KWOM reserves the right to remove or block the material in order to protect ourselves from legal action under the DMCA.

Internet services are provided on a best-effort basis. Outages or performance degradation can occur due to circumstances beyond our control, and we cannot be held responsible for consequential damages. Our liability is limited at most to a prorated refund.

Access to the Internet includes access to offensive material, spam, viruses, hackers, vice, get-rich-quick schemes, hoaxes and fraud. Even though we may offer services like spam and virus filtering, they are not foolproof. We just provide the connection to the Internet, you are responsible for how you use that connection. We cannot take responsibility if you are offended, cheated, infected or hacked by third parties on the Internet.
