Web Hosting Policies

At Tinker Graphics & Promotions, we value our Customers and wish to provide them with a positive experience. To offer you the best service possible, all Customers need to follow the same rules and guidelines. These policies are intended to make our Service available to all our Customers as consistently and efficiently as possible.

User-Supplied Content
All services may be used for lawful purposes only. Through Tinker Graphic's Service, you may have access to Chat Areas, Bulletin Boards, Web Pages, email, or other Services that enable you to send or post materials ("content") and make that content available to others. You must not submit, publish, or display on the Network any defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, obscene, infringing, or threatening content. In addition, you may not submit, publish, or display any content that violates any US Federal, State, or Local Law. You are solely responsible for the content you make accessible through the Tinker Graphics & Promotions Network. You may not use the Service to assist any other person or entity to violate any Federal, State, or Local Laws, Ordinances or Regulations.

Tinker Graphics & Promotions is not obligated to monitor the Network to examine available content. You hereby acknowledge that if we are made aware of content that is determined to be, in its sole discretion, unacceptable, undesirable, offensive, indecent, obscene, excessively violent or otherwise objectionable, Tinker Graphics & Promotions has the right, but not the obligation, to edit, remove or deny access to such content. Tinker Graphics & Promotions may disclose any content or records concerning Customer's account as required to satisfy any Law, Regulation, Governmental Request or Court Order.

Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on all Tinker Graphics & Promotions Servers. This includes Sites that may infer sexual content, display nudity, or link to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for Sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to Tinker Graphics & Promotions's Servers or any other Server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited. In addition, any Site Selling or promoting Bulk eMail Service is not allowed. Below are some examples of non-acceptable content or links:

Network Security
Customers may not use the Tinker Graphics & Promotions Network with an attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the Customer, logging into a Server or Account the Customer is not expressly authorized to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks in search of weakness, or violation of any other organization's Security Policy. Customers may not attempt to interfere or deny service to any User, Host or Network. This includes, but is not limited to, flooding, mail bombing, or other deliberate attempts to overload or crash a Host or Network. OLM will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of Systems or Network Security at other sites, including cooperating with Law Enforcement Authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. Users who violate System or Network Security may incur Criminal or Civil Liability..
CGI Scripts
Each Tinker Graphics & Promotions Account comes fully equipped with its own pre-configured CGI-Bin. Customers are free to use any CGI-Scripts provided with their account or add any additional ones they require. Any CGI-Scripts deemed to be adversely affecting the Server performance or the Network integrity may be shut down without prior notice. CGI-Script sharing with Domains not hosted by OLM is not allowed.

Chat Rooms
Tinker Graphics & Promotions prohibits its Customers from installing outside chat rooms on their Domain, as these tend to be a resource problem. Tinker Graphics & Promotions does provide its Customers a choice of Java Chat rooms to choose from for a nominal monthly charge. These chat rooms were designed to meet the growing needs of Customers and function without hindering the performance of the Servers for others.

Server Resources
Any Web Site that uses a high amount of Server resources (such as, but not limited to CPU Time, Memory Usage, and Network Resources) will be given an option of either upgrading their service level or reducing the resource used to an acceptable level.

Background Running Programs
Background Daemons in general are prohibited. Tinker Graphics & Promotions will consider requests on a Per Application Basis. If allowed, extra charges will be assessed based on resource requirements for system maintenance.

IRC
Tinker Graphics & Promotions currently prohibits its Customers from operating IRC or IRC Bots on any of the Servers in the Tinker Graphics & Promotions Network.

Commercial Advertising/ Mass Mailings
You must not use the Tinker Graphics & Promotions Network, Tinker Graphics & Promotions Equipment or any Tinker Graphics & Promotions eMail Address in connection with the transmission of spam, flames, mail bombs, or substantially similar, unsolicited email messages. Your Domain may not be referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address in any of the above. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service that in any way implicates the use of the Tinker Graphics & Promotions Network, Tinker Graphics & Promotions Equipment or any Tinker Graphics & Promotions eMail Address. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. For purposes of this provision, merely making one's email address accessible to the public will not constitute a request or invitation to receive messages.

If you are found to have spammed, without warning, Tinker Graphics & Promotions reserves the right to disable your Domain. In addition, Tinker Graphics & Promotions may impose a $100 penalty for each spam policy violation. Tinker Graphics & Promotions solely reserves the right to refuse or cancel service to known spammers. Lastly, Tinker Graphics & Promotions reserves the right to determine what violates this policy. As such, any violation may result in cancellation of services without refund.

Network Availability
Tinker Graphics & Promotions guarantees that the network will be available 99.9% of the time in a given month, excluding scheduled maintenance. Tinker Graphics & Promotions will refund the customer 5% of the monthly fee per additional 1 hour of downtime (up to 100% of customer's monthly fee). Network uptime includes functioning of all network infrastructure including routers, switches and cabling. Network downtime exists when a particular customer is unable to transmit and receive data and Tinker Graphics & Promotions records such failure. Tinker Graphics & Promotions cannot be responsible for its upline providers or any adverse conditions that may occur outside of the Tinker Graphics & Promotions network. Network downtime is measured from the time the trouble ticket is opened by a customer to the time the server is once again able to transmit and receive data.

Hardware Availability
Tinker Graphics & Promotions Networks guarantees the functioning of all leased hardware components and will replace any failed component at no cost to the customer. Hardware replacement will begin immediately upon identification of the hardware failure and is guaranteed to be complete within 2 hours of problem identification. In the event that it takes us more than 2 hours to replace faulty hardware, Tinker Graphics & Promotions will refund the customer 5% of the monthly fee per additional hour of down time (up to 100% of customer's monthly fee). Please note, the setup fee on dedicated servers is non refundable. Hardware is defined as the Processor(s), RAM, hard disk(s), motherboard, NIC card and other related hardware included under the server lease.

We agree not to share, rent, sell or release this information to any individual, entity or third party, for any reason, without the specific written consent of the Subscriber; with exception as required by Law, Regulation or Governmental Authority.

Tinker Graphics & Promotions is committed to protecting and securing all Subscriber provided information, through the use of firewalls and additional security measures in place at its physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of such information.
