A. Congestion Management Practices: Congestion is an internet access service problem that can slow web browsing, downloading, and other activities of customers during certain peak usage periods. Our services are provided on a “best efforts” basis and if congestion becomes a problem, the Company may implement reasonable network management practices tailored to reduce or mitigate the effects of congestion on the network, taking into account the particular network architecture and technology of the Company.

If any party contacts the Company with a substantial allegation that an application being used by a customer is unlawful, the Company will investigate the matter (including consultation, as it deems appropriate, with attorneys, consultants, federal or state regulators, and/or federal, state or local law enforcement agencies), and will take appropriate actions to deal with the use of applications that are demonstrated to be unlawful. The Company blocks specific ports in relation to firewalls.

A customer that is subjected to a denial-of-service attack, or similar malicious, unlawful or unwanted activity, is urged to notify the Company as soon as possible. The Company will work with the customer, other service providers, federal and state regulators, and/or law enforcement to determine the source of such activity, and to take appropriate, and technically and economically reasonable efforts to address the matter.
The Company employs commercially appropriate security procedures to protect its network and its customer records from unauthorized access by third parties. The Company does not guarantee that it can protect customers from any and/or all security breaches.
