3. Establishing an Account.
3.1 In order to access and use the Meta Websites and/or Service, you may be required to sign up for an Account (as defined below). You may establish one (1) user account, or access the Service through one (1) account on a third party website or service through which the Service is available (e.g., a social network) (the “Account”) pursuant to the terms, conditions and restrictions contained in this Agreement. In order to establish an Account, you must be 13 or older if you are a resident of the United States or over the age of majority in your country of residence. Users who are residents of the United States between the ages of 13 and 17 may establish an account only with permission and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who has reviewed and accepted the terms of this Agreement. You may not share the Account with anyone. You are liable for all uses of the Account. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you will have no ownership or other property interest in the Account, and you further acknowledge and agree that all rights in and to the Account are and will forever be owned by Meta.

3.3 During the registration process, you will be required to select a user name and a password that are specific to the Account (collectively referred to hereunder as “Password”).

Meta is not responsible for any harm that may result to the Account (including without limitation the deletion or modification of characters in the Account) as a result of a lost or shared password. Meta is not responsible in the event that the Account is “hacked,” or if the Account or your computer is damaged by a virus, or for any other issues with your computer or the Account. The user name you choose will be subject to the naming guidelines contained in this Agreement.
3.4 Meta does not recognize the transfer of Accounts. You may not offer any Account for sale or trade, and any such offer is a violation of this Agreement and will result in termination of the Account.
3.5 You agree to immediately notify Meta of any unauthorized use of your Password or Account or any other breach of security. YOU ARE ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION AND FOR ANY AND ALL ACTIVITIES (INCLUDING PURCHASES AND CHARGES, AS APPLICABLE) THAT ARE CONDUCTED THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT.

Without limiting the foregoing, Meta retains the right to decline service to any user who violates this Agreement or any SLA.
6.1 All title, ownership rights and intellectual property rights in and to the Service and the Meta Websites (including without limitation any user accounts, software, titles, computer code, technology, themes, objects, concepts, artwork, animations, sounds, musical compositions, audio-visual effects, methods of operation, moral rights, any related documentation, “applets” incorporated into Meta Websites, transcripts of the chat rooms, character profile information, and the Meta Website client and server software) are owned by Meta or its licensors. The Service, Meta Websites and any Software are protected by the copyright laws of the United States, international copyright treaties and conventions, and other laws. All rights are reserved. The Service and Meta Websites may contain certain licensed materials, and Meta’s licensors may protect their rights in the event of any violation of this Agreement.
6.2 Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted on the Meta Websites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked to our Designated Copyright Agent, who can be reached as follows: email@example.com.
To be effective, the notice must include the following information, in compliance with Section 512(c) of the DMCA: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Meta Websites are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Meta to locate the material on the Meta Website(s); (iv) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (v) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Meta’s Designated Copyright Agent should be contacted only if you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and such infringement is occurring through use of the Meta Website(s).
Please note that these notifications are legal notices. Meta may provide copies of such notices to the participants in the dispute, or to third parties, at Meta’s discretion and as required by law. Please note that the information provided in these notices is not protected or kept confidential.
6.3 Meta Trademarks. For example, META, META 1, META 2, META GLASSES, and the “M” and “META” logos are trademarks or registered trademarks of Meta. You may not use Meta trademarks or trade dress in connection with any product or service that is not owned by Meta, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or subscribers, or in any manner that disparages Meta or its licensors. Except as expressly provided herein, Meta and its licensors do not grant you any express or implied rights, and all rights, title and interest that Meta has in and to the Meta trademarks, trade dress, or Meta Websites and the content therein that are not expressly granted by Meta to you are retained by Meta.
6.4 License Grant of User-Generated Content to Meta and Others. If and when you contribute content to the Meta Websites (“User-Generated Content”), you expressly grant to Meta a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, fully paid, royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable and irrevocable right to publish, use, translate, archive, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, distribute and otherwise communicate, and publicly display and publicly perform the User-Generated Content, or any portion thereof, in any manner or form and in any medium or forum, whether now known or hereafter devised, without notice, payment or attribution of any kind to you or any third party. You grant Meta all licenses, consents and clearances to enable Meta to use such User-Generated Content for such purposes. You waive and agree not to assert any moral or similar rights you may have in such User-Generated Content. If the Meta Website to which you contribute User-Generated Content permits others to access and use that content as part of the Meta Websites or Services, then you also grant all other users of the relevant Meta Website or Services the right to use, copy, modify, display, perform, create derivative works from and otherwise communicate and distribute your User-Generated Content on or through the Meta Website(s) without further notice, attribution or compensation to you. You represent and warrant that you have all the rights necessary to grant the rights in this Section and that the use and publication of your User-Generated Content will not violate any law, including that such User-Generated Content does not infringe on any third party copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property or privacy rights and that such User-Generated Content is not restricted or otherwise prohibited from use and publication outside of your country by the applicable laws and regulations. Meta reserves the right to remove or modify User-Generated Content if it violates these Terms or is offensive. Meta may, in its sole and absolute discretion, suspend or terminate your use of your Account, access to the Service and/or Meta Website(s) if you violate these Terms. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, Meta does not claim any ownership rights in User-Generated Content.
6.5 All comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas and other submissions disclosed or submitted to Meta (“Feedback”) will be the exclusive property of Meta. You hereby agree that Meta may use, sell, exploit and disclose the Feedback in any manner, without restriction, and without compensation to you.
7.1 This Agreement is effective until terminated. Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately by delivering to the other party written notice of such termination or by terminating the Account. Meta reserves the right to terminate this Agreement without notice, if, in Meta’s sole and absolute discretion, you fail to comply with any terms contained in this Agreement or SLA.
7.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Meta reserves the right to suspend, permanently discontinue or terminate the Service, the Meta Website(s), any Software and/or your Account, or your access to any of the foregoing, at any time. Upon any discontinuation or termination of the Service, Meta Website(s), Software or your Account, this Agreement will terminate with respect to the applicable Service, Software, Account and/or Meta Website. IN THE EVENT OF ANY SUSPENSION, DISCONTINUATION OR TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE SERVICE, META WEBSITES, SOFTWARE OR YOUR ACCOUNT, YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY REFUNDS OR OTHER COMPENSATION FOR ANY REASON.
8. Equitable Remedies.
The rights granted to you and obligations made hereunder to Meta are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which will irreparably harm Meta and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone. As a result, in the event that you breach this Agreement, you hereby agree that Meta would be irreparably damaged if this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that Meta will be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as Meta may otherwise have available to it under applicable laws. You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages (if any).
This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of California, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any state and federal courts located in the County of San Mateo, California, United States of America for any claims or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Meta Websites and Services, and waive any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from this Agreement and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, this is the entire Agreement between you and Meta relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral Agreements between you and Meta with respect to such subject matter.
The failure by Meta to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
12. Limitation of Liability.
NEITHER META NOR ANY OF ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS, ADVERTISERS, SPONSORS OR PARTNERS, NOR ITS OR THEIR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONSULTANTS, AGENTS, ATTORNEYS OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES, ARE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF GOOD WILL OR LOST PROFITS), UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SERVICE AND/OR META WEBSITES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE CONTENT AND SERVICES CONTAINED THEREIN), YOUR ACCOUNT, ANY LINKED WEBSITE OR ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE META WEBSITES, EVEN IF META HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Some jurisdictions do not allow for the exclusion or limitation of damages (including incidental or consequential), loss, or liability from intentional acts (including fraud, fraudulent misrepresentations, and failure to disclose defects), product liability, or for death or personal injury. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will be interpreted as excluding liability which cannot be excluded in those jurisdictions. If you reside, or are otherwise subject to the laws in one of those jurisdictions any statutory entitlement available to you will be deemed limited to the extent (if at all) permissible under that law and, if limitation is not permitted, the limitations in this Section 12 may not apply to you.
