Acceptable Use   //   print this page
    

Charlottezweb.com, LLC's Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") is provided to give our customers and users a clear understanding of what Charlottezweb expects of them while using the service. All users of Charlottezweb's Internet services, those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts, as well as those who pay a service fee to subscribe to the Services, must comply with this AUP and our TOS (Terms of Service).
 
Use of Charlottezweb Service constitutes acceptance and agreement to Charlottezweb's AUP as well as Charlottezweb's TOS (Terms of Service).

We support the uncensored flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do not actively monitor subscriber activity under normal circumstances. Similarly, we do not exercise editorial control over the content of any web site, e-mail transmission, newsgroups, or other material created or accessible over or through the services, except for certain proprietary Web sites. However, in accordance with our TOS (Terms of Service), we may remove any materials that, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject us to liability, or which may violate this AUP. Charlottezweb may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrongdoing. Your violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or immediate termination of either your Charlottezweb account or other actions as detailed in Section 3 WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE.

This document is intended to provide a basic understanding of Charlottezweb's Acceptable Use Policy. The following are guidelines for the establishment and enforcement of the AUP:

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 privacy and security of individual users
 
Charlottezweb intends to provide its customers access to everything the Internet has to offer. While we're firmly committed to the principles of free speech, certain activities may be damaging to the resources of both Charlottezweb servers and the Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources of Charlottezweb 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.

You may not use your hosting account (dedicated, shared or reseller) to publish material which Charlottezweb 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.

If a Charlottezweb account is used to violate the Acceptable Use Policy or our TOS, we reserve the right to
terminate your service without notice. 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.

As a member of our network community, you must use your Internet access responsibly. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact us at
support@charlottezweb.com.

Charlottezweb
Terms of Service   //   print this page

Charlottezweb.com, LLC ("The Company") agrees to furnish services to the Subscriber, subject to the following TOS (Terms of Service).

Use of Charlottezweb Service constitutes acceptance and agreement to Charlottezweb's AUP as well as Charlottezweb's TOS (Terms of Service).
 
All provisions of this contract are subject to the TOS (Terms of Service) of Charlottezweb and AUP (Acceptable Use Policy)
. The AUP may be changed from time to time at the discretion of the Company. Subscriber understands that change to the AUP by the Company shall not be grounds for early contract termination or non-payment.

Revision Date:  August 8, 2016
-Added details to the "Domain Name Policies" section per registry requirements. 
-Re-organized existing TOS into subcategories.
    
         
Payment Policies
   
Service Rates: Subscriber acknowledges that the nature of the service furnished and the initial rates and charges have been communicated to Subscriber. Subscriber is aware that the Company may prospectively change the specified rates and charges from time to time. Subscribers, once setup, are locked into their initial pricing which cannot be raised for that specific account throughout the non-broken duration of that specific account.  Any additional accounts ordered will be subject to current pricing at the time of order.

Payment: Establishment of this service is dependent upon receipt by the Company of payment of stated charges. Subsequent payments are due on the anniversary date of the month (or quarter or year, if applicable) for that month's service.

Payments and Fees: Service will be interrupted on accounts that reach 30 days (including non-business days and holidays) past due. Service interrupted for nonpayment may be subject to a $10 reconnect charge. Accounts that are not collectable by Charlottezweb may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the company a "Processing and Collection" Fee of not less than $15 nor more than $25. If you desire to cancel your account, please follow the proper procedure to do this as outlined in this TOS.
 
Refunds: Charlottezweb offers a 30-day money back guarantee on your first month of service fees.  If you are in any way unsatisfied with services DURING your first 30 days, you may cancel your account and have all monies refunded in full.  Account cancellations after the first 30 days will result in no refunds unless you have paid quarterly or yearly dues in advance.  In these cases, you will be refunded the pro-rated amounts starting with the first full month of unused services.  For example, should you cancel a yearly contract during the second month, you will be refunded the remaining 10 months (proportional to the amount per month based on the discounted yearly rate) in full.

Disputes:  All overcharges or billing disputes must be reported within 60 days of the time the dispute occurred. If you dispute a charge to your credit card issuer that, in Charlottezweb's sole discretion is a valid charge under the provisions of the TOS and /or AUP, you agree to pay Charlottezweb an "Administrative Fee" of not less than $25 and not more than $100.

Failure to Pay: The Company may temporarily deny service or terminate this Agreement upon the failure of Subscriber to pay charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve Subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges, plus reasonable interest and any collection fees.

Account Cancellation: Charlottezweb's preferred method of cancellation is via the Client Area of your Charlottezweb.com account. Once logged in, you can view your current accounts and request cancellation as needed.   Emailed cancellation requests are also acceptable.

Service Disruption:  Subscriber acknowledges that the service provided is of such a nature that service can be interrupted for many reasons other than the negligence of the company and that damages resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain. Therefore, subscriber agrees that the company shall not be liable for any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive control of the company. Subscriber further acknowledges that the company's liability for its own negligence may not in any event exceed an amount equivalent to charges payable by subscriber for services during the period damages occurred. In no event shall the company be liable for any special or consequential damages, loss or injury.

Contact Information: You must provide us with, and keep current, good contact information for you. E-mail, telephone and fax contacts are used, in that order of preference.
         
                  
Network Policies

IP Address Ownership: If Charlottezweb assigns Customer an Internet Protocol address for Customer's use, the right to use that Internet Protocol address shall belong only to Charlottezweb, and Customer shall have no right to use that Internet Protocol address except as permitted by Charlottezweb in its sole discretion in connection with the Services, during the term of this Agreement. Charlottezweb shall maintain and control ownership of all Internet Protocol numbers and addresses that may be assigned to Customer by Charlottezweb, and Charlottezweb reserves the right to change or remove any and all such Internet Protocol numbers and addresses, in its sole and absolute discretion. Our allocation of IP addresses is limited by ARIN's new policies. These new policies state that use of IP addresses for IP based virtual hosts will not be accepted as justification for new IP addresses. What this means to you is that you MUST use name-based hosting where possible. We will periodically review IP address usage, and if we find that clients are using IP addresses where name-based hosting could be used, we will revoke authorization to use those IP addresses that could be used with name-based hosting.
 
Bandwidth and Disk Usage: Customer agrees that bandwidth and disk usage shall not exceed the number of megabytes per month for the Services ordered by Customer on the Order Form (the "Agreed Usage"). Charlottezweb will monitor Customer's bandwidth and disk usage. Charlottezweb shall have the right to take corrective action if Customer's bandwidth or disk usage exceeds the Agreed Usage. Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, or termination of this Agreement, which actions may be taken is in Charlottezweb's sole and absolute discretion. If Charlottezweb takes any corrective action under this section, Customer shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior to such action.
 
System and Network Security: Users are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of the Charlottezweb Network. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability. Charlottezweb will investigate occurrences, which may involve such violations and may involve, and cooperate with, law enforcement authorities in prosecuting Users who are involved in such violations. These violations include, without limitation:
 
-Accessing data not intended for such User or logging into a server or account, which such User is not authorized to access.
-Attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization.
-Attempting to interfere with service to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, via means of overloading, "flooding", "mail bombing" or "crashing".
-Forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or newsgroup posting.
-Taking any action in order to obtain services to which such User is not entitled.  

Notification of Violation:
 
Charlottezweb is under no duty to look at each customer's or user's activities to determine if a violation of the AUP has occurred, nor do we assume any responsibility through our AUP to monitor or police Internet-related activities.

First violation: Any User, which Charlottezweb determines to have violated any element of this Acceptable Use Policy, shall receive an email, warning them of the violation. The service may be subject at Charlottezweb's discretion to a temporary suspension pending a User's agreement in writing, to refrain from any further violations.

Second Violation: Users that Charlottezweb determines to have committed a second violation of any element of this Acceptable Use Policy shall be subject to immediate suspension or termination of service without further notice.
 
Suspension of Service or Cancellation: Charlottezweb reserves the right to suspend network access to any customer if in the judgment of the Charlottezweb network administrators the customer's account is the source or target of the violation of any of the other terms of the AUP or for any other reason which Charlottezweb chooses. If inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of the Customer in question will be deactivated until an investigation is complete. Prior notification to the Customer is not assured. In extreme cases, law enforcement will be contacted regarding the activity. The customer will not be credited for the time the customer's machines were suspended.
    
                  
Domain Name Policies
 
New Domain Accounts: All new web hosting accounts involving new domains will be set up within 1 to 2 business days. Charlottezweb recognizes that upon paying the registration fee, the subscriber becomes the legal owner.  As long as there are no pending payments, Charlottezweb will transfer ownership or relinquish the domain as requested by the subscriber at any time.
 
Domain Renewal Notifications : To comply with registry requirements, Charlottezweb will email alerts to the email address on file (Your Client Area login username) of upcoming domain renewals and expirations at the following intervals:

In Advance:
1st notice - 60 days in advance of expiration
2nd notice - 45 days in advance of expiration
3rd notice - Invoice Generated - 30 days in advance of expiration
4th notice - 15 days in advance of expiration
5th notice - 7 days in advance of expiration
After Expiration:
6th notice - 3 days after expiration (final notice)

Domain Renewal Notifications : Domain renewals are equal to the original registration fee as long as they are completed on time or within the suspension period. If a domain expires due to lack of payment and exceeds approximately 29 days, the domain will enter a period of "Redemption" prior to being released back to the public. During Redemption, the cost the registry charges to renew a domain is $250 USD. This is a registry fee and is not set by Charlottezweb.  Please note that not all TLDs guarantee the same grace period prior to Redemption so it is highly recommended to renew in advance or immediately after expiration if you wish to retain ownership.

Domain Expiration : When a domain expires, it becomes inactive immediately, a parking page is displayed, and all the services attached to it, such as a website and/or email cease to function. It is not possible to make any updates to the domain while it is expired.
    
         
SPAM Policies

SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE): Charlottezweb takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means that customers of Charlottezweb may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of Charlottezweb may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other networks. In addition, it is not acceptable to transmit bulk email through remote SOCKS, HTTP or other similar proxies who in turn make a SMTP (TCP port 25) connection to the destination mail servers. This technique may result in account suspension or termination. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service. In order to prevent unnecessary blacklisting due to spam we reserve the right to occasionally sample bulk email being sent from servers.
 
Violation of Charlottezweb's SPAM policy will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our SPAM policy, Charlottezweb will initiate an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification). During the investigation, Charlottezweb may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, Charlottezweb may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer's account. Further, Charlottezweb reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. Charlottezweb will notify law enforcement officials if the violation is believed to be a criminal offense.
 
First violations of this policy will result in an "Administrative Fee" of $250 and your account will be reviewed for possible immediate termination. A second violation will result in an "Administrative Fee" of $500 and immediate termination of your account. Users who violate this policy agree that in addition to these "Administrative" penalties, they will pay "Research Fees" not to exceed $175 per hour that Charlottezweb personnel must spend to investigate the matter. PLEASE, DO NOT SPAM from your account.
 
As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over the Charlottezweb network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients, if applicable.
 
Anyone hosting websites or services on their account that support spammers or cause any of our IP space to be listed in any of the various Spam Databases will have their account immediately removed from our network. Charlottezweb reserves the right to immediately delete that account without providing any backups or refunds regardless of what type of payment plan was used.  This supersedes the Refund clause discussed in option 5. above. 
    
         
General Policies

Disclosure to Law Enforcement: The AUP specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities. Therefore, Subscriber agrees that the Company may disclose any and all subscriber information including assigned IP numbers, account history, account use, etc. to any law enforcement agent who makes a written request without further consent or notification to the Subscriber. In addition Charlottezweb shall have the right to terminate all service set forth in this Agreement.

Charlottezweb does not provide technical support for YOUR customers unless arranged otherwise. If you can email, we encourage you to email support@charlottezweb.com for assistance. You can also login to your Client Area and submit a trouble ticket to our support team. 
 
Charlottezweb reserves the right to amend its policies at any time. All Sub-Networks, resellers and managed servers of Charlottezweb must adhere to the above policies. Failure to follow any term or condition will be grounds for immediate Cancellation. You will be held responsible for the actions of your clients in the matter described on these Terms and conditions. Therefore, it is in your best interest to implement a similar or stricter Terms and conditions or otherwise called Acceptable Terms of use policy.
 
Indemnification: Charlottezweb wishes to emphasize that in agreeing to the Charlottezweb Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and Terms of Service (ToS), customer indemnifies Charlottezweb for any violation of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and Terms of Service (ToS) that results in loss to Charlottezweb or the bringing of any claim against Charlottezweb by any third-party. This means that if Charlottezweb is sued because of a customer's or a customer of a customer's activity, the customer will pay any damages awarded against Charlottezweb, plus all costs and attorney's fees.
   
A waiver by the Company of any breach of any provision of this Agreement by Subscriber shall not operate as or be construed as a continuing or subsequent waiver thereof or as a waiver of any breach of any other provision thereof.

Subscriber shall not transfer or assign this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company. Company may assign Agreement at anytime without consent from or notice to Subscriber. Company reserves right to cancel customers rights under this contract at anytime without further obligation.

Live Chat is available upon request as of December 2015.  There is no defined schedule for this service but it is available on most evenings (Eastern/NY time) or in the event that it becomes easier to chat about a support ticket in real time.  When a staff member is logged in, you'll see the option to chat at the bottom right of most pages on Charlottezweb.com, excluding the Forum (by design).

    (View our Live Chat announcement here).
     
  4. Phone Support is generally not offered.  There may be scenarios where we'll recommend this as an option for more complex issues however we prefer to utilize our ticketing system, forum or live chat as a means of more effectively providing auditable, secure support.
