Nothing in this Agreement will prejudice the statutory rights that you may have as a consumer of the Services. Some countries, states, provinces or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation of liability as stated in this section, so the below terms may not fully apply to you. In those jurisdictions, the exclusions and limitations below apply only to the extent permitted by the laws of such jurisdictions.
THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS AND SOFTWARE, ARE PROVIDED BY EPIC ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. THE EPIC PARTIES (DEFINED BELOW) MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE SERVICES. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THE EPIC PARTIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NONINFRINGEMENT. THE EPIC PARTIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, EPIC AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS (“EPIC PARTIES”), WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT. FURTHER, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, THE EPIC PARTIES’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID (IF ANY) TO EPIC UNDER THIS AGREEMENT 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.
This section only applies to the extent allowed by the laws of your jurisdiction. If the laws of your jurisdiction do not allow you to enter into the indemnification obligation below, then you assume, to the extent permitted by the laws of your jurisdiction, 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 below.
You agree to indemnify, pay the defense costs of, and hold harmless the Epic Parties from and against any claims, demands, actions, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable attorney and expert witness fees) arising out of or in connection with (i) any claim that, if true, would constitute your breach of this Agreement or your negligence, (ii) any act or omission by you in using the Services, or (iii) Your Recordings or your Feedback.

9. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Any dispute or claim by you arising out of or related to this Agreement shall be governed by North Carolina law, exclusive of its choice of law rules. For any disputes not subject to binding individual arbitration, you and Epic agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Superior Court of Wake County, North Carolina, or, if federal court jurisdiction exists, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. You and Epic agree to waive any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts (without affecting either party’s rights to remove a case to federal court if permissible), as well as any right to a jury trial. The Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply. Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter will not apply to this Agreement. This paragraph will be interpreted as broadly as applicable law permits.
10. Binding Individual Arbitration; No Class Actions
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Most issues can be resolved quickly and amicably by contacting Epic player support at https://www.epicgames.com/customer-service. But we understand that sometimes disputes can’t be easily resolved by player support. This Section explains how you and Epic agree to resolve those disputes, including (where applicable) by binding, individual arbitration.
This Section 10 will be interpreted as broadly as applicable law permits.
a. Informal Resolution
If you have an issue that our player support can’t resolve, prior to starting arbitration you and Epic agree to attempt to resolve the dispute informally to help get us to a resolution and reduce costs for both parties. You and Epic agree to make a good-faith effort to negotiate any dispute between us for at least 30 days (“Informal Resolution”). This 30 day period starts on the day you or Epic receive a written notice of a dispute from the other party (a “Notice of Dispute”) in accordance with this Agreement.
You will send your Notice of Dispute to Epic Games, Inc., Legal Department, ATTN: NOTICE OF DISPUTE, Box 254, 2474 Walnut Street, Cary, North Carolina, 27518, U.S.A. Include your name, any relevant account name you use, address, how to contact you, what the problem is, and what you want Epic to do. If Epic has a dispute with you that is subject to Informal Resolution, Epic will send our Notice of Dispute to your registered email address and any billing address you have provided us.
If you reside in the European Union (“EU”), you may also be entitled to submit your complaint to the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Platform. ODR allows EU consumers to resolve disputes related to the online purchases of goods and services without going to court.
If the dispute isn’t resolved within 30 days by Informal Resolution or small-claims court (below), you or Epic may start an arbitration in accordance with this Agreement.
b. Small Claims Court
Instead of using Informal Resolution, you and Epic agree that you may sue us in small-claims court in your choice of the county where you live or Wake County, North Carolina (if you meet the requirements of small-claims court). We hope you’ll try Informal Resolution first, but you don’t have to before going to small-claims court.
c. Binding Individual Arbitration
THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS IN THIS SECTION WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY.
You and Epic agree that Disputes (as defined below) will be settled by binding individual arbitration conducted by the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) subject to the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law and according to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures effective July 1, 2014 (the “JAMS Rules”) as modified by this Agreement.
This means that you and Epic agree to a dispute-resolution process where we submit any Dispute to a neutral arbitrator (not a judge or jury) that makes the final decision to resolve the Dispute. The arbitrator may award the same remedies to you individually as a court could, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
The arbitrator’s decision is final, except for a limited review by courts under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and can be enforced like any other court order or judgment.
(i) Disputes We Agree to Arbitrate
You and Epic agree to submit all Disputes between you and Epic to individual binding arbitration. “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy (except those specifically exempted below) between you and Epic that relates to your use or attempted use of the Services or the Services generally, including without limitation the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Binding Individual Arbitration section.
You and Epic agree to arbitrate all Disputes regardless of whether the Dispute is based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory.
The Informal Resolution and Binding Individual Arbitration sections do not apply to (i) individual actions in small-claims court; (ii) pursuit of enforcement actions through a government agency if the law allows; (iii) a complaint or remedy under the EU General Data Protection Regulation; (iv) an action to compel or uphold any prior arbitration decision; (v) Epic’s right to seek injunctive relief against you in a court of law to preserve the status quo while an arbitration proceeds; (vi) claims of piracy; creation, distribution, or promotion of cheats; and intellectual-property infringement; and (vii) the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below.
You and Epic agree that whether a dispute is subject to arbitration under this Agreement will be determined by the arbitrator rather than a court.
(ii) Arbitration Procedure
To start an arbitration, follow the instructions for initiating an arbitration on the JAMS website. You will send a copy of any Demand for Arbitration to Epic Games, Inc., Legal Department, ATTN: ARBITRATION OF DISPUTE, Box 254, 2474 Walnut Street, Cary, North Carolina, 27518, U.S.A. Epic will send any Demand for Arbitration to the email address and any billing address you have provided us.
The arbitration will be conducted by a single JAMS arbitrator selected with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes. You and Epic both agree that the arbitration will be conducted in the English language and that the arbitrator will be bound by this Agreement.
If an in-person hearing is required, the hearing will take place either in Wake County, North Carolina, or where you reside; you choose.
The arbitrator (not a judge or jury) will resolve the Dispute. Unless you and Epic agree otherwise, any decision or award will include a written statement stating the decision of each claim and the basis for the award, including the arbitrator’s essential factual and legal findings and conclusions.
The arbitrator may only award legal or equitable remedies that are requested by you or Epic to satisfy one of our individual claims (that the arbitrator determines are supported by credible relevant evidence). The arbitrator may not award relief against Epic respecting any person other than you.
Any decision or award may be enforced as a final judgment by any court of competent jurisdiction or, if applicable, application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement.
(iii) Arbitration Fees and Location
If you start the arbitration, you must pay the JAMS filing fee required for consumer arbitrations.
In some situations, Epic will help with your fees to (hopefully) get us to a resolution quickly and fairly:
If the Dispute involves a claim of damages of USD $10,000 or less, Epic will pay all of the JAMS costs, including the fees you otherwise would have been required to pay.
If the above doesn’t apply to you, but you demonstrate that arbitration costs will be prohibitive compared to litigation costs, Epic will pay as much of your JAMS costs as the arbitrator finds is necessary to prevent arbitration from being cost-prohibitive (as compared to the cost of litigation).
Subject to the last paragraph of this section, even if Epic wins the arbitration and the applicable law or the JAMS Rules allow Epic to seek our portion of the JAMS fees from you, we won’t.
JAMS costs do not include your attorneys’ fees and costs, and attorneys’ fees and JAMS costs are not counted when determining whether a Dispute involves a claim of damages of USD$10,000 or less.
Subject to the last paragraph of this section, Epic won’t seek our attorneys’ fees or expenses from you in any arbitration, even if the law or the JAMS Rules entitle us to do so. If you choose to be represented by an attorney, you will pay your own attorneys’ fees and costs unless the applicable law provides otherwise.
The provisions in this section are contingent upon you bringing your arbitration claim in “good faith”. If the arbitrator finds you brought an arbitration claim against Epic for an improper purpose, frivolously, or without a sufficient pre-claim investigation into the facts or applicable law, then the payment of all fees and awards, including any right Epic may have to seek our portion of the JAMS fees or attorneys’ fees or expenses from you, will be governed by the JAMS Rules.
(iv) Notice and Filing
If a Dispute must be arbitrated, you or Epic must start arbitration of the Dispute within two (2) years from when the Dispute first arose. If applicable law requires you to bring a claim for a Dispute sooner than two years after the Dispute first arose, you must start arbitration in that earlier time period. Epic encourages you to tell us about a Dispute as soon as possible so we can work to resolve it. The failure to provide timely notice shall bar all claims.
(v) Continuation in Effect
This Binding Individual Arbitration section survives any termination of this Agreement or Epic’s provision of Services to you.
(vi) Future Terms Changes
Although Epic may revise this Agreement in its discretion, Epic does not have the right to alter this Agreement to arbitrate or the rules specified herein with respect to any Dispute once that Dispute arises.
d. Class Action Waiver
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and Epic agree to only bring Disputes in an individual capacity and shall not:
● seek to bring, join, or participate in any class or representative action, collective or class-wide arbitration, or any other action where another individual or entity acts in a representative capacity (e.g., private attorney general actions); or
● consolidate or combine individual proceedings or permit an arbitrator to do so without the express consent of all parties to this Agreement.
If all or any provision of this Binding Individual Arbitration section is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then you and Epic agree that the provision will be severed, and the rest of this Agreement shall remain in effect and be construed as if any severed provision had not been included. The sole exception is that if the Class Action Waiver is found invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, you and Epic agree that it will not be severable; this entire Binding Individual Arbitration section will be void and unenforceable and any dispute will be resolved in court subject to the venue and choice of clauses specified in this Agreement. Under no circumstances shall arbitration be conducted on a class basis without Epic’s express consent.
f. Your 30-Day Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out of and not to be bound by the Binding Individual Arbitration and Class Action Waiver provisions set forth in this Agreement. To exercise this right, you must send written notice of your decision to the following address: Epic Games, Inc., Legal Department, ATTN: ARBITRATION OPT-OUT, Box 254, 2474 Walnut Street, Cary, North Carolina, 27518, U.S.A. Your notice must include your name, mailing address, and Epic Account, and state that you do not wish to be bound by the Binding Individual Arbitration and Class Action Waiver provisions set forth in this Agreement. TO BE EFFECTIVE, THIS NOTICE MUST BE POSTMARKED OR DEPOSITED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE ON WHICH YOU FIRST ACCEPTED THIS AGREEMENT UNLESS A LONGER PERIOD IS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW; OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE BOUND TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION. You are responsible for ensuring that Epic receives your opt-out notice, so you may wish to send it by a means that provides for a delivery receipt. If you opt out of these provisions, Epic will not be bound by them with respect to Disputes with you.

This Agreement, including any other terms and policies referenced in this Agreement, are the entire agreement between you and Epic concerning the Services and supersede any other agreements between you and Epic. Unless otherwise contemplated in this Agreement, there are no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement. No waiver of this Agreement by Epic shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of that term or condition or any other term or condition, and any failure of Epic to assert a right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, that provision will be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that, except as stated in Section 10(e), the remaining provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect. You may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement, including any rights to use the Services. We may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, with or without notice to you.
