Terms of Service
Accepting these Terms
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before utilising the Gamepayments service or any other domains, products, services, and/or content provided by Gamepayments ‘Services’. By using or accessing the services, you agree to become bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, you should not and are not permitted to use the Gamepayments Services.
Gamepayments Virtual Store Service
Gamepayments provides operators of 3rd party hosted servers with virtual stores to accept donations and payments for virtual goods and services. Gamepayments then facilitates the transfer of these virtual goods to the account holder's gaming alias/account, while facilitating the transfer of monies from the buyer to the seller of the item.
An Gamepayments Buyer is defined as a person who is seeking to obtain a virtual item or service for the use on a gaming server to be utilised exclusively on that gaming server. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that all payments being made through the Gamepayments system are done legitimately, with their own funds, on their own credit card. If you do not agree with these terms of service, you should not use the system, and if a chargeback is detected, you will be added to Gamepayments’s global payment blacklist. As an Gamepayments Buyer, you will be charged a percentage fee for the utilisation of the Gamepayments provided virtual store.
An Gamepayments Seller is defined as a person who is seeking to sell virtual items for their gaming server or accept donations to maintain the server. These transactions are defined on face value as “for profit” transactions, and the seller is responsible for claiming this income for taxation purposes within their state or territory. Gamepayments also passes all liability of the transfer of the virtual item and support of those virtual items to the seller.
Purchases of any paid services are final and non-refundable. We ask that you keep good records of your receipts at all times, and that you double check before making any purchases. Your money is your responsibility. Termination of your Account or your rights under this Agreement may result in forfeiture of existing paid services. Any disputes regarding the loss or forfeiture of a virtual item are between the buyer and seller defined above.
Support & Contacting Gamepayments
If you have any issues integrating the Gamepayments system with your server system, support can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively, using the forums.
When contacting support or using the forums, there are a few things you can do to make sure that your support request is answered as quickly as possible:
Make sure that the title for your ticket is both specific and short. You want us to be able to identify your issue immediately.
The actual ticket should be easy to read, but contain as many details as possible that are relevant. Screenshots, video recordings, or detailed instructions on how to reproduce bugs go a long way to making sure we understand exactly what the problem is.
Ensure your support post is written in English as to obtain a response.
Your virtual content hosted on the Gamepayments Store
Note: In this section the term “Data” will appear frequently. “Data” means the information gathered from you when you register for your account (Including your IP address), profile data and any Content added by you.
When you upload anything to your Gamepayments Virtual store, you retain the virtual rights to your digital items, as long as these items do not violate any other terms in this agreement.
Keeping the above in mind, you give us permission to use, access, store, cache, publicly perform and publicly display your Content and Data. This permission is non-exclusive, worldwide, and royalty free. This permission is given to us so that we can do the following with it:
A) Make your Content and Data available on the Gamepayments network in different types of media. In other words, so that we can let you display your profile avatar, make posts on your forums, and write news & blog articles in addition to any other way your Content and Data can be made available;
B) Use your Content and Data to analyze the way that you interact with our system, so that we can market ourselves to you and users like you, and better ourselves as a business.
You are also aware that if we remove any of your Content in response to a DMCA takedown notice or because it violates our Terms of Service, we can use or recreate it in any way we need to. The most common reasons for this would be if a court or lawful body subpoenas us, or if we are required to by law enforcement agencies and governments. We may also do this to protect our own rights or the rights of individual users or our general user base.
You have certain responsibilities to your Content and Data. You are responsible for making sure that you actually own all the rights to your Content and Data, including the right to give others permission or license to use it. You are also aware that we can’t guarantee that your Content or Data is private or confidential once it is on our network.
You understand that, even if you delete your account with us, any of your Content or Data might remain on our network in some form.
You also agree that we can talk about you or share you, your Content, or your Data in material like case studies, promotions, presentations, and press releases.
We try our best to ensure that all Content and Data on our network is safe to view for the general public. You understand that we may filter or refuse to accept any Content or Data you post, display, or transmit on or through our network. With this in mind, we cannot be expected to filter or refuse to accept any Content or Data in an obligatory manner. If we choose to do this, we can do so with or without notice and without liability of any kind.
