ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

Effective date: January 4, 2013

Hi there, welcome to the Acceptable Use Policy! Don't we know you from somewhere? Oh, that's right, from the Terms of Service. Remember that your use of Edmodo's Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Service, which incorporates this Acceptable Use Policy. Any terms we use here without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service.

Everybody

  1. You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Submission or otherwise use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:

    1. Infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or any other rights of anyone else (including Edmodo);

    2. Violates any law or regulation;

    3. Is harmful, fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, or otherwise objectionable;

    4. Jeopardizes the security of your Edmodo account or anyone else's (such as allowing someone else to log on as you on the Services);

    5. Attempts, in any manner, to obtain the password, account, or other security information from any other user;

    6. Violates the security of any computer network, or cracks any passwords or security encryption codes;

    7. Runs Maillist, Listserv, any form of auto-responder or "spam" on the Services, or any processes that run or are activated while you are not logged into the Services, or that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Services (including by placing an unreasonable load on the Services' infrastructure);

    8. "Crawls," "scrapes," or "spiders" any page or portion of the Services (through use of manual or automated means);

    9. Copies or stores any significant portion of the Content;

    10. Decompiles, reverse engineers, or otherwise attempts to obtain the source code of the Services.

  2. You will not use an Access Code that you're not authorized to use. For example, if you're a student, this means you won't use any Access Code that was not directly given to you by your teacher. If you're a parent or guardian, only use your own child's Access Codes.

  3. You will keep your Access Code private and not disclose any Access Code to any individual not authorized to receive that Access Code, and you will at all times use your best efforts to protect the security of your Limited Access Group. Do not post Access Codes in any public way (including on any widely-accessible internet page or in hard copy on a bulletin board, etc). If you're a teacher, after all students in your class have joined your Limited Access Group for such class, you will use the functionality of the Services to lock that Limited Access Group, preventing additional members from joining (you may temporarily lift this lock to add additional authorized users of new students join your class).

  4. You will not register for the Services as any category of user that you do not legitimately qualify for. For example, if you're a student, you will not register as a teacher, parent, administrator, Publisher, or any other category Edmodo offers now or in the future.
