IF YOU USE GAMECIRCLE, YOU WILL BE BOUND BY THE AGREEMENT.
1. Amazon GameCircle
GameCircle provides game-related features, such as Whispersync for Games, achievements, leaderboards, and friends, for certain software games, applications and other digital products for devices ("Apps"). An App may offer all, some or none of the features of GameCircle.
2. Using GameCircle
2.1 Signing Into GameCircle. When using an Amazon device, you will be automatically signed in to GameCircle under the Amazon account used to register the device. When playing an App that offers GameCircle (a "GameCircle Enabled App") on non-Amazon devices, you will be given the option to sign in to GameCircle using your Amazon account. Once you sign in to GameCircle in one GameCircle Enabled App on a non-Amazon device, you may be automatically signed in to GameCircle for all future GameCircle Enabled Apps you play on that device. GameCircle cloud-based features such as Whispersync for Games and sharing with your friends are only available if you are signed into GameCircle.
2.2 Your GameCircle Nickname. If you are signed into GameCircle, we will assign a default nickname for you. You may change that nickname at any time. Your nickname will be public, unless you choose to use GameCircle in "hidden" mode. You may not select a nickname that is the real name of, or otherwise impersonates, another person, or is illegal, obscene, offensive, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable.
2.3 Leaderboards and Achievements. GameCircle and GameCircle Enabled Apps may include leaderboard and achievement features that allow you and others to track your scores and achievements (for instance, what levels you've completed in a game) and compare those scores and achievements with those of others. If you are signed into GameCircle, your scores and achievements for GameCircle Enabled Apps may be displayed on public leaderboards and shared with App publishers and will be displayed with your nickname unless you've chosen to use GameCircle in "hidden" mode.
2.4 Whispersync for Games. GameCircle includes Whispersync for Games, which stores your game play information for GameCircle Enabled Apps in the Amazon cloud and syncs that information to other devices on which you are signed into GameCircle. This allows you to keep your game play synchronized across multiple devices and to retain your game progress if you install a GameCircle Enabled App on a new device. The publisher of an App determines whether to enable Whispersync for Games for that App and what game play information is stored and synced. We are not liable if your game play information is not stored or available through Whispersync for Games for any reason.
2.5 Friends. GameCircle includes a friends feature which allows you to become "friends" with other GameCircle users. Your friends will be able to see information about you, including the games you own, your scores and achievements, when you play games, and other game play information.
3. Use of GameCircle and GameCircle Software
3.1 GameCircle Software. We may make available software, either on a standalone basis or incorporated in an App or other software, that you need to install on your device in order to use GameCircle on that device ("GameCircle Software"). Terms contained in the Amazon.ca Conditions of Use at https://www.amazon.ca/conditionsofuse apply to your use of the GameCircle Software.
3.2 Information Provided to Amazon. The GameCircle Software and GameCircle Enabled Apps will provide Amazon with information regarding your use of GameCircle and GameCircle Enabled Apps, as well as information about the device on which you use GameCircle and GameCircle Enabled Apps. For example, the GameCircle Software and GameCircle Enabled Apps may provide Amazon with information such as your user name, scores, achievements, friends, game play information, and how often and for how long you play GameCircle Enabled Apps., information about the device type, network connectivity, and location of the device running a GameCircle Enabled App, and information on why GameCircle may not be working. Any information we receive is subject to the Amazon.ca Privacy Notice located at www.amazon.ca/privacy.
4.1 Changes. We may modify, suspend or discontinue GameCircle, in whole or in part, at any time without notice.
4.2 Termination; Amendments. Your rights under the Agreement will automatically terminate without notice if you fail to comply with any of its terms. We may also terminate your right to use GameCircle at any time. In case of such termination, you must cease all use of GameCircle, and we may immediately revoke your access to GameCircle without notice to you. Our failure to insist upon or enforce your strict compliance with the Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights. We may amend the Agreement at our sole discretion by posting the revised terms on Amazon.ca with no additional notice to you. Your continued use of GameCircle after any amendment evidences your agreement to be bound by it. If any current or future provision of this Agreement is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provision of this Agreement.
4.3 Contact Information. For communications concerning the Agreement, please write to Amazon, Attn: Legal Department, P.O. Box 81226, Seattle, WA 98108-1226.
4.4 Disputes/Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim arising from or related to the Agreement or GameCircle is subject to the binding arbitration, governing law, disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability and all other terms in the Amazon.ca Conditions of Use at https://www.amazon.ca/conditionsofuse . You agree to those terms by entering into the Agreement or using GameCircle.
4.5 Limitation of Liability. The laws of certain jurisdictions, including Quebec's Consumer Protection Act, do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability or of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the below exclusions or limitations may not apply to you, and you might have additional rights. Without limiting the disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability in the Amazon.ca Conditions of Use, in no event will our or our licensors' total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) arising out of or related to your use or inability to use GameCircle or GameCircle Software exceed the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00). These limitations will apply to you even if the remedies fail of their essential purpose.
4.6 Governing Language. The parties have expressly requested that this Agreement and all documents related thereto be drafted in English. If this Agreement is translated into a language other than English, the English version will govern and prevail to the extent that there is any conflict or discrepancy.
