Customers are responsible for determining the content and information they choose to access when using a Prosum Service. Customers are responsible for any content stored, sent or distributed on or via the Prosum Network and systems including content posted on web pages, email, chat or discussion forums, bulletin boards, instant messaging, SMS and Usenet news.
Customers must not use Services to send or distribute any content which is prohibited, deemed obscene or offensive or otherwise unlawful under any applicable Australian law.
Failure to comply with these requirements may lead to immediate suspension or termination of all or part of a Service without notice.
Prosum is required by law to refer a Customer to the Australian Federal Police if Prosum has reason to believe a Prosum Service has been used to access child pornography.
Prosum may reasonably vary this Policy in line with notice provisions of an applicable Service agreement with Prosum. Continued use of Services after the change takes effect will constitute acceptance of the variation.
