All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of APL Cloud must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers. BillingBy the Account Activation Date of each month, Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated by no later than the specified payment due date. APL Cloud 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 monthly 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 FeesCertain services carry a setup fee charged by Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, 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 offer a 30 day Money back guarantee.
Refunds: If client has retained the services for one year and has pre-paid APL Cloud for such services, refunds will be issued for any unused full month of the services, upon client's request. Therefore, if client's account is cancelled at any point during the one-year term, client will be entitled to a refund for the months remaining, after notice given by the 25th day of the preceding month.
Any account deactivated due to non-payment will require a reactivation fee of $20.00 prior to reactivation.
We DO NOT refund partial monthly fees to accounts. We require 30 days notice for a cancellation. We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion.

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Acceptable Use PolicyAs a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, Automatonics Incorporated 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. Automatonics Incorporated respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, Automatonics Incorporated reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated' 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 Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated' network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of Automatonics Incorporated, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect Automatonics Incorporated' goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated, but also because it can overload APL Cloud' network and disrupt service to Automatonics Incorporated' subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, Automatonics Incorporated will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing. A $250 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Furthermore Automatonics Incorporated reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should Automatonics Incorporated choose to pursue and prosecute.
Audio/Video Streaming is not hosting friendly. As such, Automatonics Incorporated does not allow any streaming of audio or video content. Offending accounts will be suspended without noticed or terminated. Adult-Oriented Content: APL Cloud does not allow adult content and will suspend/terminate any offending account. Large File Policy: APL Cloud is not for file hosting and distribution - as such, customers may not host any files 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 email@example.com. Obscene
Speech or Materials:
Using Automatonics Incorporated' network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited. Automatonics Incorporated is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through its network.
Defamatory or Abusive Language:
Using Automatonics Incorporated' 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, to mask the originator of the message. 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"). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity). 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. 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. 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. Export Control Violations:
Exporting encryption software over the Internet or otherwise, to points outside the United States. Usenet Groups:
APL Cloud 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, advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards and pirating software. Other Activities: Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Automatonics Incorporated determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.
As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. APL Cloud will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that the comply with Automatonics Incorporated' policy or applicable law. However, when Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated.
APL Cloud is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching APL Cloud' facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. Automatonics Incorporated does not require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. Automatonics Incorporated reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its subscribers. Also, Automatonics Incorporated may take action against the Automatonics Incorporated' subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, Automatonics Incorporated anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with Automatonics Incorporated in any corrective or preventive action that Automatonics Incorporated deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of Automatonics Incorporated policy.
APL Cloud 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. Automatonics Incorporated may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, Automatonics Incorporated 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. Automatonics Incorporated 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, Automatonics Incorporated may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect Automatonics Incorporated and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, Automatonics Incorporated will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
APL Cloud 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 Automatonics Incorporated policy. Finally, Automatonics Incorporated wishes to emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify Automatonics Incorporated for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or Automatonics Incorporated policy resulting in loss to Automatonics Incorporated or the bringing of any claim against Automatonics Incorporated by any third party. This means that, if Automatonics Incorporated 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 Automatonics Incorporated, plus costs and reasonable attorney's fees.
We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including Automatonics Incorporated and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber's violation of this AUP should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
