»We may collect personal identification information from Users in a
variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our

opportunity to remove the relevant data IMMEDIATELY. If the files are
not removed within ONE day, we claim the right to remove the user's
Removing the account completely is a bit over the top, as opposed to
just removing the files.
