Terms and Conditions:

This is the agreement between Advanced Internet Marketing (aka AIM,, AIMWEBS,, AIM webs,, AdNetMk), hereafter referred to as AIM, and Account Holder, a subscriber to AIM's internet services.
Payments are to be drawn to: Advanced Internet Marketing.

 1.) The Virtual Web Server Internet Account and related electronic services may be used for legal purposes only. Any violations consistent with existing international, federal, state and local laws will be grounds for an immediate termination of service. This includes any and all forms of gambling. Transmission, distribution or storage of any material in violation of international, federal, state and local laws is prohibited and will be grounds for an immediate termination of service. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by: copyright, trademark, patent, and/or trade secret or other intellectual property right used without proper authorization.

2.) Engaging, advertising, and/or participating in the sending of Unsolicited Email is explicitly prohibited on AIM's servers. AIM defines Unsolicited Email as using any computer or electronic device to send an unsolicited advertisement or electronic mail to an electronic mail address of an individual with whom such person lacks a preexisting and ongoing business or personal relationship unless said individual provides express invitation or consent/permission. Violators of the aforementioned policy are subject to account(s)/service(s) termination, without any refunds.

3.) The Account Holder understands that AIM's servers are not Bulk Email servers, that they are not designed for email only service and that AIM can not allow an excessive volume of mail which can hinder the performance of the server for other Account Holders.

4.) The Account Holder agrees not to transmit, distribute, store, advertise, link to, or make available any images, language, or ideas containing sexually explicit or implicit subject matter. AIM reserves the right to make a final determination in any dispute involving sexually explicit or implicit subject matter. We do not allow any illegal material to be hosted on our servers, up to and including pornographic content, pirated software (WAREZ sites), IRC bots, and MP3 distribution sites. We also forbid our servers to be used to send SPAM email. The first occurrence of a violation of this provision will result in a halt of services to the Account Holder. AIM reserves the right to halt services, for a violation of this provision, with or without notice. Any occurrence thereafter of a violation of the aforementioned provision will result in a termination of account(s)/service(s), and no refunds will be issued.

5.) Account Holder / Re-Seller shall have no power, right or authority to execute any contract on behalf of AIM or bind AIM to any agreement, matter or case, including any AIM Master Service Agreement.

6.) Fees: Payment shall be made in US dollars to AIM. There are NO monthly billing programs. All fees for servers are due in advance. Setup fees from $48 minimum to $148, are part of our fees and are not refundable. Early cancellation of an order may allow a refund in special cases. Once a virtual server is: prepared with files loaded, set up for a client, a user and password are designated and/or the ordering or transfer of a domain name is begun, there is NO refund of fees paid for the services contracted (unless the initial setup of the server fails due to DNS transfer problems). Design fees are due at 50% in advance and the balance, upon completion, within 10 days. If any fees or charges imposed by the bank for any reason result in AIM receiving less than the invoice amount, AIM will reinvoice Account Holder for the difference. If AIM does not receive payment in full of any invoice (with the exception of bank fees and charges) within 30 days, then the Account Holder accepts that AIM will suspend service(s) with the Account Holder until such time as payment is made. Payments in full of any invoice, with the exception of the aforementioned provision, not received within 30 days will result in a termination of service(s) to Account Holder. Any exception granted by AIM to this fee payment procedure shall not limit or abridge the liability or collection ability for charges due and not received, overdue or added; due to actions or requests of the account holder.

7.) The Account Holder understands that Virtual Web Server Internet accounts are provided by AIM on a shared server. Accordingly, the Account Holder's Web Site and services will be shared with other customers' Web Site and services on the same server. The Account Holder understands that poorly written cgi and perl scripts consume a vast amount of AIM's system resources. For this reason, AIM will allow the Account Holder to maintain a maximum of 1000 CPU seconds each day. This policy will be strictly monitored and enforced by AIM's system administrators. If Account Holder is found to be in violation of this provision, AIM's system administrators have the authority to shut down any and all scripts responsible for the violation. If any damages result from a violation of this provision, AIM can and will seek recovery for said damages.

8.) The Account Holder agrees that AIM servers have a monthly bandwidth limit specified. If the Account Holder exceeds this limit, he/she will be subject to a charge equivalent to the amount exceeded. The charge will based on $ 0.15 per MB over the monthly limit. Charges for exceeding bandwidth are due within 10 days of presentation of invoice. Failure to pay an invoice for more than 10 days, will result in an interruption of service(s) until the payment is received.

9.) The Account Holder understands that all accounts on AIM servers have a defined storage space amount. If the Account Holder exceeds the defined storage space limit, he/she will be notified of such occurrence. Additional disk space will be charged at the per MB Server rate, unless it is decreased upon notification. Chronic neglect of disk overage notices and failure to return disk space utilization to the defined amount, or upgrade their service, will result in an interruption of service(s).
