Examples of prohibited uses of the PS Network are described below. The examples are guidelines and are not intended to be exhaustive.
The PS Network may not be used in connection with criminal or civil violations of laws, regulations, or other government requirements of any jurisdiction. Such violations include theft or infringement of copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, or other intellectual property, export control violations, fraud, forgery, pyramid or other prohibited business schemes; and theft, misappropriation, or unauthorised transmission or storage of funds, credit card information, personal information, or online services.
The PS Network may not be used to violate the security of a network, service or other system. Examples of security include hacking, cracking into, monitoring, or using systems without authorisation; scanning ports; conducting denial of service attacks; distributing viruses or other harmful software; smurf attacks; and unauthorised alteration or destruction of websites or other information.
The PS Network may not be used to transmit or store material of a threatening nature, including threats of death or physical harm, harassment, libel, and defamation.
The PS Network may not be used to transmit or store material of an offensive nature, including obscene, pornographic, indecent, abusive and harmful materials, or to transmit to recipients material which is inappropriate for them, including obscene or offensive materials to children.
The PS Network may not be used to spam. Spam includes any of the following activities:
- sending any unsolicited email that could be expected, in our judgement, to provoke complaints.
- sending email that does not accurately identify the sender, the sender’s return address, and the email address of origin.
- sending unsolicited email without identifying in the email a clear and easy means to be excluded from receiving additional email from the originator of the email.
- collecting the responses of unsolicited email.
- sending email with charity requests, petitions for signatures, or any chain mail related materials.
- transmitting email by or on behalf of a user of the Service which promotes the content hosted or transmitted using PS facilities, or which states or implies in any way that PS was involved in the transmission of such email or content.
- posting a single message or messages similar in content to more than five online forums or newsgroups.
- posting messages to an online forum or newsgroup that violate the rules of the forum or newsgroup.
The PS Network may not be used, directly or indirectly, with systems that are not configured and maintained in a manner which prevents their use by others in violation of this Policy.
The PS Network may not be used in a manner that damages PS’s reputation or goodwill; violates another ISP’s acceptable use policy and/or terms of service; or interferes with another’s use of the PS network or a PS service.
The PS Network may not be used to attempt an activity prohibited by this Policy – whether or not successful.
We take the types of misuse described very seriously, and you agree to take all reasonable steps to make sure that it does not happen. If we reasonably believe you have misused the service, we may take immediate action to suspend the service or end your agreement with us without telling you first, even if you were not aware that your service was misused.
- You agree that any content, software or other copyright material is supplied to you for your own private or business use only. You must not copy, modify or publish such material or resell, transfer or supply it to any other person or permit any other person to do these things.
- You are responsible for making sure any equipment you use to access the service is:
- suitable for use with the service;
- adequately protected against external threats such including but not limited to viruses, worm, trojans; and
- meets any instructions for its use
You agree to compensate us fully for any claims or legal action made or threatened against us by someone else because you have used the service in a way that breaks paragraphs 15, 16 and 17 of these general terms, or any other term of this agreement. We will tell you of such claims or legal action and update you on their progress. We will consider any representations you want to make.
To achieve the objectives of this Policy, we will determine, in our discretion, whether a use of the PS Network violates this Policy. While it is not our intent to monitor, control, or censor communications on the PS Network, when we become aware of a violation of this Policy, we may take such action as we deem appropriate to address the violation as described below.
Violations of this policy may result in a demand for immediate removal of offending material, immediate temporary or permanent filtering, blocked access, suspension or termination of service, or other response appropriate to the violation, as we determine in our discretion.
When feasible, it is our preference to give notice so that violations may be addressed voluntarily; however we reserve the right to act without notice when necessary, as we determine in our discretion. To the extent doing so does not interfere with our ability to achieve the objectives of this Policy (as we determine in our discretion), we will attempt to limit any filtering, suspension, termination, or other response to the addresses, locations, users, or services with respect to which the violation occurs. We will not have any liability for the actions we take in response to violations of this Policy. The responses described in this Policy are not exclusive and we may take any other technical or legal action we deem appropriate.
We may cooperate with system administrators at other ISPs or other network or computing service providers to enforce this Policy or a policy of another provider. We may involve, and will cooperate with, law enforcement if criminal activity is suspected. Violators may also be subject to civil or criminal liability under applicable law.
This Policy is not by itself sufficient to prevent possible harm to persons who use the PS Network as a result of violations by others. PS customers (and other users of the PS Network) are responsible for taking such steps as they deem necessary to protect the security, integrity, and availability of their networks, systems, services, and information, and to restrict access to undesired content, sites, and services. We will not be liable to PS customers or other users of the Service or the PS Network for harm that results from violations of this Policy, even when we are aware of those violations.
This Policy supplements, but does not supersede, the contracts between PS and its customers; if such a contract restricts a use of the PS Network that is not addressed in this Policy, the contract will govern with respect to such use.
A violation of this Policy by a PS customer is a material breach of the customer’s Contract with PS and may result in termination or other consequences as specified in the Contract. Refunds or credits are not issued in connection with actions taken for violations of this Policy.
