  5. IRC bots, floods, or DCC (sending-receiving of files over IRC) using any HBW server. Any user account found to be the cause of the "" domain being banned from any IRC channel or host will be terminated. 

  6. Use of unauthorized software from your HBW web page account. If you are unsure if it is allowed, ask. Use of any program designed to run as a server (does not require you to be logged in) is prohibited. 

  7. Distribution or storage of illegal or pirated software, movies, or music with/from your HBW account. 

  8. Non-payment of user fees, including declined credit cards or returned checks.

    1. First Violation of any policy: User will be warned via email of violation, and required to cease such activity immediately. 

    2. Second Violation of any policy (not limited to a repeat of the first violation): User's account access will be suspended. It is the user's responsibility to contact HBW for remedy. User's account will be reactivated at the discretion of HBW Management or System Administration staff.

  2. Non-payment of account fees by due date will result in immediate suspension of account. User is still responsible for fees while account is suspended, as suspension is NOT equivalent to account cancellation. 

  1. HBW will attempt to provide the highest quality and reliability of service, but service is not guaranteed. Loss of data or service due to hardware, software, or other failure does not give the user the right to compensation, financial or otherwise. 

  2. All rates and access policies are subject to change at any time. Users will be given 30 days notice of change in user fees. Access policies are subject to change without notice, and take effect upon announcement. 

  3. Customer Equipment: The customer understands that the use of routers is permitted, but they are not the responsibility of HBW to maintain. HBW  does offer support for such devices with the understanding that said support is not included as part of the internet service.

The customer further acknowledges and understands that any damage to or loss of equipment in their possession, is solely the responsibility of the customer. HBW is NOT responsible for damage due to lightning strikes, or other acts of nature, power surges/outages, vandalism or any other causes. HBW will make reasonable efforts to restore power as quickly as possible in the event of power outages.

HBW  highly recommends the use of a UPS (Un-interruptible Power Supply) to protect all equipment from electrical spikes/surges coming from the customers AC power. A UPS is generally available at any location that sells computer equipment. Always install and keep up to date virus protection.
