By accessing any platform of the Yuna Network, including but not limited to, the game, forum, discord, and other platforms, you agree to the following terms of service. YunaMS, YMS, and Yuna Network are all synonymous terms and may be used interchangeably.
Title 1: Overview
We reserve the right at any time to:
- Change the terms and conditions of this agreement;
- Change the service, including terminating, eliminating, supplementing, modifying, adding to, or discontinuing any content or data on or feature of the service or the hours that the service is available;
- Change any fees or charges, if any, related to your use of the service; and
- Change the equipment, hardware, or software required to use and access the service.
Title 2: Violating Categories
We recognize that each and every different form of unlawful intention is unique due to the nature, circumstances, and/or severity of any behavior, actions, and/or interactions, which requires discretionary precaution from staff members before imposing any form of penalty or corrective actions against players.
To address this nature, we will define two violating categories of offenses:
These offenses are considered minor according to the community and server standards and could be addressed with a more lenient, temporary, and/or coaching guidance to further deter the continuance of violating any further, different, and/or same regulations, rules, and/or policy. Continued minor offenses may lead to a permanent ban from the Yuna Network.
These offenses are considered serious, unethical, immoral, requiring immediate attention, and/or gross violation and disregard for others. Those who engage in major offenses will no longer have access to any of the platforms, indefinitely.
Title 3: The Right to Appeal
Players who are banned for minor and/or major offenses are entitled to an appeal process. The burden of proof is on the player. Players must follow the guidelines for an appeal outlined HERE. Staff is required to collect sufficient evidence of wrongdoing before imposing any form of penalty against the player. YMS staff team is not required to provide evidence as it may be used by ill-intended individuals who seek to use this evidence unlawfully and/or evade these convictions. However, evidence will be provided at the discretion of the responsible staff member. YMS reserves the right to accept or deny an appeal at its discretion, considering the player's intent and behavior before, after, and during their violation. YMS may deny an appeal if it is beyond a reasonable doubt that the player has violated such regulation, close an appeal if the incorrect form is used, and close an appeal if the suspected violator does not provide any relevant information and evidence to sustain their case against YMS.
Title 4: Suspended Users' Rights
Individuals who are temporarily blocked from accessing YMS have the right to play on another account while their account serves the remaining time of their ban. Players who continue to violate our policy during and after their temporary suspension will be permanently blocked from accessing YMS indefinitely.
Title 5: Staff Accountability
Staff members are expected to act with professionalism and courtesy. Staff members are held to a higher standard compared as they possess in-game power which gives them the ability to suspend, terminate, or reverse any progress a normal player has. YMS prohibits any form of abuse from staff members. If you find any staff members, administrators included, violating any policies that display any form of favoritism, exclusion, or benefiting themselves and their associates, you may file a report HERE. Administrators will not tolerate any form of malmanagement, abuse, harassment, or any other related response from staff members.
Title 6: Privacy & Data Policy
By playing YMS, you agree to share your data (IP address, volume ID, MAC ID, etc) to access any of our platforms. YMS reserve the right to collect, use, maintain, and/or remove your data for any reason, at any time. YMS takes your privacy seriously and has implemented various encryption protocols to ensure your data is secured. YMS does NOT share data with ANY third party.
Title 7: Extended Anti-Harassment Policy
Harassment is defined as any repeated or continuing unsolicited contact that serves no useful purpose beyond creating alarm, annoyance, and/or emotional distress. Our policy is based on both intent and outcome: if someone intentionally bothers you and continues to do so even after being requested to cease such behavior, then the violating party will be punished accordingly. This includes, but is not limited to, spamming, stalking, cyberstalking, doxing, annoying, flaming, using offensive language, and similar offenses. YMS has an obligation to protect all players from any form of attack against another individual or a group on the basis of race, sex, gender, creed, religion, political views, and so forth. This policy also extends to all aspects of all platforms on the Yuna Network. Players found breaking this rule will receive disciplinary action based on the user's behavior during, currently, and after the action is applied, dependent on the staff member that handles these scenarios.
Title 8: In-Game Assistance Policy
Staff members will assist players in any and all situations as long as it is determined that the issue was related to the system failing. This does not apply to mistakes made by the player, as this would provide an unfair advantage to any other user who has made a mistake. Accidentally losing and/or using certain items, entering boss maps, buying and selling incorrect items to NPCs/Cash Shop/Stores/etc, and similar circumstances are not covered by this policy as this is deemed player-initiated.
Title 9: Evidence Policy / Reporting a Player
You may anonymously report a player or staff member HERE. You will not have access to view threads in this section, to keep the anonymity of other posts. We ask that you keep your report authentic, meaning the evidence in your report should be raw, unedited, and uncropped for your submissions. Any form of modifications or fabrications is not permissible under Title 3, Part V.
