DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
MafiaMatrix provides users with free access to various communication tools, forums, interactions with other users, personalised content and information only allowed to registered users through its network which may be accessed through any various medium or device now known or hereafter developed (future reference to these facilities will be stated as the "Service"). You understand that the Service may include advertisements and that these advertisements are necessary for MafiaMatrix to provide the Service. You also understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from MafiaMatrix, such as service announcements, administrative messages and email-based newsletters, and that these communications are considered part of MafiaMatrix membership and you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the TOS. You understand that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that MafiaMatrix assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalisation settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service and that may involve third-party fees (such as internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including those fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

You understand that by using the Service, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable.
