Customers may not through action or inaction permit others to use the OutServ.net network for illegal or inappropriate actions, or to violate the terms of this AUP.

OutServ.net does not control, verify, warrant, approve, edit, censor, review, or take any responsibility for the information that Users may acquire, transmit or store through the Internet. Accordingly, OutServ.net is not responsible for injury that results from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.

If, however, OutServ.net becomes aware of any violation of law or this Acceptable Use Policy by or through a Customer, OutServ.net shall have the right, but not the obligation, without liability to Customer, to take any action to remedy such violation.

In addition, the Customer shall cooperate with OutServ.net in any corrective action that OutServ.net deems necessary to correct and prevent impermissible use of the OutServ.net network by any of the Customer's end users, including without limitation, providing OutServ.net with all information necessary to investigate the suspected violation..
