The Rules of the Road (aka Acceptable Use Policy)

There are the Rules of the Road for your Phone and Services.  They cover some categories and examples that are acceptable and some that are prohibited when you use our website or our network.  Other parts of The Deal also talk about some things you aren’t allowed to do, so make sure you look at those, too.  We want everyone to love their Boost Infinite service, and we need to make sure that it’s not used in a way that harms others.  You agree to follow these rules whenever you use our network or the Services.  These rules change sometimes and you must always follow the version in effect when you are using the website or the Services. 

 

Lawful Use

 

Don’t access or use our website or use the Services in ways the law doesn’t allow, including sending or storing anything that is illegal, harmful, or violates any laws.  Also, don’t use the website or the Services in ways that cause harm to others, including our website and network.  We have the right to decide if something you do or don’t do causes any such harm.

 

Infringement

 

Don’t infringe anyone’s intellectual property rights.  These are things such as copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy, and publicity. Examples of violations are unauthorized use of pictures, logos, software, articles, musical works, and videos.

 

Offensive Materials

 

Don’t send or store anything that is libelous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, sexually explicit, cruel, harassing, threatening, inciting violence, promoting bigotry, racist, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, or otherwise objectionable.  Do remember that the person you are interacting with is also a real human being.  Also, don’t access or use our website or the Services to view, send, store, or use, in any way, any sort of child pornography.

 

Excessive Use of Network Resources

 

Don’t use excessive data or any excessive amount of our network resources.  It can disrupt or degrade our network.  Some of the things you are not allowed to do are: unattended streaming, downloading, or uploading of videos or other files, or the operation of hosting services.

 

Phone Usage; Modification

 

Your use of the Phone you buy or finance from us for the Services must be for normal consumer usage.  Don’t, for example, cable your Phone to any unaffiliated location.  Don’t use your Phone as a modem for, or tether it to, computers or other equipment.  Don’t use any devices (such as Phones) that are incompatible with our network.  We have the right to block use of any such devices. 

 

Prohibited Uses

Your account is for personal use only and you can’t use it for commercial purposes like telemarketing, autodialing, or monitoring. You can’t share your service or hotspot with the public, do any “traffic pumping” (iykyk), or allow your Phone to connect to a never-ending call or data use session.

 

Resale

 

Don’t resell the Services to anyone else. 

 

Fraudulent Conduct

 

Don’t use your Phone, Services, or our website to commit fraud, such as make-money-fast schemes, chain letters, or pyramid schemes.
