The Company employs commercially reasonable methods to remove content that violates its standards, but content may not always be acceptable to you. You further acknowledge and agree that the Company Service and the content may contain errors or omissions.

In order to have allegedly infringing content removed from the Company Service, or to have access to allegedly infringing content disabled, the copyright owner must provide notice to Company with the following information:
Once notice is given to Company, or in circumstances where the Company discovers the infringing material itself, Company will expeditiously remove, or disable access to, the material.

We do not tolerate content and conduct that shows vulgarity, sexual behavior, nudity, alcohol or drug references, racisms or sexism or bigotry, religious content, bullying, trolling, self abuse, family abuse, substance abuse, weapons, threats, violence, hacking or fraudulent behavior (or threats), intolerance, or any other behavior that inhibits any User’s ability to enjoy a safe and fun experience. If any User is found at fault for sharing this type of conduct within uploaded content, comments, chat, usernames, or any other form of user generated content, such User may be permanently removed from accessing the Company Service, and in extreme cases, reported to the applicable authorities.

Company also may suspend or terminate any User account for any Service because of user inactivity. For example, a Company account may be terminated or suspended if a user fails to sign-in to the Company Service for an extended period of time. What is considered “user inactivity” varies depending on the Company Service. If one of your accounts is suspended or terminated for inactivity, your right to use the Company Service immediately ceases.
