Linode.com agrees to furnish services to the Subscriber, subject to the following Terms of Service. Use of Linode.com's service constitutes acceptance and agreement to Linode.com's Terms of Service.
Linode.com reserves the right to modify the Terms of Service without notice.
Spam and Unsolicited Bulk Email (UBE): Linode.com has a zero tolerance policy on spam, Junk E-mail or UBE. Spam, Junk-mail and UBE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail messages, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested the message. UBE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of Linode.com whether or not the message actually originated from our network.
Mailing Lists: Linode.com's mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list servs, or mailing services you may contract with. The policy is stated as follows: An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a targeted audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you. The list must also allow for automatic removal of recipients with non-distribution in the future.
Access to Other Computers or Networks without Authorization: Attempting unauthorized and/or illegal access of computers, networks and/or accounts not belonging to party seeking access. Any act which interferes with the services of another user or network. Any act relating to the circumvention of security measures.
Linode and the services it provides may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of United States or state regulation or law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or other intellectual property rights. Linode.com's services may not be used to facilitate infringement of these laws in any way.
Other Activities viewed as Illegal or Harmful: Engaging in illegal activities or engaging in activities harmful to the operations of Linode.com or Linode.com's customers.
Providing False Data on any Contract or Application: including fraudulent use of credit card numbers.
Linode does not prohibit the use of distributed, peer to peer network services such as Tor, nor does Linode routinely monitor the network communications of customer Linodes as a normal business practice. However, customers are responsible for the contents of network traffic exiting their Linode. Any usage that prompts the receipt of abuse complaints pertaining to violation of United States and/or international copyright law must be promptly discontinued to avoid service cancellation for violation of these terms.
Linode.com is not responsible for any additional bank fees, interest charges, finance charges, over draft charges, or other fees resulting from charges billed by Linode.com. Currency exchange settlements will be based on agreements between you and the provider of your credit card. Pro-rated credits are issued for unused services when customer retains any active service. Pro-rated refunds are issued if customer does not retain any active service and they are specifically requested via the cancellation form. All refunds are subject to a $5.00 service charge unless cancelling within the 7 day money-back guarantee period.
You may cancel the service at any time by using the "Cancel Account" link located on the "My Accounts" sub-tab of the Linode Manager. Accounts are canceled immediately after confirmation. Cancellation of service does not relieve Subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges.
