7. Purchases

In App Purchases: We may offer products and services for purchase (“in app purchases”) through Google Play, iTunes or other application platforms authorised by Ideapot (each, a “Software Store”). If you decide to make an in app purchase, you will be asked to provide details for your account with your Software Store (“your IAP Account”), and your IAP Account will be charged for the in app purchase according to the terms disclosed to you when you did the purchase as well as the general terms for in app purchases that apply to your IAP Account. According to where you live, some Software Stores may charge you sales tax. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription through an in app purchase, your IAP Account will continue to be billed for the subscription until you cancel. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. If you do not wish your subscription to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, you will need to log in to your IAP Account and follow instructions to cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us or if you have deleted our Services applications from your device. Deleting your account on our Services or deleting our Services applications from your device does not cancel your subscription; Ideapot will retain all funds charged to your IAP Account until you cancel your subscription through your IAP Account.

Online Purchases: If you decide to make a purchase through our Services online, you agree to pay Ideapot all charges at the prices displayed to you for the services you’ve selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your payments, and you authorize Ideapot to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”). Ideapot may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. If you initiate a chargeback or otherwise reverse a payment made with your Payment Method, Ideapot may terminate your account immediately in its sole discretion.

If you purchase a subscription through our Services online, your subscription will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing, until you cancel. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please log in to your account in our Services and follow the instructions. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term, and your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.

You can edit your Payment Method information by going in your account on our Services. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to insufficient funds, expiration, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for your debit or credit card as provided by your debit or credit card issuer. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.

Virtual Items: You may be able to purchase, with “real world” money, a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use “virtual items”, included but not limited to in app Virtual Coins (collectively, “Virtual Items”). You are only allowed to purchase Virtual Items from us or our authorized partners through our Services and not in any other way. Virtual Items represent a limited license right governed by this Agreement. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, Virtual Items obtained by you are licensed to you, and you acknowledge that no title or ownership in or to Virtual Items is being transferred or assigned to you. This Agreement should not be construed as a sale of any rights in Virtual Items. Any Virtual Item 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 license. Virtual Items do not incur fees for non-use, however, the license granted to you in Virtual Items will terminate in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, when we cease providing our Services or your account is otherwise closed or terminated. Ideapot, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to charge fees for the right to access or use Virtual Items and/ or may distribute Virtual Items with or without charge. Ideapot may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items at any time. Ideapot shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that Ideapot exercises any such rights. The transfer of Virtual Items is prohibited, and you shall not sell, redeem or otherwise transfer Virtual Items to any person or entity. Virtual Items may only be redeemed through our Services. ALL PURCHASES AND REDEMPTIONS OF VIRTUAL ITEMS MADE THROUGH OUR SERVICES ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE. The provision of Virtual Items for use in our Services is a service provided by Ideapot that commences immediately upon the acceptance of your purchase of such Virtual Items. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IDEAPOT 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.

Refunds: Generally, all charges for purchases are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. We may make an exception if a refund for a subscription offering is requested within fourteen days of the transaction date, or if the laws applicable in your jurisdiction provide for refunds.

For subscribers residing in the EU or European Economic Area, in accordance with local law, you are entitled to a full refund during the 14 days after the subscription begins. Please note that this 14-day period commences when the subscription starts.
