  3. This game is meant to be played in a competitive and/or a friendly way. However, any inappropriate behavior or abuse of the game system in a way that is deemed unfitting with the game concept may cause a person or persons to be banned. So far, some of the current bannable offenses in this game are:

    1. Using fake/alternate/multiple profiles in any way shape or form resulting in illegal profit transfer, harassement/impersonation/stalking of other users or advancing in our competitions.
    2. Using programs/methods to hide your IP or to automate various ingame actions such as collecting bonuses, buys, posts and nudges.
    3. Harassing or insulting other users in a derogatory manner (using posts, nudges, offending text in about-me/status sections or by calling names in public). This is a game and should not be used to harass an individual or to attack them in any personal way or cause an individual personal distress.
    4. Treating game administrators or moderators with disrespect or insults. They are here to help you, but they also have rules that they are meant to follow. No person should be rude to the people who are helping keep the game running.
    5. Posting any code in a user's wall that changes the appearance of their about me or profile in any permanent way.
    6. Using profile pictures or names of other users in your aboutme or posts without their explicit permission or impersonating other users by any means.
    7. Altering functional core components of the game such as owner, cash, profile picture and timer boards.
    8. Using any of the display elements (name, profile picture, name, tagline or aboutme) to request other users not to buy you or your pets (NFS) or not to change your tagline.
    9. Uninstalling and re-installing the game in a short period of time (which can not be disclosed) will give the user 1 penalty point. At 5 penalty points the user's account will be deactivated for 72 hours. Unneeded uninstalls are causing our infrastucture severe issues and are confusing the rest of the players.
    10. Selling using real money in-game virtual goods such as gifts and resets and scamming other users in general.
    11. Giving any kind of incentives (such as but not limited to tokens through paypal, real money etc) to other users just to keep their account active following instructions to let other users profit from their actions.
    12. Providing false birthdate or being under 13 years old.
    13. Being a registered sex-offender (since this game is available to minors as well).
    14. Spamming or abusing in general the application fan page.
    15. Using FFSNG logo in any form without prior written permission.
    16. Advertising competing services/games/sites or recruiting other users by any means.
    17. Harming FFSNG interests in any way shape or form.
    18. Having already violated the terms of service in one or more of our other games.

  4. As it is clearly stated in the "change name" window, your name should not be used as a status replacement. Using a distinct name, will help other users to identify you and will prevent confusion. Please note that further abuse of the name feature will disable the ability to change your name.

  5. If you are a minor, you are not allowed to use profile pictures or names that will make you appear as an adult.

  6. Buying pets is at your own risk and we take absolutely no responsibility for any game cash loss due to banned/uninstalled/blocked pets or bad ingame trading decisions.

  7. We reserve the right to alter the offered functionality of the site at anytime without any prior notice.

  8. All sales of virtual goods are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion even if your game account gets disabled for TOS violations or you decide to deactivate your game account or service termination.

  9. Private chat is just private. That means no other player, moderator or unauthorized user can see what you two say to each other. But you should avoid sending sensitive personal information such as passwords or credit card numbers. Please also note that your private posts are subject to your home country's applicable laws and we take no responsibility for them. You can also use the application provided report feature to report inappropriate content in order to take appropriate action.

  10. A player can be banned for violating the Terms of Service without warning or explanation and all purchases from the application are non-refundable.

  11. The minimum age allowed to be able to join the game is 13. Any account that does not meet this requirement, will be removed without any prior notice.
