It is clarified that while it will be SquadRun’s effort to assign a Mission to every Player who accepts it, acceptance of a Mission by a Player shall not guarantee that such Player will be assigned such Mission. The assignment of any Mission to a Player shall be at SquadRun’s sole and absolute discretion. It is clarified that a Player shall be eligible to receive a Mission Request and participate in a Mission only if the Player has at least one (1) outstanding Life. In the event the Player does not have at least one (1) outstanding Life, the provisions of Clause 3 of this Agreement shall apply.
By accepting and being assigned an Assigned Mission, you agree and undertake to use your best efforts to perform such Assigned Mission in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions set out in the Mission Request (“Mission Agreement”), such that the Deliverables are satisfactory to SquadRun and the Customer(s). It is clarified that by accepting and on being assigned an Assigned Mission, you are also entering into a binding legal agreement with SquadRun to provide the Deliverables for the consideration and as per the terms and conditions set out in the Mission Request. It is further clarified that the Mission Agreement is in addition to and shall always be read along with this Agreement.

SquadRun will not transfer any SquadCoins for an Assigned Mission if SquadRun or its Customer rejects the Deliverables associated with that Assigned Mission. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and for all expenses incurred by you in connection with performing the Assigned Missions or otherwise performing your obligations under this Agreement.

In the event, you fail to complete any three (3) Missions in accordance with this Agreement and the Mission Agreement, your account with SquadRun and the SquadCoins therein, shall stand suspended, and you shall not be permitted to participate in future Missions till such time that the suspension is effective.
