Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
These statements represent a guide to the acceptable use of FishNet's facilities. FishNet recognizes as acceptable use all forms of data communications across its network, except where federally subsidized facilities of transport (such as national backbones like the NSFNET) may require limitations, or state/federal/international law prohibits. In those cases, use of network should adhere to the general principle of advancing science and education through interchange of information among researcher and educational institutions except where specific policy statements exist.
In cases where data communications are addressed to recipients outside of the FishNet supplied network and are carried over other regional networks or the Internet, FishNet users are advised that acceptable use policies of those other networks apply and may, in fact, limit use.
If FishNet is informed by federal/state/international authorities of inappropriate or illegal use of FishNet facilities and/or other networks, these determinations will be binding on the Customer.
Customer shall not use the FishNet Service for spamming, junk mail, bulk sending or posting of unsolicited messages, or any use of distribution lists that include people who have not given specific permission to be included in such distribution process.
Customer shall not use the FishNet Service to transmit any threatening, harassing, libelous or obscene material, or material of any nature which could be deemed to be offensive.
Customer shall not use the FishNet Service in a manner which violates any city, state, national or international law or regulation, or which fails to comply with accepted Internet protocol.
Customer shall at all times provide FishNet with accurate information. Customer shall immediately notify FishNet of any security breach in or unauthorized use of Customer's account.
Customer shall not attempt to interfere in anyway with FishNet networks or network security, or attempt to use the FishNet Service to gain unauthorized access to any other computer system. Customers shall not interfere in anyway with another Customers use of the FishNet Service.
Customer shall not resell, rent, lease, or grant a security interest in the FishNet services without the express written consent of FishNet.
FishNet retains the right to terminate any and all products or services provided to Customer if it determines that Customer has failed to comply with any of the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy.
