You can access these terms at any time at our website. We can make changes to these terms at any time in accordance with paragraph 15 below and your continued use of our Services shall confirm your acceptance of the updated terms.
2. About accessing and using our Services2.1
Specific rules and guidelines for usage can be found on the web pages with which you interact when using our Services. Those rules and guidelines form part of these terms and you agree that you shall comply with them in respect of each individual Service which you choose to access and/or use.2.2
You are responsible for the internet connection and/or mobile charges that you may incur for using our Services. You should ask your mobile operator if you are unsure what these charges will be, before you use our Services.2.3
We have the right to withdraw or modify one or more of our Services (in whole or in part) from time to time without liability to you:
- for technical reasons (such as technical difficulties experienced by us or on the internet);
- where we have legal reasons for doing so (including privacy or other legal objections to the content or conduct of our Services);
- to allow us to improve user experience;
- because it no longer makes business sense for us to provide the relevant Service; or
- because we have altered the services we provide.
Changes may take effect without prior notice. Information about these changes will be sent to the email address that you have provided us with no later than 3 days after the changes have taken effect.2.4
There may also be times when our Services or any part of a Service is not available for technical or maintenance related reasons, whether on a scheduled or unscheduled basis.
You agree that you shall take all steps necessary to protect your log in details and keep them secret. You agree that you shall not give your login details to anyone else or allow anyone else to use your login details or account. In these terms, references to "log in details" or "account" include your log in details and account for any third party network or platform that you use in combination with our Services.3.2
If you fail to keep your login details secret, or if you share your login details or account with someone else (whether intentionally or unintentionally), you accept full responsibility for the consequences of this (including any unauthorized purchases) and agree to fully compensate us for any losses or harm that may result.3.3
We will not be responsible to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of an unauthorized person accessing your account and using our Services and we accept no responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from its unauthorized use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.3.4
We reserve the right to delete your account if no activity is conducted by you in relation to the account for 180 or more days. In such event, you will no longer be able to access and/or use any Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods (as defined below) associated with that account and no refund will be offered to you in relation to the same.3.5
You understand that if you delete your account, or if we delete your account in accordance with these terms, you will lose access to all data previously associated with your account (including, without limitation, your personal information and any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods associated with your account), since all this information will be completely, permanently and irrevocably erased from our records.
Some of our Services are provided against payment. We use third party payment service providers to carry out these payments and you agree to meet all (if any) terms and conditions of those third parties. You also agree that the payment fulfilment is the sole responsibility of you and the third party. You will in no way hold us responsible for any losses or harm caused by such third parties (in accordance with paragraph 12). The provision of the Service will start when we receive confirmation from the third party that the payment has been correctly fulfilled.4.2
You agree that all payments are final and that we will not refund any transaction once it has been made.
5. Virtual Goods and Virtual Money5.1
Our Services may include virtual currencies such as points ("Virtual Money") or items or services for use with our Services ("Virtual Goods"). You agree that Virtual Money and Virtual Goods can never be exchanged for real money, real goods or real services from us or anyone else. You also agree that you will only obtain Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods from us, and not from any third party.5.2
You don't own Virtual Goods or Virtual Money but instead you get a limited personal revocable license to use them and any balance of Virtual Goods or Virtual Money doesn't reflect any stored value.5.3
You agree that all sales by us to you of Virtual Money and Virtual Goods are final and that we will not refund any transaction once it has been made. If you live in the European Union you have certain rights to withdraw from distance purchases. However, please note that when you purchase a license to use Virtual Goods or Virtual Money from us, the performance of our services begins promptly once your purchase is complete and therefore your right of withdrawal is lost at this point.5.4
If you live in the European Union, we will provide you with a VAT invoice where we're required to do so by law or where requested by you. You agree that these invoices may be electronic in format.5.5
We reserve the right to control, regulate, change or remove any Virtual Money or Virtual Goods without any liability to you.5.6
Without limiting paragraph 3.5, if we suspend or terminate your account in accordance with paragraph 8 of these terms you will lose any Virtual Money and Virtual Goods that you may have and we will not compensate you for this loss or make any refund to you.
