Datacentre WiFi Acceptable Use Policy

Acceptable Use Policy


In this Acceptable Use Policy references to our "Network" mean our WiFi network, references to the "Services" mean connectivity to the internet using our Network, and references to our "Website" means *

This Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") applies to all use of our Website, our Network and the Services. You are reminded that, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions, any failure to comply with this AUP may result in the suspension and/or termination of your use of our Website and/or our Network and/or the Services without warning. The primary goals of this AUP are:
• to protect the internet infrastructure, and other internet users
• to protect our servers, Network and customers, and our ability to provide services to our customers
• to protect our reputation and ensure we are able to act as a responsible internet service provider.
It is based on some general standards of behaviour accepted by the general internet community, but is not an exhaustive document. We reserve the right at all times to act to protect our reputation, networks and servers.
The internet and its infrastructure fundamentally rely on mutual co-operation and consideration between both users and service providers. Therefore, both we and you have a responsibility to maintain the highest standards in these respects for the benefit of all. Furthermore, if we permit any abuse of the internet via or related to our services, our ability to provide services to you and other customers may be impaired.

Responsibility for Persons Accessing Services using your Equipment
Remember that, according to our Terms and Conditions, you are responsible for the actions of anyone that you allow to access the Services using your equipment, so you must ensure that anyone else who you permit to use the Services using your equipment is aware of and complies with this AUP.

Acceptable Use

You assume total responsibility for all content and materials distributed, transmitted, accessed or viewed while using the Services.

Illegal and Unlawful Use

You may only use the Services, our Network and our Website for lawful purposes. Access to and transmission, distribution or storage of any material in violation of any applicable law or regulation is prohibited. You must not use the Services, our Network or our Website to access or provide access to or distribute, transmit or store any illegal or unlawful material or material which may violate the rights of any third party. This includes, without limitation, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right used without proper authorisation, and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, violates export control laws or is discriminatory, inflammatory or in breach of confidence and/or privacy.

Without prejudice to the foregoing provisions, you must not use the Services to access, view, transmit or distribute pornographic material or other offensive material.
You must not use the Services to post or transmit viruses or any harmful component.
You must not exceed any agreed limits or restrictions of any kind on the use of the Services (including, without limitation, disk usage, bandwidth usage or data transfer quotas).
You must not use the Services for the purpose of obtaining unauthorised access to any computer or service.
You must not use the Services to facilitate, allow or assist in any "Denial of Service" (DoS) attack.
You must not use the Services in a manner that will detrimentally affect our servers (including, without limitation, consuming excessive resources) or our ability to provide services to other customers.

Electronic Mail/E-Mail
You must not use the Services to send, or facilitate, permit or assist in the sending of, any volume of unsolicited mail messages (often referred to as SPAM) however large or small. This includes, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements. You must not use or authorise the use of unsolicited e-mail or newsgroup postings to advertise any services. This applies even if you do not send the communications via the Services. These activities use excessive resources, incur great cost and annoy customers - we (and most responsible ISP's) are strictly against this in any form. Complaints regarding these activities may lead to the immediate suspension of your use of the Services and/or our Network and may lead to the closure of your account.
You must not use the Services to transmit e-mail to a person or company via, or relating to, the Services after they have specifically requested that you do not contact them. It is your responsibility to ensure that any automated mail system you employ complies with this.
You must not use the Services to collect replies to communications sent from any source, where those communications violate this AUP or the usage policy of the source provider.

Usenet and Newsgroup
Posting the same or similar message to one or more newsgroups (excessive cross-posting or multiple-posting) is explicitly prohibited.

System Usage and Network Security
Violation of system or network security are prohibited and may result in criminal and/or civil liability. We will investigate incidents involving such violations and may involve and co-operate with law enforcement authorities if a criminal violation is suspected. Examples of system or network security violations include, but are not limited to:
• Unauthorised access to or use of data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system and / or network or to breach security or authentication measures without express authorisation of the owner of the system or that network.
• Interference with service to any user, host or network including, but not limited to:
o Mail-bombing
o Packet flooding
o Deliberate attempts to overload a system
o Broadcast attacks
o Forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.
o Unauthorised monitoring of data and / or traffic on any network or system without the express authorisation of the owner of the system or network.
