If you do not accept and agree to all provisions of the TERMS OF USE, now or in the future, you may reject the TERMS OF USE by immediately terminating all access and use of KOI8, in which case any continuing access or use of KOI8 is unauthorized.

You are also required to comply with, and to ensure compliance with, all laws, ordinances and regulations applicable to your activities on KOI8.

KOI8 is intended and designed for users 18 years of age and older, and access or use by anyone younger is not authorized.

The TERMS OF USE grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive license to access KOI8 and use KOI8, in whole or in part, including but not limited to KOI8 intellectual property therein, solely in compliance with the TERMS OF USE.

The TERMS OF USE do not authorize you to use "KOI8", or any similar or related marks for any use pertaining to collector's databases, social networks, online forums, online communication services or any similar or related use, or any other use that is likely to cause confusion on the part of, to cause mistake by or to deceive the public as to any affiliation, connection, association, origin, sponsorship, approval or endorsement by or with KOI8.

2. MODERATION

KOI8 has the right, but not the obligation, to regulate content (which includes but is not limited to postings, text, code, images, video, binary files, ads, accounts, account information, flags, emails, messages and any other user communications ("content") posted to, stored on or transmitted via KOI8 by any user (or any other third party in any manner); to regulate conduct (including but not limited to any authorized or unauthorized access to or use of KOI8) by any user (or any other third party in any manner); and to enforce the TERMS OF USE, for any reason and in any manner or by any means that KOI8, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate (including but not limited to automated and manual screening, blocking, filtering, exclusion from index pages, exclusion from search results, requiring the use of an application programming interface (API), requiring the use of a bulk posting interface, authorization, verification, and the deletion and/or termination of content, accounts and/or all or any use or access). KOI8 may, in its sole discretion and without notice, start, stop or modify any regulation or enforcement measures at any time. KOI8's action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of the TERMS OF USE by any user (or any other third party) does not waive KOI8's right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct or potential TERMS OF USE violation.

You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by KOI8 or any of its directors, officers, stockholders, employees, consultants, agents or representatives (collectively, "KOI8 Representatives") to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential TERMS OF USE violation is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither KOI8 nor any KOI8 Representative shall be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of the TERMS OF USE.

Although KOI8 Representatives may moderate content, conduct and TERMS OF USE compliance on KOI8 at KOI8's discretion, KOI8 Representatives have no authority to make binding commitments, promises or representations to anyone that they or anyone else on behalf of KOI8 will "take care" of any alleged problem or complaint, or that they or anyone else on behalf of KOI8 will otherwise stop, cure or prevent any problem, content, conduct or purported TERMS OF USE violation from occurring or recurring. Accordingly, you further agree that any representation (written or verbal) by any KOI8 Representative (or by anyone else acting on behalf of KOI8 or by anyone purportedly acting on behalf of KOI8) that KOI8 (including but not limited to any KOI8 Representative, anyone else acting on behalf of KOI8, or anyone purportedly acting on behalf of CL) would or would not prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content (including, without limitation, screen, block, moderate, review, remove, terminate, delete, edit or otherwise stop, cure or exclude any content), or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential or purported TERMS OF USE violation is superseded by this provision and is nonbinding and unenforceable. Specifically, you agree that KOI8, KOI8 Representatives and anyone else authorized to act on behalf of KOI8 shall in no circumstance be liable as a result of any representation that KOI8, a KOI8 Representative or anyone else on behalf of KOI8 would or would not restrict or redress any content, conduct or potential or purported TERMS OF USE violation. This paragraph may not be modified, waived or released except by a written agreement, dated and signed by KOI8's Chief Executive Officer and dated and signed by the individual or entity to whom the modification, waiver or release is granted.

KOI8 also has the right in its sole discretion to limit, modify, interrupt, suspend or discontinue all or any portions of KOI8 at any time without notice. KOI8 and KOI8 Representatives shall not be liable for any such limitations, modifications, interruptions, suspensions or discontinuance, or any purported losses, harm or damages arising from or related thereto.
