Ubisoft Online Service:
Ubisoft games released in 2010 like Silent Hunter 5, Assassin's Creed 2, The Settlers 7 are protected by the "Ubisoft Online Service".
Ubisoft checks the license status online and in real-time and prevents the same license being used by more than one player at the same time.
Therefore your computer must have a permanent internet access in order to play.
Another feature of the Ubisoft Online Service allows you to save the game on the Ubisoft servers.
Thus you can install the game on as many computers as you want and continue your saved game wherever you are.
Please remember that your activation key can only be bound to one account.
If you need to reinstall the game, or if you wish to activate it on another machine, please make sure you always use the same Ubisoft account you have created when activating the game the first time.
If you cannot remember which one you have used, please contact the publisher support at http://support.ubi.com/.
