BY ACCESSING, USING, OR REGISTERING FOR THE SERVICES, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS (the “Agreement”). If you do not agree, you may not use the Services.
Phollo.me, its parent and affiliates (“we” or “us”) make available the Services to you on the condition that you abide by this Agreement. The Services give users the ability to access and share their Profiles and other content. We may, in our sole discretion, change any aspect of the Services or discontinue any Service without notice. The Services are based in the United States. You may use them only if they comply with the laws of the country from which you are accessing our Services.
Please read this Agreement carefully before creating, accessing or using the Services. You understand and agree that this Agreement governs your relationship with us and has the same effect and consequence as an agreement in writing.
To use certain Services and features you will need to register with us and create a username. A username is a unique identifier selected or supplied by you or provided by us automatically and is used to identify you on our Services. To register a username and create an account, you must be at least 13 years of age. You must give us true and accurate information about yourself and keep that information up to date. We may refuse or reject a username in our discretion.
If you create a Profile on the Services, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and Profile, and you are fully responsible for all consequences and activities that occur under your account. You must not describe or assign keywords to your Profile in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and we may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause us liability. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security.
If you create a Profile, or otherwise transmit or post materials (e.g., text, graphics, applications, etc.) on the Services (any such material, “Content”), you understand and agree that you are entirely responsible for such Content that is provided by you or through your account.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF SHARING OR POSTING ANY PERSONAL OR OTHER INFORMATION ON OUR SERVICES.

We do not guarantee that our mobile Services can be accessed through all wireless devices or service plans or are available in all geographical locations.
If you elect to store authentication information, such as a username and password, where others may access it, we are not responsible for any loss of personal data or other consequences if someone other than you uses that information to access our services. If you lose a device, such as a laptop, desktop, or smartphone, or a device is stolen containing your username and password, it is up to you to take all the steps necessary to protect yourself.

By submitting Content on the Services or by linking to other Profiles on the Services for inclusion on your Profile, you grant us and our parent a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your Profile.

Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, we have the right (though not the obligation) to, in our sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates these terms or any policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of an account to any individual or entity for any reason, in our sole discretion. We will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
You may not impersonate another person or claim a name for your Profile that does not belong to you (i.e. “name squatting”). We are committed to ensure the rights of trademark owners and the right of individuals in the public sphere to claim their legal names and associated monikers on the Services. You understand and agree that you will forfeit a username and your account if the rightful owner protests your claim, or if such username is associated with a trademark or celebrity.
We can remove Content for any reason, but we have no obligation to do so. The Content provided on the Services, including Content posted by users, is for general information, discussion and entertainment purposes only. We make no representations or guarantees about any aspect of the content on the Services and do not endorse any opinions expressed by any users.

Copyright and trademark owners can report alleged violations by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Services and the Content provided on the Services are protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, international treaties, laws, and other proprietary rights, and also may have security components that protect digital information. You agree that you will not take any action to interfere with anyone’s rights in their content and you will not attempt to circumvent any mechanisms for preventing the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of Content. This Agreement does not transfer to you any of our or third party intellectual property. Nothing in this Agreement grants you a right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any of our or third party’s trademarks, service marks, logos and trade names.
We may modify this TOS from time to time. If you do not agree to the changes, stop using our Services before the changes take effect. Your use of a Service after the effective date of any changes means that you agree to the changes. We may also, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the Services. Such new features and/or services shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any supplemental terms that accompany the new features.
We may terminate your access to all or any part of the Services and terminate your account at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using the Services. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
