Commercial advertisements with e-mail unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail (commonly known as SPAM or UCE) and will result in account suspension or cancellation.
Commercial advertisements are un-welcome 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 breach of this ethical policy.
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. Excepted are opt-in mailing lists where the recipients have explicitly requested to receive advertisements and have an opt-out option. Proof must be made that recipient has opted-in to receive advertisements and / or newsletters in case of complaint.
We do allow clients to install their own chat rooms however chat rooms are subject to utilization policy, hence approval with the NextNetwork Solutions support team prior to utilizing the chat software is strongly recommended.. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install. Parachat software chatrooms are available from companies such as www.everyone.net (Plug-In-Community) or www.jpilot.com (remote java chat) and do not put any system hogs on our servers.
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.
All accounts are set up on an annual pre-pay basis. The work with account setup and possible domain registration itself is not charged a setup fee unless other wise notified. There is a $25 domain registration (if domain registration is not included free of charge). A free domain registration is provided with all the accounts. Such domain will be registered with NextNetwork Solutions proprietary bulk registration system and may or may not show proprieratery contact information. In any case and in the event customers wish to move their domain name to another provider, NextNetwork Solutions will not play a hindering role. Customer is welcome to request move of domain name registered through NextNetwork Solutions to another provider anytime and NextNetwork Solutions will immediately work on request and initiate process to remove the domain name from NextNetwork Solutions bulk registration system. Customer can then register this domain name with any other provider, as per customer’s preference. The Top Line package includes ANY and ALL fees for the domain name, they do also include the InterNIC fee for the one domain registration since it will be paid in full by NextNetwork Solutions.
NextNetwork Solutions reserves the right to change prices at any time for *new* customers only. Price increases can only be done during the annual charge and with 30 day notice. Unless other terms have been agreed upon, any account not brought current within a week (7 days) of e-mail notice or exceeding this time frame in any way 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 NextNetwork Solutions in online writing for a request for termination of services. All payment is in U.S. currency.
NextNetwork Solutions reserves the right to cancel service at any time due to policy violations. If NextNetwork Solutions institutes it’s right of cancellation, no pro-rated fees will be refunded or credited as policies have been violated. Each customer is expected to use his/her account for the purpose of maintaining a web site only, with responsibility and respect toward other Internet users. Common sense is the best guide as to what is right and wrong, and it’s the same guide we’ll use when analyzing an event of bad behavior. NextNetwork Solutions has the right to deny business to a customer, if this customer is being rude to a member of our staff, attempting to re-open an account after the user’s account has been previously cancelled due to a policy violation, constantly creating problems on a server, constantly having billing problems (credit card denied way too often, checks bouncing, etc), demanding or expecting in a rude fashion more than what our service provides or what we can do (“I want you to install X software for me. Do it now or else”, “I want more email accounts for free. I’m the customer and you have to satisfy me. So give me the extra email accounts”, etc etc). Always be polite. If customer is not polite, NextNetwork Solutions reserves the right to no longer provide customer with web hosting service. If NextNetwork Solutions decides to stop providing customer service due to any of these reasons, the account will be terminated immediately. Any violation of policies which results in extra costs will be billed to the customer (i.e. transfer, space, server destruction, server damage, devastative behavior, hacking, phreaking, phroning, etc).
