As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, Okie Net
Web Hosting offers its customer (also known as "Subscribers") and their
customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public,
private, commercial and non-commercial information. Okie Net Web Hosting
respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and
dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at
issue, Okie Net Web Hosting reserves the right to take certain preventive or
corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, Okie Net Web
Hosting has developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and
explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement, and is
intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when using Okie Net
Web Hosting' services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.
One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it.
This fact accounts for much of the Internet's openness and value, but it also
places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it,
both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to
others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep
in mind that Okie Net Web Hosting cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for
the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the
subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information
obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted
to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because Okie
Net Web Hosting cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to
do so, Okie Net Web Hosting cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its
subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet
When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in
mind that Okie Net Web Hosting does not review, edit, censor or take
responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place
information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for
copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the
information created is carried over Okie Net Web Hosting' network and may reach
a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of Okie
Net Web Hosting, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other
subscribers and may affect Okie Net Web Hosting' goodwill, business, reputation
or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate Okie Net Web Hosting
policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or
subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. Okie
Net Web Hosting does not allow bulk mailing lists at all, if you need to market
or have a bulk mailing list we suggest you check into a service to provide this
need. Any account seen sending bulk emails will be suspended. We will also limit
the number of emails a account can send per hour to 50 per hour. It is
not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward
Okie Net Web Hosting, but also because it can overload Okie Net Web Hosting'
network and disrupt service to Okie Net Web Hosting' subscribers. Also,
maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, Okie
Net Web Hosting will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing. A
$250 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating
the SPAM. Furthermore Okie Net Web Hosting reserves the right to prosecute for
this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should Okie Net
Web Hosting choose to pursue and prosecute.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just
described rests primarily with the subscriber. Okie Net Web Hosting will not, as
an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure
that the comply with Okie Net Web Hosting' policy or applicable law. However,
when Okie Net Web Hosting becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any
action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of
information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed
to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other
action deemed appropriate by Okie Net Web Hosting.
Okie Net Web Hosting is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves
providers of Internet services, and that information reaching Okie Net Web
Hosting' facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer
of the subscriber or from another third party. Okie Net Web Hosting does not
require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor
transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. Okie Net Web
Hosting reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its
subscribers. Also, Okie Net Web Hosting may take action against the Okie Net Web
Hosting' subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even
though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, Okie
Net Web Hosting anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will
cooperate with Okie Net Web Hosting in any corrective or preventive action that
Okie Net Web Hosting deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective
or preventive measures is a violation of Okie Net Web Hosting policy.
Okie Net Web Hosting will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail
messages sent or receive by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law,
governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. Okie Net Web Hosting
may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its
facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, Okie Net Web Hosting may disclose
information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber,
a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a
court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation
or governmental request. Okie Net Web Hosting assumes not obligation to inform
the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases,
may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, Okie Net Web Hosting
may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network
where necessary to protect Okie Net Web Hosting and others from harm, or where
such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However,
Okie Net Web Hosting will never sell information to other services or outside
Okie Net Web Hosting expects that its subscribers who provide Internet services
to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of
online communications. A subscriber's failure to comply with those laws will
violate Okie Net Web Hosting policy. Finally, Okie Net Web Hosting wishes to
emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify Okie Net
Web Hosting for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or Okie Net Web
Hosting policy resulting in loss to Okie Net Web Hosting or the bringing of any
claim against Okie Net Web Hosting by any third party. This means that, if Okie
Net Web Hosting is sued because of a subscriber's or customer of a subscriber's
activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded
against Okie Net Web Hosting, plus costs and reasonable attorney's fees.
We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users,
including Okie Net Web Hosting and its subscribers, as responsible members of
the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber's violation of this AUP should
be sent to
