You must not use the Services to make unauthorized attempts to access the systems and networks of others. You must not use the Services as a door or signpost to another server. You must not use the Services in a manner in which system or network resources are unreasonably denied to our other clients.

If your password is lost, stolen or compromised in any way, immediately notify your assigned Vision Account Manager.

6. The Internet

You understand there are risks to using the Internet. The reliability, availability and performance of resources accessed through the Internet are beyond Vision's control and cannot be in any way warranted or supported by us. You are responsible for making backup copies of your files. Safeguards relative to copyright, ownership, decency, reliability and integrity of content may be entirely lacking with respect to the Internet and content accessible through it. Vision makes no warranty that any systems accessed will be free of computer viruses. Vision provides access to other systems not controlled by us including, but not limited to, discussion groups, RSS feeds, websites and databases, that may contain pictures and language intended for adult audiences.

You are responsible for all fees charged by the registrar, including setup and renewal fees. You will be responsible for all licensing fees, if any, including but not limited to secure digital certificate renewal fees. Vision will not be responsible for maintaining or renewing domain names, digital certificates, or any other third party registrations.

8. Breach

Neither your Agreement nor the AUP requires that Vision take any action against any customer or licensee for violating this AUP. However, if you violate any term of this AUP, Vision reserves the right to suspend access to the your website without prior notice, and may terminate the Services and/or your Agreement after Vision has given you notice and you fail to cure the violation within 15 days after such notice. If access is only suspended, you will remain liable for all payments due under our Agreement as if access had not been interrupted.

9. Revision of AUP

Vision may change this AUP at any time by posting a new version on this page and notifying you. The new version will become effective on the date indicated by such notice.
