2. Content and data
2.1 You acknowledge and agree that there is some content on the internet which may be offensive to you, or which may not be in compliance with all local laws, regulations and other rules. All content which you access through the services or website is accessed and used by you at your own risk and is your own responsibility. We will not be liable for any claims, losses, actions, damages, suits or proceedings arising out of or otherwise relating to your access to content.
2.2 We have the right (but not an obligation) to monitor content posted on our website electronically from time to time and to disclose, delete, remove or modify any content (whether posted by you or any other user) as necessary to:
(a) satisfy any law, regulation or other governmental request;
(b) operate our internet services properly; and
(c) to protect ourselves or our subscribers.
3. Internet Services Agreement
3.1 This Internet Use Policy is governed by, and forms part of, our Internet Services Agreement.
4. How Seaside manages internet traffic during peak periods
4.1 When internet use peaks, usually in the evening, Seaside's electronic switches give priority to traffic that is sensitive to minute delays. Voice-over-Internet calls (VoIP) and real-time online games get the highest priority entering and leaving our network, followed by web browsing, email, and audio or video streaming. File-sharing (also known as peer-to-peer or bit torrents) receives the lowest priority.
Our goal in this traffic management is to ensure optimal service for all users, so that all categories of users get fair access to available bandwidth. Seaside is not a content provider, and we never employ traffic management in such a way so as to give any one content provider priority over any other.
