Repeated exceeding of the hard or soft usage limits may lead to termination of your account.

2.5. You may use the Brinkbit Services only to develop and run your Game(s) that use the Brinkbit Services.

4. Fees for Use of the Brinkbit Services

4.1. Subject to the Terms, the Brinkbit Services are provided to you without charge up to certain limits. Usage over these limits requires your purchase of additional resources or services.

Late payments shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. You are responsible for paying all taxes and government charges, and all reasonable expenses and attorney fees Brinkbit incurs collecting late amounts. To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all claims relating to charges unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect your credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Brinkbit’s measurements of your use of the Brinkbit Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing.

Brinkbit may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. Brinkbit shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties.

4.3. Brinkbit may change its fees and payment policies for the Brinkbit Services at any time, but in the event of a fee increase, Brinkbit will honor the previous pricing policy for an existing customer for at least sixty (60) days after notifying the customer of the fee increase. Changes to the fees or payment policies will be posted on the Website (or otherwise as required by a written agreement between you and Brinkbit). Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of the Terms for any reason.

4.4. Brinkbit reserves the right to discontinue the provision of the Brinkbit Services to you for non-payment or late payment of amounts due to Brinkbit.

7. License from Brinkbit and Restrictions

7.1. To facilitate your use of the Brinkbit Services, Brinkbit may make available to you certain documentation, application programming interfaces (APIs), Software Development Kits (SDKs), and sample source code (the “Licensed Materials”). Subject to your compliance with the Terms (including, without limitation, the payment obligations described in Section 4) and your use of the Brinkbit Services in connection with your Games, Brinkbit grants you a revocable, personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the Licensed Materials made available to you by Brinkbit as part of the Brinkbit Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Brinkbit Services as provided by Brinkbit, in the manner permitted by the Terms. Any other use of the Licensed Materials is prohibited.

7.2. Except as expressly permitted hereunder, you agree not to, nor permit nor authorize any third party to: (i) sublicense, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, or distribute any of the Licensed Materials to third parties; (ii) host the Licensed Materials for the benefit of third parties; (iii) disclose or permit any third party to access the Licensed Materials, except as expressly permitted herein; (iv) hack or modify any of the Licensed Materials, or try to avoid or change any license registration process we may implement; (v) modify or create derivative works of the Licensed Materials, or merge the Licensed Materials with any other software; (vi) disassemble, decompile, bypass any code obfuscation, or otherwise reverse engineer the Licensed Materials or attempt to derive any of its source code, in whole or in part, except to the extent such activities are expressly permitted by these Terms, by law, or by applicable license notwithstanding this prohibition; (vii) modify, obscure, or delete any proprietary rights notices included in or on the Licensed Materials or the documentation related thereto; (viii) otherwise use or copy the Licensed Materials in any manner not expressly permitted by these Terms; or (ix) use any of the Licensed Materials beyond the term you have subscribed for the Licensed Materials under your Service Agreement.

7.3. Open source software licenses for components of the Brinkbit Services released under an open source license constitute separate written agreements. To the limited extent that the open source software licenses expressly supersede these Terms, the open source licenses govern your agreement with Brinkbit for the use of the components of the Brinkbit Services released under an open source license.


8. Enterprise Game Cloud License; Restrictions on Use of Platform Software

8.1 To the extent you subscribed for an Enterprise Game Cloud License under your Service Agreement, you have paid the applicable Fees for an Enterprise Game Cloud License as part of the Brinkbit Services delivered to you hereunder, and subject to your strict compliance with these Terms (including, among other things, paying the Fees you owe us), Brinkbit hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, royalty-free, limited-term license to install, execute, use, and make available a single production deployment of the Brinkbit Enterprise Game Cloud (“Platform Software”) during the term and for the Fees for the maximum number of users as agreed in writing by you and Brinkbit in your Service Agreement. In such event, you may make copies of the Platform Software for archival purposes and/or to develop future versions of your Game(s) and your agents and contractors may use the Platform Software on your behalf, provided you agree to be fully responsible for any breach by them of your obligations hereunder. You may also reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Platform Software, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for the Platform Software, but only to the extent required to debug changes to any libraries licensed under open source licenses that may be included with and/or linked to by the same.

8.2 As between you and Brinkbit, Brinkbit owns all right, title and interest in and to the Platform Software and any intellectual property rights associated therewith. Brinkbit reserves all rights in and to the Platform Software that are not expressly granted to you under these Terms.

8.3 Only one End User may use an End User License at a time. The maximum number of End User Licenses for your use of the Platform Software shall be as stated on your Service Agreement (“End User Licenses”). In addition to setting the number of End User Licenses, the Service Agreement may also set the maximum number of your End Users that may have simultaneous access to the Platform Software. Multiple End Users may not use the same End User License, and only one human being can be associated with a particular End User account. If you want to swap out, delete, or suspend an End User, you can do that, and then assign a new End User to the open End User License. If you find that you need more End User Licenses, please submit a new request through our website or via our sales team, and pay for the additional End User Licenses. If and when you add additional End Users to your subscription, you will pay additional Fees for those End User licenses at the then-current price, prorated for the balance of the applicable term for your Service Agreement. When the time comes to renew your End User Licenses, Brinkbit will invoice you for all of your licensed End Users at once, at the then-current price. Brinkbit reserves the right to change prices at any time, but the new prices will not affect you until it is time to renew the End User Licenses. You agree that any orders that you make (or that you authorize Brinkbit to make on your behalf) for additional End Users during the term of your Service Agreement (including any extensions as agreed in writing by you and Brinkbit) will be governed by these Terms.
