Users are solely responsible for all files contained in their own directory, and can be held legally liable for the contents of their Web site.

III. Freeservers.com may terminate user accounts at any time, without notice, for conduct that violates these guidelines or for any other reason. Freeservers may terminate user accounts and delete any and all user information for conduct that Freeservers.com believes is harmful to the business of Freeservers.com or to any of its users or partners.
