Terms & Conditions|
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully. By signing

us if you have any questions.
- Your privacy is very important.
- We will not sell your email address to any one.
- We expect you to respect the rights and privacy of all users and to use your account only for lawful purposes.
- Intentional violations of the privacy of other users, whether on our
system or at another site, will be grounds for immediate termination of

- We will not intentionally disclose the contents of private files without
the customer's permission or a court order.
You are responsible for determining the legal status of any intellectual
property you use or duplicate through our system. Some of the material
available on the Internet is copyrighted, and some of it may have been
distributed in violation of copyright laws. We cannot and do not review
the information flowing through or stored on our system. You agree not to
violate copyright laws by transferring copyrighted works through our
system or by causing them to be transferred or stored without the
permission of the copyright holder. Breaking this agreement will be
grounds for account termination.
Controversial and Explicit Material
We cannot be and are not responsible for the contents of any of your
communications through Xusenet. The Internet and USENET are large
communities that regard censorship as worse than obscenity. Through
our service, you will have access to and you will at some time or
another become exposed to materials that you find offensive. Such
materials include sexually explicit text and images,
pro-religious and anti-religious debate, questionable political views,
and hateful speech. Xusenet expressly disclaims liability for any
harm resulting from encountering such material.
Account Usage Policy
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.

Terms & Conditions which every customer should have read and
Limitation of Liability
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.
