9. Operation Policy for the Protection of Customer Service Representatives

The main purpose of customer service is to help the customer. However, inquiries containing abusive languages such as profanity and derogatory language may be stopped.

Service representatives are the employees of the Company who work to help Users, but they are also individuals who need to be protected. Therefore, we will take measures to protect Service representatives against any Users who use the customer Service inappropriately.

The Company guarantees the safety of all its employees and actively protects them.

As such, if the customer service representative’s human rights are violated and this disrupts the Service operations, warnings will be sent to the User who sent the inquiry, such inquiry may no longer be answered, and restrictions on game Service may be applied to the User.

9.1 Acts of infringing the Human Rights of Customer Service Representatives

  • 1) Profanity, sexual harassment, inducing humiliation, infringement of personality, threatening expressions in 1:1 inquiries, and phone calls unrelated to the Service.
  • 2) Continuous abuse, sexual harassment, personal insults, and threatening inquiries that hinder the operation of 1:1 inquiries and phone calls.
  • 3) Other acts that can cause serious psychological damage to our customer service representatives, and hinder the operation of 1:1 inquiries and phone calls.

9.2 If the User violates the human rights of our customer service representatives, the User may be restricted from using our Service as shown below.

※ Customer Service will be resumed for 1:1 inquiries, phone calls, or visits that do not include violations of the operation policy.

If profanity, sexual harassment, personal infringement, and threatening expressions are repeated even after the third sanction, game restrictions may be applied cumulatively for up to 30 days.

An account can be permanently restricted without prior notice if the User has severely infringed human rights. The categories below are considered severe infringement.
