Tactile Games ApS (in the following referred to as “Tactile”), is a Danish company with business registration number 32319882, having its address on Vestergade 33, baghuset, 1456 Copenhagen K, Denmark. These User Terms (in the following referred to as “Terms”) apply to any download, access or use of Tactile’s games (in the following referred to as “Games” in plural or “Game” in singular).

The Terms apply whether you download, access or use the Games on a computer, on a mobile device (including pads), on a console, on a website, or on any other device or platform. The Terms also apply to any other services (in the following referred to as “Services”) that we may provide in connection with the Games, including customer support, community channels, social media and our website.

The Terms constitute a legal agreement between you and Tactile and by downloading or using a Game or another Service, you agree to be bound by the Terms.

You also agree that you are at least 13 years old and that if you are between 13 years and 18 years old, your legal guardian has reviewed the Terms and Privacy Policy and agrees to the Terms and Privacy Policy and gives you permission to access and use our Games and other Services.

The Terms are made available via the platform or app store that you download or use our Games from (such as Google Play Store, the Apple App Store, Amazon App Store, Windows Phone Store), on any platform or website where you play our Games (such as www.facebook.com).

If you do not agree to the Terms (including any future updated version of them) you may not access or use the Games and Services, and you must cease to access and use of any of Tactile’s Games or other Services. Your continued use of our Games or other Services after the Terms have been updated will confirm your acceptance of the updated terms. If in the future we determine that an update to the Terms requires you to accept the updated terms, you may not continue to use the Games or other Services until you have accepted the updated terms. You can always access the updated version of the Terms at www.tactile.dk/legal/tos.html

If you are a resident of the United States of America you are subject to the below binding arbitration and waiver of class action obligations, detailed below in section 19, 20 and 21.

2 Accessing and using our Services

You agree to comply with the specific rules for each Game that you access or play. Those rules concern matters such as how to score points, how to control characters, what to do with resources etc. When made available, you find them, as well as guidelines for each Game, inside the Game itself.

You are responsible for your own internet connection. Please notice that by downloading or playing our Games or using our other Services, mobile charges may incur. We recommend that you use WIFI connection or that you ask your mobile operator or internet service provider what the charges will be.

3 Accounts

When you use our Games or other Services you may choose to create an account with Tactile. In some cases, you may be required to do so in order to download, access or play a Game. You may also use an account or log-in from a social network or other platform that our Games or other Services interact with. If you do create an account with Tactile or you use our Games or other Services from a social network or platform using your account and log-in details from there, you agree that you must take all steps necessary to protect your log-in details and keep them confidential. You agree that you may not give your log-in details to anyone else and that you may not allow anyone else to use your log-in details or your account.

You agree that we are entitled to assume that anyone logging into your account using your log-in details is either you or someone logging in with your explicit permission. If you do not keep your log-in details secret, or if you share your log-in details or account with someone else, you accept full responsibility for the consequences of this (including any unauthorized purchases). In such cases you agree to fully compensate us for any losses or harm that may result.

You agree that Tactile is not responsible to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of an unauthorized person or computer accessing your account or using our Services. Tactile does not accept any responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from its unauthorized use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.

Tactile reserves the right to delete an account that you have created with Tactile, if no activity is conducted by you in relation to the account for 120 or more days. In such event, you may no longer be able to access or use any Coins or Boosters (as defined below) associated with that account. Further, you will not be offered a refund.

Any account you have created with Tactile is personal and you are not entitled to transfer it to anyone.

You accept that if you delete an account that you have created with Tactile, or if we delete such account in accordance with these Terms, you will lose access to any data previously associated with your account including your progress through the Games, the level or score you have reached in the Games, any team you have connected with or created, any Coins or Boosters you have acquired and any communications made using our Services.

4 Coins and Boosters

Our Games may include virtual coins (in the following referred to as “Coins") and resources that helps you advance in the Games (in the following referred to as “Boosters”). Coins and Booster can be earned as part of the Game. Coins and Boosters can also be purchased in the Games using either Coins or using real money.

You understand and accept that once you have purchased Coins and Boosters, they have no monetary value and do not represent any stored value and cannot be exchanged for real money. You accept that Coins and Boosters may not be transferred to anyone else and you agree that you will not transfer or attempt to transfer any Coins or Boosters.

You also agree that although we use terms like “purchase”, you do not purchase a good; rather you purchase a license, which is personal, non-exclusive, limited and revocable.

You accept that all sales by us to you of Coins or Boosters are final and that we will not grant you refunds on any transaction once it has been completed. If you reside in the European Union you are in certain cases entitled to withdraw from distance purchases pursuant to European Union law or national law; However, when you purchase a license to use Coins or Boosters from us, you acknowledge that they are a digital service which is to be considered consumed immediately and that therefore – to the furthest degree permitted by law - your right of withdrawal has ceased at this point. A purchase of Coins or Boosters is considered completed at the time the Coins or Boosters have successfully been credited to your account.

If you chose not to connect your game play to Facebook, we may not be able to restore any Coins or other data associated with your Game to a different device if you lose your first device or if it is damaged. Because of this, any risk of loss of Coins or Boosters, which you have purchased, is transferred to you upon completion of the purchase. Any risk of loss of Coins or Boosters that you receive from us without making a purchase is transferred to you at the time the Coin or Booster is credited to your account. Other data related to your Games including your progress through Games, or the level or score you have reached in Games is transferred to you immediately at the time such data is generated.

Unless you have connected your Game to an account on Facebook it is not synced between different devices and we may not have a backup of your Game. This means that any risk of loss of this data relating to Coins or Boosters is transferred to you upon completion of the purchase and - in cases where the Coin or Booster is not purchased - at the time the Coin or Booster is credited or awarded to you.

The app store or social network you use when purchasing Games or making in-app purchases will provide you with an invoice. These invoices will be in electronic format only.

Tactile reserves the right to change or remove any Coins or Boosters without any liability to you.

At any time, Tactile may change the pricing for Coins and Boosters, both before and after you have downloaded a Game. We may also expand or limit the total amount of Boosters or Coins that can be purchased at once or held in your account. You are obliged not to purchase Coins or Boosters from any source which is not Tactile or authorized by Tactile.

Please notice that different platforms and social networks have different terms and conditions that apply to app purchases and in-app purchases on those networks and platforms. Consequently, they treat the purchase of Coins and Boosters differently. You should check with your platform or social network before making a purchase.

Unless it says otherwise, content available for purchase in any in-game store has the same age rating as the Game.

If we suspend or terminate your account, you may lose any Coins and Boosters that you have and Tactile will not make any refunds or otherwise compensate you for this loss.

The charge for Coins, Boosters or other virtual goods, Games or other items you can purchase will be as stated in the Game, app store or social network where you make the purchase, except in the case of obvious error. The charge is inclusive of all sales taxes and other charges. Depending on which app store, social network, bank, credit card or payment provider you use, additional charges may be issued; Tactile has no control over this and accept no liability in relation to it. If you are unsure whether you will be subject to such additional charges then you should check with the app store, social network, bank, credit card or payment provider before making a purchase. The app store, social network, bank, credit card or payment provider may have their own terms and conditions and you should make sure that you are in agreement with these before making any payments.

The other provisions of these Terms remain valid and enforceable. If a provision of these Terms cannot be interpreted as valid and enforceable under any applicable law, then it will be considered non-existing, but the rest of the Terms will be valid and enforceable.

If you have any problems or concerns regarding our Games and other Services you may contact the Tactile team at support@tactile.dk.

If the issue or concern cannot be solved even after you have contacted the Tactile team, and you wish to bring legal actions against Tactile, these Terms will be interpreted and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware if you are resident in the United States of America or by the laws of Denmark if you are resident somewhere else in the world.

19 Binding arbitration for residents in the United States of America

These provision regarding binding arbitration and class action apply to you if you are a resident in the United States of America or access, download and use our Games and other Services in the United States of America.

If you have any concerns or queries regarding our Games or other Services, our support team can be reached on support@tactile.dk. Most concerns by far are quickly and amicably resolved this way. We promise to use our best efforts to settle any dispute or disagreement amicably and in good faith through negotiations and you accept to do the same. Such negotiations are a precondition to either party initiating arbitration or a lawsuit.

If we and you do not reach an amicable solution within a period of 40 business days from the time informal dispute resolution has been pursued pursuant to the paragraph above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to formally resolve claims, subject to the provisions below.

Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms and the Privacy Policy (including its interpretation, formation, performance and breach), the parties' relationship with each other or your use of any of the Games or our other Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with the provisions of its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules or Streamlined Arbitrations Rules, as appropriate, however excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. This arbitration provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and the Federal Arbitration Act (the "FAA") will apply to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and formation of these Terms irrespective of any other choice of law provision contained in these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, has exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of the Terms, including any claim that all or any part of the Terms or the Privacy Policy is void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator is empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award will be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The JAMS Rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at http://www.jamsadr.com/ or by calling JAMS at (800) 352-5267. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and, to the extent applicable, the Consumer Minimum Standards, including the then-current limit on arbitration filing fees. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. You understand that without this mandatory provision, you would have had the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You also understand that in some instances the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

If you are a resident of the United States of America, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States of America convenient for you.

Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court that only asserts claims for patent infringement or invalidity, copyright infringement, moral rights violations, trademark infringement, or trade secret misappropriation. Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction. For the avoidance of doubt, claims related to the license granted to you for Games and other Services, are not exempt from the arbitration clause.

20 Binding class action waiver for residents in the United States of America

If you are a resident of the United States of America, you agree that any arbitration must be conducted in your individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and you expressly waive your right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis.

Thus, we agree that each of us may only bring claims against the other party arising out of or in connection with these Terms or the Privacy Policy only in your individual capacity or in our individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class action member in any purported class or representative proceeding.

If any court or arbitrator should determine that the class action waiver in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason, or if it should determine that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision above will be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties will be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.

21 Opt-out

You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in sections 19 and 20. above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: Tactile Games ApS, Vestergade 33, baghuset, 1456 Copenhagen K, Denmark. The notice must be sent within 45 business days of the earlier of 1) your first download of the applicable Game or 2) commencing use of our Services; otherwise you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of sections 19 and 20. Please note, that if you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.

We will provide 60 business days’ notice of any changes to sections 19 or 20 or this section 21. Changes will become effective on the 60th business day and will apply only to claims arising after the 60th business day.

22. JURISDICTION AND APPLICABLE LAW

If you are resident in the United States of America, any claims arising out of these Terms or related to these Terms, including their interpretation, claims for breach, claims for consumer protection, claims for unfair competition, tort claims and all other claims and parties’ relationship with each other as well as your use of our Games and other Services, will be subject to the laws of the State of Delaware, without reference to conflict of laws principles.

If the class action waiver in section 20 above is considered invalid or unenforceable by any court or arbitrator for any reason or if any court or arbitrator determines that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, all claims that may arise out of these Terms including the above mentioned claims (claims for interpretation, claims for breach, claims for consumer protection, claims for unfair competition, tort claims and all other claims) will be decided according to the laws of the state you were citizen of at the time you started using our Games and other Services that were subject to these Terms. By accepting these Terms you agree that federal courts in Los Angeles will have exclusive jurisdiction and venue over all claims which are subject to exceptions to the arbitration agreement described in the sections regarding binding arbitration and class action waiver above, or which are otherwise determined not to be arbitrable.

For residents outside the United States of America, the laws of Denmark will be applicable to interpretation of these Terms and to all claims for breach of the Terms, without reference to conflict of laws principles. To all other claims such as claims for consumer protection, claims for unfair competition, claims in negligence and tort claims, the laws of the country you are resident in will be applicable. The courts of Denmark will have jurisdiction over any dispute that arises between parties regarding these Terms unless the law in the country you are resident in allows you to choose the courts of that country for the said dispute.
