5 Grant of Licence
5.1 WML grants you a LICENCE to use and participate in the Game subject always to your full and continuing compliance with the GOVERNING TERMS. The said LICENCE is personal to you and is not transferable and is irrevocable at WML's discretion.
6.1 To the extent that you are required for the purposes of the Game to download WML's software, updates, utilities and/or tools, the LICENCE extends to your use thereof solely for any stated purpose. You are expressly prohibited from translating, reverse engineering or otherwise interfering with such materials in order to make derivative materials or for any other reason. It is acknowledged that WML's software may not always be consistently applied across all platforms and that its performance may vary across different devices and other equipment. Nevertheless, you are expressly prohibited as aforesaid from interfering with any software in any attempt to resolve any such difficulties.
7.1 WML will have your IP address stored in its records. When WML issues updates, a check may be run on your device to establish whether you have the most up to date files. You acknowledge that all of your activity in relation to the Game may be monitored. You hereby waive any right of privacy in respect of all communications you may send or receive. You hereby permit WML to upload any elements form your device to help optimise your experience and WML's customer service. You further acknowledge that WML reserves the right to integrate anti-cheat software (either its own or that of a third-party) and you hereby consent to WML or any applicable third-party gathering, storing and publishing data (including your data) for the purpose of detecting and preventing cheating. You also acknowledge that following the introduction of updates WML may withdraw support of earlier versions.
8 Intellectual Property
8.1 All right and title in the Game and in all associated software and other elements thereof (excluding any such software and/or elements licenced from third parties) vests in WML including all text, music, sound effects, artwork, graphics, designs, characters, concepts and any trademarks. You may not copy or otherwise infringe WML's rights in respect of all or any such elements other than for the purpose of participation in the Game in accordance with the GOVERNING TERMS
9.1 WML may include with the Game, or make available in the context of its marketing, promotion and exploitation, online products and services such as characters, accessories, customising elements, game currency, tokens, credits and points ("MERCHANDISE") for use in relation to your participation in the Game which you may earn or "purchase" with virtual currency. Some merchandise may only be available if so "purchased". If you "purchase" MERCHANDISE you do not acquire ownership but instead you acquire the use and benefit of it as an additional right licensed to you within the scope of the LICENCE specified in clause 5. You may "purchase" MERCHANDISE on other platforms (including Steam) in which event such purchases will be subject to the terms imposed by the platform in question. WML will not be a party to any such transactions and cannot assist with payments or refunds. WML may impose terms in relation to MERCHANDISE and may discontinue and/or update any item in its absolute discretion without liability to you or any other person. MERCHANDISE has no actual monetary value and you are hereby prohibited from selling or otherwise dealing in MERCHANDISE for real money or for other goods and services inside or outside of the Game, save as expressly permitted in the gameplay. WML may incorporate digital rights management software in the Game. You consent to the installation of any such elements of software on your device and acknowledge that this may limit the number of installations of the Game on your device. WML will not be liable for any damage caused by elements installed on your device via such software. In the event we incorporate such software you may be required to register and to accept any separate terms imposed by the digital rights management software supplier. If you elect not to accept those separate terms the LICENCE hereunder will thereupon immediately terminate, and you will no longer be entitled to participate in the Game.
10.1 Both WML and you may terminate the LICENCE for any reason. In the event of termination by WML this will be effective immediately upon notification to you. WML may permanently discontinue support for the Game for any reason whereupon the LICENCE will terminate with immediate effect. You may terminate the LICENCE by notifying WML to such effect at email@example.com whereupon your right to participate in the Game shall immediately cease. You will not be entitled to any compensation for any MERCHANDISE upon termination of the LICENCE save as may expressly be provided for in the GOVERNING TERMS.
11 Limitations on Liability
11.1 You participate in the Game at your sole risk, and you acknowledge WML gives no warranties of any kind whether express or implied in relation to the Game and/or any of the related software and other materials save to the extent WML is required by law to do so. Without limiting the foregoing, WML gives no warranty as to merchantable quality, fitness for purpose, the availability of access to services, the capacity of any such services, the lack of defects or viruses, nor the extent of efforts if any to correct errors and defects. Your sole remedy in the event of any complaint is to terminate the LICENCE and in no event shall WML be liable to you for any financial loss of any kind. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any competent court of jurisdiction determines that any element of the GOVERNING TERMS is wholly or partially unenforceable for any reason then the requisite provision or provisions shall be deemed amended so far as is necessary to afford maximum protection to WML whilst being properly enforceable
