Acceptable Use Policy

As a provider of website hosting and other internet-related services, QUALIFIEDCHAT offers its customers the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial, and non-commercial information. QUALIFIEDCHAT respects that the internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information, however, when there are competing interests at issue, QUALIFIEDCHAT reserves the right to take certain preventative or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, QUALIFIEDCHAT has developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement and is intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when utilizing QUALIFIEDCHAT's services. This AUP will be revised from time to time. A customer's use of QUALIFIEDCHAT's services after changes to the AUP are posted on QUALIFIEDCHAT's website, www.qualifiedchat.com, will constitute the customer's acceptance of any new or additional terms of the AUP that result from those changes.

One important aspect of the internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the internet's openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use the internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When customers obtain information through the internet, they must keep in mind that QUALIFIEDCHAT cannot monitor, verify, warrant, or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that customers may acquire. For this reason, the customer must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the internet is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because QUALIFIEDCHAT cannot monitor or censor the internet, and will not attempt to do so, QUALIFIEDCHAT cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its customers that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive, or illegal internet communications.

When customers disseminate information through the internet, they also must keep in mind that QUALIFIEDCHAT does not review, edit, censor, or take responsibility for any information its customers may create. When users place information on the internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation, and other harmful speech. Also, because the information they create is carried over QUALIFIEDCHAT's network and may reach a large number of people, including both customers and noncustomers of QUALIFIEDCHAT, customers' postings to the internet may affect other customers and may harm QUALIFIEDCHAT's goodwill, business reputation, and operations. For these reasons, customers violate QUALIFIEDCHAT policy and the service agreement when they, their customers, affiliates, or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:

  • Spamming – Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the internet (known as "spamming"). It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward QUALIFIEDCHAT, but also because it can overload QUALIFIEDCHAT's network and disrupt service to QUALIFIEDCHAT customers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, QUALIFIEDCHAT has the discretion to determine from all of the evidence whether the email recipients were from an "opt-in" email list.
  • Intellectual Property Violations – Engaging in any activity that infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of others, including copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, software piracy, and patents held by individuals, corporations, or other entities. Also, engaging in activity that violates privacy, publicity, or other personal rights of others. QUALIFIEDCHAT is required by law to remove or block access to customer content upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement. It is also QUALIFIEDCHAT's policy to terminate the privileges of customers who commit repeat violations of copyright laws.
  • Obscene Speech or Materials – Using QUALIFIEDCHAT's network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material. QUALIFIEDCHAT is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through QUALIFIEDCHAT's network.
  • Defamatory or Abusive Language – Using QUALIFIEDCHAT's network as a means to transmit or post defamatory, harassing, abusive, or threatening language.
  • Forging of Headers – Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message.
  • Illegal or Unauthorized Access to Other Computers or Networks – Accessing illegally or without authorization computers, accounts, or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual's system (often known as "hacking"). Also, any activity that might be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e. port scan, stealth scan, or other information gathering activity).
  • Distribution of Internet Viruses, Worms, Trojan Horses, or Other Destructive Activities – Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending internet viruses, worms, trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mailbombing, or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service, or equipment.
  • Facilitating a Violation of this AUP – Advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available any software, program, product, or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mailbombing, denial of service attacks, and piracy of software.
  • Export Control Violations – Exporting encryption software over the internet or otherwise, to points outside the United States.
  • Other Illegal Activities – Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards, and pirating software.
  • Other Activities – Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that QUALIFIEDCHAT determines to be harmful to its customers, operations, reputation, goodwill, or customer relations.

As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding the harmful activities just described rests primarily with the customer. QUALIFIEDCHAT will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its customers to ensure that they comply with QUALIFIEDCHAT policy or applicable law. When QUALIFIEDCHAT becomes aware of harmful activities, however, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including but not limited to, removing information, shutting down a website, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the internet, or take any other action it deems appropriate.

QUALIFIEDCHAT also is concerned with the privacy of on-line communications and websites. In general, the internet is neither more nor less secure than other means of communication, including mail, facsimile, and voice telephone service, all of which can be intercepted and otherwise compromised. As a matter of prudence, however, QUALIFIEDCHAT urges its customers to assume that all of their on-line communications are insecure. QUALIFIEDCHAT cannot take any responsibility for the security of information transmitted over QUALIFIEDCHAT's facilities.

QUALIFIEDCHAT will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or received by its customers unless required to do so by law, governmental authority, or when public safety is at stake. QUALIFIEDCHAT may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, QUALIFIEDCHAT may disclose information, including but not limited to, information concerning a customer, a transmission made using our network, or a website, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation, or governmental request. QUALIFIEDCHAT assumes no obligation to inform the customer that customer information has been provided and in some cases may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, QUALIFIEDCHAT may disclose customer information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect QUALIFIEDCHAT and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system.

Privacy Policy

Our Customer's Privacy Is Important To Us.

Because we may gather certain types of information about our customers, we want our customers to understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it. QUALIFIEDCHAT's policies and procedures for handling customer information have been created with the understanding that internet technologies are still evolving and that internet business methods are continuing to evolve to meet the needs and opportunities of the changing technologies. As a result, QUALIFIEDCHAT's policies and procedures are subject to change.

In the course of serving its customers, QUALIFIEDCHAT acquires, stores and transmits customer communications and information that customers may regard as private or sensitive. Some of this information - such as the customer's name, address, telephone number, and credit card data - is provided to QUALIFIEDCHAT by its customers in order to establish service. Other information - such as the customer's account status, choice of services, and customer logs - is created and maintained by QUALIFIEDCHAT in the normal course of providing service. QUALIFIEDCHAT also uses cookies, which are small pieces of information that a website can store in a designated file on a user's computer for various reasons. In addition, QUALIFIEDCHAT may store customers' electronic mail and other communications as a necessary incident to the transmission and delivery of those communications.

Data Security

QUALIFIEDCHAT will protect the confidentiality of its customers' information, account information and personal communications to the fullest extent possible and consistent with the law and the legitimate interests of QUALIFIEDCHAT, its employees and other customers of QUALIFIEDCHAT's services. To protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information that is collected from customers, QUALIFIEDCHAT has appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place.

How is customer information used?

QUALIFIEDCHAT may use customer information to provide its customers with system information or information about new or upgraded products.

Opt Out & Modifications

Customers may opt out of receiving notices of new or upgraded products from QUALIFIEDCHAT by following the instructions contained at the end of the notice. However, customers may not opt out of receiving information from QUALIFIEDCHAT which is essential for maintaining or updating customers' accounts or system information.

If offered, customers may access and modify their personal information via their online personal control panel/account information page. Customers may access and modify their personal information by contacting the appropriate QUALIFIEDCHAT department.

Domain name customers who have registered a domain name with QUALIFIEDCHAT and wish to change the Technical Contact from QUALIFIEDCHAT to another company, may send a request to [email protected] It is important to note that customer domain name registration information is made publicly available in the registry of domain names.

Disclosure Of Customer Information And Communications

QUALIFIEDCHAT will not otherwise disclose its customers' personal and account information unless QUALIFIEDCHAT has reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, make contact with, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing harm or interfering with the rights or property of QUALIFIEDCHAT, QUALIFIEDCHAT's customers, or others, or where QUALIFIEDCHAT has a good faith belief that the law requires such disclosure.

QUALIFIEDCHAT also will not, except for reasons stated below, disclose to third parties the contents of any electronic mail or other electronic communications that QUALIFIEDCHAT stores or transmits for its customers. The circumstances under which QUALIFIEDCHAT will disclose such electronic customer communications are when:

  • it is necessary in order to provide service to the customer;
  • it is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of QUALIFIEDCHAT and its customers;
  • it is required to cooperate with interception orders, warrants, or other legal process that QUALIFIEDCHAT determines in its sole discretion to be valid and enforceable; and
  • it is necessary to provide to a law enforcement agency when the contents are inadvertently obtained by QUALIFIEDCHAT and appear to pertain to the commission of a crime.

QUALIFIEDCHAT disclaims any intention to censor, edit or engage in ongoing review or surveillance of communications stored on or transmitted through its facilities by customers or others. QUALIFIEDCHAT will, however, review, delete or block access to communications that may harm QUALIFIEDCHAT, its customers or third parties. The grounds on which QUALIFIEDCHAT may take such action include, but are not limited to, actual or potential violations of QUALIFIEDCHAT's Acceptable Use Policy.
