PTMC Internet Services intends to provide its customers access to everything the Internet has to offer.

The resources  of the PTMC Internet Services 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.

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.
