In addition, there is the possibility to communicate with other customers. The contract of use for the use of the platform of Striked is concluded directly between the customer and Striked. The following General Terms and Conditions of Striked (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") regulate the legal relationship between Striked and the users. The contracting party is Striked GmbH.
§ 1 Prerequisites for use

An important reason is in particular if there is a serious violation of these terms and conditions, so that a further use of the platform of the user is no longer reasonable for Striked GmbH. In such a case the user will be blocked from the platform.
§ 2 Striked content usage
- A withdrawal of the rights of use is possible under certain conditions. These are explicitly mentioned below.
§ 3 Payment and Striked wallet
- On Striked, users have the option to purchase content and game titles. This can be done either via a direct purchase or by using credit. For this purpose, Striked offers each user a digital credit account called "Striked wallet".
- Payments of purchases or deposits into the "Striked wallet" can be made in the following ways: Payment by credit card, paysafecard, Sofortüberweisung, via PayPpal, as well as via refund (see § 5.).
- Striked reserves the right to perform a credit check and to block a payment method or the entire virtual account in case of negative credit feedback as well as in case of a return debit.
- The "Striked wallet" can be replenished with a maximum of EUR 500 per week. Striked reserves the right to change this limit at any time.
- Deposits to the "Striked wallet" made by credit card must be used for the purchase of paid content and games at Striked and cannot be transferred to another account.
- Each customer is only entitled to set up a digital credit account. The credit contained in the "Striked wallet" can be used to purchase Striked content. It is not possible to use the credit beyond this. The maximum balance may not exceed EUR 500.00, or the equivalent of the respective currency. The available currencies are displayed to the customer when the account is created.
- Striked also offers a direct-to-account distribution feature ("Striked-Direct-to-Account"), where partner games or other content can be sold. The customer can choose to activate the content automatically without having to redeem any codes in their Striked account. The entire purchase process is handled by the third party. See the Refunds and Returns section below for more details.
- Additional special payment transaction costs incurred by the user will be charged to the user. The costs of payment transactions that are within the range of the usual will be borne by the organizer.

- Before the account is closed, if a current email address is on file with Striked, the customer will be notified by two emails of the pending closure and will be prompted to provide a bank account. If within a period of four weeks after sending the second e-mail a bank account has not yet been communicated or if the user cannot be reached via e-mail, Striked will transfer any unpaid balance of the virtual account to a collective account and - if this is possible - inform the customer by e-mail about the closure of the virtual account.
- After the virtual account has been closed, the user is obliged to immediately make a claim to Striked for the payment of any credit balance, indicating his account details.
- The virtual account is considered inactive if a period of more than 12 months has elapsed since the last login.
§ 5 Right of cancellation
- The customer is entitled to a 14-day right of withdrawal when purchasing digital goods. For the exercise and consequences of the revocation, reference is made to the revocation policy.

§ 6 General obligations of the users
- Multiple registrations are not permitted.
- The password for the access-protected area of the internet offer of Striked is to be kept strictly secret by the user and to be changed in regular intervals. If the User violates these duties of care and if an unauthorized third party makes dispositions based on the knowledge of the required password, the User is liable for any unauthorized use of his password and the related use of Striked made possible by his conduct. As soon as the User becomes aware that his password has become accessible to third parties, he is obliged to change his password immediately. If this is not possible, Striked must be informed immediately.
- The aforementioned also applies to the transfer of access data to a third party. Passing on access data is generally not permitted and can lead to the blocking of the entire user account.
- Any change in the user's personal data (in particular the account data, address and e-mail address) must be reported immediately on the personal settings page.
- For the use of a Striked game, the hardware recommended by the manufacturer and the supported operating system (the information about it can be found on the corresponding Striked product page). Virtual machines are not supported.
- If Customer purchases, uses, or installs Striked games, Customer may be required to agree to additional contractual terms and conditions of the game's developer or publisher (such as the end user license agreement applicable to a particular game). If there is any inconsistency between these guidelines and this Agreement, this Agreement shall prevail.
- Customer is prohibited from modifying, merging, distributing, translating, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling, or performing any similar activity on the Striked Services without first obtaining Striked's express consent. A violation of this constitutes a breach of contract, which entitles Striked to block the customer's user account.
- Furthermore, Striked offers the possibility to exchange with other users via chats. Each user is responsible for the contributions made. Striked reserves the right to warn a user in case of infringements or serious infringements of third party rights and to block the user's account if necessary.
§ 7 Liability
- Claims of the customer for damages are excluded. Excluded from this are claims for damages by the customer arising from injury to life, limb or health or from the breach of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations) as well as liability for other damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the provider, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment is necessary to achieve the goal of the contract.
- In the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, the Provider shall only be liable for the foreseeable damage typical for the contract if such damage was caused by simple negligence, unless the Customer's claims for damages are based on injury to life, body or health.
- The restrictions of clauses 1 and 2 shall also apply in favor of the legal representatives and vicarious agents of the Provider if claims are asserted directly against them.
- The limitations of liability resulting from clauses 1 and 2 do not apply as far as Striked has fraudulently concealed the defect or has given a guarantee for the quality of the item. The same applies as far as Striked and the customer have made an agreement about the quality of the item. The regulations of the product liability law remain unaffected.
- Striked is not liable for the uninterrupted availability of the platform. Shorter interruptions due to maintenance or downtime have to be tolerated by the customer. In case of longer downtimes of the platform, Striked will inform the customer in advance.
§ 8 Third party content
- Through Striked services, the customer may receive links to third party websites or content. Striked does not guarantee their functioning, operation or additional costs incurred.
§ 9 Intellectual property
Striked services, in particular their graphics, computer codes, user interface, appearance and function, audio, video, text, layout, databases, data, as well as all other contents and all legal rights related thereto and applicable with regard to their use are the property of Striked GmbH or rights of use exist. With the exception of the cases explained in this agreement, all rights are reserved. The customer is only allowed to use or exploit Striked services or Striked content in the way explained in this agreement.
§ 10 Subject to change
- Striked reserves the right to change this agreement if necessary for legal or factual reasons. Striked will inform the customers by appropriate announcement at least 30 days before their occurrence.
- If the customer does not object to the changes before they occur, they are considered accepted. If an objection is made before the changes take effect, the customer is no longer entitled to use the services of Striked and the user account will be deactivated. Any remaining credit will be paid out to the customer's account within 30 days after the amended GTC come into effect.
§ 11 Closing provisions
- Contracts between the provider and the customers shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The statutory provisions on the limitation of the choice of law and on the applicability of mandatory provisions, in particular of the state in which the customer has his habitual residence as a consumer, shall remain unaffected.
- If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from contractual relationships between the customer and Striked GmbH is the registered office of Striked GmbH.
- The contract remains binding in its remaining parts even if individual points are legally ineffective. Instead of the ineffective points, the legal regulations, as far as they exist, take effect. As far as this would represent an unreasonable hardship for one of the contracting parties, however, the contract as a whole becomes ineffective.
Right of cancellation
You have the right to revoke this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period is fourteen days from the day of the conclusion of the contract. To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Striked GmbH, represented by Tristan Kreuziger, Planckstr. 13, 22765 Hamburg, [email protected]) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post or an e-mail).
