Acceptable Usa Policy

Home > Acceptable Usa Policy

This Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) governs your use of Olengofer Studios's eCommerce design and web hosting service. Violation of this AUP may result in suspension or termination of your service. In the event of a dispute between you and Olengofer Studios regarding the interpretation of this AUP, Olengofer Studios' interpretation, in its reasonable commercial judgment, shall govern. Arbitration is an option, but it will be at your expense to engage a professional arbitrator.

The following is the entire Acceptable Use Policy agreement between Olengofer Studios and the personal or corporate account holder. Olengofer Studios provides World Wide Web Hosting, web design and server script installation. Olengofer Studios has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting with the use of its servers and equipment involved in these services. Olengofer Studios' general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. Olengofer Studios reserves the rights to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by Olengofer Studios when it is decided that the account has been inappropriately used.

What is Appropriate Usage?

Olengofer Studios is designed to serve the web hosting needs of small, independently owned and operated businesses in a single country. It is not appropriate to use our services to support large enterprises or internationally based businesses with a sustained demand that places undue burden on our systems or negatively impacts use by small, independently owned and operated businesses.

Olengofer Studios operates its own servers as a shared web hosting service, which means that customers' web sites and other email or storage services are hosted from a common pool of servers. Olengofer Studios uses abuse controls to help ensure that use of our services does not adversely affect the performance of our system or other customers' sites. It is not appropriate to use an account primarily as an online storage space or for archiving electronic files.

Disk Space

If you use your services consistent with the terms of Service and these paragraphs, your site can grow as large as necessary to meet your small business needs within your currently subscribed package. To ensure a great experience for all, we will place some constraints on how much of our resource pool it utilized. The vast majority of our customers' sites grow at rates well within our rules, but our abuse controls may cause a brief delay while we evaluate if expansion is appropriate for your particular package.

Bandwidth

In most cases, if you use our services consistent with our terms of Service, visitors to your web site will be able to download and view as much content from your site as they like. However, in certain circumstances, our server processing power, server memory, or abuse controls could limit downloads from your site. You will always be able to use as much bandwidth as your account needs. Should any issues arrise with the amount of bandwidth being consumed by your store, we will contact you to see how we can best accomodate you with another subscription package level.

You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

Email Storage

You do not have to worry about hitting a storage limit if you use our services consistent with the terms of Service and our acceptable usage policy. If you do exceed the allocated email storage limit, Olengofer Studios will increase your space along with your appropriate small business needs if a larger email package is subscribed.

Unlimited

The only limits according to package subscriptions is the number of products in your store, and the amount of storage in your email account. All other services are unlimited, but certain restrictions may be enforced if there are excessive resources being consumed by your store.
