Additional terms: In addition to the Master Terms, your use of any Services may also be subject to specific terms applicable to a particular Service ("Additional Terms"). If there is any conflict between the Additional Terms and the Master Terms, then the Additional Terms apply in relation to the relevant Service.
Collectively, the Terms: The Master Terms, together with any Additional Terms, form a binding legal agreement between you and Goblin Refuge in relation to your use of the Services. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the "Terms."
Human-readable summary of Sec 1: These terms, together with any special terms for particular websites, create a contract between you and Goblin Refuge. The contract governs your use of all websites operated by Goblin Refuge, unless a particular website indicates otherwise. These human-readable summaries of each section are not part of the contract, but are intended to help you understand its terms.
YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF ANY THE SERVICES SIGNIFIES THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS. By accessing or using any Services you also represent that you have the legal authority to accept the Terms on behalf of yourself and any party you represent in connection with your use of any Services. If you do not agree to the Terms, you are not authorized to use any Services.
Human-readable summary of Sec 2: Please read these terms and only use our sites and services if you agree to them.
From time to time, Goblin Refuge may change, remove, or add to the Terms, and reserves the right to do so in its discretion. In that case, we will post updated Terms and indicate the date of revision. If we feel the modifications are material, we will make reasonable efforts to post a prominent notice on the relevant Website(s). All new and/or revised Terms take effect immediately and apply to your use of the Services from that date on, except that material changes will take effect 30 days after the change is made and identified as material. Your continued use of any Services after new and/or revised Terms are effective indicates that you have read, understood, and agreed to those Terms.
Human-readable summary of Sec 3: These terms may change. When the changes are important, we will put a notice on the website. If you continue to use the sites after the changes are made, you agree to the changes.
