Acceptable Use Policy
This policy represents a guide to the acceptable use of Computer Country and the services it provides.
Computer Country accepts no responsibility for traffic which it originates that violates the acceptable use policy of any directly or indirectly connected networks beyond informing the client that they are in violation if the connected network so informs Computer Country.
- It is not acceptable to use Computer Country or any services offered for purposes which violate US or state laws.
- It is not acceptable to use Computer Country or any services offered to transmit threatening, obscene, pornographic, or harassing materials.
- It is not acceptable to be connected to your Computer Country dial-up ort ISDN account on more than one computer at a time or to be connected for more than 12 hours in one day unless you are paying for the extra service. This does not apply to most business or broadband accounts.
- Unsolicited advertising is not acceptable. Advertising is permitted on some mailing lists and news groups if the mailing list or news group explicitly allows advertising. Use should be consistent with guiding ethical statements and accepted community standards.
- It is not acceptable to use Computer Country provided services so as to interfere with or disrupt network users, services, or equipment. Such interference or disruption include, but are not limited to, distribution of unsolicited advertising, propagation of computer worms or viruses, and using the network to make unauthorized entry to any other computational, information, or communications devices or resources, including but not limited to, any machines accessible via the network. For example, users shall not intentionally develop programs that harass other users or infiltrate a computer or computing system and/or damage or alter the software components of a computer or computing system.
- It is assumed that information and resources available via Computer Country are private to those individuals and organizations which own or hold rights to those resources and information, unless specifically stated otherwise by the owners or holders of the rights. It is therefore not acceptable for an individual to use Computer Country provided services to access information or resources unless permission to do so has been granted by the owners or holders of those rights.
Computer Country will review violations of our Acceptable Use Policy on a case-by-case basis. Clear violations which are not promptly remedied by the client may result in termination of any or all Computer Country services.
The following policies and guidelines will be applied to determine whether or not a particular use of Computer Country is appropriate:
The intent of this policy is to make clear certain uses which are consistent with the purposes of Computer Country, not to exhaustively enumerate all such possible uses. Computer Country may at any time make determinations whether particular uses are or are not consistent with the previously mentioned policies.
Computer Country reserves the right to modify this policy at any time.
