If you send bulk e-mail, you must maintain complete and accurate records of all e-mail subscription requests (verified opt-ins), specifically including the e-mail and associated headers sent by every subscriber, and immediately provide HorizonIQ with such records upon HorizonIQ’s request. If a site has roaming users who wish to use a common mail server, the mail server must be configured to require user identification and authorization.

You will not use the Services or Infrastructure, or assist anyone else, to violate the applicable acceptable use policies of other ISPs when data, content or other communications are carried across the networks of such ISPs.
Suspension and Termination. Your failure to comply with this AUP may result in HorizonIQ taking responsive action, including but not limited to, warnings to a suspension or termination of your use of the Services and Infrastructure. HorizonIQ reserves the right to act immediately and without prior notice to suspend or terminate affected Services and your access to the Services and Infrastructure in response to a court order or governmental notice that certain conduct must be stopped or in the event HorizonIQ determines, that your conduct or breach may: (a) expose HorizonIQ to sanctions, prosecution, civil action or other liability; (b) cause harm to or interfere with HorizonIQ’s Infrastructure or networks connected with the Infrastructure or Services; (c) interfere with another customer’s use of the Services or Infrastructure; (d) violate any applicable law, rule, regulation or court order; or (e) otherwise present an imminent risk of harm to HorizonIQ or its customers.

HorizonIQ may assign its rights and duties under these terms to any party at any time without further notice. Severability.
