The Brody Organisation offers high data transfer. In rare cases, The Brody
Organisation may find a customer to be surpassing their limit and using
server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardise server
performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, The Brody
Organisation reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for
the consideration of all customers. For customers who share a domain, Bandwidth
Usage will be assessed across the entire domain, but individual clients
across that domain will be measured on primarily a monthly basis. Clients on
shared domains whose domain areas are seen to exceed the allocated bandwidth
amounts will also have the High Resource User Policy applied
HIGH RESOURCE USER POLICY
Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilisation.
The Brody Organisation may implement the following policy to
its sole discretion:
When a website is found to be surpassing their data transfer limit per month
on a single account and/or monopolising the resources available, the account
holder will be contacted in order to discuss the situation. If no arrangement
can be reached or the account holder cannot be contacted within 12 hours, The
Brody Organisation reserves the right to terminate the account giving one
week’s notice. If the user's site is severely affecting the performance of
the server, The Brody Organisation has the right to act immediately in order
to resume the normal operation of the network. The High Resource User Policy
also refers to other parts of the servers/network, including mail and ftp,
plus the use of processor time.
At the discretion of The Brody Organisation, customers and/or
clients who fall under the High Resource User Policy may be offered the
opportunity to upgrade their account to a higher bandwidth usage. If agreed,
the Brody Organisation will not suspend the Customer or Client account for
the duration of one week pending payment for the cost of the upgrade. Failure
to pay the upgrade costs within the allotted time will result in a suspension
of all products and services and recovery for costs plus administrative fees
at the discretion of The Brody Organisation will be taken through The Courts.
BANDWIDTH AND DISK USAGE
Customer agrees that bandwidth and disk usage shall not exceed the number of
megabytes per month for the Services ordered by Customer on the Order Form
(the "Agreed Usage"). The Brody Organisation will monitor
Customer's bandwidth and disk usage. The Brody Organisation shall have the right to take
corrective action if Customer's bandwidth or disk usage exceeds the Agreed
Usage. Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges,
disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, or termination of
this Agreement, which actions may be taken is in The Brody Organisation’s
sole and absolute discretion. If The Brody Organisation takes any corrective
action under this section, Customer shall not be entitled to a refund of any
fees paid in advance prior to such action. In the event that a customer
exceeds the included allocation, The Brody Organisation may, at its sole
discretion, collect a deposit, in an amount determined by The Brody
Organisation, against customer's credit card on file with The Brody
Organisation, or invoice the Customer direct. Failure to pay any such charges
will result in civil action for recovery without further contact with the
