U.S. ROBOTICS SYSOP SUPPORT PROGRAM
This section describes the rules of the U.S. Robotics SYSOP Program.
U.S. Robotics reserves the right to modify or change these rules at any
The U.S. Robotics SYSOP Program permits QUALIFIED SYSOPs to purchase
current U.S. Robotics products at a reduced price. The purpose of this
program is to continue the close relationship established many years ago
between U.S. Robotics and the Sysop community. Participants should
recognize that our ability to continue the program is dependent upon the
strong position U.S. Robotics enjoys in the reseller channel, with the
distributors and dealers, VARs, etc. that continue to buy and resell our
products to home and business users around the world. It is our intent to
maintain the integrity of our channel relationships by closely scrutinizing
each SYSOP sale to ensure that we only sell products to qualified SYSOPs.
1. The SYSOP states that he/she is NOT in the business of
reselling computer products and/or related
peripherals, including modems. Qualified resellers
may take advantage of other programs offered by U.S.
Robotics by calling (800) 342-5877 and asking for the
dealer sales representative for your area.
2. The SYSOP has been operating the bulletin board system
for at least six (6) months and that this activity can
be verified by dialing into the bulletin board system.
Typically user logs, activity logs, and local message
bases are a good source for verifying activity.
3. The SYSOP understands that the number of modems that
may be obtained under this program is limited to the
number of working, VERIFIABLE data lines. Data lines
MUST be dedicated for modem use only and MUST be
available 24 hours a day for modem access. Modems
purchased under this program MUST be used on one of
the stated lines. Furthermore, the SYSOP understands
that the number of serial cards that may be obtained
is one for each 2 modems ordered under the SYSOP Program.
Participants in the Sysop Program beginning 1/1/92 may
purchase the Dual Async Card based on these rules as well.
4. The SYSOP agrees to post an appropriate logon notice,
visible to users of the bulletin board, which states
that said bulletin board uses and supports U.S.
Robotics brand products.
5. The SYSOP agrees that he/she intends to operate the
bulletin board, for which these products are purchased,
for at least six (6) months post purchase. The U.S.
Robotics logon must remain in effect for six (6)
months to allow verification that the bulletin board
is in place and that the U.S. Robotics promotional
message is being displayed.
6. The SYSOP agrees that, in order to avoid conflict with
the U.S. Robotics reseller channel, modems purchased
under this program cannot be re-sold without the
expressed written consent of U.S. Robotics.
Violation of this policy will result in the SYSOP's
being ineligible for future participation in the U.S.
Robotics SYSOP program. In addition, any warranties
on modems re-sold without U.S. Robotics authorization
will be null and void.
7. The SYSOP understands that verification of an order will
take from two (2) to five (5) weeks depending on the
number of orders being processed by the SYSOP Support
Department, and difficulty in verifying your bulletin
board. Shipment of product will take from two (2) to
six (6) weeks pending availability of the particular product
ordered. U.S. Robotics will ship product(s) to
QUALIFIED SYSOPs as soon as possible after:
A. The SYSOP completes the order form and
questionnaire found on the U.S. Robotics BBS via
the SYSOP command at the main menu. These must be
filled-out on-line as no mail-in orders will be accepted.
Prepaid orders will not be processed until payment has
been received by U.S. Robotics. After placing an order
on the board, a SYSOP wishing to prepay his/her order
should send a money order or cashier's check to:
U.S. Robotics SYSOP Support Program
8100 McCormick Blvd.
Skokie, IL 60076
It is imperative that the SYSOP name, voice phone
number and BBS phone number be indicated for identi-
fication purposes. A personal or company check is
acceptable, but shipping will be delayed for ten (10)
working days to ensure that the check clears our bank.
NO CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS WILL BE DEPOSITED BY U.S.
ROBOTICS UNTIL THE SYSOP's BBS HAS BEEN VERIFIED.
** Wire transfers MUST be pre-approved by the **
** U.S. Robotics Sysop Department. **
$ U.S. Robotics will now accept credit card orders. $
$ To pay via credit card please call the Sysop Dept $
$ and be prepared to provide the Sysop Receptionist all $
$ pertinent credit card information. Charges will not $
$ be applied to the account until the BBS has been $
$ verified by a SYSOP administrator. $
B. The SYSOP understands that once an order is
placed, it cannot be changed. If you are uncertain
as to the product you want to purchase, you may consult
the Information & Text Files file area of this bulletin
board for product information. Or, you may call the
U.S. Robotics Technical Support Department at (800) 982-5151
in the U.S. or (800) 553-3560 in Canada.
Outside the U.S and Canada, call (708) 982-5151.
C. Your board will be verified by a the U.S.
Robotics SYSOP Administrator. We MUST be able to connect
with your bulletin board to verify board status. In the
event that we are uncertain of your board status, you
will be notified either by U.S. Robotics via your board
or by mail or voice. We will advise you as best we can as
to what you need to provide in order to have your board
verified (appropriate logon, copy of phone bill, soft-
ware registration, etc.). In no case will we verify a
board until we are certain that it meets the require-
ments of the program.
D. U.S. Robotics will not accept phone-in orders.
E. U. S. Robotics reserves the right to modify,
change or cancel this program at any time.
F. If you have any questions regarding this program,
please call (800) 342-5877 for clarification. In Canada,
call (800) 553-3560. Outside the U.S. and Canada, call
*** THANK YOU ***
We realize that all Bulletin Boards are not the same and we are not always
able to ascertain their validity during our normal verification process. In
order not to exclude those Bulletin Boards from our program, we may request
additional information such as copies of telephone bills, proof of software
purchase and/or registration and network and association membership. This
information will only be requested by U.S. Robotics in rare cases and can
not be used solely as a means of qualification.
Before placing an order, please take steps to ensure the process goes as
easily as possible.
1. Create a login for U.S. Robotics
2. Ensure no questionnaires or voting is necessary
3. If your logon requires information other than password be
sure to include this information on the order.
4. Once this is established logon under the U.S. Robotics ID
and look for verifiable proof of 6 months activity. If
you can't find it, odds are we won't be able to either.
** US Robotics CAN NOT download special software to verify **
** your BBS. We support the basic communication platforms. **
U.S. Robotics is determined to provide a SYSOP Program which is fair and
equitable to everyone. Any requests made of SYSOPs in order to verify
Bulletin Boards are made in order to ensure that the program serves the
entire SYSOP community and protect the USR distribution channel as well.
We will make every effort to process each and every order in a professional
and courteous manner. Please help us to provide the type of service you
want and deserve by filling-out the order form as completely and accurately
as possible and responding to our requests for additional information in a
