We shall not be liable to you nor to any third-party for any termination of your account or access to our Network.
Interception of Emails
We may intercept some emails addressed to members of the Smart Global Network and sent via our intranet system. The reasons we may do this are related to the security of Smart Connections Inc., our candidates and our employees; for prevention and detection of crime; or to identify correct recipients. In this case we may reject, delay or remove content from emails which have a nature, content or attachments which may disrupt our systems or because they may pose security issues such as viruses. We may also filter out emails which contain content that violates the terms and conditions of this agreement such as offensive content, unwanted or spam emails. In certain circumstances this may unfortunately result in "innocent" emails being affected but we do try to reduce such occurrences.
National and International Use
You agree to comply with all applicable local, regional, national and international rules and policies regarding online conduct and acceptable content, as well as with all laws applicable to or regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the U.S. or the country in which you reside.
