National Wi-Fi’s Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) is intended to help enhance the use of the Internet by preventing unacceptable use. All users of National Wi-Fi’s Internet service (“Service”) including those who access our Service but do not have accounts (“Visitors”), as well as those who pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Service (“Members”) must comply with this AUP. You are responsible for any misuse of the Service, even if the misuse was committed by a friend, family member, or guest with access to your Service account. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not use your account to gain unauthorized access to the Service by, for example, strictly maintaining the confidentiality of your Service login and password. In all cases, you are solely responsible for the security of any device you choose to connect to the Service, including any data stored or shared on that device.
National Wi-Fi supports the free flow of information and ideas over the Internet and does not actively monitor use of the Service under normal circumstances. Similarly, National Wi-Fi does not exercise editorial control over the content of any Web site, electronic mail transmission, news group, or other material created or accessed over or through the Service, except for certain proprietary websites. However, in National Wi-Fi’s effort to promote good citizenship within the Internet community, National Wi-Fi will respond appropriately if it becomes aware of inappropriate use of our Service. Although National Wi-Fi has no obligation to monitor the Service and/or the network, National Wi-Fi reserves the right at any time to monitor bandwidth, usage, transmissions, and content from time to time to operate the Service; to identify violations of the AUP; and/or to protect the network, the Service and National Wi-Fi users. National Wi-Fi prefers to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action. However, if the Service is used in a way that National Wi-Fi, in their sole discretion, believes violates this AUP, National Wi-Fi may take any responsive actions they deem appropriate. These actions include, but are not limited to, suspension or termination of your account, billing you for administrative costs and/or reactivation charges. Neither National Wi-Fi nor its affiliates, or agents will have any liability for any of these responsive actions. These actions are not National Wi-Fi’s exclusive remedies and National Wi-Fi may take any other legal or technical action it deems appropriate. National Wi-Fi reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this AUP, including the gathering of information from the user or users involved and the complaining party, if any, and examination of material on National Wi-Fi’s servers and network. You expressly authorize National Wi-Fi to cooperate with (i) law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected legal violations, and (ii) system administrators at other Internet service providers or other network or computing facilities in order to enforce this policy. This cooperation may include National Wi-Fi providing available personally identifiable information about you to law enforcement or system administrators, including, but not limited to, username, subscriber name, and other account information. This AUP should be read in conjunction with our other policies.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless National Wi-Fi and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents against all claims and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) resulting from you engaging in any of the prohibited activities listed in this AUP or resulting from your violation of the AUP or of any other posted National Wi-Fi policy related to the Service. Your indemnification will survive any termination of the Subscriber Agreement.

l. NEWS – National Wi-Fi Members should use their best judgment when posting to any news group. Many groups have charters, published guidelines, FAQs, or “community standards” describing what is and is not considered appropriate. Usenet can be a valuable resource if used properly. The continued posting of off-topic articles is prohibited. Commercial advertisements are off-topic in most news groups, especially regional groups not specifically named for such. The presence of such articles in a group is not indicative of the group’s “intended” use. Please familiarize yourself with basic Usenet etiquette before posting to a newsgroup.
m. HIGH VOLUME USE – Using a personal account for high volume or commercial use is prohibited. The Services are intended for periodic, active use of e-mail, news groups, file transfers, Internet chat, games and browsing the World Wide Web.

National WiFi is committed to respecting Customer’s privacy. As explained below, Customer’s personally identifiable information will only be used in the context of customer’s relationship with National WiFi, including service and billing functions and informing Customer of products and services of potential interest.
On various National WiFi web pages Customer can order services, make requests, and register to receive materials or support. The types of personal information collected at these pages are name, username, contact and billing information, transaction, and credit card information. Data collected online may also be combined with information provided during ownership registration of National WiFi products and services. In order to tailor subsequent communications and continuously improve products and services, National WiFi may ask Customer to voluntarily provide information regarding Customer’s personal or professional interests, demographics, product experience, and contact information.
National WiFi uses Customer’s information to better understand customer needs and continuously improve the level of service provided. Specifically, Customer’s information is used to help complete a transaction, to communicate back to Customer, to update Customer on service and benefits, and to personalize National WiFi ‘s web site. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not utilized for other purposes.
From time to time, National WiFi may use Customer’s information to contact Customer for market research or to provide Customer with information thought to be of particular interest. At a minimum, Customer will have the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. Where applicable, National WiFi will also follow local requirements such as allowing Customer to opt in before receiving an unsolicited contact.
National WiFi strives to keep Customer’s personally identifiable information accurate. Every effort is made to provide Customer with online access to Customer’s registration data so that Customer may update or correct Customer’s information at any time. National WiFi is committed to ensuring the security of Customer’s information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, appropriate procedures are in place to safeguard and secure the information collected online. National WiFi uses encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
National WiFi may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when Customer visits National WiFi ‘s web-site. National WiFi accomplishes this through the use of “cookies” or tracking mechanisms that collect this type of information. If Customer does not want this to happen or wants to know when it does happen, Customer’s browser should be set to warn Customer or to block cookies (although blocking cookies may affect Customer’s use of certain sites). In addition,
National WiFi or others may use small bits of code called “one-pixel gifs” or “clear gifs” embedded in some web pages to make cookies more effective.
National WiFi has put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information National WiFi collects online. However, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. While National WiFi strives to protect Customer’s information, National WiFi cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information Customer transmits to
National WiFi . Any such transmission is done at Customer’s own risk. Neither people nor security systems are foolproof, and people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies. Although National WiFi takes certain precautions, National WiFi does not guarantee security. Additionally, it may be possible for third parties to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. Customer assumes the risk of any failure of security and agrees to do what Customer reasonably can to promote security.
