1. Your Access to the Service

Subject to your agreement and continuing compliance with these Terms and any other relevant Valas Media policies, Valas Media grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable limited license to access and use the Service for your own private and non-commercial purposes. You agree not to use the Service for any other purpose.

Except as specifically allowed pursuant to these Terms, you are not entitled to use, copy, store, modify, transfer, distribute, sell, rent or otherwise make publicly available your account, the Service, a part thereof or the material contained therein in any way. Your use of the Service is subject to these Terms and any reasonable instructions provided by Valas Media from time to time.

Valas Media reserves the right to terminate or restrict your access to the Service or a part thereof permanently or temporarily without prior notice if you violate these Terms or if you abuse the Service. Valas Media is entitled to prevent access to the Service if we have reason to believe that you are engaged in illegal activity or compromise other users' or Valas Media's data security or privacy.

You agree that you shall not use cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service. You also agree not to attack, induce a disruption on or try to gain unauthorized access to other users’ accounts or the servers used by the Service.

We reserve the right to delete your account if no activity is conducted by you in relation to the account for 180 or more days. In such event, you may no longer be able to access and/or use any Virtual Items (as defined below) associated with that account and no refund will be offered to you in relation to the same.

No devices or connections necessary for the use of the Service are provided subject to these Terms. For the sake of clarity, you are responsible for purchasing, maintaining and updating such devices and connections (including data security) and for any costs related thereto.

2. Intellectual Property and Ownership Rights

All rights, title and interest in and to the Service (including without limitation any games, titles, computer code, themes, objects, stories, concepts, artwork, animations, sounds, musical compositions and audio-visual effects) are either owned or licensed by Valas Media. Valas Media reserves all rights, including without limitation, all intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights, in connection with its games and the Service.

Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you have no right or title in or to any content that appears in the Service, including without limitation the virtual goods appearing or originating in any of Valas Media's games, whether earned in a game or purchased from Valas Media, the game account itself, or any other attributes associated with an account or stored on the Service.

3. Fees and Purchase Terms

3.1. Purchases

In the Service you may purchase a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use "virtual in-game items" (together "Virtual Items"). You are only allowed to purchase Virtual Items from us or our authorized partners through the Service, and not in any other way. The purchase of Virtual Items is limited to players who are either (a) 18 years of age or older; or (b) under the age of 18 and have the consent of a parent (or legal guardian) to make the purchase. Parents of children under the age of 18 can consult the iOS or Google Play settings for their App to restrict in-App purchases, but should also monitor their children's accounts for unexpected activity, including the purchase of Virtual Items.

We reserve the right to control, regulate, change or remove any Virtual Items without any liability to you. The transfer of Virtual Items is prohibited except where expressly authorized in the Service. Other than as expressly authorized in the Service, you shall not sell, redeem or otherwise transfer Virtual Items to any person or entity, including but not limited to Valas Media, another user or any third party.

Please note that when you purchase a licence to use Virtual Items from us, you acknowledge and agree that we will begin the provision of the Virtual Goods or Virtual Money to you promptly once your purchase is complete and therefore your right of withdrawal is lost at this point.

3.2. Payment of Fees

You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using your mobile device. Valas Media may revise the pricing for the goods and services offered through the Service at any time. All claims arising in connection with purchases shall be directly addressed towards the application platform operators (Apple in the case of iOS and Google in the case of Android), and you understand and agree that Valas Media shall not have any obligation and will not refund any purchases on its own.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT VALAS MEDIA 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.

4. Updates to the Service

Valas Media may update its products and subsequently require that you accept updates to the Service and to Valas Media's games you have installed on your devices. You acknowledge and agree that Valas Media may update the Service and games made by us, with or without notifying you. You may need to update third party software from time to time in order to receive the Service and play our games.

5. Limitation of Liability

THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. VALAS MEDIA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTIONS OR ERROR-FREE. FURTHER, VALAS MEDIA SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE CONTENT IN THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE DATA, OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION EXCHANGE MEDIA ON OR CONNECTED WITH THE SERVICE.

Valas Media shall not be liable for direct or indirect damages caused by a possible delay, a change or loss of a service, product or material transferred through the Service. Valas Media is not liable for direct or indirect damages caused by interruptions and disturbances including loss or delay of data or changes in data due to technical defects or maintenance. Further, Valas Media disclaims any liability for direct or indirect damages caused to you by harmful programs (viruses, worms or the like) or incorrect content in the Service. Valas Media bears no liability for damages caused by You or by a third party.

Valas Media's maximum liability for direct damages caused to you or your property is at all times limited to the amount paid by you for the use of the Service or part of it during the twelve months immediately preceding the event that gave reasons for the claim. Valas Media is never liable for any indirect or unforeseeable damages caused to you at any given circumstances.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain types of damages. Accordingly, some of the above disclaimers and limitations may not apply to you. To the extent that Valas Media may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any warranty or limit its liability as set forth herein, the scope of such warranty and the extent of the liability of Valas Media shall be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.

6. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Valas Media and its officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless from and against all damages, liabilities, costs, losses and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or resulting from: (i) your use of the Service or Materials; (ii) any actual or alleged breach by you of these Terms.

7. Modification of These Terms

Valas Media reserves the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update the terms and conditions of these Terms without prior notice. Modifications shall become effective immediately upon being posted at the Service. You are bound by any such modifications and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then current Terms to which you are bound. Your continued use of the Service or any webpage or feature available through Service after modifications are posted constitutes an acknowledgement and acceptance of these Terms and its modifications. If, at any time, you do not wish to accept these Terms, you may not use the Service.

8. Termination of Service

Valas Media reserves the right to stop offering and/or supporting the Service or a particular game or part of the Service at any time, at which point your license to use the Service or a part thereof will be automatically terminated. In such event, Valas Media shall not be required to provide refunds, benefits or other compensation to users in connection with such discontinued Services. Termination of your account can include disabling your access to the Service or any part thereof including any content you submitted or others submitted.
