Linking to illegal material is also prohibited.

All complaints of abuse, violation and misuse of the Services, whether described in this section or otherwise, shall be investigated promptly.

BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE AND HOLD MAKINGCOMPUTERS.COM HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS RELATING TO ANY ACTION TAKEN BY MAKINGCOMPUTERS.COM AS PART OF ITS INVESTIGATION OF A SUSPECTED VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR AS A RESULT OF ITS CONCLUSION THAT A VIOLATION OF THIS AGREEMENT HAS OCCURRED. THIS MEANS THAT YOU CANNOT SUE OR RECOVER ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER FROM MAKINGCOMPUTERS.COM AS A RESULT OF MAKINGCOMPUTERS.COM'S DECISION TO REMOVE MATERIAL FROM ITS SERVERS, WARN YOU, SUSPEND OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT, OR TAKE ANY OTHER ACTION DURING THE INVESTIGATION OF A SUSPECTED VIOLATION OR AS A RESULT OF MAKINGCOMPUTERS.COM'S CONCLUSION THAT A VIOLATION HAS OCCURRED. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO ALL VIOLATIONS DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT.

When MakingComputers.com becomes aware of possible violations of this Agreement, MakingComputers.com may initiate an investigation that may include gathering information from you and the complaining party, if any, and examination of material on MakingComputers.com's servers. MakingComputers.com, in its sole discretion, will determine what action will be taken in response to a violation on a case-by-case basis. Violations of this Agreement could subject you to criminal or civil liability.

Use and Abuse of Materials

You are prohibited from storing, distributing or transmitting any unlawful material through our Services. Examples of unlawful material include, but are not limited to, threats of physical harm, child pornography, and copyrighted, trademarked and other proprietary material. You may not post, upload or otherwise distribute copyrighted material on MakingComputers.com's servers.

Unacceptable uses of website content also include the presence of the following programs or the activities associated with them, regardless of whether or not any actual intrusion results in the corruption or loss of data: server broadcast messages or any message sent on an intrusive basis to any directly or indirectly attached network; attempts to circumvent any user authentication or security of host, network, or account; accessing data not intended for user; probing the security of any network; spawning dozens of processes; port scans, ping floods, packet spoofing, and forging router information; denial of service attacks, sniffers, flooding, spoofing, ping bombing, smurfs, winnuke, land and teardrop; promulgation of viruses; and IRC bots, such as eggdrop or BitchX.

MakingComputers.com supports free speech on the Internet and will not suspend or cancel your account simply because it disagrees with your views expressed at your website. However, examples of unacceptable activities include posting private information about a person without his or her consent, defaming a person or business, and knowingly making available code that will have a deleterious effect on third-party computers. Where there are allegations that your on-line activity has violated the legal rights of a third party, MakingComputers.com will not substitute itself for a court of law in deciding tort claims raised by the third party.

Materials in the public domain (e.g., images, text, and programs) may be downloaded or uploaded using the Services. You may also re-distribute materials in the public domain. You assume all risks regarding the determination of whether the material is in the public domain.

Email Usage

Unacceptable affronts to netiquette and unacceptable activities include, but are not limited to, the following: spamming (sending unsolicited advertising to those with which you have no existing business relationship and posting off-topic advertising in newsgroups); spoofing (using a return email address that is not the valid reply address of the sender or sending an email message that does not contain enough information to enable the recipient to identify you); passive spamming (promoting a website hosted by MakingComputers.com by spamming from some other source); trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses); mailbombing (inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond or sending large or multiple files to a user); generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (over 10% of available system resources); propagating chain letters; and subscribing someone else to an electronic mailing list without that person's permission. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to a recipient who has not requested the message. Making an email address available to the public does not constitute a request to receive messages. Distribution of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients on a mailing list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not be used to distribute unsolicited email. If you are repeatedly mailbombed or attract such behavior, the Services will be terminated.

You may not alter the headers of email messages to disguise their identity or to prevent users from responding to the messages. MakingComputers.com may disclose the usernames of accounts responsible for forged email messages to system administrators or users requesting the information.

You should not send email to any user who does not wish to receive it, either at MakingComputers.com or elsewhere. You must refrain from sending further email to a user after receiving a request to stop.

Violations of the MakingComputers.com policies outlined herein can result in huge numbers of email responses. If your email responses receive so much email that MakingComputers.com resources are affected, MakingComputers.com staff may shut down your mailbox.

System Security Violation

You are prohibited from utilizing the Services to compromise the security of system resources or accounts on servers at MakingComputers.com or at any other site. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security or containing viruses or trojans are prohibited. Examples of these tools include, but are not limited to, password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools.

If you are involved in violations of system security, MakingComputers.com reserves the right to release all usernames of users involved in such violations to system administrators at other sites in order to assist them in resolving security incidents. MakingComputers.com will also fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected lawbreakers.

System Resources Abuse

System abuse includes any use of MakingComputers.com resources that disrupts the normal use of its servers or services for others. Examples of system abuse include running excessive numbers of processes or consuming excessive amounts of CPU time, memory or disk space.

Running programs in the background on a MakingComputers.com server without MakingComputers.comís prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat, IRC bots, mailing lists that send more then 1,000 emails a day and the like are not acceptable uses of MakingComputers.comís servers.

Any usage of 10% or more of MakingComputers.comís system resources is an undue burden on MakingComputers.comís system and is unacceptable. If your usage ever exceeds 10% of system resources, your account may be terminated immediately and without prior notice. MakingComputers.com can set an additional domain name to be pointed to your site's IP address for a one-time $10 setup fee. Usage of scripts or other utilities to direct pointed domain names to subdirectories is not permitted and is grounds for termination.
