One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they provide to others. When users obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that Satyam Hosting cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the users must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive.
