If you do not agree to the TOU, you are not authorized to use ECT. We may modify the TOU at any time in our sole discretion. You are responsible for periodically checking for changes and are bound by them if you continue to use ECT. Our privacy policy (https://ectunnel.com/community/pages/privacy/), prohibited list (https://ectunnel.com/community/help/terms), and all other policies, site rules, and agreements referenced below or on ECT, are fully incorporated into this TOU, and you agree to them as well.

You agree not to display, "frame," make derivative works, distribute, license, or sell, content from ECT, excluding postings you create.

You agree (1) not to bypass said moderation, (2) we are not liable for moderating or not moderating, and (3) nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate, or not.
