Terms And Conditions
Welcome to the Charisma Brands on-line community and related services (the "Services") developed by Charisma Brands, LLC. Charisma Brands, LLC ("Charisma Brands" or "we") provides the services to you subject to this Terms and Conditions Agreement, which you must read and accept in its entirety before using our Services.
It's critical that you read the entire Terms and Conditions Agreement. It contains important information that addresses prohibited conduct. It outlines liabilities and obligations that you agree to assume each time you use our Service. And it highlights certain rights that we reserve so that we can ensure that our Service will be an enjoyable Internet experience and so that we can remain a responsible member of the Internet community. And, if that's not compelling enough, you should know that, once accepted by you, it's a legally binding document.
Once you read the entire Terms and Conditions Agreement, if you agree to all of its terms, then click on "I agree" where indicated. By doing so, you'll be bound by this Terms and Conditions Agreement whenever you use our Service. We may update, modify, or otherwise change this Terms and Conditions Agreement from time-to-time, particularly when we add, remove, or modify features of the Service, and we make these changes to this Terms and Conditions Agreement without prior notice to you. Those updates, modifications, and changes will be binding on you from the time that we post them. You can always review the most current version of this agreement on our website, and we urge you to do so on a regular basis. Any changes that we make to this Terms and Conditions Agreement will be binding on you even if you fail to read them. It's your responsibility to read this Agreement and keep apprised of all changes to it. If you don't accept this Terms and Conditions Agreement by clicking on "I accept" where indicated below, then you simply can't use our Service.
