Web Hosting contract

Global Network Access Inc. Terms and Conditions for Web Page Hosting.

This agreement represents the complete agreement and understanding between Global Network Access Inc. (hereinafter called GNA) and the account holder. GNA may modify these terms and conditions, amplify them, and/or modify the prices, as well as discontinue or change the services offered. GNA will inform account holder in thirty days in advance via E-mail or postal mail.

GNA will provide services on its host computing systems to individual account holders in exchange for payment of fees and compliance with the terms and conditions of this document.

GNA’s set-up fee does not include the InterNIC domain name registration charge. If we are setting up a new domain, GNA must be prepaid the Internic fee, since the Internic now requires payment before setting up the domain name, verses being invoiced like in the past.

Public Domain materials (e.g., images, text, and programs) may be downloaded or uploaded using GNA’s services. Account holders may also re-distribute materials in the public domain. The account holder assumes all risks regarding the determination of whether the material is in the public domain.

As provided by United States federal law and by International treaties, copyrighted materials (e.g., images, text, and programs) may not be uploaded using GNA’s services without the permission of the copyright holder. Copyrighted materials may be downloaded for personal use. Except as expressly permitted, materials under copyright may not be distributed to others. Copyrighted material may not be changed nor can the author attribution notices nor the copyright notices be modified.

The account holder agrees to maintain a secure password to the account.

The account holder agrees that it is impossible from preventing all outside users from accessing their account holder information on GNA’s server. GNA does have security programs to help prevent such an occurrence, however it is not 100% full proof.

GNA is not responsible for making back-ups on account holder’s information.

The account holder agrees to use the services provided by GNA as permitted by applicable local, state, and federal laws. The account holder agrees, therefore, not to use these services to conduct any business or activity or solicit the performance of any activity that is prohibited by law.

The account holder agrees not to publish any XXX material on the site maintained by GNA. If account holder breaks this rule, the account will be cancelled without compensation.

The account holder acknowledges that GNA makes an honest effort to keep the information available on GNA's systems accurate. However, GNA can make no warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, or validity for the data and/or information available. Use of information obtained from or through GNA is at the risk of the account holder.

The account holder agrees to indemnify and hold GNA harmless from any claims, including attorney's fees, resulting from the account holder receiving GNA’s services which cause direct or indirect damage to another party.

GNA’s accounting cycle begins on the 1st of each month. Charges for new accounts are prorated. Charges for terminating accounts are not prorated and contain a $25 cancellation fee.

Service payments will be submitted in advance of receiving services.

Payment is due at beginning of each accounting cycle.

Delinquent accounts are those that remain unpaid ten days after beginning of accounting cycle.

Accounts that are delinquent are put on "accounting hold" and may not be used.

Accounts that are unpaid for a whole accounting cycle automatically have their files archived.

Accounts that are unpaid for 2 accounting cycles have their files purged.

There is a service reconnection charge equal to one half the currently charged set-up fee to remove accounts from "accounting hold" status.

There is a $15.00 service charge for each returned check.

Cancellation requests for GNA’s accounts must be received in writing via fax, or postal service at GNA’s main office. Such requests must be received by the 5 p.m. Central Time on the 15th of the previous month in order to be processed by the beginning of the next accounting cycle. Service fees will accumulate regardless if the account is active or not until written confirmation of cancellation is received.

Account holder is responsible for uploading information to their site via FTP. GNA is not responsible for uploading to account holder’s site.

Any use of GNA’s system resources that disrupts the normal use of the system for other GNA’s customers is considered to be abuse of system resources and is grounds for administrative intervention. Some examples of system abuse include spawning dozens of processes, consuming excessive amounts of memory or CPU for long periods of time and abnormal bandwidth usage. GNA has the right to terminate service if abuse continues to happen without compensation to account holder.

E-mail accounts will not allow you to send outgoing messages unless using GNA’s Internet access.

E-mail accounts have a size restriction of three megs per account, unless stated otherwise.

Account holder is responsible for retrieving their email, not GNA checking e-mail accounts for account holder.

GNA may revoke e-mail accounts if account holder sends bulk or unsolicited e-mail without compensation to account holder.

Depending on the nature and the severity of the abuse, the user may receive an e-mail warning or have their account suspended by GNA’s technical support. If the misuse is unintentional, the suspension may be rescinded following discussion with GNA’s technical support. If the misuse is intentional, the suspension may be rescinded at the discretion of the operations manager, and may require the payment of a service reconnection charge.

Violations of any of the GNA’s conditions of use are unethical and may be criminal offenses. You are expected to report to GNA any information you may have concerning instances in which the conditions of use have been or are being violated. When GNA becomes aware of possible violations, we will initiate an investigation. At the same time, in order to prevent further possible unauthorized activity, GNA may suspend access to services to the individual account in question. Confirmation of violations may result in cancellation of the individual account and/or criminal prosecution. The account suspension may be rescinded at the discretion of the Operations Manager, following payment of a reconnection charge.
