Acceptable Use Policy


This Policy specifies certain actions prohibited by NIDAHO.NET, (NIDAHO)      for users of the NIDAHO Network. NIDAHO reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time to stay in compliance with any laws, regulations and security requirements. By using NIDAHO services, any customer, employee or third party unconditionally accepts the terms of this policy. 

 ILLEGAL USE. 

The NIDAHO Network may be used only for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution or storage of any material in violation of any applicable law or regulation coming to or from any unauthorized network or system is prohibited. This includes, without limitation, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property rights used without proper authorization; government and military data protected by law and national security; university and academic data protected by public policy; and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws. Any violation of the above which compromises the integrity of the NIDAHO Network or any other network is strictly prohibited. 

NETWORK AND MACHINE RESOURCES.

NIDAHO reserves the right to monitor and allocate network and machine resources. IP addresses are allocated per server and virtual server specifications. Cgi resources are allocated one per domain (a virtual host is required for each cgi-bin and is considered a virtual host). NIDAHO reserves the right to discontinue any script which may cause excessive server load.

SYSTEM AND NETWORK SECURITY. 

Violations of system or network security are prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. NIDAHO will investigate incidents involving such violations and may involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities if a criminal violation is suspected. NIDAHO respects the privacy of customer data and vigilantly protects that data and ALL customers who host with NIDAHO. If any violation of the law or this AUP is suspected, NIDAHO reserves the right to investigate. Use of the NIDAHO network constitutes consent to monitoring. Examples of unlawful acts, system, or network security violations include, without limitation, the following: 
 

EMAIL. 

Sending unsolicited mail messages, including, without limitation, unwanted advertising and informational announcements, is explicitly prohibited. A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site owner. Legitimate mailing lists and subscriber lists are acceptable. Otherwise, it is spam.

USENET. 

Posting the same messages to multiple newsgroups (excessive cross-posting or multiple-posting, also known as "SPAM") is expressly prohibited. 
 

INDIRECT OR ATTEMPTED VIOLATIONS OF THE POLICY, AND ACTUAL OR ATTEMPTED VIOLATIONS BY A THIRD PARTY ON BEHALF OF AN NIDAHO CUSTOMER OR A CUSTOMER'S END USER, SHALL BE CONSIDERED VIOLATIONS OF THE POLICY BY SUCH CUSTOMER OR END USER. 

For Example: 

If you are hosting a bulk email site on NIDAHO servers and you use another ISP to SPAM from in order to reference your NIDAHO site by IP address or domain name, you are violating NIDAHO policy and possibly the law. 

If you have been granted telnet access to NIDAHO servers, multiple telnet log-ons are strictly prohibited and you must come from a valid IP address. Forgery is against the law. 

Any type of denial of service attack from valid or invalid addresses is a violation of NIDAHO security policy and against the law. 

If you have been granted password privileges for FTP or telnet, sharing your password with an unauthorized user or third party is strictly prohibited.
