determination of whether the material is in the public domain.

copyrighted, trademarked and other proprietary material used without
proper authorization. Pornography and sex-related merchandising, or links

iZone Networks supports free speech on the Internet and will not suspend or
cancel your account simply because it disagrees with your views expressed
at your website. However, examples of unacceptable activities include
posting private information about a person without his or her consent,
defaming a person or business, and knowingly making available code that
will have a deleterious effect on third-party computers. Where there are
allegations that your on-line activity has violated the legal rights of a
third party, iZone Networks will not substitute itself for a court of law in
deciding tort claims raised by the third party.
Unacceptable affronts to netiquette and unacceptable activities include,
but are not limited to, the following: Spamming (sending unsolicited
advertising to those with which you have no existing business relationship
and posting off-topic advertising in newsgroups); Spoofing (using a return
email address that is not the valid reply address of the sender or sending
an email message that does not contain enough information to enable the
recipient to identify you); Passive spamming (promoting a website hosted
by iZone Networks by spamming from some other source); trolling (posting
controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses); Mailbombing
(inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond or
sending large or multiple files to a user); Generating a higher volume of
outgoing mail than a normal user (over 10% of available system resources);
Propagating chain letters; and subscribing someone else to an electronic
mailing list without that person's permission. A message is considered
unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to
a recipient who has not requested the message. Making an email address
available to the public does not constitute a request to receive messages.
Distribution of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients
on a mailing list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not
be used to distribute unsolicited email. If you are repeatedly mailbombed
or attract such behavior, the Services will be terminated.
You should not send email to any user who does not wish to receive it,
either at iZone Networks or elsewhere. iZone Networks recognizes that email is
an informal medium; however, you must refrain from sending further email
to a user after receiving a request to stop.
You may not alter the headers of email messages to disguise their identity
or to prevent users from responding to the messages. iZone Networks may
disclose the usernames of accounts responsible for forged email messages
to system administrators or users requesting the information.
Violations of the iZone Networks policies outlined herein can sometimes
result in massive numbers of email responses. If you receive so much email
that iZone Networks resources are affected, iZone Networks staff may shut
down your mailbox.
You are prohibited from utilizing the Services to compromise the security
of system resources or accounts on servers at iZone Networks or at any other
site. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security or

include, but are not limited to, password guessing programs, cracking
tools or network probing tools.
If you are involved in violations of system security, iZone Networks
reserves the right to release all usernames of users involved in such
violations to system administrators at other sites in order to assist them
in resolving security incidents. iZone Networks will also fully cooperate
with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected lawbreakers.
System abuse includes any use of iZone Networks resources that disrupts
the normal use of its servers or services for others. Examples of system
abuse include running excessive numbers of processes or consuming
excessive amounts of CPU time, memory or disk space.

burden on iZone Networks system and is unacceptable. If your usage ever
exceeds 10% of system resources, your account may be terminated
immediately and without prior notice.

prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat,
