Terms of Service
In these terms, Chex Computers is used as a name for On Track Ltd. Any reference to Chex Computers shall be read as a reference to On Track Ltd.
All services provided by Chex Computers may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any EEC, United Kingdom or English law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by copyright and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Chex Computers and its employees from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.
Examples of unacceptable content or links:
- Pornography and sex-related merchandising
- Pirated software
- Hacker programs or archives
- Warez sites
Chex Computers will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Pornography and sex merchandising is prohibited on all Chex Computers's servers. Adult content sites are allowed, only with the express agreement of Chex Computers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or link to adult content elsewhere. Chex Computers will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision.
Also prohibited are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to Chex Computers's servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.
Chex Computers provides web hosting to many clients, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. When you abide by these guidelines, you help ensure that our obligations to you and our other customers are met.
Sites with banners, graphics or cgi's running from their domain used on other domains:
When you employ services such as Link Exchange or a cgi host who lets 1000's of others link to their site, it is important that you require any sites you exchange ads with to display your ad on their server. Not only will not abiding to this guideline cause your site to load slowly, you will be responsible for the data transfer used in this process.
Sites using more than 15% of system resources:
If one client's site uses too much system resource it can slow down itself and other sites running on the same server, therefore we have to manage resources available to ensure a fast service for all our customers. Sites that use a large levl of system resources are welcome but may need to transfer to a higher specification account and/or a server with more resources available. Chex Computers will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Chat Rooms & IRC:
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, except on accounts specially ordered and set up for this purpose. These tend to be a large drain on system resources and we cannot allow it as a standard account option. We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our UK servers. IRC and IRC bots can only be run from dedicated IRC accounts running on our US based servers.
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited e-mail including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, from a Chex Computers server or using an e-mail address or domain that is maintained on an Chex Computers machine as reference is STRICTLY prohibited. A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site. Chex Computers will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of these provisions.
System and Network Abuse
Any attempt to undermine, compromise the security of, or otherwise cause harm to any Chex Computers server or customer accounts is strictly prohibited.
Background Running Programs:
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a case-by-case basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. Please contact us for further details.
Refusal of Service:
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion.
