Hello, and welcome to the Rulers of the Sea Terms of Service (“ToS”). These ToS are important because they:

  4. Contain a class action waiver and an agreement on how to resolve any disputes that may arise by arbitration.

Please read these ToS, our Privacy Policy and any other terms referenced in this document carefully.

1 Introduction

This introduction describes the parties and the services governed by this agreement, and other agreements referred to herein.

PLEASE READ THESE TOS CAREFULLY. By signing up or otherwise using any of the Rulers of the Sea services, including all associated features and functionalities, websites and user interfaces, as well as all content and software applications associated with our services (collectively, the “Rulers of the Sea Services” or “Services”), or accessing videos or other content or material that is made available through the Services (the “Content”) you are entering into a binding contract with Deadeye Games B.V. indicated in Section 24 (Contact us).

Your agreement with us includes these ToS and any additional terms that you agree to, as discussed in the Entire Agreement section below (collectively, the “Agreements”). The Agreements include terms regarding future changes to the Agreements, automatic renewals, limitations of liability, privacy, waiver of class actions, and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court. If you wish to review the terms of the Agreements, the current effective version of the Agreements can be found on Rulers of the Sea’s website. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the Rulers of the Sea Services or access any Content.

The “Game” shall mean „Rulers of the Sea” and all its related modules. Deadeye-Games B.V. is sometimes also referred to herein as ”Deadeye Games”,”we”, ”us”, or ”our”.

These ToS, (the separate End User Licensing Agreements ”EULA”), the Rulers of the Sea Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”), and any rules or instructions regarding a particular activity, poll, or other offer expressly modifying these ToS, constitute the ”Deadeye-Games Terms”.

2 Changes to the Agreements

Occasionally we may make changes to the Agreements for valid reasons, such as improving the existing functions or features or adding new functions or features to the Services, implementing advancements in science and technology, and reasonable technical adjustments to the Services, ensuring the operability or the security of the Services, and for legal reasons. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we will provide you with notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice or seeking your agreement within the Services or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Services after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Services under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate your account by contacting us.

3 Enjoying Rulers of the Sea

Here’s some information about all the ways you can enjoy Rulers of the Sea.

3.1 Service Options

You can find a description of our Service options on our , and we will explain which Service options are available to you when you create a Rulers of the Sea account. Certain options are provided to you free-of-charge. The Rulers of the Sea Services that do not require payment are currently referred to as “Free Service.” Other options require payment before you can access them (“Paid Subscriptions”). We may also offer special promotional plans, memberships, or services, including offerings of third-party products and services in conjunction with or through the Rulers of the Sea Services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans and promotional offerings at any time in accordance with these Terms.

The Unlimited Free Services may not be available to all users. We will explain which Services are available to you when you are signing up for the services.

3.2 Trials

From time to time, we may offer trials of Paid Subscriptions for a specified period of time without payment or at a reduced rate (a “Trial”). Rulers of the Sea may determine your eligibility for a Trial, and withdraw or modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability, to the extent permitted under applicable law.

For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your payment details to start the Trial. By providing such details you agree that we may automatically begin charging you for the Paid Subscription on the first day following the end of the Trial on a recurring monthly basis or another interval that we disclose to you in advance.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT THIS CHARGE, YOU MUST CANCEL THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIAL.

4 Payments, cancellations and cooling off

4.1 Billing

You may purchase a Paid Subscription directly from Rulers of the Sea by (1) paying a subscription fee in advance on a monthly basis or some other recurring interval disclosed to you prior to your purchase; or (2) pre-payment giving you access to the Rulers of the Sea Services for a specific period (“Pre-Paid Period”).

Rulers of the Sea may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions, including recurring subscription fees, the Pre-Paid Period (for periods not yet paid), from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Rulers of the Sea Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Paid Subscription prior to the price change going into effect.

If you register for a Paid Subscription, you may change your mind for any or no reason and receive a full refund of all monies paid within fourteen (14) days starting from the day you sign-up for the relevant Services (the “Cooling-off Period”) in accordance with the following:

  • If you sign up for a Trial, you agree that the Cooling-off Period for the Paid Subscription for which you are receiving a Trial ends fourteen (14) days after you start the Trial. If you don’t cancel the Paid Subscription before the Trial ends, you lose your right of withdrawal and authorize Deadeye Games to automatically charge you the agreed price each month until you cancel the Paid Subscription.
  • If you purchase a Paid Subscription with no Trial, you authorize Deadeye Games to charge you automatically each month until you cancel. You agree that the Cooling-off Period is available for fourteen (14) days after your purchase, but is lost once you use the Rulers of the Sea Services during that period.

4.2 Renewal and Cancellation

Unless your Paid Subscription has been purchased for a Pre-Paid Period, your payment to Deadeye Games will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription period, unless you cancel your Paid Subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period, and you will/might be downgraded to the Free Service. If you purchased your Paid Subscription through Rulers of the Sea and you cancel your payment or Paid Subscription and/or terminate any of the Agreements (1) after the Cooling-off Period is over (where applicable), or (2) before the end of the current subscription period, we will not refund any subscription fees already paid to us. If you wish to receive a full refund of all monies paid to Rulers of the Sea before the Cooling-off Period is over, you must Contact Customer Support. When we process any refund, we will refund amounts using the method you used for payment.

(4) NON-PERFORMANCE OR INADEQUATE PERFORMANCE OR DELAY TO THE OBLIGATIONS DERIVING FROM THE AGREEMENTS CAUSED BY FORCE MAJEURE OR ANY CAUSE, WHICH IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE OR BEYOND DEADEYE GAMES REASONABLE CONTROL.

Nothing in the Agreements removes or limits Deadeye Games liability for fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, death, or personal injury caused by its negligence, and, if required by applicable law, gross negligence.

THIS SECTION APPLIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

18 Third party rights

You acknowledge and agree that the owners of the Content and certain distributors are intended beneficiaries of the Agreements and have the right to enforce the Agreements directly against you. Other than as set out in this section, the Agreements are not intended to grant rights to anyone except you and Deadeye Games, and in no event shall the Agreements create any third party beneficiary rights. Furthermore, the rights to terminate, rescind, or agree to any variation, waiver, or settlement of the Agreements are not subject to the consent of any other person.

19 Entire Agreement

Other than as stated in this section or as explicitly agreed upon in writing between you and Deadeye Games, the Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and Deadeye Games and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral.

Please note, however, that certain aspects of your use of the Rulers of the Sea Services may be governed by additional agreements. That could include, for example, access to the Rulers of the Sea Services as a result of free Trials, or together with other services. When you are presented with an offer for such aspects of your use, you will be presented with any related additional agreement, and you may have an opportunity to agree to additional terms. Some of those additional terms might be listed on Rulers of the Sea’s website. To the extent that there is any irreconcilable conflict between any additional terms and these ToS, the additional terms shall prevail.

20 Severability, waiver, and interpretation

Unless as otherwise stated in the Agreements, should any provision of the Agreements be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreements, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.

Any failure by Deadeye Games or any third party beneficiary to enforce the Agreements or any provision thereof shall not waive Deadeye Games or the applicable third party beneficiary’s right to do so.

As used in these ToS, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”

21 Assignment

Deadeye Games may assign the Agreements, and any of its rights under the Agreements, in whole or in part, and Deadeye Games may delegate any of its obligations under the Agreements. You may not assign the Agreements, in whole or in part, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Agreements, to any third party.

22 Indemnification

You agree to indemnify and hold Deadeye Games harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) arising out of or related to: (1) your breach of the Agreements or any one of them; (2) any User Content you post or otherwise contribute; (3) any activity in which you engage on or through the Rulers of the Sea Services; and (4) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.

23 Choice of law, and mandatory arbitration

23.1 Governing Law / Jurisdiction

Unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, the Agreements (and any non-contractual dispute/claims arising out of or in connection with them) are subject to the laws of the Netherlands.

23.2 Class action waiver

Where permitted under the applicable law, you and Deadeye Games 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 action. Unless both you and Deadeye Games agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claim or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

23.3 Arbitration

If you are located in, are based in a jurisdiction in which this Section 24.3 is enforceable, the following mandatory arbitration provisions apply to you:

23.3.1 Dispute resolution and arbitration

You and Deadeye Games agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between you and Deadeye Games arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Agreements or to your relationship with Rulers of the Sea as a user of the Services (whether based in contract, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual arbitration. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees) except that the arbitrator may not award, declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.

23.3.2 Exceptions

Notwithstanding clause 24.3.1 above, you and Deadeye Games both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in a small claims court, (2) pursue enforcement actions through applicable local agencies where such actions are available, (3) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (4) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.

23.3.3 Arbitration rules

Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. Any arbitration between you and us will be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (the “ICC”) then in force (the “ICC Rules”) by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the ICC Rules, as modified by these Agreements.

Any arbitration will be conducted in the English language and unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, the law to be applied in any arbitration shall be the law of the Netherlands.

23.3.4 Time for filing

Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within ONE (1) MONTH after the date of the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period.

23.3.5 Notice

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of dispute to the other, by certified mail or courier (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail (“Notice”). The address of Deadeye Games for Notice is: Deadeye Games B.V., P.O. Box XX, The Hague, The Netherlands. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the notice is received, you or Deadeye Games may commence an arbitration proceeding.

During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Deadeye Games shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. In the event our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Deadeye Games shall pay you (1) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (2) the last written settlement amount offered by Deadeye Games in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (3) EUR 1,000.00, whichever is smaller. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purpose of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law. Except as required to enforce the arbitrator’s decision and award, neither you nor Deadeye Games shall make any public announcement or public comment or originate any publicity concerning the arbitration.

23.3.6 Modification

In the event that Deadeye Games makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to Deadeye Games’ address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 10 days of the change to Deadeye Games address for Notice, in which case your account with Rulers of the Sea shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, shall survive.

23.3.7 Enforceability

If the class action waiver at Section 24.2 is found to be unenforceable in arbitration or if any part of this Section 24.3 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 24.3 shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction described in Section 24.1 shall govern any action arising out of or related to the Agreements.

g) “Written”: by mail, electronic mail (email) or by any other means of communication capable of transferring written text and signatures;

h) “Gamer Shares”: the share certificates issued by STAK DG; and

i) These Terms and Conditions of Administration (hereafter also to be named: TCA) apply to the so-called Gamer Shares / share certificates.

SHARE CERTIFICATES

Article 1

STAK DG is the sole beneficiary of the shares it acquired and is, with the exclusion of everyone else, entitled to exercise all rights associated to those shares, such as voting rights, rights to claims and rights to dividends, all subject to the provisions of the Articles of Incorporation of DG BV and/or the Articles of Incorporation of STAK DG, as they read now or in the future, and with due observance of these TCA.

Article 2

  1. STAK DG will issue one share certificate for each share acquired.
  2. The share certificates are registered and have the same nominal value and numbers as the underlying shares for which they have been issued.
  3. No (physical) proof of certificate will be issued.
  4. In the event of a reduction of the nominal value of the shares, the nominal value of the share certificates will be reduced accordingly.
  5. There is no right to participate in meetings attached to certificates. However, we, STAK DG, have the intention to hold at least one meeting for share certificate holders each year.
  6. A share certificate holder cannot encumber his or her share certificates.
  7. A share certificate holder is obliged to fully comply with these TCA.

Article 3

  1. STAK DG collects the dividends and all other distributions (such as repayment on shares) on the shares. After receipt of the dividend (or other distribution), STAK DG will transfer the amount due to the relevant share certificate holder within two (2) working days.
  2. The rights of share certificate holders for the payment of dividends (or other distributions) will expire after five (5) years.
  3. If a choice has to be made between a cash payment or other values (such as stock dividend), STAK DG will inform the share certificate holders in advance (at least two (2) weeks before the day on which the choice has be made). STAK DG will give the share certificate holders the possibility to make their own choice as much as possible. The choice needs to be made no later than the fifth (5th) working day before the distribution. If the choice of the certificate holder has not been made known to STAK DG five (5) working days before the day on which the choice needs to be made, STAK DG will decide as it deems in the best interest of the share certificate holder.
  4. If the distribution as referred to in paragraph 1 of this article consists of shares of DG BV (for example stock dividends), the share certificate holder is not entitled to receive these shares. These shares will remain with STAK DG for the administration, against which the share certificate holder is entitled to an equal nominal amount of share certificates.
  5. If, pursuant to Article 2: 216 (3) of the Dutch Civil Code, STAK DG is obliged to compensate for the deficit that has arisen due to a single distribution on shares, plus the statutory interest, the share certificate holders that are entitled to the corresponding share certificate receipts and have received a corresponding payment, have to repay an equal amount on the share certificates, corresponding to the relevant shares, to STAK DG. The above also applies to compensation for a shortfall in the sale of shares by STAK DG pursuant to Article 2: 207 paragraph 3 of the Dutch Civil Code.
  6. Final payments on shares relating to the share certificates in the event of liquidation of DG BV, will be paid by STAK DG (no later than two (2) working days) to the share certificate holders against cancellation of the share certificates.

Article 4

  1. If DG BV issues (new) shares, the Board of Directors decides whether the share certificate holders may utilize a pre-emptive right, if such a right is granted to the shareholders. The Board will make such decision as it deems in the best interest of all share certificate holders. If the Board decides that the share certificate holders may exercise the pre-emptive right, STAK DG will invite the share certificate holders to inform STAK DG, within the period set by STAK DG, whether STAK DG should use this pre-emptive right with regard to the shares that are administered for the share certificate holder concerned. At the same time, the share certificate holder needs to provide resources to STAK DG to pay the amount due to DG BV at registration (this concerns the issue price of the shares plus one percent (1%) of administration costs). The shares acquired are held by STAK DG for management, against which the share certificate holder is entitled to an equal nominal amount of share certificates.
  2. In the event that STAK DG as a shareholder has a right to purchase shares pursuant to the Articles of Incorporation of DG BV, the Board of STAK DG decides whether the share certificate holders may use any right to purchase shares granted to the shareholders. The Board will decide as it deems in the best interest of the share certificate holders. If the Board of STAK DG decides that the share certificate holders may exercise the right to purchase shares, STAK DG will invite the share certificate holders accordingly and to inform STAK DG within a period set by STAK DG whether STAK DG must exercise this right with regard to the share certificates that are administered for the share certificate holder concerned. The holder of share certificates then simultaneously needs to make an amount, to be determined by STAK DG, available to STAK DG, which is sufficient to pay for the shares to be acquired (including one percent (1%) of administration costs). If the amount made available proves to be insufficient when the purchase price is determined, the share certificate holder will immediately complete the deficit. Any amount deposited in access will be returned to the share certificate holder without delay.
  3. The provisions of paragraph 1 of this article apply mutatis mutandis to the granting of rights to subscribe for shares.

REGISTER OF SHARE CERTIFICATE HOLDERS

Article 5

  1. The Board of Directors of STAK DG maintains a register that contains at least the names and (email) addresses of the share certificate holders and the numbers of the share certificates held.
  2. The register is regularly kept up to date.
  3. The share certificate holders are obliged to immediately notify STAK DG in writing of any change to the data entered in the register. STAK DG is obliged to register any changes to the register that it has been notified of.
  4. Every entry in the register is done under a recorded date.
  5. STAK DG is authorized at all times to renumber the certificates (and such).
  6. All notifications and invitations to share certificate holders are done by using the registered (email) addresses.
  7. The Board makes the register available at the STAK DG office for review by share certificate holders.
  8. At the request of a share certificate holder, the Board will provide him/her with a free extract from the register insofar as his/her share certificates are concerned.

CERTIFICATES UNDIVIDEDLY

Article 6

If share certificates belong to a community (and/or undivided estate), each member is entitled to exercise the rights attached to the share certificates in proportion to his/her share in the community of certificates. The members can only be represented vis-à-vis STAK DG by one person to be designated in writing.

DISPOSAL AND ENCUMBERMENT OF SHARES (Tag-Along Right)

Article 7

  1. STAK DG cannot pledge or otherwise encumber the shares it administers.
  2. STAK DG is not authorized to dispose of one or more shares it administers, unless it concerns:

  3. STAK DG is authorized (without the consent of the holders of share certificates) to dispose of all the shares it holds under title to management, if:
    1. It is obliged to do so on the basis of the shareholder agreement concluded between the shareholders of DG BV (hereinafter also to be named: Shareholder Agreement); and/or
    2. All other shareholders of the company simultaneously dispose of the shares they hold, provided that the proceeds received by STAK DG immediately or later (including payment of an escrow amount), will be transferred immediately (within two (2) working days) after receipt to the share certificate holders, in which case the share certificates will be cancelled.
  4. In the event that, under the Shareholder Agreement, STAK DG has a Tag-Along Right, as defined below, STAK DG informs the share certificate holders within one (1) week after notification of the Tag-Along Right in writing, together with the opportunity to make use of the Tag-along Right, to dispose share certificates in a similar manner as described in the following paragraphs, and confirm this ultimately five (5) working days before the day on which STAK DG must have made use of its Tag-Along Right. STAK DG will indicate the number of shares for which the Tag-Along Right can be exercised and the further conditions on the basis which the underlying shares can be disposed of.
  5. A Tag-Along Right means: if one shareholder (or group of shareholders) of DG BV wishes to dispose of shares in the capital of DG BV and sell to a third party, then according to the Shareholder Agreement, any of the other shareholders of DG BV will be able to dispose of a proportional share of the shares he/she holds and sell to that third party (that is, each shareholder is entitled to dispose the same percentage of shares he/she holds in the capital of DG BV, against the same price and under the same conditions).
  6. If share certificate holders have timely confirmed in writing that they want to make use of their Tag-Along Right as referred to in paragraph 5, then STAK DG will, to the extent possible, make use of its Tag-Along Right for the benefit of the relevant share certificate holders.

TRANSFER AND CONDITIONS REGARDING CERTIFICATES

Article 8

  1. The share certificates are freely transferable unless additional conditions have been imposed by the Board to the share certificate holder when acquiring the share certificates, with regard to the transfer of the share certificates (including, but not limited to, transfer restrictions, mandatory offering arrangements, lock-up arrangements and valuation arrangements).
  2. The conditions as referred to in the previous paragraph:
    • Can differ per share certificate and/or per share certificate holder;
    • Form an integral part of these TCA insofar as it concerns the share certificates concerned; and
    • Can be cancelled, changed and/or adjusted in accordance with the relevant applicable conditions.
  3. The transfer of share certificates can be effected either by notarial deed or by private/authentic deed. The transfer must always be communicated to STAK DG by the transferor and/or the transferee.
  4. The provisions of paragraph 1 also apply with regard to the allocation of share certificates upon division of a community.
  5. The transfer will only have an impact on STAK DG after STAK DG has been notified thereof.

COSTS

Article 9

STAK DG will charge costs for the certification, management and administration of shares to DG BV. STAK DG does not charge share certificate holders (additional) costs other than the one percent (1%) costs upon both buying and selling the share certificates.

For the sake of completeness, a change in the TCA can only be made by unanimous vote in a meeting of the STAK DG Board of Directors, in which all Board Members are present or represented. If not all Members of the Board are present or represented in a Board Meeting in which a proposal to change the TCA is on the agenda, then a second meeting will be convened, to be held within fourteen (14) days after the first, in which, regardless of the number of Board Members present, a valid decision will be made by unanimous vote. Similarly, it can be decided to fully or partially cancel share certificates issued by STAK DG or to dissolve STAK DG. Upon dissolution of STAK DG, all underlying shares will be transferred to the holders of the corresponding share certificates.

TAX IMPACT

Article 17

Each holder of share certificates is deemed, by obtaining these share certificates (whether or not upon issue), to declare towards STAK DG, the Board and DG BV to be aware of the possible tax consequences of his/her participation in the capital of DG BV through the share certificates and/or exercising his/her rights therefrom. STAK DG and the Board bear no responsibility towards the share certificate holders in this regard.
Insofar as taxes and/or social security contributions are due by STAK DG with regard to acquiring the share certificates by share certificate holders, STAK DG can recover these taxes and/or premiums from the share certificate holder concerned.

CHOICE OF LAW
