4. Additional Terms For Using Our App, Including Subscription Terms and Advertising

4.1 If you download our app, the ways in which you can use the app may also be controlled by the Apple App Store's and Google Play Store rules and policies.

4.2 Our app requires a Smart Phone Device and an up-to-date OS system. When you download our app we are giving you personally the right to use the app. You may not transfer this right to someone else, whether for money, for anything else or for free. If you sell any device on which the app is installed, you must remove the app from it.

4.3 You may choose to subscribe to our app. Subscription is not compulsory but allows you to unlock additional content as described to you within the app when electing to subscribe. You will be required to provide us with certain personal data when becoming a subscriber as described in more detail in our Privacy Notice. You can, if you choose, also purchase in-app enhancements to add to your game play. These “In-App Enhancements” may enable you to access additional content within the app. “Virtual Currency” is currency that you can use to make purchases of In-App Enhancements. Additional terms applicable to In-App Enhancements and Virtual Currency (collectively “Virtual Items”) are set out in paragraph 5.

4.4 Whilst access to the app itself is free, if you choose to subscribe and/or purchase Virtual Items you will be required to pay subscription fees or fees to purchase such Virtual Items (the “Fees”). Whether you are required to pay any Fees will be communicated to you prior to accessing such content. In the case of Fees relating to subscriptions, the Fees are payable in advance for the current subscription period (such subscription periods being detailed in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store (as applicable)). You will select the subscription period for which you wish to access such content and pay the appropriate Fees accordingly. All payments by credit or debit card, whether for subscriptions or Virtual Items, are subject to checks by us, the applicable platform provider, your card issuer and any payment provider.

4.5 Once you access the content in question for which Fees are due, your 14-day right to cancel under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, ends. Please refer to Apple’s and/or Google’s terms and conditions for details of their refund policy generally and make any refund request directly to Apple via your Apple account or Google via your Google Play account (as applicable).

4.6 Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage your subscription from your iTunes account or Google Play account (as applicable). Your account will be charged when the purchase is confirmed. If any free trial is offered and you subscribe before your free trial ends, the rest of your free trial will be forfeited as soon as your purchase is confirmed.

4.7 We are not a payment provider or a ‘merchant’ for payment and may use third party payment providers such as Stripe to collect Fees. In such instances, we are not party to any agreement between you and the payment provider and are not liable for any claim or liability in relation to payment provision services. You may be bound by the payment provider’s terms which may be different to these terms. Payment providers may decide whether you are suitable to use their services and we are not liable for such decisions.

4.8 If any payment due to us remains unpaid for more than 7 days after it becomes due and payable, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the app and/or its content until payment is received. This includes, for example, if a recurring instalment payment of the Fees is refused by your bank or credit card provider.

4.9 From time to time we may automatically update our app to improve performance, enhance functionality, reflect changes to the operating system or address security issues. Alternatively, we may ask you to update our app for these reasons. If you choose not to install such updates or if you opt out of automatic updates you may not be able to continue using the app.

4.10 We may, subject to obtaining your consent to the same (as described in more detail in our Privacy Notice) serve you advertising that we consider you will be interested in (personalised advertising). If you don’t consent we will continue to serve you adverts but such adverts will not be tailored to you. We may, in future, also allow you to avoid seeing adverts completely by paying fees. We will update these terms accordingly in such instance.

4.11 The app will always work with the current or previous version of the operating system (as it may be updated from time to time) and materially match the description of it provided to you when you bought it.

4.12 If you download or stream our app onto any phone or other device not owned by you, you must have the owner's permission to do so. You will be responsible for complying with these terms, whether or not you own the phone or other device.

4.13 Some of our content includes phone numbers, e-mail addresses, newspaper articles and video content all of which is fictional in nature. If you choose to click on links, send e-mails to those e-mail addresses and/or dial any phone number featured in the app we will not be liable to you for any costs incurred by you as a result. For example, you may be charged at your local rate for dialling any phone number featured in any of our content. Some of our content may not always be suitable for all users and, where appropriate, we will advise you of this before such content is displayed.

4.14 You agree that you will:

5. Virtual Items

5.2 We may make Virtual Currency available to you to use within the app to purchase In-App Enhancements. You can obtain Virtual Currency by purchasing them for ‘real’ money, this is what we refer to as an ‘in-app purchase’.

5.3 Our in-app service enabling you to acquire and use Virtual Items is subject to the following terms:

(a) subject to paragraph 5.3(d), Virtual Items are not redeemable and not refundable (i.e. ‘use them or lose them)’ (for example, if you purchase Virtual Items you will not get the ‘real’ money you paid for them back as Virtual Items have no real monetary value);

(b) any Virtual Currency balance shown in your use of the app, or within your Apple App Store account or Google Play account or online wallet relating to our app, does not constitute a real-world balance or reflect any stored value that you can cash-out of the app for ‘real’ money – it simply measures the extent of your limited licence to use that Virtual Currency to acquire In-App Enhancements for use within the app;

(c) Virtual Items are personal to you and non-transferable i.e. only you can use them and you cannot gift, sell, license, redeem, assign, transfer or otherwise dispose of them to any other person;

(d) your right to use Virtual Items ends if Apple, Google or any other platform provider suspends or closes your Apple App Store account, Google Play account or your account on other platforms pursuant to these terms, or their terms, or if we close or suspend your account with us; and

(e) your right to use Virtual Currency expires 2 years after the date on which you purchased or earned the Virtual Items unless we decide, in our sole discretion, to provide you with a refund or applicable law entitles you to a refund for any unused Virtual Currency.

5.4 The price payable by you for Virtual Items (the “Price”) is the price indicated within the app at the time you make your purchase. If you are resident in the European Union, the Price includes any applicable value added or similar sales tax. We reserve the right to change the Price and specifications for any Virtual Item at any time for any reason. For information purposes a list of in-app purchases of Virtual Items you can make and their prices can be found within the app.

5.5 You acknowledge that full freedom from errors and incompleteness is impossible to achieve with respect to computer software and the operation of the app. If you become aware that the operation of the app and any Virtual Item contains any error, or is incomplete, you shall promptly notify us by e-mail to support@unrd.co. You undertake to refrain from taking any advantage whatsoever, either knowingly or otherwise, of that error or incompleteness and we reserve the right to recover any such advantage that you do gain from such error or incompleteness, as well as all associated costs, damages and expenses in making such recovery.

5.6 Virtual Items may be made available to you as a result of a promotion that we offer. Any such promotion may have additional terms and conditions.
