Terms & Conditions
MWO Terms of Service
As of August 30, 2012, thank you for visiting MWO, a production of Bunch (“MWO”, “we”, “our”, or “us”). The terms and conditions below (the “Terms”) are intended to make you aware of your legal rights and responsibilities with respect to your access to and use of MWO and any related software applications whether existing now or in the future (collectively, the “Properties”). We aim to make your experience using the Properties enjoyable. By accessing or using the Properties, you agree to be bound by these Terms, which in part are intended to make sure your legal rights are respected by other users of the Properties, and that in turn you respect the legal rights of MWO and its other users. These Terms constitute the complete agreement between you and MWO, regarding the Properties. We may change the Terms at any time by posting a revised Terms of Service on this page; such changes will be effective upon posting. Please carefully read the entire Terms.
Use of Properties
You agree to use the Properties only in compliance with these Terms and applicable law, and in a manner that does not violate our legal rights or those of any third party. You agree that you will only use the Properties for your own personal use. You must be at least 13 years of age to use the Properties. Use of the Properties is void where prohibited. Certain portions of the Properties may be secured or otherwise protected from access except for authorised users with valid login and password information. Individuals without authorisation attempting to access these portions of the Properties may be subject to prosecution.
In creating an account, you represent to us that all information provided to us in such process is true, accurate and correct. If you are creating an account on behalf of a business, then you represent to us that you are the owner or authorised agent of such business. You may not impersonate someone else, create or use an account for anyone other than yourself, provide an email address other than your own, create multiple accounts except as otherwise authorised by us, or provide or use false information to obtain access on the Properties that you are not legally entitled to claim. You acknowledge that any false claiming of an account may cause MWO or third parties to incur substantial economic damages and losses for which you may be held accountable.
