Any breach of this Acceptable Use Policy, and without affecting any other remedies available to us, may result in the temporary or permanent termination or suspension of a user’s account or access to the services without notice or liability, if XITE in its sole discretion determines that a user has engaged in acts not allowed by us or XITE as stated this policy.
