Instant Games In Game Payment Terms
These Instant Games In Game Payment Terms (“Terms”) apply to your use of Instant Games In Game Payment feature which allows Facebook users (“Users”) to purchase digital goods inside of a game experience. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Facebook.
Mobile Platform Terms - The amendments to the SRR included in this item 4 apply solely with respect to in-game purchases made on Games on Mobile Platforms through FB’s Instant Games interface and do not modify any existing agreement (other than the SRR as set forth below), including those applicable to in-game purchases on www.facebook.com and www.messenger.com.
Your use of the Instant Games in Game Payment feature is subject to, and you agree to comply with the (a) Monetization Eligibility Standards currently available at https://www.facebook.com/help/publisher/169845596919485, and (b) Content Guidelines for Monetization currently available at https://www.facebook.com/facebookmedia/get-started/monetization_contentguidelines.
SRR, Platform Policy, Section 10.4(a). Section 10.4(a) of the Platform Policy (currently found at https://developers.facebook.com/policy/) (“Platform Policy”) is hereby deleted and replaced with the following:
Don't charge for any items within iOS games (i.e., iOS games must be free to play). For all other games, you may only charge for items in your game as permitted pursuant to this Amendment."
The following language is added as a new Section 10.4(f) of the Platform Policy:
a. Authorizes Facebook to sell licenses of certain digital goods made available within the Games ("Digital Goods") within the Facebook and Messenger applications in the Territory and during the Term; and
b. Grants Facebook a license to reproduce, distribute, perform, and display the Digital Goods to persons who have purchased licenses to such Digital Goods pursuant to Section 10.4(e)(a) (directly above)."
The following revisions are made to the Developer Payments Terms:
All references to "Developer Balance" are deleted and replaced with "Developer Revenue Share."
Section 1.2 (Roles of Parties) of the Developer Payments Terms is deleted and replaced with the following:
"Roles of Parties. You accept responsibility for fulfilling each transaction upon confirmation that the payment for that transaction has been completed successfully. Facebook will sell licenses to your digital goods, with payments processed through the applicable mobile platform's ("Mobile Platform") in-app payment functionality."
Section 2.1 (Developer Balance) of the Developer Payments Terms is deleted and replaced with the following:
"Developer Revenue Share. Developers using Facebook Payments will have a Developer Revenue Share with Facebook. Whenever Facebook processes a sale of your digital goods within the Games within the Facebook or Messenger applications, Facebook will credit the proceeds from that sale, less any Mobile Platform taxes and service fees (e.g., including the thirty percent (30%) service fee from Mobile Platforms, and our service fee, if any, etc.), to your Developer Revenue Share. Facebook will earn a service fee of 30% of your Developer Revenue Share and will additionally withhold any sales, use, turnover, withholding or value added tax, where applicable, from each disbursement for any Facebook Payments transaction subject to these Terms. Facebook will not take a service fee for any sales of digital goods on Android."
Section 2.3(3) of the Developer Payments Terms is deleted and replaced with the following:
a. "Facebook will redeem your Developer Revenue Share approximately 60 days following the end of the month in which the transaction occurred, except as otherwise set forth herein."
Instant Games In Game Payment is part of "Facebook" under Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms, the "SRR"), and your use of Instant Games in Game Payment is deemed part of your use of, and actions on, "Facebook." In the event of any express conflict between these Terms and the SRR, these Terms will govern solely with respect to your use of Instant Games in Game Payment and solely to the extent of the conflict.
