You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service.

You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.

GENERAL LEGAL TERMS

The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and SES and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which SES may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and SES in relation to the Services.  You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services, which SES provides, may change from time to time without prior notice to you.  You agree that SES may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Services.

You agree that if SES does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which SES has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of SES rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to SES.

When these Terms come to an end, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and SES have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time whilst the Terms have been in force) or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected by this cessation, and the Terms shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.

If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
