warrant that you are the owner of or have the right to post your

the rights of any third party. You hereby grant Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios a perpetual,
irrevocable, non-exclusive, sub-licensable, worldwide, royalty-free
license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, distribute, publicly
display and perform any and all of your Participatory Content in all
media now known or later developed. You, and not Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios, are
entirely responsible for all of your Participatory Content that you
upload, post, email or otherwise transmit via the Site, Services or
Games.

Content Monitoring. As a matter of policy, Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios does not
manually pre-screen or monitor the content that you or other members may
post to the Bang! site or game. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios does use automated mechanisms
as necessary to filter obscene or vulgar language, mechanisms which are
under user control (see the Options panel). Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios does reserve the
right to monitor all such content, and reserves the right to remove
without notice any and all content that Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios, in its sole
discretion, finds offensive or otherwise objectionable. You are solely
responsible, and bear the risk, for evaluating the accuracy, integrity,
quality, completeness or utility of any content. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios makes no
representations or warranties about the content appearing in Bang! Under
no circumstances will Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios be liable in any way for any content,
including but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any content,
or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of
any content posted, emailed or otherwise transmitted via Bang!

Mature Content. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios has adopted a "MATURE" rating, and parts of
the Site, Services and/or Games contain adult or mature content that some
users may consider offensive, indecent or objectionable. While Three
Rings has established a list of restrictions (section 5) and may in some
instances choose to monitor and take action upon inappropriate gameplay,
chat or links to the Services, it is possible that at any time there may
be language or other material accessible on or through the Site, Services
or Games that may be offensive or objectionable to some users.

Content Transmission. You understand that the technical processing and
transmission of the Services, including your Participatory Content and
Public Content, may involve (i) transmissions over various networks; and
(ii) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting
networks or devices.

Links. The Site, Services and Games may provide links to other sites
for your convenience only. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios does not control, is not
responsible for, does not necessarily endorse and makes no representation
about the materials contained at any linked site. If you choose to visit
any linked Sites, Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios recommends that you review the other site?s
terms of use. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios is not responsible for webcasting or any other
form of transmission received from any linked site.

Names. In creating your character in Bang! we ask that you use names
appropriate for the setting. Do not use names that violate these terms,
that might be offensive to other players, or that include copyright or
trademark characters or products. Avoid names that are from or imply
popular media and culture. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios will arbitrarily change any names
it considers unsuitable, or ban the accounts associated. Other than in
these circumstances, names will not generally be changed.

Auctions and Sales. It is against Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios policy to allow accounts,
characters, items, or money to be sold for real money on auction sites or
otherwise. We will ask auction sites to respect this policy. We will
terminate accounts that we believe are in violation of this policy.

consider unsolicited ideas, including but not limited to ideas for advertising
campaigns, technology development or product names. Please do not send Three
Rings or any of its employees any unsolicited materials, including any artwork
or demos. If any area of the site, services or games invites you to submit
material, such as a portfolio URL for a job application, such submission shall
not be deemed to be unsolicited for purposes of this section 8 ("Idea
Submission Policy"). The purpose of this policy is to avoid potential
misunderstandings or disputes if Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios' products or marketing strategies
might seem similar to ideas submitted to Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios. Please note that any
material you submit to Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios in any manner, aside from examples of prior
work as part of a job application, will be deemed your "Participatory Content"
and subject to the terms of section 7.1 ("participatory content").

Your Account is Your Responsibility. You are solely responsible and
entirely liable for all activities conducted through your account and/or your
User ID, even if your account has been compromised through no fault of your
own. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios encourages you to maintain the confidentiality of your
password, and reminds you that you do not have a license to let others use your
account. You agree to notify Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios immediately in the event your password
is lost, stolen, disclosed or compromised. It is not Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios' policy to ask
for your password online, and Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios suggests that you never respond to an
on-line request for your password. You acknowledge that although the Site,
Services and/or Games may offer a feature that allows you to "remember" your
password and thereby bypass the password protection, this feature makes it
possible for third parties to access your account and User ID. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios
strongly discourages the use of the password bypass feature, which will in any
event be at your own risk.

Privacy. You understand that you have no expectation of privacy with
respect to your use of the Site, Services or Games, and that all communications
made by or received from you may be monitored, preserved and disclosed by Three
Rings representatives. You hereby consent to the extraction of hardware system
profile data and any data related to operation of the software from any
computer that logs on to the Site, Services or Games using your account. You
acknowledge and agree that Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios will report to law enforcement
authorities any actions which may be considered illegal, as well as any reports
it receives of such conduct. Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios will cooperate fully with law
enforcement agencies in any investigation of alleged illegal
activity. Specifically, Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios may disclose information about you or your
Participatory Content if Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios has the good faith belief that such
disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b)
enforce the Terms; (c) respond to claims that any your Participatory Content
violates the rights of a third party; or (d) protect the rights, property or
safety of Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios, its members or the public. These Terms are also subject
to Grey Havens & YourFunWorld Studios' general Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by this reference
as if set out in full.
