The term 'thepodge.co.uk' or 'us' or 'we' refers to the owner of the website.  The term 'you' refers to the user or viewer of our website.


The use of this website is subject to the following terms of use:




Hosting Our Games


Many of our games are freely availabe for you to host on your own website, portal or blog.  Games that are indended for exclusive use on thepodge.co.uk are URL Locked and will display a message when hosted elsewhere.  You must not make changes to the game or otherwise circumvent the URL Locking mechanism.


Furthermore, by hosting our games, you agree to not make changes to the game binary in any way and for any purpose.  You must also ensure all outbound links within the game are fully functional, including advertising links and that all advertising remains visible as intended.


Creating apps out of our games is strictly prohibited.  This includes apps for other formats, Adobe Air apps, any form of downloadable app and social media apps, including Facebook, Bebo and mySpace, available for free or otherwise.  The only exception is portal apps on social media sites which host many games, act like ordinary web portals (eg. Gamebods.com) and acknowledge us as the copyright holder of the game.


In some circumstances, the terms for hosting games can be waived in exchange for a licensing fee which must be agreed upon by both parties.
