Because we believe in establishing long-term relationships with our customers, we decided to use plain English instead, to make our terms as clear as possible.
When you read OrbusVR or we below, it refers to Orbus Online, LLC, its affiliates and agents.
By accessing or using OrbusVR in any way, you agree to and are bound by the terms and conditions written in this document. You also agree to follow the rules in our Code of Conduct, which govern player behaviour inside of the game world itself. A violation of the Code of Conduct may result in the termination of your account under these Terms.
If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions contained in this document, do not access OrbusVR. In addition, keep in mind that if you access the service by purchasing the game through a 3rd-party seller, such as Steam, that seller may have its own Terms and Conditions in addition to our own. You should read their Terms and understand them since violating them can result in loss of access to the game through that seller.
This is a living document. With your help, we want to make it the best in the industry.
We will likely improve this document over time. By continuing to use the site, you will implicitly accept the changes we make.
Your access and use of OrbusVR is always subject to the most current version of this document.
We may block, restrict, disable, suspend or terminate your access to all or part of OrbusVR at any time in our sole discretion, without prior notice or liability to you.
If you think we removed your access by mistake, get in touch and we’ll give you our reasoning. We also have a quick way to restore access without losing any of your data.
Support for OrbusVR is provided via our Community Forums.
We also continuously update the OrbusVR Documentation so that users can help themselves.
We take pride in providing excellent customer support, but we are also a small team and value our work/life balance. This means that although we’ll try our best, we do not guarantee 24 / 7 support.
We collect the following personal data:
We do not collect credit card information directly. See Who can see my credit card number? below.
We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
Please be aware that your browser must be enabled to accept cookies from OrbusVR.com in order for you to use OrbusVR.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.
No-one. We store your password encrypted so no-one can read it. For encrypting the passwords, we use BCrypt hashing.
It is your sole responsibility to keep your user name, password and other sensitive information confidential. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security, you shall notify OrbusVR immediately.
If you forget your password, we send you a secure link via email that lets you reset it.
No-one at OrbusVR. We use the very trustworthy and secure Stripe payment service. Read about their security measures on the Stripe Terms and Conditions (in short, they encrypt your credit card info). In addition, if you make a purchase via a 3rd-party seller, such as Steam, we do not have access to your payment information.
Both Stripe and OrbusVR are PCI-DSS compliant.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging in to the OrbusVR site visiting the My Account page.
You can delete your user account at any time. However, if you do so we may still store information (such as chat logs, character infrormation, or access logs) about your account to allow us to continue providing the service to other users.
The public portions of your profile are visible to anyone visiting the website. The private portions (including the My Account page) are visible only to you. The public content only includes things that are done in the game, and never includes your personally-identifiable information (such as your real name or email address).
We use HTTPS and SSL (256-encryption) to transfer all data. Other than passwords, data is not encrypted when stored in our database (for performance reasons).
All of our customers’ data resides in the same database. We use software best practices to guarantee that only those who should have access to it can see it. In other words, we segment our customer data via software. We do our best and are very confident we’re doing a good job at it, but, like every other software that hosts their customers data on the same database, cannot guarantee that a sophisticated hacker cannot access other people’s data.
If you have discovered a security concern, please email us at [email protected]. We’ll work with you to make sure that we understand the scope of the issue, and that we fully address your concern.
Please act in good faith towards our users’ privacy and data during your disclosure. We won’t take legal action against you or administrative action against your account if you act accordingly: White hat researchers are always appreciated. We don't currently offer monetary rewards for bug reports ("bug bounties.")
Orbus Materials are all the information, data, documents (e.g. white papers, press releases, datasheets, FAQs, etc.), communications, downloads, files, text, images, photographs, graphics, videos, webcasts, publications, content, tools, resources, software, code, programs and products on OrbusVR produced by Orbus Online, LLC.
You agree not to copy, republish, frame, download, transmit, modify, adapt, create derivative works based on, rent, lease, loan, sell, assign, distribute, display, perform, license, sublicense or reverse engineer the OrbusVR service or Orbus Materials or any portions of them. That means, for example, that you will not attempt to create an external program that causes the OrbusVR client to perform differently than intended (such as a hack, exploit, or other tool designed to circumvent the game's rules to create an unfair advantage).
You agree that you will not decompile, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the software. Any copying or redistribution of the software is prohibited, including any copying or reproduction of the software to any other server or location for further reproduction, redistribution or use on a service bureau basis. Any unauthorized use, copying or distribution of the software is expressly prohibited by law, and may result in severe civil and criminal penalties. Violators will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible.

As a part of using the OrbusVR service, you may create content, including (but not limited to) chat messages, forum posts, and voice messages. This is user generated material.

You are solely and entirely responsible for all of your user materials that you post or otherwise submit via OrbusVR.

Orbus does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of your user materials. You acknowledge and agree that by accessing or using OrbusVR, you may be exposed to user materials from others that are offensive, indecent or otherwise objectionable.
In short, we do not. Like all other cloud-based applications, we are vulnerable to the inherent unreliability of the Internet. We do not offer contracted SLA for availability to OrbusVR and your data.
That said, high reliability is something we are proud of and something we deliberately chose to compete on. We have developers, system administrators and support staff on call, 24 / 7.
We monitor OrbusVR closely and have set up automated alarms to be notified (via email and SMS) when the OrbusVR service is under stress, so that we can deal with the issue before it becomes a problem that might impact customer access.
You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable for any failure to store your materials on, or provide access to, OrbusVR at any time.
You agree that you shall not:
