System Resource Usage

If Cronless' system administration team determines that a customer's account is utilizing an unacceptable amount of system resources, Cronless may temporarily deactivate the account in question. If Cronless' staff deems necessary, an eviction notice may be sent to the customer of an offending account providing them with ten (10) days in which to either change or delete the offending cron job. This only occurs in extreme cases.

Cronless will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Because of the nature of this provision, each account will be considered and analyzed individually.

Support Abuse

At Cronless, we always treat our customers with the utmost respect. In return, we expect the same from you. If our staff feels that you are consistently addressing them in a demeaning or rude manner, your account may be suspended and you may be asked to take your business elsewhere. In the event that we terminate service for support abuse, customers will be given ten (10) days notice to find a new cron job service. We will issue a refund only for the unused portion of pre-paid service.

Server Abuse

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Cronless server or customer of Cronless is strictly prohibited.

Cronless will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers found in violation of this provision will be subject to account deactivation without refund.

Failure to Follow Policies

Failure to fully comply with these terms is grounds for account suspension and/or cron job deletion (with or without refund, subject to Cronless' discretion).

We reserve the right to remove any account without prior notice. If we deactivate your account or cron jobs for violating policy, you will forfeit your rights to a refund and none will be given. No refunds for advanced payment. Our normal policy is a warning first, and account deactivation the second offense, but no warning is required.

If you have questions or concerns, please let me know.
