Terms of use

ViperNews hereby offers you access to Usenet newsgroups in accordance with the terms & conditions below. Please read carefully to understand your (and our) rights and obligations.


To get started, you'll need to open an account. Anything happening through that account is your responsibility until you tell us your password was compromised.

Account sharing

Accounts are personal. However you may grant one other person at a time access to your account. If we detect further account sharing we may block your account until we've resolved things with you.


Your account is only for your personal uses. You decide which information you want to upload or download. You are responsible for determining the legality of what you post and you indemnify us from any third-party claims asserting a post is in violation of any law or right.


If you do bad stuff (as determined in our discretion, e.g. based on complaints) we may disable upload capabilities or block your account as appropriate. We will not share your data with third parties except if required by law.

Our unlimited monthly accounts may only be used for personal purposes. If we detect abnormal account usage we may block your account until we've resolved things with you.


As required by law, we have implemented a notice/takedown procedure to act on complaints of copyright infringement. We will act swiftly on complaints received.


We will do our best to keep the service running at all times. We may take the service down for maintenance or improvements but of course we'll try to minimize downtime.


We'll offer support by email. We'll do our best to help you as fast as possible.


You'll need to pay in advance. If you do not pay your account will be blocked until you pay all amounts due.


We're not liable for problems with the service or third-party claims against you, except if caused by our intentional misconduct or gross negligence.

Money back guarantee

If within 7 days after signing up you are not entirely satisfied you can ask for your money back. You can request this by contacting support. We will refund your payment as soon as possible.


You pay in advance for the period you choose. At the end of this period your access to the service ends automatically unless you have chosen an automatically renewing subscription.


If you have chosen an automatically renewing subscription you can cancel this subscription by logging in to My ViperNews and pressing the "Cancel subscription" button.
