This Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is hereby entered into between any legal entity or individual who pays for the Exclusive Puzzle Service (“Customer”) and the I’m a Puzzle website (“Provider”) legally represented by its sole owner Bruno Marotta.
The Provider provides online puzzle video games available through its website under the URL address “https://im-a-puzzle.com/” (“Website”).
The Provider agrees to provide the Customer a separate section (“Exclusive Puzzle Section or Section”) inside the Website as described in this Agreement.
During the Term of this Agreement, links to puzzle games (“Puzzle Link”) created by the Customer will be redirected to the Customer’s Section. The puzzle games can be played by any person with access to the Internet via a Compatible Web Browser who receives the Puzzle Link.
The service is composed of two phases: the Setup Phase and the Gaming Phase.
In the Setup Phase, the Provider sets up a separate Section in the Website for hosting the Exclusive Puzzle games.
First the Provider requests from the Customer several information needed to setup the Section (e.g.: page title, logo images, and e-mail addresses). One or more e-mail addresses are needed to grant access to the Customer’s Account. The e-mail addresses must all be linked to either a Google Account or Facebook Account.
Once all information is provided by the Customer, the provider sets up the Section. The Section setup can take up 5 business days after all information is received. The Provider informs to the Customer the completion of the Setup Phase via e-mail.
During the Gaming Phase, the Customer can create and share puzzle games to be played in its Section.
The creation of an Exclusive Puzzle game is done using one of the e-mail addresses registered during the Setup Phase. At the end of the creation process, the Customer receives an unique Puzzle Link to distribute to its audience.
Exclusive Puzzle differs from the other Website’s puzzle games by following features:
- The game play and game over pages are rebranded with the Customer’s name and logo.
- No advertisement, partner banners, or links are displayed neither before the game start (loading page) nor when the game ends (game over page).
- All the game helpers are disabled (e.g.: display the picture preview, display a translucent picture on the game board, automatically solve the entire puzzle of parts of it, display numbers indicating the placement of the pieces, etc.).
- Embedding the games in a third-party website via the iframe HTML tag is allowed.
- The Home button in the game play and game over pages redirects the player to an URL specified by the Customer. If no URL is specified, the Home button is hidden.
- At the end of the game, no game suggestions is shown to the player.
The Provider might still display advertisements on all the other pages and sections of the Website. Therefore, if an Exclusive Puzzle player decides to enter the main page of the Website and play other games, he/she will see third-party advertisements and this doesn’t constitute an infringement of this Agreement.
Online Sharing through Third Party Services
The Customer might share the Exclusive Puzzle through third party websites, blogs, or social media (“Third Party Services”). When sharing the Exclusive Puzzle through Third Party Services the Customer shall continue to comply with all provisions of this Agreement.
It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to check and comply with the terms of services from the Third Party Services and to the laws and regulations applicable to the usage and sharing of the Exclusive Puzzle.

The Provider is entitled to upgrade or update the Website, carry out maintenance work, and troubleshooting measures at any time, as long as the essential functionalities of the Exclusive Puzzle and its availability are not affected.
The Exclusive Puzzle shall only be deemed as unavailable if (i) essential functions cannot be used and (ii) this cannot be attributed to (a) troubleshooting measures, (b) faults or failures caused by third-party providers such as Internet Hosting providers or (c) circumstances beyond the direct sphere of influence of the Provider such as local or global Internet unavailability or force majeure.
