On OnLive Game Prices

Now that OnLive is live, details have emerged on Eurogamer.net outlining how much games will cost on the service, in addition to OnLive fees (which are not being charged yet). They show Brain Challenge for $4.99, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin for $19.99, Just Cause 2 for $49.99, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for $59.99. Those are all pretty much in line for the prices for those games at retail, except in this case you will need to maintain your OnLive subscription to keep playing these games, and even then, access to these titles is only certain for the next three years, as they all carry a "rental duration" which reads: "Until at least 17th June 2013."

You may close your Account at any time, however, OnLive may close an Account if the Account is suspended and not resumed within the twelve (12) month maximum suspension period, as detailed in the “Suspending Your Account” section, above, or under certain conditions specified in the Terms of Service. Closing your Account will immediately and permanently terminate your access to the Service using the closed Account; immediately and permanently terminate your access to all content, messages, services on the Service that the closed Account would otherwise have access to or could derive value from; and result in your immediate and permanent forfeiture of any coupons, access passes, credits, or anything that may be of value directly or indirectly associated with the Account, if any, whether purchased or not. Any remaining payments due on the Account will remain due and collectable after the Account is closed until they are repaid. If you decide to close your Account, please contact OnLive Customer Service from the Support section of the OnLive website. Within six (6) months after closing your Account or after any payments due on the Account are paid, whichever is later, we will delete all Personal Information other than (a) login-related information, such as your Player Tag, password, and email address, and (b) financial records as required for accounting, revenue-reporting and tax-reporting purposes. We will retain your Personal Information for up to six months or until fees due are repaid after closing your Account to provide a means to restore the Account in the event of an erroneous closure, to mitigate potential Account misconduct and to facilitate collection of any payments due. We will retain transaction-related information as required by law, to meet the requirements of our corporate accounting practices or as required to fulfill our obligations to our content and service providers and licensors. Please note that even after you remove information from your Account or delete your Account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent such information has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed, or it was copied or stored by other users.

OnLive does not delete login-related information, such as your Player Tag, password, or email address. We keep this information in order to prevent fraudulent conduct under your Account and to enable us to adhere to your requests either to send or not to send marketing-related communications to you.

If you engage in any repeated or objectionable misconduct, to be determined within OnLive’s sole discretion, OnLive reserves the right to either suspend or close your Account, in OnLive’s sole discretion, immediately and without notice as set forth in the “Suspending Your Account” and “Closing Your Account” sections herein. Refer to the OnLive Community Guidelines for examples of objectionable conduct.

The Terms will continue to apply to you in full from the time you accept the Terms, as set forth in the “Accepting and Changing the Terms” section herein, until your Account is closed by either you or OnLive.

Survival

Sections 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23 of the Terms shall survive any expiration or termination of the Terms, or your Account. The Privacy Policy will survive termination of the Terms, or your Account in accordance with its terms.

15. Disputes

You agree to handle any disputes between you and OnLive in accordance with the policy outlined below, the OnLive Privacy Policy or as otherwise agreed in writing between you and OnLive. As an alternative to litigation, we will consider reasonable requests to resolve any dispute through dispute resolution procedures such as arbitration or mediation.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

The Terms shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. Any action or proceeding brought to adjudicate any dispute related to the Terms, OnLive Privacy Policy, OnLive Community Guidelines, or the Service shall be brought in the County of Santa Clara, California (if under State law) or the Northern District of California (if under Federal law), except as otherwise agreed by the parties in writing.

Arbitration

OnLive will make a confidential binding arbitration option available for any claim (excepting injunctive relief and specific performance) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000. Any such arbitration shall take place before an arbitrator from the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service (“JAMS”) as mutually agreed upon by you and OnLive and shall proceed in accordance with the then current rules and procedures of JAMS mutually agreed upon by you and OnLive in writing. The arbitration shall take place in Palo Alto, California.
16. Injunctive Relief

If you breach or indicate your intention to breach the Terms (including, without limitation, in a manner that infringes, misappropriates or violates any intellectual property or privacy rights or may cause irreparable or continuing harm), OnLive may seek injunctive relief against you, or any other appropriate relief.
17. Representations and Warranties

You represent and warrant that (i) you have the full power and authority to enter and perform under the Terms, (ii) the execution and performance of your obligations under the Terms does not constitute a breach of or conflict with any other agreement or arrangement by which you are bound, and (iii) the Terms are a legal, valid, and binding obligation of you, enforceable in accordance with its terms and conditions.
18. Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold OnLive, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, affiliates, suppliers, and licensors (collectively “OnLive Indemnified Parties”) harmless from any liability, damage, settlement, loss, or expense (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred in connection with any third-party claim, demand or action (“Claim”) brought or made against any of the OnLive Indemnified Parties arising out of or relating to (a) any violation by you of any of the Terms, (b) any act or omission by or on behalf of you or arising out of your use of the Service, (c) any unauthorized modification or alteration of any hardware or software made available to you in connection with the Service and/or (d) any information, content or materials (including, without limitation, any Feedback (as defined below) or UGC) provided or made available by you. If you have to indemnify any of the OnLive Indemnified Parties under this Section 17, OnLive and/or the relevant OnLive Indemnified Parties will have the right to control the defense, settlement, and resolution of any Claim at your sole expense. You may not settle or otherwise resolve any Claim without OnLive’s prior express written permission.
