YOU ARE ESPECIALLY ADVISED AGAINST USING THE SYSTEM OR ANY PART THEREOF, WITH “CONTENT SENSITIVE” OR “MISSION CRITICAL” APPLICATIONS AND INFORMATION. “CONTENT SENSITIVE” SHALL MEAN ANY INFORMATION OR DATA YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE FREELY ACCESSIBLE AND GENERALLY AVAILABLE TO INTERNET USERS. “MISSION CRITICAL” APPLICATIONS AND USE SHALL MEAN APPLICATIONS AND USE THAT MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE.
8.4.1 The following covenants are binding for all the System users, and the failure to comply with any of these safeguards will constitute grounds for Operon Resource Management to terminate any data transfer arrangement between Operon Resource Management and the person(s) or entity(ies) concerned.
You are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate the security of the System, including without limitation, (i) accessing data not intended for such a user or logging into a server or account for which such a user is not authorized access, (ii) attempting to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of the System or our network or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization, (iii) attempting to interfere with services to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, via means of overloading, “flooding”, “mail-bombing” or “crashing”, or (iv) forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any posting.
