You may not assign your rights and obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of AtoZwebs.net, which may be withheld at AtoZwebs.net's discretion. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties.

No provision of this Agreement may be amended or modified by you except by means of a written document signed or expressly assented to by AtoZwebs.net. All terms and conditions of this Agreement that should by their nature survive termination of this Agreement shall so survive.

Use and Misuse of Materials
Materials in the public domain (e.g., images, text, and programs) may be downloaded or uploaded using the Services. You may also re-distribute materials in the public domain. You assume all risks regarding the determination of whether the material is in the public domain. You are prohibited from storing, distributing or transmitting any unlawful material through the Services. Examples of unlawful material include, but are not limited to, threats of physical harm, child pornography, and copyrighted, trademarked and other proprietary material used without proper authorization. You may not post, upload or otherwise distribute copyrighted material on AtoZwebs.net'S servers without the consent of the copyright holder. Unacceptable uses of website content also include the presence of the following programs or the activities associated with them, regardless of whether or not any actual intrusion results in the corruption or loss of data: server broadcast messages or any message sent on an intrusive basis to any directly or indirectly attached network; attempts to circumvent any user authentication or security of host, network, or account; accessing data not intended for user; probing the security of any network; spawning dozens of processes; port scans, ping floods, packet spoofing, and forging router information; denial of service attacks, sniffers, flooding, spoofing, ping bombing, smurfs, winnuke, land and teardrop; promulgation of viruses; and IRC bots, such as eggdrop or BitchX. AtoZwebs.net 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, AtoZwebs.net 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 AtoZwebs.net 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; 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 AtoZwebs.net or elsewhere. AtoZwebs.net 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. AtoZwebs.net may disclose the usernames of accounts responsible for forged email messages to system administrators or users requesting the information. Violations of the AtoZwebs.net policies outlined herein can sometimes result in massive numbers of email responses. If you receive so much email that AtoZwebs.net resources are affected, AtoZwebs.net 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 AtoZwebs.net or at any other site. Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising security or containing viruses or trojans are prohibited. Examples of these tools include, but are not limited to, password guessing programs, cracking tools or network probing tools. If you are involved in violations of system security, AtoZwebs.net 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. AtoZwebs.net will also fully cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating suspected lawbreakers.
System abuse includes any use of AtoZwebs.net 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. Further, running programs in the background on a AtoZwebs.net server without AtoZwebs.net's prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat, IRC bots, and the like are not acceptable uses of AtoZwebs.net's servers.
