Acceptable Use Policy

Effective starting: June 1, 2019


Our goal at Nubix is to ensure that all of our customers perform their work efficiently and in a collegial, safe environment. The word “Services” refers to all websites owned or operated by Nubix, Inc. and any related websites, sub-domains and pages, as well as any cloud services operated by Nubix. To achieve that goal we need to keep our Services running smoothly, quickly, and without distraction, which means we (and you, our users) must guard against misuse or abuse our products and services.


This Acceptable Use Policy describes what we mean by “misuse” or “abuse”.  This policy also helps us to identify inappropriate use or behavior and react accordingly.  Under this policy, we reserve the right to remove content that is inconsistent with the spirit of the guidelines, even if it’s something that is not forbidden by the letter of the policy. 


In this Acceptable Use Policy, the term “content” means: (1) any information, data, text, software, code, scripts, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or other materials that you post, upload, share, submit, or otherwise provide in any manner to the services and (2) any other materials, content, or data you provide to Nubix or use with the Services.
