You are also authorizing a charge to you on a recurring basis of a monthly subscription fee at the rate quoted at the time of purchase. By purchasing a subscription, we will automatically charge on a recurring basis the payment method associated with your account. For subscription Services purchased in a Game played on a platform such as Apple or Google, the applicable platform will charge you for the subscription fee and the platform’s payment terms will apply. Please review the appropriate platform’s payment terms for additional information.

Trial subscriptions are offered free of charge for a certain period of time from activation specified in the relevant trial offer in the Game. If you do not cancel the subscription within such trial period, the trial subscription will automatically convert into a paid subscription for the fees and for the subscription period set out in the Game at the time of the activation of the trial period. You may cancel a subscription during its free trial period using the subscription setting of your account. Any paid subscription you activate begins immediately from the activation of such paid subscription and not after the expiration of any trial period. Any unused trial period will therefore be forfeited if a subscription is activated prior to the expiration of such trial period.

Your subscription will automatically renew each subscription period unless and until you terminate your subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews, otherwise payment of the subscription fees for the next period will be taken automatically via your chosen payment method. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing us with valid credit card or payment account details for payment of all fees.

The transfer of Virtual Items is prohibited, except where expressly authorized in the Games, if any.

Subscription rates are based on an amount in U.S. Dollars. If you are using a local currency, the actual amount may fluctuate based on currency exchange rates without notice to you. The charges will be applied to the payment instrument or method you provide when you start your subscription (or to a different payment instrument or method, if you change your account information). Please note that prices and charges are subject to change. If we make a change to the monthly subscription rate in U.S. Dollars, we will notify you of such change in advance.

Once you have purchased a subscription, you cannot cancel your subscription for the current subscription period as that is activated as soon as you purchase a subscription. However, you may cancel your subscription for the next subscription period as follows: you can manage and cancel your subscription at any time in your “Account Settings” of your device.

In connection with the foregoing release, you hereby waive California Civil Code 1542 and any other applicable law or statute, which says, in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

17. Limitation of Liability and Damages

(a) The following is applicable for Users in the USA and rest of the world (outside the European Union):

  • (i) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law: (i) in no event shall Word Fun, Inc. be liable for any direct, special, indirect, or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits, or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the Company Services, the Content, the App, or any other materials including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from reliance on any information obtained from Word Fun, Inc.; and (ii) in no event shall the aggregate liability of Word Fun, Inc., whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive, or imputed), product liability, strict liability, or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of or inability to use the Services exceed the amount paid to Word Fun, Inc. by you, if any, for accessing the Services during twelve (12) months immediately preceding the date of the claim or one hundred dollars ($100), whichever is greater.
  • (ii) These limitations of liability also apply with respect to damages incurred by you by reason of any services provided by third parties other than Word Fun, Inc.
  • (iii) You acknowledge and agree that Word Fun, Inc. has offered the Company Services and entered into these Terms in reliance upon the warranty disclaimers and the limitations of liability set forth herein, that the warranty disclaimers and the limitations of liability set forth herein reflect a reasonable and fair allocation of risk between you and Word Fun, Inc., and that Word Fun, Inc. would and that the warranty disclaimers and the limitations of liability set forth herein form an essential basis of the bargain between you and Word Fun, Inc.

(b) The following is applicable to Users in the European Union: Neither Word Fun, Inc. and its affiliates and partners in all cases, nor you, will be responsible for: (i) losses that were not caused by any breach on their or your part; (ii) any indirect or consequential losses (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure); or (iii) any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable by both you and us when these terms of service were agreed or updated as applicable. You are not granted any rights under this section.

18. Indemnification.Each Player agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Sponsor, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, information providers, partners, advertisers and suppliers (the “The Protected Parties”) from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, resulting from (a) provision of Unsolicited Information or User Generated Content by him/her, or (b) his/her use of the App; and/or (c) his/her breach of the terms of these Official Rules (including infringement of third parties’ worldwide intellectual property rights or negligent or wrongful conduct) or a breach by any other person accessing the App using his/her account.



(a) Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Word Fun, Inc. each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. Word Fun, Inc. will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact Word Fun, Inc. by emailing us. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration.

(b) Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Word Fun, Inc. agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled through binding arbitration and not in a court of law. You and Word Fun, Inc. each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms of Service or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms of Service. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in these Terms of Service.

(c) About Binding Arbitration. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review.

(d) Scope of Agreement. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.

(e) Exceptions. Notwithstanding this Agreement to arbitrate, either party may (i) bring an action on an individual basis in small claims court (to the extent the applicable claim qualifies), (ii) bring issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Trade Commission and the California Division of Consumer Services, which agencies may be able to seek relief on a party’s behalf (the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services may be contacted in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210), and (iii) bring suit in court to seek a preliminary injunction or other interim relief pending the outcome of arbitration.


(g) Notice of Dispute. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Word Fun, Inc. must be addressed to the address in Section 12.4 below (“Notice Address”) and must be sent by certified mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with Word Fun, Inc. and must be sent by certified mail. If Word Fun, Inc. has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your Word Fun, Inc. account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Word Fun, Inc. and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Word Fun, Inc. may commence an arbitration proceeding.

(h) Arbitration Proceedings. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules, or, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use), the Consumer Arbitration Rules (in each case, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Section 6.10, and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Service. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Section 11.8. Unless Word Fun, Inc. and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in the United States for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA shall determine the location. If your claim is for ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, Word Fun, Inc. agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

  • (i) Costs of Arbitration; Legal Fees.

    • (i) Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against Word Fun, Inc. and the value of the relief sought is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, then Word Fun, Inc. will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by AAA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). If the circumstances in the preceding sentence apply, but the value of relief sought is more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding, then Word Fun, Inc. will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses that the arbitrator determines are necessary to prevent the arbitration from being prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous according to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, you agree to reimburse Word Fun, Inc. for all such cost and expenses that Word Fun, Inc. paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA rules.
    • (ii) Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party’s request, the arbitrator shall award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use) Word Fun, Inc. will not seek to recover its attorneys’ fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
  • (j) Future Changes. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, you and Word Fun, Inc. agree that if Word Fun, Inc. makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) Word Fun, Inc. will provide you with notice of such change and you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address described above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision as unmodified by such rejected change.

20. General Terms

(a) Governing Law. These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the federal laws of the United States of America. The parties agree that the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act as enacted any State of the United States shall not apply to this Agreement or any performance hereunder and the parties expressly opt-out of the applicability of UCITA to this Agreement.

(b) Forum. In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or for any other reason, then any dispute or claim not subject to arbitration shall be resolved exclusively by a federal court located in Orange County, California, and to the extent there is no subject matter jurisdiction in such federal court, then a state court in Orange County, California. Both you and Word Fun, Inc. agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that such forum is convenient.

(c) No Waiver. The failure of either party at any time to require performance by the other party of any provision of these Terms of Service shall in no way affect that party’s right to enforce such provisions, nor shall the waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this Terms of Service be taken or held to be a waiver of any further breach of the same provision.

(d) Notice. Notices to you may be sent via either email or regular mail to the address at 9777 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 430, Los Angeles, CA 90210.

(f) Severability. If any provision of these Terms of Service or any guidelines is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then for both you and Word Fun, Inc. that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms of Service to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

(g) Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms of Service, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions of it.

With respect to these Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, and any other agreement between you and Word Fun, Inc., or other policy implemented by Word Fun, Inc., the English language version of each of these documents is the version that governs your use of the Services and controls in the event of any conflict.
