GAIJIN HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL FURTHER REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE.
Without limiting the foregoing, Gaijin makes no warranty that: the Service and products will meet your requirements; the Service and products will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; the results that may be obtained from the use of the Service or materials will be effective, accurate, or reliable; the quality of any Service or products purchased or accessible by you through the Site will meet your expectations; any errors in the software obtained from or used through the Site, or any defects in the Site, its Service or products, will be corrected.
Gaijin is the owner, licensee or a holder of necessary rights to use all of the content that appears in the Service. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, you agree that you have no right or title in or to any content that appears in the Service, including without limitation the Virtual Items appearing or originating in any Gaijin game, whether “earned” in a game or “purchased” from Gaijin, or any other attributes associated with an Account or stored on the Service.
Gaijin prohibits and does not recognize any purported transfers of Virtual Items effectuated outside of the Service, or the purported sale, gift or trade in the "real world" of anything that appears or originates in the Service, unless otherwise expressly authorized by Gaijin in writing. Accordingly, you may not sublicense, trade, sell or attempt to sell in-game Virtual Items for "real" money, or exchange Virtual Items for value of any kind outside of a game, without Gaijin’s written permission. Any such transfer or attempted transfer is prohibited and void, and will subject your Account to termination.
In the Service you may purchase, with “real world” currency a license to use Virtual Items and or other goods or Services. You may also obtain a license to use Virtual Items by redeeming third party virtual currency, such as Facebook Credits.
Purchases or redemptions of third party virtual currency to acquire a license to use virtual items are non-refundable.
You can license Virtual Items by visiting the purchase page in one of our games, providing your billing information, confirming the particulars of your purchase and re-affirming your agreement to these Terms. When you purchase a license to Virtual Items from our Service, We may send you a confirmatory e-mail that will contain details of the items you have ordered. Please check that the details in the confirmatory e-mail are correct as soon as possible and maintain a copy of it for your records. Gaijin keeps records of transactions in order to deal with any subsequent queries. Facebook Credits that you purchased or otherwise obtained from Facebook are subject to Facebook’s terms and conditions and Gaijin is not a party to those agreements or transaction relating thereto.
For Virtual Items, your order will represent an offer to us to purchase a license for the relevant service(s) which will be accepted by Gaijin when Gaijin makes the Virtual Items available on your account for you to use in our games or debit your credit card, whichever comes first.
Your license to Virtual Items for use in Gaijin games is a service provided by Gaijin that commences upon acceptance by Gaijin of your purchase or redemption of third party virtual currency (e.g. Facebook Credits). By ordering a license to use Virtual Items you agree and accept that Gaijin will provide you with the Virtual Items upon completion of the purchase transaction. If you reside in the European Union and you purchase a product or service from Gaijin, you may have the right to withdraw from a purchase within fourteen calendar days, commencing on the day after the date of purchase (the “Cooling Off Period"”). However, you lose your right of withdrawal if the performance of the services commenced prior to the last day of the Cooling Off Period. Accordingly, please note that if you purchase a license to use Virtual Items from Gaijin, your right of withdrawal is lost as the performance of our services begins promptly once your purchase transaction is completed.
