CHANGES TO TERMS

You are free to stop using the Services at any time. You understand and agree that we may or may not delete your Content in the event that you stop using the Services. Account termination may result in destruction of any Personal Submissions and/or Device Submissions associated with your account; however, you understand and agree that we may retain copies of such Content indefinitely. In the event that we elect to terminate your account, we will try to provide advance notice to you prior to termination so that you are able to retrieve any important Content stored in your account. You understand and agree that we may provide no advanced notice for any reason, but usually because it would be impractical, illegal, not in the interest of someone’s safety or security, or otherwise harmful to the rights or property of Etekcity.
If any provision of this agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
