GDNS Technologies Acceptable Use Policy
All customers of GDNS must adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy presented here. Violations of this policy will result in suspension and/or termination of services.
The GDNS Technologies Acceptable Use Policy defines the actions and activities which GDNS Technologies prohibits on their servers and networks.
The examples named in this list are non-exclusive, and are provided solely for guidance to GDNS customers. If you are unsure whether any contemplated use or action is permitted, please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you.
Customers are prohibited from transmitting on or through any of GDNS servers or network any material that is, in GDNS sole discretion, unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libelous, or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law.
GDNS servers or network may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of United States or state regulation or law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute.
The resale of GDNS products and services is not permitted, unless specifically permitted and documented in a written agreement.
GDNS has zero tolerance for Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) that is in any way associated with GDNS, its clients, or any of its client's associates. Customers are prohibited from using GDNS servers and network to distribute UCE. Infringements of this policy can result in any one of the following:
A warning from GDNS, via E-mail or phone.
Removal of DNS for the advertised / originating site or email address.
Temporary block on email forwarding or web redirection.
Permanent disconnection of service.
Infringements of this policy include, but are not limited to:
Sending mail to users who have not specifically requested to recieve such mail, including opt-out mailing lists.
Sending, being involved in sending, or employing a third party to send mail which advertises or mentions a site whose redirection URL is hosted at GDNS to users that have not specifically requested this mail.
Forging of message headers to mask the originator of the message.
If you are a reseller of GDNS services you will be held responsible for the actions of your clients in this matter, so it would be best for you to implement a similar or stricter policy. Please review the information at http://spam.abuse.net for more information on what constitutes UCE, or 'Spam.'
Harassment, whether through language, frequency, or size of messages, is prohibited.
These rules apply to other types of Internet-based message distribution.
General Online Communications
GDNS is not liable for the content of any communications or posting, other than those made by representatives of GDNS, whether or not the communication originated from GDNS servers or network.
Postings to public forums must comply with the written charters or FAQs for those newsgroups. Advertisements should only be posted in those newsgroups whose charters/FAQs explicitly permit them (see SPAM / Email Abuse). The poster is responsible for determining the etiquette of a given forum, prior to posting.
Customers are prohibited from posting the same or similar message to large numbers of newsgroups or otherwise flooding users with unwanted information.
Customers may not forward or otherwise propagate chain letters, whether or not the recipient wishes to receive such mailings.
Customers are prohibited from forging header information. This includes attempting to circumvent the approval process for posting to a moderated newsgroup.
Customers may not attempt to impersonate others in a public forum.
