Access to Warhammer Platform/Maintenance
Given the nature of the online realm, Hammerfall cannot practicably guarantee that access to the Warhammer Platform will be uninterrupted or ‘error-free’.
Hammerfall may from time to time perform scheduled maintenances on the Warhammer Platform. You will be notified at least one (1) day in advice by way of a public notice on the Warhammer Platform, in the event where Hammerfall is required to conduct a scheduled maintenance, and that scheduled maintenance is likely to last longer than 60 minutes.
Given the sensitivity of the online realm, Hammerfall may also be required to conduct unscheduled maintenances to the Warhammer Platform in the event where something goes unexpectedly wrong or traffic on the Warhammer Platform is unexpectedly high.
Where practicably possible, Hammerfall endeavour to limit the frequency and duration of any site maintenance, whether scheduled or unscheduled, which may often require access to the Warhammer Platform to be temporarily suspended or restricted.
Hammerfall will not be held liable for any delay or frequent suspension or restriction of the Warhammer Platform as above if such delay, suspension or restriction arises as a result of any action or cause which is beyond the reasonable control of Hammerfall.
Hammerfall will not be held liable for any account data loss which may result from equipment failure, data corruption or otherwise.

Hammerfall may, at its own discretion, remove any material uploaded by users in any chat room, forum or discussion board facilitated by Hammerfall on the Warhammer Platform immediately and at its sole discretion, should Hammerfall determine such material to be in contravention with the terms and conditions espoused in this agreement.
Hammerfall will do its utmost best to patrol all Discussion Boards and Chat Rooms facilitated by the Warhammer Platform, however, due to the nature and magnitude of interaction which often takes place between users, it is often difficult for Hammerfall to react instantaneously to content complaints, or comments which are considered defamatory, illegal, obscene or abusive. To that end, Hammerfall will not be held responsible for any content put up by users of Discussion Forums or Chat Rooms.
If a dispute arises in connection with this Agreement, a party to the dispute must, prior to issuing legal proceedings in respect of the dispute, give to the other party notice specifying the dispute and requiring its resolution under this Agreement.
If the dispute is not resolved within 28 days after the Notice of Dispute is given to the other party, either party may commence legal proceedings.
This does not prevent any party from obtaining any injunctive, declaratory or other relief from a court which may be urgently required.
Amendments to this Agreement
Hammerfall may, from time to time, make changes to terms and conditions, or to specific functions of the Warhammer Platform or the Game. It is your responsibility to monitor these terms and conditions from time to time to ensure that you remain compliant with what is required from you when using the Warhammer Platform or otherwise. Changes to these terms and conditions will be effective immediately upon publishing on the Warhammer Platform.
If any terms or condition of this Agreement deemed invalid, void, or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the overall validity and enforceability of the remainder of the Agreement.
No term or condition of this Agreement has the effect of replacing, overriding, or otherwise removing, your statutory rights.
All services provided by Hammerfall with respect to the Game or the Warhammer Platform come with guarantees which cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law.
