1. Lanset Communications' Acceptable Usage Policy:

The following constitute violations of Lanset's Acceptable Usage Policy:

  1. Using Lanset's Service for illegal purposes or in support of illegal activities. Lanset reserves the right to cooperate with legal authorities and/or injured third parties in the investigation of any suspected crime or civil wrong.
  2. Harassing others by 'mail-bombing' or 'news-bombing.' 'Mail-bombing' constitutes sending more than ten (10) similar mail messages to the same email address. 'News-bombing' constitutes sending more than 10MB of data to a newsgroup.
  3. Sending unsolicited electronic mail (e-mail) messages where the recipient objects to the content of the message or to the receipt of the message in general is also prohibited under this Section.

    (a) Subscribers acknowledge that they are expressly prohibited from utilizing Lanset's Service, Lanset's equipment, or any Lanset email address in connection with the sending of the same or substantially similar unsolicited email message, whether commercial or not, to a large number of recipients. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service which in any way implicates the use of Lanset's Service, Lanset's equipment, or any Lanset email address(es).

    (b) A message is unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a USENET or newsgroup charter and/or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. For purposes of this provision, merely making one's email address accessible to the public shall not constitute a request or invitation to receive messages.

    (c) Subscriber specifically agrees that he/she/it will not utilize Lanset's Service, Lanset's equipment, or any Lanset email address in connection with the transmission of the same or substantially similar unsolicited message to 50 or more recipients or 15 or more newsgroups in a single day. A Subscriber responsible for these acts may be terminated at Lanset's discretion and a fine may be assessed. Lanset at its sole discretion shall determine whether such a violation was unintentional or willful. Fines assessed by Lanset and paid by the member under this provision shall not prevent Lanset from seeking to obtain other legal remedies against the member, including other damages or an injunction.
  4. Revealing your account password to others or allowing use of your account by others (other than authorized users in your household). At no time may there be simultaneous use of the same username and password combination.

  5. Use of software or any device that would allow your account to stay logged on while you are not actively using Lanset's Service or use the account for the purpose of operating a server of any type. (See Section 2)

  6. Posting articles to any USENET or other newsgroup, mailing list or similar forum which are off-topic according to the charter or other public statement of the forum.

  7. Engaging in any of the above activities using the service of another provider but channeling such activities through an Lanset account or re-mailer, or using an Lanset account as a mail drop for responses.

2. Unlimited Service
Subscriber acknowledges that Lanset's Service is intended for periodic, active use of email, user newsgroups, file transfers via FTP, Internet chat, Internet games, and browsing the World Wide Web. Subscriber further agrees not to use the Service on a standby or inactive basis in order to maintain a connection. Pinging is expressly prohibited. Accordingly, Lanset maintains the right to terminate Subscriber's connection following any extended period of inactivity as determined by Lanset.

3. Liability
Lanset has no practical ability to restrict all conduct, communications, or content which might violate this Policy prior to its transmission on Lanset's systems, nor can Lanset ensure prompt removal of any such communications or content after transmission or posting. Accordingly, Lanset does not assume liability to Subscribers or others for any failure to enforce the terms of this Policy.
