eula lol
You believe this?

Section 16. Online, subparagraph C.

"You acknowledge that you have no expectation of privacy (What?! lol) or confidentiality in any personal or other information you may intentionally or unintentionally disclose as part of the interactions associated with this software. You should avoid sharing any personally indetifiable information when playing the software or interacting online."

I played this back when it released on Steam initially, was going to play some bots today, left it installed this whole time, but when I started it this eula from **** shows up, which suggested to me it's new since I've already opened/played the game a while back. It lists the eula as belonging to THQ which we all know is out of business. Rest assured someone can apply it or it wouldn't be there. This isn't just something that applies to online interactions, note the wording, 'interactions associated with this software.' That's very broadly stated and these documents get specific when they mean to, but this isn't -the software- includes a lot. Even barely half-decent lawyers could have a field day with that. Hope they have a better eula whoever makes another Nexuiz game, if there is one, I didn't accept this one and uninstalled. I still have UT to keep me company and it's new release coming.

try xonotic, it uses the GPL and not a proprietary EULA

Game looks good. The 2 flamers were reported -you don't have to agree with someone, but the name-calling is just uncalled for. Thanks for the info.

Sorry for bumping this old thread, but what does this EULA mean? That the developers have access to everything on our PC? Or any personal info. we diclose INSIDE Nexuiz? Just want to know, because I'm thinking of re-installing.

Then you could read the whole thing for yourself, and decide for yourself.
So once again I'm posting here, because this thread is ridiculous. This is literally the same thing that you see every time you launch every multiplayer game. Don't share your personal information, be wary of online interactions; this is exactly the same. They aren't stealing your information, they aren't trying to give you up to the NSA. It is a simple warning that if you make the dumb decision to share your information to people using Nexuiz they are not liable.

Please stop fear-mongering, the community for this game is dead enough without people like you trying to scare everyone into thinking that the game is spyware.

You don't know lawyers do you lol...
My father is a lawyer, I asked him about it, and that is what he said. If you're going to start arguing that you're right based on random assumptions about the person you're arguing with, then it is pretty obvious you haven't got a clue about what proper argument and lawyering is.
Storm_at_Sea Jun 8 @ 10:02am 
Congrats on that, if even true. You really should've stopped at the first sentence because the rest is you looking for an argument making assumptions 'if you're going to this, if you're going to that' why don't you just wait to see what happens and stop trying bust on someone for something they've not even said or done- ppl like that are dime a dozen on the internet lol. If you disagree its your right same as it is mine to disagree. Why seek an argument.. can't handle that others in the world might feel different than you? What's your point, you've made it clear you don't agree -fine, now what? You incorrectly accuse me of 'fear mongering' that's laughable- you're an awfully insecure person if that's what you call it. Even the above poster before you came along asked about the eula- I answered them with read it themselves and decide for themselves- dosen't sound like fear mongering to me. Are you that personally threatened by a different opinion that you can't agree to disagree? Apparently you're the type that has more fun trolling- well- you'll have to do it without me, I'm done here.

So you can't figure out how to have a discussion about an objective something and immediately resort to acting like this is some kind of subjective opinion about the EULA. It's not, the EULA is plain and simple, not questionable, and you are acting like it is. This is causing people to think that it is unsafe to play this game. That IS fear mongering. You are frightening people into thinking they should not reinstall the game they bought ages ago because some guy on steam with a private profile and bad grammar starts pulling conspiracies out of nowhere because he doesn't understand legal documents.

I will ask you again, for the good of this game's meager existence and the comfortable sentience of the people who are reading threads about this game, PLEASE stop.

because surrendering your privacy rights to some company is completely safe. and paying for something with a license that starts with "no explicit or implied warranty". face it, even if most EULA's are similar, they are all dangerous to people's privacy and basic human rights. what the world really needs is more people to take these licenses seriously and less people demanding that everyone shrug off the risks involved in running any proprietary program on their computer, or allowing surveillance on any of their devices.
