General Information on the Internet
The Internet is a voluntary group of users who are interested in and willing to exchange information and data with other Internet users. At present there is no oversight group providing mediation over principles, policies or procedures for use of the Internet or information and data accessed via the Internet.
In order to facilitate their contractual relationship the Client and Dependable Internet, L.L.C. wish to define a working etiquette of principles and policies and establish operating guidelines and acceptable standards of use of the Internet.
To this end both parties agree as follows:
Principles Governing Acceptable use of the Internet by the Client
1. Responsibility and Respect - The Internet is a network intended for use by mature, adult users. The Client recognizes this principle and undertakes at all times to act with respect, courtesy and responsibility, giving due regard to the interests and rights of other Internet user groups. This general standard carries with it the following specific responsibilities:
a) Knowledge of the Internet - The Client agrees to obtain a fundamental knowledge of the Internet and its operating procedures and principles.
b) Improper Uses - The Client will avoid infraction of certain generally accepted guidelines on Internet usage such as: restrictions of mass mailings (SPAM mails) and mass advertisements, pirating or copying of software, mail bombing or other methods of attempting to deny service or access to other users, and attempts to violate security.
c) Compliance with Laws - The Client will ensure its use of the Internet complies with all appropriate federal, state and local law and regulations, including but not limited to those principles of law which protect against compromise of copyrights, trade secrets, proprietary information and other intellectual property rights, libel or defamation of character, invasion of privacy, tortuous interference, and export of technical or military data to prohibited countries.
d) Validation of Information - The Client is responsible for validating the integrity of the information and data it receives or transmits over the Internet.
e) Security - The Client is required to protect the security of its Internet account and usage. The Client(s) password will be treated as private and confidential and not disclosed to or shared with any third parties.
f) Discretion and Judgment - The Client is expected to use discretion in the treatment and handling of Internet information and data and to take particular care to insure that adult information is not transmitted to juvenile users of the Internet.
g) Pornography - Due to legal and social issues, we will not accept any new clients who publish pornographic images. If an existing Client publishes pornographic images, Dependable Internet, L.L.C.may issue a warning and/or suspend your account.
h) Excessive CPU usage - Clients will not be allowed to use excessive amounts of CPU processing on any of our servers or face immediate suspension. For example: 1) a few clients have tried re-selling our counters or auto-responders to the rest of the world which caused an excessive amount of requests on our server(s). 2) email bombs. 3) re-selling CGI access to other 3rd parties.
