3.4 Notwithstanding any term in the Agreement to the contrary, Samespace reserves the right to suspend the Services, or portion thereof, or reject or cancel the transmission of any information through the Samespace Service based upon (i) reasonable belief that the use of the Samespace Services is in violation of applicable Laws, (ii) Customer’s failure to pay amounts when due, or (iii) an imminent compromise to the security or integrity of the network.
