If a fault occurs, NewNet advises you to contact the technical services helpline on 01329 226 723 in the first case. Alternatively, clients may send emails to email@example.com. Our target for fixing faults is no more than 24 hours and usually we will be able to resolve customer faults over the telephone.

NewNet suggest that you should save information locally as well as on our servers, ensuring that you have a copy of important data such as mail, web sites etc. in the event of a server fault.

Prices shown on the NewNet web site are quoted without VAT which will be added to invoices at the prevailing rate (17.5% at time of preparation).

NewNet normally submit invoices for ISP services at quarterly or annual intervals. Payments are due in advance of service being delivered and are normally taken by either direct debit or credit card payment. If we are unable to debit our charges from your account for any reason, you agree to pay them immediately on request.

Normally, planned maintenance will only take place between 00.01 and 03.00, however it may be necessary to carry out other work outside of these times. We may have to suspend service without prior notice, however this would only be for circumstances beyond our control such as essential maintenance or an act of government.
NewNet will always try to ensure that any suspension causes minimum inconvenience but we are unable to accept any responsibility for financial or consequential loss that you may suffer as a result.

NewNet recognises that you will want to be able to access as wide a range of Internet services as possible and does not wish to restrict that access. However, we do not knowingly permit the transmission of, or access to, material that the UK law enforcement authorities regard as unlawful.
NewNet wishes to advise customers that a very large quantity of data passes through its network each day and that it is impossible to monitor all traffic passing through the system. NewNet understands that the original content provider is responsible for content published on the Internet and for ensuring that that content is lawful. We do not, and cannot, limit access to materials unless advised by appropriate law enforcement agencies that material is unlawful.
NewNet does operate its own Acceptable Use Policy and will take action to limit access if customers actions are in contravention of the policy. The latest copy of the Acceptable Use Policy can be found on the web site at http://www.newnet.co.uk/company/terms-conditions/aup
In the UK, the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) monitors and coordinates action against unlawful materials. The IWF is supported by the Department of Trade and Industry, Home Office, ISPs and Police Authorities. If law enforcement agencies regard Internet content as unlawful, they advise the IWF who contact ISPs to arrange for action to block access to the materials.
If you feel that any site is in contravention of UK law should contact the IWF via its web site at http://www.Internetwatch.org.uk and give information about the location of the site.
NewNet recognise that your Internet access may sometimes be used by children. We do advise that you should make sure that their access is supervised at all times and that you may wish to consider installing an application that will allow you to restrict access from your computer to some sites and areas of the Internet (Net Nanny, Surf Patrol, CyberPatrol, Surf Control etc.)
The Internet Watch Foundation provides a guide to the safe use of the Internet together with advice for both children and parents. Information and guidance from the IWF can be found at their web site http://www.Internetwatch.org.uk
