When using the Game, you may "purchase" and/or "unlock" access to various In-Game Virtual Goods ("Virtual Goods
") associated with your account, including:
- Levels; and
3.1.1. With Donator Tokens.
Every player with a valid, active account may participate in our "Donator Tokens" service offering, which is a redeemable currency system that operates like virtual currency. Donator Tokens can be purchased online through the Store
. You can use Donator Tokens to unlock and acquire access to certain Virtual Goods in-game.
3.2. What are my responsibilities relating to Virtual Goods?

Virtual Goods are sold or issued either individually or in bundles and the price may vary depending on the amount you purchase. As we feel it necessary, in our sole and absolute discretion, we may limit the total amount of Virtual Goods that may be purchased at any one time, or that may be held in your account in the aggregate.

We'll investigate your claim, and in doing so, may request some additional information from you to verify the transaction.
3.3. Do I "own" the Virtual Goods I unlock? (No. What you "unlock" is not the virtual good itself, but rather, a qualified right to access it in the Game.)
You have no ownership or other property interest in any of the Virtual Goods you unlock, regardless of whether you acquired access to those Virtual Goods using Donator Tokens or via Purchasing them directly from our Store
. Virtual Goods have no monetary value. You can’t redeem them for cash. You can’t obtain any refunds for purchasing Virtual Goods, except as expressly permitted by us.
