You and any Applications that you may build, distribute, or otherwise create may make network calls or requests to the Services, or may receive phone calls via the Service, at any time that the Services are available. You may use the Services to execute Applications owned or lawfully obtained by you. You are solely responsible for your Applications, including any data, text, images or content contained therein.
