Safeport Network Services Terms of Service
Acceptance of Terms
Thank you for choosing Safeport. Safeport provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: http://www.safeport.com/tos.html. In addition, when using particular Safeport services, you and Safeport shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules (including but not limited to our Anti-Spam Policy, http://www.safeport.com/antispam.html) are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS. Safeport also may offer other services from time to time that are governed by different Terms of Services. Payment for services is governed by our Web Services Agreement.
Safeport currently provides users with access to domain name services, web hosting, email accounts and aliases, website design and maintenance, and general IT consulting (the "Service"). You also understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for Safeport to provide the Service. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from Safeport, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the Safeport Newsletter, and that these communications are considered part of Safeport membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new Safeport products or services, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that Safeport assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for service fees for this service. Safeport does not offer refunds for service fees.
You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
Please be aware that Safeport will not knowingly allow adult content in websites hosted by Safeport. (See Safeport User Conduct below.)
In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Safeport has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Safeport has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). Safeport is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children. For this reason, parents of children under the age of 18 who wish to allow their children access to the Service must be responsible for the Safeport account. When you create a Safeport web hosting and email account and add your child to the account, or when you enter your name as billing contact on en email-only account, you certify that you are at least 18 years old and that you are the legal guardian of the child/children listed on the Safeport account. By adding a child to your Safeport account, you also give your child permission to access all of the Services. As the legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the Services and/or Content are appropriate for your child.
User Accounts, Security and Passwords
You will receive a password and account name upon completing the Service's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Safeport of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Safeport cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this section.
Safeport User Conduct
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials ("Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that you, and not Safeport, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. Safeport will not knowingly allow adult content on websites hosted by Safeport, but does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of Content on websites hosted by Safeport. Under no circumstances will Safeport be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content made available via the Service.
You agree to not use the Service to:
You acknowledge that Safeport does not pre-screen Content, but that Safeport and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, Safeport and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by Safeport or submitted to Safeport, including all other parts of the Service.

You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

You further acknowledge and agree that Safeport shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such Content, goods or services available on or through any such site or resource.

Exclusions and Limitations
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.

You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate services, third-party content or third-party software. The TOS and the relationship between you and Safeport shall be governed by the laws of the State of Maryland without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and Safeport agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Montgomery, Maryland. The failure of Safeport to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the TOS is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the TOS remain in full force and effect.
