Acceptable Use Policy
This Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is part of the Accellis Technology Group’s (“Accellis”) Master Services Agreement (the “Agreement”). All capitalized terms in this AUP have the meanings identified in the Agreement unless they are otherwise defined below.
You will use the Services in accordance with all laws, rules, regulations, and court or judicial orders applicable to you. This includes, without limitation, export laws and encryption regulations, personal data protection laws (including those of the United States and any other country, territory, or jurisdiction from which you collect or use personal data), and data localization and sovereignty laws.
PROVIDER MAY SUSPEND OR TERMINATE THE SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE AGREEMENT IF ANYONE IN YOUR ORGANIZATION VIOLATES THIS AUP. PROVIDER MAY REVISE THIS AUP AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY REASON IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. IN THE EVENT OF ANY SUCH REVISION, PROVIDER MAY, BUT IS NOT REQUIRED TO, PROVIDE YOU NOTICE OF THE CHANGE. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR REMAINING AWARE OF ANY SUCH CHANGES DURING THE TERM OF THE AGREEMENT.
You shall not use the Services to engage in or promote illegal or abusive behavior, including:
- Accessing, using or monitoring any data, system, network or Internet-accessible account that does not belong to you, either in any way that breaches security or authentication measures or otherwise without express authorization from the owner of that data, system, network or account;
- Interfering with the ability of any other customer of Provider to use or access the Services;

- Distributing any software without confirming that the user affirmatively consents to its download and installation; or
- Coordinating or participating in any activities that are reasonably likely to result in retaliation against the Services or against Provider, its officers, employees, or agents.

Provider may – but is not required to – monitor your compliance with those laws and regulations, and Provider may block the transmission of e-mail that violates those laws and regulations. In addition, you shall not use the Services to transmit or to facilitate the transmission of any communication to any person who has indicated that he or she does not wish to receive that communication.

- The provider may prohibit you from streaming any live events where, in Provider’s sole and unfettered discretion, there is a risk that the event may violate any part of this AUP.
- You shall not use any shared system provided by Provider in any way that, in Provider’s sole and unfettered discretion, unreasonably interferes with the normal operation of that system, or that consumes a greater than expected share of the resources of that system.

- You must have valid and current information on file with your domain name registrar for any domain hosted on the Provider network.
- If you register a DNS record or zone on any systems owned or operated by Provider for a domain of which you are not the registrant or administrative contact according to WHOIS records, then upon request from that registrant or administrative contact, Provider may modify, transfer, or delete that record or zone.
