Privacy Policy

The rapid growth of the internet has brought with it a whole new set of issues regarding personal privacy. Power Usenet fully respects your privacy.

Customer Information

Power Usenet requires certain information at the time of signup and in the course of providing customer support. This information is necessary for us to provide quality service and support. This information is never released to others, unless we are ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction to do so. Power Usenet has never sold or rented customer lists or any other customer information, and Power Usenet will never do so.

Usage Information

Power Usenet monitors our servers to the extent necessary to ensure that high standards of maintenance are met. Power Usenet does not monitor or record your activities online.

Civil Investigations

Power Usenet will not release a customer's personal information or usage information to investigators, attorneys, or agencies unless we are directed to do so by a court of competent jurisdiction in the matter. If there is a hearing in court, the customer will be notified so they will have an opportunity to contest the surrender of personal information.

Criminal Investigations

Power Usenet cooperates fully with law enforcement agencies, yet there must still be a court order before Power Usenet surrenders customer information. The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution requires a court order to conduct a search and seizure. Power Usenet will, when requested by law enforcement entities, acknowledge the existence of personal customer information, and when requested, provide the technical language to include in the court order, "particularly describing ... the property to be seized." In a criminal investigation Power Usenet is under a duty not to divulge the fact of the investigation to the customer.

Power Usenet Privacy Policy

Power Usenet holds personal information about you in the strictest confidence and does not sell or rent that information. Power Usenet will not release or divulge any customer information unless ordered to do so by a court of law.
