Box 77264, San Francisco, CA 94107, email: finance@Avarice Online.com, fax: 415-495-7443. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to Avarice Online customer service through support@Avarice Online.com. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 5(D), your DMCA notice may not be valid. B. Counter-Notice. If you believe that your User Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: Your physical or electronic signature; Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in San Francisco, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Avarice Online may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Avarice Online's sole discretion. 13) Disclaimers TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Avarice Online, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, INCLUDING THAT OF USER-SUBMITTED CONTENT OR OTHER SUBMISSIONS. Avarice Online PROVIDES THE Avarice Online SERVICE (AND ANY RELATED SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE USED OR PROVIDED BY Avarice Online IN CONNECTION THEREWITH OR ANY CONTENT INCLUDED THEREIN) "AS IS" AND ON AN "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, AND MAKES NO WARRANTY OF PERFORMANCE OR QUALITY OR THAT THE Avarice Online SERVICE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SUCH EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. 14) Limitation of Liability NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY, Avarice Online AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU ARISING FROM OR IN RELATION TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE Avarice Online SERVICE SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE TOTAL PAYMENTS MADE BY YOU TO Avarice Online UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WITHIN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE OCCURRENCE OF THE INCIDENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.

IN JURISDICTIONS THAT DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, Avarice Online, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SUBCONTRACTORS LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. 15) Payment Methods/Virtual Assets, Refunds and Returns Certain areas of the Avarice Online Service contain functionality related to the purchase and use of premium content, items and avatars (the "Premium Items") using a fictional currency ("SparkCash") that has no real world value. Regardless of any terminology used or any name freely given by Avarice Online to SparkCash, the terms and conditions related to SparkCash may change at any time without notice. The rights granted in the SparkCash and in the Premium Items are a limited license right available for one year from the data of purchase or less as specified or the case maybe. Avarice Online may charge fees for the right to use SparkCash. Fees may also be charged for the right to use Premium Items, and the purchased Premium Items will be terminated within a set period of time from the date of purchase, of which the term will be set at the sole and absolute discretion of Avarice Online. Upon expiration, the Premium Items will be terminated and removed from your Avarice Online Account without prior notification. Knowledge of Premium Item expiration is the sole responsibility of each Avarice Online Member. You further agree that there are no refunds or restorations available for any intentionally or accidentally lost, sold, traded, misplaced, or deleted Premium Items. If any of your Premium Items are removed or deleted prior to the expiration date due to an Avarice Online.com game update, program upgrade, game policy update, or any other acceptable reasons, you should send a report to Customer Support within seven (7) days of the alleged loss and we will investigate the issue and offer a resolution, possibly including compensation in the form of an identical or comparable Premium Item or an equivalent amount of SparkCash. The resolution tendered is at the sole and absolute discretion of Avarice Online and all such decisions are final. Avarice Online strives to provide free ?to-play content via the Avarice Online Service. Avarice Online Members are not required to purchase Premium Items to fully enjoy the Avarice Online Service, however, Avarice Online Members may charge SparkCash to their Avarice Online Accounts using a payment gateway (e.g. PayPal) in order to acquire said Premium Items. Avarice Online is not affiliated with any payment gateway. Before using any payment gateway, Avarice Online recommends that each Avarice Online Member carefully review and agree to the payment gateways' terms of service, which are separate from the Terms. When you present payment gateway information to Avarice Online, you represent to Avarice Online that you are the authorized user of such account. Recurring charges using Paypal must be terminated by directly contacting Paypal. ALL PAYMENTS FOR SPARKCASH ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. YOU ARE FULLY LIABLE FOR ALL CHARGES UNDER YOUR ACCOUNT. If any payment from an Avarice Online Member tendered via a payment gateway is reversed, cancelled or charged back, the associated Avarice Online Account will immediately be suspended without notice or terminated if fraudulent activity is found. Premium Items can only be used on the Avarice Online Service. Use of SparkCash or the Premium Items for any purposes other than as authorized on the Avarice Online Service, whether online or offline, is a violation of these Terms. Offering or advertising the purchase or sale of any Virtual Assets from our Site is strictly prohibited and a direct violation of the Terms. You agree that Avarice Online has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate SparkCash and/or Premium Items. Avarice Online will have no liability to you based on the exercise of such rights. If your use of any Avarice Online Service is subject to any use, sales or other taxes, or if Avarice Online offers any additional services for a fee as noted on the Avarice Online Service and you choose to partake in such services, Avarice Online may elect to invoice you for such charges, which may be equal to or additive to the rates noted on the Avarice Online Service. If you pay for the Avarice Online Service by credit card, you represent and warrant that you are the authorized user of such credit card. You agree to promptly notify Avarice Online of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, and you agree to promptly notify Avarice Online if your credit card expires or is canceled for any reason. If you pay for the Avarice Online Service by payment gateway account, you represent and warrant that you are the authorized user of such account. IN NO EVENT SHALL YOU BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND OF ANY FEES OR PRORATION THEREOF. UPON TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR ACCESS PRIVILEGES TO THE Avarice Online SERVICE AND ALL Avarice Online GAMES WILL TERMINATE AND YOU WILL FORFEIT ANY UNUSED PAYMENTS THAT YOU PURCHASED OR RECEIVED PRIOR TO TERMINATION. THIS INCLUDES A TERMINATION FOR A PERIOD OF NON-ACTIVITY ON YOUR USER ACCOUNT. 16) Third Party Sites Clicking a hyperlink on the Avarice Online Service may direct you away from the Avarice Online Service. Avarice Online does not endorse or control any third party sites, is not responsible for the content found on such sites and has no association with the owners or operators of such sites. Also, third party sites may have different terms of service and privacy policies.
