Terms of Service
For those who don't speak Legalese, here is a summary of our Terms of Service:
- When you create a game on Play My Code, you still own that game and its content. By using Play My Code to create said game, you are granting us a license to distribute the game on our site for other users and the general public to play. You are also granting a license to Play My Code users, so they can legally play your game or embed it on their website or blog. We can also do promotional activity with your game, such as feature it on our front page. This license is revoked if you delete your game from Play My Code.
- We hold the right to modify or remove any content from Play My Code if we feel this is necessary. This is to cover us should someone create a game which is hateful, pornographic, racist or otherwise offensive in some way, and also should a user upload content which does not belong to them. However, we will not use this right unless we absolutely have to.
- Further to the above: you must own all content uploaded to Play My Code, or hold a license to upload said content if you do not own it. If we receive notice that any content uploaded to Play My Code infringes copyright then we will most likely pull said content from the site.
- We also hold the right to suspend or terminate a user account without notice, again this is to protect us against users who might breach the Terms, upload offensive content or harass other users.
- Play My Code cannot be held responsible for any financial loss or damage occurring due to service outages, downtime, or bugs.
- If you want to use Play My Code to produce a game which promotes your business, band or other endeavour then that's fine. If you want to use Play My Code to prototype, demo or convert a game which is destined for release on another format (for example, some of our users have prototyped games which they later released for sale on iOS) then that's also fine so long as you own the content (and feel free to make in-game references to other versions of your games too). The license mentioned in the top paragraph above only covers versions of games created using Play My Code, versions on other formats are nothing to do with us.
- User Accounts are not transferable, users should not open multiple accounts and users are also responsible for the security of their account.
If you've still any questions then please read the complete terms below, or email email@example.com.
