Violations

GlobeNet has absolute discretion in determining whether a Customer’s activities or use of GlobeNet services are in violation of this Policy. GlobeNet reserves the right to suspend or terminate the provision of a GlobeNet service or services for Customer’s breach of, or failure to comply with the Policy, which suspension or termination (i) may be immediate and (ii) may have a fixed or indefinite duration. Before taking such action, GlobeNet shall notify Customer in writing and afford Customer a reasonable opportunity to remedy the alleged failure to comply with the Policy, provided only that no cure or notice period shall be required where the failure to so comply represents, in GlobeNet’s reasonable opinion, an immediate and material threat to the integrity or security of the GlobeNet Network or to the services GlobeNet provides to others using its Network. In such circumstances, GlobeNet shall provide Customer with notice of the service suspension at the same time as such suspension, or as soon afterwards as is reasonably practical. GlobeNet agrees that any suspension of services pursuant to this paragraph will be as narrow in scope and duration as reasonably necessary for GlobeNet to protect its Network, rights, property, personnel and other customers.
