If the misuse is unintentional, the suspension may be rescinded following discussion with EZ2 Network, Inc. Technical Support. If the misuse is intentional, the suspension may be rescinded at the discretion of the Operations Manager, and may require the payment of a service reconnection charge. Occasionally, unintentional misuse is misclassified as intentional misuse. Customers who believe their activity has been misclassified may appeal to the Operations Manager.
7.4 Violations of any of the EZ2 Network, Inc. conditions of use are unethical and may be criminal offenses. You are expected to report to EZ2 Network, Inc. any information you may have concerning instances in which the conditions of use have been or are being violated.

7.5 Users are permitted only ONE simultaneous dial-in. You may use only ONE of our modem lines at a time. If you dial-in a second time, it will count as a second dial-in and therefore you will accrue an additional charge to your account.

7.7 UNSOLICITED MASS EMAIL ("SPAMMING") IS NOT PERMITTED. EZ2 users sending _unsolicited_ email to multiple recipients (EZ2 or non-EZ2 addresses) WILL have any and all accounts with EZ2 IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.

b. Giving your password to someone else.
c. Harrassment of others in the Internet community by email, newsgroups,IRC, or any other medium using your EZ2 account.

f. Distribution or storage of illegal or pirated software with-from your EZ2 account.
g. Non-payment of user fees, including declined credit cards or returned checks.
7.9 Unlimited Personal Accounts: The dial-up accounts provided to all EZ2 Network, Inc. users are intended for low volume, non-commercial use. Unlimited access means that you may log on an unlimited number of times. However, it does not mean an unlimited amount of time. One example of inappropriate use is "Parking" on line: leaving your computer connected to the Internet with no activity. This unfairly and unnecessarily ties up modems, denying access to other users. Please be considerate to others by logging off when you are not actively using the Internet. This gives other users access to the Internet without busy signals and keeps the monthly cost low. The busiest times for the Internet are between the hours of 7 PM and 11 PM, Monday through Thursday. During this time period, we request that you pay close attention to your connectivity to allow for maximum connectivity to all users. EZ2 Network, Inc. users with exceptionally heavy usage will be asked to switch to a dedicated PPP level of service. You may use your account as much as you wish. However, if you consistently stay online for extensive periods of time, you will be asked to switch to a dedicated connection. Currently, users have a twenty-minute time-out. If you are inactive for twenty minutes, your connection will be dropped. Users are not allowed to circumvent this restriction through any electronic or mechanical methods. Electronic or mechanical methods include pinging the mail server and electronic or software auto dialer features to maintain active connections. Any account that utilizes more than 240 hours per month does not quality as a personal dial-up account and can result in the users account being disabled. Continued abuse or violations of the above conditions may result in a customers account being permanently disabled with no refund and all previous agreements rendered null and void.
7.10 Violation of any user policy will be handled in the following manner :
User's account access will be suspended. It is the user's responsibility to contact EZ2 for remedy. User's account will be reactivated at the discretion of EZ2 Management or System Administration staff. User is still responsible for account fees while account is suspended, as account suspension is NOT equivalent to cancellation.
