Acceptable Use Policy & Terms
Native Design Services (NDS) provides web hosting and e-mail services to its clients. Our general policy is to act as a neutral provider of hosting services to the global Internet. Native Design Services reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by NDS, when NDS decides that the account has been inappropriately used.
Web sites are to be used by the primary owner only. Clients are not permitted to resell, store, or give away web hosting services off of their web site to other parties. Web hosting services are defined as allowing a separate, third party to host content on the owner's web site. Exceptions to this include ad banners, classified ads, and personal ads.
Domain pointers are to be used for the purpose of having more than one way to find the same site, not for the purpose of sharing an account among multiple sites. A domain pointer may not be set up to reference a subdirectory within an existing web hosting account served by NDS or any other provider. Domain pointers are not to be used as a substitute for purchasing separate accounts.
NDS reserves the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at it's sole discretion.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know as much detailed information as possible about the suspected abuse. Every complaint will be investigated.
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited e-mail including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, from an NDS server or using an e-mail address or domain that is maintained on an NDS server as reference is STRICTLY prohibited.
A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site. Users who have engaged in any UCE or spamming activity will be subject to immediate account termination or suspension without prior notification. NDS will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of these provisions.

NDS reserves the right to determine what is Abusive Net Behavior.
