Electronic mail and appropriate USENET newsgroups may be used in the conduct of legitimate businesses.

Continued harassment of other individuals on the Internet after being asked to stop by those individuals and Softec will not be tolerated.

If the User is unsure of those policies, it is the User's responsibility to ascertain said policies.
- Payment Terms:
- The User is responsible for any and all fixed and accumulative charges for this account. The first month service fee (orother available billing period selected) is due upon account setup. Each month (or other billing period selected), on the date of the application, the account will be charged the monthly access and any other fees for the new month plus any accumulated charges for the past month. Unused free hours do not accrue from one month to the next. Failure to use this account(s) does not relieve the user of payment obligations.
- Credit Card customers agree to allow Softec to bill such card on each successive billing date automatically after the initial charge and account setup. User agrees to allow Softec to make the automatic monthly charge without separate authorization from the account holder. Credit Card customers shall notify Softec of any changes in Credit Card Number or expiration date. If the card is not honored for any reason Softec will attempt to notify the card holder from telephone information given at sign-up. Softec may also attempt to contact the card holder ONE time, via the email address provided at subscription. If alternative billing is not established within seven (7) days the account will be terminated. Re-establishment of the account will be subject to a $5.00 reconnection fee.
- If payment is by check, payment due dates are indicated on your invoice, which will arrive via email and contains your user identification and password. Dishonored checks are subject to a collection fee and your account may be suspended until the account is current. If payment is not received within 7 days of the due date, service will be terminated.
- Softec has the right to instantly terminate service for any unpaid or partial paid subscriptions. Accounts in default are subject to an interest charge of 1.5% per month on the outstanding balance. Termination of service shall not relieve the user from the obligation to satisfy outstanding invoices. In the event Softec utilizes an attorney to collect such sums, the user shall be responsible for the payment of all of Softec attorneys' fees and costs in pursuing the collection of these sums.
- Softec reserves the right to cancel service for any reason without prior notice. In case of cancellation, unused fees may be returned to the user on a pro-rata basis.
