- respect of User’s privacy;
- protection for the security and integrity of our Network;
- responsible use of our Networks, and;
- to comply with all applicable laws.
As the Network is shared by many Users, achievement of our objectives requires appropriate use by each User.

- sending any unsolicited email that could be expected, in our judgement, to provoke complaints;
- sending email that does not accurately identify the sender, the sender's return address, and the email address of origin;
- sending unsolicited email without identifying in the email a clear and easy means to be excluded from receiving additional email from the originator of the email;

Examples include improperly securing a server for use by others to conduct a denial of service attack, distribute spam, and improperly securing an FTP server for use by others to illegally distribute licensed software.
The Network may not be used in a manner that damages its reputation or goodwill; violates another ISP's acceptable use policy and/or its terms of service; or interferes with another User of the Network.
User data will not be used for any marketing purposes passed on to third party companies.
The resale of the Network as a service is not permitted.
13. Prohibited Activity
The Network may not be used to attempt an activity prohibited by this Policy or its rules whether or not such activity is successful.
14. Indirect Use
Users are responsible for the security of their own devices that are directly or indirectly connected to Our Network.
A violation of this Policy by a person having indirect access to the Network through another customer or User will be considered a violation by that other customer or User, whether or not such use is within the knowledge or consent of the customer or other User. As an example, resellers are responsible for the actions of their customers to whom they directly and indirectly provide services using the Network. We will address and attempt to resolve complaints about the actions of customers of a reseller without the reseller.
15. Responses to Violations
- To achieve the objectives of this Policy, We will determine, in our absolute discretion, whether a use of the Network violates this Policy. Whilst it is not our intention to monitor, control, or censor Users communications on the Network, when We become aware of a violation of this Policy, We may take such action as We deem appropriate to address the violation as described below;
- Violations of this Policy may result in a demand for immediate removal of offending material, immediate temporary or permanent filtering, blocked access, suspension or termination of service, or other response appropriate to the violation, as We may determine in our absolute discretion;
- Wherever feasible, it is our preference to give notice so that violations may be addressed voluntarily; however, We reserve the right to act without notice when necessary, and as We see fit. To the extent doing so does not interfere with our ability to achieve the objectives of this Policy (as We determine in our discretion), We will attempt to limit any filtering, suspension, termination, or other response to the addresses, locations, Users, or services with respect to which the violation occurs. We will not accept and will not have any liability for the actions We take in response to violations of this Policy whether proven as such or otherwise. The responses described in this Policy are not exclusive and We may take any other technical or legal action as We deem appropriate in the circumstances;
- We may cooperate with system administrators at other ISPs or other network or computing service providers to enforce this Policy or a policy of another provider. We may involve, and will cooperate with, law enforcement authorities if criminal activity of any kind is suspected. Violators may also be subject to civil or criminal liability under the applicable law.

18. Important Customer Information

Customers (and other Users of the Network) are responsible for taking such steps as they deem necessary to protect the security, integrity, and availability of their networks, systems, services, and information, and to restrict access to undesired content, sites, and services;
- We will not be liable to any customers or other Users of the Network for harm that results from violations of this Policy, even when We are aware of those violations;
- This Policy supplements, but does not supersede, the Conditions of Carriage (please see: Terms & Conditions) between Condor Ferries and its customers. A violation of this Policy by a customer will be considered a material breach of the customer's transport contract with Condor Ferri es and will result in its termination or We may apply other reasonable consequences. No refunds or credits will be allowed in connection with the consequences of violations of this Policy.
