The users who have created an account on the Platform and other visitors of the Platform are herein referred to as “You”. The term “Users” for the purposes of these Terms shall be read as You.

These Terms shall apply fully to your use of this Platform. By using this Platform, you agree to accept all terms and conditions written in here. You must not use this Platform if you disagree with these Terms.

Minors or people below 18 years old using this Platform and any person below the age of 18 years availing the Services shall be deemed to have obtained parental consent to do so. If you are a parent or guardian and you provide your consent to your child's use of the Platform, you agree to be bound by these Terms in respect to their use of the Platform.

01. License to Use

Company hereby grants you the limited right to access, view and use the Platform only for the purposes of accessing, viewing or playing content, using various features of the Platform such as making video calls and chatting online, posting or submitting User Material, using the embedded link functions, placing store orders or for accessing information and Services.

Any rights not expressly granted to you herein are reserved by the Company.

02. Accounts

When using the Platform you may choose to, and in some instances, you will be required to, create an account with Company. If you do create an account with Company, you agree that you shall take all steps necessary to protect your login details and keep them secret.

In these terms, references to "login details" or "account" include your login details and account for any social network or platform that you may allow the Platform to interact with.

The Company will be entitled to assume that anyone logging into your account using your log in details is either you or someone logging in with your permission. 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 Company for any losses or harm that may result.

The Company will not be responsible to you for any loss that you suffer as a result of an unauthorized person accessing your account and/or using the Platform and Company accepts no responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from its unauthorized use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.

You understand that if you delete your account, or if Company deletes your account, you may lose access to any data previously associated with your account.

You acknowledge and agree that you shall have no ownership or other property interest in any account that you create while availing the Services.

Your account is personal to you and you are not entitled to transfer your account to any other person.

03. Virtual Items

The Platform also provides a service where it shall enable Users to earn Virtual Items based on the completion of certain milestones and other conditions as specified on the Platform.

Company reserves the right to suspend or deny, in its sole discretion, your access to all or any portion of the Website. This license is limited to personal and non-commercial uses by you. Any rights not expressly granted to you herein are reserved to Company.

“Virtual Items” shall include virtual currency, including without limitation virtual coins, tokens, and other virtual in-game items that can be exclusively used on the Platform to purchase various items that are listed on the Platform.

You may also use “real” money to purchase the Virtual Items and earn a limited license and right to use the Virtual Items on the Platform. Please note that when you purchase Virtual Items, the Company is not a party to the transaction and your purchase will be governed by the third-party platform’s payment terms and conditions. Please review the platform’s terms of service for additional information.

For purchasing any Virtual Items, your order will represent an offer to us to obtain a limited license and right to use the Virtual Item(s) that will be accepted by us when we accept payment. At that point, your limited license to the relevant Virtual Item(s) shall begin. Although you may transfer the Virtual Item(s) to any other user on the Platform, We do not promote the same and you shall be doing this at your sole discretion. The Company shall not be liable in the event of any unauthorized transfer of Virtual Items from your account.

You are not allowed to sublicense, trade, sell, or attempt to sell Virtual Items for “real” money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of the Platform. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void.

You understand that while you may earn or purchase Virtual Items on our Platform, you do not legally “own” the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Any “virtual currency” balance shown in your account does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value, but instead constitutes a measurement of the extent of your limited license.

In the event that the Company is made aware of any illegal or fraudulent activity being done by any User, we reserve the right to effectively terminate that account. In such an event, all unused Virtual Items shall be forfeited and all transactions shall be deemed null and void.

You acknowledge that the company is not required to provide a refund for any reason, and that you will not receive real 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 our Platform or any other sites or platforms where we offer our services.

Purchases to acquire a limited license and right to use Virtual Items are non-refundable to the fullest extent allowed by law. Company reserves the right to make the final decision for all matters regarding any kind of refund.
