Customer's right to use the service is subject to any limits established by Proma.net or by Customer's credit card issuer.

If a Customer's account reaches the ceiling at any time, Customer agrees that Proma.net may immediately bill their credit card for all unpaid charges on account. Until further notice, the ceiling for each Customer shall be $100.
If Customer has reason to believe that Customer's account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of Customer's ID, password, or any credit, debit or charge card number stored on the Service), Customer must promptly change Customer's password and notify Proma.net of the problem (by notice given as described in Section 9 below) to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to Customer's account.
