4.1 4Players offers gameserver hosting services. 4Players provides the user with game servers on the Internet. The user pays a fee for the provision of hosting services. This is independent of the use of the service. The prices applicable shall be the current prices at the time of the order, which can be viewed at http://gameserver.4players.de. 4Players reserves the right to expand, change or improve the services provided. In particular, 4Players shall be entitled at any time to improve or change the selection or the respective version of the games, modifications or additional tools (AdminTools) or the operating system on which the service is based in line with technical progress. The scope of the games provided shall be limited by the availability of any advance services (e.g. licenses from the game manufacturers). Therefore, the user has no claim to the provision of specific games or versions of games, modifications, additional tools or operating systems.
4.3 The user has access to his own FTP area, which may be used exclusively for the administration of the virtual server. It is not permitted to use the FTP area to exchange files with third parties, to back up data or for any other use that is not directly related to the administration of the virtual server. 4Players reserves the right to stop any misuse immediately, delete data on the FTP area at its own discretion and report any misuse. 4Players shall provide a separate logfile FTP area for the user to download logfiles, but shall not guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the content of logfiles created by the virtual servers at any time. 4Players shall not be held responsible for any misuse of a rented virtual server by third parties, nor for any resulting damage or consequential damage. This applies in particular to the “takeover” or hacking of the voice communication servers or disruptive, abusive or illegal actions while playing on the game servers.
4.5 4Players guarantees an annual average availability of the virtual servers of 98%. This does not include times when the server is not available due to technical or other problems that are beyond 4Players’ control (force majeure, third party fault, etc.).
