BYOND Terms of Service

Thank you for your interest in BYOND! We need your support to keep the system running, and truly appreciate your willingness to become an important part of BYOND. By using the BYOND software and/or website ("Service"), you agree to these terms.

To make sure everyone on the system has the best experience, BYOND accounts are provided subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"). Violation of the TOS, as determined by the BYOND Staff, may result in a reduction of services provided to you, or a termination of your BYOND account.

User content uploaded to or displayed on the website can be filtered or removed at the discretion of the BYOND staff. Items that warrant such action include, but are not limited to:
  • pornographic, racist, or otherwise vulgar content;

  • content that is intended to incite or attack a particular user or group;

  • content that causes a significant use of bandwidth for purposes that don't benefit the BYOND community in some manner acceptable to the BYOND Staff;

  • content that breaks any laws or contracts.
Content violations as well as inappropriate conduct in other areas of the BYOND system, such as creating pager spam or harassing other users, may warrant termination of the BYOND account. BYOND Staff reserves the sole right to determine what conduct is inappropriate.

Registration with BYOND requires an email address to confirm the account. This address will never be shared, either within the BYOND community or with outside parties. We may contact you at this address to provide alerts to game or community activity; however, you may opt-out of this behavior through the "Manage Account" page.

Users who upgrade their account through the BYOND Membership program are held to the same standards above.

Either you or the BYOND Staff has the right to terminate your BYOND Membership at any time.

If your Membership is terminated by yourself or the BYOND Staff, there is no obligation for a refund of any amount you have paid for the Membership. In the event of termination, the BYOND Staff will determine whether you receive a partial, full, or no refund on your Membership.

The BYOND Staff reserves the right to modify or discontinue any part of the Service at any time. You agree that BYOND will not be held liable for any modification or discontinuance of the Service.

You also agree that BYOND will not be held liable for any damages of any kind resulting from your use of the Service.

The Service is provided on an "as is" basis. BYOND expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied.

The BYOND Staff takes your participation seriously, and wishes to provide you as much leeway as reasonable to allow you to use your BYOND account as you will, within the bounds of being a good citizen in this exciting community.
