When you go to the bank to rent out a security, they will inform you of their policy. They will also ensure you that if they want to terminate your contract at any point, they will first inform you of the reason they are terminating your contract for, they will offer you a respite and in certain cases some options for corrective actions, and they would always allow you to retrieve all of your personal effects that you have with their business. So if, for instance, I placed a photo album in my security deposit box, I will be able to retrieve it in case of termination so why is that not the case with Facebook?
