Fine Line Design
Acceptable Use Policy
Fine Line Design provides design, marketing and web hosting services. Fine Line Design acts as a WPP (Web Presence Provider) in order to host web pages on the World Wide Web. Fine Line Design has specific ethical concerns regarding the use of its services as detailed below. Fine Line Design and/or our various servers reserve the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services if management decides that the account has been inappropriately used.
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to any server, network, account, or customer of Fine Line Design is strictly prohibited.
Unauthorized Use of Accounts
Fine Line Design strictly prohibits the unauthorized use or attempted use of any Internet account without the owner's authorization. Such prohibited attempts include tricking other people into releasing their passwords, password robbery, security hole scanning, etc.
Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a Fine Line Design customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to Fine Line Design, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include (but are not limited to): warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal action, depending on the seriousness of the attack.
Traffic and Unlimited Storage
Fine Line Design is proud to offer to their clients services that may include non-metered traffic and unlimited disk space for their web sites. The intention of Fine Line Design is to provide a large space to serve web documents. The unlimited storage policy is not intended to be used as an offsite storage area for electronic files.
All web pages (HTML files) must be "linked" with any additional files such as .GIF images, .JPEG images, etc. Web sites that are found to contain no HTML documents and/or large numbers of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of Fine Line Design management. Customers are not allowed to have large archives of files which would be downloaded freely by others (i.e. shareware archives). Any customer who violates these restrictions will be billed for any additional charges. Fine Line Design customers who resell their space for any package other than a reseller's package are subject to warning, cancellation or suspension.
To maintain the integrity and performance of our services, the following storage limitations apply:

Fine Line Design will be the sole decision maker as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed while using our e-mail services. These "spamming" messages are generally unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate postings may result in account suspension or cancellation. E-mail is intended as a person-to-person medium, not a large-scale broadcast medium.
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These services tend to be large system hogs and can seriously degrade the overall performance of a server.
All accounts are setup on a pre-pay basis. The $75 setup fee is charged for all new accounts (and for major overhauls on existing accounts) and is non-refundable. All pricing is guaranteed for the term of the pre-payment only. Fine Line Design reserves the right to change prices at any time. Any account not brought current within a week of e-mail notice is subject to suspension. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer notifies Fine Line Design in writing for a request for termination of services. All payment is in U.S. currency.
Fine Line Design reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All refunds will be pro-rated if Fine Line Design exercises this right of cancellation. If cancellation is caused by customers violation of this Acceptable Use Policy, then no refund is due.
Customers may cancel their hosting service at any time. Refunds will not be given for the current month of service, but will be pro-rated thereafter. All cancellations must be done in writing via US mail with a valid signature of the primary contact, account name, reason for cancellation, and complete billing address. Any refunds will be made by company check within 30 days of receipt of cancellation.
