Defined as client based accounts on web servers administered by i7MEDIA, LLC.
Adult content is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, pornographic images, text, and sound files.
IRC servers, IRC bots, and Mush/Moo/Mud servers are forbidden.
Spam is strictly forbidden. Any instances of spam relating to your web site will result in account deactivation and a fine for each complaint we receive.

Hate literature, material in violation of copyright laws, and other illegal material are not permitted.
Your i7MEDIA account gives you the ability to send and receive electronic mail. i7MEDIA believes that electronic mail should be used for personal communication and not as a broadcast medium. The following examples are non-exclusive and are provided for your guidance.
You may not use your account to send unsolicited bulk or commercial messages (“spam”). This includes, but is not limited to, bulk mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements, charity requests, petitions for signatures, and political or religious tracts. Such messages may only be sent to those who have explicitly requested it.
Individuals who are operating their own mail servers should ensure that their systems are secured against external relaying to prevent abuse of resources.
Individuals who maintain mailing lists should ensure that their mailing list software requires confirmation of subscription to prevent malicious subscriptions to lists by third parties. In addition, messages sent to mailing lists must include information on the procedures necessary to unsubscribe from the list.
You may not use your account to collect responses from unsolicited bulk or commercial e-mail sent from accounts with other providers.
Forging, altering or removing electronic mail headers is prohibited.
You may not send numerous copies of the same or substantially similar message, nor may you send very large messages or files to a recipient, with the intent to disrupt a server or account (“mail bombing”).
You may not use electronic mail to harass or intimidate others. Harassment, whether through language, frequency of messages, or size of messages, is prohibited. Sending a single unwelcome message may be considered harassment. If a recipient asks to stop receiving email, you must not send that person any further messages.
You may not forward or otherwise propagate chain letters, whether or not such messages solicit money or other items of value, and whether or not the recipient wishes to receive such mailings.
i7MEDIA accounts may not be used to collect replies to messages sent from another Internet service provider if those messages violate this Acceptable Use Policy or the acceptable use policy of the other service provider.
If you use the services of another provider to promote a web site hosted by or through i7MEDIA, then the provisions of this Acceptable Use Policy shall apply to the methods used to promote such site.
Not every “flame” message or angry exchange of email or newsgroup posting can automatically be considered harassment. i7MEDIA is not responsible for the content or tone of any email or other transmissions of the subscribers to its service or other parties using the Internet. Subscribers or others should not expect that i7MEDIA will attempt to mediate or otherwise become involved in any particular disagreement or dispute between Internet users. The Internet is a network intended for use by mature, adult users. All users should recognize this principle and undertake at all times to act with respect, courtesy and responsibility, giving due regard to the interests and rights of other Internet users, groups, and networks. We expect and appreciate the use of common sense and good judgement while using the network.
Homepage, Web Pages, Web Sites
The customers, clients or users are solely responsible for any information contained on their homepages, web pages or web sites. However, if complaints are received regarding language, content or graphics contained on your homepage, web pages, or web sites, i7MEDIA may, at its sole discretion, remove the homepage, web pages, or web site hosted on i7MEDIA servers and terminate your service and/or your access.
You may not use your personal home page site to publish material that i7MEDIA determines, at its sole discretion, to be unlawful, indecent or objectionable. For purposes of this policy, “material” refers to all forms of communications including narrative descriptions, graphics (including photographs, illustrations, images, drawings, logos), executable programs, video recordings, and audio recordings.
Unlawful content is that which violates any law, statute, treaty, regulation, or lawful order. This includes, but is not limited to: obscene material; defamatory, fraudulent or deceptive statements; threatening, intimidating or harassing statements, or material which violates the privacy rights or property rights of others (copyrights or trademarks, for example).
Indecent content is that which depicts sexual or excretory activities in a patently offensive matter as measured by contemporary community standards.
Objectionable content is otherwise legal content with which i7MEDIA concludes, in its sole discretion, it does not want to be associated in order to protect its reputation and brand image, or to protect its employees, shareholders and affiliates.
You are responsible for any misuse of your account, even if the inappropriate activity was committed by a friend, family member, guest or employee. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not gain unauthorized access to your account. In addition, you may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.
For security purposes the listed account holder, and/or the listed account administrator are the only authorized individuals that may request edits, changes, or information for the account. Authorization to release information and/or edit and/or make changes from anyone other than the listed account holder and/or the listed account administrator must be received in writing. Your password provides access to your account. It is your responsibility to keep your password secure. Passwords must contain at least six characters, and should contain at least one number or symbol, should contain both uppercase and lowercase letters, and should not be based on any word found in the dictionary or on any personal information (name or birth date, for example). Your password should not be the same as your userid. Sharing your password and account access with unauthorized users is prohibited.
You should take care to prevent others from using your account since you will be held responsible for such use. Attempting to obtain another user's account password is strictly prohibited, and may result in termination of service. You must adopt adequate security measures to prevent or minimize unauthorized use of your account.
You may not attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network or account (“cracking”). This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for you, logging into or making use of a server or account you are not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of other networks. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security is prohibited. Examples of these tools include, but are not limited to, password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools.
You may not attempt to interfere with service to any user, host, or network (“denial of service attacks”). This includes, but is not limited to, “flooding” of networks, deliberate attempts to overload a service, and attempts to “crash” a host.
Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. i7MEDIA will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations.
