Please read them carefully.

This Service is provided to individuals who are at least 18 years old or to minors who have parental consent to open and maintain an account. Each user is solely responsible for his or her transmissions through MYMAIL.

As a condition of your use of the Service, you affirm to MYMAIL, that you will not use the Service for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these terms, conditions, and notices.

By registering an email address on a domain hosted or owned by MYMAIL, you agree to be bound by the terms outlined in this Service Agreement. MYMAIL may, at its sole discretion, immediately terminate service without cause or notice, should user's conduct fail to conform to these conditions:

1. MYMAIL, by offering services requiring the Internet is bound by certain Internet regulations, policies and procedures set by “The Internet Society”, “The Internet Architecture Board”, “Internet Engineering Task Force”, “InterNIC” and “ICANN.org” to send and receive certain types of communications, which may be applicable to you and therefore, you must agree to be bound by any such Internet regulation, policies or procedures that are applicable to you.

You also agree to not use MYMAIL for illegal purposes; to not interfere or disrupt networks connected to this service; and to comply with all the rules, policies and procedures connected to this service.

4. You agree not to transmit, or allow others to use your address to transmit, through MYMAIL, any illicit material including, but not limited to, unlawful or harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar or obscene material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate items discussed in #2 above.

6. You agree not to harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including email addresses, without their consent.

7. You will not create a false identity for the purpose of misleading others as to the identity of the sender or the origin of a message.

MYMAIL SPAM POLICY

MYMAIL has a "zero-tolerance" Spam policy. Anyone found to be generating spam from within our system will have their user privileges revoked immediately without refund. Persons attempting to forward spam email messages inbound to our system will be blocked and prevented from sending further email to any MYMAIL users.

Please note, however, that many messages appearing to originate from MYMAIL (or any other) mail servers could contain "forged headers", written by the party originating the messages to make them appear to come from somebody else. This is done to avoid action normally taken against those abusing email systems and to cause damage to the reputation of the parties appearing to have sent the messages. Experienced investigators can tell immediately whether headers have been forged and where the message actually originated; thus, it is important that any mail forwarded to us for investigation contains the complete headers from the original message.

ACCOUNT TERMINATION

MYMAIL may terminate your access to the Service and any related service(s) at any time, for a violation of any part of this agreement, with or without notice, effective immediately, without any refund. MYMAIL has no obligation to store or forward the contents of your account.

SIGNING UP AND MAINTAINING AN ACCOUNT

MYMAIL offers two types of accounts.

1. Personal accounts, where users choose their own email address, when available (eg. user@mymail.net) or a pseudo-auto-generated email address, when their desired choice is unavailable (eg. User123@mymail.net). This account option requires that the user register for service at: http://www.mymail.com;

2. Custom Domain accounts, for businesses or people who desire to use their own domain names (eg. user@YourOwnDomainName.com) hosted on a MYMAIL secure email server in order to manage, create and delete their own user email accounts through the MYMAIL email configuration interface. This account option requires that the user fill out a MyMail Sales Contact Authorization form at: http://www.mymail.com/bus_contact.php.

You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account.
