Greenlight provides data services that utilize third-party networks and other Internet resources. As such, we are bound by standards of acceptable use and are required to bind our customers to comparable standards. Therefore, the following Acceptable Use Policy shall govern the activities of all Greenlight data customers, and are considered an addendum to the Terms & Conditions.
Your use of the Service is governed by applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations, including without limitation laws relating to copyright, trademark, obscenity, defamation, the right of privacy, false advertising and fraud. In addition to complying with such laws and regulations, you are expected to use good judgment and be respectful of others. You must also use your best efforts to avoid interfering with the use of the Service by others and to ensure that you are following rules of proper conduct.
Greenlight does not exercise control over the content of the information downloaded or otherwise accessed by its customers. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the information transmitted and received complies with all applicable laws and regulations.
Although Greenlight does not exercise editorial control or review over the content of any communication made with use of the Service, it may monitor, block, filter, or restrict by any other means, any communications that, in Greenlight’s sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject Greenlight to liability, or may violate the Terms and Conditions. Greenlight may cooperate with legal authorities, third parties, or both in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong committed using the Service, Equipment, or both.
Greenlight is not responsible for any communication transmitted to you, or from you. You agree to indemnify and hold Greenlight, its officers, agents and affiliated entities, harmless from any liability for claims related to content including, but not limited to, email messages, blog or message board posting or other information published or transmitted by you, or to you, through the Service.
The following activities are considered illustrative (but not exhaustive) violations of the Terms and Conditions. Greenlight is the sole and final arbiter of what is an acceptable use of the Service. Without limitation, you will be in breach of this Acceptable Use Policy and the Terms & Conditions if you use the Service:
In the event you are aware of a violation of the terms of this Acceptable Use Policy, Greenlight requests that you contact Greenlight and provide as much of the following information as possible:
You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information, as well as the security of your network. You must adopt adequate security measures to prevent or minimize unauthorized use of your network or account. It is your responsibility to ensure that your network is configured in a secure manner, and you may not permit your network, through action or inaction, to be configured in such a way that a third party may use your network in an illegal or inappropriate manner. You agree immediately to notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you. Should any of your systems be violated, you are responsible for reporting the violation and then fixing the exploited system. You are responsible for any misuse of your account, even if a friend, family member, guest, employee or other person committed the inappropriate activity. Notwithstanding the prohibitions herein, this Policy does not create any rights in favor of third parties as against Greenlight.
Upon becoming aware of an alleged violation, Greenlight may take such action as Greenlight in its sole discretion may determine, including without limitation:
If, in its sole judgment, Greenlight believes that the Service or Equipment has been used to transmit or receive such communications or material, Greenlight may forward copies of such communications and objectionable material, if available, as well as any records related thereto, any of your communications with Greenlight, and your personal information to the appropriate authorities, and you hereby consent to such forwarding.
Greenlight has absolute discretion in determining whether a customer’s activities or use of Greenlight services are in violation of this Acceptable Use Policy.
