2.1 General Responsibilities
Our AUP prohibits the following:
Impersonation / Forgery
Adding, removing, or modifying identifying network header information (“spoofing”) in an effort to deceive or mislead is prohibited. Attempting to impersonate any person or organisation by using forged headers or other identifying information is prohibited. The use of anonymous re-mailers and nicknames does not constitute impersonation. Using deliberately misleading headers (“munging” headers) in news postings in order to avoid spam e-mail address collectors is allowed provided appropriate contact information is contained in the body of the posting.
Attempts, whether successful or unsuccessful, to gain access to any electronic systems, networks or data, without proper consent are prohibited.
Threats of bodily harm or destruction of property are prohibited
Threatening or harassing activity is prohibited
The use of this service for illegal purposes is prohibited
The resale of any service without proper authorisation from Ogi is prohibited. Anyone wishing to act as a reseller of our services should contact our sales team.
Ogi services may not be used to create, transmit distribute or store any content which the customer does not own or to which the customer does not have the appropriate permissions. Ogi will co-operate with all agencies attempting to assert their rights in these matters.
2.2 Threats to the Network
Any activities, which adversely affect the ability of other people or systems to use Ogi services or the Internet, are prohibited. This includes “denial of service” (DoS) attacks against another network host or individual user.
Interference with, or disruption of, use of the network by others, network services or network equipment is prohibited.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that their network is configured in a secure manner. A customer may not, through action or inaction, allow others to use their network for illegal or inappropriate actions. A customer may not permit their network, through action or inaction, to be configured in such a way that it gives a third party the capability to use their network in an illegal or inappropriate manner.
You must not run “port scanning” software which accesses remote machines or networks, except with the explicit prior permission of the administrator or owner of such remote machines or networks. This includes using applications capable of scanning the ports of other Internet users.
2.3 Email and Spam
Ogi does not tolerate, endorse or participate in e-mail spamming. Sending unsolicited commercial e-mail is prohibited.
Activities that have the effect of facilitating unsolicited commercial e-mail, or large volumes of unsolicited e-mail, whether or not that e-mail is commercial in nature, are prohibited. Users operating mail servers must ensure that they are not open relays.
In the event that we are alerted to anyone sending bulk e-mails, we will generally attempt to make contact with the senders to discuss appropriate actions.
We recommend that anybody undertaking this kind of activity has a data protection statement on their Website explaining how the company fulfils their obligations in terms of the Data Protection Act and GDPR.
In the event of any problems being caused by this type of activity, we will make every effort to ensure that the problem is resolved as quickly as possible. This includes full co-operation with any relevant authorities.
