IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, YOU MUST NOT USE OR MUST IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE YOUR USE OF THIS SITE.
SnowWolfe Games staff has final say over what constitutes a violation of these rules.
Equine-Ranch.com is a game simulation (the "Service").
You must be 13 years of age or older to sign up for an account. If you are under the age of 13, you must get a parent or guardian to sign up for you.
You may establish one (1) free account with which to play Equine-Ranch.com pursuant to the terms, conditions and restrictions contained in this Agreement. Creating additional free accounts may result in in-game fines, account restrictions, deletions, and/or suspensions of your accounts.
You may not share your account(s) with anyone, except that if you are a parent or guardian, you may permit minor children in your home to use your account(s). You are liable for all uses of the Account. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you shall have no ownership or other property interest in the Account, and you further acknowledge and agree that all rights in and to accounts are, and shall forever be owned by SnowWolfe Games.
Subscribers to premium (paid) accounts that are paid online through Paypal or any other electronic means we may institute in the future, must provide accurate, complete, and updated billing information for payment of the subscription fee. Subscriber also agrees to not use any credit card or Paypal account that is not their own without proper permission from the cardholder/account owner. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE A BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE TERMINATION OF ALL YOUR ACCOUNT(S). In the event that SnowWolfe Games learns that you have provided false, or misleading information, SnowWolfe Games reserves the right to immediately suspend, disable, or delete your account(s).
SnowWolfe Games may, in its sole, and absolute discretion, suspend or terminate your access to the Site, and downgrade, disable, or delete your account(s), if:
Your password is to be kept confidential at all times and you are solely responsible for the security of your password. SnowWolfe Games is not responsible for any harm that may result to your account(s) (including without limitation the deletion, or modification of the account(s) or the items on them) as a result of a lost or shared password.
No one from SnowWolfe Games will ever ask you for your password.
All playernames, ranch names, horse names, and event names shall be subject to the naming guidelines contained in this TOS.
There are no refunds where the account(s) is/are terminated for TOS violations prior to the end of a subscription term.
Associated Accounts are defined as any two or more accounts that have been accessed from the same network or computer, or are operated by the same player, or operated by players in the same household, or are paid for by the same Paypal account/person.
Associated accounts must be operated as separate entities. This means you must run each account independently of associated accounts. Prohibited interaction between associated accounts includes, but is not limited to:
Creating additional accounts when already suspended will result in permanent banning of all accounts.
You acknowledge that the Owner of the Site is autistic and as such has difficulties communicating with people. Further the Owner becomes easily frustrated with this communication difficulty and with being stressed by feeling too many demands from players and can easily become short-tempered when stressed by too much interaction. The Owner may also come across as "blunt," "condescending," or "offensive" without meaning to due to the way she communicates. The Owner also lacks a social filter and often blurts out what she is thinking which at times can be harsh and unkind when she is angry or upset. The Owner is also very rigid about rules and makes no exceptions under any circumstances. You agree that you understand that the Owner has these limitations, and others that may display themselves, and that you will show the appropriate patience, civility, and tolerance due her disability.
You agree that you will not lash out with insensitive remarks calling the Owner such thing as "Hitler," "dictator," "tyrant," nor any other derogatory or unkind things just because you do not like how she acts due to her disability. You must behave with civility, respect, and understanding IF YOU CHOOSE to interact directly with the Owner. You may of course choose to not directly interact with the Owner if you prefer or do not feel you can accept her disability.
