Draft Commercial Policy
Chebucto Community Net Society
It is the policy of the Chebucto Community Net Society operating the
Chebucto Community Net to encourage the growth and success of local small
businesses by allowing use of Chebucto Community Net accounts for limited
advertising for those businesses and for related commercial purposes.
CCN promotes business use by allowing members to:
- Create and maintain web pages in file directories that
promote the particular account holder's local small business;
- Advertise their business in appropriate newsgroups in an appropriate
- Send commercial email in response to a request for such email;
- Maintain a mailing list related to their business, if each request for
subscription to that mailing list is documented and can be substantiated
upon request by CCN;
- Create and use a web site advertising their business as long as
the web site contains the phrase "Chebucto Community Net";
CCN has these restrictions on commercial use:
- All commercial use must be related to a business that operates in
or is registered in Nova Scotia.
- CCN may not be used for illegal commercial activity.
- CCN may not be used to advertise sexual material.
- Commercial use must be conducted in a manner that complies with the
spirit and purpose of the Chebucto Community Net Society. CCN reserves
the right to instruct users to modify, alter, or cease any activities
which it deems unacceptable.
- Users shall abide by CCN policies at all times and shall amend their
files as policies may change from time to time as directed by the Board of
Directors or the Policy on Information Committee.
This policy is intended to help local small business take advantage of
the opportunities the internet has to offer. We encourage you to take
advantage of it. We want to participate in the stimulation of the local
economy and allow our creative business and professional community to use
our facilities in harmony with those who use CCN for non business
purposes. In return we ask you to please view the CCN as a local volunteer
resource that exerts a considerable effort to enable small business and
professionals to make themselves known to the internet community at
large, and not to view us just as "cheap web space". We are not trying to
compete with commercial internet service providers.
