Introduction: Upon opening an account with NeironVPS, you're provided with access to a couple of different communities. The first one is a community which is formed by our network and all of our customers, and the second community is one that is massive in scale, and is made up of each and every network across the globe all connected together formulating what is known as the Internet. When an individual or company gains membership into either of these communities, they automatically are given a number of different rights and privileges, but those rights and privileges also come with a set of duties and responsibilities that need to be adhered to. In order to provide our customers with the knowledge they need to understand these specific duties and responsibilities, NeironVPS has established an Acceptable Usage Policy. The purpose of this document is to provide our users with a general understanding of the Acceptable Usage Policy as set forth by NeironVPS. Please read the following elements, as they are meant to guide users through the establishment and enforcement of our usage policies:

* Ensure that all of our customers are provided with service that is reliable.
* Ensure that our network remains secure and private, while striving to maintain the security and privacy of other networks.
* Remain in full compliance with all existing laws
* Maintain the reputation we have built as being a responsible provider of web-based services
* Encourage all individuals who are using the Internet to use it responsibly, and work to discourage activities that take away from the usability and overall value of services provided by the Internet.
* Continually work at preserving the value of resources provided by the Internet as a method for freely sharing and exchanging information as well as for that of free expression.
* Always work at maintaining and preserving the security and privacy of each and every individual user of the Internet.

It is the intent and purpose of NeironVPS to provide every one of its customers with all of the services and features that can be experienced on the Internet. Regardless of the fact that NeironVPS continues to be completely committed to all the principles regarding free speech, there are activities that can cause harm to the resources of the Internet in general and NeironVPS, and because of that, cannot be permitted just because somebody is terming it as free speech. It's a reality that there are only so many resources that are available by NeironVPS, as well as the Internet, and when any single person abuses the use of these resources, the whole community is negatively impacted because of it. It is not our policy to routinely monitor user activity on any of our VPS machines, except when it comes to the amount of server resources that any single account is using and for billing purposes. With that being said however, if any abusive use of our resources is brought to our attention, we will not hesitate to respond appropriately since we are always putting forth an effort to be a responsible part of the Internet community and to promote good citizenship. If we come across an NeironVPS account that is found to be in violation of any of our acceptable use policies, we reserve the right, and will not hesitate to use that right to terminate the service of the account holder without providing any notice, and you also agree that you will indemnify NeironVPS, as well as any of its affiliates of any liability which might result from potential claims that might be brought or threatened against you by any third parties due to content that your website contains, or for your violation of our acceptable usage policy rules. It's important to note that NeironVPS never goes out of its way to shut accounts down without advising our customers against continuing the behavior, but whenever we see a flagrant violations of our acceptable use policy, we will not hesitate to immediately terminate a user's use of our service. In the event that we fail to enforce any of our policies, regardless of the reason, this does not take away any of the rights for action to be taken from NeironVPS.com.
