When you open your Foxstone account, you join two communities. First is the community formed by our network and our customers; the second community is the one made up of all networks and users connected to each other to form the Internet. Becoming a member of these communities gives you certain rights and privileges, but also imposes certain duties and responsibilities. Foxstone has established an Acceptable Use Policy in order to make these duties and responsibilities more clear. This document is intended to provide a general understanding of Foxstone's Acceptable Use Policy. The following factors guide the establishment and enforcement of Foxstone's usage policies:
Foxstone intends to provide its customers access to everything the Internet has to offer. While Foxstone is firmly committed to the principles of free speech, certain activities are damaging to the resources of both Foxstone and the Internet and cannot be permitted under the guise of free speech. The resources of Foxstone and the Internet are limited, and abuse of these resources by one user has a negative impact on the entire community.
We do not routinely monitor the activity of accounts except for measurements of system utilization and the preparation of billing records. However, in our efforts to promote good citizenship within the Internet community, we will respond appropriately if we become aware of inappropriate use of our service.
If a Foxstone account is used to violate the Acceptable Use Policy, we reserve the right to terminate your service without notice and you agree to indemnify Foxstone and its affiliates against any claims threatened or brought by third parties as a result of your violation of this Acceptable Use Policy and/or the content of your website. We prefer to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action. However, flagrant violations of the Acceptable Use Policy will result in immediate termination of service. Our failure to enforce this policy, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of our right to do so at any time.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact us at abuse@Foxstone.com.
Foxstone customers are prohibited from transmitting on or through any of Foxstone's services, any material that is, in Foxstone's sole discretion, unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, defamatory, libelous, or encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, state, federal or international law.
In general, you may NOT use your Foxstone account:
Foxstone's services may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution, or storage of any information, data or material in violation of United States or state regulation or law, or by the common law, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any other statute. Foxstone's reserves the right to remove such illegal material from its servers or to immediately terminate your services.
The customer is responsible for keeping his billing data with Foxstone up-to-date and accurate. Furnishing false data on any contract or application, including fraudulent use of credit card numbers, is grounds for immediate termination, and may subject the offender to civil or criminal liability.
Foxstone reserves sole discretion to determine whether any use of the service is a violation of this policy. Guidelines for using your account follows. This information is only a guideline, and is not intended to be all-inclusive.
Certain Foxstone accounts give you the ability to send and receive electronic mail. Misuse of electronic mail may result in termination of service. The following examples are non-exclusive and are provided for your guidance.
You are responsible for any misuse of your account, even if the inappropriate activity was committed by a friend, family member, guest or employee. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not gain access to your account. In addition, you may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.

Foxstone accounts operate on shared resources. Excessive use or abuse of these shared network resources by one customer may have a negative impact on all other customers. Misuse of network resources in a manner which impairs network performance is prohibited by this policy and may result in termination of your account.
Any activity on our network that is a violation of any state or federal law is a violation of this policy and will result in immediate termination of service. Prohibited activities include, but are not limited to:
Foxstone does not permit any site that contains: (i) images (including on banner ads) of nude models that appear to be under the age of 18 (in Foxstone's sole judgment), (ii) sexually explicit images (including on banner ads) of models that appear to be under the age of 18 (in Foxstone's sole judgment); or (iii) sites containing language promoting child pornography together with any sexually explicit or nude images. As required by federal law in the United States, Foxstone will forward all offenders of this policy to the appropriate federal agency.
Foxstone has a policy to respect and protect the privacy of its customers and their information that is stored with Foxstone. Foxstone will only access and disclose information as necessary to comply with applicable laws and government requests, to provide the Foxstone Services, to operate or maintain its systems or to protect itself or its customers.
