ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
(Last revised on 10/20/2010)

The Minnesota MicroNet Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) explains activities which are explicitly prohibited by customers using Minnesota MicroNet's network services. Engaging in any of these activities can be considered grounds for account termination. This list is by no means exhaustive and will be updated as necessary. Minnesota MicroNet reserves the right to determine what is acceptable use of our network.

Our policies were designed with the following goals in mind:

Ensure the security, reliability and performance of our network.

Because our network is a shared resource, ensure fair and equitable distribution of resources for all customers.

Encourage the responsible use of net resources, discouraging practices which degrade the usability of network resources and thus the value of Internet services.

Preserve the privacy and security of individual users.

We ask for your cooperation in adhering to the following policies so our network can run as fast and smoothly as possible for all that use it.

GENERAL POLICIES:

  1. Your account must be used for lawful activities only.

  2. Beware of copyright violations.

  3. Do not attempt to hack, crack or probe other networks or other accounts.

  4. Do not post commercial web pages on personal websites.

  5. Do not post adult or highly offensive material to websites.
E-MAIL POLICIES:
  1. Do not forge mail addresses.

  2. Do not send chain letters.

  3. Do not send harassing email , whether through language, frequency, or size of messages.

  4. Do not send email to any person who does not wish to receive it.

  5. Do not spread any kind of Internet myth or hoax. Become an informed Internet user and visit these websites:
    http://www.snopes.com/*
    http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/hoax.html*
BULK MAIL AND MAILING LISTS:
  1. Unsolicited bulk mail (spam) of any kind is strictly prohibited.

  2. Any other bulk mail must be Confirmed Opt-in (aka double opt-in or closed loop opt-in). You must maintain complete and accurate records of all consents and confirmed opt-ins and be prepared to present those records in case a spam complaint is filed against you.

    Confirmed Opt-in means a user has explicitly subscribed or requested to be added to a mailing list and you have confirmed their email address. Confirmation is usually done by responding to a confirmation email sent to the email address the end user specified. The confirmed opt-in method ensures that no person can subscribe someone else out of malice or error.

    You are not be permitted to use any mailing list that you were given or purchased. Doing so will be considered spamming and may result in termination of the offending account.

    Legacy lists that are not confirmed opt-in will need to be converted to a confirmed opt-in list.

  3. Commercial bulk mail must conform to CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. More details can be found at:

  4. Any bulk mail sent through another server that references your email address, domain or Website hosted here must also conform to these rules.

  5. Every message should contain instructions how to unsubscribe. Unsubscribe requests should be processed within 10 days.

  6. False or misleading mail headers are prohibited.
