You may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, or distribute in any way any material from this site including code and software.

In the interest of maintaining network performance for all users, you are prohibited from sending or receiving unreasonably large email attachments, causing excessively high volume data transfers or bandwidth consumption, hosting of a web server, internet relay chat server or any other server, and conducting any non-traditional end user activities.
System and Network Security
Users may not attempt to circumvent user
authentication or security of any host, network, or account (also known as
"cracking"). This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not
intended for User, logging into a server or account User is not expressly
authorized to access, or probing the security of other networks. Users may not
attempt to interfere with service to any user, host, or network ("denial
of service attacks"). This includes, but is not limited to,
"flooding" of networks, deliberate attempts to overload a service,
and attempts to "crash" a host.
Users are prohibited from using any kind of program/script/command, or sending messages of any kind, designed to interfere with a user's terminal session, via any means, locally or by the Internet. Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. We will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. If we suspect violations of any of the above, we may:
- Immediately and without prior notice to you terminate your Services
- Institute legal action
- Cooperate with law enforcement authorities in bringing legal proceedings against violators.
Users understand there are certain security risks by utilizing wireless 802.11b,g or n networks. We are committed to maintaining a public network for ease of use and make no guarantees or representations regarding the security of our network. We recommend the use of personal firewall software and a VPN client to attach to private networks. As an option, we support routable IP addresses to all connection types to support a corporate VPN. Additional information about personal firewalls, VPN's, and other security precautions can be found on our FAQ website.
is prohibited from running any servers in conjunction with the Services,
including but not limited to, electronic mail, NAT, DHCP and DNS servers. In
the event any User attempts to utilize a server on the network, we may, at our
sole discretion, increase the fees associated with User’s use of the Services
or terminate the Services.
User is prohibited from running programs designed to defeat network inactivity time-outs and maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited.
User is prohibited from using any software or device that allows user account to stay logged on while user is not actively using the Services.
User is prohibited from uploading or distributing files that contain viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancel bots, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer or the property of another.
User is prohibited from hacking, breaking the security on any computer network or accessing an account that does not belong to the User. This includes, but is not limited to, unauthorized access to, or use of, data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a system or
network or to breach security or authentication measures without express authorization from us.
User is prohibited from establishing an Ad Hoc Network, i.e. creating network connections that allow other computers to access the Internet through the User’s computer using your authorized account.
User will not use the Services in any manner that interferes with any other customer’s use and enjoyment of the Services. Extreme and excessive use of available data transfer and bandwidth consumption by one individual constitutes abuse of the system and degrades performance for other users.
DATA TRANSFER ALLOWANCE (Also known as a Data Cap).
To provide a positive experience for all our users, CZee Networks (the provider) has established a fixed data transfer threshold for several monthly plans available at select locations. The provider also offers the option of choosing a plan with Unlimited Data Transfer. These unlimited plans will still be subject to the excessive use policy, which allows the provider to warn the offender. The provider reserves the right to cancel the offender’s service if in the opinion of the provider usage is excessive.
DATA TRANSFER ALLOWANCE PLANS are not available in all locations. Effective in October 2012, plans available in some locations will reflect a fixed data transfer allowance for each month which varies by plan with the option to buy additional data transfer capacity at a published rate. Only a very small percentage of the provider’s customers exceed this allowance, so the "Data Cap" plans will not affect the great majority of the provider’s customers. Current users with active plans with different usage terms will not be affected. However, once those plans expire, they will no longer be available for purchase at the locations where the Data Cap plans have been implemented.
Data usage (both download and upload) related to a user account and active plan will be tracked. Current usage summary will be displayed on user’s personal ACCOUNT INFORMATION pages in the CZee Networks Portal. Users can monitor usage online via their USAGE page.
When usage reaches 80% of the Data Transfer Allowance the provider will send an email alert to the email account used when the user purchased the plan. Users then have the option to purchase more data transfer capacity at rates listed in the Provider’s Portal.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Data Transfer capacity does not carry over from month to month with monthly billing plans and additional transfer capacity purchased will expire at the end of the 30 day period in which it was purchased. In all cases, Data Transfer capacity expires when your active plan expires. For example: If you have a basic 30 Day Plan (30 days only) and you have exceeded your allowance before you reach 30 days, you will need to purchase additional Data Transfer capacity in order to access the Internet. When your 30 day plan expires the unused data capacity you purchased does not carry over to new plans. If you have a Monthly Plan (with automatic monthly billing periods) and you exceed the monthly allowance before the next billing period, you will not be able to access the Internet until you purchase more Data Transfer capacity. Data capacity does NOT carry over to the next billing period and you will begin the next period with your plan’s regular monthly data transfer allowance.
Monitoring the Services
We are under no obligation to monitor the Services, but we may do so from time to time, and, if we do so, we may disclose information regarding User's identity or use of the Services at our sole discretion in order to satisfy any applicable laws, regulations, or governmental requests, or any law enforcement investigation, or in order to operate and deliver the Services in an effective manner, or to otherwise protect us and our users. Except for the foregoing, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits, and raw data logs are not used for any other purposes.
IP addresses are normally assigned on a dynamic basis, and there is little or no assurance that the User will be assigned the same (or even a similar) IP address between sessions.
User agrees to pay all charges to User's account, including recurring fees, applicable taxes and charges to recover taxes paid, in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. User agrees to provide us with accurate and complete billing information, including User's legal name, address, telephone number and credit card information. User agrees to report to us all changes to this information within thirty (30) days of any change, including any change in the expiration date of User's credit card. The recurring fee is due and payable in advance of the respective billing period for which the User has purchased Services, with the first payment due and payable on the activation date of the Services. User agrees to pay a fee for processing rejected credit cards. Activation and usage fees are non-refundable. The initial payment may include non-recurring installation charges including, but not limited to equipment and activation fees. Delinquent accounts are subject to immediate termination or suspension of Services at the sole discretion of us. If payment is not received by us within fifteen (15) days from the date payment is due, User's account is considered delinquent and User will be subject to a late payment fee of 1.5% per month of the outstanding balance on User's account or $15 dollars, whichever is greater (but in no event shall any charge levied on you exceed the maximum rate permitted by law). User is also responsible for all attorney and collection fees arising from our efforts to collect any unpaid balance.
12 MONTH ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION PLAN -
Not available in all locations
The Monthly Subscription Plan requires a 12 month annual commitment. Your commitment will end 12 months from time of purchase. Your credit card will automatically be billed each month during the subscription period. Under no circumstances can a customer terminate a subscription by canceling the credit card used for automatic billing, or by failing to update card information or card expiration date. CANCELLATION TERMS: Members of the military may cancel the 12 Month Subscription Plan without penalty in the case of involuntary transfer or involuntary temporary duty (TDY) for periods of 30 days or more. If a customer presents Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders or TDY orders prior to expiration of their annual agreement the provider will cancel the Plan and discontinue automatic monthly charges to the customer. For example, if you cancel in May you will not receive a June bill. To cancel your plan you must present a copy of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders or TDY orders prior to expiration of your annual agreement via fax to 860-628-3680 or mail to RESOLUTE Partners CZee Wi-Fi., 37 West Center St. Suite 301, Southington, CT. 06489. Upon receipt of your request and copy of your orders, automatic monthly charges will be discontinued effective the next billing period.
ALL PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Reconnect Fee If the Services are terminated due to non-payment and/or breach of the Terms and Conditions, User agrees to pay a reconnection fee if Services are reactivated.
