Thank you for your interest in Edcoda, LLC’s (“Edcoda,” “we,” “us,” “our”) Coda Quest – an online role-playing game that delivers academics through a game-based 3D environment. This Coda Quest End User License Agreement (“EULA”) governs your use of Coda Quest.

 

Do not install or play Coda Quest if you do not agree to be bound by this EULA.

 

You may only install and play Coda Quest with a parent or legal guardian’s consent if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with us (age 18 in most states). You must have a parent review this EULA with you if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with us.
REQUIREMENTS TO PLAY

 

In order to play Coda Quest, you must have:

 

• an account;
• a Windows computer, Mac, or mobile device that meets or exceeds the system requirements; and
• Internet access.

 

We do not guarantee that Coda Quest will be compatible or operate with your computer, Internet provider’s service plan, mobile carrier’s service plan, or any other piece of hardware, software, equipment, or device you use to access or play Coda Quest. You are responsible for providing, maintaining, and ensuring the compatibility of all hardware, software, and other system requirements necessary for your access to and use of Coda Quest. You are also responsible for all third party charges and fees, including to your Internet service provider and mobile carrier, in connection with your access and use of Coda Quest and for complying with any contracts, terms of service agreements, and restrictions associated with such third party services.

 

USER ACCOUNTS

 

Your Account. You must have an account to play Coda Quest. When you create an account, you may have the option to select a unique username. Your username must be appropriate and not offensive. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to change and disable any account that does not meet our naming standards.

 

This account is personal to you and you may not share it or allow any other person to utilize your account. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You must immediately notify us if your registration information changes or you learn of or have reason to suspect any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security.

 

Storing Credentials. Coda Quest may allow you to store your login credentials in the game so that you can be automatically logged in each time you access Coda Quest. If someone else has access to your computer or mobile device the automatic login feature will allow that person to have access to your Coda Quest account. You are responsible for our damages resulting from unauthorized access to Coda Quest from your account and we will have no liability for your damages or loss related to such unauthorized access or use.

 

CODE OF CONDUCT

 

Communication. You are responsible for how you express yourself when communicating with other Coda Quest players. Do not use language that is offensive or vulgar. Hate speech and discriminatory language is not allowed. Do not threaten or harass other Coda Quest players.

 

Cheating. You are responsible for how you and your account are represented in Coda Quest. We consider cheating to be using software that changes gameplay, exploiting bugs, degrading the gameplay experience for other Coda Quest players, and engaging in activity that gives you an unfair advantage.

 

REMOVAL OF ACCESS

 

We have the right at all times and without notice to you to review and audit your access and use of Coda Quest and your compliance with the terms of this EULA.
