a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and Usabilla

such change, and may do so in any reasonable manner, such as posting a change
on the screen you see when you log in to your Usabilla.com account or via the

storage limits, Usabilla may require you to reduce the storage you are using or
pay an appropriate fee.

entries about its policy changes, and you may wish to check your application
for Usabilla’s announcements about any such changes.

others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the
intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on

notify Usabilla. Usabilla will, as it is able, respond to all such notices,
including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or
disabling all links to the infringing material. In the case of a user who may

will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Usabilla
to any person in respect of any such termination.
