NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER APPLICABLE TO MACHINATION BADGES, REPORTS AND INFORMATION
THIS NOTICE IS ADDRESSED TO ANY PERSON ACCESSING THE MACHINATIONS INFORMATION OR THE MACHINATIONS BADGES OR REPORTS
MACHINATIONS, AND ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES, PERSONNEL, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS (“MACHINATIONS”) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY KIND OF DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGE OR LOSS WHATSOEVER WHICH YOU MAY SUFFER IN CONNECTION WITH ACCESSING THE WEBSITE AT HTTPS://MACHINATIONS.IO (“WEBSITE”) OR ANY OF THE INFORMATION, SERVICES, CONTENT, OPINIONS, REPORTS, BADGES, AND THE LIKE INCLUDED ON THE WEBSITE OR ON ANY OTHER WEBSITES OR MATERIALS PUBLISHED BY MACHINATIONS OR BY THIRD PARTIES.
Machinations has developed a tool which helps game and platform developers to prototype, model, simulate, forecast and balance the interactions between users and their environment. Machinations offers a way to test third party game economies based on certain simulations before launch, and in some cases, tools and/or services to monitor, predict and alert on economies trends after launch.
Sometimes, third-party developers or owners of products, items, software, content or assets (whether digital or otherwise) (the “Products”) are allowed to display the “Verified by Machinations” badge, which means they have taken the time to map out and model the economy of their platform or game using our tools, and to simulate how those economies will work once the platform is live based on certain set of information, data and assumptions, all of which may have been subject to change. As for those displaying the badge “Under review by Machinations”, it means they have not completed the mapping and modelling process.
Based on contracts between these third-party developers or owners of Products, Machinations may provide to them certain mapping, simulation and/or monitoring services in relation to their game economy (the “Services”). The Services may result in the issuance of report(s) including findings and predictions related to the Products’ economy (the “Report(s)”).
