of free speech, certain activities that may be damaging to the resources
of both Get In Space and the Internet and cannot be permitted under

is used to violate the Acceptable Use Policy or our TOS, we reserve the
right to terminate your service without notice. We prefer to advise customers
of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action, however,
flagrant violations of the Acceptable Use Policy will result in immediate
termination of service. Our failure to enforce this policy, for whatever
reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of our right to do so at any

While we will allocate
our customers an "limited" number of
IP addresses, our allocation of IP addresses is limited by ARIN's new
policies. These new policies state that use of IP addresses for IP based
virtual hosts will not be accepted as justification for new IP addresses.
What this means to you is that you MUST use name-based hosting where

that clients are using IP addresses where name-based hosting could be
used, we will revoke authorization to use those IP addresses that could
be used with name-based hosting.

the inappropriate activity was committed by a friend, family member,
guest or employee. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others
do not gain unauthorized access to your account. In addition, you may
not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt
to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.
* Your password provides access to your account. It is your responsibility
to keep your password secure. ·

and may result in termination of service.
* You must adopt adequate security measures to prevent or minimize unauthorized
use of your account. ·

any host, network or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing
data not intended for you, logging into or making use of a server or
account you are not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security
of networks. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security
is prohibited. Examples of these tools include, but are not limited to,
password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools. ·
* You may not attempt to interfere with service to any user, host or
network ("denial of service attacks"). This includes, but is
not limited to, "flooding" of networks, deliberate attempts
to overload a service, and attempts to "crash" a host. · Users
who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability.
