In respect for the high level of responsible behaviour we expect from users, we trust our users and place few prior limits on what they can do. Our shell accounts run without strict quota limits, or process limits. We trust users to be reasonable and fair in their use of resources. When in doubt, ask. In case that isn't clear enough, you can read our policy documents. Note that in some cases we will charge you extra should you exceed certain resource thresholds.
Several documents describe policy at JTAN. In these FAQs is a simple summary of the main policy points, prices, and account features, but if you really want to know all the fine print, the Complete Policy is also online here:
In short, our policy is this. Although we don't normally care if you are lying about your name, we do want to be paid. We also won't tolerate being paid with stolen funds. Therefore, if you pay with a credit card, or PayPal, or any other system where payment isn't guaranteed, we need to know who you really are, and you really must be the person paying. No fake names, no BS. We screen applications carefully, so don't waste our time, OK?
However, once you have an account here, so long as you don't violate any laws, your personal information and activities are private to you and you alone. We share no data with marketers. We encourage the use of strong encryption in an attempt to secure privacy. We do monitor our systems, of course, but only to detect violations of the law or violations of our acceptable use policy as spelled out in our fine print .
