All items for use within the Game may expire on the earlier of their stated expiration date, the termination or expiration of your Account, as a result of Game Software upgrades or other changes to the Game, or on the date Experiment 7 ceases to offer or support the Game. Experiment 7 reserves the right to refuse or cancel an order for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department.
Fees may be payable in U.S. Dollars, Euros, British Pounds Sterling, or such other currency as stated at the time of purchase, and are non-refundable unless expressly stated otherwise in the EULA. Failure to pay any such Fees will constitute a material breach of this EULA, and your Account may be immediately suspended or terminated at Experiment 7's discretion.
You are responsible for familiarizing yourself with the Fees in the Game, and for changes of Fees and/or payment terms. If a change is unacceptable to you, you may, as your sole and exclusive remedy, terminate the EULA and discontinue your use of the Game.
