Sean Casey & Associates, LLC also provides consulting services and web-based application development services.
If using the AOK.net domain registration service, please review and agree to the documents linked at AOK.net. Registration of a domain name with us constitutues your agreement to the terms in those documents.
Individuals and Companies (Customer) subject to the terms of this Agreement and the Acceptable Use Policy detailed herein are those that have their domain registry DNS entry set to "ns1.scasey.com" or "ns2.scasey.com" or to any other DNS server managed or controlled by Provider or who use the Email services of any such domain or whose domain name is registered through AOK.net or who have Internet content (web sites) for such domains on Provider's servers or who have their Internet servers connected to Provider's Internet connection. The Owners, Administrative and Technical contacts of those domains and servers agree to these terms.
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server or Customer of Provider is strictly prohibited.
Unauthorized use of other people's accounts or computers
Provider will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Such attempts include, but are not limited to, "internet scamming" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning, etc.
Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a Customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to Provider, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation and civil or criminal legal action, depending on the seriousness of the attack.
While Provider is a strong advocate of a free Internet, hate materials, racist materials, or content advocating unlawful practices are prohibited.
Utilization and Storage Limitations
Provider's Customers are privileged to be offered an unmonitored account in terms of bandwidth. This means Provider does not pro-actively monitor bandwidth usage of our Customers. Provider's bandwidth policy is: Customers are entitled to use as much bandwidth as necessary as long as they (a) do not harm other Customers located on the same machine or on other machines of Provider's network and (b) comply with all other terms & conditions.
All accounts may have a moderation throttling utility applied to their throughput. This moderation throttling utility measures the account's usage based on averages derived from various server tasks and services such as average CPU utilization, FTP utilization, HTTP bandwidth utilization, and Email utilization. On the basis of the meaningful average value the moderation throttling software decides if a delay of an offending account is determined to be necessary in order to assure uptime, reliability and performance for other domains on the same machine.
Provider does set a limit on storage (disk utilization) in an amount specified in the individual agreement with each Customer. If the storage for which the Customer has contracted is exceeded, there may be charges in addition to the monthly contracted fees.
Any Customer who violates Provider's policies will not necessarily be notified. In rare cases, Provider may have to temporarily deactivate and/or turn off hosting accounts without prior notification and/or reason. If the Customer takes no action to initiate reactivation of hosting account and cessation of abusive usage of service, the hosting account will be terminated permanently without refund.
E-mail and USENET Abuse
Commercial advertisements via e-mail: Unsolicited commercial advertisements (UCE or commonly, SPAM) are not allowed and will result in account suspension or cancellation. This applies to UCE originating on Provider's servers as well as UCE which references or links to web sites on Provider's servers.
Security and Virus Protection
Customers are responsible for securing and protecting their own computer system(s) and network. Provider does not offer anti-virus or virus recovery services. Customers should contact the manufacturer of their computer(s), or a qualified provider of virus recovery services, in order to obtain assistance with this matter.
Background Running Programs
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on an individual basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed, if applicable.
Provider does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.
Payments for all hosting services are due and payable in advance in an amount not less than one (1) month's fees for monthly services. We are pleased to accept advance quarterly or annual payments if that is the Customer's preference. Annual fees are to be paid in full when due.
Accounts that are more than 60 days in arrears are subject to suspension or cancellation without notice.
As a service to our Domain Registration Customers, we will typically renew your domain registration when required to prevent the loss of your domain name. If automatic renewal is not desired notification must be received by Provider at firstname.lastname@example.org not less than one (1) month prior to the expiration date of the current registration to avoid liability for the domain registration renewal fees.
Provider reserves the right to cancel service at any time for policy violations or non-payment. In case of such cancellation, no pro-rated fees will be refunded or credited. Each Customer is expected to use his/her account for maintaining a web site only, with responsibility and respect toward other Internet users and Provider Customers.
