Acceptable use policy
This AUP amends the Agreement between WP OPTIM and Customer and describes certain restrictions related to your use of the Services. Any violation by you shall be deemed a breach of the Agreement. We may update this AUP from time to time in our sole discretion; the current version may be found at https://woptim.com/terms/
If any third party has questions regarding this AUP or wishes to report a violation or provide notice per the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, such party may contact us at through our online contact form, located at: https://woptim.com/contact/
Laws; Harmful Content. You may not use the Services to violate any governing law or regulation, including laws prohibiting: copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other intellectual property infringement, misuse, or misappropriation; distribution of child pornography, child erotica, non-consensual sex acts (including in the support of or furtherance of sex trafficking), or bestiality; gambling; defamation, harassment, libel, or slander; fraud or false advertising; and hacking, phishing, social engineering, or any transmission of malicious code or unauthorized use of the computing resources of an end user. It is WP OPTIM policy to terminate the Services of customers who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights. Further, you may not use the Services in connection with any content that we reasonably believe: promotes, incites, or threatens violence; is in support of or furtherance of sex trafficking; contains harassing content or hate speech; violates any person’s privacy; constitutes terrorism or trafficking in weapons or other illegal items; or is likely to result in retaliation against WP OPTIM’s system, network, or employees, including behavior that results in any denial of service attack. The Services may not be used in violation of export laws, controls, regulations, or sanction policies of the United States or your applicable jurisdiction. The Services may not be used by any individual or legal entity which is involved with or suspected of involvement in activities or causes relating to: illegal gambling; terrorism; narcotics trafficking; arms trafficking or the proliferation, development, design, manufacture, production, stockpiling, or use of nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, weapons of mass destruction, or missiles; in each case including any affiliation with others whatsoever who sponsor or support the above such activities or causes.
High-Risk Use. You may not use the Services in any circumstance or fashion where a failure of the Services could result in death or physical injury.
Spam. If you use the Services to transmit email, you must do so responsibly. Sending or promoting spam using the Services is prohibited and may result in immediate termination of your account. We consider spam to be the transmission of any email messages that are in violation of the most recent regulations issued by the Federal Trade Commission implementing the CAN-SPAM Act or, if you are sending emails to non-domestic end users, any foreign equivalent thereof. In addition, and at our discretion, we may place limits on the number of outbound messages you send if our review of your account indicates that you are jeopardizing our network stability. Without limiting any other rights we may have, the parties agree that should you breach this section by sending spam it would be difficult to determine actual damages. Accordingly, a $500 charge per violation will be assessed as a reasonable estimate of the damages. The parties further agree that such $500 would not act as a penalty.
Regulated and Sensitive Information. It is possible to run an ecommerce site on our platform, provided that you follow some best practices that prevent credit card information from being processed or stored on our platform. You are not permitted to use or cause the Services to store or process sensitive or otherwise regulated health or financial information, including Protected Health Information (as that term is defined under HIPAA), cardholder data protected under PCI DSS regulations (such as credit or debit card data), or other financial data (including any financial account details). You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any liabilities arising from your violation of this restriction.
Overburdening Resources. You may not interfere with our business or our ability to provide services to other customers, nor take any action nor make any use of the Services that places excessive burdens on the network or systems used to provide such services. Specifically, you may not use or provide open proxies or Internet Relay Chat or use the Services for video streaming. If your use of the Services materially exceeds the use by similarly situated customers, we may offer to move you to a different plan or charge you for the additional use. If you refuse, we may place restrictions on your use of the Services. You may not perform any vulnerability or penetration testing of WP OPTIM’s network or systems, including your own hosted environment, without our prior written approval.
Security Requirements. You must take reasonable security precautions in connection with your use of the Services. You are responsible for the actions and omissions of anyone to whom you provide access to the Services or the content you create using the Services.

Service level agreement
This SLA amends the Agreement between WP OPTIM and Customer and addresses the uptime guarantees in relation to the Services we provide to you and your remedies for our failure to meet such guarantees. The remedies contained in this SLA are your sole and exclusive remedies for any issues addressed herein. We may update this SLA from time to time in our sole discretion; the current version may be found at https://woptim.com/terms/
- SERVICE AVAILABILITY WP Engine will make the Services available 99.9% of the time, excluding any Excused Downtime. In a given calendar month, we calculate “Service Availability” as follows:
Service Availability = (total minutes Services are available) x 100
(total minutes in the month) – (Excused Downtime)
- EXCUSED DOWNTIME
“Excused Downtime” means the length of time the Services are unavailable due to:
- Scheduled Maintenance;
- Emergency Maintenance;
- Beta Services;
- Force Majeure events; and
- the actions or omissions of you, your Authorized Users, or any third-party acting on your behalf or at your direction, including any unauthorized use of the Services, breach of the Agreement or Acceptable Use Policy, or any use or configuration of the Services that exceeds WP OPTIM’s recommendations or advertised limits.
“Scheduled Maintenance” includes any maintenance performed during the following windows or for which we provide reasonable notice or coordination with you in advance of the maintenance.
Data Center location: Maintenance window: Americas 10p – 4a Central Time Europe 4p – 10p Central Time Asia-Pacific 8a – 2p Central Time
“Emergency Maintenance” means any maintenance performed outside the Scheduled Maintenance windows without advance notice where such maintenance is reasonably and urgently required to protect the integrity, availability, or security of any online systems.
- SLA CREDITS
You are entitled to a credit of 5% of the applicable monthly Fees for each full hour of downtime in excess of the Service Availability targets. (For example, you will receive a 5% credit for between 1 and 60 minutes of downtime in excess of the Service Availability targets, a 10% credit for between 61 and 120 minutes, etc.) In order to receive a credit, you must contact Support within 30 days of the event giving rise to the credit. Credits are based on our monitoring, shall not exceed 100% of the applicable monthly Fees, may not be carried over or aggregated, are forfeited at the expiration or termination of the Agreement, and will not be paid or provided as a refund.
- ENHANCED SLA
A service or feature which is described as being subject to our “Enhanced SLA” benefits as follows: the Service Availability target is 99.99%, and you will receive a credit of 3% of the applicable monthly Fees for each half hour of downtime in excess of those targets. Except for these changes, all other terms of the SLA apply as normal.
- If there is a conflict between the terms of the Agreement, the terms shall govern according to the following order of precedence: 1) the Order, 2) these Terms of Service, and 3) any terms incorporated by reference by either of the above. The substantive terms contained in your purchase order, order confirmation, notice of receipt, vendor registration portal, or any other transactional document, form, or notice provided by you shall be void and without effect, even where your customary business practices require a showing of assent to such terms by us such as by signature or reference in an invoice.
- We may update these Terms of Service from time to time in our sole discretion; the current version may be found at https://woptim.com/terms/. In the event of any material change, we will provide you with written notice. Your continued use of the Services following such updates constitutes your acceptance of the same. If you do not agree to the terms of any modification, you may terminate the Agreement in accordance with the Termination section below.
- We will provide the Services in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the SLA. You acknowledge that we may engage third parties to provide or enable elements of the Services, provided that we are responsible to you for the performance of such third parties as if we performed the Services ourselves. You shall use the Services solely for the intended purpose in accordance with the Agreement, including the AUP, and provide us with all information, assistance, and materials reasonably required for our ongoing provision of the Services.
- We will provide support to you through the standard means we make available to our customers (e.g. knowledgebase, forums, chat, ticket). When seeking support you must have a basic understanding of the systems and technology related to the Services.

Fees are payable in the currency specified in the Order and are not refundable except as expressly stated herein.
- You agree to the issue and acceptance of invoices in electronic format. We will invoice you immediately upon execution of the Order and on each renewal date thereafter.

- We and our licensors own and shall continue to own all right, title, and interest in and to the Services and the systems and networks used to provide such Services, including all system-generated data (e.g. performance data), modifications, improvements, upgrades, derivative works, and all intellectual property rights in and to any of the foregoing. Except for the express rights granted herein, we do not grant any other licenses, express or implied, to any of our intellectual property including software, services, or products.

Each Party agrees to preserve the confidential nature of the other Party’s Confidential Information by retaining and using the Confidential Information in trust and confidence, solely for its use as permitted and in connection with the Agreement, and by using the same degree of protection that it uses to protect its own similar confidential information, which in no event shall be less than reasonable care. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information to the limited extent such disclosure is required by law, legal process, or court order, including any requirement under applicable data privacy regulations that a notice of data breach be given to a supervisory authority or regulatory agency. Information disclosed for these reasons will not cease to be Confidential Information.

Definning Billable Visits
- Our pricing is partially based on the number of monthly visits to your site, we’ve provided as clear of guidelines as possible about which visits are considered billable. If you have any questions, concerns or disputes please reach out to our Support team.
- A raw visit in reality is any hit to any part of your site as that draws raw server resources. We do not count all raw hits to your site as a billable visit, however, because every hit to your site doesn’t necessarily represent any value to you. The following guidelines are laid out to make billable versus non-billable as clear and fair as possible.
- A single visit is one unique IP address logged per day (UTC). This means that a unique IP address can only count as one visit per day.
- Pages and other dynamic requests are counted as visits.
- Static assets such as images, css, js, and other files do not count as a visit, and are excluded.
- Known bot user agents and prefetched traffic are not counted as a visit.
- While these does represent real traffic to your site, and real cost on our side to serve these requests, we also respect that sometimes these are out of your control.
- We do not count “image visits” as billable. This is a visit which hits only static content (usually an image), but doesn’t hit a normal page on your site. This is common when not using a CDN, getting hot-linked, Twitter campaigns, and embedding images into email campaigns. If you get a lot of this sort of traffic, we’ll reach out to you to understand what’s happening, and see if we can work together to create a solution that doesn’t involve so much traffic. This may be enabling our CDN, getting you signed up for a service like CloudFlare, moving content to a content service like S3.
- We do not count visits from well-known “bot” user agents. When we see a known bot User Agent in the Nginx access logs, we do log the visit, but we do not include that as a billable visit. While we do not count bot visits toward billable visits, those bot visits would need to be coming from a User Agent that is a known bot User Agent. If we see a large amount of this sort of traffic, we’ll reach out to you to let you know. Large amounts of bot traffic can actually cause bigger performance issues and likely needs to be reduced to keep things running swiftly.
- Calculating billable visits. The number of unique IP addresses to the site in a 24-hour period is the number of “billable visits” – factoring out well-known “bot” user agents, and static requests. The number of “billable visits” in a given month is the sum of those daily billable visits. All sites on your hosting account are then added together at the end of your billing cycle.
