Terms of Use


Last updated: 5 December 2017

Welcome to SciGround

Welcome to the SciGround mobile application (the “App”), created by SciGround Pty Ltd (“SciGround”). To make these Terms of Use easier to read, we use the word “Services” to refer to the SciGround App, as well as our website located at http://www.sciground.com. These Services are provided to you on the following Terms of Use (“Terms”).

If you are under the age of 13, please review these Terms with your parent or guardian.

If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 (the “Parent”), you are agreeing to these Terms and our Privacy Policy on behalf of yourself and your child. If you don’t agree to these Terms and our Privacy Policy, please do not use the Services.


The online protection of children and young people under the age of 18 is a shared responsibility between SciGround, the parent or guardian, and the child. SciGround aims to ensure that children and young people who engage with our Services understand the possible risks they face and how to minimise them. If you permit your child to use your device to use the Services, then you are solely responsible for deciding whether or not the Services is appropriate for your child to use.

Safe Play

During game play, please be aware of your surroundings and play safely. You agree that your use of the Services and play of the game is at your own risk. It is your responsibility to maintain any health, liability, hazard, personal injury, medical, life, and other insurance policies that you deem reasonably necessary for any injuries that you may incur while using the Services.


  • You agree that when using the Services, you will not:
  • Encourage any other user to engage in unsafe play;
  • Use the Services with any content that is unlawful, harmful, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, libellous, invasive of another’s privacy, inflammatory, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable;

  • Use the Services for a commercial purpose;
  • Interfere with the delivery of the Services;
  • Modify, test, decompile, disassemble, copy, or change the Services in anyway.


SciGround collects anonymous information about your use of the Services, such as how frequently the service is used, and what the most popular features are. This information helps SciGround make decisions about how to improve this service and other services like it. No Device ID or any private data is collected. See our Privacy Policy for more information.

Rights in App

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, SciGround grants you a limited nonexclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable license to download and install a copy of the App on a mobile device and to run the App solely for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms, you may not: (a) copy, modify, or create derivative works based on the App; (b) distribute, transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, or rent the App to any third party; (c) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the App; or (d) make the functionality of the App available to multiple users through any means. SciGround reserves all rights in and to the App not expressly granted to you under these Terms.

Expenses and Equipment

You are solely responsible for paying all expenses you may incur when you access or use the Services. This includes your internet or data service provider charges, and any excess charges to that provider if you have a limit on the amount of data you can download, together with all costs of the equipment and software you need to connect to and use the Services. SciGround is not responsible if your equipment or software is not compatible with the Services.


The Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. You understand and agree that you use the Services at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss that results from your use. SciGround does not guarantee that the Services will always be available or be uninterrupted, timely, secure or free from errors and omissions or computer viruses. SciGround disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law all guarantees, warranties or representations of merchantability, acceptable quality and fitness for any purpose, security, reliability, accuracy, timeliness, and performance of the Services. Further, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users of the Services, you release SciGround (and our officers, directors and employees) from all claims, demands, and damages in any way connected with such disputes. SciGround is not responsible for the content, availability or performance of external sites linked to or hosting the Services. Your use of any such external site will be governed by the applicable terms of use of that site.


If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of these Terms to be unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms will continue in full force and effect. If SciGround elects not to exercise or enforce any right that it has at a particular time, this does not prevent SciGround from later seeking to exercise or enforce that right. These Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New South Wales in Australia which shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes.

Changes to Terms of Use

We may need to modify these Terms from time to time. Please check this page regularly so you are aware of any updates to the Terms. Your continued use of the Services will signify your acceptance of the changes to these Terms. We may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services at any time and without notice.
