The following terms regulate the use of the online-games provided by War Kingdoms on the War Kingdoms internet pages and their additional range of services. When a user registers or logs on to the War Kingdoms portal, a user contract for client-based online games (i.e. games that require the download of a client) is always established with War Kingdoms. War Kingdoms in these cases is merely a vicarious agent of War Kingdoms in regard to registration and login.
War Kingdoms offers online games and other services within the framework of its technical and operational capabilities with an average annual availability of 98.0%. This does not include periods of time during which the use of online games and other service offerings are interrupted or affected due to compelling technical reasons or because of required maintenance work without War Kingdoms having to provide compensation in accordance with the provisions of this agreement.
The online games and additional range of services are continually developed, updated and adjusted further. The user has only the opportunity to take part in the respective online game and additional offers in their respective version provided at a time.
Online games and other services offered by War Kingdoms are intended solely for the purpose of entertainment. The use for business or commercial purposes is prohibited.
The user him/herself is responsible for the timeliness and appropriateness of its software and hardware.
At various online games and other services, the user has the opportunity to use services of contractors of War Kingdoms. In this case, a separate contract between the user and the respective contractor of War Kingdoms applies. The user is informed appropriately prior to conclusion of the contract.
Other provisions or terms and conditions of the user only apply if War Kingdoms agrees to their validity by prior written consent.

Parents can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In some cases the registration process may deviate from this procedure, in which case the user will be advised in an appropriate manner.
