Other activities Syfertek determines to be harmful
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Syfertek determines to be harmful to its clients, operations, reputation, goodwill, or customer relations. As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding the harmful activities just described rests primarily with the client. Syfertek will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its client to ensure that they comply with Syfertek policy or applicable law. When Syfertek 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 web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or take any other action it deems appropriate. Syfertek also is concerned with the privacy of on-line communications and web sites. 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, Syfertek urges its clients to assume that all of their on-line communications are insecure. Syfertek cannot take any responsibility for the security of information transmitted over Syferteks facilities. Syfertek will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or received by its clients unless required to do so by law, governmental authority, or when public safety is at stake. Syfertek may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, Syfertek may disclose information, including but not limited to, information concerning a client, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation, or governmental request. Syfertek assumes no obligation to inform the client that client information has been provided and in some cases may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, Syfertek may disclose client information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect Syfertek and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including Syfertek and its clients, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a client's violation of this AUP should be sent to mail@syfertek.com.
