  • Breach of these content standards

You warrant that any Contribution you make shall comply with these content standards, and you will be liable to us and indemnify us for any breach of that warranty. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty.

  • immediate, temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our App;
  • immediate, temporary or permanent removal of any Contribution uploaded by you to our App;
