This Acceptable Use Policy (the “AUP”) applies to the use of the services of Atmosera and its affiliated companies (“Atmosera”) by its customers (the “Services”). This AUP supplements, but does not supersede, the agreements that customers or other users (“You”) have with Atmosera. The AUP also applies, and should be communicated, to each Atmosera customer’s own customers and/or end users that utilize the Services provided through the Atmosera customer. In the event of any conflict between a customer’s agreement and the AUP, the AUP will govern. By using the Services, you agree to the latest version of this AUP. Please read it carefully.
Atmosera has published this AUP to help ensure that the Services provided to our customers are of the highest quality, and to help protect the privacy and security of our customers, systems, and networks, while also encouraging responsible use, including compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, the AUP describes types of use of the Services that are prohibited. Atmosera may at its sole discretion determine whether a use of the Services is a violation of the AUP. Atmosera in no way intends to monitor, control, or censor communications or content that a customer may acquire, transmit, or store on or via Atmosera’s network. However, when we have knowledge of a violation of this AUP, we reserve the right to take such action as is necessary to address the violation, as referenced below.
As used herein, “Content” shall mean all information made available, displayed, transmitted or retransmitted in connection with customer’s use of the Services (including, without limitation, information made available by means of a “hot link”, a third party posting or similar means) including all trademarks, service marks and domain names contained therein as well as the contents of any bulletin boards, social sites or chat forums, and, all updates, upgrades, modifications and other versions of any of the foregoing.
The following are prohibited uses of the Services under this AUP. These descriptions are guidelines and are not intended to be comprehensive in nature.
The Services may not be used in connection with any criminal or civil violations of local, state, provincial, federal, or international law, treaty, regulations, court order, ordinance, administrative rule, or other government requirements.
The Services may not be used to transmit, re-transmit, host or store any Content or to engage in any activity that infringes or facilitates the infringement of the intellectual property rights or privacy rights of any individual, group or entity, including but not limited to any rights protected by any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, trade dress, right of privacy, right of publicity, moral rights or other intellectual property right now known or later recognized by statute, judicial decision or regulation.
The Services may not be used in connection with any attempt to damage, violate, facilitate or assist in the violation of the security of any network, service, or other system, data or Software.

Atmosera customers are responsible for maintaining the basic security of their systems to prevent use of their system in a manner which may result in a violation of this AUP, such as properly securing mail servers to prevent distribution of spam or other unsolicited commercial email (as defined below), and properly securing FTP servers to prevent illegal distribution of licensed Software. Customers also are responsible for implementing preventive or remedial actions on vulnerable or exploited systems to prevent continued abuse.
The Services may not be used to transmit, re-transmit, host or store materials or Content that is of a threatening nature, including threats of death or physical harm, or that is harassing, libelous, and or defamatory, invasive of privacy rights, or to provide information or assistance in causing or carrying out violence against any government, organization, group or individual.
The Services may not be used to transmit, re-transmit, host or store for the distribution of offensive Content, including obscene, pornographic, indecent, and hateful materials.
Spam is an unacceptable use of the Services and is a violation of the AUP. Prohibited acts include, but are not limited to, any of the following activities:
A violation of this AUP by someone having only indirect access to the Services through a Customer or other user will be considered a violation by the Customer or other user, whether or not with the knowledge or consent of the Customer or other user. In addition, this AUP applies to any email or Content transmitted by a customer or on its behalf using a Atmosera account as a mailbox for responses or promoting Content hosted or transmitted using the Services, or indicating in any way that Atmosera was involved in the transmission of such email or Content.
Actual, suspected or alleged violations of this AUP may result in a demand for immediate removal of offending Content, immediate temporary or permanent filtering, blocked access, suspension or termination of the Services, or other action appropriate to the violation, as determined by Atmosera in its sole discretion. When feasible, it is Atmosera’s preference to give notice so that violations may be addressed voluntarily; however, Atmosera reserves the right to act without prior notice when necessary, in its sole discretion, to avoid an interruption in Service or a negative impact on network capacity or performance. Atmosera may involve, and will cooperate with, law enforcement if criminal activity is suspected. Violators may also be subject to civil or criminal liability under applicable law. Refunds or credits are not issued in connection with actions taken for violations of this AUP.
Any complaints regarding violations of this AUP by an Atmosera customer should be immediately directed to the Atmosera Service Desk by calling 1- 800-207-0740 or sending an email to support@Atmosera.com. Where possible, include details that would assist Atmosera in investigating and resolving the complaint (i.e. expanded headers and a copy of the offending transmission).
