We may suspend your access, cancel your subscription, or refuse to process a payment if we have reason to believe that there is a risk, such as a potential violation of any law or regulation, associated with you, your business, your subscription, or a payment. Examples of when we could do this are transactions where payment is made by a sanctioned person or country; or if we have reason to believe that there is a legal, regulatory risk or risk of loss to us or our customers or partners. You promise that you are not in a sanctioned country and that you are not on a sanctions list. We may also block users from a country if we are unable to receive payments from that country.
