HELP DESK/TECHNICAL SUPPORT
Our Help Desk department is ready to answer any questions you may have about your Internet connection with MTC BROADBAND. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order for MTC BROADBAND to cancel your account, the subscriber must e-mail, write a letter, or call the business office Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm at 1-800-586-3387 and request to cancel. We will then verify certain account information in order to cancel your account and stop the billing cycle.
Your password is the key to your security and to ours. We are not responsible for your sharing or loss of a password. (We do insist on use of non-obvious passwords that some users may be prone to forget; in that case we have procedures for setting new passwords.) Unless our records indicate that your account/files have been maliciously accessed-without such access being enabled by you--you will be held responsible for all activity in your account or under your login/password. For your protection and ours, we request immediate notification if your password has been lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised. Please contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that you have a finite amount of space for your e-mail. We allow up to 100Mbs of e-mail to be stored on our system.
Because data transmitted over the Internet is considered "insecure," clients are advised that if privacy or security is an issue, any confidential transmissions, including e-mail, should employ some sort of encryption. MTC BROADBAND has a secure server available for interested parties, but otherwise it is the subscriber's responsibility to provide and configure their own encryption.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
MTC BROADBAND services are provided on an "as is, as available" basis and no warranty, express or implied, including but not limited to those of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, is made with respect to MTC BROADBAND or its services. In addition, MTC BROADBAND makes no guarantee regarding availability of dial-up services, broadband connectivity or system functionality (including E-mail, Usenet, etc.).
MTC BROADBAND is not liable for any costs or damages arising directly or indirectly from the use of its Service, Technical Support, or the Internet. You are solely responsible for evaluating the accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of all services, products, and other information, and the quality and merchantability of all merchandise provided through this Service or on the Internet.
TERMINATION FOR CAUSE
All of the following actions are expressly prohibited and will result in automatic termination of a subscriber's account:
Attempting to gain access to another member's account, whether or not the attempt succeeds.
Engage in any activity which would result in third-party charges to MTC BROADBAND.
Resell or otherwise share MTC BROADBAND Internet service, account information or passwords.
Use of the system in such a way as to willfully or negligently burden our server's disk space, CPU, telecommunications or other resources or to effectively use MTC BROADBAND resources to cause a "denial of services" for MTC BROADBAND clients or those connected to other systems or servers on the network.
Transmitting on or through any MTC BROADBAND service, any material that is unlawful, obscene, harassing, threatening, abusive, libelous or hateful, or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law, including but not limited to direct or indirect threats of physical harm or the transmission or display of child pornography.
Transmitting, distributing, or storing any information, data or material in violation of U.S. regulation or law; state regulation or law; common law; or the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction in which MTC BROADBAND does business and/or the violation emanates, is received and/or occurs, including but not limited to material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret or any other proprietary-rights statute. Examples of such might include posting, uploading or otherwise distributing copyrighted material without the consent of the copyright holder, except when pursuant to the Fair Use Doctrine.
POLICY ON SPAM
E-Mail Users may not send unsolicited e-mail messages (i.e., not explicitly requested by the recipient), whether or not the practice causes complaints from recipients, including, without limitation, bulk commercial advertising, informational announcements, charity requests, petitions for signatures and political or religious tracts ("SPAM"), in a way that could be expected to adversely impact MTC BROADBAND, including, without limitation, using an e-mail account on or through the MTC BROADBAND network to send spam, or using the service of another provider to send spam or to promote a site hosted on or connected to the MTC BROADBAND network, either directly or indirectly. Users may not use the MTC BROADBAND network to:
Send e-mail messages that are excessive and/or intended to harass or annoy others, especially if the recipient has made a request to cease and desist;
Use the account to collect responses from unsolicited bulk or commercial e-mail sent from accounts with other providers;
Forward or otherwise propagate chain letters, whether or not such messages solicit money or other items of value, and whether or not the recipient wishes to receive such mailings;
Send e-mail with forged or missing TCP/IP packet-header information;
Engage in "mailbombing" (sending large quantities of unwanted or unsolicited e-mail to individual e-mail accounts or copies of a single message to many e-mail accounts);
The use of electronic distribution lists or other mass electronic mailings. Such use will result in immediate cancellation and a $500 per incident cleanup fee.
It may be necessary for MTC BROADBAND employees to examine system accounting logs and other records to resolve system problems. MTC BROADBAND reserves the right to access an account's mailbox to resolve system problems or mail system errors.
In addition, MTC BROADBAND will cooperate with the appropriate legal authorities in investigating claims of illegal activity, including but not limited to illegal transfer or use of copyrighted material, postings or e-mail containing threats of violence, or other illegal activity. MTC BROADBAND makes no guarantee and assumes no liability for the security of any data on any server including "secure servers."
Our customers are reminded that no computer system should be considered safe from intrusion. E-mail may pass through many computer systems, and should not be considered a secure means of communication unless encrypted. (Even then, information is only as secure as the encryption method.)
Phishing is a fraudulent attempt to gather sensitive information about you or your account. MTC BROADBAND will never ask you for sensitive information in email, including your password, social security number and/or credit card number. Please note: MTC BROADBAND will NEVER request your password or personal information via email.
In order to guarantee the integrity of client data, we recommend downloading all mail from our mail server and backing up web pages and other files stored on our server.
Non-enforcement or waiver of any section of this agreement does not constitute consent or continuing waiver and MTC BROADBAND reserves the right to enforce this agreement at its sole discretion.
Accounts of subscribers filing for or adjudged bankrupt, insolvent or engaged in winding up will be terminated immediately upon notice of such status.
MTC BROADBAND is under the jurisdiction of the laws of the state of New York and this agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York and is subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York.
If any paragraph or part of this agreement is held to be unenforceable or invalid, the agreement shall remain in force and effect and the invalid portion of the agreement shall be treated as if omitted.
This agreement shall be made part of but shall survive any other account or subscription agreement entered by the parties hereto, unless otherwise specified. We reserve the right to amend our rules, regulations and prices without prior notice. The current terms can be found on the Web site http://www.mtcbroadband.net. Please check our price page for applicable account details.
MTC Broadband does not guarantee the performance of any unsupported peripheral devices connected to the network. MTC strives to provide the best possible internet connectivity to our customers and is continually working to insure interoperability with new products and devices available to consumers. Many of the newer consumer devices which utilize internet connectivity are set to communicate through “non-standard” port settings or configurations previously reserved for network administration or network security.
