Default Motorola "Terms of Service" App

I'll appologise beforehand as i'm pretty sure this isn't where this post should go, but i csn't find a better place for it. Anyways I rooted my Motorola Motoluxe (XT615) and i've now started on removing all the yucky, yucky bloatware. So i've came across an app labelled "Terms of Service" (com.motorola.setup.tos) and i was wondering if anyone knows if it is safe to remove?

Sent from my XT615 using xda app-developers app

Probably no.
I've just removed it on a rooted Defy Mini and now I'm stuck in an endless loop of "died unexpectedly [force close]" dialogs
I have the .apk backed up and will manage to restore it - which would be easier if I had some free storage...

Update: the dialogs started popping up during an attempt to remove it using Root Uninstaller.
It seems it didn't complete the uninstall - the dialogs disappeared after I did in adb shell:

Code:
$ su
# pm uninstall com.motorola.setup.tos
Success
Now the phone seems to work ok (including after reboot).
In other words, you might try it but make sure USB debugging is on, and back up the app...
