PATRIAM TERMS AND CONDITIONS

BY VISITING THE PATRIAM.CC DOMAIN OR OUR GAMING SERVERS AT IP: PLAY.PATRIAM.CC, MC.PATRIAM.CC, OR PATRIAM.CC AND BY CONTINUING TO USE ANY OF OUR SERVICES, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Thank you for considering a donation to Patriam. Patriam is a Minecraft server run for our community, and all donations go towards the costs of operating the server. Patriam is not cheap to maintain and all donations, large and small, are very much appreciated by the Patriam Executive Team.

Donations by users have made Patriam possible and they allow us to cover our costs and put our time and effort into making our services even better. If you have other ways you think you can help us out, feel free to contact us.

These Terms and Conditions are applicable for any use of our Services and any donation(s) or payment(s) made at any date, with any virtual item(s)/rank(s) rewarded, and with any amount paid. We reserve the right to update these terms at any time, and you acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Site and this Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. We will notify you of any changes to these terms by posting those changes on this page and including a notification on our forum at http://forum.Patriam.cc. By continuing to use our Services and by making any payments to Patriam, you signify your acceptance of these terms and conditions and our Privacy Policy, and you agree to follow the Server Rules (found at ingame with /rules) and terms of service for any Patriam Services you use.

DEFINITIONS

"Patriam" - The term "Patriam" refers to Patriam as a whole, which is represented by the Patriam Executive Team. The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Patriam and the Patriam Administration Team. The terms "donor", “user,” “you,” and “your” refer to site visitors and any other users of our Services.

"Services" - The term "Services" refers to any service that Patriam offers, which includes our Minecraft Servers, Website, Forums, etc.

"Patriam" - The term "Patriam" refers to the Minecraft servers we offer, which includes servers running on or connected through the IP: "mc.patriam.cc", "play.patriam.cc" or "patriam.cc". Patriam is not in any way affiliated with Mojang AB, or any other company, copyright, or trademark.

DONATION VALUES

Stated donation values are in US Dollars (USD). While Patriam does not charge international fees and absorbs any international fees from payments originating outside of the United States, please be aware that some banks, depending on the method of donation, may still directly charge you a small fee, usually varying with the amount of the payment, which we can neither control nor reimburse.

DONATION METHODS AND PROCESS

Donations are accepted through our CraftingStore.net store at https://store.patriam.cc/ via PayPal, which allows quick and automatic processing from verified accounts.

The username for the account in which donation privileges should be applied must be specified on the donation page under the “username” field. If you are donating for a rank you must be registered on our forums with the same username as ingame. If the username is not included Patriam cannot guarantee that the donation will be applied, however, Patriam will do its best to attempt to identify the Donor.

PROCESSING TIME

Payments made through PayPal are handled automatically by our system. Ranks should be applied between 30 seconds to 2 minutes after the donation is made. If your new rank is not applied within 5 minutes of making a PayPal donation you should contact a Patriam staff member. Note that while your nickname and prefix might not immediately change, permissions should still be applied. Once again, please contact a staff member if these need to be updated.

Please be aware that PayPal may hold payments from unverified accounts or payments by check until that payment clears with the bank, which can increase processing time by up to two weeks. Unfortunately, we have no control over these holds and will not apply for any purchased permissions until payment is confirmed.

PAYMENT RULES

LEGITIMACY OF PAYMENTS

Donations must be made with the expressed authorization of the account holder or cardholder. Donations not made with expressed authorization are not welcomed by Patriam and if issues arise Patriam reserves the right to remove privileges and restrict or remove the user’s access to Patriam services.

REFUNDABILITY

Payments made to Patriam are non-refundable. Patriam will always endeavour to provide a satisfactory outcome as is judged best by the Executive Team for all players and Patriam as a whole. We attempt to be as transparent as possible in our processes and in what you should expect. Even if a Donor is still not satisfied with an outcome, a refund should not be expected, nor will it be given.

APPLICATION OF SERVER RULES

In addition to special Donor rules which provide guidelines for their use of privileges to maintain compliance with the Mojang EULA, all Patriam Rules, found at https://www.patriam.cc/forums/..., and terms of service still apply to Donors. In the event a Donor has their privileges or access to a Patriam service restricted for a breach of the rules or terms of service, they will be given a fair chance to have their concerns heard, as any normal user would have. Donors will not be given special consideration or treatment because they have made a donation.

MEMBERSHIP

Donors seeking a rank package should be members in good standing -- for example, a donation without prior membership approval does not guarantee such approval and until approval is granted will be treated at the discretion of the Executive Team as a "Custom Donation" without rewards.

PRIVILEGES AWARDED TO DONORS

In return for a donation to Patriam, the Donor may receive virtual in-game rewards, currently in the form of in-game privileges. This is done as a way to thank users who donate and to recognize their instrumental support in helping to maintain Patriam. These privileges are non-transferable, and the perks, price, names, and weight of ranks may change at any time.

INGAME PRIVILEGES

In return for donations to Patriam, users may receive a set of privileges that correspond to the level of donation made. The official list of the entitlements for each rank can be found on our website at https://store.patriam.cc. This page supersedes any other donation information, including that given by staff members or located on the craftingstore.net webstore. Patriam will do its best to honour the privileges it specified to a user at the time that they donated. However, this is not always possible and Patriam reserves the right to make changes to the reward scheme and Patriam’s services as Patriam sees fit.

Patriam reserves the right to remove any privileges granted at any time for any reason.

CUSTOM DONATION

You also have the option to donate without receiving privileges. Donating beneath the “Custom” category without instruction from the Patriam Executive Team shall be considered a donation without reward(s).

SERVER CHANGES

Changes may occur, such as a server reset, data corruption, or user error, that could remove privileges or affect gameplay. We will do our best to restore privileges for current subscriptions and active users in good standing, but some items may be irretrievable.

MINECRAFT EULA

We have done our best to remain compliant with the Minecraft End User License Agreement (EULA) and will make every effort to remain so. This may include making changes to donator privileges, with or without notice to the donors, and any loss of privileges will not be refunded.

LIABILITY

Patriam will not be held responsible for any harm caused to its users through the use of its services.

INDEMNIFICATION

You agree to fully indemnify, hold harmless and defend (collectively “indemnify” and “indemnification”) Patriam and its directors, officers, employees, agents, stockholders and Affiliates (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from and against all claims, demands, actions, suits, damages, liabilities, losses, settlements, judgments, costs and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees and costs), whether or not involving a third party claim, which arise out of or relating to (1) any breach of any representation or warranty of Patriam contained in this Agreement, (2) any breach or violation of any covenant or other obligation or duty of Patriam under this Agreement or under applicable law, in each case whether or not caused by the negligence of Patriam or any other Indemnified Party and whether or not the relevant Claim has merit.
