GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC reserves the right to modify this Code of Conduct at any time.
1) Rules Related to Lord Names, Alliance Names and Forum Names.
Each user will select a lord name. Additionally, users may form "alliances" and such alliances will be required to choose a name for the alliance. When you choose a lord name, create an alliance, or otherwise create a label that can be seen by other players using the Game or the Service, you must abide by the following guidelines as well as the rules of common decency. If GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC finds such a label to be offensive or improper, it may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change the name, remove the label and corresponding chat room, and/or suspend or terminate your use of the Service. In particular, you may not use any name:
a. Belonging to another person with the intent to impersonate that person, including without limitation a "Liaison" or any other employee or agent of GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC; b. That incorporates vulgar language or which are otherwise offensive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable; c. Subject to the rights of any other person or entity without written authorization from that person or entity; d. That belongs to a popular culture figure, celebrity, or media personality; e. That is, contains, or is substantially similar to a trademark or service mark, whether registered or not; f. Belonging to any religious figure or deity; g.

2) Rules Related to "Chat" and Interaction With Other Users.
Communicating in-game or through the Lord of Ages Forums with other Users and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC representatives, whether by text, voice or any other method, is an integral part of the Game and the Service and is referred to here as "Chat." When engaging in Chat, you may not:
a. Transmit or post any content or language which, in the sole and absolute discretion of GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC, is deemed to be offensive, including without limitation content or language that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, nor may you use a misspelling or an alternative spelling to circumvent the content and language restrictions listed above; b. Carry out any action with a disruptive effect, such as intentionally causing the Chat screen to scroll faster than other users are able to read, or setting up macros with large amounts of text that, when used, can have a disruptive effect on the normal flow of Chat; c. Disrupt the normal flow of dialogue in Chat or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users including without limitation posting commercial solicitations and/or advertisements for goods and services available outside of the Lord of Ages game; d. Sending repeated unsolicited or unwelcome messages to a single user or repeatedly posting similar messages in a Chat area, including without limitation continuous advertisements to sell goods or services; e. Communicate or post any user's personal information in the Game, or on websites or forums related to the Game, except that a user may communicate his or her own personal information in a private message directed to a single user; f.

Impersonate any real person, including without limitation any "Liaison" or any other GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agent or employee, nor may you communicate in the Game in any way designed to make others believe that your message constitutes a server message or was otherwise posted by any GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agent or employee.
3) Rules Related to Game Play
Game play is what Lord of Ages is all about, and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC strictly enforces the rules that govern game play. GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC considers most conduct to be part of the Game, and not harassment, so player-killing the enemies of your alliance is considered a part of the Game. Because the Game is a "player vs. player" game, you should always remember to protect yourself in areas where others can attack you, rather than contacting GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC’s in-game customer service representatives for help when you have been killed by another player. Nonetheless, certain acts go beyond what is "fair" and are considered serious violations of these Terms of Service. Those acts include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:
a. Using or exploiting errors in design, features which have not been documented, and/or "program bugs" to gain access that is otherwise not available, or to obtain a competitive advantage over other players; b. Conduct prohibited in these Terms of Service; and c. Anything that GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC considers contrary to the "essence" of the Game.
This Agreement is effective until terminated. You may terminate this Agreement by terminating the Account and not accessing the Game Client. In the event that you terminate or breach this Agreement, you will forfeit your right to any and all payments you may have made. You agree and acknowledge that you are not entitled to any refund for any amounts which were pre-paid on behalf of the Account prior to any termination of this Agreement. GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC may terminate this Agreement with or without notice by terminating the Account.
THE GAME AND THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE GAME OR THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE GAME OR THE SERVICE ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT GAMEGON CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OF YOUR USER GENERATED CONTENT OR ANY INTERRUPTIONS OF SERVICE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ISP DISRUPTIONS, SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE FAILURES, OR ANY OTHER EVENT WHICH MAY RESULT IN A LOSS OF DATA OR A DISRUPTION OF SERVICE.
GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside the reasonable control of GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC's control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.

Additionally, you acknowledge that GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC is under no obligation to monitor Chat, and you engage in Chat at your own risk. 5) You are wholly responsible for the cost of all telephone and Internet access charges along with all necessary equipment, servicing, repair or correction incurred in maintaining connectivity to the Servers.
You acknowledge and agree that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement by you.

Such remedies shall not be the exclusive remedies for a breach by you, but shall be in addition to all other remedies available to GameGon at law or in equity.
14.1 Informal Negotiation
If a dispute arises between you and GAMEGON, our goal is to provide you with a neutral and cost effective means of resolving the dispute quickly. Accordingly, you and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other. GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC will send its notice to your billing address and email you a copy to the email address you have provided to us. You will send your notice to GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC, email@example.com ATTN: Legal Department.
14.2 Binding Arbitration.
If you and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, either you or GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC may elect to have the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and, where appropriate, the American Arbitration Association’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("American Arbitration Association Consumer Rules"), both of which are available that the American Arbitration Association website www.adr.org. The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the American Arbitration Association Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the American Arbitration Association Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
You and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
14.4 Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration.
You and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (1) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC’s intellectual property rights; (2) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (3) any claim for injunctive relief.
If you are a resident of the United States, any arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. For residents outside the United States, any arbitration shall be initiated in the County of New York, State of New York, United States of America. Any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County of New York, State of New York, United States of America, and you and GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
14.6 Governing Law.
Except as expressly provided otherwise, this Agreement shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the Laws of the United States of America and the law of the State of Delaware, without regard to choice of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. For our customers who access the Service from Canada, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, or New Zealand, other laws may apply if you choose not to agree to arbitrate as set forth above, and in such an event, shall affect this Agreement only to the extent required by such jurisdiction. In such a case, this Agreement shall be interpreted to give maximum effect to the terms and conditions hereof. If you access the Service from New Zealand, and are a resident of New Zealand, The New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act of 1993 ("Act") may apply to the Game and/or the Service as supplied by GAMEGON TECHNOLOGY HOLDINGS INC to you. If the Act applies, then notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, you may have rights or remedies as set out in the Act which may apply in addition to, or, to the extent that they are inconsistent, instead of, the rights or remedies set out in this Agreement. Those who choose to access the Service from locations outside of the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, or New Zealand do so on their own initiative contrary to the terms of this Agreement, and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
