Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due on the 10th day following invoice date ( invoice due date ), but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle. All credit cards which are setup for automatically renewal will be billed automatically via a third-party billing gateway, such as PayPal, no credit card info is stored on a GameSagas Server.

Acceptable Use Policy
Revision date: May 1, 2018
As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, GameSagas, LLC (Referred to as "GameSagas") offers its customer (also referred to as "Subscribers") and their customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. GameSagas respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, GameSagas reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, GameSagas has developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement, and is intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when using GameSagas' services. This AUP will be revised from time to time.
One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet's openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that GameSagas cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because GameSagas cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, GameSagas cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.
When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that GameSagas does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over GameSagas' network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of GameSagas, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect GameSagas' goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate GameSagas policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward GameSagas, but also because it can overload GameSagas' network and disrupt service to GameSagas' subscribers. You may not send any unsolicited emails, either bulk or individually, to any person who has indicated that they do not wish to receive it. You must comply with the rules of any other network you access or participate in using the GameSagas hosting services. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, GameSagas will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing. A $50 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Furthermore GameSagas reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should GameSagas choose to pursue and prosecute.
GameSagas does not allow adult content and will suspend/terminate any offending account.

Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity).
Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses or Other Destructive Activities:
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. GameSagas will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that they comply with GameSagas' policy or applicable law. However, when GameSagas becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action deemed appropriate by GameSagas.
GameSagas is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching GameSagas' facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. GameSagas does not require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. GameSagas reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its subscribers. Also, GameSagas may take action against the GameSagas' subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, GameSagas anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with GameSagas in any corrective or preventive action that GameSagas deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of GameSagas policy.
GameSagas will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or receive by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. GameSagas may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, GameSagas may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. GameSagas assumes no obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, GameSagas may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect GameSagas and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, GameSagas will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
GameSagas expects that its subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of online communications. A subscriber's failure to comply with those laws will violate GameSagas policy. Finally, GameSagas wishes to emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify GameSagas for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or GameSagas policy resulting in loss to GameSagas or the bringing of any claim against GameSagas by any third party. This means that, if GameSagas is sued because of a subscriber's or customer of a subscriber's activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against GameSagas, plus costs and reasonable attorney's fees.
We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including GameSagas and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber's violation of this AUP should be sent to abuse[@]gamesagas.net.
