Acceptable Use Policy

  1. All Customers of the Services and users of Neri services, software and Web Sites agree to and must comply with this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

Similarly we do not exercise editorial control or review over the content of any Web site, electronic mail transmission, newsgroup or other material created or accessible over or through the Services. However, we may remove, block, filter or restrict by any other means any materials that we determine, in our sole discretion, may be illegal, may subject Neri to liability or may violate this AUP. Neri may cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong. Violation of this AUP may result in the suspension or termination of either access to the Services and/or Neri account or other actions as detailed below.
