Privacy

  • 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 your account and may lead to criminal prosecution or civil penalties.

Copyright

    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. 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.
