Finally, Softonic Solutions reserves the right to create and adapt all non-UGC content (such as product descriptions or ‘Did You Know’ texts) to the project needs.

Suspension and Ban

A user account can be banned from the site if non-compliant behavior has been repeatedly detected.

A site ban may also take place as a measure to resolve conflict between individuals or to revert obvious vandalism (behavior deliberately intended to obstruct or defeat the project's purpose). Severe offenses, though, may result in an immediate ban without warning.

An immediate permanent ban of an account may also result from attempting to or successfully interfering with the performance of the website or engaging in any activity that intentionally attempts against the integrity of the platform and the service provided to end users.

We reserve the right to enforce, or not enforce, these policies in our sole discretion, and these policies don't create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act in any particular manner.
