In order to purchase from the store, you need to sign up for an EVE: Valkyrie account. Please complete this form to create your account.
Thank you for your interest in EVE: Valkyrie, an interactive online game available in both virtual reality and traditional viewing formats ("Valkyrie" or the "Game"). Valkyrie is offered by CCP hf. ("CCP"), the Reykjavik, Iceland company who brought you EVE Online®, DUST 514® and Gunjack™ and who is dedicated to the creation of next generation games.
This EULA describes the terms and conditions under which you may (1) use the Software; (2) subscribe to, access and use Valkyrie; and (3) access and interact within the System. CCP may amend this EULA from time to time by posting an amended version that must be accepted before accessing the Game. Once you accept this EULA, the then-current version of the EULA shall apply each time you access the System or play Valkyrie.
By clicking the "ACCEPT" button (or if you bypass or otherwise disable the "ACCEPT" button, and still access or otherwise use the Software, the System, or the Game), you accept the terms and conditions in the EULA, including all Exhibits, if applicable. If you do not accept the terms and conditions in the EULA, you should click the "DECLINE" button, discontinue use of the Software, and not access the System or use Valkyrie.
You may play Valkyrie with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset (the "Rift"). The Rift is a product of Oculus VR, LLC ("Oculus"). By accepting this EULA, you furthermore acknowledge and accept that you have read and agree to the Oculus Terms of Service as provided for by Oculus VR, LLC, as presented on https://www.oculus.com/en-us/terms/.
This Game is rated "Teen" (T) by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). Its content has therefore been deemed generally suitable for ages 13 and up.
To play Valkyrie, you must: (i) purchase and download a copy of the Software; (ii) establish a valid account within the Game (an "Account") and keep that Account active by paying your Fees (if any) on a timely basis; (iii) obtain and maintain your own Internet access which has sufficient bandwidth to play the Game (Internet access is required to play Valkyrie; CCP is not responsible for your access to the Internet); and (iv) comply with this EULA.
You may establish only one (1) Account for each copy of the Software licensed. However, an Account may be permitted to have multiple characters stored within the Account. If you wish to establish another Account, you must obtain another license for the Software by downloading such license from CCP.
Establishing a New Account
To establish an Account, you must be a natural person who has reached the age of eighteen (or older, if the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction where you live is higher). You are responsible and liable for all activities conducted through your Account, regardless of who conducts those activities. You may not share your Account with anyone, or allow anyone else to access or use your Account. Joint or shared ownership or use of an Account by more than one person is prohibited.
Accounts may not be used for business purposes. Access to the System and playing Valkyrie is intended for your personal entertainment, enjoyment, and recreation, and not for corporate, business, commercial, or income-seeking activities. Business entities and anyone who is acting for or on behalf of a business or for business purposes may not establish an Account, access the System, or play Valkyrie. Accessing the System or using the Game for commercial, business, or income-seeking purposes is strictly prohibited. Notwithstanding the above-mentioned, you may publicly share a live video stream of your gameplay on streaming video platforms and websites, as well as to publicly share videos of your own gameplay.
Passwords and Names
During the registration process, you will either be given a password automatically or asked to select one ("Password"). You may not disclose your Password to anyone or allow anyone to use your Password to access the System or play Valkyrie. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Password and for any damage, harm, lost or deleted characters, etc., resulting from your disclosure of your Password, or from use by any person of your Password. You may not obtain, attempt to obtain, use, or attempt to use the Password of anyone else. You are responsible for remembering your Account information and Password.
You will be assigned a login name and a character name during the registration and character creation process. You may not allow anyone to use your login name or character name to access the System or play Valkyrie. No player may use the character name of another player to impersonate or falsely represent his or her identity. You may not obtain, attempt to obtain, use, or attempt to use the login name or character name of anyone else.
You are encouraged to use a pseudonym for your character name, but you may not choose a name that violates anyone's copyrights, trademarks, publicity rights, or other rights. Acceptance by the System does not mean that your chosen character name does not violate anyone's rights. You are responsible for any liability incurred by you, CCP, or anyone else due to the character name you choose. CCP retains the right to reject any character name it determines, in its sole discretion, is unlawful, indecent, obscene, discriminatory, or otherwise violates standards of good taste.
Inappropriate conduct / communication
CCP may establish rules of conduct (discussed below) for users accessing the System and may, but is not obligated to, monitor and take action regarding inappropriate conduct. Nonetheless, it is possible that at any time there may be language or other material accessible on or through the System that you may consider inappropriate or offensive. You acknowledge that other users may transmit communications or content, or access to content, that you may consider inappropriate or objectionable. CCP does not, as a matter of policy, pre-screen the communications or content transmitted by each user, and is in no way responsible for the communications and content transmitted by users of the Game.
You are not permitted to transfer your Account nor your character to another person.
Any attempted character transfers are prohibited and void, and shall not be binding on CCP. A transfer or attempted transfer of a character is entirely at the risk of the parties to such transaction. CCP is not liable to any person (whether transferor, transferee, or otherwise) for any acts, omissions, statements, representations, defaults, or liabilities of the parties in connection with such a transaction.
When playing Valkyrie, it may be possible to purchase items for use within the Game in return for specific item charges. You will be informed of any applicable download fees, item charges, or any other fees (together the "Fees"), as well as applicable payment terms immediately prior to purchase. All items for use within the Game may expire on the earlier of their stated expiration date, the termination or expiration of your Account, as a result of Software upgrades or other changes to the Game, or on the date CCP ceases to offer or support the Game. CCP reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department.
Fees may be payable in U.S. Dollars, Euros, British Pounds Sterling, or such other currency as stated at the time of purchase, and are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise in the EULA. Failure to pay any such Fees will constitute a material breach of this EULA, and your Account may be immediately suspended or terminated at CCP's discretion.
You are responsible for reviewing the Fees section of the Game for changes in the Fee or payment terms. If a change is unacceptable to you, you may, as your sole and exclusive remedy, terminate the EULA and close your Account as described in Sections 5 and 13 below. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and for all hardware, software, Internet service, and other costs you incur to access the System.
By CCP for Termination of the Game
CCP does not guarantee that it will continue to offer access to the System or support the Game. CCP may, in its sole discretion and at any time, cease to provide any or all of the items or services offered in connection with Valkyrie (including access to the System and any or all features or components of the Game), terminate the EULA, close all Accounts, and cancel all of the rights granted to you under the EULA. CCP may communicate such termination to you in any of the following manners: (i) when you log into your Account; (ii) in a notice on CCP's website; (iii) via electronic mail; or (iv) in another manner that CCP deems suitable to inform you of the termination. If CCP terminates the EULA pursuant to this section, you will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Fees.
By CCP for Breach or Misconduct
Without limiting CCP's rights or remedies, CCP may immediately and without notice discontinue or suspend access to the System through your Account, and any and all other Accounts that share the name, phone number, e-mail address, Internet protocol address, MAC address or credit card number with the discontinued or suspended Account, in the event of (i) a breach of the EULA (including the rules of conduct) by you or any user under your Account; or (ii) unauthorized access to the System or use of the Game by you or any user under your Account.
CCP, in its sole discretion, may immediately and without notice terminate the EULA, close all your Accounts, and cancel all rights granted to you under the EULA if: (i) you fail to pay the Fees when due; (ii) CCP is unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide; (iii) you or anyone using any of your Accounts materially breaches the EULA, makes any unauthorized use of the System or Software, or infringes the rights of CCP or any third party; or (iv) CCP becomes aware of gameplay, chat, or user activity under your Account that is, in CCP's discretion, inappropriate, offensive, or in violation of the rules of conduct. CCP may, but is not obligated to, provide notice of termination via electronic mail, or any other means reasonably calculated to reach you.
CCP reserves the right to terminate any and all other Accounts in Valkyrie, EVE, DUST and/or Gunjack that share the name, phone number, e-mail address, Internet protocol address, or credit card number with a closed Account. Termination by CCP under this section shall be without prejudice to or waiver of any and all of CCP's other rights or remedies, all of which are expressly reserved, survive termination, and are cumulative. You will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Fees for a termination pursuant to this section.
You may terminate the EULA with regard to any or all of your Accounts at any time, upon notice to CCP via electronic mail. Upon termination of the EULA, CCP will close your Account and discontinue or suspend access to the System through your Account; you will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Fees in the event of such termination.
If a change in the Fees or payment terms is unacceptable to you, you may, as your sole and exclusive remedy, terminate the EULA and close all of your Accounts. You may terminate the EULA by notifying CCP via electronic mail to CCP at firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days after the later of (a) the date that CCP has posted the change on its website; or (b) the date the change has impacted your Account (e.g., your credit card has been charged). Your notice must state: (i) that you do not agree to the change, specifically describing the change, and that you wish to terminate the EULA; (ii) your character name; and (iii) your login name. You will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Fees in the event of such termination. If you continue to access the System or use Valkyrie more than thirty (30) days after the later to occur of (a) or (b) above, without following the termination procedure set forth above, you shall be deemed to have accepted the change and waive your rights to terminate under this section.
If an amendment alters a term of the EULA that is unacceptable to you, you may, as your sole and exclusive remedy, terminate the EULA and close your Accounts. You may terminate the EULA by: (a) clicking the "DECLINE" button when you are prompted to review and agree to the amended EULA; or (b) notifying CCP via electronic mail to CCP at email@example.com within thirty (30) days after the amended EULA was communicated to you, provided that you have not clicked the "ACCEPT" button, accessed the System, or played the Game during that period. Your notice must state: (i) that you do not agree to the amended EULA, specifically describing the amendment(s) with which you disagree, and that you wish to terminate the EULA; (ii) your character name; and (iii) your login name. You will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Fees in the event of such termination. If you click "ACCEPT" or otherwise continue to access the System or play the Game, you shall be deemed to have accepted the amended EULA and waive your rights to terminate under this section.
If for any reason the EULA is terminated with regard to your Account, the Account will be closed, and all rights granted to you under the EULA will terminate with regard to the closed Account. You must discontinue your use of the Software, you may not access the System or play the Game under any closed Account, and all the attributes of the Account, including characters, items, and currency in the Account, will be lost. If for any reason the EULA is terminated, you will not be entitled to compensation for the past time you spent playing Valkyrie, for the real or projected value of your Account, or for any other compensation.
Users whose Accounts have been closed may not access the System or play Valkyrie in any manner or for any reason, including through any other Account, without the express written permission of CCP. Users of active Accounts may not knowingly allow former users whose Accounts have been closed to use the active user's Accounts.
Specifically Restricted Conduct
Your continued access to the System and license to play the Game is subject to proper conduct. Without limiting CCP's rights to control the Game environment, and the conduct of the users within that environment, CCP prohibits the following practices:
You may not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the System.
You may not use your own or third-party software to modify any content appearing within the Game environment or change how the Game is played.
You may not use your own or any third-party software, macros or other stored rapid keystrokes, or other patterns of play that facilitate acquisition of items, currency, objects, character attributes, rank, or status at an accelerated rate when compared with ordinary Game play. You may not rewrite or modify the user interface or otherwise manipulate data in any way to acquire items, currency, objects, character attributes, or beneficial actions not actually acquired or achieved in the Game.
You may not use the Software, or any information accessible through the System, to bypass the System login architecture or create or provide any other means through which the System may be accessed and/or the Game may be played by others, as, for example, through server emulators.
You may not submit any content to any chat room or other public forum within the Game that is harassing, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, libelous, or defamatory, encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liabilities, or is unlawful in any other way, including without limitation the submission of content that infringes on a third-party's intellectual property rights.
Selling Items and Objects
Within Valkyrie, you may be permitted to transfer, trade, auction, sell, buy, or otherwise accept virtual goods and other content appearing within the Game, including without limitation character attributes, items, currency, and objects, but excluding characters themselves (which may not be sold or transferred from their associated Account). All such transfers must occur within the Game environment, and may not be transferred, traded, auctioned, sold, purchased, or otherwise accepted outside of the Game environment. In addition, you may not transfer, trade, auction, sell, buy, or accept any offer to transfer, trade, auction, sell, or buy any content appearing within the Game environment, including without limitation characters, character attributes, items, currency, and objects, for real world currency. You may not encourage or induce any other person to participate in such a prohibited transaction. The buying, selling, trading, auctioning, or other transfer (or any attempt at doing so) of characters, character attributes, items, currency, or objects outside of the Game environment or for real world currency, whether through online auctions, newsgroups, postings on message boards, or any other means, is strictly prohibited by the EULA and a violation of CCP's proprietary rights in the Game. Unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, you acknowledge that any revenue generated by you in violation of this section constitutes proceeds from the sale of CCP's proprietary property, and that upon demand of CCP, you shall account for and pay over to CCP all such revenues.
Compliance with Rules of Conduct
Please note that the terms of CCP's privacy and cookies policy will apply in addition to the terms of this Section 7. The privacy and cookies policy is available at http://www.ccpgames.com/en/privacy-policy.
Except for certain information in your Account (discussed below), all transmissions by you to the System are not private.

CCP and/or its designated affiliates and representatives may monitor communications made by or received from you. You should not provide private information to any other user in the Game. CCP shall not be responsible for the consequences of any such disclosure by you.
You may encounter and converse with people who are rude, offensive, belligerent, and who may use indecent, obscene, and/or threatening or harassing language while playing the Game. You may report any instances of such behavior to CCP. CCP will investigate and take such measures as CCP, in its sole judgment, determines are reasonable under the circumstances. You may encounter behavior of others that you may view as insulting, demeaning, offensive, threatening, or harassing. You assume all risk associated with playing the Game, and CCP assumes no responsibility for the conduct of any other players, and shall not be liable to you or any other person for their conduct.

Any storage or use of User Personal Details will be subject to compliance with CCP's privacy and cookies policy, which may be found at http://www.ccpgames.com/en/privacy-policy. As noted below in "Transfer and Sharing of User Data", your User Personal Details and User Gameplay Information may be transferred, collected, or stored in locations outside the European Economic Area, including the United States and the People's Republic of China. Any transfer of User Data to, or collection or storage by, an affiliate of CCP shall be subject to a binding duty of confidentiality.

You acknowledge and agree that CCP may collect and store User Gameplay Information about you, both as an individual and aggregated with the User Gameplay Information of other users of the Game and the System.

SECURITY AND DISCLOSURE OF USER DATA
CCP does not guarantee that User Data transmitted to the System, including without limitation information in your Account and/or User Personal Details, will not be disclosed to third parties. While CCP's aim is to keep your User Data confidential and CCP employs security measures to protect the System, third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions or private communications, or access data within the System.
CCP may (and you hereby expressly authorize CCP to) disclose information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials, as CCP, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible crimes or to respond to judicial, regulatory, agency, or similar inquiries.
You further agree that in the event of a failure in the Game, the System and/or the Software, CCP may provide crash dump information (which is information on the state of the System when a crash occurs, and may include your User Data) to third parties under suitable confidentiality restrictions in order to review, analyze, and provide reports on such information to determine the cause or correction of the failure.
You agree that CCP may remotely monitor your Game hardware solely for the purpose of establishing whether, in playing the Game and accessing the System, you are using software created or approved by CCP or its partners, or whether you are using unauthorized software created by you or a third party in contravention of Section 6.
In rare instances, some users may experience seizures when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. Exposure to certain light patterns or backgrounds on a video monitor may induce an epileptic seizure, even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or epilepsy. Players using the Rift should carefully review all health and safety warnings from Oculus before using the Rift.
Subject to the other terms of the EULA, CCP grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license to use the Software and its accompanying documentation solely in connection with accessing the System in order to play Valkyrie using a single valid Account.
For each valid Account you maintain, you may use only one copy of the Software. You must download a separate license to the Software for each additional Account you register; e.g., if you have 2 Accounts, you must have 2 licensed copies of the Software. You may make one (1) copy of the Software for backup or archival purposes.
License to Access the System to Play the Game
Upon establishing a valid Account, and subject to your continued compliance with the EULA, CCP grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable license to access the System, and to access and use the Game Content and User Content (as defined below) in order to play Valkyrie. You may download and exchange Game Content and User Content exclusively via a valid Account, solely to play the Game, for purposes permitted by, and in a manner consistent with, the EULA. Additionally and to the extent permitted by the System, you may make a single copy for your own purposes in playing the Game.
Any and all rights not expressly granted by CCP herein are reserved, and no license, permission, or right of access or use not granted expressly herein shall be implied.
You may not intercept any information accessible through the System for any purpose other than playing Valkyrie in accordance with the EULA. You may not access the System or upload, download, or use information accessible through the System, other than as permitted by the EULA.

If the Software and/or the System contain license management technology, you may not circumvent or disable that technology. This section shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
CCP may from time to time update or otherwise modify the Software electronically, or require you to install updates, patches, or fixes to the Software ("Updates"). Updates may change the Game's terms, conditions, features, items, mechanics, or any other element of the Game. You must install such Updates before you will be allowed to proceed to play the Game or access the System. If you fail to install the new release when required, CCP shall not be responsible in any way for your inability to access the System or play Valkyrie, and you shall not be entitled to receive a refund of any prepaid Fees or any other form of compensation. You hereby grant CCP permission to: (i) extract hardware system profile data from your hardware; (ii) extract information from your computer's file directories pertaining to the Game and your ability to access the System; and (iii) download to your hardware any content, Game files and any data related to the operation of the Game.

New Releases of the Software
You are not entitled to receive any new releases of the Software, or any expansion packs, downloadable content, or similar products under the EULA, but CCP may, in its sole discretion, offer any or all of the foregoing to you. CCP may provide new releases or otherwise enhance the Software at any time, in its sole discretion, without obligation to you. Any such new release or other enhancement of the Software may change the Game's terms, conditions, features, items, mechanics, or any other element of the Game. Periodically, CCP will require all users to migrate to new releases of the Software in order to continue accessing the System and playing Valkyrie. You will be informed when a new release is available when logging in and must install the new release before you will be allowed to play the Game or access the System.

While CCP attempts to have the System available at most times, CCP does not guarantee that the System will always be available. The System may be suspended or interrupted from time to time or indefinitely, in CCP's sole discretion, for such items as maintenance, repair, installation of Updates, installation of new releases, or termination of the current version. Your license does not entitle you to a refund for periods the System may be unavailable.
Ownership of Software, System, and Game
As between you and CCP, CCP is the sole and exclusive owner of the Software, System, Game, and Game Content (as defined below). The Software, System, Game, and all Game Content are protected by law governing copyrights, trademarks, and other proprietary rights. CCP reserves all rights not expressly stated herein.
The Game is comprised of, without limitation, software code, programs, routines, subroutines, objects, files, data, characters (and items, currency, objects, and attributes comprising or associated with a character or an Account), graphics, sound effects, music, animation, video, text, content, layout, design, and other information downloaded from and accessible through the System (collectively, the "Game Content"). CCP, its affiliates, licensors, and/or suppliers retain all of their right, title, and interest (including without limitation all intellectual property rights) in and to the Software, System, Game, and all Game Content, and no rights thereto are transferred to you, except for the limited license granted above.
Rights to Certain Content
You have no interest in the value of your time spent playing the Game, e.g., by the building up of the experience level of your character and/or the items your character accumulates during your time playing the Game. Your Account, and all attributes of your Account, including without limitation all actions, teams, corporations, alliances, titles, characters, names, logos and all objects, currency, and items acquired, developed or delivered by or to characters as a result of play through your Accounts, are the sole and exclusive property of CCP, including any and all copyrights and other intellectual property rights in or to any and all of the same, all of which are hereby expressly reserved.
Without limiting its rights in any way, and subject to the other terms of the EULA, CCP shall have the right to display and publish any information (except certain User Personal Details in your Account) relating to any character in your Account, for example, in charts, lists, and other compilations, without notice or any compensation to you whatsoever.
You hereby irrevocably, and without additional consideration beyond the rights granted to you herein, assign to CCP any and all right, title, and interest you have, including copyrights, in or to any and all information you exchange, transmit, or upload to the System or while playing the Game, including without limitation all files, data, and information comprising or manifesting groups, corporations, teams, titles, characters, names, logos and other attributes of your Account, together with all objects and items acquired or developed by, or delivered by or to characters, in your Account. To the extent that any such rights are not assignable, you hereby grant CCP an exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, assignable, royalty-free license, fully sublicensable through multiple tiers, to exercise all intellectual property and other rights, in and to all or any part of such information, in any medium now known or hereafter developed.
The System may allow you to communicate information, such as by posting messages in chat rooms, on bulletin boards, via voice chat, and other user-to-user areas (collectively, "User Content").
User Content that you cause to be communicated to the System may not (i) violate any statute, rule, regulation, or law; (ii) infringe or violate the intellectual property, proprietary, privacy or publicity rights of any third party; (iii) be discriminatory, defamatory, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or harmful to minors; or (iv) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, disabling code, worms, time bombs, "clear GIFs," cancelbots, or other computer programming or routines that are intended to, or which in fact, damage, detrimentally interfere with, monitor, intercept, or expropriate any data, information, packets, or personal information.
CCP may take any action it deems appropriate regarding any User Content, if CCP believes, in its sole discretion, that such User Content violates the EULA, or that such User Content may (i) expose CCP or its licensors and/or suppliers to liability; (ii) damage CCP's relationships with any of its respective suppliers, licensors, Internet service providers, or other users of Valkyrie; or (iii) harm anyone or harm CCP's reputation or goodwill.
You hereby grant CCP an exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, assignable, royalty-free license, fully sublicensable through multiple tiers, to exercise all intellectual property and other rights, in and to all or any part of your User Content, in any medium now known or hereafter developed.
Violation of CCP's proprietary rights is a material breach of the EULA, in the event of which CCP may suspend your Account, terminate the EULA, and take whatever additional action CCP deems appropriate under the circumstance. The foregoing is without prejudice to or waiver of any and all of CCP's other rights and remedies, all of which are expressly reserved, survive termination, and are cumulative.
The Software, System, Game, all Game Content, and all other services and material provided in connection therewith, are provided "AS IS," with all faults, and without warranty of any kind. You assume all risk of use and all risk associated with accessing the System and playing the Game.
To the greatest extent allowed by applicable law, CCP disclaims all warranties, whether express or implied, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for particular purpose, and non-infringement. There is no warranty against interference with your enjoyment of the Game. CCP does not warrant that the operation of the System or your access to the System, or that your use of the Software, will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the System or Software will be compatible with your hardware and software. In the event of a malfunction of, or your inability to use, the Software you have downloaded, your sole and exclusive remedy shall be a replacement download, and CCP shall have no liability for the faulty download.
While CCP attempts to have the System available at most times, CCP does not guarantee that the System will always be available, or that the System will not become unavailable during Game play. The System may become unavailable for a number of reasons, e.g., during the performance of maintenance to the System, for the implementation of new software, for emergency situations, and due to equipment or telecommunications failures. You shall have no right to bring any claim, demand, action, or proceeding against CCP in respect of the same.
In no event shall CCP, its affiliates, licensors, or suppliers be liable to you or to any third party for any special, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages (including without limitation, lost profits, or lost or corrupted data), arising out of or in connection with your Account, the System, Software, Game, Game Content, User Content, EULA, or any other services or materials provided in connection therewith, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not CCP is advised of the possibility of such damages, and even if any stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
Nothing in this EULA shall limit any party's liability in respect of fraud, death, personal injury, or anything else in respect of which liability may not be limited as a matter of law. If any of the foregoing disclaimers or limitations of liability in this Section 11 or elsewhere in the EULA are declared to be void or unenforceable, then CCP's liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law. The remedies set forth herein are exclusive and in lieu of all other remedies, oral or written, express or implied.
You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless CCP and its affiliates, licensors, and suppliers, and their respective employees, contractors, officers, and directors, from any and all claims, loss, damages, and demands, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of: (i) your use or misuse of the Software; (ii) your access to the System; (iii) any activities conducted through your Account (whether by you or another person); and (iv) your playing of the Game.
CCP may, in its sole discretion, amend the EULA from time to time by posting an amended version and notifying you when you attempt to log in to the System. If the EULA is amended, you will be asked to review the amended EULA when you log into your Account, and to indicate and confirm your acceptance of the amended EULA by clicking the "ACCEPT" and/or "CONFIRM" buttons. You must accept the EULA in order to continue to access the System or play the Game.

Where permitted, you hereby expressly waive and agree not to raise any and all objections based on personal jurisdiction, venue and/or inconvenience of such forum, and agree to the jurisdiction of the Icelandic courts. However, CCP shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief in any jurisdiction in which this EULA is being breached or CCP's interests are being prejudiced.
