2. ACCESSING OUR WEBSITES
Access to any of our Websites is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Service we provide on our Websites without notice (see below). We do not guarantee any Website or any Service will be available at any particular time or times or for any periods of time and we shall not be liable if for any reason any of our Sites is unavailable at any time or for any period.
From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our Sites, or an entire Site, to Users who have registered with us.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our Sites and for all connection and other charges incurred in visiting and accessing the features of the Sites. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our Sites through your internet connection are aware of the Service Terms, and that they comply with them.
In order to purchase goods and access and use certain other Services and features available from our Websites you will need to register for an Account. More than one Account registration may be necessary to access different Services or to purchase goods or Services offered by us and our affiliates. Your Account allows you to create and maintain a personal profile and participate in certain activities on Websites operated by us and our affiliates. Additional Terms of Sale are applicable to the sale and purchase of goods and other services via the Website. To create an Account, you must select a username and password and provide certain other requested information. In consideration of your ability to use your Account to access various Services and other features on our Websites, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by the process or creating or using your Account ("User Data"); (b) maintain the security of your username and password; (c) maintain and promptly update the User Data, and any other information you provide to Square Enix, to keep it accurate, current and complete; (d) be fully responsible for all use of your Account and for any actions that take place using your Account; and (e) indemnify and hold Square Enix harmless for any improper or illegal use of your Account by any persons.
We recommend that you choose a username which does not identify your real name. Moreover, we strongly urge you not to choose a username which could possibly be used to identify you, your address, your age, postal/zip code, email address or telephone number. You cannot use a username which is already allocated to another User and it is a condition of your rights to use the Service that you do not choose a username which is obscene or otherwise offensive. We may but are not obliged to filter certain words and phrases which we consider unacceptable. However, whilst any registration process we may adopt may filter out certain unacceptable words and phrases it can never be a comprehensive filter. We therefore reserve the right to terminate your Account (or otherwise require you to re-register with a new acceptable username) at a future date if, in our discretion, we consider your username or the use of it is offensive or otherwise breaches these Service Terms in any way. For the sake of clarity, your username does not constitute your property and gives you no unique usage rights of such username. If for any reason your Account is cancelled, we may issue the same username to a subsequent User.
You agree not to allow anyone else to use your username and not to disclose your password to anyone else. This is as much for your own protection as ours and other users. However, you accept that you are solely responsible and liable for the activity carried out under your username on any Service and so if you do enable anyone else to use your user name and/or password not only do you do so at your own risk but you will also be in breach of these Service Terms. We may terminate your Account immediately for any breach of these Service Terms and in such event you will not be permitted to re-register without the express permission of Square Enix.
Registration for an Account does not mean you can use your Account for all Services which we may from time to time offer via the Website nor will it necessarily give you the right to access and play all Games which are made available via the Service or any Service or website operated by Square Enix or any of its affiliates. Separate registration for certain Services may be required in order to download and/or play certain Games or access or use certain Services, each of which may be subject to eligibility criteria which you may not meet and acceptance of additional terms, conditions and restrictions which may or may not be the same as these Service Terms. In particular, access to certain Services may be subject to:
(a) a subscription charge or other payment; or (b) age or other restrictions applicable to the content as stipulated by us.
Profiles and Communications made using your Account
You acknowledge and agree that your personal profile and communications with other Users via the message boards, blogs, forums, chats and any other avenues of communication on our Websites are public and not private communications, and that you have no expectation of privacy concerning any such profile and communications or your use of the Community or any other Service. You acknowledge that personal information that you communicate via our Websites may be seen and used by others and result in unsolicited communications, therefore we strongly encourage you not to disclose any personal information about yourself in your public communications via any Service.
We therefore strongly recommend that before you complete your personal profile that you think very carefully about what personal information you wish to make available for other users to see.
Square Enix is not responsible for information that you choose to communicate to other Users via our Websites or other Services, nor are we responsible for the actions of other Users. There are, however, come common sense rules which you should always abide by when using the Services and making communications with others via the Services or when you are on the Internet in general. Other users may not be who they say they are, or who you think they are. Unfortunately we cannot rule out that there are dangerous people using the Services. Under no circumstances should you post or give out your real name, address, telephone or mobile number or any other personal details or information which could identify who you are or where you live. Similarly even giving out your email address may be a bad idea if it contains part or all of your personal name. Always be wary of giving out details about what you do, where you go, what School or College you attend or your physical attributes.
ABOVE ALL WE WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE YOU AGAINST MEETING ANYONE THAT YOU KNOW ONLY FROM USING A SERVICE.
NOTE FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS: YOU SHOULD NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN IN YOUR CARE TO USE THE SERVICE WHILST UNSUPERVISED. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILDREN KNOW HOW TO ENSURE THEY DO NOT GIVE OUT TOO MUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THAT THEY UNDERSTAND HOW TO USE THE SERVICES SAFELY.
