Mountain Telephone
Internet Services Acceptable Use Policy

  1. Introduction

Mountain Telephone’s Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is intended to help enhance the quality of the Internet by preventing unacceptable use. Furthermore, the AUP is designed to help protect Mountain Telephone, Mountain Telephone's customers and the Internet community in general from irresponsible or, in some cases, illegal activities. By using the Internet Services and/or Resources owned by Mountain Telephone, which includes Dial-Up, DSL, Website Hosting and other related services, you agree to abide by this AUP.

Mountain Telephone reserves the sole discretion to deny or restrict your Service, or immediately suspend or terminate your Service if you or anyone using the Services, in our sole discretion, violates the Agreement, other Mountain Telephone policies, or engages in any of the activities prohibited by this AUP, or if such use is objectionable, unlawful, or interferes with the functioning or use of the Internet or the Mountain Telephone network by Mountain Telephone or other users. Refer to Section 5 for more information. The failure of Mountain Telephone to enforce this AUP, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of any right to do so at any time.

Use of any of the Internet Services offered by Mountain Telephone by any customer will constitute acknowledgment of and agreement to the terms outlined in this AUP. Mountain Telephone reserves the right to modify the AUP at any time, effective upon posting at
http://www.mountaintelephone.com/Sub/AUP.html.

For the purpose of this AUP, the Customer shall sometimes be referred to as [User(s)].

  1. Privacy

  1. We will not release any of your personal identifying information to other people or agencies unless we receive an authorization from you, except under subpoena or by order of a court of competent jurisdiction. In addition, Mountain Telephone will cooperate with legal authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal or civil violations. Such cooperation may, but is not limited to, monitoring our network consistent with applicable law. In addition, Mountain Telephone is required by law to report any facts or circumstances reported to us or that we discover from which it appears that there may be a violation of child pornography laws. We reserve the right to report any such information, including the identity of users, account information, images and other facts to law enforcement representatives.

  2. Mountain Telephone reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this AUP, including the gathering of information from the user or users involved and the complaining party, if any, and examination of material on Mountain Telephone's servers and network. During an investigation, Mountain Telephone may suspend the account or accounts involved and/or remove or block material that potentially violates this AUP. You expressly authorize and consent to Mountain Telephone cooperating with (i) law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected legal violations, and (ii) system administrators at other Internet service providers or other network or computing facilities in order to enforce this AUP.

  3. Mountain Telephone will not sell or disclose customer’s contact information or customer lists to any third party, unless required by law, specifically authorized by customer, or as otherwise described in this AUP.

  4. Although you may want to use an alias or a fictitious username for your Mountain Telephone account, your full legal or entity identity (company) must be disclosed when you sign up with Mountain Telephone and updated as necessary Mountain Telephone will issue aliases based upon availability. You will surrender your alias if you change it or if your account is terminated for any reason. You recognize that you have no ownership or property interest in the alias issued by Mountain Telephone for your use.

  1. System Use Policies / Unacceptable Conduct.

Without limiting the general policy in Section 1, the following activities are listed as examples of conduct that may lead to limitation, suspension or termination of your service. Mountain Telephone may, but is not required to, monitor your compliance or the compliance of other subscribers with its terms, conditions or policies. You acknowledge that Mountain Telephone shall have the right, but not the obligation, to pre-screen, refuse, move or remove any content available on the Service, including but not limited to content that violates the law or this AUP.

  1. Transmission, distribution or storage of any material in violation of any applicable law or regulation is prohibited. This includes, without limitation, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right used without proper authorization, and material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws.

    1. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), an agent has been designated to receive notification of a claimed copyright infringement for Mountain Telephone. Any claims of copyright infringement should be directed to:

  1. Mountain Telephone provides Unlimited DSL as well as Full Service Dial-Up for Internet Access. This should not be construed to mean full time or completely unregulated access. There are a great many users sharing Mountain Telephone network facilities, and we are committed to providing good, consistent service to all customers. For this reason, the customer should observe the following guidelines in the usage of your Mountain Telephone account:

    1. Do not maintain a connection to your Dial-Up account when you are not actively using the Internet, and be sure to log out of the system when you are ready to end an Internet session.

    2. Multiple, simultaneous logins of the same account are prohibited. A Dial-Up service connection may be used from different computers that are owned by the customer, but only one connection at a time.

    3. Our network is configured to terminate your Dial-Up session after eight (8) hours. We do not mind if you log back in if you are disconnected, but unless you are paying for a dedicated / DSL connection, you should not expect to be able to stay logged on indefinitely.

    4. You are responsible for ensuring that Mountain Telephone Dial-Up access is a local call from your location. Mountain Telephone is not responsible for any local or long distance call charges or other phone company imposed fees and charges.

    5. Customer has no ownership of static IP numbers that may have been assigned to the customer by Mountain Telephone. Mountain Telephone reserves the right at any time to remove these static IP assignments with advance notice to the customer from Mountain Telephone. If deemed necessary, Mountain Telephone also reserves the right to reassign static IP allocation at its sole discretion.

    6. The services you purchase from Mountain Telephone are not transferable. The reselling of all Internet Access Services is strictly prohibited unless expressed permission is received in writing from Mountain Telephone. Internet Access Services are not to be shared with a second entity, extended, redistributed or retransmitted via wired or wireless networks outside the primary location without expressed permission in writing from Mountain Telephone.

    7. Mountain Telephone knows that a customer's use of available bandwidth may "peak" for short periods of time when viewing streaming video, uploading/downloading a large file or sending large e-mails, and Mountain Telephone will attempt to avoid limiting bandwidth availability in those instances. However, when a customer's peak use impacts the performance of other customers' services, Mountain Telephone reserves the right to take steps to maintain the integrity and performance characteristics of its network, which may include steps to limit your bandwidth. Mountain Telephone will use a network utilization, monitoring and reporting system to identify and confirm excessive use, Mountain Telephone’s network management practices are designed to function neutrally, permitting (1) access to lawful content of the subscriber’s choice, (2) running applications and accessing services of the subscriber’s choice (subject to the needs of law enforcement), and (3) connection to the subscriber’s choice of legal devices that do not harm the network. Mountain Telephone will make a good faith and reasonable effort to contact a customer Mountain Telephone believes is making excessive use of its Internet Services, currently defined as exceeding 100 Gbytes per month, prior to limiting bandwidth, and to discuss ways the customer may avoid such limitation. However, customers whom Mountain Telephone determines to be making excessive use of Mountain Telephone Internet Services may have service limited, metered, suspended or, if necessary, terminated.

  1. Sending uninvited communications, data or information, including, without limitation, “flaming,” or Unsolicited Bulk Email ("UBE", "spam") through Mountain Telephone servers is prohibited. Likewise, the sending of UBE from another service provider advertizing a web site, email address or utilizing any resource hosted on Mountain Telephone servers, is prohibited. Mountain Telephone accounts or services may not be used to solicit customers from, or collect replies to, messages sent from another Internet Service Provider where those messages violate this AUP or that of the other provider.

  2. Running Unconfirmed Mailing Lists. Subscribing email addresses to any mailing list without the express and verifiable permission of the email address owner is prohibited. All mailing lists run by Mountain Telephone customers must be Closed-loop ("Confirmed Opt-in"). The subscription confirmation message received from each address owner must be kept on file for the duration of the existence of the mailing list. Purchasing lists of email addresses from 3rd parties for mailing to/from any Mountain Telephone hosted domain, or referencing any Mountain Telephone account, is prohibited.

  3. Advertising, transmitting, or otherwise making available any software, program, product, or service that is designed to violate this AUP or the AUP of any other Internet Service Provider, which includes, but is not limited to, the facilitation of the means to send Unsolicited Bulk Email, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail-bombing, or denial of service attacks.

  4. Operating an account on behalf of, or in connection with, or reselling any service to, persons or firms listed in the Spamhaus Register of Known Spam Operations (ROKSO) database at www.spamhaus.org.

  5. Unauthorized attempts by a user to gain access to any account or computer resource not belonging to that user (e.g., "cracking") are prohibited.

  6. Intercepting, interfering with or redirecting email or other transmissions sent by or to others is prohibited.

  7. Introducing viruses, worms, harmful code or Trojan horses is prohibited.

  8. Defamatory conduct is prohibited.

  9. Obtaining or attempting to obtain any of the Internet Services by any means or device with intent to avoid payment is prohibited.

  12. Using Mountain Telephone Internet Services to interfere with the use of the Mountain Telephone network by other customers or authorized users is prohibited.

  14. Sexually explicit and patently offensive content; materials that otherwise violate federal, state or local law; and materials and content that threaten the security or utility of the Mountain Telephone network, are strictly forbidden in any Mountain Telephone Web service to which you subscribe -- personal or commercial.

  18. Harm to minors. Using the Internet Services to harm, or attempt to harm, minors in any way is prohibited.
