FORM Holdings may add additional websites and/or services from time to time as it expands its offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new websites and/or services when added. By using and/or visiting any website owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by FORM Holdings (collectively, including all Content, as defined below, available through FORM Holdings' domain names, the "FORM Holdings Website", or "Website" and any associated services and applications on your mobile device), you signify your assent to both these terms and conditions (the "Terms of Use") and the terms and conditions of FORM Holdings' Privacy Policy, which are incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to any of these terms, then please do not use the FORM Holdings Website. You may be accessing the Website from a computer, mobile device, App or by any other means now known or hereafter devised, and these Terms of Use govern your use of the Website and your conduct, regardless of the means of access.

A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice and/or has had a User Submission removed from the Website more than twice.

FORM Holdings may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Use at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
