    PanHistoria will send an e-mail to any member against whom a complaint has been received to warn them that certain behavior is not permitted on the PanHistoria Site.

    Subscriber Responsibility for Protection and Privacy

    1. User Account Protection
    PanHistoria members are responsible for the use of their own accounts. PanHistoria recommends that members use passwords to protect their accounts from any unauthorized access by others. Specifically, PanHistoria members that allow access by others, including family or household members, to their PanHistoria accounts are responsible for the actions of those individuals, including the invasion of privacy on the user's totally private information.

    2. Protection of Children
    PanHistoria is a family-friendly service, however, the Internet contains information that may be offensive to certain PanHistoria users, particularly to children or to the Parents of those children. In addition, there may individuals seeking to obtain access to children for various unauthorized purposes. PanHistoria cannot prevent inappropriate contacts between other Internet users and children. We feel that parents are ultimately responsible for the behavior and well-being of their children, and the use of PanHistoria by their children. Parents should make every effort in order to password protect their own account as well as monitor the use of their children's' accounts to prevent the inadvertent identification of that child to others or access of inappropriate Materials by the child.

    3. Information provided to other Internet Sites
    PanHistoria provides its subscribers with access to a vast array of information and, thusly, information providers on the Internet. Every content provider manages its information differently and, as a result, PanHistoria cannot control and/or monitor the information that is either sent or received via the Internet. Subscribers should attempt to understand the privacy policies of the web sites to which they choose to provide information and use their own discretion and common sense. It is up to each member to be careful when visiting the web sites of other providers on the Internet. This is to ensure that their privacy is not being in any way compromised.

    4. Disclosures Relating to Abusive Use.
    Users that violate the Charter may be subject to investigation by PanHistoria, warnings, suspension or termination of their service and even civil or criminal liability through law enforcement.
