Download Client EULA

Version 1.2

The IndieCity Download Client is the required installer for all Products made available by IndieCity. The following terms and conditions ("Download Client EULA") apply to all use, download and installation of the IndieCity download client software and any services made available through it ("Download Client"). If you do not agree with the terms of this Download Client EULA, you should not use, download or install the Download Client nor use the related services.

IndieCity is an online marketplace and service provider for indie game developers. As such, IndieCity has not reviewed any of the content made available through IndieCity or the Download Client ("Products") and has no responsibility to do so. All Products are made available on the basis that IndieCity is not required to and does not review, nor exercise any control or judgment over them, their content nor their functionality. On the PC platform only the Download Client offers a distributed peer-to-peer (p2p) structure for Product downloads, in order to reduce hosting costs. If you are using IndieCity on a PC platform you may (but you are not obliged to) enable your computer and Internet connection to be used to host downloads to support this structure.
