    Upon discovery of such activity, we WILL inform the appropriate authorities.
    People sometimes have trouble determining whether certain activities are illegal. It's usually not that hard. If it's illegal "out there," it's illegal "in HERE"! Using us to commit a crime doesn't make it any less a crime. In fact, if you use us to commit a crime, you're exposing the operators of the system and its other callers, to legal risks that should be yours alone.
    If you genuinely do not know whether something you'd like to do is legal or illegal, please discuss it with us before you proceed. And if we tell you we do not want you to pursue your plans on our system, please respect our decision.

    NO RESELLING OF YOUR ACCOUNT
    This is closely related to the above policy. Your UNLIMITED Account is meant to be FOR YOU to be used BY YOU. If you are dialing into us to provide internet services to a BBS, a network of computers, you are overstepping the scope of your dialup account, and must have us quote you for a commercial or business account.

    PAYMENT FOR YOUR ACCOUNT
    All customers and subscribers of Ultra-Vision agree unconditionally to the payment terms set fourth in their service agreement, i.e. All fees will normally be invoiced on the anniversary of the sign up date and the terms will be net fifteen (15) days. If payment is not received according to the terms, services will be discontinued and an additional setup fee in the 
    amount of $25.00 may be required to reconnect services.

    REFUNDS
    All Refunds will be handled as follows:
  • No refunds on monthly accounts that have successfully connected
  • No refunds on any other account after one month of service.
  • An amount equal to the current monthly rate and setup fee will be deducted from any refund on accounts that have successfully connected.

    NO PONZI SCHEMES, SPAM, OR CHAIN LETTERS.
    This includes, but is not limited to: "David Rhodes" letters, Make Money Fast letters, multi-level money scams & other pyramid schemes. We do NOT want our customers falling prey to hoaxes. This ALSO APPLIES to USENET SPAMMING or EXCESSIVE CROSSPOSTING to USENET Groups. We're a big happy internet community, and Ultra-Vision Internet does its part to make it a safe and fun one.

    CHANGES & STATUS
    We reserve the right to make ANY changes to to the system in ANY way without prior notice. This includes but is not limited to our rates, services offered, access numbers & online availability.

    OUR RIGHTS
    We reserve the right to delete ANY ACCOUNT regardless of Member status. This is to give us power over trouble-makers who are affecting the online sessions of other users. (Fair enough?)
    A SURE way to get deleted or suspended is to ABUSE, BASH or in any other way HARASS other users, thereby affecting their online enjoyment. And you'd also get NO REFUND of unused time.
