Acceptable Use Policy

As a provider of reports hosting, and other Internet-related services, Sedtec offers its customers (also known as subscribers), and their customers and users, the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial, and non-commercial information. Sedtec respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information, however, when there are competing interests at issue, Sedtec reserves the right to take certain preventative or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, Sedtec has developed an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective service agreement and is intended as a guide to the customer's rights and obligations when utilizing Sedtec's services. This AUP will be revised from time to time. A customer's use of Sedtec's services after changes to the AUP are posted on Sedtec's web site,, will constitute the customer's acceptance of any new or additional terms of the AUP that result from those changes. 


One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet's openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use the Internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that Sedtec cannot monitor, verify, warrant, or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that subscribers may acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive.


Because Sedtec cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, Sedtec cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive, or illegal Internet communications.  When subscribers disseminate information through the Internet, they also must keep in mind that Sedtec does not review, edit, censor, or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation, and other harmful speech. Also, because the information they create is carried over Sedtec's network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of Sedtec, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may harm Sedtec's goodwill, business reputation, and operations.


For these reasons, subscribers violate Sedtec policy and the service agreement when they, their customers, affiliates, or subsidiaries engage in the following prohibited activities:  Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of United States or state regulation or law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute. Sedtec reserves the right to remove such illegal material from its servers or to immediately terminate your services without notice.
