Terms of Service
Accepting these Terms
Please read these Terms of Service carefully before utilising the Genesis service or any other
domains, products, services, and/or content provided by
Genesis ‘Services’. By using or accessing the services, you agree to become bound by all the terms
and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree
to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, you should not and are not permitted to use the
Genesis Virtual Store Service
Genesis provides operators of 3rd party hosted servers with virtual stores to accept donations and
payments for virtual goods and services. Genesis then
facilitates the transfer of these virtual goods to the account holder's gaming alias/account, while
facilitating the transfer of monies from the buyer to
the seller of the item.
An Genesis Buyer is defined as a person who is seeking to obtain a virtual item or service for the
use on a gaming server to be utilised exclusively on
that gaming server. It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that all payments being made through the
Genesis system are done legitimately, with their
own funds, on their own credit card. If you do not agree with these terms of service, you should not use
the system, and if a chargeback is detected, you
will be added to Genesis’s global payment blacklist. As an Genesis Buyer, you will be charged
a percentage fee for the utilisation of the Genesis provided virtual store.
Purchases of any paid services are final and non-refundable. We ask that you keep good records of your
receipts at all times, and that you double check
before making any purchases. Your money is your responsibility. Termination of your Account or your
rights under this Agreement may result in forfeiture of
existing paid services. Any disputes regarding the loss or forfeiture of a virtual item are between the
buyer and seller defined above.
Support & Contacting Genesis
If you have any issues integrating the Genesis system with your server system, support can be
provided by emailing [email protected] or
alternatively, using the forums.
When contacting support or using the forums, there are a few things you can do to make sure that your
support request is answered as quickly as possible:
Make sure that the title for your ticket is both specific and short. You want us to be able to
identify your issue immediately.
The actual ticket should be easy to read, but contain as many details as possible that are
relevant. Screenshots, video recordings, or detailed
instructions on how to reproduce bugs go a long way to making sure we understand exactly what
the problem is.
Ensure your support post is written in English as to obtain a response.
Your virtual content hosted on the Genesis Store
Note: In this section the term “Data” will appear frequently. “Data” means the information gathered from
you when you register for your account (Including
your IP address), profile data and any Content added by you.
When you upload anything to your Genesis Virtual store, you retain the virtual rights to your
digital items, as long as these items do not violate any
other terms in this agreement.
Keeping the above in mind, you give us permission to use, access, store, cache, publicly perform and
publicly display your Content and Data. This
permission is non-exclusive, worldwide, and royalty free. This permission is given to us so that we can
do the following with it:
A) Make your Content and Data available on the Genesis network in different types of media. In
other words, so that we can let you display your profile
avatar, make posts on your forums, and write news & blog articles in addition to any other way your
Content and Data can be made available;
B) Use your Content and Data to analyze the way that you interact with our system, so that we can market
ourselves to you and users like you, and better
ourselves as a business.
You are also aware that if we remove any of your Content in response to a DMCA takedown notice or
because it violates our Terms of Service, we can use or
recreate it in any way we need to. The most common reasons for this would be if a court or lawful body
subpoenas us, or if we are required to by law
enforcement agencies and governments. We may also do this to protect our own rights or the rights of
individual users or our general user base.
You have certain responsibilities to your Content and Data. You are responsible for making sure that you
actually own all the rights to your Content and
Data, including the right to give others permission or license to use it. You are also aware that we
can’t guarantee that your Content or Data is private
or confidential once it is on our network.
You understand that, even if you delete your account with us, any of your Content or Data might remain
on our network in some form.
You also agree that we can talk about you or share you, your Content, or your Data in material like case
studies, promotions, presentations, and press
We try our best to ensure that all Content and Data on our network is safe to view for the general
public. You understand that we may filter or refuse to
accept any Content or Data you post, display, or transmit on or through our network. With this in mind,
we cannot be expected to filter or refuse to accept
any Content or Data in an obligatory manner. If we choose to do this, we can do so with or without
notice and without liability of any kind.
