The Service Provider will send notification by e-mail to the contact e-mail address on file for the Subscriber in the event that an AUP violation which does not merit termination of Service is identified. Should the Subscriber fail to respond and take action to correct an AUP violation identified in a notification from the Service Provider, the Service provider shall suspend the Service until acknowledgment is received and apply a Service Suspension Fee in accordance with the AUP Fee Schedule.
The Subscriber agrees to pay all associated fees related to the suspension, termination, and reactivation of the Service.
In the event that the Service is suspended, regular Service fees shall continue to accrue over the duration of time for which the Service is suspended.
In the event that the Service is terminated as a result of unacceptable use, a termination fee will be applied in accordance with the AUP's Fee Schedule.
In the event that an account has been suspended three times for any AUP violation or terminated for any AUP violation, a Service Reinstatement Fee shall be applied in accordance with the AUP Fee Schedule and paid by the Subscriber before the Subscriber may acquire Service from the Service Provider.
If you believe you or your system was the subject of an attack originating from our network, contact us immediately. Our security response team will investigate all complaints received.
The Service Provider reserves the right to change the AUP at any time, without prior notice.
