This is the lightweight overview & notes on reasonable and acceptable
use as opposed to the formal Terms & Conditions
which can be viewed here.
In essence, we aim to provide value, scope and a range of resources beyond
expectations where it's not in conflict with our own operations, other
users, decency, or morality. (In most cases this would include 'the law'.)
The Genesis-Internet platform is for Entrepreneurs, Small, Medium and
'Large' businesses - as opposed to Institutions and Corporations.
We endeavour to 'level-the -playing-field' and give private enterprise the
best chance of competing favourably with those who use their authority,
size or influence to control or manipulate the market.
The systems in place are extremely efficient, technologically advanced and
dynamically increasing in speed and capacity. But, even where we
offer 'unlimited' facilities it should be interpreted as 'within
reasonable bounds'. That is, we don't claim or intend that you could
process the earth's weather database nor backup the governments ID card
We want you to be successful and trust that the resources we provide
enable that. However, in the extreme, if your success translates
into a significant impact on server performance and capacity we also trust
that you'll be earning a lot of money, and that you accept from the
outset - that we'll be asking you to negotiate fair and reasonable terms
for transferring to one or more dedicated servers.
This 'Red Tape' is a synopsis which could be reduced to 'Don't abuse it,
don't push it, be honest, fair, reasonable and moral.'
We do not support any kind of insulting, offensive, abusive or sectarian
We, and in consequence, you - rely on our partners, suppliers, the
good-will of the 'open-source' community and the many internet resource
providers for continued communications and interconnectivity.
Hence, sending unsolicited mail, being complicit in any hacking or virus
spreading, handling pornographic or otherwise offensive material,
intentionally infringing copyrights or partaking in any activity which
gives rise to a noteable level of reasonable complaints - is unacceptable
and will result in your site/s being de-activated.
Your 'normal' operations are likely to make use of graphics, pictures,
music & video which are all acceptable subject to it not conflicting
with the above and that it's in support of the pages on the site.
Bulk storage of music or video files for sharing or distribution other
than through conventional sales is not allowed.
Up to three backups (on the system) of your files, hosted with us would be
considered reasonable. Backups of other sites, corporate and business
systems, or other third party material are not.
Please note that whilst the systems are physically, electronically &
logically secure, this doesn't imply any level of 'guarantee' against
loss, and you should have you own 'off-line' backups.
We don't allow the use of persistent server processes, mass interactive
communication sharing or IRC (Internet Relay Chat).
Any site set up using an Add-on pack which
is not already covered by an existing account will be de-activated. A
grace period of 2 days before deletion allows for unintentional
over-subscription whilst the account is corrected by upgrade and further
