An excerpt from the Square Enix EULA for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn:

2.2 Real Money Trading, Farming and Power-Leveling. You may not sell, purchase or exchange for real-world money or value any in-game currency, accounts, characters, in-game services, or in-game virtual items. You may not play the Game for the purpose of acquiring virtual items or advancement in game play on behalf of a third-party or for the purpose of selling any virtual assets to a third party for real-world money, specifically including "gold-farming" and power-leveling services.

The items in the Free Company chest are donations to help people. Items are not donated to help people get rich off the generosity of our members. While we've let people off with a warning in the past, the continued abuse of the Free Company chest and thievery may result in demotions or dismissal from the Free Company depending on the severity of the action.

We will address issues and grievances on a one-on-one basis. Please report any grievances to our officers. You can send us a private message through the site or talk to us privately in Mumble or in-game. We can't always be online to monitor everything that happens so please keep in mind that you may need to submit evidence or provide names of additional witnesses for action to be taken against another member.

Typically, a warning will be issued depending on the severity of the problem. Warnings and offending users will be tracked by Free Company leadership. We will try our best to work out these grievances but repeat offenders may be demoted or dismissed permanently from the Free Company and banned from our Mumble server and website.
