NewNet 66 Acceptable Use Policy
NewNet 66 fully supports acceptable use policies
implemented by our member districts and partners.
1. Users may not attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, or account ("cracking"). This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the user, logging into a server or account the user is not expressly authorized to access, or probing the security of other networks (such as running a Network scan or similar tool).
2. Users may not attempt to interfere with service to any user, host, or network ("denial of service attacks"). This includes, but is not limited to, "flooding" of networks, deliberate attempts to overload a service, and attempts to "crash" a host.
3. Users may not use any kind of program/script/command, or send messages of any kind, designed to interfere with a user's session, via any means, locally or by the Internet.
4. Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. NewNet 66 will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. E-mail Harassment, whether through language, frequency, or size of messages, is prohibited.
1. Users may not send email to any person who does not wish to receive it. If a recipient asks to stop receiving email, the user must not send that person any further email.
2. Users are explicitly prohibited from sending unsolicited bulk mail messages ("junk mail" or "spam"). This includes, but is not limited to, bulk-mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements, and political tracts. Such material may only be sent to those who have explicitly requested it.
3. Malicious email, including but not limited to "mailbombing" (flooding a user or site with very large or numerous pieces of email), is prohibited.
4. Forging of email header information in any deceitful manner is not permitted.
5. NewNet 66 accounts or services may not be used to collect replies to messages sent from another Internet Service Provider, where those messages violate this Acceptable Use Policy or the Acceptable Use Policy of that other provider.
