You may not access or use the Service if you are under thirteen (13) years of age or if you are legally unable (under the applicable laws and regulations) to enter into this Agreement.

However, please note that this license to your User Submissions continues even if you stop using the Service, primarily because of the social nature of content shared through the Service - when you choose to send something in a non-private chat, others may choose to forward it, making your content part of a social conversation that can’t later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others.
