You agree that your Internet use is solely at your own risk and is subject to all applicable local, state, national, International and foreign laws and regulations. Neither Aloha Broadband, nor its affiliates, shall be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused or alleged to have been caused by your use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available through the Internet, or your inability to access the Internet or any of its sites.

Aloha Broadband provides the Aloha Broadband service on a commercially reasonable basis and does not guarantee that members will be able to access the service at a time or location of their choosing.

Posting identical or nearly identical Usenet posts on a regular (daily, weekly) basis – with the exception of FAQ’s and other informational content posts – is similarly prohibited. Spam sent via other networks, but referencing email addresses or websites at Aloha Broadband is similarly prohibited.
