DiscoveryGirls.com Website Rules
(Terms of Service)
We’re sorry it’s such a long document but when it comes to protecting children online we’ll go to any length!
If you don’t agree with our rules you cannot be an active member of DiscoveryGirls.com or its services.
The most recent rules can be found at http://www.discoverygirls.com/terms. Please visit this page every now and then to see if we’ve added any new rules.
Sometimes there are contests and other things on DiscoveryGirls.com that have their own rules. Just the way a school has its own rules and a game played at school has other rules that you must agree to in order to play, any new rules we might have for contests, apps or other things must also be agreed to.
When you sign up to join DiscoveryGirls.com, you’ll need to choose your Screen Name and create a Secret Password. These two things along with your real name and email address become your personal DiscoveryGirls.com Account.
The Secret Password you choose when you join is what protects your DiscoveryGirls.com Account. You must agree to keep your Secret Password very safe and not share it with anyone.
You must also agree not to ask other members for their Secret Password or try to use another member’s Secret Password.
It’s important for your safety to tell us (in an e-mail) about anyone you think might be trying to steal your Secret Password or share their Secret Password with others. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You and only you are responsible for keeping your DiscoveryGirls.com Account safe and how your account is used.
It is very important to understand that you cannot:
- Use another Member’s Name and pretend to be that person
(b) Use a Screen Name that Discovery Girls thinks is inappropriate
(c) Use a Screen Name that is owned by another person or business without their permission.
To protect you and our other members, any dishonest, abusive, or illegal activity (such as bullying) on DiscoveryGirls.com can result in the closing of your account. Discovery Girls can close your account without your permission and can choose to report your bad behavior to the police.
It is very important to understand that your DiscoveryGirls.com Account is a privilege. It is not something you own.
If you, your parent(s) or guardian(s) or Discovery Girls decide to close your account, all of your photos, comments and anything else you have uploaded to the Discovery Girls website will be removed.
You or your parent(s) or guardian(s) can tell Discovery Girls to close your account at any time.
When you ask to have your account closed, it happens right away, so be very sure this is what you want because it cannot be undone.
Discovery Girls can decide to close your account at any time and does not need your permission to do this.
If it’s discovered that you have broken any of the rules in any way, you agree that Discovery Girls cannot be blamed by anyone for the closure of your account.
