Acceptable Use Policy

In order to facilitate their contractual relationship the Client and ICUSA wish to define a working protocol of principles and policies and establish operating guidelines and acceptable standards of use of the Internet.

To this end the parties agree as follows:

ICUSA's services may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute.

Client may not use ICUSA's network as to attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the Client, logging into a server or account the Client is not expressly authorized to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks in search of weakness, or violation of any other organization's security policy.

Client will avoid violation of certain generally accepted guidelines on Internet usage such as restrictions on mass mailings, mass advertisements, pirating or copying of software, mail bombing or other methods of attempting to deny service or access to other users, and attempts to violate security.

Client is responsible for validating the integrity of the information and data it receives or transmits over the Internet. ICUSA is not liable for the content of any communications or posting.

Client is required to protect the security of its Internet account and usage. The Client(s) password will be treated as private and confidential and not disclosed to or shared with any third parties.

ICUSA will not accept any Clients who publish pornographic images. If Client is found in violation, the Client's account will be terminated.

Clients will not be allowed to use excessive amounts of CPU processing on any of ICUSA's servers.

In some cases, an existing web site design and/or coding may not function correctly with ICUSA's servers. This usually has to do with a web site being scripted to work with a certain type of server or special server settings that are not required by ICUSA. ICUSA will not be held responsible for incompatible coding and may charge a fee if we are requested to fix the coding.

If Client chooses to have ICUSA transfer an existing website, you acknowledge that the site is ready to be moved without delay. The Client will supply ICUSA with a copy of the website via email or disk or the Client may FTP the web pages to our server directly. ICUSA will not be held responsible for lost web pages after the transfer had been made.
