AGREEMENT AND SERVICES
If you create a Beutl GmbH account within any Beutl GmbH Offering, you must provide truthful and accurate information to us in creating such account and promptly update this information if it changes. If Beutl GmbH has reasonable grounds to suspect that you have provided any information that is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Beutl GmbH may suspend or terminate your ability to use or access a Beutl GmbH Offering, and refuse any and all current or future use of or access to any or all Beutl GmbH Offerings (or any portion thereof).
Beutl GmbH reserves the right to limit the number of accounts a user can establish. This limit may change over time in our sole discretion.
When you access a Beutl GmbH Offering, send e-mails or electronically chat with Beutl GmbH, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices in the Beutl GmbH Offerings. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that Beutl GmbH provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Certain Beutl GmbH Offerings may provide you with the opportunity to license a variety of virtual items such as virtual currency, virtual goods, additional levels and content packs (“virtual items”) that can be used while playing the Beutl GmbH Offering. You may be required to pay a fee to obtain virtual items. When you use virtual items within a Beutl GmbH Offering, any virtual items that you have purchased will be deemed used before any virtual items that you have earned.
You have no property interest in any virtual items. Any purchase of virtual items, and virtual items accumulated through any applicable Beutl GmbH Offering membership benefits, are purchases of a limited, non-transferable, revocable license to use those virtual items within the applicable Beutl GmbH Offering. Virtual items may not be transferred or resold for commercial gain in any manner, including, without limitation, by means of any direct sale or auction service. Virtual Items may not be purchased or sold from any individual or other company via cash, barter or any other transaction. Virtual items have no monetary value, and cannot be used to purchase or use products or services other than within the applicable Beutl GmbH Offering. Virtual items cannot be refunded or exchanged for cash or any other tangible value.
Beutl GmbH may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate your virtual items in our sole discretion, and Beutl GmbH will have no liability to you or anyone for exercising those rights. In addition, all virtual items are unconditionally forfeited if your Beutl GmbH Offering account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Beutl GmbH’s sole discretion, or if Beutl GmbH discontinues any Beutl GmbH Offering or any portion or feature of any Beutl GmbH Offering.
If Beutl GmbH has reasonable grounds to suspect that you have provided any information that is inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Beutl GmbH may suspend or terminate your ability to use or access Social Games and refuse any and all current or future use of or access to Social Games (or any portion thereof).

You agree that your social networking site account information is accurate, current and complete. Social networking sites are “third party content and services” as described in the following paragraph.
THIRD PARTY LINKS AND THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND SERVICES
Any and all software, content and services (including advertising) within a Beutl GmbH Offering that are not owned by Beutl GmbH are “third party content and services.” Beutl GmbH acts merely as an intermediary service provider of, and accepts no responsibility or liability for, third party content and services. In addition and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, certain Beutl GmbH Offerings may include links to sites, such as social networking sites, operated by third parties, including advertisers and other content providers.

Any delinquent or unpaid accounts must be settled before Beutl GmbH may allow you to create any new or additional accounts. All virtual items are unconditionally forfeited if your Beutl GmbH account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Beutl GmbH’s sole discretion, or if Beutl GmbH discontinues any Beutl GmbH Offering that includes virtual items.

OTHER LEGAL TERMS
APPLICABLE LAW, JURISDICTION, AND VENUE
DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS “DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION” PROVISION CAREFULLY, BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH Beutl GmbH AND IT LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF.
THIS PROVISION PRECLUDES YOU FROM BRINGING ANY CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION AGAINST Beutl GmbH. IT ALSO PRECLUDES YOU FROM PARTICIPATING IN OR RECOVERING RELIEF UNDER ANY CURRENT OR FUTURE CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION AGAINST Beutl GmbH BY SOMEONE ELSE. IN ADDITION, ARBITRATION PRECLUDES YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL.
WHETHER TO AGREE TO ARBITRATION IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION. IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY SOLELY ON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, AS IT IS NOT INTENDED TO CONTAIN A COMPLETE EXPLANATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF ARBITRATION. YOU SHOULD TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND TO CONSULT WITH OTHERS REGARDING THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DECISION. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.
Authority of Arbitrator. With the exception of class procedures and remedies as discussed below under “Waiver of Class Relief,” the arbitrator shall have the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
Confidentiality. You and Beutl GmbH shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceedings and the arbitration award, including the arbitration hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
Allocation of Arbitration Fees. If you assert a Dispute as a consumer, you will only be required to pay arbitration fees of $250 of the fees charged by JAMS in connection with any arbitration under this section, and Beutl GmbH will bear all other costs charged by JAMS or the arbitrator, including any remaining JAMS Case Management Fee and all professional fees for the arbitrator’s services. You will still be responsible for paying your own attorneys’ fees.
WAIVER OF CLASS RELIEF. WHETHER THE DISPUTE IS HEARD IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND Beutl GmbH WILL NOT COMMENCE AGAINST THE OTHER A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. YOU AND Beutl GmbH ARE EACH WAIVING RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY PAST, PENDING, OR FUTURE CLASS ACTION OR ANY OTHER CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
If any portion of this section entitled “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
