2. Our obligations to you.

2.1 We will provide you with the service.

2.2 We will observe all relevant UK data protection legislation in relation to the data you provide to us on registration and will only use it for authorised purposes. We will provide the service to you with reasonable care and skill and will use our reasonable endeavours to maintain continuity of service. However, we cannot guarantee that the service will be continuous or error free. We do not accept liability for any special loss or any indirect or consequential loss of any nature (including without limitation any economic loss or other loss of business, production, revenue, profit, goodwill or anticipated savings), whether arising in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise, and whether or not the possibility of such loss arising has been brought to our attention.

3. Disclaimer

You use the service at your own risk. The service is provided as is and without warranties of any kind either expressed or implied.

4.1 The service may include a virtual in-game currency ("Virtual Currency") including, but not limited to coins, cash, or points, that may be purchased from us for "real world" money if you are a legal adult in your country of residence. The service may also include virtual, in-game digital items ("Virtual Goods") that may be purchased from us or "real world" money or for Virtual Currency. Regardless of the words used, Virtual Currency and Virtual Goods may never be redeemed for "real world" money, goods or other items of monetary value from us or any other party. YOU MUST BE AGED 18 OR OLDER TO MAKE PAYMENTS TO US.

4.4 Transfer of Virtual Currencies and Virtual Goods are strictly prohibited except where explicitly authorised within the service. Outside of the game, you may not buy or sell any Virtual Currency or Virtual Goods for "real world" money or otherwise exchange items for value. Any attempt to do so is in violation of these Terms and may result in legal action.

4.5 You agree that all sales of Virtual Goods and Currencies are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion. All Virtual Goods and Currencies are forfeited if your account is terminated or suspended for any reason in our sole and absolute discretion, or if we discontinue providing the service.

If your account is terminated or suspended by us, we also have the right to terminate or suspend any of your other accounts.

6. General

6.1 We reserve the right at any time, in our sole discretion, to make any changes to these Terms. Any changes will be notified to you by e-mail or by publishing the revised Terms on this site. By continuing to use the service you agree to be bound by such changes.

6.2 The information provided in this application is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.

6.3 Nothing in these Terms is to be interpreted as an attempt to limit or exclude our liability for any personal injury resulting from our negligence, and if you are a consumer, nothing we say affects your statutory rights.

6.4 These Terms are to be interpreted in accordance with English law and, in the event of any dispute, you and we irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
