Acceptable Use Policies & Guidelines

Graber, Inc. ("Grabers") provides web site hosting and dedicated services to its clients as a way for those clients to pursue the informational and commercial exchange the Internet affords. To protect the interests of all clients and to ensure optimal service levels, Grabers has developed the following Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") for clients as a guide to client rights and responsibilities when utilizing services offered by Grabers. Use of any service offered by Grabers by any client will constitute acknowledgment of and agreement to the terms outlined in this document. This AUP may be revised in part or in full at any time by Grabers and notices of changes will be posted to the Grabers community forums. Continued use of services offered by Grabers after such changes or enhancements to the AUP have been made will constitute acceptance of any revisions to the AUP.


All services provided by Grabers may be used for lawful purposes only. Grabers does not monitor, edit, censor, or take responsibility for client content or communications from within the network controlled by Grabers except inasmuch to determine if violations of the AUP have occurred once a suspected violation has been brought to the attention of Grabers. Therefore, clients are solely responsible for the content and use of their service as provided by Grabers and should ensure that such use falls within the guidelines of the AUP. Grabers cannot and will not monitor, edit, censor, or otherwise interfere with information or content clients may retrieve from sources outside the Grabers network even when such information is made available to clients through the use of material deliverable to any site or service maintained by Grabers, such as via email. Because of this, Grabers will not be responsible for injury or liability to any client resulting from communications that may be offensive, misleading, illegal, or otherwise unsuitable in the view of the client. Clients further agree to indemnify and hold harmless Grabers or any of its subsidiaries from claims resulting from the use of any provided service which damages the client of any other party.

Data Retention

Backups are performed by Grabers as a courtesy to clients; however, all clients are advised to maintain a current local copy of their files in the event backups are irretrievable for any reason. Grabers will not be deemed responsible for data or other loss resulting from the unavailability of backups. Backups will not be retained for accounts that have been cancelled, unless such retention is deemed necessary by Grabers. As cancellation requests are processed immediately, any required files from the affected account should be downloaded prior to the cancellation request.

Prohibited Activities

Commercial Advertising: Email:

The sending of unsolicited email (spamming) from a Grabers server or referencing a domain hosted by Grabers in any spam, whether originating from the Grabers network or not, is forbidden. Grabers maintains an excellent reputation as a zero-tolerance provider due to swift action on spam complaints. Complaints regarding spamming are investigated thoroughly by Grabers. Should abuses be found, Grabers reserves the right to immediately and without notice terminate the offending account. Sites that promote, sell, or otherwise provide access to spamware products or email lists or products that are solely for the purpose of extraction or sale of email addresses or which are used to send bulk email are not permitted on any Grabers server. Unsecured form to mail scripts, such as Matt Wright's formmail script, are likewise prohibited as are any naming variant of generic form to mail scripts (formmail.*, Formmail.*, FormMail.*). Unsecured form to mail scripts found to exist under any client account may be deleted or renamed at the discretion of Grabers.

Misuse of system resources:

To protect and maintain high availability of all servers, activities designed to cause harm to or monopolize the resources of any server in the Grabers network is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of programs that consume excessive CPU time; use of server space for backup or storage of material unrelated to the web site of an account; use of any provided mail services other than for the client's own account; resale of disk space without an appropriate reseller agreement; use of servers to engage in any malicious or illegal activity, including unauthorized access to remote systems or providing the means for such access or engaging in any activity that can be used as a means to begin remote system penetration; distribution of viruses, worms, or any other electronic destructive resource; or maintaining or creating any free for all (FFA) type sites.

Internet Relay Chat ("IRC") related materials are prohibited, without exception. This includes bots, bouncers, or any script or software package designed to facilitate the creation, maintenance, or access to any IRC server or channel. Client accounts found to have such software or scripts uploaded are subject to suspension or termination without notice. Scripts or software found to exist on any server will be deleted immediately upon discovery, without notice, and a warning issued. Further violations of this policy will result in account termination.

CGI or php-based shell scripts are prohibited. This includes any script that is used for the purpose of issuing shell-level commands or which acts as a proxy for shell access via a web browser rather than the use of the embedded SSH client in the control panel or the use of a standalone SSH client. Such scripts will be deleted without notice when found. Continued use of such scripts will be grounds for account termination.

Web proxy scripts are prohibited. This includes any script, such as nph-proxy, that allows anyone to browse to a third party web site from any server in the Grabers network or that otherwise masks the true origination point of browsing activities by use of network information associated with Grabers. Such scripts will be deleted when found. Repeated violations will result in account suspension or termination.

The weblog software Greymatter is not permitted on any Grabers server. Filtering is performed on all servers to deny access to the scripts Greymatter utilizes due to the resource issues created by those scripts. Installations found will be noted to the account holder for removal and transitioning to a new weblog software package.

Illegal or obscene content:

Use of any Grabers service to make any illegal or obscene content available via transmission, storage, or display of such material is prohibited. Accounts maintaining such content are subject to suspension or termination without notice.

Intellectual property violations:

Any activity that infringes on copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, software ownership, or trade secrets held by any third party entity is prohibited. Grabers is required by law to remove or suspend accounts that violate copyright held by third parties when notified that such infringement exists. Accounts that continually engage in such violations are subject to termination. Material that infringes on the privacy or rights of others, or that otherwise represents a reasonable, credible threat, is prohibited. Disputes between parties where clear legal decisions cannot be determined by individual claims must be settled between those parties and valid legal documentation must be provided for action related to content on sites within the Grabers network. In no instance will Grabers be responsible for individual site material for which no authoritative documentation has ben provided.

Other activities:

Any activity not defined above but judged by Grabers to be harmful to other clients or general operations of the network will be addressed on a case by case basis.
