Civil Investigations
PayLessUsenet 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
PayLessUsenet cooperates fully with law enforcement agencies, yet there must still be a court order before PayLessUsenet surrenders customer information. The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution requires a court order to conduct a search and seizure. PayLessUsenet 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 PayLessUsenet is under a duty not to divulge the fact of the investigation to the customer
