8. Paid Services
Some WPS Services require payment of a fee. You must have an Account and pay the subscription or other fees to participate in these activities. For information about subscription and other fees for particular services, visit https://wannaplay.studio.
FEES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART.
WPS reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time. If you pay a periodic (e.g. monthly) subscription for an WPS Service, WPS will provide you with notice of any changes to the fees or billing methods at least thirty (30) days in advance by posting such changes on the WPS Service. You are responsible for reviewing the WPS Service to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of the WPS Service thirty (30) days or more after posting of the changes means that you accept such changes. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your subscription at any time, but WPS will not refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your subscription, and we will not prorate fees for any subscription. If your use of WPS Services is subject to use or sales tax, then WPS may also charge you for any such taxes, in addition to the subscription or other fees. For further information, visit https://wannaplay.studio.
A. Payment Options. You may pay fees using the methods available for the particular WPS Service and you agree to the terms and conditions applicable to each payment method you choose. Payment methods may vary by WPS Service. When you provide credit card or other payment information to WPS, you represent to WPS that you are the authorized user of the credit card or other payment method. By agreeing to this Terms of Service, you have agreed to permit WPS to automatically renew your subscription to an WPS Service by charging a valid credit card number which you have provided to WPS. Your subscription will be automatically renewed thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the term and each anniversary thereafter for a fee no greater than WPS's then-current price, excluding any promotional and discount pricing, unless you cancel your subscription. You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account. You must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify WPS if your credit card is canceled (for example, for loss or theft). Changes to such information can be made by contacting Customer Service at https://wannaplay.studio. If you fail to provide WPS any of the foregoing information, you agree that WPS may continue charging you for any subscription automatically renewed unless you cancel your subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the subscription. WPS reserves the right to utilize third party credit card updating services to obtain current expiration dates on credit cards provided by you to WPS. Customers who use a payment method other than credit card may incur an additional payment processing fee, and may not be able to automatically renew subscriptions. For further information, visit https://wannaplay.studio.
As the Account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your Account,
including your family or friends.
B. Trial Subscriptions. For some WPS Services, WPS may offer a free trial subscription. If you accept a free trial subscription, WPS will begin to bill your Account for that WPS Service when the free trial subscription expires, unless you cancel your subscription before that time. You are always responsible for any internet service provider, telephone, wireless and other connection fees that you may incur when using WPS Services, even when we offer a free trial subscription. Trial subscriptions are not transferrable.
C. Fees Charged By Third-Party Sites and Vendors. We may provide links to other web sites. Some of these web sites may charge separate fees, which are not included in any subscription or other fees that you may pay to WPS. Any separate charges or obligations that you incur in your dealings with third parties are your responsibility.
9. Termination of WPS Services
WPS may terminate access to any online or mobile products and/or WPS Services (and/or any portion thereof) at any time by giving you notice of such termination within the time period specified when you joined the particular WPS Service, or if no time period for notice of termination was specified, then within thirty (30) days of the date such notice is either (at WPS’s discretion) provided to you via email or is posted on the applicable product or WPS Service.
WPS may also terminate access to WPS Services for violation of this Terms of Service, if WPS (in its sole discretion) deems that your use of WPS Services renders WPS Services less safe for others and/or minors or for illegal or improper use of WPS Services, Content, Entitlement, products, or WPS's Intellectual Property as determined by WPS in its sole discretion. You may lose your user name and persona as a result of termination. If you have more than one (1) Account, WPS may terminate all of your Accounts and all related Entitlements. In response to a violation of these Terms of Service or any other agreement applicable to WPS Services accessed by you, WPS may issue you a warning, suspend your Account, selectively remove, revoke or garnish Entitlements at an Account and/or device level, immediately terminate any and all Accounts that you have established and/or temporarily or permanently ban your device and/or machine from accessing all WPS Services or certain WPS Services. You acknowledge that in such an instance WPS is not required to provide you notice before taking action to suspend or terminate your Account, temporarily or permanently banning your device from some or all WPS Services or selectively removing, revoking or garnishing Entitlements associated with your Account. If WPS terminates your Account, you may not participate in an WPS Service again without WPS 's express permission. WPS reserves the right to refuse to keep Accounts for, and provide WPS Services to, any individual. You may not allow individuals whose Accounts have been terminated by WPS to use your Account.
If your Account, or a particular subscription for an WPS Service associated with your Account, is terminated, suspended and/or if any Entitlements are selectively removed, revoked or garnished from your Account and/or if your device is temporarily or permanently banned from accessing some or all WPS Services, no refund will be granted, no Entitlements will be credited to you or converted to cash or other forms of reimbursement, and you will have no further access to your Account or Entitlements associated with your Account or the particular WPS Service.

16. Limitations on Warranty and Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT THE USE OF WPS SERVICES, WPS SOFTWARE, AND THE INTERNET IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

As noted above, your conduct may also be subject to other local, state, national, and international laws.
20. Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
The purpose of this Section is to provide a streamlined method for resolution of disputes between us if they arise. As discussed below in Section 20.e, if we cannot resolve our disputes informally and you are awarded a sum at arbitration greater than WPS’s last settlement offer to you (if any), WPS will pay you 150% of your arbitration award, up to $5000 over and above your arbitration award.
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to your satisfaction by logging into our customer support interface with your Origin Account at https://wannaplay.studio. In the unlikely event that WPS cannot resolve a concern to your satisfaction (or if WPS cannot resolve a concern it has with you after attempting to do so informally), then you and WPS agree to be bound by the following procedure to resolve any and all disputes between us. This provision applies to all consumers to the fullest extent allowable by law, but expressly excludes residents of Quebec, Russia, Switzerland, the Member States of the European Union, and the Republic of Korea. By accepting these terms, you and WPS expressly waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This agreement is intended to be interpreted broadly. This Section covers any and all disputes between us (“Disputes”), including without limitation:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
- claims that arose before this Agreement or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
The only disputes that are not covered by this Section are the following:
- a claim to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or WPS’s (or any of WPS’s licensors’) intellectual property rights;
- a claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, or unauthorized use;
- In addition, nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from initiating a small claims court action.
References to "WPS," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or Software under this or prior Agreements between us. This arbitration provision evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service.
A. Informal Negotiations/Notice of Dispute. You and WPS agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least 30 days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon receipt of written notice from one person to the other (“Notice of Dispute”). Notices of Dispute must: (a) include the full name and contact information of the complaining party; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). WPS will send its Notice of Dispute to your billing address (if you provided it to us) or to the email address you provided to us. You will send your Notice of Dispute to: WannaPlay Studio Limited, Arch. Makariou III, 155, PROTEAS HOUSE, 5 th floor, 3026 Limassol, Cyprus, ATTENTION: Legal Department.
B. Binding Arbitration. If you and WPS are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations within 30 days after receipt of the Notice of Dispute, either you or WPS may elect to have the Dispute finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY THIS PROVISION, YOU AND WPS ARE FOREGOING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (AAA Consumer Rules), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, or if you send WPS a notice to the Notice of Dispute address above indicating that you are unable to pay the fees required to initiate an arbitration, then WPS will promptly pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and shall provide a statement of reasons if requested by either party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. You and WPS may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
C. Restrictions. You and WPS agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between WPS and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (2) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (3) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AND WPS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE
OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and WPS agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
D. Location. If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in the County of San Mateo, State of California, United States of America, and you and WPS agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
E. Recovery and Attorneys’ Fees. If the arbitrator rules in your favor on the merits of any claim you bring against WPS and issues you an award that is greater in monetary value than WPS's last written settlement offer made before written submissions are made to the arbitrator, then WPS will:
- Pay you 150% of your arbitration award, up to $5,000 over and above your arbitration award; and
- Pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration ("the attorney premium").
The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
The right to attorneys' fees and expenses discussed above supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses you may have under applicable law, although you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. WPS waives any right it may have to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration between us.
F. Limitation on Arbitrator’s Authority. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
G. Changes to This Provision. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if WPS makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.

Additional Terms and Conditions for Specific WPS Services
Certain WPS Services may require you to read and agree to terms and conditions that are specific to that WPS Service. Your right to use that WPS Service is subject to those specific terms and this Terms of Service. If there are any inconsistencies between the specific terms and these terms, WPS will be the final
and sole arbiter of any such inconsistencies.
In its sole discretion, WPS may contact you to review and evaluate one or more games, aspects of games, or online features prior to commercial release for the purpose of identifying program errors. You will be asked to provide to WPS (and to WPS only) certain feedback and suggestions regarding your experiences while reviewing and evaluating the game(s) or site feature(s). This process is known as a "Beta Test." You must sign and return to WPS a Pre-Release Software Confidentiality Agreement ("Confidentiality Agreement") for each specific Beta Test BEFORE you will be allowed to be a tester ("Tester") and BEFORE any software will be provided or made accessible to you. Your participation as a Tester is subject to the Confidentiality Agreement and the following terms and conditions.
In connection with the Beta Test, WPS may provide you, on a temporary basis, a pre-release copy of a game or access to a feature on the WPS site. You understand and agree that the pre-release copy and all other materials provided to you are confidential or proprietary information of WPS. You agree as a condition of participating in a Beta Test to (i) not copy or reproduce the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information, (ii) safeguard the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information and prevent unauthorized access to, reproduction of, disclosure of and/or unauthorized use of, the pre-release copy and confidential and proprietary information, and (iii) fully comply with the terms and
conditions of the Confidentiality Agreement.
You will carry out the testing personally and not provide access to pre-release materials to any other person. You agree that breach of the above obligations will cause irreparable harm to WPS, and WPS is entitled to (in addition to any other remedies available to it) ex parte injunctive relief without bond to prevent the breach or threatened breach of your obligations. Your obligation to keep the beta games confidential will continue until WPS publicly distributes, or has otherwise disclosed to the public through no fault of yours, each of the games and the content that you are testing.
Upon request, you agree to immediately return to WPS all copies of the pre-release copy and confidential or proprietary information WPS provided to you.
As a Tester, you are invited to play beta games for the sole purpose of evaluating the games and identifying errors. Nothing in these guidelines, or on this site, shall be construed as granting you any rights or privileges of any kind with respect to the beta games or content that you find here. The beta games are provided for testing on an "as is" and "as available" basis and we make no warranty to you of any kind, express or implied.
When playing some beta games, you may accumulate treasure, experience points, equipment, or other value or status indicators. This data may be reset at any time during the testing process, and it may be reset when the particular game completes a testing phase. In this case, all player history and data will be erased and each player will return to novice status.
By selecting a "Play" button to start a beta game, you agree that: (i) playing beta games is at your own risk and you know that the games may include known or unknown bugs, (ii) any value or status indicators that you achieve through game play may be erased at any time, (iii) WPS has no obligation to make these games available for play without charge for any period of time, nor to make them available at all, (iv) these games may be available only by subscription once the Beta Test process is complete or at any time in the future; (v) WPS's Terms of Service apply to your
use of the games during the testing phase, and (vi) if it is a closed beta test, you will keep all information about the beta games confidential as stated above and not disclose such information to any other person.
