SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE):
Cloudteria LLC 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 Cloudteria LLC may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of Cloudteria LLC 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 Cloudteria LLC's SPAM policy will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our SPAM policy, Cloudteria LLC will initiate an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification). During the investigation, Cloudteria LLC may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, Cloudteria LLC may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer's account. Further, Cloudteria LLC reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. Cloudteria LLC 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 Cloudteria LLC 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 Cloudteria LLC network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar or equivalent policy for their clients.
Anyone hosting websites or services on their server that support spammers or cause any of our IP space to be listed in any of the various Spam Databases will have their server immediately removed from our network. The server will not be reconnected until such time that you agree to remove ANY and ALL traces of the offending material immediately upon reconnection and agree to allow us access to the server to confirm that all material has been COMPLETELY removed. Severe violations may result in immediate and permanent removal of the server from our network without notice to the customer. Any server guilty of a second violation WILL be immediately and permanently removed from our network without notice.
IP Address Ownership:
If Cloudteria LLC assigns Customer an Internet Protocol address for Customer's use, the right to use that Internet Protocol address shall belong only to Cloudteria LLC, and Customer shall have no right to use that Internet Protocol address except as permitted by Cloudteria LLC in its sole discretion in connection with the Services, during the term of this Agreement.

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.

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 Cloudteria LLC's sole and absolute discretion.
