Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify these Terms at any time. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or App or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them, because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site or App, or otherwise communicate them to you, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services evolve over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services at any time and without notice.

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, the Company grants you a limited nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable license to download and install a copy of the App on a mobile device and to run such copy of the App solely for your own personal, noncommercial purposes. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms, you may not: (a) copy, modify, or create derivative works based on the App; (b) distribute, transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, or rent the App to any third party; (c ) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the App; or (d) make the functionality of the App available to multiple users through any means.

Content includes without limitation User Content. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, the Company grants you a personal, noncommercial, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to download, view, display, and use the Content solely in connection with your permitted use of the Services.
We do not claim any ownership rights in any User Content, and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Content. Subject to the foregoing, the Company exclusively owns all right, title, and interest in and to the Services and Content, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services and Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries.

You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content, or you have all rights that are necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Services, nor any use of your User Content by the Company on or through the Services will infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation. We may reject any submissions in which the Company believes, in its sole discretion, that the User Content is inappropriate or violates these Terms. We further reserve the right to remove any User Content from the Services at any time and without notice and for any reason.
The App permits Account holders to obtain and trade virtual items (“Trading Items”) during gameplay. Unlike Virtual Money and Virtual Goods (see below), Trading Items are obtained at no additional charge during gameplay. Trading Items are a category of Content, and the Company grants you a limited, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use such Trading Items in conjunction with your personal, noncommercial use of the Services. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights in or to Trading Items and that Trading Items do not have monetary value. Trading Items may be traded with other Account holders for other Trading Items, but Trading Items can never be sold, transferred, or exchanged for “real” goods, “real” money, or “real” services, or any other compensation or consideration from us or anyone else.
You also agree that you will only obtain Trading Items from other Account holders and through means provided by us, and not from or through any third-party platform, exchange, broker, or other mechanism, unless expressly authorized. We may cancel any Trading Items sold, transferred, or exchanged in violation of these Terms. Any such sale, transfer, or exchange (or attempt to do so) is prohibited and may result in the termination of your Account. As set forth below, all Trading Items and other Content are provided “as is,” without any warranty.
Virtual Money and Virtual Goods
The App permits the purchase of virtual currency (“Virtual Money”) and use of that Virtual Money to purchase virtual items or services that we expressly make available for use in the App (“Virtual Goods”). The purchase of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods is limited to Account holders who are either (a) 18 years of age or older; or (b) under the age of 18 and have the consent of a Parent to make the purchase. Parents of children under the age of 18 can consult the iOS or Google Play settings for their App to restrict in-App purchases, but should also monitor their children’s Accounts for unexpected activity, including the purchase of Virtual Money or Virtual Goods.
Purchases of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods
Virtual Money is a category of Content, so the purchase of Virtual Money grants you only a limited, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use such Virtual Money to access and purchase Virtual Goods in conjunction with your personal, noncommercial use of the Services. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights in or to the Virtual Money, Virtual Goods, or other Content; any balance of Virtual Goods or Virtual Money does not reflect any stored value. You agree that Virtual Money and Virtual Goods have no monetary value and do not constitute actual currency or property of any type. Virtual Money may be redeemed only for Virtual Goods and can never be sold, transferred, or exchanged for “real” money, “real” goods, or “real” services from us or anyone else. You also agree that you will only obtain Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods from us and through means provided by us, and not from any third-party platform, exchange, broker, or other mechanism, unless expressly authorized. Once you acquire a license to Virtual Money or Virtual Goods, you may not trade or transfer the Virtual Money or Virtual Goods to another individual or account, unless such functionality is provided to you by us by way of a feature or service, whether inside the App or through our other Services (e.g., the Site). We may cancel any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods sold, transferred, or exchanged in violation of these Terms. Any such sale, transfer, or exchange (or attempt to do so) is prohibited and may result in the termination of your Account.
During the term of your license to your Virtual Money, you have the right to redeem your Virtual Money for selected Virtual Goods. If you are the Parent and you are accepting these Terms on behalf of your child, you accept and acknowledge that your child has your consent to exercise this right independently. Pricing and availability of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right at any time to change and update our pricing and inventory of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods. As set forth below, all Virtual Money, Virtual Goods, and other Content is provided “as is,” without any warranty. You agree that all sales by us to you of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods are final and that we will not permit exchanges or refunds for any unused Virtual Money or Virtual Goods once the transaction has been made.
Purchases by End Users Outside the U.S.
Virtual Money and Virtual Goods may only be purchased and held by legal residents of countries where access to and use of the Services are permitted. If you live in the European Union, you have certain rights to withdraw from online purchases. However, please note that once you download Virtual Money from us, your right of withdrawal ends. You agree that (a) purchase of Virtual Money involves immediate download of such Content; and (b) you lose your right of withdrawal once your purchase is complete. If you live in the European Union, we will provide you with a VAT invoice when we are required to do so by law. You agree that these invoices may be electronic in format. We reserve the right to control, regulate, change, or remove any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods without any liability to you.
Effect of Termination on Trading Items, Virtual Money, and Virtual Goods
We may cancel, suspend, or terminate your Account and your access to your Trading Items, Virtual Money, Virtual Goods, the Content, or the Services, in our sole discretion and without prior notice, including if (a) your Account is inactive (i.e., not used or logged into) for three months; (b) you fail to comply with these Terms; (c) we suspect fraud or misuse by you of Trading Items, Virtual Money, Virtual Goods, or other Content; (d) we suspect any other unlawful activity associated with your Account; or (e) we are acting to protect the Services, our systems, the App, any of our users, or the reputation of the Company. We have no obligation or responsibility to, and will not reimburse or refund, you for any Trading Items, Virtual Money, or Virtual Goods lost due to such cancellation, suspension, or termination. You acknowledge that the Company is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused Virtual Money and Virtual Goods when your Account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary or involuntary.
We have the right to offer, modify, eliminate, and/or terminate Trading Items, Virtual Money, Virtual Goods, the Content, and/or the Services, or any portion thereof, at any time, without notice or liability to you. If we discontinue the use of Virtual Money or Virtual Goods, we will provide at least 30 days’ advance notice to you by posting a notice on the Site or App or through other communications.

Disclaimer of Warranties
Your use of the App and Services are at your own risk. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Services and Content are provided “as is,” without warranty of any kind. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company explicitly disclaims any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quiet enjoyment, or non-infringement, and any warranties arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade.
We make no warranty that the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error -free basis, and we make no warranty regarding the quality, accuracy, timeliness, truthfulness, completeness, or reliability of any Content.
You assume all risks relating to your online or offline communications and interactions with other users of the Services and with other persons with whom you communicated or interact as a result of your use of the Services. You understand that we do not screen or inquire into the background of any users of the Services. We make no representations or warranties as to the conduct of users of the services. You agree to take reasonable precautions in all communications and interactions with other users of the Services and with other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the Services, particularly if you decide to meet offline or in person.

In no event will the total liability of the Company arising out of or in connection with these terms or from the use of or inability to use the Services or Content exceed one hundred dollars ($100). The exclusions and limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between the Company and you.
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to its conflict of laws provisions.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and the Company agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights (an “IP Protection Action”). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide the Company with written notice of your desire to do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org within ten (10) days following the date you first accept these Terms (such notice, an “Arbitration Opt-out Notice”). If you don’t provide the Company with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the ten (10) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth above.
The jurisdiction and venue for any litigation as described above will be at the sole determination of the Company. In addition, any arbitration to be administered as described above will have the arbitrator or arbitrators selected at the sole determination of the Company.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Changes to Terms or Services” section above, if the Company changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice by email to email@example.com) within 10 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of the Company’s communication to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and the Company in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between the Company and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between the Company and you regarding the Services and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the “Dispute Resolution” section above or by a court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without the Company’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms without such consent will be null. We may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by the Company under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (a) via email, or (b) by posting to the Services. For notices made by email, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
The Company’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of the Company. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services, please contact the Company at firstname.lastname@example.org.
