), executable programs, video recordings, and audio recordings.

Unlawful content is that which violates any law, statute, treaty, regulation, or lawful order. This includes, but is not limited to: obscene material; defamatory, fraudulent or deceptive statements; threatening, intimidating or harassing statements, or material which violates the privacy rights or property rights of others (copyrights or trademarks, for example).

Examples of prohibited web site content:

Material which encourages the commission of a crime; or which tends to incite violence; or which tends to degrade any person or group based on sex, nationality, religion, color, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or political affiliation.

Adult Content

Adult-oriented sites, designed for entertainment or commercial purposes, are generally not allowed on Mega product package servers. Forbidden sites include those that provide access to pornographic materials (images or multimedia), whether for free or for payment, regardless of whether adult verification is used or not.

Mega reserves the right to make exceptions for certain customers on certain high end accounts, and particularly for e-Classifieds customers.

Exceptions are also made for educational sites, sites providing only links to other sites, and text materials of an adult nature, although we reserve the right to make further restrictions at our own discretion.

More Information

Web sites with adult content generate unusual usage patterns compared to most other types of web sites. These usage patterns are far more resource intensive and can be detrimental to other accounts sharing the same server. Therefore, we limit adult sites to those customers who are on higher level accounts in order to limit the number of such sites on any one server and compensate us for the reduced number of accounts that we can place on that server.

Interactive Chat

Interactive Web applications, of the specific type commonly known as "chat", are not allowed on Mega product package servers. For the purposes of this policy, a "chat" system is defined as a Web site or portion thereof that encourages visitors to post messages that are immediately viewable by other users, in order to engage in "real-time" conversation with other visitors at the same site.

More Information

The Web is unsuited to this type of application, and the impact on servers can be immense. If there are N visitors participating, then the amount of work being done by the server is on the order of N squared. It is impossible for such an application to scale properly. Couple this with the fact that most such systems use CGI or another dynamic content method to deliver the messages, and the server slows down dramatically, regardless of how powerful it might be. "Chat" should only be accomplished through systems specifically designed for it. Mega product package does not support any systems of that nature.

Misuse of Account Features

Operating any service that makes an account feature or files available to third parties for any use other than normal access to that account's Website is forbidden. Operating any service that enables or assists anonymous or abusive behavior by third parties is forbidden. Operating any service that affects the stability or reliability of any Mega product package server or network component, impacts other users or the company negatively, or degrades quality of service is forbidden. This includes but is not limited to third party access to scripting services, database hosting, counters, banner exchanges, auto responders, mailboxes, mail forwarding, mail filtering, content publishing systems, and the offering of free home pages to outside parties. This policy also prohibits video or audio streaming, file storage, storage of non-local backups, file sharing, image repositories, software repositories, or any other storage of files that are not directly related to and included in the web site(s) hosted by that account, as well as any usage of these resources that is inappropriate or excessive for a shared web hosting environment, as determined solely by Mega product package, even when it is directly related to the web site(s) hosted by that account. All account features are to be used solely in order to develop and implement the Web site(s) associated with that account.

In order to manage data usage more efficiently, Mega Holding periodically removes customer e-mail accounts which have expired for more than three(3) months. In addition, Mega Holding will delete customer e-mail accounts (1) where users have not used (logged on/accessed them) for more than six (6) months, or (2) which have more than 90% unread emails for more than six (6) months.

Once the customer e-mail account has been deleted, all account information will be permanently deleted from all Mega Holding databases and shall no longer be recoverable.

Resource Usage

Mega product package is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business websites. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server.

Website(s) that use intensive high system resource such as CPU time, memory usage, and network resources are advised to fine tune their services or disable any services to reduce the resource used to an acceptable level. Mega shall be the sole and final arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level.

Users may not, through a croon job, CGI script, PHP script, interactive commands, remote program, or any other means take the following actions on Mega product package servers:

  1. Run any process that requires quarter of system memory space.
  2. Run any CGI, PHP, or other type of script that forks or calls itself recursively and launches multiple processes per second.
  3. Run any process or program either locally or remotely that initiates POP3 logins at the rate of more than one per second.
  4. Run any process that uses quarter or more of system resources for longer than 30 seconds.
  5. Run any program that "fork bombs" or otherwise uses child processes in a manner that disrupts performance of the server, or in order to attempt to circumvent resource restrictions.
  6. Send out mail to more than 100 addresses in one batch, whether sequentially or in parallel. Such batches must "sleep" for at least three seconds between each delivery attempt.
  7. Send prohibitively large messages to any receiving system that cannot or does not wish to receive them. Large file transfers should be accomplished through FTP, not electronic mail.
  8. Run their own mailing list software, whether customized or packaged.
  9. Run any interactive chat application.
  10. Run or host any unattended server-side processes, torrent application, tracker, file-sharing, peer-to-peer activities, IRC chat module, video streaming, gaming applications, web spider or indexer, daemons and heavy croon-jobs.

Resource limits may be enforced by automatic monitoring systems.

More Information

System resource limits are intended to prevent runaway scripts. Also, processes with large memory footprints or hungry CPU requirements will incur swapping and other system slowdowns that reduce server performance.

If we find that you are performing bulk mail delivery, regardless of whether it is Spam or not, we may choose to deactivate your account and investigate. Please send such mailings through your local ISP's mail server , or any other mail server that you are authorized to use. Such mail servers are configured specifically to handle an extremely high volume of outbound mail.

Mega does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, high definition multimedia content, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use of the product package will result in the termination of purchaser’s account, with or without notice.

For its own operational efficiencies and purposes, Mega from time to time backs up data on its servers, but it is under no obligation or duty to the purchaser to do so under these Terms. IT IS SOLELY PURCHASER’S DUTY AND RESPONSIBILITY TO BACKUP PURCHASER’S FILES AND DATA ON Mega SERVERS, AND under no circumstance will Mega be liable to anyone FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND under any legal theory for loss of PURCHASER FILES And/or data on any server.

Database Resource Usage

MySQL databases are provided at no additional cost to owners for template Do-It-Myself. Mega reserves the right to require changes to database designs or usage methods in any case where such designs or methods are found to have an adverse impact on a database server and/or other databases on that server. Mega reserves the right to disable any database determined to be unacceptably harming performance of a database server.

More Information

This policy exists in order to protect the integrity and performance of the database servers for all users.

Security and Copyright

User is responsible for any misuse of account, even if the inappropriate activity was committed by a friend, family member, guest, visitor or an employee. User is strictly prohibited from using his/her account to breach the security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.

If any of the above activities is detected, all accounts of the user will be terminated instantly and permanently, and the user is responsible for all losses that may be caused.

Testing, Probing, and Monitoring

Use of Mega products to "test" the capacity of either the servers or the network, whether in terms of disk space, bandwidth, CPU capabilities, or other resources, is strictly prohibited. Use of Mega products for "probing" the capabilities, defenses, or other aspects of our servers, our network, or other Mega product package resources is strictly prohibited. Similarly, the use of Mega products for "probing" the capabilities, defenses, or other aspects of any outside servers or networks is strictly prohibited. Any monitoring services that are initiated by the Customer or at the behest of the Customer by an outside third party must be reasonable in their usage of CPU resources, network resources, and other Mega product package resources and may not use these excessively or otherwise interfere with the operation of Mega product package’s network and servers to the detriment of other customers.

Actions Taken by Mega Hosting

When Mega becomes aware of an alleged violation of its Acceptable Use Policy, Mega will initiate an investigation. During the investigation, Mega may restrict Customer's access in order to prevent further possible unauthorized activity. Depending on the severity of the violation, Mega may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate Customer's product package facility. If such violation is a criminal offense, Mega will notify the appropriate law enforcement department(s) of such violation.
