We’ve provided a summary of the most notable changes to the ZeniMax Media Terms of Service effective on December 13, 2021.

- In Section 15, we’ve updated your and our agreement to resolve disputes through individual binding arbitration and not in class actions, class-wide arbitrations, or any other proceeding involving anyone’s claims but yours and ours.
- We’ve simplified and shortened the language.
- Outside North America, we’ve added that arbitration may take place in a major city such as a county or provincial seat near you.
- In Sections 15(C)(iv) and 15(E), we’ve clarified that an arbitrator may not award a public injunction (one that would affect many people besides you) and added what happens if that prohibition is found to be illegal or unenforceable.

To reject these changes, mail us a letter by U.S. Mail or your country’s postal service to ZeniMax Media Inc., Attn: Legal Dep't, 1370 Piccard Drive, Rockville, MD 20850 USA within 30 days. If you do, the most recent version of Section 15 before the changes you rejected will apply.
- In Section 18(D), we’ve changed the governing law to that of your country, state, or province, except that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs arbitration.
