If you see something that puts any Beach Sweat employee, agent, or other users at risk, please report the same immediately to Beach Sweat and the appropriate authorities.

F. Usernames, email addresses, and other forms of identification used throughout the Platform are subject to the same rules established in Section H, herein above. Any username or other identifier which you as the user, have the ability to customize, must be appropriate and inoffensive.

You shall not use any automated program, tool or process (such as web crawlers, robots, bots spiders, and automated scripts) to access Beach Sweat or any server, network or system associated with Beach Sweat, or to extract, scrape, collect, harvest or gather Content or information from Beach Sweat.

T. You shall not use Beach Sweat’ name, logo or any related or similar names, logos, product and service names, designs, or slogans other than with our prior written consent to do so.
