IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, WE HAVE TRIED TO BE AS ACCURATE AND SPECIFIC AS POSSIBLE; IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE TEAM. BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE, WITHOUT LIMITATION OR QUALIFICATION, TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICE.

1. Subject and limitations of the service:

Gamesplanet.com is an Internet website (hereinafter "the Site") offering internet users who have registered to the site (hereinafter "Customers"), a download to own video game service.

The user may select a video game, download it, install it on his or her computer and keep it on his or her hard disk drive (hereinafter "the Service").

The Service is operated by Gametap LLC (hereinafter the "Distributor"), c/o LIME, LLC 132 Fayerweather Street Cambridge, MA 02138.

The Service consists in the digital delivery of video games and all associated content needed to install and run such games in form of serial or activation key, multiplayer key and/or bonus key or as data files for download. No physical back-up, notably CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, will be sent (hereinafter "the Games" or the "Video Games").

Furthermore, the Service can also carry, under similar conditions, other products, such as strategy guides. These Terms of Service apply equally to any such other products as well.

2. Prerequisites:

2.1 – Internet Access: Internet Access: The Game files available to download range from dozens of megabytes to many gigabytes in size. It is therefore recommended that the Customer have a broadband internet connection, either ADSL or cable. Internet access is also required to install and launch the downloaded Games, or, depending on the Games, to make use of certain dedicated features (e.g., multiplayer sessions, etc.).

2.2 – Account: To use the Service, Customers will need to create an account and will be required to supply valid information including a valid email address. Incorrect details may result in the rejection of the Customer’s order.

2.3 – Computer: The Games require a clean computer, with system specifications fulfilling certain minimum requirements (e.g., CPU power, RAM, and GPU). These specifications are provided online on a per-Game basis. It is the Customer’s responsibility to check that the Customer’s computer fulfills the minimum requirements to run each Game. If in doubt about the specifications, please refer to Section 5 below – Customer Service and ask our customer service.

The Distributor will not be held responsible for misuse of the downloaded Games, nor for their compatibility with the Customer’s computer.

3. Price & Payment:

The prices of Games advertised for sale or license on the Site are as set out on the Site, errors and omissions excepted. Prices may change at any time prior to acceptance of Customer’s order.

Orders may be taken for Games that have not yet become available. For some Games, Customers will be able to make a pre‐released order or a pre‐load order using the Site. Release dates are set by the applicable Game publishers and are subject to change. As a result, the Distributor is not liable for any changes to a pre‐release date.

Pre‐release, pre‐load or download orders will be supplied at the price applicable at the time of order and the sale is said to have taken place once the site displays the Customer’s payment confirmation page and the Customer receives a confirmation email.

No bank or card details are visible or stored by the Distributor or on the Site. In order to fight mounting internet fraud, the Distributor collects and records certain device identifying information such as IP addresses, as well as other non‐personally identifiable information. In addition, the Distributor has contracts in place with certain third-party service providers and shares such non personally identifiable information with them to provide the safest user experience. In the absence of fraud this information will remain confidential.

4. Customers Rights & Obligations:

4.1 – Customer ID:

The Customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Customer’s account login and password, and is fully responsible for all activities that occur under this account.

The Distributor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any account if it is or appears to be used in breach of any of the provisions of these Terms & Conditions, including the provision of false registration details or any other misuse of the Site. Any person who holds such a suspended or terminated account must not re‐register on the Site without the Distributor’s prior consent.

In the event of any unauthorized use of a Customer’s account or any other breach of security, the Customer must notify the Distributor immediately by contacting customer service.

Note about Phishing (the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details): The Distributor will never ask the Customer to divulge any password. Any such request would be a fraud attempt by a third-party.

4.2 – Game Delivery:

The Customer can access the Games’ data files and all associated content needed to install and run the Games (e.g., serial number or activation key, multiplayer key, and bonus key) once the payment has been validated. In order to fight fraud, the Distributor may refuse or delay the delivery of some or all of this associated content should the payment not be validated. If a Customer is waiting for a Game delivery, the Customer may contact customer service in order to expedite the payment validation process.

4.3 – Right of withdrawal:

The Customer shall have a period of 14 working days in which to withdraw from the contract with respect to any particular Game without penalty and without giving any reason. The period for exercise of this right shall begin from the day of conclusion of the contract for said Game (that is, once Customer has received the link that permits the Customer to obtain a serial number for the applicable Game).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, once a Customer receives a serial number for a Game using the aforementioned link, the Customer may NO LONGER exercise the right of withdrawal with respect to such Game because the Service will have commenced for the Game. For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to any Game, performance begins as soon as any activation key (i.e., the serial number) is obtained by the Customer at which point the 14-day withdrawal period and right to withdraw shall no longer apply with respect to the applicable Game(s).

4.4 – Distributor cancellation & refund policy:

Video Games for which the Customer has received a serial number are non‐refundable.

Refunds may be exceptionally offered if customer service has determined the Customer’s refund request reasonable and if all the following conditions are met:

  • The time of the Customer’s request for refund/credit is less than 48 hours since the Service has been delivered;
  • The Customer’s PC configuration is sufficient to run the Game but the Game cannot be launched or properly played;
  • The Game serial numbers (activation key, multiplayer key, and bonus key) have not been transmitted and/or disclosed by the Customer to any third party;
  • If the Game has been purchased with payment methods which do not require personal details (example PaySafeCard), then the Customer will have to provide a copy of the ID and the receipt from said payment method.

Customer service will determine in its sole discretion if a Customer meets the foregoing criteria for a refund and may decide, according to certain payment methods, to deduct a part of the amount in order to cover the financial costs of the refund. If a Customer believes he or she qualifies for a refund, the Customer must contact Customer service as mentioned in Section 5 below.

4.5 – License of Use:

The payment and download of Video Games gives the Customer an individual, non-exclusive license for the use of the Game purchased, for a purely private, nontransferable and non‐commercial use. The Customer commits to using the Game following the Publisher’s End User License as provided during installation and/or (depending on the Game) on the Site.

In consequence, the Customer is forbidden from modifying, decompiling, translating, adapting and/or copying the downloaded game(s) in any way, except to create a copy onto a CD or DVD‐rom or any other support for personal archiving.

The distribution of non‐authorized copies to third parties over the internet or any other network is strictly prohibited. In order to prevent fraud, the Customer may only install the Games on a limited number of machines (and reinstall a limited number of times) and/or, (depending on the Game), will have to create an account directly on the Publisher’s site or any third party selected by said Publisher to launch or access dedicated features of the Game.

In the event of problems arising from the reasonable re‐installation of a Game (e.g., loss or system alteration), please contact customer service, which may expand Customer’s rights after having analyzed any reasonable requests.

CUSTOMERS ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT DISTRIBUTOR AND ITS LICENSORS HAVE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT IN THEIR SOLE DISCRETION, WITHOUT ANY LIABILITY TO CUSTOMERS OF ANY KIND AND IN ADDITION TO ALL OF ITS OTHER RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, AND OTHERWISE IN LAW AND AT EQUITY, TO CANCEL ANY AND ALL ORDERS, PRODUCT KEYS OR REDEMPTION CODES FOR PRODUCTS CUSTOMERS HAVE PURCHASED SHOULD DISTRIBUTOR AND ITS LICENSORS DETERMINE IN THEIR SOLE DISCRETION THAT CUSTOMERS HAVE VIOLATED THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND/OR THE LICENSE OF USE.

5. Customer Service:

The Distributor provides assistance with the Service for any questions relating to the download of, the installation of or the payment for a Game.

To receive assistance with the Service, Customers can go to the online support pages and, if they do not find the required answers, may contact customer service using the contact form available on the Site.

In order for customer service to satisfy any request, the Customer will be required to give information that was sent after the purchase (sale ID), and accurate information about the issue encountered and about the Customer’s computer environment.

The Distributor is not responsible for any issues linked to the Game itself. These issues are the Game Publisher’s responsibility only. The Distributor may provide links to the Game Publisher’s customer support or technical FAQ pages if and when available.

If none of the articles in the FAQ pages would help, Customer can contact Customer Service at help@gamesplanet.com.

6. Service Availability:

The Distributor commits to putting in place all the means at its disposal to ensure continued access to the Service. However, the Distributor cannot guarantee the speed of download of the Games, as such things are the responsibility not only of the Service but are characteristics inherent to the Internet or the delivery of a third party’s service, notably those of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

The Service runs via a technological environment that is under the management and the responsibility of the Customer, the Distributor is not responsible for any problems arising from this environment.

Apart from issues that directly concern the Service provided, the Distributor will in no event be responsible for the reliability of the data transmission, the access speed, or any other eventual restrictions of the Service. In addition, please note that momentary degradation of the quality of the Service, may occur in the event of maintenance, repair, re‐enforcement, extension or improvement of the Service, and Distributor shall incur no liability in connection therewith.
