This also applies to other stuff, like in-game currency or items, regardless of whether you “earned” those items in a game or “purchased” them. Your account and any related items are owned by Athena FZE. Athena FZE gives you a limited license to use your account and the related items while We offer the Services

WE MAY DELETE OR TERMINATE ACCOUNTS THAT ARE INACTIVE (I.E., NOT LOGGED INTO) FOR 180 DAYS.

You are not allowed to transfer Virtual Items outside of the Service (i.e., in the “real world”), for example by selling, gifting, or trading them. We won’t recognize those transfers as legitimate. You are not allowed to sublicense, trade, sell or attempt to sell in-game Virtual Items for “real” money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a game. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited andvoid and We may terminate your Account because of it.

If you transmit or upload User Content on the Service, you agree that it will be:

  1. accurate;
  2. not confidential;
  3. not in violation of the law;
  4. not in violation of contractual restrictions or other parties’ rights, and that you have permission from any other party whose personal or other information or intellectual property is contained within the User Content;
  5. free of viruses, adware, spyware, worms or other malicious code;

You own your User Content, but you give Athena FZE a perpetual and irrevocable (other than as provided below), worldwide, fully paid-up and royalty-free, non-exclusive, license to use your User Content and any modified and derivative works thereof in connection with the Service, including in marketing and promotions. To the extent allowed by applicable laws, you waive any moral rights you may have in any User Content (like the right to be identified as the author of the User Content or the right to object to a certain use of that User Content).

If you request deletion of your User Content we will take reasonable steps to remove your User Content from active use, which may include suppression of your User Content in our systems. However, User Content may persist in our systems, including back-up copies. We may also retain copies of User Content if we are legally required to do so.

When you post your observations and comments on the Service such as in forums, blogs and chat features, We cannot guarantee that other players will not use the ideas and information that you share. If you have an idea or information that you would like to keep confidential and/or don’t want others to use, don’t post it. Athena FZE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY OTHER PERSON’S USE OR APPROPRIATION OF ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION YOU POST IN ANY FORUMS, BLOGS AND CHAT ROOMS.

7. MONITORING USE OF SERVICE AND USER CONTENT

We have no obligation to monitor User Content and We are not responsible for monitoring the Service for inappropriate or illegal User Content or conduct by other players. That said, We have the right, in our sole discretion, to edit, refuse to post, or remove any User Content.

We may also, at our discretion, choose to monitor and/or record your interaction with the Service or your communications with Athena FZE or other players (including without limitation chat text and voice communications) when you are using the Service.

We are not responsible for information, materials, products or services provided by other players (for instance, in their profiles). However, if someone is violating these Terms or misusing the Service, please let us know by using a “Report Abuse” link provided in the Service or contact us at Customer Support: .

8. YOUR DEALINGS WITH OTHER PLAYERS

You are responsible for your interactions with other players. If you have a problem with another player, We are not required to get involved, but We can if We desire.

If you have a dispute with another player, you release Athena FZE and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees, and all Athena FZE Affiliates from responsibility, claims, demands and/or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, whether known or unknown, resulting from that dispute or connected to that dispute. This includes damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use or data.

If you live in California, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

9. PAYMENT TERMS

We provide a service in the form of access to games and Virtual Items. In the Service, you may use “real world” money to obtain a limited license to use Virtual Items and/or other goods or services.

How it Works:

You get a limited license to Virtual Items by visiting the purchase page in one of our games and providing billing authorization through the platform on which You are playing (e.g., Facebook, Apple iOS, Android).

On Athena FZE.com, the payment page will let you know what you can use to pay when you make your purchase. We may change what you can use to pay from time to time, at Our sole discretion. Virtual Items purchased in Our games on other platforms such as Facebook, Apple iOS, or Android will be subject to those platforms’ payment terms and conditions. Athena FZE does not control how you can pay or how any refunds may be issued on those platforms. Please review those platforms’ terms of service for additional information.

When you get a limited license to use Virtual Items from our Services on Athena FZE.com, We may send you a confirmation email or text that will have details of the items you have ordered. Please check that the details in the confirmation message are correct as soon as possible and keep a copy of it for your records. Athena FZE keeps records of transactions in order to deal with any future questions about that transaction.

For Virtual Items, your order will represent an offer to Us to obtain a limited license for the relevant service(s) or virtual in-game item(s) which will be accepted by Us when We make the Virtual Items available in your account for you to use in our games or debit the account through which you paid, whichever comes first. Your limited license to Virtual Items for use in Athena FZE games is a service provided by Athena FZE that starts when We accept your payment or redemption of third party virtual currency.

For orders to obtain a limited license to use Virtual Items, by clicking the button on the purchase window or page you:

  1. agree that We may start to supply your purchased Virtual Items immediately after you have clicked that button; and
  2. if you reside in the European Union, you acknowledge that you will therefore no longer have the right to cancel under the EU’s Consumer Rights Directive (as implemented by the law of the country where you are located) once we start to supply the Virtual Item.

You understand that while you may “earn” “buy” or “purchase” Virtual Items in our Services, You do not legally “own” the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Any “virtual currency” balance shown in your Account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your limited license.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL:

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ATHENA FZE 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, OR WHETHER YOU MADE A PAYMENT THROUGH Athena FZE.COM OR ANOTHER PLATFORM SUCH AS APPLE, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, OR ANY OTHER SITES OR PLATFORMS WHERE WE OFFER OUR SERVICES.

PURCHASES OR REDEMPTIONS OF THIRD PARTY VIRTUAL CURRENCY TO ACQUIRE A LICENSE TO USE VIRTUAL ITEMS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.

If you purchase third party currency or choose to make a payment in our Services through a third party (like Facebook, Apple, or Google), you are agreeing to the third party’s payment terms, and Athena FZE is not a party to the transaction.

Additional Payment Terms:

You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you. Athena FZE may revise the pricing for the goods and services it licenses to you through the Service at any time.

10. PROMOTIONS AND OFFERS

From time to time, We may offer limited time promotions. Please review the official rules (if any) associated with the promotion. They will apply in addition to these Terms.

In addition, from time to time, We may promote Offers. We are not required to give, and players are not required to accept any Offer. Offers are not transferable, redeemable or exchangeable for other things of value, except at our sole discretion. If you accept any Offer, you may have to sign a declaration of eligibility and liability release or sign other paperwork in order to get the Offer. Some Offers will be subject to taxes and other charges, travel, or activities outside of the virtual world, all of which will be disclosed before You accept the offer. If you accept an Offer you also assume all liability associated with the Offer.

11. THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING

Our Service and our games may feature advertisements from Us or other companies. Our Privacy Policy explains what information We share with advertisers. Please read it.

Sometimes We provide links in Our games or on the Service to other companies’ websites or to companies who invite you to participate in a promotional offer and offer you some feature of the Service or upgrade (such as in-game currency) in exchange. Any charges or obligations you take on in dealing with these other companies are your responsibility.

We make no representation or promises about any content, goods or services these other companies provide, even if linked to or from Our Service or games. Also, just because We allow a link to be included in Our games or Service does not mean We endorse that linked site. We are not liable for any claim relating to any content, goods and/or services of third parties.

Please also note that the linked sites are not under our control and may collect data or ask you to provide them with your personal or other information, or they may automatically collect information from you. When you use other companies’ services like these, the other company’s service may (or may not) ask you for permission to access your information and content. We are not responsible for these other companies’ content, business practices or privacy policies, or for how they collect, use or share the information they get from you.

12. COPYRIGHT NOTICES/COMPLAINTS

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and ask that you should, too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and similar or equivalent local laws that may apply. We reserve the right to terminate any player’s access to the Service if We determine that the player is a “repeat infringer.” We do not have to notify the player before We do this. We also accommodate and do not interfere with standard technical measures copyright owners use to protect their materials.

13. FEEDBACK AND UNSOLICITED IDEAS

We may request your feedback on certain features through a promotion or our customer insights program. You are not obliged to respond to our request. Any feedback you provide at our request through a promotion or program is subject to the rules of the specific promotion or program. And any idea, information, or feedback you submit to us voluntarily is subject to our Unsolicited Ideas Policy.

14. WARRANTY DISCLAIMER; SERVICES AVAILABLE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS

Neither Athena FZE nor any Athena FZE Affiliate make any promise or guarantee that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free.

USE OF THE SERVICE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. IT IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ATHENA FZE AND ANY ATHENA FZE AFFILIATE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS OR OTHER TERMS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. ATHENA FZE AND ANY ATHENA FZE AFFILIATE DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS OR OTHER TERMS OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, QUIET ENJOYMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

If your state or country does not allow these disclaimers, they do not apply to you. If your state or country requires a certain period for which a warranty applies, it will be either the shorter of 30 days from your first use of the Service or the shortest period required by law.

15. LIMITATIONS; WAIVERS OF LIABILITY

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ATHENA FZE AND THE ATHENA FZE AFFILIATES ARE NOT LIABLE

(1) FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL OR DATA, IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE; OR

(2) FOR THE CONDUCT OF THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICE AND OPERATORS OF EXTERNAL SITES.

THE RISK OF USING THE SERVICE AND EXTERNAL SITES RESTS ENTIRELY WITH YOU AS DOES THE RISK OF INJURY FROM THE SERVICE AND EXTERNAL SITES.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY ANY LAW THAT APPLIES, THE DISCLAIMERS OF LIABILITY IN THESE TERMS APPLY TO ALL DAMAGES OR INJURY CAUSED BY THE SERVICE, OR RELATED TO USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE, UNDER ANY CAUSE OF ACTION IN ANY JURISDICTION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACTIONS FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE).

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAWS, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF ATHENA FZE AND/OR THE ATHENA FZE AFFILIATES IS LIMITED TO THE TOTAL AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID ATHENA FZE AND/OR THE ATHENA FZE AFFILIATE IN THE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS (180) DAYS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH YOU FIRST ASSERT ANY SUCH CLAIM.

IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID ATHENA FZE OR ANY ATHENA FZE AFFILIATE ANY AMOUNT IN THE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY DAYS (180) DAYS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE DATE ON WHICH YOU FIRST ASSERT ANY SUCH CLAIM, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH ATHENA FZE AND/OR ANY Athena FZE AFFILIATE IS TO STOP USING THE SERVICE AND TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT.

Some states or countries do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitations/exclusions of liability described above. So these limitations/exclusions may not apply to you if you reside in one of those states or countries.

16. INDEMNITY

If you use or misuse the Service, or if you violate these Terms or any other applicable rules and that results in loss or damage or in a claim or liability against Athena FZE or any Athena FZE Affiliate, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Athena FZE and/or the Athena FZE Affiliate (which means you agree to compensate Athena FZE and/or the Athena FZE Affiliate on a “dollar for dollar” basis) for that loss, damage, claim or liability, including compensating Athena FZE and/or the applicable Athena FZE Affiliate for our legal fees or expenses. If Athena FZE or the Athena FZE Affiliate wants to, they are allowed to take exclusive charge of the defense of any case on which you are required to compensate or reimburse them, and it will be at your expense. You also have to cooperate in Athena FZE’s and/or the Athena FZE Affiliate’s defense of these cases. Athena FZE and/or the Athena FZE Affiliate will use reasonable efforts to let you know if they learn of any claim on which you have to compensate or reimburse them. This will apply even if you stop using the Services or your account is deleted.

17. AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

THIS SECTION ONLY APPLIES TO PLAYERS IN THE US AND CANADA.

If you are having a problem with the Service, many issues can be resolved on one of our forums or contact Customer Support:

We Both Agree to Arbitrate

If we can’t resolve our dispute through Customer Service, you and Athena FZE or any member of the Athena FZE Corporate Family all agree to resolve any claims relating to the Terms, the Privacy Policy or Athena FZE’s Services through final and binding arbitration. This applies to all kinds of claims under any legal theory unless the claim fits in one of the exceptions in the Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate sub-section. It also applies even after you stopped using your Athena FZE account or deleted it.

An arbitration proceeding is before a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge and jury, so we are all giving up our right to a trial before a judge and jury. Arbitrations have different rules than lawsuits in court. They are less formal than lawsuits in courts and provide limited opportunity to force the other side to share information relevant to the dispute - a process called discovery. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. But, if any of us doesnot like the arbitrator’s decision, the courts only have a limited ability to change the outcome of arbitration or make the arbitrator reconsider his or her decision.

If we have a dispute about whether this agreement to arbitrate can be enforced or applies to our dispute, we all agree that the arbitrator will decide that, too.

In addition, if you, Athena FZE or the Athena FZE Corporate Family member brings a claim in court that should be arbitrated or any of us refuses to arbitrate a claim that should be arbitrated, the other of us can ask a court to force us to go to arbitration to resolve the claim (i.e., compel arbitration). You, Athena FZE or the Athena FZE Corporate Family member may also ask a court to halt a court proceeding while an arbitration proceeding is ongoing.

The Arbitration Process

Singapore International Arbitration (SIAC) will run the arbitration between you and Athena FZE or the Athena FZE Corporate Family member, and SIAC’s then-current rules and procedures (including their Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes) will be used. If something in these Terms is different than SIAC’s rules and procedures, then we will follow these Terms instead. You can look at SIAC’s rules and procedures on their website or you can call them at +65 6713 9777

To start an arbitration proceeding, use the form on SIAC’s website () or call them at +65 6713 9777.

Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate

We all agree that we will go to court to resolve disputes relating to: Your, Athena FZE’s, or a Athena FZE Corporate Family member’s intellectual property (for example, trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents)

For more information about which court we can go to for resolving these types of disputes, see Section 19 (Venue for Legal Disputes Not Subject to Arbitration).

No Class Actions

We all agree that we can only bring a claim against each other on an individual basis.

That means:

  1. Neither you nor Athena FZE nor any member of the Athena FZE Corporate Family can bring a claim as a plaintiff or class member in a class action, consolidated action or representative action.
  2. The arbitrator cannot combine more than one person’s claim into a single case, and cannot preside over any consolidated, class or representative arbitration proceeding (unless we both agree to change this).
  3. The arbitrator’s decision or award in one person’s case can only impact the person who brought the claim, not other Athena FZE players, and cannot be used to decide other disputes with other players.

If a court decides that this subsection on “No Class Actions” is not enforceable or valid, then the entire Section 17 (Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver) will be null and void (i.e., go away). But, the rest of the Terms, Community Rules, and Privacy Policy will still apply.

Changes to Section 17 on Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver

We will give you 60-days’ notice by email or through the Service if We change Section 17 on our Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver.

18. APPLICABLE LAW

If you are located in the United States, you agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act (including its procedural provisions) governs the interpretation and enforcement of Section 15 (Agreement to Arbitrate and Class Action Waiver). In addition, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by California law, except for its conflicts of laws principles.

If you are located anywhere other than the United States, these Terms and our relationship will be governed by Irish law, except for its conflicts of laws principles.

19. VENUE FOR LEGAL DISPUTES NOT SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION

If you are located in the United States, judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 17 must be brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, California, unless the parties agree to some other location. You, Athena FZE, and the Athena FZE Corporate Family all consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in San Francisco, California.

If you are located anywhere other than the United States, judicial proceedings must be brought in the courts of Ireland, unless the parties all agree to some other location. You, Athena FZE, and the Athena FZE Corporate Family all consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Ireland.

20. SEPARATION OF TERMS

Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. Except as described in Section 17 under the “No Class Actions” heading, if any part of these Terms, or Community Rules is not enforceable, the rest of these Terms, and Community Rules still apply and are binding, and any unenforceable term will be substituted with a term that comes as economically close to the unlawful or unenforceable term as possible.

21. ASSIGNMENT

We may give our rights, or our obligations, under these Terms, or Community Rules to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not give your rights or your obligations under these Terms, or Community Rules to anyone without first getting Athena FZE’s written consent, and any attempt to do so without our consent is void.

22. ENTIRE AGREEMENT

These Terms, and any other policies or rules we reference in these Terms, make up the entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede all prior understandings of the parties relating to the subject matter of these Terms, whether those prior understandings were electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and us.

23. LANGUAGE OF THE TERMS

If we provide a translated version of these Terms, Community Rules, Privacy Policy, or any other terms or policy, it is for informational purposes only. If the translated version means something different from the English version, then the English meaning will be the one that applies.

24. NO WAIVER

If we do not enforce our rights under these Terms, or Community Rules, that does not waive our right to do so later. And, if we do expressly waive a provision of these Terms, or Community Rules, that does not mean it is waived for all time in the future. If we do waive a default or breach by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default or breach by you.

25. NOTICES

If we have to give you notice of something according to the Terms, or Community Rules, we may notify you by posting a message on or in the Athena FZE game(s) you play, sending you an e-mail, or using other ways of communicating with you based on the contact information you provide to us.

If you have to give us notice of something according to the Terms, or Community Rules, the notice must be in writing and addressed to Athena FZE Creative Tower, Fujairah City, United Arab Emirates, or email: unless we have provided a more specific way of notifying us.

26. FORCE MAJEURE

We are not liable for any changes or problems out of our control, for example changes or problems caused by natural disasters, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, network infrastructure failures, strikes, or shortages of transportation, facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
