Welcome to Neocron. The Neocron Service is comprised of two components: (i) the Neocron Client software and documentation, and (ii) the Neocron online service represented by the game Servers, communication between Client and Servers, and all related online content including the official Neocron community websites and discussion forums. Your non-exclusive use of the Neocron Client is subject to these Terms of Registration.
Neocron is an online Massively Multiplayer Roleplaying Game ("MMORPG") that is played exclusively online while connected to an official Neocron Server. Neocron is managed and maintained by a global volunteer support staff ("Neocron Support Team") with authorisation and oversight by the respective holders of the Neocron intellectual property.

These conditions form the entire agreement between you and the Neocron Support Team with respect to the use of the Neocron Service. If any term in these conditions is determined by a court to be illegal, invalid or in any way unenforceable, that provision shall be severed from these conditions and the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.
IX: JURISDICTION AND GOVERNING LAW
These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany. As the Neocron Service can be accessed from other places around the world with different laws from those of Germany, when you access the Neocron Service you agree that the laws of Germany will apply to all matters relating to your use.
