Last Updated: September 3, 2021
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND KRIKEY THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION 18 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION.
AGREEMENT TO TERMS
By using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, please do not use the Services.
3. CHANGES TO TERMS OR SERVICES.
We may update the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the updated Terms on the Site and App or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or you use the Services. If you continue to use the Services after we have posted updated Terms, it means that you accept and agree to the changes. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
4. USE OF THE SERVICES
(a) Eligibility. While some functionalities of the Services are provided to all users, for other aspects of the Services (such as the ability to create an Account), you must be at least the minimum age for personal data processing in your jurisdiction, and not otherwise barred from using the Services under applicable law. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (or your parent or legal guardian, as required by applicable law if you are unable to form a binding contract) have reviewed and agreed to these Terms. Parents and guardians are responsible for the acts of their children when using our Services.
(b) Registration and Accounts.
If you want to use certain features of the Services, you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the App, or through your Google account or through other third-party accounts we may support (such as Apple), as selected by you during the account creation process via the App. If you choose the third-party account option, we’ll create your Account by extracting from your third-party account certain personal information such as your name and email address and other personal information that your third-party account privacy settings permit us to access.
It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone, and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
You may not share, sell, or trade your Account or play with multiple accounts for a specific game experience within the Krikey App.
(c) Safety; Your Interactions with People, Places and Things. We encourage you to be aware of your surroundings, and play and communicate safely when using our Services. Without limiting any other requirements of these Terms, when you are using our Services you agree that:
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other people - those in the real world and other users of the Services. You will maintain safe and appropriate contact with others, and you will not harass, threaten or mistreat any other person.
You will not trespass, or directly or indirectly, attempt to enter or access, or enter or access any location, property or event where you do not have the right or permission to be present.
You will not engage in any activity that may result in bodily injury, death, nuisance, or property damage.
You can submit feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”) by emailing us at email@example.com. If you choose to submit Feedback, you agree that we are free to use or otherwise exploit it (including through multiple tiers of sublicensing) without any restriction or compensation to you.
Certain game experiences available within the Krikey App may provide you with the opportunity to purchase in-game currency (“Game Currency”) and to use that Game Currency to purchase certain digital items or services expressly for use in the respective game experience (“Virtual Goods”).
(a) Payment Authorization. When you make a purchase for Game Currency, Subscription, and/or Virtual Goods (each, a “Transaction”), you expressly authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge you for such Transaction. We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, and your email and postal addresses for billing and notification (such information, “Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third parties so we can complete your Transaction, and to charge your payment method for the type of Transaction you have selected (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information). All payments for Transactions are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms. All fees and applicable taxes, if any, are payable in United States dollars.
(b) Subscriptions. If you purchase a Subscription, you will be charged the monthly Subscription fee, plus any applicable taxes, and other charges (“Subscription Fee”), at the beginning of your Subscription and on each month thereafter, at the then-current Subscription Fee. BY PURCHASING A SUBSCRIPTION, YOU AUTHORIZE KRIKEY TO INITIATE RECURRING NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENTS AS SET FORTH BELOW. If you purchase a Subscription, we (or our third-party payment processor) will automatically charge you each month on the anniversary of the commencement of your Subscription, using the Payment Information you have provided until you cancel your Subscription. By agreeing to these Terms and electing to purchase a Subscription, you acknowledge that your Subscription has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation of your Subscription by you or Krikey. Your Subscription continues until cancelled by you or we terminate your access to or use of the Services or Subscription in accordance with these Terms.
(c) No Refunds; All Purchases and Redemptions are Final. Subject to these Terms, Transactions made through the Services are final and non-refundable. When you initiate a Transaction for Game Currency and/or Virtual Goods, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, revocable license to use such Game Currency and/or Virtual Goods solely within the Services for your personal and non-commercial entertainment use and for no other purpose. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership interest in the Game Currency or Virtual Goods. As a licensee, any Game Currency or Virtual Goods you receive through a Transaction have no cash or monetary value and are not redeemable or refundable for any “real world” money or anything of monetary value. Game Currency may only be redeemed for Virtual Goods and can never be sold, transferred, or exchanged for “real” money, “real” goods, or “real” services from Krikey or anyone else. Any accrual or balance of any Game Currency or Virtual Goods does not reflect any stored value. Once you acquire a license to Game Currency or Virtual Goods from us, you may not sell or transfer them to another individual or account. Subject to applicable law, we may revoke your license to such Game Currency and/or Virtual Goods at any time consistent with these Terms with no liability to you.
(d) Cancelling Transactions. If your Transaction was completed in error, you may send us a timely email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your issue and we may, in our sole discretion, offer a refund for your Transaction. If something unexpected happens in the course of completing a Transaction, we reserve the right to cancel your Transaction for any reason; if we cancel your Transaction, we’ll refund any payment you have already remitted to us for such Transaction. Your App Provider (as defined below) may have their own return policy on Game Currency and Virtual Goods; if such a policy applies to you, that App Provider’s return policy shall apply here instead. SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WON’T ASSERT OR BRING ANY CLAIM AGAINST KRIKEY, OR OUR AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR LICENSORS RELATING TO (A) A CLAIM THAT YOU OWN ANY GAME CURRENCY OR VIRTUAL GOODS; OR (B) A CLAIM FOR AN ALLEGED MONETARY VALUE OF GAME CURRENCY OR VIRTUAL GOODS LOST UPON DELETION OR SUSPENSION OF YOUR ACCOUNT OR MODIFICATION, TERMINATION, OR EXPIRATION OF THESE TERMS. Without limiting the foregoing, you may cancel your Subscription at any time, but please note that such cancellation will be effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH ABOVE WITH RESPECT TO YOUR INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION PURCHASE, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY PORTION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE PAID FOR THE THEN CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD AT THE TIME OF CANCELLATION. To cancel, you can send an email to email@example.com or use the account management controls available via the Services. You will be responsible for all Subscription Fees (plus any applicable taxes and other charges) incurred for the then-current Subscription period. If you cancel, your right to use the subscription Services will continue until the end of your then current Subscription period and will then terminate without further charges.

17. GOVERNING LAW AND FORUM CHOICE
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 18 “Dispute Resolution,” the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Krikey are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California, and you and Krikey each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
18. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
(a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services or Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Krikey agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and Krikey are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.
(b) Exceptions. As limited exceptions to Section 18(a) above: (i) you may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court If it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights.
(c) Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you live, unless we both agree to a different location. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.
(d) Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. We’ll pay for all filing, administration and arbitrator fees and expenses we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration, we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration, you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.
(e) Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided in Section 18(b) above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
(f) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND KRIKEY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.
(g) Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions in Section 18(f) of these Terms ("Class Action Waiver"), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.
19. GENERAL TERMS
(a) Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Krikey and you regarding the Services and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Krikey and you regarding the Services and Content.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Krikey’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Krikey may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction.

For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Krikey.
