By signing up and/or using your Newshosting account, you agree to abide by this policy and to keep updated on changes. This policy may change at any time.
ACCEPTABLE USE OF ACCOUNT
All Personal accounts may be used for the subscribers personal use only. These accounts should be used by the owner of the account only, and there should only be one concurrent login session (up to eight connections from the same IP address) at any time. You may NOT use a personal account to feed a news server or news caching server. Any such use will be grounds for immediate account termination. 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
The Internet is a global computer network which is comprised of people from diverse backgrounds. At Newshosting, we would like every customer to have the best Internet experience possible; however, we do not wish it to be at other customers' expense. 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.
The content of USENET newsgroups is not regulated by Newshosting; therefore, Newshosting is not liable for their contents. By its very nature, Usenet groups may carry very offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate material, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. We expect that you will use caution and common sense and exercise proper judgment when using Usenet. Please do not contact the administrators regarding inflamatory posts, etc. Newshosting may remove content from the System at any time and at its sole discretion. Newshosting is not liable for the loss or removal of any data posted on our System. By using our Services, the Customer expressly waives the right to seek damages with respect to any such loss or removal.
See our DMCA/Copyright Policy
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.).
Pyramid Schemes/Chain Letters
According to United States law, chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal. If you are found to be posting these to the newsgroups, your account will be terminated.
Please make sure your post is on-topic. Posting something that does not belong in that newsgroup, as indicated by its charter or FAQ is against general USENET Etiquette.
Certain newsgroups are specifically designated as allowing binary files to be posted, and some are designated for binary posts only. It is well accepted all over Usenet that binary files will be posted only in designated groups. Posting of binaries or text articles inappropriately, regardless of whether explicitly stated in a newsgroup charter or FAQ will bring your account under review for possible termination.
Spam is the repeated posting of articles to inappropriate newsgroups. Newshost does not tolerate spam in any form. Newshosting has a zero-tolerance spam policy. 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 $500 per message as a clean-up fee, plus any collections and/or attorney's fees incurred in the collection of this fee. In addition, your account will be canceled immediatly, and all reasonable efforts will be made by Newshosting to prevent you from using our network anytime thereafter.
