Welcome to Elite Avengers!
Remember to use your common sense (clickable) at any time as each rule can be expanded with many different options! Here is an example of when to use your common sense on duping (clickable); as you're not allowed to interact with each other on the same IP (for example by sending stuff) you can also not kill someone for the other person. So when person A and B are both at the same IP and person A has started a war with another crew it's not allowed for person B to kill ANYONE inside this crew or else he/she'd be helping person A, logic. All rules below are not limitted to the examples as they are JUST EXAMPLES which means it's a small amount of possible things that could/may happen.

1. ACCEPTING OF TERMS OF SERVICE
Elite Avengers provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"). These Terms of Service are subject to change at anytime. It is the responsibility of the player to be aware of and in compliance with the Terms of Service at all times. Major changes to the Terms of Service will be announced on the main page, which is presented at logon.

2. BETA VERSION
Elite Avengers is still in a Beta version. That means that playing it is at your OWN RISK and OWN RESPONSIBILITY. No refund will be made for anything lost due to this game being beta. We have the rights to terminate your account at any time, due to any reason. The BETA version also means that we have the rights to edit anything without any notice, but we will try to keep you as updated as possible.

3. REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS
In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form. You will provide an email address which we can contact you for the duration of your play. Donating members will provide Elite Avengers with 1 (one) email address and accept that this will be the only email address used for communications with them.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete or Elite Avengers has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Elite Avengers has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).


3.1. REGISTERING FROM PUBLIC PLACE
If you register from school, library or any other public facility you run the risk of your account being banned or account termination because it is almost impossible for us to know if you have created other accounts on another computer. For this reason we are telling you NOW that if you have registered from any of these places and your account is banned or terminated, then we will not accept the excuse of "I didn't know" or "It wasn't fair" as an excuse to reactivate your account.

If you play from school, library, a cafe or business network, you MUST report this to the help desk or a moderator. Failure to do so will result in the accounts being frozen. The message must state the school, library, Cafe or business name and also the IP ranges used by that network (you will have to get this info from the network administrator). Mods or administrators will verify this information. Home and personal networks will fall under the Duping regulation below

4. ACCOUNT INFORMATION

You agree to (a) immediately notify Elite Avengers of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security and (b) ensure that you exit from your account (log-out) at the end of each session. We currently have the (one of the) best protection against hacking attempts, for example, you're only allowed to attempt to login for 5 times each 5 minutes. If you fail to do this then you have to wait 5 minutes before being able to retry. We also offer the option to IP protect your account, which means you can't login anywhere else but from the location you registered at, but be aware, if your IP changes every now and then, access to your own account might also be blocked. Elite Avengers cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this.

5. ACCESS TERMINATION

Cause for such termination shall include, but not be limited to, (a) breaches or violations of the TOS or other incorporated agreements or guidelines, (b) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (c) a request by you (self-initiated account deletions), (d) unexpected technical issues or problems. Further, you agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in Elite Avengers sole discretion and that Elite Avengers shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your account, any associated email address, or access to the game.

6. ACCOUNT SELLING
No selling of your account, as this is illegal at the internet it is also illegal at Elite Avengers! You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes, any portion of this game, use of the game, or access to the game. If you sell an account it will be terminated or banned, with no warning. If you keep trying to sell your account we'll report this to the local police.

7 SELLING/TRADING ELITE AVENGERS ITEMS
No selling or trading Elite Avengers items. There is to be no selling, trading or bartering of Elite Avengers items (money, points, etc) for items, money or any other currency from another game, real life items, money, services or anything else that hasn't got anything to do with Elite Avengers. If you are found to be doing so then you will be warned or in worse case scenarios banned, depending on how many times you have violated the rules before and the impact of the violation.

You are responsible for all content you upload to Elite Avengers. You agree to not use the game to:
Upload, post, email, message or otherwise make available of any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.

10. GAME CONNECTION
Elite Avengers will do anything in its power to keep the site up and running. We can not guarantee the connection. If the connection failes we will not refund any payments.

11. TERMINATING YOUR ACCOUNT
Individuals who want their account modkilled/terminated will have to find another way then requesting it (ex, hitlist yourself or ask/pay someone else to kill it for you, ect). If you want your account terminated because you do not wish to play anymore then you may terminate your account by not logging into it any more. We do not terminate any account as we can never be 100% sure if it's the same person as the one that registered the account requesting the termination.

12. OTHER SITES/REAL LIFE
It isn't allowed in any way to take revenge on a user's account, on this Elite Avengers site, for things that have happened in real life or on another game. The things you aren't allowed are: killing, hitlisting, spamming or anything else because of something that happened on another game or in real life. You are also not allowed to: kill, hurt/hit, spam, threaten or anything else in real life for something that happened on this site, please remember it's just a game.

If your account was killed on this game for reasons stated above then you must provide sufficient proof to a moderator/administrator to have your account re-activated and to have the player that killed your account banned. A verbal account of the facts does not count as sufficient proof.

13. GAME DONATIONS
Donations of any sort made to Elite Avengers towards running and maintenance costs and/or any other premium features made through an online vendor are non-refundable. Elite Avengers does not guarantee or make any representations regarding the use or the results of donating/paying through sites such as Paypal or PayGol with regard to their correctness, accuracy, and reliability or otherwise. The entire risk is carried by you (i.e. not Elite Avengers). You assume the complete cost of any necessary servicing, repair or correction.
Elite Avengers uses third party companies to handle transactions, therefore the admins will do what they can to try and help you if you have a problem with one of these companies, however, if the companies need more personal information (address, phone number(s), etc) it will be the donator's responsibility to contact the third party company to resolve the situation.

Donating means you donate an amount of money and may receive something back as a little thank you. This is how we handle donations at Elite Avengers, by donating we will often assign an appropriate reward to encourage the donations. Elite Avengers is only responsible for delivering you the reward (the points) once as we promised it. After you received your reward, it is totally under your own responsibility (so not Elite Avengers). We will try to keep the game as safe and bugless as possible but it's your own responsibility if you lose a reward because of a bug. We have the full right to take away a reward or remove access to it (for example due to being banned for any form of violation of the ToS) at any time for any given reason.

There may be a limited amount of time (e.g. due to a 2 week notice prior to a full reset) for you to spend your points and it is your own responsibility to do so in time. Rewards received within a maximum of 3 months before a reset may be given again (the length is dependent on how long the previous round ran for (e.g. If a round is 3 months long, the maximum reward period may only be 1½ months.)), to the player after the reset, but only if the player is able to provide the right codes of the donations made within this time. Any rewards not received within the time as specified above will not be refunded.

14. MEMBER CONDUCT
You understand that all information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages or other materials ("Content"), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the person from which such Content originated. This means that you, and not Elite Avengers, are entirely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the game. Under no circumstances will Elite Avengers be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service.

14.1. RACISM
No Racism, all forums of racism is prohibited, any racism will result in a ban or account termination, we don't like if you have a picture, text or anything else that is against someone's race or culture. If we find out you have anything of this in your profile or posted any form of racism in the forums this could result in a ban. Also if you SMSed someone with any racist comments then he/she is requested to report this to someone of the Elite Avengers team. Racism starts with something small but could end in big fights. Everybody has their own way of life and you must respect this at Elite Avengers. If you think you can't then don't accept the Terms of Service!

14.2 ORIENTATION
Insultingly referring to any aspect of sexual orientation pertaining to themselves or other players is strictly prohibited anywhere on Elite Avengers. Violators of this will be banned for an undetermined amount of time.

14.3 STAFF/PLAYER INTERACTION
Both players and staff are expected to coexist in a polite and respectful environment. This applies to professional interaction only, as there are instances when the staff member is acting in the capacity of a player, and not an administrator. This is not to say a staff member may become abusive and claim they were acting in a player capacity, but it does mean a staff member need not be professional at all times. Remember, staffs are volunteers. If you have a problem with a staff member please report it to an admin. If you have problems with an admin then report it to a different one.

14.4 INSULTING
No Insulting Using Real Life Information. This is a mafia game so you can expect tempers to flair and flame wars to start, however you must never insult anbody based on real life information that you know or suspect to be true, even if the player has previously volunteered this information themselves; this may result in a ban or a modkill. We will also delete anything that includes a picture or text that could insult somebody based on their real life situation. You must also never post a picture of another user without their permission. A ban could be from 12 hours to 7 days or even for ever if you did something like it before. If somebody is insulting you in any chat programs it isn't possible to get him or her banned. It is very easy to fake the logs. The only way you can get someone banned is if they SMSed you, posted something in one of the forums or has any text on their profile directed at you that could insult you.
Verbally abusing players and staff is considered poor etiquette and measures can be taken without notice or explanation.

14.5 PORN/OFFENSIVE MATERIAL
No Porn or offensive materials. This is not a sex site so don't post it here. If you like something and want to share it with other players search a nice forum where it is allowed and share it with them. This is a PG-13 game and people of all kind of ages are playing Elite Avengers and most won't like it if you post anything porn related. Posting anything porn related may result in getting your account banned for ever. No exceptions for anybody. You may think that we won't notice it if we aren't online, but there are people who think it is very annoying and will report this to the Elite Avengers team. The decision on what is pornographic and/or offensive rest solely with moderators or administrators. Choose wisely.

14.6 PLAYER HARASSMENT
This is a difficult topic to be clear about. The Internet is such that public "flame wars" are bound to happen. It is therefore up to game staff to determine when a communication crosses the line into abusive. This is not to say everyone must play nice, this is a mafia game after all. This harassment law only applies to continued and targeted harassment of a particular person, not the occasional insult. The following language assumes a staff member has deemed the interaction as continued harassment. Public harassment of fellow players will result in a 10 day account banning. In general, private communications are just that, private, and not subject to this harassment laws. Players are encouraged to use the provided privacy tools to stop harassment. With that said, players who attempt to undermine the privacy tools will also get their 10 day account banning.

14.7 STAFF HARASSMENT
Any complaints against staff will be presented in a clear, courteous and professional manner, free of profanity and overflowing politeness. Slanderous/personal attacks/profane communications against staff members will not be tolerated, and will result in the offending remarks removed, and a 10 day account banning for the player.

15. GAME RULES
We have some standard rules, which you can read on some pages, the rules will be explained here. If you suspect anybody of not following the rules report this to the Help Desk or a mod immediately!

15.1 ADVERTIZING
Any advertising for other sites (without prior permission from an Admin) on Elite Avengers may result in getting your account terminated, banned or a given a warning. A ban could take from 32 hours to for ever. Depending on how many times you already advertised and how much you advertised. Advertising is when you purposely advertise something to other players with the intent of getting them to view the material/site that you have told to them. You can discuss other games/sites but you can't advertise them publicly. This policy refers to advertising on Elite Avengers only as we have no control of players advertising on other sites.

15.2 BOTTING
Use of bots or any other automated techniques (e.g. auto refreshing or clickers) to do one or more action(s) at Elite Avengers is prohibited and will get your account terminated permanently.

A rule of thumb is that you have to click at least once for every action you do at Elite Avengers and scripts that allow you to do multiple things with one simple click or key press are not allowed. You must click the button intended to do an action and may not use any other methods to submit the data (e.g. continuously refresh the page).

15.3 DUPING
Only 1 account per player allowed. We will make exceptions to have multiple accounts per IP (location - NOT PER PLAYER) but this does not mean you may create 2 accounts for yourself to play, but rather yourself and a brother / sister / parent / other family relative may play.

These players are allowed be in the same crew, transfer money, points, cars or anything else to each other, commit Organized Jobs together, kill or hitlist for each other or use a third party to do so. You're simply not allowed to help the other user on your IP (location) in any way possible! We reserve the right to require proof of separate players for verification. Home and personal networks fall under this rule as well regardless of how many PC's are installed at that location. If you have a past history for rule violation and are allowed to play again in a future round, you will only be allowed 1 player per IP, period.

You must report immediately if you have a relative playing on the same IP as you (include usernames, a phone number(THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL!) and your dates of birth). Failure to report may result in your account(s) being terminated or banned.

If you play from school, library, a caf� or business network, you MUST report this to the help desk or a moderator. Failure to do so will result in the accounts being frozen. The message must state the school, library, caf� or business name, phone number(THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL!) and also the IP ranges used by that network (you will have to get this information from the network administrator). Mods or administrators may verify this information. Home and personal networks will fall under #1 above.


15.4 BUG ABUSE
No Bug Abuse, it isn't allowed to abuse any exploit or bug in the game. As long as this game is still in a BETA version it has still a lot of bugs, because we can't find them all, and it is very hard to fix them too. The bugs are entering in the game by accident and will be removed when we know they are here. If you report a bug you may receive a reward, depending on the bug that is found and how large it is. If you are a bug abuser and want to help Elite Avengers by testing some bugs for it first report this to the Elite Avengers team before abusing any of them. Depending on severity, game bug abuse will result in anywhere from a 30 day banning to account deletion. Bugs, loopholes, security flaws, or any inconsistencies in the game should be immediately reported in the appropriate thread on the message boards

15.5. HACKING & CRACKING
No Hacking or cracking, people are working very hard and very long to get what they are, and if you think they did it by not following the rules report it.. We won't accept it if someone is hacked and will check it with the powers we have at that moment. We won't do any more then we can, and won't be busy with it for an hour, but we will still check it and report it at the Admins forum. At 99% of the accounts that are hacked it is there own fault. They used an easy to guess password like there own username, there own real life name, a very short password, an email address used for MSN, AIM or anything else. If someone at MSN want too much information of you don't believe anything he or she says. They are just trying to get information of you and use this information as password(s). When someone wants to know too much about you then block him or her and maybe even change your password. Change your password at least EVERY MONTH and use as many different signs as possible..

Lost accounts due to Hacking. Accounts will be returned their proper owner provided that the player can prove their identity. No game items or game currency will be returned however.

15.6 PASSWORD/ACCOUNT SHARING
It is completely not allowed to login to another account when you also have an account on Elite Avengers. This means 2 persons may play on one account as long as the total accounts they own is 1 (the one they're sharing). As soon as one of those persons creates a new account he/she may not access the other account anymore. NO EXCEPTIONS MADE!

If you wish to take interest for somebody else tell him/her to send you the money and then you can do it legally, but do not login to his/her account! This also counts for Organized Jobs, if you want to do an Organized Job you will all have to be online and you're not allowed to share passwords. If anybody is caught sharing an account he/she is banned for hacking into it which will take forever.

15.7 MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
The rules described here designed so that everyone has a fair chance in the game. Having multiple accounts gives you an unfair advantage and is not allowed.

15.8. INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ACCOUNTS
Interactions on the same IP are not permitted (any kind of transfers; points / money / properties / booze / cars, ect).
If you are playing on a pc that has the same IP as another player and you do transfers between your accounts we (admins/mods) do not know if it's actually 2 people or 1 person using 2 accounts so if you are banned then this is why.

Example - Player A registered at home with IP #123 and Player B registered at school with IP #456. Well, if PLayer A and Player B are both playing at school now both using IP #456) and Player A transfers money to Player B the IP's will show that it could possible by Player B hacking into Player A's account and transferring money to himself, or it's a dupe since the IP is registered to Player B....understand?

Best thing to do if you are playing the game from a PC that is registered to another player is to NOT transfer ANYTHING to them at all.
If you registered or play the game from a publically access place (school, library, ect) it's already in the TOS that you are taking a chance.

15.9 COMMON SENSE
Elite Avengers tries to keep the rules clear, and with as much information as possible in order to avoid any unexpected problems, but we are not always able to update rules in time with the required information. Therefore, you are required to use your common sense in any situation that isn't described within the rules. It's your own responsibility to choose how 'hard' you set your common sense at (how hard the rules/limits you think about for yourself are), but we will always use our little bit of normal common sense on adding rules or terminating/suspending access to your account afterwards, so don't go to easy on everything. If you are unsure about whether a certain rule is in place, please use the help desk to form your query.

15.10 USE OF PROXIES
It is not allowed to use any proxy or VPN (mainly temporarily a different IP to cover up your own, real IP - something like a continuous redirection so you got a different IP whiles visitting websites) to access Elite Avengers. Using proxies to, for example, give clicks, can be easily found out(this doesn't mean we look for it at any account, but we do when somebody requests it(at another player or him-/herself) or when a player is killing or killed) and your account will be terminated/suspended for it. Creating new accounts using proxies is also not allowed at Elite Avengers, and because you're probably only just human, it's also not hard to find out about it. Most proxy IPs can be found simply using google, but we also use more advanced methods to find out about proxies, like looking at the IP owner.

15.11 ABUSING RULES/LIMITS
Abuse of any rule or limit will get your account terminated or suspended. Abusing a limit is, for example, using 'safe shots'(now and then shooting a small amount of bullets at a player so he/she is unkillable for a while) as this way you block other members form attempting to shoot this player and give him/her an almost free, temporary, 'safe house'. This 'running away' limit was designed to give every real target a chance of getting out of the location where he/she was shot at and not to 'just' protect him/her against (possible) killers without first having a serious attempt.

16. FORUM RULES
Please read the forum rules posted inside the forum rules sticky at each forum.

Though the administrators and moderators of Elite Avengers put in their hardest effort to remove messages from the forums which are violating the Terms of Service, it is still impossible to read and check every message. By agreeing to these forum rules you shall not post any messages which can be defined by any person or group as obscene, sexual orientation, adult or rude nor they will not include anything that can be seen as or result in hate, racism, threats, vandalism, hacking, stealing or anything else which is in violation of the Elite Avengers rules or the law.

The owners, administrators or moderators can not be helt responsible for the messages posted at this forum and these only include the opinion of the writer him-/herself.

The owners, administrators and moderators will always keep the right to delete, edit, close, hide or move any messages posted at the Elite Avengers forum without any given reason. If this is done so you shall not post the same text or information again as this would only make it harder to read anything else which might be violating the rules.

17. COPYRIGHT
You are not allowed to copy anything off of this site. The copyright rules are very clear that anything made by a person is immediatly copyright-protected, so if you copy anything off of Elite Avengers it will be reported to the local police.

You also aren't allowed to copy any text, page structure, pictures or anything else(so not limited to those things) that you found at this site and put it on an other site. When using/showing screenshots on other sites you must link back to Elite Avengers. This link should be as visible or clickable as the screenshot, in normal font size and color. As long as a person doesn't intend to use the items for own profit(for example using an image for refferals), you could assume we will allow it, but if we request you to take something off line you must do it as soon as possible. Making a duplicated of this game(in any way and size) will also be reported.

An article about copyright at copyright.gov says: "Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright."

18. REPORTING VIOLATORS
If you are aware of anyone violating these games rules, you are required to notify the moderators or administrators
Enjoy the game!
