This section is a list of things you probably already know Users shouldn’t do — lie, break laws, abuse people, steal data, hack other people’s computers, and so on. Please behave yourself. Don’t do this stuff.
Our vision is that millions of people use ACE. We expect all to behave responsibly and help keep this a nice place. Don’t do any of these things on the Site:
Don’t break the law. Don’t take any action that infringes or violates other people’s rights, violates the law, or breaches any contract or legal duty you have toward anyone.
Don’t lie to people. Don’t post information you know is false, misleading, or inaccurate. Don’t do anything deceptive or fraudulent.
Don’t offer prohibited items. Don’t offer any rewards that are illegal, violate any of ACE’s policies, rules, or guidelines, or violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation.
Don’t victimize anyone. Don’t do anything threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, tortious, obscene, profane, or invasive of another person’s privacy.
Don’t spam. Don’t distribute unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or promotional material, or any junk mail, spam, or chain letters. Don’t run mail lists, listservs, or any kind of auto-responder or spam on or through the Site.
Don’t harm anyone’s computer. Don’t distribute software viruses, or anything else (code, films, programs) designed to interfere with the proper function of any software, hardware, or equipment on the Site (whether it belongs to ACE or another party).
Don’t abuse other users’ personal information. When you use ACE — and especially if you create a successful listing and capital raise — you may receive information about other users, including things like their names, email addresses, and postal addresses. This information is provided for the purpose of participating in the ACE listing: don’t use it for other purposes, and don’t abuse it.
We also need to make sure that the Site is secure and our systems function properly. So don’t do any of these things — most of which boil down to “don’t mess with our system.”
Don’t try to interfere with the proper workings of the Services.
Don’t bypass any measures we’ve put in place to secure the Services.
Don’t try to damage or get unauthorized access to any system, data, password, or other information, whether it belongs to ACE or another party.
Don’t take any action that imposes an unreasonable load on our infrastructure, or on our third-party providers. (We reserve the right to determine what’s reasonable.)
Don’t use any kind of software or device (whether it’s manual or automated) to “crawl” or “spider” any part of the Site.
Don’t take apart or reverse engineer any aspect of ACE in an effort to access things like source code, underlying ideas, or algorithms.
