POLICY AND SERVICE GUIDELINES
We want to provide the best possible service to our customers and to do so, we have to set forth some guidelines for everyone to follow.

Explicit, pornography and sex-related merchandising and material is prohibited on all services provided and sites hosted or designed by GenesisPro Designs.

If you host non-adult related content with us and then host adult related sites somewhere else, this is also prohibited and we can not allow someone to host on our server that would host pornography elsewhere. If we find out that you are hosting adult material elsewhere, we have cause to remove your site (even if it does not have adult material on it). GenesisPro Designs will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision.
If pornography is found on our server, the offending domain will be deleted immediately with no warning and no refunds of money will be given. NO links to any pornography or sex related sites are tolerated and your site will immediately be removed without refund. GenesisPro Designs will not be associated with any content of the sort.

Refund requests after 30 days may be refunded on a prorated basis of any unused time.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you’ve had an account with us before, cancelled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund or if you have opened a second account with us.
MAILING POLICY AND LIMITS
1. Anytime you’re sending a message no matter how large your e-mail list is you must throttle it. We recommend you throttle it to at the very least sending 1 email every 6 seconds. If the mailing list software you’re using does not allow you to throttle you must switch to something else. We recommend php list which can be found in your control panel under Fantastico. If you do not throttle and you try sending let’s say 500 emails the server will try sending all 500 in 1 second which is not possible. This will cause the server load to go very high and for the entire server to be sluggish until this process is completed. It is our job to keep the server up and running without being sluggish. Anyone who causes the servers load to go high will be suspended and the process will be terminated. If you choose not to throttle you will most likely be suspended for crashing the server.
2. Any mailing list over 900 emails is only allowed to be sent to during off-peak times to prevent high server loads. Off peak times qualify as all day Saturday and Sunday, and 1am to 8am central standard time M-F.
3. You are not allowed to mail to a mailing list you were given or purchased. This is spamming because they never agreed to you personally sending them mail. It will be recognized as spam and will result in termination of the offending account.
4. Any unsolicited e-mail being sent will result in termination of the offending account. We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail.
