Optivon, Inc. Use Policy
Acceptable Use Policy
Our goal at Optivon is to provide a high quality service to our customers. To ensure our high standards are met, we have certain responsibilities regarding the use of our network.
The Acceptable Use Policy below describes activities which Optivon considers to be violations of the terms of the Service Agreement and which are therefore prohibited. The examples listed are not exhaustive and may change from time to time. They are provided solely for guidance to Optivons’ customers. If you are unsure whether any contemplated use or action is permitted, please contact us for assistance.
Please be advised that Optivon intends to exercise its rights under the Terms of Service to immediately terminate service, without notice, to any account which has been used in a manner that is disruptive or is otherwise in violation of the Terms of Service.
Actions which Optivon considers violations of the Terms of Service include the following:
System and Network
- Attempts to obtain unauthorized access, such as attempts to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network or account (“cracking”). This includes accessing data not intended for the customer, logging into a server or account the customer is not expressly authorized to access or probing the security of other networks.
- Attempts to interfere with service to any user, host, or network. This includes “denial of service” attacks, “flooding” of networks, deliberate attempts to overload a service and attempts to “crash” a host.
- Use of any kind of program/script/command designed to interfere with a user’s terminal session.
- Undertake any action that interferes with either the provision of Optivon services to any other person.
- Interference with any other person’s use of Optivon’s services or the impairment of the quality of the service.
- Take any action that affects the privacy of any communications effected over the Optivon system.
- Harassment, whether through language, frequency, or size of messages.
- Sending email to any person who does not wish to receive it. If a recipient asks to stop receiving email, the customer must not send that person any further email.
- Sending unsolicited bulk mail messages (“junk mail” or “spam”) which, in Optivon’s sole judgment, is disruptive or generates a significant number of user complaints. This includes bulk mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements and political tracts.
- Forwarding or otherwise propagating chain letters and pyramid schemes, whether or not the recipient wishes to receive such mailings.
- Malicious email such as “mailbombing” or flooding a user or site with very large or numerous pieces of email.
- Accounts may not be used to collect replies to messages sent from another Internet Service Provider where those messages violate this Acceptable Use Policy or the Acceptable Use Policy of that other provider.
- Intrusion into any part of the Optivon System or the Services provided without express written authorization from an Optivon officer or a court order.
- Tampering with the security of any part of the Optivon system for any purpose.
