ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS OF USE.

This Agree­ment is an elec­tronic agree­ment that sets out the legally bind­ing terms of your use of the Game and, to the extent they are accessed or uti­lized in con­nec­tion with the Game, the Game World Sites. This Agree­ment includes EOR’s poli­cies and notices about use of its Game and the Game World Sites, includ­ing our Load­out pri­vacy pol­icy found at www.loadout.com/privacy which poli­cies are incor­po­rated into these Terms by ref­er­ence. Each time you use the Game and/or access any of the Game World Sites in con­nec­tion with the Game, you sig­nify that you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to the Terms, you must dis­con­tinue using the Game and the Game World Sites in con­nec­tion with the Game. By using the Game and/or the Game World Sites in con­nec­tion with the Game, you rep­re­sent and war­rant that you have the full legal right, author­ity and capac­ity to enter into this Agree­ment and to abide by its Terms.

When you access the Game or ele­ments of the Game, or par­tic­i­pate in Game-related activ­i­ties through Game World Sites other than the Game Site, you may be sub­ject to terms of use and pri­vacy poli­cies set by the applic­a­ble Game World Site.  EOR has no con­trol over Game World Sites other than the Game Site.  The Terms con­tained in this Agree­ment, and EOR’s pri­vacy pol­icy, will not be con­trol­ling in con­nec­tion with your use of Game World Sites other than the Game Site.

Updates to Terms. EOR reserves the right to update or change these Terms at any time by post­ing the most cur­rent ver­sion of the Terms on the Game Site with a new Effec­tive Date shown. All such changes in the Terms shall be effec­tive from the Effec­tive Date. Your con­tin­ued use of the Game and/or the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game) after we post any changes to the Terms sig­ni­fies your agree­ment to any such changes. If you do not agree to these updated or changed Terms, you must dis­con­tinue using the Game and the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game). Note that spe­cial terms or rules may apply to some fea­tures and/or ser­vices offered in the Game or on the Game World Sites, such as rules for par­tic­u­lar pro­mo­tions, appli­ca­tions, or other fea­tures or activ­i­ties.  Any such terms are in addi­tion to these Terms, and in the event of a con­flict, pre­vail over these Terms.

Elec­tronic Form/Communications. By access­ing the Game and/or the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game), you con­sent to hav­ing this Agree­ment pro­vided to you in elec­tronic form and receiv­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions from us elec­tron­i­cally. We will com­mu­ni­cate with you by e-mail or by post­ing notices on the Game Site. You agree that all agree­ments, notices, dis­clo­sures, and other com­mu­ni­ca­tions we pro­vide to you elec­tron­i­cally sat­isfy any legal require­ments that such com­mu­ni­ca­tions be in writing.

USE OF THE GAME

Reg­is­tra­tion. While some ele­ments of the Game and/or loca­tions on the Game World Sites hav­ing to do with the Game may be gen­er­ally accessed by the pub­lic, cer­tain aspects of the Game and/or aspects or loca­tions on the Game World Sites (e.g. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices, described below) as well as par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Game requires you to cre­ate an Account by pro­vid­ing EOR, the Steam Site, or any reg­is­tra­tion site autho­rized by EOR (as applic­a­ble) with cer­tain per­sonal infor­ma­tion. You agree that you will sup­ply accu­rate and com­plete infor­ma­tion, and that you will update that infor­ma­tion promptly after it changes. Any infor­ma­tion pro­vided at the Steam Site or any third party reg­is­tra­tion site that is retained by the applic­a­ble third party will be main­tained in accor­dance with the Steam Site’s or the applic­a­ble third party site’s pri­vacy pol­icy.  All of the infor­ma­tion pro­vided to EOR, when reg­is­ter­ing and there­after, will be gov­erned by the terms and con­di­tions of this Agree­ment and EOR’s Load­out Pri­vacy Pol­icy (found at www.loadout.com/privacy). The infor­ma­tion will be used by EOR for a vari­ety of inter­nal pur­poses, includ­ing with­out lim­i­ta­tion, to main­tain your account, to pro­vide that your account is unique, to deal with secu­rity, debug­ging and tech­ni­cal sup­port issues, and for pos­si­ble payment-related issues. You acknowl­edge that, if any infor­ma­tion pro­vided by you is untrue, inac­cu­rate, not cur­rent or incom­plete, EOR may ter­mi­nate this Agree­ment, your account, and/or your access to and/or use of the Game and/or Game-related loca­tions or con­tent on the Game World Sites. Please note that in uti­liz­ing cer­tain areas of the Game World Sites (e.g. pur­chas­ing mer­chan­dise) or the Game (e.g. pur­chas­ing assets), you will be requested to pro­vide addi­tional infor­ma­tion in order to com­plete a pur­chase, such as your name, address and credit card infor­ma­tion. This infor­ma­tion is pro­vided solely to a third party pay­ment provider, and none of this infor­ma­tion is col­lected or stored by EOR.

Upon reg­is­tra­tion you will be asked to choose a pass­word and a user/account name. You may not use a user/account name that is con­sid­ered by EOR to be vul­gar or oth­er­wise offen­sive, infringes any trade­mark or other pro­pri­etary rights of oth­ers, is already in use, or is used in any way that vio­lates the Terms. You will only cre­ate one unique pro­file. EOR reserves the right to deny, in its sole dis­cre­tion, any user access to the Game and the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game) with­out notice, for any or no reason.

Secu­rity of User­name and Pass­word. You are entirely respon­si­ble for main­tain­ing the con­fi­den­tial­ity of your pass­word and account. Fur­ther­more, you are entirely respon­si­ble for any and all activ­i­ties that occur under your account. You agree to notify EOR imme­di­ately of any unau­tho­rized use or theft of your account or any other breach of secu­rity (and to pro­vide prop­erly doc­u­mented evi­dence as rea­son­ably requested by EOR). We will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of some­one else using your pass­word or account, either with or with­out your knowl­edge. How­ever, you will be liable for losses incurred by EOR or another party due to some­one else using your account or pass­word. You may not use any­one else’s account at any time.

Ter­mi­na­tion. EOR can sus­pend or ter­mi­nate your access to the Game and/or the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game), in whole or in part, at any time, imme­di­ately and with­out notice.  All terms that by their nature may sur­vive ter­mi­na­tion of this Agree­ment shall be deemed to sur­vive such termination.

USE OF THE GAME AND THE GAME WORLD SITES.

Per­sonal Use. The Game and the Game World Sites are intended for your per­sonal, non­com­mer­cial use in accor­dance with these Terms. 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.

USER SUBMISSIONS.

User Con­tent. The Game may con­tain the abil­ity to cre­ate, mod­ify, design, embell­ish, or oth­er­wise alter objects or other ele­ments in the Game (“Asset Vari­a­tions”).  You agree to use Asset Vari­a­tions only to cus­tomize your own play­ing expe­ri­ence within the Game.  The Game may also con­tain the abil­ity to send mes­sages and other com­mu­ni­ca­tions to other play­ers or to post mes­sages to pub­lic forums (the “Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices”). You agree to use the Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices only to post, send and receive mes­sages and mate­r­ial that are proper and, when applic­a­ble, related to the Game (Asset Vari­a­tions and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices are, jointly and sev­er­ally, “User Content”).

Removal. EOR has no oblig­a­tion to mon­i­tor the User Con­tent. How­ever, EOR reserves the right to review and remove any User Con­tent at any time, with­out notice, for any rea­son and in its sole dis­cre­tion. EOR specif­i­cally dis­claims any lia­bil­ity with regard to the User Con­tent. If you encounter some­thing you find objec­tion­able and in vio­la­tion of these Terms, you can report it to help@loadout.com.

License and War­ranties. By sub­mit­ting User Con­tent to the Game and/or the Game World Sites, you grant to EOR, and its suc­ces­sors in busi­ness and assigns, employ­ees, licensees, agents, rep­re­sen­ta­tives and other autho­rized users of the Game, the Game World Sites, Asset Vari­a­tions, and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices, a per­pet­ual, irrev­o­ca­ble, world­wide, exclusive royalty-free license to repro­duce, dis­trib­ute, per­form, mod­ify, edit, dis­play, adapt, cre­ate deriv­a­tive works from, and mar­ket and pro­mote the User Con­tent, for any com­mer­cial or non-commercial pur­poses, and in any medium now exist­ing or here­inafter devel­oped, and to use your user name and any per­sonal infor­ma­tion you sub­mit with or con­tained within the User Con­tent, with­out your prior approval or the pay­ment of any com­pen­sa­tion and with­out notice. You also grant each user of the Game and the Game World Sites a non-exclusive license to access your User Con­tent as per­mit­ted through the func­tion­al­ity of the Game and the Game World Sites (as applic­a­ble) and under these Terms. To the extent per­mit­ted by applic­a­ble laws, you hereby waive any moral rights and rental rights you may have in the User Con­tent you submit.

No Con­fi­den­tial­ity. You acknowl­edge and agree that your com­mu­ni­ca­tions via the Game, Communication Services (whether or not part of the Game), and/or the Game World Sites are pub­lic and not pri­vate com­mu­ni­ca­tions and EOR is not respon­si­ble for infor­ma­tion that you choose to com­mu­ni­cate to other users, or for the actions of other users.  All User Con­tent must com­ply with User Require­ments as follows.

DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (“DMCA”) NOTICE 

EOR has reg­is­tered an agent with the United States Copy­right Office in accor­dance with the terms of the Dig­i­tal Mil­len­nium Copy­right Act (the “Act”) and avails itself of the pro­tec­tions under the Act. EOR has adopted and imple­mented a pol­icy for address­ing claims of copy­right infringe­ment, and for the ter­mi­na­tion, in appro­pri­ate cir­cum­stances as deter­mined by EOR in its sole dis­cre­tion, of users who are infringers of copy­right. Fur­ther we reserve the right to remove any User Con­tent which allegedly infringes another person’s copy­right. We are under no oblig­a­tion to, and do not, scan con­tent posted for any vio­la­tions of third party rights; how­ever, we respect the copy­right inter­ests of oth­ers and it is our pol­icy not to per­mit mate­ri­als known or believed by us to infringe another party’s copy­right to remain in the Game or on the Game World Sites. If you believe any mate­ri­als found in the Game and/or on the Game World Sites (in con­nec­tion with the Game) infringe a copy­right, you should pro­vide us with writ­ten notice that at a min­i­mum contains:

  • A phys­i­cal or elec­tronic sig­na­ture of a per­son autho­rized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclu­sive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the copy­righted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if mul­ti­ple copy­righted works are cov­ered by a sin­gle noti­fi­ca­tion, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive list of such works;
  • Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the mate­r­ial that is claimed to be infring­ing or to be the sub­ject of infring­ing activ­ity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be dis­abled, and infor­ma­tion rea­son­ably suf­fi­cient to per­mit us to locate the material;
  • Infor­ma­tion rea­son­ably suf­fi­cient to per­mit us to con­tact the com­plain­ing party, such as an address, tele­phone num­ber, and, if avail­able, an elec­tronic mail address at which the com­plain­ing party may be contacted;
  • A state­ment that the com­plain­ing party has a good faith belief that use of the mate­r­ial in the man­ner com­plained of is not autho­rized by the copy­right owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A state­ment that the infor­ma­tion in the noti­fi­ca­tion is accu­rate, and under penalty of per­jury, that the com­plain­ing party is autho­rized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclu­sive right that is allegedly infringed.

No Third Party Ben­e­fi­cia­ries. You agree that, except as oth­er­wise expressly pro­vided in this Agree­ment, there shall be no third party ben­e­fi­cia­ries to this Agreement.

Gov­ern­ing Law/Disputes. In the event a claim is brought against EOR, these Terms shall be gov­erned by and con­strued in accor­dance with the laws of the State of Texas, United States of Amer­ica, with­out appli­ca­tion of con­flict of laws rules.  Exclu­sive juris­dic­tion and venue in con­nec­tion with any such dis­pute (“Dis­pute”) shall lie exclu­sively in the state or fed­eral courts located in Travis County, Texas.

Mis­cel­la­neous. These Terms and the poli­cies incor­po­rated herein, are the entire agree­ment between you and EOR. They super­sede any and all prior or con­tem­po­ra­ne­ous agree­ments between you and EOR relat­ing to your use of the Game and/or the Game World Sites. EOR may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time. If any part of these Terms is deter­mined to be invalid or unen­force­able, it will not impact any other pro­vi­sion of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect. Head­ings in the Terms are for con­ve­nience of ref­er­ence only and shall not affect the inter­pre­ta­tion or con­struc­tion of this agree­ment. The fail­ure of EOR to par­tially or fully exer­cise any rights or the waiver of EOR of any breach of these Terms by you, shall not pre­vent a sub­se­quent exer­cise of such right by EOR or be deemed a waiver by EOR of any sub­se­quent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and reme­dies of EOR under these Terms and any other applic­a­ble agree­ment between you and EOR shall be cumu­la­tive, and the exer­cise of any such right or rem­edy shall not limit EOR’s right to exer­cise any other right or remedy.
