End User License Agreement
Last Updated: August 2021
TABLE OF CONTENTS
We want to be super upfront about a few important things: First, by using our services you are agreeing to arbitrate almost all disputes rather than have them heard in a court of law or by a jury. Second, unless otherwise stated herein and to the extent allowed by law, all purchases are non-refundable.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THIS EULA YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTIONS 22 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION. THIS EULA ALSO INCLUDES A LIMITATION ON DAMAGES THAT YOU CAN COLLECT FROM US THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THESE PROVISIONS.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS EULA, YOU MAY NOT INSTALL, COPY, OR USE OUR SERVICES. WE DO NOT NORMALLY OFFER REFUNDS, EXCEPT WHERE EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZED BY US (SEE SECTION 10 FOR EXCEPTIONS) OR WHERE REFUNDS ARE REQUIRED UNDER LOCAL LAW.
You are now reading our End User License Agreement (“EULA”) which is a legal agreement between you and Proxima Beta Pte. Limited (“we”, “us”, “our”, as appropriate) regarding the Services you use from us. “Services” means collectively, and sometimes individually, the following: (a) each of our Games, and (b) any websites, software or other services we provide with or in support of the Game, whether or not they are installed or used on a computer, console, or a mobile device. “Game” means our game that you download and access that is subject to this EULA, regardless of where you download and/or access it, and any documentation, software, updates, Virtual Goods and Content (each defined below) included in it.
We’ve tried to be straightforward in this EULA and if you have any questions feel free to send us a note at email@example.com (our “Support Email Address”). You’ll notice that we added some text in italics throughout the EULA to make it easier to read however this text is provided for guidance only, and does not form part of the EULA.
Our EULA may also contain country-specific addenda that apply to you based on the jurisdiction in which you reside. To see additional terms applicable to you (which constitute part of this Agreement and may supersede these terms), please check country-specific addenda below.
If you are a resident of Japan, then please also see schedule A-1 for further terms.
You’ll notice some capitalized terms in this EULA. They’re called “defined terms,” and we use them so we don’t have to repeat the same language again and again, and to make sure that the use of these terms is consistent throughout the EULA. We’ve included the defined terms throughout because we want it to be easy for you to read them in context.
Some Services may be available (or only available) through accessing (or downloading from) a third party platform or store, including but not limited to, Facebook, the Epic Games Store, Steam game platform, the Google Play Store and Apple App Store (each, an “App Store”). Your use of the Services is also governed by any applicable agreements you have with any App Store (the “App Store Agreement(s)”). In the event of a conflict between any other App Store Agreement(s), from which you acquire one of our Games, and this EULA with respect to your use of the Services, this EULA will take priority.
The Services we offer have certain age restrictions. Others may require an outside account. When you give us information, you need to make sure it stays up to date. Also, sharing your account with others may cause suspension of your account.
As long as you agree to this EULA (and as long as the EULA isn’t terminated—see Section 21), we grant you permission to access and use our Services. If you break the rules or can’t agree, we can’t let you play. Please ensure your system and devices meet the minimum requirements for the Game. Also, if you suffer from an epileptic condition, please talk to a doctor before playing the Game.
You agree not to do any of the following with respect to the Services, as determined by us, as applicable:
If you encounter another user who is violating any of these rules, please report this activity to us using the “Report Abuse” function in the relevant Game or part of the Service, if available, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Service including our Content and Games is owned by us or our licensors. Our Services may let you upload, post and store photos and other content that you own. You retain your ownership of this content, to which we take a license.
Although we are not obligated to monitor access to or use of the Services or to review or edit any Content, we have the right to do so for the purpose of operating and publishing the Services, to ensure compliance with this EULA, to protect the health or safety of anyone that we believe may be threatened, to protect our legal rights and remedies, to report a crime or offensive behavior, or to comply with applicable law. We may (but don’t have to) remove or disable access to any Content, at any time and without notice. We may (but don’t have to) investigate violations of this EULA or conduct that affects the Services.
Some of the cool features we offer may need you to pay to fully experience. We need special permission to charge your payment method. These features are owned by us.
Subject to applicable law (including as described in each country-specific addendum below), or App Store policy, (i) all Games, Virtual Goods and Game Currency remain our property, have no monetary value and are not redeemable, refundable, or eligible for any other alternate remedy for any “real world” money or anything of monetary value, unless they are defective, unavailable, or do not perform in accordance with the specifications we provide; (ii) we may revoke your license to such Games, Virtual Goods and/or Game Currency at any time consistent with this EULA without notice or liability to you; and (iii) except where the law in your jurisdiction provides a right of withdrawal that cannot be waived by contract, by purchasing and using any Games, Virtual Goods and/or Game Currency, you hereby waive your right to withdraw from your agreement to purchase the applicable Game, Virtual and/or Game Currency and you agree that you will therefore not be eligible to receive a refund (or any alternative remedy) in relation to such Game, Virtual Good and/or Game Currency. Additionally, you hereby agree that any withdrawal right expires immediately upon purchase and delivery of your Game, Virtual Good and/or Game Currency, unless the law in your jurisdiction provides otherwise. This section does not affect your statutory rights.
From time to time we may offer a beta version of one of our Services (a “Beta”). As the name implies, Betas are not commercial launch versions, are not guaranteed to work properly, and may make other parts of your system not work properly as well. For the license granted to you in Section 6 above to extend to the Beta (meaning, for you to have permission to use the Beta), you acknowledge and agree to the following terms in addition to the rest of this EULA:
If a Game is made available to you via an App Store, or if you play a Game on a console, then additional terms may apply.
Where a Game is made available to you via an App Store (whether on your mobile device or console) you acknowledge and agree to the terms in Exhibit B-1 with respect to such Game.
We’d love to hear your feedback, good or bad. It helps us improve! But if you give us feedback, we need to be free to use it how we want and without paying you.
We welcome your feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services (“Feedback”). You can submit Feedback by emailing us at email@example.com or via the functionality of the Services (if available). If you provide us with any Feedback, you hereby grant us the following license: a non-exclusive, transferable, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, distribute copies of, publicly perform, publicly display and otherwise exploit the Feedback for any purpose and in any country. This license does not lapse or expire even if we do not exercise our rights under this license within a period of one year. If you have rights in the Feedback that cannot be licensed to us under applicable law (such as moral and other personal rights), you hereby waive and agree not to assert those rights. You understand and agree that you are freely giving your Feedback, that we don’t have to use it, and that you will not be compensated in any way for your Feedback. You represent and warrant that you have rights in any Feedback that you provide to us sufficient to grant us and other affected parties the rights described above, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy.
In posting such Feedback, you warrant that your feedback is in compliance with this EULA and you will not use obscene or offensive language or submit any material that is, or may potentially be, defamatory, abusive or hateful, an invasion of anyone's privacy, harmful to other users, or breach the applicable laws.
We respect copyright law and expect our users to do the same. It’s our policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances Game Accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are believed to be repeatedly infringing the rights of copyright holders.
Outside links are for your convenience, but we can’t guarantee them.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or resources. We provide these links only as a convenience and are not responsible for the content, products or services on or available from those websites or resources or links displayed on such websites. You acknowledge sole responsibility for and assume all risk arising from, your use of any third-party websites or resources.
This is a reminder that you’re responsible for any data-related charges that you may incur for using our Services.
You are responsible for all data-related charges that you may incur for using our Services, including, without limitation, mobile, text-messaging, and data charges. You should understand or ask your service provider what charges you may incur before using the Services.
When we update this EULA, you need to agree to the updated version to keep using our Services. We also need the freedom to update any part of the Services whenever we see fit, so we are letting you know we can do so at any time.
We may (but don’t have to) update this EULA at any time whenever we think there is a need. Subject to applicable law, if we do so, you will be prompted to agree to the updated EULA upon your next access to the Services or when the updated EULA is otherwise communicated to you. You must agree to these updates to continue using the Services.
We may provide patches, updates, or upgrades to the Services that must be installed in order for you to continue to use the Services. We may update the Services remotely without notifying you, and you hereby consent to us applying such patches, updates, and upgrades. If your device can prevent automatic updates, you may not be able to access the Services until you manually update the Services yourself on your device. We may modify, suspend, discontinue, substitute, replace, or limit your access to any aspect of the Services at any time. Subject to applicable law, you acknowledge that any character data, game progress, game customization or other data related to your use of any particular Game and other elements unique to the Services may cease to be available to you at any time without notice from us, including, without limitation, after a patch, update, or upgrade is applied by us. You agree that we do not have any maintenance or support obligations with respect to the Services.
Subject to applicable law, we may change the price of the Services, Games, Virtual Goods, Game Currency or Content, at any time, for any reason, without notice or liability to you.
We don’t make any guarantees about the Services.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE COMPANY PARTIES EXPLICITLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, QUIET ENJOYMENT AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. The Company Parties make no warranty that the Services will meet your requirements or be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. The Company Parties make no warranty regarding the quality, accuracy, timeliness, truthfulness, completeness or reliability of the Services.
This section limits what you can recover from us in a dispute.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW THE COMPANY PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY:
ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS EULA OR THE SERVICES, OR THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE OR LACK OF FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SERVICES, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF ONE OF A COMPANY PARTY’S FAULT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, INDEMNITY, PRODUCT LIABILITY, BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE AND EVEN IF THAT COMPANY PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FURTHER, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE COMPANY PARTIES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS EULA OR THE SERVICES WILL NOT EXCEED: (A) THE TOTAL AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID (IF ANY) OR ARE PAYABLE BY YOU TO US FOR THE PARTICULAR GAME OR SERVICE IN QUESTION DURING THE SIX (6) MONTHS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENTS GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY; OR (B) IF (A) DOES NOT APPLY, FIFTY DOLLARS ($50 USD). THESE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS REGARDING DAMAGES APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE COMPENSATION AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND US.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, some countries, states, provinces or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation of liability as stated above, so the above terms may not apply to you. Instead, in such jurisdictions, the foregoing exclusions and limitations will apply to the maximum extent permitted by the laws of such jurisdictions. Also, you may have additional legal rights in your jurisdiction, and nothing in this EULA will prejudice such rights that you may have as a consumer of the Services.
If someone sues us based on your breach of this EULA or your access/use of the Services, you agree to defend us or pay for our defense in that lawsuit.
You agree to indemnify (in other words, compensate for all and any losses incurred), pay the defense costs of, and hold the Company Parties and their employees, officers, directors, agents, contractors, and other representatives harmless from all claims, demands, actions, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, costs, and expert witnesses’ fees) that arise out of or in any way are connected with: (a) your access to or use of the Services; or (b) any claim that, if true, would constitute a breach by you of this EULA. You agree to reimburse us for any payments made or loss suffered by us, whether in a court judgment or settlement, based on any matter covered by this Section 20.
We reserve the right to terminate this EULA as we see fit in accordance with the applicable law. Reasons we may terminate this EULA include, but are not limited to: if we wind down our game offerings in your region, if you violate this EULA, or if the App Store terminates your App Store Account.
To the fullest extent consistent with applicable law, we may suspend, modify or terminate your access to and use of the Services, including any Game, Virtual Goods, and Content, with no liability or notice to you in the event that (a) we cease providing the Game to similarly situated users generally; (b) you breach any terms of this EULA (including the App Store Agreement(s) and our other policies specified in this EULA); (c) the owner of the applicable App Store terminates your App Store Account; or (d) we otherwise deem it necessary to suspend or modify your access to and use of the Services or terminate this EULA in our sole discretion. You may also terminate this EULA by deleting and uninstalling the Game on any and all of your devices or by deleting your App Store Account. A suspension or modification of your access to and use of the Services will result in your inability to access and use some or all features of the Services, as determined by us in our sole discretion. Upon any termination of this EULA, the rights granted to you will automatically terminate, you may no longer exercise any of those rights or this EULA. Subject to applicable law, we may, in our sole discretion, provide continued access to and use of the Services prior to such termination.
Where required by applicable law, termination of this EULA does not require a court decision to effect termination or a notice served by a court bailiff as a prerequisite to termination.
Except to the extent required by law, all payments and fees are non-refundable under all circumstances, regardless of whether or not this EULA has been terminated.
The following sections will survive termination of this EULA: 8 (first two sentences only), 13, 19, 20, 22 through 25, and this sentence of Section 21.
You are agreeing to Laws of Singapore. If there is a dispute between us, we agree it’ll be resolved through arbitration, with each of us paying our own costs.
You cannot transfer or assign this EULA to anyone else.

Notwithstanding the title of this Section, we may freely assign or transfer this EULA without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, this EULA will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
This EULA is our whole agreement (no outside promises). The official version is English. If parts of this EULA don’t apply, the rest remains as much as possible. If we don’t enforce part of this EULA, it doesn’t mean we won’t in the future or we won’t enforce our other rights. Also, except for App Stores, no one other than you or us can enforce this EULA.
If you have any questions about this EULA or the Game, please contact us at our Support Email Address.
