Additionally, you may purchase Virtual Assets solely within the Software Product, or via an authorized platform, approved third-party online stores, application store, or other store approved and authorized by 505 (collectively, “Software Store”).

D. Virtual Assets may only be used within the Software Product, and 505, in its sole and exclusive discretion, may limit use of Virtual Assets to only one game. You acknowledge that the authorized user of any Virtual Assets may be changed at any time . The amount of Virtual Assets avaialble in your User Account may be reduced in accordance with your use of Virtual Assets within the Software Product. The use of any Virtual Assets constitutes a demand against and withdrawal from your available Virtual Assets in your User Account.

In the U.S., the determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Your arbitration fees and your share or arbitrator compensation will be governed by the ICC Rules. If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, 505 will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. Unless otherwise precluded by the Rules, the arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and 505 may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
(c) Exceptions to Alternative Dispute Resolution. You and 505 agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning information negotiations and binding arbitration: (1) any suit to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; (2) any suit to seek temporary injunctive relief that will remain in place only until an arbitrator can determine whether the relief should be continued, modified or removed, or (3) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a Party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights.
(d) Waiver of Right to be a Plaintiff or Class Member in a Purported Class Action or Representative Proceeding. You and 505 agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between 505 and you individually. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, (1) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER; (2) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; AND (3) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY OTHER PERSONS.
(e) Location of Arbitration. Subject to anything to the contrary as set forth in sub-section (b) above, the Arbitration will take place in Paris, France. You and 505 agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, this EULA will be governed by and construed in accordance with the UNIDROIT “Principles of International Commercial Contracts” and any such dispute shall be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with the said Rules of Arbitration. The seat of the arbitration court shall be in Paris, and the language of the ADR and arbitration shall be English.
