Every user can individually review the then-current TOU at any time at: http://www.sociologyby.org/company/terms.php.

In addition, each user's use of particular Services may be subject to specific guidelines or rules ("Service-specific Rules") posted from time to time and incorporated by this reference into the TOU. A user's use of Lycoris Websites and/or its Services constitutes full acceptance of and agreement to the TOU; if a user does not accept our TOU, they are not granted rights to use Lycoris Websites or any of its Services, as defined herein, and should refrain from accessing Lycoris Websites and its Services.

Lycoris reserves the right to update the TOU at anytime without notice to you.

Lycoris Websites reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, Lycoris Websites or any Service thereon (or any part thereof) with notice to users and the public as described above, or immediately in the event of technical difficulties. Lycoris Websites shall not be liable to any user or other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance except as expressly provided herein.

2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE; NO WEB ACCESS

Lycoris Websites is a website owned and operated by Lycoris. Lycoris Websites currently offers users access to a rich collection of on-line resources including online forums, shopping services, personalized content and operating system software (collectively, the "Services"). To use the Services, each user must independently obtain access to the Internet, either directly or through devices that access Internet-based content, and pay any and all service fees or equipment costs associated with such access.

3. REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS

If required by the site in question, each user must: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information on the Service's registration form (collectively, the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data as necessary. If, after investigation, we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any user's information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we may suspend or terminate that user's account and prohibit any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof) by that user other than as expressly provided herein.

Each user will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service's registration process and is wholly responsible for maintaining the confidentiality thereof and wholly liable for all activities occurring thereunder. Lycoris Websites cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from a user's failure to comply with this Section, including any loss or damage arising from any user's failure to (a) immediately notify Lycoris Websites of any unauthorized use of their password or account or any other breach of security and (b) ensure that they exit from their account at the end of each session.

Lycoris Websites handle user Registration Data in accordance with the Lycoris Websites Privacy Policy accessible at http://www.sociologyby.org/company/privacy.php.

4. CONTENT

All information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or any other materials whatsoever (collectively, "Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that the user, and not Lycoris, is entirely responsible for all Content that they upload, post, email or otherwise transmits via Lycoris Websites or any Service. No user shall transmit Content or otherwise conduct or participate in any activities on Lycoris Websites and/or any Service which, in the opinion of Lycoris' counsel, are prohibited by law in applicable jurisdictions, including laws governing the encryption of software, the export of technology, the transmission of obscenity or the permissible uses of intellectual property.

Lycoris Websites will not pre-screen or review Content, but Lycoris reserves the right to refuse or delete any Content of which it becomes aware which it reasonably deems not to fulfill the Purpose. In addition, Lycoris shall have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse or delete any Content which it reasonably considers to violate the TOU or be otherwise illegal. Lycoris, in its sole and absolute discretion, may preserve Content and may also disclose Content if required to do so by law or judicial or governmental mandate or as reasonably determined necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Lycoris, its users and the public. Lycoris does not control the Content posted via the Service and, as such, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. Under no circumstances will Lycoris Websites be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, liability for any errors or omissions in any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via Lycoris Websites or any Service thereon.

Each user, by using Lycoris Websites or any Service, may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable. Each user must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content.
