You acknowledge and agree that FTO may terminate your access to FTO or to any of the Products and Services should you fail to comply with the Terms and Conditions. Any such termination shall be in FTO's sole discretion and may occur without prior notice, or any notice. FTO further reserves the right to terminate any user's access to FTO or to any of the Products and Services for any conduct that FTO, in its sole discretion, believes is or may be directly or indirectly harmful to other users, to FTO or its subsidiaries, affiliates, or business contractors, or to other third parties, or for any conduct that violates any local, or foreign laws or regulations.
