The Portal contains a Communities link to bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, blogs, forums, wikis, communities, file cabinets and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with others (each a "Communication Service" and collectively "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and, when applicable, related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using the Communication Services, you will not:
Microsoft has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, Microsoft reserves the right to review materials posted to the Communication Services and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. Microsoft reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time, without notice, for any reason whatsoever.
Microsoft reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as Microsoft deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in Microsoft's sole discretion.
Always use caution when giving out any personally identifiable information about yourself or your children in any Communication Services. Microsoft does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Services and, therefore, Microsoft specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Services. Managers and hosts are not authorized Microsoft spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of Microsoft.
Materials uploaded to the Communication Services may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination; you are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.
To use the Portal, you must have a Microsoft Online Services ID - a multi-purpose authentication Web service that makes it easy for you to sign in to web sites or Microsoft Online Services.

Reasons for cancellation may include, but are not limited to, our ceasing to provide the Services in your region or your breach of these TOU, failure to sign in to the Microsoft Online Services ID network during a 90-day period, or failure to pay fees you owe us or our agents. If we cancel your Microsoft Online Services ID credentials, your right to use the Microsoft Online Services ID stops immediately. Cancellation of the credentials will not alter your obligation to pay all charges made to your billing account for use of any Services to which you subscribe.
