These Terms of Service ("Terms") apply to access to and use of www.ggCircuit.com, www.ggLeap.com, and the related software applications (together the “Service”) which includes without limitation the content, functions and features, applications, and gaming products and services available online and at a ggLeap enabled LAN center.  

As used in these Terms, "we" (and its variant, "our" and "ours") means and refers to ggCircuit, LLC ("ggCircuit"), and "you" (and its variant, "your" and "yours") means and refers to the person who is accessing or using the Service.  These Terms may be changed or updated by us at any time, but you can always find the most recent version here : https://media.ggleap.com/legal/English/ggCircuit_player_TOS.htm

Except as stated below, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 48 hours after they are initially posted. In addition, we may notify you of any amended terms by sending an email to the current email address we have for you. However, we suggest that you periodically check that page to make sure that your understanding of these Terms is up to date.

Acceptance of these Terms creates a binding legal agreement between you and us, and indicates your agreement to use the Service only in a manner that is consistent with these Terms. If you have questions about these Terms, please contact us at info@ggCircuit.com. Your use of the Service is entirely conditioned on and subject to your compliance with these Terms.  If you do not agree with these Terms, do not proceed to registration and do not use any part of the Service. These Terms are supplemented by the Terms of Service for additional services, such as ggLeap AtHome if you subscribe to the service.  Please go here [https://media.ggleap.com/legal/English/ggCircuit_player_TOS.htm] for the Terms of Service for ggLeap AtHome.  

BY CLICKING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS, OR BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE TERMS AND AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THEM.

1.         ACCOUNTS

To register for an account with us, you must provide certain information including, but not limited to, your name, email address, date of birth, user ID, and a password of your choice.   When you create an account, you will have access to ggLeap and ggCircuit.   Your ggLeap access allows you to play games at the LAN center by purchasing time for computer usage at the LAN center.   Other services that vary by LAN center include the ability to track and increase your computer time (for example, purchase a day pass or special offer), order snacks, or redeem prizes with coins.   Your ggCircuit access allows you to compete with gamers at other ggLeap enabled LAN centers, earn coins based on your game play, and redeem rewards for those coins (if available at the LAN center).  Your game stats are tracked and posted to leaderboards.

In addition, by creating an account, you agree that any information you provide to us about yourself will be true, accurate, current and complete when provided. This information is used to identify you as a "unique user" of the Service.  If we learn that you provided false or misleading registration information, we may terminate your access to or use of the Service without notice. You are responsible for all actions taken under your account and may only use the Service using your own user ID and password. You must use every effort to keep your password safe and should not disclose it to any other person. You agree to (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You may not transfer or sell your user ID to any other person. You may not permit, either directly or indirectly, any other person to use your user ID or password. We will use your account information in accordance with these Terms and the Privacy Policy which can be found at  

http://media.ggleap.com.s3.amazonaws.com/legal/English/ggCircuit_Privacy%20Policy.htm.  

We will assume (and by using the Service you warrant to us) that either you have the legal capacity to be bound by these Terms (including, that you are of sufficient age and mental capacity and are otherwise entitled to be legally bound in contract), or your parents have consented to your use of the Service and accept these Terms on your behalf.

2.         LAN CENTERS

When you create a ggLeap account at a LAN center, you may be required to agree to their privacy statement and other policies.  The information you provide when logged into ggLeap at a LAN center will be collected and stored as part of your ggLeap and/or ggCircuit account, including your account balance, game usage, coins, stats and other information tracked through the Service.    

3.         EVENTS

We may contact you directly by email to inform you of tournaments and special events in which you may participate.  When you register for events and activities through the Service, you may be required to agree to the official rules that may include eligibility, format and prize structure. You must register separately for each event or activity. Rules and eligibility may vary.

4.          FEES

It is free to create a ggCircuit account.  If you choose to purchase other subscriptions, you will need to select your method of payment when you set up your account. If subscriptions are provided by third parties, then you are subject to their terms and conditions.  You may change your subscription or payment information at any time by logging into your account.  You are responsible for all taxes applicable to the fees, if any, in any applicable jurisdiction.

Your account is automatically renewed each subscription term until you cancel by logging into your account and changing the subscription status or by contacting info@ggCircuit.com (if using this method, your subscription is not cancelled until you have received a confirmation from us).  The cancellation will be effective prior to your next subscription term.  It is your responsibility to pay all amounts as and when due. If you fail to make payment as and when due, we may suspend or terminate your account. Any such suspension or termination will not, however, relieve you of your obligation to pay the missed payment. Fees are nonrefundable, and no refunds will be made because, without limitation, ggLeap is unavailable due to a network configuration, software issue, hardware issue, or other failures.  

Fees for computer usage are determined by each LAN center and billed and processed directly by the LAN center.

5.         PRIVACY PRACTICES

We respect your privacy and have taken specific steps to protect it.
