ACCEPTANCE OF CONTRACT TERMS
The Ubisoft web group is comprised of various web sites and web pages owned and/or controlled and operated by Ubisoft (collectively, the "Sites").
The Sites are offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein and as outlined on any of the Sites.

Ubisoft is pleased to hear from their customers and welcomes their comments regarding Ubisoft's services and the Sites. Unfortunately, however, long-standing company policy does not allow us to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than those it has specifically requested. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Ubisoft's professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, we must, regretfully, ask that you do not send us any original creative materials such as game ideas or original artwork. While we do value your feedback on our services and products, we request that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions or materials.
If at our request you send certain specific submissions (e.g., Communications, including, postings and creative submissions) or, despite our request that you not send us any other creative materials, you send us creative suggestions, ideas, notes, drawings, concepts or other information (collectively, the "Submissions"), the Submissions shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of Ubisoft. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation of confidence on the part of Ubisoft, and Ubisoft shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Submissions. Without limitation of the foregoing, Ubisoft shall exclusively own all now known or hereafter existing rights to the Submissions of every kind and nature, in perpetuity, throughout the universe and shall be entitled to unrestricted use of the Submissions for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions. You waive any and all moral rights in any such Submissions as well as any claim to a right of credit or approval.
CHARGES, BILLING AND FREE TRIALS
You may be a Member of the Sites without paying Ubisoft to participate in a game or other activity. However, Ubisoft may, at its discretion charge monthly subscription fees to access certain areas of the Sites, play certain premium games and participate in related activities on the Sites. You must be a Member of Ubisoft and pay the subscription or other fees to participate in these activities. If you must pay a subscription fee to access part of our Site or play a particular game, this information will be posted on the applicable Site. You will be given the option to subscribe to the game by providing us with a valid credit card number and billing information. Current subscription fees and other billing information will be held as strictly confidential.
When you subscribe to play certain games, you may need to read and agree to a service or membership agreement that is specific to that game, and which may have terms that are slightly different than the ones that are found here. Your subscription to that game, and play of that game, is subject to those specific terms.
A. Payment by Credit Card.
You must use a credit card to pay for your subscription(s). When you provide credit card information to Ubisoft, you represent that you are the authorized user of the credit card that is used to pay the subscription or other fees. Each month that you use the Site, you agree and reaffirm that Ubisoft is authorized to charge your credit card for the subscription fee. You agree to promptly notify Ubisoft of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, and you agree to promptly notify Ubisoft if your credit card expires or is canceled for any reason.
B. Charges to Your Credit Card.
YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. Ubisoft reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time and Ubi will provide notice of any such change at least thirty (30) days advance. All changes will be posted on the Sites and you are responsible for reviewing the billing section of the Sites to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of the Sites for thirty (30) days after posting of the changes on the Sites means that you accept such changes. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your membership or a particular subscription at any time, but Ubisoft will not refund any fees that may have accrued to your Account before cancellation of your membership or subscription, and we will not prorate fees for any subscription. If your use of the Sites is subject to use or sales tax, then Ubisoft may also charge you for any such taxes, in addition to the subscription or other fees published in the billing section of the Site.
As the Account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your Account, including your family or friends. This means that, unless your Account or credit card information is obtained unlawfully or fraudulently by someone other than those authorized by you to use your Account, you will be responsible for all usage and purchases on your Account.
You may be required to report as taxable income the value of any prizes received by you. To collect a prize, you will be required to provide a valid Social Security number or other tax identification number and any other information reasonably required by Ubisoft. Ubisoft and/or any sponsor who provides a particular prize may report the value of the prize to taxing authorities.
D. Trial Subscriptions
For some games and activities offered through the Sites, we may offer a free trial subscription. If you accept a free trial subscription, we will begin to bill your Account for that game or activity when the free trial subscription expires, unless you cancel your subscription before that time. You are always responsible for any Internet service provider, telephone, and other connection fees that you may incur when using the Sites, even when we offer a free trial subscription.
The shops ("Shops") on the Sites provide you the opportunity to purchase various Ubisoft products and services.
You are responsible for paying the entire amount due on your purchase, including any applicable taxes, shipping and other charges assessed by the merchant.
You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and that you possess the legal right to use the Shops in accordance with the stated terms and usage policies. You hereby agree to supervise usage by, and be responsible for the actions of, any minors who use your computer and/or registration account to access the Shops.
