Acceptable Use Policy

Our Acceptable Use Policy is written to help keep the Internet safe.

This acceptable use policy is designed to help protect Faelix, our customers and the Internet community in general from irresponsible or, in some cases, illegal activities. Below is a non-exclusive list of actions which are prohibited. We reserves the right to modify this policy at any time, effective upon posting on this page.

You must comply with the applicable law when using our services. Do not illegally transit, distribute or store any data using our services. This includes, without limitation, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right used without proper authorization, and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws.

No Spam

Faelix is a strong supporter of anti-spam efforts. We have contributed to several initiatives, for example Project Honey Pot.

We do not permit our network to be used for the transport or delivery of unsolicited marketing email.

No Hate

In line with our ethical charter we do not permit the use of our hosting services to further prejudices, hatred, or directed abuse.

Network Monitoring

Faelix does not perform any surveillance on customers’ servers or their network traffic. Faelix does not have any third party surveillance within its network. However, we do monitor the state of our network for abnormal patterns of traffic, or sudden changes in system load. We do this to try to nip any problems in the bud.

Contacting Us

We’re not perfect — nobody is — so we promise to respond to abuse reports from other ISPs, security researchers, our customers, and anybody else should they spot something we haven’t. Please send an email to abuse@faelix.net.

If you need to send something particularly sensitive, and your email server supports it, abuse@secure.faelix.net will only accept email via high security TLS ciphersuites (in addition to our own hosted email services, Gmail works well).

We aim to respond to urgent requests within 24 hours.
