Pcsso will not review or screen Content on a regular basis for compliance with this Agreement or applicable law, and Pcsso shall have no obligation to do so, provided, however, that in addition to any other right Pcsso may have, Pcsso reserves the right to suspend Company’s access to and/or use of the Service to the extent that Pcsso determines, in good faith, that such suspension is necessary to comply with applicable law, the rights of any third party or to prevent significant harm to any end user or the Service.

The Initial Term and each Renewal Term are collectively referred to as the “Term” of this Agreement.
