This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless DATACADIA.com from any claims resulting from the use of service, which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

  • pirated software

  • archives Warez sites


Traffic Usage / Bandwidth

Traffic and bandwidth are unmetered unless informed otherwise. If your account's traffic or bandwidth is metered, traffic caps and additional use charges will be stated on your invoice. These charges are not prorated, meaning that 1 MB - 1 GB will be treated and billed as the same.


We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Server Abuse

Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server or customer of DATACADIA.com is strictly prohibited. As our customer you are responsible for all your accounts. Should you violate the Terms of Services outlined within, your account will be canceled without refund.

Refusal of Service

We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion.

All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of DATACADIA.com must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.


By the Account Activation Date of each month, DATACADIA.com shall either:

(1) debit the client's credit card (when such information has been provided by the client); or

(2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. When an invoice is delivered to the client, payment shall be remitted to DATACADIA.com by no later than the specified payment due date. DATACADIA.com shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client's failure to make timely payments. You will be provided with an invoice on a annual basis. All credit cards are billed automatically on a monthly basis. It is the client's responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point we will need to be provided with another credit card account number within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, will be suspended.

Service Fees

Certain services carry a setup fee charged by DATACADIA.com to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to DATACADIA.com and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis for contracted work and annually for web hosting, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the client provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the client will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded.

Money back guarantee & refund policy

We generally do not refund canceled contracts. For example, if your contract is annual and you request a refund after two months, no refunds will be admitted. No refunds are issued for setup charges, add-on charges, domain-registrations, add-on purchases, SSL certificates or overage charges. In case of AUP violations, any and all refunds are forfeit.

Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, DATACADIA.com offers its customer (also known as "Subscribers") and their customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. DATACADIA.com respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, DATACADIA.com reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, DATACADIA.com 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 using DATACADIA.com’ services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.

One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet's openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that DATACADIA.com cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because DATACADIA.com cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, DATACADIA.com cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.

When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that DATACADIA.com does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over DATACADIA.com’ network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of DATACADIA.com, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect DATACADIA.com’ goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate DATACADIA.com policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:


Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward DATACADIA.com, but also because it can overload DATACADIA.com’ network and disrupt service to DATACADIA.com’ subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, DATACADIA.com will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMming. A $125 charge for intentionally and knowingly violating this policy will be charged to the account initiating the SPAM. Furthermore DATACADIA.com reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should DATACADIA.com choose to pursue and prosecute.

Audio/Video Streaming:

Audio/Video Streaming is not hosting friendly. As such, DATACADIA.com does not allow any streaming of audio or video content unless the stream originates from an embedded external data source. Offending accounts will be suspended without noticed or terminated.

Adult-Oriented Content:

DATACADIA.com does not allow adult content and will suspend/terminate any offending account.

Large File Policy:

DATACADIA.com is not for file hosting and distribution - as such, customers may not host any files larger than 50MB in size that are observed to be available for the sole purpose of download. Such files include but are not limited to .ISO, audio/video files, .EXE files. If you are unsure whether your file is against this policy, please e-mail

Obscene Speech or Materials:

Using DATACADIA.com’ network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available sexual exploitation content or obscene speech or material is prohibited. DATACADIA.com is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of sexual exploitation content on or being transmitted through its network.

Defamatory or Abusive Language:

Using DATACADIA.com’ network as a means to transmit or post negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language.

Forging of Headers:

Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part is not permitted.

Illegal or Unauthorized Access to Other Computers or Networks:

Accessing, illegally or without authorization, computers, accounts or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual's system (often known as "hacking") is strictly prohibited. Also, any activities that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity) are not permitted.

Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses or Other Destructive Activities:

Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service attacks are not allowed. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment are not permitted.

Facilitation a Violation of this AUP:

Advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available any software, program, product or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail bombing, denial of service attacks and piracy of software are not permitted.

Export Control Violations:

Exporting encryption software over the Internet or otherwise, to points outside Canada and the United States is prohibited.

Usenet Groups:

DATACADIA.com reserves the right not to accept postings from newsgroups where we have actual knowledge that the content of the newsgroup violates the AUP.

Other Illegal Activities:

Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including, but not limited to, false or fraudulent advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards and pirating software are strictly prohibited.

Other Activities:

Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that DATACADIA.com determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations can result in immediate account termination.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. DATACADIA.com will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that they comply with DATACADIA.com’ policy or applicable law. However, when DATACADIA.com becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action deemed appropriate by DATACADIA.com.

DATACADIA.com is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching DATACADIA.com’ facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. DATACADIA.com does not require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. DATACADIA.com reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its subscribers. Also, DATACADIA.com may take action against the DATACADIA.com' subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, DATACADIA.com anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with DATACADIA.com in any corrective or preventive action that DATACADIA.com deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of DATACADIA.com policy.

DATACADIA.com will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or receive by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. DATACADIA.com may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, DATACADIA.com may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. DATACADIA.com assumes not obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, DATACADIA.com may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect DATACADIA.com and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, DATACADIA.com will never sell information to other services or outside companies.

DATACADIA.com expects that its subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of online communications. A subscriber's failure to comply with those laws will violate DATACADIA.com policy. Finally, DATACADIA.com wishes to emphasize that subscribers indemnify DATACADIA.com for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or DATACADIA.com policy resulting in loss to DATACADIA.com or the bringing of any claim against DATACADIA.com by any third party. This means that, if DATACADIA.com is sued because of a subscriber's or customer of a subscriber's activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against DATACADIA.com, plus costs and reasonable attorney's fees.

We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including DATACADIA.com and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber's violation of this AUP should be sent to so that the issue may be resolved.
