You agree that you will not, unless specifically permitted by EOR (i) copy, display or distribute any part of the Game and/or the Game World Sites (accessed or maintained in connection with the Game) in any medium, without EOR’s prior written consent, or (ii) alter or modify any part of the Game and/or the Game World Sites (accessed or maintained in connection with the Game) other than as may be reasonably necessary to use the Game and/or the Game World Sites for their intended purpose(s). You further agree that you will not use any automated devices, such as spiders, robots or data mining techniques to catalog, download, store or otherwise reproduce, store or distribute content available in the Game or on the Game World Sites, or to manipulate the Game and/or the Game World Sites in any manner not consistent with its or their intended purpose(s). You will take no action to interfere with, interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of the Game and/or the Game World Sites, or any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment. You will not use the Game and/or the Game World Sites in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any EOR server, or the network(s) connected to any EOR server, or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Game and/or the Game World Sites. You will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Game and/or the Game World Sites, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to any EOR server or to the Game or Game World Sites, through hacking, cracking, distribution of counterfeit software, password mining or any other means. You will not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available through the Game and/or the Game World Sites (accessed or maintained in connection with the Game). You will not reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any software accessed through the Game and/or the Game World Sites, including any proprietary communications protocol used by EOR. You are granted a limited, revocable, and nonexclusive right to create a hyperlink to the home page of the Game or locations on Game World Sites (maintained and/or operated in connection with the Game) so long as the link does not portray EOR, the Game, or any of the Game World Sites in a false, misleading, derogatory, or otherwise offensive manner or express or imply any endorsement by EOR of the site from which you are linking. Further, the site from which you are linking to the Game and/or Game World Site location(s) must not contain any obscene, defamatory, pornographic, offensive or illegal content.
When you are playing or otherwise using the Game, your play and/or your computer may be monitored to learn about your game-play behavior, player stats, purchasing, and for any other purpose. Your computer’s random access memory (RAM) may also be monitored for third party programs that interact with the Game and/or the Game World Sites. In the event any such third party program is detected, information may be communicated back to EOR, including the name of your account, your internet protocol (IP) address, details about the third party program detected, the nature of your in-Game behavior, and the time and date that the third party program was detected, along with the hardware specs and performance characteristics of your computer, with or without additional notice to you. If the use of such a third party program is detected, your access to the Game may be terminated with or without additional notice to you.
When using the Game and/or a Game World Site, you may accumulate in-Game virtual assets, including, without limitation, weapons, objects, artifacts, currency, items, equipment, and/or other value or status indicators (“Inventory”). All Inventory exists on servers only as data. You acknowledge and agree that such Inventory is accumulated as part of your account and therefore you shall have no ownership or other property interest in any Inventory. You further acknowledge and agree that EOR has the right, but not the obligation, to delete, alter, move, remove, or transfer any and all Inventory, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice to you, and with no liability of any kind to you. EOR does not provide or guarantee, and expressly disclaims any value, cash or otherwise, real or virtual, attributed to any data residing on servers operated by EOR, including without limitation the Inventory associated with your account.
If you have a valid, active account, you may participate in our virtual currency system, which is a redeemable point system used to obtain access to certain Inventory that can be used while playing the Game. EOR virtual currency may be offered at the sole discretion of EOR through the on-line in-Game store located on the Game Site. Virtual currency might also be provided to you by EOR as part of a promotion, or through other means, such as completing certain quests or achievements in the Game, or through EOR– or Game-sponsored contests or sweepstakes. You agree that you will be solely responsible for paying any applicable taxes related to the acquisition of, use of or access to virtual currency. Virtual currency is sold or issued in bundles and the price may vary depending on the amount you purchase and where you are purchasing. As EOR feels necessary, in its sole and absolute discretion, EOR may limit the total amount of virtual currency that may be purchased at any one time, and/or limit the total virtual currency that may be held in your account in the aggregate. Additionally, price and availability of virtual currency and/or Inventory are subject to change without notice.
You are solely responsible for verifying that the proper amount of virtual currency has been added to or deducted from your account during any given transaction, so please notify EOR immediately should you believe that a mistake has been made with respect to your virtual currency balance. EOR will investigate your claim, and in doing so, may request some additional information and/or documentation to verify your claim. EOR will let you know the results of the investigation; however you acknowledge and agree that EOR has sole and absolute discretion in determining whether or not your claim is valid, and if so, the appropriate remedy.
YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE VIRTUAL CURRENCY SYSTEM AND THE INVENTORY YOU ACQUIRE HAVE NO MONETARY VALUE AND EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY REQUIRED BY LAW CANNOT BE REDEEMED FOR CASH. ALL SALES AND PURCHASES ARE FINAL. REQUESTS FOR REFUNDS IN THE FORM OF IN-GAME CREDIT WILL BE CONSIDERED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS; HOWEVER, IT IS THE GENERAL POLICY OF EOR THAT ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE, BOTH FOR THE PURCHASE OF VIRTUAL CURRENCY OR FOR INVENTORY OBTAINED USING VIRTUAL CURRENCY. Some Inventory you obtain may have expiration dates while others do not, and each item of Inventory you obtain using virtual currency will be included in your account until the earlier of that item of Inventory’s expiration date, or your account’s expiration or termination date, or such date when EOR ceases to offer or support the Game.
The sale or transfer of items of Inventory or virtual currency between users may only be conducted via services approved of and provided by EOR, if any, and EOR may terminate any account that acts in contravention of this prohibition.
NOT WITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU SHALL HAVE NO OWNERSHIP OR OTHER PROPERTY INTEREST IN YOUR ACCOUNT, AND YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ALL RIGHTS IN AND TO THE ACCOUNT ARE AND SHALL FOREVER BE OWNED BY AND INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF EOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE NO CLAIM, RIGHT, TITLE, OWNERSHIP OR OTHER PROPRIETARY INTEREST IN THE GAME, GAME WORLD SITES, VIRTUAL CURRENCY, OR INVENTORY THAT YOU ACQUIRE, REGARDLESS OF THE CONSIDERATION OFFERED OR PAID IN EXCHANGE FOR ANY OF THE FOREGOING. FURTHERMORE, NEITHER EOR NOR ANY OF THE GAME WORLD SITES WILL BE LIABLE IN ANY MANNER FOR THE DESTRUCTION, DELETION, MODIFICATION, IMPAIRMENT, “HACKING,” OR ANY OTHER DAMAGE OR LOSS OF ANY KIND CAUSED TO THE GAME, THE GAME WORLD SITES, VIRTUAL CURRENCY, OR INVENTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE DELETION OF VIRTUAL CURRENCY AND/OR INVENTORY UPON THE TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF YOUR ACCOUNT, OR DISCONTINUATION OF THE GAME.
