    Registration, Password, Credit Card

    When you register for a CraneMania account, you will choose a user ID and password. It is your responsibility to keep your user ID and password confidential. If you think a third party may have obtained your password, you should immediately change your password. We will have no responsibility for damage caused to you by a third party using your user ID and password regardless of whether it was provided intentionally by you or through your negligence, and regardless of whether we knew or should have known of such use. If there are changes to information that you registered with us when applying to use the Service, you should update your profile to reflect the changes.

    You may also be required to provide valid credit card information to register for a CraneMania account or to continue using the Service. Charges that you incur through the Service will be billed to that credit card. It is your responsibility to keep your credit card information updated.

    In order to register a credit card or make payments for the Service, you may be required to agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy of the third-party payment processor used by the Service. Your submission of payments will be governed by the payment processor’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. We have no responsibility or liability for any matter relating to the third-party payment processor.

    You may only have one account for the Service. If you create or control more than one account, all of your accounts may be cancelled without notice, and any prizes being processed for any account may be cancelled.

    Account Termination

    CraneMania will terminate a User’s account if a User is found to be a repeat infringer of copyright.

    CraneMania reserves the right to terminate User accounts at any time for any other reason in our sole discretion.

    If your account with the Service is terminated, you may, as the result of termination, lose all information and data associated with the account, including CraneMania Credits, any other virtual currency and virtual goods. You will not be entitled to any refund, reimbursement or other liability as a result of any termination permitted under these Terms of Service for any reason, whether by you or CraneMania. CraneMania reserves the right to refuse to keep accounts for or provide access to the Service to anyone.

    Minor Users

    CraneMania relies upon parents and guardians to determine if the Service is appropriate for the viewing, access or purchases by persons under the age of 18.

    We do not intend the Service to be viewed or used by children under the age of 13. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are age 13 or older.

    You agree to monitor use of your account by persons between the ages of 13 and 18, and you will deny access to children under the age of 13. You agree to accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of your account by persons under the age of 18, including responsibility for any use of your credit card or other payment instrument.

    Promo Credits Terms of Service

    All Credits purchased directly with currency (e.g. with dollars through credit cards) are Paid Credits. All other Credits, including any given at the discretion of Cranemania for free, are Promo Credits.

    Promo Credits have no cash value; in jurisdictions where cash value is required, each 100 Free Credit is worth 1/100th of a cent (10,000 credits equals a dollar).

    If you have a mixture of Promo Credits and Paid Credits, you always use up your Paid Credits first. For example, if you have 500 Promo Credits and 500 Paid credits, and you use 100 Credits for a play, you now have 500 Promo Credits and 100 Paid Credits. Within Paid Credits, you use up your earliest Paid Credits first.

    Promo Credits are honored at our sole discretion and may be rescinded or expired at any time by us. We may not replenish Promo Credits even if you lose them due to our error, including accounting error, physical machine error, etc.

    Promo Credits on Account Creation

    From time to time, we may advertise to new users a certain number of credits that they will receive for free for creating a new account, termed "Promo Credit on Account Creation". These credits are all Promo Credits. No remedy is available if such Promo Credits are not given, including due to technical issues on our end, or your inability to receive and click on the validation email.

    Only one claim for Promo Credits on Account Creation may be made by one Unit, where a Unit is defined as household, email address, human person, computer, OR IP address. By way of example, two friends could be considered the same Unit if they used the same computer to sign up, even if the two are from separate households, email addresses, and IPs.

    If one Unit ever receives more than one set of Promo Credits on Account Creation, then all Promo Credits on Account Creation that Unit has received is invalidated and all prizes won on such Promo Credits will not be delivered, or if already delivered, reclaimable by Cranemania.

    In furtherance of this goal, Cranemania would like to ensure fair use of the Promo Credit amongst all its players. Cranemania may at its sole discretion put a "Research Hold" on prizes won with Promo Credits for a period of 10 business days. If it is discovered that the prize was won by violating rules, including the one set of Promo Credits on Account Creation per Unit rule, we may extend the Research hold for 60 further business days, after which the prizes and accounts will be invalidated and closed.

    Refunds of Credits

    You may request a refund of credits within 30 days of purchase of each Credit Pack.

    Let Credits Played be the number of credits you have played on that Credit Pack. If a Credit Pack has no associated Credits Played, it is fully refundable. If a Credit Pack has some credits played, then the value of refund is reduced by the Credits Played divided by 100 in US dollars. For example, suppose you buy 1100 Credits for $10; if you play 600 of the 1100 credits, then 600/100 = $6 is deducted from your refund and therefore $10-$6 = $4 is refundable.

    Compliance with Laws

    Various laws and regulations apply to sweepstakes and contests with prizes and entry fees, such as the Service (“Gaming Laws”). Gaming Laws may exist at the federal or national, state or provincial and local levels. The Service may be considered to violate the Gaming Laws of some jurisdictions, including certain US states. WE DO NOT INTEND TO OFFER THE SERVICE IN PROHIBITED JURISDICTIONS. IF YOU ARE LOCATED IN A PROHIBITED JURISDICTION, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SERVICE, EVEN IF IT IS ACCESSIBLE ON YOUR DEVICE. YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF USING THE SERVICE IN A PROHIBITED JURISDICTION.

    It is your responsibility to determine whether the state, country, territory or other jurisdiction in which you are located is a Prohibited Jurisdiction. We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to monitor the location from which you access Services, and we may block access from any location that we believe is a Prohibited Jurisdiction.

    WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE LAWFULNESS OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, NOR SHALL ANY PERSON AFFILIATED, OR CLAIMING AFFILIATION, WITH US HAVE AUTHORITY TO MAKE ANY SUCH REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY. THE SERVICE IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Unless you and CraneMania otherwise agree in writing, the time for informal negotiation will be sixty (60) days from the date on which you or CraneMania provides written notice of the Dispute. You and CraneMania agree that neither will commence arbitration before the end of the time for informal negotiation. If informal negotiation is not effective, arbitration shall be conducted as follows:

    • The arbitration will be held under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) (provided that if you are a business or the amount in dispute is more than US$75,000, the Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply) and conducted in Boston, Massachusetts by the AAA before a single arbitrator. However, if the amount in dispute is US$25,000 or less, any arbitration hearing will be held by telephone unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead.
    • Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms of Service.
    • YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE (OR PARTICIPATE IN AS A PARTY OR CLASS MEMBER) ALL DISPUTES IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. INSTEAD, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, WHOSE AWARD (DECISION) WILL BE BINDING AND FINAL. ANY COURT WITH JURISDICTION OVER THE PARTIES MAY ENFORCE THE ARBITRATOR'S AWARD.

    Neither you nor CraneMania will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. If the prohibition against class actions above is found to be unenforceable, then all of the preceding language in this Negotiation and Arbitration section will be null and void. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with CraneMania.
