Prohibited Material and Activities
To protect our subscribers, the security of our facilities, and our reputation and good standing in the internet network community, Picasso Fish specifically prohibits the storage on our servers, subscriber websites or other Picasso Fish facilities, any information or content which in our exclusive opinion is potentially illegal, defamatory, 'HATE' information or material, unlicensed copyrighted materials, or which contains links or directs visitors to sites which contain information or content prohibited on our facilities.
Picasso Fish reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate access to any subscriber login or web site without notice. Please, immediately notify us of inappropriate content or activities on our facilities.
Spam, Phishing & Unsolicited Bulk Mail
Our efforts to protect our system and our subscribers from spam or unsolicited bulk mail (UBM) are not determined by the content of the mailing but by the distribution method. It doesn't matter what the content of the message is, the deciding factors are that it is unsolicited, sent in bulk and that it arrives in our subscribers' email box.
We will never censor email or in any way prevent our subscribers from receiving mail addressed to them. However, we will do everything possible to prevent UBM from reaching our subscribers.
We may also terminate the service of any Picasso Fish subscriber who carries on as a spam or UBM originator or distributor from our server. As well as being a completely unacceptable practice, this activity can put our domain at risk of being banned by other servers who are trying to limit their exposure to spam and UBM.
Picasso Fish will never send out an email asking you for personal or account information. Phishing is a technique used by fraudsters to steal personal information such as your passwords or credit card numbers. If you receive such an email, please delete it immediately without replying to it or clicking on any hyperlinks present in the email.
Picasso Fish will not provide any information about our subscribers, including the provision of an e-mail address to any inquirer except that information which is expressly provided by the subscriber to the various web site service.

Picasso Fish makes no guarantee and assumes no liability for the security or backup of any data on any server including secure servers.
A reminder to customers, no computer system should be considered safe from intrusion. E-mail may pass through many computer systems, and should not be regarded as a secure means of communication unless encrypted. Even then, information is only as secure as the encryption method.
