Terms and Conditions

Square Enix, Inc.
Press Site
Terms Of Use
Last Updated: October 21, 2019

Welcome to the Square Enix, Inc. (“Square Enix”) Press Site.  Access to and/or use of the Square Enix Press Site and any material contained within (collectively, the “Press Site”) is subject to these Square Enix Press Site Terms of Use (the “Terms of Use”).  If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, then you are not permitted to access or use the Press Site.

1. Press Materials
a. Assets

The Press Site hosts a variety of assets (including, but not limited to, screenshots, videos, audio recordings, images, press releases, announcements, logos, artwork, software, demos, and other materials) related to (i) the products and services of Square Enix and its corporate affiliates (collectively, the “Square Enix Group”) and (ii) the Square Enix Group generally (collectively, the “Assets”).  
b. License

If you are a member of the press, Square Enix grants you and your media organization (if applicable) a limited, non-exclusive, freely revocable license to access and use the Press Site and to view, download, reproduce, and distribute the Assets solely for the creation and distribution of media content related to the Square Enix Group or its products or services and solely pursuant to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use.  No other uses of the Press Site or Assets are permitted. 

You and your organization (if applicable) must comply with any geographical or temporal restrictions for any Assets (including, but not limited to, embargo dates) that Square Enix provides to you or your organization. 
c. Rating Agency Policies, Including Age Gating

You and your organization (if applicable) shall comply with any ESRB (or other applicable ratings agencies) policies related to the use of Assets.  For example, per the ESRB, you must age-gate all videos for M-rated games; the age gate must:
  • be age-neutral (i.e., the age gate must require the user to input his/her date of birth or select the date of birth from a drop-down bar);
  • employ reasonable technical measures to keep under-age users from re-entering their age after initially being denied access; and
  • not display any ESRB rating information on the video player or the age-gate itself.
Failure to implement ESRB or other applicable ratings agency requirements may jeopardize your future ability to obtain Assets from Square Enix and would constitute a breach of these Terms of Use.
d. Alternative Delivery of Assets

Square Enix may, from time to time, deliver Assets to you or your organization (if applicable) directly via means other than this Press Site (e.g., by email, FTP site, or other methods of delivery).  Your and/or your organization’s receipt and use of use such Assets is governed by these Terms of Use.
e. Proprietary Notices

Neither you nor your organization (if applicable) may remove or modify any trademark, copyright, or other proprietary notices contained in or appearing on the Assets. 

2. No Transferring of Log-in Information
Square Enix may, in its sole discretion, provide you with personal credentials to access to the Press Site or individual Assets.  If Square Enix issues you such credentials, you may not transfer or share your log-in information with any other person. You must keep your log-in information secure and confidential.  You accept full responsibility for all actions taken by any person using your log-in information.  You agree to promptly notify Square Enix if you believe your log-in information has been compromised or used by any person other than you.

3. Age Limit
You must be at least eighteen (18) years old to access or use the Press Site or the Assets. 

4. Term and Termination
These Terms of Use shall be effective in perpetuity unless superseded by new terms of use (which Square Enix may post at any time at its sole discretion, and which would immediately supersede these Terms of Use and become binding and effective upon their public posting) or until terminated pursuant to these Terms of Use.  

Square Enix reserves the right to manage access to the Press Site and the Assets in its sole discretion. Square Enix may at any time and for any reason or no reason terminate (i) your Press Site account, (ii) your or your organization’s access to the Press Site and/or the Assets, (iii) your or your organization’s license to use the Assets, or (iv) your or your organization’s other rights under these Terms of Use.
