Registration Terms

Terms of Service

These terms and conditions are the contract between you and CS40. Please read them carefully before signing up or using our services. By using our services provided on either csforty.com, our Discord server, or our hosted game servers (our “services”), you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).

TL;DR
We do our best to make this community and our services the best possible social gaming experience out there. We do not advertise or work for profit, and we won’t bother you unless it is really necessary. We do this out of the bottom of our hearts and every effort we bring to the table is unpaid, non-profit and as volunteers who simply enjoy and take responsibility for the gaming community we have created. Nowhere in this Terms of Service notice do you sell your soul to us. We expect you to behave as civilised members of a public community group, and we will treat you with respect as long as you act within our Terms of Service and #ourdiscordguidelines.

#Ourdiscordguidelines (available on our Discord server) is the main go-to for behavioural guidelines and rules of etiquette. This Terms of Service acts as basic framework.

Use of your CS40 Account

You must use a valid email address for your CS40 account. You must not use our services for any illegal or abusive purposes. Only one free account per person or legal entity is allowed. You are solely responsible for the security of your account and keeping your password safe. We encrypt your password – but you decide what to do with it.

Your Content

Our services may contain information, text, links, graphics, photos, videos, or other materials (“content”), including content created or submitted to our services by you or through your account (“your content”). We take no responsibility for and we do not expressly or implicitly endorse, support, or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any of your content.

By submitting your content to our services, you represent and warrant that you have all rights, power and authority necessary to grant the rights to your content contained within this Terms of Service. Because you alone are responsible for your content, you may expose yourself to liability if you post or share content without all necessary rights, or if said content is illegal in any manner, shape or form. CS40 retains the right to share your content, if deemed appropriate, as representative content of CS40, on our website, our Discord server channels, YouTube accounts or the like. We will always credit your account ID with origin of said content.

Any ideas, suggestions, and feedback about CS40 or our services that you provide to us are entirely voluntary, and you agree that CS40 may use such ideas, suggestions, and feedback without obligation to you.

Although we have no obligation to screen, edit or monitor your content, we may, in our sole discretion and in adherence with #ourdiscordguidelines, delete or remove your content at any time and for any reason, including for violating this Terms of Service, violating #ourdiscordguidelines, or if you otherwise create or are likely to create liability for us.
