"HybridIRC" or "HybridIRC server" means any server or servers that are listed under the www.hybridirc.com and www.hybridirc.org domain names.
"The Administrators" means anyone authorized by the owner of a HybridIRC server to act as an IRC operator, or the owners themselves.
HybridIRC is a private IRC network; access to it is allowed only to users who understand and agree to follow this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). If you do not agree to the terms of this AUP, disconnect from all HybridIRC servers immediately and discontinue all efforts to access or utilize any HybridIRC server.
Your permission to access HybridIRC may be withdrawn at any time, temporarily or permanently, for any reason, and without warning or explanation.
The Administrators are not responsible for the actions of IRC users. IRC is an unmoderated environment and you connect at your own risk.
THE ADMINISTRATORS SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE, ATTEMPT TO USE, OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SERVICE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Pursuant to United States Code (U.S.C.), Title 18, Part 1, Section 2701 Part (c), HybridIRC may scan your system to ensure it does not present a security risk to our network or its users. By connecting to any HybridIRC server, you consent to any and all scans, to be administered at the discretion of the Administrators.
Attacks or viruses that deny service, hurt, impair, or otherwise cause damage to this network or its users are illegal via Title 18, U.S.C. Part 1, Chapter 47, Section 1030. They are also illegal via the Canadian Criminal Code s. 342.2.
Accessing HybridIRC once specifically denied access is illegal. Violators may have their ISP or law enforcement notified. You understand that any suspected violation of this AUP or criminal acts may subject you to monitoring and disciplinary action by either the Administrators, your ISP, and/or law enforcement. The Administrators will cooperate fully with any ISP, proven law enforcement entity, or court order to aid in the apprehension of suspects.
If any provision of this AUP is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the terms of this AUP, and without further action by the parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.
