Monitoring and Enforcement While PLTW has the right to monitor activity and content associated with the Service, it is not obligated to do so. And since it does not, and may not have the ability to, control or actively monitor content, PLTW does not guarantee its accuracy, integrity, or quality. PLTW may investigate complaints that come to its attention regarding the Site and may take any action that it believes is appropriate, including, but not limited to, issuing warnings, removing the content, or terminating accounts and/or subscriptions. However, because situations and interpretations vary, PLTW also reserves the right not to take any action. Any opinions, advice, statements, information, content or other material posted by any third party do not reflect the opinions or positions or PLTW. If at any time PLTW chooses, in its sole discretion, to review the site and postings for content, it nonetheless assumes no responsibility for the content, no obligation to modify any inappropriate content, and no responsibility for the conduct of the user submitting any such content. PLTW reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject, refuse to post or remove any posting, or to restrict, suspend, or terminate access to all or any part of the services at any time, for any or no reason, with or without prior notice, and without liability.
