10. ‘Andy & Sandy’ is working offline, too. Neither private information nor user datas will be sent to another instance or system. Solely the score for the highscore-list, plus variables like numbers of life and collected objects will be saved as an ini-file on your device, whereon the app is installed. These datas and set information will not be transfered by the app, to another instance/device. The app doesn’t work with algorithms which are under suspicion to save and/or to send private information and users behaviour or psychological constitution to other instances and/or systems (for commercial manipulation aso.). ‘Andy & Sandy’ is free of algorithms and ensures unhesitatingly and innocent joy of game play. We basically refuse all kind of commercial within our games. Because the focus is set on true playful entertainment for small and grown up children, without coercion of registration.

All websites and profiles which include links to our website and/or our products are under the full responsibility of their owner.
12. ‘Andy & Sandy’ is a game app which requires a basic fee per installation. No further costs will follow in that game. The fee is due with the confirmation of the contract between the user and the provider. After the fee is paid the app goes over into an installation sequence. The fee contains the download and installation for 1 device. The transfer of the installation package to other devices isn’t provided. The provider lists devices and detects your unit, you want to install the app, upon (for checking the compatibility). But you should update your device-software and make sure, that it has enough working memory, respectively enough assigned processing memory. Otherwise the app couldn’t work correctly or it could even crash. No refunds possible! But we are busy to provide/enlarge the list of devices as well, to ideally raise the chance of a devices compatibility, for running ‘Andy & Sandy’. Kiddybox Inc. reserves the right to change the height of the fee, at own discretion. This wouldn’t have any effect on the already installed app – version updates remain free for the already installed game app.
13. Kiddybox Inc. and its developer tested ‘Andy & Sandy’ during an alpha-test-phase, with help of several test-gamers. The app was tested on functionality, usablility, quality and content. The age limit and the height of fee were considered thoroughly as well. Despite of this, bugs can be detected and noticed by the developer and users afterwards. The bugs can negatively influent the games functionality and appearance. In spite of the test phase further bugs cannot be fully excluded. We will do our very best, to clean up such problems as fast as possible. That’s why Kiddybox Inc. is thankful for all constructive information about such problems. Kiddybox Inc. reserves the right to fix bugs and problems which appear afterwards. After each app-improvement the user with the installed app will be informed about the newest update with rising release version, for a free update of his latest installed version (see paragraph 12.). In spite of possible bugs which could appear afterwards, no refunds possible!
14. To mention a particular thing is that ‘Andy & Sandy’ (V.1.0.0 + updates (under V.2.0.0)) is a ‘pilot-game’. Kiddybox Inc. and its developer care about its improvement. But there is no obligation to realize and publish a further episode. The implementation of a further episodic sequel is depending from the success of that pilot-game version 1.0.0 (as mentioned before). The decision to realize another episode of ‘Andy & Sandy’ is depending from the numbers of the downloaded installation packs + updates. Kiddybox Inc. makes the decision by own discretion, according to the mentioned factors. No refunds possible! The fee covers the installation and the app-usage, as said before (see paragraph 12.).
15. Any attempt of transfering the installation package, the installed ‘Andy & Sandy’ game datas and temporary files on other devices is prohibited! The installation package is only available and acquirable within the online stores of the app providers, Kiddybox Inc. is in contract with. Any kind of unallowed usage and modification of graphical and auditive contents and the game code (even parts of the mentioned things) are prohibited, too! Contraventions will be prosecuted.
16. The Kiddybox Inc. points to the welfare and health of children and people with mental and physiological handicaps. In spite of the intern and extern considered age rating and innocuousnesses, conditions of upset, fear and symphtomatic reactions are possible. Therefore it is important to have an eye or being an attendant for a while, in case of the mentioned people and legitimate worries are there. Occasional flashes and light effects and recurring movements could cause epileptic seizures or temporary apathy on people with propensity to epilepsy. Exessive game play can also have negative influence to children’s attention, receptiviness, educability and normal sleep. Playing video games one our before bed time or right after the awakening could have the same negative influence on children. We recommend to let them play one hour, maximally two hours per day, with 30 minutes pause minimum, after 60 minutes of game play.
After our recommendations, we – the Kiddybox Inc. – are not responsible for possible consequences of defiance by the user. Parents or by parents chosen supervisors are responsible for appropriate and child-oriented dealings with video game apps.
