Overwolf Terms of Use

Last updated: June, 2020


  1. Developing a gaming app from scratch is hard. This is why we’ve built a framework that provides creators all the tools they need to build apps that benefit gamers. Every app is independent (desktop icon, dedicated installer etc.), the creator has full ownership and development freedom, and Overwolf makes sure it meets the terms of Game Developers (read more, if you like)
  2. Overwolf is free and registration is NOT required.
  3. App developers own, choose, control and manage their creations. They can offer them free of charge, place ads or ask for a monthly subscription. It’s up to them. Overwolf makes sure they do it based on our guidelines for quality and user experience.
  4. Overwolf partners with select service providers to facilitate integrations for app developers (for example, we may partner with Xsoalla or PayPal to facilitate the subscription model for app developers)
  5. When you install or use an app, you also agree to their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
  6. If you have any feedback or concerns, please let us know.

To create an account, you must select a username and password. Your username is your Overwolf identity. You may not select a username that is used by someone else, and your username cannot be indecent, or otherwise offensive, or be used in any way that violates these Terms and common practices. You may not provide false information during the registration process. You must provide truthful and accurate information while creating your Overwolf account.

You should not reveal your password to other users. Overwolf will not ask you to reveal your password.

4. Payments

App developers decide and control how to monetize their apps. Some may choose to provide it free of charge, some may choose to place ads and some may choose to ask for a paid subscription. Overwolf facilitates those services for app developers by partnering with select partners and providing SDK/API to easily control and manage them. When a Member signs up for a subscription, it will automatically charge him/her the applicable payment every month. The subscription months will be calculated from the date of payment. The Member may cancel the subscription at any time, such that s/he will continue to receive the benefits in connection with the subscription until the end of that month and his/her subscription will end at the end of that month. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend offered subscription plans at any time in accordance with these Terms. Subscription prices may change, including recurring subscription fees from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the subscription prior to the price change going into effect.

Overwolf currently facilitates payments through PayPal and Xsolla's platform. Xsolla is also an authorized global distributor of the Software. Overwolf may add or change payment methods in its sole discretion. You must respect the terms and conditions of any payment methods you use. We reserve the right to cancel any Services ordered if full payment is not timely received. We reserve the right to cancel any transaction that we have reason to believe to have been fraudulently made, including by unauthorized use of a credit card, debit card, or other payment method.

You are solely responsible for any taxes on amounts you may pay or obtain through the Services. Overwolf will deduct applicable charges and taxes from any payable amounts, as required by law.
