This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the Services, as permitted by these Terms.

Third Party Services
Our Services contain links to content, products and services of third parties (“Third Party Services”). These Third Party Services are not under our control, and we are not responsible for their content, products or services, performance, operation, availability, business practices or policies. We are providing these Third Party Services to you only as a convenience but we do not imply any endorsement or recommendation of their content, products, or services, or of any association of us with such third parties. If you access any of these Third Party Services, you do this entirely at your own risk and any charges or obligations you incur in your dealings with these third parties, are your responsibility.
We charge fees for the use of our Services and for certain products and features, which are described in the Services, those specific products and features, and/or these Terms. These fees are subject to change at any time. We (or, in most cases, the App Provider) will charge your payment account or credit card for such purchases. By selecting these products, services or features, you are agreeing to pay the applicable fees assessed to your account. These fees do not include charges from your mobile carrier (like for any data plans), which you are responsible for paying. For our subscription-based services, we will charge your account at the beginning of each month and monthly thereafter until you cancel. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month to avoid the billing of the next month’s fees to your account. You will not receive a refund for any partial month cancellation.
The Services include access to virtual, digital items and goods (collectively, “Virtual Assets”), which can be purchased from us using “real world” money, if you are of legal age in your country of residence. You agree that all sales of Virtual Assets are final. No refunds will be given or exchanges made for cash, except in our sole and absolute discretion. You agree that all Virtual Assets purchased by you are forfeited if your account is terminated or if we discontinue providing those portions of the Services. We have the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate any or all Virtual Assets as we see fit. Prices and availability of Virtual Assets are subject to change without notice. We will not be liable to you or anyone else for the exercise of these rights.
Limited License. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we (and/or our licensors) grant you a limited license to use the Virtual Assets within the Services. Additional rights or licenses may be granted or authorized with certain Virtual Assets. Other than the rights explicitly granted or authorized under that license, you have no other right, title, or interest in or to any such Virtual Assets, or any other attributes associated with the use of the Virtual Assets stored within the Services.
No Transfer. You understand that while you may "buy" or "purchase" Virtual Assets, you do not in fact own the Virtual Assets. You are purchasing a license to use the item or content that represents Virtual Assets for the Services. Virtual Assets do not have any value outside the Services and do not represent a stored value. Transfers of Virtual Assets are strictly prohibited except where explicitly authorized within the Services. Regardless of the terminology used, however, you may not buy or sell any Virtual Assets outside the Services or exchange or redeem them for “real world” money, goods or other items of monetary value from us or any other person. Doing so or attempting to do so will be a violation of these Terms.
Account Deactivation and Termination
By You. You can deactivate or terminate your account at any time through your account settings or by sending us a written request to deactivate or terminate your account.
By Us. We reserve the right to deactivate or terminate your account or suspend your access to your account, if you do not pay the applicable fees on time or if we believe you have violated or breached any of your obligations in these Terms.
Effect of Deactivation and/or Termination. If your account is deactivated, you will not be able to access your Content or use the Services. You acknowledge and agree that in such a case, we are not obligated to provide you with a copy of or make your Content available to you, unless you reactivate your account in accordance with these Terms. If your account is deactivated, unless your subscription plan provided for a longer period, your Content will be stored for up to 30 days, however, we make no guarantee that any (or all) of your Content will be preserved or recoverable, if you do not re-activate your account within that time. We reserve the right to charge a reactivation fee if your account is deactived. If your account is terminated or your access to our Services is suspended because you violated these Terms, you will not be entitled to any refund of any fees nor will any Virtual Assets or fees be credited or reimbursed to you in any form (whether in virtual form or “real world” form) and upon termination, you will have no further right to access the Services, any of your Content or your account.

Limitation of Liability
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGE, COST, LIABILITY, OR LOSS OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING LOSS OR DAMAGE TO YOUR ACCOUNT, YOUR CONTENT, OR OTHER DATA OR INFORMATION, OR PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR OUR SOFTWARE, FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING INTERRUPTIONS CAUSED BY (A) SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE FAILURES OR ISP DISRUPTIONS, (B) DELAYS, NON-DELIVERIES, ERRORS, SYSTEM DOWN TIME, MISDELIVERIES OR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS CAUSED BY US, (C) YOUR CONTENT OR ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU, ANY OTHER USER, OR OTHERWISE DISCLOSED ON THE SERVICES, (D) ANY VIRTUAL ASSETS, OR (E) YOUR OR ANY OTHER USER'S ERRORS OR OMISSIONS.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, OUR SERVICES, SOFTWARE, OR ANY CONTENT OR VIRTUAL ASSETS, EVEN IF INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU RELATING TO THESE SERVICES FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID FOR THE SERVICES IN THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE FIRST CLAIM GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless from any claim, liability, loss, injury, damage, cost, or expense (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by us arising out of or relating to (a) your use of the Services (other than in accordance with these Terms), or (b) your Content, and in either case, including any violation or breach of any provision in these Terms or any violation of any rights of a third party.
These Terms may be amended by us from time to time. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will provide notice to you, such as by posting the revised Terms or sending you a notice through the Services or your account. Your continued use of the Services after the changes go into effect will constitute your agreement to such changes. If you object to any change, your sole recourse is to terminate your account and cease using the Services.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding your use of our Services, which supersede and replace any prior written or oral agreements regarding the foregoing. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision in these Terms is not a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision in these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will continue, unimpaired, and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. The rights or obligations to use the Services are personal to you and are not assignable, and any such attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect. These Terms will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Washington, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that would require the application of the law of a different state or jurisdiction.
