ACCEPTABLE USE AND COPYRIGHT POLICY
This Acceptable Use and Copyright Policy (this “Policy”) describes prohibited uses of the web services offered by ART19, Inc. and its affiliates (the “Services”) and the website located at http://www.art19.com
(the “ART19 Site”). The examples described in this Policy are not exhaustive. We may modify this Policy at any time by posting a revised version on the ART19 Site. By using the Services or accessing the ART19 Site, you agree to the latest version of this Policy. If you violate the Policy or authorize or help others to do so, we may suspend or terminate your use of the Services.
No Illegal, Harmful, or Abusive Use or Content
You may not use, or encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to use, the Services or ART19 Site for any illegal, harmful or abusive use, or to transmit, store, display, distribute or otherwise make available content that is illegal, harmful, or abusive. Prohibited activities or content include:
- Illegal Activities. Any illegal activities, including advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available gambling sites or services or disseminating, promoting or facilitating child pornography.
- Harmful or Fraudulent Activities. Activities that may be harmful to others, our operations or reputation, including offering or disseminating fraudulent goods, services, schemes, or promotions (e.g., make-money-fast schemes, ponzi and pyramid schemes, phishing, or pharming), or engaging in other deceptive practices.
- Infringing Content. Content that infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property or proprietary rights of others.
- Abusive Content. Content that is abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography or bestiality.
- Harmful Content. Content or other computer technology that may damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, program, or data, including viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, or cancelbots.
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we ask you to do the same. This means that you must own or have the right to provide Your Content and Your Submissions on or through the Services, including having valid and sufficient license rights for Content owned by third parties included within Your Content or Your Submissions.
ART19’s policy regarding infringing content available through the Services that we become aware of is to:
- remove or disable access to material that ART19 believes in good faith, upon notice from an intellectual property rights owner or his or her agent, is infringing the intellectual property rights of a third party by being made available through the Services; and
- terminate the accounts of and suspend access to the Services by "repeat infringers."
ART19 considers a "repeat infringer" to be any user who repeatedly or egregiously infringes other people’s copyrights or other intellectual property rights.
No Security Violations
You may not use the Services to violate the security or integrity of any network, computer or communications system, software application, or network or computing device (each, a “System”). Prohibited activities include:
- Unauthorized Access. Accessing or using any System without permission, including attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a System or to breach any security or authentication measures used by a System.
- Interception. Monitoring of data or traffic on a System without permission.
- Falsification of Origin. Forging TCP/IP packet headers, e-mail headers, or any part of a message describing its origin or route. This prohibition does not include the use of aliases or anonymous remailers.
No Network Abuse
You may not make network connections to any users, hosts, or networks unless you have permission to communicate with them. Prohibited activities include:
- Monitoring or Crawling. Monitoring or crawling of a System that impairs or disrupts the System being monitored or crawled.
- Denial of Service (DoS). Inundating a target with communications requests so the target either cannot respond to legitimate traffic or responds so slowly that it becomes ineffective.
- Intentional Interference. Interfering with the proper functioning of any System, including any deliberate attempt to overload a system by mail bombing, news bombing, broadcast attacks, or flooding techniques.
- Avoiding System Restrictions. Using manual or electronic means to avoid any use limitations placed on a System, such as access and storage restrictions.
