Banned activities

Security

You are responsible for ensuring that your usernames, passwords and login details for any Glide service or equipment remain confidential so that the network cannot be used by any unauthorised person including, but not limited to, those controlling access to (a) any computer hardware systems or networks; (b) any computer software or applications; or (c) any other services accessed by you in the use of either of the above. You shall not disclose these credentials to any third party, or use the same for any purpose connected with the improper use of the network including accessing or attempting to access other parts of the services for which you do not have access rights.

You are responsible for taking all reasonable steps necessary to prevent a third party obtaining access to our network.

You must immediately advise us if you become aware of any violation or suspected violation of these security provisions.

Other users

You are responsible for all uses made of the Glide broadband service through your account (whether authorised or unauthorised) and for any breach of this policy whether an unacceptable use occurs or is attempted, whether you knew or should have known about it, whether or not you carried out or attempted the unacceptable use alone, contributed to or acted with others or allowed any unacceptable use to occur by omission. You agree that Glide is not responsible for any of your activities in using our network. Although the internet is designed to appeal to a broad audience, it's your responsibility to determine whether any of the content accessed via the Glide broadband service is appropriate for children or others in your household home or office to view or use.
