MADISONCOUNTY.NET specifically disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through MADISONCOUNTY.NET Internet Services.

This limitation of liability will not apply to liability for death or personal injury to the extent applicable law prohibits such limitation.

MADISONCOUNTY.NET will publish its Customer Agreement, including the Allowable Use Policy, on its web site. These policies may be revised from time to time. You agree to abide by MADISONCOUNTY.NET policies concerning use of MADISONCOUNTY.NET Internet Services as published on line at the time of use.

This includes, but is not limited to, copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless MADISONCOUNTY.NET from any claims resulting from your use of MADISONCOUNTY.NET Internet Services. Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation. See the newsgroup or mailing list's charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. "Spamming," or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is not allowed. Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five recipients, is considered by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. E-mail is a person-to-person medium, not a broadcast medium. Unsolicited advertisements via e-mail, or via discussion groups whose charter does not explicitly allow advertisements, are not allowable. Violations of MADISONCOUNTY.NET Customer Agreement and allowable use policies will result in account suspension or cancellation and fines as states in Charges and Billing.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACCOUNT USE
You are responsible for all use of your account(s) and confidentiality of password(s). MADISONCOUNTY.NET will suspend or change access upon notification that your password has been stolen, lost or otherwise possibly compromised.

UNAUTHORIZED USE OF ACCOUNT
MADISONCOUNTY.NET will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Such attempts include "social engineering" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password cracking, security hole scanning, denial-of-service attacks (ping-flooding, sending packets with an illegal packet size, UDP flooding, half-open TCP connection flooding, etc.) and the like. Harassment or abusive use of e-mail and other Internet services are not allowed. MADISONCOUNTY.NET will handle incidents of harassment on a case-by-case basis, consulting with all parties involved. Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a MADISONCOUNTY.NET customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to MADISONCOUNTY.NET, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and legal action, according to the seriousness of the attack.
RESALE OF INTERNET SERVICE
Resale of MADISONCOUNTY.NET service is prohibited. Any attempted resale of this service is a direct violation of this allowable internet usage policy. MADISONCOUNTY.NET reserves the right to disconnect any customer which, after investigation, it determines is reselling its service.
LIMITATIONS ON RESOURCE USAGE
MADISONCOUNTY.NET reserves the right to impose limits on the total amount of disk space and other resources available for your use on MADISONCOUNTY.NET operated computers. E-mail accounts for internet account users are subject to a limit of 500MB. MADISONCOUNTY.NET reserves the right to delete, without notice, personal e-mail files that have not been accessed for more than one month. Disk space for storage of web pages is available in amounts specific to each Internet service package. Use of excess space will be charged on a monthly basis according to rates and prices published online at the time of use. MADISONCOUNTY.NET reserves the right to remove files that exceed allowed limits.
Electronic mail passes through multiple mail servers on the Internet as it passes from source to destination. Privacy can never be guaranteed from every possible mail server; therefore, users seeking total privacy should use some encryption scheme to render messages unreadable by eavesdroppers. With regards to MADISONCOUNTY.NET mail servers, MADISONCOUNTY.NET places a high value on privacy and will only examine users' mail when absolutely required, for example when troubleshooting e-mail delivery problems or being presented with a search warrant for the information.
MADISONCOUNTY.NET bears certain legal liabilities for the use of its computer network and equipment. As such, MADISONCOUNTY.NET prohibits any and all use of MADISONCOUNTY.NET network for illegal purposes. When presented with a search warrant, MADISONCOUNTY.NET is obligated to release any information named therein, and will cooperate with authorities in any criminal investigation of inappropriate Internet usage. However, MADISONCOUNTY.NET recognizes that the legal status of the Internet has not yet been resolved satisfactorily, either through legislation or court precedent. Therefore, MADISONCOUNTY.NET must make certain decisions regarding the illegality of various specific actions. Among the actions MADISONCOUNTY.NET considers illegal and therefore will not allow on its network are: unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material; exploitation of minors; and unauthorized use of computer resources. MADISONCOUNTY.NET believes the First Amendment rights of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of association apply to the Internet to the same degree as they do to print media and that any attempt to infringe upon those rights is void of legitimacy.
MADISONCOUNTY.NET provides personal web space to Internet customers. MADISONCOUNTY.NET includes web service in its enhanced packages and hosts commercial web pages for a fee. In all cases, the web pages reside on MADISONCOUNTY.NET computer equipment, giving MADISONCOUNTY.NET some ethical responsibility for the content of such pages. MADISONCOUNTY.NET will handle potentially inappropriate web pages on a case-by-case basis. Examples of inappropriate information include downloadable virus code and obscene materials. Personal web space provided under any Residential Service may not be used for purposes that can be deemed as an attempt to sell a product or service. Only web space provided under non-Residential Services account may be used for commercial activity. Domain name service is available as an optional service. You are responsible for domain name registration with InterNIC and for any fees charged by InterNIC. MADISONCOUNTY.NET charges a setup fee for adding your registered name on the MADISONCOUNTY.NET domain name server.
