Very few people like reading licence agreements, so I’ve tried to keep this as short as possible.
Any copy of The Moonstone Equation (“the Game”) and accompanying documentation is licensed and not sold. This Software Product is protected by copyright laws and treaties, as well as laws and treaties related to other forms of intellectual property. Andy Buck (“me” or “I”), his affiliates, and suppliers owns all intellectual property rights in the Game. The Licensee’s (“you” or “your”) license to download, use or copy the Game is subject to these rights, to all applicable laws, and to all the terms and conditions of this End User License Agreement (“Agreement”).
YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT BY DOWNLOADING THE GAME OR BY INSTALLING, USING, COPYING OR CHANGING THE GAME. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU MUST NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE GAME.
What that means
You paid money (or someone paid for you) so that you can play the Game – thank you! This purchase gives you a license to install, play, and use the Game on your personal computer. This permission is granted to you for your personal use only; you cannot sell or rent the Game (or any of it’s contents) and you cannot sell or rent license keys for the Game (or any of it’s contents).
Updates and Liability
I might make upgrades, updates or patches (all called “updates”) available from time to time, but I don’t have to. I’m also not obliged to provide ongoing support or maintenance of the Game. Of course, I hope to continue to release updates (and fixes) for the Game, I just can’t guarantee that I will do so.
LIABILITY AND GOVERNING LAW
The terms of this EULA do not affect any legal (statutory) rights that you may have under the law that applies to you for the Game. You might have certain rights which the law that applies to you says cannot be excluded. Nothing said in these terms will affect those legal rights, even if I say something which sounds like it contradicts your legal rights. That’s what is meant when I say “subject to applicable law”.
SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAW, WHEN YOU GET A COPY OF THE GAME, IT IS PROVIDED “‘AS IS”‘. UPDATES ARE ALSO PROVIDED “‘AS IS”‘. THIS MEANS THAT I AM NOT MAKING ANY PROMISES TO YOU ABOUT THE STANDARD OR QUALITY OF THE GAME, OR THAT THE GAME WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IT MAY CAUSE. YOU BEAR THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO ITS QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE. YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT THERE MAY BE BUGS. FEEL FREE TO NOTIFY ME ABOUT A POTENTIAL BUG.
With a few specific exceptions (detailed below) You may not incorporate, modify, or otherwise use the Moonstone Equation logo (or associated assets and images ) in any content you may create. The exception to this is that you may use any of the assets provided in the Press area of the Game website in any video or press content you create (e.g., for YouTube or Twitch streams or blogs). In these specific cases the assets must be used without colour or aspect adjustments or embellishments of any kind. Some limited (40%) cropping is acceptable.
Some last legal stuff.
This EULA is effective as of September 27, 2016. I reserve the right to make changes to this EULA at any time, and your continued use of the Game constitutes acceptance of the EULA as it may exist whenever you play or otherwise use the Game. This Agreement represents the complete agreement between you and me concerning the Game, and replaces all prior agreements and understandings between you and me regarding your use of the Game. If a dispute involving your use of the Game arises, we agree to resolve it using UK law.
