Last Updated: October 1, 2012
This acceptable use policy (the “AUP”), together with the Terms of Service (http://www.gamefront.com/tos/), provide important information about your use of our GameFront website or any of the products or services offered on the site (collectively, the “GameFront Service”), including the GameFront Unlimited Free Storage service.
We reserve the right, in our discretion, to change or modify all or any part of this AUP at any time, effective immediately upon notice published on the GameFront Service. Your continued use of the GameFront Service constitutes your binding acceptance of these terms and conditions, including any changes or modifications. Please be sure to review this AUP periodically to ensure familiarity with the most current version. If at any time the terms and conditions of this AUP are no longer acceptable to you, you should immediately cease all use of the GameFront Service.
The GameFront Service is directed to teenagers and adults and is not directed to children under the age of 13. You must be 13 years of age or older to use the GameFront Service. We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and do not permit registration by and will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 13. This requirement will be posted wherever we collect data within the GameFront Service, such as during the registration process. By registering for the GameFront Service, you represent and warrant that you are 13 years of age or older. Additionally, you must provide true, accurate and complete registration information to become a member of the GameFront Service (“GameFront Member”).
As part of the registration process, you will be asked to select a username and password and you will be responsible for all activities occurring under your username and for keeping your password secure. We may refuse to grant you a username that impersonates someone else, is or may be protected by trademark or proprietary rights law, or is vulgar, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate, as determined by us in our sole discretion. Your account is your responsibility. Do not reveal your user name or password to other users. Your GameFront Member account could be disabled and cancelled if it appears to have been shared or compromised. Please note that you will need to remember your password because we do not maintain that information on your behalf. By using the GameFront Service, you represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate and you agree to the accuracy of such information. The profile that you compose upon registering for the Service must describe you, an individual person. Examples of inappropriate profiles include, but are not limited to, profiles that purport to represent an animal, place, inanimate object, fictional character, or real individual who is not you.
As of May 2006, there is no defined term or period for free usage of certain portions of the GameFront Service. If, at a later date such GameFront Service is no longer free and you choose not to subscribe prior to the end of the applicable free period, your access to the GameFront Service may be terminated and any Material (as defined in the Terms of Service http://www.gamefront.com/tos/) you have stored on the GameFront Service may be removed. (See “Authorization to Remove Content” section below.) Any individual features of the GameFront Service you may have used in connection with the GameFront Unlimited Free Storage service, which may be subject to separate software licenses, will also be terminated.
You agree to notify us promptly of any of any breaches of security, such as loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of your username and password.
