The username, in-game character name and in-game guild names you choose within LeikaRO’s services may be subject to censorship if they are considered improper by the owner. This may apply for example to names which promote hate speech, criminal activity, ethnic or racial defamation, or names which include LeikaRO staff names.

6.2. Feedback
You are welcome to give your feedback for the improvement of LeikaRO’s services. However, if you share your ideas with any of the LeikaRO staff, or make it publicly known, you agree to grant LeikaRO the permanent, irrevocable, non-exclusive right to use these ideas for LeikaRO free of charge.

7. Non-Waiver

LeikaRO staff’s failure to enforce at any time any provision of this agreement does not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of this agreement.

8. Donations

You can choose to support the costs of running LeikaRO by donating through PayPal. The owner may block certain countries, regions or individuals from donating. Donations are not refundable. Attempts to get a chargeback through PayPal will result in the termination of your account(s) with LeikaRO.

9. Modifications of Terms of Service

LeikaRO’s Terms of Service may change at any time. Upon modification, you will be notified either in-game, by email, or in the announcement channels in Discord and LeikaRO’s forum. If you cannot access any of these channels, you are responsible for checking the Terms of Services for changes yourself. You agree to accept the changes by using your account(s) either on the website or on the game server.

10. Termination of Contract

You may stop using LeikaRO’s services at any time. Likewise, the termination of LeikaRO’s services for individuals or for the public can happen at any time and without prior notification and for any reason at the owner’s discretion. If you would like to have your account(s) and all of your data deleted from the server, please contact staff@leika-ro.net. In the event of termination either by you or by the owner, you are not entitled to any compensation and no reimbursement of donations shall take place.

11. Final Provisions

This agreement is to be construed in accordance with its fair meaning. Any uncertainty or ambiguity shall not be construed against the drafter. Should part of these Terms of Service turn out to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms of Service shall remain in place. Before bringing a formal legal case, you must first contact staff@leika-ro.net, so we can find a solution together.
