Although we may provide some opportunity to rectify spam problems that are not intentional on the part of the customer, ultimately, every customer is responsible for the activity that occurs via the services that they are paying for. Thus, customers who receive an occasional spam complaint but who do not appear to be knowingly sending spam, may be given notice to correct the issue, but repeated offenses may be grounds for service suspension. During any notice period given (if any), steps may be taken by LowEndViet as necessary to stop spam from being sent by the customer’s services, including temporarily suspending service, firewalling certain traffic, or other appropriate means. Customers who are, as determined by LowEndViet, knowingly sending spam may have their service permanently suspended without refund. Operating websites or services on the LowEndViet network, that are being or have been advertised in spam, are also not allowed, and are subject to the same policies as applied to services used to send spam. If customer’s improper actions or inactions are the cause of LowEndViet ip space being listed in any spam blacklist or database, that customer may be permanently suspended without refund, at the sole discretion of LowEndViet.
Due to network bandwidth hogging, we only allow torrent to be downloaded, not uploaded. After finishing downloading the torrent, you have to stop seeding.
6.4. Fair-usage policy
Our unmetered/unlimited VPS plans are designed to serve a normal and ordinary purpose. If you use non-sense bandwidth that makes the system unstable, which is determined by LowEndViet, such as max out the network port 24/7, seeding torrent, your service may be suspended without refund.
