11. E-Mail / Spam / UCE
Globus Hosting maintains a "zero tolerance" for spam and UCE. Spamming or "UCE" (Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail (does not necessarily need to be commercial in nature, however)) is the sending of unsolicited e-mail to any person or persons the sender does not know or have prior explicit consent to send the message(s) to. Using fictitious e-mail addresses of any domain housed on our network is forbidden. Unsolicited e-mail of any type (to e-mail addresses or newsgroup postings) is classified as UCE. UCE referencing sites on our servers in any manner (as originator, intermediary, destination or reply-to address) is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and your account may be terminated without notice or refund if you send UCE through our network or your site on our network is referenced in UCE. In addition, we reserve the right to impose a minimum $100 fee for each reported unsolicited e-mail. Additional charges may apply for administrative work or any penalties incurred by Globus Hosting or it's up line providers for abusing our services. Opt-Out mailing lists are strictly prohibited. This includes any lists or databases purchased or otherwise obtained from third parties, as the persons on such lists did not specifically solicit mail from you. Any mailing lists you maintain must be true confirmed opt-in in nature. (information regarding confirmed opt-in lists and responsible e-mail marketing can be found here and here) This requires a user to specifically request to be added to your mailing list. Having to unsubscribe from mailing lists during product registration and similar sign up forms is not classified as opt-in, but rather opt-out, which is in violation of this UCE policy. In addition, any opt-in mailing lists must include an automated unsubscribe facility where clicking on a link within the e-mail will automatically and immediately unsubscribe users from lists. Reply-to e-mail addresses to unsubscribe are known to be ignored and are unreliable, therefore not permitted within our UCE policy. Any violation of this policy may result in the immediate termination of your e-mail service and/or your entire account without notice at our sole discretion. No refunds will be issued for accounts canceled for sending or being referenced in UCE. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel service of known spammers. We may also notify any confirmed UCE to other service providers used or referenced in the transmission of UCE, as well as law enforcement agencies when appropriate.

12. EXCESSIVE USAGE
CGI, ASP and Cold Fusion and other scripts may cause excessive usage (system resources and/or bandwidth) which will detrimentally effect other sites on our network. Client takes full responsibility for all scripts executed from their account - regardless how the script was obtained. Any account found to be using excessive usage may be suspended or terminated without warning. When possible, advanced warning will be provided, however if the excessive usage is deemed to be causing immediate harm to our servers or network, no warning will be provided. Clients will need to make acceptable arrangements (typically removal of the offending script) with Globus Hosting prior to the account being reinstated. Repeated excessive usage will result in the account being canceled without the possibility for reinstatement or refund. Bulletin Boards (such as the Ultimate Bulletin Board) are known to be major resource hogs and are strongly discouraged on shared hosting accounts. If you expect to host a highly used bulletin board script, you may want to consider moving to a dedicated server to prevent potential account suspension or cancellation. Chat scripts are not allowed on our servers due to their known resource demands. Globus Hosting retains sole discretion over what constitutes excessive usage.
