IT Global — Acceptable Use Policy
To help us achieve this goal, we have developed this acceptable use policy (Acceptable Use Policy) which reflects our values and expected standards of behaviour and sets out:
· the activities that are not acceptable in relation to your use of our Community Suite and your interactions with other members of our Community Suite; and
· the consequences for you if you engage in those activities.
You agree that your use of our Community Suite and your interactions with other members will be in compliance with the spirit and requirements of this Acceptable Use Policy. Throughout this Acceptable Use Policy, the word 'including' or similar terms or expressions do not limit what else is included unless there is express wording to the contrary.
