illegal activity, or be in contravention of any UK or European law or regulation and any other applicable

your Content elsewhere. Folissimo Ltd should not be held liable in any way in the highly unlikely situation
that any of your Content on Folissimo be lost or corrupted (see Limitation of Liability below).

never claim permanent ownership
. However, in order to host and display your Content we require a Limited License as specified below:

Subscription or the Speedy Discount (if appropriate), you will receive a further number of “Extra Days”.

Extra Days will only be given in exchange for the Registration of genuine, human users. We reserve the right to
remove your Extra Days and possibly terminate your Folissimo Account should we suspect foul play including, but
not limited to the use of “bots” or other non-human, automated means of registration.

Annual Subscription or Speedy Discount. Data related to your Affiliate Link is available on the “Share and Earn”
