Extrafriends Acceptable Use Policy

1. Introduction

This Extrafriends Acceptable Use Policy is for the use of the Extrafriends Service. Your use of the Extrafriends Service means that you accept, and agree to be bound by the Extrafriends Acceptable Use Policy, which supplements the principles you agreed to in the Extrafriends Terms and Conditions of Use whether you are a registered Member or just a visitor to the Site.

Remember: Although we provide a venue where the Extrafriends Service may be accessed by Members, we do not approve or actively monitor and are not responsible for the behaviour or conduct of Members or the Content they post on the Site. This Acceptable Use Policy is designed to make the Extrafriends Service is safe and can be enjoyed by everyone. We are reliant on our Members to point out anything that doesn’t conform to this Acceptable Use Policy.

When we refer to “Content” in this Acceptable Use Policy, we are referring to any information, pictures, images, sounds, videos, graphics, software, files, or any item whatsoever that you post on the Site or otherwise make available or accessible to other Members or users of the Site and Extrafriends Service.

• Don’t post or share any Content that infringes, or might be considered to infringe, anyone’s copyright, trade mark or other intellectual property rights (for example, do not post any music files of your favourite song or video clips of a TV show) – it’s easy to take material that belongs to others, but that doesn’t make it right.
