Wai Wah System will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Wai Wah System will monitor the customer's disk usage and if it exceeds the usage agreed upon, Wai Wah System shall have the right to take corrective actions. Such corrective actions may include assessment of additional charges or suspension of service.
Wai Wah System offers an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee on hosting services. If the customer wishes to cancel a hosting account within the initial 30-day period for any reason, he/she has to notify Wai Wah System via e-mail (email@example.com), and the payment will be promptly refunded. Since all .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz and .info domains registered through our services cannot be refunded, they will be subject to a HK$78.00 annual domain registration fee. Therefore, if the customer purchased a hosting account with a domain registration, the domain registration fee will be deducted from the refund amount. As the customer is the sole owner of the registered domain name, arrangements can be made to transfer its registration to another provider.
Wai Wah System does not offer any partial or prorated refunds after the initial 30-day money-back guarantee period.
If a customer disputes a setup / renewal charge for any account, Wai Wah System will not re-activate the service, unless the customer covers all fees involved, including the chargeback fee and any other transaction fees.
Wai Wah System does not renew accounts automatically. For the customer's convenience, Wai Wah System will send a renewal reminder to the contact email address on file for the corresponding hosting account. The customer is ultimately responsible for renewing the hosting account through one of the options given by Wai Wah System.
Customers are not allowed to open a second hosting account for a domain that is already hosted through Wai Wah System. If the customer wants to continue hosting the specified domain with Wai Wah System, he/she needs to renew the account using one of the renewal options given by Wai Wah System.
Accounts terminated due to policy violations will not be refunded.
Wai Wah System registers customer domains at the ICANN accredited registrar Enom Inc. Therefore, all domains registered through Wai Wah System are a subject of the Domain Registration Agreement of Enom Inc.
If you register domain(s) with Wai Wah System, or transfer an existing domain registration, you must be acquainted with the Registration Agreement of Enom Inc.: http://www.enom.com/terms/agreement.asp
In case of ownership dispute, Wai Wah System reserves the right to be the sole decision maker in settling the dispute. There are several guidelines, based on which Wai Wah System will decide who is the rightful owner of the disputed hosting account or domain name:
By default, Wai Wah System will grant ownership to the person, who paid for the hosting account. If the purchase was made by credit card or PayPal, the holder of the respective credit card or PayPal account will be considered the owner. If the purchase was made by Western Union, bank transfer, or some other similar way, the respective sender of the funds covering the purchase of the account will be considered the owner. Wai Wah System reserves the right to confirm the identity of the owner by contacting him/her by e-mail or telephone, in the same order of preference.
If the identity of the credit card holder or the sender of the funds as discussed above cannot be confirmed, Wai Wah System will attempt to determine the owner in other ways, which include but are not limited to investigation of log files, investigation of the content hosted under the respective hosting account or domain name, and investigation of the sequence of annual payments for the disputed service.
In case of death or serious disability of the original owner, that prevents him/her from continuing to manage the hosting account or the domain name purchased, Wai Wah System may grant ownership to another person or organization, if enough proof is presented about the original owner's condition, and based solely upon the investigation that Wai Wah System will undertake about this issue.
Wai Wah System will consider a court decision overruling in case of ownership dispute, and will always comply with such a decision.
By registering/transferring a domain at Wai Wah System, you confirm that you have read and you agree with the Registration Agreement of Enom Inc.
In case the customer has lost the hosting account or domain name login information, he/she can request it to be sent to the contact e-mail address for the respective service.
If the contact e-mail address is outdated or incorrect, the customer should contact firstname.lastname@example.org, who will conduct an investigation of the issue. In this case, the dispute resolution policy may be applied.
Accounts that reach their monthly traffic limit may be a subject of automatic site suspension. Also, any accumulated traffic over the monthly limit will be charged additionally, in accordance with the characteristics of the plan purchased. If a site is suspended under this provision, and the hosting account is in good standing, the site will be enabled on the first date of the next month, when the traffic counter is reset. In case of failure to cover fees incurred by traffic overusage, Wai Wah System reserves the right to take corrective actions such as full suspension of the hosting account. In case Wai Wah System takes corrective actions under this provision, the customer shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance.
Running and linking to IRC servers or IRC bots and clients such as Eggdrop, BitchX, ircii, etc., is strictly prohibited.
Programs running in the background are not allowed.
To maintain the integrity of our shared hosting services, we have several special per-user resource limits in place. These include, but are not limited to:
- Memory limitations: Customers using shared hosting services will be able to use only a certain portion of the total available memory on the server.
- CPU usage limitations: Scripts that take too much real CPU time will be terminated.
- Simultaneous script execution limitations: Customers will be able to run only a certain amount of CGI scripts simultaneously. Whenever this limitation is triggered, execution of subsequent CGI script requests via the web will produce an error message.
- MySQL disk usage limitations: In cases, in which the integrity of the MySQL service is endangered, the MySQL disk usage of customer accounts may be limited. No limits will be applied to accounts with MySQL disk usage below 3GB.
- Number of inodes limitation: The total number of files and folders on a single hosting account should not exceed 500,000.
- MySQL connections limit: Each MySQL user cannot exceed a certain number of connections to the MySQL server.
Wai Wah System reserves the right to alter the above limitations and to place additional limits without prior notice if an account endangers the stability or the performance of the hosting server due to intensive resource usage. The additional limits may include, but are not limited to MySQL, memory and CPU usage limitations, and stopping access to directories.
Each hosting account on Wai Wah System's servers is meant to be used for one domain, as well as a number of parked domains, according to the hosting plan. Parked domains are full aliases of the main domain – they display the same site content and share the same mailboxes. Pointing parked domains to subfolders or subdomains on the account through .htaccess files or other means is not allowed.
We do not allow running of proxy software on our servers. Sites offering shortening URL services are not allowed as well.
Violation of indecency and obscenity laws can result in criminal penalties.
Materials, accessible to the customer through Wai Wah System's services, may be subject to protection under the United States or other copyright laws, or laws protecting trademarks, trade secrets or proprietary information. Except when exclusively permitted by the owner of such rights, the customer may not use Wai Wah System's services in a manner that would infringe, violate, dilute or misappropriate any such rights, with respect to any material, which the customer accesses or receives through Wai Wah System's network. If the customer uses a domain name in connection with Wai Wah System's service, he/she may not use that domain name in violation of any third party trademark, service mark, or similar rights.
Customers may not use Wai Wah System's network in an attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network or account. This includes but is not limited to: accessing data not intended for the customer, logging into a server or account the customer is not exclusively authorized to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks in search of weaknesses, or violation of any other organization's security policy. Customers may not attempt to interfere or deny service to any user, host or network. This includes, but is not limited to: flooding, mail bombing or other deliberate attempts to overload or crash a host or network. Wai Wah System will fully cooperate with investigations of violations of systems or network security. This also includes cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. Users who violate system or network security may incur criminal or civil liability.
The customer may not host material that is:
- threatening or obscene;
- offensive to any person or group. This includes but is not limited to prejudice, racism, intolerance, hatred, and harassment; expressions that are by nature libelous, defamatory, and offensive to or disrespectful of ethnic, racial, religious, or other groups;
- harmful to minors;
- likely to cause damage to reputation of third parties.
Note: Defamatory speech distributed over the Internet can result in civil liability for the defamer.
The customer may not use Wai Wah System's network, Wai Wah System's equipment or Wai Wah System's e-mail service in connection with the transmission of spam, flames, mail bombs, or similar unsolicited e-mail messages. The customer's domain may not be referenced as originator, intermediary or reply-to address in any of the above. This prohibition fully extends to sending of unsolicited mailings from another service that in any way mentions your domain name or implicates the use of the Wai Wah System's network, Wai Wah System's equipment or Wai Wah System's e-mail services. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter, or if it is sent to a recipient without his/her prior consent. For purposes of this provision, merely making one's e-mail address accessible to the public will not constitute a request or invitation to receive messages.
In case sufficient evidence is presented about any violation of this provision, Wai Wah System reserves the right to disable the customer's account without prior notice.
Any attempt to undermine, slander, libel, threaten or cause harm to Wai Wah System's customers, employees and property, or to the company directly, is grounds for immediate termination without refund. In addition, any such attempts will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Wai Wah System, at its sole discretion, may change these terms and conditions at any time. By using Wai Wah System's services the user agrees that Wai Wah System may: (1) revise these terms and conditions; and (2) change the services provided. Any such revision or change will be binding and effective immediately on posting of the revised terms or change to the service(s) on Wai Wah System's web site, or on notification to the customer by e-mail. The customer agrees to review Wai Wah System's web site, including these terms, periodically to be aware of any such revisions.

Customers are responsible for keeping their applications up-to-date, checking for security issues with the application vendor, and updating to the latest secure version that is available. In the event that an insecure application is installed on the hosting account of the customer, Wai Wah System reserves the right to disable access to it, or, if deemed necessary, to the hosting account in its entirety. This will be with the exclusive purpose of preventing damage to the customer and to the other customers hosted on the same server, and may be done with or (in case of emergency) without prior notice.
Wai Wah System reserves the right at its sole discretion to refuse or cancel service. Violation of any of Wai Wah System's Terms could result in a warning, suspension, or account termination. Submitting fake personal information can also be grounds for suspension or termination.
