Dot Internet Solutions On-Site WiFi Terms of Service


1. General

This WiFi Service is an Internet access service provided by Dot Internet Solutions Inc. ("Dot Inc") which provides you with access to the Internet via a wireless access point (or points) (each a "Hotspot") utilizing one or more of the 802.11a/b/g/n protocols commonly referred to as "Wi-Fi" (the "Service"). These "Terms and Conditions" between you and Dot Inc set out duties and responsibilities associated with use of the Service. You are solely responsible for all access to and use of the Service including any breach of these Terms and Conditions by you or any user of your device. For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, "you" means you and every person you authorize to use the Service. By accessing the Service, you agree to these Terms and Conditions and Dot Inc's Privacy Policy (available at LINK TO DOT TOS). If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, you may not access or use the Service. Dot Inc may modify these Terms and Conditions at any time without your consent or authorization, including modification or termination of the Service, or any components thereof. Dot Inc will notify you of any changes to these Terms and Conditions by posting notice of the modified Terms and Conditions on the "Login" or "Intercept" page that is presented to you when you first access the Service from a "Hotspot". You agree to periodically review the then-current Terms and Conditions and/or Privacy Policy in order to be aware of any modifications and your continued use of the Service shall be deemed to be your acceptance of the modified Terms and Conditions and/or Privacy Policy, as applicable. If you do not agree to any modification of these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will be unable to use the Service.

2. Access

In order to access the Service, you must login to your Facebook or Twitter account using their respective "OAuth" authorization procedure, or by supplying your name and e-mail to Dot Inc, or, if available, as a guest and not supplying any additional information. By authorizing Dot Inc to access your Facebook account, you hereby grant Dot Inc access to certain information in your Facebook profile, including but not necessarily limited to: basic information including (but not limited to) age, birthdate, name, gender, location, email address; extended profile information including (but not limited to) events, check-ins, "likes", interests, friends, friends of friends, groups, etc.; and, other information which the OAuth procedure allows Dot Inc to access. By authorizing Dot Inc to access your Twitter account, you hereby grant Dot Inc access to certain information in your Twitter profile, including but not necessarily limited to: screen name, name, location, profile picture; and, other information which the OAuth procedure allows Dot Inc to access. If at any point the information Dot Inc requires by your access necessitates a higher level of Facebook or Twitter profile access through OAuth authorization, these Terms and Conditions shall be amended accordingly and Dot Inc will notify you of said changes in the manner set forth above.

Furthermore, by agreeing to allow Dot Inc to access your Facebook or Twitter profile through the OAuth procedure, you hereby agree to any and all terms and conditions imposed on you by Facebook, Inc. or Twitter in connection with the OAuth procedure, your use of the Facebook or Twitter website and any and all sites and/or applications or other data or content in connection therewith.

Linking of MAC Address to Personally Identifiable Information. You understand and agree that by engaging in certain Identification Activities, you are permitting us to: a) store and access your Personally Identifiable Information; b) link your Personally Identifiable Information to the MAC address and your location, as offered by the device with which you access the Internet and/or our WiFi service; and, c) use your Personally Identifiable Information in such other ways which accord with the terms and conditions herein set forth.

3. Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold Dot Inc, its directors, officers, shareholders, affiliates, agents and suppliers harmless from all liabilities and expenses related to any violation of these Terms and Conditions by you or any user of your device, or in connection with your or their use of the Service. While using the Service, you may not post, transmit or otherwise distribute information constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offence or give rise to civil liability, or otherwise use the Service in a manner which is contrary to law or to Dot Inc's then-current policies or would serve to restrict or inhibit any other user from using or enjoying the Service or the Internet. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to use the Service for any commercial purpose not otherwise permitted by these Terms and Conditions.

4. Acceptable Use Policy

You are responsible for your use of the Services. You shall not use or allow others to use the Service if such use:

You shall not threaten abuse or harass any Dot Inc employee or representative. You shall not (a) commit, attempt to commit, or allow others to commit or attempt to commit, any fraud against Dot Inc including fraudulently obtaining Services, or (b) transform outbound communications into incoming communications or otherwise attempt to avoid applicable charges, or (c) otherwise abuse the Service or allow others to do any of the foregoing. You shall not resell, transfer, distribute, share or exploit for commercial purposes any Service. You must follow all other service and security regulations issued or adopted by Dot Inc. Dot Inc reserves the right to limit or lockout your use should such use be in contravention of these Terms and Conditions. In addition, Dot Inc, and the owner or proprietor of the site at which the Services are being offered at your time of access to the Services and/or a Hotspot (collectively, the "Service Provider(s)") each reserve the right to limit or restrict your usage or the speeds at which you receive the Service at their discretion.

5. Service Availability

The Service is only available where Hotspot facilities exist. Dot Inc assumes no liability whatsoever for any claims, damages, losses or expenses arising out of or otherwise relating to the unavailability of the Service in your geographical area, in particular due to changes in the location and configuration of Hotspots.

6. Performance Levels

Dot Inc does not guarantee the performance of the Service. You understand that any content that you may access through the Service may be subject to network management in order to ensure that all users of the Services receive reasonable access to the Services.

7. Security and Privacy

Dot Inc respects your privacy and protects your private information according to its Privacy Policy available at DOT INC PRIVACY POLICY. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Dot Inc will not be responsible for any corrupted files or viruses which affect the user of the Service. It is your responsibility to safeguard your system, through appropriate means (e.g. using commercially available software), from theft, unauthorized use or system corruption. Any detriment caused to the network as a result of your failure to properly secure your system may result in the immediate termination of your access to the Service. Dot Inc does not ensure or guarantee privacy for users of the Service. Any such use shall be at your sole risk and Dot Inc, its affiliates and its agents shall be relieved from all liability in connection therewith. Hotspots represent additional security risks as compared with wired Internet connection because access to your compatible device is possible without being physically connected to your device, therefore, it is strongly recommended that you (and it is your responsibility to) ensure that the configuration of your device is secure. In order to work with the widest variety of devices, you acknowledge that the Hotspots do not provide any level of encryption (such as WEP, WPA or other encryption and authentication mechanisms).

8. Service Bandwidth Resale or Redistribution Prohibited

Resale or redistribution of bandwidth or any other part of the Service for any purpose is strictly forbidden. Failure to comply with this condition will result in immediate cancellation of access to the Services.

Any IP address assigned to you by Dot Inc is the property of Dot Inc at all times. IP addresses may change each time you access at Hotspot, or any time at the discretion of Dot Inc without prior notice to you. Dot Inc assumes no liability whatsoever for any claims, damages, losses or expenses arising out of or otherwise relating to any change in IP Addressing.

10. User Information

Your messages may be the subject of unauthorized third party interception and review. An individual with Internet access can cause damage, incur expenses and enter into contractual obligations while on the Internet. All such matters are your responsibility.

14. User Suspension

These Terms and Conditions may be terminated by you by ceasing to utilize the Services.

Failure by Dot Inc to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. If any of the provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions are determined to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions contained herein. Where any provision of these Terms and Conditions conflicts with an applicable tariff, the tariff shall supersede these Terms and Conditions only in respect of the conflicting provision.
