6. Payment for the Game

The Game generally is free to play. However, we reserve the right to charge fees to use the Game. We offer add-ons, enhancements, premium services, and other merchandise in connection with the Game, and we charge fees for these items. Your purchase of merchandise may be subject to other terms of sale, which will be described to you before you make your purchase.

If you register for a product or service that requires the payment of fees by you, the fees will be paid by you by credit card through a third-party service provider (such as Google, Amazon, or PayPal) upon your registration for such product or service. When you provide credit card information to a third-party service provider, you represent that you are the authorized user of the credit card and that you authorize the charges to your credit card for any purchased items. ALL FEES FOR OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART.

If you do not pay for a product or service as required, we will suspend your access to the product or service. If your credit card expires or otherwise declines payment, you will not have access to the product or service. To process your payments, you must provide the third-party service provider with certain personally identifiable information. In addition to these Terms of Use and our End-User License Agreement, the payment process will be subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of the applicable third-party service provider. IF YOU DISPUTE ANY CHARGES, YOU MUST RESOLVE THE DISPUTE WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER - WE WILL NOT REFUND ANY FEES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

You are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone else that uses your account, including your family or friends. If your account or a particular subscription is terminated or canceled, no refund will be granted.

We may change our billing methods at any time, and we will provide notice of any such change at least thirty (30) days advance. All changes will be posted as amendments to these Terms of Use, and you are responsible for reviewing amendments to these Terms of Use to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of your account after an amendment has been posted means that you accept such changes contained in the amendment. If any change is unacceptable to you, you should cancel your account and stop playing the Game, but we will not refund or pro rate any fees that may have accrued to your account before you cancel it.
