The AUP specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities.

OneSpiffy provides support to our subscribers. OneSpiffy only ensures that domain and hosting relates service is online and is remotely accessible. OneSpiffy does not offer technical support for application specific issues such as CGI programming, PHP, HTML or any other such issue. We encourage you to use our Ticket System on our web site.
OneSpiffy takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (referred to as “SPAM” or “UCE”) over our network. Very simply this means that customers may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Customers may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other networks. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service.
a. Violations due to the practice or UCE will result in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our UCE policy, will initiate an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification). During the investigation, we may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our UCE policy, OneSpiffy may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer’s account.
b. OneSpiffy further, reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. The Company will notify law enforcement officials if the violation is believed to be a criminal offense.
c. As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over the network, it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients.
If OneSpiffy assigns Customer an Internet Protocol address for Customer’s use, the right to use that Internet Protocol address shall belong only to OneSpiffy, and Customer shall have no right to use that Internet Protocol address except as permitted by in its sole discretion in connection with the Services, during the term of this Agreement OneSpiffy shall maintain and control ownership of all Internet Protocol numbers and addresses that may be assigned to Customer by , and reserves the right to change or remove any and all such Internet Protocol numbers and addresses, in its sole and absolute discretion. Our allocation of IP addresses is limited by ARIN’s new policies. These new policies state that use of IP addresses for IP based virtual hosts will not be accepted as justification for new IP addresses. What this means to you is that you MUST use name-based hosting where possible. We will periodically review IP address usage, and if we find that clients are using IP addresses where name-based hosting could be used, we will revoke authorization to use those IP addresses that could be used with name-based hosting.
OneSpiffy will monitor Customer’s bandwidth. OneSpiffy shall have the right to take corrective action if Customer’s usage negatively impacts other clients.
Users are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of the Network. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability. OneSpiffy will investigate occurrences, which may involve such violations and may involve, and cooperate with, law enforcement authorities in prosecuting Users who are involved in such violations. These violations include, without limitation:
i. Accessing data not intended for such User or logging into a server or account, which such User is not authorized to access.
ii. Attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization.
iii. Attempting to interfere with service to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, via means of overloading, “flooding”, “mail bombing” or “crashing”.
iv. Forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or newsgroup posting.
v. Taking any action in order to obtain services to which such User is not entitled.
OneSpiffy is under no duty to look at each customer’s or user’s activities to determine if a violation of the AUP has occurred, nor do we assume any responsibility through our AUP to monitor or police Internet-related activities.
Any User, which determines to have violated any element of this Acceptable Use Policy, shall receive an email, warning them of the violation. The service may be subject at OneSpiffy’s discretion to a temporary suspension pending a User’s agreement in writing, to refrain from any further violations.
Users that have been determined to have committed a second violation of any element of this Acceptable Use Policy shall be subject to immediate suspension or termination of service without further notice.
We reserve the right, to drop the section of IP space involved in Spam or Denial-of-Service complaints if it is clear that the offending activity is causing great harm to parties on the Internet. In particular, if open relays are on your network or a customer’s network, or if denial of service attacks are originating from your network. In certain rare cases, we may have to do this before attempting to contact you. If we do this, we will contact you as soon as is feasible.
OneSpiffy reserves the right to suspend network access to any customer if in the judgment of the network administrators the customer’s server is the source or target of the violation of any of the other terms of the AUP or for any other reason which OneSpiffy chooses. If inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of the Customer in question will be deactivated until an investigation is complete. Prior notification to the Customer is not assured. In extreme cases, law enforcement will be contacted regarding the activity. The customer will not be credited for the time the customer’s machines were suspended.
