Requirements to Use Splice

Here’s some important stuff you should know about our relationship.

As a provider of web site hosting, and other Internet-related services, Splice Digital Media offers its customers (also known as subscribers), and their customers and users, the means to acquire and circulate a wealth of public, private, commercial, and non-commercial information. Splice Digital media (also known as Splice) respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and circulation of information, however, when there are competing interests at issue, Splice reserves the right to take certain preventative or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, Splice has developed an Acceptable Use Policy, which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer’s respective service agreement and is intended as a guide to the customer’s rights and obligations when utilizing Splice’s services. These acceptable terms and conditions will be revised from time to time. A customer’s use of Splice’s services after changes to the terms and conditions are posted on Splice’s web site, www.splicedigitalmedia.com, will constitute the customer’s acceptance of any new or additional terms of the acceptable terms and conditions that result from those changes.

One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use the Internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that Splice cannot monitor, verify, warrant, or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that subscribers may acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because Splice cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, Splice cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive, or illegal Internet communications.

When subscribers disseminate information through the Internet, they also must keep in mind that Slice does not review, edit, censor, or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation, and other harmful speech. Also, because the information they create is carried over Splice’s network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and nonsubscribers of Splice, subscribers’ postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may harm Splice’s goodwill, business reputation, and operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate Splice policy and the service agreement when they, their customers, affiliates, or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:

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 Splice, but also because it can overload Splice’s network and disrupt service to Splice’s subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, Splice has the discretion to determine from all of the evidence whether the email recipients were from an “opt-in” email list.

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. Splice is required by law to remove or block access to customer content upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement. It is also Splice’s policy to terminate the privileges of customers who commit repeat violations of copyright laws.
Obscene Speech or Materials — Using Splice’s network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available pornography or obscene speech or material. Also, Splice is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through Splice’s network.

Defamatory or Abusive Language — Using Splice’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, mail bombing, 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 terms and conditions — Advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available any software, program, product, or service that is designed to violate these terms and conditions, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail bombing, denial of service attacks, and piracy of software.

Export Control Violations — Exporting encryption software over the Internet or otherwise, to points outside the United States.
Usenet Groups — Splice reserves the right not to accept postings from newsgroups where we have actual knowledge that the content of the newsgroup violates our policy.

Other Illegal Activities — Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards, and pirating software.
Other Activities — Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Splice determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill, or customer relations.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding the harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. Splice will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that they comply with Splice policy or applicable law. When Splice becomes aware of harmful activities, however, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including but not limited to, removing information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or take any other action it deems appropriate.

Splice reserve the right to from time to time audit the campaigns and material Customers are distributing through Splice Network. If reviewed material is deemed to not meet the standards set forth in this agreement, Splice will request the Customer make changes to bring the campaign and material into compliance. If Customer fails to make the necessary changes Splice is authorized to remove the campaign, materials or terminate this agreement immediately, without liability to Splice.

Customer shall comply with the CAN-SPAM Act or other applicable International SPAM laws for all campaigns, if Customer’s Affiliates are sending emails, then the Affiliate must comply with the CAN-SPAM Act and other applicable International SPAM laws when sending such emails with Splice code in the email. If partner or Affiliates are not in compliance as determined by Splice, Splice reserves the right to terminate this agreement immediately, without liability to Splice. Splice does not permit non-compliance with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act or other international laws governing SPAM. If Customer’s domain becomes ‘blacklisted’ and adversely affects Splice and Splice’ ability to serve Customer, Splice will take appropriate steps to assist the Customer in finding a resolution. If the SPAM agency will not remove the Customer’s domain and if a resolution cannot be found by the parties, Customer domain may be required to be removed from Splice’s IP space. If Customer does not remove itself from Splice’s IP space, then Splice reserves the right to terminate the Agreement (and Customer’s use of the Site and/or the Services) immediately, without liability to Spice.
