7. VIRTUAL ITEMS.
7.1 As part of and to enhance your use and enjoyment of the Games you may be able to obtain additional features that form part of the experience of the Games (“Virtual Items”). Virtual Items may be either "earned" in a Game (for example, by watching an advertisement) or "purchased" from Fusebox.
7.2 Virtual Items are gameplay features of the Games, they have no cash or real world value, they are not redeemable or exchangeable for anything with a real world value and they can be used as part of the Games only, in accordance with this EULA.
7.3 Purchases of Virtual Items are subject to this EULA and the terms of any third party app distribution platform through which your purchase is made. Purchases are made via Apple or Google and not via Fusebox. To the extent that this EULA conflicts with such agreement as exists between you and the relevant third party in respect of any purchase of Virtual Items, the terms of your agreement with the third party app distribution platform shall prevail.
7.4 To cancel a purchase of any Virtual Items you should contact the platform through which you made that purchase. If you cannot use any Virtual Item due to an error or fault, you may still be charged. If this happens, please contact Fusebox as set out below and we will endeavour to rectify the issue and if we are unable to do so you may be entitled to a refund via the platform through which you made that purchase (i.e. Google or Apple).
7.5 Virtual Items that may be purchased (either through Google or Apple) are advertised in the Game so that you may offer to purchase them for the price stated in the manner described below.
7.6 It is a condition and fundamental term of this EULA and your use of the Games that you may not and must not buy, sell, barter, swap, exchange, trade, lend, rent or otherwise deal in any way with any aspect of the Games (including any third party account you use in relation to the Games) or any Virtual Item outside of the Games or in any way other than as expressly provided above, namely that certain Virtual Items may only be exchanged for certain other designated Virtual Items in and as part of the Games only.
7.7 Fusebox may manage, vary, regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items in its sole discretion, with or without notice (including not supplying Virtual Items if it is reasonable to do so). Fusebox shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that Fusebox exercises such rights.
7.8 When you submit, or anyone using your device submits, a request to purchase Virtual Items you are offering to purchase them for the price stated and our acceptance of that offer shall only occur once we make the Virtual Items available to you, prior to which your order may be declined for any reason.
7.9 Please notify Fusebox immediately if you dispute a transaction involving Virtual Items or believe that any transaction is unauthorised.
7.10 Your statutory rights are unaffected by this EULA.
8. Consumer Rights.
8.1 These terms above shall not limit any rights you might have as a consumer that may not be excluded under applicable law.
8.2 Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to consider an alternative dispute resolution provider. In addition, please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
