If you act recklessly or irresponsibly in using your Service or your actions endanger any person or the integrity or security of our Network, systems or equipment, your access may be restricted, suspended or terminated, without prior notice.

In particular, You agree that you will not use, attempt to use or allow your Internet Service to be used to:

  1. SPAM

Also, known as junk mail or Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE), the term “spam” refers to submitting a commercial email or SMS messages to a large number of recipients who have not requested or opted to receive it and have no reasonable expectation to receiving email or SMS from the sender.

Email or SMS sent by a company or an organisation with whom the recipient has established a relationship or which was requested or accepted (opt-in requirement) by the recipient is not considered spam. Spamming is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward Glemnet, but also because it can overload Glemnet’s network and disrupt service to Glemnet subscribers.

As a user of a Glemnet service platforms you must comply with any regulation in force that covers direct marketing regulations if you are sending communications to large multiple lists of users.

In the absence of positive, verifiable proof to the contrary by a User, Glemnet will consider complaints by recipients of emails or SMS messages to be conclusive that the recipient did not subscribe or otherwise request the email(s) or SMS about which a complaint was generated.

  1. Excessive use

You must use your Service in accordance with any download or capacity limits stated in the specific plan that you subscribe to for the use of that Service. We may limit, suspend or terminate your Internet Service if you unreasonably exceed such limits or excessively use the capacity or resources of our Network in a manner which may hinder or prevent us from providing services to other customers or which may pose a threat to the integrity of our Network or systems. If Glemnet determines that excessive bandwidth, disk space utilisation or high CPU loads are adversely affecting Glemnet’s ability to provide service to other users, Glemnet may take immediate action. Glemnet will attempt to notify the account owner as soon as possible.

  1. Reasonable Use

Where a data service is specified as Un-metered or Un-limited use reasonable usage is considered to be within 500 GB per month where this usage is exceeded Glemnet reserves the right to apply policies in traffic management to limit or restrict the usage above this level or to terminate the Users access to the Services if the limits continue to be exceeded after notification to the User.

  1. Illegal Use

  • violates a trademark, copyright, trade secret or other intellectual property rights of others,
  • violates export control laws or regulations,
  • violates the privacy, publicity or other personal rights of others,

  • contains obscene, offensive, unlawful, defamatory, harassing, abusive, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable content as reasonably determined by Glemnet,
