4. Donations & Purchases
Please note: Purchases and donations made under previous TAC continue to be governed by the corresponding clauses of the TAC, (or of the Commercial Terms, as applicable) which were in effect when those purchases and donations were made.
Mortalis Game is raising funds for the Game and other Mortalis Game Services. You may select one or more of the packages (“Packages”) offered on the Website and pay the indicated amount(s) or make a donation (the “Contribution”) in accordance with the following terms agreed between you and Mortalis Game.
Your Contribution is a deposit to be used for the development and production cost of the Game and the costs of operating and hosting the Game, the Website and the other Mortalis Game Services, as well as Mortalis Game’s corporate expenses associated with the foregoing (the “Game Cost”).
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these TAC, you may cancel your Contribution for any reason within 14 days of the date on which the Contribution was made (“Cancellation Period”).
To cancel your Contribution during the applicable Cancellation Period, you simply need to notify us in writing of your decision to cancel your order. You can cancel your order during the applicable Cancellation Period by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cancel your Contribution during the applicable Cancellation Period, we will without undue delay, and in any event within fourteen (14) days from the date on which we receive notice of your decision to cancel your order, fully refund to you the respective Contribution. In accordance with applicable financial control and banking rules, we reserve the right to refund you using the same means of payment as you used to make your order.
If you already have received your Virtual Goods and cancel your order within the applicable Cancellation Period, we will remove the relevant Virtual Goods you ordered from your Account once we have processed your cancellation notice and you will no longer be able to access or use those Virtual Goods.
Mortalis Game agrees to use its good faith business efforts to deliver to you the purchased items as soon as possible. You agree that any portion of your Contribution shall not be refundable until and unless Mortalis Game has ceased development and failed to deliver the relevant items to you. In consideration of the promises by Mortalis Game hereunder, you agree that you irrevocably waive any claim for a refund of your Contribution except as set forth in the preceding sentence.
For the avoidance of doubt, following the Cancelation Period, in consideration of Mortalis Game’s good faith efforts to develop, produce, and deliver the Game and the other Mortalis Game Services with the funds raised, you agree that the Contribution shall be non-refundable regardless of whether Mortalis Game is able to complete and deliver the purchased items, the Game and/or the other Mortalis Game Services. In the unlikely event that Mortalis Game is not able to deliver the purchased items, and/or the Game, Mortalis Game agrees to refund any portion of your Contribution that is not yet used, and to post an audited cost accounting on the Website to fully explain the use of the funds raised for the Game Cost.
You acknowledge and agree that the Game and the items delivered to you may differ in certain aspects from the description of the Game and the items on the Website at the time of your Contribution, due to the evolving design of the items and the Game during development.
For the avoidance of doubt, all payments for items delivered immediately or soon after purchase, such as downloadable content and books, recurring website subscriptions or alpha passes, are not covered by this Section 4, but by Section 6 below. Merchandize is defined and covered by Section 7 below.
For a Contribution you will be rewarded with Rootseeds. These are tokens that grant you right to some benefits. The exact benefits and terms of usage will be settled sometime in the future by Mortalis Game.
6. Paid Subscription
If you pay a recurring (e.g. monthly) subscription for a Mortalis Game Service, Mortalis Game will provide you with notice of any changes to the fees or billing methods at least thirty (30) days in advance by email. If you continue to use The Mortalis Game Services thirty (30) days or more after the date on which we notified you by email of the relevant changes then you will be deemed to have accepted these changes. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your subscription at any time, but we will not refund any fees for subscriptions periods that have lapsed prior to your cancellation, and we will not prorate fees for any subscription. If your use of Mortalis Game Services is subject to use or sales tax, then Mortalis Game may also charge you for any such taxes, in addition to the subscription or other fees.
If you purchase a recurring subscription, you agree that until you cancel it Mortalis Game shall automatically renew your subscription to the relevant Mortalis Game Service on the relevant renewal date and charge the valid credit card number or other payment method which you have provided. The amount charged upon each renewal shall be the then-current subscription fee for the relevant Mortalis Game Service, excluding any promotional and discount pricing.
You are always responsible for any Internet service provider, telephone, wireless and other connection fees that you may incur when using Mortalis Game Services, even when we offer a free trial subscription. Trial subscriptions are not transferable.
The following terms and conditions will apply to any physical merchandize (e.g. T-shirts, notepads, etc.) and event tickets (collectively, “Merchandize”) that you purchase from us via the Website.
We have the right at any time, prior to our acceptance of your order (as described below), to withdraw any discount and/or to revise the prices set out on our Website to take into account increases in the costs of manufacturing, handling or shipping the Merchandize available on our Website or any increase or imposition of any tax, duty or other levy and/or any variation in exchange rates. Any prices referred to on our Website are subject to change, do not constitute an offer and may be withdrawn or revised by us at any time prior to our express acceptance of your order (as described below). We reserve the right to notify you of any mistakes in any Merchandize descriptions or errors in pricing prior to dispatching the Merchandize you have ordered to you. In such event if you instruct us to proceed with the delivery of such Merchandize, you acknowledge that such Merchandize will be provided in accordance with such revised description or price.
When you place an order for Merchandize on our Website we will send you an order confirmation email. Our acceptance of your order does not take place until you will be charged for the purchase price of such Merchandize at which point we will have agreed to enter into a contract with you for the sale of such Merchandize.
Once you have received your order confirmation email you will not be able to make any changes to your order so please make sure that everything is correct before clicking the button for placing order and paying.
We will ship the Merchandise to the delivery address stated in your order without undue delay, and in any event, within 30 (thirty) days from your order. Title and risk in respect of the Merchandize you have ordered will pass from us to you once the Merchandize is delivered to the delivery address stated in your order.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that: (a) Merchandize is shipped to you from the nearest facility available to Mortalis Game, which may, however, be outside your country or economic region; and (b) you are solely responsible for any and all applicable import duties, customs fees and taxes that are payable on the Merchandize you have ordered.
If you wish to cancel your order you may do so up to fourteen (14 ) days from the date on which you receive the relevant Merchandize you have ordered (“Cooling-Off Period”). The easiest way to do so is by emailing us at email@example.com. If you cancel your order during the applicable Cooling-Off Period, we will without undue delay, and in any event within 14 days from the date on which we receive your returned Merchandize, fully refund to you the purchase price of the Merchandize you have ordered and, if applicable, any delivery costs paid by you for your Merchandize (provided that in no event will we reimburse you for any supplementary costs which you have incurred as a result of opting for a type of delivery other than the least expense type on offer). We will refund you using the same means of payment as you used to make your order unless you and we expressly agree otherwise.
If you have received your Merchandize and cancel your order within the applicable Cooling-Off Period, you must return your Merchandize to us without undue delay, and in any event within 14 days from the date on which you notified us that you wished to cancel your order. You shall be responsible for the costs of returning your Merchandize to us. You may also be liable for any diminished value of the Merchandize which has resulted from your handling of the Merchandize (other than that which has arisen because of any handling of the Merchandize that was necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functionality of the Merchandize).

You may make payments on The Mortalis Game Services by using the methods available for the particular Mortalis Game Service and agreeing to the terms and conditions applicable to the payment method you choose. Payment methods may vary by Mortalis Game Service and your country or economic region.
You must provide current, complete, and accurate payment information for any Contribution on your Survivor’s Camp. When you provide credit card or other payment information to Mortalis Game (respectively its payment providers), you represent to Mortalis Game that you are the authorized user of the credit card or other payment method. You must promptly update all information with the relevant payment provider to keep your payment information current, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date).

You must promptly notify Mortalis Game if your credit card is canceled (for example, for loss or theft). Changes to such information can be made by contacting customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on the payment method chosen you may incur additional processing fees, and may not be able to automatically renew subscriptions. Any separate charges or obligations that you incur in your dealings with the third party payment providers are your responsibility. Mortalis Game reserves the right to change its payment providers at any time.
As a Survivor’s Camp account holder (“Survivor”), you are responsible for all charges incurred on your Survivor’s Camp, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or Your Authorized Users. This means that, unless your Survivor’s Camp account or payment information is obtained unlawfully or fraudulently by someone other than Your Authorized Users, you will be responsible for all usage and purchases on your account.
You acknowledge that pursuant to applicable finance, banking, and currency control regulations (including FinCEN) any refunds, e.g. for reversals during the 14-day statutory Cancellation Period, may only be made to the same payment method (credit card, PayPal, bank account, or other), from which the payment was received. In no event can any such refund exceed the amount of actual payments received from you on your Survivor’s Camp account. No refunds can be made for the value of any Pledge Item(s) or Merchandize already delivered, the value of expired subscription periods or the value associated with any purchased items gifted or transferred by you to other Survivor’s Camp accounts or received on your account from other accounts. Any taxes paid, such as VAT, are not refundable beyond thirty (30) days after the purchase.
You hereby acknowledge and accept electronic invoicing. Electronic invoices will be delivered to you through the email address you indicate in your Survivor’s Camp. You acknowledge that such electronic invoicing is not unsolicited commercial email and that these invoices require no subscription to any mailing list for receipt by you.
We reserve the right to change our prices and fees at any time. If we elect to do so, we will notify you of the relevant change by email or by posting a notice on the relevant Mortalis Game Service.

All Virtual Goods remain the property of Mortalis Game at all times and are subject to its reasonable rules and regulations as amended from time to time.

22. Survivors Subject to the Jurisdiction of Germany
Instead of Section 17 “Limitations on Warranty and Liability” the following shall apply:
22.1. Mortalis Game is liable for damages, regardless on which legal basis (be it contract, tort or otherwise), only if a) such damages are cause by violation of essential obligations of these TAC (Kardinalpflichten) for Mortalis Game‘s negligence or intent (Verschulden) which endangers the purpose of the Agreement; or b) such damages are caused by Mortalis Game’s gross negligence or intent.
22.2. In case that Mortalis Game is liable for the violation of an essential obligation of these TAC (Kardinalpflicht) without acting with gross negligence or intent then the liability is limited to amount of payments received from the respective User.
22.3. If Mortalis Game is liable for damages pursuant to Section 22.1 above for gross negligence or intent of Mortalis Game staff other than the managing directors then the liability is also limited to the amount set forth in Section 22.2.
22.4. Mortalis Game is not liable for indirect or consequential damages (Mangelfolgeschäden), loss of profits or frustrated costs if such damages are not a result of gross negligence or intent of Mortalis Game‘s managing directors.
22.5. The exclusion or limitation of liability pursuant to this section also applies with respect to claims against Mortalis Game’s staff or contractors.
22.6. The liability of Mortalis Game with respect to death, bodily injury or health, a guarantee by Mortalis Game (if any) or pursuant to the Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz) shall remain unaffected.
22.7. If the User is also liable for certain damages then Mortalis Game shall bear an amount of such damages in accordance to its contributory negligence (Mitverschulden). With respect to the User’s responsibility for reduction of damages (Schadensminderungsobligenheit) the User is responsible for regular back-ups of its data and in case of an assumed bug shall take all further reasonable measures. In case of loss of data Mortalis Game is thus liable only to the extent that such loss of data would have occurred in case of a due data back-up as well.
