Should users be discovered to be engaged in Prohibited Actions as outlined above, which create denial of access or impediment of service, and which adversely affect my ability to provide services, I reserve the right to temporarily suspend or have suspended user access to the GWDG Host Server and/or Database. This temporary suspension will remain in effect until the Prohibited Actions have ceased.
