This includes:
Where any user resides outside of the Republic, permanently or temporarily, such user will be subject to the laws of the country in which s/he is currently resident and which apply.

The following sections outline activities that are considered an unacceptable use of Rapid Networks’s services/network/website and also detail the guidelines for acceptable use of certain facilities/services, as the case may be.

This includes, but is not limited to, third party content contained on or accessible through the Rapid Networks network websites and web pages or sites displayed as search results or contained within a directory of links on the Rapid Networks network. It remains your responsibility to review and evaluate any such content, and that any and all risk associated with the use of, or reliance on, such content rests with you.
Access to public Internet spaces, such as bulletin boards, Usenet groups, chat rooms and moderated forums is entirely voluntary and at your own risk.

Doing so remains the sole responsibility of the customer and Rapid Networks cannot be held liable for the Customer being placed on any bulk mailing lists as a result.
Where the customer has authorised a minor to use any of the Rapid Networks’s services or access its websites, you accept that as the parent/legal guardian of that minor, you are fully responsible for: the online conduct of such minor; controlling the minor’s access to and use of any services or websites; and the consequences of any misuse by the minor, including but not limited to transactions entered into by the minor using such access.
Rapid Networks cannot be held liable for any business dealings you have with any third parties on the Internet, including any vendors, or advertisers found on, or through, the Rapid Networks network. Further, Rapid Networks assumes no responsibility whatsoever for any charges you or any user of your account incurs when making purchases or other transactions in this manner. Further, the responsibility for ensuring compliance with all applicable customs and exchange control laws in connection with any such transactions shall be the customer’s.
Rapid Networks confirms that it has a procedure in place for the notice and take-down of illegal material. In compliance with section 77 of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (No. 25 of 2002) Rapid Networks’s designated agent for this process is the Internet Service Providers’ Association.
