CREATING AN ACCOUNT
When using our Services, you may choose to, and in some instances, you may be required to, create an account with us. If you do create an account with us, you agree that you shall take all steps necessary to protect your log in details and to keep them secret.
You agree that you shall not give your log in details to anyone else or allow anyone else to use your log in details or account. In particular, where you are creating an account on behalf of a minor, you are responsible for keeping your log in code secret from them.
We will be entitled to assume that anyone logging into your account using your log in details is you. 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.
We will not be responsible to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of an unauthorised person accessing your account and/or using our Services and we accept no responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from its unauthorised use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.
You understand that if you delete your account, or if we delete your account in accordance with these terms, you may lose access to any data previously associated with your account (including, without limitation, your progress through our App and/or the level or score you have reached in our App and any subscription, Virtual Currency or Virtual Goods (both as defined below) associated with your account).
Your account is personal to you and you are not entitled to transfer your account to any other person.
VIRTUAL CURRENCY & VIRTUAL GOODS
Our App includes fictitious coins as a “Virtual Currency” and fictitious gifts in the form of stickers & toys known as “Virtual Goods". You agree that once these Virtual Currency and / or Virtual Goods are acquired and / or purchased, the Virtual Currency and Virtual Goods have no monetary value (as they are merely fictitious) and can never be exchanged for real money, real goods or real services from us or anyone else. You agree that Virtual Currency and/or Virtual Goods are not transferrable to anyone else and you will not transfer or attempt to transfer any Virtual Currency and/or Virtual Goods to anyone else.
You do not own Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Currency but instead you purchase or acquire a limited personal revocable license to use them on the App. Any balance of Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Currency does not reflect any stored monetary value.
You may use the Virtual Currency to unlock premium content for limited usage as stipulated in the in-App purchase.
You agree that all sales by us to you of Virtual Currency are final and that we will not refund / reverse any transaction once it has been made.
If you do not link the App on your device to an account that is linked to either your Facebook account or your mobile phone number, we will not be able to restore any Virtual Currency or other data associated with your account to a different device in the event that you lose your original device that device or in the event it is damaged. Accordingly, on a device which is not connected in this way:
- any risk of loss of Virtual Currency which you purchase from us is transferred to you upon completion of the purchase as described above;
- any risk of loss of Virtual Currency that you receive from us without making a purchase is transferred to you at the time the Virtual Currency is successfully credited to your account on our servers; and
- any risk of loss of other data associated with your account (including, without limitation, your progress through the App, or the level or score you have reached in our App) is transferred to you immediately at the time such data is generated.
The data associated with Virtual Goods is stored locally on your device and so is not syncronised between different devices even if you have connected the App to an account that is linked to either your Facebook account or mobile phone number. Accordingly, any risk of loss of this data is transferred to you at the time the Virtual Goods are credited to you.
We reserve the right to control, regulate, change or remove any Virtual Currency or Virtual Goods at any point in time and without notification to you.
We may revise the pricing for Virtual Currency offered through the Services at any time. We may limit the total amount of Virtual Currency that may be purchased at any one time, and/or limit the total amount of Virtual Currency that may be held in your account in the aggregate. You are only allowed to obtain Virtual Currency from us or our authorized partners through the Services, and not in any other way.
If we suspend or terminate your account in accordance with these terms you may lose any Virtual Currency and Virtual Goods that you may have and we will not compensate you for this loss or make any refund to you.
- If you purchase a subscription to the App, you have the ability to access all content without any Virtual Currency expenses as well as access to certain premium features which are not available to non-subscribers.
- Your subscription will begin as soon as your payment has been processed. You will not have the right to cancel the subscription within the active subscription period.
