III. Rights of the provider to the accounts
§ 7 All accounts, including but not limited to their items, gold, facilities, etc., are virtual objects of the game.

IV. Responsibilities of the player
§ 8 The personal rights of each individual user shall be respected. Should users feel harassed by letters or chat messages from another user, moderators can give a warning to this user or take more severe measures.
§ 9 Users shall comply with the moderator's instructions. Players who refuse to comply with these instructions can be banned. Complaints regarding the conduct of a moderator can be sent for review via an e-mail to Info@Freewar.com.
§ 10 Nicknames, which are used in the game, shall neither be offensive nor objectionable. Names which are political, racist, pornographic, violate applicable law or are otherwise objectionable can be banned to ensure common order.
§ 11 Each user shall not actively use more than one account per world. So-called "multis" (additional accounts in a world) are not permitted and can be deleted without prior warning.
§ 12 Each user is responsible for his or her account. For example, the user shall keep his or her password secret and protect the account from access by third parties.
§ 13 It is not permitted to access or retrieve any web page of Freewar using any program other than a web browser. For example, so-called "bots" and other tools which substitute or alter the web interface are not allowed. Tools which have been confirmed by an administrator and have been made available to the general public are an exception to this rule.
§ 14 Programs which automate accesses, alter the game interface or generate an excessively large number of accesses are not permitted. This includes all web pages of Freewar.
§ 15 It is not permitted to use programming errors (so-called bugs) to your own advantage. Bugs shall be reported to Info@Freewar.com.
§ 16 It is not permitted to add a link to your profile which executes a game action, when another player activates the link, if the player would have to actively initiate this game action himself or herself (e.g. by a mouse click).
§ 17 Freewar provides a platform that players can use to communicate with one another, for example, by messages. The players are responsible for the content of this communication. This includes the content of the player profiles, which are created by the players themselves - a player bears full responsibility for his or her player profile. In particular, each player shall ensure that he or she does not violate any applicable law with the content of his or her player profile. The provider is not responsible for contents which are pornographic, racist, offensive or otherwise violate applicable law, but the player in question can be banned or immediately deleted. Bans may be temporary, depending on the severity of the violation.

§ 18 The Freewar team reserves the right to electronically store any data pertaining to the players. This data is stored to monitor compliance with the rules of the game, these terms and conditions as well as applicable law.
§ 19 Each user who registers with Freewar also registers with the Freewar newsletter and agrees that Freewar can send him or her e-mails which were not requested and may, for example, contain product information.
§ 20 Freewar accepts no responsibility or liability for damages caused by the use of Freewar. Claims for damages are excluded, except damages arising from an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty (the phrase "intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty" refers to the German Civil Code, section 309 No 7b). The exclusion of liability does not apply in the case of damages arising from injury to life, body or health.
VII. Final provisions
§ 21 The Freewar team reserves the right to change or extend these terms and conditions at any time. Any change or supplement is reasonably published and announced to the users at least 14 days before it comes into force. If a player continues to use the game, he or she accepts the new terms and conditions.
§ 22 German law applies to all legal disputes related to Freewar. Where applicable, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from these contracts shall be the domicile of the provider.
§ 23 If any provision of these terms and conditions shall be in whole or in part invalid or unenforceable, or cease to have effect, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. The invalid or unenforceable provision is considered to be replaced with a provision which is valid and enforceable, and comes, in an economic way, closest to the purpose of the given provision.
