This acceptable use policy sets out the terms between you and us under which you may access our website www.noancestudio.com (“our site”). This good use policy applies to all users and visitors to our site.
Your use of our site means that you accept, and agree to abide by, all the policies in this acceptable use policy, which supplement our terms of website use.
www.noancestudio.com is a site operated by NOANCE (“we” or “us”).
You may use our site only for lawful purposes.
You may not use our site:
— In any way that breaches any applicable local, national, or international law or regulation.

You also agree:

We may, from time to time, provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
— Chat rooms.
— Bulletin boards.
(together with the “interactive services”).
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (particularly children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site. We will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor, or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service to communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. In addition, minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will typically provide you with a means of contacting the moderator should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to all material you contribute to our site (“contributions”) and any interactive services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit of the following standards and the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution and its whole.
