Sleek Networks provides Hosting and IP Services. By using our Services, Customers agree to comply with the Acceptable Use Policies (“AUP”) outlined in this agreement at all times and also to indemnify SLEEK NETWORKS against any claims by third parties arising from violation of this Policy.
Sleek Networks reserves the right to make changes to this Acceptable Use Policy at any time, and any changes will be effective immediately upon posting our web site: www.sleek.net.
Sleek Networks’ Customers are responsible for regularly reviewing the Policy. Continued use of the Services following any changes shall constitute acceptance of the changes.
Please note that in this AUP “we”/“us”/“our/“Sleek Networks” denotes Sleek Networks Ltd, Company Number 5611125, Registered Office Unit 4, Angel Court, Leeds, LS3 1BS, UK and “you”/“your” denotes you the customer or your agent.
It is your responsibility to ensure your compliance with all the provisions of this AUP. If you have any comments or queries, or there is any provision that you do not understand, or if you need any further information regarding this AUP, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is not possible to quantify exactly what constitutes “acceptable use” and “unacceptable use” or abuse of the Internet. These terms depend upon the many informal understandings which have arisen between the administrators, owners and operators of the computers and networks that together constitute the Internet, and of which SLEEK NETWORKS is only one participant among many.
We do not intend to actively screen, review, censor, edit or take responsibility for the activities or content of our customers. However, SLEEK NETWORKS’ relationship with other networks, and ultimately its connectivity to the rest of the Internet, depends largely upon proper behaviour by its customers. SLEEK NETWORKS cannot tolerate any behaviour by customers which negatively impacts upon its own equipment or network, or upon the use by other Users, or which damages SLEEK NETWORKS’ standing and reputation in the wider Internet community.
Therefore, it is important that when activity that might constitute abuse occurs Sleek Networks takes appropriate action – if it did not, and such abuse was permitted to continue Sleek Networks would lose the confidence of the wider Internet community, which in turn would significantly impair Sleek Networks’ customers’ freedom to use the Internet.
This AUP and its day-to-day application by Sleek Networks are a result of Sleek Networks’ consideration of both the formal and informal practices of the Internet community.
This AUP is intended to assist customers in understanding the types of issues that can arise and what SLEEK NETWORKS will consider to be unacceptable behaviour that does not conform to community standards. This AUP is not an exhaustive list and some behaviour may still be unacceptable even if it does not exactly match some point within this AUP.
We will investigate suspected or alleged breaches of this AUP and in doing so we will endeavour to act reasonably and fairly at all times. If you are found to have breached this AUP, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to take whatever measures we deem appropriate and proportionate to the breach. These measures may include a formal warning, suspending or terminating one or more of your Sleek Networks accounts, making an additional charge for our reasonable costs of investigating and dealing with the misuse, and/or blocking access to any relevant component(s) of our service to you. If we take such action then we may partially or fully restore your service, at our sole discretion, when the reason for our action has been addressed to our satisfaction; this may require a formal written undertaking from you not to commit any future “abuse”. All cases are, however, considered individually upon their merits.
Without limitation, you expressly authorise us to use your personal data and other account information in connection with any such investigation, including by disclosing it to any third party whom we consider has a legitimate interest in any such investigation or its outcome and a reasonable need to receive the data in question.
There are many forms of email abuse. This AUP discusses the more common forms in an informal manner, but is by no means an exhaustive list. Due to the practical problems caused by “spamming” Sleek Networks wishes to make it clear that it considers the sending of bulk unsolicited email, of any kind, to be unacceptable behaviour. Sleek Networks will always act when such behaviour is brought to its notice. Education, in the form of an email warning, can be the most appropriate response to a first offence, since customers can be unaware of contemporary standards. However, it is Sleek Networks' policy to terminate the accounts of any customer who continues to send bulk unsolicited email.
Using Sleek Networks Hosting Services in any way that adversely affects other Sleek Networks customers is strictly prohibited and will result in service suspension and termination. This includes but is not limited to:
Accounts may be terminated that include content or which have links to content that:
