I looove Neopets and I'm trying to make a Neopets wiki. Of course, Neopets is owned by Viacom and I REALLY don't wanna go blow to blow with their lawyers. Can someone please translate this part from the Neopets terms and use to make sure what I'm doing falls under fair use?

I really wanna make the ultimate Neopets wiki but I wanna Legally do it. If I can't do it, can wikia contact them and ask them if it's ok?
(Obviously, I'm scared to e-mail them myself, because I'm pretty sure they'd reject a black 13 year old kid in Los Angeles who likes neopets)
