10. Purchases.

Generally. CannaMates may offer products and services for purchase (“in app purchases”) through Paypal or other payment platforms authorized by CannaMates. If you choose to make a purchase, you may be asked to confirm your purchase with the payment provider, and your method of payment will be charged at the prices displayed to you for the service(s) you’ve selected as well as any sales or similar taxes that may be necessary on your payments, and you authorize CannaMates or the third party account, as applicable, to charge you.

Auto-Renewal. If you purchase an auto-recurring periodic subscription, your Payment Method 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 access your third party account (or Account Settings on CannaMates) and follow instructions to cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us or if you have deleted the CannaMates application from your device. Deleting your account on CannaMates or deleting the CannaMates application from your device does not cancel your subscription; CannaMates will retain all funds charged to your Payment Method until you cancel your subscription on CannaMates or the third party account, as applicable. 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.

Additional Terms that apply if you pay CannaMates directly with your Payment Method. If you pay CannaMates directly, CannaMates 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, CannaMates may terminate your account immediately in its sole discretion.

If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, 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 credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit 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. From time to time, you may be able to purchase, a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, revocable license to use “virtual items,” (collectively, “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 CannaMates ceases providing the Service or your account is otherwise closed or terminated. CannaMates, 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. CannaMates may manage, regulate, control, modify or eliminate Virtual Items at any time. CannaMates shall have no liability to you or any third party in the event that CannaMates exercises any such rights. Virtual Items may only be redeemed through the Service. ALL PURCHASES AND REDEMPTIONS OF VIRTUAL ITEMS MADE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE. The provision of Virtual Items for use in the Service is a service that commences immediately upon the acceptance of your purchase of such Virtual Items. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT CannaMates 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.
