For those customers who don’t like all the legal speak we have put together this quick summary of our Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy. Click on the links below for the full texts and other policies.


Surfside Web STANDS FIRMLY behind the First Amendment of the US Constitution and will not infringe upon your rights. However, we must also guarantee the rights and equal protections of everyone equally, conspiracy to commit violence and clear cases of hatred towards others is not permissible.  

Surfside Web does not tolerate SPAM or unsolicited bulk e-mail at all. Only double opt-in newsletters are acceptable and they must abide by federal and state regulations concerning e-mail communications, the UCE and the Canned SPAM Rules. The safest way to manage newsletters and transactional email is to use an outside mailing list manager. Many are available at an affordable cost.

Surfside Web will immediately disable any account that attempts to infringe upon another user’s right to uninterrupted Internet access. This includes the deliberate dispense of viruses, trojans, spyware, and DDoS programs. IRC Bots are also strictly forbidden. DDoS activity on our network will not be subject to notice and will just be GONE.

Surfside Web will disable any scripts that have the ability to bring down greatly our network performance, those that infringe upon the rights of others or those that open back doors and security holes which allow a third party to infringe upon the rights of others.

Surfside Web does not allow adult pornography sites. The only exceptions to this rule are lingerie stores doing legitimate business and if forms of genitalia are shown they must have an intercepting disclaimer page that states that the visitors must be over the age of 18 to enter. Photos showing the application of adult novelty items are not permitted. In short; be tasteful.

Surfside Web reserves the right to work directly with local and federal authorities and the Department of Homeland Security to apprehend and prosecute offenders of criminal acts especially those we have illustrated here. WE DO follow the DHS guidelines for critical infrastructure and we do monitor and report infractions. For more information on DHS strategies and recommended procedures please see DHS Critical Infrastructure and Cybersecurity.
