The Junction Internet has published this Acceptable Use Policy as part of our overall effort to provide high-quality, reliable service to our customers; protect the privacy and security of our customers, systems, and networks; encourage responsible use of network resources; and comply with applicable laws.
When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that The Junction Internet cannot monitor, verify, warrant, or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that subscribers may acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet.
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet (known as “spamming”) is prohibited. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward The Junction Internet but also because it can overload The Junction Internet network and disrupt service to other subscribers.
It is illegal to copy or distribute copyrighted material if you do not have permission from the copyright owner. Most of the material (movies, TV shows, music, software) that is available with peer-to-peer file sharing software (BitTorrent, Limewire, etc) is not legal for you to download. You should also note that most file sharing software deceptively acts as a server on your computer to distribute the material you have downloaded. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may report alleged infringements. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content on, or disseminate any material or content over, the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law. This also includes to undertake or accomplish any unlawful purpose. This includes, but is not limited to, posting, storing, transmitting or disseminating information, data or material which is libelous, obscene, unlawful, threatening or defamatory, or which infringes the intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or which in any way constitutes or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, or otherwise violate any local, state, federal, or non-U.S. law, order, or regulation
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mailbombing, or denial of service attacks is prohibited. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service, or equipment are prohibited.
Violation of this Policy may result in civil or criminal liability, and The Junction Internet may, in addition to any remedy that it may have at law or in equity, terminate permission for the User to use the Services and charge the User any applicable cancellation or termination fee. In some cases it may be necessary to immediately block network connectivity to your computer. For this reason, The Junction Internet reserves the right to block network access to/from your machine without warning.
We are always available to assist you with questions or concerns that you have about responsible computing and policies.
