Legal Compliance and Prohibited Activities:

The use of our Services must be in strict adherence to all applicable laws and regulations. This includes refraining from engaging in activities such as violating intellectual property laws (including copyright, patent, trademark, and trade secret laws), distributing illegal content such as child pornography or content related to non-consensual acts, illegal gambling, defamation or fraud, and any activities that involve hacking or spreading harmful code. Your Website Admin firmly believes in discontinuing services for users who repeatedly infringe on intellectual property rights. Additionally, the Services must not be utilized for content that could incite violence, support sex trafficking, contain hate speech or harassment, invade privacy, support terrorism or illegal arms and narcotics trafficking, or cause retaliation against our network, employees, or infrastructure, including denial of service attacks. Use of the Services must also comply with the export laws and sanctions of both the United States and your jurisdiction. Furthermore, individuals or entities associated with illegal gambling, terrorism, narcotics, arms trafficking, or the creation or distribution of weapons of mass destruction are strictly prohibited from using the Services.

Usage in High-Risk Situations:

The Services should not be used in scenarios where their failure could lead to death or serious physical harm.

Anti-Spam Policy:

Responsible email transmission is a requirement when using the Services. Engaging in spam activities, as defined by the latest Federal Trade Commission guidelines under the CAN-SPAM Act (or equivalent laws for international users), is strictly prohibited and could result in the termination of your account. To maintain network stability, Your Website Admin may limit the number of emails sent from an account if it is deemed to compromise network integrity. In cases of spam, a charge of $500 per incident is established as a reasonable estimate for damages incurred, not as a penalty.

Regulated and Sensitive Information.

It is possible to run an ecommerce site on our platform, provided that you follow some best practices that prevent credit card information from being processed or stored on our platform. For more information on those best practices, please read this support article. You are not permitted to use or cause the Services to store or process sensitive or otherwise regulated health or financial information, including Protected Health Information (as that term is defined under HIPAA), cardholder data protected under PCI DSS regulations (such as credit or debit card data), or other financial data (including any financial account details). You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any liabilities arising from your violation of this restriction.

Overburdening Resources.

You may not interfere with our business or our ability to provide services to other customers, nor take any action nor make any use of the Services that places excessive burdens on the network or systems used to provide such services. Specifically, you may not use or provide open proxies or Internet Relay Chat or use the Services for video streaming. If your use of the Services materially exceeds the use by similarly situated customers, we may offer to move you to a different plan or charge you for the additional use. If you refuse, we may place restrictions on your use of the Services. You may not perform any vulnerability or penetration testing of WP Engine’s network or systems, including your own hosted environment, without our prior written approval.

Security Requirements.

You must take reasonable security precautions in connection with your use of the Services. You are responsible for the actions and omissions of your Authorized Users and anyone to whom you provide access to the Services or the content you create using the Services.
