Commercial Use Agreement for In-Person hosting: if you have purchased the standard license for a single use game and would like to use it for commercial use and/or want to purchase the commercial license to reuse the game, you must also purchase this Commercial License. One commercial license covers one game. You'll need a separate commercial license for each game. The in-person commercial license expires after a three-year period and the licensee will be responsible to renew upon expiration. You can host the game an unlimited amount of times (as long as the Buyer on record is present as the host). The standard license is not a beta test license that has been turned into a store credit - you need to have purchased an active standard license to be commercially licensed.
You are not authorized to alter or sell any game documents in any form (i.e. electronic or prepared), and you must not transfer any portion of the game materials to another end-user. The Buyer/licensee on record must be present in the room at all times for the duration of the game. If you breach the agreement, you will void the license and you may be subject to legal action, as that is a violation of the license and copyright law. This license gives you the right to host the published My Mystery Party mystery game at your event, as long as you (the Buyer on record/User/Licensee) are present to host the event, and abide by the agreement. The game is not to be transferred in any manner to another end user.
In all promotional materials (including online content and printed), you are to include a statement that it is a MyMysteryParty.com game with a live link to www.mymysteryparty.com (printed materials must include the statement and a web address.) Failure to do so will void the license without notice. Removing the MyMysteryParty.com copyright information or logo is forbidden, and will void this license without notice. Any attempt at hiding the fact you are hosting our game will void the license. Therefore, using/posting our materials online, failing to mention it is our game, and removing any evidence of copyright will void this license. We will contact you via email at the email address on file for the User to notify you of the breach and voided license.
Upon purchase, simply print out your order confirmation for your records, and the PDF file of the license for your records that you will receive upon purchase.
Important: if you have made the purchase of the game license separately, in the comments section of the order form, you must put the order number and name of the game in which you purchased the license for. Without this information, the license is not active. You will need a license for each game that you wish to use as described above. If you purchase a license, and do not provide a previous order number, and have multiple instant download orders - this license will be activated and applied to the most recent purchase of an instant download game after 24 hours. After 24 hours, this may not be altered, as the commercial license may not be transferred. Using a game without a license for profit may result in legal action.
This license is not transferable and there are no exceptions. There are no refunds on commercial licenses, so be sure you are purchasing a license that you will use.
If you need to use our graphics for the promotion of your event in any form (i.e. paper print, web, video, etc.), you are to include a reference that all art is the property of and was provided by MyMysteryParty.com. If this reference is on the web, there must be an active link to our site. Any violation of these terms (i.e. we find that you are selling our products to an end user, etc.) will nullify this commercial license and we will pursue immediate legal action against you.
This in-person (face-to-face) hosting license expires after a three-year period. You hereby agree to download the most current version of the commercially licensed game as they arise. The game site will have a notice when an update is made to the game. You will not be allowed to use former versions of the game for your events.
On occasion, we retire our games. If you have a commercial license for a game that is no longer offered on our site, you still have the ability to host the game during the three-year period per this commercial license. Albeit, we will no longer be updating nor supporting the game with updates, pre-game site, or other game materials.
