Terms of Service
1. You represent that you are at least eighteen years old. You are entirely liable for all activities conducted through your account.
2. You are responsible for providing, operating and maintaining the necessary cabling, computer hardware and software used for this service at your site. All local access installation costs are your responsibility. It is understood that LANline does not normally own or control the various cable, telecommunications or other facilities to which it may provide access, except those specifically identified as belonging to LANline. Arrangements for use of, or access to, such facilities must be made with those who own or control them, which is normally your local Internet Service Provider.
3. For use of LANline’s services, you shall commit to pay LANline the full-service costs. Service Commencement is initiated on the basis of the service being installed or configured, whichever is first. LANline will charge your credit card monthly for any amount due. In the absence of a credit card, you shall commit to LANline through check or ACH payment the full service costs payable within 30 days of the first of the month after Service Commencement occurs.
4. These Terms and Conditions shall extend from the initial Service Commencement date for one period, as defined by the duration of the billing plan you selected at sign-up, and shall continue period-by-period based upon your use of the service until you cancel the service. You shall remain responsible for all relevant fees for any service used. The term “relevant fees” refers to the published price of the Services. You are responsible for notifying LANline of any changes in your name, address, or credit card information. Termination of the Services service will only be accepted in writing, fax or e-mail. LANline can terminate this account at will for any reason it solely determines. You specifically waive the right to sue or ability to subrogate those rights for any losses. LANline will not refund any unused portion of the service.
5. All notices given by you or required under these Terms and Conditions shall be in writing and addressed to LANline Communications Inc., 65 Court Street, Suite 32, White Plains, NY 10601, faxed to (914) 397-0505, Attn.: Billing, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. No other termination mechanisms are acceptable.
6. You shall not sell, transfer, or assign these Terms and Conditions without the prior written consent of LANline. Any act in derogation of the foregoing shall be null and void; provided, however, that any such assignment shall not relieve you of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
7. LANline exercises no control whatsoever over the content of the information passing through its circuits, servers and network. LANline makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, for the service it is providing. LANline also disclaims any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and any obligation to maintain the confidentiality of information, although LANline’s current practice is to utilize reasonable efforts to maintain such confidentiality. LANline will not be responsible for any damage you suffer from use of the Services. This includes loss of data resulting from delays, nondeliveries, misdeliveries, or service interruptions caused by its own negligence or your error or omissions, or due to inadvertent release or disclosure of information sent by you. Use of any information obtained via the Services is at your own risk. LANline specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through its services.
8. LANline services may only be used for lawful purposes and in accordance with the Acceptable Use and Billing Policy. Transmission of any material in violation of any local, state, Federal or international regulation(s) is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless LANline from any claims resulting from your use of the service which damages you or another party.
9. The use of LANline services to transmit certain kinds of information (including without limitation, computer software and other technical data) may violate export control laws and regulations of the United States, whether that information is received abroad or by foreign nationals within the United States. Since LANline exercises no control whatsoever over the content of information passing through its Services and network, the entire burden of complying with such laws and regulations rests with its customers. You agree to comply with such laws and regulations and to indemnify and hold LANline harmless from any damages it may suffer resulting from any violation of the export control laws of the United States.
10. Except for the indemnity provisions in Sections 8 and 9, neither party shall be liable to the other for any loss, damage, liability, claim or expense arising out of or in relation to these Terms and Conditions or the provision of the LANline services used, however caused, whether grounded in contract, tort (including negligence) or theory of strict liability. In no event shall either party be liable for any loss of data or profits through use of the Services, or for any special, incidental, indirect or consequential damages arising out of or in relation to these Terms and Conditions.
11. All services to be provided by the Customer either in part or in total through LANline are subject to relevant Federal and State and International regulations. If these same services are offered through other networks, LANline accepts no responsibility for their authorization. LANline, or other relevant authorities may determine inappropriate usage of LANline’s Services and access to the Services may be revoked at LANline’s discretion.
12. Any access to other networks connected to LANline services may require approval of the respective network authorities and use will be subject to any acceptable usage policies such networks establish.
13. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions will remain in full force and effect.
14. These Terms and Conditions supersede all previous representations, understandings, or agreements and shall prevail notwithstanding any variance with terms and conditions of any order submitted. Use of LANline services constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions may be modified by LANline at any time. Continued use of LANline services following such modifications constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, as modified.

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
We believe that how you use our system and the Internet is your affair. We assume that you will be able to use mail freely. We expect to be available to you (barring disruptions beyond our control) virtually 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We do, however, reserve the right to impose limits in the event of unusually heavy volume. In other words, we cannot allow one user’s over-zealousness to ruin the system’s performance for everyone else. We may, in rare instances, have to restrict your usage of our disk space or bandwidth if it threatens our systems security or stability. We reserve the right to bring the systems down occasionally for brief maintenance. We also reserve the right to prohibit activities that in our judgment have the potential to damage other customers or our service. So that your use and every other user’s use is as enjoyable as possible, we ask that you:
- not use your account for “junk” mailings to people who have not requested the mail.
- not use your account to send, copy, or forward chain letters. When money is involved, chain letters are against the law.
- not allow anyone else outside your immediate family to use your personal account.
- not attempt to gain unauthorized access to or tamper with any part of our network, attempt to gain unauthorized access to or tamper with any other network, or attempt to gain unauthorized access into other users’ account, either on our network or on other networks. You may not try to see or tamper with data on our systems that belong to other users or to the administrators. This includes, but is not limited to: mail, files, and programs.
- not harass other users through your account.
Acceptable usage is hereby defined as the normal activities associated with the usage of the Internet and in-house data network, including but not limited to usage of LANline’s systems and network facilities for accessing E-Mail, and system files.
This policy is subject to any and all laws and regulations set forth by the Federal, State or any other governmental authority.
Activities specifically prohibited by LANline in these terms of service include but are not limited to the following:
1. Flooding or abuse of other users
Flooding is a fairly common occurrence on the Internet, and one which is dealt with strictly at LANline. Flooding takes place in numerous ways, including but not limited to ICMP flooding, mail bombing (sending large amounts of e-mail repeatedly to a person for purposes of harassment), Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks, mass mailings to multiple addressees, as well as other, less common methods.
2. Attempts to compromise system and/or network security
Programs such as packet sniffers, password crack programs, and similar utilities found to be running from a customer’s account are prohibited. This also includes attempts to hack into non-LANline systems.
3. Sharing of accounts
Sharing of a customer account with another party is strictly prohibited.
4. E-mail Abuse
E-mail abuse typically comes in one of three forms, the transfer of a message to unsolicited individuals, the sending of harassing and/or threatening messages to other users, and the forging of e-mail addresses so as to make the e-mail appear to be from another user. If it is determined that your account has been hacked and is sending out spam, your account will be locked and the password changed without a warning. You will need to contact the LANline technical support team via phone at 914-397-0500 opt 1 to receive the new password.
NOTE: Termination is at the discretion of LANline.
5. Pyramid/Money-Making schemes
Such activities as the transfer of information or solicitation of persons via the Internet in an attempt to extort money or other valuables or the use of pyramid/chain letters are all prohibited.
6. Pirated Software
Pirated software is defined as the illegal exchange of software via the Internet for purposes of avoiding the purchase of said software by the individuals involved. This includes most commercial applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. Such activities are prohibited by Federal law and are thus not allowed in any form by the LANline. Such prohibition also includes the unauthorized copying of copyrighted material including, but not limited to, digitization and distribution of photographs from music, books, or other copyrighted sources and copyrighted software. The exportation of software or technical information in violation of U.S. export control laws is strictly prohibited.
Penalties for Abuse
1. All prohibited activities are subject to immediate termination and any and all criminal and civil penalties available under the law. The penalties imposed on a user for abuse will vary based on the level of the offense. Typically the user will receive a warning on the first offense. However, if the offense is severe enough, LANline reserves the right to cancel the user’s account immediately. It is vital for LANline to provide a quality service for all users, and LANline will not tolerate users who through their actions hinder us in that endeavor. It is also important for LANline to have a non- intrusive presence to the rest of the net, and thus prohibited activities which adversely affect users on other service providers and their associated networks. To this end, LANline reserves the right to modify and/or disable service at any such time abuse occurs.
2. All LANline users agree to indemnify and hold LANline, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, subsidiaries, and affiliates harmless from any and all claims and expenses related to the User’s violation of this Agreement, including any abusive or unlawful behavior on the part of the User or the User’s dependents, or the infringement of any intellectual property or privacy right of any person or entity.

Cancellation of Internet and phone circuits require 30 days notice before the cancellation takes effect. Internet circuits are paid for ahead of time and cannot be prorated.
Cancellation of email accounts and websites will take effect within 72 hours of receipt of your request. If you cancel near the end of your billing period, you may be inadvertently charged for the next month’s fee. In that event, contact billing at 914-397-0500 to have the charges reversed. No other refunds will be provided. LANline reserves the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred before your cancellation takes effect.
