The purpose of Pukunui's Hosting Service Agreement, hereinafter referred to as the HSA, is to comply with all federal, state, and local laws coupled with protecting the network security, network availability, physical security, Customer privacy, and other factors affecting the services provided by Pukunui.

Pukunui reserves the right to impose reasonable rules and regulations regarding the use of its services provided to all Customers and such rules and regulations are subject to change.

No credits will be issued for any interruption in service resulting from policy violations.
