The Game is operated by Numicus LLC. Those who choose to access the Game from locations outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws.

If any provision of this License Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make it enforceable to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of this License Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. If, however, it is determined that such provision cannot be reformed, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The provisions of Sections 2, 3, 4 and 8 through 12 shall survive any termination of this License Agreement.
