1. Summary of Service

1.1. The Service, OAXUSA (also www.oaxusa.com), is designed to be a safe and friendly online place where registered users may search, communicate and share Content and information with one another and publicly, and is intended for social uses only. In addition, oaxusa.com provides two commercial platforms through Classified and General advertising. The policies of both services may be found here: Advertising Policy.


2. Acceptance of Terms

2.1 The Service is offered subject to acceptance of all of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms of Use, including the Privacy Policy available at http://www.oaxusa.com/privacy, and all other operating rules, policies, and procedures that may be published on the Site by the Company, which are incorporated by reference. These Terms of Use apply to every user of the Service. In addition, some services offered through the Service may be subject to additional terms and conditions adopted by the Company. Your use of those services is subject to those additional terms and conditions, which are incorporated into these Terms of Use by this reference.

2.2 The Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms of Use by posting the updated terms on the Site. It is your responsibility to check the Terms of Use periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of any changes to the Terms of Use constitutes acceptance of those changes. The Company reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue the Service (including, but not limited to, the availability of any feature, database, or Content) at any time for any reason.

You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are at least 13 years old and of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. The Company reserves the right to ask for proof of age from you and your account may be suspended until satisfactory proof of age is provided. The Company may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time.
