Terms of Service: 

SWD Hosting is a Division of Skorski Web Design Inc.

SWD Hosting provides Internet World Wide Web page hosting, Marketing, and Development. SWD Hosting has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting with the use of its server and equipment involved in these services.

SWD Hosting general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. SWD Hosting has specific ethical concerns regarding the use of its computers detailed below. SWD Hosting reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by SWD Hosting when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used.

Server Abuse

Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of SWD Hosting is strictly prohibited.

Unauthorized use of other people's accounts or computers SWD Hosting. will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Such attempts include "Internet scamming" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning etc.

Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a SWD Hosting customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to SWD Hosting, 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE - SWD Hosting has the right to discontinue service, or deny access to anyone who violates our Policies or the terms and conditions shown below WITHOUT WARNING OR PRIOR NOTICE. No refunds of fees paid will be made if account termination is due to violation of the terms outlined below.

Customers may not run IRC, bots or clients. Unacceptable uses also include, but are NOT limited to: Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailings, newsgroup spamming, pornographic content, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, warez, cracks, software serial numbers, and/or anything else determined by SWD Hosting to be unacceptable use of SWD Hosting's services including abuse of server resources.

Accounts may be terminated that include the following content or which have links to the following content:

Providing material that is grossly offensive to the Web community including blatant expressions of bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity. Promoting or providing instructional information about illegal activities, or promoting physical harm or injury against any group or individual. Displaying material containing obscene nudity or pornographic material. Displaying material that exploits children under 18 years of age. Acts of copyright infringement including offering pirated computer programs or links to such programs, information used to circumvent manufacturer-installed copy-protect devices, including serial or registration numbers for software programs, or any type of cracker utilities.

Unsolicited Email (Spam).

Unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account suspension or cancellation. Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation. See the newsgroup or mailing list's charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. "Spamming," or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such. Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five or six recipients, is by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. E-mail is a person-to-person medium, not a broadcast medium. Upon your first Spam offense your mail will be disabled for 72 hours. Upon your second Spam offense your entire domain will be disabled for 72 hours and you will be fined $150.00 per sent Spam. Upon your third offense your account with SWD Hosting will be terminated, you will be fined $300.00 per sent Spam. No refunds will be given if your account is terminated for Spam.


CGI Scripts

Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation without prior warning.

Chat Rooms

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, without approving it with the SWD Hosting Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.

Abuse of SMTP Mail Server- Deprecated

We do not allow clients to send more than 1000 pieces of e-mail per day. If you do send more than 1000 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse. If you are sending legitimate e-mails and they total more than 2000 per day your account will be moved to a special server that is specifically designed to handle high volumes of e-mail. You will be charged $75.00/month in addition to your regular hosting charges if your account is moved to this server. Please contact support@swdhosting.ca to have your domain moved.
