Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming include:
if your posts or comments consist mainly of links and/or are shared without commentary;
if a large number of people have blocked you in response to high volumes of untargeted, unsolicited, or duplicative content or engagements from your account;
if a large number of spam complaints have been filed against you;
if you post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, comments to multiple users; or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts;
if you send large numbers of unsolicited posts, comments, replies or mentions;
if you add users to lists in a bulk or aggressive manner;
if you are randomly or aggressively engaging with users to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;
if you repeatedly post other people’s account information as your own (e.g., bio, posts, comments, profile, user URL, etc.);
if you post misleading, deceptive, or malicious links (e.g., affiliate links, links to malware/clickjacking pages, etc.); Accounts created to replace or mimic suspended accounts may be permanently suspended.
We may also remove accounts which Lafdr at its discretion attributes to entities known to violate the Lafdr Terms of Service.

Once we receive your transmission of information, Lafdr makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

13. DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT - RIGHT TO ERASURE
At all times you have an easy way to opt out of our service and delete your account as well as ALL of your Content Data, if you do not wish to continue using our services. You can find this in your “Settings” where it says “Delete My Account.” When you delete any of your Content Data, or delete your entire account, we delete your Content Data and remove your account from our production servers as soon as is technically possible based on our infrastructure design including a 30-day delay to ensure the deletion request was made by you, etc. The more data you delete, the longer will the deletion process take due to load balancing protections on our servers. After we’ve deleted your Content Data from our production servers, that same data may remain in our backups for a limited period of time (maximum of 7 months) due to protection regulations and our protocols for backup content protection. We secure your data that temporarily remains on our backups with additional security protocols. If we ever need to restore our backups into the main servers of Lafdr (in a rare instance, for example recovering from a natural disaster), if any of your Content Data you have previously deleted from our main servers is still on our backups in that moment, it will be deleted prior to or right after the backups are moved to the main servers. If you own a group and delete your account, the content you posted to that group will be deleted; however, the group(s) you own will not be deleted unless you are the only member of that group.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY AN ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY.
The laws of the state of South Dakota shall govern this Agreement without giving effect to conflict of laws principles. We agree that any dispute, claim, or disagreement between us shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration. Arbitration is a process in which persons with a dispute(s): (i) agree to submit their dispute(s) to a neutral third person (an “arbitrator”) for a decision; and (ii) waive their rights to file a lawsuit in court to resolve their dispute(s). Each party to the dispute(s) has an opportunity to present some evidence to the arbitrator. pre-arbitration discovery may be limited. Arbitration proceedings are private and less formal than court trials. The arbitrator will issue a final and binding decision resolving the dispute(s), which may be enforced as a court judgment. A court rarely overturns an arbitrator’s decision.
THEREFORE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
For purposes of this Arbitration Provision the words “dispute” and “disputes” are given the broadest possible meaning and include, without limitation (i) all claims, disputes, or controversies arising from or relating directly or indirectly to the signing of this Arbitration Provision, the validity and scope of this Arbitration Provision and any claim or attempt to set aside this Arbitration Provision; (ii) all federal or State law claims, disputes or controversies, arising from or relating directly or indirectly to this Agreement (including the Arbitration Provision), the information you gave us before entering into this Agreement, and/or any past agreement or agreements between you and us; (iii) all counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party claims; (iv) all common law claims, based upon contract, tort, fraud, or other intentional torts; (v) all claims based upon a violation of any state or federal statute or regulation; (vi) all claims asserted by us against you, including claims for money damages to collect any sum we claim you owe us; (vii) all claims asserted by you individually against us and/or any of our employees, agents, directors, officers, shareholders, managers, or affiliated entities (hereinafter collectively referred to as “related third parties”), including claims for money damages and/or equitable or injunctive relief; (viii) all claims asserted on your behalf by another person; and/or (ix) all claims asserted by you as a private attorney general, as a representative and member of a class of persons, or in any other representative capacity, against us and/or related third parties.
All disputes hereunder shall be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at the time of the dispute. The cost of the arbitration will be born equally by the parties. The arbitration award will be final and binding and may be enforced by any court in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Only disputes involving you and Lafdr may be addressed in the arbitration. This means that the arbitration may not address disputes involving other persons with disputes similar to the disputes between you and Lafdr.
The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any legal or equitable remedy or relief that a court could order or grant under this agreement. All statutes of limitations that apply to any dispute shall apply to any arbitration between us. The Arbitrator will issue a decision or award in writing, briefly stating the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law.
Binding Effect. This Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits you, your respective heirs, successors, and assigns. The Arbitration Provision is binding upon and benefits us, our successors and assigns, and related third parties. The Arbitration Provision continues in full force and effect, even if your obligations have been prepaid, paid, or discharged through bankruptcy. The Arbitration Provision survives any termination, amendment, expiration, or performance of any transaction between you and us and continues in full force and effect unless you and we otherwise agree in writing.
Severability. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining portions of the Arbitration Provision, unless the provision precluding the arbitrator from conducting a class arbitration as set forth above is deemed invalid or unenforceable, in which case this entire Arbitration Provision shall be deemed void.
18. OTHER PROVISIONS
Lafdr is provided to people by Lafdr, LLC, a company based in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Under no circumstances will Lafdr be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The failure of Lafdr to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent Lafdr from enforcing such right or provision in the future.
Lafdr reserves the right, in our sole discretion to modify these Terms, effective upon the date a revised Terms of Service is posted on the Site with notice to you, the User, of such modification. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your binding acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as they are amended, revised and posted on the Site periodically.
