N8ARA.ORG is a non-commercial not-for-profit domain.  As such, you will only see original content herein or content that is free or permission has been granted for the use of the content for its intended purpose.  Do not copy any content from this site or otherwise redistribute content without proper authorization.  Use of N8ARA.ORG, and all parts thereof, confirms agreement with any and all notices, disclaimers, or other terms which comprise the terms of resource.

N8ARA.ORG has adopted these Acceptable Use Policies. They are intended to provide a guide to N8ARA.ORG's views on what constitutes inappropriate use of N8ARA.ORG's access to the Internet and to inform N8ARA.ORG's Users of what actions N8ARA.ORG may take, with or without notice, in the event that N8ARA.ORG becomes aware of inappropriate use of N8ARA.ORG's resource. They will be used to help N8ARA.ORG system administrators deal with complaints from users of N8ARA.ORG or other Internet-connected systems, and to determine when action must be taken. It is expected that all N8ARA.ORG Users will follow the policies set forth herein. Protection of N8ARA.ORG's technical resources and N8ARA.ORG's ability to continue to provide high quality resource to its users, compliance with existing laws and regulations, and the protection of N8ARA.ORG's reputation as a resource are all contributing factors to the policies outlined below.
