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 Playvorite games is a service provided by Playvorite 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.

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 Playvorite 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 Playvorite.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 Playvorites sole and absolute discretion, or if the Services are no longer available.
