We will take into account the number of clearly unfounded notices or complaints you have submitted within a given time frame when making this decision and will notify you in advance if we take any action related to this.
ACTION WE MAY TAKE IN RELATION TO YOUR ACCOUNT OR CONTENT. Zedge reserves the right to remove any content on the Services, to close Accounts and terminate a User’s access to the Services at any time and at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, if such content or a User’s behavior does not comply with these Terms, for copyright infringement, violations of other intellectual property law or other rights of any third party, for violations of applicable law or regulations, or if otherwise deemed inappropriate or unacceptable to Zedge. If we remove or restrict access to your content, where required by applicable laws we will notify you and explain the reason for our decision. We will also notify the submitter of any report of the action we have taken against the content. Please see our Content Policy for more information.

Zedge may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in the interest of any business associated with the Services, so that a different organization is responsible for supplying the Services to you. We will tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms.
SEVERABILITY. If a provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable by a court or tribunal, the other provisions will still apply, and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible.
WAIVER. Zedge’s delay or failure to enforce a provision or a right set out in these Terms does not prevent us from doing so later.
