Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

By signing up and/or using your Xusenet account, you agree to abide by this policy and to keep updated on changes. This policy may change at any time.

Account Services
All Personal Xusenet services are single user accounts. These accounts should be used by the owner of the account only, and there should only be one concurrent login session at any time. Failure to comply with this regulation is in direct conflict with the Terms & Conditions which every customer should have read and agreed to.

Net Etiquette and Abuse
At Xusenet, we would like every customer to have the best Internet experience possible; however, we do not wish it to be at other customers' expense. The Internet is a global computer network which is comprised of people from diverse backgrounds. When communicating with people on the Internet, it is best to keep in mind that there is another person on the other end of the computer that you are communicating with. Please treat others with the same respect as you would like to be treated.

  • Copyrights
    Almost every country has copyright laws. Xusenet cannot and does not review the information flowing through or stored on our system. When you become a Xusenet customer, you are agreeing not to transfer or store copyrighted works on our system without the permission of the copyright holder.
  • Content
    The content of USENET newsgroups is not regulated by Xusenet; therefore, Xusenet is not liable for their contents. Please do not contact the administrators regarding copyright issues, inflamatory posts, etc.
  • Commercial Posts
    Commercial posts are frowned upon in many newsgroups. If you are attempting to sell goods or services, please make sure you do so in the proper forums (*.forsale, business groups, etc.).
  • Chain Letters/Pyramid Schemes
    According to United States law, chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal. If you are found to be posting these to news, your account will be terminated.
  • Spam
    Spam is the repeated posting of articles to inappropriate newsgroups. Xusenet does not tolerate spam in any form. We run filters on our incoming and outgoing feeds to cut down on spam traffic that goes in either direction. Xusenet is very strict about spamming. You agree to not spam, and you agree to avoid heavy repetitive posting, as that may look like spam. If you are determined to have spammed, you will be charged a $50 cleanup fee per spam message that you post, and your account will be terminated.
