In which the user must agree to these terms in order to continue entering the World of Ascension.

‘Servers’ are the online environments that support our service, which includes the logon server, asset server, authentication server, and map server.
‘User Content’ which means content created, uploaded and/or published, or submitted through our servers or Website. Which Terion Entertainment WILL NOT claim they own at ANYTIME.
2. Our Service/Services will exist for as long as we maintain them.
3. Terion Entertainment is only a service provider we do not protect you from third parties unless we deem there is abuse going on within the virtual world. Moreover meaning: A creator may be overpricing created content; a landlord is overcharging on a parcel of land or a sim. They can only charge a percentage for profit on land, but depends on the size of a parcel or sim. If a user feels that they are being overcharged then they must let the management of Terion Entertainment know and we will do an investigation.
4. Terion Entertainment will not or ever have monopolies running within the World of Ascension. Monopolies are deemed illegal by the United States Government, therefore deemed illegal by Terion Entertainment as well.
5. Creators and Builders also agree when they create and/or build content and/or bring content into the grid there WILL not be sexism involved, for example, more female content available over male content or vice versa. Terion Entertainment will be equal in any way as possible. Any violation of this term the violator will receive a warning, if they do not comply after the warning, they will be banned temporarily but a 3rd time their account will be banned permanently, their content will be permanently deleted from the grid.
6. Terion Entertainment only offers its service to Adult’s 18 and older within World of Ascension. Anyone younger than 18 and we find out they will find themselves permanently banned.
7. “Adult Regions” There seems to be a lot of controversy when it comes to child avatars on Adult Regions. Let’s clear this up a bit now and so forth and what Terion Entertainment will allow and not allow. Child Avatar’s WILL be allowed on Adult Regions, anyone who violates their right will be subject to a sanction. But Child Avatar’s will not be permitted on Gorean sims.
8. “Vivox Voice” We use the voice service Vivox so people may use voice whenever it suits them. But since we aren’t licensed to have our own ToS concerning the voice server you the user accepts full responsibility if you violate their terms of service.
9. “Maintenance” The World of Ascension will go under maintenance at scheduled and unscheduled times but users will be notified beforehand and a message will be sent out into the grid that the grid will be shutting down for maintenance, but if we need to engage in emergency maintenance in which doesn’t give us time to notify our users the grid will be shut down asap.
10. “VarRegions, Full Regions & Homestead Regions” We will maintain these regions since they will exist on our servers.
11. “Gorean RP” Will be allowed within the World of Ascension but only on Private Sims that must be purchased. Verbal RP will be allowed outside of the Private Regions but as long as it remains appropriate around child avatars.
12. “Adult Region Rating” The Adult region rating is reserved for Adult Avatar region owners. The reason for this is we don’t want people to get the wrong impression and assume things. Child Avatars can only use the General and Moderate ratings. Child Avatars using the Adult rating on their regions will receive 2 warnings if the rating hasn’t changed. If the region rating still hasn’t changed after the 2 warnings the account will be banned and region ownership will be suspended indefinitely.
13. “Gloebit” The third-party money module installed on the grid. We do not offer support for the money module, but if there is any abuse or fraud going on we will conduct an investigation with the creator.
The user agrees and respects the Intellectual Property Rights of other users, Terion Entertainment, and third parties.
1. We no longer allow any user to upload content that they did not make regardless if they have permission or not. This causes too much controversy and people assume that it’s copy botting. Therefore we have decided not to allow it.
2. “Content of Creators and Builders” The World of Ascension at this point nor in the future will assume any rights to the content of Creators and Builders. Employees of the Terion Entertainment WILL have to purchase from the creator or builder before using such content. Creations are solely owned by the content creator. But if there is a legitimate situation where either the content is broken or not to the purchaser’s satisfaction then a refund MUST be made. BUT if this happens on more than one occasion an investigation will take place and if there is a violation in the World of Ascension’s ToS. Unless we find abuse with the content creator then the result could be a termination of their account.
3. “Real Estate” If for any reason a tenant is not satisfied with a parcel of land or a sim they’re renting from a parcel owner, a proper investigation must be made by the parcel owner. And since the sims are pre-paid, the estate owner or employees in the Real Estate company is not obligated to issue a refund for non-use of the parcel or sim.
1. Griefer’s are not allowed with the virtual world of the World of Ascension. If we find any within the virtual world they will be subject to an investigation and possible permanent ban. Any repeaters will be subjected to a hardware ban. NO EXCEPTIONS.

But this will be changed at some point in the future where they will be all one account. And the user must provide their legal name upon registration, failing to do so will result in permanent ban, repeated they will be hardware banned. By applicable law in the United States the user is required to use their real names and not fake names when registering for an account in a Virtual World. Within the United State the World of Ascension is classified as an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) but we classify this a social networking platform. 2.
