You understand that the Freemii Services and software embodied within the Freemii Services may include security components that permit digital materials to be protected, and that use of these materials is subject to usage rules set by Freemii and/or content providers who provide content to the Freemii Services.

When you register with Freemii, you acknowledge that in using the Freemii Services to send electronic communications (including but not limited to email, search queries, sending messages to Freemii Chat or Freemii Groups, uploading photos and files to Flickr, and other Internet activities), you will be causing communications to be sent through Freemii's computer networks, portions of which are located in California, Texas, Virginia, and other locations in the United States and portions of which are located abroad.

With respect to Content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of Freemii Groups, the license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform and publicly display such Content on the Freemii Services solely for the purposes of providing and promoting the specific Freemii Group to which such Content was submitted or made available.
