"Subscriber" means the individual, corporation, or legal entity that incurs usage charges for the Service and utilizes the Service for its own internal use. "User" means an individual within Subscriber's corporation or other legal entity who uses the Service and whose usage charges are incurred by Subscriber.
The Service may be used for browsing, sending, receiving and reading electronic mail, transferring files via the file transfer protocol or similar Internet protocol. At all times Subscriber shall be responsible for any use of the Service by its Users.
In connection with the use of the Service, Subscriber shall comply, and shall require its Users to comply, with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Reinstatement may occur upon receipt by ALLO of a counter notice delivered in accordance with the copyright infringement provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Repeat infringers' accounts will be terminated with no reinstatement.
d. Subscriber purchases this service for residential or business class use. Data consumption that is not characteristic of a typical user as determined by ALLO in its sole discretion may result in bandwidth limitation, customer purchasing dedicated bandwidth or service termination. Monthly data consumption beyond 250 Gigabytes per customer will be considered excessive use and a violation of this policy.
ALLO exercises no control over the content of the information passing through ALLO's network and accessed through the Service.

Some sites contain information that Subscriber or its Users may consider obscene or harmful. ALLO shall not be responsible in any manner and to any extent for sites or postings that might be considered obscene, offensive, harmful, or illegal. Subscriber is responsible for its own monitoring and viewing habits, and for those of its Users, including minors. ALLO makes no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, about the content of the information passing through its network or accessed by the Subscriber or its Users through the Service. Use of any information obtained through the Service is at the sole risk of Subscriber and its Users.

Subscriber shall be responsible for the proper installation, operation, and maintenance of any equipment not supplied by ALLO that is used by Subscriber or its Users in connection with the Service and Subscriber shall ensure that such equipment is technically and operationally compatible with the Service and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
If ALLO receives notice from a third party, or if ALLO reasonably believes that a Subscriber or any of its Users has violated any of the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, for failure to pay for the Service when due), then ALLO shall have the right, in its sole discretion, without prior notification to Subscriber or its Users, without limiting any other rights or remedies ALLO might have, and without incurring any obligation or liability to Subscriber or its Users, to temporarily discontinue furnishing Service to Subscriber or its Users, in whole or in part, or to terminate service to Subscriber.
