Third Party Content and Links to Other Sites
Rainmaker Games collects game play information from game operators. Users can create and join challenges and compete over a period of time with other players. The Services provide a leaderboard that shows how everyone did, so your game play will be available for viewing by other users. The Services automatically track participants’ live match data from the game’s platform via an API data stream. Game operators are unaffiliated with us, and there are inherent risks that come from using a third party’s data, including inaccuracies and outages. There is also risk that a game operator will discontinue a game or stop providing Rainmaker Games API data stream access. We are not responsible for the actions, omissions, or errors of the game operators.
We operate social media pages on third party networks and have social media icons on our website. Social media providers are unaffiliated with us, and we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of social media providers. Social media providers have their own terms and privacy policies, and we encourage you to review those policies whenever you visit their websites or interact with their platforms.

The Services, Rainmaker Games, its employees, agents, affiliates, licensees, and web hosting services are not responsible for these transmissions or for the release of such information by others about you.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend (if requested by Rainmaker Games), and hold harmless Rainmaker Games, its subsidiaries, parent corporation and affiliates, and all of their respective officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, attorneys, licensors, representatives, licensees, and suppliers (collectively, the “Rainmaker Games Parties”) from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, judgments, investigations, fines, penalties, settlements, interest, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), or other costs (collectively, “Claims”) that directly or indirectly arise from or are related to any claim, suit, action, demand, or proceeding made or brought against any of the Rainmaker Games Parties, or on account of the investigation, defense, or settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with: (a) your access to or use of our Services, or your conduct or activities in connection with the Services, (b) your Submissions, Feedback, or other User content; (c) your violation or alleged violation of these Terms; (d) your violation or alleged violation of any laws, rules, regulations, orders, codes, statutes or ordinances of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities in connection with your use of our Services or your conduct in connection with our Services; (e) information or material transmitted through you or through your account or devices, even if not submitted by you, that violates, infringes, or misappropriates the rights of another (including but not limited to intellectual property rights, publicity or privacy rights); or (f) any misrepresentation made by you. You agree to promptly notify the Rainmaker Games Parties of any third-party Claims, cooperate with the applicable Rainmaker Games Parties in defending such Claims and pay all fees, costs, and expenses associated with defending such Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Rainmaker Games Parties retain the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Claims and have the exclusive right to settle such Claims. You will not settle any Claims without, in each instance, the prior written consent of the relevant Rainmaker Games Party. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Rainmaker Games or the other Rainmaker Games Parties.

Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY OF THE RAINMAKER GAMES PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY, OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, ECONOMIC, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF PROFITS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING BY RAINMAKER GAMES. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY EVEN IF ANY OF THE EVENTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES GIVING RISE TO SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE, AND EVEN IF THE RAINMAKER GAMES PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES.
EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, ANY OF THE RAINMAKER GAMES PARTIES IS FOUND TO BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES WHICH ARISE OUT OF OR ARE IN ANY WAY CONNECTED TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE RAINMAKER GAMES PARTIES FOR ANY AND ALL SUCH CLAIMS, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, IS LIMITED TO THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID, IF ANY, TO USE OUR SERVICES HEREUNDER.
BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MAY BE WAIVING RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS THAT ARE AT THIS TIME UNKNOWN OR UNSUSPECTED. ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE TO WAIVE THE BENEFIT OF ANY LAW THAT OTHERWISE MIGHT LIMIT YOUR WAIVER OF SUCH CLAIMS.
THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS SET FORTH IN THE FOREGOING SECTIONS APPLY REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE LIABILITY IS BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, BREACH OF WARRANTIES, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so these limitations may not apply to you.
Term and Termination
These Terms shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services. WITHOUT LIMITING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THESE TERMS, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION AND WITHOUT NOTICE OR LIABILITY, TO DENY ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES (INCLUDING BLOCKING CERTAIN IP ADDRESSES) TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY REASON OR NO REASON, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTY, OR COVENANT CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS OR OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW OR REGULATION. WE MAY TERMINATE YOUR USE OF OR PARTICIPATION IN THE SERVICES OR DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT AND ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT YOU POSTED AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT WARNING, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.
If we terminate or suspend your account for any reason, you are prohibited from registering and creating a new account under your name or email, a fake name or email, or a borrowed name or email, or the name or email of any third party, even if you may be acting on behalf of the third party. In addition to terminating or suspending your account, we reserve the right to take appropriate legal action, including without limitation pursuing civil, criminal, and injunctive redress.
You also agree that any violation by you of these Terms will cause irreparable harm to Rainmaker Games for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to Rainmaker Games obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that Rainmaker Games deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Rainmaker Games may have at law or in equity.
Dispute Resolution; Arbitration
Please read the following arbitration provisions in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Rainmaker Games and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement
You agree that any dispute, controversy, or claim arising in any way from your access or use of the Services, any products sold or distributed through the Services, or these Terms (“Dispute”), will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, including threshold questions of the arbitrability of such dispute, controversy, or claim except that you or Rainmaker Games may seek injunctive or equitable relief in a court of proper jurisdiction if the claim relates to intellectual property infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Dispute resolution process
You and Rainmaker Games both agree to engage in good-faith efforts to resolve Disputes prior to either party initiating an arbitration. You must initiate this dispute resolution process by sending a letter describing the nature of your claim and desired resolution (“Dispute Notice”) (when sent to Rainmaker Games, you must send the Dispute Notice to email@example.com). No later than 15 days after the receiving party receives the Dispute Notice, both parties must meet and confer personally, by telephone, or by videoconference (hereinafter “Conference”) to discuss the Dispute and attempt in good faith to reach a mutually beneficial outcome that avoids the expenses of further proceedings. If you are represented by counsel, your counsel may participate in the Conference as well, but you agree to fully participate in the Conference. Likewise, if Rainmaker Games is represented by counsel, its counsel may participate in the Conference as well, but Rainmaker Games agrees to have a company representative fully participate in the Conference. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines shall be tolled while the parties engage in the informal dispute resolution process and Conference required by this Section. If the parties do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days after the receiving party receives the Dispute Notice, either party may commence arbitration, file an action in small claims court, or file a claim for injunctive or equitable relief in a court of proper jurisdiction for matters relating to intellectual property infringement, if the claims qualify.
Arbitration rules and forum:
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and the JAMS Consumer Minimum Standards then in effect; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and the JAMS Consumer Minimum Standards then in effect. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS filing, administrative, hearing, or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Rainmaker Games will pay such fees for you if you complied with the dispute resolution process set forth above. In addition, Rainmaker Games will reimburse all such JAMS filing, administrative, hearing, or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless (a) you have initiated the arbitration claim, in which case you will still be required to pay the lesser of $250 or the maximum amount permitted under the JAMS Rules for arbitration claims initiated by you, (b) the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous, (c) you did not comply with the dispute resolution process set forth above, or (d) your use of the Services were for commercial or business purposes rather than as a consumer. You are still responsible for all additional costs that you incur in the arbitration, including without limitation, fees for attorneys or expert witnesses. The location of the arbitration will be in Austin, Texas, U.S.A., unless you choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or videoconference, so that the arbitration is reasonably convenient to you. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator
The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any Dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow these Terms as a court would; provided, however, the arbitrator will not have the power to award punitive damages, treble damages, or any other damages which are not compensatory, even if permitted under any applicable law.
Waiver of Jury Trial
YOU AND RAINMAKER GAMES HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
The parties agree that the arbitration shall be kept confidential. The existence of the arbitration, any nonpublic information provided in the arbitration, and any submissions, orders or awards made in the arbitration (together, the “Confidential Information”) shall not be disclosed to any non-party except the tribunal, the administrator of the arbitration, the parties, their counsel, experts, witnesses, accountants and auditors, insurers and reinsurers, and any other person necessary to the conduct of the arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that disclosure may be required to fulfill a legal duty, protect or pursue a legal right, or enforce or challenge an award in bona fide legal proceedings.
Survival of Agreement
This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Rainmaker Games, and any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if Rainmaker Games makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing to Rainmaker Games at firstname.lastname@example.org, in which case only the unchanged provisions of this Arbitration Agreement will govern with respect to you.
Governing Law and Alternate Venue
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, United States (without regard to conflict of law rules or principles of California law, or any other jurisdiction that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction). For any dispute, controversy, or claim between the parties that is not subject to arbitration as set forth in the Arbitration Agreement in the preceding Section, other than proceedings seeking injunctive or equitable relief if the claim relates to intellectual property infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights, the parties agree that the federal and state courts in Austin, Texas will be the exclusive forums for brining any action, and that neither party may challenge this choice of forum on procedural grounds; and to that end, each party waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection which it may now or later have to the laying of venue of any legal action or proceeding arising out of this Agreement brought in such courts.

Rainmaker Games’ failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver by Rainmaker Games of any provision or any right it has to enforce these Terms. Any such waiver must be in writing in order to be effective. These Terms shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between User and Rainmaker Games as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services.
You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement, and any such attempt will be null and void. Rainmaker Games may, in its sole discretion, transfer, without further consent or notification, all contractual rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement to any affiliate of Rainmaker Games or to another third party in the event that some or all of the business of Rainmaker Games is transferred to such other third party by way of merger, sale of its assets or otherwise.
The parties declare that they have required that these Terms and all documents related hereto, either present or future, be drawn up in the English language only. Les parties déclarent par les présentes qu’elles exigent que cette entente et tous les documents y afferents, soit pour le present ou le future, soient rédigés en langue anglaise seulement.
