Terms and Conditions

While we here at GamingForGood.net are not fans of legalese, our lawyers insist that we post these Terms and Conditions. So in an attempt to make everything as easy as possible to understand, we've added bold text wherever we felt it may help to simplify and summarize things. These summaries, for the record, are not part of the official legal terms.

GamingForGood.net is developed and maintained by The Singularity Group, an informal collective of volunteer activists who focus their efforts on a wide range of projects from charity fundraising to net neutrality activism. In legal, commercial and administrative terms, GamingForGood.net is owned and represented by the European company, Nomad Assembly Ltd. "We", "us" or "GamingForGood.net" will, in these terms and conditions, collectively refer to The Singularity Group and Nomad Assembly Ltd. By using this website (the "Site") and its services (together with the Site, the "Services") offered by us, you're agreeing to these legally binding rules (the "Terms"). You're also agreeing to our Privacy Policy and to follow any other rules that may be presented on the site.

From time to time, we may need to change these terms to ensure that it stays up to date with the latest legal requirements as well as changes and additions to our services. When we do change this policy in ways that require additional consent, we will make sure to notify you about the changes. A copy of the latest version of this policy will always be available on this page.

Any type of benefits our service provides (such as game keys or in-game items) are simply gifts that we give out freely to support you or make your experience more pleasant. We always try to provide the best service possible but are not obliged to deliver or continue delivering any of these gifts, benefits or features. They come without warranty or guarantee and are not to be resold.

By using GamingForGood.net, you certify that You are at least eighteen (18) years old or have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you are domiciled or you have a parent’s and/or guardian’s permission to access GamingForGood.net.

You shall cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any claim.

Donations

Keep in mind that donations are just donations, not payments for a service of any kind (even when they result in gifts or music played on stream). You are responsible for any donations you make or receive and can not expect anything in return for your donation. GamingForGood.net acts as a sort of 'portal' site and does not process the transactions. For issues specifically related to transactions, we always recommend you either reach out to the streamer or the payment provider.

By making a donation You agree that: (i) GamingForGood.net shall not be liable for the manner in which a recipient uses any donation funds received; (ii) GamingForGood.net shall notify recipients of donations, however, in no event shall We be liable for any unclaimed or unacknowledged donations; (iii) the recipient is not required to accept or acknowledge any donation; (iv) GamingForGood.net reserves the right to change GamingForGood.net’s payment processor at any time; (v) GamingForGood.net is not responsible for any fees, other amounts charged by any financial institution, or any taxes relating to funds received or paid in connection with transmitting a donation; (vi) You have received nothing in-kind in exchange for Your donation, and (vii) GamingForGood.net reserves the right to determine whether any fees shall be deducted from a donator’s remittance or from the recipient’s balance.

Donations made to charitable organizations, such as to Save the Children, through GamingForGood.net may be tax deductible based upon the laws specific to Your jurisdiction. GamingForGood.net does not provide tax advice and it is incumbent upon you to secure competent information from a lawyer or tax advisor for information about the tax implications of Your donation and required documentation.

In the event of a chargeback, refunded or voided donation, or other refund, credit, adjustment, fine, penalty, or other amount due to manifest error or legal requirement, GamingForGood.net’s payment processor (G2A Pay) may debit your account. Recipient hereby authorizes GamingForGood.net's payment processor to make ACH or other online debits to the recipient's account, and to resubmit any such debit that is returned unpaid, e.g., for insufficient funds. GamingForGood.net's payment processor may place a reasonable hold or reserve on a donation with a high risk of chargeback, refund or the like.

If You enroll in reoccurring monthly donations through GamingForGood.net's payment processor, you agree that said authorization shall remain in place for GamingForGood.net's payment processor to debit your selected method of payment until such time as you notify GamingForGood.net's payment processor to terminate this authorization.

Account Creation

Privacy

We always try to go the extra mile to protect your privacy and to be transparent about how we collect information and for what purpose. This is partially why we have an elaborate and easy to understand Privacy Policy on a separate page that we recommend you take a few minutes for to read.

GamingForGood.net respects your privacy and does its best to protect it in every way. GamingForGood.net shall be entitled to use Your User Information for the following purposes: (i) internal market research, including statistical analysis of user behavior (ii) to comply with any requirements imposed upon on Us by law; (iii) to send You periodic communications through e-mail about important issues as well as any kind of notice or updates that you may have given explicit consent for (iv) to disclose necessary information to recipients and GamingForGood.net’s payment processor for the purpose of effectuating donations; and (v) to utilize Your twitchID to thank You for Your donation on GamingForGood.net. You grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute publically displayed content such as username and avatar that are provided by your Twitch account (that you connect to GamingForGood.net) in applications, broadcasts, publications or promotions by Us that are related or unrelated to GamingForGood.net.

Liability

In closing, here's some typical 'liability' legalese that basically says that while we do our best to make all content and information on GamingForGood.net as accurate and free of errors as possible, we are not responsible for the consequences of potential errors. This legal text also somehow covers potential injury or death, even though we're quite sure our website could never injure or kill anyone.

We try to assure the accuracy, security and stability of GamingForGood.net, but despite our best efforts it is possible that the Site may contain errors, inaccuracies or errors (collectively, “Errors”). We are not liable for any harm caused or related to any such errors and you agree that your use of GamingForGood.net is on an as is and as available basis and that your use of GamingForGood.net is at your sole risk. To the fullest extent permitted by law, and except as expressly provided under these Terms and Conditions, GamingForGood.net excludes all representations, conditions, warranties and other terms in relation to GamingForGood.net.

GamingForGood.net excludes all liability or responsibility for any loss or damage that may result to you or any third party (including, but not limited to, any direct, indirect, or consequential loss or damage whether in tort, contract or otherwise), in connection with any content displayed on GamingForGood.net or the use, or inability to use, GamingForGood.net or any websites linked to GamingForGood.net.

If any provision herein is unenforceable, then such provision shall be of no effect on any other provision hereof. No waiver of any breach hereof shall be deemed a waiver of any other breach hereof. Section headings are provided for convenience only, and shall not be used to construe the meaning of any section hereof.
