Cooperation with Investigations and Legal Proceedings
If we are legally required to permit any relevant authority to inspect your content or traffic, you agree we can do so; provided however that, where possible without breaching any legal or regulatory requirement, we give you reasonable prior notice of such requirement. We may, without notice to you, report to the appropriate authorities any conduct by you that we believe violates applicable law, and provide any information we have about you, or your users or your traffic and cooperate in response to a formal request from a law enforcement or regulatory agency investigating any such activity, or in response to a formal request in a civil action that on its face meets the requirements for such a request.
Changes to the AUP
We may from time to time amend this AUP to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions on your use of our Services by publishing a revised version of this AUP, or in the event of a material adverse change to the AUP, by providing you thirty (30) days written notice. The revised AUP will become effective as to you on the first to occur of: (i) your execution of a new or additional agreement for all or part of your use of Services that incorporates the revised AUP by reference, (ii) the first day of a renewal term for an Agreement that begins at least thirty (30) days after the time that the revised AUP has been posted, or (iii) thirty (30) days following our written notice to you of a material change to the AUP. If your compliance with the revised AUP would adversely affect your use of the Services, you may elect to terminate the Agreement by giving Eton written notice of your objection no later than thirty (30) days following the date that the revised AUP would otherwise have become effective as to you. We will not charge you an early termination fee for a termination on these grounds. If you elect to terminate, you may continue using the Services for up to an additional ninety (90) days and we will not enforce the revision as to you during this time, you will continue to be subject to the prior version. Notwithstanding the foregoing, even if you choose to terminate your Services under this Subsection, we may elect to waive that change as to you and keep your Agreement in place for the remainder of the term.
Consequences of Violation of AUP
If you breach this AUP we may suspend or terminate your Services in accordance with the Agreement. No credit will be available under the Eton service levels for interruptions of service resulting from any AUP violation.
