THIS ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY IS PART OF A BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN WISE AND YOU. PLEASE READ THIS ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY CAREFULLY. IN CONSIDERATION OF THE OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN WISE AND YOU, WISE AND YOU AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
WISE Corporation and its affiliates (collectively “WISE”) have designed its Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) to enhance the use of our fixed wireless broadband services and equipment (the “Service”) by our subscribers and their end users (collectively, “you”) by setting standards for acceptable use and preventing unacceptable use. This AUP forms part of the agreement between WISE and you; terms used in this AUP are used as defined in WISE's Terms and Conditions at www.wise.net.lb. All users of the Service must comply with this AUP.
For the benefit of all of WISE's subscribers, WISE prohibits the following activities:
Improper Use of the Service
You may not use the Service in a manner prohibited by local law or regulation. Without limiting the foregoing, you may not use the Service for any abusive purpose, in any way that damages WISE's property, or in any way that interferes with or disrupts our network or adversely affects other WISE subscribers. You may not attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, network element, or account (also known as “cracking” or “hacking”). This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for you, logging into a server or account that you are not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of other networks. 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. You may not use any kind of program/script/command, or send messages of any kind, designed to interfere with any server or a user's session, by any means, locally or via the Internet. The Service is intended for periodic, active use. You may not use the Services on a standby or inactive basis in order to maintain a connection. Pinging is prohibited.
Excess Utilization of Network Resources
The excessive use or abuse of WISE's network resources by one subscriber may have a negative impact on all other subscribers. Accordingly, you may not use the Service or take any action that will result in excessive consumption or utilization of the system or network resources, or which may weaken network performance, as determined in WISE's sole discretion. Such prohibited actions include, but are not limited to: using the Service to host a web server site which attracts excessive traffic at your location, continuously uploading or downloading streaming video or audio, Usenet hosting, or continuous FTP uploading or downloading. In the event that WISE detects excessive use by you, WISE may restrict your access to WISE's network, increase the fees associated with your Service, including upgrading you to a higher class of Service, or terminate your Service. See “Personal Websites” below for other options.
You may not use the Service to transmit or receive any material that infringes on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary or intellectual right of any party, including, but not limited to, the unauthorized copying of copyrighted material, the digitization and distribution of photographs from magazines, books, or other copyrighted sources, and the unauthorized transmittal of copyrighted software.
You may not use the Service to post, transmit, or disseminate objectionable material that is unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, hateful, or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any local or international law, order, or regulation.
You may not use the Service to transmit or facilitate any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail”, unsolicited bulk e-mail, unsolicited duplicative e-mail, and unsolicited commercial e-mail (“Spam”). WISE considers any unsolicited commercial mail to be Spam, regardless of the amount of mail sent, unless the recipient has specifically requested the information. An e-mail may be “unsolicited” for purposes of this policy if (1) the recipients' e-mail addresses were not obtained through a personal or customer relationship between recipient and sender, (2) recipients did not affirmatively consent to receive communications from the sender, or (3) recipients have opted out of receiving communications from sender when given the opportunity to do so.
You may not use the Service to make fraudulent offers to sell or buy products, items, or services or to advance any type of financial scam such as “pyramid schemes”, “Ponzi schemes”, and “chain letters.” You may not use techniques to hide or obscure the source of any e-mail.
You may not use the Service to impersonate any person or entity, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity. You may not use invalid of forged headers, invalid or non-existent domain names or other means of deceptive addressing.
You may not use the Service to transmit any material that contains viruses, worms, Trojan Horses, or other code that manifests contaminating or destructive properties.
You may not use the Service to collect, or attempt to collect, personal information about third parties without their knowledge and consent.
You should use your best judgment when posting to any newsgroup. Many groups have charters, published guidelines, FAQS, or “community standards” describing what is and is not considered appropriate. You must abide by such guidelines. You may not post or list articles which are off-topic according to the description of the group or send unsolicited mass e-mailings to ten or more people if such e-mail could reasonably be expected to provoke complaints from its recipients. WISE may cancel any postings that violate this AUP as determined by WISE in its sole discretion.
Use of Your Account by Others
You may not, through action or inaction, allow others to use the Service for illegal or improper activities. You may not permit your network, through action or inaction, to be configured in such a way that gives a third party the capability to use the Service in an illegal or improper manner.
You may not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell, or exploit any portion of the Service without WISE's prior written consent.
You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Service for the reconstruction of any lost data.
In the event that you violate this AUP, WISE may restrict your access to WISE's network, increase the fees associated with your Service, including upgrading you to a higher class of Service, or immediately suspend or terminate your Service. In the event of such termination, all applicable termination charges will apply. You should read this AUP in conjunction with our Terms and Conditions and our other Policies which are set forth on our website. WISE has the right but not the obligation to restrict any uses of the Service that WISE believes in its sole discretion violates this AUP, any part of the Terms and Conditions, or applicable law. You are solely responsible for all content that you transmit or receive utilizing the Service, and are responsible for abuse of your account by others.
You acknowledge that WISE may cooperate fully with investigations of possible illegal activity or violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. Subscribers who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. WISE may immediately suspend or terminate your Service if WISE suspects abuse or fraudulent use of the Service, interference with our network, or violation of the Terms and Conditions. You must cooperate with WISE in any fraud investigation and use any fraud prevention measures that WISE prescribes. Your failure to provide reasonable cooperation may result in your liability for all fraudulent usage.
WISE is under no obligation to monitor the Service, but WISE may do so from time to time. WISE may disclose any information regarding you or your use of the Service for any reason and at its sole discretion in order to satisfy applicable laws, regulations, governmental requests, or in order to operate and deliver the Service in an efficient manner, or to otherwise protect WISE's property or legal interests and those of its subscribers. To protect its customers and its network WISE may block and allow traffic types as we see fit at any time.
WISE requests that any person who becomes aware of a violation of this AUP report the information to WISE at email@example.com. If available, please provide the IP address used to commit the alleged violation and the date and time of the alleged violation. WISE may take any one or more of the following actions in response to a report: issue a warning; suspend the subscriber's newsgroup posting privileges; suspend the subscriber's account; terminate the subscriber's account; bill the subscriber for administrative costs and/or reactivation charges; bring appropriate legal action to enjoin violations and/or to collect damages, if any, caused by violations; or take no action. Third parties will use firstname.lastname@example.org to address infringements from our customers on their networks.
If you believe that your copyright or trademark has been used by a WISE subscriber without permission, such that the use may constitute infringement of your intellectual property rights, you must send your claim to the following: WISE Corporation, Attn: Copyright Agent, 6A – Tannous Tower, Dora Highway, Beirut, Lebanon, telephone: 01-249473 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
WISE reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify this AUP or any other Policy at any time, and any such revisions will be effective ten (10) days after posting on WISE's website, or providing written notice to you. Your continued use of the Service after such notice will constitute your acceptance of the modifications to this AUP. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK THIS WEBSITE
