Join SmartMonsters: Terms & Conditions
Howdy! This is Part 1 of 3
You knew this would happen. Fortunately our legalese is
here to protect our members as well as our company. We
want to do everything possible to ensure that you have
a fun, hassle-free experience with us. By agreeing to
these terms & conditions you help ensure the same positive
experience for everyone else.
I agree to be responsible for my account. I will not
loan my login to another player. I will take reasonable
precautions to ensure that nobody else gains the
ability to login to my account. For example, I won't
share my password with anyone. I will notify
SmartMonsters immediately if I suspect that someone
else has logged-in to my account.
I agree to be accountable for my actions. When I
create my account I'll provide a real email address
where I can be contacted. I'll provide my real name
so that y'all will know who you're talking to.
I won't create false accounts which hide my identity
or enable tricks like multiple simultaneous logins
I agree that I will not practice any form of
harassment, discrimination, or bias based on race,
religion, gender, or sexual preference while playing
SmartMonsters' games, visiting their Web site, or
interacting with their systems in some other way. I
understand that "any form" includes my use
of language. I agree to immediately report any form of
harassment I witness to an appropriate administrator.
I agree that my contributions to SmartMonsters' games,
Web site, or other systems are the exclusive property
of SmartMonsters. Examples of "contributions"
include posts to bulletin boards, messages exchanged
via real time chat systems, my TriadCity characters,
and so on.
I agree to inform SmartMonsters of all errors or glitches
I discover while interacting with their systems. I
agree to follow SmartMonsters' guidelines whenever I
make these reports.
I agree that SmartMonsters' administrators and staff
may take any measures they believe to be necessary to
enforce these policies. The "ultimate"
penalty is deletion of a player account, and banning
of the person who created it. There are many other
possible actions short of this extreme, including
suspension of login privileges, chat or bulletin board
access, access to the games, and so on. I agree that
SmartMonsters may take any such disciplinary actions
they believe to be necessary.
I agree that SmartMonsters is not responsible for
anything which goes wrong with my computer while
I'm playing their games, visiting their Web site, or
interacting with their systems in some other way.
The same terms apply to my modem, software, and other
I understand that these terms and conditions may change
over time. I agree that it's my responsibility to keep
myself informed of these changes. I agree that by
logging in to my SmartMonsters account, I accept the
version of these terms which is current at that time.
