  7. SOCIAL MEDIA FUNCTIONALITY
    1. It may be possible to link your social media and other third party account(s) to the Game. This may allow you to share your achievements in the Game with your friends who are also logged in and playing and also enable you to see their achievements.
    2. The Game may contain social media “share” functionality that allows you to post to your social media channels such as your Facebook wall and/or your Twitter feed. This “share” functionality may contain pre-populated text that can be edited by you. You acknowledge and agree that you are fully responsible for the text that is included in any “shares” that you choose to make to your social media channels.

This is achieved by logging into the Game via a third party account, such as Google, and sharing a token with the cloud saving service provider. Your use of any such third party cloud save functionality will be governed by the terms and conditions/end user licence agreement of the relevant third party cloud saving service provider.
  8. IN-GAME PURCHASES
    1. The Game may include in-game purchases that allow you to buy things such as virtual currency, items, hints, lives or cosmetics etc. to use within the Game (“In-Game Purchases”).  If it does, it will still be possible to play the Game without making any In-Game Purchases.  Whilst you cannot switch off In-Game Purchases from being offered to you within the Game and there is no cap on the number of In-Game Purchases you can make, you may be able to switch off/manage your ability to complete In-Game Purchases by altering the settings on the device you use to play the Game (see paragraph 8.3 below for more on this). You acknowledge and agree that you are fully responsible for managing your In-Game Purchases and the amount you spend on In-Game Purchases within the Game.

    3. You may be able to manage your ability to complete In-Game Purchases by adjusting the settings on the device you are using to play the Game. More information about how you can manage In-Game Purchases on your device can be found either in the Platform Provider’s terms and conditions, in your device’s help settings, or online.
    4. If you are younger than 18 years old, you must have your parents’ or guardians’ permission to make any In-Game Purchases. By completing an In-Game Purchase, you are confirming to us that you have any permissions that may be necessary in order to allow you to make that In-Game Purchase.
    5. If you are a parent or legal guardian of someone under the age of 18, we recommend that you consider any parental controls that may be provided by the Platform Provider if you are concerned that your child may make excessive In-Game Purchases.
    6. In-Game Purchases can only be used within the Game. If you make an In-Game Purchase, that In-Game Purchase cannot be cancelled after you have initiated its download. In-Game Purchases cannot be redeemed for money or other consideration or otherwise transferred. If you make any In-Game Purchases in the Game, then the Platform Provider’s terms and conditions applicable to In-Game Purchases will also apply.
    7. If any In-Game Purchase is not successfully downloaded or does not work once it has been successfully downloaded, we will, after becoming aware of the fault or being notified of the fault by you, investigate the reason for the fault. We will act reasonably in deciding whether to provide you with a replacement In-Game Purchase or issue you with a patch to repair the fault. In no event will we charge you anything further to replace or repair the In-Game Purchase. In the unlikely event that we are unable to replace or repair the relevant In-Game Purchase or are unable to do so within a reasonable period of time and without significant inconvenience to you, we will authorise the Platform Provider to refund you an amount up to the cost of the relevant In-Game Purchase.
    8. If any damage is caused to your device by any item purchased via an In-Game Purchase, you are entitled to:
      1. request that we repair the damage within a reasonable period of time; or
      2. receive compensation from us for the damage caused to your device.

  9. PLAYING THE GAME WITH OTHER USERS
    1. The Game allows you to play against opponents or to play socially with other users. You may be able to:
      1. choose to play against another user or to play socially with another user whom we select for you, or
      2. play against, or play socially with, one of your contacts on a platform or social network which you have allowed the Game to interact with. The Game may also allow you to search for your friends in order to find them to play against or play socially with. We may also display the display names of your past opponents so that you can easily find them to play again.
    2. Where we select another user for you, we may either select at random or use such criteria as we see fit to select your opponent (for example, your past scores, your country, or the level you have reached in the Game or your other gameplay activity).
  10. MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT
    1. Save as expressly set out in these Terms, we are solely responsible for the Game, including providing any maintenance and support for the Game.

You understand that we may discontinue the Game or make changes to the Game at any time for any reason or no reason without notice or liability to you.

  11. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
    1. The Game and any and all features, content, materials and information made available via the Game (including any In-Game Purchases) belong to us and/or our licensors and are protected by intellectual property laws in various territories around the world. Except for Player Content you upload to the Game, you agree that you do not own the Game or any part of it, or any content you purchase in connection with any In-Game Purchases you make, or any Player Content you access through the Game.

    2. Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, we hereby grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, personal, revocable, limited licence to access and use the Game, Player Content (but only to the extent that we have rights in the Player Content) and any content you purchase in connection with any In-Game Purchases you make for your own personal, non-commercial entertainment.

Notwithstanding these restrictions, any open source software components included in the Game will continue to be governed by the terms on which such open source software components are generally made available to the public by the relevant open source licensing entity.
  12. RIGHT TO CANCEL
    1. If you live in the UK or the European Union then you have certain rights to withdraw from distance purchases.
    2. Similarly, please note that when you purchase a licence from us to useitems purchased via In-Game Purchases, you acknowledge and agree that we will begin the provision of such items to you promptly once your purchase is complete (i.e. our servers validate your purchase and the applicable item is successfully credited to your account on our servers) and therefore your right of withdrawal is lost at this point.
  13. LIABILITY
    1. To the fullest extent permitted by law and with the exception of any implied warranties that cannot be excluded by law, the Game, any Player Content made available through it, and any In-Game Purchases are provided on an “as is” basis and we do not make any representation or warranty of any kind, either express or implied in relation to the Game, any Player Content made available through it, or any In-Game Purchases including, without limitation, any warranties in relation to fitness for a particular purpose or in relation to quality, completeness, accuracy or reliability.
    2. Whilst we will exercise reasonable care and skill to ensure that the Game, any Player Content provided through it, and In-Game Purchases are virus free, we do not guarantee that the Game will always be available, be uninterrupted, secure or free from bugs or viruses, nor that the Game, Player Content, or any products, services or content provided through the Game, will be free from errors or omissions. Accordingly, we urge you to take your own precautions in this regard (such as using anti-virus software).
    3. Other than as expressly set out in these Terms, neither we nor any of our third party partners and/or licensors, including the Platform Provider, shall be liable (whether based in contract, tort or otherwise) for any claim, loss, liability, damage, cost or expense caused by your use of the Game, Player Content, or any content you purchase via any In-Game Purchases that does not arise as a result of a breach by us of these Terms and is not reasonably foreseeable at the time you entered into these Terms. In no event will we or any of our third party partners and/or licensors be liable to you for any damages, direct or indirect loss of income or profits that may arise as a result of your use of the Game, any Player Content, or any content you have accessed via In-Game Purchases.
    4. Nothing in these Terms excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded, disclaimed or limited by applicable law.
    5. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) arising out of or related to your breach of these Terms; any Player Content which you publish or contribute to; any behaviour in which you engage in the Game; and any violation by you of any law or the rights of any third party.
    6. To the extent that you may have any actionable claim under these Terms in connection with the Game you agree that it shall be brought only against us and in accordance with these terms, not any of our licensors, employees, directors, officers, related companies.
  14. GENERAL
    1. You acknowledge that these Terms are not intended to be for the benefit of, and will not be exercisable by, any person who is not a party to them. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that the Platform Provider and each of its respective subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms and therefore may enforce their respective rights under these Terms against you.
    2. In the event that there is a conflict between these Terms and the Platform Provider’s terms and conditions, the Platform Provider’s terms and conditions shall prevail.
    3. You may not assign, sub-license or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to any other person without our prior written consent.
    4. If we decide not to exercise or enforce any right that we have against you at a particular time, then this does not prevent us from later deciding to exercise or enforce that right.
    5. If any part of these Terms is found to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by a court or regulator, then, where required, that part shall be deleted from these Terms and the remaining parts of these Terms will continue to be enforceable.
    6. These Terms and any dispute arising out of or in connection with them (including any non-contractual claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and you agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts unless the law in your country of residence allows you to choose the courts of that country for the dispute in question. Any matters arising between you and the Platform Provider shall be as set out in the Platform Provider’s terms and conditions.
