Terms of Service
Levinternet.com will not sell, distribute, reveal, or otherwise make available any customer information. We contribute our time and help to anti-spam organizations. Should we need to contact you directly regarding your specific account or service we will do so via email or phone, as provided by your indicated preference. If you are a member of our forum, you may receive mailings from us, as required to receive server announcements. You are free to request to not receive notifications/emails at any time from within your user panel at our forum.
Any content (written, visual, or implied) in the following areas is prohibited and is grounds for immediate suspension of service: racism or prejudice due to color, creed, or belief; profanity or obscene language; any violent/malicious content. We do not have the resources and time needed to govern our servers constantly which have growing and evolving content. However, if Levinternet.com is made aware of any questionable content on a Levinternet.com-hosted site, we will address the concerns directly with you and seek an amicable resolution. If anyone contacts us about content they have found on a Levinternet.com server that copyrights their own material or that they wish to be removed, we require legal documentation to take any further action. We do not allow Web Proxy Services / Scripts on our Server. Torrent seeding using torrentflux or similar script may also cause a suspention in our network immediately. You are also not allowed to host an Image Hosting site with us which takes excessive of cpu resources or server memory. Video streaming is prohibited. If malicious code material is found through a complaints from abuse department, certain action will be taken at an urgent manner. You are not allowed to run any cron more frequently than a 15 minute interval.
Opt-in Email Marketing If you choose to engage in marketing your site and/or services via email please heed the following. The only permitted form of email marketing is that in which the list is ‘opt-in’. By definition, opt-in is where people provide you with their email address specifically requesting to be on your email list for information about your site and/or service. If we find your account trasnmitting email to persons that did not authorize such activity, that is grounds to suspend and terminate your site. Note: On the flip side, the joining of an opt-in email list does not guarantee the legitimacy of such a list. Please contact us before taking any steps so that you will not be a victim of spam from second and third parties of such lists.
UCE, UBE, Spam Levinternet.com has a zero tolerance policy regarding unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and unsolicited bulk email (UBE) also known as ‘spam’. The definition of spam: An electronic message is ‘spam’ IF: (1) the recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; AND (2) the recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; AND (3) the transmission and reception of the message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.
You will be cited with “UCE/UBE Abuse” if you send any email to persons who have not specifically asked to receive email from you. The sending origin of such email is irrelevant. Upon confirmation of abuse, any Levinternet.com customer engaging in this practice will have their service suspended. Not only does spam place a strain on the server that can negatively effect that server’s uptime record and performance record, you subject that server to the possibility of being blacklisted.
If your site will be sending mailings out to subscribers, this is a checklist of what you are required to do:
You must not try to hide, forge or misrepresent the sender of the e-mail and sending site of the e-mail.
Bulk mailings must specifically state how the persons’ e-mail addresses were obtained and must indicate the frequency of the mailing.
Bulk mailings should contain simple and obvious unsubscribe mechanisms. We recommend that this be in the form of a working link to a one-click unsubscribe system; however, a valid ‘reply to:’ address may be used instead.
All subscription based e-mail must have valid, non-electronic, contact information for the sending organization in the text of each e-mail including either a phone number or physical mailing address.
All bulk e-mail must be solicited, meaning that the sender has an existing and provable relationship with the e-mail recipient and the recipient has not requested not to receive future mailings from the sender. Documentation of the relationship between the sender and the recipient must be made available to AOL upon request.
