Acceptable Use Policy
Last Updated: May 1, 2021
All CodeisCode customers must follow this Acceptable Use Policy (“Policy”) when they access or use our websites, applications, and other online products and services, including email services, marketing services, review, and message boards, and various other message communication and learning management system applications (collectively, our “Services”). By accessing or using the Services, you agree to this Policy. If you do not agree, you may not access or use the Services. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate accounts if customers violate this Policy.
We reserve the right to change or modify this Policy at any time and at our sole discretion. If we make changes, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Services, or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of this document. By continuing to access and use the Services after our notice, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Policy. If you do not agree, you may not access or use the Services.
By accessing and using the Website and Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a business or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to this Agreement, in which case the terms “User”, “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with the terms of this Agreement, you must not accept this Agreement and may not access and use the Website and Services. You acknowledge that this Agreement is a contract between you and CodeisCode Marketing & Consulting LLC, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you, and it governs your use of the Website and Services.

You may not use the Website and Services to publish content or engage in activity that is illegal under applicable law, that is harmful to others, or that would subject us to liability, including, without limitation, in connection with any of the following, each of which is prohibited under this Policy:

Use or distribution of tools designed for compromising the security of the Website and Services.
Intentionally or negligently transmitting files containing a computer virus or corrupted data.
Accessing another network without permission, including to probe or scan for vulnerabilities or breach security or authentication measures.
Unauthorized scanning or monitoring of data on any network or system without proper authorization of the owner of the system or network.
You may not consume excessive amounts of the resources of the Website and Services or use the Website and Services in any way which results in performance issues or which interrupts the Services for other Users. Prohibited activities that contribute to excessive use, including without limitation:
Deliberate attempts to overload the Website and Services and broadcast attacks (i.e. denial of service attacks).
Engaging in any other activities that degrade the usability and performance of the Website and Services.
No spam policy
You may not use the Website and Services to send spam or bulk unsolicited messages. We maintain a zero-tolerance policy for use of the Website and Services in any manner associated with the transmission, distribution, or delivery of any bulk e-mail, including unsolicited bulk or unsolicited commercial e-mail, or the sending, assisting or commissioning the transmission of commercial e-mail that does not comply with the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 (“SPAM”).
Without limiting any other rights we may have, the parties agree that should you breach this section by sending spam it would be difficult to determine actual damages. Accordingly, a $500 charge per violation will be assessed as a reasonable estimate of the damages. The parties further agree that such $500 would not act as a penalty.
Your products or services advertised via SPAM (i.e. Spamvertised) may not be used in conjunction with the Website and Services. This provision includes, but is not limited to, SPAM sent via fax, phone, postal mail, email, instant messaging, or newsgroups.
Sending emails through the Website and Services to purchased email lists (“safe lists”) will be treated as SPAM.
Regulated and Sensitive Information.
It is possible to run an eLearning Commerce site with our platform, provided that you follow some best practices that prevent credit card information from being processed or stored using our platform. You are not permitted to use or cause our Services to store or process sensitive or otherwise regulated health or financial information, including Protected Health Information (as that term is defined under HIPAA), cardholder data protected under PCI DSS regulations (such as credit or debit card data), or other financial data (including any financial account details). You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any liabilities arising from your violation of this restriction.
You may not interfere with our business or our ability to provide services to other customers, nor take any action nor make any use of the Services that place excessive burdens on our systems used to provide such services. Specifically, you may not use or provide open proxies or Internet Relay Chat or use the Services for video streaming. If your use of the Services materially exceeds the use by similarly situated customers, we may offer to move you to a different plan or charge you for the additional use. If you refuse, we may place restrictions on your use of the Services. You may not perform any vulnerability or penetration testing of CodeisCode’s systems, including your own hosted environment, without our prior written approval.
Defamation and objectionable content
We value the freedom of expression and encourage Users to be respectful with the content they post. We are not a publisher of User content and are not in a position to investigate the veracity of individual defamation claims or to determine whether certain material, which we may find objectionable, should be censored. However, we reserve the right to moderate, disable or remove any content to prevent harm to others or to us or the Website and Services, as determined in our sole discretion.
You must take reasonable security precautions in connection with your use of the Services. You are responsible for the actions and omissions of your Authorized Users and anyone to whom you provide access to the Services or the content you create using the Services.
Copyrighted material must not be published via the Website and Services without the explicit permission of the copyright owner or a person explicitly authorized to give such permission by the copyright owner. Upon receipt of a claim for copyright infringement, or a notice of such violation, we may, at our discretion, run an investigation and, upon confirmation, may remove the infringing material from the Website and Services. We may terminate the Service of Users with repeated copyright infringements. Further procedures may be carried out if necessary. We will assume no liability to any User of the Website and Services for the removal of any such material. If you believe your copyright is being infringed by a person or persons using the Website and Services, please get in touch with us to report copyright infringement.

We reserve our right to be the sole arbiter in determining the seriousness of each infringement and to immediately take corrective actions, including but not limited to:

Nothing contained in this Policy shall be construed to limit our actions or remedies in any way with respect to any of the prohibited activities. We reserve the right to take any and all additional actions we may deem appropriate with respect to such activities, including without limitation taking action to recover the costs and expenses of identifying offenders and removing them from the Website and Services, and levying cancellation charges to cover our costs.
