PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY; THIS IS A BINDING CONTRACT.
If you wish to install and play the videogames made available through the Site (each, a “Game”) you must first read and agree to the end user license agreement provided with a Game (the “EULA”). The EULA governs the terms regarding your use of each Game and this ToU governs your use of the Services.
Supergiant may amend this ToU at any time by posting the amended ToU on the Site, and you agree that you will be bound by any changes to this ToU. For your convenience, the date of last revision is included at the top of this page. Supergiant may make changes to the Site at any time. You understand that Supergiant may discontinue or restrict your use of the Site for any reason or no reason with or without notice.
YOUR USE OF THE SITE SIGNIFIES THAT YOU AGREE TO THIS TOU AND CONSTITUTES YOUR BINDING ACCEPTANCE OF THIS TOU, INCLUDING ANY MODIFICATIONS THAT SUPERGIANT MAKES FROM TIME TO TIME.
2. ToU Updates. Supergiant will revise this ToU as the Site evolves. You must agree to all revisions if you choose to continue using the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the then-current version of this ToU as posted on the Site at www.supergiantgames.com. If at any point you do not agree to any portion of the then-current version of this ToU, you must immediately stop using the Site.
3. Fansites and Use of Supergiant Content. In this section, the term “Supergiant Content,” means Game-related images, graphics and artwork and the term “Supergiant Marks,” means the trademarks, logos, and service marks of Supergiant and/or our licensors. Unless otherwise specified on the Site, we grant you a personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive license to reproduce and display any Supergiant Content and Supergiant Marks solely on your fansite or fansite pages dedicated to a Game (“Fansite”) solely for noncommercial purposes, provided that you agree to the following:
3.1. Compliance with All Agreements and Policies. You must be in full compliance with the provisions of this ToU and any usage guidelines or policies that may be provided by Supergiant from time to time (all of which may be modified from time to time in our sole discretion).
3.2. Fansite Restrictions. As the operator of an independent, unaffiliated web site, you will have sole editorial control of the Fansite, except that you represent and warrant to Supergiant that the Fansite will not post or transmit: (a) any material that is unlawful, harmful, harassing, fraudulent, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or infringes our or any third party’s intellectual property or other rights; or (b) any content or information that is derogatory or harmful to the reputation of a Game, Supergiant, our officers and employees and/or any of our licensors and/or suppliers, in any way.
3.3. Notice Requirements. You must retain all trademark, copyright and other proprietary notices contained in or on the Supergiant Content or Supergiant Marks. If you post Supergiant Content on your Fansite, you must also prominently post the following notices on your Fansite on the same web page(s) as any of the Supergiant Content: “Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre content and materials are trademarks and copyrights of Supergiant Games, LLC or its licensors and used with permission. All rights reserved.” You shall not remove or alter any identifying information or copyright or trademark information conveyed in connection with the Supergiant Content.
3.4. Reservation of Rights. Your ownership in the Fansite excludes (a) Supergiant Content, Supergiant Marks and all goodwill relating thereto, and (b) any derivative works based upon or including Supergiant Content and/or Supergiant Marks. The Fansite is not a “Joint Work” as that term is defined under United States copyright law (i.e., Title 17, United States Code). You shall not challenge Supergiant’s ownership of Supergiant Content or Supergiant Marks, nor use or adopt any trademarks that might be confusingly similar to Supergiant Marks.
3.5. Restrictions on Use.

Supergiant does not consent to the protection of any unauthorized derivative work under any copyright law. The creation and sale of merchandise that uses, references or is based upon a Game, Supergiant Content and/or Supergiant Marks is expressly prohibited.
3.6. Termination and Limitation of Liability. We may terminate the limited permission to use the Supergiant Content and Supergiant Marks pursuant to this Section 3 at any time for any reason. Under no circumstances will we be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages of any kind in connection with this limited permission. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to expressly refuse this limited permission to any particular Fansite, or to revoke this limited permission at any time without any liability to you whatsoever.
4. User Content.
4.1. Content. “Content” means any communications, images, sounds, and all the material and information that you upload or transmit through the Site, or that other users upload or transmit, including without limitation any bulletin board postings.

This means that you, and not Supergiant, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Site. Supergiant does not control the Content posted or transmitted through the Site bulletin boards and does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Content. You understand that by using the Site, you may be exposed to Content that is offensive, indecent or objectionable and you may be exposing others to Content that others find objectionable.

None of the Content will be subject to any obligation, whether of confidentiality, attribution or otherwise, on our part and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Content.
4.3. Content Screening and Disclosure. We do not, and cannot, pre-screen or monitor all Content. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the submission of any Content. We do not assume any responsibility or liability for Content that is generated by users of the Site. We have the right, but not the obligation, in our sole discretion to edit, refuse to post, or remove any Content. We also reserve the right, at all times and in our sole discretion, to disclose any Content for any reason, including without limitation (a) to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (b) to enforce the terms of this ToU or any other agreement; (c) to protect our legal rights and remedies; (d) where we feel someone’s health or safety may be threatened; or (e) to report a crime or other offensive behavior.

You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide with regards to a purchase, including, without limitation, credit card or other payment information, is accurate, current and complete. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use the payment method you provide to us or our payment processor, including, without limitation, any credit card you provide when completing a transaction.

5.2. Return Policy. You may obtain a full refund for, or exchange, any item that you purchase through the Site for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of your purchase, including, without limitation, for defective merchandise or failed delivery. To receive a refund for the Full Purchase Amount of the item or an exchange of the item for an item of equal value, please submit the digital copy of your proof of purchase (such as an email receipt) with an email regarding the reason for your return or exchange to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Any attempted exchanges, returns or refunds after the thirty (30) day period described in this Section will not be honored.
5.3. Changes to Products and Pricing. Supergiant may, at any time, revise or change the pricing, availability, specifications, content, descriptions or features of any products sold through the Retail Store. The inclusion of any products through the Retail Store at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products will be available at any other time. Supergiant reserves the right to change prices for products displayed on the Retail Store at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. All such changes shall be effective immediately upon posting of such new product prices to the Retail Store.
5.4. Order Acceptance/Confirmation. Once we receive your order, we’ll provide you with an email order confirmation. Your receipt of an order confirmation, however, does not signify Supergiant’s acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell; we are simply confirming that we received your order. Supergiant reserves the right at any time after receiving your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. If Supergiant cancels an order after you have already been billed, Supergiant will refund the billed amount.
5.5. Shipment of Products. Title and risk of loss for any purchases pass to you upon our delivery to our carrier. We reserve the right to ship partial orders (at no additional cost to you), and the portion of any order that is partially shipped may be charged at the time of shipment. Unless as a result of events outside of our direct control, orders of products purchased by you through the Retail Store will be delivered within the time period specified for the delivery method you have selected.
5.6. Consumers Only. Supergiant sells and ships products to end-user customers only. You may not purchase products on the Retail Store for resale, and we reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if we suspect you are doing so.

17. Negotiations and Arbitration.
17.1. Negotiations. Disputes can be expensive and time consuming for both parties. In an effort to accelerate resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute or claim related to this Agreement (“Claim”), you and Supergiant agree to first attempt to informally negotiate any Claim for at least thirty (30) days (except those Claims expressly excluded in Section 17.6 below). Supergiant will send its notice to the address it has on file to the extent that you have provided additional contact information to Supergiant (e.g. by participating in a promotional or survey, or contacting a customer services representative). Otherwise, Supergiant will send its notice to the email address associated with your Account. You will send your notice to Supergiant Games, LLC, 521 Gough Street, San Francisco, CA 94102, Attn: Legal Department. Please note that this informal resolution procedure does not suspend any statutory limitation periods applicable to the bringing of a Claim.
17.2. Binding Arbitration. If the parties fail to resolve a Claim through negotiations, within such thirty (30)-day period, either you or Supergiant may elect to have the Claim (except as otherwise provided in Section 17.6) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section 17.2 and the JAMS Rules, the terms set forth in the JAMS Rules will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth in Section 17.6, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) you and Supergiant may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision is final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND SUPERGIANT ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
17.3. Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will only need to pay an arbitration initiation fee of $250 and we will pay all other costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules. Notwithstanding Section 18.5 of this Agreement to the contrary, you will not be required to pay our attorneys’ fees or other costs if you do not prevail in the arbitration.
17.4. Location. The arbitration will take place in your hometown area if you so notify Supergiant in your notice of arbitration or within ten (10) days following receipt of Supergiant’s arbitration notice. In the absence of a notice to conduct the arbitration in your hometown area, the arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances. Any Claim not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco, California, United States of America, and you and Supergiant agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
17.5. Limitations. You and Supergiant agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between Supergiant and you individually. YOU AND SUPERGIANT AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER.
17.6. Exceptions to Negotiations and Arbitration. You and Supergiant agree that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning negotiations and binding arbitration: (i) any Claims seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or Supergiant’ intellectual property rights; (ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (iii) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such courts’ jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
17.7. Governing Law. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, this Agreement shall be is governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the United States of America and the law of the State of California, without regard to choice of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You are responsible for compliance with all local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
17.8. Severability. You and Supergiant agree that if any portion this Section 17 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 17.6), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section 17.6 is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor Supergiant will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section 17.6 found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within San Francisco, State of California, United States of America, and you and Supergiant agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
18.1. TOU Revisions. This ToU may only be revised in a writing signed by Supergiant, or published by Supergiant on the Site.
18.2. No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Supergiant as a result of this ToU or your use of the Site.
18.3. Assignment. Supergiant may assign this ToU, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not assign the ToU without Supergiant’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.
18.4. Severability. If any part of this ToU is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then that portion shall be severed, and the remainder of the ToU shall be given full force and effect.
18.5. Attorneys’ Fees. In the event any litigation is brought by either party in connection with this ToU, the prevailing party in such litigation shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
18.6. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of this ToU shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the right of any party to enforce each and every such provision thereafter. The express waiver by us of any provision, condition or requirement of this ToU shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
18.7. Notices. All notices given by you or required under this ToU shall be in writing and addressed to: Supergiant Games, LLC, 521 Gough Street, San Francisco, CA 94102, ATTN: CEO.
18.8. Export Administration. You will comply fully with all relevant export laws and regulations of the United States, including, without limitation, the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (collectively “Export Controls”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you will not, and you will require your representatives not to, export, direct or transfer any Game or any direct product thereof, to any destination, person or entity restricted or prohibited by the Export Controls.
18.9. Equitable Remedies. You hereby agree that Supergiant would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this ToU were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this ToU, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
18.10. Entire Agreement. This ToU, including the documents expressly incorporated by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Site and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and us with respect to the Site.
