Acceptable Use Policy
This acceptable use policy (“AUP”) establishes an agreement
between FreeW3 Incorporated (“FreeW3”) and its subscribers (“You”,
“you”, “Your”, “your”). It has been designed
to define the responsible use of the Internet and FreeW3 services (“Service”),
and to avoid practices which degrade their usability. FreeW3 is a sponsor
and promoter-subsidized Internet Service Provider. There are no recurring
charges assessed by FreeW3 to you for the use of Service. However, you
may incur 3rd party charges outlined in the section entitled “WARRANTIES/DISCLAIMERS”.
ONE TIME SETUP FEE
A one-time, non-refundable setup charge (Setup Fee) of $99 for residential
subscribers and $149 for commercial subscribers (Startup fee based on
cash payment), plus tax where applicable, must be paid prior to account
activation and use of Service. You are required to be familiar with this
policy before using the Service. If you use the Service in any way then
you agree to accept this AUP and adhere to it.
By accepting this AUP, you certify that you are at least eighteen (18)
years of age. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a minor, you
may authorize the minor’s use of the Service and you hereby agree
to assume any and all liabilities resulting from the minor’s use
of the Service. FreeW3 believes that children should get their parents’
consent before giving out any information. FreeW3 encourages parents to
participate in their children’s Internet experience. FreeW3 makes
no warranties of any kind for its Service, whether expressed or implied.
FreeW3 specifically disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability
or fitness for any particular purpose. FreeW3 will not be held responsible
for any losses or damages resulting from delays, non-deliveries, mis-deliveries,
service interruption, computer viruses, operating system failure or interruption
of the Service, FreeW3’s software/service installation or usage, or FreeW3’s
errors or omissions. FreeW3 will not under any circumstances be responsible
for consequential damages. FreeW3 does not guarantee connectivity at any
time, for any length of time, or at any speed. Additional statements such

you to purchase goods or incur other charges to third parties. You are
responsible for all activities and charges resulting from the use of your
account. You are also responsible for all charges (associated with connecting
to the Service through an available access number for example, telephone
or ADSL charges). You are further responsible for obtaining or providing
all equipment necessary to access service including, but not limited to,
telephone, computer (including modem), or other equipment necessary to
access the Service. You are responsible for determining whether the access
number you use to connect to the Service will obligate you to pay telephone
use charges to your telephone company.
COMPLIANCE WITH ALL LAWS
You may only use the network for lawful purposes. The use of the FreeW3
network or systems in violation of any United States legislation or regulation
is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, transmission of copyright

result in termination of your account. FreeW3 acts as a contracted agent
between you and its sponsors. The sponsors provide funding for the Service
through advertising and subsidization. The sponsors submit promotions

of the sponsors. FreeW3 does not release your information to its sponsors.

where it is necessary to protect FreeW3’s legal rights, or in an emergency
where FreeW3 reasonably believes someone’s safety is at risk; disclosure
of any subscriber information under these circumstances will be no greater
than necessary to resolve the issue presented. All subscriber information
we gather is stored on secure and protected computer systems, which FreeW3

or authorized representatives may access these computers. FreeW3 employees
are prohibited from using this information except as necessary to provide
