Terms and Conditions

YoYoGames.com terms of use

We are sorry that we have to hassle you with all this legal stuff – honestly, we are. It’s not just that our lawyers tell us that it is really important – it is really important. A lot of time and effort has gone into making this site as good as it is and if we are going to be able to keep doing so then we need to keep control of how it is used. You probably understand this anyway but that includes making sure you understand that what you are getting here is a right to use the site and its content but with some limits. It would be great if we could just say "don't do bad stuff – but keep doing the good stuff" but apparently that isn’t enough.

So we have tried to make this as user friendly as possible and also tried to help out with a few explanations.

By the way "we" are YoYo Games Limited and its associated companies and are also referred to below as "YoYo Games".
