Northway Mining LLC. (“Northway”) provides cryptocurrency mining hosting and related services to its clients. To protect the interests of all clients and to ensure optimal service levels, Northway has developed the following Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) as a guide to client rights and responsibilities when utilizing services offered by Northway. Use of any service offered by Northway by any client will constitute acknowledgment of and agreement to the terms outlined in this document. This AUP may be revised in part or in full at any time by Northway and notices of changes will be posted to the Northway community forums. Continued use of services offered by Northway after such changes or enhancements to the AUP have been made will constitute acceptance of any revisions to the AUP.
All services provided by Northway may be used for lawful purposes only. Northway does not monitor, edit, censor, or take responsibility for client content or communications from within the network controlled by Northway except inasmuch to determine if violations of the AUP have occurred once a suspected violation has been brought to the attention of Northway. Therefore, clients are solely responsible for the content and use of their service as provided by Northway and should ensure that such use falls within the guidelines of the AUP. Northway cannot and will not monitor, edit, censor, or otherwise interfere with information or content clients may retrieve from sources outside the Northway network even when such information is made available to clients through the use of material deliverable to any site or service maintained by Northway, such as via email. Because of this, Northway will not be responsible for injury or liability to any client resulting from communications that may be offensive, misleading, illegal, or otherwise unsuitable in the view of the client. Clients further agree to indemnify and hold harmless Northway or any of its subsidiaries from claims resulting from the use of any provided service which damages the client of any other party.
Backups are performed by Northway as a courtesy to clients; however, all clients are advised to maintain a current local copy of their files in the event backups are irretrievable for any reason. Northway will not be deemed responsible for data or other loss resulting from the unavailability of backups. Backups will not be retained for accounts that have been cancelled, unless such retention is deemed necessary by Northway. As cancellation requests are processed immediately, any required files from the affected account should be downloaded prior to the cancellation request.
The sending of unsolicited email (spamming) from a Northway server or referencing a domain hosted by Northway in any spam, whether originating from the Northway network or not, is forbidden. Northway maintains an excellent reputation as a zero-tolerance provider due to swift action on spam complaints. Complaints regarding spamming are investigated thoroughly by Northway. Should abuses be found, Northway reserves the right to immediately and without notice terminate the offending account. Sites that promote, sell, or otherwise provide access to spam ware products or email lists or products that are solely for the purpose of extraction or sale of email addresses or which are used to send bulk email are not permitted on any Northway server. Unsecured form to mail scripts, such as Matt Wright’s formmail script, are likewise prohibited as are any naming variant of generic form to mail scripts (formmail.*, Formmail.*, FormMail.*). Unsecured form to mail scripts found to exist under any client account may be deleted or renamed at the discretion of Northway.

CGI or php-based shell scripts are prohibited. This includes any script that is used for the purpose of issuing shell-level commands or which acts as a proxy for shell access via a web browser rather than the use of the embedded SSH client in the control panel or the use of a standalone SSH client. Such scripts will be deleted without notice when found. Continued use of such scripts will be grounds for account termination.
Web proxy scripts are prohibited. This includes any script, such as nph-proxy, that allows anyone to browse to a third party website from any server in the Northway network or that otherwise masks the true origination point of browsing activities by use of network information associated with Northway. Such scripts will be deleted when found. Repeated violations will result in account suspension or termination.
Use of any Northway service to make any illegal or obscene content available via transmission, storage, or display of such material is prohibited. Accounts maintaining such content are subject to suspension or termination without notice.
Any activity that infringes on copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents, software ownership, or trade secrets held by any third party entity is prohibited. Northway is required by law to remove or suspend accounts that violate copyright held by third parties when notified that such infringement exists. Accounts that continually engage in such violations are subject to termination. Material that infringes on the privacy or rights of others, or that otherwise represents a reasonable, credible threat, is prohibited. Disputes between parties where clear legal decisions cannot be determined by individual claims must be settled between those parties and valid legal documentation must be provided for action related to content on sites within the Northway network. In no instance will Northway be responsible for individual site material for which no authoritative documentation has ben provided.
Any activity not defined above but judged by Northway to be harmful to other clients or general operations of the network will be addressed on a case by case basis.
Cancellation requests must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via the client area, or via the online ticketing system. No other avenues of cancellation will be accepted. While no advance notice of cancellation is required, all fees paid for service to the point of cancellation are nonrefundable. Cancellations made within 30 days of beginning service are subject to the Northway 30-day guarantee, and will result in a refund of fees paid. All fees paid for domain registration are nonrefundable, without exception.
Accounts are payable in full at the time of account creation. Accounts for which payment by credit card is selected are subject to suspension if payment cannot be processed at the time of account creation. If payment by check or money order is selected, payment must be received within two (2) weeks of account activation or the account will be suspended without notice. New accounts that remain past due fifteen (15) days after account activation are subject to termination without notice. Any account reaching fifteen (15) days past due is subject to suspension for nonpayment. Such accounts are subject to termination after thirty (30) days in a past due state. All invoicing and payments are automatic and recurring based on the contract length specified by the client at the time of account setup or by request after setup has been completed. All invoices are due upon creation. Chargebacks issued for valid hosting fees will result in immediate account termination, without prior notice, and without exception.
