Any customer or user can upload or download material on the IwayNet system subject to the following conditions. Copyrighted material can only be placed on IwayNet systems with the author's permission. The customer or users cannot download copyrighted material or public domain material without express permission from the author. The customer or user assumes all risks in determining whether such material is copyrighted or public domain.

The customer or user shall obey IwayNet acceptable use policies. Although the IwayNet system is on a commercial exchange, the customer or user assumes all the risks of transferring prohibited material across restrictive networks and transgressing their acceptable use policies. Otherwise, the Internet can be used for business purposes in almost all cases. Expressly prohibited activities include advertising or sending promotional materials to others without prior express agreement from such others. Posting advertisements to inappropriate USENET newsgroups is also expressly prohibited. Implicitly prohibited activities include the unlicensed international export of various materials. The customer or user is responsible for learning these policies.

The customer or user will not attempt to undermine, hinder, damage, or disrupt the hardware, software, or security of the IwayNet Internet system or the Internet and its systems. Expressly prohibited activities include putting any software on the system enabling the user to do so or running any programs while not actively on the system.

IwayNet will maintain the strict privacy of all customer and user accounts except in the case of court order. IwayNet, however, does not guarantee the safety, accuracy, or content of any materials or information on the Internet or any materials the customer transfers or receives on the Internet. The customer or user acknowledges that all information obtained on the Internet or IwayNet is provided without warranty of any kind and that the customer's or user's risk of acting on such information is entirely his/her own.

While IwayNet makes every effort to respect and protect the privacy of our users, occasions demand that IwayNet system administrators inspect user directories when evidence of possible system security breaches is presented. ANY USER FILE MAY BE INSPECTED BY IwayNet SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS. As such, IwayNet recommends to its users that they keep any sensitive or personal information (including mail) on their local machine. IwayNet Customer Support representatives can assist users in moving mail and files to their local machine to further safeguard their contents. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL USER MAIL OR FILES BE DISCLOSED BY IwayNet SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS TO ANY THIRD PARTY WITHOUT A VALID COURT ORDER.

Electronic Communication Privacy Statement: This service makes no guarantee of the security of materials, mail, data, or other electronic communication formats transmitted on, via, or through Iway Network Consulting, Inc.

Users may not use IwayNet FTP service or it analogues to attempt to transfer any files not specifically permitted, or access hosts which do not permit anonymous transfers (unless the transfer is to or from an account you are authorized to access on the remote host).

Any attempt to cause traffic levels to IwayNet or other networks to rise without reason or for malicious purpose (i.e.: transmitting large files to people for malicious purposes, "mailbombing", transmissions intended to increase the cost of another net work provider's access through excessive traffic levels, etc).
