Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
EuroVPS has developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement and is intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when utilizing EuroVPS's services. This AUP will be revised from time to time. A customer's use of EuroVPS's services after changes to the AUP are posted on EuroVPS's web site, http://www.eurovps.com, will constitute the customer's acceptance of any new or additional terms of the AUP that result from those changes. EuroVPS reserves the right to amend, change, or modify Terms of Service without notifying the customers. Any modifications to the 'Terms of Services' Agreement as displayed on our site will take immediate effect.
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet (known as "spamming"). It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward EuroVPS, but also because it can overload EuroVPS's network and disrupt service to EuroVPS subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, EuroVPS has the discretion to determine from all of the evidence whether the email recipients were from an "opt-in" email list. We reserve the right to terminate any account engaged in spam, while operating an open SMTP relay. Spamming violations that result in a blacklisting of an IP address, will be assessed a 75 EUR cleanup fee.

EuroVPS is required by law to remove or block access to customer content upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement. It is also EuroVPS's policy to terminate the privileges of customers who commit repeat violations of copyright laws.
