TERMS & CONDITIONS for NEWS SERVICE in partnership with newsfeeds.com

By subscribing to Newsfeeds.com I am stating that I have fully read, understood and accepted all terms and conditions listed in this agreement.

The content of all discussion groups, including without limitation, the descriptions for discussion groups and the content within a specific article, is provided by and is the responsibility of the creator of the discussion group or the person posting an article. Newsfeeds.com has NO responsibility for such content and is merely a conduit of articles traveling across Usenet. Usenet in general is a public forum much like the world wide web is available to the public. Newsfeeds.com does not control Usenet.

All articles on our servers are pushed to our servers via our upstream providers, including large international corporations. Newsfeeds.com receives well over 800,000 articles per day, and it is impossible for us or any other corporation running a usenet server to moderate newsgroups. Currently there are no state or federal laws that require any ISP to moderate usenet newsgroups.
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.

Again we must emphasize that it is impossible for us or any other usenet service to police hundreds of thousands of articles that pass through our servers everyday. Any article that passes through our servers is the SOLE RESPONSIBILITY of the person who posted the article or created the newsgroup.

* Newsfeeds.com does not produce any content that passes through our servers.

* Newsfeeds.com does not publish any content that passes through our servers. What we mean when we say publish is that we DO NOT extract pictures or programs from usenet for redistribution by various means, such as putting them on CD-ROM or making slide shows or putting them in zip files for download.

* Newsfeeds.com does not condone nor support people posting copyrighted or illegal content to Usenet. If you discover an article that contains any copyrighted or illegal content please fill out our online abuse reporting form . We will then remove the offending article IMMEDIATELY, and forward any and all relevant information to the appropriate federal law enforcement authorities.The name of a newsgroup is not illegal in nature and does not necessarily imply inappropriate or illegal activity. However we encourage customers to exercise caution and discretion when viewing and posting to all Usenet newsgroups. All content, without limitation, is provided by and is the responsibility of the person posting the content. We expect all customers to abide by Usenet etiquette, copyright laws, and civil and criminal laws.

POSTING ABILITY
Posting ability is a privilege, not a right. Your posting access may be suspended at any time without notice at the discretion of our abuse department. If you are unable to post and believe that your access may have been revoked, you may send email to abuse@newsfeeds.com with your account information. They will inform you if your posting access has been revoked and the reason. If it has, and you feel this was in error respond and explain the situation. They will then investigate and inform you of their decision by email. The decision of the abuse department is final and NO refunds will be granted due to inability to post after your posting access has been blocked. You will still have the ability to read articles.

FORBIDDEN ACTIVITIES
Newsfeeds.com has a zero-tolerance policy for the following activities, performing any of them will cause permanent suspension of your posting ability. These activities include, but are not limited to:
- Spamming: Advertising that is not welcome in the group where it was posted. If you do spam you may be billed for the cleanup costs (at the discretion of the management) at the rate of $200.00 (US) per hour, plus any collections and/or attorney's fees incurred in the collection of this fee.
- Flooding: Attempting to take over a newsgroup by flooding it with your posts.
- Trolling: Harassing or annoying other newsgroup users repeatedly.
- Copyright Infringement: Posting anything that is not in the public domain and that you don't own the rights to. This is a serious crime carrying serious legal consequences!
- Posting Illegal Content: Posting anything that is not legal in the United States.
- Posting Off-Topic: Posting something that does not belong in that newsgroup, as indicated by its charter or FAQ.
- Crossposting: Posting the same article to more than three newsgroups is prohibited. The article posted must be on-topic for each group.
- Harassment/Cyberstalking: Threatening or provoking confrontation with another party, causing fear for personal safety. Posting anyone's personal information such as phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers, etc. without that person's prior consent also falls under this category.

SYSTEM SECURITY
I will not attempt to bypass any security and/or access features of this site.

VIOLATIONS
If I use these services in violation of this agreement, I understand I may be in violation of local, federal and or civil laws. I agree to be responsible for all legal fees and loss of any income due the owners, Corporate Officers of this site. I understand that my membership will be canceled without notice or refund.

USE OF INFORMATION
I will not use or provide any information about or contained within this site against the providers, owners, Corporate Officers, and/or creators of this site in any type of action, legal or otherwise.

CANCELING AND REFUNDS
Absolutely no refunds will be given after a username and password have been issued. If we find a charge has been forcefully refunded or charged back, you will be in violation of this agreement. You may cancel your membership at any time, to do so send an email to support@newsfeeds.com with the receipt issued to you by IBill along with your account username and password. Your account will then be canceled at the end of your subscription period. Chargebacks or forced refunds from your account will also cause you to be listed in an online fraud database. This will prevent you from using your credit card, or phone number on the internet again with over 7000 companies that use IBILL for their online billing. If you were never assigned a username and password due to an error on the part of Newsfeeds.com you may either have the charge refunded or we will activate your account and compensate you (with extra time or a free account upgrade) for any lost time. We will not issue refunds for any other reason, with the exception of fraud (read below for details).
Posting Footer
Newsfeeds.com reservers the right to attach an advertisement to the bottom any posts you make through our service. If you object to this you have the option of posting through spamkiller.newsfeeds.com, which does not attach the footer.
Download Limits
We have compiled a chart which indicates the current download limits for each subscription level. This chart can be found at: http://www.newsfeeds.com/bandwidth-compare.htm. The reason for this limit is to prevent any one server from becoming overloaded and to prevent abusive users from running suck feeds from an individual user account. There is also a simultaneous connection limit (per username) of 3. We reserve the right to modify these settings at any time.
Newsfeeds.com Email Accounts
The free email acount provided with each subscription is for incoming mail only. No SMTP (outgoing) mail server is provided. We suggest using your ISPs SMTP server.
Newsfeeds.com accepts NO responsibility for lost email.
Yearly Accounts
Purchasing a yearly account does not "grandfather" you into any particular set of download limits or other settings.
Acceptable use of account
Personal accounts may be used for the subscribers personal use only. 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. NO refunds will be issued if your account is canceled for this reason.

FRAUD
If your credit card or phone number was fraudulently used to gain access to this service, FAX a copy of the Police Report to us at 503-214-6556. We will have ibill refund the charge and have your credit card or phone number blocked from anyone ever using it with IBill again. We will provide this information to the FBI and/or Interpol for substantiation of criminal fraud charges. We take fraud very seriously, and will press charges, both criminal and civil. Users who commit fraud by gaining access to our sites and then by what ever means obtains refunds, are committing fraud against a corporation in interstate commerce.
A Note from our billing company regarding refunds and fraud claims:
It should be noted that, with very few exceptions, every credit card refund results in that card number being entered into ibill's negative database. This is our in-house record of past problem customers. Yes, it's possible for a never-before-encountered credit card number to fraudulently buy from one ibill client... once. After that, the card number is forever blocked from purchasing anything from any ibill client.
Anyone who thinks about requesting a refund by falsely claiming his card was used fraudulently had better be sure that he will never again want to use that card on over 16,000 web sites. Even if the charge arrived on your statement because someone else used your card (my son did what???), ibill has to assume that if it happened once it might happen again. If someone unknown to you is placing charges on your credit card, now would be a very good time to call your credit card issuer, cancel that card number and start over with a new one.
