J. Collection of personal data. Using the Services to collect, or attempt to collect, personal information about third parties without their knowledge or consent.
K. Reselling the services. Reselling the Services without FB Net's written authorization.
L. Network disruptions and unfriendly activity. Using the Services for any activity that adversely affects the ability of other people or systems to use FB Net's Services or the Internet. This includes "denial of service" (DOS) attacks against another network host or individual user. Interference with or disruption of other network users, network services, websites or network equipment is prohibited. It is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that their network is configured in a secure manner. A Customer may not, through action or inaction, allow others to use their network or access for illegal or inappropriate actions. A Customer may not permit their network, through action or inaction, to be configured in such a way that gives a third party the capability to use their network in an illegal or inappropriate manner.
M. News. FB Net Customers should use their best judgment when posting to any newsgroup or chat room. 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 newsgroups, 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 netiquette before posting to a newsgroup.
FB Net considers "multiposting" to 10 or more groups within any ten day period to be excessive.
FB Net Customers may not cancel messages other than their own messages. A Customer may cancel posts forged in that Customer's name. FB Net may cancel any postings that violate this AUP.
N. Long Connections and Multiple Logins. Using a personal account for high volume or commercial use is prohibited. The Services are intended for periodic, active use of e-mail, newsgroups, file transfers, Internet chat, games, and browsing the World Wide Web. Customers must be actively using that connection for the above purposes. Customers may not use the Services on a standby or inactive basis in order to maintain a connection. Pinging is expressly prohibited. Accordingly, FB Net maintains the right to terminate any Customer's connection following any extended period of inactivity as determined by FB Net in its sole discretion.
O. Web Pages and Data Storage. With FB Net you generally have the option of contracting for a set amount of storage area or choosing a plan that provides a set amount of storage and automatically allows excess storage above that amount for an additional charge. If you contracted only for a set amount of storage, exceeding the data storage you have contracted for on FB Net's equipment is prohibited and you agree that FB Net may, as it sees fit and without notice or liability, remove files that exceed your limit. Web pages must not violate applicable law. If access to your files or web pages by others results in excessive traffic or system loads, FB Net may remove or block access to files or web pages as it deems fit.
