The Terms of Service (“Terms”) you are reading are a legally binding agreement that governs the relationship between Seriously, as defined below and yourself (“you”) and your use of Seriously’s products and social games for the web, mobile or any other applicable platforms and/or devices (the “Service”).
Please review the Terms carefully.

Residents of the State of Washington are not within the scope of the agreement to arbitrate. See Section 15 for more information.

In these Terms, “Seriously” refers to Seriously Digital Entertainment Ltd. and its affiliates, which shall mean subsidiaries, parent companies, joint ventures and other corporate entities under common ownership. We may also refer to Seriously as “we” or “us”.

You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services, in whole or in part. Your continued use of the Services after such changes will indicate your acceptance of such changes in the Services and in the Seriously’s Terms.
To access or play our games you must create an account with Seriously (an “Account”).

The following rules govern the security of your Account and Login Information. For the purposes of these Terms, references to Account and Login Information shall include any account information, including user names, passwords or security questions, whether or not created for the purpose of using the Service, that are used to access the Service (for example, account information for a social network service account from which the Service is accessed):
You shall not share your Account or Login Information, nor let anyone else access your Account or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your Account. Seriously will not ask you to reveal your password and will not initiate contact with you asking for answers to your password security questions;
In the event you become aware of or reasonably suspect any breach of security, including, without limitation any loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your Login Information or unauthorized access to your Account, you must immediately notify Seriously and modify your Login Information if appropriate;
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Login Information, and you will be responsible for all uses of your Login Information, including purchases, whether or not authorized by you and ensure that you “log off” or exit from your Account (if applicable) at the end of each session;
You are responsible for anything that happens through your Account, whether or not such actions were taken by you. You therefore acknowledge that your Account may be terminated if someone else uses it to engage in any activity that violates these Terms or is otherwise improper or illegal
You undertake to monitor your Account to restrict use by those not meeting our Age Guidelines, and you will deny access to persons as set forth in our Age Guidelines. You accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of the Service by minors and you acknowledge that you are responsible for any use of your credit card or other payment instrument (for example PayPal) by minors.

Seriously’s Terms do not grant you or any other party any right, title or interest in the Service or any content in the Service. You hereby acknowledge that your license to use the Service is limited by Seriously’s Terms, and, if you violate or if, at any point, you do not agree to any of Seriously’s Terms, your license to use the Service shall immediately terminate, and you shall immediately refrain from using the Service. If the Service or any part thereof is determined to be illegal under the laws of the country in which you are situated, you shall not be granted any license to use the Service and must refrain from using the Service.

You may lose your user name, password and all related information and files associated with your Account, as a result of Account termination, without responsibility on the part of Seriously for any damage that may result from the foregoing, and Seriously is under no obligation to compensate you for any such losses or results. If you have more than one Account, Seriously may terminate all of your Accounts. ANY ATTEMPT BY YOU TO DISRUPT OR INTERFERE WITH THE SERVICE INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION UNDERMINING OR MANIPULATING THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY SERIOUSLY GAME IS A VIOLATION OF SERIOUSLY POLICY AND MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS APPLICABLE IN YOUR JURISDICTION.

At our sole discretion, we may require proof that you meet this requirement for age (“Age Guidelines”) in connection with use of the Services.

There is never any requirement to make any purchase of any kind to use the Service. The Service may include an opportunity to earn or purchase virtual, in-game currency, including but not limited to virtual coins, points, credits, bonuses and/or chips all for use in the Service (“Coins”) or virtual in-game items or collections (together with the Coins, “Virtual Items”). A certain number of Coins may be made available to you to collect when you log into the Service at recurring time intervals. If you exhaust your supply of Coins, you may elect to purchase additional Coins and continue to play the games through the Service or you may wait until additional free Coins are available to you. Coins and other Virtual Items are licensed to you by us for your use through the Service, subject to the limitations and other terms set out in greater detail below.
If you wish to purchase Coins or other Virtual Items, you will be required to pay a fee using “real world” money to obtain the Virtual Items. Virtual Items can never be redeemed or cashed out for “real world” money, goods, or any other item of monetary value from Seriously or any other party. You understand that you have no right or title in the Virtual Items appearing or originating in any Seriously game, whether “awarded” in a game or “purchased” from Seriously, or any other attributes associated with an Account or stored on the Service. Your purchase of Virtual Items is final and is not refundable, transferable or exchangeable, except in Seriously’s sole discretion. You may not transfer, purchase, sell, or exchange Virtual Items outside the Service, or attempt to sell, give or trade in the “real world” anything that appears or originates in the Service unless otherwise expressly authorized by Seriously in writing. We won’t recognize those transfers as legitimate. Accordingly, you may not 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, without Seriously’s written permission. Doing so is a violation of these Terms and may result in termination of your Account and/or legal action taken against you, any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void. Other than a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicense able license to use the Virtual Items with the Services, you have no right or title in or to any such Virtual Items appearing or originating with the Services, or any other attributes associated with use of the Services or stored within the Services. Seriously retains the right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate Virtual Items at its sole discretion, and Seriously shall have no liability to you or anyone for the exercise of such rights. Prices and availability of Virtual Items are subject to change without notice. In addition to the foregoing, Seriously may selectively remove or revoke Virtual Items associated with your Account upon its sole discretion.
Virtual Items may only be held by legal residents of countries where access to and use of the Services are permitted. Virtual Items may only be purchased or acquired from us and through means we provide on the applicable website or otherwise expressly authorize. Seriously does not recognize any purchases or transfers made outside of the Service on any other platform or e-commerce website, and shall not be liable for any claims or damages caused to the users with respect to Virtual Items purchased or obtained from third parties, and not through the means provided within the game. We reserve the right to refuse your request to purchase and/or acquire Virtual Items for any reason or revise the pricing for the Virtual Items at any time. You can get a limited license to Virtual Items by visiting the purchase page in one of our games, providing your billing information, confirming the particulars of your purchase and re-affirming your agreement to these Terms. Virtual Items purchased in our games on other applications stores or platforms such as but not limited to Facebook, Apple iOS, or Android will be subject to those platforms’ payment terms and conditions. Seriously does not control how you can pay on those platforms and shall not be liable for processing the payment by such third parties. Please review those platforms’ terms of service for additional information. Your order for Virtual Items 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 your credit card or other account through which you paid, whichever comes first. Your limited license to Virtual Items for use in Seriously games is a service provided by Seriously that starts when we accept your payment or redemption of third party virtual currency. When you get a limited license to use Virtual Items, they will reside in your Account until discharged through use of the Service or otherwise surrendered as a result of termination of the Services in accordance with these Terms. When purchasing Virtual Items or other content as may be made available, you agree to pay us the applicable charges for your purchase, including applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you, using a valid charge card or other payment method we may accept in accordance with the billing terms and prices in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. All sales of Virtual Items and/or other content are final. If your Account is charged for items you did not purchase, or you did not receive the items you purchased, or you were charged an incorrect amount, you may request a refund or correction in accordance to payment provider policy. Any refund request must be received within 96 hours from the time of purchase in order for refunds to be issued in accordance to payment provider policy. Refund requests past 96 hours from time of purchase will be honored according only in accordance to our payment policy. Other than charges to your Account, you agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 30 days after they first appear on your Account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 30 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies. You are responsible for and agree to reimburse us for all reversals, charge-backs, claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by us (including costs and related expenses) that were caused by or arising out of payments that you authorized or accepted. You understand that we may suspend or terminate your Account if for any reason a charge you authorize us to make to your credit card or other method of payment cannot be processed or is returned to us unpaid and, if such event occurs, you shall immediately remit to us payment for such charge through an alternative payment method. You acknowledge that Seriously is not required to provide a refund for any other 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 Seriously.com, applications stores or another platform such as but not limited to Apple, Google, Facebook, or any other sites or platforms where we offer our Services. All Virtual Items are forfeited by You if your Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Seriously’s sole and absolute discretion, or if the Service is no longer available. If your Account, or a particular subscription for the Service associated with your Account, is terminated, suspended and/or if any Virtual Items are selectively removed or revoked from your Account, no refund will be granted, no Virtual Items will be credited to you or converted to cash or other forms of reimbursement.
You represent and warrant that you have full right and authority to use the Service and to be bound by Seriously’s Terms. You agree that you will comply fully with all applicable laws, regulations, statutes, ordinances, and Seriously’s Terms.
You undertake that you shall not defraud, or attempt to defraud, Seriously or other users, and that you shall not act in bad faith in your use of the Service. If Seriously determines that you do act in bad faith in violation of Seriously’s Terms, or if Seriously determines that your actions fall outside of reasonable community standards, Seriously may, at its sole discretion, terminate your Account and prohibit you from using the Service.

We do not have to notify the User before we do this. In addition, Seriously accommodates and does not interfere with standard technical measures used by copyright owners to protect their materials as long as the Seriously CISO approves that such technical measures don’t produce any cyber security threat.
From time to time, we may offer limited time promotions, contests, sweepstakes and special offers (“Promotion”), each governed by its own set of official rules.

You acknowledge and agree that if you have not paid Seriously any amounts in the ninety days (90) days immediately preceding the date on which you first assert any such claim, your sole and exclusive remedy for any dispute with Seriously is to stop using the Service and to cancel your account.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer or exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain types of damages. Therefore, some of the above limitations in this Section may not apply to you. In particular, nothing in these Terms shall affect the statutory rights of any consumer or exclude or restrict any liability for death or personal injury arising from any negligence or fraud of Seriously. In such jurisdictions, our liability will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree to release, discharge, defend, indemnify and hold Seriously, and each of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or any of their directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with:

(iv) Your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right;
(v) Any claim that a user submissions made by you has caused damage to a third party; or (vi) Any User Content you post or share on or through the Service.

Seriously will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action, or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.
You agree that the provisions in this paragraph and Section 15 below will survive any termination of your Account(s) or of the Service.
By agreeing to these Terms, you and Seriously agree that any and all past, present and future disputes, claims or causes of action between you and Seriously arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Service, the formation of these Terms or any other dispute between you and Seriously or any of Seriously’s licensors, distributors, suppliers or agents (including but not limited to any application store or platform from which the Service is accessed or downloaded), and whether arising prior to or after your agreement to this Section, (collectively, “Dispute(s)”) will be governed by the procedure outlined below. You and Seriously further agree that any arbitration pursuant to this Section shall not proceed as a class, group or representative action.
“Country of Residence” for purposes of this Section 15 means the country in which you hold citizenship or legal permanent residence, as well as any country from which you regularly access and use the Service. If more than one country meets that definition for you, then your country of citizenship or legal permanent residence shall be your Country of Residence, and if you have more than one country of citizenship or legal permanent residence, it shall be the country with which you most closely are associated by permanent or most frequent residence.
(a) Governing Law.
(a.1) If your Country of Residence is the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the country of Finland without regard to conflict- or choice-of-law principles. The agreement to arbitrate contained in this Section 15, its scope and its enforcement shall also be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act without regard to conflict- or choice-of-law principles.
(a.2) If your Country of Residence is not the United States, these Terms, including the arbitration agreement contained in this Section 15, will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the country of Finland without regard to conflict- or choice-of-law principles.
(b) Informal Dispute Resolution. Seriously wants to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Seriously, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting legal@Seriously.com. Similarly, Seriously will undertake reasonable efforts to contact you (if we have contact information for you) to resolve any claim we may possess informally before taking any formal action. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after the email noting the Dispute is sent, you or Seriously may initiate an arbitration proceeding as described below.
(c) We Both Agree To Arbitrate. By agreeing to these Terms, you and Seriously each and both agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration as discussed herein, except as set forth under “Exceptions to Agreement To Arbitrate” below.
(d) Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate. You may decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting legal@Seriously.com within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement. By opting out of the agreement to arbitrate, you will not be precluded from using the Service, but you and Seriously will not permitted to invoke the mutual agreement to arbitrate to resolve Disputes under the terms otherwise provided herein.
(e) Residents of the State of Washington, USA. If you are a resident of the State of Washington or were a resident of that state while using the Service at any time since January 1, 2014, then this Section 15 does not apply to you, with the sole exception of the choice of law (Finland) set out in (a.1) above. For clarity, residents of the State of Washington are not agreeing to arbitrate and need take no action to avoid application of the agreement to arbitrate.
(f) Arbitration Procedures and Fees.
(f.1) If your Country of Residence is the United States, you and Seriously agree that the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes in effect at the time arbitration is sought. Those rules are available at www.adr.org. Arbitration will proceed on an individual basis and will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. You and Seriously further agree that the arbitration will be held in Los Angeles, California, or, at your election, will be conducted telephonically or via other remote electronic means. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.
(f.2) If your Country of Residence is not the United States, you and Seriously agree that the Arbitration Institute of the Finland Chamber of Commerce (FAI) will administer the arbitration, which shall be conducted in accordance with its rules in effect at the time arbitration is sought, and in accordance with the Finnish Arbitration Act, 967/1992, as amended. Arbitration will proceed on an individual basis and will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. You and Seriously further agree that the arbitration will be held in English and in Helsinki, Finland, or, if you so elect, all proceedings can be conducted telephonically or via other remote electronic means. The FAI rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees.
(g) Arbitration Shall Proceed Individually. Regardless of your County of Residence or the rules of a given arbitration forum, you and Seriously agree that the arbitration of any Dispute shall proceed on an individual basis, and neither you nor Seriously may bring a claim as a part of a class, group, collective, coordinated, consolidated or mass arbitration (each, a “Collective Arbitration”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing (and as an illustrative but not exhaustive example), a claim to resolve any Dispute against Seriously will be deemed a Collective Arbitration if (i) two (2) or more similar claims for arbitration are filed concurrently by or on behalf of one or more claimants; and (ii) counsel for the claimants are the same, share fees or coordinate across the arbitrations. “Concurrently” for purposes of this provision means that both arbitrations are pending (filed but not yet resolved) at the same time.
(h) Class Action and Collective Arbitration Waiver. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER YOU NOR SERIOUSLY SHALL BE ENTITLED TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN OR COORDINATE DISPUTES BY OR AGAINST OTHER INDIVIDUALS OR ENTITIES, OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY COLLECTIVE ARBITRATION (AS DEFINED ABOVE) OR ARBITRATE OR LITIGATE ANY DISPUTE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, INCLUDING AS A REPRESENTATIVE MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DISPUTE (AS DEFINED ABOVE), ANY AND ALL SUCH RIGHTS ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVED. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS, IN THE EVENT ALL OR ANY PORTION OF SUBSECTIONS (G) OR (H) OF THIS SECTION 15 (DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS) ARE FOUND TO BE INVALID OR LESS THAN FULLY ENFORCEABLE, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THIS SECTION 15 (DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS) MAY BE DEEMED VOID AND AS HAVING NO EFFECT UPON EITHER PARTY’S ELECTION.
(i) Judicial Forum for Disputes. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, in the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Seriously agree that any judicial proceeding may only be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Helsinki, Finland. Both you and Seriously consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.
You are subject to all laws of the geography in which you reside and from which you access the Services and are solely responsible for obeying those laws. You agree Seriously cannot be held liable if laws applicable to you restrict or prohibit your participation. Seriously makes no representations or warranties, implicit or explicit, as to your legal right to access or participate in the Services nor shall any person affiliated, or claiming affiliation, with Seriously have authority to make any such representations or warranties. Seriously reserves the right to monitor the location from which you access the Services and to block access from any jurisdiction in which participation is illegal or restricted.
Seriously’s Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Seriously relating to the subject matter hereof, and (except in the case of fraud or made a fraudulent misstatement) supersede all prior understandings of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, whether those prior understandings were electronic, oral or written, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, between you and us. Nothing in this subsection will prevent Seriously from modifying Seriously’s Terms.
You and Seriously agree that if any portion of Seriously’s Terms is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of Seriously’s Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
Seriously may assign or delegate Seriously’s Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under Seriously’s Terms without Seriously’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment and delegation by you is void and ineffective.
The failure of Seriously to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of the Seriously’s Terms or failure to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of Seriously’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. The express waiver by Seriously of any provision, condition, or requirement of Seriously’s Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement. Except as expressly and specifically set forth in this these Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by Seriously shall be deemed a modification of these Terms nor be legally binding, unless documented in physical writing, hand signed by you and a duly appointed officer of Seriously.
You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made under Seriously’s Terms to Seriously are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm Seriously and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone. Accordingly, Seriously shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety or proof of damages) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you. You irrevocably waive all rights to seek injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service or any Seriously game, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service and agree to limit your claims to claims for monetary damages, limited by Section “Limitation of Liability” set forth above (if any).
The headings titles in these Terms are provided solely for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance.
Seriously shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of Seriously, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Seriously’s control such as acts of God, 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.
We may notify you via postings on www.seriously.com, and via e-mail or any other communications means to contact information you provide to us. All notices given by you or required from you under Seriously’s Terms shall be in writing and addressed to: Seriously Digital Entertainment, Attn: Legal Department, 1351 Fourth Street, Suite 400, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Any notices that you provide without compliance with this Section on Notices shall have no legal effect.
