M80.NET's Usage Policy
Unlimited Usage Policy:
Unlimited usage, this means as long as the Customer is at the keyboard or downloading a program the practice is acceptable. This is not intended to be a full-time unattended connection. Customer agrees not to provide any public information services over this connection, not to use any automatic method to avoid inactivity disconnect, and to keep the connection active only when the member is actively using it. A few individuals holding a modem connection for long periods of time increase the possibility of other users being unable to gain access. Any user who is inactive for a period of 15 minutes will be automatically disconnected to make room for active users. If you are disconnected for inactivity, just connect again when you are ready to use the Internet.
Domain Name Ownership:
Bulk E-Mail and Spamming:
The Customer shall be responsible for all costs and fees associated with its domain name including, but not limited to all costs and fees for transferring the name. The Customer shall make payment directly to the issuer. Under no circumstances shall M80.Net be responsible for this cost.
It shall not be permissible for the Customer to engage in any bulk E-mailing or use of mail servers or mail relays (commonly referred to as "SPAMMING"). In the event that the Customer engages in such activity, M80.NET may elect to immediately terminate the Customer at its sole discretion without prior notice to the Customer. In the event that M80.NET terminates the Customer due to this provision, the Customer shall not be entitled to a refund. Forwarding 25 unsolicited pieces of mail within a 24 hour period shall be considered "spamming". the Customer shall be liable for any and all damages caused as a result of the Customer's failure to comply with this provision.E-Mail Filtering:
As spam has become a major problem for many email users, we have been forced to implement anti-spam policies on our POP3 mail server that services M80.NET email users.
We reject incoming email under the following conditions:
- Incoming email is rejected if the email sender's server is a known source of spam.
- Incoming email is rejected if the email sender's server does not have a Reverse DNS entry (also called a PTR record). A large percentage of spam originates from sources that are not legitimate email servers. Legitimate email servers will have a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) and as such will also have a Reverse DNS entry that matches their FQDN. In rare cases, a company will not have their DNS or their email server configured properly and email from them will be rejected until they correct the name of their server and/or correct the reverse DNS entry.
- Incoming email is rejected if the message contains an executable program and/or an executable script (almost always a virus). If someone needs to email you an executable, they need to place the executable inside a zip file and email you the zip file.
- Incoming email is rejected if the email sender's server has attempted to send too much email to non-existent mailboxes (trolling for deliverable mailboxes).
M80.Net reserves the right to implement additional steps as necessary to reduce or eliminate threats from unsolicited SPAM, Spyware, Malware, Email attachments containing viruses, and another future email threats.
Either party may terminate this Agreement without cause upon 30 days written notice to the other party. E-Mail shall be deemed adequate notice by either party. Nothing in this paragraph however shall limit M80.NET's right to terminate the Customer immediately and without prior notice for improper use and violations as set forth herein. In the event that M80.NET elects to terminate the Customer as a result of its improper acts and breach of the terms and conditions contained herein, the Customer shall not be entitled to a refund of the balance. In no event shall the Customer be entitled to a refund of the setup fee. In the event the Customer elects to terminate this Agreement, same shall be considered a breach and the Customer shall not be entitled to any refund. In the event that M80.NET elects to terminate the Customer without cause, the Customer shall receive a full refund of any balance.
