sites meet certain minimum criteria in terms of their content. For example, we
do not allow SPAM, pornography, warez, sites engaged in illegal activity or
racial hatred to name a few. In the same manner, we do not exercise editorial
control over the content of any web site, e-mail transmission or other material created or accessible over or

activities that may be damaging to the resources of both the Webnet77 and the
Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources
of the Webnet77 and the Internet are limited, and abuse of these resources by
one user has a negative impact on the entire community.
We routinely monitor the resource usage of accounts for measurements of
system utilization and the preparation of billing records. No single account may consume more than 10% of the total server resources in any one 24 hour cycle. This applies specifically to CPU usage and hard drive access. Should an account exceed these parameters, special arrangements need to be made and additional costs may apply. We will
advise you if we become aware of inappropriate use of our service.
You may not use your site to publish material, which Webnet77 determines, in
its sole discretion, to be unlawful, indecent or objectionable. For purposes of
this policy, "material" refers to all forms of communications including
narrative descriptions, pornography (including photographs, illustrations,

however, flagrant violations of the AUP will result in immediate termination of
