10. Payments. Pricing. Subscriptions
General payment terms and conditions
Please, be informed that certain Software including without limitation the types of Software determined below may be offered to you for purchase via LTG Services. For the avoidance of doubt the word “purchase” or any related terms are referred solely to the transfer of certain license rights in the Software or any other digital item hereunder. LTG does not process any payments for such purchases by itself. Any and all payments, refunds and other transactions will be processed by the authorized LTG Partner or another designated third party (“merchant”) and any purchases will be offered by such merchants. You may be required to create an account with such merchant, and by doing so, you are agreeing to comply with the merchant terms of service and other legal agreements. You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity, business and tax information and your bank information when you register with the merchant. Payment terms and conditions, currency conversion, refund and any other financial terms will be determined in the applicable agreement between you and the merchant. Please, carefully read any legal information related to any transactions between you and such merchant before accepting the offer and/or making any purchase. LTG does not control merchant Services, and is not liable for the above-mentioned and any other third-party services, for any transaction you may enter into with them or for what they do. All related claims, refund and other requests are to be filed to the merchant directly.
Pre-orders. A pre-order is a purchase of a Software which will be delivered at a later time, as the Software is still in the process of being developed. The pre-order stage is defined by the lack of access to playable content. As soon as the playable/usable content is provided, the Software is redefined as "Access to the Software".
Subscriptions. A subscription is a Software received on a recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.). As long as the subscription is paid for, the product is available to the Customer. The Customer can manage the subscription in order to cancel or activate it.
Access to the Software. An access to the Software is a purchase of the Software where access is granted upon payment. The access can be granted via different means such as an activation key, a link to the launcher in the game account, an automatic activation of the account, etc. Different types of access can be sold. As a rule, an access is indefinite and does not expire. However, the Software may offer other in-game purchases such as currency, items, subscriptions, etc.
In-Game Currency and In-Game Items. The Software may enable Customers to (i) use a fictional virtual currency as a medium of exchange exclusively within the Software ("in-game currency") and (ii) gain access to (and certain limited rights to use) virtual goods within the Software ("in-game goods"). In-game currency and in-game items (together "Virtual Items") are pieces of a software code processed on an electronic computing machine as in-game objects that the Customer acquires while performing certain actions within the Software or for a fee. Virtual Items can exclusively be used within the Software; they shall be deemed an integral part of the Software and shall be subject to the license granted to the Customer herein. Virtual Items have no real value and cannot be exchanged for non-game ("real") currency or non-game ("real") property. Any in-game currency balance shown in your Account does not entitle you to its exchange value in US Dollars or any other real currency, unless stated otherwise. Any trading of Virtual Items that you undertake within the Software or on an independent Virtual Currency exchange is at your sole option, discretion and risk. Your purchase of Virtual Items is final and not refundable if otherwise is not stipulated in the applicable merchant’s refund policy.
Premium Account. A premium account is a one-time or recurring purchase of certain in-game features. A premium account may include but is not limited to special items, in-game currency, special avatars, boosters, access to restricted features, etc. Usually several types of products are included in one purchase.
NFT Content. You also may be offered to purchase certain NFT Content subject to separate NFT Terms, which will deemed as part of these Terms to the extent that it does not conflict with it.
The purchase price will include the price of the Software plus any applicable taxes in effect at the time of purchase and based on the country data you provide on the download page. Please, be aware that the final cost of your purchase will be determined in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions of the merchant. We kindly ask you to carefully read any legal information related to any transactions between you and such merchant before accepting any offer and/or making any purchase and transactions.
11. Updates to the Services

You agree that the aggregate liability of LTG to you for any and all claims arising out of or relating to the use of, access to, or any inability to use or access the Services is limited to $150.

14. Applicable Law, Dispute Resolution
(a) Governing Law
These Terms of Services and any part of the Complete Terms and their interpretation, as well as any disputes that arise hereunder, shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California, USA, excluding its conflicts-of-law rules and without giving effect to any principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. The U. N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly disclaimed.
You expressly agree that for claims and disputes not subject to the arbitration agreement below, exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or action arising out of or relating to these Terms of Services and any part of the Complete Terms shall be determined by final and binding arbitration in Los Angeles, California, before a single arbitrator. You and LTG agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitration shall be resolved by arbitration by one arbitrator (“Arbitrator”) in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, Applicable Law and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website at www.adr.org, and the provisions of these Terms. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The place of arbitration shall be Los Angeles, California, USA. The cost of any arbitration shall be shared equally by the parties, but the Arbitrator shall be authorized to enter, as part of the award to a party, an amount equal to reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs related to the arbitration, and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The Arbitrator may award equitable relief. The Arbitrator’s decision(s) shall be final and conclusively binding on the Parties, and the judgment upon such award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The Arbitrator shall make a decision in writing, and shall provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. The Arbitrator must follow the Applicable Law, and any award may be challenged if the Arbitrator fails to do so. YOU AND LTG AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. The Arbitrator shall not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims and shall not preside over any type of representative or class proceeding. The Arbitrator may only award declaratory or injunctive relief in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If this specific subsection is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void.
(b) Limitation of Time to File Claims
Any cause of action or claim you may have arising out of or relating to the Complete Terms must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues; otherwise such cause of action or claim is permanently barred.
Most concerns can be resolved by use of our LTG Help Center [email protected] or with your personal manager designated by LTG. If we are unable to resolve your concerns, and a dispute remains between you and LTG, this section explains how we agree to resolve it.
A party that intends to seek arbitration must first send written notice to the other party of its intent to arbitrate («Notice»). The Notice to LTG should be sent by any of the following means: (i) via electronic mail to [email protected]; or (ii) by sending the Notice by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to Long Tale Games LLC, at the address: 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, DE 19808, United States. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought. If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or LTG may commence an arbitration proceeding.
if any part of the Complete Terms is not enforceable, the rest of the Complete Terms still applies and is binding and any unenforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible.
LTG may assign or delegate these Terms of Services or the Complete Terms, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with and without your consent.

(d) No Waiver
The failure of LTG to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms of Service or any part of the Complete Terms or failure to exercise any right under them shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of LTG’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
The express waiver by LTG of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms of Services or any part of the Complete Terms does not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
Except as expressly and specifically set forth in these Terms of Services or any part of the Complete Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers, or other acts or omissions by LTG shall be deemed a modification of these Terms of Services or any part of the Complete Terms nor legally binding, unless documented in physical writing, hand signed by you and a duly appointed representative of LTG.
