By continuing to use the Service after those changes become effective, you are agreeing to be bound by the revised Terms of Service; if you do not agree to the change, do not use the Services after the change is effective, in which case the change will not apply to you.
We have placed this detail over and above all of our other terms because it is the most important (although it is also referenced below). Please note that the botfriend.me platform is only open to adults looking to express themselves in the form of messaging. We have zero tolerance for any minors on the platform, whether such individuals are actually minors or pretending to be minors perhaps in a misguided attempt at role-play. Moreover, we have zero tolerance for any image of any minor being uploaded to our platform for any reason. Please be advised that we reserve the right to and do report each and every suspected minor to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and any and all other law enforcement agencies we feel appropriate. If you believe that a minor is using the site, we request and encourage members to report each and every user he or she encounters which he or she believes or suspects to be under the age of 18. If you are a minor, you must immediately leave this site now. You are not legally permitted on botfriend for any reason, and if we find you on this site, we will report you to law enforcement as noted above. We will not reactivate you for any reason ever.
With respect to all other matters, we have attempted to keep our rules to a minimum only imposing those we feel are necessary for the safety of our users and the continued operation of botfriend.me.

Arbitration will take place in Orange County, California exclusively.
You and the Site hereby agree that no action (whether for arbitration, damages, injunctive, equitable or other relief, including rescission) will be maintained by any party to enforce any liability or obligation of the other party, whether arising from this Agreement or otherwise, or any other Dispute, unless brought before the expiration of the earlier of one year from the occurrence of the facts giving rise to such claims or within 90 days from either the actual discovery of the facts giving rise to such claims or from the date on which the party should have, in the exercise of reasonable diligence, discovered such facts.
