Acceptable Use Policy

These terms and conditions state important requirements regarding your use of EchoStar’s Internet access service and your relationship with EchoStar. You should read them carefully as they contain important information regarding your rights and ours.

If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you may not use the service and you must terminate your service immediately.


EchoStar may revise this Acceptable Use Policy (the "Policy") from time to time without notice by posting a new version of this document on legal.dishmail.net or any successor URL(s). All revised copies of the Policy are effective immediately upon posting. Accordingly, subscribers and users of the EchoStar Internet Service should regularly visit these web sites and review this Policy to ensure that their activities conform to the most recent version. In the event of a conflict between any subscriber or subscriber agreement and this Policy, the terms of this Policy will govern. Questions regarding this Policy and complaints of violations of it by EchoStar subscribers and users can be directed to EchoStar via e-mail at ExecutiveCustomerService@echostar.com, call us at 1-888-220-3474 or write us at DISH Network, P.O. Box 9033, Littleton, CO 80160.

It is EchoStar’s intent to provide our subscribers with the best satellite Internet service possible. In order to accomplish this task, we have adopted this Acceptable Use Policy (the "AUP" or "Policy"). This Policy outlines acceptable use of the EchoStar Internet access service (the "Service"), as well as permissible and prohibited conduct for using the Service to access the Internet. This Policy, including its subscriber use restrictions, is in addition to the restrictions contained in the EchoStar Subscriber Agreement (the "Subscriber Agreement"). All capitalized terms used in this AUP that are not defined here have the meanings given to them in the Subscriber Agreement.

It is the responsibility of all EchoStar Subscribers and all others who have access to the Internet access network ("subscriber," "you," or "your") to comply with this AUP and all EchoStar policies. As a Service subscriber, it is your responsibility to secure your computer equipment so that it is not subject to external threats such as viruses, spam, and other methods of intrusion. Failure to comply with these or any other EchoStar policies could result in the suspension or termination of your Service. If you do not agree to comply with all of these policies including the AUP, you must immediately stop use of the Service and notify EchoStar so that your account may be closed.

Note: WildBlue reserves the right to immediately terminate the Service and the Subscriber Agreement if you engage in any of the prohibited activities listed in this AUP or if you use the EchoStar Equipment or Service in a way which is contrary to any EchoStar policies or any of EchoStar’s suppliers' policies. You must strictly adhere to any policy set forth by another service provider accessed through the Service.

Prohibited Uses and Activities

Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to, using the Service or EchoStar Equipment to:

(i) undertake or accomplish any unlawful purpose. This includes, but is not limited to, posting, storing, transmitting or disseminating information, data or material which is libelous, obscene, unlawful, threatening, defamatory, or which infringes the intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or which in any way constitutes or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, state, federal or international law, order or regulation;

(ii) post, store, send, transmit, or disseminate any information or material which a reasonable person could deem to be objectionable, offensive, indecent, pornographic, harassing, threatening, embarrassing, distressing, vulgar, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or otherwise inappropriate, regardless of whether this material or its dissemination is unlawful;

(iii) access any other person's computer or computer system, software, or data without their knowledge and consent; breach the security of another user; or attempt to circumvent the user authentication or security of any host, network, or account.

(viii) restrict, inhibit, interfere with, or otherwise disrupt or cause a performance degradation, regardless of intent, purpose or knowledge, to the Service or any EchoStar (or EchoStar supplier) host, server, backbone network, node or service, or otherwise cause a performance degradation to any EchoStar (or EchoStar supplier) facilities used to deliver the Service;

(ix) resell the Service or otherwise make available to anyone outside the Premises the ability to use the Service (i.e. wi-fi, or other methods of networking), in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, or on a bundled or unbundled basis. The Service is for personal and non-commercial use only and you agree not to use the Service for operation as an Internet service provider or for any business enterprise or purpose, or as an end-point on a non-EchoStar local area network or wide area network;

(x) connect multiple computers behind the cable modem to set up a LAN (Local Area Network) that in any manner would result in a violation of the terms of this Policy or an applicable Service plan;

(xiii) distribute programs that remove locks or time-outs built into software (cracks);

(xiv) run programs, equipment, or servers from the Premises that provide network content or any other services to anyone outside of your Premises LAN (Local Area Network), also commonly referred to as public services or servers.

(xv) initiate, perpetuate, or in any way participate in any pyramid or other illegal soliciting scheme;

(xviii) impersonate any person or entity, engage in sender address falsification, forge anyone else's digital or manual signature, forge any TCP/IP packet header (or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting) or gain access to any account or computer resource not belonging to you (e.g., "spoofing") or otherwise hack, crack into, monitor, access, use, probe, or scan without authorization any system, network, data, traffic or security authentication measure or perform any other similar fraudulent activity;

(xix) service, alter, modify, or tamper with the EchoStar Equipment or Service or permit any other person to do the same who is not authorized by WildBlue;

(xx) connect the EchoStar Equipment to any computer outside of your Premises;

(xxi) collect, or attempt to collect, personal information about third parties without their consent;

(xxii) interfere with computer networking or telecommunications service to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, denial of service attacks, flooding of a network, overloading a service, improper seizing and abuse of operator privileges and attempts to "crash" a host; and

(xxiii) violate the rules, regulations, or policies applicable to any network, server, computer database, or Web site that you access.

Security

You are responsible for any misuse of the Service, even if the misuse was committed by a friend, family member, or guest with access to your Service account. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not use your account to gain unauthorized access to the Service by, for example, strictly maintaining the confidentiality of your Service login and password. In all cases, you are solely responsible for the security of any device you choose to connect to the Service, including any data stored or shared on that device. Account functions such as verifying and maintaining the account, options and settings, must be performed by a person at least 18 years of age, without exception. EchoStar recommends against enabling file or printer sharing of any sort unless you do so in strict compliance with all security recommendations and features provided by EchoStar and the manufacturer of the applicable file or printer sharing devices. Any files or devices you choose to make available for shared access on a home LAN, for example, should be protected with a strong password or as otherwise appropriate.

Inappropriate Content and Transmissions

EchoStar reserves the right, but not the obligation, to refuse to transmit or post and to remove or block any information or materials, in whole or in part, that it, in its sole discretion, deems to be offensive, indecent, or otherwise inappropriate, regardless of whether this material or its dissemination is unlawful. Neither EchoStar nor any of its affiliates, suppliers, or agents have any obligation to monitor transmissions or postings (including, but not limited to, e-mail, newsgroup, and instant message transmissions as well as materials available on the Personal Web Pages and Online Storage features) made on the Service. However, EchoStar and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents have the right to monitor these transmissions and postings from time to time for violations of this Policy and to disclose, block, or remove them in accordance with the Subscriber Agreement and any other applicable agreements and policies.

Electronic Mail

The Service may not be used to send unsolicited bulk or commercial messages and may not be used to collect responses from unsolicited e-mail sent from accounts on other Internet hosts or e-mail services that violate this Policy or the acceptable use policy of any other Internet service provider. Moreover, unsolicited e-mail may not direct the recipient to any Web site or other resource that uses the Service. Activities that have the effect of facilitating unsolicited commercial e-mail or unsolicited bulk e-mail, whether or not the e-mail is commercial in nature, are prohibited. Forging, altering, or removing electronic mail headers is prohibited. You may not reference EchoStar or the EchoStar or WildBlue network (e.g. by including "Organization: WildBlue" in the header or by listing an IP address that belongs to EchoStar or WildBlue) in any unsolicited e-mail even if that e-mail is not sent through the network or Service.

EchoStar is not responsible for forwarding e-mail sent to any account that has been suspended or terminated. This e-mail will be returned to the sender, ignored, deleted, or stored temporarily at EchoStar 's sole discretion. If EchoStar believes in its sole discretion that any subscriber name, account name, or e-mail address (collectively, an "identifier") on the Service may be used for, or is being used for, any misleading, fraudulent, or other improper or illegal purpose, EchoStar (i) reserves the right to block access to and prevent the use of any such identifier and (ii) may at any time require any subscriber to change his or her identifier. In addition, EchoStar may at any time reserve any identifiers on the Service for EchoStar 's own purposes.

Newsgroups

Messages posted to newsgroups must comply with the written charters or FAQs for those newsgroups as well as any other terms and conditions applicable to any particular newsgroups or provider of newsgroups. Advertisements, solicitations, or other commercial messages should be posted only in those newsgroups whose charters or FAQs explicitly permit them. You are responsible for determining the policies of a given newsgroup before posting to it. EchoStar reserves the right to discontinue access to any newsgroup at any time for any reason. EchoStar permits users of the Service to download a maximum of one gigabyte (1GB) of newsgroup content in any one month, unless users are subject to a Service plan that permits downloading more newsgroup content.

Instant Messages

Users alone are responsible for the contents of their instant messages and the consequences of any instant messages. EchoStar assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, mis-delivery, deletion or failure to store instant messages.

Personal Web Page and File Storage

As part of the Service, EchoStar provides you with access to personal Web pages and storage space through the Google Sites feature. You are solely responsible for any information that you or others publish or store on Google Sites. You must ensure that the intended recipient of any content made available through Google Sites is appropriate. For example, you must take appropriate precautions to prevent minors from receiving or accessing inappropriate content. EchoStar reserves the right to remove, block, or refuse to post or store any information or materials, in whole or in part, that it, in its sole discretion, deem to be offensive, indecent, or otherwise inappropriate regardless of whether this material or its dissemination is unlawful. This includes, but is not limited to: obscene material; defamatory, fraudulent or deceptive statements; threatening, intimidating or harassing statements, or material that violates the privacy rights or property rights of others (copyrights or trademarks, for example). For purposes of this Policy, "material" refers to all forms of communications including narrative descriptions, graphics (including photographs, illustrations, images, drawings, logos), executable programs and scripts, video recordings, and audio recordings. EchoStar may remove or block content contained on your Google Sites pages and terminate your Google Sites pages and/or your use of the Service if we determine that you have violated the terms of this Policy.

Network, Bandwidth, Data Storage and Other Limitations

You must comply with all current bandwidth, data storage, and other limitations on the Service established by EchoStar and its suppliers. In addition, you may only access and use the Service with a dynamic Internet Protocol ("IP") address that adheres to the dynamic host configuration protocol ("DHCP"). You may not access or use the Service with a static IP address or using any protocol other than DHCP unless you are subject to a Service plan that expressly permits otherwise.

You must ensure that your activity (including, but not limited to, use made by you or others of Google Sites) does not improperly restrict, inhibit, or degrade any other user's use of the Service, nor represent (in the sole judgment of EchoStar) an unusually large burden on the network. In addition, you must ensure that your activities do not improperly restrict, inhibit, disrupt, degrade or impede EchoStar 's ability to deliver the Service and monitor the Service, backbone, network nodes, and/or other network Services.

Copyright Infringement

EchoStar is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all subscribers and users of the Service to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content on, or disseminate any material or content over, the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") to report alleged infringements. It is EchoStar 's policy in accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws to reserve the right to terminate the Service provided to any subscriber or user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who EchoStar believes in its sole discretion is infringing these rights. EchoStar may terminate the Service at any time with or without notice for any affected subscriber or user.

Copyright owners may report alleged infringements of their works that are stored on the Service or Google Sites by sending EchoStar 's authorized agent a notification of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA. Upon EchoStar 's receipt of a satisfactory notice of claimed infringement for these works, EchoStar will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) stored on the Service or Google Sites or (ii) disable access to the work(s). EchoStar will also notify the affected subscriber or user of the Service of the removal or disabling of access to the work(s). If the affected subscriber or user believes in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then that person may send a counter notification to EchoStar. Upon EchoStar 's receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of DMCA, WildBlue will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA's procedures with respect to a received counter notification. In all events, you expressly agree that EchoStar will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.

Copyright owners may send EchoStar a notification of claimed infringement to report alleged infringements of their works to:

EchoStar
Attention: Legal Department, Dana Steele
9601 S. Meridian Blvd.
Englewood, CO 80112.

A Notification of Claimed Infringement is at the end of this policy.

Copyright owners may view and print a notification of claimed infringement form (see above) format. Complete the form and return it to EchoStar. EchoStar doesn't require that you use this form, and copyright owners may use their own notification of claimed infringement form that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Under the DMCA anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to EchoStar, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.

If a notification of claimed infringement has been filed against you, you can file a counter notification with EchoStar's designated agent using the contact information shown above. All counter notifications must satisfy the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act.

EchoStar does not routinely monitor the activity of Service accounts for violation of this AUP. However, in our efforts to promote good citizenship within the Internet community, we will respond appropriately if we become aware of inappropriate use of our Service. Although EchoStar has no obligation to monitor the Service and/or the network, EchoStar and its suppliers reserve the right at any time to monitor bandwidth, usage, transmissions, and content from time to time to operate the Service; to identify violations of this Policy; and/or to protect the network, the Service and EchoStar users.

EchoStar prefers to advise subscribers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action. However, if the Service is used in a way that EchoStar or its suppliers, in their sole discretion, believe violate this AUP, EchoStar or its suppliers may take any responsive actions they deem appropriate. These actions include, but are not limited to, temporary or permanent removal of content, cancellation of newsgroup posts, filtering of Internet transmissions, and the immediate suspension or termination of all or any portion of the Service. Neither EchoStar nor its affiliates, suppliers, or agents will have any liability for any these responsive actions. These actions are not EchoStar's exclusive remedies and EchoStar may take any other legal or technical action it deems appropriate.

EchoStar reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this AUP, including the gathering of information from the user or users involved and the complaining party, if any, and examination of material on EchoStar's servers and network. During an investigation, EchoStar may suspend the account or accounts involved and/or remove or block material that potentially violates this Policy. You expressly authorize EchoStar and its suppliers to cooperate with (i) law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected legal violations, and (ii) and system administrators at other Internet service providers or other network or computing facilities in order to enforce this Policy. This cooperation may include EchoStar providing available personally identifiable information about you to law enforcement or system administrators, including, but not limited to, username, subscriber name, and other account information. Upon termination of your account, EchoStar is authorized to delete any files, programs, data and e-mail messages associated with your account.

The failure of EchoStar or its suppliers to enforce this AUP, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of any right to do so at any time. You agree that if any portion of this Policy is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.

The provisions of this Policy are not meant to be exhaustive. Generally, conduct that violates law, regulation, or the accepted norms and ethics of the Internet community or the community at large, whether or not expressly mentioned in this Policy, is prohibited. We reserve the right at all times to prohibit activities that damage our commercial reputation and goodwill or affect the quality of our services or our ability to provide services.

You shall comply with all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations, including those related to data privacy, international communications, and exportation or technical or personal data. You represent that you are not a specifically designated individual or entity under any US embargo or otherwise the subject, either directly or indirectly (by affiliation, or any other connection with another party) to any order issued by any agency of the US Government limiting, barring, revoking or denying, in whole or in part your US export privileges. You agree to notify EchoStar if you become subject to any such order.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless EchoStar and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents against all claims and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) resulting from you engaging in any of the prohibited activities listed in this AUP or resulting from your violation of the AUP or of any other posted EchoStar policy related to the Service. Your indemnification will survive any termination of the Subscriber Agreement.

ALL LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS STATED IN THIS PARAGRAPH ALSO APPLY TO WILDBLUE’S THIRD PARTY LICENSORS, PROVIDERS AND SUPPLIERS, AS THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES OF THIS AGREEMENT.

ANY RIGHTS OR LIMITS STATED HEREIN ARE THE MAXIMUM FOR WHICH ECHOSTAR, WILDBLUE (AND EACH OF THEIR OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES, AND AFFILIATES), ECHOSTAR’S THIRD PARTY LICENSORS, PROVIDERS AND SUPPLIERS ARE COLLECTIVELY RESPONSIBLE.

THE REMEDIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES. YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS UNDER CERTAIN LAWS (SUCH AS CONSUMER LAWS), WHICH DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY, OUR EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

ECHOSTAR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY AND ALL LEGAL AND EQUITABLE CLAIMS AGAINST YOU PERTAINING TO YOUR USE OR MISUSE OF THE SERVICE OR FOR YOUR BREACH OF THE AGREEMENT (INCLUDING ANY POLICIES RELATING TO THE SERVICE.)

Internet Provisions

EchoStar does not endorse or in any way vouch for the accuracy, completeness, truthfulness or reliability of any service, opinion, advice, communication, information or other content on or made available through the Service. None of such content should be construed or understood to constitute or reflect the views or approval of EchoStar or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. We do not recommend that such content be relied on for reaching important decisions or conclusions without appropriate verification and, as appropriate, professional advice.

You acknowledge that Internet sites, and use of the Internet, might consist of, include and/or provide access to images, sound, messages, text, services or other content and material that may be unsuitable for minors and that may be objectionable to many adults. You acknowledge that EchoStar is not responsible for any such content or material and agree that access to same through use of the Service is at your sole risk. The reliability, availability, legality, performance and other aspects of resources accessed through the Internet are beyond EchoStar’s reasonable control and are not in any way warranted or supported by EchoStar or its third party contractors. You acknowledge that safeguards relative to copyright, ownership, appropriateness, reliability, legality and integrity of content may be entirely lacking with respect to the Internet and content accessible through it. You confirm that you assume all risk and liability of any use of the Internet through your account.

Finally, please note that EchoStar may automatically check the version of the EchoStar Equipment and EchoStar-provided software you are running and may provide upgrades to the system that will be automatically downloaded to your EchoStar Equipment. In addition, EchoStar may check the health and status of your system to ensure that the configuration of your computer is optimized for use with the Service. You hereby authorize all such access and upgrades.
