Image Filter Terms of Service
WebFurther, LLC (“WebFurther”) provides its WebPurify Image Filter services (the “Services”) to you, subject to the following Terms of Service (the “ToS”). The ToS may change from time to time. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS DO NOT USE THE SERVICE AS VIOLATION OF THE TERMS CAN LEAD TO LEGAL LIABILITY. The ToS may be changed by WebFurther effective immediately by sending notification to the email address set forth in your WebPurify Image Filter account; provided that Material Changes will become effective thirty (30) days after such notification. By continuing to access or the Services after the effective date of any such change, you agree to be bound by the modified ToS.
