The audit provision it's totally illegal in many countries. You can't
do that. It's that simple. You should talk very seriously to your
lawyers because that clause will stop many people from buying your
service. You should be aware of that.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
                -- Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
