You warrant that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and be bound by the Terms and that by using drbblr you will not be violating any law or regulation of the country in which you are resident. You are solely responsible for your compliance with all applicable local laws and regulations.

What kind of content can I post on drbblr?
You are able to post all kinds of things on drbblr, including photographs, messages and other content (“Content”).
There are some rules about what is acceptable though, so when you are using drbblr you may not post or send any Content which:
- contains expletives or language which could be deemed offensive or is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
- is obscene, pornographic or otherwise may offend human dignity;
- is abusive, insulting or threatening, or which promotes or encourages racism, sexism, hatred or bigotry;
- encourages any illegal activity including, without limitation, terrorism, inciting racial hatred or the submission of which in itself constitutes committing a criminal offence;
- is defamatory;
- relates to commercial activities (including, without limitation, sales, competitions and advertising, links to other websites or premium line telephone numbers);
- involves the transmission of “junk” mail or “spam”;
- contains any spy ware, adware, viruses, corrupt files, worm programmes or other malicious code designed to interrupt, damage or limit the functionality of or disrupt any software, hardware, telecommunications, networks, servers or other equipment, Trojan horse or any other material designed to damage, interfere with, wrongly intercept or expropriate any data or personal information whether from drbblr or otherwise; or
- itself, or the posting of which, infringes any third party’s rights (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights and privacy rights).
Please use your common sense when picking the Content that you choose to post on or send via drbblr because you are solely responsible for, and bear all liability in relation to, such Content.
Are there any rules relating to personal information?
You may not display any personal contact or banking information on your individual profile (“Profile”) whether in relation to you or any other person (for example, home addresses or postcodes, telephone numbers, email addresses, URLs, credit/debit card or other banking details). If you do choose to reveal any personal information about yourself to other users, whether via chat, email or otherwise, it is at your own risk. We encourage you to use the same caution in disclosing details about yourself to third parties online as you would under any other circumstances. We recommend you follow our Guidelines and Safety Tips when doing so.
What about other people’s personal information, can I use it?
You may only use other drbblr user’s personal information to the extent that your use of it matches drbblr’s purpose of allowing people to meet one another. You may not use other users' information for commercial purposes, to spam, to harass, or to make unlawful threats. drbblr reserves the right to terminate your account if you misuse other users' information.
Can I tell my friends my password and let them log on as me?
The short answer is no. Only you are authorised to access your account with drbblr.

If you suspect that someone has gained access to your account, you must let us know immediately by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org and telling us of your suspicions or concerns. You must also immediately change your password. drbblr reserves the right to terminate your account if you violate our rules on keeping your password secure.
Who can see the Content that I put on drbblr?
When you upload Content to drbblr it can be accessed and viewed by the general public. If you do not want such Content to be viewed by others, then you can use the privacy settings and select the person(s) to whom you wish to give access. If you still do not want such Content to be viewed by others, then you should not upload it to drbblr. We reserve the right (without obligation) at our sole discretion and without giving you notice, to remove or edit, limit or block access to any Content that you upload or submit to drbblr without any incurring liability to you. We have no obligation to display any Content that you submit to drbblr, nor to check the accuracy or truthfulness of any Content submitted to drbblr, nor to monitor your use or the use of other users of drbblr.
