A Brief Note On Freedom of Speech
Freedom of Speech is not absolute. The only true place you have full Freedom of Speech is in a public place, when it does not conflict with the values or rights of others, and when you are the only speaker. Within an open forum, the rights of others must be observed. Every place has its own rules. It would be rude to walk into a library and begin shouting at the top of your lungs. Freedom of Speech (or Freedom of Expression) must not infringe on the rights of others.
All HitGrab Inc. discussion boards are privately owned, and these terms of service must be agreed to before users can post or use the application. No one enjoys the concept of censorship, but realistically, we need censorship in order to protect ourselves and, more importantly, our players. These terms are here for the benefit of the players.
Payments and Ownership of in-game virtual items
All virtual game items remain the intellectual property of HitGrab Inc. and may only be sold or traded for other virtual items within the application via forms accessible within the application. Under no circumstance may in-game items be traded for non-virtual (tangible) goods or services.
If you make a payment to HitGrab, you agree to our HitGrab’s Payment Terms.
