Fair Use Policy

The use of WebSlice Limited’s products and services are governed by a Fair Use Policy, stated here, which covers the fair use of bandwidth and other resources on shared and reseller hosting plans, where there is an indication of “unmetered” data transfer.

1.0 Bandwidth (data transfer)

WebSlice provides unmetered data on shared/reseller hosting and colocation packages which offer generous fair use data transfer.  Data transfer covers bandwidth both Nationally (New Zealand), and International data per month.  This unmetered bandwidth provides customers with up to 1TB of data transfer per month as they wish to use without any additional charge.  Customers may use this data for any purpose other than those unacceptable as stated in the Acceptable Use Policy.  Customers will receive a notice warning upon reaching 80% of this limit.,  Usage beyond this limit may incur a charge of $100 per 1TB of data transferred (pro-rated to usage).

Should WebSlice Limited deem a customer’s account as exceeding fair use bandwidth consumption which causes interference with other users, WebSlice will notify the customer and allow the customer to remedy the problem.  However, should a customers’ bandwidth usage be significantly greater than fair use, WebSlice reserves the right to suspend or throttle the customers account where appropriate.  WebSlice will discuss available options that could provide better service for the customer.

2.0 Other Resources

WebSlice provides unlimited Email accounts and MySQL databases on its reseller hosting plans. This provides our customers with the choice and control over the amount they provide to their own hosting clients. Customers may use these features as they like but must stay within reasonable standards of fair use. Should Webslice find that a customer’s account is abusing this feature, WebSlice will notify the customer and allow the customer to remedy the problem. If the customer’s account continues to exceed fair use, WebSlice reserves the right to suspend the customer’s account and discuss a more suitable option that would provide a better service for the customer.

3.0 General

WebSlice reserves the right to add or modify the terms presented here. On this website, the terms bandwidth and data transfer are used interchangeably.
