Together with the Terms of Service and the other documents referenced therein, this Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) forms a binding agreement (the “Agreement”) between QuantCDN and the Customer. The Agreement, including this AUP, binds all customers and users of QuantCDN’s Service and all visitors to QuantCDN’s website; all such customers and users are included in the term “Customer.” All other terms defined in the Terms of Service will have the same meaning when used in this AUP.
QuantCDN requires that all Customers conduct themselves as good citizens of the Internet and at all times behave with respect for others. Each Customer is responsible for preventing violations of this AUP by third parties accessing the Service through the Customer’s computers or accounts, including without limitation hackers and the Customer’s own users.
1. Prohibited Activities
