You are responsible for those fees, including fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.

Assent to Be Bound

By using the Service, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If you do not agree with any term or condition, do not use the Services.

Your Registration Obligations

In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of Canada or other applicable jurisdictions. Canada Games is concerned about the safety and privacy of all its users, particularly children.

For this reason, parents who wish to allow their children access to the Service should assist them in setting up any relevant accounts and supervise their access to the Service. By allowing your child access to the Service, they will be able to access all of the Service. Please remember that the Service is designed to appeal to a broad audience.

Accordingly, as the legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the Services and/or Content is appropriate for your child.

It is expressly understood, acknowledged and agreed that you shall, regardless of whether or not formally requested to do, provide to Canada Games reasonable suggestions, comments and feedback regarding the Services, including but not limited to usability, bug reports and test results, with respect to the Service (collectively, "Feedback").

If you provide such Feedback to Canada Games, you shall grant Canada Games the following worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty free, fully paid up rights:
