CREATING A USER ACCOUNT WITH THE ROLEPLAY GRID

You must be 18 years or older to create a user account with The Roleplay Grid.

You must use a valid e-mail account. We will keep the account on file. You will be asked to inform us if the validity of the account ends. If at any time you are not registered with a valid account your account may be closed by The Roleplay Grid.

You are allowed to create a limited number of user accounts using the same e-mail address. The Roleplay Grid reserves the right to set and limit the maximum number of such user accounts. When you have created an account you agree that information provided can be looked at to ensure that it corresponds to this TOS and does not endanger its application in The Roleplay Grid.

The Roleplay Grid may request any clarification from you by e-mail and reserves the right not to approve your account or terminate it at any time if The Roleplay Grid does not accept your clarification. The Roleplay Grid has no obligation to define the reasons for a denial or termination.

COMMUNITY BEHAVIOUR

The TRG region is an Adult Grid. It is also an adult and roleplay playground which offers a fun and interesting environment to users or avatars. Keeping the entire Grid Adult rated and applying the 18+ rule allows us to grant broad freedoms to residents and visitors who respect our principles.  Our adult play areas can be thus be advanced, and open for all to use who respect our age limit. These Avatars can feel safe here also when they ‘play’ in the public area. 

Child avatars are not allowed to enter or stay in TRG as this is an Adult rated and open region. An avatar who gives the impression through body and face as a well as general behaviors of being clearly younger than 18 years old will be asked by TRG owners of their staff to make necessary changes in the Avatar. TRG owners and staff have the right to remove the avatar from the region and the The Roleplay Grid if the demand is not met. We do NOT determine ‘Avatar Age’ by height alone!

(TRG owners may design parts of the region as moderate, on a case by case basis. These regions will contain limited animations. Owners will monitor how this works and decide whether these settings are made permanent.)

The Roleplay Grid has zero tolerance for activities that can depict child grooming, violence and bdsm involving child AVs or other activities where children are bodily or mentally harmed. Any attempt by anyone to control young adult Avatars in any way is forbidden. All such activities may result in banning users – particularly those who violate child Avs – from The Roleplay Grid. 

In exceptions where Mature Rating is in place on select Regions, Teen, Child or Toddler age Avatars should be playing and never involved in sex. 

Please note that this applies both to public, private and group protected areas.  

(Our responsibility is managing TRG.  The first responsibility to apply these principles is with residents and visitors themselves.  TRG owners can intervene if they consider that there is a reason to do this.

What Avatars wish to do outside and unrelated to the TRG region or grid is their own decision and that of their home or host regions or grids.)  

UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR

Behavior in any manner which is offensively coarse, intimidating or threatening, constitutes unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, is racist or xenophobic, attacks or demeans on basis of sexual identity, or is otherwise likely to cause annoyance is forbidden.

Any harassing and offensive behavior is strictly forbidden.

OOC Violence and threat of violence, be it physical or not, is strictly forbidden in The Roleplay Grid – with the obvious exception of IC Roleplay scenarios — however ALL rules regarding underage avies apply across the board and at all times.

OOC Pushing, attacking, the use of any weapons against any other user or Avatar, or any similar action is accepted only in designated role play areas, the use of which have to be authorized by TRG owners or staff. Excessive behavior can be forbidden also in role play.

Users themselves are expected to understand what constitutes Inhuman and disgusting behavior. If necessary, The Roleplay Grid owners and staff will intervene to end such behavior.

The Roleplay Grid is an open community where all are given an equal opportunity to participate. We don’t accept social exclusion or discrimination and there will be no groups established for this purpose. Everything that is allowed by us in the The Roleplay Grid public areas is legal and in accordance with these TOS to our best knowledge.

TRG owners can design specific regions or SIMs where more restrictions are applied than those in the TOS. The additional restrictions must be respected as parts of these TOS.

If forbidden or otherwise unwanted behavior is seen by or reported to owners or staff of The Roleplay Grid it will be investigated by TRG owners. If this is found to be true, swift action can be taken even without notice.

TRG owners have the right to enter any property in the TRG regions and modify or remove any objects using their administrators rights. 

TRG owners have no obligation to explain why any of this action is taken but will make an effort to do so.

(This is of course only for extreme cases which would probably and hopefully never happen. We would always first contact those who would be affected and seek solutions through discussion and agreement.) 

These rules apply to anyone, everyone, local resident, and hyper grid visitors.

TRG owners have the right to restrict access or terminate access to The Roleplay Grid.

Warnings issued by TRG owners or authorized staff for breach of guidelines, rules or terms outlined in this document are final. If you wish to appeal, direct your request, via email, to TRG owners

PRIVACY

The Roleplay Grid only processes data relevant to the operation of its service and does not share this data with any third-party unless required by law or requested by law enforcement.

With registration a user’s e-mail and IP address are logged for security reasons. When registering you agree that The Roleplay Grid logs this data for future reference.

Users may be contacted via their e-mail address regarding their accounts, potential offers, verification or security reasons.

Users are required to commit themselves to these TOS. TRG owners and staff are not here to follow or control the behavior of users or other avatars present in The Roleplay Grid. The responsibility is left to the users themselves.

If TRG owners or staff see something that merits it, they will react of course. TRG owners can monitor sim statistics and contact
users if they consider it necessary. If they respect the principles of these TOS, residents and other users are free to do what they wish in their own homes and inside in TRG buildings. If there could be a case of illegal activities, The Roleplay Grid and TRG owners have a right to intervene also there and take any necessary action.

Users who possess homes or second homes in The Roleplay Grid can install security perimeters if agreed in advance with TRG owners. At their request, TRG owners can take action to end any violations of privacy by any users or visitors. Please note that TRG owners can and have the right to override or change any security arrangements.

CONTENT POLICIES

TRG residents, users or visitors are not allowed to engage in commercial activities in any The Roleplay Grid regions without the advance permission of TRG owners.

By design The Roleplay Grid cannot guarantee the integrity or security of content within the Service. Users are solely responsible for abiding to third-party content licenses and agreements.

TRG owners do not exercise editorial control over the content of The Roleplay Grid and will make no specific efforts to review the textures, objects, sounds or other content created within the Grid. If TRG owners receive a complaint from legal owners of content they will investigate it and when necessary remove it from The Roleplay Grid.
