Appendix A - Acceptable Use Policy
By using Inet7 web hosting services, Account Holder
agrees to comply with this Policy.
Account Holders are expected to use the Internet with respect, courtesy,
and responsibility, giving due regard to the rights of other Internet
users. Inet7 expects the Account Holder to have a basic knowledge of
how the Internet functions, the types of uses, which are generally acceptable,
and the types of uses, which are to be avoided. Common sense is the
best guide as to what is considered acceptable use. The following are
Illegality in any form, including but not limited to activities such
as unauthorized distribution or copying of copyrighted software, violation
of U.S. export restrictions, harassment, fraud, trafficking in obscene
material, drug dealing, and other illegal activities.
The provisions of this Policy are intended as guidelines and are not
meant to be exhaustive. Generally, conduct that violates law, regulation,
or the accepted norms of the Internet community, whether or not expressly
mentioned in this Policy, is prohibited. Inet7 reserves the right at
all times to prohibit activities that damage its commercial reputation
Inet7 servers may be used only for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution
or storage of any material in violation of any applicable law or regulation
is prohibited. This includes, without limitation, material protected
by copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property
right used without proper authorization, and material that is obscene,
defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control
laws. Examples of non-acceptable content or links: "Pirated software",
"Hackers programs or archives", "Warez Sites", "Irc Bots", "Mp3", "Adult
Pictures", "Pornography". Inet7 will be the sole arbiter as to what
constitutes a violation of this provision, provided that any determination
of a violation of this provision shall be made reasonably in good faith
based on applicable law, regulation and the accepted norms of the Internet
System and Network Security
Violations of system or network security are prohibited, and may result
in criminal and civil liability. Examples include, but are not limited
to the following: Unauthorized access, use, probe, or scan of a systems
security or authentication measures, data or traffic. Interference with
service to any user, host or network including, without limitation,
mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system and
broadcast attacks, forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of
the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.
Misuse of System Resources
It is a violation for anyone to post information or to include programs
on the web space provided through the WEBCASTING services which consume
excessive CPU time or storage space.
No one shall post unlawful or defamatory information about a person
without their consent, intentionally inflicting emotional distress,
or violating trademarks, copyrights, or other intellectual property
Sending unsolicited mail messages, including, without limitation, commercial
advertising and informational announcements, is explicitly prohibited.
A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without
the express permission of the site.
It is contrary to Inet7 policy for account holders to use Inet7 servers
to effect or participate in any of the following activities:
1 To post to any Usenet or other newsgroup, forum, e-mail mailing
list or other similar group or list articles which are off-topic according
to the charter or other owner-published FAQ or description of the group
2 To send unsolicited mass e-mailings, if such unsolicited e-mailings
provoke complaints from the recipients ("Flamming" or "Trolling");
3 To engage in any of the foregoing activities using the service of
another provider, but channeling such activities through a Inet7 provided
server, or using a Inet7 provided server as a maildrop for responses;
4 To falsify user information provided to Inet7 or to other users of
the service in connection with use of an Inet7 service.
Consequences of Violation
If Inet7 becomes aware of an alleged violation by any Account Holder
of the Acceptable Use Policy, Inet7 shall promptly notify such Account
Holder of all facts supporting such allegation. If Inet7 reasonably
determines that the Account Holder's activities violate the Acceptable
Use Policy and pose a clear, present and material risk of harm to Inet7's
business or operations or to Inet7's other account holders, Inet7 may
immediately, without prior notice to Account Holder, suspend or otherwise
restrict Account Holder 's use of the affected Web Hosting Services
to the extent necessary to prevent further possible unauthorized activity.
Within one hour of taking any action to suspend or restrict a Account
Holder's use of the affected Web Hosting Services and Products, Inet7
shall provide written notice to Account Holder by facsimile or e-mail
stating the actions taken and all facts supporting any allegation of
violations of the Acceptable Use Policy. Following completion of the
investigation, and delivery to Inet7 of a written report setting forth
the details and conclusion of such investigation, depending on the severity
of the violation, Inet7 may, in its sole discretion, restrict, suspend,
or terminate the affected Web Hosting Services provided to the offending
Account Holder and/or pursue other civil remedies. If Inet7 becomes
aware that such violation is a criminal offense, Inet7 will notify the
appropriate law enforcement department of such violation. Inet7 does
not issue service credits for any outages incurred through service disablement
resulting from the Acceptable Use Policy violations. All Inet7 contacts
