Our player community is always evolving, so it's important that You periodically check here (as well as the rules and instructions in Your favorite game areas) for updates and new information. WAJAS may update or revise the Terms and Conditions at any time. If we revise the Terms and Conditions, such revision shall be effective thirty (30) days after posting the new Terms and Conditions on the WAJAS website. You agree to review the Terms and Conditions periodically to become aware of such revisions. You can view the Terms and Conditions at any time by clicking on the Terms and Conditions link at the bottom of our home page. We may provide notice of changes to these Terms and Conditions, but we are not required to do so. It is Your responsibility to review the Terms and Conditions and abide by these conditions of use of the Wajas site.
If You violate our Terms and Conditions, in our sole discretion we may issue You a warning about the violation, or we may choose to freeze or to terminate any and all Accounts that You have established immediately and without prior notice. You agree that WAJAS is not required to provide You with notice before freezing or terminating Your Account. In no event will any refund be available. Occasionally, if after our investigation Your frozen Account is terminated, we will permit reinstatement on the condition that the Account holder adhere to these Terms and Conditions, but Wajas is not required to do so.
The Terms and Conditions and any posted rules or instructions regarding a particular game or activity, constitutes the entire agreement between You and WAJAS regarding Your rights and obligations in Your use of WAJAS. If there is any conflict between the Terms and Conditions and any other rules or instructions posted on WAJAS , WAJAS will resolve the conflict in its sole discretion. If You have questions about the Terms and Conditions, please contact us.
You may not provide false information during the registration process. You must provide truthful and accurate information in creating Your WAJAS Account.
You may not use a login name that is used by someone else, and neither Your nickname nor Your login name may be vulgar, infringe on the identity or intellectual property rights of a third party, otherwise be offensive, or be used in any way that violates the Terms and Conditions.
You are solely responsible for all activity on Your Account and for the security of Your computer system or video console system. You may not reveal Your password to other users. If You forget Your password, You must email us confirming Your Account email and login. We will email You a new password which You can change when You login.

ACCOUNT TERMINATION: IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS TERMINATED, YOU WILL LOSE ALL WAJAS AND WAJAS MATERIALS WHETHER YOU PAID FOR THEM OR ACQUIRED THEM THROUGH GAMES. YOUR ACCOUNT ID WILL BE REPOSSESSED AND MAY BE TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER PLAYER IN THE DISCRETION OF WAJAS.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ACCOUNT RULES: When permitted by the particular game, You may maintain a maximum of two Accounts in which to play games, swap Wajas and store items.
However, if a contest or game states, “one Account only,” or it is obvious from the nature of the game that maintaining more than one Account for that game would give You an unfair advantage over other players, You may NOT use an additional Account to acquire prizes or other site benefits. You also may not hoard Accounts to "sell" or "auction" Accounts to other users. Suspicious activity in what otherwise appear to be unrelated Accounts that is traced back to You will result in immediate termination of all the suspect Accounts.
By way of example, for purposes of the MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ACCOUNT RULES, an “Account” is any Account maintained by You under any user name and/or Accounts paid through the same PayPal Account or Accounts maintained by related individuals and individuals sharing the same household, including parent/child, partner/spouse, grandparent/grandchild, roommates, friends and the like. You may not use Your spouse, partner, friend or roommate to attempt to accrue prizes and benefits through use of an Account actually under Your control or direction. Any violation of the MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ACCOUNT RULES subjects You to immediate freezing and/or termination of all suspect Accounts without prior notice and without refund. All Wajas and Wajas materials, whether You paid for them or acquired them playing Wajas, will be forfeited.

Maybe get a new server, clean files up or something? Thanks!” Bad post: “The site is so slow! You guys are useless, stupid people! I hate You! And by the way, I hear that ____________ is a junkie.”

No user “gets a free pass” on violating these Terms and Conditions because of his/her status, length of time playing the game or previous purchases. All Wajas and items on terminated Accounts will be reclaimed by us and redistributed among other players or forfeited to us in our discretion. Furthermore, Your ID may be repossessed and assigned to another player in Wajas sole discretion.
Respect Your fellow players. Wajas likes honesty and players who want to play a great game in a fun, artistic community. So be honest, be kind, have fun, don’t hack, don’t steal, don’t scam and You’ll be perfect for our community.
