Terms of Service
Updated 19 October 2001

Seagull Networks is an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Because we provide a wide variety of Internet-related services, we require our clients to abide by the terms of service (TOS) outlined below.

Spam
Spam is unsolicited email which is sent to individuals, usually thousands at a time. It is also the practice of posting inappropriate material to one or more Usenet newsgroups. These activities are harmful not only to the individuals receiving the messages but also to Seagull Networks. It can overload our equipment and disrupt service to our clients. Because of this, Spam is strictly prohibited. You may neither use Spam to publicize a site that we host, nor may you use our servers to send Spam.

If you have an individual or organization who has received Spam which appears to originate from our network, please send a complete copy of the message, along with all headers, to abuse@seagull.net. We will investigate the situation immediately.

Copyright Violations
Do not include any material on your web site which may contain copyright violations. If your site contains copyrighted materials, you must have the permission of the copyright holder.

Obscene or Indecent Materials
We do not allow adult-oriented web sites to be hosted on our servers, nor do we condone the publication of any materials which may be in violation of federal or local ordinances. Transmission of obscene or indecent materials may lead to criminal penalties.

Defamation
If your site contains any material which defames an individual, organization, race, color, creed, ethnic group, country, etc., you may be in violation of federal and/or local statutes. We do not condone these activities and prohibit our clients from publishing such materials on the sites which we host.

Network Tampering
Any client found tampering with our network or found using our network to tamper with another network faces potential civil and criminal penalties. Any attempts to crash our servers or otherwise disrupt service will lead to immediately termination of service and possible criminal charges. Illegal or unauthorized access (often known as "cracking" or "hacking") is strictly prohibited.

Other Activities
Any activities, whether lawful or unlawful, which are harmful to our operations, reputation, or other clients, especially activities which may restrict or inhibit others from using and enjoying the services which we provide, are strictly prohibited.

Seagull Networks does not monitor the communications of its clients to ensure that they comply with our TOS or applicable law. However, if Seagull Networks becomes aware of harmful communications, we may take any of a variety of actions, including termination of a client's account with Seagull Networks and notification of local law enforcement.

Seagull Networks wishes to emphasize that all our clients are required to comply with the above terms of service. In so doing, clients indemnify Seagull Networks for any violation by the client of these terms of service or of law that results in loss to Seagull Networks or the bringing of any claim against Seagull Networks. This means that if Seagull Networks is sued because of activities of the client that violate any law or this policy, the client will pay any damages awarded against Seagull Networks, plus costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.
