Limited Operation of the Sites and Future Changes

The Sites will only be operational for a limited period of time, as determined by Hasbro, at its sole and absolute discretion. If we decide to (a) close all accounts on the Sites on a wholesale basis, and/or (b) shut down, delete or remove the My Monopoly Website and/or the My Monopoly App, and/or (c) make material changes to the My Monopoly Website or the My Monopoly App as a whole (as determined by us, at our sole and absolute discretion), we will notify the user community by posting a notice on the My Monopoly Website and/or the My Monopoly App, as applicable, at least thirty (30) days before the applicable date, subject to the following sentences. No advance notice will be given for any changes, including material changes, that Hasbro determines, at its sole and absolute discretion, should be made without notice or with less than thirty (30) days' notice. You will not receive any individual notice, so please check this User Agreement from time to time so that you are aware of any updates or modifications made to it.

Hasbro reserves the right to charge a fee for accounts and/or for use of the Sites in the future. If we do so, we will notify the user community by posting information on the Sites at least thirty (30) days before any fees become effective. You will not receive any individual notice, so please check this User Agreement from time to time.

Hasbro reserves the right to terminate any account (and eliminate any information relating to such account) that has been inactive for thirty (30) days or more, at its sole and absolute discretion. Terminated accounts will not be reactivated except by Hasbro, at its sole and absolute discretion. You will not receive any notice of deactivation.

User accounts, usernames and passwords, and any virtual objects, data, compilations, work, audio/visual materials, statistics, points, rewards, credits/currency and other virtual items that you may view, create or 'earn', or that are otherwise associated with your account on the Sites are not transferable, even between your own accounts, and have no retail or cash value. Any attempts to violate this rule may result in the suspension or termination of your account, at Hasbro's sole and absolute discretion.

 

Your Account

Your individual account on the Sites is valid for a limited period of time, as determined by Hasbro, at its sole and absolute discretion. Hasbro reserves the right to deactivate, eliminate or modify any individual account at any time, for any reason, without notice.

You may be asked to create a username(s) and password(s) to access the Sites or certain features of the Sites. We may also ask you to provide an answer to a special question about yourself that will help us identify you in case you forget your password or username in the future. DO NOT use personal information that can identify who you are. If you include information that Hasbro, at its sole and absolute discretion, deems personally identifiable, suggestive, explicit or offensive, then Hasbro may immediately and permanently terminate your account without notice.

We may use your username, password, and special questions and answers (collectively “Access Information”) to identify your account when you return to the Sites. If you forget your Access Information, you may, at Hasbro's sole and absolute discretion, be subject to your account being terminated, suspended, modified and/or subject to a recovery method to be determined solely by Hasbro, every condition of which, including time frame for recovery and/or rejection of a user's request for recovery, may be changed by Hasbro at any time without notice.

You hereby agree to adhere to Hasbro's rules regarding recovery of lost Access Information, which may include, but is not limited to interacting with Hasbro Consumer Affairs and Legal Staff. Hasbro is under no obligation to reply to queries related to lost Access Information in a timely manner. You accept the rules regarding lost Access Information and understand that these and other Hasbro rules, policies and procedures may vary, are subject to change at any time without notice and are to be solely determined by Hasbro. This extends to usernames, passwords, special questions/answers and any combination thereof. This also extends to Hasbro's investigation of suspected fraudulent behaviour and all other security-related issues with regard to maintaining ongoing operation of the Sites, and ensuring the safety and security of all users thereof.

The best way to ensure that you continue to enjoy the features of our Sites is for you to keep your Access Information in a safe place offline. Hasbro may require any or all of this information in response to any enquiries with Hasbro Consumer Affairs, Legal Staff and/or others.

IF YOU DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT, THIS DATA WILL BE DELETED PERMANENTLY AND HASBRO WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RECOVER ANY OF THE ITEMS, PROGRESS, DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION (“ACCOUNT INFORMATION”) STORED IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCOUNT. YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR, AND HASBRO WILL HAVE NO OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY ACCOUNT INFORMATION THAT YOU DELETE, WHETHER INTENTIONALLY OR BY ACCIDENT. DELETING THE MY MONOPOLY APP WILL REMOVE THE APP FROM YOUR DEVICE BUT WILL NOT DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION. IN ORDER TO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION, YOU MUST ALSO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT.

 

Links

The Sites may contain links to third-party websites, and your use of such sites will be governed by the Terms of Use and Privacy Polices of their owners and operators ("Linked Sites"). Linked Sites are not under the control of Hasbro, and Hasbro is not responsible for the contents thereof. These links are provided only as a convenience, and inclusion of a link does not imply endorsement of or affiliation with the Linked Site by Hasbro. Hasbro is not responsible or liable for any damage or loss caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available on or through any Linked Site.

 

In-app Purchases on the My Monopoly App

The My Monopoly App may allow you to purchase, using real money, virtual items for use within the My Monopoly App. In order to do so, Hasbro uses third-party payment providers and their platforms (i.e. Apple/iTunes or Google/Play) to make and complete your purchase(s). When you purchase virtual items through our App, you are not interacting with Hasbro, but rather with Apple or Google. These third-party sites are not under the control of Hasbro, and Hasbro is not responsible for the contents thereof. Your use of these third-party sites is governed by the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies of the owners and operators of such third-party sites. If you are a minor, please ask a parent before making a purchase. You can disable in-app purchases through your phone’s device settings.

Even though you may have used real money to purchase virtual items for use within the My Monopoly App, you agree that you do not “own” and do not have any right or title in, or to any of those virtual items, or any other virtual items that appear in the My Monopoly App, whether “earned” through your activities on the My Monopoly App or “purchased” from Hasbro. In addition, you agree that these virtual items have no cash or real-world value, and that Hasbro has no liability towards you and does not owe you any refunds or credits for the loss or unavailability of any virtual items.
