Acceptable Use Policy
When users disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that squirrelinabox.com does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its users may create. When users 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 created is carried over squirrelinabox.com's network and may reach a large number of people, including both users and non-users of squirrelinabox.com, users' postings to the Internet may affect other users and may affect squirrelinabox.com's goodwill, business, reputation or operations.

For these reasons, users violate squirrelinabox.com policy and the Service Agreement when they engage in the following prohibited activities:

Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information repeatedly through squirrelinabox.com's messaging system or repeatedly submitting similar posts to the system. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on attitudes toward HomePokerSystem.com, but also because it can overload squirrelinabox.com's network and disrupt service to squirrelinabox.com's users. When a complaint is received, squirrelinabox.com will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing. Furthermore squirrelinabox.com reserves the right to prosecute for this violation.

Obscene Speech or Materials:
Using squirrelinabox.com to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited. squirrelinabox.com is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through its network.

Defamatory or Abusive Language:
Using squirrelinabox.com as a means to transmit or post negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language.

Illegal or Unauthorized Access to Other Accounts:
Accessing, illegally or without authorization, accounts belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual's account (often known as "hacking"). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity).

Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses or Other Destructive Activities:
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment.

Other Activities:
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that squirrelinabox.com determines to be harmful to its users, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the users. squirrelinabox.com will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its users to ensure that they comply with squirrelinabox.com's policy or applicable law. However, when squirrelinabox.com becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down an account, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the site, or any other action deemed appropriate by squirrelinabox.com.

squirrelinabox.com will not intentionally monitor private messages sent or receive by its users, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. squirrelinabox.com may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, squirrelinabox.com may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a users, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. squirrelinabox.com assumes no obligation to inform the user that user information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, squirrelinabox.com may disclose user information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect squirrelinabox.com and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, squirrelinabox.com will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
