The Service may include digital items, such as digital currency (“Coins”) or power-ups, (collectively, “Digital Items”), which may be purchased from us for real world money, where permitted by law. Digital Items available to you and the price of Digital Items may be altered at any time, without notice. Upon acquiring Digital Items, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferrable (except to the extent expressly permitted) right to use such Digital Items only in conjunction with the Service for which such Digital Items were acquired.

You acknowledge and agree that there is no value to Digital Items or time you spend using the Service, for which you will not be compensated under any circumstances regardless of whether or not you are able to access the Service. We are not responsible for repairing or replacing any Digital Items lost for any reason whatsoever including, but not limited to, suspension of the Service, technical issues or as a result of a third party.

If you create Digital Items for sale through the Services, Mod Studio may permit you to set the price in Coins but will control all other aspects.

If you set a Mod Game as private, other users of the Service cannot see User Content contained within the Mod Game but such User Content is visible and licensed to Mod Studio as set forth above.

You acknowledge that we are merely acting as a passive conduit for the creation and distribution of User Content and are not undertaking any obligation or liability relating to any contents or activities on the Service or User Content.
