While playing our games, you may have the opportunity to visit our online stores and use online “cash” to license a variety of virtual items that can be used while playing various games. You purchase these virtual currencies and items through third party stores such as the App Store and GooglePlay, you are bound by their service terms and should carefully review their agreements. You may also be awarded points to use for virtual “shopping.” These points have no “real world” value, but may be exchanged by you for designated items in the Applications. Certain items have an expiration date, while others have no expiration date. Each item that you obtain using virtual currency or points will be included in your account until the earlier of that item’s expiration date, your account’s expiration or termination date, or such date when the Application is discontinued. REGARDLESS OF THE CONSIDERATION OFFERED OR PAID IN EXCHANGE FOR VIRTUAL CURRENCY, YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY OWNERSHIP RIGHTS IN THE ITEMS OBTAINED WITH VIRTUAL CURRENCY. We have no liability for loss of your items from your account, provided we will use reasonable efforts to replace such items under certain circumstances in our reasonable discretion.

You will also be responsible for paying any applicable taxes relating to such transactions. You understand that we may suspend or terminate your account if for any reason a charge you authorise us via a third party payment service to make to your credit card cannot be processed or is returned to us unpaid and, if such event occurs, you shall immediately remit to us via a third party payment service payment for such charge through the use of another credit card or other payment mechanism. We shall not be responsible or liable for any credit card or bank-related charges or fees related to any of your transactions. We reserve the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or to refuse to provide you with any item.
