Pre-Release Feedback Agreement (CLOSED)
Welcome to EA. We hope you enjoy participating in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, which includes access to pre-release product, EA Virtual Currency (defined below in Section 3), and In-Game Content (collectively, the “Pre-Release Feedback Materials").
By participating in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, you agree to the PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK AGREEMENT Terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT install or use THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK MATERIALS, OR PARTICIPATE IN THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK PROGRAM.
1. Pre-Release Feedback Program Participation Requirements
By participating in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, you agree that:
A. Your access to the Pre-Release Feedback Program begins once you install or access the Pre-Release Feedback Materials and ends when the Pre-Release Feedback Program expires unless extended or terminated earlier.
B. An Internet connection and EA Account may be required to participate in the Pre-Release Feedback. To create an EA Account, you must provide a valid email address. You must be eligible to participate in the Pre-Release Feedback Program and be a resident of a country where participation in the Pre-Release Feedback Program is permitted.
C. You are 18 years of age or older.
Your use of the Pre-Release Feedback Materials is subject to all license and other terms described in the EA User Agreement.
3. Virtual Currency and other In-Game Content
EA may offer and/or sell virtual or fictional points, coins, or currencies (“EA Virtual Currency”) in the Pre-Release Feedback Program. When you obtain and/or buy this EA Virtual Currency, you receive a limited, non-assignable, non-exclusive, revocable license to access and select from in-game products, services, assets, or content (“EA In-Game Content”) that EA expressly makes available in the Pre-Release Feedback Program. The EA User Agreement contains additional terms that apply to your access and use of EA Virtual Currency and EA In-Game Content.
The Pre-Release Feedback Program and Pre-Release Feedback Materials will run in a test environment, and characters, achievements, progress, features, EA Virtual Currency and EA In-Game Content that you obtain while participating in the Pre-Release Feedback Program may be erased, updated or modified at EA's sole discretion, at any time and without notice to you. EA does not guarantee that any particular EA Virtual Currency or EA In-Game Content will be available at all times or at any given time. These items may not be accessible after the Pre-Release Feedback Program ends, or after commercial launch of the game.
4. Reviewing and Evaluating Pre-Release Feedback Materials
Your participation in the Pre-Release Feedback Program is voluntary, done for your personal enjoyment, and does not constitute employment or an offer of employment between you and EA. EA does not ask or require you to work a certain number of hours or shifts to participate in the Program. EA expects you only to use your leisure time to participate in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, and does not expect you to forego other activities, including gainful employment. Your participation in the Pre-Release Feedback Program and any feedback, suggestions and comments you give EA (such as bug reports and test results) (“Feedback”) do not entitle you to receive compensation of any kind.
EA shall have the right (but not the obligation), at its sole discretion, to credit you for the Feedback, and you grant EA a license to attribute such Feedback to you. You grant EA the right (but not the obligation) to use the Feedback for any purpose, including in any products, marketing, or other media, without your approval or notice, and without compensating you. You represent and warrant that (1) you have the right to enter into this Agreement and assign and grant these rights; and (2) any Feedback provided by you is your original work and does not infringe any third party intellectual property rights.
By participating in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, you agree to receive communications by email about your participation in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, including to solicit Feedback, even if you have not agreed to receive general EA marketing email.
5. Anti-Tamper and Anti-Cheat Technologies
EA may use technical and content protection measures and anti-cheat technologies with the Pre-Release Feedback Materials. For information about how these technologies gather information from your device to help combat piracy and cheating, please refer to EA’s User Agreement (terms.ea.com).
This Agreement is effective until terminated by you or EA at any time without notice. EA may terminate your EA Account, your access to the released title, as well as your access to the Pre-Release Feedback Program and Pre-Release Feedback Materials, if you violate this Agreement or any of the Pre-Release Feedback Agreement Terms. Sections 6-11 of this Agreement survive any termination of this Agreement.
7. Relief and Indemnity
You agree that a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement will cause EA irreparable injury, that money damages would be an inadequate remedy, and that EA shall be entitled to ex parte injunctive relief without bond to stop a breach or threatened breach.
8. Use of Data
When you participate in the Pre-Release Feedback Program, EA may collect and store data from your computer or device, including information about your computer or device and operating system (such as IP Address and device ID), information about your Pre-Release Feedback Materials usage, gameplay and usage statistics, system interactions and peripheral hardware. If you participate in the Pre-Release Feedback Program offline, this data will be stored on your device and transmitted to EA when your device connects to the Internet. EA uses this information to operate its business, improve its products and services, provide services to and communicate with you (including for marketing purposes), provide software updates, dynamically served content and software support, and troubleshoot bugs or enhance your experience.
You should not disclose your personal information in your public communications within the Pre-Release Feedback Materials. EA is not responsible for information that you choose to communicate to other users within the Pre-Release Feedback Program, or for the actions of other users. EA reserves the right to monitor this content and communications.
All Pre-Release Feedback Materials and information you provide EA in connection with the Pre-Release Feedback Program are EA “Confidential Information.” Confidential Information includes: (1) Information about, within, or sent through the Pre-Release Feedback Materials and the Pre-Release Feedback Program, including (a) the performance, capabilities and content of the Pre-Release Feedback Materials; and (b) Feedback from you, other Pre-Release Feedback Program Participants, or EA employees; and; and (2) Information about EA’s products, services or business operations.
You may not share, publish, disclose, distribute, transmit, post or make available, directly or indirectly, Confidential Information to any third party, until EA publicly releases the product(s) or content you are reviewing. However, you may disclose the existence of the Pre-Release Feedback Program and that you are a member of the Pre-Release Feedback Program.
At EA’s request, you must return to EA any and all copies of the Pre-Release Feedback Materials delivered to you.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK MATERIALS PROVIDED HEREUNDER ARE PRE-RELEASE PRODUCTS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK MATERIALS MAY CONTAIN ERRORS AND DEFECTS AND ARE NOT FINAL PRODUCTS. EA DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK PROGRAM OR THE PRE-RELEASE FEEDBACK MATERIALS.
EXCEPT AS STATED ABOVE, ALL STATUTORY WARRANTIES AND PROVISIONS RELATING TO LIABILITY AND EXPORT RESTRICTIONS ARE SET OUT IN THE EA USER AGREEMENT.
11. Changes to this Agreement
If we revise terms affecting existing elements of the Pre-Release Feedback Program, these changes shall be effective thirty (30) days after we send you an in-game or email notice. If we add new terms to the Pre-Release Feedback Program, these terms are effective immediately after we have sent you an in-game or email notice. Your continued use of the Pre-Release Feedback Materials means you accept the changes. Once you accept a version of the Agreement, we will not enforce future material changes without your express agreement to them. If you are asked to accept material changes to this Agreement and you decline to do so, you may not be able to continue to use the EA Pre-Release Feedback Materials provided.
