Such actions may result in loss of membership credit and/or loss of real money paid as part of any item / account trading or other prohibited transaction.

Intellectual Property Rights
Gameland® is a registered trademark of Infinity Computer Consulting, Inc.

You must not reverse-engineer, decompile or modify any Gameland client software in any way (except to the extent allowed by applicable law). You must not use a modified/customized version of the client software or attempt to sub-license it. You must not create or provide any other means by which the Site may be played by others (including, without limitation, replacement or modified client/server software, server emulators).

Materials (including without limit all information, software, data, text, photographs, graphics, sound and video) placed on the Site by us or on our behalf are protected by copyright and other intellectual property rights of ourselves or our business partners / suppliers / advertisers. You may not use these materials or the Site except in accordance with these terms and conditions and for personal (i.e. non-commercial) use only.

You agree that all intellectual property or other rights in any game character, account and items are and will remain our property.

By posting chat or other materials on the Site, you grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty free, worldwide license to use and/or modify such materials on any Gameland product as we see fit.
You agree that by submitting any material of any kind to us for any purpose connected with the Site (non-exhaustive examples are suggestions and ideas for any game or contributions to any page), you are giving us a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free license to use and/or modify the submitted materials as we see fit. You agree to waive any moral rights to the extent permitted by law and that you will not withdraw the submission or attempt to make a charge for its use. Furthermore you guarantee that you are the exclusive copyright holder in relation to the submission and that the submission in no way breaches the rights of any other person or entity.

Subscription
You need a subscription to use certain features of the Site. If you apply for a subscription, you must ensure all the information that you submit is true and accurate (including without limit your credit card number and expiration date, and other payment details) and that you have appropriate parental or guardian consent as applicable. You agree to pay all subscription fees specified when you apply including all applicable taxes. Unless otherwise stated, all prices shown are US Dollars.
By submitting your order you are making an offer to subscribe to the relevant part of the Site. Your offer is accepted and a binding contract occurs when we send a message to your account mail inbox confirming that your payment has been received or if you log into a subscribers-only part of the Site (whichever comes first).

All subscription payments will continue to be taken in advance at the relevant intervals (e.g. monthly in the case of monthly subscriptions) until you cancel your subscription (see below).

Payments by credit cards are also subject to our credit card agreement which forms part of these terms and conditions.

We reserve the right to alter the amount or terms of our subscription fees at any time. This will only apply to those who, following the change, take out new subscriptions or re-subscribe (their previous subscriptions having expired) and specifically agree to the new fees / terms.

We reserve the right to charge you for any unauthorized use of your subscription by third parties.

Cancellation By You
You may cancel your subscription at any time by going to your account settings and selecting the "Cancel Subscription" link from the account management section on the Site.

Upon cancellation you will not be charged any further subscription fees. No payments already made will be refunded (wholly or partly) but you can of course use up any unused membership credit in the account.

Virtual Currency (Squibbles)
In certain of our games, we offer virtual currency for sale or, in our discretion, as free promotions. Virtual currency can be redeemed (ie used) to acquire certain digital goods / services, which we describe below as "Items". If you obtain virtual currency, you must check that it has been correctly credited to your account and tell us immediately if not.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE that virtual currency is subject to very important restrictions:

Virtual currency expires and will be deleted if it has not been redeemed within a certain period after acquisition so you should redeem it as soon as possible. The expiration period is whatever we specify when you acquire the virtual currency or, if we haven't specified a time limit, twelve months from acquisition.

Unless we say otherwise on our website, virtual currency can only be redeemed within the world of the game where you acquired it. We may at any time change or remove any or any type of Item for which virtual currency can be redeemed as well as the amount of virtual currency needed to acquire a particular Item. You may only redeem virtual currency for items on offer at the time of redemption.

Virtual currency does not have any inherent value and is not your own private property. You can only use them to acquire those Items which we decide in our discretion to offer in return for virtual currency. We do not provide any cash or refunds for virtual currency (except as required by law). Virtual currency is for your personal use only. You must not sell or transfer it or make it available to anyone else or attempt to do so or encourage anyone else to do any of these things.

We may impose additional restrictions concerning the acquisition or redemption of virtual currency. For example we may cap the amount of virtual currency which can be acquired or held or redeemed in any particular period or we may impose restrictions based on your country of residence.

We may restrict access to or delete virtual currency or Items: (1) as outlined under "Our Rights" above; (2) if the virtual currency was awarded in error; or (3) if a payment for virtual currency is charged back or otherwise cancelled or reversed.

We may at any time decide to end the entire virtual currency program for all or any of our games. Before we delete the unused virtual currency, we will provide at least 4-weeks notice to redeem it.
