2.2The Software is licensed, not sold, to you, and you hereby acknowledge that no title or ownership in the Software is being transferred or assigned and this Agreement should not be construed as a sale of any rights in the Software. Licensor retains all right, title, and interest to the Software, including, but not limited to, all copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, trade names, proprietary rights, patents, titles, computer codes, audiovisual effects, themes, characters, character names, stories, dialog, settings, artwork, sounds effects, musical works, and moral rights. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as a license or transfer of any rights whatsoever in the Software except as explicitly stated herein.

Specifically, you agree NOT to:
(a)commercially exploit, in whole or in part, the Software, unless expressly permitted hereunder;

(i)remove, modify, or obscure any proprietary notices, marks, or labels (including copyright, trademark notices, or trade names) contained on or within the Software;
(j)use any trademark or trade name of Licensor or its affiliates in a way that is likely or intended to imply the permission or endorsement of Licensor, or cause confusion about the owner or authorized user of such marks, names or logos;

3.2Updates and Patches. We may provide updates, patches and other modifications to the Software that must be installed for the user to continue to play the game properly or at all. We may update, patch or modify the Software remotely and access the Software residing on your machine for such purpose, and you hereby grant to us the right to deploy and apply such patches, updates and modifications.

Your User Account log-in may be associated with a Third-Party Account and you are responsible for all use and the security of your User Accounts and any Third-Party Accounts that you use to access and use the Software.
4.2Software download, redemption of a unique serial code, registration of the Software, membership in a third-party service and/or membership in a Licensor service (including acceptance of related terms and policies) may be required to activate the Software, access digital copies of the Software, or access certain un-lockable, downloadable, online, or other special content, services, and/or functions of the Software (collectively, "Special Features"). Access to Special Features is limited to a single User Account per serial code and access to Special Features cannot be transferred, sold, leased, licensed, rented, converted into convertible virtual currency, or re-registered by another user unless otherwise expressly specified. The provisions of this paragraph supersede any other term in this Agreement.
4.3The Software requires an internet connection to access internet-based features, authenticate the Software, or perform other functions. You agree that some or all features of the Software may be inaccessible in the absence of an internet connection. Further, Licensor makes no warranty whatsoever that servers or internet services required to enable some or all features of the Software will be available at any specific time.
5.1The Software may include measures to control access to the Software, control access to certain features or content, prevent unauthorized copies, or otherwise attempt to prevent anyone from exceeding the limited rights and licenses granted under this Agreement. Such measures may include incorporating license management, product activation, and other security technology in the Software and monitoring usage, including, but not limited to, time, date, access, or other controls, counters, serial numbers, and/or other security devices designed to prevent the unauthorized access, use, and copying of the Software, or any portions or components thereof, including any violations of this Agreement. Licensor reserves the right to monitor the use of the Software at any time. You may not interfere with such access control measures or attempt to disable or circumvent such security features, and if you do, the Software may not function properly. If the Software permits access to Special Features, only one copy of the Software may access those Special Features at one time. Additional terms and registration may be required to access online services and to download Software updates and patches. Only Software subject to a valid license can be used to access online services, including downloading updates and patches. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, Licensor may limit, suspend, or terminate the License granted hereunder and access to the Software, including, but not limited to, any related services and products, at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.
6SOFTWARE STORE TERMS
6.1You may have purchased the License to the Software through a third party platform or online platform or store (each referred to herein as a “Software Store”), including, without limitation, GitHub and Itch.io, Steam, PSN, the Xbox store, the Apple App Store and the Google Play marketplace. This Agreement and the provision of the Software through any Software Store is subject to the additional terms and conditions set forth on or in, or required by the applicable Software Store. All such applicable terms and conditions are incorporated herein by this reference. Licensor is not responsible or liable to you for any credit card or bank-related charges or other charges or fees related to your purchase transactions within the Software or through a Software Store. All such transactions are administered by the Software Store, not Licensor. Licensor expressly disclaims any liability for any such transactions, and you agree that your sole remedy regarding all transactions is from or through such Software Store.
6.2This Agreement is solely between you and Licensor, and not with any Software Store. You acknowledge that the Software Store has no obligation to furnish any maintenance or support services to you in connection with the Software. Except for the foregoing, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Software Store will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Software. Any claim in connection with the Software related to product liability, a failure to conform to applicable legal or regulatory requirements, claims under consumer protection or similar legislation or intellectual property infringement are governed by this Agreement, and the Software Store is not responsible for such claims. You must comply with the Software Store Terms of Service and any other Software Store applicable rules or policies. The License is a non-transferable license to use the Software only on an applicable device that you own or control. You represent that you are not located in any U.S.-embargoed countries or other geographical areas or on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person's list or Entity List. The Software Store is a third-party beneficiary to this Agreement and may enforce this Agreement against you.

9.1LIMITED WARRANTY: Licensor makes no warranty against interference with your enjoyment of the Software; that the Software will meet your requirements; that operation of the Software will be uninterrupted or error-free (this includes any interruption or malfunction on the part of third party services included and or used in the Software); or that the Software will be compatible with third party software or hardware or that any errors in the Software will be corrected. No oral or written advice provided by Licensor or any authorized representative shall create a warranty. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of or limitations on implied warranties or the limitations on the applicable statutory rights of a consumer, some or all of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply to you.
9.2Except as set forth above, this warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, whether oral or written, express or implied, including any other warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement, and no other representations or warranties of any kind shall be binding on Licensor.

IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSOR'S LIABILITY FOR ALL DAMAGES (EXCEPT AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW) EXCEED THE ACTUAL PRICE PAID BY YOU FOR USE OF THE SOFTWARE.
10.3TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL LICENSOR'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS HEREUNDER BY YOU, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, EVER EXCEED THE LESSER OF THE FEES PAID BY YOU TO LICENSOR FOR THE PRECEDING TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD FOR ANYTHING RELATING TO THE SOFTWARE OR US$200.
10.4BECAUSE SOME STATES/COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS AND/OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, DEATH, OR PERSONAL INJURY RESULTING FROM NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD, OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, THESE LIMITATIONS AND/OR EXCLUSIONS AND ANY EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OTHERWISE RESULTING FROM THE ABOVE INDEMNITY MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT BE APPLICABLE SOLELY TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY SPECIFIC PROVISION OF THIS WARRANTY IS PROHIBITED BY ANY FEDERAL, STATE, OR MUNICIPAL LAW, WHICH CANNOT BE PRE-EMPTED. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. IN THE EVENT THAT SUBSECTION 9.4 IS APPLICABLE AND ANY OTHER SUBSECTION UNDER SECTION 9 IS NOT APPLICABLE, OUR LIABILITY UNDER SECTION 9 IS LIMITED TO GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
10.5WE DO NOT AND CANNOT CONTROL THE FLOW OF DATA TO OR FROM OUR NETWORK AND OTHER PORTIONS OF THE INTERNET, WIRELESS NETWORKS, OR OTHER THIRD-PARTY NETWORKS. SUCH FLOW DEPENDS IN LARGE PART ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE INTERNET AND WIRELESS SERVICES PROVIDED OR CONTROLLED BY THIRD PARTIES. AT TIMES, ACTIONS OR INACTIONS OF SUCH THIRD PARTIES MAY IMPAIR OR DISRUPT YOUR CONNECTIONS TO THE INTERNET, WIRELESS SERVICES, OR PORTIONS THEREOF. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT SUCH EVENTS WILL NOT OCCUR. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RESULTING FROM OR RELATED TO THIRD-PARTY ACTIONS OR INACTIONS THAT IMPAIR OR DISRUPT YOUR CONNECTIONS TO THE INTERNET, WIRELESS SERVICES, OR PORTIONS THEREOF OR THE USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND RELATED SERVICES AND PRODUCTS.
11.1This Agreement is effective until terminated by you or by the Licensor. This Agreement automatically terminates (a) when Licensor ceases to operate the Software or the Software servers (for games exclusively operated online), (b) if Licensor determines or believes your use of the Software involves or may involve fraud or money laundering or any other illicit activity, (c) upon your failure to comply with any term or condition in this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the (i) License conditions or (ii) the Terms of such Software Store required to access the Software. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by (x) requesting Licensor to terminate and delete your User Account that is used to access or use the Software using the method set forth in the Terms of Service (if applicable) or (y) destroying and/or deleting any and all copies of all Software in your possession, custody, or control.

13.1You shall be responsible for and shall pay and shall indemnify and hold harmless Licensor and any and all of its affiliates, officers, directors, and employees against all taxes, duties, and levies of any kind imposed by any governmental entity with respect to the transactions contemplated under the this Agreement, including interest and penalties thereon (exclusive of taxes on Licensor's net income), irrespective of whether included in any invoice sent to you at any time by Licensor. You shall provide copies of any and all exemption certificates to Licensor if you are entitled to any exemption.
