Because 99,9% of the population finds spam messages annoying, we are urged to apply a very strict anti-spam policy. Below you can find the current anti-spam policy of InstantÂ Dedicated. It applies for all hosting, hosting related and/or SMS/IVR services.
Instant Dedicated is firmly committed to the privacy of her customers and the data which they store on the Instant Dedicated dedicated servers. In addition to the security of your account information, we also treat the data you store on our servers with the greatest care. Your server and therefore its data remains in the Netherlands in one of our datacenters and is fully erased once a server gets cancelled and/or terminated.
Sensitive payment security
Credit / debit card purchases for Instant Dedicated services are processed by the third-party vendor Stripe. When our customers provide their credit / debit card information on our website the data is sent to Stripe, i.e., the payment data is not stored on our systems.
For PayPal transactions, Instant Dedicated passes the request to PayPal and the transaction occurs directly on the PayPal website. Therefore, the payment data is not stored on our systems. Both Stripe, PayPal and other payment processors we use, power online financial transactions for thousands of businesses globally, and they are compliant with PCI-DSS standards for the storage and handling of payment information.
All communications with Instant Dedicated are transmitted over (HTTPS) for all of our services. We recommend customers to change their passwords to their servers after the first login and recommend that customers use SSH keys to securely set up their access.
What is SPAM?
To define the word SPAM: A large amount of email sent to recipients who did not explicitly asked to receive them. All emails in this quantity all contain almost the same content and often contain advertising for products, political thinking and/or propaganda. Also sending out the same email multiple times to a recipient who didnâ€™t explicitly ask for it, also subjects to spamming. (This applies for both consumers as companies).
What action is taken against SPAM?
Instant Dedicated handles a zerotolerance policy against SPAM, this means that when a user of our systems and/or network makes himself guilty of spamming (sending out spam), we will immediately remove him from our systems and/or from our network, without a cancellation of the contract or a refund of the open balance. Eventual extra costs made by Instant Dedicated will be charged through to you. On a repeating matter of SPAM, a fee of â‚¬ 500,- will be charged through to you for the administrative work!
Where can I report SPAM?
