If, at any time, you have questions or concerns regarding our acceptable use policy or if you believe a violation of our policy has occurred, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) sets forth the principles that govern the use of the Web-based products, emails and services provided by your service provider (the “Services” and, the “Service Provider”) to the Service Provider’s customers (collectively, “customers”). The Service Provider’s goal is to offer customers a positive experience in their use and enjoyment of the Services. To help the Service Provider offer its customers the best user experience possible and to ensure the Services are used in an appropriate manner, all customers need to follow the same rules and guidelines with respect to their use of the Services. This AUP is designed to help protect customers and the Internet community from irresponsible, abusive or illegal activities, and to make the Services available to all customers as consistently and efficiently as possible. By accessing and/or using the Services, you agree to adhere to this AUP.
Actions, whether intentional or inadvertent, that the Service Provider considers inappropriate and grounds for restriction of access to or removal of offending material or termination of Services include, but are not limited to, the following:
This is intended to be an illustrative, and not exhaustive, list of Inappropriate Actions. The examples identified in this list are in addition to the content identified in the agreement between the Service Provider and its customer pursuant to whose agreement you are given the right to access the Services and are provided solely for your guidance. As a Customer you agree to comply with these restrictions and not to conduct or participate in an Inappropriate Action. If you are unsure whether any contemplated use or action is permitted, or wish to report a violation of this AUP, please contact the Service Provider.
The Service Provider prefers to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action. However, if the Services are used in a way that the Service Provider, in its sole discretion as between any customer and the Service Provider, believes violates this AUP, the Service Provider may take such responsive action(s) as the Service Provider, in its sole discretion, determines to be appropriate. These responsive actions may include, but are not limited to, suspending your right to access and use the Services until the Inappropriate Action has ceased to the Service Provider’s satisfaction, and termination of the agreement between the Service Provider and the customer on whose behalf you are using the Services. The Service Provider reserves the right, in its sole discretion as between any customer and the Service Provider, to restrict access to or to remove any content for any reason, including but not limited to, your violation of any laws or the terms and conditions of any agreement between the Service Provider and its customer pursuant to whose agreement you are given the right to access the Services, or this Acceptable Use Policy.
While the Service Provider and its third party service provider may elect to monitor your use of the Service to confirm your adherence to this Acceptable Use Policy, it is ultimately the responsibility of the user of the Services to ensure that all use complies with this Acceptable Use Policy.
The Service Provider’s right to take action under this Acceptable Use Policy will not place an obligation on the Service Provider to monitor or exert any editorial control over your Web site.
A customer’s use of bandwidth is expected to compare to the normal bandwidth used by other customers. If, in the sole discretion of the Service Provider, a customer requires or is utilizing bandwidth that is excessive in comparison to other customers, the Service Provider may impose additional charges for this bandwidth usage, or if such charges cannot be agreed upon, may prevent such excessive use of the Services.
You may not use the Service Provider’s network or any third party networks contracted by the Service Provider to circumvent user authentication or interfere with the security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for you, logging into a server or account you are not authorized to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks in search of weaknesses, or violation of any other organization’s security policy. You may not attempt to interfere with or deny service to any user, host, or network. Any violation of network security may result in immediate termination of the agreement between the customer on whose behalf you are utilizing the Services and the Service Provider.
The Service Provider reserves the right to revise, amend, and/or modify this AUP at any time. Notice of any revision, amendment, and/or modification to this AUP will be posted on the log-in page for the Services. You agree that your use of the Services, beyond a period of ten (10) calendar days after a notice of such change has been provided on the Services for the first time, shall constitute your consent to the revised, amended, and/or modified version of the AUP.
