Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you do not have permission to access the Service.
All users shall remain compliant with these Terms. Failure to do so can lead to their account being blocked and all their content deleted.
If a letter, profile, or other activity is found to be non-compliant, the user may receive a compliance violation and might be permitted to correct the issue before they can use the Service again. For example, correcting a compliance violation for a letter usually requires the user to delete the letter.
Depending on the circumstances and discretion of Pet Letter's staff, any user can be permanently blocked and no longer be permitted to use the Service. Should the user's content contain anything serious in nature or concern, the authorities may be notified.
If profanity is discovered anywhere on a specific pet’s profile (letters, profile, replies, etc.) this issue will require correction before the user may use the Service again, or for any of that user's letters to be available to other users. Should profane language be discovered, the user may be required to delete the letter, reply, or update their profile in order to use the Service. The user may also be permanently blocked and no longer be permitted to use the Service.
We realize mistakes can happen and that is why in some circumstances another chance can be given, but if a user receives multiple compliance violations then their account may be become permanently blocked and subsequently deleted.
Blocked or inactive accounts will become permanently deleted either immediately or at a later time.
All letters created on Pet Letter's services are public and visible to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.
All letters can be shared by any user, visitor and others on social media or by other means.
Users with active accounts may delete any letters they created.
If a user replies to one of your letters, you have the option to delete that letter. Conversely, if you reply to a letter, the author of the letter you replied to has the option to delete your reply.
In order to keep Pet Letters enjoyable for all users, we integrated a way for users to cast a vote on another user's letter which may lead to removal of the letter from the Service. The formula we used for this determination is as follows:
Blocked or deleted letters may be permanently purged from the Service at any time.
All images uploaded to Pet Letter's services are public and visible to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.
The image upload routines attempt to remove personally identifiable information from uploaded images such as location information and exif data before saving uploaded images onto the Service storage. However, removal of identifiable information from images is not guaranteed and we recommend you only upload images that are free of personally identifiable information such as location data, exif data, or file-names to this or any other service where you would not want that information to be available to other users.
You may not use Pet Letters as a storage mechanism for safekeeping of images. Any images uploaded to the Service are subject to deletion at any time. Therefore, only copies of images should be uploaded to Pet Letters as the Service is not intended to be used to preserve content. Content and images can and will be deleted from the Service at any time. Deletion can be done from a number of discretionary or maintenance operations that permanently delete unpopular, irrelevant, unwanted, unused or obsolete content from the Service.
On Pet Letters, we take decency very seriously. You may NOT post or share intimate files of somebody or something in your profile, letter, reply, or anywhere else on the site.
This includes but not limited to:
Note: Pet Letters takes the safety of our user’s very seriously. Anything that violates these rules can result in automatic deletion of account at minimum.
At Pet Letters we give users the freedom to express themselves. If a user is harassed by another, we realize it limits the will for a user to express their ideas. We take harassment/bullying very seriously on our platform and do not permit it.
This includes but not limited to:
Accounts or pets that are unused for 6 months or longer may be deleted at any time.
All types of advertisements or solicitations are prohibited on Pet Letters unless given specific consent or agreement with Tech Dynamics Inc. Accounts used to advertise, promote goods and services, or political agendas are subject to deletion at any time.
