Terms and Conditions of Sale
1. Virtual Items
You understand that while at times you may “earn” “buy” or “purchase” (a) virtual currency, including but not limited to virtual coins, cash, tokens, or points, all for use in the Services; or (b) virtual in-game items (together with virtual currency, “Virtual Items”); these real world terms are only being used as shorthand. You do not in fact “own” the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Rather, you may purchase a limited license to use the Service, including software programs that occasionally manifest themselves as these items. Any “virtual currency” balance shown in your Account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your license.
Second Gear Games owns, has licensed, or otherwise has rights to use all of the content that appears in the Service. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, you agree that you have no right or title in or to any content that appears in the Service, including without limitation the Virtual Items appearing or originating in a game, whether “earned” in a game or “purchased” from Second Gear Games, or any other attributes associated with an Account or stored on the Service.
In our Services you may purchase, with “real world” money as well as third-party virtual currency, a license to use Virtual Items. Purchases or redemptions of third party virtual currency to acquire a license to use Virtual Items are non-refundable. Purchases of software applications, related services and Virtual Items through third-party app stores and websites (“Stores”) are subject to the Terms of Sale policies of these Stores, including but not limited to order cancellation and refund policies. You agree to pay all applicable taxes and fees incurred by anyone using an Account registered to you. You acknowledge that Second Gear Games is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive money or other compensation for unused Virtual Items when an Account is closed, whether such closure was voluntary or involuntary.
