  1. Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Do

This section is a list of things you probably already know you 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:

 

  • 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 Kickstarter or another party.)

We can change our eligibility criteria at any time. If these things are prohibited by law where you live, then we revoke your right to use Sparkling IT News in that jurisdiction.

Sparkling IT News is not liable for any damages as a result of any of these actions, and it is our policy not to comment on the reasons for any such action.
