Rates and Charges. NetOne will charge Customer the subscription fees as set forth in NetOne's current rate schedule. Refunds will be prorated. Customer is responsible for all acts initiated from his/her account. Customer should not share his/her password. Revisions in the rate schedule which result in any price increases will become effective thirty (30) days after NetOne provides written or electronic (E-mail) notice to Customer of its intent to revise such rates and charges.
Payment. Customer agrees to pay all charges incurred.
The Insufficient Funds Fee will be $25.00 per incident.
DSL Repair charges, if applicable, will be charged on to the customer. These fees are charged by the Telephone Company and are not within the control of NetOne Communications, Inc. Typical charges range from $50 to $150 per incident.

If payment is not received within seven (7) days of the invoice date;
If Customer violates the Acceptable Use Policy set forth in Paragraph 5 below;
If Customer breaches any term of this Agreement;
Upon thirty (30) days written notice.
Acceptable Use Policy. Customer agrees:
to use the Internet system in a manner that is ethical and in conformity with community standards;
to respect the privacy of other users (e.g., Customer shall not intentionally seek data or passwords belonging to other users or modify files or represent himself/herself as another user unless explicitly authorized to do so by that user);
not to violate any copyright law, trade secret law, or other laws protecting intellectual property;
to respect the integrity of computing systems (e.g., Customer shall not intentionally develop programs that harass other users or infiltrate a computer or computing system);
to refrain from creating routing patterns that are inconsistent with the effective and shared use of the network; and
not to post unsolicited advertising except to those mailing lists or news groups that explicitly allow advertising. If NetOne learns of a violation or potential violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, NetOne will attempt to notify the Customer. If the Customer does not take immediate remedial action which is satisfactory to NetOne, or in the event of a serious violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, NetOne reserves the right to terminate Customer's connection immediately. Every effort will be made to inform Customer prior to the disconnection of any such violation and efforts will be made to re-establish Customer's connection upon receiving such representations from Customer as NetOne deems appropriate in the circumstances. Customer agrees to indemnify and hold NetOne harmless from any claim resulting from Customer's use of the service which damages any person.
Installation of Software. NetOne will provide Customer with limited telephone support to assist Customer in connecting to NetOne service. Due to the complexity of modern telecommunications, NetOne cannot assure that Customer will be successful in securing a reliable connection. If Customer is unable to secure a reliable connection, NetOne will refund Customer's subscription fee and immediately terminate this Agreement.
Use of other networks may require approval of their authorities.

NetOne reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of this Agreement by giving Customer notice at least thirty (30) days in advance of the effective date of the change.
