Hotline


The Hotline Connect software suite enables Server communities on
personal computers worldwide that combined, comprise the Hotline
Network. Hotline Communications cannot, and does not, monitor, track
or control the activity or content on Hotline Servers outside the
Hotline Network, and as such, does not guarantee the accuracy,
integrity or quality of such activity or content.
Hotline Communications does, however, extend the following Usage Policy
to all users, including those users on Servers outside the Hotline
Network, as a guide to personal conduct while on Hotline. We advise all
Hotline users NOT to use Hotline software to do the following:
a. upload, post or otherwise transmit Content that is unlawful,
harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar,
obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially,
ethnically or otherwise objectionable;
b. harm minors in any way (Server administrators who wish to share
private material with Server visitors are asked to use the Server's
security features to limit Server access to minors);
c. impersonate any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a
Hotline Communications representative, employee, guide or host, or
falsely state or otherwise misrepresent any affiliation with a person
or entity;
d. upload, post or otherwise transmit any content without the express
right to transmit under any law or under contractual or fiduciary
relationships, such as inside information, proprietary and confidential
information that is learned or disclosed as part of employment
relationships or under nondisclosure agreements;
e. upload, post or otherwise transmit any content that infringes any
patent, trademark, trade secret copyright or other proprietary rights
of any party;
f. upload, post or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized
advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters,
pyramid schemes, or any other form of solicitation, except in those
areas (such as shopping areas) that have been designated for such
purposes;
g. upload, post or otherwise transmit any material that contains
software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed
to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer
software or hardware or telecommunications equipment;
h. disrupt the normal flow of dialogue, or otherwise act in a manner
that negatively affects other users' ability to engage in real time
exchanges;
i. interfere with or disrupt the Hotline Service or Server Network
connected to the Service, or disobey any requirements, procedures,
policies or regulations of networks connected to the Service;
j. intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local,
state, national or international law, including, but not limited to,
any rules of any national or other securities exchange, and any
regulations having the force of law;
k. stalk or otherwise harass other users;
l. collect or store personal data about other users.
Hotline Communications has also implemented a number of measures to
help protect the rights, property, and personal safety of Hotline
Communications, its users and the public on the Hotline Network,
including:
Terms of Service: All administrators of Servers listed on the Hotline
Network are required to agree to our Terms of Service before listing on
our Network.
Client License Agreement: All users of the Hotline Client are required
to agree to the terms outlined in their Client License Agreement before
downloading the Client software.
Server License Agreement: All users of the Hotline Server are required
to agree to the terms outlined in their Server License Agreement before

Room 222: Updated information and online discussions on political and
legal developments concerning the Internet are held regularly in Room
222 (IP 207.245.14.163.222), a Server on HLtracker.com.
Please report any violations of the Hotline Usage Policy and/or Terms
of Service to [email protected] If possible, please include the IP
