Terms of Service
Flightsim.to essentially provides a free service that allows users to upload, promote and showcase content that other users can download, view, comment, interact with or follow. You agree to use the Website and Services only for purposes permitted by these Terms of Service as well as any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions.
Account Suspension and Termination
(3) You may not use anyone else's account at any time and you may not allow anyone else to use your account at any time. You are responsible for all activity occurring under your account, including all activities or transactions conducted through the use of your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account username and password, and agree not to disclose your username and password to anyone. You agree not to transfer, resell, or otherwise convey your account or the right to use your account to anyone. You agree that this Site will not be liable for any loss you may incur as a result of someone else using your account, either with or without your knowledge. If you have reason to believe that your Account is no longer secure, you must: (i) promptly change your password; and (ii) immediately notify us of the problem through our contact page.
(3.1) Number 3 does not apply if the unauthorised access to your account was caused by an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty on the part of the Site and if it can be excluded that you are substantially at fault.
(4) Certain aspects of the Site may allow you to submit or post a variety of content to the Site, such as text, images, files, videos, and other content, either directly to the Service or through a Third Party Service (collectively, "User Content"). Please be aware that User Content is not confidential and may be accessible by other users and the public.
(4.1) If you choose to upload User Content, you must not submit to the Service any User Content that does not comply with this Agreement or the law. For example, the User Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so (including by way of any available exceptions or limitations to copyright or related rights provided for in European Union law). You are legally responsible for the User Content you submit to the Service. We may use automated systems that analyze your User Content to help detect infringement and abuse, such as spam, malware, and illegal content.
(4.2) You retain all of your ownership rights in your User Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to the Platform and other users of the Service, as described below.
(4.3) By submitting or posting User Content to the Service (either directly or through a Third Party Service) you grant this Site a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable, assignable, unrestricted, worldwide license to use the User Content, together with all consents or waivers (if any) necessary to distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, transmit, communicate to the public and modify the User Content, by any means and in all media formats and channels now known or hereafter devised in perpetuity, and to advertise and promote such use, without further notice to, or permission from, you or any other person, and without compensation or reference to you or any other person.
(4.4) By providing User Content to the Service, you grant to the Platform a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use that User Content (including to host, to make publicly available, reproduce, distribute, modify, display and perform it, taking into account the moral rights) for the sole purpose of operating, and improving the Service (including through the use of third-party service providers), and only to the extent necessary therefore.
(4.5) You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to access your User Content through the Service, and to use that User Content (including to reproduce, distribute, modify, display, and perform it, taking into account the moral rights) only to the extent necessary therefore and as enabled by a feature of the Service.
(4.6) The licences granted by you continue until the User Content is removed as described below. Once removed, the licences will terminate, except where you permitted the further use of User Content after your removal, or the law requires otherwise. For example, removal of User Content by you does not require the Platform to: (a) recall User Content that is being used by other users within any limited offline viewing functionality of the Service; or (b) delete copies we reasonably need to keep for legal purposes.
(4.7) You grant to the Platform the right to monetize your User Content on the Service (and such monetization may include displaying ads on or within User Content). This Agreement does not entitle you to any payments.
(4.8) The right granted does not entitle the Site to bill other users for your User Content against payment, for example through sale or sublicensing against payment, without the prior consent of the User.
(4.9) This licence ends when you delete or terminate your User Content or account, unless your content has been shared with other users and they have not deleted the content. When you delete User Content, it is removed in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. You should be aware that removed content will persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time, which are not accessible to others.
(4.10) Please retain copies of all your User Content as this Site is under no obligation to store or return any User Content to you. You are solely responsible for your User Content. This Site only acts as a passive conduit for User Content, and will not be liable for any use, disclosure, or exposure of any User Content, including possibly objectionable or offensive User Content, to you, any other user, or any third party. Flightsim.to is under no obligation to monitor User Content or use of the Site. However, this Site has the right to monitor or moderate User Content, in our sole discretion, and to enforce our or a third party’s intellectual property rights in any User Content. Flightsim.to reserves the right to discard or remove User Content from the Site in its sole discretion and without any liability.
(4.11) You represent and warrant the following as to your User Content: Your User Content does not infringe, violate, or misappropriate any third-party intellectual property rights, including copyrights or trademarks. Your User Content, as used in connection with the Site, will not violate any applicable laws or regulations or infringe or violate any rights of a third party. You will indemnify Flightsim.to on first demand against all claims that your User Content is unlawful and you will be fully liable for all costs and damages incurred by Flightsim.to as a result of your unlawful content.
(4.12) The community guidelines listed here are also part of these Terms of Service. Violations of the guidelines are treated similarly to violations of our Terms of Service.
(4.13) The Site reserves the right, solely upon its own discretion, to refuse, remove, or disable access to User Content that the Site learns may be illegal or may violate the terms of these Terms of Service, although it has no obligation to do so. Flightsim.to's action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of these Terms of Service by any user (or any other third party) does not waive Flightsim.to's right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct, or potential Terms of Service violation.
(4.14) You are solely responsible for your access to, use of and/or reliance on any User Content. You must conduct any necessary, appropriate, prudent or judicious investigation, inquiry, research, and due diligence with respect to any User Content. It is your responsibility to investigate the licensing of any User Content prior to using such User Content in any way and to ensure that your use of any such User Content complies with all applicable laws, licensing requirements and does not infringe third parties' proprietary rights. You are also responsible for any content that you post or transmit as well as all content posted or transmitted through or by use of your User Account.
Disclaimer of Warranties
(6) Your use of the Site is at your own risk, and the Site is provided "as is" without warranties of any kind, either express or implied. Flightsim.to does not warrant that the service will be available, uninterrupted, secure, or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the service or the servers that make the service available are free of viruses or other harmful components. This Site does not accept any liability for any loss or damage arising from your use of the Site.
Limitation of Liability
(8) The Site is not liable for any damages incurred through the use of its services, including that which may be associated with the user-submitted content. You agree that any use of user-submitted content or modifications made to your property is done at your own risk. By submitting content to our services, you accept full responsibility for and absolve the Site of any liabilities associated with your submitted content, including any potential damages it may incur to anyone's property or well-being, directly or indirectly.
(8.1) The Platform assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness and completeness of the information provided on the Website. Liability claims against the Platform relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, unless the Platform can be shown to have acted willfully or grossly negligent Is at fault. All offers are non-binding. The Platform expressly reserves the right to change, add to, or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer or to cease publication temporarily or permanently without prior notice.
(8.1a) In no case shall the Site, the directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents, contractors, interns, suppliers, service providers or licensors be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the service or any products procured using the service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the service or any product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content (or product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
(8.2) The Platform shall be liable exclusively as follows: We shall be liable without limitation in accordance with the statutory provisions (i) for damages arising from injury to life, body or health; (ii) in the event of intent; (iii) in the event of gross negligence; and (iv) in accordance with the German Product Liability Act. Without limiting the foregoing, we shall only be liable for ordinary negligence in the event of a breach of a "material" obligation under this Agreement. "Material" obligations in this sense are obligations which are necessary for the performance of the contract, the breach of which would jeopardise the achievement of the purpose of the contract, and compliance with which you may therefore regularly rely on. In these cases, liability is limited to typical and foreseeable damages; in other cases, there is no liability for slight negligence.
(9) By creating a account, you acknowledge that we may send email to the address associated with your account with important information regarding your account, as well as our services and policies. However, you are free to opt-out from emails that do not contain important information regarding your account or our service by letting us know that you no longer wish to receive such emails.
Terms For Purchasable Content
(10) This Website allows you to purchase and download digital content such as files, software programmes, applications, application extensions, software add-ons, gaming contents, video games, video game extensions, DLCs or similar content in its Store (collectively, "Products"). All Products are solely delivered in a digital, downloadable format and not shipped. All Products are solely for use on PC (Windows) and will not work on other platforms, such as Mac OS, Xbox or Linux distributions. Through the Store, you can browse and access Product pages and order these Products and their related content. The party that provides a Product to us for distribution is the "Publisher" of the Product. Most of the Products we make available through the Store are licensed to you by third-party Publishers. We may make some Products available via the Store at no charge and others for a price. From time to time, we may offer sales, give-aways and other promotions in the Store. We may modify or discontinue any of those promotions at any time without notice to you.
(10.1) All Product pages and descriptions displayed on the Store do not constitute a binding offer on the part of the Platform, but are merely a description and invitation which allow the User to submit a binding offer to purchase the described Product. It is our sole discretion at what price we display a Product to a User, and whether we display it at all.
(10.2) Upon receiving your offer to purchase a product listed on the Site, we will immediately undertake digital efforts to acquire a distribution copy from the Publisher. Upon successful resale of such copy to you, we will deliver the distribution copy in a digital format to be downloaded from your User account. There is no guarantee that all Products listed on the Site will be available, and you understand that in some cases we may or must decline an offer if we are unable to obtain a copy of the ordered product from the Publisher in a timely manner.
(10.3) Products can be sold to you by authorized resellers. In these cases, you are purchasing the Product from a third-party vendor or reseller, which is reselling the Product to you ("Vendor"), while we solely act as a supplier, providing access to your ordered Products upon successful purchase. If you click on the "Buy now" or "Order" button on a Product's page, the Store will redirect you to the Vendors sales transaction website or form where you can complete the purchase. The Site is not party of any purchase agreement between the Vendor and you as a buyer.
(10.4) FastSpring® is a reseller of our services and vendor authorized by Flightsim.to.
(10.5) As soon as the Vendor notifies us via technical interface that the order has been placed and the payment for the order has been received in full, the Platform will provide you with the download of the ordered Products. Products will not be delivered until payment has been received in full and the Vendor reported the receipt of your payment to the Platform. You may download and access the purchased Product for your personal, non-commercial use and it is not allowed to share these Products with others or to share your access to these Products.
(10.6) You are responsible for ensuring before purchase that your device meets any minimum system requirements, including any requirement that we make available on the Product detail and showcase pages. For some Products, you will be required to input a license key we make available in order to install or activate the Product. You are responsible for any internet or other connection charges you may incur in connection with your download, access, and use of the Store and any Products, including any free trial versions.
(10.7) You understand that any obligation arising from the purchase contract is satisfied with the provision of the Products and, in particular, there is no right to free updates or future versions of the purchased Product.
(10.8) All Sales Final; Accessing and Risk of Loss. All purchases are final. We do not accept returns of Products unless indicated otherwise on the Products page or where required by law. Once you purchase a Product and we or the Publisher make the Product available to you, you are responsible for downloading and confirming your ability to access Products, including retrieving the license key for the Product if applicable, and bear all risk of loss after downloading the Product or retrieving the license key, including any loss due to a computer or hard drive malfunction. If you are unable to complete a download or access a Product, please contact the Site's customer service for assistance. We will usually continue making Products you have purchased available to you in your Site's account so that you can download additional copies of the Product and retrieve your license key (if applicable), but that is not always the case, and we may limit or disable further downloads of a Product due to licensing restrictions or for other reasons. The permanent provision of backup files, downloadable files, receipts and Product license keys in your account is a free service of Flightsim.to. There is no legal claim to this service, which can be discontinued at any time after delivery of the purchased Product. The customer is responsible for saving the delivered Product keys and / or downloaded files for future use.
(10.9) Separate Licenses to Use Products. Your use of a Product will be governed by the terms and conditions of an end user license agreement between you and the Publisher or other licensor of the Product (a "EULA"). If applicable, we will inform you about the EULA prior to purchase on the Products page. The Publisher or other licensor has the right to enforce the EULA against you. If you choose not to accept a EULA for a Product, you must not use that Product. Flightsim.to's Terms of Service do not amend or supersede any license or other agreement between you and the Publisher of a Product. Flightsim.to is not a party to the EULA for any Product. If you do not accept the Publisher's End User License Agreement, the Platform is not obliged to make Products available to you and you are not entitled to download or use the Products.
(10.9.1) If you receive a Product that is not accompanied by a EULA, then Publisher grants to you only a limited license to download, access and use the Product for personal purposes, and reserves all other rights, and you are not allowed to copy, modify, create a derivative work of, reverse engineer, reverse assemble, sell, assign, sublicense, distribute, rent, lease, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer any right in the Product; you agree that your license is limited, personal, single-user, non-transferable, non-commercial, and non-exclusive.

Publishers or other licensors own the title, copyright and other intellectual property rights in the Products, and the Products are licensed, not sold.
(10.9.2) If we make Products available to you to use, access or download, you are solely entitled and allowed to download and access these Products for private, non-commercial purposes, and you are not authorized to distribute or reproduce the Products in any way.

The Platform's customer support is limited to assistance with the use of the Platform, including websites, shopping carts, and order pages, and providing access to and/or delivery of Products. Flightsim.to is neither entitled nor obliged to provide warranty, maintenance, or other support services for the Product to the End Customer. All requests for such warranty, maintenance, or support services shall be forwarded to the Publisher in a timely manner. For this purpose, the Site will make best efforts to ensure that the End Customer can contact the Publisher of the Product to gain support.

To exercise your statutory right of withdrawal, please refer to the Vendor from which you have purchased the Product, as shown on the invoice and order confirmation you received by e-mail. If you purchased the Product from a third-party vendor, the Site is not a party of the purchase between you and the Vendor.
