Welcome to The SoBros Network!
The SoBros Network (“we” or “us”) is here for your (and our) entertainment – that being said, we still need to have a few ground rules in place. Think of this as a “Using The SoBros Network Website 101” guide.
- Your Access to the Website
This Website is for use only by persons located in the United States. We make no claims that the Website or any of its content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. You may not use the Website, provide any personal information to The SoBros Network, or otherwise submit personal information through the Website (including, for example, a name or email address) if you are under the age of sixteen (16). You may only use the Website if you can form a binding contract with the SoBros Network.
We’re serious about this standard. If you’re not old enough, go read a book or something instead.
- What You Can Post
We want this Website to be fun. That’s what The SoBros Network is about, but not at the unfair expense of others and their safety and well-being.
Therefore, while we encourage you to post, share, or the like (collectively, “post”) any content or material (hereinafter, “Content”) to the Website, you agree not to post any Content:
- That is illegal, discriminatory (e.g., hate speech), defamatory, deceptive, abusive, or fraudulent;
- That is threatening, harassing, or encouraging of violence or crime;
- That infringes or violates someone else’s intellectual property rights;
- That impersonates an identity in a deceptive manner, including misrepresentation of affiliation with any person or organization;
- That contains personal and confidential information; or
- That is spam.
We have the right to remove anything you share generally, and especially what is in violation of these provisions – don’t make us have to do this.
You can also help us out with this. That is, if you see anything on our Website that shouldn’t be there, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- What You Can Do
You may use the Website only for lawful purposes and in accordance with these Terms. You agree, when accessing or using our Website, you will not:
- Use the Website to violate applicable law;

- Use any robot, spider, or other automatic device, process, or means to access the Website for any purpose, including monitoring or copying any of the material on the Website;
- Use the Website in any manner that restricts or inhibits anyone’s use or enjoyment of the Website, or which, as determined by us, may harm The SoBros Network or users of the Website, or expose any of said parties to liability; or
- Attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Website.
- What We Can Do
Because someone always has to play the bad cop, we retain the right to remove or refuse to post any Content for any or no reason in our sole discretion. We do not undertake to review Content before it is posted on the Website, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted.
We also have to right to:
- Disclose your identity or other information about you to any third party who claims that Content posted by you violates their rights, including their intellectual property rights or their right to privacy.
- Take appropriate legal action for any illegal or unauthorized use of the Website.
- Terminate or suspend your access to all or part of the Website for any violation of these Terms.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have the right to cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone posting any Content on or through the Website. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS THE SOBROS NETWORK AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY THE SOBROS NETWORK DURING, OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER THE SOBROS NETWORK OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
- License to Your Content
When you post Content on or to the Website, you grant us (and our affiliates and service providers) a non-exclusive, perpetual, fully paid-up, worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display, perform, distribute, transmit, modify, adapt, and create derivative works of, such Content. Thanks for that!
When you post something, you represent and warrant that you own or control all rights in and to the Content and have the right to grant the license granted above.
In other words – If you don’t own it, don’t post it.
- Updating These Terms
As The SoBros Network grows, we may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If we do, we will post the updated Terms and update the Effective Date, found above. All changes are effective immediately when we post them.
