The Company reserves the right to keep a service deactivated until funds paid have cleared.

The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or spam over our network. Very simply this means that customers of The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in UCE. Clients of The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other networks. In addition, it is not acceptable to transmit bulk email through remote SOCKS, HTTP or other similar proxies who in turn make a SMTP connection to the destination mail servers. This technique may result in account suspension or termination. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service. In order to prevent unnecessary blacklisting due to spam we reserve the right to occasionally sample bulk email being sent from servers.

During the investigation, The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our AUP, The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer’s account. Further, The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation.

A second violation will result in an “Administrative Fee” of RM 2500 and immediate termination of your account. Users who violate this policy agree that in addition to these “Administrative” penalties, they will pay “Research Fees” not to exceed RM 600 per hour that The Malaysian DotCom Sdn Bhd personnel must spend to investigate the matter.
