SKYTIP’s Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is intended to help enhance the use of the Internet by preventing unacceptable use. All users of SKYTIP’s Internet services (the “Services”)- those who access some of our Products and Services but do not have accounts (“Visitors”), as well as those who subscribe to the Services (“Customers”)-must comply with this AUP. We support the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and do actively monitor use of the Services. We may remove any materials that, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject us to liability, or which may violate this AUP. SKYTIP will cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong. Your violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or termination of either your access to the Products and Services and/or your SKYTIP account or other actions as detailed in Section 3.
Furthermore, any blog post, comments, forum posts, opinions and any other related material shared by an author, blogger, member or site user, is in no way an endorsement or recommendation of the SKYTIP.

Forgery or Impersonation. Adding, removing or modifying identifying network header information in an effort to deceive or mislead is prohibited. Attempting to impersonate any person by using forged headers or other identifying information is prohibited. The use of anonymous remailers or nicknames does not constitute impersonation. Using deliberately misleading headers (“munging” headers) in news postings in order to avoid spam email address collectors is allowed.

Activities that have the effect of facilitating unsolicited commercial email or unsolicited bulk email whether or not that email is commercial in nature, are prohibited.

Copyright or Trademark Infringement. Using the Products and Services to transmit any material (by email, uploading, posting, or otherwise) that infringes any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other proprietary rights of any third party, including, but not limited to, the unauthorized copying of copyrighted material, the digitization and distribution of photographs from magazines, books, or other copyrighted sources, and the unauthorized transmittal of copyrighted software.
Collection of Personal Data. Using the Products and Services to collect, or attempt to collect, personal information about third parties without their knowledge or consent.

Network Disruptions And Unfriendly Activity. Using the Products and Services for any activity which adversely affects the ability of other people or systems to use Skytip’s Services. This includes “denial of service” (DoS) attacks against another individual user. Interference with or disruption of other network users, 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 gives a third party the capability to use their network in an illegal or inappropriate manner. In addition, messages that are directed as hateful (“bashing”), mass (“flooding”) and other unfriendly gestures are not permitted.
Forums and Comments. SKYTIP Customers should use their best judgment when posting to any Forum or adding comments. SKYTIP Support and Help Forums can be a valuable resource if used properly. The continued posting of off-topic articles is prohibited. Commercial advertisements are off-topic in most Forums. The presence of such articles in a Forum is not indicative of the Forum’s “intended” use. Please familiarize yourself with basic SKYTIP Support and Help Forum netiquette before posting to a Forum. SKYTIP considers “multi-posting” to 10 or more Forums within a two-week sliding window to be excessive. SKYTIP’s servers currently limit the number of allowable “cross-posts” to 9. SKYTIP Customers may not cancel messages other than their own messages. A Customer may cancel posts forged in that Customer’s name. We may cancel any postings, which violate this AUP.

• firstname.lastname@example.org. If available, please provide the following information:
→ The IP address used to commit the alleged violation The date and time of the alleged violation, including the time zone or offset from GMT Evidence of the alleged violation with full header information provides all of the above.
