DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND LIMITATIONS.
From time to time, at Paradox’s sole discretion, Paradox may provide you with support services related to the Software Product (“Support Services”). Paradox reserves the right to alter, suspend, and terminate the Support Services at any time and for any reason. You can contact Paradox for Support Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.paradoxplaza.com/support.
Any supplemental software, code, content, or media provided to you in the course of Support Services shall be considered part of the Software Product and subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA.
You shall not modify, sublicense, assign, or transfer the Software Product or any rights under this EULA, except as expressly provided in this EULA. Any attempt to otherwise sublicense, assign, or transfer any of the rights, duties, or obligations will be void.
Paradox shall have the right, at any time, without notice to the End User to: (1) unilaterally suspend or modify the Game process and the Game conditions; (2) modify or delete any information posted by End User on the Forum and chats relating to the Game, including statements and declarations; and (3) improve or modify the Game, or any of its part. As a consequence, End User can participate in the Game in its current version.
End User agrees to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of its account in the Game and passwords and to prevent unauthorized use of these by a third party. If End User has reason to believe that third parties have obtained such information or can obtain it, the End User shall immediately inform Paradox and change its data. Unauthorized access by any third parties to End User’s personal information, account and in-game currency account in the Game is strictly forbidden. End User agrees and acknowledges that he/she shall not sell, give, rent, lease, redistribute, sublicense or transfer the Licensed Application, its account, in-game currency account or personal information to any third parties.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Paradox shall have the right to collect End User’s personal and technical information, including but not limited to name, user ID, country of residence, language, email address, IP address, computer configuration and software usage, which is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services related to the Software Product. Paradox may use this information to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to End User. Such information shall not be sold or transferred to any third parties without the prior consent of End User.
“Additional services” means providing the user with additional, special in-game features for a fee under the conditions specified in this Agreement. Additional services are not a necessary condition for participation in the Game and are provided on End User’s request only. Additional services consist of the in-game currency that can be purchased by the End User in the game and the game values that can be provided only when the End User is in the game. As a condition to the use of additional services, End User acknowledges and agrees that:
No one under the age of 18 is permitted to purchase in-game currency. If it comes to Paradox’s attention that End User under the age of 18 has purchased some in-game currency, Paradox has the right to immediately cancel that End User’s account and the entire account balance will be deemed forfeited.
A maximum limit of ten thousand U.S. dollar (US$ 10,000) applies to in-game currency that can be purchased in total per week by one End User.
If End User does not enter the game by “logging in” to his/her account for a period of three hundred and sixty five (365) days, Paradox has the right to immediately cancel the End User’s account and the entire account balance and in-game currency will be deemed abandoned and forfeited.
Paradox does not perform the exchange of the in-game values obtained from the provided services, including the in-game currency, to cash or non-cash money.
The list and cost of additional services, and the methods and conditions of purchasing the in-game currency are published by Paradox in the Game. For policies and procedures of the payment systems used to purchase the in-game currency, the End User shall contact the legal holders of such payment systems. Paradox does not make any explanations to the End User regarding the rules and procedures of such payment systems, and also does not make any money compensations to End User that performed funds transfer operations to purchase the in-game currency using the payment systems, if such payments were to failed and as the result the money was not received by Paradox. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the End User is obliged to keep documents proving the payment of additional services for the whole time period the End User stays in the game, and, if such documents are requested by Paradox, the End User shall provide them.
If you choose to use additional services, you shall be obliged to indicate in the information file the following data: first name, surname, date of birth and other information that will allow Paradox if necessary to identify the actual person with the User account in the Game. End Users shall be solely responsible for the accuracy, completeness, reliability, and correctness of their personal data.
If Paradox has reason to think that the End User performs illegal activities or fraud related to payments of additional services in the Game, Paradox has the right to send relevant information to law enforcement bodies to investigate these facts.
If Paradox has reason to believe or suspects that the End User is exploiting any defects in the Game or is maliciously using any third party software to increase his/her amount of in-game currency or gain any advantage in the Game, or if Paradox has reason to believe that such increase of in-game currency originates from a flaw in the system, Paradox has the right to immediately delete that End User’s account and the entire account balance shall be deemed forfeited.
If End User is prohibited from receiving on-line game services by the legislation of their country or in case of any other legal restrictions, including age restrictions, End User shall not be allowed to use the Game or individual services in the Game. In this case End User shall be solely responsible for the use of the Game on the territory of their country in accordance with local laws.
Money, paid by End User for an additional service, is not subject to return by Paradox and Paradox shall not be liable for the loss of the End User’s in-game values.
End User agrees, understands and accepts that this game is not a gambling or cash game, contest or betting and that purchase of additional services is End User’s own will and desire and is not necessary or mandatory to participate in the game and the game process.
