In most cases, violations will merely be edited or deleted. In more extreme situations, access to R3Owners.Net may be modified or completely blocked.
Repeat violators, or illegal actions, will be reported to your service provider or Network Administrator. Which may lead to the notification of the Law Enforcement Organization that would support your physical location. This action may lead to further criminal prosecution and/or suit for damages by other organizations.
We understand that everyone makes mistakes, and we never turn anyone away or disallow access for merely making mistakes. However, for those who choose to not abide by the R3Owners.Net Acceptable Use Policy and agree to its terms, we will disallow your access and ask that you do not return. It cannot be emphasized enough, abide by these simple guidelines - or do not use R3Owners.Net.
