18. Sunset

What happens when a game is shut down?

From time to time, we may take the decision to cease publishing one of our games and remove the game from all platforms and app stores so that it is no longer downloadable (we refer to the date that this occurs as the “Sunset Date”).

How will I know when a game is Sunsetting?

We will always try to provide you a reasonable amount of notice of the anticipated Sunset Date for a game, whether this notice occurs as an in-game pop-up and/or official announcement by Green Horse Games on the relevant support page for the game or GHG’s social media channels. Where the game is available on the Facebook platform, we will announce the Sunset Date on the game’s Facebook community page. Any announcement will explain the impending closure of the game on the Sunset Date and urge all players to stop making any in-game purchases.

Can I get a refund on my in-game purchases?

You will be entitled to a full refund for any in-app items purchased in the one (1) month period leading up to the Sunset Date. All refund requests must be made through the relevant app store or by opening a ticket with the Green Horse Games support team. Please note, you only have thirty (30) days after the Sunset Date of a game to make your claim, otherwise you will lose your entitlement to any refund. The reason for this is to ensure that we can abide by applicable Data Protection laws and delete all personal data collected from the game from our servers and database. Please visit the Privacy Policy page for more information about your personal data (https://www.greenhorsegames.com/privacy-policy).

As is standard for such games, bots may be used if there are no real-life players available, in instances of low connectivity or in the event of other technical constraints so that we can ensure smooth and enjoyable gameplay for our users. Further, there may be a use of bots for first-time players to ensure the best introduction to our game offering.

Green Horse Games Virtual Items Terms and Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions ("Virtual Items Terms") carefully before purchasing any virtual items, benefits, unlockables, gameplay features, energy, gold or other in-game currency, in each case, available through or otherwise in relation to our Services (together "Virtual Items"). By directly or indirectly purchasing any Virtual Items, you agree to be bound by these Virtual Items Terms and the Terms. These Virtual Items Terms are in addition to the Terms and if there is a conflict between the Virtual Items Terms and the Terms, the Virtual Items Terms shall apply.

1. When do these Virtual Items Terms apply?

These Virtual Items Terms cover your purchase and use of Virtual Items. Please be aware that a number of our Services have more than one type of in-game currency. If this is the case, there will be different items which can be purchased with each type of in-game currency, and each may be acquired in different ways.

Items can only be used in line with these Virtual Items Terms and within the game account in which they are purchased or otherwise acquired. You acknowledge that certain additional in-game functionality may only be accessible in exchange for “Gold”.

These Virtual Items Terms also apply if you win or are given any Virtual Items because you have participated in a gameplay feature, competition, survey or marketing campaign.

2. Where can I buy Virtual Items?

Some of our games let you buy Virtual Items in the game or from each game's webshop. You can recognise these games because they have an option to purchase Virtual Items in-game shop or, in the case of “Gold” and/or “Energy”, usually at the top of the specific game playing window. Games may allow you to buy different amounts of Virtual Items and may have temporary offers or sales for Virtual Item purchases.

Please note that when purchasing Virtual Items through one of our games, which you have downloaded from an app store, there may be additional terms and conditions which apply. You may be asked to agree to the app store provider's own terms and conditions, which will apply in addition to these Virtual Items Terms. We suggest you read app store terms carefully and follow the process provided by the relevant app store.

We do not permit third parties to give or sell Virtual Items outside of our games. Accordingly, as a condition to playing our games, you agree not to receive, purchase and/or use Virtual Items from such third parties. Any unauthorised Virtual Items that you purchase are subject to forfeiture at any time.

3. I am ready to buy Virtual Items – what do I need to do?

You can buy Virtual Items from us for real money if you are 18 years of age or older or, if you are under 18, have the permission of a parent or guardian. We may ask you to provide the details of your parent or guardian from time to time.

If you want to buy any Virtual Items, please follow the steps set out in the game which you have downloaded. If you experience any difficulties when purchasing Virtual Items, you can contact us [email protected]

Please note the following:

4. Can I transfer Virtual Items between app and website accounts?

Generally, no. The app and webshop accounts are not always linked, but in some cases, such as for Football Rivals and Basketball Rivals, the Coin wallets are linked. However, between our games there is no link, and if you purchase Virtual Items through one platform account, they will not appear in other platform accounts you may have with us.

5. How do I use my Virtual Items?

You can spend your “Gold” in order to acquire other Virtual Items within the game within which you purchased the “Gold”. When you use “Gold” to acquire another Virtual Item within a game, the relevant amount of “Gold” will automatically be deducted from your account that is connected with that game.

Other than “Gold”, the nature and duration of any Virtual Items will vary between and within our games. Some Virtual Items may only be used a limited number of times or only whilst you satisfy certain conditions within the relevant game.

6. What am I not allowed to do with my Virtual Items?

By buying Virtual Items, you agree not to:

Users are prohibited from holding and using Virtual Items in multiple accounts in any manner that is contrary to the general purpose of the Green Horse Games game and in violation of any relevant clauses of these Terms and Conditions.

You are strictly prohibited from giving, selling or otherwise transferring an account or any Virtual Items to any other person. Any violation or abuse of the account limitations will be flagged and may result in suspending or disabling your account or any other measures Green Horse Games deems necessary.

We may from time to time limit the use of Virtual Items, including applying limits to the number of Virtual Items allocated to your account at any time, and/or the number of Virtual Items usable or redeemable within a given time period.

7. What legal terms do I need to be aware of when I am purchasing Virtual Items?

When you buy Virtual Items, you are buying a limited personal revocable licence to use the Virtual Items. You agree that the Virtual Items do not constitute personal property and “Gold” are not legal tender or currency of any kind. All Virtual Items purchased by you are non-refundable. No interest is paid or earned on any “Gold” balance.

Green Horse Games is entitled to expire, withdraw, replace, restrict or otherwise change any Virtual Item at any time.

You have certain rights in respect of the Virtual Items. These include that we have the right to supply the Virtual Items to you and that the Virtual Items will be of satisfactory quality and as described.

You have certain legal remedies if we breach any of these rights. Nothing in these Virtual Items Terms is intended to affect these legal rights or other rights to which you may also be entitled.

If we are unable to resolve any disputes between us about your purchase of the Virtual Items or these Virtual Items Terms, you have the right to refer the dispute to the EU's Online Dispute Resolution platform at https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage.

8. Can I cancel my order once I have bought my Virtual Items?

By purchasing Virtual Items from us, you agree that we can transfer them to your account as soon as we can. By agreeing to these terms, each time you click to confirm a purchase, you acknowledge that you expressly consent to the supply of the Virtual Items immediately and acknowledge that you will lose your right to change your mind and cancel such order within the 14-day cooling-off period otherwise provided by law.

It is possible that you have successfully ordered and paid for your Virtual Items (including “Gold”), but you may not have received them. Please remember that during busy periods, it can take up to 48 hours before your Virtual Items are assigned to your account. If you are still having issues receiving your Virtual Items and you have not received them after a short period of time, please let us know by contacting us [email protected]

11. What should I do if someone has made an unauthorised purchase on my account?

You are responsible for the security of your account and ensuring that no unauthorised purchases occur on your account.
