Prohibited activities or content include:

No Security Violations

You may not use the Services to violate the security or integrity of any network, computer or communications system, software application, or network or computing device (each, a “System”). Prohibited activities include:

  • Unauthorized Access. Accessing or using any System without permission, including attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a System or to breach any security or authentication measures used by a System.
  • Monitoring of data or traffic on a System without permission.

  • Monitoring or Crawling. Monitoring or crawling of a System that impairs or disrupts the System being monitored or crawled.
  • Denial of Service (DoS). Inundating a target with communications requests so the target either cannot respond to legitimate traffic or responds so slowly that it becomes ineffective.

  • Operation of Certain Network Services. Operating network services like open proxies, open mail relays, or open recursive domain name servers.

No E-Mail or Other Message Abuse

You will not distribute, publish, send, or facilitate the sending of unsolicited mass e-mail or other messages, promotions, advertising, or solicitations (like “spam”), including commercial advertising and informational announcements. You will not alter or obscure mail headers or assume a sender’s identity without the sender’s explicit permission. You will not collect replies to messages sent from another internet service provider if those messages violate this Policy or the acceptable use policy of that provider.

Our Monitoring and Enforcement

We reserve the right, but do not assume the obligation, to investigate any violation of this Policy or misuse of the Services or McLane Intel Site. We may:

  • investigate violations of this Policy or misuse of the Services or McLane Intel Site; or
  • remove, disable access to, or modify any content or resource that violates this Policy or any other agreement we have with you for use of the Services or the McLane Intel Site.

We may report any activity that we suspect violates any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators, or other appropriate third parties. Our reporting may include disclosing appropriate customer information. We also may cooperate with appropriate law enforcement agencies, regulators, or other appropriate third parties to help with the investigation and prosecution of illegal conduct by providing network and systems information related to alleged violations of this Policy.

Reporting of Violations of this Policy

If you become aware of any violation of this Policy, you will immediately notify us and provide us with assistance, as requested, to stop or remedy the violation. To report any violation of this Policy, please follow our abuse reporting process.

Please report suspected abuse of McLane Intel resources as described below.

Please provide information as completely and accurately as possible.  McLane Intel is a dynamic environment where customers launch and terminate many services over the course of a few hours. This means that customers may occupy the same host or service at different times of the same day. Therefore, it is critical that you identify the IP address(es), date, exact time (accurate to within 1 minute), and time zone in order for us to accurately identify the reported resource.

Report other McLane Intel abuse

Please send reports of abuse of other McLane Intel Services to, making sure to include as much identifying information as possible. Note that we will not open any attachments.

Please note that the McLane Intel abuse team may not process or respond to spam or to reports that contain offensive or vulgar language. Threats of harm to McLane, McLane personnel, or third parties may be reported to law enforcement.
