Web site information and software

Information and software on this website may not be copied or reproduced on other web sites either on the world wide web or on internal intranets or anywhere else.

Downloads of many files using web site copier software such as HTrack, Wget, WebStripper etc is considered abuse, will be treated at a DOS attack as it overloads our server.

Much information has been provided by satellite service companies. Some of this may be out of date.  Prices and technical details of satellite internet equipment and services, for example, may be in error and may be changed.

Trademarks, service and product names, logos and links

Trademarks, service and product names and logos of Satellite Signals Limited used in the website are the property of Satellite Signals Limited. 

Links to the home page or to specific pages in this web site are welcome without prior approval and are best put in text form e.g. Eric's satellite internet web site.

Privacy statement

When you access this website everything you type in and receive back is encoded in such simple and well known codes (ASCII, Unicode, JPG, GIF etc) that it can be regarded as in the clear, with no privacy.  The same applies to emails, all of which, both sent and received, may be stored in information retrieval systems for subsequent intelligence analysis. I have been told (August 2013) that the following US internet companies are making all correspondence and personal data available for harvesting by the US National Security Agency: Microsoft, Yahoo (BT), Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype (Microsoft), YouTube, Apple.   In the satsig forum it is necessary to register and use a username and password in order to post messages. This is in an attempt to stop spammers and fraudsters. You may send or receive your password via a plain text message.  Note that plain text is not encrypted, and it therefore susceptible to interception in transit. The forum logging in process similarly involves the transmission of your username and password, in the clear. Please use a password comprising at least 8 random characters that is unique to your satsig forum registration. Such is the intensity of hacking that we cannot assure privacy. Please use a unique password for the forum is case it is hacked.   If you ever access the site using wifi in an office, house, hotel or at internet cafe be aware that your messaging is open to interception.  In the forum you are advised to avoid providing very exact GPS location data for your VSAT sites.

The internet is not a secure environment and the traffic to and from this website transits many countries and places where it is inevitable that data will be intercepted.

The server is supposed to have a log of accesses and this is analysed from time to time and we take an interest in what is going on. The log files may be incomplete or inaccurate, as may the resulting analysis.   Example of the log.

If your equipments send abnormal access attempts (e.g. nimbda virus, port scans, hacking attempts) to the site we may investigate, via your internet service provider, to get the access stopped if it is a problem.  Computers at IP addresses sending multiple requests using web copier software may be blocked.

If you send us emails asking for VSAT services, equipment, space segment rental etc we may forward such messages to anyone who we think may be able to help you, unless you specifically request otherwise.

Satellite Internet Forum

Contributions to the satellite internet forum are the responsibility of the people putting them there.  If we become aware of inappropriate postings such as spam, hacking codes, abuse or whatever, we will delete it.  We can't determine the accuracy of people's messages or closely monitor what people are doing.  Users of the forum are reminded to read the satellite internet forum rules, which appear during the sign up process. If you put your email address in the forum you may get some genuine replies but it is inevitable that you will be spammed.

It is important that you use a cryptic forum password comprising at least 8 random characters that is unique to your satsig forum registration and that you change it from time to time, particularly if you ever use hotel, internet cafe, wireless hotspot or similar to connect to the internet, where all your communications may be more easily intercepted.

Use of the forum while "logged in" as a member involves the temporary storage of a "cookie" on your PC while you are logged in. When you login your may select the time period for which this cookie applies.
