High Resource Policy
Any site that is deemed as impairing the performance of our servers either by high disk utilization, high bandwidth usage, or high CPU usage will be entered into our "High Resource Membership" program. High Resource sites are sites that use an excessive amount of system resources such as bandwidth, Storage or CPU utilization. It is at anch.org's sole discretion to decide which sites are "High Resource" sites. Sites who have been deemed as a "High Resource" site may be asked to supply additional donations to cover upgrades in equipment and/or bandwidth.

CGI Scripts
We can enable CGI on your web page if you need it. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation. We also check scripts for security holes.

Chat Rooms
We do not allow free clients to install their own chat rooms (unless the chat server is hosted elsewhere). These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot normally allow it.

Background Running Programs
We do not allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one to one basis and for founding members only. If you want to run your own server and try these out, go for it!

IRC
Again, we currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers but you are free to host such programs yourself.

Commercial Advertising - Email:
Our servers may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of spam, flames, or mail bombs. Your domain may not be referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address in any of the above. We consider spam any mass unsolicited message in the mediums of Newsgroups and Email If you are found to have spammed, then we may immediately, without warning, disable your domain.

As such, any violation will result in immediate deactivation of services without refund. There are currently no ISPs, domain referrers or link exchanges that we know of who allow spam. If you want advertising that works join our Free-for-all links page or speak to our marketing department.

Server Abuse:
Anybody trying to access the shell or any other persons web site with out any permission from the system operator or owner of the site is strictly prohibited. Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a server will result in immediate deactivation of services without refund. If you are a hacker and have the legitimate desire to investigate our servers for security flaws, please at least notify us first!

Refusal of Service:
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel service at our sole discretion.

Payment Policies
All accounts are set up within 1 business day upon receipt of full payment. Payment is due each anniversary period following the date the account was established. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time it is terminated. Requests for termination must be submitted in writing to anch.org.

Cancellation
Anch.org. reserves the right to cancel service at any time. Donations paid in advance of cancellation may be pro-rated and paid by anch.org if anch.org institutes its right of cancellation. If cancellation is caused by violation of these policies, then no refund can be considered.

Customers can cancel service any time and we will consider refunding donations, if requested, on a case-by-case basis. Due to security concerns, all account cancellations must be done in such a way that we know it's you and not some third party, such as writing via US mail with a valid signature of the primary contact of the account, account name, reason for cancellation, and last 4 digits of credit card, if there is one on file. If donations were made by check or bank transfer, the zip/postal code of the primary contact must also be included.
