Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

    Effective Date: November 1, 2007

    Introduction
    REBCON hosts, implements, and manages, and supports third-party software applications at REBCON data center(s). We offer these
    web-based services to clients who, in turn, may make them available to their own customers or employees (collectively, "Users"). This
    Acceptable Use Policy (the "AUP") governs the use of REBCON services and networks, including data within those networks
    (collectively, the "REBCON Network"). REBCON retains the right to modify this AUP at any time.  Each User is responsible for
    compliance with the AUP.

    Network Security
    No User will breach or try to breach the security of the REBCON Network. Violation of the policy will subject the User to civil damages
    and criminal penalties. Accordingly, REBCON will investigate and, where appropriate, cooperate with law enforcement to prosecute all
    efforts to circumvent REBCON security. Examples of prohibited practices include, without limitation: accessing data not intended for
    the User Logging into a server or account for which the User has not expressly been given authorized access; attempting to probe,
    scan, or test the vulnerability of the REBCON Network; breaching security or authentication measures without authorization;
    attempting to interfere with service to any other User, or to any host or network including, without limitation, by means of
    "overloading," "flooding," "mailbombing," or "crashing;" taking any action in order to obtain services to which the user is not entitled.

    Illegal Use
    Use of the REBCON Network will be for lawful purposes only. For example, no User, directly or indirectly, will use the REBCON Network
    to create, transmit, distribute, or store material that:

  • Violates a trademark, copyright, trade secret, or other intellectual property right
  • Violates the privacy, publicity, or other personal right of any person
  • Impairs the privacy of communications
  • Contains obscene or pornographic content
  • Could be deemed as threatening, abusive, or hateful
  • Violates export control laws or regulations
  • Encourages conduct constituting a criminal offense or giving rise to civil liability
  • Causes technical disturbances by introducing destructive mechanisms such as viruses or worms
  • Violates reasonable network rules of REBCON or other service providers
  • Constitutes deceptive online marketing or business practices
  • Assists or permits any persons in engaging in any of the activities described above
  • A User who becomes aware of such activity will immediately notify REBCON and take all appropriate action to cause such activity
    to cease.

    Unsolicited Communications ("Spam")
    Posting the same or similar unsolicited email messages, bulk commercial advertising, or informal announcements to one or more
    groups (practices commonly referred to as "Spam") is prohibited, as are each of the following:
  • Sending or posting email messages that are excessive or intended to harass or annoy others
  • Continuing to send email messages to a recipient who has indicated a desire not to receive them
  • Sending email with forged TCP/IP packet header information
  • Omitting, deleting, forging, misrepresenting, or disguising transmission information
  • Taking any action intended to cloak or disguise the User's identity or contact information

    Content
    Users are responsible for all content that they transmit through, and/or have hosted on, the REBCON Network. REBCON exercises no
    control over, and accepts no responsibility for, the content passing through the REBCON Network.

    Data Privacy
    From time to time, Users may transmit information through the REBCON Network that pertains to an individual, and which is,
    accordingly, subject to certain foreign, federal, state or local laws that regulate the processing and transmission of personal data.
    Responsibility for legal compliance with data privacy laws rests with Users. REBCON subscribes voluntarily to the Safe Harbor
    principles, which require compliance with Directive 95/46/EC (as amended) of the European Union, and which govern the transmission
    of personal data to non-EU countries. Confirmation of REBCON's self-certification with respect to Safe Harbor can be found at: http:
    //www.export.gov/safeharbor/index.html. Also see the REBCON Privacy Policy.

    Consequences of AUP Violations
    REBCON reserves the right to suspend or terminate access to the REBCON Network on notice to the User of an AUP violation. If, in
    REBCON's opinion, a violation has the potential to result in REBCON liability of any kind, REBCON will have the right to suspend or
    terminate access immediately, with notice to the User after the fact. A User's indirect or attempted violation of this AUP, and actual or
    attempted violations by a third party at the behest or for the benefit of a User, equate to violations of the AUP. Further, it is a
    violation of this AUP to use the services of another provider for the purpose of facilitating activity prohibited by this AUP, if use of
    another provider's service can reasonably be expected to affect the REBCON Network.

    REBCON reserves the right to modify this AUP at any time without prior notice. Users who are uncertain whether a contemplated use
    is permitted, or who have questions or comments about the AUP, or who have information regarding a prohibited use of the REBCON
    Network are encouraged to contact:
