The online socializing service (“Service”) that you are now accessing is powered, hosted and maintained by STUDIO EHARA, or through a network of online Services developed, hosted and maintained by STUDIO EHARA (each a “Network Artists Service” and, collectively, the ”Network Artists Services”), each of which is linked from websites owned or maintained by various STUDIO EHARA third party affiliates. Collectively, the STUDIO EHARA Sites and Network Artists Services controlled and operated by STUDIO EHARA are referred to as ARTBAND Networks(“ARTBAND”).
This agreement (“Terms of Use”) governs your use of the Services, the STUDIO EHARA Sites, and each past, present or future Network Artists Service.

  4. Modifications to the Services

    ARTBAND may, in its sole discretion, add, delete, modify or amend features and/or services contained within the Services, or any Network Artists Service.
  5. Joining ARTBAND via a Network Artists Service

    If you register to use the Services through a Network Artists Service, and ARTBAND’s relationship with the Partner associated with that given Network Artists Service is severed for any reason, in most instances you will not forfeit your membership rights to use the Services, nor lose the any personal profiles you created you might have maintained that were associated with your account. Instead, ARTBAND will, in most instances, automatically convert your then-current membership into a ARTBAND membership, which will enable you to access your account information and utilize any existing paid status you might maintain through ARTBAND. Note that in some instances, ARTBAND’s agreement with certain Partners provides that your membership information (including your registration information) will be shared with that particular Partner upon termination of the relationship between ARTBAND and that particular Partner. In those instances, ARTBAND and /or such Partner may provide you with information advising you on the status of your Personals account, the process they will undertake to convert your membership, and the various options available to you at that time.
    If a Partner’s relationship with ARTBAND is terminated for any reason, ARTBAND will endeavor to ensure that your account, personals profiles and any paid status will continue to be available to you through an alternate interface.
  6. Use of the Forum and Your Account

    With respect to any ARTBAND forum (“forum” means any message board, chat room, email message, instant messenger or similar interactive service appearing on ARTBAND), you agree not to post, transmit, distribute or link to content that is unlawful, harassing, abusive, threatening, harmful, indecent, obscene, tortuous, libelous, defamatory, invasive of another's privacy or otherwise liable to be viewed as objectionable or threatening physical harm to any person or group.
