You may not copy, decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Service, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent that any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open-sourced components included with the Service).

You may create an Account by signing up through a registration form on the Service or, in some cases, connecting your account from a Third-Party Platform to the Service.

Virtual items, costumes, downloadable content, and virtual “tokens” or currency (collectively, “Virtual Items”) may be offered for purchase or otherwise earned through the Service. Your election to make a purchase with real currency will be an offer to Boss Team Games to purchase at the prices and on the terms set forth on the Service.
You agree that you have no right or title in or to any Virtual Items. Boss Team Games does not recognize any purported transfers of Virtual Items outside of the Service, or the purported sale, gift, or trade in the “real world” of anything that appears or originates in the Service. You may not sell Virtual Items for “real” money, or exchange those Virtual Items for value outside of the Service, or otherwise sell, barter, or trade Virtual Items without Boss Team Games’s express written consent. To be clear, Virtual Items have no real-world value and are licensed, not owned. No property or other proprietary rights in or to the Virtual Items will accrue to you under any circumstances.
Unless required by law or otherwise specified on the Service or by the Third-Party Platform you access the Service through, all sales of Virtual Items are final when the transaction has been processed and no refunds will be given.
Boss Team Games may, in its sole discretion, provide you with customer and technical support services related to the Service (“Support Services”). Boss Team Games is not required to provide Support Services unless otherwise required by applicable law. No failure to provide, or to continue to provide, Support Services will be a default of Boss Team Games under this Agreement. Any supplemental software code provided to you as part of the Support Services will be treated as part of the Service, and as between you and Boss Team Games will be and remain the sole property of Boss Team Games and will be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Boss Team Games customer support may be reached by contacting us at email@example.com. None of the Third-Party Platforms or their owners have any obligation whatsoever, under any circumstances, to provide Support Services with respect to the Service. You agree that you will look solely to Boss Team Games in connection with Support Services.

The term of this Agreement begins upon your download or first use of the Service and will continue for as long as you have any copies of the Service in your possession or access the Service, as applicable.
Without prejudice to any other of its rights, Boss Team Games may unilaterally terminate or modify this Agreement at any time and for any reason, with no notice to you. For example, Boss Team Games may terminate this Agreement and your rights in connection with the Service, if Boss Team Games, in its sole determination, discontinues the Service or any part of the Service, stops supporting or maintaining the Service or any part of the Service, ceases to provide updates, no longer offers the Service for license, or believes you have failed to comply with this Agreement.
If Boss Team Games terminates this Agreement based on your failure to comply with its terms: (i) no refunds will be made; and (ii) you must promptly destroy or delete all copies of the Service in your possession.

Boss Team Games may monitor your Content and other communications to evaluate the quality of service you receive, your compliance with the Agreement, the security of the Service, or for other reasons. You agree that such monitoring activities will not entitle you to any cause of action or other right with respect to the manner in which Boss Team Games or its affiliates or agents monitor your Content and other communications and enforces or fails to enforce the terms of the Agreement. In no event will Boss Team Games or any of its affiliates or agents be liable for any costs, damages, expenses, or any other liabilities incurred by you as a result of monitoring activities by Boss Team Games or its affiliates or agents.

Boss Team Games and its affiliates and agents are permitted, but not obligated, to review or retain your Content and other communications.
The Service may contain links to other sites and software applications, including through display advertisements (the “Linked Services”). Boss Team Games does not control the Linked Services, and Boss Team Games and its affiliates and agents make no representations whatsoever concerning the content, accuracy, security or privacy of those Linked Services.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
|Your use of the Service is entirely at your own risk.
The Service is provided by Boss Team Games on an as-is basis. Boss Team Games expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
Boss Team Games makes no warranty that (i) the Service will meet your requirements, (ii) that operation of the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free, or (iii) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Service will be accurate or reliable.
No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from Boss Team Games, or through the Service creates any warranty regarding the Service not expressly stated in this Agreement.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, no Third-Party Platform is a party to this Agreement or your purchase or license of the Service. None of the Third-Party Platforms make any warranties, or assume any warranty or other obligations with respect to: (i) the Service, or (ii) any claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses attributable to the Service, including any warranties arising from claims of infringement of intellectual property or personal rights, products liability, or failure of the Service to perform, execute, or conform to any standard.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
|You expressly understand and agree that neither Boss Team Games nor any Third-Party Platform is liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including damages for loss of profits, goods, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if Boss Team Games or the Third-Party Platform has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from the use or the inability to use the Service or any other matter relating to the Service.
You hereby expressly and irrevocably waive, and agree never to assert any claims against any Third-Party Platform that you may have under any theory of law or equity anywhere in the world, in connection with rights licensed under this Agreement, your possession or use of the Service, or the content of the Service. Any claims arising out of the Service are subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement and may be brought only against Boss Team Games, as described in Sections 20 and 21 below.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, the liability of Boss Team Games and its affiliates will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify and hold Boss Team Games and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees harmless from any claim, demand, loss, costs, or expense, including attorneys’ fees, made by any person or entity arising out of your violation of this Agreement, state or federal laws or regulations, or any other person’s rights, including infringement of any copyright or violation of any proprietary or privacy right. Under no circumstances, including any negligent act, will Boss Team Games or its affiliates or agents be liable for any damages of any kind that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the Service.
YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
DISCLOSURES REQUIRED BY LAW
Boss Team Games reserves the right to disclose any information, including personally identifiable information about you, as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request. Boss Team Games reserves the right to fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing Boss Team Games to disclose the identity of any user believed to be in violation of this Agreement.
By accepting this Agreement, you waive all rights and agree to hold Boss Team Games harmless from any claims resulting from any action taken by Boss Team Games during or as a result of its investigations or from any actions taken as a consequence of investigations by either Boss Team Games or law enforcement authorities.
GOVERNING LAW; MEDIATION; JURISDICTION
The Agreement, and all future agreements you enter into with Boss Team Games, unless otherwise indicated on such other agreement, will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida. This is the case regardless of whether you reside or transact business with Boss Team Games, or any of its affiliates or agents, in the State of Florida or elsewhere. Unless a dispute would be governed by the terms of Section 21 below, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States.
For EU users only:
In the event of a dispute relating to the interpretation, performance, or validity of this Agreement, an amicable solution can be sought before any legal action. You can file your complaint with Boss Team Games by sending a message via email to email@example.com. In case of failure, you can, within one year of the failed request, have recourse to an Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure by filing an online complaint on the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution website: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage
. In the event that out-of-court dispute resolutions fail, the dispute may be brought before the competent courts.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Service (each, a “Claim”) will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court (except that you may assert claims in small-claims court if your claims qualify). You agree that each Claim must be brought individually.
YOU AND Boss Team Games AGREE THAT (i) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (ii) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (iii) NO ARBITRATION MAY BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Agreement and this binding arbitration clause.
Arbitration is a process with no judge or jury – an arbitrator will review the arguments in the dispute and award damages and other relief just like a court would. The arbitrator must follow this Agreement as a court otherwise would. Court review of the arbitration award is limited under the Federal Arbitration Act.
To start an arbitration, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your Claim and requesting arbitration, or we may do the same by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to your address. The proceedings will be conducted through JAMS, using their Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. You can view these rules at jamsadr.com or by calling 800-352-5267. The payment of the initial filing fees will be made by the party filing the Claim, and any other filing and other fees will be apportioned as directed by the JAMS rules. The arbitration will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States, unless the Parties agree to video, phone, or internet connection appearances.
Except as otherwise set forth below, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and Boss Team Games will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given (including any attorneys’ fees and costs awarded), and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based.
Notwithstanding the terms of this Section, either of us may bring a lawsuit in court for equitable relief, for any misuse or infringement of intellectual property rights, or for any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use of the Service.
BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND Boss Team Games WAIVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
You and Boss Team Games agree that if any portion this Section is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed and the remainder of the Section will be given full force and effect.
- 1. Agreement Revisions. This Agreement may only be revised in writing by Boss Team Games, or by Boss Team Games’s publication of a new version on the Service.
- 2. Force Majeure. Boss Team Games is not liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Boss Team Games, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Boss Team Games’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
- 3. No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Boss Team Games as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Service.
- 4. Assignment. Boss Team Games may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign the Agreement without Boss Team Games’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you will be null and void.
- 5. Severability. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be void, invalid or unenforceable, then that portion will be severed, and the remainder of the Agreement will be given full force and effect.
- 6. Attorneys’ Fees. In the event any litigation is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the prevailing party in such litigation will be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
- 7. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement will in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
- 8. Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that Boss Team Games would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we will be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws. Additionally, you agree that your sole remedy, if any, for any breach of this Agreement will be solely in money damages. You hereby waive and relinquish any right you may otherwise have to obtain injunctive or equitable relief under this Agreement.
- 9. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including the documents expressly incorporated by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between you and Boss Team Games with respect to the Service and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Boss Team Games with respect to the Service.
