Secure Edge Networks, Inc. (“SecurEdge”) has formulated this Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") in order to encourage the responsible use of SecurEdge's networks, systems, services, web sites and products (collectively, the "SecurEdge Network and Services") by our customers and other users of the SecurEdge Network and Services (collectively, "Users"), and to enable us to provide Users with secure, reliable and productive services. By using the SecurEdge Network and Services, Users consent to be bound by the terms of this AUP. SecurEdge reserves the right to modify this AUP in its discretion at any time. Such modifications will be effective when posted. Any use of the SecurEdge Network and Services after such modification shall constitute acceptance of such modification.
Any User which SecurEdge determines has violated any element of this AUP may be subject to a suspension or termination of service. SecurEdge will suspend service for violation of the AUP on the most limited basis as SecurEdge determines is reasonably practical under the circumstances to address the underlying violation. SecurEdge will attempt to notify User prior to suspending service for violation of the AUP (which may be via email or any other notification); provided, however, SecurEdge may suspend service without notice if SecurEdge becomes aware of a violation of any applicable law or regulation or activity, including but not limited to a violation of the AUP, that exposes SecurEdge to criminal or civil liability or that exposes the SecurEdge network or SecurEdge customers' network or property to harm. Such harm to a network may include, but is not limited to, risk of having an IP address placed on blacklists. SecurEdge may take such further action as SecurEdge determines to be appropriate under the circumstances to eliminate or preclude repeat violations, and SecurEdge shall not be liable for any damages of any nature suffered by any Customer, User, or any third party resulting in whole or in part from SecurEdge's exercise of its rights under this AUP.
