Removal of Your Stuff

You may unregister with us at any time by emailing us at info@helpemailtales.com, after which we will use commercially reasonable efforts to stop displaying any of your public account information. Disabling your account anonymizes Your Stuff but does not automatically remove it. Because other Help Email Tales users may have acted on Your Stuff, you may not be able to remove or edit your Stuff once you've contributed it to us, and we cannot guarantee complete removal.

We may monitor and review your account, Your Stuff, and your activity for compliance with these Terms, and may remove or disable your account or Stuff for any reason, including, but not limited to, violation of Terms, alleged infringement or verbal, physical, written or other abuse of another user, employee, member or officer. We will do our best to communicate with you via your registered email address prior to removal of your account or your Stuff, but are not obligated to do so and cannot be responsible for failure to reach you via email.

We cannot guarantee access to your account or Your Stuff. We reserve the right to reclaim any username created by a user on behalf of businesses or individuals that hold legal claims or trademarks on that username. We also reserve the right to reclaim any username that has been inactive for 6 months or more, and your account may be permanently disabled due to prolonged inactivity.
