YOU SHALL HAVE NO OWNERSHIP OR PROPERTY INTEREST IN OUR SERVICE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL RIGHTS IN AND TO THE ACCOUNT, INCLUDING ANY VIRTUAL MONEY OR VIRTUAL GOODS (WHETHER EARNED IN A GAME OR PURCHASED FROM FRG), ARE AND SHALL FOREVER BE OWNED BY AND INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF FRG.
As outlined in Section 2.1., you can purchase a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use Virtual Money and Virtual Goods. FRG may regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money at any time, with or without notice and have no liability to you or any third party if FRG exercises any such rights. You agree that Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods are not transferrable to anyone. You agree not to transfer or attempt to transfer any Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods. You also agree that Virtual Money and Virtual Goods have no monetary value and can never be exchanged for real money, services or goods from us or anyone else, once purchased. Xou may also collect virtual goods with variable outcomes. According to national rules and regulations we’d like to publicate the propabilites of all four Safes that can be collected in Tower Duel at http://www.towerduel.com/safes.html
We may change the pricing and/or limit the amount of Virtual Goods and Virtual Money at any time. Virtual Goods or Virtual Money are usually purchased from your platform provider and hence also subject to the terms of service of your platform provider. Additional charges may be required by the bank you are using for the transaction. We accept no liability in relation to additional charges, because we have no control over them. You agree to pay all fees, applicable taxes and other charges incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you.
You agree that all sales concerning Virtual Money and/or Virtual Goods are final and are not refunded once a transaction has been made. The provision of the Virtual Goods or Virtual Money to you begins promptly and your purchase is complete once Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money are successfully credited to your account on our servers. Your right of withdrawal is lost once your Virtual Goods and/or Virtual Money are successfully credited to your account on our servers.
YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FRG IS NOT REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A COMPENSATION FOR UNUSED VIRTUAL MONEY AND VIRTUAL GOODS WHEN AN ACCOUNT IS CLOSED, WHETHER SUCH CLOSURE WAS VOLUNTARY OR INVOLUNTARY. If we suspend or terminate your account you may lose any Virtual Money and Virtual Goods and we will not compensate you for this loss nor do we offer a refund.
6. Limitation of Liability and Disclaimer of Warranties
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, FRG SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM USE, POSSESSION, OR MALFUNCTION OF THE SERVICE OR PARTS OF IT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES TO PROPERTY, LOSS OF PROFITS, COMPUTER FAILURE, LOSS OF DATA OR MALFUNCTION AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL INJURIES, EVEN IF FRG HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THESE DAMAGES. IN NO CASE SHALL OUR LIABILITY EXCEED THE ACTUAL PRICE PAID BY YOU (IF ANY) FOR THE LICENSE TO USE VIRTUAL GOODS OR VIRTUAL MONEY OR ANY OTHER PART OF OUR GAMES OR SERVICES.
WITHOUT LIMITING FRG’S LIABILITY, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS FOR YOUR USE. WE DO NOT GRANT ANY WARRANTIES OR LIABILITY.
However, this may not apply for you when your jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties. In this case, we accept liability in accordance with any legally required minimum standards.
