RICHIE TERMS OF USE

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS 

1.1 Agreement: You should carefully read the terms and conditions outlined in this Agreement, effective when you click the “AGREE & CONTINUE” button (the “Effective Date”) during the Richie account creation process. By doing so, you (the “User”) agree to abide by this Agreement. 

1.2 Included Policies: This Agreement incorporates the Privacy Policy and the Community Guidelines between Mega Fortuna Teknoloji ve Yazilim Anonim Sirketi (“Richie” or “we”) and you. 

1.3 Changes: Richie may modify the Terms and Services at any time. New services, features, or tools added to the current Services will be subject to these Terms. It is your responsibility to periodically review the Terms at Richie Rewards Terms and our Privacy Policy and Community Guidelines

2. SERVICES 

2.1 Description: The Services offered by Richie consist of the website and mobile applications (the “App”) providing rewards for downloading, reviewing, and/or using suggested games. 

3. ACCOUNT & ELIGIBILITY 

3.1 Registration: Some Services require a User account, limited to one per User. Only individuals 18 years or older may register. 

3.2 Restrictions: Transferring or selling an account is prohibited. By using the Services, you represent that: 

  • (a) Your information is truthful and accurate; 
  • (b) You will maintain the accuracy of this information; 
  • (c) You will comply with these Terms; 
  • (d) You won’t violate any laws or regulations; 
  • (e) You will protect your account information and be solely responsible for its use. 

3.3 Termination: Richie may delete your account without warning if you violate these Terms. 

3.4 Additional Features: 

  • Display of Other Apps: Some Services may require enabling this option to personalize game suggestions. 
  • Guest Access: Certain Services may provide restricted “Guest” access, with limitations subject to change. Full access requires account sign-up. 
  • Active Playtime: In our gaming application, “playtime” refers to the period during which a player is actively engaged in gameplay. Active playtime includes navigating game menus, participating in matches or missions, making in-game decisions, and any interaction with the game’s environment that requires player input. Our systems are designed to recognize and record such active participation.
  • Exclusions from Playtime: To maintain the integrity of our gaming community and the accuracy of playtime records, the following are explicitly excluded from being counted as playtime:
    • Idle Time: Merely leaving the game application open without active interaction does not constitute playtime. Our system monitors for inactivity, and extended periods of idleness may be flagged for review.
    • Ad Watching: Viewing advertisements within the application, whether incentivized or not, is not considered active playtime. Players are encouraged to engage with the game itself for their playtime to be recorded.

We encourage all players to enjoy our games actively and fairly. These measures help us provide a better gaming experience for everyone and ensure that playtime achievements and leaderboards accurately reflect genuine player engagement.

By accepting these terms, you agree to engage with our game actively and understand that non-compliance with these playtime conditions can lead to the aforementioned consequences.

4. RULES OF USER CONDUCT 

4.1 Social Interaction 

The App contains a social feature that allows users to interact with one another. Users must follow our Community Guidelines, and violation may result in restricted access to social features or an indefinite ban. 

4.2 Account Restrictions 

  • One Account: Users may only set up one account within the App. Creating multiple accounts or transferring/selling an account is prohibited. 
  • Prohibited Activities: The use of a virtual private network (VPN), proxy, internet bot (Bot), or any deceptive practices to falsify activity or revenue is strictly forbidden. These actions are considered fraudulent and will be blocked, possibly leading to device blacklisting or account suspension/termination. 

4.3 Software Restrictions 

  • Autoclicker Programs: Users found using autoclicker programs or similar software to falsify phone data may be banned indefinitely. 
  • Emulators: Accessing the application through an emulator on any platform may result in an indefinite ban. 
  • Game Modification Software: Accounts associated with software that modifies games or unlocks paid content for free may be banned. 
  • Disposable Email Addresses: Accounts using disposable email addresses that forward messages or auto-verify links may be banned. 
  • Rooted Devices: Users found using rooted or privileged control devices may be banned indefinitely, and gift card purchase requests from these accounts may be rejected. 

4.4 Additional Restrictions 

  • Banning of Accounts: Richie may ban any account related to fraudulent activity or created by individuals under the age of 18. This includes, but is not limited to: 
  • Downloading the App through unauthorized sources; 
  • Manipulating IP addresses; 
  • Failing face or phone verification for fraud purposes; 
  • Using software to appear active while idle; 
  • Fraudulently earning coins. 
  • Consequences of Banning: Banned accounts may have all coins nullified, and redemption of rewards may be disabled. 
  • Limitation on Devices Per IP Address: We strive to provide a fair and competitive environment for all players. To this end, our IP duplication policy permits up to three devices to access our game from the same IP address. This allowance accommodates players from single households where multiple individuals may enjoy our game on different devices.
    • Prohibition of Excessive IP Sharing:
    • Device Restriction: Any number of devices exceeding the three-device limit per IP address is considered a breach of our terms and can be flagged as suspicious activity indicative of cheating or account manipulation.
    • IP Monitoring: Our systems continuously monitor IP activity to ensure compliance with our fair use policy. If an IP address is associated with more than three devices, it may be subject to investigation.
    • Permanent Ban: Deliberate IP duplication to circumvent our device limit, gain an unfair advantage, or engage in cheating behaviors will result in a permanent ban on all associated accounts.
    • Account Verification: In the case of legitimate circumstances where more than three devices must access the game from a single IP address (e.g., public spaces, schools, institutions), account holders must seek prior approval from our support team to avoid penalization.

By playing our game, you acknowledge and agree to our IP duplication policy. We reserve the right to enforce these terms to ensure a level playing field for all our players.
