Such actions include suspension, modification, or banning your account, as well as taking legal action. If we ban your account for any of our apps, you may not make another account for any of our apps.

We may also terminate accounts that have been inactive for 180 days. You may request to have your account deleted by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All rights, title, and interest in and to our service (including without limitation any games, source code, titles, characters, text, graphics, images, sounds, and musical compositions) are owned by HangZone. HangZone reserves all rights, including without limitation, all intellectual property rights, in connection with its service. You agree not to license, sell, rent, distribute, copy, edit, publish, reproduce, or make a derivative work from our materials or content.
User Submitted Content
Some of our apps allow users to submit or post information (such as the chat functionality). Users grant HangZone a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, fully paid, sublicensable, and transferable license to display, distribute, and reproduce the content. Except as prohibited by law, you waive any rights of attribution you may have in your user content. Users affirm that they possess the necessary licenses and permission to authorize HangZone to use this content. You affirm that any content you distribute through our apps or site is truthful and free of viruses. We have the right to delete or edit anything you post within our apps or site. Other users may be able to see content that you post, so don’t post anything you want to keep confidential. We are not responsible for another user taking credit for anything you post. We assume no responsibility for the conduct of our users, and we are not responsible for monitoring all posted content. We may monitor user submitted content at our discretion, but you bear the risk of being exposed to inappropriate user submitted content when using our apps and site.
You are responsible for your interactions with other users in our apps or site. We have the right, but not the obligation, to get involved and work out a dispute. You agree to help us resolve any inappropriate activity. You release us from any claims, demands, or damages involving such disputes.
In our apps, you may purchase a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use virtual currency (such as gems), in-game items, or other in-game content. We have the right to regulate, modify, or remove any virtual items at our discretion, with or without notice. HangZone does not have any liability if we exercise this right. Virtual goods are not transferable. All purchases within our apps are final and non-refundable. You are responsible for anyone who makes a purchase using your account. You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes for purchases made through your account. Virtual goods cannot be exchanged for real world money. You agree to update your payment information promptly, as necessary.
Some of our apps or site might display advertisements. These third party vendors may offer goods that involve fees or engage in other activities that are out of our control. We are not responsible for their content, services, or practices.
We value security, and make a reasonable effort to protect your account and all of your data. We cannot guarantee that your data is perfectly secure, as this is impossible for any company.

We will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or other similar damages, including but not limited to loss of revenues, losses of profits, or other intangible losses. HangZone will not be liable to you for more than you have paid HangZone in the 6 months preceding you first claim. If you have not paid us anything, you have no recourse other than to stop using our services and cancel your account.
You are responsible for your actions within our apps and site. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold HangZone harmless from any claim, liability, demand, damages, or other losses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, asserted by any third party resulting from your use of our apps or site, or any breach by you of these Terms.
