2. Use of A-Web's service requires a certain level of knowledge in the use of Internet languages, protocols, and software. This level of knowledge varies depending on the anticipated use and desired content of Client's Webspace by the Client.

3. A-Web will exercise no control whatsoever over the content of the information passing through the network. A-Web makes no warranties or representations of any kind, whether expressed or implied for the service it is providing. A-Web also disclaims any warranty of merchant- ability or fitness for particular purpose and will not be responsible for any damages that may be suffered by the Client, including loss of data resulting from delays, non-deliveries or service interruptions by any cause or errors or omissions of the Client. Use of any information obtained by way of A-Web is at the Client's own risk, and A-Web specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through its services. Connection speed represents the speed of a connection to and do not represent guarantees of avail- able end to end bandwidth. A-Web expressly limits its damages to the Client for any non-accessibility time or other down time to the pro- rata monthly charge during the system unavailability. A-Web specifically denies any responsibilities for any damages arising as a consequence of such unavailability. In the event that this material is not "server-ready", A-Web may, at its option and at any time, reject this material, including but not limited to after it has been put on A-Web's server. A-Web agrees to notify Client immediately of its refusal of the material and afford Client the opportunity to amend or modify the material to satisfy the needs and/or requirements of A-Web. If the Client fails to modify the material, as directed by A-Web, within a reasonable period of time, which shall be determined between the parties themselves, the Agreement shall be deemed to be terminated.

IV. Hardware, Equipment & Software:

The customer is responsible for and must provide all telephone, computer, hardware and software equipment and services necessary to access A-Web. A-Web makes no representations, warranties or assurances that the Customer's equipment will be compatible with the A-Web service.

V. Age:

The Client certifies that he or she is at least 18 years of age.

VI. Internet Etiquette:

Electronic forums such as mail distribution lists and Use Net news groups all have expectations regarding subject area and appropriate etiquette for posting. Users of these forums should be considerate of the expectations and sensitivities of others on the network when posting material for electronic distribution. The network resources of A-Web may not be used to impersonate another person or misrepresent authorization to act on behalf of others or A-Web. All messages trans- mitted via A-Web should correctly identify the sender; users may not alter the attribution of origin in electronic mail messages or posting. Users must not attempt to undermine the security or integrity of computing systems or networks and must not attempt to gain unauthorized access.

VII. Reasonable Use:

The Client agrees to reasonable server CPU, memory, as well as bandwidth use to be determined by A-Web.

a) Excessive CPU usage examples - Excessive amount of CPU processing is expressly forbidden or your account will be immediately account terminated. This is valid for all customers of any of our servers.
For example:
IRC Daemons, are strictly prohibited
You cannot re-sell CGI access to other 3rd parties unless expressly used as a resold client.
You cannot send/receive Email bombs.
You cannot re-sell our counters or auto-responders or mailing lists.
You cannot run chat rooms, either Java or CGI are prohibited.
Other activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that we determine to be harmful to our subscribers, operations, or reputation. This includes activities that restrict or inhibit any other user from using the service we provide or the internet. Affordable WebDesigns will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

b) "Bandwidth" is defined as: The total amount of data downloaded any site on Affordable WebDesigns's servers that are within a single billing frame. For billing purposes, this is typically considered to be monthly.

"Unlimited Bandwidth" suggests that the data transfer on any site on Affordable WebDesigns's servers is not charged on a metered basis as long as the data transfer remains within reasonable expectations. Affordable WebDesigns considers 10 Gigabytes a reasonable traffic gauge for a site on its servers. Accounts whose total Bandwidth is in excess of this expectation will be addressed on an individual basis. (see "Abuse of Unlimited Traffic")

Abuse of Unlimited Traffic: Affordable WebDesigns's customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic for their web sites.
The intention of Affordable WebDesigns is not to provide an offsite storage area for electronic files, but to provide a large space to serve web documents. All web pages (html) must be 'linked' with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on Affordable WebDesigns's server, unless otherwise approved. Web sites that ar discovered to contain either/or no html documents or a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of Affordable WebDesigns management.

Any customer who violates Affordable WebDesigns's Policies regarding traffic abuse will be notified and given 48 hours to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within this allotted period, the client will be billed for the amount of traffic over the acceptable amounts.

The following will expressly be prohibited from Affordable WebDesigns's servers unless prior approval is received:
Sites with Banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains.
Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred are graphics)
Sites offering download files or archives. (This is any site where 50% or more of their monthly traffic is from file downloads)
Sites using more than 30% of system resources.

For "Front Page 2000", "Advanced Virtual", "Professional Virtual" and "Professional Reseller" accounts, traffic will go unmonitored until you reach 10gig of traffic per month. Thereafter, the normal data transfer cost of $25.00/10GB/month will automatically be billed to your account.

Affordable WebDesigns will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

VIII. Termination:

This Agreement may be terminated by either party, without cause, by giving the other party 30 days written notice. Prepaid fees shall not be refunded to the Client by A-Web.
