Terms of Use & Privacy Policy

  1. Terms of Use & Privacy Policy: These Terms of Use & Privacy Policy concern the use of the Alarm Wars Application (hereinafter Application) and the respective website www.alarmwars.com (hereinafter Website) which are provided and operated by Creative Web Applications Private Company, 36 Kapodistriou str., 49100, Corfu, Greece (hereinafter CWA).
    Anyone interested in using, including downloading/surfing on, the Application and/or the Website should carefully read these Terms of Use & Privacy Policy before using Alarm Wars. Persons under the age of 18 should firstly seek for parental consent before using the Application.
    These Terms of Use & Privacy Policy may be modified by CWA at any time. Notification of the respective modifications will be duly provided on www.alarmwars.com.
    By accessing and/or using the Application and/or the Website, users explicitly accept the content of these Terms of Use & Privacy Policy.
  2. Description of the Application: Alarm Wars Application is a gamification of the alarm clock. Alarm Wars Application users set the time an alarm should go off but it is their Facebook friends, that are also registered with the Application, that get to choose the sound of the alarm.
    Sound choosers (attackers) may select one of the default sounds or record their own (up to 5 seconds). CWA bears no liability on the content of the recorded sounds of the users. Users should not engage in unlawful recordings.
    Each attack is based on a bomb type that describes the attack. Each attack has a cost of Alarm Wars coins.
    Attacks cost Alarm Wars coins to the attackers and, normally, Alarm Wars energy to the recipients of the attack. If recipients are fast enough to stop (repel) the attack the moment or during it sounds, their Alarm Wars energy is unaffected. Users that are left with no energy cannot start an attack nor can they repel an attack. During nights the Alarm Wars server automatically gives away a few free Alarm Wars coins and some energy boost to all users just to spark things up.
    Users can attack their friends-users with the Insta-bomb. Insta-bombs, in contrast to all other bombs that require the recipient of the attack to explicitly set an alarm to receive the attack, set almost immediately the alarm off of the attack recipient. The option to receive Insta-bomb attacks remains with each Alarm Wars user with a simple on/off setting. Insta-bombs are designed by CWA not to override the sound muting function of the attack recipients' devices, provided this function is on. CWA bears no liability, as Insta-bomb attacks are concerned, in case the devices' sound muting function fails to operate.
    In all, Alarm Wars is all about socialising and having fun with friends in the face of the dreaded common alarm clock. Events such as the installation of the Application, award of a badge, buying bombs or coins and weekly anonymised stats are posted on users' Facebook wall. Nevertheless, in case users do not wish to have their Alarm Wars actions posted on their Facebook wall, there is a setting that disables this feature.
    All users can utilise the in-app purchase function of the Application to top-up their Alarm Wars coins in order to mount more elaborate and fun attacks. In-app purchases take place through Google Play and Google Wallet. CWA does not get any financial information/data of the users purchasing Alarm Wars coins.
    Alarm Wars comes into two options: the Free and the Pro. All users initially start with the Free version and have the option to upgrade to Pro. Users of the Pro version, in contrast to the Free, have access to more attack types, more free coins & energy every night, the ability to dispatch spies that can, usually, identify the attackers of their pending attacks as well as get more coins in each coin pack purchased through in-app purchases. On top, Pro users also earn a Pro badge.
  3. Privacy policy: In connection with the use and functionality of the Application, CWA may have access to:
