These Policies are designed in part to assist in protecting Customers, Users, Broadwave, and the Internet community from improper or illegal activity over the Internet. For the most part, the simply exercise of good judgment and common sense while using Broadwave should enable Users to remain within the purview of acceptable conduct as further described in these Policies. The categories listed below are by no means exhaustive and should not be interpreted as such.
A User may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to, or attempt to interfere with or compromise the normal functioning, operation, or security of any network, system, computing facility, equipment, data, or information. A User may not use the Broadwave’ network to engage in any activities that may interfere with the ability of others to access or use the Broadwave network or the Internet. A User may not use the Broadwave’ network to monitor any data, information, or communications on any network or system without authorization. A User may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the user accounts or passwords of other users.
A User may not use the Broadwave network to transmit unsolicited bulk commercial e-mail messages or deliberately send excessively large attachments to one recipient. Any unsolicited commercial e-mail messages or a series of unsolicited commercial e-mail messages or large attachments sent to one recipient constitutes Unsolicited Commercial E-mail “UCE” and is prohibited. In addition, “spamming” or “mailbombing” is also prohibited. Likewise, you may not use the Service to collect responses from mass unsolicited e-mail messages.
A User may not attempt to send e-mail messages or transmit any electronic communications using a name or address of someone other than the User for purposes of deception. Any attempt to impersonate someone else by altering a source IP address information or by using forged headers or other identifying information is prohibited. Any attempt to fraudulently conceal, forge, or otherwise falsify a User’s identity in connection with use of the Broadwave service is prohibited.
Any use of another party’s electronic mail server to relay e-mail without express permission from such other party is prohibited.
Users agree to use the Broadwave network only for lawful purposes. Use of the Broadwave network for transmission, distribution, retrieval, or storage of any information, data, or other material in violation of any applicable law or regulation (including, where applicable any tariff or treaty) is prohibited. This includes, without limitation, the use or transmission of any data or material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent, or other intellectual property right without proper authorization and the transmission of any material that constitutes an illegal threat, violates export control laws, or is obscene, defamatory, or otherwise unlawful.

The following activities are also prohibited: (1) attempting to intercept, redirect, or otherwise interfere with communications intended for others, (2) intentionally transmitting files containing a computer virus or corrupted data, and (3) any other inappropriate activity or abuse of the Broadwave network (as determined by Broadwave in our sole discretion), whether or not specifically listed in these Policies.
Rights of Broadwave
If Users engage in conduct while using Broadwave Services that are in violation of these Policies or is otherwise illegal or improper, we reserve the right to suspend and possibly terminate the Service or the User’s access to the Broadwave network. An Broadwave representative will attempt to notify you of any activity in violation of the Policies and request that the User cease such activity; however, in cases where the viability of the Broadwave network is threatened or cases involving UCE/SPAM, mail relaying, alteration of your source IP address information, denial of service attacks, illegal activities, harassment, copyright infringement, or other emergencies, we reserve the right to suspend your Service or the User’s access to Broadwave without notification. In addition, Broadwave may pursue other appropriate legal actions for violations of these Policies. Broadwave will cooperate with appropriate law enforcement agencies and other parties involved in investigating claims of illegal or inappropriate activity by Users.
