Terms of Service
Access to the Internet Service is provided subject to the following
Terms and Conditions:
- The Internet Service provided to the Subscriber by Maineline.net
may only be used in accordance with all applicable laws, statutes,
regulations and rules and solely for lawful purposes. Transmission,
promulgation, theft, procurement of, communication, alteration,
publication or storage of any information, protected material/property,
data or material in violation of any National Law of any sovereign
nation, or of International Law, the United states Annotated Code,
or of any state or local law, statute, regulation or rule is strictly
prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, any material,
data, matter, software or software code, or intellectual property
protected by copyright, trademark, privacy, or other proprietary,
personal or property right, trade secret, or any other statute.
It is unlawful and a violation of this Agreement to communicate,
transmit, or promulgate in any manner, means or medium, any threatening,
harassing, or obscene material, matter, or communications of any
sort or to otherwise use the Internet Service for any illegal
or unlawful purpose.
- The subscriber is solely responsible for the knowledge of and
adherence to any and all laws, statutes, rules and regulations
pertaining to (i) the Subscriber's use of the Internet Service,
(ii) the use of any networks connected to the Internet Service,
and (iii) to the communications means by which the Subscriber
connects their modem, PC terminal or other equipment to the Internet
- The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Maineline.net,
its officers, shareholders, agents and employees and its other
subscribers from any and all claims, costs, expenses, judgments,
causes of actions, attorneys fees, litigation and court costs
resulting from the Subscriber's use of the Internet Service in
any manner, whether directly, indirectly or by any act of commission
- Payment of the Internet service fee is due on the first day
of the billing period of the selected service option. An Internet
Service account is in default if payment of the Internet Service
fee is not received within 15 days after payment is due. If the
Subscriber's payment is returned to Maineline.net unpaid, the
Subscriber is immediately in default and subject to a $25 fee
from Maineline.net. Accounts unpaid 30 days after payment is due
may have their service interrupted. Service interruption does
not relieve the Subscriber from the obligation to pay the Internet
Service fee. Only a written request to terminate the service relieves
the Subscriber of the Subscriber's obligation to pay the monthly
account charge. Accounts in default are subject to an interest
charge of 1.5% per month. If the Subscriber defaults, the Subscriber
is to pay Maineline.net its reasonable expenses, including attorney
and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing its rights under
these Terms and Conditions. An act of default accelerates payments
to be due immediately, as credit is no longer being extended.
- In the event Maineline.net is required to engage the service
of an attorney because of a breach by the Subscriber of any of
the terms herein contained, the Subscriber agrees to pay all of
Maineline.net's reasonable attorney's fees and court costs. Upon
breach of this Agreement, all of Subscriber's rights and privileges
shall immediately be terminated and upon such termination all
subscriber fees shall be forfeited as liquidated damages to Maineline.net.
In the event of litigation both parties agree that the Law of
Maine shall apply and both parties consent to the jurisdiction
of the state courts of Washington County, Maine. Both parties
expressly waive a jury trial.
- Either Maineline.net or the Subscriber, upon written notice
sent to the other party at the addresses contained in this agreement,
can cancel this agreement at any time.
- The Subscriber agrees that Maineline.net has the right to delete
all data, files, or other information that is stored in the Subscriber's
account, if the Subscriber's account with Maineline.net is terminated
for any reason, by either Maineline.net or the Subscriber.
- Maineline.net shall have the right to suspend service to the
Subscriber at any time, and for reasonable cause, without notice.
- Upon acceptance of the Subscriber's application for the Internet
service, the Subscriber will be provided with access to the Internet

effect during the pendency of this Agreement, except as provided
- The Subscriber's rights herein granted cannot be transferred,
shared, sold, or used by anyone other than the Subscriber and
his or her immediate household. No more than one login session
can be used at any time by the Subscriber on any Internet Service
account. Accounts that have been transferred to other parties,

to either i) immediate cancellation, or ii) double billing, at
the sole discretion of Maineline.net.
