The Service is operated by Eidos Inc., a Californian corporation, whose principal place of business is at 651 Brannan Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94107 (referred to as "Eidos" or "we"). The Service and Online Features of the Game are made available only to holders of a valid registration and UserID entitling them to access and use the Online Features (referred to as "you" or "user") strictly upon and subject to the terms and conditions set out or referred to below. 

Contact Address

All technical or other queries and complaints in connection with the Service should, unless otherwise specified, be sent to the following contact address:

651 Brannan Street
4th Floor
San Francisco,
CA 94107, USA
for the attention of: Community Administrator
Community@eidos.com

You may be only moments away from enjoying the fantastic online experience offered by the Service. However, before you do, please take the trouble to read the terms and conditions in the document below. Please don't just scroll down to the end and click "accept" without reading them. This document includes a number of important Parts:

a. the Terms of Service. This Part includes information about the terms upon which we provide the Service, Service conditions and important limitations that, by agreeing to use the Service, you will be bound by. However, your statutory rights with respect to any goods supplied as part of the Service are not affected.

b. the Rules of Play. We want everyone to have fun and get the most out of the online experience. This Part sets out your responsibilities and the rules which we expect all users to abide by.

c. Important Reminders. While online, the Service may allow users to communicate with friends and strangers from across the globe by text and voice chat. The Service may also include community forums and other chat rooms. These communications are public and so can be viewed not just by friends but anyone else who is currently connected to the on-line mode of the Game. This Part includes a number of guidelines which you should always follow whenever communicating with others over the Internet, particularly with people you do not know. They are there for your own protection.

d. the Eidos Online Privacy Policy. We take matters of personal privacy seriously. This Part describes what we will and won't do with your personal information.  

In addition, we know how attached you can get to your games but you need to look after yourself too.  We strongly recommend that you pay attention to the Health warnings and Guidelines included in the Manual accompanying your game.

THIS DOCUMENT AND ALL TERMS, CONDITIONS, POLICIES AND NOTICES CONTAINED OR REFERRED TO IN IT IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND EIDOS RELATING TO PROVISION OF THE SERVICE AND THE ONLINE FEATURES ("AGREEMENT").  THE SERVICE AND ONLINE FEATURES ARE OFFERED TO YOU CONDITIONAL UPON YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OF THE TERMS, CONDITIONS, POLICIES AND NOTICES SET OUT OR REFERRED TO IN THIS DOCUMENT WITHOUT MODIFICATION.  BY COMPLETING THE ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR THE SERVICE AND SELECTING "ACCEPT" BELOW YOU ARE AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT.
IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT YOU SHOULD SELECT " DECLINE", CANCEL THE REGISTRATION PROCESS (WHERE YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A VALID REGISTRATION FOR THE SERVICE) AND NEITHER USE THE SERVICE NOR ACCESS OR PLAY THE ONLINE FEATURES ASSOCIATED WITH THE GAME.
A PRINTABLE COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT (INCLUDING OUR ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY) CAN BE FOUND AT http://www.eidos.com/online.  
A. Terms of Service

1. The Basics of the Service and Registration

1.1 Availability of the Service and Online Features is subject to you completing a registration for the Service and holding a valid UserID.  If you already have an existing UserID issued by Eidos or any of its affiliates in connection with the Service then you may be able to use that to access the Online Features associated with the Game subject to your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as stated above. Not everyone is entitled to register for the Service. For example, registration for the Service may be subject to age restrictions applicable to you in your territory or by virtue of laws applicable to you in certain territories.  In particular we have special rules applicable to children and your attention is specifically drawn to paragraph 3 below and the provisions of the Eidos Online Privacy Policy for further information in this regard.

1.2 Once you have accepted this Agreement and have satisfactorily completed the online registration process by following the relevant instructions on-screen, you will be entitled to use the Service upon the terms and subject to the conditions in this Agreement.  Your registration is personal to you and may not be transferred.  Registration will entitle you to use the Service in order to play the Online Features of the Game only.  

1.2 As part of the registration process you will select a unique user name ("UserID")and password ("UserPassword").  You should choose a UserID which does not identify your real name.  Moreover, we strongly urge you not to choose a UserID which could possibly be used to identify you, your address, your age, postal/zip code, email address or telephone number.  You cannot use a UserID which is already allocated to another user and it is a condition of your rights to use the Service that you do not choose a UserID which is obscene or otherwise offensive.  We may but are not obliged to filter certain words and phrases which we consider unacceptable. However, while any registration process we may adopt may filter out certain unacceptable words and phrases it can never be a comprehensive filter.  We therefore reserve the right to terminate your registration for the Service (or otherwise require you to re-register with a new acceptable UserID) at a future date if, in our discretion, we consider your UserID or the use of it is offensive or otherwise breaches the terms of this Agreement in any way.

1.3 You warrant that all information provided to us during the registration process is true and accurate.

1.4 You agree not to allow anyone else to use your UserID and not to disclose your UserPassword to anyone else.  This is as much for your own protection as ours and other users.  However, you accept that you are solely responsible and liable for the activity carried out under your UserID on the Service and so if you do enable anyone else to use your UserID and/or UserPassword not only do you do so at your own risk  but you will also be in breach of this Agreement.  We may terminate your registration immediately for any breach of this agreement and in such event you will not be permitted to re-register without the express permission of Eidos.

1.5 Acceptance of this Agreement and registration does not give you the right to access and play all games which are made available via the Service nor does it entitle you to use or have access to any other service or website operated by Eidos or any of its international affiliates.  It may not be possible to play Online Features of any other Eidos games using your UserID. Separate registration for the Service may be required in order to play the Online Features associated with other Eidos games, or access to the Online Features which may otherwise be subject to eligibility criteria which you may not meet and acceptance of terms, conditions and restrictions which may or may not be the same as this Agreement.  In particular, access to certain services or specific games may be subject to:

(a) different or additional terms and conditions which require acceptance as a condition to access and play;

(b) a subscription charge or other payment; or

(c) age or other restrictions applicable to the game content as stipulated by us.

1.6 We reserve the right to reset your registration account at any time without notice to you in which case you may have to re-register under a different UserID and/or UserPassword in order to be able to continue to use the Service to play the Online Features.  Eidos accepts no liability of any nature whatsoever for any loss or damage suffered or incurred by you as a result of us resetting your registration account (including, but not limited to, loss of data).

1.7 You agree that all communications which you may make with other users while using the Service and the Online Features via chat rooms, community forums, message boards, voice chat or otherwise are public and not private communications and that you have no expectation of privacy concerning your use of the Service.  Moreover, you agree that you acquire no right, title or interest in any character, data, property or other matter which you may acquire, create or develop while playing a game in Online mode (including, but not limited to, game statistics, player results, league tables and your UserID).

2. Changes to the Service and Modifications to this Agreement

2.1 We may:

(a) change the Service; and/or

(b) makes changes to this Agreement

at any time. In addition, we do not make any guarantee that you will be able to continue to play all or any of the Online Features on the Service for any length of time. We reserve the right to withdraw any Online Features related to any game or games at any time.

2.2 Where we make a change to this Agreement such change will become effective thirty (30) days after posting the revised Agreement on the Service or other notification of such change to you by email or other means as set out below.  A copy of the latest version of this Agreement applicable to each Eidos game in respect of which on-line features are made available via the Service can always be found at http://www.eidos.com/online.  We therefore recommend that you regularly review the latest version of this Agreement.  If you continue to use the Service thirty (30) days after the date that the revised Agreement is posted on the Service (or website address referred to above) then you will be deemed to have accepted all such changes.  If you do not wish to accept or be bound by such changes, your exclusive remedy is to cancel your registration and stop using the Service before the end of such thirty (30) day period.  Cancellation may be effected by email to Community@eidos.com.

3. Children

WE ASK PARENTS AND LEGAL GUARDIANS OF CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 TO PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE ONLINE ACTIVITIES OF THEIR CHILDREN AND TO CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT. IN PARTICULAR, PARENTS AND GUARDIANS SHOULD SPECIFICALLY MAKE CHILDREN UNDER THEIR CARE AWARE OF THE RULES OF PLAY IN PART B AND THE IMPORTANT REMINDERS CONTAINED IN PART C BELOW. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT OR GUARDIAN TO SUPERVISE THE USAGE BY MINORS OF THE SERVICE.

3.1 Neither the Service nor the Online Features of the Game are directed to children under the age of 13 and Eidos will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 13.  Further information concerning children and collection of information from children is contained in the Eidos Online Privacy Policy.

3.2 In addition, users under a particular age may be ineligible to play the Online Features associated with certain games which are subject to minimum age requirements stipulated by us.  The right to play any such game is subject to the user meeting such minimum age requirements as at the date of acceptance of this Agreement for the particular game.

3.3 No information should be submitted nor posted to or on the Service by anyone under the age of 13.  In such circumstances, where such children are nevertheless permitted to participate in any online activities, we may require written permission to be given by a parent or legal guardian in accordance with such procedures as may be stipulated by us from time to time on the Service as a condition to such children being able to participate in any online activities using the Service. 

3.4 All games published by Eidos carry a voluntary or mandatory age-rating identified on the packaging for the relevant game.  You should not allow players under the minimum age requirement specified in the applicable age rating for the game in your jurisdiction to play the game and by accessing the Online Features of a game you confirm that you and other players you allow to play such game have attained any such minimum age. Moreover, the content of the game may change due to interactive exchanges between players in the On-line mode.  Neither Eidos nor Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. accept any responsibility for content which is external to the game itself.

4. Technical Requirements

4.1 Your ability to access the Service and Online Features of Eidos games is dependent upon certain minimum technical requirements being met as prescribed by us from time to time for each particular game.  You are solely responsible for meeting the minimum technical requirements and paying for all connection fees to the Service.  Minimum technical requirements may vary from game to game and your use of the Service and access to Online Features associated with any game is subject to your technical and connection infrastructure meeting such minimum technical requirements.  We may modify the minimum technical requirements for use of the Service in relation to any one or more games at any time and without giving notice to you.

We may adopt technical measures designed to identify players who appear to be cheating which may lead to them being prevented from using the Service in future and their registrations for the Service either being suspended or terminated (at our discretion).

5.6 Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement or any separate agreement between Eidos and you, your use of the Service gives you no rights whatsoever to use, reproduce, transmit, copy, distribute, perform, license or otherwise deal with any information, computer software, data, images, content or services obtained or received by you as a result of your access to and/or use of the Service.

If you believe your copyrights are being infringed by any user of the Service, please fill out a Notice of Infringement form http://www.eidos.com/online and fax it to Eidos.

The information requested by the Notice of Infringement form substantively complies with the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. section 512(c)(3)(A), which provides:

To be effective under this subsection, a notification of claimed infringement must be a written communication provided to the designated agent of a service provider that includes substantially the following:

(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.

(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material.

(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.

(v) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Notification from a copyright owner or from a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner that fails to comply substantially with the provisions above shall not be considered as providing actual knowledge or an awareness of facts or circumstances from which infringing activity is apparent. 

Please provide a Notice of Infringement form each time you wish to report alleged acts of infringement and fax it to the number provided.  

B. THE RULES OF PLAY
These rules are mandatory and are for the benefit of all users of the Service.  Eidos is the sole and final judge of whether any conduct falls foul of these rules.

The Service may offer a facility enabling users to report abusive or other conduct which they think breaches the Rules of Play.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Scope and application of this Privacy Policy

Eidos Inc. ("Eidos" or "we") respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information collected about you.  To further this commitment, we have adopted this Online Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") to guide how we collect, store and use any information you provide us through your Sony PlayStation(R)2 Computer Entertainment System in connection with and as a result of your use of the Eidos Online Game Service ("Service") to play the on-line gaming features of the "Game" and any other Eidos computer game made available on the Service where you are able to use your unique UserID to play the Online Features associated with any such other game.

This Privacy Policy only applies to the collection and use of information through your Sony PlayStation(R)2 console via our Service in relation to your use of the Online Features.  It does not apply to information which may be collected by Eidos or any of its affiliates otherwise than via the Service including offline or through any websites operated by Eidos or its international affiliates.  You are therefore encouraged to read the privacy policy applicable to the relevant game, website or service before you submit any personal information to it.

As a condition of your registration for and use of the Service you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy (which agreement constitutes your consent to the use and processing of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy).  If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy you should not complete your registration for the Service nor otherwise use the Service in relation to the Game.

Eidos reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy without giving prior notice to you. You should therefore periodically check that this Privacy Policy is the latest version by going to http://www.eidos.com/online where you will find a printable copy of the latest version of this Privacy Policy.  At the top of this Privacy Policy there will be a date when this Privacy Policy was last updated.  Your continued use of the Service will constitute your acceptance of any changes.

What information does Eidos collect?

In order to access the Service you need to create a registration account.  You will be asked for the following contact and other personal information: postal/ZIP code, gender, country of residence, email address and date of birth.

It is not possible to register for the Service without completing the mandatory fields which are specified during the registration process.
  
In addition, you will need to create your own unique UserID and UserPassword.  Your UserID will be your nickname.  Your UserID and country of residence (as provided by you during the registration process) will be seen by other players using the Service in the following ways:

- when you log on to the Service;

- when you join an on-line game or participate in a lobby or community chat room;

- in league tables and other game statistics which may appear on the Service.

If you choose not to submit personal information when requested, you may not be able to participate in certain activities available through the Service and this may limit the services we can provide you.

As stated in the Terms of Service since your UserID and other communications made through your console are public and you shall have no expectation of privacy with respect thereto, we strongly urge you not to use your personal information when choosing a UserID or otherwise communicating with others on the Service.

The Service may allow you to chat with other users via voice communications or otherwise to attach graphics and other content. Again, all communications and attachments may be capable of  being viewed or heard by others using the Service.

We do not guarantee the security of, nor are we responsible for, any information posted on any in-game lobby room or other chat or community forum. Any such information could be collected by others.

We will also automatically collect such information as is necessary relating to your console to enable us to provide you with automatic software updates for your console and software patches for the Game.

We may collect and retain files of information concerning usage of the Service. We generate these entries anonymously.  They help us to determine (among other things) how many and how often users have accessed the Service, what games have been played, game scores and other in-game statistics.  We also use these entries for our own internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the services we provide to our customers.  

In addition, we may collect personal information from users when emails and other notices are sent to us.  

Billing information

Moreover, it may not be technically possible to retrieve, locate, update or otherwise delete records of communications you may have posted on any forum, or in-game.
