QWireless, LLC (QW) has published this Acceptable Use Policy as part of our overall effort to provide high- quality, reliable service to our customers; make their experience with QW and our related family of web sites positive and fulfilling; protect the privacy and security of our customers, systems and networks; encourage responsible use of QW’s and other ISPs’ resources; and comply with applicable laws.
This Policy describes the types of uses of QW services which are prohibited for being contrary to our objectives. To achieve those objectives, QW may, at its sole discretion, determine whether a use of its services of any kind is a violation of this Policy. While it is not our intent to monitor, control or censor communications of our clients and customers, when we become aware of a violation of this policy, we may take such action as we deem appropriate to address the violation.
This Policy applies to all customers and clients of QW and its services, and to all other users of the QW systems. This Policy supplements, but does not supersede, the contracts that customers and clients have with QW. If such a contract restricts a use of QW services that is not addressed in this Policy, the contract will govern with respect to such use.
Wireless services provided by QW are “best-effort” services. While QW is committed to making every reasonable effort to maximize available download and upload speeds and bandwidth availability, no guarantees are made regarding minimum speeds that will be received and speeds should be expected to fluctuate due to changing conditions, including but not limited to, weather, atmospheric conditions, general Internet congestion, network traffic, maintenance work or similar influences. Individual conditions at customer sites will also be a primary factor affecting speeds and connectivity, and QW makes no claims or guarantees related to conditions at customer premises, including but not limited to, terrain, foliage, third- party interference or other influences outside the scope of the QW network.
Uses of the QW IP Network described below are expressly prohibited under this Policy. These descriptions are specifically intended as guidelines for conduct and are not meant to be exhaustive.
The QW IP Network may not be used in conjunction with criminal or civil violations of state, federal or international laws, regulations or other government requirements. Such violations include, but are not limited to, theft or infringement of copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets or other types of intellectual property; fraud; forgery; theft or misappropriation of funds, credits cards or personal information; and threats of physical harm or harassment.
The QW IP Network may not be used in connection with attempts – successful or not – to violate the security of any network, service or other system. Examples of prohibited activities include hacking, cracking into, monitoring or using systems without authorization; scanning ports; conducting denial of service attacks of any kind; and distributing viruses or other harmful software.
QW customers are responsible for maintaining the basic security of their systems to prevent their use by others in a manner that violates this Policy. Examples include improperly securing a mail server or client so that it may be used by others to distribute spam, improperly securing an FTP server or client so that it may be used by others to distribute unlicensed software and improperly securing a router so that personal or business networks connected to QW services may be accessed and used in a way that violates this Policy. Customers are responsible for taking corrective actions on vulnerable or exploited systems to prevent continued abuse.
The QW IP Network may not be used to transmit materials of a threatening nature, including threats of death or physical harm, harassment, libel, and defamation.
The QW IP Network may not be used for the distribution of offensive materials, including obscene, pornographic, indecent or hateful materials.
Conduct Detrimental to the Network
Usage patterns that are found to adversely affect network performance and/or cause other customers’ services to be degraded are prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, sustained downloads or uploads over an extended period, excessive packet transfers, persistent use of torrents, peer-to-peer connections, speed tests or similar functions that consume a disproportionate amount of available bandwidth or provision of high-traffic hosting services.
Spamming is an unacceptable use of the QW IP Network. Spamming includes any of the following activities:
- Posting a single message, or messages similar in content, to more than five online forums or newsgroups.
- Posting messages to online forums or newsgroups that violate the rules of those forums or newsgroups.
- Collecting responses from unsolicited email.
- Sending any unsolicited email that could be expected, in the view of QW, to provoke complaints.
- Sending email with charity requests, petitions for signatures, or any chain mail related materials.
- Sending email that does not accurately identify the sender, the sender’s return address and the email address of origin.
- Using QW systems to violate another Internet Service Provider’s acceptable use policy and/or terms of service.
A violation of this policy by someone having only indirect access to the QW IP Network through a customer or other user will be considered a violation by the customer or other user, with or without the knowledge and consent of the customer or other user. As an example, “Smith Web Design” will be responsible for the actions of customers to whom it provides services operating on the QW IP Network. QW will address and attempt to resolve complaints about the actions of customers of Smith Web Design with Smith Web Design directly.
In addition, this Policy applies to any email or content transmitted by you or on your behalf which uses a QW account as a mailbox for responses or promotes content hosted or transmitted using QW facilities, or which indicates in any way that QW was involved in the transmission of such email or content.
The resale of QW products or services is not permitted unless expressly approved in a written agreement with QW.
Violations of this Policy may result in a demand for immediate removal of offending material, immediate temporary or permanent filtering, blocked access, suspension or termination of service, or other action deemed appropriate to the violation, as determined solely by QW. When feasible, it is the preference and desire of QW to give notice so that violations may be addressed voluntarily. However, QW reserves the right to act without notice when necessary, as determined by QW in its sole discretion. QW may involve, and will cooperate with, law enforcement authorities if criminal activity is suspected. Violators may also be subject to civil or criminal liability under applicable law. Refunds or credits are not issued in connection with actions taken for violations of this Policy.
Any complaints regarding violations of this Policy by a QW client or customer should be directed to [email protected] with “Abuse Report” in the subject line. Where possible, include any details that would assist QW in investigating and resolving the complaint (i.e., expanded email headers and a copy of the offending transmission).
Please contact QW by sending email to [email protected]
Revisions to this Policy
QW may modify this policy at any time, effective when posted to a QW public web site. Notice may also be provided via electronic or standard mail.
