WayURL Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

Our Acceptable Use Policy seeks to protect us, our customers, and the broader Internet community from any unethical, irresponsible, or unlawful conduct when it comes to using WayURL's Products - which encompasses services, technologies, and products provided by us under any ongoing agreement. We collectively refer to our products and services as the "Product(s)."

Customers of WayURL found engaging in any activity that is against this acceptable use policy can be held accountable and have their service suspended or account terminated. In some cases, we could even be legally required to report such customers to relevant authorities.

This policy was last reviewed on January 10, 2023.

Fair use

We offer our services with the expectation that you will use them in a typical "business as usual" way. However, if your usage is deemed excessive, then extra fees may be imposed, or limits could be set.

We vehemently oppose any type of abuse, discrimination, violation of rights, or activity that harms a group, individual, or resource. We take it upon ourselves to ensure our customers and their users (“end-users”) utilize our products with the same intentions in mind.

Customer Responsibility

You have the obligation to take responsibility for any actions taken when using our products. This includes anyone who has been allowed access with your permission, as well as those taking advantage of security loopholes due to a lack of proper safety measures.

Upon using our products and services, customers agree to uphold this policy for their end-users. If any complaints arise from the actions of customers or those using the products, they will be directed toward the assigned contact person of that particular account.

Should any customer or their end-user, through the use of our services and products, be found in violation of our acceptable use policy, we reserve the right to immediately remove any associated products with said account as well as terminate it entirely. We will also take whatever additional preventative action is deemed necessary without giving prior notice. 

In compliance with applicable laws, no credits will be provided for any service interruptions caused by a breach of our acceptable use policy.
