Epic may update the Software remotely without notifying you, and you hereby consent to Epic applying patches, updates, and upgrades. Epic may modify, suspend, discontinue, or limit your access to any aspect of the Software at any time.

Epic may offer you the ability to purchase a limited license to use Premium Features for a fee. Also, Epic may facilitate the exchange of certain Premium Features through the Software, in some cases for a fee. You may only use such Premium Features if you pay the associated fee. When you pay the fee to obtain such Premium Features, you are purchasing from Epic the right to have your License include such Premium Features for you to use as part of the Software. Regardless of any references Epic may make outside this Agreement to purchasing or selling Premium Features, all Premium Features are licensed, not sold, to you under the License. Use of an Epic Account Balance to purchase Premium Features is subject to Epic’s Terms of Service.
Premium Features are not redeemable for money or monetary value from Epic or any other person, except as otherwise required by applicable law. Premium Features do not have an equivalent value in real currency and do not act as a substitute for real currency. Neither Epic nor any other person or entity has any obligation to exchange Premium Features for anything of value, including, but not limited to, real currency. You agree that Epic may engage in actions that may impact the perceived value or purchase price, if applicable, of Premium Features at any time, except as prohibited by applicable law.
All purchases of Premium Features are final and are not refundable, transferable, or exchangeable under any circumstances, except as otherwise required by applicable law. Epic, in its sole discretion, may impose limits on the amount of Premium Features that may be purchased, accumulated, redeemed or otherwise used.
Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, Epic, in its sole discretion, has the absolute right to manage, modify, substitute, replace, suspend, cancel or eliminate Premium Features, including your ability to access or use Premium Features, without notice or liability to you. You may not transfer, sell, gift, exchange, trade, lease, sublicense, or rent Premium Features except within the Software and as expressly permitted by Epic. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, Epic reserves and retains all rights, title, and interest in and to the Premium Features. The license to Premium Features under the License will terminate upon termination of the License and as otherwise provided herein.
When you provide payment information to Epic or its authorized processor, you represent that you are an authorized user of the payment card, PIN, key, account or other payment method specified by you, and you authorize Epic to charge such payment method for the full amount of the transaction.

If any such rights may not be licensed under applicable law (such as moral and other personal rights), you hereby waive and agree not to assert all such rights. You understand and agree that Epic is not required to make any use of any Feedback that you provide. You agree that if Epic makes use of your Feedback, Epic is not required to credit or compensate you for your contribution.

Epic and its licensors own all title, ownership rights, and intellectual property rights in the Software. Epic, Epic Games, Unreal, Unreal Engine, and Paragon, and their respective logos, are trademarks or registered trademarks of Epic and its affiliates in the United States of America and elsewhere. All rights granted to you under this Agreement are granted by express license only and not by sale. No license or other rights shall be created hereunder by implication, estoppel, or otherwise.
The Software includes certain components provided by Epic’s licensors. A list of credits and notices for third party components may be found in the game interface.
7.Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability
The Software (including any Premium Features) is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, “with all faults” and without warranty of any kind. Epic, its licensors, and its and their affiliates disclaim all warranties, conditions, common law duties, and representations (express, implied, oral, and written) with respect to the Software including without limitation all express, implied, and statutory warranties and conditions of any kind, such as title, non-interference with your enjoyment, authority, non-infringement, merchantability, fitness or suitability for any purpose (whether or not Epic knows or has reason to know of any such purpose), system integration, accuracy or completeness, results, reasonable care, workmanlike effort, lack of negligence, and lack of viruses, whether alleged to arise under law, by reason of custom or usage in the trade, or by course of dealing. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Epic, its licensors, and its and their affiliates make no warranty that (1) the Software will operate properly, (2) that the Software will meet your requirements, (3) that the operation of the Software will be uninterrupted, bug free, or error free in any or all circumstances, or (4) that any defects in the Software can or will be corrected. Any warranty against infringement that may be provided in Section 2-312 of the Uniform Commercial Code or in any other comparable statute is expressly disclaimed. Epic, its licensors, and its and their affiliates do not guarantee continuous, error-free, virus-free, or secure operation of or access to the Software. This paragraph will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, neither Epic, nor its licensors, nor its or their affiliates, nor any of Epic’s service providers (collectively, the “Epic Parties”), shall be liable in any way for any loss of profits or any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or the Software (including any Premium Features), even in the event of an Epic Party’s fault, tort (including negligence), strict liability, indemnity, product liability, breach of contract, breach of warranty, or otherwise and even if an Epic Party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Further, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the aggregate liability of the Epic Parties arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or the Software (including any Premium Features) will not exceed the total amounts you have paid (if any) to Epic for the Software or Premium Content during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the events giving rise to such liability. These limitations and exclusions regarding damages apply even if any remedy fails to provide adequate compensation.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, some countries, states, provinces or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation of liability as stated above, so the above terms may not apply to you. Instead, in such jurisdictions, the foregoing exclusions and limitations shall apply only to the extent permitted by the laws of such jurisdictions. Also, you may have additional legal rights in your jurisdiction, and nothing in this Agreement will prejudice the statutory rights that you may have as a consumer of the Software.
You agree to indemnify, pay the defense costs of, and hold Epic, its licensors, its and their affiliates, and its and their employees, officers, directors, agents, contractors, and other representatives harmless from all claims, demands, actions, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees, costs, and expert witnesses’ fees) that arise from or in connection with (a) any claim that, if true, would constitute a breach by you of this Agreement or negligence by you, or (b) any act or omission by you in using the Software (including any Premium Features). You agree to reimburse Epic on demand for any defense costs incurred by Epic and any payments made or loss suffered by Epic, whether in a court judgment or settlement, based on any matter covered by this Section 8.
If you are prohibited by law from entering into the indemnification obligation above, then you assume, to the extent permitted by law, all liability for all claims, demands, actions, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees, costs and expert witnesses’ fees) that are the stated subject matter of the indemnification obligation above.
Without limiting any other rights of Epic, this Agreement will terminate automatically without notice if you fail to comply with any of its terms and conditions. You may also terminate this Agreement by deleting the Software. Upon any termination, the License will automatically terminate, you may no longer exercise any of the rights granted to you by the License, and you must destroy all copies of the Software in your possession.
Except to the extent required by law, all payments and fees are non-refundable under all circumstances, regardless of whether or not this Agreement has been terminated.
Sections 2, 4-11, and 15-17 will survive any termination of this Agreement.
