Orcs.biz is a community, and communities have roolz. In addition to our roolz, we've employed Alvin the Liche, who has provided this legal disclaimer and limitation of liability to protect us:

Use of the ORCS.BIZ website and its services are subject to the following Terms of Use Agreement ("TOU"):

The website owners (referred to here collectively as "ORCS.BIZ", "the Company", "the Website", or "Provider" or "the Service") reserves the right to update the TOU at any time without notice. By using this website, and our other services, you acknowledge and agree to these limitations as set forth.

DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES: ORCS.BIZ provides you with access to a variety of resources ("Services") including general information, message and/or communication facilities, downloads, access to shell accounts, and calendars, etc. and may include a Members Only section that can be accessed only by ORCS.BIZ staff and members. The Services, including any updates, enhancements, new features, and/or the addition of any new web properties, are subject to the TOU.

USE OF CONTENT: Use of ORCS.BIZ content (documents, whitepapers, graphics, logos, software, forums, polls, etc.) is for informational and non-commercial or personal use only. You may not modify any content, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, post on any network, broadcast in any media or sell any information, software, products or services obtained from the Services unless expressly permitted by ORCS.BIZ. Elements of ORCS.BIZ websites are protected by trade dress, trademark, unfair competition, and other laws and may not be copied or imitated in whole or in part. Content other than that belonging to ORCS.BIZ is licensed or otherwise published by ORCS.BIZ with the permission of the owner of the material. All rights in such materials are reserved to the respective owners.

DMCA COMPLIANCE: If you discover content on ORCS.BIZ for which you are the owner or authorized representative, can prove that, and wish to have the content removed, write us at this support page. We have no problem taking the content down. We believe that the content we have on this site is content for which we have permission to provide. However, ORCS.BIZ hosts a large number of files from a wide array of sources, therefore sometimes mistakes are made or users with malicious intent upload material that is otherwise restricted by copyright. We do not sell or market advertising alongside our videos, therefore ORCS.BIZ does not profit from the display of your material directly, however third-parties who use our site and use our content linking features may have inadvertently and indirectly profited from your material. You may, if you wish, contact those individuals directly. Given the current legal climate, it is probably best if you just request us to remove the content from ORCS.BIZ and thereby any third-parties using our service who are also creating websites and other materials connected to this service will no longer have access to the content. We encourage you to contact us, rather than filing a formal claim, as we wish to quickly remove any infringing material from our services. When you contact us, please provide us with the file or project URL, relevant username, name of the content, a brief description of the content, and verifiable proof of ownership. We cannot guarantee an immediate response, however we can estimate a timeframe for removal to be within 1-30 days once we have verified the authenticity of your claim. Happy hunting.

LIMITS OF LIABILITY: ORCS.BIZ makes no warranties or representations of any kind that the services provided by this website or any linked site will be uninterrupted, error-free, or that the site or the server that hosts the site are free from viruses or other forms of harmful computer code. All such information is provided "as is," and with specific disclaimer of any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, or non-infringement. In no event shall ORCS.BIZ, its agents, or anyone else who has been involved in the creation, production, or delivery of these pages, be liable for any direct, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from the use of this website or any linked site. ORCS.BIZ does not guarantee service in all areas.

With respect to goods or services purchased directly from ORCS.BIZ through the website, ORCS.BIZ's liability, in any case, is expressly limited to replacement of defective goods, or the repayment or crediting to you an amount equal to the purchase price of the goods, if ORCS.BIZ so chooses. ORCS.BIZ service accounts ("Shell Accounts") fees are non-refundable. ORCS.BIZ reserves the right to hold you in binding arbitration with respect to other agreements aside from this TOU. This clause is not extended to ORCS.BIZ partners, affliates or customers.

THIRD-PARTY SITES: ORCS.BIZ may contain links to third party's websites or advertisement to third parties. The fact that such links and advertisements are posted and presented on the Website is not an endorsement or representation of any kind of those websites or their policies and practices. Such websites are not being operated and/or monitored by the Company and therefore the Company does not assume any responsibility in any way for the policies, accuracy, usefulness, safety and practices of any such third party, and encourage you to review the terms and policies of such linked websites before using them. Moreover, The Company takes no responsibility for any goods or Services provided by third party advertisers. The Company will not be a party to or in any way be responsible for monitoring any transaction between you and any third party advertisers. You hereby waive any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against ORCS.BIZ with respect thereto, and agree to indemnify and hold ORCS.BIZ, its group companies, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, partners or anybody else on its behalf, harmless to the fullest extent allowed by law, regarding all matters related to your use of ORCS.BIZ. Nevertheless, you are encouraged to report all misuse of the Website and its Services to ORCS.BIZ.

FRANCHISE RULE: With respect to contracted offerings for non-employment compensation offered by ORCS.BIZ (such as the "Work with ORCS.BIZ" program), ORCS.BIZ makes no guarantee of income from any of its holdings, services, partnerships or offerings. This is in compliance with FTC cautionary statement regulation. ORCS.BIZ's offerings for reselling, contracted sales or impromptu sales opportunities such as through partnerships or referrals programs, do not guarantee any income from the sale of any ORCS.BIZ products or services, in any program or agreement offered by ORCS.BIZ, unless expressly permitted by ORCS.BIZ in writing.

EXTERNAL LINKS: Links to other websites do not imply an endorsement of the materials disseminated at those websites, nor does the existence of a link to another site imply that the organization or person publishing at that site endorses any of the materials at this site. Links to other websites are provided by ORCS.BIZ as a convenience to its users. ORCS.BIZ is not responsible for the materials contained at any website linked to this site.

UNLAWFUL OR PROHIBITED USE: As a condition of your use of the Services, you will not use the Services for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these terms, conditions, and notices. You may not use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any ORCS.BIZ website, or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Services. You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any Services, computer systems or networks connected to any ORCS.BIZ server or to any of the Services, through hacking, password mining or any other means. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through the Services.

USE OF COMMUNICATION AND LINUX SHELL AND HOSTING SERVICES:

The Communication Services may contain forums, calendars, IRC or other chat program channels, website hosting areas, public channels, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to communicate with you. You agree to use the communication services only to view and post messages and material that are proper and, when applicable, related to the particular communication service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that you will not:

1. Use the Communication Services in connection with surveys, contests, pyramid schemes, chain letters, junk email, spamming or any duplicative or unsolicited messages (commercial or otherwise).

2. Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services. This clause does not cover content that you are liable for, on a website you own, hosted by ORCS.BIZ.

3. Publish, post, distribute or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, name, material or information. This includes defamatory non-parody and child pornography.

4. Use any material or information, including images or photographs, which are made available through the Services in any manner that infringes any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other proprietary right of any party. This includes links to sites or files of such nature.

5. Provide links to files that contain viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer or property of another.

6. Download any file posted by another user of a Service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally reproduced, displayed, performed, and/or distributed in such manner.

7. Falsify or delete any copyright management information, such as author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a file that is uploaded.

ORCS.BIZ reserves the right to review materials posted to the Communication Services and to remove any materials at its sole discretion. ORCS.BIZ reserves the right to terminate access to any or all of the Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever. Always use caution when giving out any personally identifiable information in any Services. ORCS.BIZ does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Services and, therefore, ORCS.BIZ specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Services.

USE OF SHELL ACCOUNTS:

ORCS.BIZ does not guarantee uptime, reliability or anything else. If you are attempting to conduct business via a website hosted on ORCS.BIZ, ORCS.BIZ is not responsible to pay compensatory damages due to the site being down, not accessible or otherwise offline. ORCS.BIZ does not offer any warranty, backup services, reliabilty clauses, and does not assert that anything will work. In fact, ORCS.BIZ assumes no liability and expresses absolutely no warranty for its software, services, etc.

ORCS.BIZ provides shell accounts to users for a small donation ($1/month) or slightly larger donations (see offers section) and must maintain its services such that all users have access. If a user abuses an account, such abuse being defined as making it impossible to connect to, download information from, access, or enjoy the services for other users, then a user will receive reprimands, limitations or have their account restricted or terminated. In most cases, this does not happen, but any illegal use of an account, or any intentional compromising of activity, will result in a user being banned or otherwise banished from the services without a refund. It is up to the sole discretion of the owners of ORCS.BIZ whether or not a particular user is abusing their account, however abuse as we define it includes use of too many networking ports, disk space or intentionally attempting to damage or otherwise intentionally (or unintentionally) bring down our services.

NO HACKING, PHRACKING, BOTTING, DDOS ORIGINATION, PIRACY, CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, OR ILLICIT MATERIAL STORAGE OR SHARING: Content served from Shell Accounts is content viewed by ORCS.BIZ as being owned by that user. ORCS.BIZ reserves the right to delete such content, especially in cases where such content violates applicable law. Additionally, ORCS.BIZ makes no guarantee of data integrity on such content, though attempts will be made to recover data in the unfortunate event of an outage. ORCS.BIZ will not permit any illegal activity with respect to file-sharing, "warez", online piracy, child pornography, other obscene material deemed illegal, other illegal activities, financial illegalities, or abuse of other users on the Service.

In the case that a user is unwillingly compromised, ORCS.BIZ reserves the right to, without notice, change passwords or settings on that user account to thwart invaders. ORCS.BIZ also makes clear that users who unwittingly compromise their own accounts will be given one (1) warning before account termination when such proof is provided that satisfies ORCS.BIZ that no malicious intent has occurred.

In addition to this notice, all users of this service must abide by and accept our rules.
