9. Social Networking Features and Game Forums

While using the Applications, you may enable interactivity between the Applications and certain social networking services, such as Facebook, Google +, or Twitter.  These services enable you and NEXON to communicate with third parties. In addition, you may display the information generated from your participation in games on these social networks. You may also engage in Application forums for the purpose of communicating with other players about topics such as game strategy.

You understand that much of the information included in the social networking features and the forums is from other players who are not employed by or under the control of NEXON. You further acknowledge that a large volume of information is available in the social networking features and the forums and that people participating in them occasionally Post messages or make statements, whether intentionally or unintentionally, that are inaccurate, misleading, deceptive, abusive or even unlawful. We neither endorse nor are responsible for such messages or statements, or for any opinion, advice, information or other utterance made or displayed by you or the other players. The opinions expressed reflect solely the opinion(s) of you and the other players and may not reflect our opinion(s). We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in Postings, for hyperlinks embedded in messages or for any results obtained from the use of the information. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on such information. You should be aware that, when you disclose information about yourself using a social networking feature or a forum, the information is being made publicly available and may be collected and used by other users.

You may also be awarded points to use for virtual “shopping.”  These points have no "real world" value, but may be exchanged by you for designated items. Certain items have an expiration date, while others have no expiration date.  Each item that you obtain using virtual currency or points will be included in your account until the earlier of that item's expiration date, your account's expiration or termination date, or such date when the Application is discontinued. REGARDLESS OF THE CONSIDERATION OFFERED OR PAID IN EXCHANGE FOR VIRTUAL CURRENCY, YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN THE ITEMS OBTAINED WITH VIRTUAL CURRENCY.  We have no liability for loss of your items from your account, provided we will use reasonable efforts to replace such items under certain circumstances in our reasonable discretion.

We reserve the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or to refuse to provide you with any item.  Verification of certain information applicable to a transaction involving an item may be required prior to our acceptance thereof. Price and availability of the items are subject to change without notice.  You agree that you cannot and have no right to sell or otherwise transfer any of the items, virtual currency or any other content or information included in the Applications, in whole or in part, to any third person or entity whatsoever, including, without limitation, on Internet auction sites (e.g., eBay, IGE), hack sites, private server sites, gold farming sites or in return for anything of value (including "real" money) or otherwise.  You acknowledge that the virtual currency acquired through the Applications is not real currency or any type of financial instrument and is not redeemable for any sum of money from us at any time.

Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising under or out of or related to your use of the Applications or these Terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.  Any claim by you that may arise in connection with these Terms will be compensable by monetary damages and you will in no event be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief.


16. Links

The Applications may contain links to other Internet web sites, including affiliated web sites, which may or may not be owned or operated by NEXON.  We have not reviewed all of the web sites that are linked to the Applications, and we have no control over such sites.  We are not responsible for the content of such web sites, any updates or changes to such sites, or the privacy or other practices of such sites, and the fact that we offer such links does not indicate any approval or endorsement of any material contained on any linked site.  We are providing these links to you only as a convenience.  Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the terms of use and practices of any linked site.  Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download from such web sites is free of malicious code, viruses, worms, etc.
