PRIVACEMAIL SPAM POLICY
Our spam policy at PrivacEmail is "zero-tolerance". Anyone found to be generating spam from within our system will have their user privileges revoked immediately. Persons attempting to forward spam email messages inbound to our system will be blocked and prevented from sending further email to any PrivacEmail users. Please note, however, that many messages appearing to originate from PrivacEmail (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.
Therapy Online may terminate your access to the Service and any related service(s) at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, for any reason whatsoever.
MAINTAINING AN ACCOUNT AND YOUR PRIVACY
You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login password, your passphrase and your account. We urge you NOT to disclose your passwords to anyone, or to allow another person to access the PrivacEmail system while you are still logged in. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. We urge you to logout after each use of the PrivacEmail site, and to clear your browser’s cache. This is also known as clearing your recent browsing history. (Please refer to your browser’s help menu if necessary.) This helps keep your personal information safe, and is particularly important if others may be using the same computer after you. We advise you to be aware of the security issues related to downloading and storing files to your local computer or to a portable storage device, and if you are not aware of the risks, to avoid doing so. Once a file is stored on your local computer or on a portable storage device, it is unencrypted, and you become fully responsible for safeguarding that file. Please be aware that computer viruses, malware, and even legitimate software products exist that are capable of recording keystrokes. It is good computing practice to always ensure that your computer is running up-to-date antivirus software.
The information and services included in or available through the Service may include inaccuracies or errors. Therapy Online may make improvements and/or changes to the Service at any time without notice. Therapy Online does not guarantee that PrivacEmail will be uninterrupted or error-free, that bugs or malfunctions will be corrected, or that the Service and its servers are free of harmful components. Therapy Online does not guarantee that the uses of its Service, or the materials provided within the Service, are accurate, without error, or reliable. Therapy Online provides its Service "as is". The Company makes no warranty or covenant in regards to the availability, reliability, or timeliness of the Service. Therapy Online is not responsible for the appropriateness of the Service for any one purpose. You should be aware that the PrivacEmail.com system, used by Therapy Online to deliver your online counselling services, does not encrypt your login ID, the e-mail header information, including the Subject line. Therapy Online will not be held responsible for any and all damages whatsoever as a result of the loss of use, data or profits connected to the performance of PrivacEmail. The user is solely responsible for any and all information that passes through the PrivacEmail servers. Therapy Online is not responsible or liable for any product or service acquired or requested using the Service. The sole remedy is for users to discontinue their use of PrivacEmail and its related Web sites.
You agree that Therapy Online, its parents, subsidiaries, officers and employees, cannot be held responsible for any third party claim, demand, or damage, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of your use of the Service.
