All capitalized terms not defined in this Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct will have the meaning set forth in the Nintendo DSi Services User Agreement.

  1. Your use of the Nintendo DSi Service is subject to this Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct, which prohibits all harmful, illegal or otherwise offensive conduct, including, but not limited to the following:

  2. Nintendo is not responsible for anything you communicate using the Nintendo DSi System or anything that happens on the Nintendo DSi Service or as a result of your use of the Nintendo DSi Service; you alone are responsible.
  3. Virtual Property. Some games or other content may have certain features that may be traded with other Nintendo DSi Service users. For example, a game might give you the ability to create a character that gathers objects (like a car or gold coins) and has certain characteristics (like a special ability or appearance). These features are sometimes called "virtual property." Nintendo (or its licensors) own this virtual property, and you may not sell, trade, assign, license, or otherwise convey virtual property for real money or for Points.
  4. Nintendo reserves the right to immediately terminate or suspend your use of the Nintendo DSi Service for, in Nintendo’s sole discretion, any violation of this Nintendo DSi Code of Conduct. Nintendo reserves the right to contact and cooperate with any law enforcement agencies, government officials or Internet Service Providers, as Nintendo believes in its sole discretion, is necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, or as otherwise required by law.
