5. Product and Service Information.
The Site provides users with information regarding current and upcoming Tycoon Systems products and services and promotional offers. Product and service descriptions and promotional offers on the Site may vary from time to time. Due to differences in equipment and other technical issues, as well as the possibility of typographical error, product and service descriptions and promotional offers may not be complete, current or accurate. Tycoon Systems cannot guarantee that any particular product or service or promotional offer displayed on the Site will be available at any time or will ever be made available at all. Certain products or services or promotional offers may, without notice, be subject to restrictions, whether as to quantity, minimum age requirements, or otherwise.

6. Your Information and Privacy Considerations.
In order to take advantage of the full capabilities of the Site, such as the participation in certain special offerings and promotions, and to receive e-mailed information and announcements, you may be asked to send us information about yourself or others. We respect your privacy and the privacy of others, and we will, of course, endeavor to take care of any information you supply to us. If you believe, however, that any such information is so private to you or to any other person that possible disclosure would be embarrassing or otherwise inappropriate, we ask that you do not supply that information, even if it means that certain of this Site’s capabilities would therefore be rendered unavailable to you or any other person. We do require, however, that the information you elect to provide to us be true, accurate, current and complete, and we request that you update that information as necessary.

Mindful of the foregoing, and solely for the purpose of patching and updating the Site and the Tycoon Systems services associated with it, you hereby grant us permission to (a) upload game-file information from the game directory and (b) download game files to you. Data about you or supplied by you may be stored and may reside on our servers. Any communications that you make through the Site or instrumentalities associated with it (including, but not limited to, messages solely directed at another player or group of players), may be monitored by our personnel. You consent to the monitoring of those communications and agree that you have no expectation of privacy in them. You acknowledge and agree that we may share information concerning your communications with us and other end-users, as well as your Site usage, including play results, with our licensors, licensees and agents.

We reserve the right to use “cookies,” which are small computer files we would thereby transfer to your computer’s hard drive to allow us to monitor Site usage. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies, but if you choose to decline cookies, performance of the Site might be adversely affected.

Websites linked to the Site are likely governed by their own policies. Tycoon Systems is not responsible for those policies and expressly disclaims any liability relating to any aspect of any such linked site.

If you request any technical support, you consent to our remote access and review for the express purpose of providing that support and for debugging.

You agree that we may communicate with you via e-mail and any similar technology for any purpose relating to the Site and any associated Tycoon Systems service, as well as services or software that may in the future be provided by us or on our behalf.
Use of the game services associated with the Site is available solely to adults and, in their discretion, their minor children. If you are a minor, a parent or guardian must complete the registration process and accept the end-user license agreement and subscription agreement; that person shall thereby automatically accept full responsibility for all your obligations under this agreement. Any person who agrees to the end-user license and subscription agreement shall have automatically represented and warranted to us that he or she is an adult and that he or she shall thereby have accepted this agreement under that condition. Parents and guardians may so accept for minors; however, they shall at all times be liable for the activities of those minors.

7. Disclosure of Content Monitoring.
As an express exception to the foregoing, Tycoon Systems reserves the right to disclose information gathered from the Site and any Tycoon Systems service associated with it if required to do so by law or if done in a good-faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal requirements, to respond to claims that any information violates the rights of third parties, or to protect the rights, Site and Tycoon Systems-service benefits, property or personal safety of Tycoon Systems, Site users or the public. You therefore authorize us to disclose any information about you to effectuate that purpose as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.

8. No Warranty.

By so disclosing, posting or submitting any such material, you grant to Tycoon Systems and its affiliates a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, edit, publish, translate, rework, distribute and display that material without compensation or notice and, in the sole discretion of Tycoon Systems, without acknowledgment of source. You also agree to permit any other end-user to access, view, download, transmit, store and reproduce content disclosed, submitted or posted on the Site in accordance with the terms and conditions of these terms of use.
