8. Assumed Violation of these Terms or Law; Injunctive, Equitable Relief, and Liquidated Damages.
Violation of these Terms, including unauthorized use of the Site, may be investigated and proper legal action may be taken, including, but not limited to, civil, criminal and injunctive remedy. You understand and agree that at HSTS's sole discretion, and without prior notice, HSTS may discontinue and block your access to the Site or to HSTS's other services, cancel your services or transactions obtained or orders made through the Site, refuse to honor your open and unconfirmed purchases made by your payment accounts or online accounts HSTS believes may be connected to you, cancel your orders or transactions when HSTS has reasons to do so, cancel your postings, delete any unauthorized Materials or exercise any other remedy necessary, if HSTS believes that your conduct or the conduct of any person with whom HSTS believes you act in concert, or the Materials you provide, or any resale of such services or products purchased through HSTS, violate or is inconsistent with these Terms or the law, or violates the rights of HSTS, its affiliates or another member of the Site, violating any constraints or terms on the Site, including without limitation, using automated means to process transactions or place orders or ordering large quantities that exceeds the stated limit shall be deemed to be a violation of these Terms. If we are unable to verify or validate any information or orders you provide during any registration, ordering, purchase, posting, sale, validation, delivery, payment or remittance process, or any other processes, or if we are unable to verify or validate your credit card or bank account information, your transaction may be cancelled, we may refuse to honor all open and unconfirmed transactions made on such credit card accounts and/or on any online accounts connected to such credit card accounts, and you may be blocked from using the Site.
You agree that monetary damages may not render a sufficient remedy to HSTS for violations of these Terms and you consent to injunctive or other equitable relief for such violations.
You agree that malignant use of the Site, as specified above, brings in damage and harm to HSTS in the form of, among other things, discredited goodwill, lost sales, and increased expenses in regard to responding to malignant use of the Site.

Accordingly you agree that liquidated damages are guaranteed for malignant use. Thus, you agree that if you, or others acting in concert with you, alone or collectively request more than one thousand pages of the Site in any 24 hour period, you, and those acting in concert with you, shall be jointly and severally liable for liquidated damages in the amount of twenty cents ($0.20) per page request each time that a page request is made after that first one thousand during that 24 hour period. You also agree that this will be the measure of damages for any malignant use that occurred before this provision of these Terms being in effect.

Apart from being a Site viewer or a registered member, we take certain actions to protect your information. Collection of information is, by and large, grouped into two categories: Personal Information, identifiable to a specific member (further defined below), and aggregate information, an unidentifiable and general demographic information. We may utilize or disclose Aggregate Information for any purpose (Aggregate Information section) User Contents
Whatever and whenever you disclose information about yourself online (email, chat rooms, forums, or similar web pages), such information may be collected or used by unknown people, which may result in unsolicited communications, like unwanted email messages. We do our best effort to limit your shared information and hold your privacy in high regard. We take no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who gather any information you may disclose on the Site. Personal Information
Certain features and services of the Site may require you to first fill-up a registration form and create a user name and password. During registration you are asked to provide certain Personal Information. We may utilize this information to contact you about the services on our Site in which you have expressed interest. Besides, Personal Information gathered for registration purposes, we may gather and store the following:
a. Your responses to the offerings and advertisements rendered on the Site;
Information regarding the Site' services or features that you use, and how often you use them;
c. commercial and transactional information (such as credit card or other preferred methods of payment, billing or shipping information, or a history of products purchased through the Site);
Your replies to or entries for surveys, and services, feedback, and requests for services, products, and other information;
e. Customer service information related to your membership, including any suggestions you submit to us for review;
Forum discussions, chats, and/or other correspondences to/from our Site;
Information from other firms, like demographic data; and
h. Other information elicited from your interaction with our Site, services, content and/or advertising, including (without limitation) computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to/from the sites, ad data, IP address and standard web log information.
To enhance the content of the Site and your experiences with our site(s) and services, we may use your information in our tailored promotions and advertisements.
Typically as viewers surf the Site, our computers automatically gather information on how certain features of the Site are used, where our viewers are contacting us from and how many people view the Site at any given time. We only use this information in the aggregate, that is, we elicit mainly some statistical insights from all gathered information which is referred to as “Aggregate Information”. Aggregate Information includes, without limitation, your computer's (i) Internet browser type (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer 6), (ii) IP address, (iii) resolution settings, (iv) platform type, and (v) initiating URLs of referring web pages. We also utilize Aggregate Information to (a) detect problems with our computers, (b) manage the Site, (c) share general demographic information with Service Hosts and our advertising partners, and (d) feed our advertising partners with information regarding which viewers saw and clicked on certain advertisements on the Site. Aggregate Information does not contain any personal information of any of the Site visitors.
12.3. Sharing Your Information with Service Hosts and Legal Requirements
We may be required to share your personal information with other companies, third parties, agent or affiliated parties, hereafter referred to as “Service Hosts”- by/through/within which our events, services, products, or offers are innovated, developed, extended, sold, or offered- as part of our contractual relationship with them. For example, whenever you use, purchase, or execute our services, according to contractual obligation, we may share your personal information with Service Hosts like a third party credit card processor to speed up completion of your transaction. The credit card processor may share the same information with your credit card issuer for the issuer's use for collecting data related to use of their cards, rewards programs or other purposes. We encourage you to read and know the privacy policies governing the use of your credit cards. We cannot offer you the option to opt-out from having your information passed to the Service Hosts.
We may reveal personal information to unrelated parties in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosure is required to identify, contact, or take legal action against a person or persons who may be causing injury to, or interference with, the rights or property of the Company (including our Site), computer members accessing our Site, or any third party. In addition, we may release information about individuals who access our Site to law enforcement agencies, judicial or government authorities, or to other individuals or entities in reaction to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes or procedures.
