Terms & Conditions

Thank you for choosing the Lifeboat Network(“lifeboat” “we” “us” “our”). By using the Lifeboat websites, servers, and including purchasing virtual goods, you are bound to the Terms and Conditions as written below. We reserve the right to make changes to this agreement at any time, for any reason.

Be Nice
All players on the Lifeboat Network are required to behave civilly. Do not use foul language, or inappropriate skins. Do not insult other players, or berate groups of people on Lifeboat. We reserve the right to ban players from the network, including those who have made purchases. If you insult other players in chat we will censor such comments and we will ban you if you do so repeatedly.

We encourage you to use your time on the Lifeboat Network to interact positively with other players. Build each other up. Also, the Lifeboat Network can be a great place to interact with your friends, but it is not a suitable place to find a girlfriend or boyfriend, or make other similar solicitations. Don’t give out your real name, e-mail, or any other personal identifiers.

Our volunteer moderators work hard to keep the entire network safe for children, but they cannot prevent all bad things from occurring. Please do your part in preventing inappropriate things from happening on Lifeboat by taking the time to read our In-Game Rules.

Following the rules will help keep Lifeboat a friendly and welcoming place! Remember: the moderator or staff member always has the last say in things. If you believe that you were wrongly punished by a volunteer, or staff member, please send us an appeal.

Refund Policy
Playing on our network is entirely free, thus providing you the opportunity to experience our network prior to making a purchase. Purchases are final, there are no refunds. As such, if you are banned for violating the Terms and Conditions, no money will be refunded.

Also, you don’t get your money back if VIP, or a subscription rank, is not everything you had hoped for. We try to represent this as best we can, but know the exact nature of VIP is constantly changing as we develop the game. We hope you buy a rank, primarily because it supports the network. If you were being beaten without VIP, you will be beaten with VIP.

By purchasing ranks (VIP+, MVP, or UberVIP) from the Lifeboat Network, you are purchasing access to control virtual items on our servers. The virtual items themselves are supplied by Mojang AB, supplier of the game software. Your payment is for Lifeboat’s portion of the system, not that supplied by Mojang or any other party. Lifeboat is an official partner of Minecraft. We are not Mojang AB, nor are we Microsoft.

All paid ranks (VIP+, MVP, or UberVIP) are subject to change without notice. The packages emphasize joining, playing with friends, cosmetic advantages, and play style preference, but not in-game advantages. The outcome of the games will be determined by your skill, not whether you purchase VIP. Pictures and descriptions are for illustration only and do not necessarily depict your game play experience.

VIP+ is only for the game types specified, and only for one account.

We do our best to keep game types up, but make no guarantees as to their availability or continued existence. We will keep any game type available for a minimum of 90 days after we discontinue any game-specific product, and typically much longer.

If you own a plot on the Lifeboat Network that permits what you built to last through daily server resets, please be aware that we need to periodically reset all the plots on the servers. This becomes necessary especially as we update maps and add game features. We strive to do this as infrequently as possible, and regret that you will lose work when we do so. Thank you for your understanding.

Contests, Media, and Premiums

If you tweet or send something to us (like fan art) we can do with it what we want. For example, re-tweet it or put it up on our website. This will generally be with giving credit to you, and with the goal of building up you and the rest of the community. So if you don’t want something rebroadcast, don’t send it to us.

In either engaging with us, or in contest, avoid sending any identifiers, and we will avoid re-broadcasting them. Specifically, we would like pictures of the swell t-shirt you got from us, but keep your good-looking face out of it. Keep any name and address stuff out of the background of photos. If we need to ask for your shipping address to send you something, we will treat this information as confidential.

If you win a prize from us for any reason, we will generally announce your in-game name through social media congratulating you. If you don’t want this notoriety, don’t enter our challenges or contests. All prizes are of nominal value, and there is never a requirement to purchase anything in order to participate in our prize giveaways. All are subject to local laws, and void where prohibited. We reserve the right to limit the amount of free stuff as we see fit.

If you win a contest, or are awarded a premium for a purchase, we will make reasonable efforts to get it to you. But we will probably not follow up if you give us a wrong address, so enter it carefully.
