RootAxis Limited will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of usage limitations. At any time RootAxis Limited may move your site to a different server, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing.
RootAxis Limited does allow clients to install their own chat rooms. However, these tend to be large system hogs and may fall into the usage limitations clause. We do provide a html based cgi chatroom that runs without hindering the performance of the machine for others. You are free to run your own chat script, as long as it does not hinder server performance.
RootAxis Limited may allow programs to run continually in the background, these are considered on a one to one basis and a extra charge may be incured based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
