All Uvault customers, and Resellers and their respective customers must comply with Uvault's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

The Uvault acceptable use policy may be amended from time to time by Uvault and is effective upon posting of the revised policy on the Uvault site. You may wish to review the Uvault Acceptable Use Policy at this time.

The Uvault Acceptable Use Policy covers numerous topics including:
Spamming -- Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet (known as "spamming"). It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward Uvault, but also because it can overload Uvault's network and disrupt service to Uvault subscribers.

Intellectual Property Violations -- Engaging in any activity that infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of others, including copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, software piracy, and patents held by individuals, corporations, or other entities. Also, engaging in activity that violates privacy, publicity, or other personal rights of others. Uvault is required by law to remove or block access to customer content upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement. It is also Uvault's policy to terminate the privileges of customers who commit repeat violations of copyright laws.

Obscene Speech or Materials -- Using Uvault's network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material. Uvault is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through Uvault's network.

Defamatory or Abusive Language -- Using Uvault's network as a means to transmit or post defamatory, harassing, abusive, or threatening language.

Forging of Headers -- Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message.

Illegal or Unauthorized Access to Other Computers or Networks --Accessing illegally or without authorization computers, accounts, or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual's system (often known as "hacking"). Also, any activity that might be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e. port scan, stealth scan, or other information gathering activity).

Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, or Other Destructive Activities -- Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mailbombing, or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service, or equipment.

Facilitating a Violation of this AUP -- Advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available any software, program, product, or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mailbombing, denial of service attacks, and piracy of software.

Other Activities -- Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Uvault determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill, or customer relations. Again, all Resellers are expected to fully comply with all terms of the Uvault Acceptable Use Policy.

Any Server account that is used for illegal, abusive, or unethical activity prohibited in the Uvault AUP may be immediately deactivated by us without warning to you.
