Each customer (a "Customer") of NetroStar, Inc. ("NetroStar") who has executed a
Website Hosting Agreement (the "Agreement") or has opened an account with NetroStar
covenants and agrees to the following Website Hosting Use Policy (the "Policy"):
Each Customer is responsible for the activities of its users and, by accepting
service from NetroStar, is agreeing to ensure that they abide by this Policy. Complaints
about Customers or users of a Customer will be forwarded to the Customer for action.
If activity in violation of this Policy continues, then the Agreement may be subject
to termination or other action as NetroStar deems appropriate without notice. NetroStar
has the right to terminate the account of an offending Customer or take other action
as NetroStar deems appropriate without notice. NetroStar reserves the right to modify
this Policy at any time, effective upon posting to this site. NetroStar has no practical
ability to monitor all conduct, communications, or content which might violate this
Policy prior to its transmission on NetroStar's network. Therefore, NetroStar does
not assume liability to Customers for any violations of this Policy.

with users of NetroStar's network or other networks, or otherwise violate this Policy.
For example, and without limiting the scope of the foregoing, Customers shall not
utilize NetroStar's network to engage, attempt, or otherwise assist in (a) the distribution
of chain letters or UBE (unsolicited bulk electronic mail); (b) the propagation
of computer worms or viruses; (c) the impersonation of another person with fraudulent
or malicious intent; (d) the compromising of the security, or the unauthorized access,

laws concerning the transmission of technical data and other regulated materials
on the network.
- Dial-Up Account Inactivity Disconnect Policy.
Line camping and idle connections are not permitted. NetroStar reserves the
right to disconnect a dial-up account after 15 minutes of inactivity, as detected

to avoid an inactivity disconnect are strictly prohibited. "Electronic or mechanical
means" include, but are not limited to, "pinging" a server, employing electronic
or software autodialer features to maintain an active connection or repeatedly checking
for email by autolog-in to the mail server. NetroStar reserves the right to electronically
audit connections to enforce the above restrictions.

NetroStar may collect personal information for the purposes of billing, the
provision of customer service, network management, and the provision of offers of
related services. NetroStar will not disclose or share personally identifiable information

will use information received from Customers and other individuals only for the
purposes reasonably related to the subject matter of the communication. NetroStar
will not use personally identifiable information about the usage patterns of its
subscribers except for the provision of customized services. NetroStar will not
target children for collection of personal information. NetroStar will, however,
cooperate with the appropriate legal authorities in investigating claims of illegal

account involved, will be taken into account in determining the appropriate enforcement
action, which may include (a) the issuance of written or verbal warnings; (b) the
suspension or termination of the account; or (c) the billing and collection of reasonable
administrative and/or reactivation charges.
