  2. What events qualify as Abuse by SectorHost.com? While it is impossible to identify each and every event that would qualify as Abuse herein this policy, SectorHost has made best effort to provide a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, list of events that are considered to be Abuse under this Policy and the AUP. Abuse shall include, but is not limited to:

    1. The sending of UCE (Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail) through the SectorHost.com network.
    2. The sending of any e-mail, generally considered to be “SPAM”, through the SectorHost.com network.
