Acceptable Use Policy, "AUP"

DeveloHost Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") is provided to give our customers and users a clear understanding of what DeveloHost expects of them while using the service. All users of DeveloHost 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 Terms of Service ("TOS").

DeveloHost intends to provide its customers access to everything the Internet has to offer. While DeveloHost is firmly committed to the principles of privacy free speech, certain activities that may be damaging to the resources of both DeveloHost and the Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources of DeveloHost 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 DeveloHost 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
