Your use of our platform is governed by certain rules and are maintained and enforced exclusively by Foxie Ventures and must be adhered to by all players. It is your responsibility to know, understand and abide by these rules. The following rules are not meant to be exhaustive, and Foxie Ventures reserves the right to determine which conduct it considers to be outside the spirit of the Game and to take such disciplinary measures as it sees fit up to and including termination and deletion of the Account. Foxie Ventures reserves the right to modify these rules at any time.
Communicating on the Site, in a Game or through the Service with other users, whether by text, voice or any other method, is an integral part of the Game and the Service.
You understand that, by using the Chat features, you may be exposed to communications (including in written, verbal, electronic, digital, machine-readable or other form) that you might find objectionable. You understand that any content sent or appearing through a Chat feature is the sole responsibility of the individual(s) transmitting such content. This means that you, and not Foxie Ventures, are entirely responsible for all content that you transmit. Under no circumstances will Foxie Ventures or its third party providers be liable for any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damages of any kind incurred as a result of the access to, downloading, viewing, listening, use of or inability to use any content, including User Content.
When engaging in Chat, you may not:
(i) Transmit or post any content or language which, in the sole and absolute discretion of Foxie Ventures, is deemed to be offensive, including without limitation content or language that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, nor may you use a misspelling or an alternative spelling to circumvent the content and language restrictions listed above;
(ii) Carry out any action with a disruptive effect, such as intentionally causing the Chat screen to scroll faster than other users are able to read, or setting up macros with large amounts of text that, when used, can have a disruptive effect on the normal flow of Chat;
(iii) Disrupt the normal flow of dialogue in Chat or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users, including without limitation posting commercial solicitations and/or advertisements for goods and services available outside of the Game universe;
(iv) Sending repeated unsolicited or unwelcome messages to a single user or repeatedly posting similar messages in a Chat area, including without limitation continuous advertisements to sell goods or services;
(v) Communicate or post any user’s personal information in the Game, or on websites or forums related to the Game, except that a user may communicate his or her own personal information in a private message directed to a single user;
(vi) Harass, threaten, stalk, embarrass or cause distress, unwanted attention or discomfort to any user of the Game or the Site;
(vii) Impersonate any real person, including without limitation any “game master” or any other Foxie Ventures agent or employee, nor may you communicate in the Game, or on the Site or Service in any way designed to make others believe that your message constitutes a Server message or was otherwise posted by any Foxie Ventures agent or employee.
Without limiting the foregoing, we have sole discretion to remove any Member Content that violates this Agreement or that is otherwise objectionable in our sole discretion. Members are responsible for complying with all applicable federal and state laws for their content, including copyright and trademark laws. Members will respect copyright and trademark laws.
You warrant that you will not use our Platform to infringe on the intellectual property rights of others in any way. In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating Members whom we deem, in our sole discretion, to be infringers of others’ intellectual property rights.
Content Contributed by Users
Our platform allows users to create their own content (including interactive stories, maps and games), and to allow this content to be shared with other users through the platform. In this Agreement we refer to all of this Content provided by users as “User Content”.
Where a paid contractor or Employee agreement between us and the user is not in place, we do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content. However, we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to provide the Site and Services to users. In order for us to make the User Content you contribute available on the Platform, and to operate, market, monetize and promote the Service, we need the right to make use of such User Content in accordance with and subject to this Agreement. For example, if you write Stories, build minigames or maps, we need your license to display that User Content on the Services, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other users so that they can interact with that User Content.
Therefore, by contributing User Content to the Platform you automatically grant to us an irrevocable and perpetual (except as set forth in this Agreement), non-exclusive, transferable, fully-paid, royalty-free (except as expressly set forth in this Agreement), worldwide license, by ourselves or with others, to use, copy, distribute, monetize, publicly perform, publicly display, print, publish, republish, excerpt (in whole or in part), reformat, translate, modify, revise and incorporate into other works, that User Content and any works derived from that User Content, in any form of media or expression, in the manner in which the Service from time to time permits User Content to be used, in compliance with all applicable laws, and to license or permit others to do so. Our rights under this license remain in place even after termination of this Agreement or your account.
This license also grants us the right to sublicense that User Content to other users to permit their use of that User Content in the manner in which the Platform from time to time permits User Content to be used. We may from time to time change the manner in which User Content can be used by the Platform, and if we do so any license you have granted to us under this Section 3 shall automatically be extended to new uses permitted by the Platform, and any our rights under licenses previously granted to us for uses no longer permitted by the Platform shall continue as described in this Section.
If you contribute User Content to the Platform, it is your responsibility to check the Platform from time to time to review how we permit User Content to be used. We reserve the right to remove Content from the Site at any time, without notice, for any reason, or for no reason, in our sole discretion.
You represent and warrant to us that (a) you are the sole owner, author and copyright owner of User Content you contribute to the Site or you have written permission from the author, owner or copyright owner to make such User Content available to the Service as “User Content”, and (b) such User Content does not infringe upon any third party rights (including but not limited to any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, other intellectual property rights, moral rights, privacy rights or publicity rights); (c) such User Content complies with this Agreement and does not contain any defamatory, libelous or obscene material; (d) such User Content does not violate any applicable laws, regulations, or contain any false statements or misrepresentations; and (e) you have the written consent, release, and/or permission of each and every identifiable individual person, or the owner/author of any objects or work in such User Content to use the name or likeness of each and every such identifiable individual person, object or work, to enable inclusion and use of such User Content in the manner contemplated by the Service and this Agreement.
Use of Information
You grant Foxie Ventures a license to use the information and materials you post to our Platform. By posting, displaying, transmitting, performing, or otherwise distributing information or other content (“Member Content”) to our Platform, you are granting Foxie Ventures, its officers, directors, employees, agents, consultants, representatives, and affiliates, a license to use the Member Content in connection with the operation of the business of Foxie Ventures, its directors, employees, officers, affiliates, representatives, consultants, and agents, including, without limitation, a right to distribute, copy, transmit, publicly display, reproduce, translate, edit, and reformat Member Content. You understand and agree that you will not be compensated for any Member Content. By posting Member Content on our Platform, you warrant and represent that you own the rights to the Member Content or are authorized to post, display, distribute, perform, or transmit Member Content.
We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of this Agreement and to take any action we deem appropriate, including, but not limited to, reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any information necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, posted materials, IP addresses, and traffic information.
Linking to Our Platform
You may provide links to our Platform provided that (a) you do not remove or obscure any portion of our Platform by framing or otherwise, (b) your services do not engage in illegal or pornographic activities, and (c) you cease providing links to our Platform immediately upon our request.
Links to Other Websites
Our Platform may from time to time contain links to third-party websites. Inclusion of links for any website on our Platform does not mean that we endorse, guarantee, warrant, or recommend the services, information, content, and/or data of such third-party websites.
Foxie Ventures has no control over the legal documents and privacy practices of third-party websites; you access any third-party websites at your own risk. We recommend that you review the privacy notice and terms and conditions of those websites to fully understand what information is collected and how it is used.
You represent and warrant that if you are purchasing something from us, (i) any payment information you supply is true and complete, (ii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your bank or credit card company, (iii) you will pay the charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including any applicable taxes, and (iv) if your initial payment method is dishonored, you will still pay the incurred charges, including any surcharge we may incur due to the dishonored payment.
Purchases of virtual currency and/or virtual goods are non-refundable.
You are solely responsible for verifying that the proper amount of virtual currency and/or virtual goods has been added to or deducted from your account during any given transaction. You are responsible for notifying Foxie Ventures immediately if you believe that a mistake has been made with respect to your virtual currency and/or virtual goods. Foxie Ventures, in its sole discretion, may require additional information and/or documentation to verify your claim.
You acknowledge that the virtual currency and/or virtual goods you acquire have no monetary value and cannot be redeemed for money, goods or other items of monetary value.
All fees associated with virtual items, if any, are payable in advance and are not refundable in whole or in part. You agree that Foxie Ventures is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive money back for virtual items when an account is closed, whether voluntarily or involuntarily. Additionally, as products or services (such as Game(s) or Virtual Items) that are downloadable are deemed used promptly upon completion of your purchase, no refunds will be made for such purchases.
Termination of Membership
Your membership with us is effective until terminated by you or us. Your rights under these Terms and Conditions will terminate without our notice if you fail to comply with any term of these Terms and Conditions. Upon termination, you will stop representing yourself as a registered Member. You must delete or destroy any information or content (including all copies) obtained from our Platform. Certain provisions of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, copyrights, indemnity, trademarks, limitation of liability, warranty, and jurisdictional issues will survive the termination of this Agreement.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us and our partners, agents, officers, directors, employees, subcontractors, successors, assigns, third-party suppliers of information and documents, attorneys, advertisers, product and service providers, and affiliates free from any liability, loss, claim, and expense, including reasonable attorney’s fees, related to your violation of this Agreement or use of our Platform.
Severability and Survival
Should any part of this Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion will be construed consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. To the extent that any Content is in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement will take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of such a provision, nor of the right to enforce such a provision. Our rights under this Agreement will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Changes to Our Terms and Conditions
We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time by giving you advance notice of the changes by email or in writing. We will also post these changes on our Platform. These changes will become effective 30 days after receipt of the notice. To avoid doubt, no unilateral amendment will retroactively change agreed dispute-resolution provisions of these Terms and Conditions, if any, including, for example, arbitration provisions for then-pending disputes unless the parties expressly agree otherwise. Your continued use of our Platform after any change to these Terms and Conditions and our notifying you will constitute your acceptance of such change. If you do not agree with the changes to these Terms and Conditions, you can choose to discontinue the use of our Platform.
Copyright © This terms and conditions is protected under United States and foreign copyrights. The copying, redistribution, use or publication by you, is strictly prohibited.
