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.
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
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.
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.
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 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.
