Barnes & Noble NOOK Color User Guide  15Appendix A: Page Numbering and File FormatsWhen you read a book or periodical on your NOOK Color, you’re reading the same words that appear in the paper edition of the book or periodical. In most books, the page number that shows in the upper right corner of your NOOK Color screen shows the page number that would appear if you were reading the printed version of the same book.Because printed pages can be larger than the screen of your NOOK Color, and because many printed books use type that is smaller than would be pleasant to read on an eReader, your NOOK Color may enlarge the type on a page and spread a physical page of text across two or more digital pages.Because digital pages might be smaller than the physical pages of a book, you might turn the page a few times on your NOOK Color and still see the same physical page number in the upper right hand corner. For example, you might find three screenfuls of  text in your book all labeled page 47.The relation between digital pages and physical pages can vary, because your NOOK Color gives you a great deal of freedom in choosing the size of fonts, the amount of spacing between lines, and other factors that aect how text flows onto a page. In most books, you’ll always know which physical page you’re on from the number in the upper right. So if you’re discussing a book in a book club, everyone can refer to page 295 and be talking about the same page, even if you’ve configured your NOOK Color to use small type and single-spacing and everyone else in the group is using large type and double-spacing.Page Numbering and File FormatsThere are several dierent formats for eBooks, and these dierent formats treat page numbers dierently. Barnes & Noble eBooks are published in the EPUB format, but you can load other types of documents, such as PDFs, onto your NOOK Color. Here’s a quick summary of what you need to know about file formats and page numbering:• eBooks and Periodicals in EPUB format EPUB is the standard format for books in the Barnes & Noble online store. The EPUB format numbers all pages in a book sequentially, based on some prior account of page numbering, such as the page numbering used in the print edition. If the print edition of the book had 525 pages, so will the eBook. But the pages are re-flowed in the eBook edition to make them easier to view on a screen. As a result, a page from the print edition might be larger or smaller than a page in the eBook.   In many cases, a page from the print edition will span two or more pages on an eReader, as described above. • Reflowable eBooks in PDF Format In reflowable eBooks formatted in PDF, page numbering is for the entire book and reflects some prior account of page numbering, before formatting for the eBook text size. The behavior is the same as for eBooks in EPUB format, which is described above.• Non-reflowable eBooks in PDF format Page numbering is for the entire book, and reflects the number of scanned pages. Page numbers also might be on the scanned pages, but there is no necessary relationship. Page 6 in the eBook might have the scanned page number iv, and page 30 in the eBook might have the scanned page number 5.

26  Barnes & Noble NOOK Color User GuideAppendix H: AT&T Terms of Service & Acceptable Use PolicyThese Terms of  Service & Acceptable Use Policy (the “Terms”) govern your use of AT&T Internet Services’ AT&T Wi-Fi service (“Service”) and the AT&T Internet Services network (“Network”). If you connect to the AT&T Wi-Fi service via one of AT&T’s roaming partners, your use of the Service will also be governed by that provider’s Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy, which will be available on the first screen that you see when you access the Wi-Fi service. Before using the Service, read the following Terms. Your use of  the Service represents your agreement to these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, do not use the Service.Terms of  ServiceDescription of the ServiceThe Service is provided by AT&T Internet Services (“AT&T”). The Service provides you with wireless access to the Internet via certain AT&T high-speed Internet access points (“Locations”) and, depending on your Service plan, cer-tain roaming partner locations. AT&T oers two types of plans: (1) subscription plans for AT&T High Speed Inter-net Customers (“Subscription”); and (2) membership plans for those who do not have AT&T High Speed Internet (“Membership”) (Membership plans include special oers such as the Starbucks Loyalty Membership and Starbucks Partner Membership program). Membership customers are also subject to the terms of conditions of the applicable End User Membership Agreement.AT&T may, but is not obligated to, extend its Locations through roaming agreements with other Internet Service Providers. If AT&T does extend its Locations and you access the Service of a roaming partner, you will be responsible for any applicable roaming charges if you do not subscribe to a roaming Service plan from AT&T.Charges/Billing/PaymentYou agree to pay all charges and fees specified when your ordered the Service, including any monthly recurring or nonrecurring charges, taxes, fees, surcharges or other assessments applicable to the Service. All AT&T charges for the Service are billed in advance. Membership customers are billed according to the terms and conditions of the Mem-bership Agreement. Subscription customers’ charges will appear monthly on the AT&T portion of your AT&T local telephone bill. The Service is provided on a month-to-month basis and the monthly charges are subject to change. Payment for the Service is due on the date specified on the AT&T local telephone bill. If any portion of  payment is re-ceived after the payment due date, a monthly late charge may apply. The monthly late charge will be administered ac-cording to standard AT&T billing procedures and will not exceed the highest amount allowed by law. The late charge will be applied to the entire outstanding balance for each month or portion thereof for which the balance remains unpaid. In the event you fail to pay charges, AT&T may suspend or terminate your Service and may assign unpaid late balances to a collection agency for appropriate action . In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse AT&T for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses. You also agree to pay all current charges for the Service as well as taxes and fees assessed against you or AT&T on the charges and all late payment, interest or other fees as stated on your bill. You will also be charged a fee for any check returned to AT&T relating to the Service. AT&T may modify its billing practices or late payment charges by providing you with prior written notice of the modification.Service Suspension/Termination/CancellationAT&T respects freedom of expression and believes it is a foundation of  our free society to express diering points of view. AT&T will not terminate, disconnect or suspend service because of the views you or we express on public policy matters, political issues or political campaigns. However, AT&T may immediately terminate or suspend all or a portion of your Service, without notice, for conduct that AT&T believes (a) violates the Acceptable Use Policy, set forth below; or (b) constitutes a violation of any law, regulation or tari (including, without limitation, copyright and intellectual property laws) or a violation of  these Terms, or any applicable policies or guidelines. Your Service may be suspended or terminated if your payment is past due and such condition continues un-remedied for thirty (30) days. Termination or suspension by AT&T of Service also constitutes termination or suspension (as applicable) of
Barnes & Noble NOOK Color User Guide  27your license to use any Software. AT&T may also terminate or suspend your Service if you provide false or inaccurate information that is required for the provision of Service or is necessary to allow AT&T to bill you for Service. Mem-bership customers: customer cancellation of Services is governed by the terms and conditions of your Membership Agreement. Subscription customers: you may cancel your subscription to the Service at any time by contacting AT&T. If canceled after the first month, subscription charges will be prorated to the date the Service is cancelled. If you dis-connect your DSL or Dial Internet access services, your subscription to the Service will also automatically cancel.Modifications to the Service / Updates to the TermsAT&T reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, at any time and from time to time, the Service (or any function or feature of the Service or any part thereof, including but not limited to rates and charges) with or without notice.

You further understand and agree that AT&T has no control over third party networks you may access in the course of your use of the Service, and therefore, delays and disruptions of other network transmissions are beyond the control of AT&T. AT&T will not be liable for any failure of performance, if such failure is due to any cause beyond AT&T’s reasonable control, including acts of God, fire, explosion, vandalism, nuclear disaster, terrorism, cable cut, storm or other similar occur-rence, any law, order or regulation by any government, civil, or military authority, national emergencies, insurrections, riots, wars, labor diculties, supplier failures, shortages, breaches, or delays, or delays caused by you or your equip-ment.Registration/Customer Information/Password SecurityAll information that you provide to AT&T must be accurate, including your name, email address, physical address, credit or charge card numbers and expiration dates and any Service payment information (“Registration Data”).

These activities may disrupt or degrade AT&T IP Services, pose a threat to AT&T’s assets, expose AT&T (or other providers of IP Ser-vices) to claims of civil or criminal liability or other legal sanctions. Moreover, because of various conventions used in the industry (including blocking, filtering and blacklisting) these activities may impair AT&T’s ability to interconnect with other providers of IP Service. These activities may relate to the content stored or transmitted by Customers or its Users or to the nature of the transmissions themselves such as sending large numbers of unsolicited messages (Spam).
Barnes & Noble NOOK Color User Guide  31Customers are responsible for avoiding the prohibited activities and strictly following the AUP terms set forth herein.AUP CoverageThe AT&T Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) applies to the services that provide (or include) access to the Internet, services provided over the Internet, and Hosting services (collectively “IP Services”). Customer is responsible for the actions of others who may be using the IP Service(s) under Customer’s account. It is Customer’s obligation to take whatever measures are necessary to protect access to Customer’s account (e.g., to keep the access password se-cure). If a Customer or its User(s) violate the AUP, AT&T may, depending on the nature and severity of the violation, suspend or terminate service, as specified below.Customer may have access through the AT&T network(s) and Service(s) to search engines, subscription web services, chat areas, bulletin boards, web pages, USENET, or other services that promulgate rules, guidelines or agreements to govern their use. Failure to adhere to any such rules, guidelines, or agreements shall be a violation of this AUP.AT&T is aware that some of its Customers are, themselves, providers of Internet based services, and that informa-tion reaching AT&T network(s) or facilities from those Customers may have originated from the AT&T Customer or from another third-party. AT&T reserves the right to take action against AT&T Customer and directly against such Customers’ subscribers, even though the AT&T’s corrective action may aect other non-oending subscribers of the AT&T Customer.AUP Enforcement and NoticeCustomer’s failure to observe the guidelines set forth in this AUP may result in AT&T taking actions anywhere from a warning to a suspension of privileges or termination of your Service(s). AT&T reserves the right, but does not as-sume the obligation, to strictly enforce the AUP. When feasible, AT&T may provide Customer with notice of an AUP violation via e-mail or otherwise and demand that such violation is immediately corrected.However, AT&T reserves the right to act immediately and without notice to suspend or terminate IP Service(s) in response to a court order or other legal requirement that certain conduct should be stopped or when AT&T de-termines, in its sole discretion, that the conduct may: (1) expose AT&T to sanctions, prosecution, civil action or any other liability, (2) cause harm to or interfere with the integrity or normal operations of AT&T’s network(s) or facili-ties, (3) interfere with another person’s use of  AT&T’s IP Service(s) or the Internet, or (4) otherwise present a risk of harm to AT&T or AT&T Customers or other parties AT&T interconnects with.AT&T’s decisions with respect to interpretation of the AUP and appropriate remedial actions are final and deter-mined by AT&T in its sole discretion. AT&T may refer potential violations of law(s) to the proper authorities, may cooperate in the investigation of any suspected criminal or civil wrongdoing, and will cooperate with authorities when required to do so by law, subpoena, or when the public safety is at stake. AT&T assumes no obligation to inform you that your information has been disclosed, and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from providing such notice.AT&T does not, as an ordinary practice, proactively monitor the activities of those who use its IP Service(s) or exer-cise any editorial control over any material transmitted, hosted or posted using IP Services to ensure that its Cus-tomers comply with the AUP and/or the law, although it reserves the right to do so. If AT&T is alerted to violations or potential violations of this AUP, AT&T will take whatever measures it deems necessary and appropriate to stop or prevent such violations including the actions described in this AUP. For example, AT&T may in its sole discretion refuse to transmit, screen, or editing content prior to delivery of  the IP Service(s), block access to certain categories of numbers or certain sites as AT&T determines needed to enforce these policies.If your Service is suspended or terminated for any AUP violation, you must get written approval from the AT&T Abuse Team (outside of the normal ordering process) prior to reactivating or ordering new service. In any case, AT&T may, in its discretion, decline to reinstate your Service. If AT&T approves you for reinstatement or new service, set-up fees, reactivation fees or deposits may apply. If  AT&T discovers that you have renewed Service, or ordered new Service, following termination for an AUP violation without the prior written consent of the AT&T abuse team,
32  Barnes & Noble NOOK Color User Guideit may terminate your Service without further notice. In such case, you are responsible for any applicable early termi-nation charges.AT&T will not issue any refunds, credits or other forms of  compensation for the period when IP Service(s) have been suspended as a result of violation(s) or alleged violation(s) of this AUP.AT&T shall not be liable for any damages of any nature suered by any Customer, User, or third party resulting in whole or in part from AT&T’s exercise of its rights under this AUP.Prohibited ActionsAT&T respects freedom of expression and believes it is a foundation of  our free society to express diering points of view. AT&T will not terminate, disconnect or suspend service because of the views you or we express on public policy matters, political issues or political campaigns.
