- Amplex Electric, Inc. (Amplex) exercises no control whatsoever over the content of information passing through our service. Amplex makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed of implied for the service it is providing. Amplex also disclaims any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Amplex will not be responsible for damages you suffer. This includes but is not limited to: loss of data, disclosure of data, non-deliveries, mis-deliveries, disk failures, lack of backups, failure of backups, or service interruptions caused by our negligence or your errors or omissions.
- Use of any information obtained via Amplex is at your own risk. Amplex specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through its services. Transmission of any material in violation of any US or State regulation is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Amplex from any claims resulting from your use of the service which damages you or another party.
- Sharing of dialup or wireless accounts is considered theft of services and may result in the termination of your account without refund.
- Except where Amplex has expressly agreed in writing to the contrary, customers are solely and entirely responsible, and Amplex is in NO way responsible, for the management and backup of all customer data, and all updates, upgrades, and patches to any software that customers use in connection with Amplex services.
- Using any Amplex account or server to send duplicative, unsolicited e-mail messages (commercial or otherwise), or to collect the responses from unsolicited e-mail (for example, by maintaining a spamvertised Web site), is prohibited. Amplex reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether duplicative or mass e-mail messages are “unsolicited.” A complaint from the recipient is presumptive evidence that the message was unsolicited. Amplex has no obligation to refer complaints to the sender or to identify complaining parties. Conduct that directly or indirectly encourages, permits, or relies on spamming is included in this prohibition. Examples include failure to implement technical or administrative measures to prevent mass unsolicited e-mail, or providing spam “support services” such as e-mail dropboxes or sales of spamware. Similarly, using any Amplex account or server to post advertisements or messages that violate the charter of any newsgroup or mailing list is prohibited. Amplex reserves the right to make the determination whether a given message violates the newsgroup or mailing list charter. In most cases Amplex will defer to the judgment of the newsgroup or mailing list moderator or administrator. Commercial messages that are appropriate under the charter of a newsgroup or mailing list, or that are expressly solicited by the recipients, are permitted.
- Amplex will not be liable for damages (or any other actions) due to the release of information when attempting to comply with requests that Amplex, in its sole discretion, believe to be valid at the time the disclosure is made.
- Amplex reserves the right to determine who our mail servers we will accept e-mail from. Services that send unacceptable amounts of e-mail that we believe to be spam or use excessive resources on our system may be blocked without notice.
- Any “denial of service” attack, any attempt to breach authentication or security measures, any intentional release of a virus or worm, or any unauthorized attempt to gain access to any other account, host or network is prohibited, and will result in immediate service termination, which may be without notice.
- Maintaining an open mail relay invites senders of mass unsolicited commercial e-mail to exploit the server by using it for spamming. Failure or refusal to take appropriate steps to close an open mail relay on Amplex’s network is grounds for temporary suspension or permanent termination of service.
- NO Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE) or Unsolicited Bulk E-mail (UBE) is permitted to be delivered to any domain for which Amplex serves as a mail (MX) host. If you violate this policy you agree to pay to Amplex Electric, Inc. the sum of $50.00 per message plus costs.
