The content of all discussion groups (a.k.a. “newsgroups”), including without limitation, the descriptions for discussion groups and the content within a specific article, is provided by and is the responsibility of the creator of the discussion group or the person posting an article. worldusenet.com has NO responsibility for such content and is merely a conduit of articles traveling across Usenet. Usenet in general is a public forum much like the world wide web is available to the public. worldusenet.com does not control, condone, or censor Usenet and its content in any way.
All articles on our servers are pushed to our servers via our upstream providers, including large international corporations. worldusenet.com usenet servers receives millions of articles per day, and it is impossible for us or any other corporation running a Usenet server to moderate newsgroups. Currently there are no state or federal laws that require any ISP to moderate Usenet newsgroups.
By its very nature, Usenet groups may carry very offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate material, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. We expect that you will use caution and common sense and exercise proper judgment when using Usenet, as well as use the service at your own risk.
Again we must emphasize that it is impossible for us or any other usenet service to police hundreds of thousands of articles that pass through our servers everyday. Any article that passes through our servers and its content is the SOLE RESPONSIBILITY of the person who posted the article or created the newsgroup.
worldusenet.com does not produce any content that passes through our servers.
worldusenet.com does not publish any content that passes through our servers. What we mean when we say “publish or distribute” is that we DO NOT extract pictures or programs from usenet for redistribution by various means, such as putting them on CD-ROM or making slide shows or putting them in zip files for download.
worldusenet.com does not condone nor support people posting copyrighted or illegal content to Usenet. If you discover an article that contains any copyrighted or illegal content please follow our DMCA copyright guidelines or contact us . We will then have the offending article removed IMMEDIATELY, and forward any and all relevant information to the appropriate federal law enforcement authorities.
Please note that the name of a newsgroup is not illegal in nature and does not necessarily imply inappropriate or illegal activity. However we encourage customers to exercise caution and discretion when viewing and posting to all Usenet newsgroups. All content, without limitation, is provided by and is the responsibility of the person posting the content. We expect all customers to abide by Usenet etiquette, copyright laws, and civil and criminal laws.

If your credit card or phone number was fraudulently used to gain access to this service, Email a copy of the Police Report to us at email@example.com. We will have CCBILL. refund the charge and have your credit card or phone number blocked from anyone ever using it with CCBILL. again. We will provide this information to the FBI and/or Interpol for substantiation of criminal fraud charges. We take fraud very seriously, and will press charges, both criminal and civil. Users who commit fraud by gaining access to our sites and then by what ever means obtains refunds, are committing fraud against a corporation in interstate commerce.
A Note from our billing company regarding refunds and fraud claims:
It should be noted that, with very few exceptions, every credit card refund results in that card number being entered into CCBILL’s negative database. This is our in-house record of past problem customers. After that, the card number is forever blocked from purchasing anything from any CCBILL’s client.
Anyone who thinks about requesting a refund by falsely claiming his card was used fraudulently had better be sure that he will never again want to use that card on thousands of web sites. Even if the charge arrived on your statement because someone else used your card (my son did what???), CCBILL has to assume that if it happened once it might happen again. If someone unknown to you is placing charges on your credit card, now would be a very good time to call your credit card issuer, cancel that card number and start over with a new one.
