EmeraldsMC Terms of Service
Effective Date: 13 SEPTEMBER 2023
Welcome to EmeraldsMC (identified as 'we', 'our,' '[the] platform,' '[the] server,' etc.), your premier gaming server! We're thrilled to have you join our gaming community. To ensure an enjoyable and balanced experience for all players, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Terms of Service. These terms govern your use of our gaming server and outline our commitments, including compliance with the End User License Agreement (EULA) and our dedication to offering cosmetic, non-game-altering features to our valued donators.
1. User-Generated Content and Accounts
EmeraldsMC operates as a platform for user-generated content and accounts. Please be aware that all content shared within our platform represents the views and opinions of its respective authors, not EmeraldsMC as an entity.
2. Age Requirement
Our Service is exclusively available to users who are 16 years of age or older. By registering for our Service, you confirm that you meet this age requirement. If you are under 16, we kindly ask that you refrain from registering.
3. Content Review and Third-Party Verification
All content you submit, upload, or make available on our Service may be reviewed by our staff members. Additionally, we may employ third-party verification services, including spam prevention tools. Please avoid submitting any content you consider private or confidential.
4. Responsible Use of the Service
You agree not to use our Service for the following purposes:
Remember that you are solely responsible for the content you share and any consequences arising from it.
5. Content Removal, Account Termination, and Player Equality
We fully reserve the right to remove or modify any submitted content, with or without cause, and with or without prior notice. Requests for content removal or modification will be handled at our discretion. Additionally, we may terminate your access to any part of the Service, regardless of your rank or status, with or without cause, and with or without notice.
6. License and Copyright
By using our Service, you grant us a non-exclusive, permanent, irrevocable, and unlimited license to use, publish, or re-publish your content in connection with our Service. However, you retain copyright ownership over your content.
7. Changes to Terms
These terms may be subject to updates or modifications at any time, without prior notice. It is your responsibility to periodically review them to stay informed.
8. Agreement and Account Closure
Your use of EmeraldsMC's Service signifies your acceptance of these terms. If you disagree with any part of these terms, please refrain from registering or using the Service. If you wish to close your account, please don't hesitate to contact us by submitting a ticket.
9. All Rights Reserved
EmeraldsMC reserves all rights surrounding user accounts, both on the server and website. As such, staff members reserve the right, at any time, for any reason, to terminate an account, regardless of player rank, status, or longevity of playtime. All users are subject to the rules set forth on the website and the server. Warnings are typically given before a ban is applied to a user account. All users are permitted to apply for an appeal for any misconduct identified that resulted in a ban, but appeals are not guaranteed to overturn any corrective actions put in place. Staff members are monitored for misuse of their powers and members may report any misconduct to a superior staff member to submit a complaint, if needed.
10. Chargebacks Not Permitted
We strictly prohibit any chargebacks, disputes, or reversals of payments made to EmeraldsMC for any products or services offered. Initiating a chargeback without proper cause is considered a breach of our terms of service and will not be tolerated.
If you believe there has been an error or unauthorized transaction, please contact our support team immediately for assistance. We are committed to resolving payment-related issues promptly and fairly.
Any user found to have initiated a chargeback may face corrective actions on the server, including, but not limited to, temporary suspension, permanent ban, or forfeiture of in-game items or currency.
In addition to corrective actions on the server, we reserve the right to take legal action to recover any damages resulting from improper chargebacks. This may include pursuing claims in a court of law or through alternative dispute resolution methods.
We strongly advise all users to thoroughly review and understand our payment and refund policies before making any transactions with EmeraldsMC.
11. Forfeiture of Litigation
By playing on the EmeraldsMC server or using our website, you automatically agree to forfeit any right to initiate or participate in litigation, whether in a court of law or through alternative dispute resolution methods, against EmeraldsMC, its owners, administrators, staff members, or affiliates.
This forfeiture of litigation includes, but is not limited to, disputes related to your gameplay, interactions with other players, content submissions, account actions, or any other aspect of your experience on EmeraldsMC.
We encourage our users to resolve any concerns, disputes, or issues through our designated channels for support and communication, which are designed to provide fair and efficient solutions for all parties involved.
If you do not agree with this forfeiture of litigation clause, please refrain from playing on the server or using our website.
Thank you for becoming a part of the EmeraldsMC gaming community. We're excited to embark on this gaming journey with you and provide an exciting and balanced playing experience for all our users!
