UICN Acceptable Use Policy
The following document specifies and describes the rules and regulations
While connected to any UICN server, you must comply with the following rules.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
1 - RULES
You must agree to abide by the following rules while connected to an UICN server:
By connecting to any UICN server, you hereby agree to comply with the Acceptable Use Policy as well as the policies of the individual servers, which are stated on each server's Message of the Day ("MOTD") (type /motd in your status window). The UICN IRC Network greatly appreciates your attention and compliance with these regulations.
2 - DISCLAIMER
The administration of the UICN does not log or monitor any traffic that may pass through their servers for content or clarity. By retaining a connection to any part of the UICN, you state that you know and are willing to comply and accept these as well as any future terms of service, network policies, and user guidelines.
No responsibility for computer damage, data loss, or any other related damage shall be implied by any UICN server administrator. By using any UICN server, you hereby state and agree that you release the UICN, its servers, administrators, operators, and any other volunteer of the UICN from all responsibility or legal liability which might result from your use of UICN servers.
UICN administrators reserve the right to deny access to and use of the UICN IRC network or any of its other resources, including but not limited to channel services, technical mailing lists, and FTP sites, to any user, group, site, or domain without the benefit of prior warning or notification if necessary.
Please remember that you are a guest on the network at all times, and you are expected to conduct yourself accordingly.
3 - CONSEQUENCES FOR VIOLATION
If you violate any rule or regulation stated in this document or on the MOTD of any UICN server, you will be subject to progressive disciplinary action, including but not limited to denial of access to any UICN server or the entire network, or legal action where applicable. Denial of access to a particular UICN server can be made at the server administrator's discretion. Your Internet provider may be denied access to the server or network if you successfully evade a ban.
The UICN IRC Network is under no circumstances to be used for illegal activities. Observed and verifiable instances may be reported to the appropriate authorities.
Although the UICN itself is a unmoderated forum, the UICN administration will cooperate fully with any officially recognized law enforcement body to the best of its capability when required to do so by force of law.
4 - APPEALING A VIOLATION
If you are banned or denied access to an UICN server or the entire network, you should follow the procedure outlined below. Please note, however, that UICN server administrators are under no obligation to take any further action if you are denied access.
Certain servers limit access to users from foreign countries to encourage users to utilize a server closer to their location. These bans will not be lifted. If your entire site (Internet provider host) is banned from a server, please contact your ISP administrator and ask that they contact the UICN server administrators themselves.
