ComputerHistory.net will not censor any information or web pages with

in a historical context.

- All content must be related to computer history, including, but

computing pioneers, early personal experiences, and so on.
- Copyrighted materials must either have approval from the

- All web pages must be the original work or legal property of the

All web pages, content, and copyrights remain the property of their

ComputerHistory.net is given a non-exclusive right to permanently

ComputerHistory.net will not require the use of or conformity to any

ComputerHistory.net will not frame any website or information.
No fees will ever be charged for hosting a web site at
ComputerHistory.net. Donations are accepted to offset the cost of
hosting, but are not required.
ComputerHistory.net reserves the right to terminate hosting of any web
site or collection of information at any time for any reason.
Realistically, however, the only reasons a hosted web site would be
removed would be:
Bandwith Note: In the case where a hosted site becomes so popular that
my hosting costs go through the roof, I might have to take the site
offline, at least temporarily. I would certainly try to find another
solution, but it is possible that the only solution would be to remove
it, making it available by request only.
- Blatant disregard for prohibited content (See Censorship above).
- Copyright violations.
- Excessive bandwith usage (See note below).
- Excessive disk usage (See note below).
- Need to close the entire site due to financial hardship.
- Acts of Dog (See note below).
Disk Space Note: If the number of sites hosted begins to overflow
the amount of disk space I can afford, I may need to take some sites
offline temporarily. They would always be available by request, of
course. Again, this is not an ideal solution, but it is possible that
it may happen.
Acts of Dog: Anything which we have no control over, such as ISP's
suddenly and completely disappearing (right after cashing my check for
a year's hosting), servers crashing, internet being outlawed, etc.
If something like that happens, all I can say is: I didn't do it!
A site will never be removed because of any of these reasons:
Got any other concerns? Let me know and I'll add 'em to this list.
- Disagreement between the web site owner and the owner of ComputerHistory.net
- Personal distaste for web design/layout/color scheme.
- Personal distaste for the subject matter (as long as it is computer history-related.)
ComputerHistory.net will not sell or share any information about web
sites or their owners that are hosted at ComputerHistory.net. Period.
