However, if SATTHOST is made aware of any questionable content on a SATTHOST-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 SATTHOST server that copyrights their own material or that they wish to be removed, we require legal documentation to take any further action.

Using any web hosting account provided by SATTHOST as a backup/storage device is not permitted. SATTHOST web hosting accounts are not to be used for the purposes of distributing and/or storing an unusual amount of files. We are a web hosting service not a remote file storage service. Any website whose disk space usage for storing the files exceed 70% of its total usage, either in terms of total size or number of files, will be deemed to be using an unusual amount of files. At that point, if we find that those files are illegal or harmful in any way, you will be notified. If you do not have any negative intentions such as causing harm to our server or to others with the files you keep, then you have nothing to worry about.
SATTHOST services, including all related equipment, networks, and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. SATTHOST systems may be monitored for all lawful purposes, including to ensure that use is authorized, for management of the system, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. Use of SATTHOST system(s) constitutes consent to monitoring for these purposes
Any account found connecting to a third party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control must be with expressed written consent from the third party. SATTHOST may, at its discretion, request and require documentation to prove access to a third party network or system is authorized.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our terms of service in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice.

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 accepted 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 transmitting 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.
9. ZERO TOLERANCE SPAM POLICY
SATTHOST has a zero-tolerance policy regarding unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and unsolicited bulk email (UBE) also known as spam mail. The definition of spam: An electronic message is spam mail IF:
(1) the recipients 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 an email to persons who have not specifically asked to receive the email from you. The sending origin of such email is irrelevant. Upon confirmation of abuse, any SATTHOST customer engaging in this practice will have their service suspended. Not only does spam place a strain on the server that can negatively affect 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:
10) SCRIPT USAGE POLICY:
SATTHOST provides our clients with Web Hosting accounts that permit the use of CGI files, PHP scripts, and other executable programs. Because these scripts use much more system resources than standard HTML pages, certain restrictions must be made governing the use of such “active content” systems. We regret that in many cases we are unable to determine what specific script or application is causing the system resource over-run. Under most circumstances, we are able to pin-point it to the offending account on the system. The following rules apply to all “active content” files as listed above:
Any accounts with scripts found in violation of these policies are subject to the future scrutiny of all CGI, Perl, CFM, ASP, and PHP scripts by our System Administrators. If a script is found to be harmful to the system, it will be killed immediately and the account locked down until the account owners have been contacted. Malicious scripts are subject to immediate account termination without refund of any pre-paid moniesViolations of the Terms of Service will waive the refund policy.
11) RESOURCE USAGE POLICY:
11.a) Server Resource Abuse Policy (SRAP):
Any website on our shared servers that uses a high amount of server resources (CPU, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option to pay for a dedicated server. The abuse and misuse of system resources is a serious problem, and SATTHOST does not tolerate it. Accounts on a shared server must be shared with other users, so we must limit how much of the CPU and memory that can be used by anyone account.
