Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal legal action, according to the seriousness of the attack.

Adult Oriented Websites
We do not allow adult oriented websites on our servers due to the fact that they are resource intensive. We do not feel is it fair to our other customers to allow sites that inhibit their performance. We reserve the right to terminate any adult sites, damaging, violation, hacking that are found on our servers without issuing a refund.

File backups and restore
Although MERCUMAYA.NET does back up data daily, it is the users responsibility to back up all files.

At no time will we
be liable for lost data, and if asked to restore files for an individual customer outside of a complete file system failure. Customers who use CGI/PHP scripts to maintain file-based databases should take precautions to ensure that data is not lost in the event of a shortage of disk space (including over quota
errors), reboots or killed processes. At no time shall MERCUMAYA.NET be liable in the event a customer CGI/PHP application fails to take proper precautions
and truncates user data, even in the event of a reboot or shortage of diskspace.

Examples include, but are not limited to the following: Unauthorized access, use, probe, or scan of a systems security or authentication measures, data or traffic. Interference with service to any user, host or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system and broadcast attacks, forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Webhosty server, customer of Webhosty or servers outside Webhosty is strictly prohibited, and is followed by an account deactivation with no refund.

If your IP is blocked by any of the above mentioned society, MERCUMAYA.NET will not be responsible and you need to contact your Internet Service Provider about your problem.

Server Resources
It is a violation for anyone to post information or to include programs on our servers that consume server system resources and slow down the server in turn. Any party that slows our servers down, can and will be notified. MERCUMAYA.NET reserves the right to terminate any running software processes that are overloading a server, or slowing it down heavily without any notice to customer and customer will be inform later.

The CPU/RAM consumption of a web site may in no way affect the performance of a server. This means that the implementation of scripts on a web site must be carefully studied by the account's owner. Examples of what can cause high CPU/RAM usage are:
- Scripts that handle too much data from text files. An example of this is a message board. The UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board) & Ikonboard is well known to consume very high amounts of CPU anytime it has to handle its flat file/mysql database (like when someone posts a message).
- Perl scripts constantly executed consume a lot of server resources, since the Perl interpreter must be launched each time the script is called.
- Scripts with long loops.
- Scripts that are constantly calling a database and doing complex queries.
- We reserve the right to disable any script that affects normal shared server operation without notice.
- Web sites with excessive traffic will consume plenty of CPU and RAM, since the webserver has to handle more. Any web site with more than 140,000 hits per day will be considered a high traffic web site. Client may upgrade to Dedicated Server. The user will be alerted if his/her site goes beyond such limit, and will be given 1 day or less to either upgrade his/her plan to accomodate the added traffic or to lower the traffic. If not, the account's traffic consumption will be controlled, or, the account might get cancelled or suspended.

If a script (and its instances) is found to be consuming too much CPU power (more than 10%) and/or RAM, and it's affecting the overall performance of a server, MERCUMAYA.NET has the right to move/block the script, and warn the account's owner. The warning will consist of a request to improve the performance of the script, or to replace it with a more efficient one. If, the account's user pays no attention to a warning (or several ones) and puts the script back to operation, MERCUMAYA.NET has the right to again block the script and/or change the account's password until the user complies. If, after that, the user still pays no attention to the warning and puts the script back, MERCUMAYA.NET will delete the account. No refunds for the current month of service will be given (advanced payments will be refunded).

Server Abuse:
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a MERCUMAYA.NET server or customer of MERCUMAYA.NET is strictly prohibited. MERCUMAYA.NET will pursue legal action to the fullest extent for all abuse of the MERCUMAYA.NET Network.

If any terms or conditions are failed to be followed it will result in grounds for account suspension or de-activation. MERCUMAYA.NET reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice. If MERCUMAYA.NET deactivates your account(s) for violating policy, your will forfeit your rights to a refund...and none will be given. No refunds for advance payments, on de-activated accounts. Normal policy is a warning first, and account de-activation the second offense. Serious offenses may cause immediate de-activation.
