Web Page Content
Classic Service reserves the right to remove any page at any time for any reason.
Classic Service sells unlimited accounts for interactive use. This means that the holder of an account must be using the service while an account is dialed in. Users are not allowed to "pin up" a connection under any circumstances. In other words, an unlimited account exists so you can enjoy using the Internet without having to keep an eye on the clock.
To "Pin Up" a connection is running a program that will simulate interactive use by a user in an attempt to keep a connection when a user is not using the account. Please note that having your email program check your email on a regular basis when you're not doing anything else is considered an attempt to pin up a connection. If all you want to do is check your email then dial in, check you email and hang up.
Allowing others to use your account is a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy. This includes dialing in multiple computers, all of which being used by the legitimate user, at the same time. The right to use your account cannot be assigned/transferred to others.
Posting inappropriate material to one or more Usenet News groups is considered "SPAM" or "spamming". Spam or spamming is prohibited. Any person that spams a newsgroup from Classic Service will be terminated. Unfortunately this course of action is necessary because when a user spams our system administrators have to answer many complaint emails about the incident.
Unsolicited Commercial Email
Sending Unsolicited Commercial Email is a terminating offence without refund, without question.
