User agrees that no materials associated with the Game may be altered, copied, distributed, reproduced, republished, downloaded, damaged, presented, posted, passed on or sold in any form and by any means, either in full or in part, and may not be in any other way used unless there is Administrator’s written consent to do so. This restriction does not apply to User-generated and User-owned content, as explained below, that can indeed be lawfully published. All other types of use of rights-reserved materials, including any secondary use or reuse and replication, require Administrator’s direct written permission, to be obtained in advance.

- Terms Of Game Access And Providing Features To User 1. Provision of Game Access and Features to User under this License Agreement is executed upon the condition that User familiarizes himself with and confirms his acceptance of this License Agreement and its Appendices in the order indicated by Clause 2 of this License Agreement. 2. User obtains Game Access within limits and under restrictions set out in this License Agreement and its Appendices. 3. User pays for Features in the order prescribed by this License Agreement and its Appendices. 4. User pays for Features by means of expending money in ways outlined on Administrator’s Website, in the Social Network store, or in the Mobile Platform store (Google Play and/or App Store). The outstanding amount to be paid is defined within the limits as set out by the chosen method of payment. Any Feature is deemed paid for from the moment Administrator receives a confirmation of payment from the system that was used to perform the transaction. 5. Once credit of money towards payment for Administrator’s Features is confirmed, the User Account is in turn credited with In-Game Currency of the quantity correspondent with the money paid. In-Game Currency is a standard unit that is used in the Game to attribute value to various Features and functions that are available to User in the Game. In-Game Currency does not constitute a means of payment and cannot be used outside the Game in any way. In-Game Currency can be credited to the User Account without being paid for, but as a reward for completing certain actions in the Game by such User. Actions that entail an In-Game Currency reward vary across different Games (e.g., User reaching a new level, or completing a number of specific requirements/achievements). 6. After the appropriate quantity of In-Game Currency has been credited to the User Account, it can be then further used exclusively inside said Game, while the Features are considered fully provided to User independent of her own decision to use or not use this In-Game Currency inside the Game to pay for any in-game functions. 7. User accepts and agrees that Administrator does not engage in reverse conversion of In-Game Currency (or any other in-game valuables) to money in cash or noncash form, and does not compensate and/or reimburse any User expenses, including any expenses associated with processing payment of money to Administrator, and neither does it pay out any interest on money used, since In-Game Currency constitutes an additional Game function, and purchasing it with money funds is interpreted as purchasing a license to use this function. User has no right to purchase In-Game Currency or any in-game valuables from any third person or party, as well as sell and/or pass on In-Game Currency or in-game valuables to any other User free of charge, as Administrator grants no rights to sublicense the use of such Game functions. 8. User accepts and agrees with the fact that In-Game Currency can only be used to obtain additional functions inside the Game, and that any funds credited to the in-game account are not subject to reimbursement under any circumstances.
9. Information on additional in-game functions available via the Game, which can be obtained by means of reducing the In-Game Currency total associated with the User Account, is displayed as icons/pictograms/images and/or short descriptions of such in-game functions, as well as in the form of their attributed value to be charged in In-Game Currency, should User wish to obtain them. Any additional in-game function may only become available to User if her In-Game Currency total is sufficient at the time of purchase. User accepts and agrees with the fact that Administrator has the right to amend the order of selecting in-game functions and/or providing Features. 10. User agrees that, to log and archive User actions and activity inside the Game, including, without limitation, those associated with obtaining in-game valuables and other in-game functions, Administrator employs exclusively the accounting system of its own or of the third party’s that executes such logging and archiving under contract with Administrator. 11. Any publicly available or additional (paid) functions or Features in the Game are provided by the Game Administrator strictly. Should Administrator establish that User obtains any functions and/or paid Features inside the Game from any unauthorized third party or person acting without Administrator’s consent, Administrator reserves the right to suspend, restrict and/or terminate provision of such functions and/or Features to User, as well as remove any results or effects of using such functions and/or Features in the Game and terminate the License Agreement with involved User at once. 12. In case of a technical error, Game failure or shutdown, or intentional actions by User resulting in said User obtaining Features without appropriate payment for them—that is, no payment, incomplete payment, or no debit from the User Account towards obtaining these services,— Administrator has a right to withhold the value of such Features de facto obtained from any future money credit transaction by User. 13. User personally bears all the expenses associated with transactions of payment to Administrator of any money, including any commission or additional fees. User must save all the documents that constitute proof that he had indeed paid for Features for the whole period of using the Game and, upon Administrator’s request, be able to present such documents, as well as present any specific information about the circumstances under which those payments were executed by User. 14. Should User breach this License Agreement in any way, she may be denied any further provision of Game access by Administrator immediately, without any prior notification, or such access may be suspended or restricted partly or in full. The list of grounds for such suspension, restriction and/or termination of provision of Game access may be found in Appendix 1 to this License Agreement. 15. Obtaining any Features by User does not relieve her from having to comply with this License Agreement or from being subject to any disciplinary measures outlined by this License Agreement. 16. Administrator accepts no responsibility for potential unlawful actions by User associated with paying for Features in the Game. 17. Administrator reserves the right to suspend, restrict or terminate provision of standard game functions, Features or Game’s Virtual Space to User at its sole discretion, should there arise any basis to believe that User has been engaging in unlawful activity, until the situation is clarified/resolved. 18. In certain cases, Administrator reserves the right to forward certain User information to legal authorities, if said User acts in breach of this License Agreement. 19. If User has any complaints about the content of de facto provided Features, he must immediately inform Administrator by email via the special online form at https://crazypanda.ru/en/contacts/, specifying his identification details, the instances that brought up the complaint, the time and date of the incident, and the reasons behind the complaint. 20. In case the Feature was not provided or was provided inappropriately and/or incompletely, User has a right to file a complaint to Administrator. No compensation under the terms of this License Agreement may exceed the In-Game Currency value of the Feature or function in dispute that was not provided or was provided inappropriately. 21. User acknowledges and agrees with the fact that Administrator reserves the right to amend this License Agreement and its Appendices and the list of and prices attributed to Features at its sole discretion, publicly notifying of such amendments on the Website at a permanent URL address of http://crazypanda.ru/eng/eula and/or by email and/or in the Game Client no later than 5 days in advance of the said amendments coming into effect.
