In these cases the forwarding of information is carried out according to the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We restrict the information which is passed on to the barest minimum.

1) Backup and Data Loss

Your use of this service is at your sole risk. rawvps.com is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backup of files and data stored on rawvps.com servers. Any reported network issue or server fail/upgrade/downgrade will result in server reinstall/redeploy.

2) Uptime Guarantee

Approval of any credit is at the discretion of rawvps.com dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please contact [email protected] with proper justification. All requests must be made in writing via email. VPS servers are covered by a network guarantee in which the credit is prorated for the amount of time the server is down, which is not related to our uptime guarantee.

3) Resource Usage Limits

VPS accounts may not:
a) exceed a 15 minute load average greater than two (2) times the amount of CPU cores given.
b) run public IRCd's or malicious bots.
c) run any type of BitTorrent client or tracker that links to or downloads illegal content.
d) use an Open/Public proxy, or utilize a proxy to access illegal/malicious content.
e) use I/O intensive applications which adversely affect normal server operations.
Shared/Reseller accounts may not:
a) Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
b) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD. 
c) Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
d) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
e) Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers. 
f) Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
g) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc 
h) Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
i) Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
j) When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php")
k) To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
l) Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.
m) Torrents allowed only for personal use and only if download - ratio 1:0. Only download.

Those who don't respect point 3) 'Resource Usage Limits' will have their account terminated with no refund.
