An OONYX Account ("Account") may be required to access and use some OONYX Services.  If you have questions about Account registration, please contact us by visiting support.oonyxgames.com

To create an Account, you must have an email address, and provide truthful and accurate information.  You must be eligible to use the OONYX Service for which you are registering.  In addition, some OONYX Services may require creation of a "user name" or a "persona" to represent you in game and online.  User names and personas are tied to your Account.  You may not use a user name or persona that is used by someone else, is vulgar or offensive, or otherwise violates the Terms of Service.

You are solely responsible for all activity on your Account.  Your Account may be terminated if someone else uses it to engage in activity that violates the Terms of Service or is otherwise improper or illegal.  You should not reveal your Account password to others.  OONYX will not ask you to reveal your password, or initiate contact with you asking for answers to your password security questions.

2. Content 

"Content" on OONYX Services includes software, technology, text, forum posts, chat posts, profiles, widgets, messages, links, emails, music, sound, graphics, pictures, video, code, and all audio visual or other material appearing on or emanating to and/or from OONYX Services, as well as the design and appearance of our websites.  Content includes user-generated Content ("UGC").  UGC includes but is not limited to Account personas, forum posts, profile content and any other Content contributed by users to OONYX Services.  OONYX Content and UGC collectively shall be referred to as "Content." All Content--with the exception of UGC discussed below in Section 6 and 7--is owned by OONYX or its affiliates, subsidiaries, licensors or suppliers.  You bear the entire risk of the completeness, accuracy and/or usefulness of UGC found on OONYX Services. 

3. Entitlements

"Entitlements" are licensed rights granted, awarded, provided and/or purchased by you to access and/or use online or off-line elements or features of OONYX Services and/or products.  Entitlements include but are not limited to paid and free downloadable content, unlockable content, digital and/or virtual assets, rights of use tied to unlock keys or codes, serial codes and/or online authentication of any kind, in-game achievements and virtual or fictional currency not otherwise governed by a Digital Services Agreement.

4. Use and Expiration of Content and Entitlements/General License Restrictions 

OONYX grants you a personal, limited, non-exclusive license to use Content and Entitlements to which you have access for your personal, private, non-commercial, non-transferable, limited uses solely as set forth herein and as set forth in any additional documentation and/or agreements applicable to the OONYX Services accessed by you.  Content and Entitlements and all other intellectual property rights in or on OONYX Services as well as the products and services offered through OONYX Services, are owned by OONYX or OONYX 's third party licensors and is protected by United States and International copyright, trade dress, patent, and trademark laws, international conventions, and other laws protecting intellectual property and related proprietary rights. You may not copy or download any Content and/or Entitlements from an OONYX Service unless you are expressly authorized to do so.  In addition, unless expressly authorized by OONYX, you may not distribute, publicly perform or display, lease, sell, transmit, transfer, publish, edit, copy, create derivative works from, rent, sub-license, distribute, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer or otherwise make unauthorized use of Content or Entitlements.  Any commercial use is prohibited.  You agree not to remove, obscure, or alter copyright, patent, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices affixed to Content.  Your rights are subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service as well as any other agreements applicable to the OONYX Services you are using. 

OONYX reserves all right, title and interest in Content, Entitlements and all associated copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights therein that are not expressly granted to you in these Terms of Service.  Your permitted use of Content and Entitlements described above is limited by the intellectual property rights of OONYX and does not include any rights to other patents or intellectual property.  Making unauthorized copies or distribution of Content and/or Entitlements found on OONYX Services may result in the termination of your Account(s), prohibition on use of OONYX Services, and further legal action.  Content and/or Entitlement owners may take criminal or civil action against you for unauthorized use of intellectual property. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless OONYX from any unauthorized or illegal conduct by you, or through the use of your Account, on OONYX Services.

5. OONYX Services, Content and Entitlement Availability

Entitlements may only be held in Accounts belonging to legal residents of countries where access to and use of Content and Entitlements is permitted.  Entitlements may be purchased or acquired only from OONYX or an authorized retailer.  OONYX reserves the right to refuse your request(s) to acquire Entitlements, and OONYX reserves the right to limit or block any request to acquire Entitlements for any reason. 

We do not guarantee that any Content or Entitlement will be available at all times, in all countries and/or geographic locations, or at any given time or that we will continue to offer particular Content or Entitlements for any particular length of time. We reserve the right to change and update Content and Entitlements without notice to you.  Once you have redeemed your Entitlements, that content is not returnable, exchangeable, or refundable for other Entitlements or for cash, or other goods or services. 

6. Contributing UGC to OONYX Services

OONYX does not pre-screen all UGC and does not endorse or approve any UGC that you and other users may contribute to OONYX Services.  You are solely responsible for your UGC and may be held liable for UGC that you post.

OONYX respects the intellectual property rights of others.  You must have the legal right to upload UGC to OONYX Services.  You may not upload or post any UGC on OONYX Services that infringes the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of a third party nor may you upload UGC that violates the law, this Terms of Service and/or any third party's right of privacy or right of publicity.  You may upload only UGC that you are permitted to upload by the owner or by law. OONYX may, without prior notice to you and in its sole judgment, remove UGC that may infringe the intellectual property or other rights of a third party.  If you are a repeat infringer of OONYX's or a third party's intellectual property or other rights, OONYX may terminate your Account without notice to you.  If your Account(s) are terminated, you are not entitled to a refund for any fees you have paid, and you will lose access to Entitlements associated with your Account.

OONYX reserves the right (but has no obligation except as required by law) to remove, block, edit, move or disable UGC for any reason, including when OONYX determines that UGC violates these terms.  The decision to remove UGC or other Content at any time is in OONYX 's sole and final discretion.  To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, OONYX does not assume any responsibility or liability for UGC or for removal of, UGC or any failure to or delay in removing, UGC or other Content.

7. UGC License Grant to OONYX and Others

When you contribute UGC to an OONYX Service, you expressly grant to OONYX and its licensors a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, complete, sub-licensable and irrevocable right to quote, re-post, publish, use, adapt, translate, archive, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, syndicate, license, print, sublicense, distribute, transmit, broadcast, and otherwise communicate, and publicly display and perform the UGC, or any portion thereof, in any manner or form and in any medium or forum, whether now known or hereafter devised, without notice, payment or attribution of any kind to you or any third party.  You grant OONYX and its licensors all licenses, consents and clearances to enable OONYX and its licensors to use such UGC for such purposes.  You waive and agree not to assert any moral or similar rights you may have in such UGC.

If the OONYX Service on which you contribute UGC permits other users to access and use that UGC as part of the OONYX Service, then you also grant all other users of the relevant OONYX Service the right to use, copy, modify, display, perform, create derivative works from, and otherwise communicate and distribute your UGC on or through the relevant OONYX Service without further notice, attribution or compensation to you.

8. Paid Services

Some OONYX Services require payment of a fee.  You must have an Account and pay the subscription or other fees to participate in these activities.  For information about subscription and other fees for particular services, visit support.oonyxgames.com

FEES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART.

OONYX reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time.  If you pay a periodic (e.g. monthly) subscription for an OONYX Service, OONYX will provide you with notice of any changes to the fees or billing methods at least thirty (30) days in advance by posting such changes on the OONYX Service.  You are responsible for reviewing the OONYX Service to obtain timely notice of such changes.  Your continued use of the OONYX Service thirty (30) days or more after posting of the changes means that you accept such changes.  If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your subscription at any time, but OONYX will not refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your subscription, and we will not prorate fees for any subscription.  If your use of OONYX Services is subject to use or sales tax, then OONYX may also charge you for any such taxes, in addition to the subscription or other fees.  For further information, visit support.oonyxgames.com

A. Payment Options.  You may pay fees using the methods available for the particular OONYX Service and you agree to the terms and conditions applicable to each payment method you choose.  Payment methods may vary by OONYX Service.  When you provide credit card or other payment information to OONYX, you represent to OONYX that you are the authorized user of the credit card or other payment method.  By agreeing to this Terms of Service, you have agreed to permit OONYX to automatically renew your subscription to an OONYX Service by charging a valid credit card number which you have provided to OONYX.  Your subscription will be automatically renewed thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the term and each anniversary thereafter for a fee no greater than OONYX 's then-current price, excluding any promotional and discount pricing, unless you cancel your subscription.  You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account.  You must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify OONYX if your credit card is canceled (for example, for loss or theft).  Changes to such information can be made by contacting Customer Service at support.oonyxgames.com.  If you fail to provide OONYX any of the foregoing information, you agree that OONYX may continue charging you for any subscription automatically renewed unless you cancel your subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the subscription.  OONYX reserves the right to utilize third party credit card updating services to obtain current expiration dates on credit cards provided by you to OONYX.  Customers who use a payment method other than credit card may incur an additional payment processing fee, and may not be able to automatically renew subscriptions.  For further information, visit support.oonyxgames.com. 

As the Account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your Account, including your family or friends.

B. Trial Subscriptions.  For some OONYX Services, OONYX may offer a free trial subscription.  If you accept a free trial subscription, OONYX will begin to bill your Account for that OONYX Service when the free trial subscription expires, unless you cancel your subscription before that time.  You are always responsible for any internet service provider, telephone, wireless and other connection fees that you may incur when using OONYX Services, even when we offer a free trial subscription.  Trial subscriptions are not transferrable.

C. Fees Charged By Third-Party Sites and Vendors.  We may provide links to other web sites.  Some of these web sites may charge separate fees, which are not included in any subscription or other fees that you may pay to OONYX.  Any separate charges or obligations that you incur in your dealings with third parties are your responsibility.

9. Termination of OONYX Services

OONYX may terminate access to any online or mobile products and/or OONYX Services (and/or any portion thereof) at any time by giving you notice of such termination within the time period specified when you joined the particular OONYX Service, or if no time period for notice of termination was specified, then within thirty (30) days of the date such notice is either (at OONYX’s discretion) provided to you via email or is posted on the applicable product or OONYX Service or on http://www.oonyxgames.com/service-updates.

OONYX may also terminate access to OONYX Services for violation of this Terms of Service, if OONYX (in its sole discretion) deems that your use of OONYX Services renders OONYX Services less safe for others and/or minors or for illegal or improper use of OONYX Services, Content, Entitlement, products, or OONYX's Intellectual Property as determined by OONYX in its sole discretion.  You may lose your user name and persona as a result of termination.  If you have more than one (1) Account, OONYX may terminate all of your Accounts and all related Entitlements. In response to a violation of these Terms of Service or any other agreement applicable to OONYX Services accessed by you, OONYX may issue you a warning, suspend your Account, selectively remove, revoke or garnish Entitlements at an Account and/or device level, immediately terminate any and all Accounts that you have established and/or temporarily or permanently ban your device and/or machine from accessing all OONYX Services or certain OONYX Services.  You acknowledge that in such an instance OONYX is not required to provide you notice before taking action to suspend or terminate your Account, temporarily or permanently banning your device from some or all OONYX Services or selectively removing, revoking or garnishing Entitlements associated with your Account.  If OONYX terminates your Account, you may not participate in an OONYX Service again without OONYX 's express permission.  OONYX reserves the right to refuse to keep Accounts for, and provide OONYX Services to, any individual.  You may not allow individuals whose Accounts have been terminated by OONYX to use your Account.

If your Account, or a particular subscription for an OONYX Service associated with your Account, is terminated, suspended and/or if any Entitlements are selectively removed, revoked or garnished from your Account and/or if your device is temporarily or permanently banned from accessing some or all OONYX Services, no refund will be granted, no Entitlements will be credited to you or converted to cash or other forms of reimbursement, and you will have no further access to your Account or Entitlements associated with your Account or the particular OONYX Service.  If you believe that any action has been taken against your Account or device in error, please contact Customer Support at support.oonyxgames.com.

10. Cancellation of your Account

You have the right to cancel your Account or a particular subscription to an OONYX Service at any time.  If you do not agree to the terms in this Terms of Service, your sole remedy is to not use OONYX Services and to cancel your Account or applicable subscriptions.  You understand and agree that the cancellation of your Account or a particular subscription is your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute with support.oonyxgames.com, including any dispute related to, or arising out of: (1) any term of this Terms of Service or OONYX’s enforcement or application of this Terms of Service; (2) the Content and Entitlements available through OONYX Services or any change in Content or Entitlements provided through OONYX Services; (3) your ability to access and/or use OONYX Services and/or any Content or Entitlements thereon; or (4) the amount or type of fees, surcharges, applicable taxes, billing methods, or any change to the fees, applicable taxes, surcharges or billing methods for OONYX Services and/or any Content or Entitlements thereon.

Contact OONYX’s Customer Service Department at support.oonyxgames.com to cancel your Account.  OONYX reserves the right to collect fees, surcharges or costs incurred before you cancel your Account or a subscription to an OONYX Service.  You are also responsible for any amounts owed to third-party vendors or content providers before your cancellation.  Any delinquent or unpaid fees and other unresolved issues with OONYX Services must be settled before you establish a new Account.

16. Limitations on Warranty and Liability

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THE USE OF OONYX SERVICES, OONYX SOFTWARE, AND THE INTERNET IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.  OONYX SERVICES, OONYX SOFTWARE, OONYX PRODUCTS AND THIRD-PARTY SERVICES AND PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS FOR YOUR USE, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, UNLESS SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LEGALLY INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION.  NO WARRANTY IS GIVEN ABOUT THE QUALITY, FUNCTIONALITY, AVAILABILITY OR PERFORMANCE OF OONYX SOFTWARE OR OONYX SERVICES.  OONYX DOES NOT ASSUME LIABILITY FOR INABILITY TO OBTAIN OR USE ANY CONTENT, ENTITLEMENTS, GOODS OR SERVICES.  OONYX PROVIDES OONYX SERVICES ON A COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE BASIS AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS OR USE OONYX SERVICES AT TIMES OR LOCATIONS OF YOUR CHOOSING, OR THAT OONYX WILL HAVE ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR OONYX SERVICES AS A WHOLE OR IN ANY SPECIFIC GEOGRAPHIC AREA.

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, OONYX’S, OONYX’S LICENSORS' AND OONYX AFFILIATES' LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.  OONYX DOES NOT ENDORSE, WARRANT OR GUARANTEE ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT OR SERVICE OFFERED THROUGH OONYX AND WILL NOT BE A PARTY TO OR IN ANY WAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING ANY TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OF PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.

21. Supplemental Terms

Additional Terms and Conditions for Specific OONYX Services

Certain OONYX Services may require you to read and agree to terms and conditions that are specific to that OONYX Service.  Your right to use that OONYX Service is subject to those specific terms and this Terms of Service.  If there are any inconsistencies between the specific terms and these terms, OONYX will be the final and sole arbiter of any such inconsistencies.

Beta Tests

In its sole discretion, OONYX may contact you to review and evaluate one or more games, aspects of games, or online features prior to commercial release for the purpose of identifying program errors.  You will be asked to provide to OONYX (and to OONYX only) certain feedback and suggestions regarding your experiences while reviewing and evaluating the game(s) or site feature(s).  This process is known as a "Beta Test."  You must sign and return to OONYX a Pre-Release Software Confidentiality Agreement ("Confidentiality Agreement") for each specific Beta Test BEFORE you will be allowed to be a tester ("Tester") and BEFORE any software will be provided or made accessible to you.  Your participation as a Tester is subject to the Confidentiality Agreement and the following terms and conditions.

In connection with the Beta Test, OONYX may provide you, on a temporary basis, a pre-release copy of a game or access to a feature on the OONYX site.  You understand and agree that the pre-release copy and all other materials provided to you are confidential or proprietary information of OONYX.  You agree as a condition of participating in a Beta Test to (i) not copy or reproduce the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information, (ii) safeguard the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information and prevent unauthorized access to, reproduction of, disclosure of and/or unauthorized use of, the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information, and (iii) fully comply with the terms and conditions of the Confidentiality Agreement. 

You will carry out the testing personally and not provide access to pre-release materials to any other person.  You agree that breach of the above obligations will cause irreparable harm to OONYX, and OONYX is entitled to (in addition to any other remedies available to it) ex parte injunctive relief without bond to prevent the breach or threatened breach of your obligations.  Your obligation to keep the beta games confidential will continue until OONYX publicly distributes, or has otherwise disclosed to the public through no fault of yours, each of the games and the content that you are testing.

Upon request, you agree to immediately return to OONYX all copies of the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information OONYX provided to you.

As a Tester, you are invited to play beta games for the sole purpose of evaluating the games and identifying errors.  Nothing in these guidelines, or on this site, shall be construed as granting you any rights or privileges of any kind with respect to the beta games or content that you find here.  The beta games are provided for testing on an "as is" and "as available" basis and we make no warranty to you of any kind, express or implied.

When playing some beta games, you may accumulate treasure, experience points, equipment, or other value or status indicators.  This data may be reset at any time during the testing process, and it may be reset when the particular game completes a testing phase.  In this case, all player history and data will be erased and each player will return to novice status.

By selecting a "Play" button to start a beta game, you agree that: (i) playing beta games is at your own risk and you know that the games may include known or unknown bugs, (ii) any value or status indicators that you achieve through game play may be erased at any time, (iii) OONYX has no obligation to make these games available for play without charge for any period of time, nor to make them available at all, (iv) these games may be available only by subscription once the Beta Test process is complete or at any time in the future; (v) OONYX’s Terms of Service apply to your use of the games during the testing phase, and (vi) if it is a closed beta test, you will keep all information about the beta games confidential as stated above and not disclose such information to any other person.

Beta Test accounts are non-transferable under any circumstances.
