This Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) governs your use of the Internet services (“Service”) provided by us (the “ISP”), whether you subscribe to the Service or not, and you agree to all the terms set forth herein.
Generally, ISP does not monitor or edit the content posted by users of the Service or other Internet services that may be available on or through the Service (e.g., forums, newsgroups, chat rooms, message boards, etc.). However, ISP and its agents reserve the right at their sole discretion to remove any content that, in ISP’s judgment, does not comply with the AUP or is otherwise harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. ISP is not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such content.
In addition, ISP may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong. Your violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or termination of either your access to the Service and/or your ISP account. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold ISP harmless from any claims resulting from your use of this service, which damages you or another party. At our sole discretion, we may revoke your access for inappropriate usage. Use of any information obtained via the Service is at your own risk. ISP is not responsible for the accuracy, quality, or content of information obtained through the Service. This AUP should be read in conjunction with our Internet Service Agreement and other policies.
The following constitute violations of ISP’s AUP:
(A) Using the Service to gain unauthorized access to any computer systems.

(C) Using the Service to harm or attempt to harm a minor, including but not limited to using the Service to send pornographic, obscene or profane materials, or violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

ISP reserves the right to terminate accounts that are identified as repeatedly sending bulk email.

3. BANDWIDTH USAGE AND SPEEDS
ISP may establish and enforce bandwidth usage limitations to ensure the quality of service for all subscribers. By using the Service, you agree that you are responsible for bandwidth consumption over your connection and will comply with any limitations that are now in effect or may be established in the future. If your use of the Service results in bandwidth usage in excess of established policies or packages, ISP may, at its sole discretion, take actions to mitigate this, including but not limited to billing for excess bandwidth used, temporarily restricting or terminating data throughput from and/or to your connection, or terminating your account. The actual speeds you may experience on the Service at any time will vary based on a number of variables, including the capabilities of your equipment, placement of any WiFi access points and client devices, Internet congestion, the performance of external websites and servers, the content and applications that you use, and network management policies implemented by ISP.
