End users must not: Any user in violation of this policy can expect their account to be suspended or deleted without warning.

End users are advised not to post personal data beyond that necessary for the correct operation of the system to or through servers. Currently this is limited to e-mail addresses for most users.

End users are advised to consider before posting or uploading anything that it will be available to everyone in the list or file hosting community to which they have subscribed, and may be distributed by email or download to personal computers operated by any or all of them. Do not expect that, once posted, it can ever be completely deleted or traced. Any personal financial data found on the system will be removed immediately by the system owner. I don't store my card numbers here and I certainly would not recommend that anyone else does so !
