    10. Payment TermsIn-App purchases

    Players may purchase with real cash, earn, or redeem via gameplay, certain virtual goods to be used within the Apps (" Virtual Items"). Regardless of any other statement in these Terms, You do not own any account that You create on Our Services, and your account is not your property. Likewise, You do not own any Virtual Items that you obtained through the Services, regardless of such Virtual Items were "earned" or "purchased" by You. Your Account and any Virtual Items are owned by Pixode. When Player obtains such Virtual Items from Pixode or its authorized designee, Player receives a limited, personal, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable license and right to use such Virtual Items within the applicable App and solely for non-commercial use.

    Pixode may manage, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items offered at any time, with or without notice. Without limiting the foregoing, Pixode reserves the right at any time to impose additional terms or conditions on Player use of Virtual Items. Such additional terms and conditions will be effective immediately and incorporated into this Agreement. Players continued use of the App will be deemed acceptance thereof. If We need to contact Player about Players Virtual Items or account, Player consents to receive the notices by email (if Player has provided such). Player acknowledges and agrees that any such notices that We send to Player electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements. The transfer of Virtual Items is prohibited, except where expressly authorized in the Apps, if any.

    Virtual Items have no monetary value and are not currency or property. Virtual Items do not have an equivalent value in real cash and do not act as a substitute for real-world money. You are not allowed to transfer (nor will Pixode recognize the transfers of) Virtual Items outside of the Pixode Services, for example by selling, gifting, or trading them. You are not allowed to sublicense, trade, sell, or attempt to sell Virtual Items for "real" money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a game, unless subject to Pixode's prior written authorization. Any such unauthorized transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited, shall be acknowledged by Pixode, and may result in termination of Your account.. Virtual Items may be "earned", "rewarded" or purchased through Our Services, in several methods. When you make a purchase through our Services for Virtual Items, the payment page will let you know what is the price, and what are the payment methods You can use to pay when You make your purchase. When Your purchase is complete, We may send You an email to confirm Your purchase.Virtual Items may only be redeemed for certain gameplay entitlements that may be made available within the App from time to time. Neither Pixode nor any other person or entity has any obligation to exchange Virtual Items for anything of value. Pixode has no liability for hacking or loss of Player's Virtual Items.

    All sales are immediate and final. Price and availability of Virtual Items are subject to change without notice.

    Unless otherwise required by law, all purchases and redemptions of Virtual Items made through the App or Services are final and non-refundable, and Players are not entitled to a refund for any unused or unredeemed Virtual Items. Once Player redeems a Virtual Item for a gameplay entitlement within the App or Services, such gameplay entitlement is not returnable, exchangeable, or refundable. Player acknowledges and consents that the provision of Virtual Items for use in connection with the App or Services is a process that commences immediately upon purchase and Player forfeits the right of withdrawal once the Virtual Items have been provided or performance has started, whichever occurs first.

    Subject to these Terms, Your purchase request represents an offer from You to Us, to obtain a limited license and right to use the relevant Services and/or the Virtual Items. Your offer will be considered accepted by Us when We receive Your payment. At that point, the limited license begins. REQUESTS TO ACQUIRE SUCH A LICENSE AND RIGHT TO USE VIRTUAL ITEMS ON OUR SERVICES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW and Player agrees that Pixode is not required to provide a refund for Virtual Items for any reason and that Player will not receive money or other compensation for unused or unredeemed Virtual Items, whether Players loss of license or use of the Services under this Agreement was voluntary or involuntary.

    If Player requests Personal Data to be erased as specified in Pixode's Player Privacy Policy, Player will permanently and without a right to a refund, lose all of Player's Virtual Items as Pixode can no longer associate such Virtual Items with Player.


    Subscriptions. Some of Pixode's Apps may offer subscription-based Services. If Player purchases a subscription, then by clicking the purchase button Player is requesting that We begin supplying the subscription Services immediately and Player is entering into a monthly subscription contract with Pixode. The player is also authorizing a charge to Player on a recurring basis of a monthly subscription fee at the rate quoted at the time of purchase. By purchasing a subscription, We will automatically charge on a recurring basis the payment method associated with Player's account. For subscription Services purchased in a Pixode App played on a platform such as Apple or Google, the applicable platform will charge Player for the subscription fee and the platform's payment terms will apply. Please review the appropriate platform's payment terms for additional information.

    Trial subscriptions are offered free-of-charge for a certain period of time from activation specified in the relevant trial offer in the App. If Player does not cancel the subscription within such trial period, the trial subscription will automatically convert into a paid subscription for the fees and for the subscription period set out in the App at the time of the activation of the trial period. The player may cancel a subscription during its free trial period using the subscription setting of the account. Any paid subscription Player activate begins immediately from the activation of such paid Subscription and not after the expiration of any trial period. Any unused trial period will, therefore, be forfeited if a subscription is activated prior to the expiration of such trial period.

    Player's subscription will automatically renew each subscription period unless and until Player terminates the subscription or We terminate it. The player must cancel the subscription before it renews, otherwise, payment of the subscription fees for the next period will be taken automatically via the chosen payment method. The player is responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Pixode with a valid credit card or payment account details for payment of all fees. In case the subscription fee cannot be taken from Player's account due to the absence of monetary funds, the invalidity of credit card or for any other reason, the subscription will be automatically cancelled.

    Subscription rates are based on an amount in U.S. Dollars. If Player is using local currency, the actual amount may fluctuate based on currency exchange rates without notice. The charges will be applied to the payment instrument or method provided when the subscription was started (or to a different payment instrument or method if Player changes account information). Please note that prices and charges are subject to change. If We make a change to the monthly subscription rate in U.S. Dollars, We will notify Player of such change in advance.

    Once Player has purchased a subscription, Player cannot cancel the subscription for the current subscription period as that is activated as soon as the subscription is purchased. However, Player may cancel the subscription for the next subscription period as follows: Player can manage and cancel the subscription at any time in Player "Account Settings" of Player's device.

    Except where required by applicable law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable. Pixode in its sole discretion and at any time may modify the subscription fee. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current subscription period. The player will be provided reasonable prior notice of any change in the subscription fee. If Player does not take action to agree to the increase in subscription fee, the subscription shall expire at the end of the then-current subscription period.

    If Player resides in the European Union, Player acknowledges that Player will no longer have the right to cancel under the EU's Consumer Rights Directive (as implemented by the law of the country where Player is located) once we start to supply the Virtual Item's or Subscription.
