Acceptance of Terms

These Terms of Service (sometimes referred to herein as this “Agreement” or simply as these "Terms") are a binding legal agreement between you (sometimes referred to herein as “you” or “yourself”) and Deck of Dice Gaming, LLC ("Deck of Dice" or “us” or “we”) and govern your access and/or use of our games, applications, software and websites, including any of our other products and services that directly reference and/or link to these Terms of Service (collectively, the “Service”).  Please read and review these Terms of Service, and our separate Privacy Policy, carefully and completely before accessing or using any part of the Service.  By accessing or otherwise using any part of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that you have read, understand and agree, and shall be deemed to have provided your consent, to be bound by all of the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms of Service and/or in any additional materials incorporated herein by reference (e.g., our Privacy Policy, legal notices, etc.), including, without limitation, disclaimers of warranties, limitations of liability, waivers of rights, and any applicable minimum age requirements.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions contained herein, then you are not authorized to access or use, and you must therefore not access or use, the Service.

Deck of Dice hereby reserves the right to amend or otherwise modify these Terms of Service at any time and from time to time, at our sole discretion and without prior notice.  It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Service on a regular basis so that you are aware of any changes and so that you become familiar with any and all such amendments or other modifications.  Accordingly, you agree to regularly check these Terms for any changes to Deck of Dice’s then-applicable Terms of Service that shall govern your use of the Service.  Upon the posting of any amended or otherwise modified terms or conditions on or by means of the Service, such amended and/or modified terms or conditions shall thereupon become effective immediately.  Your election to access and use the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content (as defined below) following the effective date of any amendment or other modification of these Terms of Service shall be deemed to indicate and confirm that you expressly agree and consent to any then-effective updates and/or other modifications of these Terms of Service.  If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms of Service, your only remedy is to immediately stop accessing and/or using the Service and to terminate the account(s) that you have created with the Service (each an “Account” and, collectively, the “Accounts”).

If you violate our Terms of Service, or any other applicable rules and/or policies, as adopted by Deck of Dice, at its sole discretion, your authorization to use the Service shall automatically terminate.  Furthermore, we may take action against you in connection with any such violation, at our sole discretion, including, without limitation, terminating your Account, or suspending or terminating your access to the Service, with or without prior notice to you.

Deck of Dice reserves the right to modify, discontinue or terminate the Service (or any part thereof) at any time, including, without limitation, by limiting or terminating certain features or functionalities that are offered as part of the Service and/or any of the then-current Deck of Dice Content, temporarily or permanently, without prior notice to you.  Deck of Dice shall have no obligation or liability whatsoever to you or to any third party due to any modification to or discontinuance of the Service (or any part thereof) or any suspension or termination of your access to and/or use of the Service, including, without limitation, any form of refund or other form of compensation as a result of any discontinuation of the Service (or any part thereof).

Please be advised that the Service and the Deck of Dice Content are intended for individuals who are at least 18 years of age (or older) and have been specifically designed and are intended for personal entertainment purposes only.  If you are under the age of 13, you are not authorized or otherwise permitted to access and use the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content.  Deck of Dice does not desire or intend to collect any personally identifiable information from any child who is under 13 years of age.  If you are over the age of 13, but are under 18 years of age, or if you lack the power and authority to enter into and be legally bound by this Agreement (e.g., if you are below the age of majority or otherwise considered a minor in the particular country in which you reside), then your parent or legal guardian must review and agree (on your behalf) with all of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms, and you hereby represent and warrant that your parent or legal guardian has provided his or her consent for you to access and use the Service and the Deck of Dice Content in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and as set forth in Deck of Dice’s separate Privacy Policy.  If you are at least 18 years of age (or have reached the age of majority in the particular country in which you reside), you represent and warrant that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by and to fully comply with all of the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms and any and all other applicable guidelines, codes of conduct, and/or policies that may be adopted by Deck of Dice, at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, our Privacy Policy.  If you are under 18 years of age (or otherwise lack the legal power and authority to enter into and to be legally bound by the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms) and your parent or legal guardian does not provide his or her required consent for you to access and use the Service, then you are not granted any License Rights by Deck of Dice and, accordingly, you are not authorized to access or use the Service and you must immediately cease and desist any further efforts to access and/or use the Service.

Account Information

You may have to register and create an Account through Deck of Dice before you are able to access and use the Service.  You may be obliged to register and create an Account directly with Deck of Dice, and/or create an Account by means of an applicable social networking service (in the event that you choose to access and use the Service by means of any such social networking service).  You must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself, and you must update such information immediately if any changes occur subsequent to such registration and/or the formation of any Account.  The required information may vary depending on the activity and may include, by way of example, your age, birth date, name, e-mail address, passwords, payment information, etc.  This information is stored and used solely in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  During the registration process of creating an Account, you may be required to select a username, password, security question(s) and answer(s), or to provide other information that will be used to identify you when you log-in to the Service (collectively, “Log-In Information”). 

Please be advised that you must not share or otherwise disseminate any information relating to your Account or Log-In Information, or allow any other person or entity to access or use your Account, or otherwise make yourself vulnerable to potential misuse of your Account.  Deck of Dice will not ask you to reveal your password and will not initiate contact with you asking for answers to your password security questions. 

You should notify Deck of Dice immediately if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other security breach regarding the Service.  This may include, but is not limited to, loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure of your Log-In Information.  Should any unauthorized use of your Account or Log-In Information occur, you should immediately modify your Log-In Information in order to better ensure that your Account is protected.

You must log-out from your Account when you have finished any session of accessing and/or otherwise using the Service. 

Maintaining the confidentiality of your Log-In Information is solely your responsibility, and you will be solely responsible and will be potentially liable for any and all activities that occur, result, or that are otherwise performed or undertaken in connection with your Account, along with any and all uses of your Log-In Information.  This includes, but is not limited to, any and all purchases and/or any other transactions or activities that are undertaken by means of any Account that you elect to create, whether or not authorized by you.

Deck of Dice reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account if it is used in connection with any activity that violates any of the terms or conditions of these Terms of Service.  Deck of Dice shall have no obligation or liability of any kind or nature for any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses that you may incur, or that arise as a result of any action that may be taken in connection with your Account, or as a result of someone using your Log-In Information or otherwise using your Account (whether with or without your knowledge or consent).

You must not allow anyone under the age of 13 (or anyone considered a minor in the jurisdiction in which you are accessing or using the Service) to access or use your Account or the Service.  You acknowledge and agree that any and all unauthorized access or use of the Service and/or any of the content materials that are offered as part of the Service that is undertaken by any individual who is under the age of 18 (or is considered to be a minor in the jurisdiction in which the Service is accessed and/or used by any such individual) is and will be entirely your responsibility, and you further agree that any use of your credit card information or any other form of payment process (e.g., paypal) by any individual who uses your Account and/or Log-In Information is and shall be solely and exclusively your responsibility in its entirety.

You acknowledge and agree that any and all rights in and/or pertaining to any and all Accounts that you choose to create (e.g., usernames, etc.) are solely and exclusively owned by Deck of Dice and its affiliates (as applicable).  Deck of Dice reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend, revoke, cancel, reclaim, remove, and/or terminate any username, Account, and/or any other form of user profile at any time and from time to time for any reason or for no reason, including, without limitation, any claim that a particular username misappropriates or infringes upon the rights of any third party.  Deck of Dice also reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate any Account which has not been used or that is otherwise inactive for a period of 180 days or longer.

You acknowledge and agree that certain user profile information (e.g., your user ID number, name, profile picture, etc.) will be publicly available and that third-party search engines may subsequently collect and catalog such information.  We strongly encourage you to withhold and not disclose any information that you do not want to be made public or that you would not feel comfortable sharing with the world.

License Rights

Subject to your full and ongoing compliance with these Terms of Service, Deck of Dice grants you, in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in these Terms, a revocable, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, terminable, limited license to access and use the Service solely for your own, personal, non-commercial entertainment use and enjoyment (collectively, the “License Rights”).  

You acknowledge and agree that you will not use the Service for any purpose that is inconsistent or that would foreseeably be in conflict with any of the terms or conditions of these Terms of Service.  Your personal License Rights to access and use the Service are expressly limited by these Terms of Service, and if you violate the letter or spirit of these Terms of Service, abuse the Service, create risk or possible legal exposure for Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates, or if, at any point, you do not agree to fully comply with any of the terms and/or conditions of these Terms of Service, your License Rights shall terminate immediately, and you must thereupon stop using the Service and remove any software or other materials of or concerning the Service, including, without limitation, any and all Deck of Dice Content from all personal computers, hard drives, smartphones, tablets and other computing devices and/or storage media, and destroy all copies of any software or other materials of or concerning the Service that remain in your custody, possession or otherwise under your control.

Deck of Dice operates the Service from its offices in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.  Accordingly, we make no representations or guarantees that the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content is appropriate or available for use in other locations or jurisdictions.  Access or use of the Service from any territory where the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content is illegal is absolutely prohibited and unauthorized.  By choosing to access and/or use the Service, you acknowledge and agree that (i) you do so of your own volition and at your own risk and expense; (ii) you shall not access or otherwise use the Service in the event that you are not permitted or otherwise forbidden to access and/or use products or services sourced from the United States; and (iii) you are and shall be solely responsible for compliance with any and all applicable local, state, federal and international laws, statutes, treaties, directives, rules and regulations.

It is entirely and solely your responsibility to provide, otherwise obtain, and/or pay any fees associated with, any and all equipment (e.g., computers, telephones, tablets, etc.), and any other hardware, software, technology, third-party service providers (e.g., in order to access the Internet, the applicable application store(s), for data or cellular usage, etc.) that may be necessary in order for you to obtain access to and use of the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content.

Suspension and Termination of Account and Use of the Service

Deck of Dice may, in its sole discretion, refuse, limit, suspend, revoke, terminate, modify or delete any and all Accounts and/or your access to the Service (or any part thereof) if you fail to comply with, or Deck of Dice reasonably believes that you are in breach of, any of the terms or conditions of these Terms of Service or of any of the other applicable policies, standards or guidelines adopted by Deck of Dice, or if you create risk or possible legal liabilities for Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates or any third party, or if you infringe upon the rights of Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates or any third party (including intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights), or if you violate any applicable law, statute, treaty, ordinance, rule or regulation, or for any other improper or illegal use of the Service, all as determined by Deck of Dice, in its sole discretion and with or without prior notice to you.  The suspension or termination of your Account may result in you losing your License Rights, including, without limitation, your username and/or persona, as well as the loss of any earned, unearned or purchased benefits, privileges and/or virtual items (e.g., virtual currencies, digital items, etc.) associated with your Account and/or your use of the Service.  The suspension or termination of your Account may also result in disabling your access to the Service, including, but not limited to, any User Content submitted by you or by others. 

You acknowledge and agree that no damages shall arise in connection with Deck of Dice’s suspension or termination of the Service or any Account owned or otherwise controlled by you, and you further agree that cancelling or terminating your Account is your sole and exclusive remedy for any dispute that may arise between you and Deck of Dice.  Deck of Dice shall have no responsibility, liability or obligation to compensate you or any third party for any loss or damages (if any) resulting from any such occurrence, and no refund will be granted or credited to you (including conversions to cash or any other form of reimbursement), and you will have no further access to your Account or any content linked to such Account that is suspended or terminated.  If you have more than one (1) Account, Deck of Dice may suspend and/or terminate some or all of your Accounts, as well as any or all content and/or other aspects of the Service.

You understand and agree that Deck of Dice does not need to give you any type of advance notice before electing to terminate and/or suspend any of your Accounts or your access to the Service, or temporarily or permanently banning any of your computing devices from some or all of the Service, or deleting, removing, revoking, or otherwise modifying any content-related materials (e.g., Virtual Money or Virtual Goods, as defined below) linked to your Account, although Deck of Dice may elect to provide such notice, in its sole discretion.  Any individual end user whose Account has (or Accounts have) been terminated, shall no longer be authorized to access and/or otherwise use the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content in any manner or for any reason unless Deck of Dice’s express written consent shall first have been obtained.  To request Deck of Dice’s consent for you to once again participate in the Service after any such termination occurs, please contact us at support@deckofdice.com.  Deck of Dice hereby expressly reserves the right to refuse to keep or maintain any Account (or Accounts) and/or otherwise provide the Service and/or any or all of the Deck of Dice Content to or for the benefit of anyone.  You are prohibited from knowingly allowing any former user whose Account has (or Accounts have) been terminated to use any Account that you have elected to create in order to access and use the Service.  If you believe that we have acted mistakenly with respect to any Account that you have chosen to create, you may contact us at: http://www.deckofdice.com.  In such case, we may investigate the matter further; provided, however, we expressly retain the right, at our sole discretion, as to whether or not to restore any Account and/or your access to the Service and the Deck of Dice Content.  Under no circumstances may we be held liable for removing, disabling, or restricting access to or the availability of your Account and/or the Service.  The provisions of this section are intended to implement these Terms of Service and are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on Deck of Dice to undertake, or refrain from undertaking any course of conduct.

For the avoidance of doubt, you acknowledge and agree that any suspension or termination of your Account does not, and shall in no way be deemed to, terminate any of your obligations or liabilities with respect to the period prior to the suspension or termination of your Account and/or that are intended to survive subsequent to any such suspension or termination.

User Content

The Service may include elements, features, functionalities, and/or other content that allows individual users to communicate and to create, comment, post, upload, share, transfer, distribute, and otherwise disseminate various forms of content that can be accessed and perceived in connection with the Service, including data, text, graphics, pictures, photographs, videos, and other content, information and materials sourced from you (collectively, “User Content”).  If you elect to upload and/or otherwise distribute any User Content by means of the Service, you hereby represent and warrant that: (a) you own all rights, title and interests (or have otherwise obtained all necessary permissions and/or consent required) in and to such User Content, including, without limitation, such rights as are necessary to publish such User Content; (b) such User Content is and shall be accurate, true and correct; (c) such User Content is not confidential in nature; (d) your authoring, posting, uploading, sharing and/or other distribution of any such User Content shall comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, treaties, directives, rules and regulations, contractual restrictions, fiduciary duties, or other third-party rights; (e) such User Content shall not infringe or violate any copyright, patent, trademark or other intellectual property rights of any third party or third parties (including, without limitation, any moral rights, privacy rights, rights of publicity, etc.); (f) any such User Content is free of any viruses, adware, spyware, worms, bots, malware or other malicious code; and (g) Deck of Dice shall be freely entitled to exercise the rights granted in this Section by you in and to the User Content without any form of  payment or other obligation or liability to you or any other person or entity (including, without limitation, any royalties, other fees, etc.).  As between the parties (i.e., you and Deck of Dice), you shall retain all of your ownership rights that relate to your User Content (assuming you own it and have the right to publish it); provided, however, you hereby irrevocably grant to Deck of Dice and its affiliates a non-exclusive, fully paid-up, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual license (with full sublicensing rights) to reproduce, prepare derivative works, display and perform (publicly and otherwise), modify, adapt, translate, archive, store, create derivative works from, advertise, market, promote, distribute, and otherwise use and exploit, in any form, format or medium of any kind now known or later developed (whether as part of the Service or otherwise), any and all User Content that you elect to upload, post, share and/or otherwise distribute by means of the Service, and you hereby waive and expressly agree never to assert against Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates any so-called “moral rights” that you may have or may ever be deemed to have in and relating to any or all of your User Content.  You acknowledge and agree that you are willingly and voluntarily publishing your User Content by means of the Service using the technologies and tools provided by Deck of Dice, and that other users of the Service may use your User Content. 

All User Content is and shall be the sole responsibility of the individual user from whom any such User Content originated.  Under no circumstances shall Deck of Dice be responsible, directly or indirectly, for any User Content, nor shall Deck of Dice be responsible for enforcing any rights or interests that you may have with respect to your User Content against any user(s) of the Service or any other person or entity.  If you have a dispute with another user of the Service, you are responsible for contacting the other user directly; please do not contact Deck of Dice regarding any dispute that may arise between you and any other user of the Service.  Deck of Dice has no obligation and is not required to regulate User Content and, therefore, we do not guarantee the quality, accuracy, integrity or security of any User Content that is accessible by means of the Service, and we do not endorse or sponsor any User Content in any manner.  When you access and use the Service, you acknowledge that such access and/or use of the Service is undertaken at your own risk and expense, and that you may encounter, experience, view, or otherwise be exposed to offensive or objectionable material (or that you consider offensive or objectionable).  Accordingly, you agree that Deck of Dice is not and will not be held liable under any legal theory for any User Content and/or any events or circumstance regarding any User Content.

Although Deck of Dice does not have any obligation or liability to review, monitor, screen, edit, disable, mask, block, deny access, delete or otherwise modify any User Content, Deck of Dice expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to exercise any or all of the foregoing rights in connection with any User Content at any time and from time to time, for any reason or for no specified reason, with or without prior notice, and without any obligation or liability whatsoever to you or to any other person or entity.

Deck of Dice may, in its sole discretion, include various forums, blogs, communities, social media platforms, chat area(s), and/or other such forms or methods of communications within the Service that allow you to create, comment, post, upload, share, transfer, distribute, and otherwise disseminate User Content.  Please be advised that Deck of Dice does not and cannot control how others (including any users of the Service) will use the User Content and/or other information that you choose to share.  Consequently, please be careful whenever you choose to make any particular User Content and/or related information public, and, please, only choose to make information public that you would feel comfortable sharing with the world.  Deck of Dice is under no obligation and shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with any use of any of your User Content by any other person or entity (e.g., in any forum, blog, chat room(s), etc.), nor any obligation to review, evaluate, use, and/or compensate you for any idea, suggestion, recommendation, feedback or information that you choose to submit to Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates.

You acknowledge and agree that if you elect to provide any suggestion, recommendation, evaluation, analysis, feedback, insight, and/or other form of comment to Deck of Dice regarding Deck of Dice, the Service, Deck of Dice Content, any related content materials, and/or any product or service offered by Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates (collectively, “Feedback”), then any and all such Feedback shall be the sole and exclusive property of Deck of Dice for all intents and purposes, and you hereby irrevocably assign and agree to assign to Deck of Dice all of your rights, title and interests in and to any and all Feedback, including, without limitation, any and all intellectual property rights and other proprietary rights therein and with respect thereto.  Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, you irrevocably agree that Deck of Dice and its affiliates, licensees, successors and assigns shall have the irrevocable and perpetual right to reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works, display and perform (publicly and otherwise), advertise, market, promote, distribute, commercialize, and otherwise freely use and exploit any and all Feedback (and any and all portions and derivatives thereof) however it chooses in any manner (whether now known or hereafter devised) at its/their sole discretion, including, but not limited to, the development of any product(s) and/or service(s), without any monetary compensation or any other form of obligation or liability to you or to any other person or entity.

At Deck of Dice’s request, you agree to cooperate with Deck of Dice and provide reasonable assistance, at Deck of Dice’s expense, in connection with its efforts to obtain any desired intellectual property rights and/or other statutory protections in or relating to the Feedback (or any portions or derivatives thereof), including, without limitation, through the execution of such documents and/or other actions as are reasonably requested by Deck of Dice.

You acknowledge and agree that, in the event and to the extent that any assignment of all of your rights, title and interests should be ineffective with respect to any of the Feedback (or any aspect, element, portion, or derivative thereof), you hereby waive any and all rights and interests with respect to any such Feedback, including, without limitation, any rights for any compensation or other remuneration of any kind or nature, and any rights for any claimed acknowledgment of authorship, creative credit or other attribution right regarding any such Feedback.

Virtual Money and Virtual Goods

You may be allowed to use an authorized credit card to purchase, using real money, a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited license that will allow you to use of the following types of digital items solely within the Service (i.e., only for authorized in-Service purposes and for no other purpose) for your personal and non-commercial use and enjoyment: (a) “Virtual Money” (including, but not limited to, in-game cash, coins, or other forms of virtual/digital currencies); and (b) “Virtual Goods,” including, but not limited to, virtual in-game items or services that are designed and intended to be used within the Service.  You acknowledge and agree that, regardless of the terminology used, while you may “earn,” “buy,” or “purchase” Virtual Money and Virtual Goods within the Service, you do not “own” or have any rights, title or interests in or relating to any Virtual Goods or Virtual Money, all of which digital items are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Deck of Dice and its affiliates (as applicable).  You will only be granted a personal, limited license to use the particular Virtual Money or Virtual Goods for which you choose to pay the then-current license fee required in order to use such Virtual Money or Virtual Goods in connection with the Service.  The license fees required to obtain any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods do not refer to any real world monetary value or reflect any intrinsic, stored or inherent value, and, furthermore, the Virtual Money and Virtual Goods do not constitute actual currency or real property of any type.  Instead, the designated attributes of any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods serve simply to indicate the characteristics of any such digital/virtual items and intended scope of your limited license rights regarding such items.  Except as expressly authorized in the Service, you can never sell, lease, rent, sublicense, exchange, share, redeem, or otherwise transfer any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods to any person or entity, including, without limitation, any other user or subscriber to the Service.

You acknowledge and agree that all purchases and redemptions of Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods (i.e., your use of any such digital items within the Service) are final and non-refundable, and that Deck of Dice is not required to revoke or cancel any purchase, redemption, or other transaction, or to provide you with a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive any real money or other compensation for any unused Virtual Money or Virtual Goods when an Account is terminated, irrespective of whether such termination is voluntary or involuntary, or whether you made a payment through Deck of Dice or any other authorized platform, website or service provider through which we offer the Service and/or that can be used to undertake the purchase of license rights corresponding to any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods (e.g., Apple, Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc.).  When a user desires to purchase a license from Deck of Dice for any Virtual Goods or Virtual Money, your order of any such Virtual Goods or Virtual Money shall constitute an offer to Deck of Dice to obtain a limited license for the applicable Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods, and such offer shall be deemed to have been accepted by Deck of Dice when the Virtual Money or Virtual Goods is provided to you in connection with your Account, or Deck of Dice initiates the processing of the relevant charges in connection with your Account, whichever occurs first.  All Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods are sold AS-IS without any warranties of any kind or nature (whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise).  You acknowledge and agree that you will only obtain Virtual Money and/or Virtual goods solely from Deck of Dice, and not from any third party.  As noted above, the occurrence of any particular offer of Virtual Goods or Virtual Money is not intended, and shall not constitute, a promise or guarantee by Deck of Dice or any of its affiliates that any particular Virtual Goods or Virtual Money will be maintained and/or will continue to be made available in the future for use within the Service.  The scope, variety and types of Virtual Goods and Virtual Money that you may be able to obtain from Deck of Dice and/or its affiliates may change at any time and from time to time, at Deck of Dice’s sole discretion.  Deck of Dice expressly reserves the right to add to, delete from, adapt, change, manage, regulate, control, and/or otherwise modify the contents, features and/or functionalities, and may change the pricing and/or availability, of any and all Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods, at its sole discretion and without prior notice, and neither Deck of Dice nor any of its affiliates shall have any obligation or liability to you or any third party as a consequence of the exercise of any such reserved rights.

The required license rights corresponding to any particular Virtual Money or Virtual Goods may only be purchased through the Service and/or by such other means as shall be authorized by Deck of Dice, at its sole discretion.  You agree to pay Deck of Dice or its affiliates (as applicable) the then-current license fees and related transaction costs (including any applicable taxes) incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you in connection with the purchase of the required license regarding any particular Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods, and you authorize Deck of Dice and its affiliates (as applicable) to charge any and all applicable fees and transaction costs using a valid charge card, or other method of payment that Deck of Dice or its affiliates (as applicable) may accept, and in accordance with any and all then-current terms and conditions regarding any such billing and payment transactions.

Virtual Money or Virtual Goods that are purchased from any authorized third-party platform, website or service provider (e.g., Apple, Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc.) are subject to the applicable payment terms and conditions adopted by any such third parties.  Deck of Dice has no control over any such third-party policies and is not responsible for any such third-party requirements regarding how you pay and/or how refunds may potentially be issued by any such platforms, websites or service providers.  Therefore, please carefully read and periodically review the applicable terms of service, privacy policies, and payment terms and conditions that have been adopted by any such third-party service providers.

Dispute Resolution, Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

This section shall apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.  If the laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside prohibit the applicability of any of the provisions of this Section, such provisions (or parts thereof) shall not apply to you.

Most concerns raised by users of the Service can usually be resolved by contacting our support team at support@deckofdice.com.  If Deck of Dice is unable to resolve any of your concerns and a dispute occurs between you and Deck of Dice, this Section explains how the parties have agreed to resolve such matters.

You and Deck of Dice, respectively, each agree to make reasonable, good faith efforts to endeavor to informally resolve any dispute before initiating arbitration.  A party that intends to seek arbitration must first send the other party a written notice that describes the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and that describes in reasonable detail the relief sought.  If you and Deck of Dice do not reach an amicable agreement to resolve any claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the date of which such written notice is received by either party, you or Deck of Dice (as applicable) may commence an arbitration proceeding.  Written notice to Deck of Dice must be sent via postal mail to: Deck of Dice Gaming, LLC, PO BOX 360006, Strongsville, OH 44136 Attn: Arbitration Notice.

YOU AND DECK OF DICE AGREE TO RESOLVE ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS THAT MAY ARISE BETWEEN US, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH CLAIMS ARE BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, UNFAIR COMPETITION, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, IN INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO: (i) ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US; (ii) YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE SERVICE AND/OR ANY OF THE DECK OF DICE CONTENT; AND/OR (iii) ANY ACCOUNT THAT YOU ELECT TO ESTABLISH WITH DECK OF DICE OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES (AS APPLICABLE).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Section shall not apply to the following types of claims or disputes, which you or Deck of Dice may initiate in any authorized court of competent jurisdiction: (i) any claims of alleged infringement or other misuse of any intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights, including any such claims seeking injunctive relief; and (ii) any claims relating to or arising from any alleged unauthorized use, piracy, misappropriation or theft.

An arbitration proceeding takes place before a neutral arbitrator, instead of before a judge or jury.  Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court, and typically limits the scope and duration of the discovery process that each party is entitled to pursue.  Arbitration also follows different rules than court proceedings and is subject to limited review by courts that have jurisdiction over such proceedings.  The arbitrator will issue a written decision and provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party.  YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND DECK OF DICE ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO SUE ONE ANOTHER IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND TO HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.

The U.S. Federal Arbitration Act applies to this Section.  Any arbitration proceeding will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where applicable, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes, as modified by this Agreement, both of which are available at http://www.adr.org.  The arbitrator shall be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

The AAA will administer the arbitration proceeding, which may be conducted through the submission of documents, by telephone, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

YOU AND DECK OF DICE, RESPECTIVELY, EACH AGREE NOT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR COLLECTIVE ARBITRATION, EVEN IF AAA’S PROCEDURES OR RULES WOULD OTHERWISE ALLOW SUCH ACTION.  THE ARBITRATOR, AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, MAY OR MAY NOT AWARD RELIEF IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF, BUT ONLY TO THE EXTENT OF SUCH PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.  You and Deck of Dice further agree not to seek to combine any arbitration PROCEEDING with any other legal action or arbitration without the consent of all parties to this Agreement and all relevant parties to any other such actions or arbitrations.

If an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction ever holds that (i) the class action waiver set forth above is invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable; or (ii) that an arbitration involving the parties and the subject matter of this Agreement may be pursued as a class action or otherwise proceed on a class basis or as a representative action, the parties acknowledge and agree that all of the arbitration provisions set forth in this Section shall be deemed null and void and of no further force or effect.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section, you have the right to initiate litigation regarding any dispute in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction, provided that all the requirements of any such small claims court are fully satisfied, including, but not limited to, any limitations on jurisdiction and the amount at issue in any such dispute.
