Terms of Service

1. LICENSE

1.1. Governing Agreement

The terms of this agreement ("Terms of Service" or “Terms” or “Terms and Conditions”) govern the relationship between you and Poker Card Games Limted (PokerAce.com) (hereinafter "PokerAce" or "Us" or "We") regarding your use of PokerAce’s social games and related services, which include applications for mobile devices and PokerAce branded websites (the "Service"). In this agreement, "PokerAce" means Poker Card Games Limited, 25 Harley Street, London, W1G9BR, England. “PokerAce” includes Affiliates, which shall mean subsidiaries, parent companies, joint ventures and other corporate entities under common ownership.

1.2. Privacy Policy

Use of the Service is also governed by PokerAces's <PRIVACY POLICY>, By creating an account or accessing or using the Service you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Service and consent to the collection, use and storage of your information as outlined in PokerAce’s Privacy Policy.

1.3. Updates to the Terms of Service and PokerAce Privacy Policy

PokerAce reserves the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms of Service and its Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended Terms on or within the Service. You may also be given additional notice, such as an e-mail message or messaging within the Service, of any changes. You will be deemed to have accepted such changes by continuing to use the Service. Except as otherwise stated, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted. PokerAce may also revise other policies, codes or rules at any time, and the new versions will be available atwww.pokerace.com or in the Service. No amendment to the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy shall apply to any dispute of which PokerAce had actual notice before the date of the amendment.

This agreement may not be otherwise amended except in a writing hand signed by you and Us. For purposes of this provision, "writing" does not include an e-mail message and a signature does not include an electronic signature.

If at any point you do not agree to any portion of the then-current version of our Terms of Service, the PokerAce Privacy Policy, or any other PokerAce policy, rules or codes of conduct relating to your use of the Service, your license to use the Service shall immediately terminate and you must immediately stop using the Service.

1.4. Grant of a Limited License to Use the Service

Subject to your agreement and continuing compliance with these Terms of Service and any other relevant PokerAce policies, PokerAce grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable limited license subject to the limitations in Sections 1.5-1.9 to access and use the Service via the Facebook or other similar platform, or a mobile device solely for your own non-commercial entertainment purposes. You agree not to use the Service for any other purpose.

You understand that while at times you may “earn” "buy" or "purchase" (a) virtual currency, including but not limited to virtual coins, cash, tokens, or points, all for use in the Service; or (b) virtual in-game items (together with virtual currency, "Virtual Items"); these real world terms are only being used as shorthand. You do not in fact "own" the Virtual Items and the amounts of any Virtual Item do not refer to any credit balance of real currency or its equivalent. Rather, you may purchase a limited license to use the Service, including software programs that occasionally manifest themselves as these items. The purchase and sale of the limited license referred to in these Terms of Service is a completed transaction upon receipt of your direct payment or a third party virtual currency like Facebook Credits. Any "virtual currency" 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.

2. FEES AND PURCHASE TERMS

2.1. Purchases

In the Service you may purchase, with "real world" money, a license to use Virtual Items and or other goods or services. You may also obtain a license to use Virtual Items by redeeming third party virtual currency, such as Facebook Credits.

PURCHASES OR REDEMPTIONS OF THIRD PARTY VIRTUAL CURRENCY TO ACQUIRE A LICENSE TO USE VIRTUAL ITEMS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

You can license Virtual Items by visiting the purchase page in one of our games, providing your billing information, confirming the particulars of your purchase and re-affirming your agreement to these Terms. If you purchase Facebook Credits from Facebook, you are agreeing to Facebook’s Payment Terms and PokerAce is not a party to the transaction. If you purchase Credits from Apple, you are agreeing to Apple’s Payment Terms and PokerAce is not a party to the transaction.

For Virtual Items, your order will represent an offer to us to purchase a license for the relevant service(s) which will be accepted by us when We make the Virtual Items available in your account for you to use in our games or debit your credit card, whichever comes first.

Your license to Virtual Items for use in PokerAce games is a service provided by PokerAce that commences upon acceptance by PokerAce of your purchase or redemption of third party virtual currency. By ordering a license to use Virtual Items you agree and accept that PokerAce will provide it to you promptly following completion of your purchase.

2.2. Payment of Fees

You agree to pay all fees and applicable taxes incurred by you or anyone using an Account registered to you. PokerAce may revise the pricing for the goods and services it licenses to you through the Service at any time.
