Maxthon may need your permission to do things you ask us to do with your cloud content, for example, hosting your files, or sharing them at your request through our "sharing" feature. This includes product features visible to you, the end user. For example: displaying image filenames. It also includes design choices made to technically administer our Services. For example: how the cloud services backup and store your cloud contents. Through your use of the Services you give Maxthon permission to provide the Services. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services, for example Fuhu, which is a partner of Maxthon and operates a sister product powered by cloud services named V-Drive. Another example is Amazon, who provides Maxthon with hosted storage space to provide some of the Services.
Maxthon forums are public venues of comment and information sharing. Through your use you acknowledge that Maxthon has no obligation to monitor any information on the Services.

Some use of our Service requires you to download a client software package ("Software"). Maxthon hereby grants you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. Your license to use the Software is automatically revoked if you violate these Terms in a manner that implicates our intellectual property rights. We hereby reserve all rights not expressly granted in these Terms. You must not reverse engineer or decompile the Software, nor attempt to do so, nor assist anyone else to do so. Our Services may update the Software on your device automatically when a new version is available.
You can stop using our Services any time. We reserve the right to suspend or end the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Services in any way that would cause us legal liability or disrupt other's use of the Services. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance and help you retrieve data, though there may be some cases (for example, repeatedly or flagrantly violating these Terms, a court order, or danger to other users) where that is not possible.
