This BizCube® Acceptable Use Policy (the "AUP") provides important information about your User Account and its permitted usage, so you should take the time to read and understand it. You may review, save or print any part of this Agreement.
IMPORTANT: IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MUST DO SO AS IT IS PRESENTED TO YOU—NO CHANGES (ADDITIONS OR DELETIONS) WILL BE ACCEPTED BY BIZCUBE SOLUTIONS PTE LTD.
As used in this Agreement:
"Account holder" means the Organization and its Authorized Officer as specified in the registration form. The Authorized Officer is ultimately responsible for all BizCube® correspondence, issues and other matters under the Account.
"User" means any person using BizCube® in the context of this Account.
"Content" means the text, software, communications, images, sounds, and all other information and materials users encounter or generate through their account or on-line through the Internet.
BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd encourages BizCube® users to participate in the on-line world to express their views and to benefit from the interactive experience. However, it is important to remember that there are rules and standards that you must abide by when you use BizCube®.
These rules and standards are described in this Agreement. As a BizCube® user, you agree to comply with this Agreement, and you acknowledge that BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd has the right to enforce this Agreement in its sole discretion. This means that if you, or anyone using your BizCube® account (including anyone using any sub-account you may establish under your main account), violate the terms of this Agreement, BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd may take any and all appropriate actions—this can range from the issuance of a warning about a violation to the termination of your access privileges for BizCube® to legal action—as BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd deems necessary or appropriate. BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd is not required to provide notice prior to terminating your BizCube® access for violating these rules and standards, but it may choose to do so.
You are solely responsible for your conduct, and the conduct of anyone using your account or any sub-accounts, while using BizCube®, including the contents of all email messages generated or forwarded, and all Content in any folders, home pages or other transmissions, information, images or other interactions generated, transmitted or maintained on or through your BizCube® account or any sub-account. BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd will not be responsible or liable in any way for any such on-line distribution or publication. BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd cannot and will not review every message or other content which may generated or posted on or through your account (although BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd reserves the right to monitor your use of BizCube®—see "Investigations", below), and BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd will not be responsible for anything in any of those messages or Content.
Your use of BizCube® should conform to the requirements of the law, respect for the rights of other users of BizCube® and third parties, and current standards for communicating on-line. By your use of BizCube®, you agree to use appropriate conduct and language when you are online—this includes (but is not limited to) following the rules of any ISP, any other on-line services, this Agreement and all applicable laws.
BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd reserves the right to terminate your access to BizCube® at any time, with cause or without cause, in the event of any breach of this Agreement by you (or anyone using your account or any sub-account), your infringement of BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd's or BizCube®'s or others' intellectual property, or any other circumstances which, in BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd's sole discretion, merit termination. Any such termination may, if BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd elects (and subject to applicable law), be without any refund to you of any prepaid fees or amounts.
Inappropriate conduct falls into a number of categories. The more commonly understood categories are discussed below, although this list is not exclusive.
Illegal, tortious and prohibited conduct
BizCube® may be used only for lawful and proper purposes. The laws and rules that apply in the off-line world must be obeyed on-line as well. Posting, transmitting, promoting, using, distributing or storing Content that could subject BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd to any legal liability, whether in tort or otherwise, or that is in violation of any applicable law or regulation, or otherwise contrary to commonly accepted community standards, is prohibited, including information and material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, nondisclosure or confidentiality agreements, or other intellectual property rights, and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes a threat, or violates export control laws.
If BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd elects to terminate your right to use BizCube® as a result of any illegal or prohibited conduct, BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd may elect, in its sole discretion (subject to applicable law), not to refund any prepaid fees or other amounts to you.
Examples of prohibited conduct are:
BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd reserves the right to cooperate with law enforcement authorities, including complying with warrants, court orders and subpoenas. In addition, BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd reserves the right to comply with any civil court orders and/or subpoenas.

In addition, the owner of the Content may take criminal or civil action against you. If a Content owner takes legal action against BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd because of your unauthorized use of Content, you agree (to the extent permitted by applicable law) to hold harmless and indemnify BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd, its subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies, employees, officers, directors, agents and suppliers against any liability, claims, or demands, including the costs of BizCube Solutions Pte Ltd hiring attorneys to defend against the action.
