Terms of Service
Yes, every respectable place has rules you have to follow. By becoming a Sploder™ member you agree first and foremost to have fun! Now for the necessary legal statements...
Acceptable Content Guidelines
Sploder™ is a service that allows you to publish customized content to the general public. You must acknowledge this and make certain that your Submitted User Content is decent, appropriate for a general audience, and does not break any national or international laws.
Sploder™ is meant for a general audience. Do not use any profane language or post any suggestive or inappropriate material to the public. We are not responsible for the views expressed in your games.

Your IP address is logged and we reserve the right to take proper action to preserve the quality of content on our site. This could include punitive or legal action.
Submitted User Content refers to any and all content you submit for posting or create by using Applications on this site. This included games, game levels, game data, game concepts, writings, messages, user feedback, comments or suggestions.
All social interactions and communication must follow the Acceptable Content Guidelines. Registered users may also choose to disallow communication from other users by disabling it in their account settings.

Limitation of Liability
Sploder™ will do everything it can to make the use of this system a pleasant one. However, it must always remain true that you expressly understand and agree that under no circumstances shall Sploder™ be liable to any user on account of that user's use of or reliance on this service. Such limitation of liability shall apply to prevent recovery of direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, and punitive damages. Such limitation of liability shall apply whether the damages arise from use or misuse of and reliance on this service, from inability to use the service, or from the interruption, suspension, or termination of the service.
Sploder™ will do everything it can to make sure that the integrity of your data on Sploder™ remains intact. However, Sploder™ cannot be held liable for any loss of data.
Service Scope and Usage
Sploder's servers do not have unlimited bandwidth. Bandwidth limitations apply for all users. Users may not post games hosted on Sploder's servers in such a fashion that the same game is repeated multiple times on the same page, nor needlessly repeated on many pages of a site. This includes bulletin-board sig-files and sites' global navigation. This causes repeated, redundant, and sometimes concurrent downloads from Sploder's servers, and quickly uses up bandwidth.
If a user uses the system in such a way to adversely effect the performance or efficient operation of the site, Sploder™ reserves the right to terminate the user's account. Users must not attempt to circumvent the security and privacy systems in place, or attempt to hack the system.
Sploder™ reserves the right to terminate service to you if you do not meet these terms. Sploder™ will also cooperate with authorities through its respective service providers.
Sploder™ cannot be held responsible for limitations placed on the system by its service providers.
