The Service may include an opportunity to earn or purchase virtual, in-game currency, including but not limited to virtual coins, points, credits, bonuses or chips all for use in the Service ("Coins") or virtual in-game items or collections (together with the Coins, “Virtual Items”). If you wish to purchase Virtual Items you will be required to pay a fee using “real world” money to obtain the Virtual Items. Virtual Items can never be redeemed or cashed out for “real world” money, goods, or any other item of monetary value from Playtika or any other party unless otherwise expressly authorized by Playtika in the framework of its Services. You understand that you have no right or title in the Virtual Items appearing or originating in any Playtika game, whether “earned” in a game or “purchased” from Playtika, or any other attributes associated with an Account or stored on the Service. Your purchase of Virtual Items is final and is not refundable, transferable or exchangeable, except in Playtika's sole discretion. You may not transfer, purchase, sell, or exchange Virtual Items outside the Service, or the purported sale, gift or trade in the "real world" of anything that appears or originates in the Service, unless otherwise expressly authorized by Playtika in writing. We won’t recognize those transfers as legitimate. Accordingly, you may not sublicense, trade, sell or attempt to sell in-game Virtual Items for "real" money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a game, without Playtika’s written permission. Doing so is a violation of these Terms and may result in termination of your Account and/or legal action taken against you, any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void. Other than a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicense able license to use the Virtual Items with the Services, you have no right or title in or to any such Virtual Items appearing or originating with the Services, or any other attributes associated with use of the Services or stored within the Services. Playtika retains the right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate Virtual Items at its sole discretion, and Playtika shall have no liability to you or anyone for the exercise of such rights. Prices and availability of Virtual Items are subject to change without notice. In addition to the foregoing, Playtika may selectively remove or revoke Virtual Items associated with your Account upon its sole discretion.
Virtual Items may only be held by legal residents of countries where access to and use of the Services are permitted. Virtual Items may only be purchased or acquired from us and through means we provide on the applicable website or otherwise expressly authorize. Playtika does not recognize any purchases or transfers made outside of the Service on any other platform or e-commerce website, and shall not be liable for any claims or damages caused to the users with respect to Virtual Items purchased or obtained from third parties, and not through the means provided within the game. We reserve the right to refuse your request to purchase and/or acquire Virtual Items for any reason or revise the pricing for the Virtual Items at any time. You can get a limited license to Virtual Items by visiting the purchase page in one of our games, providing your billing information, confirming the particulars of your purchase and re-affirming your agreement to these Terms. Virtual Items purchased in our games on other applications stores or platforms such as but not limited to Facebook, Apple iOS, or Android will be subject to those platforms’ payment terms and conditions. Playtika does not control how you can pay on those platforms and shall not be liable for processing the payment by such third parties. Please review those platforms’ terms of service for additional information. Your order for Virtual Items will represent an offer to us to obtain a limited license for the relevant service(s) or virtual in-game item(s) which will be accepted by us when we make the Virtual Items available in your account for you to use in our games or debit your credit card or other account through which you paid, whichever comes first. Your limited license to Virtual Items for use in Playtika games is a service provided by Playtika that starts when we accept your payment or redemption of third party virtual currency. When you get a limited license to use Virtual Items, they will reside in your Account until discharged through use of the Service or otherwise surrendered as a result of termination of the Services in accordance with these Terms. When purchasing Virtual Items or other content as may be made available, you agree to pay us the applicable charges for your purchase, including applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you, using a valid charge card or other payment method we may accept in accordance with the billing terms and prices in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. All sales of Virtual Items and/or other content are final. If your Account is charged for items you did not purchase, or you did not receive the items you purchased, or you were charged an incorrect amount, you may request a refund or correction in accordance to payment provider policy. Any refund request must be received within 96 hours from the time of purchase in order for refunds to be issued in accordance to payment provider policy. Refund requests past 96 hours from time of purchase will be honored according only in accordance to our payment policy. Other than charges to your Account, you agree to notify us about any billing problems or discrepancies within 30 days after they first appear on your Account statement. If you do not bring them to our attention within 30 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies. You are responsible for and agree to reimburse us for all reversals, charge-backs, claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by us (including costs and related expenses) that were caused by or arising out of payments that you authorized or accepted. You understand that we may suspend or terminate your Account if for any reason a charge you authorize us to make to your credit card or other method of payment cannot be processed or is returned to us unpaid and, if such event occurs, you shall immediately remit to us payment for such charge through an alternative payment method. You acknowledge that Playtika is not required to provide a refund for any other 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, or whether you made a payment through playtika.com, applications stores or another platform such as but not limited to Apple, Google, Facebook, or any other sites or platforms where we offer our Services. All Virtual Items are forfeited if your Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Playtika's sole and absolute discretion, or if the Services are no longer available. If your Account, or a particular subscription for the Service associated with your Account, is terminated, suspended and/or if any Virtual Items are selectively removed or revoked from your Account, no refund will be granted, no Virtual Items will be credited to you or converted to cash or other forms of reimbursement.

The express waiver by Playtika of any provision, condition, or requirement of the Playtika’s Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any future obligation to comply with such provision, condition or requirement.
