Netwisp provides 24 x 7 technical support to our subscribers (except for few holidays and short company meetings when we close our offices.) We limit our technical support to our area of expertise. The following is our guidelines when providing support: Netwisp provides support related to your server or virtual site's physical functioning. Netwisp does not offer tech support for application specific issues such as CGI programming, HTML, MySQL, PHP, or any other such issue.

When possible, Netwisp encourages you to use the ticketing system from your members portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Netwisp 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 Netwisp may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of Netwisp 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.
- Violation of Netwisp's SPAM policy will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our SPAM policy, Netwisp will initiate an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification). During the investigation, Netwisp may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, Netwisp may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer's account. Further, Netwisp reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. Netwisp 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 Netwisp 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 Netwisp network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, 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.

If Netwisp assigns Customer an Internet Protocol address for Customer's use, the right to use that Internet Protocol address shall belong only to Netwisp, and Customer shall have no right to use that Internet Protocol address except as permitted by Netwisp in its sole discretion in connection with the Services, during the term of this Agreement. Netwisp shall maintain and control ownership of all Internet Protocol numbers and addresses that may be assigned to Customer by Netwisp, and Netwisp reserves the right to change or remove any and all such Internet Protocol numbers and addresses, in its sole and absolute discretion. Our allocation of IP addresses is limited by ARIN's new policies. 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.

Netwsp will monitor Customer's bandwidth and disk usage. Netwisp shall have the right to take corrective action if Customer's bandwidth or disk usage exceeds the Agreed Usage. 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 Netwisp's sole and absolute discretion. If Netwisp takes any corrective action under this section, Customer shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior to such action.

- Second Violation: Users that Netwisp determines to have committed a second violation of any element of this Acceptable Use Policy shall be subject to immediate suspension or termination of service without further notice.
We reserve the right, to drop the section of IP space involved in Spam or Denial-of-Service complaints if it is clear that the offending activity is causing great harm to parties on the Internet. In particular, if open relays are on your network or a customer's network, or if denial of service attacks are originating from your network. In certain rare cases, we may have to do this before attempting to contact you. If we do this, we will contact you as soon as is feasible.
Netwisp reserves the right to suspend network access to any customer if in the judgment of the Netwisp network administrators the customer's server is the source or target of the violation of any of the other terms of the AUP or for any other reason which Netwisp chooses. If inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of the Customer in question will be deactivated until an investigation is complete. Prior notification to the Customer is not assured. In extreme cases, law enforcement will be contacted regarding the activity. The customer will not be credited for the time the customer's machines were suspended.
Netwisp wishes to emphasize that in agreeing to the Netwisp Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and Terms of Service (TOS), customer indemnifies Netwisp for any violation of the AUP and TOS that results in loss to Netwisp or the bringing of any claim against Netwisp by any third-party.
