Blackfoot's commitment is to provide our customers with consistently superior on-line experiences. To accomplish this, Blackfoot provides customers a number of services that make use of the Internet and other on-line services and third party software.
BY USING ANY OF THESE SERVICES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SPELLED OUT IN THIS DOCUMENT. ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONSTITUTES AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND BLACKFOOT.
ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
This document, the "Blackfoot Acceptable Use Policy", is an agreement that governs the use of our Internet and high speed DSL services. It is an agreement between you, as a subscriber to our service, and Blackfoot. You are responsible for all users and usage of the account, whether or not the use is authorized. This agreement is a series of guidelines that are designed to help Blackfoot meet the needs of our customers and assure the quality of service and safety of all on-line users. It is hoped that the guidelines encourage responsible use of Blackfoot services by our community of users that, along with good judgment, will continue Blackfoot's ability to provide superior customer experiences both to our customers and the Internet community as a whole.
Our policies target the following goals:
- Increasing the enjoyment and usage of the Internet,
- Maintaining the image and reputation of Blackfoot as a responsible provider, and
- Preserving the privacy and security of individual users.
In the event that Blackfoot believes or discovers that a service subscriber has violated this policy, Blackfoot reserves the right to terminate or suspend service(s) without notice. In the case where an account has been terminated or suspended, the reactivation of the old account or the acquiring of a new account will only be allowed by express approval of Blackfoot. The account may also be held responsible for any charges associated with any installation or activation charges, whether it is for a new account or an existing suspended or terminated account.
The provision of this Acceptable Use Policy does not in any way obligate Blackfoot to monitor or police accounts for violation. Blackfoot is not responsible for content and is acting only as a passive conduit. Blackfoot is also not liable to any party, either you or any other party, for any violations of this policy.
Because of the continual changes in the Internet environment, technology, legal requirements, and service offerings, Blackfoot reserves the right to modify the Acceptable Use Policies whenever needed without prior notification. Changes to the policies will be posted electronically on-line. It is your responsibility to be aware of and understand the policies and posted modifications. Any use of the service after the posting will constitute the acceptance by the subscriber of the policy modification and or changes.
Blackfoot's Rights and Responsibilities
In providing on-line services, Blackfoot has certain rights and responsibilities to you and to Federal and State legal authorities. Following is a list of some, although not all, of Blackfoot's rights and responsibilities.
In providing service to you, Blackfoot employees or representatives have the right and responsibility to examine operational systems, access logs or audit trails in order to resolve problems or service system errors. Blackfoot employees or representatives have the right and responsibility to monitor operational systems, access logs or audit trails for purposes of measuring system performance and for billing purposes.
In our responsibility to the Internet community and/or for the protection of Blackfoot's services and reputation, Blackfoot has the right to respond accordingly, including the monitoring of accounts.
Blackfoot has the obligation and responsibility to cooperate with appropriate legal authorities in investigating illegal activities. In instances where you or other users of Blackfoot's services or of the Internet have reported to law authorities the belief that your/their legal rights or privacy have been violated, Blackfoot will assist the appropriate law enforcement authorities to the extent possible. Blackfoot will not become involved in the mediation or resolution of any dispute between Blackfoot subscribers and/or Internet users.
Blackfoot will take necessary measures to provide a high level of security for the services offered. In offering the services, Blackfoot cannot provide any guarantee of secure service or secure servers including any data on the servers or any part of the services, even if the service or servers are described as "SECURE". Blackfoot will also not assume any liability for the security of the services, the servers or the data.
In providing services and systems used for communication purposes, Blackfoot will assist to the extent possible those subscribers who notify Blackfoot of any e-mail or postings that they view as illegal or unsolicited. Blackfoot does not have the responsibility or the authority to regulate or censor the content of any newsgroup or communications passing through its services or systems. Additionally, the content of any communications sent via Blackfoot systems does not reflect the endorsement or approval of Blackfoot.
If Blackfoot becomes aware of inappropriate use of its services or of illegal activities engaged in by either you or another user of your account, Blackfoot may respond accordingly, including the immediate termination of the account without notice if deemed appropriate.
Service speeds are subject to limitations inherent in Internet communications, including the transmissions speeds at any given time of day on the Internet and congestion at individual Internet sites. Service may be temporarily limited, interrupted, or curtailed by factors that are not under Blackfoot's control. We are not liable for any Service failures.
Use of Service
You agree not to resell the Service (whether for profit or otherwise) or to use your Service for any unlawful or abusive purpose or in such a way as to create damage or risk to our business, reputation, employees, facilities, third parties or to the public generally.
Privacy and Censorship
In using Blackfoot services, you will abide by the following policies concerning privacy and censorship:
- You have the responsibility to monitor your accounts for access to newsgroups and Web sites that may contain offensive material.
- You will notify Blackfoot of the continual receipt of e-mail that you view as illegal or that is unsolicited.
- You must not design or provide systems used for the collection of information about others without their explicit knowledge and consent. For Web sites that require registration before access or downloading of information, the intended use of the "registration" information should be provided.

- You will not remove or falsify the source or origin of any material in any files uploaded.
If you believe in good faith that Blackfoot should be notified of a potential online copyright infringement occurring on Blackfoot’s systems or network, please promptly submit to Blackfoot a copyright or trademark infringement notice. All such notices must contain the following:
- identification of the copyrighted work you claim has been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- identification of the material that you claim to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled by Blackfoot, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Blackfoot to locate the material;
- information reasonably sufficient to permit Blackfoot to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;
- a statement that you believe in good faith that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
- a statement under penalty of perjury that the notification is accurate and that you are either the owner of an exclusive right that has allegedly been infringed or are authorized to act on behalf of such owner; and
- your physical or electronic signature as the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed or of a person authorized to act on your behalf.
Upon receipt of such notification, Blackfoot will remove or disable access to the material that is claimed to be infringing.
If you receive notice from Blackfoot of a claim of infringement made in relation to material you have placed on Blackfoot’s systems or network and you believe in good faith that such claim has been wrongly made against you by the claiming party, you may submit counter-notice to bring about a private dispute between you and the party claiming copyright infringement.
Blackfoot will terminate service to those customers, subscribers and account holders that repeatedly violate federal copyright laws.
All such notices of copyright infringement and counter-notices must be sent to Blackfoot’s Designated Agent that handles copyright and trademark infringement claims:
Mr. Navan Carson

- You may not disclose any part of any of Blackfoot's or any other party's confidential information, including but not limited to any business records, files or business practices.
Your Privacy and Security
DSL offers an “always on” service which includes a virtual private circuit to your computer. Privacy and security cannot be guaranteed and we shall not be liable to you for any lack of privacy you experience while using your Service.
In using Blackfoot services, you will use Blackfoot services for lawful purposes only and will not engage in any illegal activity. Illegal activities include activities that violate federal or state regulations and laws or the legal rights of others. Illegal activities include, but are not limited to:
- The illegal transmission, illegal storage or illegal use of copyrighted material, trade secrets, confidential information or threatening material.
- Postings or e-mails containing threats of violence.
- Distributing or disseminating of illegal defamatory, infringing or obscene material or information.
- Using Blackfoot's services to threaten, harass, stalk, abuse or otherwise violate the legal rights of others.
In providing services to you, Blackfoot does not have the responsibility for the content or tone of any e-mail sent using Blackfoot's services. In using Blackfoot's services, you will abide by the following policies:
- You are prohibited from sending unsolicited bulk e-mail, or from the receiving of responses from unsolicited bulk e-mail in a Blackfoot e-mail address.
- You are prohibited from sending e-mail that is terroristic in nature, threatening and/or harassing.
- You will not intercept or redirect e-mail intended for others.
- You will not maliciously send files with either corrupted data or viruses.
- You will not use impersonation, or use a different name or address with the intent of misleading the receiver into believing that the sender is someone other than who they are.
- You are responsible for ensuring that any resource limitations in the use of e-mail or mailboxes are followed.
In providing access to newsgroup services, Blackfoot does not have the responsibility for the content or tone of any newsgroup, or the retrieval of any postings from any newsgroup. In using newsgroup services from Blackfoot's Services, you will abide by the following policies:
Internet Relay Chat
- You will not exceed general usage standards for the number of postings of the same or similar article to multiple newsgroups
- You will adhere to the newsgroup's definition of what can be posted. Most newsgroups describe the posting of commercial advertisements as off-topic postings.
- You will not use impersonation, or use a different name or address with the intent of misleading the receiver into believing that the sender is someone other than who they are.
In providing access to Chat services, which are multi-user, multi-channel chatting networks that allow Internet users to talk (via text) to each other in real time about subjects of mutual interests, Blackfoot does not have the responsibility for the content or the tone of any chat. In participating in any chat forum accessed from Blackfoot services, you will not violate any accepted policies on the chat servers and will not make use of chat bots, or any automated data that is not human generated.
In providing dial-up services for access to Blackfoot's services or to the Internet, Blackfoot provides equipment and resources that are used on a shared basis by many subscribers. Because the equipment and facilities are limited, it is not appropriate for any subscriber to use the services in a dedicated or automated constant use application. If the excessive use by an account is such that it potentially impacts Blackfoot's ability to provide Services or network resources that need to be protected, the account can be terminated immediately.
Blackfoot dial-up accounts may be subject to idle timeouts. An idle timeout is the disconnection of a session when a dial-up account is idle for a specified period of time and no interactive, human generated data appears to be received from the remote user's computer system. Automated data is not considered interactive or human generated and is also subject to idle timeout. Examples of automated data include data generated by an automatic re-dialer, script or other program that runs on the user's computer system for the purpose of avoiding inactivity disconnects.
In using dial-up services from Blackfoot, you will not resell any services or offer public information services over dial-up accounts (unlimited usage or otherwise), nor permit more than one log-on session to be active at one time on dial-up accounts.
In providing access to Blackfoot's services or to the Internet, Blackfoot provides resources, including but not limited to bandwidth and disk space, that are used on a shared basis by many subscribers. Because the resources are limited, it is not appropriate for any subscriber to exceed their usage of these resources. If the excessive use by an account is such that it potentially impacts Blackfoot's ability to provide services or that network resources need to be protected, the account can be terminated immediately.
To facilitate the use of shared network resources, Blackfoot has resource limits for the use of the e-mail services. Blackfoot shall not be liable to you or parties interacting with you for any damages resulting from the actions Blackfoot takes to enforce the following provisions:
1. Total mailbox storage is limited to fifteen megabytes per mailbox. When the mailbox reaches the fifteen megabytes of storage limit, mail will be returned to the sender with a message indicating that the receiver's mailbox is full.
2. The maximum size of an e-mail message is five megabytes, either for inbound or outbound messages. Messages that exceed five megabytes will not be delivered, and the user will receive a notification message informing them that the message was too large.
ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
You are solely responsible for creating, managing, editing, reviewing, deleting and otherwise controlling the content of messages or information in connection with services provided by Blackfoot. Blackfoot is acting only as a passive conduit. Blackfoot gives you complete discretion over the content to be accessed or distributed in connection with the Service. Blackfoot has no obligation, and undertakes no responsibility to determine whether any such content may give rise to liability to third parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if Blackfoot believes in its sole discretion that any use by you of service may create liability for Blackfoot, Blackfoot may take any actions, including but not limited to termination of service, that Blackfoot believes are prudent to minimize Blackfoot's potential liability.
If additional content screening would be of benefit to you, please contact our Customer Service department. Blackfoot offers Blackfoot Security Center for content screening for an additional fee. This service will assist you in screening on-line content. However, some Internet users continue attempts to circumvent the effectiveness of any filtering or screening systems and you remain solely responsible for managing the content of information received over the Service.

If attribution to Blackfoot is included, limited quotations from the content are hereby permitted. You may not sell, copy, use or display for redistribution to third parties or for commercial purposes any portion of the content without the prior written permission of Blackfoot.
No Implied Licenses
Nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel, or otherwise any license or right under any patent, trademark, copyright or proprietary rights of Blackfoot or of any third party.
(a) This Agreement begins on the date Service is activated to your current premise and continues until terminated in the manner provided herein. (b) If you select a plan with a fixed term longer than one month (such as an annual plan or a special promotional plan), the term of this Agreement shall continue for the number of months applicable to the term selected (the “Fixed Term”). If you select such a plan, you understand you have been provided a waiver of some or all installation charges in exchange for your agreement to subscribe for a Fixed Term. If you change physical location of the Services or otherwise attempt to terminate this Agreement prior to the end of the Fixed Term, you will breach this Agreement. In such event we will require you to pay a cancellation fee (which you agree may be deducted from your deposit).
You are responsible for all charges incurred by the use of the services, requested using either verbal or written means. The applicable term will be based on the verbal or written commitment made at the time of service request. The nonrecurring install charge will be waived for new customers with a 12 month commitment. If the install charge is waived a penalty will apply where service is discontinued prior to the end of the term. Request and use of service will be considered a binding commitment.
We may require a deposit in which you grant Blackfoot a security interest to secure your payment of all amounts when due. If not prohibited by law, deposits received by Blackfoot may be commingled with other of our funds, and will not earn interest. The amount of your deposit may be increased by Blackfoot at any time upon reevaluation of your credit. You may either provide Blackfoot such increased deposit or terminate this Agreement, in which case any cancellation fee will be waived. You must promptly pay your bills even if you have given Blackfoot a deposit. If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, any deposit from you will be applied to pay any of your charges then or thereafter due. Any remaining deposit or other credit balance on your account will be returned without interest (as allowed by law) to you at your last-known address within ninety (90) days after termination. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, if the Postal Service is not able to deliver the funds to you and returns them to Blackfoot, title to such funds shall be conclusively deemed to remain ours, and you shall have no further right thereto.
Billing and Payment of Charges
You will pay all charges for Service under this Agreement. You will be charged for Service features on a monthly basis, with any charges for a partial month of feature usage to be determined on a prorated basis. Charges, including disputed amounts, must be paid by the date shown on the monthly invoice. You agree that (a) time is of the essence; (b) in the event of such failure, you shall pay Blackfoot interest at the rate of one percent (1.0%) per month (or any portion thereof), or the maximum rate allowable by law, whichever is less, on any amount not paid when due. If we accept late or partial payments or payments marked “Paid in Full” or similar notations, it will not waive any of our rights hereunder nor will it constitute an accord and satisfaction. We may charge you a returned check fee as required by law for any check returned for insufficient funds. Questions about or objections to any charges reflected on an invoice must be in writing and must be received by Blackfoot from you no later than the payment due date or any objection shall be waived. You are responsible for all charges incurred by the use of the login name assigned to you. If you lose your password you must contact Blackfoot promptly at the address or phone numbers below, and a representative will assign you a new password. Blackfoot will have no responsibility for any charges incurred on your account.
Furthermore, Blackfoot can not be responsible for any charges, which you may incur through your long-distance company, and/or, any expenses incurred for your equipment or software. Check any installation programs carefully to assure that the phone number to which you are connecting is a local number.
Any applicable sales, use, excise, public utility or other taxes, fees or charges imposed on Blackfoot as a result of providing the Service or your equipment to you will be added to your charges when imposed or required by law. If you are exempt from payment on any such taxes, you may provide Blackfoot with an original Tax Exempt Document. Tax exemption will only apply from the date we receive the Tax Exempt Document (you cannot receive credit for any taxes already paid by you).
We may discontinue Service and/or terminate this Agreement without prior notice to you if you do not pay any sum when due, breach any representations you made to Blackfoot in this Agreement, fail to perform any of your obligations set forth in this Agreement or in any other agreement between you and Blackfoot, use your Service in any abusive manner or in any way that damages or interferes with Blackfoot, or become the subject of any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or become insolvent. In any such case, you shall remain responsible for payment of all charges due to Blackfoot under this Agreement, which charges (including, without limitation, all unbilled installment amounts) will be immediately due and payable. In the event of your default, you will reimburse Blackfoot for our attorneys’ and expert witnesses’ fees, costs of investigation, collection and similar expenses incurred by Blackfoot in the enforcement of any right or privilege hereunder. If this Agreement is terminated because of your default, we may keep any charges or sums prepaid by you upon termination. If we agree to renew Service to you after discontinuing Service, you agree to pay any reactivation charges. Our remedies hereunder are not exclusive but are in addition to all other remedies provided by law.
Modifying Your Account
You may upon verbal or written notice to Blackfoot add or delete Service features. Unless you have selected a special promotional rate plan or Fixed Term Plan, you may, upon verbal or written notice to Blackfoot and payment of transfer fee (if any) assessed by Blackfoot, change to another rate plan beginning with the following billing cycle. Any Fixed Term will remain unchanged by any modification to your account. If we allow you to temporarily suspend your account, however, the Fixed Term may be extended by the length of the temporary suspension, at our option.
