In order to access some of the services, you may be required to register an account (an “Account”) by completing an electronic registration form, which requests certain information and data (“Registration Data”), or by linking our Service to your existing account on a social networking service or on a mobile device. By registering, you agree that all information provided in the Registration Data is true and accurate and that you will maintain and update this information as required in order to keep it current, complete, and accurate.

During the Account creation process, you may be required to select a password (“Login Information”). You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Login Information, and you will be responsible for all uses of the Login Information, including purchases, whether or not authorized by you. You are responsible for anything that happens through your Account.

  • You shall not create an Account or access the Service if you are under the age of 13.
  • You shall monitor your Account to restrict use by minors, and you will deny access to children under the age of 13.

Terms and Conditions of Sale

1. Virtual Items

You understand that while at times you may “earn” “buy” or “purchase” (a) virtual currency, including but not limited to virtual coins, cash, tokens, or points, all for use in the Services; or (b) virtual in-game items (together with virtual currency, “Virtual Items”); these real world terms are only being used as shorthand. You do not in fact “own” the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Rather, you may purchase a limited license to use the Service, including software programs that occasionally manifest themselves as these items. Any “virtual currency” balance shown in your Account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license.

Second Gear Games owns, has licensed, or otherwise has rights to use all of the content that appears in the Service. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, you agree that you have no right or title in or to any content that appears in the Service, including without limitation the Virtual Items appearing or originating in a game, whether “earned” in a game or “purchased” from Second Gear Games, or any other attributes associated with an Account or stored on the Service.

2. Purchases

In our Services you may purchase, with “real world” money as well as third-party virtual currency, a license to use Virtual Items. Purchases or redemptions of third party virtual currency to acquire a license to use Virtual Items are non-refundable. Purchases of software applications, related services and Virtual Items through third-party app stores and websites (“Stores”) are subject to the Terms of Sale policies of these Stores, including but not limited to order cancellation and refund policies. You agree to pay all applicable taxes and fees incurred by anyone using an Account registered to you. You acknowledge that Second Gear Games is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused Virtual Items when an Account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary or involuntary.

Third Party Sites and Services

Our Services may link you to other sites on the Internet or otherwise include references to information, documents, software, materials and/or services provided by other parties. These sites may contain information or material that some people may find inappropriate or offensive. These other sites and parties are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such sites, nor are we responsible for errors or omissions in any references to other parties or their products and services. The inclusion of such a link or reference is provided merely as a convenience and does not imply endorsement of, or association with, the site or party by us, or any warranty of any kind, either express or implied.

Responsibility for User Content

For purposes of these Terms of Use, “content” is defined as any information, data, communications, software, photos, video, graphics, music, sounds, and other material and services that can be viewed by users of our service. This includes message boards, chat, user profiles and other original content. By posting information in or otherwise using any communications service, chat room, message board, newsgroup, software library, or other interactive service that may be available to you on or through this service, you agree that you will not upload, share, post, or otherwise distribute or facilitate distribution of any content – including text, communications, software, images, sounds, data, or other information – that:

  • is unlawful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another’s privacy, tortious, contains explicit or graphic descriptions or accounts of sexual acts (including but not limited to sexual language of a violent or threatening nature directed at another individual or group of individuals), or otherwise violates our rules or policies
  • victimizes, harasses, degrades, or intimidates an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, or disability
  • infringes on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, right of publicity, or other proprietary right of any party
  • constitutes unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, junk or bulk email (also known as “spamming”), chain letters, any other form of unauthorized solicitation, or any form of lottery or gambling
  • contains software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs that are designed or intended to disrupt, damage, or limit the functioning of any software, hardware, or telecommunications equipment or to damage or obtain unauthorized access to any data or other information of any third party
  • impersonates any person or entity, including any of our employees or representatives

We neither endorse nor assume any liability for the contents of any material uploaded or submitted by third party users of the Service. We generally do not pre-screen, monitor, or edit the content posted by users of communications services, chat rooms, message boards, newsgroups, software libraries, or other interactive services that may be available on or through this site. However, we and our agents have the right at their sole discretion to remove any content that, in our judgment, does not comply with these Terms of Use and any other rules of user conduct for our site, or is otherwise harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. We are not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such content. You hereby consent to such removal and waive any claim against us arising out of such removal of content.

In addition, you may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.
