1.1 Members and Visitors
When you register and join the Vitay Service, you become a Member. If you have chosen not to register for our Services, you may access certain features as a “Visitor.”
2.1 Service Eligibility
The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 16.
To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (described below) or older; (2) you will only have one Vitay account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by Vitay from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 16.
“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Vitay to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.
