Is there a hidden "your soul belongs to riot games" clause hidden somewhere in there?

Of course this is going to be asked a lot but we gotta know what sort of information are you going to share?

Location only?

Anyone who doesn't want their location known is already behind a proxy anyways so I'm completely fine with that.

Arbitration is awful and you should feel bad.

I really suck at Legal Jibber-jabberish, so I'll just ask: is this affecting the use of custom skins and changing recommended items?

does this mean that for some of your contests, people from some parts of australia/Quebec/USA might be able to participate?

Quebec won't because the laws regarding contests there are amazingly draconian. Good luck finding any company willing to hold one that's valid in Quebec.

Hey Summoners,

We wanted to give you an early heads-up that we’ll be making a few changes to those massive documents of legal jibber-jabber that you agree to when you play League of Legends – the Privacy Policy, Terms of Use (TOU) and End User License Agreement (EULA). The changes will be taking effect in the next patch (scheduled for October 9th), and today we’ll outline some of the key changes you can expect to see. It’s not a lot, but if you’re interested, read on (and of course, be sure to familiarize yourself with all the changes when the complete docs are posted):

Privacy Policy

  • We’re now TRUSTe certified, which is the highest standard of privacy protection out there. You’ll see their seal on our website in the near future. You can read all about what that means at TRUSTe’s website.
  • We want to understand where new League of Legends players are coming from, so we’re gonna make use of more 3rd party cookies as well as tracking pixels, and the updated policy reflects this.
  • Riot collects data/information associated with making a payment (rather than simply passing it along to third parties). We don’t do anything with that info except charge your card when you purchase RP (thanks!). We’ve added more clear language regarding refer-a-friend, newsletters, how to change your account info, and other services Riot provides.

TOU and EULA

  • We’re the only ones who have access to personally identifiable information you provide directly to Riot.
  • Like in the privacy policy update, we collect and store payment data.
  • In the event of a dispute, you and Riot agree to binding, individual arbitration of your claims (except for in certain, limited circumstances).

I’ll check out the comments section and try to answer any burning questions.



I'm still confused by Arbitration

So, if Riot and I had a dispute, you would bring in a 3rd party to arbitrate it?
How would that work?
Also, what are these special circumstances?

an arbitration agreement just means that if you have a dispute you cannot drag them into court over it

you agree to let an impartial mediator hear the arguments of both sides and make a decision on what to do about it instead

I don't know what these special circumstances are, but these are exceptions that the agreement states you can bring riot to court over.
