10. WARNING ABOUT THE RISK OF EPILEPSY AND THE PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHEN USING A VIDEO GAME
Some people are likely to have seizures or loss of consciousness when they see certain types of flashing lights or frequent elements in our daily environment. These people are exposed to seizures when they watch certain television pictures or play certain video games. These phenomena may occur even though the subject has no medical history or has never had an epileptic seizure. If you have ever had symptoms related to epilepsy (seizure or loss of consciousness) with light stimulation, please consult your physician before use. In any case, please observe the following rules when using a video game:
- avoid playing if you are tired or sleep-deprived;
- make sure you are playing in a well-lit room;
- during use, take breaks of ten to fifteen minutes every hour.
In the event that QD makes forums available to players allowing them to exchange with each other in connection with their use of the Product, You undertake not to make any comments that may be considered defamatory, insulting, racist, pornographic, discriminatory, immoral, violating the rights of third parties or contrary to the regulations in force.
This EULA represents the entire legal agreement between you and QD with respect to the Product and supersedes all prior agreements, representations, warranties or understandings between you and QD on the same subject matter.
If any part of the EULA is found to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, including, but not limited to, the warranty exclusions and limitations of liability set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed replaced by a valid and enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the EULA shall remain in effect.
The failure or delay of QD (or its Licensors) to exercise any right or remedy provided by this EULA or by law does not constitute a waiver of such right or any other right or remedy, nor does it prevent or restrict the further exercise of such right or remedy. The sole or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall not prevent or restrict the subsequent exercise of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy. The waiver of a right or remedy may only be considered to have occurred after the signature of a written declaration to that effect by QD or by the User.
QD may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time. However, you may not assign, transfer or sub-license any or all of your rights or obligations under the EULA without the express prior written consent of QD.
In addition to any excuse provided by applicable law, we shall be excused from liability for non-delivery or delay in delivery of the Product arising from any event beyond our reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable by either party, including but not limited to, labour disturbance, war, terrorism, fire, denial of service attack, internet outages, accident, adverse weather, inability to secure transportation, governmental act or regulation, and other causes or events beyond our reasonable control, whether or not similar to those which are listed above.
