ActivTrak Acceptable Use Policy

ABOUT THIS POLICY

ActivTrak (the “Service”) is a piece of software used by business across the world. In order to maintain a superior level of service, security, and legality, we need you (the “Customer”) to follow this Acceptable Use Policy (the “Policy”). If you choose not to follow the rules outlined in this Policy and in our Terms of Use, we may suspend or terminate your service.

The Policy sets out Customers’ responsibilities when using our Service and confirms the steps we may take to ensure and monitor compliance with this Policy.

This Policy applies to all Customers and any users of our Service. Your use of our Service constitutes acceptance of the terms of this Policy.

LAWFUL USE

Customers must ensure that any use of our Service is lawful and it is their sole responsibility to determine what constitutes legal use in their particular jurisdiction. While we can provide general informational guidelines, we are not a law firm, so your reliance on any information provided by us is at your own risk. Seek independent legal counsel.

All Customers agree they will not use, attempt to use or allow the Service to be used for any unlawful or malicious purpose. Every Customer is responsible for their use of our Service, network and the operation of any systems or applications accessed or used with our Service. Customers are responsible  for  any  content  stored,  sent,  accessed or distributed on or via our Service and systems.

Any act that endangers any person or risks endangering or compromising the security or effective operation of our network, or any of our systems or equipment (or the network, systems or equipment of our suppliers), may mean access to the Service will be restricted, suspended or terminated.

When using the Service, we may require users to comply with rules imposed by a third party from which you access content. Where a supplier or third party provider considers one of our Customers is in breach of this Policy, they may require we prevent the relevant Customer continuing to breach this Policy.

The law requires us to comply with law enforcement or other lawful requests at any time without notice to Customers.
