This Acceptable Use Policy (this “Policy”) describes prohibited uses of the Services offered by Probax Pty Ltd, Probax USA Inc and their affiliates (collectively, “Probax” or “we” or “our”). The examples described in this Policy are not exhaustive. We may modify this Policy at any time by posting a revised version on the Probax website.

No Pricing Abuse

Probax provides competitive and varying wholesale pricing structures to its Customers in good faith. You may not violate pricing rules to deliberately take advantage of pricing structures to minimize your costs. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Veeam License Abuse. Sharing license keys across multiple end user accounts is prohibited. You must generate a license for each end user environment and correctly report the number of units being licensed (e.g. Virtual Machines). Failure to do so is a violation of this Policy.  
  • SharePoint Backup Abuse. As per the Office 365 Backup & Archive FAQ, each SharePoint user that has been granted access to the SharePoint sites you are looking to protect needs to be licensed (i.e. OneDrive/SharePoint user protection enabled in Control). Failure to do so is a violation of this Policy.  

No Illegal, Harmful, or Offensive Use or Content

You may not use, or encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to use, the Services or Probax website for any illegal, harmful, fraudulent, infringing or offensive use, or to transmit, store, display, distribute or otherwise make available content that is illegal, harmful, fraudulent, infringing or offensive. Prohibited activities or content include:

  • Illegal, Harmful or Fraudulent Activities. Any activities that are illegal, that violate the rights of others, or that may be harmful to others, our operations or reputation, including disseminating, promoting or facilitating child pornography, offering or disseminating fraudulent goods, services, schemes, or promotions, make-money-fast schemes, ponzi and pyramid schemes, phishing, or pharming.
  • Infringing Content. Content that infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property or proprietary rights of others.
  • Offensive Content. Content that is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography, relates to bestiality, or depicts non-consensual sex acts.

No Security Violations

You may not use the Services to violate the security or integrity of any network, computer or communications system, software application, or network or computing device (each, a “System”). Prohibited activities include:

  • Unauthorized Access. Accessing or using any System without permission, including attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a System or to breach any security or authentication measures used by a System.

  • Monitoring or Crawling. Monitoring or crawling of a System that impairs or disrupts the System being monitored or crawled.
  • Denial of Service (DoS). Inundating a target with communications requests so the target either cannot respond to legitimate traffic or responds so slowly that it becomes ineffective.
  • Intentional Interference. Interfering with the proper functioning of any System, including any deliberate attempt to overload a system by mail bombing, news bombing, broadcast attacks, or flooding techniques.
  • Operation of Certain Network Services. Operating network services like open proxies, open mail relays, or open recursive domain name servers.
  • Avoiding System Restrictions. Using manual or electronic means to avoid any use limitations placed on a System, such as access and storage restrictions.
 

No E-Mail or Other Message Abuse

You will not distribute, publish, send, or facilitate the sending of unsolicited mass e-mail or other messages, promotions, advertising, or solicitations (like “spam”), including commercial advertising and informational announcements. You will not alter or obscure mail headers or assume a sender’s identity without the sender’s explicit permission. You will not collect replies to messages sent from another internet service provider if those messages violate this Policy or the acceptable use policy of that provider.
