NIL’s Acceptable Use Policy

This Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) sets forth the principles that govern the use by customers of the Web-based products and services provided by NIL.

General Violations

This AUP identifies the actions that NIL considers to be Prohibited Actions (meaning those actions which create denial of access or impediment of service).

Prohibited Actions: General Terms and Conditions of Use

  • Copying/duplicating the Licensed Product or creating subsets or derivative databases from the licensed products.
  • Assigning, selling or passing along the Licensed Product.
  • Publishing or otherwise disseminating the Licensed Product or creating subsets or derivatives of the Licensed Products.
  • Providing services for a fee using the Licensed Product or any subsets or derivatives thereof.
  • Allowing data from the Licensed Product to be made available to others or downloading the Licensed Product onto any electronic storage media or distributing or transferring the Licensed Product or its derivatives in any form (printed, electronically relayed, posted to public list services or bulletin boards, or magnetically stored) to, or for the benefit, of others.
  • Unauthorized distribution of passwords and/or access codes.

Prohibited Actions: Impersonation/Forgery

  • Adding, removing, or modifying identifying network header information in an effort to deceive or mislead.
  • Attempting to impersonate any person by using forged headers or other identifying information.

Prohibited Actions: Network unfriendly activity

  • Any activities which adversely affect the ability of other people or systems to use NIL services or the Internet are prohibited. This includes “denial of service” attacks against the NIL servers, network hosts or any individual user.
  • Using any program/script/command, or sending messages of any kind, designed to interfere with a User’s session, by any means, locally or by the Internet.

Prohibited Actions: Access control and Authentication

This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the customer, logging into a server or account the customer is not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of NIL servers and networks.


NIL reserves the right to monitor Internet access to the NIL services by authorized User(s)/Licensee(s), as part of the normal course of its business practice. Should NIL discover User(s) engaged in Prohibited Actions as outlined above, which create denial of access or impediment of service, and which adversely affect NIL’s ability to provide services, NIL reserves the right to temporarily suspend User/Licensee access to the NIL Servers and/or services or Licensed Products. NIL shall make written/electronic notification to User or Licensee point of contact of any temporary suspension, and the cause thereof, as soon as reasonably possible. This temporary suspension will remain in effect until the Prohibited Actions have ceased.
