If you do not understand and accept the provisions, do not use the Services. Your use of the Services shall be deemed to constitute your acceptance of this Agreement and all of Bubby4j's rules and restrictions related to the Services, as they may change from time to time.
1. At any time we may deem content unacceptable and remove it from the site at our discretion.
2. All Bubby4j user profiles, character actions and content in or on the chat boxes and message boards are created by our users and not by Bubby4j. If you post nasty, insulting, sexually explicit, racially disparaging, religiously disparaging or other inappropriate content we have the right to delete it from the site without notice and to freeze or close your account. This rule also applies to inappropriate Xivio names. Do not create names that are nasty, insulting, sexually explicit, racist, disrespectful of religions or otherwise inappropriate. We can see your messages, so keep it clean and friendly! Xivio should be a clean and fun place for everyone. Do not abuse the chat functions by "spamming" (posting the same message many times) or using them to make "party boards" - this can result in warnings or a frozen account, too! Finally, if you ask for another user's password or personally identifiable information, for any reason, your account can be frozen or terminated. If you see anything inappropriate on the site, or if anyone sends you a message that makes you uncomfortable or asks for your password, please e-mail us immediately at: .
3. By creating a Xivio avatar, by chatting in message rooms and posting on message boards, or sending us comments you are agreeing that Bubby4j can use your avatar and/or content elsewhere on our Services, in our advertising, or in any media (now or hereafter known), throughout the universe and forever (including, without limitation, in connection with websites, television programs, motion pictures, games, merchandising and advertising), without a royalty or payment of any kind to you. So, this means we can use your character and information however we want for as long as we choose.
4. By submitting any other material to us, you (and your parents) are automatically granting us permission to use those materials for free in any manner we can think of forever throughout the universe. These materials must be created ONLY by the person submitting them - you cannot submit someone else's work.
5. You understand that Bubby4j will oversee chat rooms and filter content, but it is the parent or legal guardian's responsibility to enable such filters. You understand that bad people can use chat functions and that chat rooms can be dangerous places if you do not use caution and good sense. You agree not to give out any personal information including your password, your first and last name, your phone number, e-mail address, instant messenger screen name or other contact information and not to ask for personal information from other members. Use common sense and follow Xivio Rules (click to link to safety policy)!
6. If you steal Objects or vio from other members, cheat on any of our games, use any hacking scripting or editing programs in Xivio, violate Xivio Rules (click to link) or break the law, we will freeze or terminate your account, or if appropriate, report you to the Police!
7. No one from Bubby4j will ever ask you for your password so do not EVER give it out. If someone does, please e-mail us at: .
8. Xivio Staff (known as Guardians in the virtual world) are experienced users who may be able to help you find your way around Xivio. However, Guardians are not employees or representatives of Bubby4j. Please use the same care in dealing with Guardians as you do with other users. If you have concerns about abuse in Xivio please contact us at: .
