Licensing & Copyright

PREFACE

The sole objective of this document is to provide the terms and conditions of the usage of our Product and its Associated Services (hereafter named as solely the Product), detail policies concerning the obtention and the regulation of access to the Product, and specify our privacy policy. This document was specifically written to create a fair balance of responsibility, freedom of use and peace of mind for both Synapse Softworks LLC, its staff, and the Client.

If you have purchased the Product before March 11, 2020, it is in your best interest to reread this document in its entirety. Major changes were implemented and many clauses were either added or removed. To guarantee your compliance with our updated terms and conditions, we highly suggest you go over this document again.

DEFINITIONS

1. LICENSING AND PRODUCT INFORMATION

  1. The Product in and of itself is an extensible Lua 5.1 programming engine crafted to be interoperable with third party software that similarly runs Lua or Lua-inspired scripting languages. More specifically, the Product is software that aims to make use of third party application programming interfaces (APIs) to achieve full interoperability between the Product’s Lua scripting language and third party applications’ Lua scripting languages (or subsets thereof). In accordance with the philosophy of the GNU Project, we believe that software should be free, free as in Freedom and not price, allowing its users to make use of software as they see fit, and this Product aims to increase the relative liberty and accessibility of Lua scripting engines commonly found in software as a way to practice the philosophy of the GNU Project. Interoperability and compatibility is however not guaranteed, as our Product is not necessarily compatible with all third party software. This interoperability, and therefore the nature of this software, is legally protected in the United States by Section 103(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (17 USC § 1201 (f)).
  2. This license serves as an unlimited contract between you, the Client, and Synapse Softworks LLC. By purchasing a copy of the Product, you implicitly agree to all the conditions, clauses and other information offered by this document,  vow to respect it, and uphold the personal responsibility of regularly consulting this document for any changes that may impact your usage of the Product and your behavior towards it. You also affirm that you are aged 13 years or older, as this product is not recommended to individuals under the age of 13.
  3. Regulation of licensing, such as the granting or dismissing of licenses, is the responsibility of both Synapse Softworks LLC and its community managers (the staff). Compliance with either group’s orders is highly recommended if you happen to breach the terms of conditions of this contract, as it may save your license. These two groups will hereafter be named the Licensing managers.
  4. Breaching the terms and conditions of this license will inevitably result in the immediate termination of the contract and therefore the ceasing of your personal usage of the Product, unless the Licensing managers grants you leniency.
  5. Licensing managers have the right to revoke your contract at will and without warning. Licensing managers are expected to issue dismissals with justification found in the terms and conditions, unless in extraordinary circumstances. However, in case you judge your contract dismissal to be unfair, you may appeal your dismissal to Licensing managers and seek a possible reversal.
  1. Unless specifically forbidden by Licensing managers, it is in your right to repurchase a license if it has been previously terminated in most cases. However, it is a Licensing manager’s right to decide to revoke a newly purchased license for offenses committed under a previous license if they have been severe enough or are repeated under the new license.
  1. Licenses are not individually transferable, and any attempt to force an illegal transfer whether of its commerciality is forbidden.
  1. Licenses may be shared between individuals of the same household and/or between individual devices connected on the same network. For example, family members living in the same domicile may share a copy of the Product insofar they are not sharing it to anyone not connected to their home network.
  2. The household-share rule does not apply to non-residential networks. For example, you cannot share a single copy of the product to individuals connected to a business/commercial network.
  3. If the Licensing managers doubt the legitimacy of your sharing, they have the right to investigate your sharing of the Product and revoke your license if it is deemed unauthorized under the Terms of Service.
  1. Licenses are not resellable, and any attempt to illegitimately resell a license will be considered an illegal transfer as defined by section 1.6.
  1. The only exceptions are Licenses transferred through authorized giveaways by Synapse Softworks LLC and its affiliates; they are allowed to be sold. Proof that the key originates from an authorized giveaway must be provided if administrators question the sale.
  1. Licenses are to be considered irrevocably paid unless Synapse Softworks LLC decides that your condition warrants a partial refund. There are no conditions for guaranteed refunds.
  1. No refunds or other types of reimbursements will be provided if the Client fails to transmit the requisite amount of funds demanded by our third-party payment processors. Until the processors deem the purchase complete, any transmitted funds are fully within their jurisdiction and not directly within our control; therefore it is the Client’s responsibility to provide the full balance necessary to complete the purchase as requested by the payment processor.
  1. All claims and disputes arising under or relating to this License are to be settled by binding arbitration in a location mutually agreeable to the parties. The arbitration shall be conducted on a confidential basis pursuant to the arbitration rules and guidelines of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. Any decision or award as a result of any such arbitration proceeding shall be in writing and shall provide an explanation for all conclusions of law and fact and shall include the assessment of costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees. Any such arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitrator experienced in computer science and software distribution and shall include a written record of the arbitration hearing. The parties reserve the right to object to any individual who shall be employed by or affiliated with a competing organization or entity. An award of arbitration may be confirmed in a court of competent jurisdiction. Please bear in mind that as expressed by Amendment VII of the United States Constitution, if you were to bypass our arbitration clause as an American citizen, you do not have legal grounds to file a lawsuit for a civil trial as the total value of our products never exceed the amount of $20 American Dollars (USD).
  2. THE  PRODUCT  PROVIDER  AND  OUR  AFFILIATES  MAKE  NO  WARRANTIES,  EXPRESS  OR  IMPLIED,  GUARANTEES OR CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO YOUR USE OF THE PRODUCT. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT USE OF THE Product IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT WE PROVIDE THE PRODUCT ON AN "AS IS" BASIS "WITH ALL FAULTS" AND "AS AVAILABLE."

5. MISCELLANEOUS

  1. This section, and all previous sections whose terms apply after these Terms end will survive any termination or  cancellation  of  these  Terms.  To  the  extent  permitted  by  applicable  law,  we  may  assign  these  Terms, subcontract our obligations under these Terms, or sublicense our rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time without notice to you. You may not assign these Terms or transfer any rights to use the Product. This is the entire agreement between you and Synapse Softworks LLC for your use of the Product. It supersedes any prior agreements between you and Synapse Softworks LLC regarding your use of the Product. In entering these Terms, you have not relied on any statement, representation, warranty, understanding, undertaking, promise or assurance other than as expressly set out in these Terms. All parts of these Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by relevant law. If a court or arbitrator holds that we can't enforce a part of these Terms as  written, we  may  replace  those  terms  with  similar  terms to  the  extent  enforceable  under  the  relevant law, but the rest of these Terms won't change. These Terms are solely for your and our benefit. These Terms are not for the benefit of any other person, except for Synapse Softworks LLC’s successors and assigns. Section headings are for reference only and have no legal effect.
  2. Claims must be filed within a month. Any claim related to these Terms or the Services must be filed in arbitration within one month of the date you could first file the claim, unless your local  law requires a  longer time to file claims. If not filed within that time, then it's permanently barred.
  3. Except as expressly provided under these Terms, Synapse Softworks LLC does not grant you a license or any other rights of any type under any patents, know-how, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks or other intellectual  property  owned  or  controlled  by  the  Product  Provider  or  any  related  entity,  including  but not limited to any name, trade dress, logo or equivalents. If you give to Synapse Softworks LLC any idea, proposal, suggestion  or  feedback,  including  without  limitation  ideas  for  new  products,  technologies, promotions, product names, product feedback and product improvements ("Feedback"), you give to Synapse Softworks LLC, without charge, royalties or other obligation to you, the right to make, have made, create derivative works, use, share and commercialize your Feedback in any way and for any purpose. You will not give Feedback that is subject to a license that requires Synapse Softworks LLC to license its software, technologies or documentation to any third party because Synapse Softworks LLC includes your Feedback in them.
  4. Any appeal attempting to reverse punishment(s) that have resulted in license revocation must be filed within one month of the date of such punishment being issued at https://synapsesupport.io. Any attempts to file an appeal seeking to reverse the punishment after one month has passed since the punishment(s) issue date will be permanently voided and denied (regardless of its validity), unless otherwise stated by Licensing managers.
  1. Any appeal attempting to reverse punishment(s) received for infringing the rules and guidelines detailed under Article 6 and Article 7 (but has NOT resulted in license revocation) must be filed within six months of the date of such punishment being issued at https://synapsesupport.io.

6. COMMUNICATIONS — META

  1. All the following rules and guidelines in Article 6 and Article 7 (“Communications”) apply to our official communication channels, such as our Discord server, e-mail system and any other platforms used for community discussions.
  2. Infringing the rules and guidelines detailed within the two aforementioned sections will result in restrictions of your permissions to participate in or otherwise access official communication channels. Infringements deemed severe enough may result in further penalties, such as preventing your access to these channels altogether or revoking your license. The punishment necessary is up to the discretion of the Licensing managers.
  3. You may appeal any punishment received for infringing the rules and guidelines detailed under Article 6 and Article 7 (“Communications”), but relief from moderation isn’t guaranteed no matter the circumstance or severity of the infringement. Such appeal must be in accordance with §5.4 and/or §5.4a in order to be considered valid.
  4. Any references to the “server” or the “Discord” in Article 7 are to be interpreted as referring to official communication channels in general. Any reference to the phrases “blacklist” or “license revocation” in Article 7 are to be interpreted as referring to the immediate termination of the contract and therefore the ceasing of your personal usage of the Product.
  5. Any Communications section or individual rule that contains a marked superscript is considered to have a preordained punishment for infringing such section rule(s) or individual rule(s). Sub-section rules that have extra superscripts in addition to the main section superscript(s) are considered to have said superscripts as possible additional punishment. However, in accordance with Article §6.2, Licensing managers reserve the right to bestow any additional punishment at their discretion. The superscript legend is as follows (in order of lowest to highest severity): 1-server mute, 2-server kick, 3-voice channels ban, 4-developer channels ban, 5-server ban, and 6-Product license revocation.
  6. Stricken-through rules are to be considered not in effect. Their deletion is scheduled at a later point for internal reasons.

7. COMMUNICATIONS

  1. Freedom to voice your opinions and speak your mind is considered the golden rule of the Synapse X community and is what sets it apart from many other communities. This means that you will not be punished for having an opinion that is ‘unpopular’, ‘controversial’ or ‘politically incorrect’. However, like any freedom, it comes with its own limits. Your freedom of speech ends when it could potentially harm someone else physically, their computer, or if it impedes another person’s right to speak as well. Use common sense when applying this rule.
  2. Do not spam, flood or otherwise prevent normal communications from occurring. This includes unnecessarily tagging individuals, posting ASCII art that does not contribute to ongoing conversations, or posting fake Nitro codes. Additionally, in order to promote fluidity in communications, avoid speaking piecemeal.1

  1. Attempting or threatening to obtain another Client’s personal information will result in a server ban.5

  1. Releasing, harming, or threatening to do either to another Client’s personal information will result in your Product license being irrevocably revoked.6
  1. Posting any executable file, IP address, phone number (depends on intention & how ‘public’ the number is [which will be handled on a case-by-case basis]), address, etc. will get you banned, or muted for 1 day if they aren't real. This does not count if they're obviously fake, like 127.0.0.1 or 8.8.8.8.1, 5

  2. Posting discord crashers / fake crash scripts will get you banned.5
  3. Nitro Boosters with the capacity to speak in general should not post unfunny memes. If this rule is repeatedly infringed you will be muted.1, 2
  4. Don't be a mini-mod that reports every minor rule break to the whole staff team. Reporting major rule breaking like gore or advertising does not fall under this rule, but annoying Mods for stuff like minor spam that isn't even mutable will get you punished.1
  5. Barely breaking the rules multiple times just to annoy staff will get you punished regardless.1, 2
  6. Avoid inputting unusual and attention-grabbing characters in your custom status.2
