Creating an Account. If you create an account on our Service, you may only create and hold one (1) account that you are solely responsible for managing. You agree to provide us with accurate, current and complete information about your account and to maintain the information provided to us by updating it from time to time. We may refuse to grant you an account with a name that impersonates someone else, if it may be illegal, vulgar or offensive, or if it may be protected by trademark or other proprietary rights, as determined by Selfie in our sole and absolute discretion. After opening a Selfie account, you accept all responsibility for activity that occurs under your account, so please make sure to keep your username and password secure and do not share your password with others.
Your account is non-transferrable and may not be sold, combined and/or otherwise shared with any other person. If you violate any of these limitations we may terminate your account without notice and liability. If you commit fraud or falsify information in connection with your use of the Service or in connection with your account with Selfie, your account will be terminated immediately and we reserve the right to hold you liable for any and all damages that we suffer, to pursue legal action through relevant local and national law enforcement authorities and to notify your ‘Internet Service Provider’ of any fraudulent activity we associate with you and your use of the Service. If we terminate your account, you may not subscribe under a new account unless we formally invite you.
Use of Services and Availability. Use of the Service is at your own risk, including without limitation the risk that you might be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent, inaccurate, and/or objectionable. The Service may be subject to interruptions, loss of data, deletion of data and conditions that prevent the proper operation of the Service resulting from conditions and/or events outside the reasonable control of Selfie and for which, you acknowledge and agree, Selfie will bear no responsibility. The Service may be modified, updated, suspended or discontinued at any time without notice or liability. Consequently, Selfie encourages you to maintain your own backup of Your Content (as defined below). Although it’s our intention for the Service to be available as much as possible, we are not a backup service and you agree not to rely on the Service for purposes of backup and/or storage of Your Content.
Communications from Selfie and others. By creating an account, you agree to receive certain communications in connection with the Service. For example, you might receive comments, friend requests and/or photos from other users. Selfie’s Service also provides social online chat platforms, which may allow you to participate in public and private chat rooms and to utilize messaging features to communicate with other users of the Service. You may use the Service to send message to other users and acknowledge that certain users may block you from sending them messages.
