The Service Provider prefers to advise customers of inappropriate behavior and any necessary corrective action.

While the Service Provider and its third party service provider may elect to monitor your use of the Service to confirm your adherence to this Acceptable Use Policy, it is ultimately the responsibility of the user of the Services to ensure that all use complies with this Acceptable Use Policy.
The Service Provider’s right to take action under this Acceptable Use Policy will not place an obligation on the Service Provider to monitor or exert any editorial control over your Web site.

A customer’s use of bandwidth is expected to compare to the normal bandwidth used by other customers. If, in the sole discretion of the Service Provider, a customer requires or is utilizing bandwidth that is excessive in comparison to other customers, the Service Provider may impose additional charges for this bandwidth usage, or if such charges cannot be agreed upon, may prevent such excessive use of the Services.

Any violation of network security may result in immediate termination of the agreement between the customer on whose behalf you are utilizing the Services and the Service Provider.
