Acceptable Use Policy

Our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is meant to help protect you, our customer, and the Internet community, from irresponsible and/or illegal activities. As good net citizens, we prohibit the impersonation of others, unsolicited commercial appeals, and any disruption of Internet services. Examples of such activities are given below. These examples are in no way the only prohibited activities, and Valley Telecom Internet will be the sole judge of whether any activity is acceptable.

2. Usenet News

Newsgroup Spamming

Excessive cross posting, or posting the same article to several newsgroups, is prohibited. Generally accepted standards allow no more than 15 newsgroups, or cross-postings, for a single article or substantially similar articles. Such articles may be canceled. Excessive cross posting will result in account termination.

Off-Topic or Inappropriate Posting

There is no restriction on content, except as defined by each newsgroup. Continued posting of off-topic articles in any newsgroup is prohibited. Please note that most newsgroups consider any kind of commercial advertisement off-topic.
