Post by Librarian » Thu May 20, 2004 10:29 pm

Lawful use



Visitors may not use the Library facilities and capabilities to conduct, or solicit the performance of, any illegal activity, or to conduct any other activity which infringes on the rights of the Library or any third party.



Inappropriate material



The Library accounts may not host or handle material that contains nudity, pornography, adult material, obscenity, discriminatory/hate propaganda, "warez", hacking-related material, material which promotes the illegal distribution of software, or any material that results in reasonable and legal based complaints from other visitors or third parties.



Intellectual property rights



Visitors may not upload or transmit any message, data, image or program that would violate the property rights of others. This includes the unauthorized transmission of copyrighted text, images, music, programs, or trade secrets or other confidential and proprietary information, trademarks, service marks or trade names used in an infringing manner. Visitors may not upload or transmit any information which is libelous or defamatory, or which violates or infringes on any right of privacy of any person.



Interference with service



There shall be no attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Library systems or accounts, disrupt service or network connectivity, misuse the Library facilities, or create fraudulent accounts.



Viruses



In the event that any virus or destructive element is found or furnished with any content, the visitor will use best efforts upon learning that such situation exists, to notify the Library as to the existence of any such virus or destructive element immediately upon discovery thereof, and the Library will have the right to take any steps it deems necessary to eliminate the virus or destructive element and to be reimbursed by the visitor for its related reasonable costs.



Unacceptable messages



The use of the Library servers as the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of unacceptable messages is prohibited. In addition, the Library may not be listed in any unacceptable message. The use of the Library servers to send or relay such messages is also prohibited. The Library defines an "unacceptable message" to be any mass message in any medium, whether solicited or unsolicited, which results in complaints from recipients of that message. Transmission of, or soliciting the transmission of, any "unacceptable message" will result in suspension of service until which time as complaints cease, or the immediate termination of all services, at our discretion. Any visitor who is repeatedly flamed/mail-bombed or attracts such behavior will have his or her services terminated. The Library's mailing list services are provided for use as discussion forums only, and may not be used to distribute unsolicited email. All users on a list must have personally subscribed to that list.



Visitor privacy



Please see our Privacy Policy.



Criminal prosecution



There are numerous federal, state and international laws regulating the use of the Internet. The Library will not hesitate to initiate criminal prosecution and/or cooperate with government agencies relating to misuse of the Library's services or systems.



Refusal of service



The Library reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at its sole discretion.



Library policies



The Library reserves the right to change its policies at any time for any reason.
