IMPORTANT NOTICE: For U.S. and Canadian residents, you also agree that disputes with Micazook must be resolved on an individual basis through final and binding arbitration as described in Section 8 (“Dispute Resolution”).

Micazook reserves the right, at its discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms of Service, its Privacy Policy and other relevant Micazook policies at any time by posting the amended terms on the Service. You will be deemed to have accepted such changes by continuing to use the Service. If at any point you do not agree to any portion of the then-current version of our Terms of Service, the Micazook Privacy Policy, or any other Micazook policy, rules or codes of conduct relating to your use of the Service, your right to use the Service shall immediately terminate, and you must immediately stop using the Service.

Except as prohibited by law, you waive any rights of attribution and/or any moral rights you may have in your User Content, regardless of whether your User Content is altered or changed in any manner.

Micazook has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights in or to your User Content. 

3.3. User Interactions

You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of the Service and any other parties with whom you interact through the Service and/or Micazook games. Micazook reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with these disputes. You will fully cooperate with Micazook to investigate any suspected unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity, including, without limitation, granting Micazook access to any password-protected portions of your Account.

If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

4. Fees and Purchase Terms

4.1.Purchases 

In the Service you may purchase, with "real world" money, a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable right to use (a) virtual currency, including but not limited to virtual cash, coins or diamonds, all for use in Micazook games; (b) virtual in-game items, content or features; and (c) other goods or services (points a–c are jointly referred to as "Virtual Items"). You are only allowed to purchase Virtual Items from us or our authorised partners through the Service, and not in any other way.

Micazook may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items at any time, with or without notice. Micazook shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that Micazook exercises any such rights.

The transfer of Virtual Items is prohibited except where expressly authorized in the Service. Other than as expressly authorized in the Service, you shall not sell, purchase, redeem or otherwise transfer Virtual Items to any person or entity or attempt any of the aforesaid, including but not limited to Micazook, another user or any third party.

If you do not connect your game play on a device to an account that is linked to either your social network account or a Micazook account, we will not be able to restore any Virtual Money or other data associated with your Game play to a different device if you lose that device or it is damaged.

The data associated with Virtual Goods, whether purchased by you using Virtual Money or otherwise credited or awarded to you, is stored locally on your device and so is not synced between different devices even if you have connected your game play on a device to an account that is linked to either your social network account or a Micazook account. Accordingly, any risk of loss of this data is transferred to you (i) in the case of Virtual Goods which you purchase from us, upon completion of the purchase; and/or (ii) in other cases, (including Subscriptions) at the time the Virtual Goods are credited or awarded to you.

ALL PURCHASES AND REDEMPTIONS OF VIRTUAL ITEMS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE.

The provision of Virtual Items for use in Micazook games is a service provided by Micazook that commences immediately upon acceptance by Micazook of your purchase.

4.2. Payment of Fees

You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you. Micazook may revise the pricing for the Virtual Items offered through the Service at any time. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MICAZOOK 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.

5. Updates to the Service

You understand that the Service is an evolving one. Micazook may require that you accept updates to the Service and to Micazook's games you have installed on your device or computer. You acknowledge and agree that Micazook may update the Service and Micazook games, with or without notifying you. You may need to update third party software from time to time in order to receive the Service and play Micazook games.

6. Disclaimer of Warranties

WITHOUT LIMITING MICAZOOK'S LIABILITY UNDER SECTION 7 BELOW, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS FOR YOUR USE, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND THOSE ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. MICAZOOK DOES NOT WARRANT THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE AT THE TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING; THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE; THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; OR THAT THE GAME OR THE SERVICE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties. Accordingly, some of the above disclaimers may not apply to you.

7. Limitation of Liability; Sole and Exclusive Remedy; Indemnification

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MICAZOOK SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER SIMILAR DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF REVENUES, LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (HOWEVER SUCH LOSSES ARE QUALIFIED), ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE OR THE SERVICE ITSELF, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT MICAZOOK HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, MICAZOOK SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR MORE THAN THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID TO MICAZOOK IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS OF SERVICE IN THE SIX (6) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH YOU FIRST ASSERT A CLAIM. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID ANYTHING TO MICAZOOK DURING SUCH TIME PERIOD, YOUR SOLE REMEDY (AND MICAZOOK'S EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY) FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH MICAZOOK IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE AND TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT. 

NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE SHALL AFFECT THE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF ANY CONSUMER OR EXCLUDE OR RESTRICT ANY LIABILITY RESULTING FROM GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF MICAZOOK OR FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY ARISING FROM ANY NEGLIGENCE OR FRAUD OF MICAZOOK.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Micazook (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) harmless from any claim, demand, damages or other losses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, asserted by any third-party resulting from or arising out of your use of the Service, or any breach by you of these Terms of Service, however the foregoing does not apply if the infringement of rights is not attributable to your intentional or negligent behavior.

8. Dispute Resolution

You and Micazook agree that the processes for dispute resolution described in this agreement will apply to any dispute or claims related to these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, or the Service. Disputes include any claims of any kind, including but not limited to legal, equitable, or statutory claims. Processes for dispute resolution will apply even if you stop using your Account, delete your Account, or stop using the Service. They will also apply to disputes that arose before we entered into this agreement.

Sections 8.1 to 8.6 apply to you if you are a resident of the United States or Canada. They do not apply to you if you are a resident of any other country.

8.1. Informal Dispute Resolution

You must try to informally resolve any dispute directly with Micazook for at least thirty (30) days before you start an arbitration. The informal dispute resolution process starts when you give Micazook written notice of the dispute through legal@Micazook.com.

8.2. Arbitration Agreement 

You and Micazook agree to resolve any disputes exclusively in final and binding arbitration as follows:

Either you or Micazook may choose to submit any dispute for resolution exclusively by final and binding arbitration unless the claim is within the exceptions described below. If you or Micazook brings a claim in court that can be resolved by arbitration under this section, then either party can ask the court to order the parties to resolve the claim by arbitration. The arbitrator will have the exclusive authority to decide whether any portion of Section 8 (“Dispute Resolution”) is valid or enforceable, or whether it applies to a claim.

An arbitration proceeding will be held before a neutral arbitrator. This means you and Micazook agree to give up the right to resolve the dispute in a trial before a judge or jury. Arbitration has different rules than more formal lawsuits. For example, the ability to force the other side to share information may be more limited than the process called discovery in formal lawsuits. After the arbitrator decides the outcome, that decision will be final. You or Micazook can ask the arbitrator to put a decision or award and the reasons for it in writing. Either of us can ask a court to confirm or enter the arbitrator’s final decision or award, which will make it the same as a court judgment. You and Micazook will generally not be able to change the outcome of arbitration through courts outside of very limited circumstances. 

8.3. Arbitration Process

The arbitration will be run by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). AAA’s rules and procedures will be used for the arbitration, including the Consumer Arbitration Rules. But if there is a conflict between these Terms of Service and AAA’s rules and procedures, then we will follow these Terms of Service. To review AAA’s Rules or to start arbitration, you can go to AAA’s website. If either of us decide to start arbitration, we agree to provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules.

The fees for arbitration will be determined by AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. If the arbitrator decides that those fees are excessive, Micazook will pay the fees. Each side will pay their own attorneys’ fees and costs unless the claims allow for to the prevailing party to recover attorneys’ fees and costs, in which case the arbitrator may award them under the applicable law. If either party unsuccessfully challenges the validity of the arbitrator’s decision or award through a subsequent court case, the unsuccessful party shall pay the opposing party’s costs and attorneys’ fees associated with the challenge.

The arbitration will take place either in San Francisco, California, USA or in the county or province where you reside.

8.4 Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate

You and Micazook agree that the arbitration agreement in Section 8.2 will not apply to the following disputes:

  • Claims about Micazook’s intellectual property, such as claims to enforce, protect, or concerning the validity of Micazook’s copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, domain names, patents, trade secrets, or other intellectual property rights.
  • Claims related to piracy or tortious interference.
  • Claims that are not subject to an arbitration agreement as a matter of law and are not pre-empted by federal law that would allow for an agreement to arbitration.
  • Claims in small claims court.

Any dispute not subject to arbitration under these exceptions shall be resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction as described in Section 10 (“Venue for Disputes Not Subject to Arbitration”).

8.5 No Class Actions

You and Micazook agree that we can only bring claims against each other on an individual basis.

That means:

  • You cannot bring a claim against Micazook as a plaintiff or class member in a class, collective, consolidated, or representative action.
  • The arbitrator cannot combine any other person’s claims with yours into a single case or preside over any class, collective, consolidated, or representative arbitration proceeding.
  • The arbitrator’s decision or award in your case will not apply to anyone else and cannot be used to decide other people’s disputes.

If this section (Section 8.5 “No Class Actions”) is found to be unenforceable or invalid, then the entirety of Section 8, including Sections 8.1 to 8.6, shall be void.

8.6 Opt-Out of Arbitration Agreement and No Class Actions Provisions

You can choose to opt out of and not be bound by the Arbitration Agreement and No Class Action provisions above (Sections 8.1 to 8.5) by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to legal@Micazook.com with the subject line “ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” You must send us this notice within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Service or availability of this opt-out, whichever is later. If you do not send us a notice within that time, you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Micazook also will not be bound by them.

9. Applicable Law 

If you are a resident of the United States or Canada: (1) the United States Federal Arbitration Act (including its procedural provisions) governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate and no class actions provisions of Section 8, and (2) any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, or the Service shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, USA without regard to conflict of law provisions. 

If you are a resident outside of the United States and Canada, you agree that any claim or dispute arising out of or related to these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, or the Service shall be governed by the laws of United Kingdom without regard to conflict of law provisions. 

10. Venue for Disputes Not Subject to Arbitration

If you are a resident of the United States or Canada, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Micazook that is not subject to arbitration under Section 8 must be resolved exclusively by a federal or state court located in San Francisco, California. You and Micazook consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in San Francisco, California for all such claims or disputes.

If you are a resident outside of the United States and Canada, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Micazook must be resolved exclusively by a court located in United Kingdom.

11. Severability

If any part of these terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable under any applicable local laws or by an applicable court, that part shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect as nearly as possible our original intentions and the remainder of these terms shall remain valid and enforceable. If it is not possible to interpret an invalid or unenforceable part of these terms in a manner consistent with applicable law, then that part shall be deemed deleted from these terms without affecting the remaining provisions of these terms.

12. General Provisions

12.1. Assignment

Micazook may assign or delegate these Terms of Service and/or the Micazook Privacy Policy, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy without Micazook's prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment and delegation by you is ineffective.

12.2. Supplemental Policies

Micazook may publish additional policies related to specific services such as forums, contests or loyalty programs. Your right to use such services is subject to those specific policies and these Terms of Service.

12.3. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Service, contain the entire understanding of you and Micazook, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and us with respect to the Service.

12.4. Waivers of our rights

Our failure to exercise or enforce any of our rights under these terms does not waive our right to enforce such right. Any waiver of such rights shall only be effective if it is in writing and signed by us.

12.5. Notices

We may notify you via postings in our games, via e-mail or any other communications means to contact information you provide to us. All notices given by you or required from you under these Terms of Service or the Micazook Privacy Policy.

12.6. Equitable Remedies

You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under these Terms of Service to Micazook are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm Micazook and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone so that Micazook shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you. 

You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service or any Micazook game, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages, limited by Section 7 (if any).
