4) Charges and Billing
In some cases, you can use the balance in your Steam account, iTunes account, Google Play account, or other such service; credit or debit card, PayPal, Mobile Carrier or other similar accounts (each referred to herein as “Payment Information”) to pay for games, virtual currency, upgrades, and/or other Services.

You are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your account, including your family or friends.
5) Links to Third Party Sites
We may provide links on the Services to third party websites, or vendors who may invite you to participate in a promotional offer in return for receiving optional Services and/or upgrades (such as in-game currency). Some of these web sites may charge separate fees, which are not included in any fees that you may pay to Grab. Any separate charges or obligations you incur in your dealings with these third parties are your responsibility. We make no representation or warranty regarding any content, goods and/or services provided by any third party even if linked from one of our Services, and will not be liable for any claim relating thereto. The linked sites are not under the control of Grab and may collect data or solicit personal information from you. We are not responsible for their content, business practices or privacy policies, or for the collection, use or disclosure of any information those sites may collect. We are providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Grab of these linked sites.
6) User Content
a) The Service may invite you to chat or participate in blogs, message boards, online forums and other functionality and may provide you with the opportunity to create, submit, post, display, transmit, perform, publish, distribute or broadcast content and materials to Grab and/or to or via the Service, including, without limitation, text, writings, software, video, music, sound-clips, likenesses, photographs, graphics, comments, suggestions or personally identifiable information or other material (collectively “User Content”). Any material you transmit to Grab will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.

e) Grab has no obligation to accept, display, review, monitor, or maintain any User Content. We have the right to delete User Content from the Service without notice for any reason at any time. Grab may move, re-format, edit, alter, distort, remove or refuse to exploit User Content without notice to you and without liability; provided, however, that Grab reserves the right to treat User Content as content stored at the direction of users for which Grab will not exercise editorial control except to enforce the rights of third parties and the Content Restrictions set forth below when violations are brought to Grab’s attention.

7) In-Game Currencies/Goods
a) The Service may include a virtual, in-game currency (“Virtual Currency”) including, but not limited to coins, cash, or points, that may be purchased from Grab for “real world” money if you are a legal adult in your country of residence. The Service may also include virtual, in-game digital items (“Virtual Goods”) that may be purchased from Grab for “real world” money or for Virtual Currency. Regardless of the terminology used, Virtual Currency and Virtual Goods may never be redeemed for “real world” money, goods or other items of monetary value from Grab or any other party.
b) Other than a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use the Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency in the Service, you have no right or title in or to any such Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency appearing or originating in the Service, or any other attributes associated with use of the Service or stored within the Service.
c) Grab has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate such Virtual Currency and/or Virtual Goods as it sees fit in its sole discretion, and Grab shall have no liability to you or anyone for the exercise of such rights.
d) Transfers of Virtual Currencies and Virtual Goods are strictly prohibited except where explicitly authorized within the Service. Outside of the game, you may not buy or sell any Virtual Currency or Virtual Goods for “real world” money or otherwise exchange items for value. Any attempt to do so is in violation of these Terms and may result in a lifetime ban from Grab Service and possible legal action.
e) You agree that all sales of Virtual Goods and Currencies are final. No refunds will be given, except in our sole and absolute discretion. All Virtual Goods and Currencies are forfeited if your account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Grab’s sole and absolute discretion, or if Grab discontinues providing the Service.
We reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account or your access to any or all of the Services at any time, for any reason and we have the right to terminate your account for what is, in our sole discretion and determination, deemed to be a violation or breach of these Terms of Service.
In the event your account or access to the Services is terminated, suspended or canceled, whether by you or by Grab, you will not be entitled to any refund nor will any credits or in-game items (e.g., points in an online game) be credited to you or converted to cash or other form of reimbursement, and you will have no further access to your account or anything associated with it (such as points or in-game items). If your account is terminated or suspended by us, we also have the right to terminate or suspend any of your other accounts.
9) The Services are Available “AS-IS”
The Services are provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis and we do not warrant that the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the Services will be free of viruses or other harmful components. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Your access and use of the Services is at your own risk. We cannot assume responsibility for any damages suffered by you, including, but not limited to, loss of data, game play, items or characters from delays, non-deliveries, errors, system down time, misdeliveries or service interruptions caused by us, or by your or by any other user’s errors and/or omissions.
10) Limitation of Liability
GRAB AND ITS LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGE OR LOSS OF ANY KIND RESULTING FROM (A) THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION; (B) THE LOSS OR DAMAGE TO CHARACTERS, ACCOUNTS, STATISTICS, INVENTORIES OR USER PROFILE INFORMATION; OR (C) INTERRUPTIONS OF SERVICES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ISP DISRUPTIONS, SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE FAILURES OR ANY OTHER EVENT WHICH MAY RESULT IN A LOSS OF DATA OR DISRUPTION OF SERVICES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL GRAB OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the limitations above may not apply to you.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Grab harmless from and against any claim, liability, loss, injury, damage, cost, or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Grab arising out of or from your access and use of the Services, your violation of these Terms or any Content posted, transmitted or provided by you or on your behalf.
13) Waiver and Severability
The failure of Grab to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
14) Injunctive Relief
You acknowledge that the rights granted and obligations made hereunder to Grab are of a unique and irreplaceable nature, the loss of which shall irreparably harm Grab and which cannot be replaced by monetary damages alone so that Grab shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief (without the obligations of posting any bond or surety) in the event of any breach or anticipatory breach by you.
15) Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions. All claims, legal proceedings or litigation arising in connection with the Services will be brought solely in Los Angeles County, California, and you consent to the jurisdiction of and venue in such courts.
16) Other Jurisdictions
Grab operates and controls this application from its offices in the United States. Grab makes no representation that this application is appropriate or available in other locations. The information provided on this application is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Grab to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.
17) Complaints and Notices
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides copyright owners who believe that their rights under the United States Copyright Act have been infringed by acts of third parties over the Internet with ways to protect their rights. If you believe that your copyrighted work has been copied without your authorization and is available in this game in a way that may constitute copyright infringement, you can provide notice of your claim to Grab’s Designated Agent listed below. For your notice to be effective, it must include the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property right that is allegedly infringed;
- A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed upon;
- A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located in this game;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Grab to contact the complaining party, such as address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address at which the complaining party can be contacted;
- A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
18) Modification of Terms
We reserve the right to modify the Terms at any time. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date those terms will be effective. We will attempt to give you advance notice of any substantive changes, but reserve the right to make such modifications immediately if required. Your use of the Services after any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Services. It is your responsibility to check to determine if there have been changes to these Terms and to review such changes.
