ViUX Hosting does NOT permit adult content websites on our servers or network. The following is an excerpt taken from our Terms of Service (ToS), which can be found at: http://www.viux.com/ViUX/Legal/TermsofServiceToS.aspx.
IV. Prohibition of Adult Content:
Subscribers of ViUX's services are prohibited from storing, posting, or transmitting adult content, or links to adult content, through the subscribed service. All material of pornographic nature is considered adult content. Online image galleries whose primary purpose is the public display of fine art or artistic mediums are not considered to be adult content; however ViUX reserves the right to make the sole determination of content that is deemed "adult" in nature.
As stated within our ToS, we reserve the sole right of determination as to what content / practices are in violation of this (and all other) provisions of our ToS.
There are many reasons for our decision to NOT allow adult content to be served from our network. Among these reasons are: the increased security risks due to hackers attempting to gain free access to such sites; the dramatic increase of bandwidth usage caused by such sites; as well as, the increased likelihood of our network being blocked by other ISPs due to the common (Spam) marketing practices used by such sites.
There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy. Sites found to be in violation of this policy will be terminated immediately without refund. If you think that (or wonder if) your website falls under this policy as one that would be considered to be "adult content", then it almost certainly is. However, if you wish to have a website reviewed in this regard prior to your ordering a hosting account, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with full details and the URL / Address at which it can be seen.
