"If you are looking for a top of the line, attractive, meaningful, and yet user-friendly website—this is the place."


Restricted Content

Client is expected to use the Internet with respect, courtesy, and responsibility, giving due regard to the rights of other Internet users. Client is expected to use his/her account for the purposes of maintaining a website only. Common sense is the best guide as to what is considered acceptable use.

Beartooth Web Development, LLC forbids websites with adult graphic content (softcore and/or hardcore), including, but not limited to, banners advertising any adult website(s), child pornography, and distribution of adult website passwords. Clients whose accounts are found in violation of this policy may, at the discretion of Beartooth Web Development, LLC, have their account(s) terminated without notice and are subject to a maximum clean-up/disconnect fee.

Clients whose website promotes activities that violate federal, state, local laws and/or violation of U.S. export restrictions are also not welcome at Beartooth Web Development, LLC. This includes "warez" sites (freely distributing copyright programs), or sites promoting hacking and/or cracking programs. Furthermore, Beartooth Web Development, LLC prohibits websites which primarily promote PokÈmon, professional wrestling (WWF,WCW), photo archives, software distribution, anti-religious, and gaming (RGP). Websites of this nature are considered non-professional and are not welcome.

Clients whose accounts are found in violation of this policy may, at the discretion of Beartooth Web Development, LLC, have their account(s) terminated without notice and are subject to a maximum clean-up/disconnection fee. Additionally, Beartooth Web Development, LLC may contact the Software Piracy Association ("SPA") and release any information in connection with any illegal activities relating to software piracy on the Client's account.

Sites whose primary purpose is for file distribution of non-web ready (such as .zip, .tar, .rar, .exe, .mp3) or mirroring of a site are strictly prohibited.

IRC Bots, or any other automaton programs written in C, Perl or IRC-script used specifically in conjunction with IRC are not allowed. These programs tie up system resources and are in no way related to maintaining a website. Clients are not allowed to have any programs, including but not limited to, Eggdrop, or any other IRC-related programs, within their account. Client agrees not to upload the tar file for any of these programs or to execute them within their account. The first violation of this policy will result in the IRC-related program to be removed from the Client's account and Beartooth Web Development, LLC will notify the Client immediately of the violation. The second violation of this policy may, at the discretion of Beartooth Web Development, LLC, result in the Client's account(s) being terminated without notice and a maximum clean-up/disconnect fee.

Simply put, we ask that you use your account for the purposes of hosting a professional, non-adult oriented, legal website.

E-mail/Spam Policy
