If you are under the age of 18 (or the relevant age in your jurisdiction where you are considered a minor), your parent or guardian must agree to these Terms (both for themselves and on your behalf) before you can use the Platform.
We may translate these Terms into multiple languages. If there is any difference between the English version and any other language version of these Terms, the English version will prevail and apply (to the extent permitted by applicable laws and regulations).
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any complaints or queries about the Services.
1.1 It is very important that you read and understand the terms and conditions governing: (i) the sale of the Items by the Operator as seller to you as buyer; (ii) your rights in the Items; and (iii) your use of the relevant Game or Items (together, the "Operator's Terms") before purchasing any Items using the Services.
1.2 We are not responsible for and do not endorse any particular Game or Item. We do not grant you any rights to use the Items under these Terms. Any such rights shall be between you and the Operator under the Operator's Terms.
1.3 We are not a party to the Operator's Terms, which are between you and the Operator, and which set out the terms on which you purchase the Items and your rights and obligations with respect to the use of such Items, including the value or worth of such Items and the terms and conditions applicable to their use, transfer, redemption or cancellation.
3.1 Provided that you comply with these Terms and pay us any applicable fees, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free and revocable licence to access and make personal and non-commercial use of the Services and any software we make available as part of the Services. This licence is limited to and does not include or extend to any resale or commercial use of the Services or its content; any collection and use of any product listings, descriptions or prices; any derivative use of the Services or its contents; any downloading or copying of account information for the benefit of any person; or any use of the Services in conjunction with any data mining tools, robots, scrapers or similar data gathering and extraction tools.
3.2 All rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms are reserved and retained by us, our affiliates or our licensors, suppliers, publishers, rights holders or other content providers as applicable. The Services, or any part of the Services, may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose. Your use of any intellectual property rights belonging to us, or our affiliates, licensors, suppliers, publishers, rights holders or content providers is subject to these Terms.
3.3 Any goodwill accruing out of the use of our and our affiliates' trademarks, trade and business names and service marks under these Terms will vest in us and our affiliates, as the case may be.
3.4 We reserve the right to refuse to provide the Services to anyone for any reason, in our sole and absolute discretion without being obliged to provide you with any reason or notification.
4.1 You may use the Services in accordance with these Terms to search for product information relating to Items, and pre-order and purchase Items as may be provided for on the Platform from time to time.
4.2 In order to use the Services you must comply with the requirements as set out in these Terms. If you do not comply with these requirements at any point you must cease using the Services immediately and to the extent permitted under applicable law, you shall be liable for any legal consequences, including costs, losses or damages which we may suffer or incur as a result.
4.3 You shall provide all necessary information and supporting documents as reasonably requested by us from time to time for the purpose of your use of the Services and/or compliance with applicable laws in any jurisdiction.
4.4 You must not use the Services: (a) in any way that causes, or is likely to cause, the Services, or any access to the Services, to be interrupted, damaged or impaired in any way; or (b) for fraudulent purposes, or in connection with a criminal offence or other unlawful activity.
4.5 You must not use fraudulent means to purchase Items or make use of any payment methods to purchase Items for fraudulent purposes or otherwise in connection with a criminal offence or other unlawful activity. If such activity is detected by us, we may refuse any purchase or initiate refund to you relating to such Items. In the event a refund is initiated by us, the relevant Operator shall disable your access to the relevant Items and/or retrieve the relevant Items from you. We reserve the right to claim against you for any legal consequences, including costs, losses or damages which we may suffer or incur as a result.
4.6 In addition to the restrictions set out in these Terms, you must not use the Services:
(a) to cause or potentially cause any unreasonable or disproportionate burden on the Services;
(b) to interfere or attempt to interfere with the Services or our ability to provide the Services; or
(c) to manipulate any transactions carried out via the Services in any manner that is in breach of these Terms, any Operator's Terms or in any manner that is contrary to applicable law.
4.7 You hereby acknowledge and agree that Operators, and not us or any other of our affiliates, are responsible for accurately listing their Items and you are responsible for reading the description of the Items listed by Operators and making your own judgments before making a purchase. All sales are binding and you agree to perform all your obligations in relation to such sale.
Our Services are provided to you on an "as is", "where-is" basis based on existing technology, however, we warrant to you that we will provide the Services using reasonable skill and care. Subject to applicable law, we make no other representation, condition or warranty of any kind, express or implied, and you hereby waive all such representations, conditions and warranties, including, without limitation: (a) that the Services or the Items will meet your requirements, will always be available, accessible, uninterrupted, timely, secure or operate without error; (b) that Items or information or content relating to the Items included on or available through the Services will be as represented by Operators, available for sale at the time of listing, lawful to sell, or that Operators will perform as promised; (c) that Items will represent fair value, retain their value or otherwise meet your expectations as to their worth, exchange value or utility; and (d) without limiting the generality of the foregoing: (i) any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement; (ii) any implied warranty arising from course of dealing or usage of trade; (iii) any implied obligation, liability, right, claim or remedy under contract; and (iv) any obligation, liability, right, claim or remedy in tort, whether or not arising from our negligence, in equity, or otherwise. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, we disclaim any and all such representations, conditions and warranties.
6.1 We will assist in facilitating transactions that are carried out on the Platform, but we are neither the buyer nor the seller of Items that are the subject of a transaction carried out through the Services. Any agreement for the sale of any Items is solely between you as the buyer, and the Operator as the seller. We are not a party to that agreement and we do not have any responsibility in connection with it nor are we an agent for the Operator.
6.2 Please note that we do not directly provide any credit or debit, stored value and/or payment processing services for sales or purchases conducted on the Platform. Such facilities and services are performed by and are the responsibility of the issuer or operator of your relevant credit or debit card, stored value facility, payment service or other payment instrument (each, a "Payment Instrument" and such issuers and operators, the "Payment Provider") under separate terms and conditions which you have agreed with the Payment Provider.
7.1 We retain the right, in our sole discretion, to suspend or terminate the Services, prevent or restrict access to Services, take any other action to restrict your access to or availability of the Services or to suspend or terminate your access to the Services if we consider you may have breached these Terms or otherwise made inappropriate use of the Services.
7.2 You acknowledge and agree that we are entitled to offer cooperation and provide information, including information about or provided by you, to any administrative or judicial authority in any jurisdiction.
8.1 We may provide you with options to close or minimise advertisements on the Platform, but you must not in any way screen or filter the advertisements in any manner not expressly permitted by us in writing. We may also, from time to time, carry out marketing and promotional activities in relation to the Platform, such as "red packet" giveaways, or top-up gifts.
8.2 Save as required by applicable laws, we shall have no liability for any loss or damage incurred or suffered by you arising from transactions you enter into in reliance upon such advertisements or promotional and marketing information.
The price you will pay for your purchase of Items is determined by the Operator and denominated in the currency at the election of the Operator (the "Purchase Currency") from time to time. Please note that the price for Items as may be provided for on the Platform from time to time may vary to reflect the Purchase Currency. Please be aware of and carefully consider any recurring charges that may arise from the purchase of Items. You may also be informed of an approximate value in your local currency of the actual Purchase Currency price for your purchase. The approximate local currency price uses historical, not real-time, currency exchange rates and is only an approximation of the value of the Purchase Currency price for your purchase.
If the Payment Instrument you use to pay for your purchase is not denominated in the Purchase Currency, the amount you pay will be your local currency equivalent (as determined by your Payment Provider) of the actual Purchase Currency price. Your Payment Provider may also charge you other fees (including but not limited to currency conversion and/or transaction fees) for you making a purchase in the Purchase Currency rather than your local currency (such as where you use a credit card from an overseas jurisdiction/region to complete your purchase). Please contact your Payment Provider for more information about these additional fees. You are solely responsible for any applicable taxes, charges or fees imposed by your Payment Provider in connection with your use of the Services. We and our affiliates shall not be responsible or liable for any exchange rate used by your Payment Provider.
9.2 Delivery of Items
The Operator shall be responsible for the delivery of Items transacted through the Services, and we will not be liable or responsible to you in any way for the delivery of such Items.
If you request a refund for any Items, or if the Operator cannot charge your payment method for any reason (such as insufficient funds or expiration of your payment method), the relevant Operator may disable your access to the relevant Items and/or retrieve the relevant Items from you. We shall not be responsible to compensate or indemnify you for any such loss of access or any other losses that you may suffer or incur in this regard.
If a dispute arises in relation to Items, including in relation to disputes regarding the price and/or quality of Items bought and sold via the Services, such dispute shall be resolved by you and the Operator only, without any involvement from us. You hereby release us (and our affiliates, Payment Provider, employees, representatives and agents) from claims, demands and damages (actual, direct, consequential or otherwise) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute. However, we will have the right, in our sole discretion, to facilitate and assist in such disputes, but we will not in any way be a party or be deemed to be a party to such disputes.
You irrevocably authorise us to assist in the settlement of disputes arising from your use of the Services which may include instructing the Payment Provider to hold or transfer all or part of such disputed funds to a disputing party (subject to a reversion of the transfer depending on the final outcome of the dispute). In such event, you shall indemnify us for any liabilities arising out of our decision.
The Services may allow you to purchase access to content on a subscription basis. These subscriptions may be offered on an automatic, continuous monthly basis ("Monthly Subscription(s)") or on a one-off, fixed term non-continuous basis ("One-off Subscription(s)").
Monthly Subscriptions will be automatically charged on a monthly 30-day basis, and you may be charged no more than 24 hours before the beginning of each monthly billing period. If we cannot charge your method of payment for any reason (such as insufficient funds or expiration of your payment method), we shall terminate your Monthly Subscription for the following month. We may, from time to time, in our sole discretion, offer promotions if you purchase a Monthly Subscription. The terms and conditions of any such promotions shall be determined by us in our sole discretion and will be provided to you at the time when you purchase a Monthly Subscription.
You can cancel your Monthly Subscription at any time before the beginning of the relevant monthly billing period, and the cancellation will apply to the following monthly billing period. For example, if you cancel your Monthly Subscription at any time in any given monthly billing period, the Monthly Subscription will be cancelled as of the following monthly billing period and you will not receive a refund for the current monthly billing period.
If you wish to cancel your Monthly Subscription, please visit our website or you can instruct your Payment Provider directly to cancel your subscription payment. You agree that we shall deem any instructions received from your Payment Provider to us as duly authorized by you and we shall have no liability to you, in connection with any such instruction. You agree to irrevocably authorize us to instruct the relevant Operators to cancel your Monthly Subscription.
One-off Subscriptions will be charged once at the time when the subscription is made and you will not receive any refund for the One-off Subscription amount.
