offending person(s) having their account(s) amended or removed from the site.
Any user, regardless of age, who makes attempts to extract personal information from user(s) under the age of 18, including, but not limited to, phone numbers, addresses, real names, or photographs, may have their account(s) amended or
removed, and their ability to access and use American Brain Foundation's services immediately and indefinitely revoked. Such decisions are at the sole discretion of American Brain Foundation, and are handled on a case-by-case basis.

Circumventing Limitations or Blocks
American Brain Foundation may offer a variety of services with specific limitations, including, but not limited to, blocking users for violating this terms of service. Circumventing these limitations by making
multiple accounts or chatrooms will result in some, or all, of your account(s) and/or chatroom(s) to be suspended or removed from the service.
If your account or IP Address is blocked, you may not make a new account without first obtaining express written permission from American Brain Foundation. Any attempts to evade any blocks or suspensions will result in some, or all, of your account(s)

from the service.
American Brain Foundation does not allow user(s) to promote, plan, glorify, or otherwise discuss methods of harming oneself or any other person(s), either on or off the service. Any discussion of this may risk having your information turned over to the
