We’ve developed this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) to help our Customers understand their responsibilities when using our hosting services. It explains our policies regarding activities that may be harmful to our Users or compromise the efficiency of our hosting environment.
We may take preventative or corrective action, at our discretion, in response to any of the activities described in this AUP, along with any activities that contradict the spirit of this AUP or the nature of the Internet as an open, efficient method of communicating and conducting business.
To meet the changing needs of our Users, our business, the Internet environment and the legal landscape, this AUP may be revised at any time and we encourage you to review this AUP on our Web site(s) periodically.
If you feel you have discovered a violation of any area of our AUP (other than notices of alleged infringement by our customers or any court orders, subpoenas, search warrants, or other legal process, the email address for all of which is “email@example.com”), please report it to:

General Information. As used herein, the term “User” or “Users” shall include any and all users, Customers, subscribers, affiliates (including without limitations Customers or non-Customers to whom R1 Software provides links or banners to promote the services or products of R1 Software or any third party the services or products of which are offered by or obtained through or in connection with R1 Software), resellers or others (i) who sign up for, use or obtain services or products from R1 Software or from any third party services or products of which are offered by or obtained through or in connection with R1 Software, or (ii) who visit the Web site of R1 Software or of any such third party. As a provider of Internet/World Wide Web access, Web site hosting, and other Internet-related services, R1 Software LLC, (“R1 Software”) offers Users, the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial, and non-commercial information. R1 Software respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information, however, when there are competing interests at issue, R1 Software reserves the right to take certain preventative or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, R1 Software has developed this Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”), which supplements and explains certain terms of each User’s respective service agreement and is intended as a guide to the User’s rights and obligations when utilizing R1 Software’s services. This AUP will be revised from time to time. A User’s use of R1 Software’s services after changes to the AUP are posted on R1 Software’s Web site, under the Terms of Service section, will constitute the User’s acceptance of any new or additional terms of the AUP that result from those changes. One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use the Internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When Users or others obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that R1 Software cannot and does not monitor, verify, warrant, or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that users may acquire. For this reason, the user must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because R1 Software cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, R1 Software cannot and does not accept any responsibility for injury to its Users or others that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive, or illegal Internet communications. When Users or others disseminate information through the Internet, they also must keep in mind that R1 Software does not review, edit, censor, or take responsibility for any information its users, customers, subscribers or others may create. When Users or others place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation, and other harmful speech. Also, because the information they create is carried over R1 Software’s network and may reach a large number of people, including both Users and subscribers and non-subscribers of R1 Software, Users’ postings to the Internet may affect others and may harm R1 Software’s goodwill, business reputation, and operations. For these reasons, Users violate R1 Software policy and the service agreement when they, their users, customers, subscribers, employees, affiliates, or subsidiaries engage in activities described herein.
Scope. This AUP governs the usage of products and services of R1 Software or of any third party which are subscribed to or obtained through R1 Software (the “Services”). This AUP is incorporated by reference into each contract R1 Software or any such third party enters into with a User for the use of such Services. R1 Software may modify this AUP at any time without notice. In addition, this AUP is incorporated by reference into the Terms of Service applicable to the Web site of R1 Software so that no person who utilizes the Web site or services of R1 Software (regardless of whether that person is a User) may take any action utilizing the Web site of R1 Software that a User would be prohibited to take utilizing the Services.
Purpose. The purpose of this AUP is to enhance the quality of the Services and to protect Users, and the Internet community as a whole, from illegal, irresponsible, or disruptive Internet activities. This AUP applies to each User. Each User should use common sense and good judgment in connection with the Services. Parents or guardians should always supervise minors in using the Internet. Parents and guardians should remain aware at all times of what is on the Internet and how the minors under their care are using the Services and the Internet.
Users may not:
