Spam, Malicious Activity and Illegal Content
NK Support takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of all kinds of unsoliticed bulk ads including email spam through our equipment. Customers of NK Support may not use or permit others to use our network to send spam emails. Customers may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by spam from other networks. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service.
Users are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of any network. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability. NK Support will investigate occurrences, which may involve such violations and may involve, and cooperate with, law enforcement authorities in prosecuting users who are involved in such violations. These violations include, without limitation:

- Attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization.

- Taking any action in order to obtain services to which such user is not entitled.
All content must conform with the local law of the country where the server rented from NK Support resides. Hosting illegal content on the equpment provided by NK Support is strictly prohibited. If we are notified of such content hosted by a customer, the said customer’s account is immediately suspended for investigation. Legality of the content is solely the customer’s responsibility.
As our customers are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients, while using our servers it is advisable that customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients.
The client agrees to never contact any of NK Support’s managers, administrators, techs, or contractors for any position outside of their current employment with NK Support. You will not directly or indirectly, during this Agreement solicit, engage, employ, contract or otherwise work in any manner with any person who is employed or engaged for you.
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. In case of an overuse extra fees will be applied to the account in accordance with its package. Failure to pay will result in account suspension.
Customer agrees to pay NK Support for all charges incurred under his account, including all applicable taxes, fees and surcharges. The client authorizes NK Support to charge his designated payment method for these charges. If NK Support does not receive payment from his designated payment method, the client agrees to pay all amounts due upon demand by NK Support or its operators.
All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. It is the customers’ responsibility to inform NK Support on changes in credit card type, PayPal e-mail address or expiration date to their credit card. Subscription fees are billed once monthly. Additional invoices for package overages, such as additional bandwidth, storage space or Client Support hours, may be sent at the end of billing period if such overages took place.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes or duties imposed by governing authorities. The subscriber alone is responsible for payment of all such taxes or duties. Same applies to the commissions applied by his bank, credit card company or PayPal subscription. The net amount received to our account is credited to the client’s account with us. In case of wire transfers, the client pays all related commissions to his own bank. The amount received to our account with all fees deducted from it is considered the total payment amount.
Failure to Pay
The customer agrees to cover all additional expenses and commissions coming from their inability to pay the invoice, erratic refund or charge back requests and blocked/rejected transactions. This covers situation such as expired or blocked credit card, card transaction chargeback request by the client, insufficient amount on the PayPal account balance, etc.
If the customer believes that charges to his account by NK Support were made by mistake, he would immediately contact our billing department to clarify the issue and would not take actions that may result in additional charges, such as chargeback requests. We value every client and always clear all billing issues immediately.
NK Support may temporarily deny service or terminate the account upon the failure of the customer to pay charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve the subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges. Service will be interrupted on accounts that reach 7 days past due.
Suspension of Service or Cancellation
NK Support reserves the right to suspend access to any customer if in the judgment of the company’s system administrators the customer’s account or server is the source or target of the violation of any of the other terms of the AUP or for any other reason which the Company chooses. If inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of the customer in question will be deactivated until an investigation is complete. Prior notification to the customer is not assured. In extreme cases, law enforcement will be contacted regarding the activity. The customer will not be credited for the time the customer’s accounts or servers were suspended. NK Support reserves the right to cancel the customer’s account account if the investigation of such cases proves the client’s malicious activity on our equipment.
Cancellation has to be made by emailing sales for authorization purpose and not by informing it on live chat or any of our IM (Instant Messengers).

If service cancellation has been requested within 15 days or less before the renewal date, the recurring fees may be charged before canceling.
