It is contrary to IDNet policy for any of its Customers or other Service user to effect or participate in any of the activities listed below (whether actual or attempted and whether directly or indirectly) through a Service.
Each of the below practices (each, a "Prohibited Activity") constitutes abuse of IDNet's Services, Network and facilities and interferes with other Service users. Accordingly, these practices are prohibited.
ANY INDIRECT OR ATTEMPTED VIOLATION OF THIS POLICY BY OR ON BEHALF OF A CUSTOMER OR A CUSTOMER'S END USER, AND ANY ACTUAL OR ATTEMPTED VIOLATION BY A THIRD PARTY ON BEHALF OF A CUSTOMER OR A CUSTOMER'S END USER, SHALL BE CONSIDERED A VIOLATION OF THE POLICY BY SUCH CUSTOMER OR CUSTOMER'S END USER.
IDNet may suspend and/or terminate a Customer's Service at any time for any material failure of Customer, its representatives or its users to comply with this policy or for engaging (or permitting others to engage) in a Prohibited Activity (as determined by IDNet, in its reasonable discretion).
IDNet may deny all traffic from known IP address blocks that support indiscriminate port scanning programs, or other unlawful activity, for the purpose of preserving Customer's system and network resources. IDNet reserves the right to implement technical mechanisms to prevent a Prohibited Activity.
