You may not:
• Use or run dedicated, stand-alone equipment or servers from your premises that provide network content or any other services to anyone outside of your premises unless you are subject to a Service plan that expressly permits you to do so. Examples of prohibited equipment and servers include, but are not limited to, email, Web hosting, file sharing, and proxy services and servers;
• Restrict, inhibit, or otherwise interfere with the ability of any other person, regardless of intent, purpose or knowledge, to use or enjoy the Service, including, without limitation, posting or transmitting any information or software which contains a worm, virus, or other harmful feature, or generating levels of traffic sufficient to impede others’ ability to use, send, or retrieve information;
• Restrict, inhibit, interfere with, or otherwise disrupt or cause performance degradation, regardless of intent, purpose or knowledge, to the Service;
• Resell the Service or otherwise make available to anyone outside your premises the ability to use the Service (for example, though Wi-Fi or other methods of networking), in whole or in part, directly or indirectly. The Service is for personal or business use only and you agree not to use the Service for operation as an Internet service provider;
• Connect the Net Vision Equipment to any computer outside of your premises;
• Interfere with computer networking or telecommunications service to any user, host or network, including, without limitation, denial of service attacks, flooding of a network, over loading the Service, improper seizing and abusing operator privileges, and attempts to “crash” a host; and
• Access or use the Service with anything other than a dynamic Internet Protocol (“IP”) address that adheres to the dynamic host configuration protocol (“DHCP”). You may not configure the Service or any related equipment to access or use a static IP address or use any protocol other than DHCP unless you are subject to a Service plan that expressly permits you to do so.
Net Vision reserves the right to refuse to transmit or post, and to remove or block, any information or materials, in whole or in part, that it, in its sole discretion, deems to be in violation of the restrictions enumerated above, that harm its network or other customers using the Service, or that negatively affect its network or other customers using the Service. Net Vision and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents reserve the right to monitor customer transmissions and to disclose, block, or remove them in order to enforce the restrictions in this Policy.
Net Vision manages its network with one goal: to deliver the best possible broadband Internet experience to all of its customers. High-speed bandwidth and network resources are not unlimited. If the company did not manage its network, its customers would be subject to the negative effects of spam, viruses, security attacks, network congestion, and other risks and degradations of service. By engaging in responsible network management, Net Vision can deliver the best possible broadband Internet experience to all of its customers. The company uses reasonable network management practices that are consistent with industry standards. While Net Vision tries to use tools and technologies that are minimally intrusive, its network management practices will change and evolve along with the uses of the Internet and the challenges and threats on the Internet. The tools and techniques that Net Vision uses to manage its network can and do change frequently. For example, these network management activities may include, but may not be limited to, (i) identifying spam and preventing its delivery to customer email accounts, (ii) detecting malicious Internet traffic and preventing the distribution of viruses or other harmful code or content, (iii) temporarily delaying or terminating to or from high-bandwidth users during periods of high network congestion, and (iv) using other tools and techniques that Net Vision may be required to implement in order to meet its goal of delivering the best possible broadband Internet experience to all of its customers. Net Vision also reserves the right to suspend or terminate Service accounts where bandwidth consumption is not characteristic of a typical user of the Service as determined by Net Vision in its sole discretion. You must also ensure that your use of the Service does not restrict, inhibit, interfere with, or degrade any other person’s use of the Service, or represent (as determined by Net Vision in its sole discretion) an overly large burden on the network. In addition, you must ensure that your use of the Service does not limit or interfere with Net Vision’s ability to deliver and monitor the Service or any part of its network. If you use the Service in violation of the restrictions referenced above, that is a violation of this Policy. In these cases, Net Vision may, in its sole discretion, suspend or terminate your Service account or request that you subscribe to a different version of the Service if you wish to continue to use the Service at higher bandwidth consumption levels. Net Vision may also provide versions of the Service with different speed and bandwidth consumption limitations, among other characteristics, subject to applicable Service plans. Net Vision reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this Policy, including the gathering of information from the user or users involved. During an investigation, Net Vision may suspend the account or accounts involved and/or remove or block material that potentially violates this Policy. You expressly authorize and consent to Net Vision and its suppliers cooperating with (i) law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected legal violations, and (ii) and system administrators at other Internet service providers or other network or computing facilities in order to enforce this Policy. Upon termination of your Service account, Net Vision is authorized to delete any files, programs, data, e-mail and other messages associated with your account (and any secondary accounts). The rights of Net Vision specified under this Policy are in addition to any others that it may have under other Policies, your Customer or User Agreement or otherwise.
Standard network connections typically download as described, but your actual results may vary due to items outside a provider’s control, including equipment used and external conditions.

The Subscriber shall have the right, for a period of 15 days after the promulgation of any amendments to the Terms and Conditions to terminate service.
