Acceptable Use Policy

Version: XB.P10.20200616.01
Effective date: 20/June/2020

This Acceptable Use Policy governs all of Xblend’s products, cloud services and websites (hereafter referred to as “Services.”)

The conditions stated below regulate the use of these Services. These conditions were created to prevent misuse or abuse of our own Services and help identify such transgressions and allow us to react accordingly.

Under this policy Xblend reserves the right to remove content that is inconsistent with the spirit of these guidelines, even if it’s something that is not forbidden by the letter of the policy.

Here’s what we won’t allow:


  1. Compromising the integrity of our systems. This could include probing, scanning, or testing the vulnerability of any system or network that hosts our Services. This prohibition does not apply to security assessments expressly permitted by Xblend
  2. Tampering with, reverse-engineering, or hacking our Services, circumventing any security or authentication measures, or attempting to gain unauthorized access to the Services, related systems, networks, or data
  3. Modifying, disabling, or compromising the integrity or performance of the Services or related systems, network or data
  4. Deciphering any transmissions to or from the servers running the Services
  5. Overwhelming or attempting to overwhelm our infrastructure by imposing an unreasonably large load on our systems that consume extraordinary resources (CPUs, memory, disk space, bandwidth, etc.), such as:
    • Using “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” or other automated systems to send more request messages to our servers than a human could reasonably send in the same period of time by using a normal browser
    • Going far beyond the use parameters for any given service as described in its corresponding documentation
    • Consuming an unreasonable amount of storage for music, videos, pornography, etc., in a way that’s unrelated to the purposes for which the Services were designed

Wrongful activities

  1. Misrepresentation of yourself, or disguising the origin of any content (including by “spoofing”, “phishing”, manipulating headers or other identifiers, impersonating anyone else, or falsely implying any sponsorship or association with Xblend or any third party)
  2. Using the Services to violate the privacy of others, including publishing or posting other people’s private and confidential information without their express permission, or collecting or gathering other people’s personal information (including account names or information) from our Services
  3. Using our Services to stalk, harass, or post direct, specific threats of violence against others
  4. Using the Services for any illegal purpose, or in violation of any laws (including without limitation data, privacy, and export control laws)
  5. Accessing or searching any part of the Services by any means other than our publicly supported interfaces (for example, “scraping”)
  6. Using meta tags or any other “hidden text” including Xblend’s or our suppliers’ product names or trademarks

Inappropriate communications

  1. Using the Services to generate or send unsolicited communications, advertising, chain letters, or spam
  2. Soliciting our users for commercial purposes, unless expressly permitted by Xblend
  3. Disparaging Xblend or our partners, vendors, or affiliates
  4. Promoting or advertising products or services other than your own without appropriate authorization

Inappropriate content

  1. Posting, uploading, sharing, submitting, or otherwise providing Contents that:
    • Infringes Xblend’s or a third party’s intellectual property or other rights, including any copyright, trademark, patent, code, trade secret, moral rights, privacy rights of publicity, or any other intellectual property right or proprietary or contractual right
    • You don’t have the right to submit
    • Is deceptive, fraudulent, illegal, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harmful to minors, pornographic (including child pornography, which we will remove and report to law enforcement), indecent, harassing, hateful
    • Encourages illegal or tortious conduct or that is otherwise inappropriate
    • Attacks others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or medical condition
    • Contains viruses, bots, worms, scripting exploits, or other similar materials
    • Is intended to be inflammatory
    • Could otherwise cause damage to Xblend or any third party

In this Acceptable Use Policy, the term “Content” means: (1) any information, data, text, software, code, scripts, music, sound, photos, graphics, videos, messages, tags, interactive features, or other materials that you post, upload, share, submit, or otherwise provide in any manner to the Services and (2) any other materials, content, or data you provide to Xblend or use with the Services.

Without affecting any other remedies legally available to us, Xblend may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend a user’s account, license or access to the services without notice or liability if Xblend (in its sole discretion) determines that a user has violated this Acceptable Use Policy.
